Juggernaut

Rage

  • Force Lash now deals 100% more damage
  • The bonus critical chance given by Brutality to Vicious Throw and Furious Strike has been increased from 5% to 10%

Guardian

  • The damage done by Freezing Force due to the Persistent Chill utility has been reduced by 60%

Focus

  • The bonus critical chance given by Swift Slash to Dispatch and Concentrated Slice has been increased from 5% to 10%

DevNotes: Chilling Scream / Freezing Force was doing too much damage with the Piercing Chill / Persistent Chill utility. It was being used as a single-target rotational ability when its intended use was multi-target AOE, so we reduced the damage it deals with Piercing Chill / Persistent Chill. To make up for the DPS loss, we increased the damage of Force Lash by 100%. Additionally, we increased the critical chance on two key abilities through a passive to give the discipline some additional damage potential and bring them in line with the DPS target.
