Eric Musco just updated the community about the upcoming changes for Concealment and Scrapper coming in Game Update 5.4.   Note: All changes below are currently in development and are subject to change before being released. Marauder Carnage Reduced the critical strike damage bonus granted by Sever from 15% to 10% Reduced the damage bonus to Ataru Form attacks granted by Ataru Mastery from 5% to 3% Sentinel Combat Reduced the critical strike damage bonus granted by Saber Storm from 15% to 10% Reduced the damage bonus to Ataru Form attacks granted by Ataru Mastery from 5% to 3% DevNotes: The Carnage/ Combat discipline was overperforming, so we reduced the effectiveness of two key passives to bring their DPS back in line with the target.

We will start by discussing the 3.2.1 changes to Defensive Forms. Defensive Forms: We know that this has been a sensitive topic for some time and found it pertinent to reassess the Utility and expand its functionality. By dividing the original buffs among multiple Utilities and removing the stance requirement, we…

SWTOR Update on Sentinel and Marauders

Eric Musco posted an update on the official forums regarding Sentinels and Marauders for PvP: Update on Sentinel and Marauder | 04.06.2015, 03:00 PM Hey folks, I know that some of you have been waiting for a status update on Maras/Sents, especially for PvP. Here is some info from the Combat team. — Hello everyone, We would like to take this opportunity to discuss Marauders/Sentinels and their present state in the game.

We target a 50% win rate for each Discipline in PvP, and…

Check out the post below: Following the changes to Marauders/Sentinels on PTS, we’re once again reaching out to the community for perspectives, opinions, and progressive ideas.

SWTOR: Marauder and Sentinel changes coming in game update 3.1.1

  Star Wars: The old Republic won’t see any changes to Marauder and Sentinel with game update 3.1, but rather 3.1.1. While this is not news worthy in it self, we find it quite interesting That Eric Musco posted this update.  BioWare does not usually provide set patch dates for specific class changes, but there is a first time for everything I guess. Check out the forum update below:   Sentinel and Marauder Changes | 01.16.2015, 09:45 AM Hey folks, We know there has been concern from the Sentinel and Marauder community about the status of their class, and when they might be receiving changes. Sents and Maras will see changes in update 3.1.1. As a secondary note, it is our plan that in some cases we will also put our minor patches (such as 3.1.1) on PTS. This way we can get some additional testing, especially around class changes. Thanks everyone!…

TOR TV: The Five Rules of Sentinel

Assassin / Shadow Top 3 Answers

  Here are the top 3 Assassin / Shadow Answers: Madness in PvP The Madness Assassin has been grossly revamped from its original state pre-xpac, which in turn has caused many players to become repulsed by its current playstyle. Due to the changes, Madness also suffered a dramatic hit in PvP, losing access to its Insta-Whirlwind utility and the loss of Maul procs which also goes to hurt its burst potential. In addition, the spec suffers from being far too easy to kill (having no true stealth benefits) with no real execution power to actually down targets beyond fluff damage, therefore making it seemingly a useless fighter on the field in comparison to what other classes / specs can do. With no team utility, lack of kill power and absurdly low survivability, what exactly is the purpose of a Madness Assassin on the battlefield? Are there any plans to alter…
