Someone always gets upset, I don't let it get to me.
Class changes are coming to Star Wars: The Old Republic with the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion. Today, BioWare revealed what it has in store for players of the Bounty Hunter and Trooper persuasion. All Powertechs and Vanguards get Jet Charge/Storm as a baseline ability in order to catch fleeing targets, while Mercs and Commandos get a new ability which allows them quickly disengage.

There are further tweaks, but BioWare says that the ones listed in today’s post “are not final, and changes may (and likely will!) occur.”

Nice tweaks. 
Finally Jet Charge being a basic ability for all Powertechs! Now my AP PT will be complete. Not to mention the new Translocate ability is an excellent ‘save’ move for, let’s say, when your healer is in trouble. 
And the Rocket Out ability is also something Mercs needed since the beginning. 
Nicely done Bioware.

Except now it’s level 61.  Going to suck if you enjoyed actually leveling.

We don’t use Hydraulic Overrides for mobility. We use it for physics immunity. Just another illustration of how the developers of this game have no idea how it works, or is played.

Wooo, something that should have been baseline since day one is finally added!

Now I’m genuinely curious to see what they have in store for Sages and Sorcerers. Mobility seems to be the order of the day for the other classes; TK/Lightning is already a highly mobile spec, but Balance and Madness could use an assist on that front.

BH means Breast Holder in norwegian, so my thoughts are kind of wandering off topic at the moment. Ha-ha.

Strategy. That’s what pvp is and should be all about. Imbalances are stupid.
