None of the elite specializations in Guild Wars 2 has been received wholly without comment or objection, and the Scrapper is no exception. Designer Irenio Calmon-Huang took to the forums recently to address player concerns, both by offering additional explanation regarding the Scrapper’s functionality and by assuring players that numbers and functions have been tweaked in places.
Hammer numbers have been tweaked for the spec: Electro-Whirl has been tuned lower, the autoattack is higher, and Shock Shield deals less damage whilst sporting an extra strike. The Medic Gyro has also already been tuned up, while the other gyros have their functionality clarified for players. If you were worried that the spec was too powerful or not powerful enough, check out the changes already being made and see if that affects your overall opinion.
