Hope you’re not too attached to your elite skills in The Secret World, because change is coming. Big change. Sweeping, epic reform that in undoubtedly the product of a vast conspiracy that goes to the top of every world government… or at least is part of Funcom’s to-do list.
Patch notes on the test server forum note that these changes will be mostly positive: “For this revamp, we’ve decided to take a step back and look at all of our elite abilities as a whole. Our focus was to ensure that the elite abilities are something you always want to use and will provide a damage increase when used in a rotation. To that end, we’ve rebudgeted nearly every elite ability to perform at nearly the same level of DPS over the course of an extended fight. What this results in is a cooldown reduction and damage increase for the majority of elites.”
Bombardment, plague, and elemental force will be nerfed with the patch. Specific changes to the skills, both good and bad, are noted in the thread.
