I'm not particularly interested in evaluating this as a nerf, but rather, curious what is really the driving motivation for the changes. With RoR, our power return skills were increased considerably, and now there's a strong reversal.
If you look at the rest of the classes, there is a general trend towards reducing the power-restore skills. What this seems to suggest is a movement towards having classes be more self-sufficient with power, especially by loading up on fate.
This raises questions about one of our main functions in a raid. I am nearly certain that the developers have discussed this issue among themselves. Assuming that this change to power restore was made fully aware of the LM role, what would be the underlying reason for these changes?
In the background is a further question about what are the upcoming "major" changes to all the classes.
