Will, CeCe and Pow walk into a bar....
So, with U10 Will stats changed and the way power is assigned to all classes was revamped. On other threads, posters are discussing the amount of power they have and in some classes, they do not run out of power, even in raids. ex: I have a lowbee mini - and their power in nearly 2.5 times their moral.
So, my question is: what does this mean for LMs?
Skill revamps are coming and class adjustments too. I have no crystal ball information about what WB/T expects LMs to do.
In the days of SoA, LMs where the power battery for raids like Rift. CC was good but burgs did it better. Then pre-U10, power wasn't all that much of an issue, but we still could top up a hunter or RK and our CC was reduced over numerous releases.
We have 2 skills for power donation and the new L83 one is power to a fellowship. But what's the point of that now? No one is really gonna run out of power. Tanks will need to retrait a bit to get theirs back but LM power donations is sort of moot.
So, we are back to CC but as much of our CC has been significantly minimized. We can no longer hold a boss in CC and on the moors the diminishing returns means CC is not that important. Brands and pots pretty much negate that aspect.
So with the Will, CC and Power changes, what role is there for a LM in the future?
Whoever says “I” creates the “you.” Such is the trap of every conscience. The “I” signifies both solitude and rejection of solitude. Words name things and then replace them. Whoever says tomorrow, denies it. Tomorrow exists only for him who does not seek it. And yesterday? Yesterday is Kolvillàg: a name to forget, a word already forgotten.
