    Kill Focus!

    Focus is absolutely useless (except for trolling), so the devs should do us a favor and delete Focus from the captain class.

    I haven't used my brain in a while, let's remove that as well...

    but serious, why would you want a skill removed that you don't need to use.
    I'd rather see it changed into something we CAN use, say a 5% tact mit...
    would be epic at BfE (since % DOES apply to capped chars )

    Trolling is rather what you are doing here, no?

    Anyway, given that they are going to trim some skills, it is an obvious candidate. It is a best of marginal use in the current game.. It could be improved (e.g. maybe outgoing healing would be a buff that could complement crits/parry), but it also could be axed.

    That's why.

    Let's give this worthless buff the Old Yeller treatment.

    Turning it into a +tac mit buff would be interesting, I think that would actually make the choice between the 3 buffs a little more situational.

    I could get behind a +tac mit rating increase for Focus.
    I would not want a percent increase. Too overpowered, and On Guard would then become the new Focus. The point to changing Focus is to give us three worthwhile buffs, not change around which one is currently useless.

    what would replace it?

    first i dont think we necessarily NEED 3 different buffs. Just like all classes really dont NEED 3 class traitlines (soon to be trees), but devs seem to think more is always better.

    Well, crit supports dps, parry supports tanking, so the last buff could support healing. How about +outgoing healing rating?

    Other ideas:
    -5% percieved threat
    +5% percieved threat
    -10% induction duration
    -5% attack duration

    Crit also supports heals, and pretty much all of these are available to us by other means. I think it would be awesome to incorporate some of these types of abilities through our buffing role without the use of a buff stick. If there is one thing that should be killed, it's the buff stick (without decreasing our effectiveness). Either that or give us Cappies an extra 1/2 bag for carrying all that extra &&&& around!

    Maybe revamp all three buffs into a multiple buff each: one for DPS w/ Outgoing DMG/Crit - Decrease AD , one for Tanking w/ Parry/Evade - Crit Defense, and one for Healing w/ Outgoing/Crit - ICMR/Decrease Skill Cost. Add the seperate parts of the buff as you level, kind of like they did with BoE. And then do something different with our BB Skills, more benefit to Leveling/Solo Cappies and better for Group Content this way as well?
