    Looks like captain might be a bit harder to play now, I'm liking these changes they seem pretty well thought out.

    For the most part they look like positive changes. The only two things I'm worried about are the new buffing (how potent the main buff is compared to the rest) and SotD (hoping it ends up at the top of the yellow line vs near the bottom).

    I keep thinking I must have read it wrong....they are taking away our buffs right? (crit, power, perry) They will only be executed with other skills we already have and it only happens when in group, right?

    Most of the people I know who play cappy as main, myself included, think half of the joy of doing so is being able to randomly buff people (and especially friends) and put a smile on their face. How can they take that away from us? *cry*


    The trait lines sound fine. I have especially adored playing captian in Rohan because of the HOH armor set bonus. I am concerned that with it going away we might not be able to heal as well. It was hard to heal 3 mans in Isn, so much so that I just logged onto my RK or Mini. I like having the choice to stay on my cappy...but time will tell.

    I'm cautiously optimistic. While we don't know the exact details (things may change in beta, etc) it seems like their heart is in the right place. I like what they're shooting for, but it remains to be seen how effective the implementation is.

    People do seem overly bent out of shape about not getting everything in one line. They seem to forget that Cappy's don't have stances, so we can trait a little bit of everything.

    I never had any problems healing in Isen. It was a little tougher in the 3-mans, sure, but much more rewarding. Foundry was a joke to heal, people were doing like 1cappy5champ runs through there (myself included).

    My main concern is that this is the end of the cappy as Swiss Army Knife/FS crisis management. That's how mine is built currently - 1H+shield, 5b/2r, heals like a boss and can tank through healing aggro but can't DPS worth squat, and I'm fine with that.
