Hm... As the first class in the alphabet that I'm familiar with (currently leveling my champion) I felt a bit of a worry when I started reading this. I'm glad at some things, and optimistically dubious about others. I am glad that the stances will become passives because, yes, they were more or less that already. I'd throw on Ardour and not look at it again the entire playtime (except those annoying times that I'd accidentally activate one of the other stances by miss-fire). I hope the benefits they give (in the case of Ardour, benefits such as the ICPR, decreased threat, extra fervour from Blade-wall, etc) remain the same. I work towards increasing the potency of my AoEs as well as building fervour (or reducing fervour costs) as much as possible, which makes Ardour exactly what I want.
Thanks, Jinjaah! Excellent dev diary. I am indeed excited to see how these changes play out for Champions.
