Atrius, RIFT’s Warrior Lead Developer, gave players an update yesterday regarding the buffs and fixes Warriors will see in the upcoming 2.1 patch. Some of these changes are a direct result from the data and feedback collected after a recent hotfix. Others are focused on tank balance, DPS balance, and bug fixes. Here’s that update:
Originally posted by Atrius (Source)We have been working on a couple things over the last few days and wanted to let you all know some changes coming to the Warriors in 2.1, which is just around the corner.
There have been several bug fixes, these are just some of the ones I have seen talked about here.Electricity Blast – Only able to be used by one member of a raid. This will be fixed in 2.1Hardened Defenses – Giving too low of a bonus. This will be fixed in 2.1Accord of Power – Duration is not increased with Energy Retention. This will be fixed in 2.1Empowerment – Not giving the enhanced Endurance buff. This will be fixed in 2.1Unstable Reaction – Not generating Aggro properly. This will be fixed in 2.1.
We will also be adding in a few buffs.Void Knight – Will be getting another 5% bonus to Endurance.Tank Mitigation – Warrior tank mitigation currently seems to be about 10% behind the Cleric and the Rogue. We have been looking into this and will have it fixed for 2.1.Paragon Damage – This is currently behind by a significant amount, it will be buffed for 2.1.
We are also looking into other issues and these will not be the only changes. I just wanted to give you all a preview of some of what to expect.
