The problem with restraining speech is, who gets to set the rules? If it's only okay in a certain time or place, who gets to say what time and what place?

If you're robbing a bank, and your pants fall down, I think you should laugh, and let the hostages laugh too. Because, come on. Life is funny.

Why would they nerf Barrier's detonation damage? Bad enough its associated challenge requires double the points Tech Armor's does.


They didn't though...

500>350

Perhaps you're confused as to the meaning of the word "Increased".

Valkyrie: good I guess. Would have preferred something more substantial
Havoc strike: can I stagger phantoms when choosing the rank 6 area evolution now? If so, cool. If not, meh.
Scimitar: who the hell cares?
Barrier: double meh.

The Barrier challenge was insanely easy though, just spec a Kroguard's Barrier for detonation rather than protection and you can probably clear it in a silver game with a group, or by wave 5 solo.

At 200% the cooldown is particularly short, and it staggers a decent radius so you can spam safely.

The Tech Armor challenge carries considerably more risk since you don't have the near invincibility Kroguard provides to fall back on.
