I think what he is asking is for a more in depth discussion that some of the other class leads are having, not just changes on the ptr with small blurb on why they changed it. If you look back in the dev tracker the class leads have been extremely engaging with those classes. They only thing I can think of why we more than likely won't see as much engagement is due to Meerkats comment they they feel that engineers are just about right where they want them. Hopefully this means they will be bring class below us (not many) to our level and bring those classes are leaps and bounds above us down to our level.
This is exactly it. Every other class has pages and pages of individuals who have brought issues up, and have had feedback and responses from the leads.
Engies are extremely lacking in that regard. Even honest and open discussions would be beneficial; we are perceived as the dying breed, and often brought just to provide others crit buff.
Meerkat, I wanted to raise two issues, and wanted feedback:
Are there any plans to re-evaluate this useless AMP? First off, mechanically, it doesn't even work right. It should apply with a 'Basic Attack' - what constitutes a basic attack? Currently, this is classified as pulse blast. Additionally, it will only refresh itself after the previous debuff has fallen off?
Will this AMP be redesigned completely, or be allowed to stack with other armor debuffs?
Other classes are based on having their main ability being used while others are on cooldown. Spellslingers through our quick draw while waiting for their CDs; Espers have TK Strike, etc etc.
This ability seems pretty useless all around. Will this change anytime in the future, or is it always destined to be a tool used for the pre 20s and then never again?
