First complaints:
  • The assassin buffs look a bit over the top on first glance.
  • All the Warden focuses seem pretty useless now.
  • Can't find the reset button.
Other than that, Pyromancer changes look really good, glad to see my feedback on Vengeance being used and yay for Shockwave fix.
yay

Reset button only seems to reset the point you are spending before you apply it.

I like most changes, multishot focus b looks awesome :<

Is that only in the shadow realm? or Did Puncture get a flat dmg reduction? At work so can't check!

  • Can't find the reset button.


The reset button will only show once a migration process completes. This migration process can only occur when you play a multiplayer game on one of the Forge servers. Once you do that, the reset button should appear.
