Balance Patch Summary
For a brief look at the changes, you can head over to our preview post that discussed the recent changes.
Everything in it went live - with the exception of , which was left untouched, and which was nerfed slighly less than announced.
This means Chaos Mirage won't disappear just yet - but does receive a significant nerf after all.
You can find the official patch notes here.
Condition Weaver is no longer interested in bonking enemies with Hammer, as it has fallen below Scepter and Warhorn's previous
42k DPS, which also maintains range as a notable advantage.
Condition Tempest with Hammer falls down to around
41k -- competitive with the specialization's Warhorn builds, but not offering range or support.
Engineers of the Condition kind have all been reduced.
Condition Holosmith, Condition Mechanist, and Condition Alacrity Mechanist have all lost ~
1k DPS, leaving them at
33k DPS respectively.

Condition Willbender will undergo a similar, but less severe DPS hit. Both builds' rotations should see minor changes to bridge the gap from today's patch to Guardian receiving Pistols at the end of February.
Condition Mirage's nerfs are far less severe than initially indicated, falling from
48.8k DPS to
45k DPS without allies. A substantial nerf, but the build has life left in it yet.
Dust off your Axes, its time to Confuse people.
Power Soulbeast's new contender, the Greatsword, looks to solidify itself between
42k, depending on the ending of the bench. A solid bump over its performance prior to today, but the weapon needs a bit more attention to be competitive with Hammer's current bursty performance.
Check out the video by Dingo, or the 'reverse' rotation by Hmod.
New benchmarks for Untamed are in;
It seems Lynx is the winner for the Condition Damage variant, while a combination of Fanged Iboga and Jungle Stalker is used for the Power variant.
For the Vindicator enjoyers of the world, the build loses approximately 2k DPS, leaving the current performance at
While not a DPS change, Revenant's Mace lost two blast finishers, meaning Heal Quickness Herald now takes less advantage of the Relic of Karakosa, on top of said relic receiving a nerf this patch.
Power Berserker can continue to spin to its' hearts content, as the build now sits at a comfortable
42.3kDPS, with an updated bench courtesy of Linsi.
Power Quickness Berserker now lives around the
37.5kDPS mark, leaving it as still one of the premiere options raw damage among Quickness DPS builds.
