Now, the forums seem to swirl and heave, and looking at the ele forum, it seems like the dev's are actually considering a few compromises (yay!)

There are a few changes in there that will effect my characters, but not too much. I like the change with Illusionist's Celerity. Will get me back at least 5 points back in to Inspiration and get Shattered Conditions or Restorative Illusions back.

I'm not sure about the Thief changes. More initiative is good, but losing Assassin's Reward by having it moved to the Grandmaster tier is :'( Well, the change to Opportunist means I'll probably drop that. Might drop also drop 5 points from Trickery to get it.

Not sure about the rest of it, I haven't played much GW recently.

I like some of the changes:

•Long Range Shot. Increased the damage at 500 range by 20%.
•Long Range Shot. Increased the damage at 500-1000 range by 15%.
•Nature Magic X – Enlargement. This trait now uses Signet of the Wild to trigger. This reduces the cooldown to 60 seconds and allow it to interact with the Signet of the Beastmaster and Signet Mastery traits.
But this change makes me sad:
•Wilderness 5 Natural Vigor. Reduced the increased endurance regeneration from 50% to 25%.
