Damage reduced slightly.
Cost reduced slightly.




Seriously wut. It wasnt OP to begin with. So is it going to be doing 1 DPS instead of 3 DPS?

    I don't know. The idea is you can use the power with other powers more easily and focus less on energy management while at the same time keeping dps in line with other sets. However, since we don't know the numbers, I can't say if this is good or bad. Ultimately, it won't be a big deal at all since the tweaks are so small it won't really have a big effect.

    Thats exactly my point.

    PA changes don't seem to be about "fixing" one OP power, but rather making the whole set work together in a more "even" fashion. So, yeah, the tweaks might mean little to each individual power.

    The devs are focusing and bringing the attack powers in two themes: "beams" and "missiles" so that's why they are changing. To be relevant about minigun, which used to stack a damage resist debuff 3 or 4 times with its advantage was reducing Crushing and Particle Damage by roughly 23%, and if paired with Burn Through from Chest beam you have an additional 12- 13% of stacking debuffs. That was seen as overperformed, I guess.
