    Why the need to turn everything into easy mode?

    I presume that they're looking at how many players are running the dungeon and want to get more players running them. If people who couldn't handle those mechanics can now complete the dungeons (and maybe they weren't even attempting to run them because some mechanics are such a PITA), what's it to you?

    They want every piece of content to be extremly easy, so that even a toddler without eyes and hands can complete it.

    Barbarian: Sure Strike no longer incorrectly shows a 0 damage hit in the combat log. (This doesn't affect damage dealt.)
    certainly it was a pity to give him some more damage given the enormous strength of his dpsXD
