POWERS

Power Pools

The non-travel power pools have all received an additional 5th power which can be trained at level 14, provided you have also trained any two other powers in that pool. Additionally, several pools have had their powers revamped in an effort to increase their appeal. The list of all additions and changes includes:

Presence Pool

  • Revamped 1st Power: Pacify - You attempt to use your charisma and charm, or physically imposing presence, to "persuade" a single target that you're not a good choice to fight. This power has changed from a Single Target Taunt to a Single Target Placate. This Placate is weaker than the standard Stalker placate and will not hide the caster.
    • Pacify will no longer accept Taunt Enhancements.
  • Changes to 3rd Power: Intimidate - The endurance cost of this power has been reduced to 10 Endurance. The main PvE fear effect is now 3 Mag and the bonus fear effect has a 30% chance to add an additional 1 Mag fear. For Dominators, the bonus fear has increased from 2 Mag to 3 Mag.

This power grants a 30s boost to your damage potential, attack speed and recovery. Additionally, you will gain an unenhanceable Heal over Time. If this power is used when you've been defeated, Unrelenting will bring you back into the fight.

  • Changes to 1st Power: Boxing - ownership of Kick will increase this power's damage and its chance to stun. Ownership of Cross Punch will increase this power's damage and add an EndDrain/Recovery debuff effect to the target. Owning this power adds a chance for Brawl to apply attack speed and/or chance to hit debuffs to the target. Owning both Boxing and Kick doubles the strength of the Brawl debuff, but not the chance for it to apply.
  • Changes to 2nd Power: Kick - ownership of Boxing will increase this power's damage and increase its chance to knock the target down. Ownership of Cross Punch will increase this power's damage and add an EndDrain/Recovery debuff effect to the target.

Owning both Boxing and Kick doubles the strength of the Brawl debuff, but not the chance for it to apply.
  • New 5th Power: Cross Punch - You are an exceptionally capable fighter, striking out at your opponents in a quick, sharp blow that causes smashing damage. Ownership of Boxing will increase this power's damage and cause a small attack speed and accuracy buff on the caster when Cross Punch connects. Ownership of Kick will also increase this power's damage and cause a similar buff on the caster. Owning both Boxing and Kick doubles the strength of this buff. Owning this power adds a chance for Brawl to apply regeneration and/or recovery debuffs to the target.

Medicine Pool

  • Changes to the 1st Power: Aid Other - ownership of the 5th power in the Medicine Pool, Field Medic, will remove the Interrupt time from this power, allowing it to be cast immediately.
  • Revamped 2nd Power: Injection - in addition to its current role as an ally targeted buff, this power will gain the ability to be cast on a foe. When used on a foe, this power will cause reduce their attack speed, chance to hit and damage potential for 15s. The power's range has been increased to 40' and its interrupt has been removed. Additionally, the animation has changed and recharge slightly increased for a net lengthening of the cycle time, from 2.93s/10s to 1.46s/12s.

  • No changes were made to the following powers: Stealth, Grant Invisibility, Invisibility, Phase Shift.

Leadership Pool

  • New 5th Power: Victory Rush - You use the defeat of an opponent as an opportunity to rally your team, giving them a surge of adrenaline, boosting their recovery and lowering the endurance cost of powers temporarily. The strength of the buff applied to your teammates is unenhanceable and depends on the rank of the foe on which this power is cast, with Archvillains and Giant Monsters providing the largest bonus. No player can be affected by more than one Victory Rush bonus at a time, with the stronger effect always taking precedence. However, if a player does receive multiple applications of Victory Rush, these will persist and take over automatically when an earlier applied or stronger effect fades.
    • Victory Rush's recharge time cannot be enhanced.
  • No changes were made to the following powers: Maneuvers, Assault, Tactics, Vengeance.

Procs Per Minute Adjustments

Enhancements with a percent chance to trigger their unique effects (AKA procs) have been changed to use a standardized Procs Per Minute. In addition, all enhancements using procs per minute have a maximum 90% chance to trigger and a minimum proc chance equal to 5% plus an additional 1.5% per Procs Per Minute listed on the enhancement. Enhancement bonuses to recharge in a power now modify procs per minute, this means that your chance to proc is based on the power's actual recharge (excluding global recharge bonuses). To compensate some enhancements that use Procs Per Minute had their trigger rate increased by roughly 20%. In addition, powers with an area of effect will be penalized less which will result in a slight increase in proc chance. These changes will most likely result in an improvement in performance except in the most extreme situations.
