Minor changes to sunsinger, voidwalker, and striker skilltrees. No, these are not suggestions, they just happened.

So, I took a look over at my beta characters to mull over the skilltrees and do some fun theorycrafting. I noticed at this point that flame shield for sunsinger only requires a hit now, not a kill. I was like "huh, what about the others?" I checked the voidwalker tree, and surprise: bent gravity isn't even a thing anymore. In its place was angry magic, moved from the last column. Speaking of the last column, void mastery is there now. and in the first passive column, an entirely new skill: annihilate. This makes your vortex grenades and super aftermath bigger. Titan Strikers have had the name of the skill "illuminated" changed to "amplify." Oh yeah, also no more locking in classes, sorry Datto, new video is already out of date.

    Oh my. Defender's "Gift of Light" melee upgrade: [i]"While Force Barrier is active all your melee kills create Orbs of Light."[/i]

  • Surge for Voidwalker has also been changed to only require damage and not a kill. It also has changed from being a boost to movement speed to a boost to both movement and weapon speed. What does the game mean by "weapon speed"? I don't know.

      • Flame shield is automatically the go to skill for Scorch now. Don't underestimate damage reduction.

      • I'd expect this kind of thing from a game that hasn't launched yet

        • A skill in the Blade Dancer class was changed from weapons readying up faster after melee to readying immediately. (It's called Qucikdraw)

          [url=http://www.bungie.net/en/Forum/Post/68151098/0/0]Posted about this earlier and it got drowned.[/url] Annihilate sounds both good and bad. I feel like they only added that upgrade because they shrunk the base blast radius; [i]really[/i] hope that's not the case. If they [i]didn't[/i] nerf the base radius...Nova Bomb's going to be a nuke and Vortex Grenades are gonna be terrifying.
