DevNotes

The text below is a quote from SWTOR Combat Dev Team with their reason for the upcoming changes to this Discipline.

We adjusted Ordnance Expert / Assault Trooper to reduce the burst damage potential of the discipline, which also lowered its overall DPS. However, that change alone was not enough to bring the discipline down to its target DPS, so we reduced the periodic damage of two key abilities as well. The cumulative effect of these changes is that both the burst damage potential and sustained damage potential for Innovative Ordnance Mercenaries / Assault Specialist Commandos have been reduced by a fair amount to bring them down to their target DPS.

Overview and thoughts on the upcoming INNOVATIVE ORDNANCE Mercenary and ASSAULT Commando Class Changes coming with SWTOR Patch 5.3 in July. These are not final. Once the official Patch Notes are available and the Game Update is released, we will discuss them again in a new video.
