Application Of The Nerf Bat - Power & Balance Changes

Application Of The Nerf Bat - Power & Balance Changes - MMORPG.com

Cryptic Studios developers have posted an extensive description of forthcoming powers and balance changes, most notably to the Oeathbound Paladin and Devoted Cleric. This is the first round of changes with several more classes going "under the knife" soon.

The development team felt that the Oathbound Paladin has several abilities that can cause near immunity to damage and that reduce the need for healing, both for party and self. Combined with the Cleric's Gift of Haste, these abilities made attention to damage and healing nearly irrelevant.  As a result, the skill's duration and the percent of damage/healing has been reduced.  

Guardian Fighters have also been shown to be less effective than Oathbound Paladins. Developers are aware of this and are planning to make changes to several core skills that should make them as effective a tank as the Paladin.

You can read the full detailed description on Neverwinter forum.
