This week we were treated to a few hotfixes including a tuning change for Outlaw:
- Outlaw: [With maintenance in each region] Damage of the following abilities increased by 4%: Ambush, Ghostly Strike, Killing Spree, Death from Above, Saber Slash, Pistol Shot, Between the Eyes, Run Through, Cannonball Barrage.
- Outlaw: Loaded Dice buff duration increased to 45 seconds (was 15 seconds).
- The Artifact Trait “From the Shadows” will no longer keep the Rogue in combat after using Vanish, and will stop damaging targets affected by Blind.

Developers’ notes: Our overall goals here include smoothing out Energy regeneration and reducing the frequency of both resource drought and Energy capping.
Developers’ notes:Our overall goals are to remove uncontrolled player teleport from the baseline DPS rotation, to reduce the frequency of teleporting in PvP, to allow players to choose between more frequent or more impactful Shadow Dances, which equates to more frequent CC/utility or damage in PvP, to keep the PvE rotation engaging, and to make Symbols of Death more engaging.
