    good job depreciating the already lack luster and imo awful skill that is auto dodge field lmao
    field remain going to full 30s sounds nice for fibo and tebo

    ph buffs are fantastic.

    shunka dunka revival sounds nice, as does kanran buffs and kazan buffs.

    Wasn't the point of the Bo 85 skill to not need to put the fields on your bar? I think the 100% uptime from buffing field remain is just a side effect of them trying to make the fields more useful with everyone running around. Too bad the fields themselves still aren't that good for group support.

    Somehow, I don't think the changes to DB's are going to be enough to really improve its lot, unless that is one hell of a buff to Justice Crow.
    Ship 2:
    Katarin: GUmarl. Lethal precision with a whimsical streak
    "Save the day and look good doing it. That's what this job is all about!"

    Alessandra: FInewearl. A hyperkinetic, photon-fueled mayhem machine.
    "Oho! I actually felt that! You must be pretty strong!."

    At this point they might as well convert BO's Fields to regular buffs and also give them Long-time Assist and TE's lvl85 skill; then convert Atlas S4 skill to extending their duration to 240sec.

    That wouldn't make them much better for general group support.

    How about we just change the level 85 skill into duration extender. I don't think making the duration worth a damn exclusive to S4 would fix anything, just force Bo into one single S4.

    I'd say they are pretty substantial. More Critical Field uptime and less damage variance between gear 1 and 2 is a minor damage boost. Dispersion Shrike having more range and speed saves more time when needing to use it in the air for PA rotations. Justice Crow is interesting though. I imagine the guard frame will be pretty useful if you use it in the air or just want to hit things at range now (think Deus + PB Homing). I just hope the damage boost and utility is huge enough to consider throwing it into my palletes now. The Step Cancellation relaxation is just icing on the cake for more Dodge Auto Field procs but I still wish it just applied to Weapon Action.

    I like the changes on RA overall, but they're not enough. Satellite cannon needs an up in the charging time, if not, it needs to follow the target it locked on. Also, Power bullet should give a 35% damage buff to special bullet damage, and reduce their cooldown by 50%

    - 35% dmg upon WB hitting its target
    or
    - 35% overall dmg increase for 2 whole minutes that certainly isnt over the top
