Balance Changes

Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out! These are not official notes.

  • Z-Drive Resonance (Passive) 
    • Slow by 30/40/50/60% for 2-3 seconds re-added.
