    Not until after pirates. But I'm supposed to "not discuss anything" from ACC, so if anyone asks just say Cooper or Aerek leaked pirates, not me. What does NDA stand for anyway? It can't seriously mean Not Discuss Anything.

    I want it so badly :(

    Jesters would actually have to be jesters and you'd be able to separate the clever from the "lolducks" dolts.

    And it'd get rid of one of their two duplicate skills.

    It's the magic of the forum game of Telephone.
    1) There's been mention of a fairly major shaman rework upcoming.
    2) There have been rumours surrounding that rework of shaman losing vodun (no basis for them, as far as I know, but the rumours exist).
    3) Shaman and jester (basically) share a skill in vodun/puppetry
    4) ....
    5) ....
    6) ....
    7) Jester is getting a rework and losing tarot.

    That or someone just made it up to troll people.
    Monks are losing the ability to wield rapiers? Damn

    I really like the ideas of a performance-related skill with an emphasis on using trickery to secure advantages in combat and keep your opponents guessing. I would be sad to see either tarot or puppetry go, though--tarot has a neat connection to jester history and seems to be thematically appropriate (even if some of the flavor is a bit demonic), and puppetry is nice because it gives jesters an option for slow prep that they can use while they hinder and dodge around.
