    If you study the DW kit, you'd notice they literally have almost no other direct prones. A prone is useful in a post-lock situation, because you can still do a lot of stuff if you're standing even while paralyzed. Imagine if you locked someone with a passive cure and they could just loop touch shield and you had no way of getting past that. It would be really frustrating.

    Imagine DW having a drawback.

    It's pretty stupid that they'd change clumsiness to remove both affs, thus removing the ability for psion to bury any afflictions.  I know a lot of people think psion's pretty overwhelming which is an argument we can have, but to silently change clumsiness to affect prepares, without any input (if that's what happened, rather than this being a bug) is a bit.... wtf mate.

    Sounds like it was a bug, and is fixed- though prepare won't proc on reflection still.

    It's worse than that, in that the prone only comes if they didn't raze. So like, if they attempt to raze, and you don't have a shield, you get proned. Else it's just a raze.

    And yeah I don't get it either. Maybe for groups?

    Actually, you have to select whether or not you try and use it to prone, it won't auto-prone if you try to raze shield and fail.

    As far as the DW raze itself goes, though, it's not actually that bad. Shield seems to be targeted to take about 1 second to break, which can either take the place of one affliction or be one second on its own. Razeslash breaks shield and delivers an aff, but at around a 2 second balance, for instance. There are some classes with better breaks, but DW's isn't super out of line with the others.

    Maybe he'll boost the PvE damage to compensate?

    The damage is fine, in my opinion, they just bugged the balance. Especially unartied.

    anyone here I can pester for some DWC questions? Thinking about switching up classes specialisations and I've got a few stuff I wanted to ask in messages (so I don't clog up this thread). Thanks in advance!
