As promised, we’re providing more detail in to the balance and tweaks outlined in the 1.0.7 Patch Notes
Dodge tweak pass to remove kite-ability and edge-case slowdowns
- Removed linger time vs. ranged attacks (was 0.2s extra after dodge finished)
- Tuned dodge curves to maintain a slower end of curve to disallow chain-dodge move speeds above sprinting (no kiting for you)
- Limited speed mods to only scale speeds above normal movement speed to ensure low-rolled mobility weapons don’t get stuck in place
Talent balance pass, bleeding, and grenade amounts tuned.
- Tuned bleeds, stacking rules, durations, and damage output increase vs. Resilient and add the full range of stackable DoT functionality.
- Zealot: Crit bleed talent, increased bleed stacks to 2 (was 1)

- Veteran: increased bleed stacks on a grenade to 8 (was 2) - half of max bleed
- Veteran: Removed the ability for grenade impact to cause bleed. Only the explosion should cause bleeds.
