Title. No reason for it not to have it now considering the Sword & Dagger has kept it ever since they added it for both weapons but removed it for the Dual Swords. Just a nice quality of life change to make the weapon feel more fluid to use.
Edit: ok I went back and tried the dual swords again. I was a bit harsh in my judgment of it. disregard my suggestions for it in the section “Old part of post.” I hadn’t used it much since WoM, so my perception of the weapon was skewed. Although I have to admit that the stagger change really hurts its crowd control capabilities vs armored elites considering you can’t stun them anymore with heavies; only a crit headshot will flinch them for a second
Edit edit: actually pretty good with Assassin + Exquisite Huntress Shade, can recommend if you want good horde clear with mobility while having pretty good damage vs armored elites if you headshot them

On a side note, honestly I’d like to see a buff to it’s chaos warrior/armor killing power, considering it is one of, if not the worst CW/armor killing weapon in the game. A suggestion would be to give it a new push attack like they did for Kruber/Saltz Greatsword (or just buff the one it has now again), so it doesn’t gain easy access to armor damage which would blur the horde clear identity of the weapon (of course Handmaiden would be able to, so maybe this isn’t the best option); or they could make heavy 2 do more cw/armor damage, but make it so that you can’t bypass the first heavy. Or something entirely else. I’m down for anything to make this weapon work on Cata (quickplay that is; you could make it work with a premade). The only way I can see it being semi-viable now is running Piercing Shot Waystalker with longbow for killing armored elites and Piercing Shot for CWs (implying you don’t miss which is very easy to do mid combat) and Shade with Cruelty + Assassin and Cloak of Pain to kill 2 CWs (but of course you need to wait 60 seconds to do anything meaningful to them after that).
Edit: forgot to clarify which greatsword in first suggestion
