Really? Handmaiden is god tier? God tier at soloing/speedrunning, sure, but she definitely isn’t god tier for normal legend runs. I like her a lot, mind you, but I’d definitely put her behind zealot/slayer/shade/ranged meta classes pre-patch.
For waystalker, she has everything you want, but most of her stuff isn’t that strong. Her kit is mostly “solid ult, ammo regen, and good weapons”. That’s good, sure, but something like bh’s crits provide far more raw damage output.
Also, for elf careers in general, the dual dagger nerfs will hurt most of the top tier builds, and the glaive changes could also end up being a nerf in practice. I’d be careful about calling for additional nerfs until we get a feel for how balance shakes out in practice.
Why keep temp health around? I enjoy the mechanic. Particularly with the changes, you have to get into melee in order to get temp health, but it gives you some much needed wiggle room if you are able to melee successfully. Bonus healing + temp health talents should be pretty damn solid on the right melee class. Generating a ton of temp health in critical moments can easily be more helpful than a slow trickle of healing and heal share. That said, I wouldn’t argue with natural bond reducing the self heal from healing items by 30% or something.
The comment about patch notes parsing was about my feedback, not yours.
