The smartest thing they did was hold off on the 1.05 changes. Ironbreakers were livid at how much they were going to nerf our class. As it is now, I'm basically playing on the PTS and sending nonstop feedbacks to try and change some more of these nerfs. Order is underpowered anyway; why do they expect us to hold on whenthey nerf our only tank class?

It's no secret that Destro outnumbers Order on a majority of the servers. When Mythic decides to nerf a class that is responsible for Order barely hanging on, I don't see how you can doubt that Mythic favors one side.

The lower population does not mean that the whole side is underpowered. My guild swapped to Order to see what they were like, and there was no difference other than the people that played on each side.

Yes it does. I was not talking class balance, but realm balance. When one side is outnumbered by another 1.3 to 1, that side is underpowered. So, when one side is underpowered, what does Mythic do but announce sweeping changes to the one Order pure-tanking class that renders it virtually ineffectual on the battlefield of PvP. That will only further lead to imbalance and an underpowered Order, because many IBs will simply stop playing. Why bother sticking it out with a class that cannot generate enough Grudge to be effective?

what does realm population balance have to do with class balance?

When classes are nerfed to the degree that IB is getting nerfed, people stop playing them or stop rolling new ones. So now there is a void to be filled on Order.

When Order is already underpopulated, they have now lost more players to a class nerf. Now they are more underpopulated.

Class balance directly affects realm balance.

I've had my money in a 3% savings account for the past 15 years so this patch has no effect on me.

Whatever. Eventually 1.1 will be here and you'll realize your savings accounts is worth as much as a Engineer. Invest in a Bright Wizard today!

I honestly haven't looked into IB abilities, but the only thing I feel that needs to be nerfed on them is the AoE knockback. I don't think it's just them though...I think it should be across the board. Seemed like a cool idea at first when I heard about it. I pictured Sauron knocking dozens of troops around at the beginning of LotR, but in practice it's just unnecessary IMO. If anything lower the distance people are thrown.
