One step on the journey…

Nate Levy let the Shadow Warrior community know that we’d finally be getting a mirror to Aimin’ Quickly. So sometime in the future we will have a 1 second eagle eye as a bone thrown to us to keep us from canceling. It’s one of the multiple changes that I thought was needed as a bare minimum to bring the class more in line with the power curve of other RDPS classes. This is a first step, and a welcome one, but I’m not going to get all giddy over this move. It’s been a long time coming, and it’s not even 100% in game yet. I wait to see what other changes they herald in with it before being able to comment on the viability of the class.
It’s funny, but a week back I was playing my Knight in a guild group, and I commented on how much easier the class was to play than my Shadow Warrior. Just in terms of gameplay, and the level of attention I had to give to do what I was there for, and my guild leader scoffed a little bit when I said it. He plays a Knight at RR80, and an IB at RR70-something. He’s one of the best players I know in-game, and it surprises me when people as knowledgeable as him still don’t understand just how much more difficult the game becomes when playing a class like the Shadow Warrior in the current state it is in. If HE doesn’t really get it, what hope do I have of being able to get the point across the unwashed masses?
