The lengthy update improves Alacrity, DoT and shield abilities for both classes, allowing players to attack faster, suffer fewer cost for DoT attacks and absorb damage better. Individual class abilities, such as the Inquisitor's Dark Heal and the Consular's Force Armor, are now more efficient. The update affects all skill trees as well and improves abilities throughout.
A new ability, Force Barrier, has also been added for the Sorcerer and Seer trees. Force Barrier allows players to nullify hostile effects and damage for up to 10 seconds.
