Editor's Note: Please note that this article is still being worked on for formatting and presentation. All patch notes have been added for all skills, but skills still need to be evaluated for net buffs or nerfs. Additionally, I also want to write a description for all skills, including pictures for new skills. Finally I want to add level charts for every skill in the game. So while the information below is correct, there will be better and clearly infromation coming soon (tm).
