You are right, it would push many order careers up. Like it does to destro careers but everybody keep comparing careers one to one, never taking this into account.
So i guess it's not a problem after all ?
pushing up SM/AM is NP, WL also probably fine
the Issue is pushing the top dogs even higher on their pedestals looking down on the rest from both realms (BW/SL... and also RSW would recreate issue in the morale drain department something that was stripped back massively on destro) this is what i mean when talking about ripple effect and not changing things blindly (or without any foresight to see potential issues)
Because order have these top dogs for raw damage it makes balancing their faction pretty complex, especially when the non top dogs are usually the ones which are nerfed... its a juggling act and with all the changes over the years, BW/SL still prop up order...
Destro careers pushed up... well sorc lost IW spam for it so thats a big loss
Magus is fluff dmg and doesnt need
RSH is ST doesnt need
Choppa doesnt have a skill like ID... and spams lotsa choppin and has its own CDR so doesnt really gain
Mara gains a little but is mostly demo spam noob
welf is ST
the main gainer is MSH and shammy, big bouncing and fodg... MSH is moderate damage dealer despite being supported, and shaman can put out alot of healers in the right circumstances but is a hard class to play in comparision to dok/zealot...
the other main gainer is slight counter to shatter limbs watered down version
If IW machine gun was back in the game, you would be pissed and destro would do better in forts... IW machine gun with ons/sov sorcs and 24 target cap would be so glorious and so much cries for nerf... its why this was traded off.
back on topic SM is clunky and because of this my least favourite tank, its main purpose is WW / support bot in large scale, if rotation for WW was refined without breaking game balance it would be interesting... how you do it without pushing SL/BW further into the red zone (and rsw morale drain) i dont know, probably why dev's havent done it yet and the whole mirror debate thing which sometimes happens sometimes dont.
