Balance

Basically, Bounty Hunters and Mercs are getting the stuffing beaten out of them at the highest levels. Most of the following changes are meant to make them more competative, while also improving damage scaling with Strength, Dexterity, and Technology, especially in the lower tiers of diminishing returns. While I think a long battle with plenty of strategic skill variety can be interesting, faster battles with more impactful hits will hopefully address the tedium of builds that rely on healing and energy loops to prolong battles far too long.

  • Stats - Note: While the damage ranges on the stats page may look similar, the effective damage in-game should be noticeable higher
    • Improved Dexterity scaling for Sidearms 
    • Improved Strength scaling for Primary
    • Improved Technology scaling for Bot damage
  • Bounty Hunter

    • Mark of Blood -- Improved HP gain by 2 per level, reduced cost by 10, and increased duration to 4 turns
    • Smoke Screen -- Improved Technology scaling by 1 (1 point of improvement for every 4 points of Tech) and added level scaling (1 point of improvement for every 2.5 levels over 20)
    • Massacre -- Reduce base energy cost by 20
  • Mercenary
    • Static Smash -- Improve strength scaling to add 1% of Energy conversion for every 4 Strength
