Named Legendary Void Gauntlets are BOE

TITLE: VOID GAUNTLET ABILITY COOLDOWNS REDUCE EXTREMELY FAST ON CRIT

  • What is your character name in the PTR: TrashPandaPT
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: PTR
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Void gauntlet abilities are almost instantly off cooldown the moment you attack something. I do have the perk that reduces cooldowns on crit, but it seems to not work as intended. There is a major difference in the reduction between PTR and regular realm. It is as if the abilities have no cooldown.

  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: This makes the VG extremely powerful as you can spam abilities
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Hit an mob with the VG blade

Abilities can no longer be used when the weapon is sheathed, is super annoying.

yeah, this is not good to hear. light armor wearers use the dodge animation cancel constantly and end up with no weapon equipped. now they cannot attack until they hit an additional button to equip.

I really hope this is a bug, on live you can use any ability with the weapon sheathed, it just works. It would be really bad if you had to unsheathe every time.
