This patch to me was long overdue and brought a some good quality of life changes to the game. Biggest change would be the another class balance targeting the most unpopular and neglected classes. Now JP decided to bring this early but of course they are only 2.5 to 3 months behind TW compared to Aeria being 1.5 years behind. Regardless of that I still think it would be a good idea for the future of the game to bring this patch earlier at least by some amount. Patch details listed below for those unfamiliar with it.
