I noticed that some of my abilities on beta are significantly weaker than they should be even when factoring in the potency loss compared to live.

Potency on live: 122,424.7%
Potency on beta w/ removal of base potency multiplier: 64,818.9% = 52.95% of live potency value.

All other modifiers which affect ability damage in the examine window are identical between beta and live (or close enough to not create more than a 1% deviation). Agility, ability mod, potency, spell quality, and base damage from AAs (additive with potency) are the only variables which affect damage in the examine window for an assassin.

  • Live damage values on abilities:

Is it intentional for one of the most underwhelming dps classes of the last expansion to receive nigh across-the-board nerfs? Did other classes receive similar undocumented reductions?
