Any chance at a re-vamp or a look at the initial AA in the scout lines:

Sorc's get a pet for re-use, cc or de-hate.

Druid's get a shapeshift for Heal Pot, CC or dps.

Brawlers get a 5% speed buff

Warrior's get a heal + dmg increase

Chanter's get a mana flow

Cleric's get a DPS buff

Now, Bards get an HO speed up?! Rogues get a Pick Pocket which returns....silver at best? Predators get Bounty...silver back for killing a mob.

Anyone else think this is a little off?

Honestly those silvers do add up. Especially when you have a huge kill count. That said, the HO speed up is a joke as is most of the starters in general. theres honestly no real reason to even have them there other than to force you to sink a point into a relatively poor and long outdated ability. The +4 or +5 or w/e to your main stat change was supposed to make putting those points there suck a bit less, but it still tastes pretty sour sinking that point for a garbage ability and effectively 2 extra points of damage per ability.

Yeah, it's definitely imbalanced. I have a vague memory that this was complained about when AAs were put in. Though, most scouts did like pick pocket. When AAs first came out, those silvers quickly turned into gold. I could make a few gold from doing Halls of Fate. But the economy was very different then, and a few gold bought you a lot more then it does now.

While over the years I must have made a few plat from pick pocket, I would much rather see something more in keeping with what other classes have. Certainly, bards need something lots better, though HOs aren't without their use.

Unfortunately, I don't see it ever getting changed after all this time. Of all the things people want changed and the devs are working on, this would have to be way at the bottome of the list.

That's my main complaint. I saw the use of the pick pocket/bounty back in the day when the economy was different and a couple silver was worth it, but completly pointless now. I'd have to kill thousands of mobs just to make a plat, which would have cost me about 10p in arrows just to do that SMILEY. Also, 5 sec vs. 10 sec to cast an HO? Yay! Game winner right there!
