    The reimbursement they did got me 72 divine shards and 15mil gold, and I recently went to an odachi build from the dual swords, so I’m pretty happy with the changes so far. Nothing got hit really hard with the nerf hammer, just readjusted a little so it’s not so OP.

    I figured they would nerf Ninjitsu…

    I can’t complain because it kind of needed it.. but damn. I don’t care about it in PVP but if it’s nerfed in PvE to uselessness, it would make my Iga build obsolete.

    I had plenty of ninjutsu users in co-op yesterday, and they are still pretty lethal. Not quite the level they were, but they could still kill stuff way faster than I could. Went from a one shot to a two shot kinda thing.

    Ninjutsu is still crazy powerful in PvP too. Those machine gun kunai still shred health, even through guard. I didn’t notice any difference post patch when facing the same people who ninja spam in the arena all day long.

    Windstorm and blade spin are now significantly weaker, so people relying solely on either will now have to hit other buttons on their controller. This probably won’t stop the multitude of players who like to charge recklessly into the spinny whirlwinds of death from complaining about them though.

    Sign of the Cross is actually stronger now.. Despite it supposedly being nerfed?

    Odachi is now the most common weapon in the arena now because of the buffs.

    Windmill is now useful in PvP because of the added stagger factor.

    All weapons in PvP are now +0 regardless of your actual upgrade level.

    Quick change scrolls now last all of about two seconds(not actually) in PvP, so you now need to pay attention to the timer instead of just "Set it and forget it!". Totally love this change.

    The delay between casting abilities and using items has been increased significantly, with the exception of throwing weapons of course.

    If you don’t wear the Tatenashi set it’s now more beneficial to have ‘Equipment weight damage bonus A’ instead of ‘Agility damage bonus A’ on your ranged weapons, assuming you’re at B agility.
