This is for Enmasse to read and review so corrections can be made. If anyone else has more to add, feel free to post here. I'll be prioritizing information on class skills, rather than items or the like. This is only intended to be a helpful thread, so please keep posts informative and positive.

Many of these are wording changes or grammar mistakes. A few listed are negligible description changes. Some, however, like the warrior tooltips, have several errors throughout.

Archer

Arrow, Penetrating Arrow, Poison Arrow, Radiant Arrow, Rapid Fire, Restraining Arrow, Web Arrow: (PvP) Reduces damage at max distance.
Error: Should not be the case anymore (needs confirmation)

Edit: This is still a thing.

Stunning Trap: (Description)
Error: Does not describe area of effect.

Edit: As AoE is lesser range now, may not be necessary, however the long-ranged traps still indicate that they have an area of effect against multiple targets.

Thunderbolt: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Final Salvo as a chainable skill.

Berserker

Combo Attack: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Raze as a chainable skill.

Overwhelm: (Inherent chains)
Error 1: Does not list Raze as a chainable skill.
Error 2: Does not list Flatten as a chainable skill.

Punishing Strike: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Flatten as a chainable skill.

Raze: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Flatten as a chainable skill.

Brawler

Counter: (Glyph: Powerlinked Counter) Increases all skill damage by 50%...
Error: Should now be 40% after recent nerf.

Edit: Is not a problem.

Jackhammer: (Description)
Error: Does not specify how much endurance is reduced by.

Gunner

Arc Bomb: Lob a bomb up to 14m...
Error: Arc Bomb has much longer distance, up to 23m.

Blast: Fire a shot which explodes on impact or up to 20m away.
Blast: (Description)
Error 1: Has effective range between 22-23m.
Error 2: Does not specify that it can be used to cancel skill animations.

Rolling Reload: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Rocket Jump as a chainable skill.

Time Bomb: Fire a shot that explodes on impact or up to 20m away...
Error: First hit of Time Bomb has a longer distance, up to 22m

Lancer

Leash: (Description)
Leash: (Inherent chains)
Error 1: Does not specify stun in tooltip.
Error 2: Master's Leash is not directly chainable from Leash. It only makes it available for usage.

Shield Counter: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Spring Attack as a chainable skill.

Mystic

Aura of the Merciless: ...doubling the crit factor...
Error: Does not, in fact, raise crit factor by 2x of base crit, but 2.1x instead. Should be reworded accordingly.

Metamorphic Smite: (Description)
Error: Does not mention ability to knock down.

Shara's Lash: Cast a bolt of Sharan energy forward 10m...
Error: Explodes ~12m with a radius of ~6m, effective up to 18m.

Priest

Final Reprisal: Activates faster if...
Error: Does not list Metamorphic Blast in description.

Plague of Exhaustion: ...for some of the skills...
Error: Should be specifically melee or short-ranged skills.

Reaper

Error: Does not list Grim Strike as a chainable skill.

Pendulum Strike: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Grim Strike as a chainable skill.

Error: Does not list Grim Strike as a chainable skill.

Smite: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Grim Strike as a chainable skill.

Whipsaw: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Grim Strike as a chainable skill.

Slayer

Eviscerate: Deals powerful damage and knocks the opponent down...
Error: Negligible, but only knocks down when chaining from another skill. Staggers otherwise. Again, negligible wording difference.

Headlong Rush: (Description)
Error: Increases attack speed of next skill used by 60%. Not described as such.

Whirlwind: Spin with your sword, hitting targets within 3m.
Error: First hit can hit 4-5m, second hit can hit up to 7m.

Sorcerer

Backstep: (Inherent chains)
Error: Does not list Magma Bomb as a chainable skill.

Nova: ...and you are less likely to get staggered or knocked down...
Error: Nova gives full stagger/kd immunity.

Painful Trap: (Description)
Error: Does not indicate ability to knock down.

Warrior

Warrior general: Separating PvE edge and PvP edge is redundant as there's no difference between edge generated in PvE and PvP.

Binding Sword: Throw your sword to snare up to 4 enemies with 24m...
Error: The range is 21m, not 24m.

Cascade of Stuns: If you hit a stunned target, the stun spreads to nearby enemies.
Cascade of Stuns: (Inherent chains)
Error 1: Also functions the same way on sleeping targets.

Error: Rain of Blows gives full stagger/kd immunity.

Reaping Slash: (description)
Error: Does not specify that it can stun targets in PvP that are immune to stagger/knockdown.

Traverse Cut: Make quick 3 lunges to the front. Activates faster and attack up to 13 times if you first use...
Error: "...and attack up to" is grammatically incorrect (should be "attacks"). Could also be phrased better.

Please get on this. This is important stuff for newer players (and some older ones as well).

Well you could also change the tooltip on Warrior's Charging Slash to take off the part where it says it draws aggro because it doesn't. I actually had a run where this Warrior was taking threat from this Brawler and the Brawler told the Warrior to stop using Charging Slash because it pulls aggro ACCORDING to the mislead tooltip. ;;

Except I've still been kd/staggered in the middle of nova in CS, unless brawler skills are just so broken that they ignore kd/stagger rules entirely. Do think I've been kd by tank fire in the middle of nova, though. Maybe the "less likely" to "completely immune" bit was something BHS changed and didn't document? Wouldn't be the first time they changed how something worked without telling anyone (remember the AoE back damage change they did for a while (before undoing the change)? Hailstorm and rain of arrows only needed the center of the circle to be behind the boss to count, rather than requiring the player to be behind+facing)

Not related to class skills but something I noticed while leveling.

When you do your first run of Cultists' Refuge the green fairy thing gives you nostrums. This was never updated when we switch from the two different nostrums to the Battle Nostrum. For at least healing classes it still says to use rangers nostrums. It's not a big deal but might be confusing to newer players.

The actual mail sent needs to be updated too.

Skills that "push" don't constitute staggers technically. Not initially, anyway. Once you're in "pushed" status, you're free to be staggered. I'd have to test this idea, but as far as I know, skills such as brawlers using the third chained Counter or Ground Pound or Thunderbolt or Zenobia's Vortex or Time Bomb might ignore superarmor on RoB/WW/HT/KDS/Nova. I'll get back to you on that.

Normalizing for poison blade, vortex slash, torrent of blows, scythe (0), leaping strike, and pounce:

Binding sword, death from above, charging slash, rain of blows, traverse have actual damage that is greater than the tooltip

Cascade of stuns and rising fury have actual damage that is less than the tooltip

Revised my earlier post on archer. And about my post earlier; Thunderbolt has no effect on superarmor skills so I can confirm that much. I'm almost certain brawler's third Counter ignores superarmor minus Kaia, but I'll test this too.

Do you have any info on specific base damage amounts?

I just entered a bug for this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

I previously looked for all the instances of the old Nostrums being given out, but that was all datasheet editing. I should have looked into the parcel messages too. My bad.
