Big patch/Updates  
BALANCE ADJUSTMENTS
Adjustments have been made to the functioning of various talents in order to curtail undesirable behaviours and imbalance.

Overview

Modifications to shield skill behaviours

Shields now take significantly more damage in PvP.
Shields now irresistibly disorient their user when broken.
Excluded shields from the In-Sync Talent

In-Sync and Perfectly In-Sync no longer trigger from shield skills.
The text of these talents has been updated.
Updated Intimidate and Perfect Intimidate Talents

New Behaviour: While you have bonus armour, gain 1 stack each second up to a max of 7. Each stack increases total weapon damage by 5% to enemies within 10m.
All stacks are lost when you have no bonus armour.
Perfect Version: Increase max stacks to 8
PvP: 4% weapon damage per stack instead of 5
Design Notes

Shield skills have been unbalanced for quite some time and have grown to be a dominant build tactic in both PvE and PvP. Combined with In-Sync, shields provide an unparalleled, no-downsides DPS boost.

In addition, Intimidate when combined with various methods of gaining short-term bonus armour. This made it deeply unfair in ambush situations in PvP and led to an undesirable PvE meta as well. As such, Intimidate now requires a slow build-up before reaching maximum effectiveness.

Gameplay Adjustments

Added a disorienting effect to players when their shield breaks
Updated Intimidate and Perfect Intimidate so that there is a ramp-up to their effectiveness
Omit shields from the effects of the In-Sync talent
Increased the PvP damage to shield
Repair Traps now heal allies for the proper amount

    Ubisoft has done a good job of supporting the game especially with the pandemic. It's really good to see them not having just moved onto other games after the shutdowns happened.

    Try the countdown to get gears max out dont expect exotics to drop in this mode.
    I like the update so far.

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags! The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    I played around trying a new build with some of the new gear. I was able to make a pretty decent  "pulse build" going. 
     
    SOLO'd  most of missions on Challenging setting, just below Heroic .....
     
    Chaos_21 joined in on some stuff...

    Heroic or Legendary for me. The harder the setting the better. I have a few builds with DPS or Tank mode. This game is fun too bad the Devs havent fixed the wall shooting chest swap etc.
