Axes have been overrepresented in a variety of content types. While the constant sustain damage and healing reduction is part of the weapon’s identity, the value axe weapons get from their Q abilities was a bit too overwhelming, making it hard for other melee weapon trees to compete. Additionally, the options of counterplay and skill expression for Rending Spin and Raging Blades have been improved with a sweet-spot damage ring to increase the importance of player positioning. The readability of visual effects was also improved for various axe abilities.
Adrenaline Boost was changed to improve its ability to chase down a target offensively, while also reducing its use as an easy disengage. And a standtime was added to Razor Cut to add a bit more commitment to the ability and weaken its easy disengage potential.
Vampiric Strike was reworked to the new ability Blood Bandit to make this weapon more dynamic and allow more skill expression during fights.
Greataxes are now non-interruptible and have more upfront damage versus players, giving them a substantial buff in PvP. At the same time, their PvE damage has been toned down to bring it more in line with other weapons.
