  1. My problem with dark blast is that it’s too similar to Hunar, and when during EQ a bunch of dark blasts are ganging up on Hunar, you can’t tell who is who and can try and attack one of your fellow players.
    Same thing as Rappy costumes really.

    1. Fury Stance, Brave Stance, Average Stance, and Elemental Stance are now all passives which deactivate if you activate the other stance on the skill tree.
