The thing that gets me so far since I've only done priest as of this post is how so loaded some of the skills are. I mean, the Mana charge had lost its usefulness in the last few patches, but now it gives Mana, health, power, and crit power on a relatively low cooldown. I'm not complaining as a priest, but that's a ton of functionality all loaded in a simple skill

I have mixed feelings on it. For some reason I'd hoped that after putting extra emphasis on onslaught, they'd fix the issue where lancers desync when using it. But they didn't. So that sucks if your ping's over 60 and fluctuates a bit. The core skills themselves are wonderful, don't get me wrong; this just seems like something that should have been fixed ages ago, and now would have been the critical moment to do it. That critique aside, lancer's awakening is about as close as you can get to doing a class awakening correctly. The overall class didn't change too much, and the things that were added go along with the theme of a protective shield-wearing class. I love it. I just wish parts of it weren't so busted.
Now, regarding the other awakenings. I have a zerk, a mystic, and a priest, so I'll be talking a bit about those. If you like them, that's great! Good for you, I'm legit happy for ya. But as someone who made healer alts specifically for when I was tired of the minmaxing and the competitive nature of DPSing, I can't say I'm excited about changes that incentivize even more DPSing on my healer. And as someone who made a zerk because I liked the slower charge up playstyle, I can't say I was hyped for the fast paced changes that came with awakening; if I'd wanted that, I would've made a warrior or something. Those, in my opinion, are examples of how *not* to "awaken" a class, because you're pulling a complete 180 on the job's initial play-style and screwing the people who were happy as it was. Again, that's not to dump all over people who like these changes, I'm happy for y'all and I'm just resigning myself to playing only my lancer at this point, which sucks because everyone and their mum is bandwagoning the class hard right now.
Anyway haha happy awakening! o/
