Toss Elixir R: This skillís recharge is increased from 85 seconds to 120 seconds.

Grenade Barrage: This skillís damage has been decreased by 10% in PvP only. It also now works correctly with the Explosives trait Grenadier while underwater.

Elixir B: This skill grants fury, retaliation, and swiftness for 10 seconds base, with might being applied for 30 seconds base.
Smoke Bomb: This skillís radius has been reduced to 180 from 240 when traited. Smoke Bomb is now active for 4 seconds, pulsing every 2. This change also affects the Autodefense Bomb Dispenser trait.
