  • Short Fuse: This trait has been reworked, moved to Adept, and its cooldown reduction had been added to the following skills.
    • Fire Bomb: Reduced recharge from 10 seconds to 8 seconds.
    • Concussion Bomb: Reduced recharge from 20 seconds to 16 seconds.
    • Smoke Bomb: Reduced recharge from 25 seconds to 20 seconds.
    • Glue Bomb: Reduced recharge from 25 seconds to 20 seconds. Fixed an issue that caused the visuals for this skill to appear larger than the effect radius.
    • Big Ol' Bomb: Reduced recharge from 25 seconds to 20 seconds.
  • This trait no longer reduces the fuse time or recharge of bomb skills. Hitting a foe with an explosion skill grants 4 seconds of fury (3 seconds internal cooldown).
