I don't understand the range nerf.  So magically my throwing arm is going to get weaker in a week?

Thats nothing here is the big nerf:

* Charge Booster: Redesigned to an active ability rather than a passive. When activated, the damage of your Charges is increased by 50% when detonated. This ability does not trigger global cooldown and is on a 1.5 minute cooldown.

That is going to bring dps way down, and will be able to do good damage every 1.5 minutes :(

Its time to reroll

Saboteurs
Firstly we’re going to roll-back the changes to Charge range; they’ll be back to the same levels as they are on Live at the moment. Regarding damage, put simply some Saboteurs specs are doing far too much damage in both PVP and PVE across multiple level ranges including 50. In part this was due to an armor penetration bug however a significant portion of it is also due to Charge Booster. We’re still not entirely happy with Charge Booster as is it exists on the Test shard and we’ll be updating it further to reward players who invest deeper into the Saboteur tree. We’re not trying to force people to have to spend 51 points in Saboteur we’re just trying to make it a more attractive option than what it currently is.

I can understand the damage reductions... 'cause come on... you know you're OP... it was the range reduction that confused me.

We aren't OP.  After they fix the armor pen bug, we will be just fine. :P

Your arm getting weaker happens with age; so in a week your rogue Sab becomes 50........... years old!   :P ;D
