* Introducing an assortment of new attachments.
* Adding an ability that restores an automaton's HP."
One direction that that could be shooting for is turning Valoredge into a true "tank" puppet. Assuming they've realized that Sharpshot can handle the physical DD role, they could be trying to add more tools to let us use Valoredge as an actual tank.
They've finally let Valor use the shield for shield blocking, so that's one step towards it. A second healing ability would compliment it as well, I'm thinking a "Repair" type ability with no regen, but on a shorter timer, hopefully not using a consumable, but either way... They could also make attachments that further the idea as well, maybe another enmity attachment, stuff in that vein... and more Stout Servant would be nice too...
There's also evidence that they're trying to match the puppet frames to their PC-job counterparts further and further. We recently got a "Barrage" attachment, and Cure Potency as well, so something like s "Elemental Celerity" attachment for Spiritreaver isn't out of the question. I'd also like to see a Mana Booster 2, and a new Drum Magazine (without the accuracy down, of course.)
And let's not forget the most important attachment prospect of all... Tactical Processor 2. We need even faster "decision-making time."
