Well, to be honest the change was definitely needed if you ask me. Been playing around with it the last few days since the update and while Ranged WS distance is still within AoE of anything that can kill you it's a lot better than before. Now whenever I want/need to WS I only need to take 2~3 steps forward instead of taking 5~6. As someone who uses RNG as his VW job and jumps in on WoE in the mornings during JP primetime when nothing is going on my chances of dieing have been cut down by a fair amount do to just attempting to run back out of distance due to a badly timed TP move.
I know the most groundbreaking thing that they could do would be to reduce the penalty on double weakness
While this would be nice, I'd still rather have reduced enmity on ranged attacks personally. (No I don't have Annihilator)
