Torquemadra will generally be the one implementing the changes, as he has the most complete knowledge of the ability mechanics and what is possible to change at this time. Developers will be involved as needed to provide underlying mechanics to any changes that require them.
As a reminder for players wishing to pursue balance threads, these forums are strictly moderated. Stay on topic, present evidence, and avoid any personal attacks or biases. Posts must be made in competent English. As a refresher on what is expected of new Proposals in the balance forums, the following is still in full effect.

This forum is for class/archetype/combat proposals ONLY.
The rules within this post must be read before posting within this subforum. In particular, not following the prescribed format will now result in an immediate decline due to failure to read the rules. This topic will serve as an example of one that follows the formatting rules.
A note about Experimental Mode:
- When making a proposal based on a class that has an experimental mode active on the server, you must accomodate for changes within that experimental mode as if they were an actual part of the class.
Topics formatted appropriately and supplying evidence for a particular viewpoint should be moved to Discussion regardless of the moderators' personal opinion about the topic. Their role is only to ensure that the likes "omfg sorc op pls nerf" don't make it to a discussion. If rejecting a topic, a post should be made.
Moderators are entitled to delay moving a topic if doing so would overwhelm the Discussions forum and their capacity to moderate it. When this happens, they should advise of it.
Both our ability to make changes and the scope of issues we're willing to address are restricted at this time, as the path we have set out within the balance forum's rules is still the one that we intend to follow. If I am unwilling to act on something because we don't have enough power over the client or because it would conflict too much with the spirit under which that path was proposed, I will tell you why that is.
