Yeah that was unexpected! Will be interesting to test out for sure! I like that they try to experiment with those 2 classes though, see if they can be improved somehow and find a nice niche.

Actual shock at 3x nerf to SW.

Swift strikes is garbage, so moving it core makes no difference whatsoever. Can see why you did it, to get shadowstep to where pounces are on other classes, but no-one cares.

"the range is reduced to 45ft and the defense buff is reduced to 15%." baffled. Completely baffled. Shadowstep puts you where your target WAS not IS when you land, so it's already a poor gap closer, now it's just much much worse than pounce/leap which can now dismount again, which SW can't do.

"- Broadhead Arrow : This ability require Scout or Skirmish stance." nerf nerf nerf, no more ranged ailment to apply shadow sting when in assault stance.

Why not just remove assault and come out and say "SW is a ranged ONLY class" cause you're getting there slowly.

Just a typo on the SM changes...Guard of Steel is a buff not debuff. Also the black orc morale, which looks like its now been mirrored to, is 30 seconds? Why is the SM one only 20 seconds?

Why moving WL skills between trees? I get you u are making hunter more aoe oriented, but it messes with builds. for aoe build you will not be able to have finisher+pounce, because echoing roar is a joke ability and no one took it. and for ranked you want have heal debuff+pounce together. like, why messing with class that much? WL is already nerfed to a great extent.
