Instead of WW starting at -50% Enhanced Damage and gaining 8% ED per level, it now starts at 30% ED and gains 5% ED per level. It also starts with 50% Attack Rating now.

Cool change to benefit early investment into the skill, at level 25+ it deals less damage than it used to but I think it’s fine since you generally don’t reach a WW level higher than 30 or so anyways.
