Heavy Stance Revisted:
The Heavy Stance sucks! I can get hit from really far away! It's a spam Stance!
Relax - the Raven Dev is working on it in the upcoming patch.
Will it be nerfed? Probably not.
Will the 3 foot or so damage radius be fixed? Yes.
As you can see they are only going to tweak the damage radius. They aren't going to the change the way it fundamentally works . . .

"Perhaps "tweaked heavily" was an overstatement. There were some errors with the radius damage, etc. the attack did that were adjusted. We're not fundamentally changing it...just fixing some things we missed in the original incarnation."
"No problem. The message I wanted to convey was that we're aware of the problem and trying to fix it. I didn't want to make it sound like we were cutting the legs out from under it, so to speak. "
