Patch sound good so far. I do wish absorb were looked at but hey its nothing as bad as the ultra pull bsers so its not much of a problem.
As for the saber changes, the only other wish I would have on my list is to replace the medium special in mp with Tavions medium special from sp. Its so much better looking, and even better is that it has timing where you wont be pulled out of the animation into the regular jump animation if a person moves out of the way. But its a small thing anyways, overall this patch should be well worth the wait.
