I have a lot of respect for Grou, and honestly he is an inspiration to me. To be able to be as dumb and idiotic as Grou is and still manage to have a high position with a lot of responsibility in a company is short of a miracle. And on top of that, he is god damn terrible at his job, and he STILL manages to keep it.
You clearly do not understnad how absurd enis are at the moment, along with the fact of how screwed up Eni has been since the beginning of time due to previous set ups and spell choices. Since Launch water eni has always been nerfed purely due to how absurd they were, and still are.
Trans - Stupid spell from the beginning, because of how overpowered it was
UR - Game breaking for multiple mechanics to the point it is restricted for many bosses
Sadist and Mass Mark - absurd heals all the time, no need to be fire because you could always do better with just a few levels in one spell and one passive
Fort - poorly designed because it promoted 'turret playstyle' where all you do is stand in one place and hope you can reach whoever you need to (which usually happened because everyone went after +range)
Now, how I rate how things are now to what they were before?
Trans - severely underpowered now, but still closer to what it should be like compared to old trans, hopefully some more form of balance will be found with it next update or the one after. Will I use it? No
UR - Much better now in balance, usefulness, and power. Will I use it? Yes
Mass Mark - Much more balanced, and plays its roll much better now. Will I use it? Maybe (water eni)
Sadist - Significantly more balanced, but I still want to know whether that HP healed is static or baed off fire%, as static would be very lack luster. Will I use it? Probably, no matter either case.
Fort - Now holds itself as the emergency heal, more damage, but more hindering cost. Encourages more engaging playstyles, but they other healing spells allow for plenty to work with. Damage might need something to make it more worthwhile, or perhaps AoE or something to make it more interesting as a spell due to the wakfu cost. Will I use it? Yes, if I was 12AP, but I am not, and thus will not do so.
All in all, Grou did a pretty darn good job. I'm not saying he didnt make mistakes, Trans and Fear Flask are the perfect examples of mistakes, but all in all the water branch in much more balanced, as are fire and air, albeit air is OP, and probably fire too.
