I will suggest now some changes to buff TM, the skills that must be fixed are Malf and Reroute.
First of all, malf, it must go back to support. Right now malf is only worth it for dex builds: If you have any other build, you must spend points in dex to increase malf without getting other benefit than some defense and increasing overload and multy (but those are only strong if you spam dex). When malf increase with support, you can spend some extra points on support, and those are totaly worth it because you are also increasing your chance for first turn, auxiliar damage, and matrix defense. For tech, focus and dex builds spending some points in support can be worth it for what I said before, and it would also have more sence to lose some defense and skill damage for a stronger debuff. Also strength + support could be back to game (read reroute changes before saying it will be op)
First I have to explain something, reroute is better for high health builds. 900 hp will give you a total of 288 energy while 1600 hp will give you up to 512 energy (considering you don't heal). Also it's better if you have less defense, the lower it is the more energy you will get in 1 turn. That's the reason why reroute is so good for Strength-Support builds, and so bad for other builds. So the changes to rereoute must help tanks builds and penalize weaker builds (builds without tech or dex). So now that I have explained that, I will continue with the changes.
-It has to scale with tech.
TM has really good tech/dex skills, but they are way expensive, without a good energy control, these skills are practically useless. Generally; Dex, tech and focus have low HP and high defense, getting the worst utility of reroute. However, they also have something else in common: they have a good ammoun of tech. Reroute increasing with tech would give another help for those builds that require a high ammount of energy.
This won't be definitely a problem for dex, tech or focus build. The main reason of this change is to prevent Strength-Support to abuse reroute and almost have 'infinity' energy. Also would prevent people of spamming tech since it would increase plasma, supercharge and reroute.
