You seem very inexperienced. I agree that DP needs some sort of buff with a drop off at high DP builds but I don't die in 3-4 seconds when I am PA'd. I play ranger so even a squishy class like me would only die once PA ends. And yes, the first CC will always win a fight. That's how it always has been. Get gud. Also, Shai will actually make matches last longer instead of instant death. They literally have a shield bubble. They are a big counter to classes like an archer who have been an annoying pest in the battlefield so this class seems like their solution to countering against them amongst other ranged classes.
