Support Skill issues

Did anyone else notice the support skills for the Knight are pretty underwhelming? They don't seem to have enough of an affect to make it worth having in a party. Also the Bulwark (knights will) ability says it lasts for 3 seconds but only stayed on the field for less than 1 second it seemed.

What did you guys think?

    I'm wondering in what sense 6,4% constant damage buff - as well as 12% every 18 seconds - is underwhelming? Knight is specifically wanted in parties due to these buffs.
    Bulwark will also stay on the ground for the whole duration, unless you cancel it yourself (by moving or using a skill, most inputs will cancel the skill).

    Exactly. These are unique party wide damage increases that stack with other damage increases. Assuming you are positioning yourself correctly and hitting the majority/all of your group with Warhorn is a very good group DPS increase combined with Shield Throw. Bulwark and Defender of the Faith does require a wee bit of coordination from your group and awareness of what attacks the boss is doing on your end to really see shine. Though I do think it could use a bit of a range increase.
