Yay, hotfix \o/

Bug #1: If the spore in the Jordas Raid is too fast it won't reset Jordas' timer for the engines.
Bug #2: Djinn's Fatal Attraction does not seem to work as intended.

So! Let's talk about what's been going on and what I would like to see!

Firstly, now that we have Machete's seeing much more love, it would be nice to eventually get another stance for them - something with a better normal combo, instead of the janky - chopping motion we have now. 

Also, now we have the Vacuum mod it would be appropriate to add it to Companions. However, there are multiple ways it could work - I am in favour of an option where the Companion will draw resources to themselves from 12 metres away, and the resources they collect are instantly transferred to you. You do not gain a Vacuum radius around your character. This would distinguish Companions from Sentinels somewhat, while still keeping them useful!

Oh, will it also be possible to scan the Ayatan Sculptures soon enough? It would be glorious to add them to the codex - especially as we are able to scan them whilst in our Orbiters - the reason we are able to use Scanners in the Orbiter is currently unclear.

This has also been talked about by Devs before, but I would still love to be able to individually customise armour parts in the appearance section of the Arsenal - this is minor, but as soon as the War Within comes out it would be a feature I would Love to see.

Thanks DE!

Hey DE, I have a suggestion for Ash’s new bladestorm rework. In Devstream #81, Scott explained that the concept for the new bladestorm allows the player to pick their targets to attack while draining energy for every mark used on a target. In order to mark enemies, the player must hold 4 while making eye contact (assert dominance!) with his victims. The idea for this rework was to allow Ash to keep the fundamental design of bladestorm while giving the player more mobility and interaction instead of a press-4-to-win.

My only suggestion and critique for the current bladestorm rework is that you should make it a toggle instead of making it an ability where you have to press and hold to mark the targets before releasing to attack. In Devstream #81, DE Scott said that the new bladestorm gives the player more interaction with Bladestorm. This is a very good concept that allows players to have more interaction and mobility while they use Bladestorm. However, having to press-and-hold while targeting reduces player mobility because they have to find and target enemies while running around and doing backflips to evade enemy fire, which is extremely difficult when you have one of your fingers pressing 4 down.

During ability toggle, the player is able to target enemies while still giving them the freedom to shoot and use mobility maneuvers. When the toggle is turned off, the player enters bladestorm.

Tera Online, an MMORPG, has a very good example of this concept. The player is able to target enemies during ability toggle and then release to attack enemies. This is crucial is a fast-paced action RPG because it still allows the player to reposition and dodge enemy attacks while still being able to target and attack their enemies:

A few nice fixes but no DotD skins yet. D; I wish we could celebrate it for longer, hurts to watch other games getting all the HW hype, and honestly would be nice this week since there's nothing new, rather than the next 2 which will get us new missions and at least 1 new weapon?
