Skills

Weak Spot Marking
ICD: 2 Seconds
Level 10 Effect Mark enemies in radius of 2 from target. Marked Units have thier Evasion reduced by 50%. Additionally all attacks against marked units deal an additional 14 Points of Damage. Only one Mark can be active on a target at a time, duration 5 seconds. (Cooldown: 8 seconds)

Analysis

Scouts are an even more extreme version of the Ripper, featuring a massive Evasion and pitiful HP stat, with no other means of Damage reduction. Interestingly, however, Scouts do not appear to be intended as a frontline tank unit, as their Skill provides support to their allies.

Scouts apply a Mark to enemies that reduces Evasion and causes them to take additional Damage when attacked by an ally. Unfortunately, the investment required to get the full value from this Skill is high, as prior to Skill Level 5, the duration and cooldown are poorly synced. Furthermore, the additional Damage scales poorly with ballooning enemy HP values. The Evasion debuff remains valuable against medium-high Evasion enemies, however, the trade-off between Scouts and other units does not favor the Scout.

As a result, Scouts have limited value and can be safely scrapped.

Skill Priority

Weak Spot Marking
ICD: 2 Seconds
Low Priority Additional Skill levels do not benefit Scouts nearly enough to justify spending Data on them. The additional Damage is little more than a tickle in most situations, and the boosted Evasion Debuff is not going to push the Scouts value higher than other units.
