We need to talk about effect of nodes

Let’s discuss whether it would be better to change some of the nodes from their function as useless passive tree filler to functional still active spells.

For example, the Blade shield node in Rogue has an extra useless node that gives a longer shield effectiveness time when used and has to be constantly activated.

Why on earth aren’t these spells always active and instead the passive tree offers another more attractive node ?

Are you in favor of such a change ?
