So what's the growing consensus on bluff and diplomacy now that the update is here? Diplo seems like a requirement to keep your threat low and bluff now acts like a poor man's radiance (which I personally like because with 24 shroud completions I've gotten 3 large scales, so no radiance for me yet). Bluff is still the obvious choice for soloing, but can be quite handy in a group now as well. And both are still useful for various quest options. They share a timer, so is it desirable to have both for use as the situation demands?
I say diplo necessary. Bluff optional, but convenient. What has been everyone else's experience so far?
