So...they removed class differentiation between sage and demon tigers....? That makes no sense.
They made Sage Barbs OP in tiger form ^^ The skill updates that came with the forms are passive, meaning you don't activate them with skills they are just on when you change into tiger. The Demon 5% reduce chance to receive a critical hit is not absolute however. Its only active for about 6 seconds after transformation. Sage now no longer have a damage output reduction in tiger form.
demon skills in tiger still better for killing tho.
But them Sage Tigers are beasts in tanking
