I think it's a great idea to re-evaluate the skills and the way they're used in the game, and possibly even bring a couple new skills into the mix. Self-heal is the greatest priority, particularly in the current context of the game. Some people use the booster shot but most (myself included) end up choosing the overdose. I believe they're all useful, but it mostly depends on personal choice.
Other skills are indeed useful but it's punch depends mostly on the existence of a Tactician in the team, such as smart cover. The smart cover and it's variants are all important, especially in a PvP context. The ballistic shield, however, seems to be a rather specific choice and I seldom see anyone using it, except during the time we were leveling up in the story. Personally, I never used it, nor have I ever considered it a choice, actually.
The seeker mine is my favorite skill of the game. I do admit it should be more powerful, especially considering the health-pool of the NPC's at this moment. Even so, it's an amazing skill, especially to push back rushers and keep enemies contained or controlled. The pulse is on the same level as the self-heal, both in terms of importance and relevance. It's another fundamental tool, to have a perception of how many enemies are around you and where they are exactly. The conceal option is great as a stealth measure to avoid detection from rogue scans, and the damage option grants an amazing amount of critical hit chance and damage to our teammates, especially if our skill power is significant. The pulse is another of my favorite skills, an absolute priority in every team.
Anyway, as a prominent skill user myself, I do value all of them, probable except the ballistic shield. On the other hand, I'd definitely like to see the seeker mine damage output increased.
Yeah, it's amazing, no doubt. No other production company does this, not that I remember, anyway. I love the game, and this effort to improve it, is giving me even more reasons to love it. Great job, guys!
