5.1 Soon?

Posted Image


As posted by MMO-Champion it looks like 5.1 may happen really soon! Several quests talks about how 5.1 should be released 2 months after Mists of Pandaria (September 25) which would mean this week.

Official Blizzard Quote:

No, I'm sorry to say but the 5.1 patch isn't going live this week.

But please bear with us for just a while longer and hang on tight to your seat because it will be here before you can say SuperMurlocalifragilisticexpialidocious.
How soon? (fingers crossed) Very, very soon™ ;)

rogues

GC said their intent was to nerf other classes instead of buffing rogues so i doubt there are ever going to be major rogue buffs anytime soon unless they find it impossible to get the nerfs in.

not saying rogues are fine but like its a fair point from GC

So we got warriors getting shit on this patch, demo warlocks basically remaining untouched, shadow priests remaining untouched, frost mage getting HUGE nerfs with 15sec+ cooldown on ring.  Great changes, everyone better have your wands ready because its wizard season bitches

How are Demo Locks untouched?  The aura is now dispellable.  That's a huge huge nerf.

It's not the right way to nerf Demo IMHO, but it is a big nerf.

Don't worry, they will remove pvp power from healing for non-resto specs.

They will destroy feral, boomer, enhance, elemental, and ret specs in an attempt to balance spriests.

My theory as to why they go after warriors, BM hunters, and mages (spellsteal lolz) has to do with blizzard not caring about 3s.  It comes down to a quality of live issue.  What ruins 1vs1 and casual capping in 2s?  It's retarded burst (war, BM hunter, mages) and retarded off heals (hybrids).  

This is my theory why demon locks for the most part get left alone.  Dispellable aura is a very minor nerf and easy to counter for demon lock teams.

Because those doesn't matter in 3s right? What destroys 3s the most is retarded burst, retarded off healing, retarded CD stacking and the amount of defensive cds & all the interrupts.

How exactly is it a minor nerf?  It costs 50 Demonic Fury to recast the aura, and changing in and out of meta is clunky (there's a 10 second cooldown).  Obviously the nerf won't change matchups where the enemy team has no purge, but it will hugely reduce general Warlock power.  Any team with a purge or two will be taking that aura off every single time you cast it, there'll be pretty much no point to even having it up...

I dont get the point with this patch.. why can't they fix the nerfs by hotfixing.. I read somewhere that they were going to get out patcher faster, but 5.1 sounds like a scrub patch?

So this change makes resto shammys practically required to deal with warlock opponents?  How did this change from before?  As you said, comps w/o purge will see not benefit to the change.
