Blizzard just put up the latest "Ask the Dev" session.


The topic for this Ask the Devs is, “PvP changes on the PTR”.
Be sure to stay on topic, as questions that stray from this won't be answered.

Link to the official Blizzard post

How it works:
  • Voting will begin on 09/04/13 and end on 11/04/13.
  • The thread will be open for 48 hours, after which time it will be locked and you’ll no longer be able to post or vote for questions to be sent to the developers.
  • Once the thread has been locked, we’ll tally up the votes and send the top questions off to the World of Warcraft developers.
  • We’ll provide answers directly from the developers during the following week. Watch the blog for their responses!
The Rules:
  • There’s a limit of one question per post.
  • Stay on topic. Questions that are not related to the chosen topic will not be sent to the developers, even if they’re rated highly.
  • Only post questions in the Ask the Devs thread – discussions are not permitted. If you would like to discuss the questions or a related matter, please do so in another thread.
  • A question being highly rated does not guarantee that it will be answered. We will, however, try to get as many questions answered as possible.
  • “Disliking” a post will not count toward its tally. Only “likes” will be counted.
Some Tips:
  • Don’t post or vote for questions that you know we cannot or will not answer. This Q&A is designed to give you more insight into the changes that are happening on the PTR, not to make announcements about future projects, expansions, or release dates. This includes questions not related to the Ask the Devs topic.
  • Make your questions as short and concise as possible so that they’re easy to understand for us and other players.
  • “Like” a post if you’d like to vote for it. Don’t bother “disliking” a post, as this will not influence our decision on which questions are sent to the developers.
  • Vote for any of the questions you’d like to see answered, but keep in mind the above tips.

We should come up with some finite questions for the devs. What should be the topics? Here are a few off the top of my head.

Burst too high?
CC instants and too much per classes?
New arena to cluttered?
CD stacking getting out of control?
PVE trinkets to good?

I would steer clear from class specific questions, they will only cause controversy and flaming.

If you remove void shift from shadowpriests in arena, will you compensate them with a new spell? Since void shift is a level 87 spell, wouldn't it be odd having to play without your MoP ability when everyone else has one?

Would be sweet if we can get them to answer this or something like it ^_^ i don't mind losing void shift but cba lose 87 spell entirely

Same thing happened with mages and time wrap in cata. I don't see what makes the final learned ability so special.

I know there is a Conquest.Pt Catch-up system coming, and while it will help a little, I wonder why don't you make it so that when you earn 27k conquest on one char, u can buy your gear for honor, on all your alts. Maybe it would be unfair(?) somehow, but I think it would really increase activity in arenas since people could much easier gear and go arenas on alts.

If you want to use void shift then play a disc priest.. They will still be able to use it.

Perhaps we could discuss questions before we just post random and possibly repeating questions.

void shift shouldn't exist, they actually wanted to give an "oh shit" ability to disc/holy at first place , now they realised it doesnt fit / its OP for shadow. They need to make a new 87 ability for SPs

If I'm not mistaken, they specifically said not to ask for things but only to discuss changes of 5.3.  So asking for things to change will just get ignored =/

Is there a possibility of increasing the cooldown of ring of peace, to something like 2 or 3 minutes?

Ya I was doing 3s yesterday and its actually insane how the game is going to change without void shift for shadow priests. There's allot of games its not needed in, but 90% of real games against real teams its 100% needed so its definitely a scary change but a needed one.
