its really fucking dumb tbh, and the other sad thing is, scaling as a deathknight is terrible as fuck
if you have 2k AP more then another dk, you cant even tell the difference in damage
just to add in too, deathknights are one of the classes that get fucked over by resilience the most too, oh hi patch 3.3 lets give everyone 50 more resiliece through pvp sets, or elemental shamans 150 through double setbonus stacks.
how are we even going to think about dropping a elemental shaman when hes got like 1.3k resiliece+, mail armor and a shield, let alone all the plate which we 700+700 ss hit on
oh, and we cant get armor pen because we have to gem spell pen, n1
I always thought something as simple as a passive ability granting us passive spellpen would do a LOT. People often try to think too fully into class mechanics while forgetting about the basic stuff, to get a comparison I am just amazed by the stats warriors manage to get. Some of them are close to capping ArP passively, yet still have more or equal ap, simply because they have a talent in tier 1 which gives the same ap as the tier 2 blood
talent, while it costs them 3 talents against 5 for us, and we have to gem spellpen. The 95 spellpen we get from gems are equal to 76 str which isn't negligible at all. I have yet to see a DK with the kind of stats warrior gets.
