PvP CC Feedback

First things first, I want to make sure you’re aware that the information below reflects both short and long-term design considerations on our end. This isn’t all on the table for patch 5.2 for a number of reasons.



To make this clear right off the bat: This shift of instant casts back to cast times is not just targeted at crowd control. We also wish to start moving some heals back to having a cast time rather than being instant. That said, we’re not necessarily planning on overhauling many of the spells and abilities that have been instant for a long time now, such as Hand of Justice. We’re looking at some of the big outliers that we see brought up a lot, which are instant-cast, area-of-effect abilities like Blinding Light, or Presence of Mind in combination with Ring of Frost.



We think that there are too many of these AoE CC spells at this time, especially instant AoE CC, which can create some frustrating gameplay experiences. Some other particular crowd-control effects that are on our radar are abilities like Blood Fear, which we’re considering redesigning altogether, and Predatory Swiftness in combination with Cyclone, which feels virtually impossible to counter.



While we are talking about cc what about having some more spells share DR with each other. A pala can repentance/blinding light/ hammer. No Dr at all. Why is it that fear and blind share a DR and polly/fear and cycone dont? and many more examples like this.


We’re looking at diminishing returns for CC right now as a possible way to help with CC in PvP combat, but it’s the type of gameplay overhaul that can be risky to implement in the middle of an expansion cycle if the change is too drastic. We are, however, taking a look right now at the DRs within particular classes, as well as special snowflakes like Cyclone. Either way, the design discussion will undoubtedly continue! (



Could it be true, blizzard possibly changing drs and also nerfing instant cast aoe cc? revamping blood fear??? Instant clone which has been broken forever?

Thoughts anyone?

It is worrisome that they mention hoj and leave out poly/fear. I guess they meant to imply all CCs with that line, though. If they do anything with Hpals, they need to make repentance become a ret talent, not nerf hoj or blinding light and give hpals a undispellable sac talent in place of rep.

Read it again, they are saying they don't wanna change HoJ.

they should make it so any huge insta cc / long cds like NS cyclone or blinding flash, pom poly, bloodfear should either be reduced in duration by 2 or act like it's dr'd 1nce (but maybe not actually so can do ns 3 sec clone, 3 sec clone) or make it so after the said insta cc wears off, next cc that is put onto you within 4 seconds ((what i thought balanced) or any other number even 2 or 3 or 6 idc) it's duration is reduced by 2 or behaves like it's dr'd an additional time (but not actually)
