How did your first day of the new season go?  What comps is everyone trying out?

I saw a ton of variety on the ladder today.  I played 1 game of feral/spriest/hpal and felt like I was invincible, then I played PHDk later tonight and it was very mediocre.  The damage was there but it felt like the first CC that connected with me, one of my team mates would drop to 10% if I didn't trinket or bubble.

I'm wearing a lot of the new honor gear and it's a huge step up from all the blues I used to have.  You can definitely tell a difference in health pools between people with 2/2 malevolent and honor gear, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be.  I still think T2 2/2 weapons from last season are a problem though.

I'd like to try playing some ret tomorrow.  Saw a few ret teams doing pretty well with hunters, rogues, and feral druids.  Wind walker monks are definitely way better now with their new defensive cooldowns.

The Affliction lock teams that I played still had really strong spread damage, but then again I really suck at playing against Affliction warlocks as a Paladin.

Mage Frost Bomb seems to be correctly reduced in PvP, but Nether Tempest feels like it's getting the full 40% boost even in arena.  Nether Tempest + any other spread damage class is absolutely unreal damage.

gear advantage from 2/2 malevolent gear/weap is just retard they need to fix it there is no way to play the game with honor gear atm.
an full honor mage  has 354kHP and 18k spell power(with arcane brillance) and an full 2/2 with t2 2/2 has 392kHP and 22k spell power(with arcane brillance) its retarded.
only after like 2 and half months the gear will be close to equal with 3.2kcap.

Have to use a macro with
/stopcasting
/cast Silence

since patch 5.2, otherwise it just stay here saying "Spell is not ready yet" and there's no way I can silence 90% of the time

From what movie?


And as for the season.
*Shadowpriests are still too good at everything, too much burst, too much utility, too much healing.
*Demonic Gateway shouldn't be usable in arena
*Ring of Peace
*That channeled monk stun dumb
*Hunter damage needs to be toned down
*Nether tempest is a retarded and mindless play style that does way too much damage now
*Rogues
-Subterfuge is dumb
-Way too much control, being able to cheap->cheap->garrote->garrote->paralytic is absurd, cheap/garrote should have short cd's.
-Mind numbing should be removed
-Shurikan toss does too much damage
*Swifty macro's are still way too prevalent, shouldn't be able to use every major offensive cd together, this goes for basically every class.
*Deathknights-30 second asphyxiate is ridiculous.
*KFC is still real, damage/cc was untouched basically, warriors can die now though.

edit: Boomkin are fucking retarded, 130k instant crits, dots ticking for 30k, and vortex->beam is dumb as shit.
edit again: rets are retarded. their one shot is last season warrior stupid.
But on the positive side, noticing a lot more variety, a lot of different comps feel viable, which is a good thing. And the four main healers feel really close to each other in terms of balance. They still obviously have their strengths/weaknesses, but I dont think any one of them is far above or below the others. Mistweavers though I have no idea.

What is wrong with people using asphyxiate. If you had to choose between a 30 sek stun OR a 1min silence/rooting chains of ice or more mobility, why the fuck would you even bother taking that piece of shit that drs with every stun ( GNAW) in the game.

Other than that, I dont know why there is so a dk hype on these forums, some people even compare dk to last season warrior. damage got buffed, sure, but so got everyone elses. I think every class is in a good spot for this season, except Warlock and maybe warrior.

When i said full retard I meant strong, not a bad choice on the DK's part. Unholy deathknights last season put out more pressure 1v1 than anything, the only reason they weren't really good was because KFC's raped them. With 30 second asphyxiate, double grip, tons of damage/necros, and all the cc break cd's theyre pretty damn scary right now.

When I said "what is wrong with ppl using asphyxiate" i meant they cripple themselves, honestly.
