Hey guys, I will have the opportunity to interview Holinka & Ghostcrawler   about the upcoming PvP changes and I thought of reaching out to you guys and see what kind of questions you would like answered!
I won't go into any specific class balance changes, because in my opinion that is an endless loop of discussions, but anything else in regards to 5.4 and its overall changes I'd be happy to bring it up.

It will most likely be livestreamed either on my channel:

Date: 22nd of August 3:30 pm PST

http://www.twitch.tv/hotted89 or http://www.twitch.tv/swifty

and the VOD will be available on my YouTube channel:

Looking forward in checking out your questions :)

Ask them if they will ever go back to the once aimed for idea of having people pvp in a wounded state please.  Neither fully topped off in one global or dead in one global.  Even after battle fatigue was put in I still feel like heals are way too bursty because of damage being too bursty.

Also, can you please ask them if they plan to do any tuning to hybrid healing this patch?  It is just as, if not more out of control than 5.0 hybrid healing.

Please and thank you.

Do they really want to reduce the dmg, burst and CCs or it is just one of their "resilience will fix it" saying?

Ask if they will ever go back to the wrath balance method where you got 1 pvp spec per class and 1 pve, like frost for mages was pvp and fire / arcane was pve

And if they're happy with healer balance in 5.4

Mage Specific:

are they going to make a buff / something below our character frames to keep track of icicles?

I never know how many icicles i have since i play with a pretty zoomed-out screen. this is also one of those things you'd be checking when you're CCed, but the ingame blizzard loss of control stuff makes you unable to see your character, and even the flags on top of your character in arenas make it harder to see them.

I'd prefer if it's something under your character like shadow priests orbs, in addition to them being on top of your head, because then it won't be something the enemy team is always aware of.

edit: spelling mistake.

Ask why they keep removing things and readding it as glyphs.


i.e. Sanguinary veins working with hemorraghe (see Cataclysm) or something more recent, removal of the "no cooldown redirect" which is now being added again as a glyph.

You want questions?

1) Have you ever considered changing CC chains to make them exclusive for each class type? Example: every healer's CC DRs with each other, every melee CC DRs with other melee CC, every caster CC DRs with other casters?

2) Similar question regarding CC, have you considered DRing Cyclone with Fear/Polymorph to tone down certain CC chains like MLD? If not, why?

3) Damage is high on a lot of classes, but elemental shamans/fire mages/destro locks are exhibiting a lot of one-shots and they are usually extremely hard to stop from happening, can we see that toned down?

4) Divine Shield doesn't work through Cyclone, why? Hand of Purity, Desecrated Ground, BM, etc all work through Cyclone

5) Right now holy paladins suffer from crazy CC chains.. Unbreakable Spirit is a good change but it's a change in the wrong direction. Divine Shield on a 2.5 minute just doesn't feel right. Any chance to possibly reverting that change and giving paladins a Will of the Forsaken/Nimble Brew?

6) WW Monks are doing over the top damage on the PTR but nobody seems to notice, is this something you are looking at?

7) Warlock CC next patch will consist howl of terror, shadowfury, blood horror. Can we tone that down?

8) With teams disappearing next patch, is this years 3v3 tournament the last of its kind?

fuck invite me to that skype interview ive got a million quesstions

Ask him if he intends on Warlocks being able to keep somebody feared on the enemy team indefinitely and if they actually think blood fear is even remotely balanced and isn't infuriating to a melee.

Ask him if he actually plays a melee, because it seems to me casters can generally do more of everything (cc, damage, healing) from 40 yards away.

Ask him why he they are nerfing moonkins because god knows they are tearing up the ladder right now right?

Ask him why every time a class spec is played with a bm hunter extensively it gets the nerf bat (warriors, rogues, now enhance and feral) and hunters just get a few things shifted around while staying overall overpowered.

rank 1 titles will be given to the top 0.1% players of the ladder in s14, ask him if gladiator will to the top 0.1% - 0.6%, so there's 0.5% total gladiators just like the other seasons.

Pretty sure, prot, holy and ret were viable in WOTLK

That is a very valid question, the hell with that? Since Wotlk this was the pattern. If a certain hunter+x combo is strong, nerf the x to the ground

ask him if they plan to do something about the warrior.

just check at braindance last posts and doing this would prolly fix the class.

My question is : are they going to make the warrior competitive against hunters / elemental / enhance / ret / DK ?

Agree prot shouldnt be there, but he meant on "non-support" classes. You dont really want to force shaman or priest to only play 1 spec

Ask him about the "World PvP" item that would dismount player on flying mount. They mentioned it at Blizzcon still not ingame.
If it's still coming or not.


And his toughts on disable racials in arena if we would see that in the future?

This? Not sure if you meant something else entirely.
