I feel removing class-staple abilities was absolutely awful.


However, nearly every single ability that has been added to the game since cata was gamebreaking is some form or another and changed the meta significantly. RoF in cata or symbiosis in MoP for example.

Even small things such as the interrupts and magic dispells they added in cata have drasticly changed the way the game has played.

Even with 10 second CC in Wrath we didn't really bitch about it then. Why all of a sudden did they reduce the duration? It made very little sense when we didn't have an issue to begin with. This is an example of them trying to solve a problem that didn't exist, only throwing off the balance even further while hurting class identity in the process.


On a related note, where the fuck is my overpower?

I have no opinion because my class already only had 3 buttons to press since like cata (and the "pruning" didn't really change anything).

i feel like warriors now compared to say wotlk probably hate their lives though.

Would be okay with it if it was evenly pruned. For instance I lost a core part of my cc; scatter shot. Mages have two schools of cc. Seems imbalanced, ladder confirms.

Blizzard did an overwhelmingly shitty job at pruning abilities off classes. I was certain they'd remove some of the abilities added over the years, not standard rotational abilities that make your class not only have to press 2 fucking buttons to be successful rofl

a bit too much,to the point where many classes just rely on their 1 minute or 30s cds to be able to do anything in the game most of the time makes the gameplay very dull.
-just bring back constant dmg.

It was horribly done and this is why.

Blizzard has no idea what they are doing, a lot of people asked for "ability pruning" in general without making a clear specific change list for them. At this point Blizzard realizes "Ok we have to prune abilities" but they are left to their own devices. So what do they do? They (the current devs) obviously don't want to remove abilities they added in Cata and MoP cause that would feel like they are destroying their own work. So instead they remove all these class iconic abilities that were added 10-7 years ago by older devs that no longer work for Blizzard.

The whole ability pruning was just an ego thing and what we are left with are the shells of classes that can no longer stand in the shadows of their former selfs.

S8 ele LSD glad S9 resto shamn glad Thunka

Druid utility is superior to shamans utility already

all the other healers should be buffed up to the point of having a way of not having to outplay 2 dps to survive

Thunka 2.0

disc is way way better than druid.

What was the point of removing Curses, Fel Flame, Renew from Disc/Shadow, Spinning Fire Blossom, stuff like that ?

I don't even.

Hate my life is really a big understatement..
The part that makes me most sick though, is having to apply rend for no reason except for dmg. Reminds me everyday of how great "Taste for Blood" was.....
