Very bad changes, they almost missed the mark on every single thing.
- CC immune change to Iceform
- Pure of Heart nerfed
- Mistwalk bug fixed
- Everything else
This hotfix actually buffs assassination laddering, since they are like 20% OP but pure of heart used to keep them in check.
They completely missed why enhance is stupid (stormbringer rng with no icd) - hint: you are still going to die to them instantly sometimes. Also there is a "unintended" "bug" with enhance that allows them to do insane damage, which probably won't be fixed.
Nerfing BM by 10% is probably the most confusing nerf I have ever seen. Hunters are one of the least represented classes in arena. BM and MM are pretty close to each other before the nerf, and now all the hunters will have to respec, but with Artifacts that will literally take weeks.
MW Soothing change was probably not intended to be in the game until 7.1 to counter the pve buff to soothing mist.
This change is just like the first set of changes, all it does is throw the ball completely to a new set of fotm shit. Remember when every game was DH/War?
No nerfs to demo, no nerfs to feral, no nerfs to spriest, no nerfs to rsham, no nerfs to prot pally. Rogues are even more broken than before. WW/DK is still probably hidden OP, and even stronger now.
I don't understand why they can't just get actual imput on changes before they do it. They release the changes they are putting in 7.1 and they are pretty good, but then they hotfix in other changes that should come in 7.1 with no input or thinking what it will actually do to the ladder.
Here is the current spec breakdown inside Gladiator+ range:
Match the nerfs to the spots on the list and you will notice a few disturbing things.
EDIT: I just saw that 7.1 is coming out in a 10 days. Apparently the season won't be ending with 7.1 (?)
This is now pretty confusing, because the mw nerf will get reverted in 10 days, and the nerf to rshams comes then. So, for the next 10 days people will just wait unless they play something that is getting nerfed?
