spirit link was undeniably broken and the duration change is a good one. The mana cost is a stupid change and basically makes it unplayable.

 

What I don't understand is how they see the spirit link problem and not the healing touch problem. I'm hoping someone from blizzard reads this and actually understands that something need to be done about druids to balance out the change to spirit link or they are going to rein gods for a long time to come.

 

Hoping to see druid nerfs this Wednesday but it probably wont happen.

Spiritlink was one of the worst things to happen to wow arena, but yes I agree - Healing Touch and RMD dominance need to go next.

Honestly id be fine with them removing spirit link. I was doing fine without it. Just need to balance out other healers to make it acceptable.

How does that justify spiritlink shaman being a good design? It was awful for the game, just like healing touch

i didnt say it justified it - the reason link was nerfed was because rogue mage lost to it in a tournament and every rogue mage player cried about it; when they had no reason to.

after playing a few games I can't understand how the justify making it cost 80k mana per cast and giving it 20 second duration. ITS ONE OR THE OTHER DON'T JUST DESTROY THE CLASS BECAUSE YOU'RE TOO STUPID TO SEE THAT.

 

Also if you're nerfing spirit link give earthshield 20% dmg reduction again or something. This is actually retarded rofl...

 

Edit: "if you're OVERNERFING spirit link"

 

 

Revert the mana cost and keep it 20 seconds and good teams will be able to cc off the link and win the game. It's not like rmd doesnt have the cc for that.

Hopefully the fact that they stealth nerfed it means some elements of it can be reverted because they didn't publicly announced they were doing it. If not RIP.

None of the comps i played with dk or dh ever had an issue with link shamans, be it Double meele or caster meele. Not sure how many classes outside of rog/mage have trouble vs link. the mechanic of it is pretty dumb, but so are loads of things atm.

its not really a conspiracy theory anymore, its quite obvious that the people who balance this game like the idea of rogue / mage / x working together every season, for example look at the talent that gives combat rogues AR when someone gets sheeped. Not to mention the fact it is the only comp in this entire game immune to nerfs for 10 years.

I thought I'd never admit Jaime would be right but Assassination/Fire Mage/X is so disgustingly strong right now. It's easily the best comp by a huge margin. The worst thing is that it's not even Rogue/Mage anymore. RMD is currently the same exact comp as WW/DK. The only comp that resembles classic RMD is Thugcleave and WW/Arcane Mage. RMD is corrupt.

Imo - at least when it comes to PvP - Mages, Rogues and Locks were always Blizzard's favor-children. Always making a permanent staying spot of Tier 1 and God Tier comps, and as Jaime put it spot-on, "being immune to nerfs".

And if they have the time to nerf Spirit Link they should fix other issues first, like blink-Poly. It's predictable (you see a Mage casting Poly and you know what is to come) yet sometimes you really can't do anything else, and are forced to get Polyed across the room through lining the Mage in the first place. LUL

Because the random name generator might pump out Lortfanden, which sounds like a pretty generic fantasy Warrior name in English, until you realize it means "Shit Fuck" in Danish.
