Everyone is busy enjoying legion and queing exciting arenas, no time to talk

Why is everyone complaining about pruning?
The reason WoW is not a ESPORT is because of the extreme imbalance between different classes and comps,
So what blizzard is doing IS MAKING IT EASIER FOR EVERYONE TO MULTICLASS.
SO YOU DONT GET COUNTERED EVERY FUCKING GAME.
If you feel like your class is dumb and easy, try another class THAT'S THE POINT OF PRUNING.................

I've only been back for 1 month but here's what I see:

 

The bad

  • Dampening is still in the game. This is like putting a bandaid on a tumor. A hastily implemented and ineffective solution. A very easy fix is to add 50% mortal strike back to the game
  • The gear template is a great idea on paper, but in reality it's one of the worse things implemented in the game. Gear was one of the last avenues of customization left in this game and that has been taken away completely. We are at a point where pvp gear doesn't even matter. Removal of pvp pertinent stats such as resilience make the game dull and boring. I don't know about you, I had a lot of fun trying different gems/enchants/gear pieces to figure out what fitted my playstyle best. There is just no feeling of progression
  • Casting has never been easier. All interrupts have been nerfed, range of spells has been increased, many casters have multiple schools, many instant casts. This has allowed for the rise of abominations like boomkin/ele + healer in 2s and so on
  • 2s still remains a shit fest. I do not understand why glad was removed from that bracket in favor of 3s. 
  • The player base appears is becoming more like a sorority. Challengers want to play with glads, rivals act as if they got God by the balls and so on. This arena group finder tool feels like tinder. The average player just doesn't wanna grind anymore and instead prefers to jump around from team to team.
  • The game has become too alt centric instead of focusing on one character and building him. There was a certain feeling of bonding with your character many years ago and that kept players paying for subs.
  • Everyone is so goddamn mobile.

The good

  • The honor talent system is excellent. It still has a lot of room for improvement, but it's on of the best steps blizzard ever took in the right direction. 
  • They tried to make many specs viable, and while they didn't fully succeed, more specs than ever are viable/semi-viable

 

Now as far as warriors go:

  • Single target damage is garbage. This mainly comes from the pvp template with very low mastery, and the fact that they are practically the only class still limited by armor. There was a time I could press mortal strike and see someone's lifebar drop by 25%. Now I consider myself lucky if it's 10%. 
  • Charge root is one of the worst changes ever made to the class. Apart from being buggy as fuck (get nova'd mid charge you stop dead on your tracks - this didn't even happen in vanilla), it took away an integral part of the playstyle of being able to stop a casted cc at someone at the expense of not having a gap closer for a few seconds.
  • Removal of intervene - god knows why
  • Spell reflect being a talent on a 25 sec cd that reflects everything. Rather have it as a 10 sec cd that requires a weapon swap and def stance and only reflects a single spell. Spell reflect should be baseline
  • Heroic leap instead of intercept since Cata
  • Normalized rage. Rage is rage not runic power, not energy
  • Not getting rage from being hit. Like what the fuck
  • Not having an efficient rage burner. Heroic strike was bad but it was a good rage burner.
  • Stormbolt not working half the time and people walking while being stunned
  • Talents being garbage and boring. The only tier which is well designed is the last honor talent one with sharpen blade. That's how talents should be
  • We went from one of the most mobile classes to one of the least mobile. It's a disgrace.

 

On the flip side, everything not pvp in this game is great.

Going to blizzcon looking for a fight is like going to the official wow arena forums for pvp advice :)

If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, bin Laden, and you, I would shoot you twice.

I didn't know that, still can't be bothered playing though. I will just wait until the Vanilla WoW servers come out and grind that assuming they don't touch it and fuck it up.

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.
