So besides the lack of shitty ass vanish (id prefer 30k hp 65% damage reduction form personally) why am I useful in arenas again?

Oh yeah im not.

Maim on anything less than a minute or something CD is overpowered when you copy the exact mechanic that was meant to make rogues unique.


k

rogue != feral

stop fucking comparing the two

I agree, let's put Maim on a minute CD.

Feral Druids are now enhancement shamans with a bit more survivability, and every once in a while they can stun you for a few seconds. Except without Purge, a ranged snare, Grounding Totem, Bloodlust/Heroism, or Earth Shock. And with a positional attack.

Zero ferals in the top 50 tournament realm teams. Want to count rogues?

Secondary and Rexing were mean to me in a random skirmish the other day. :(

But then we /danced and /hugged so it was alright.

maim has to be a 10 second cd, it's a feral druids only cat form interrupt.


that said i think making it a kidney shot on a 10 sec cd is stupid. at least it will take some skill to use though, at least situational awareness in regards to factoring in DRs

I don't think this is a nerf still. It probably won't share DR with Pounce and the fact that my partner and I can Pounce->Hex->Maim makes me giggle. Wouldn't mind seeing Maim have an increased CD and giving Feral a repeatable interrupt in exchange. Interrupts are the one thing Ferals really need to bust their asses at to get down.

These threads always just descend into people trying to compare classes side by side. Seriously it's a complete waste of time, within a few pages we'll be playing the "I'll give you this if you give me that" game.

Nerf for feral/resto healers for sure. Probably ok if doesn't share DR with pounce, but still a nerf.

After testing it on the PTR without the nerf to the duration, a 5 point maim lasted 3 seconds after a pounce and than 0 seconds when I tried to maim again 10 seconds later. :/

le sigh

Edit: K, and apparently it doesn't interrupt when it's on DR.

Thanks a fucking ton, Blizzard.

Fucking retards.

What, maim shares DR with pounce? It should be on the same DR as cheap shot for sure. Still, feral did need a nerf, but I don't think this was what needed to happen

It's ridiculously broken on the PTR right now. It's basically useless.

I didn't think it was going to be that bad. I was pretty surprised when I tested it. :(

the only thing i'm worried about is a cat interupt.good luck killing any healer due to the fact that shred glyph got nerfed badly ,bad enough that shamans/pallys can just stand there and fol/lhw to stay 100% and tank forever,and if the CD gets nerfed,what will our cat interupt be?

Ignoring the DR issues, if it doesn't interrupt when it's on full DR that's really an awful and unneeded change..

Gee

You can choose to use it as an interrupt with a stun on DR or you can choose to wait till its off DR.

The nerf to maim is right where it should be.

Think of it like you needed combopoints for kick, it wasnt off GCD and after 3 kicks the target would be immune for 15 seconds.


it should still interrupt after it's on DRs

should as in, is supposed to
