Posted Zeiyo on 28 November 2012 - 04:23 PM

so...

they buffed damage/burst (pvp power and upgrade able items)

they nerfed healing

they left the one shot op war/mage/demo specs alone

then they nerf some random shit like ele to the ground for no reason (totem nerf, NS nerf, pvp hybrid nerf)

people are doing even bigger one shots now. TfB didnt even get nerfed? mage/demo one shots only buffed from the pvp power/new upgrades also?

#3811309 The 5 Stages of 5.1

Posted Korzul on 27 November 2012 - 12:29 AM

Here's some help for tomorrow/Wednesday for all my fellow shamans.

1. Denial and Isolation
The first reaction to learning of a terminal nerf is to deny the reality of the situation. It is a normal reaction to rationalize overwhelming emotions. It is a defense mechanism that buffers the immediate shock. We block out the words and hide from the facts. This is a temporary response that carries us through the first few losses.

2. Anger
As the masking effects of denial and isolation begin to wear, reality and its pain re-emerge. We are not ready. The intense emotion is deflected from our vulnerable core, redirected and expressed instead as anger. The anger may be aimed at inanimate objects, opponents or team mates for NOT PEELING QUICK ENOUGH.

3. Bargaining
The normal reaction to feelings of helplessness and vulnerability is often a need to regain control–
  • Maybe if i gem full resilience...
  • Surely i can find a good shadow priest to play with.. hell maybe even a ret too!
  • Damn it i'm good enough to ground EVERY DEEP!
  • If we pop everything instantly we still have a chance!
4. Depression
Two types of depression are associated with nerfs. The first one is a reaction to practical implications relating to the loss. We worry about our team mates and rating. We worry that, in our nerfed state, we have less tools to help those that depend on us.
The second type of depression is more subtle and, in a sense, perhaps more private. It is our quiet preparation to separate from our friends and bid them farewell, for they can still play strong comps and yet we can not be with them :<

5. Acceptance
Reaching this stage of mourning is a gift not afforded to everyone. Nerfs may be sudden and unexpected or we may never understand the reasoning or the logic, for there may very well be none.
It is not necessarily a mark of bravery to resist the inevitable and to deny ourselves the opportunity to re-roll or quit. This phase is marked by withdrawal and calm and ultimately, vodka.


This post may have been subjected to some over dramatization.


#3809480 What healer to go with in 5.1 with Resto Shamans nerfed?

does not make them bad

Makes them terrible. Please before you start posting this crap go and make a toon on the ptr with a few friends.
Make ANY semi-decent comp and preferably get the best resto shaman you know on the opposition team.

Now all game your goal is to tunnel that shaman, you can ofc peel their cooldowns as usual but once they're gone, get right back onto that tunnel target.
Follow every decent stun you have with a silence. Just for the lols follow that silence with more silences or stuns if you have them.

Then come back and tell me how long they lasted and how amazingly skillful you had to play to earn that victory.

sually people will move a lot even when slowed (just casting instants) and the moment they stop moving is when they are going to cast. My warrior friend pummeld about 90% of every single fel dom cast using this method.
even with 10-20ms people still move and cast at the same time due to some odd server delay.
this method never worked for me.
