In Topic: On vanilla PvP

01 May 2016 - 01:01 AM


it has to do with people having this deluded thinking that vanilla was so great because of the amount of skill it took when it had nothing to do with why vanilla was so fun

Vanilla was "artificially" tough because the correct gear wasn't hurled at everyone from the start. If you pulled a 2-3 mobs a few levels higher than you it was an actual threat... People didn't know the correct pathing through zones, you'd run into areas which would destroy you. You'd try shit you know your character wasn't geared for whilst learning to kite/cc etc to make it work because it was an actual challenge and you couldn't be arsed running back in a couple of levels.
Ofc vanilla now looks simple, no-one who has spent years on this game and now has 80+ optimised keybinds/macro's is going to struggle with anything vanilla throws at them yet there's some nostalgia value and it's pretty chill for solo play. The main point though is it's a hell of a lot more entertaining than the joke that is live solo play.

In Topic: When and Why have you started and stopped WoW ?

29 April 2016 - 02:56 AM

Started in Vanilla, a friend got me into it when i went to visit for a couple of days to drink/smoke/check out his new place etc. Sat up on his pc when everyone had crashed and after a couple of nights leveling decided it was worth the purchase.
Sadly the game i was playing previously was going the way WoW is now, slowing down massively, finding less people online to do stuff with etc so i spent more and more time on WoW instead.
Enjoyed bg's at the x6-9 levels, Ended up in a raiding guild in TBC, Wanted to get into pvp properly in wrath so ended up going resto (lack of healers). Gave up raiding in Cata and I've slowly been losing interest for the last couple of years. Not cancelled sub yet but it'll happen as soon as the few remaining people i know finally leave.

In Topic: [Legion] Feral SR vs Incarn

03 April 2016 - 08:58 AM

Doubt SR will be used. There's too much maintenance keeping rip up (needed for armour ignore and chance at ashmane's) and a low duration SR before you can attempt to burst. It might just be better in PvE but in PvP when any peels are going to shit on your next burst attempt it feels bad.

Genuinely enjoy the Soul (got buffed to 30 energy return)/Elune's/Moment build - You always feel like you can burst and if you grab 5 combo points for a rip, energy pool then have either tiger's/omen proc (new omen talent is crazy)/arti ability or elunes available, you'll be chunking them with a few heavy ferocious bites. Feels fast and always useful (+ the extra PS procs are good).

Sad truth is though Incarn just blows everything away. Rake still gets it's stun during it, shred hit hard now so the 20% extra damage and double chance to crit actually kicks the crap out of things during Incarn (spammable 200k+ crits every global) oh and the 50% reduced energy cost from berserk is baked in and now lasts 30 seconds.... They managed to make it stronger than the WoD version.

Bleed builds seem somewhat underwhelming as well compared to maxing FB focused ones.

Other than that, the balance affinity giving 5 yards to every melee ability is fun but that's probably due to having shit MS on the alpha servers and actually being able to hit stuff with it.

In Topic: legion...

Not found anything promising yet, gameplay is worse than WoD (expected, it's alpha). The pruning is depressing and they seem have added more self healing to dps specs whilst reducing the complexity of pretty much everything. Can't outplay people who spam 2 buttons when you have no options yourself.
Also how the fuck do you make cap totem worse? Like it's a hard thing to do but they managed it on top of making spirit link clunky as fuck.

Resigned myself to grinding a resto druid (sit bear form, crushing melee without ever having to shift out) up some pvp levels to test stuff until it dc'd me in arena then threw my character into limbo for all eternity.

All in all would rate 10/10.

[quote]if they nerfed passive wall disc would die ridiculously fast to cleaves because they have nothing to kite with. even through 30% wall i died 100>0 the other day in a fists of fury

implying shaman isn't stupidly simple either when you just need to effectively spam unleashed riptides and dispels to keep someone topped[/quote]

Everything dies ridiculously fast to cleaves... being killed in a single stun is pretty much the norm for the majority of specs, gz on experiencing it once. And yeah disc is by far the simplest healer to play right now but why even get defensive about it? Don't you want the spec to have some complexity back? Do you enjoy playing disc in the current state where it's entire viability is based on the numbers saving grace can pump out?
The specs entirely binary and reliant on instant casts + being extremely tanky due to a passive. Crap like that doesn't help the game in any way when they could have something so much better in it's place.
