In Topic: Crystal+Ice nova 1 shot

25 November 2014 - 07:31 PM

Since beta crystal has been treated as a PVE target.

It's very easy to test, glyph icy veins, throw some lances into the crystal, see if ANY of them proc double multistrikes.

As it's a PVE target you're getting 200% crits into the thing, you're also getting double multistrikes.
With the icy glyph + multistrike stacking you're looking at like 60-80% (weapon procs) multistrike and this is VASTLY skewing the burst you "should" be able to put out.

100k crits with double 30k multistrikes crits (thats just from the crystal, you'll take an extra 20k from being the "offtarget" which again could multi once and/or crit) are possible from a SINGLE ice nova.

Once it's fixed in PvP it'll look slightly less stupid and people will have time to react. They still need to stop ice nova "freezing" you though, whoever added that effect to a burst ability needs to be slapped.

In Topic: So shamans are the weakest healers atm?

There's nothing wrong with shamans atm.
If anything we're less squishy than we were last season because "time to live" outside of bugged shit (crystal still being a pve target) is slightly better right now than s15. Our set bonuses help a lot (dispelling yourself for the extra healing + damage reduction is very effective) and we still bring a lot to teams with purge/shear/hex/freedom/grounding etc. We're really not that squishy unless your letting people open on you with everything and aren't getting any external help.

As for comps, unless prot wars get nerfed then ATC (vigilance and sac are immense at letting r shams save cooldowns) is going to be top tier/ WPS is also fantastic. At some point the community will cotton onto the fact the shadow has both VERY good burst (all instants) as well as one of the strongest/easiest to apply cc chains in the game right now (Silence->Fear->horror etc).

Also practically NO healer survives the train fest for long right now, double melee on anything with purge spam puts ANY healer in severe trouble.

If they wanted to change anything then again, make projection baseline.

Bump because you didn't even sticky it :mad: .

In Topic: Cloudburst totem.

Cloudburst seems awful imo. I don't know about you guys, but I can spam heals for however long it is down without anyone even killing it and when it ends it only heals me for around 3k.

It's splitting healing between everyone who is in range and injured.

My totem is popping for a really low amount since over healing isn't so much of a big deal in pvp.

It's not overhealing anymore, it's just 20% of healing done by the shaman.


Honestly, I prefer spending a global on everything else but Cloudburst.

In arena you'll have spare globals, it's not the go to button if someone is in trouble but there are times when there's nothing else to use so storing 20% of your healing over the next 15 seconds is a nice bonus.
