#4369727 Is Holinka the worst thing that happenned to WoW PvP ?

I think your memory isn't quite right. PvP and realms died mid cata and that was thanks to gc.


#4368770 Burst of Speed nerfed

Shape shifting every root just has no place in this game. Comparing it with rogue burst of speed is dumb, but it still doesn't change the fact that no class should be 'immune' to certain form of crowd control(but,but, it has been like that forever, iconic feral ability,right?-Honestly, who cares). Like, try fearing warrior as a priest. All these secondary trinkets should be made in a way so that you actually have to react in order to get to use them, not the other way around:" I have fucked up because I got cced, nvm, ill just use one of my trinkets because I am a dk" is a good example. If this game is ever to be at least close to being good, all of those things need to be changed.
Also, please remove frozen ammo and faerie fire spam.
I'm ok with that as long as they give enhance shamans vanish.


#4329219 Nerfing Combat won't make Assassination/Sub viable

Only people calling combat easy are elitist sub rogues who managed to get some ratings with rmd last season. Every spec / class is equally easy to play - only complicated specs to ever exist in this game were affliction lock from tbc to end of wotlk. Feral was also among the skillspecs. Unholy dk and hunter in general were the most difficult specs to play until cataclysm came out.
Well the other classes and specs need to think when they use abilities. Combat rogues don't, you don't think when you press burst of speed and you don't think when you use killing spree, the game tells you to use it when red buff appears around your character.

If you want to say that sub is so easy that your grandmother could play it and it doesn't matter, combat is even easier than that and can be played by an orangutan. That's still a difference, I presume.


#4329045 Dampening

Posted Abidalzim on 02 January 2015 - 06:23 PM

Posting for a friend:

Why are people talking about dampening should be changed to this, or that. It shouldn't be. It shouldn't even be in the game. Are you getting so brainwashed by Blizzard that you see nothing wrong with this? How about we fix the fcking game so matches are balanced instead of adding in some retarded clunky bandaid fix that will force end the game one way or the other before the timer runs out? We've played almost a decade without dampening.

Games between two teams that can't initially score a kill on eachother shouldn't be force ended in favor of one of the teams by making damage unhealable (wether that is by decreasing healing or increasing damage doesn't matter). It should end because one healer outplays the other mana wise.

Dampening is an awfull mechanic and I can't believe people are supporting it.


#4302333 enh purge spam needs to go

I just rerolled bm hunter and my purge is just as good while I'm harder to kill and have more cc. Explain.

edit: I also do more dmg.


#4287889 Enhance shaman WoD!

Posted Abidalzim on 07 December 2014 - 12:56 AM

Anyone tried some more comps, what's good? I'm stuck at 2k with turbo... we could play better of course, but it feels like the comp doesn't have much potential and for every win we have to outplay the dumb hunter cleaves hard.

Some random thoughts about WoD enhance from me:
- cap totem + projection is generally a must, which means you can't take persistance + storm ele
- storm ele is crap anyway, totem has 26k hp and you can't capstun, ground or freedom if it's down. It also has the same autocast button as earth ele stun, which is just annoying since you can only click it off
- unleash elements sprint is really good, you can kite somewhat well with freedom + unleash, saving spirit walk for other times
- fire ele is slowed and rooted in africa all the time
- windshear is utter shit vs. teams with good positioning now, 12 sec cd and only 25 yards range means healers are outranging it all the time
- 2 set bonus is godly, unless you happen to fight a team with a priest, shaman, mage, dk, prot warr or a hunter, in that case it useless since it gets dispelled or spellstolen.
- Our lvl 100 talents suck, I'll be playing with the shock talent since I despise the storm ele
- Our lvl 90 talents are garbage as well
- lvl 75 talents happen to be garbage as well, ancestral guidance heals for nothing
- that being said, our offhealing is rather decent
- I do the least dmg in every arena, unless other team sucks
- landing a hex on a healer means the other team is shit and you're a god at faking interrupts, reflects, groundings and landing cross cc. hey, at least it's still doable at 2k where I suck around the rets/hunters/ferals don't know how to play their boosted char yet,
- purge is very strong atm, however enha dps rotation nowadays with echo is so gcd spammy that you lose a substantial amount of your already low dps when you purge. Still worth it though.
- I'm finding myself never switching glyphs at all. Lightning shield, frostbrand and cap totem seem necessary. I think the only one that might be useful is 60 % shamrage, if you're sure you'll be nuked superhard and can't live with 30 %.
- I wish I was a dwarf
- unless i'm blatantly mistaken, ascendance is physical damage and not nature anymore, meaning it doesn't go through BoP, but you can nuke through ams now
- I like the tremor change. I always thought that the change in 4.0 ..6? was retarded. You need to be super careful not to get double feared with your healer
- Is it only me, or did they change magma totem so it ticks instantly when you drop it? It's super good at getting rogues and ferals out of stealth.
- I'm still crying for our old earthbind :(

The wolves thing is stupid, played some 3s skirmishs before against rmp, with the 60% sham rage glyph and wolves, popped wolves just as they opened, sat like 3seconds off cc and used sham rag + stone form I was like a god haha
I was facing another enhance shammy and realised the 2 set wolves bonus can be purged.

#4209010 Now that MoP is coming to an end...

That was just S11, and it also had legendary daggers/staff in arena + tentacle rape warriors. RLS was THE comp back then. If memory serves, even the finals to some tourny were RLS vs RLS.

S9 was very melee cleave-populated, with I think DKs farming casters left right and center. Anyone remembers this? :]

S10 was actually pretty good and I honestly can't remember anything being too OP or UP in it.
Nah, every season was like this, except that s9 also had literally 1/3 glad spots taken by frost tsg on some bgs. Lock+rsham was the dominant comp during the whole expansion, there was Shatterplay early on and then frost MLS, LSD2, Shadowplay, Shadowcleave, RLS, fire MLS. Lock+rsham aids in 9000 variations. Also facing the occasional triple dps as early as s10. Ice lance spamming RMP with openers out of invis once in a while for extra fun.

Sure, I had lots of fun while playing MLS/FLS early on, but then one more thing happened that made Cata absolute garbage unless you already had a bunch of people to play with. Smaller realms literally died during s9/s10, especially after the mmr fiasco. Often you simply couldn't make any viable comps anymore, because you had maybe 3-4 players that were 2.2+ capable, but you were fucked if they happened to play the wrong classes/specs.

Cata at least was diverse. Now it's lock shaman x or Mage Druid x every game.
No it wasn't, almost every game was either lock/rsham/x, triple dps to rape the rsham or the occasional rmp. It was garbage and aids to face, unless you played said comps.
