#4317474 So anyone else miss Necrotic Strike?

if necrotic strike was in the game right now i feel like it would be one of the most broken abilities...

frost is the way to go right now sadly, its more damage and you dont gain anything by going unholy really.

MOP and Cata version I agree it would be too strong since the absorbs were retarded and there was a casting speed debuff which is not needed. However a 10-15k absorb per strike even in the current meta would hardly be OP and it would still be better than Scourge Strike which does 5k on plate. Scourge strike is something Blizz cannot make stronger because PVE.

Would also help protect Soul Reaper which only crits for 30k while my hunter partner does instant 45k Killshots with no resource or CD.

And I am only taking about Unholy 3s since both 2s and even duels we seem to be fine. However in 3s, Frost seems to be all out better even with Shadowcleave which is supposed to be an Unholy Comp.

im really not being ironic, if you faced this you would understand, he is literally a sub 2.2 player. You can say whatever you want about that being an ironic statement but I never backpeddled and I was certainly never as bad as that.
im fully aware of the current state of hunters, i spent most of my time on beta talking about how incredibly stupid the new trap mechanic was. the main result of that on here was rage from lots of hunters at a mage trying to tell them that traps could ever be even slightly more broken then polymorph

also i make no judgement about how good or bad you are as a player, what i found ironic was you calling out a hunter for being a complete unknown before this season, when before season 15 and your awakening as a skill-capped elemental shaman, the majority of people here had probably never heard of you either, other then "oh, that's the guy who's warrior got banned during the PQR banwave" :)

PS: all u mongs don't understand the difference between my comp and his. I am the first ever person to play brewmaster in high rated pvp to my knowledge. I played it since week 1 in WOD when i tore up the skirmish ladder as brewmaster/boomkin

voltariux has only been brewmaster for a couple of days. Though i respect him as a far superior player with a more synergized team i can't help but to be annoyed when people quote him or venruki (who got the idea from my youtube video) as the first brewmaster pvpers

I don't understand how people don't mention hunter passive healing, I play with NV and I play a hybrid, Moonkins/SPs are perfect examples of successful healing nerf, perfect for the game, but whenever I face a fucking hunter they seem to do 2-6 times my healing pfft. You got faint death and camouflage to interrupt spells casted on you, and on top of all this bs you got 60% speed buff from disengage and a 12 sec cd on trap. I my opinion for a trap to be 12 sec cd it should only last 4 secs, thats a fair trade.

While at it, why does monks, dks and locks still have double trinkets?!

17 sec AMS?

Warlocks locking down whole fucking team cuz sacking shards is hard?

Double sac, bop and freedom hello?!

What's obvious to the community is never obvious to the developers.

Personally I'd love for Blizz to remove some DK trinkets if they could just give us some fucking utility so I dont feel helpless "peeling" for my team whenever there's a rogue spamming BoS or a ret spamming freedom or just about any class doing anything to any of my partners.

I really like what Blizzard did here with that PVE/PVP gear. If PVE Mythic warfroged gear is in fact better (doesn't scale down) in PVP than normal PVP gear then it's big up to blizz, for doing this. I really like the idea that a certain level of dedication is rewarded in such a way.

I might be missing something, but without a doubt Resto shaman has the least damage mitigation from all healers( actually there is NONE, we don't have any damage mitigation besides our armor and versatility bonus from dispelling which is like 0.77%).

what you guys think might be a good way to save this class from the endless boredom of being trained by the most ridiculous comps every single game.

Yes, you might be missing something. I don't want to be rude, but the best way out is just to play more and stop moaning on forums that your class is bad. Get used to the changes and continue playing. Never change the class or reroll, you remind me people who love a team which is wining all the tournaments, and when the team has a bad period you leave it alone and choose a new top team to love.

When you enumerated the "defensive cooldowns" you forgot about the 12 second cooldown wind shear. It's a range kick. There are no instant CCs now, you can stop a CC, while, for example, a paladin can't do shit about it. I was watching a stream yesterday from the paladin's perspective and he simply can't do anything while the mage is casting sheep. You can wind shear and los. You can use GROUNDING. It's a perfect totem which can stop any spell even if you're staying behind the pillar. I often ground deep freezes, fists of justices, freezing traps. The freedom "which dies in 1 auto-attack" is AOE. It is applied to the whole team. You also have the frost shock to control the movement of your enemies. You have hex. Which is a curse and can't be simply dispelled.

Shamans were just better than other healers last season. It has been changed. You have to get used to it. It's still one of the best classes in the game but now you can't heal your team up with a single healing stream totem while CCed. You can't use healing tide and heal all the aoe bursts of the LSD2. Adapt! Master your skills!

I suggest listening to the Eminem's song called "Survival" if you like it. It is very inspirational.

Looney - the best shaman in the world made it 36:0 in 3s in the beginning of the season. Are shamans bad? You have huge area to get better. Until you don't become as good as looney - stop whine because it's shit. You know you can do better! But you don't want to exert yourself. You want easy wins, easy rating, easy title.

Be a fighter. This topic is a shame.

Yours,

#4288861 How do you deal with ...

Posted Esiwdeer on 07 December 2014 - 09:13 PM

In my opinion, it is because this game is mostly social and not at all balanced. If I fail my flash in League or get wallbanged in CS I'm not bad forever, I just fucked up. These games are fair and competitive, my rating in them most likely means something close to accurate. Still, sometimes I clutch, sometimes I don't. Nobody wins every time. We have all missed lethal, we have all fatfingered something, we have all used Pain Suppression in the starting area, we have all Flashbanged our entire teams on accident and then teamkilled as many of them as possible afterwards out of shame, to make it seem like we were trolling the entire time.

Not in World of Warcraft. In this game, if you get Sapped you're trash forever. A 27 year old diabetic named Johnwald Dickson(merely a friend of the Rogue who sapped you) who, in 2004, lived with his mother Robertsa in the swamps of North Carolina will remember killing you forever. In fact, 6 years after knowing you he will tell people he farmed you on Shadowburn in Season 6. "That kid is trash." he'll say, and nobody will defend you, because nobody but him cares. You have never even been to Shadowburn. He is still playing. He has been playing this entire time.

It starts with Blizzard. Blizzard’s je ne sais quoi is making you feel like you're really good at their games. Everyone running around is the main character, the hero, the best. The same people who 3 weeks ago were posting RealID statuses about winning the next year's BlizzCon have today listed their 5 x R1 Spectral Tiger Disc Priest on EpicNPC.

These people, when they feel like they're good and known for being good, have a great deal of their self-worth invested into their characters. When they lose it's very a very emotional experience for them. Once the game stops reinforcing their delusions of grandeur, they stop caring about it and, in the same stroke, stop caring about the relationships which are no longer useful to them.  

So, we have these idiots who have invested a noticeable portion of their self-worth into a game where the outcome may or may not be changed by the happenstance that their enemy was a Dwarf. Let that sink in for a second, you nerds.

That’s the whole point I think, to watch nerds get mad because they had to fight a Dwarf, basically. Anything else just seems kind of like a waste of time.

So what you basically try to say is:

Good player on shit class (read: not-op-anymore-class, I know SP isn't SHIT) vs Good player on good class - Player A wins

-> Shit class is good class now.

?

I'm fully aware SP isn't as bad as some people want to make it look. Neither do I 100% care, cause I'm mostly playing disc on my main priest. Nonetheless the nerfs in 5.3 hit them incredibly hard on the defensive side, making it close to impossible to MD vs any half-brained team, and taking a 2nd big defensive CD after dispersion away.
Of course the damage can still be retarded when you accumulate procs, or get some got insanity flays off. But even if a lot of people will contradict me here, damage isn't everything in arena... not even in MoP ;)

No hate though. As I said, I know the spec isn't as fucked as it seems.

Pretty much, though I would phrase it like this: player A is extremely good at this game, so I expect that they will use their class to (almost) the maximum potential.

Player A is a shadow priest and has reached #1 on the ladder. This doesn't mean he's better than 1 specific person on another class, it means that across all games that are played on the ladder, he won more games against better players than any other team.

That tells me that the class he's playing has the potential to be at the top (i.e. top tier comp). It's not like he's cheating, he's playing the same shadow priest as everyone else, and given that many of his games are streamed, I can say that he's not getting carried either.

The problem with many people that play this game is that they give up before the gates even open. Statements like this: "making it close to impossible to MD vs any half-brained team" are very defeatist and simply not true. If you're easily getting cross-CCed and interrupted at the same time as your healer while at the same time your 3rd partner isn't able to peel or stop said interrupts... you're just getting outplayed and the loss has nothing to do with class mechanics. I would suggest to look at your positioning, because it's probably awful if the above situation is happening with regularity.

Instead of bemoaning the tools you don't have, make use of the ones that you do have. SPs have some of the best instant burst in the game once it's built up, can switch easily, offheal, dispel bubble/block, dispel their allies as a DPS spec, have the shortest cooldown AOE CC in the game, another fear with a very long effective range (instantly put down, and while psyfiend has its counters the upside is that it casts separately from the priest himself, allowing multiple simultaneous actions, a very powerful tool), a spammable offensive dispel, the option for a rooted horrify/disarm if the situation calls for it, and a long duration silence. Dispersion is still one of the better defensive abilities in the game as well (usable while in CC, essentially unkillable for the duration unless used at 2%, gives you freedom and full movement speed to allow for repositioning, and one of the shorter "oh shit" defensive cooldowns at 2 minutes).

Though it sounds like a cool and fun thing to implement, this system sounds like it would be highly abused.

As if rating boosts, carries, ddosing and win trading wasn't bad enough already, it will just get even worse.
