Arena in 5.4

13 September 2013 - 03:25 PM

The general pace of arena feels pretty amazing right now.

I played some wargames yesterday and was downright amazed at how different (and better) the game felt.  Damage and healing values feel much closer to TBC values than ever before.  You typically see kills coming far in advance, you actually have time to react and use cooldowns appropriately, etc.  Oh, and healer mana seems to be a thing again.

The game feels very different in general though and will take some getting used to for healers I suspect.  Seems like people hover at low health for the vast majority of the game, which used to create a general state of panic, but will just be the norm now.  Class balance seems like it'll be pretty decent this patch, but it's probably a little too early to tell.  All of this, combined with the merged battlegroups, is making this patch look like one of the most promising (and drastically game changing) ones yet.  Props to Blizzard, think they finally did something right this patch!

Some 5.4 Resil Numbers

Due to base resil being increased from 65% to 72%, the resil formula being slightly altered, and the addition of the new trinket resil bonus, thought people might be interested in seeing some numbers for 5.4:

(5500 resil is about the max that you could possibly get, if fully gemming for it.)
