Something I noticed a couple hours ago is fingers of frost used to cause your next -spell- to be considered frozen, which would effect frostbolt itself or even FFB


It allowed you to do other things then just spam ice lance. Frostbolt needs to be -the- main damage spell. Frost does not need a single offensive CD other then icy veins, and even veins isn't needed half the time.

A mage standing there spaming frostbolt into you should make you react. Not because he's spamming sheep or popping big CDs. Mages shouldn't be able to tank damage, nor should melee be able to hop onto them whenever they feel like


<- been playing wotlk a lot recently

Stop glorifying TBC and WOTLK. TBC had two absolutely terrible seasons if you played anything that wasn't resto druid, arms warrior, sub rogue or affli lock. WOTLK invented double melee teamcomps that our old TBC skill capped warlocks and druids said was retarded, but when spellcleaves became viable in S7, suddenly you couldn't hear them talking anymore. Too busy auto winning 90% of their games as LSD, I imagine.

The game is as it is, it's always been poorly balanced, and it's up to you to deal with it. Reroll the new FOTM class like a rabid dog or try to play better than your opponent to make up for the fact that your class isn't as good as said FOTM class/spec. But please shut the fuck up about how comps have become retarded in later expansions, as if RMPing the enemy healer took any sort of skill. And by "RMPing" I mean Sap> have your priest sit on their sapped healer, fear when sap ends > then have your mage use his retarded undodgeable cc called deep into sheep into blanket CS > Blind and potential Sap afterwards.

Does TSG or any double melee comp require a PHD to be played correctly ? No, it does not. But neither do RMPs or spellcleaves. The game has always been like this so stop thinking the game used to be perfect. People used to actually complain about WOTLK and TBC balance all the fucking time, and for good reasons.

No-one is holding up TBC and wrath as the poster childs of balance - this game will never, ever be as poorly balanced as season 5. Anyone that whines about balance nowadays has no idea what they missed. What those expansions did have, though, was classes with unique strengths and weaknesses and a game that was actually fun to play.

I think this Legion version of frost mages (to stay in the trend) way more healthy than the WoD one. Perhaps you can see some ridiculous numbers (And i play yesterday some games in the Beta against frost mages, it wasn't as huge as i saw in video. Maybe it was nerf?), but about this :

Quote

people said ice nova was fun before wod launched

frostbolts hitting for 30% of player hp with cooldowns, 1% without cooldowns is pretty much the same thing

It's not the same thing because frostbolt is a cast. Maybe there are some casting protection (aura mastery?), but still, they have to stand still, AND, they take lot of damage. Maybe when the overall damage will be tuned, it will be different, but right now, if a mage wants to destroy you, he have to be immobile, instead of the blazingspeed blink instantx4.

I do think there is some good things in Legion (I did some games which were really interesting and not "I'll kill you in 2s" like some others), there is obviously some bad ones, and the first season will probably be a clone of the season 5 in Wotlk. (Huge burst everywhere, classes being broken). Just be positive, time will say if you were right or wrong.

I'd rather face a "destro lock" version of a mage in Legion than the fire version. If you haven't played the Beta yet, fire mage doesn't have ridiculous damage like "1 million crit", but they do it all while moving, and without casting.

Even if it's broken, the fact to have an entire new meta to discover, artifact to grind, prestige to do, is a good thing in short-term, finally. (For me, at least.)

actually i have more or less the same amount of skills (at least as a mage)

afaik you can purge ice form and since they removed many buffs this purges will come through very fast

flurry does do shit damage

its not the dmg but the freeze effect which makes flurry juicy


dont get me wrong, i dont want to fanboy-defend everything blizzard does but one shoulndt talk down everything either.

The one thing i noticed is that i really enjoy all 3 mages specs because of of their style and not only because of the numbers.
There might be some balancing problems and stuff which has to change.
But since a long time i finally can log on my mage and play skirmishes, duels and bgs and actually have fun because of the gameplay instead of only the competitive aspect of 3s.

Never said they didnt have less buttons I was saying the gameplay is nothing close to one another.  Even with less buttons legion mage is much more in depth than fuckin wod bullshit

You need to stop being such a pessimist nerd it's starting to make you look sort of slow.  If you don't like legion thats cool man but don't go saying its the same style as wod lol you can't be that stupid

Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but I think the game is better when they aren't trying to make 30+ specs work in pvp.  TBC probably didn't have enough specs viable, but it was far closer to an ideal state than the current setup is.  It's better to have ~6-12 unique and distinguished specs viable than it is to try to force it with 30+ specs that can't be viable without extreme homogenization.

I think the main reason that people find WoD trash, is just because during one year, we didn't have any change at all in term of classes. So, yeah, it's quite boring, and knowing the nature of the PvP community, you just need one popular streamer to say his own opinion to have a mindless herd of people who will blindly follow him. (Like religion, or this site.).

Wod is maybe scripted, but i'm pretty sure if today's people would play TBC (or Wotlk), that would be "meh" too. Of course there would be more diversity in teams, but only because the gap between the 4 chosen ones (SLSLock, rogue, macewar, and rdruid) and the other was way too important. It was not rare to read that anything combined with a rdruid become instantly viable.

TBC was exactly like that, 4 specs during 3 seasons. Play with them, or don't play arenas.

I'm ok to have spec which will be eternally viable while being better and easier than others (Like frost mages), but not with a extrem gap like in TBC, and not with too much time between hypothetical changes.
Maybe the artifact grind can "add" some kind of meta-changes if some spec got "OP" talents in it?

i think 2 was more balanced than 3 but i don't actually know since i didn't hit level 70 for the first time till the end of s3 and even then i was still a potato. just speculation from a lot of years reading.

TBC and "balance" are 2 opposite words. Maybe some classes received some buffs/nerf, but overall, besides the huge change in PvP between S1 and S2 (Which add things which seems natural now, like, universal trinket, dr, and cc duration limit), TBC was dominated by 4 individuals spec, the only ones which can survive in a meta without any cooldown (The 2 spec who rely on cooldown if i remember was ret paladin - but dispellable - and enhancement shamans with wolves), and with poor substain damage.
It was extremly rare to see a comp without one of those spec. Especially in 2v2, which was "important" back then, because you could earn the title/mount.

About classes being mechanically simplified, it's only a matter of point of view, of when you watch it, and with who you played with. Hpal was at their best "gameplay wise" in MoP, while the gameplay in Wotlk was extremly poor. (We had a bad reputation of easy healer because we had... nothing outside of big casted heals.).
Mages have always been a class i hate more and more after Wotlk because they got more and more tools to counter my class while i lose more and more to protect against their. But when i play with a enhancement shaman in Cataclysm, he was not afraid of them.

A holy pal who faced a RMP full pve who train him from A to Z in ring of valor doesn't have the same opinion of what a "retard" setup is compared to the mage who face a protwar/MMhunter/x and during when he can't leave his pillar without being mauled to death. (In the perfect xpac where nobody complained at all about everything, of course.)

And of course, having lots of binds and being able to do lots of different thing doesn't mean that your class is hard to play, or mechanically more interesting. Or the shadowfrost DK in S5 was the hardest spec to play. (Because you had everything in the game to counter everything. Basically what a rdruid has been during years with all the new spell they gave to them - like blink, symbiosis, magic dispel, biggest heal without casting, more mobility etc etc...)

9 was more balanced than 10 i think. maybe it was just bg it felt like all the rls/mls multipled by then

definitely agree with 7 and didn't play enough mop to have a valid opinion

Not to completely derail the thread, but season 9 was one of the worst in my opinion.
Feral Druids
Double frost dk comps
Mages

Not fond memories.
