A change to prot warriors being able to purge would have been nice.

#4271506 Ice Nova

Posted Nadagast on 21 November 2014 - 09:52 AM

I went off on twitter the other day about Ice Nova.  https://twitter.com/...926915233431552

As I understand it, Ice Nova:

1. Hardest hitting Frost Mage spell
2. Instant cast
3. AoE
4. Stuns  (or disorients?)
5. On Polymorph DR
6. Short cooldown
7. Two charges
8. In PvP, very overpowered, forcing Mages to lose iconic Frost Nova spell

Ice Nova is one of the best examples of PvP blindness in WoD.  As I said on twitter, my best guess is that the numbers must be this way is to make it PvE DPS-competitive with the other talents on this tier.

Does a single person disagree with me that Ice Nova is a bad ability for WoW?  Can anyone make an argument that it's a good ability? (if you don't have posting access here, tweet or PM me)

I'm legitimately interested, if you have an argument.  I have to admit that I'm a bit baffled as to why/how it's made it this far.

Edit: I realize I never specifically asked for Blizzard to nerf Ice Nova. Blizzard please nerf Ice Nova--it's an absurd ability.

It's actually pretty easy to explain, they most likely don't have time to read all the feedback they get. And with the small amount of pvp players giving feedback (tbh in general feedback from the pvp community is pretty lacking), the actual feedback is overshadowed by the feedback from the PVE community.

Imagine shitton upon shitton of feedback threads, messages etc. etc. from shitty pve'ers. Now there is this one good pvp'er that actually cares and gives feedback like DroonX, but his comment is a needle in a haystack (read pile of pve shit). Even if the entire pvp community would give the same feedback. They would still recieve over 20x as much feedback from the pve community on stuff..

You may have a point, which is why I've just come to accept it after all these years.  

However, that doesn't cover how something like this WoD launch can make it all the way to live.

Take season 5 shadowfrost for example (if you've been around that long).  That's the type of thing I can kind of see could get through beta testing (still somewhat retarded though if tons of people are laming the same thing, it's like they're not even paying attention).  It was an unanticipated combination of things that allowed that to work, especially considering the stupid shit like using that blue level 30 something mace that had a mace stun on it.  

Some issues, however, are another animal entirely.  Early WotLK burst was a good example of this, and current self healing is also a good example.  These are things that ANYONE who has absolutely any knowledge and experience with the game could identify literally immediately, by themselves, no feedback needed.  That stuff like this goes live every expansion merely speaks to the mind-blowing incompetence of the devs in charge of making this game.

#4261858 WoD OP Healing VoDs - including 20min 91% Dampening survivals

Posted ProdeGaming on 11 November 2014 - 09:00 PM

All VoDs are about outhealing the enemy and are some of the most spectacular overpowered Beta(soon to be Live) healings, non healers outhealing 1 and 2 DPSes by themselves.

Every Arena VoD ends by either 20 min time limit(at 91% Dampening) or Win/Draw.(1 exception) Most cases there is little to no attempt made to kill the enemy or win, the intent is outhealing/surviving their dmg.
*Dampening affecting the classes differently is due to the bug of Dampening not reducing % heals. (the % results are according to Skada healing meters)

Destro Warlock (~1% of healing affected by Dampening*)

3v1 - Ret/Mage/Disc http://www.twitch.tv/holcel/c/5477530
2v1 - Ret/UH DK http://www.twitch.tv/holcel/c/5392590

2v1 - Moonkin/Rogue http://www.twitch.tv/holcel/c/5438124

Ret Paladin (100% of healing affected by Dampening)
2v2's are because Ret healing is most effective/spectacular when healing others

2v2 - Fury/UH DK (teammate healing) http://www.twitch.tv/holcel/c/5438239
2v2 - Destro/RShaman
(teammate healing) http://www.twitch.tv/holcel/c/5407387 (Note: Gladiator Stance Prot Warrior is not a tank in WoD)

The post been made in relative short time so feel free to tell link errors. I'm not using this twitch account anymore, its purpose was to record Beta balance issues.

Posted Marshmellow on 16 November 2014 - 12:00 PM

really annoying trying to kill a ret or feral and they either just heal to full from 20% in one global or just run around and do whatever they want until their cds come back up

watching a ret heal the same amount as 6 surging mists in one half second flash of light makes me want to cry

8 hours in glad sanct queue. Fuck yes.

Btw, for 400 easy resources try this: http://imgur.com/a/DhspD#pKpmlpK
Also, farming rares/treasures speeds things up a bit since they reward 10-40 resources per kill/loot.

One perfect example.. Im qing at 2700 MMR yesterday.. For whatever reason, the game decides it wants to put us into a game with a 2350 beast mmr beast cleave. My mage goes from about 76% life to 0 (without blocking) in about 3 globals. 150k ascendance stormblast, almost 200k ele blast, 150k chimaera shot. There was no warning of this other than seeing the ascendance CD popped, which my mage promptly responded to with a Pom poly on the enhance and a CS on the priest, (hunter was PH'd) only to have the Enhance AND the hunter AUTO trinket and do the damage immediately anyway..

Do you think that my 2700 MMR team got outskilled or owned by this 2350 Beast cleave?

I think your post is a prime example of a rivalduelist mindset, as well.
