#3807114 Moonkin Expertise and Mage/Moonkin/X?

Posted Supatease on 18 November 2012 - 08:59 AM

Moonkins are the jack of all trades yet masters of none.

Mages - Have higher single target burst and it happens WAY more often.

Warlocks - Have way higher aoe pressure and defensive cds.

Spriests - Have way higher defensive capabilties for their allies and themselves.

Moonkins - Have 2/3rds to a half of the power of each of those classes, making them obsolete most often when an opposing team has one paired with another or paired with warrior.

TBH after playing a little bit of this expansion I feel moonkins are in a worse position than they were for cata. They also feel way more gimicky and just as "skilless" as in cata, relying on a 1 hit wonder crit with all your cds is a little bogus when a mage can do it every 10 seconds and you can only do it every 3 minutes and theres still a chance you won't.

I'd recomend rerolling mage, demo lock or spriest if you want to do good.

My 2 cents.

Also, if you wanna see some moonkin action, check out www.twitch.tv/fadezzlol. Shaman/Monk POV but I play with him pretty regularly. Follow, and if hes not streaming and you still wanna see some shit check the vods!

No vods to see :(

Moonkin/Mage/Healer seems amazing.

I really want to play it, but no good mages...

I consistently do 200k+ starsurges, I can't imagine the damage in a deep followed by beam + vortex.

Is vortex actually working in arena now? Hmmm..

And yea i get over 200k starsurges pretty regularly. Our damage definitely needs looking at. Maybe incarnation and vigil triggering a 30s internal on eachother? In other news I have found the best comp we have so far to be Warrior/Moonkin/X. Good ol melee caster healer. Tried with a DK too but DK's are in a very very sorry state. Played a ton of games last night as those 2 and warlock playing both demo and destro. Destro feels stronger than demo, but warrior just trumped both warlock specs.

I think people just refuse to even try UA because just spamming DoTs on people like a retard doesn't yield the same results as it did in past seasons.

Now you actually have to do more to do dmg???? go figure

The reason Affliction is sucking atm isn't because the spec is broken. It's sucking right now because of the same reason Boomkins and Fire Mages are garbage right now, that being multi target pressure and 10 second burst isn't viable because of the nature of CC, healing, and defensive CD's in game right now. Healing and CC would be the biggest offenders.

Healing is over the top and getting the entire team to 30% health isn't even close to a kill anymore. One Healing Stream totem with a Riptide and 2 GHW's and the ENTIRE team is topped off. Healers don't stay OOM since spirit has been buffed as a stat. In a raid environment the change to Intellect and Spirit works out because healers are almost always casting, so the smaller mana pools need to regen faster. In Arenas though, getting a break of a few seconds isn't that rare with the way CC works right now. Mana regen is through the roof and keeping a healer OOM is nearly impossible.

CC is the other problem. Affliction has burst now, but it takes more than the 3-4 second burst windows that are needed to kill something now. On top of that, you need to be casting the whole time. In that time frame, you are almost 100% guaranteed to be peeled.

The only way to "fix" Aff (because it's top in PvE atm) would be to take all our damage away from DoTs and put it towards Haunt and MG. If they nerf healing output we'll actually be able to rot teams again which would put Affliction in a great position.

The only thing that I think is really weird is that mages have Chaos Wave on a 10 second cooldown. :|

Samx cares about money and money only hell even i know that lol. All i'm saying is having some 6/10 on skype getting oggled by retards spamming tits or gtfo isn't realy how twitch was designed can't you do that on livecams or something? I mean there are still a good amount of people who do enjoy "arena" streams and tbh the way it is atm in 2months or so it will mostly be these mediocre looking retarded girls doing shit all but getting gawped at by kids.

I'm actualy 50/50 about this i like watching your stream when it's not that webcam "can i see feet" bullshit and it's just arena . Idk maybe i just don't see the funny side to it. That said i find the other stuff you do pretty funny and have been followed since you started on twitch pmuch.
The people who do care about arena, watch you, and not me, dont think that im going to ruin the twitch community by doing what i do. People such as yourself and a few others will stick with watching Samx etc. But most people want entertainment. And thats another diff between me and Samx, ofc im not partnered, but the MAIN reason i want to be partnered is so i can get more viewers, get spotlights etc. and entertain more people, once im partnered sure ill run ads, but very few, just enough to where i can pay for gas and anything else i need in college which really isnt a lot since my parents are paying for my dorm etc. I do streaming for the sole purpose to entertain people because i love doing that, I love making people laugh, I dont care about impressing people with my skill that no1 cares about atm. Ill do w/e it takes to make people enjoy my stream, such as fucking snort tabasco. Hating on my stream is hating on entertainment itself.

This is Sodapoppin, this was my toon before i got banned for botting BGs on stream because IDGAF. I stream entertainment, no1 gives a shit anymore about high rated arena, Woundman/Neilyo are some the most FAMOUS rogues out there, and i see them role with such few viewers because no offense to them, i see yall posting above this, but no1 really gives a shit atm...No1 cares if youve been to tournaments. When i see glad titles on people, shit even rank 1 titles, it means nothing to me like it used to back in the day. Samx is still convinced people care about his rating hes achieved, or his amazing "rogue skill" he has. Truth is no1 gives a shit, only reason he got viewers is cause of the way he tlked shit about other streamers, raged, and started some hardcore intense drama, which attracted a shit ton of haters, in fact he has LITERALLY 5x more haters than he does fans. He just bans them all in his chat, or his mods do, so they dont hurt his Ego. Cdew gets viewers because hes established and already has followers. If your a new rank 1 player who streams, Corbs, Unumz etc. They get such few viewers compared to me and other streamers that do the same, becuase people prefer entertainment. Samx DID entertainment but now cant because his partnership got threatened with the drama he caused against my stream. It makes me happy that most of the people in this thread already see exactly what im saying in the posts that im seeing. Maybe in Mists some of yalls streams will become amazingly successful and Skill win world of warcraft will matter again.

#3813074 New totem changes

Posted Moreudirl on 29 November 2012 - 07:28 PM

i played around 50-60 games on my shaman, they went well moonkin warr sham among other comps woo. Lets just say i 100% support this nerf even if it is no doubt WAYYYY over the top. I havent had as much fun on my shaman since wotlk, it will be clear who the good shamans are yet again :)

short version: big nerf, way over the top... however, it makes shamans fun again and for the first time since season 8, better players now once again have a chance to shine on the class.

If you are in a bad spot, or make a poor decision or your team gets double feared on a switch to you, you probably deserve to die. Just need to bring down damage a bit for the more bursty classes (mages warriors you know the usual suspects), IE reverse pvp power increase or match it with a resil boost and the game might have a chance to actually be fun again.

(shamans are not the only healer who dies to being trained with stun silence combinations, and you still have a chance to live maybe upgrade BM trinket first with conquest boost system etc, it has great synergy with Nat Guardian talent)


#3812223 Any1 else thinks that the spellsteal nerf shouldnt be like that?

Posted stalebagel on 28 November 2012 - 12:49 PM

mage playstyle needs to get as far away from spamming spell steal as possible, this change was for the best.
