#4570296 Non-damage buttons are missing

I share your sentiments. Just fear they have chosen the path they follow, no turning back anymore.

Not really, watch this :
http://legion.wowhea...monk/windwalker (I pick WW randomly.)

You gain "PvP talents" at level 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 / 13, 16, 19, 22, 25, 28 / 31, 34, 37, 40, 43, 46.
And between those levels, in the alpha, you gain worthless rewards, like gold (200), and artifact power. Why not add a external column with active non-damaging buttons (old spells like buffs, and new one, why not) which will be learned automatically in the missing level numbers. Which is between 1 and 28 spells slots. I'm not saying they should add 28 spells, no. But if they saw that one of their PvP talents will never be used because too situationnal, they can add it into to the list. Spinning fire blossom is an example, considering you have the choice between this and the FoF stun.

We still have the "new" PvP talent tree, we will have those abilities, new people can "build" their class by grinding honor (and so, learning how to use spell, while veterans players already know), everyone is happy.

You will still have the "Vanilla nostalgic" part ("If you play bad but more, you will have more than the guy who play better but less") where you have to grind huge amount of honor, but for cosmetic rewards.

Add to this a daily "event" (Like the actual PvE one, or skirmishes one) which increase by a lot the amount of honor win in a random Legion outside area, for people who wants to kill time between arenas by hunting people in the world. Like killing people in Tyr's Hand before a 15min warsong gulch to face an organized team which played 20h/24 to have their rank.

That would add the "mmo" feeling for people who miss it. Mmo feeling which has never been here in WoW beside the end-game, considering in every xpac (Vanilla/BC/Wotlk/Cata/MoP/WoD/Legion), you could level a character entirely alone, elite quest and dongeons where not mandatory to be max level. (Like Ryzom, a mmo where you HAD TO be in a group - tank heal dps - only to level up).
I'm the living proof, i never group when i level a character, never. Even for PvP (Rank 10 during school holiday), i played NEXT to people, not WITH them.

There's one thing Legion absolutley MUST ADDRESS, even with this whole pruning thing, and that's HEALING COMING FROM SOURCES THAT ARE NOT HEALERS THEMSELVES.

CASTERS ( unless your class is a warlock and your spec is Affliction ) SHOULD NOT have any self healing. Ice Block healing, Ember Taps, toss it all out of the window.

CASTER HYBRIDS such as Shadow Priests, Balance Druids, Elemental Shamans SHOULD be able to dish out some offheals that can potentially save the situation, but it should be taxed in some way. A Saving Grace mechanic on their direct target healing? F.ex. Shadow has this thing called Shadow Mend in Alpha - make it heal for approx 25% of someone's health on first cast, Shadowpriest gets debuffed, next heal is 12% of someone's health, so on so on, same would apply for Elemental and Balance. Or make those heals effective but cost insane amount of resources, so you have to choose between damage and healing.

MELEE and MELEE hybrids ( with the exception of Retribution Paladins ) should absolutely NOT be able to dish out any noticable self healing whatsoever. Windwalker healing? Imo remove Surging Mist from them completely, the only thing I'd keep is Chi Wave talent tier self healing. Enhancement Shaman healing? Toss it out of the window, and focus on their aspect of being the offensive support melee hybrid. Warriors, Hunters, Rogues? Remove their self healing completely. Death Knights should be able to heal themselves, but not in their current capacity. Frost should lose self healing completely, while Unholy should keep it. Retribution Paladins should keep their healing as they're the defensive+utility melee hybrid. As for Demon Hunters, I've seen them spell leech from 10 to 100% health in an instant - what the fuck?


PVP bandages should heal you for approx 60% health over the course of 10ish seconds with a minute ( or longer ) debuff that prevents you from rebandaging.

Arena food should act the same way ordinary food acts. Okay you managed to escape to eat? Good for you, you're rewarded for your possible outplay or whatever.

Also, current healer healing is absolutely unjustifiable with the amount of self healing left in the game. Why do Hunters have a self healing aura for crying out loud?

I don't think this is a novel point, but I posted it at a place where maybe the developers will see it:  http://us.battle.net...pic/20742944716

Support and/or discuss if you like.  At this point, my hopes are low, but, shit, I love WoW arena, when it's good.

Ashran in Legion
Level 110 players will be able to queue for Ashran from the UI in Legion. It will work similar to battlegrounds, you can queue with up to 5 players.
can see this being an incredibly popular Legion feature!

Such a sad and pathetic way to "troll" (cant even call it that) because when someone says their life/safety is in danger, you have to assume it is true because it would be a grave error to bet someones life/safety on it being a prank and have it turn out to not be a prank (therefore it requires no skill at all to sell the "troll").

Great job to this bathwater scum for proving he is just a sad pathetic attention seeking nerd.  Even more sad that he has deluded himself into believing this prank is something to be proud of.

Neilyo said it all.

I hope this thread was worth losing access over.

id rather bop was a 20 sec cd if it got dispelled first every time, purge rng is a joke
thats because u never played with a paladin haha

if u had any clue how frustrating it is to sac every deep possible in a 15 min game, but it doesnt matter because of no dispell protection, atleast as the comps i play. I could imagine in shatter with 9 different trash buffs it must be hell, but as any meleecleave with 2 buffs sac and bop is useless

Seems to me like sockets does work, why wouldn't they work in arena anyway?

#4560468 Elite and Starships kicked from Tempo Storm

On late Tuesday night January 12th 2016 the holy paladin from team tempo storm tweeted out Hello... BIG news, Currently looking for a TEAM. You know what to expect :) The following day there were many rumors revolving around the team in various twitch streams. When I spoke with team Tempo Storm's rogue Pikaboo, who is still on the team, he said "we are just trying a new roster, we just get counter comped. We want a shaman comp we can play. All we had was 'god comp' and 'RMD' and could just easily lose to 'LSD' and its hard into 'FMP', now we have so many more comps." He then clarified that the two players to replace Elite and Starships would be Gorecki, who is known for his muilti-classing, and Chanimals.

I think spoke to Arthur aka Elite extensively about what happened. He told me "So despite having so much success, we still didn't actually reach our goals (winning blizzcon) and future GCD tournaments. From recent events, we struggled in a few tournaments and had the same results in tournaments, often due to being countered." I asked who's decision it was for the team roster to change, he replied "we didn't have a group decision to leave, Pikaboo and Jahmilli basically wanted to have 2 other players join the team to change up the comps. Now even though the decision seems rash, I was already open to trying out new teams and comps because as the way things were going weren't as expected." He also informed me they had no pressure from the sponsor of Tempo Storm themselves.
We also spoke about the replacements to the team, that being Gorecki and Chanimals. Elite said, "Because warlock/shaman has been the most successful comp in the last 3 expansions, it didn't make sense for our team to continue playing the comps we had because we really didn't have an answer to lock/shaman. But neither me nor Starship wanted to try playing Shaman because we didn't have a warlock on our team, so realistically there was no point for us to try.
I briefely got a comment from starships saying, "idk, prob for the better atm. Wasn't playing all that much and this way they get more comps. lock/shaman/x, ect. game is more about comps than anything else atm."

The four players have been together competitively for at least 2 years now, and they joined Tempo Storm before Blizzcon 2015 in August. The team was brought to Tempo Storm by hotted, who travels to multiple gaming events worldwide.  The team of Jahmilli and Pikaboo as well as the replacements will stay under the tag of Tempo Storm.

When I asked Elite if he had his eye on any teams or partners he replied, "well at the moment, I don' really have any big plans on joining other teams immediately, but I've definitely received offers. He also said that there were no long term hard feelings vs the players that removed him from the roster and that, and this is important "Also I just wanted to add in, even though I won't be playing with Pika/Jah in any upcoming GCD tournaments, there's still a pretty solid chance that I end up playing with them again for blizzcon depending how legion turns out and what comps are viable again, because Legion is likely to drop before the next Blizzcon, and the tournament itself will likely be in the next expansion.
