Everything he said is sound and valid, except the part where all the damage is Ice Nova. 6.1 Frostbolt buffs, and 6.2 further Frostbolt buffs made Bolts do more than simply tickle the opponents, Mages actually hurt a bit outside of Novas atm.

Still not enough to kill people without Ice Nova and all the CC, but enough not to stand in their face 99% of time and tank the damage, completely ignoring them.

Agreed. Capstones point is on spot on.

Seriously all of the flaws with this expansion are in damage distribution being in shit like instant mindblasts and devouring plagues, ice novas/orb, 3x insta starsurge charges that hit 110k sach (ice nova 2.0)bw+crows, execute procs, sub rogues having pretty their damage allocated in eviscs only and getting little reward for backstabbing hemoing or ambushing etc.

You have no options other than to just spam get these ccs off because so much of that damage is only effectice in those ccs. In the past you had to do thinfs like pool focus or energy as your burst instead of waiting for just bm and crows with 5 stacks and not doing anything else until then... There was rotational damage you had to incorporate constantly on top of your ccs which is now gone.

So classes with spammable ccs like mages that used to have to set up shatter combos and also time their cc well to get pressure, lost those old shatter mechanics (which were also nice because even if they got the cc on your healer off, you could have the option of locking their frostbolt for the shatter, freedoming so you can't get novad so no shatter etc), and instead have their damage on these charges making your cc your best form of damage.

Do you guys not realized how fucked that is lol? It's not the control classes, it's how they decided to distribute damage for all these classes. Compare mage to hunter right now - mage has nothing better to do than spam sheep on dps till they can go for cc on the healer again with deep sheep, and bm hunters have nothing better to do than run around like a kenyan until crows is up again. Like sometimes it's best to not even auto attack as a bm hunter so your trinket isn't proccing outside of your bw crows.

That gameplay is okay if it's just an option that you can play that set up burst playstyle, but it's disgusting when it's the only option. Like holy fuck even looking at shadowpriests, it used to be rewarding if you got vt casts off, if you got that mindblast cast out, got mindflays, got mindspike casts out. You could shut down the shadowpriests damage or orb regen by hitting him but if he had peels, faked well, or you left him alone he could get out nasty pressure. Nowadays he does more or less the same damage just running around with feathers, instant mindblasting and offensive purging till the next godcomp 5 orb horror>hoj letting him dp 2x while the mage is deep sheeping every 30 seconds. You can't stop that orb regen or damage from them outside of stopping the mages deep sheep... What the fuck is with that design??? All the damage in this game is in the wrong place rofl, that's where issues come from - not the classes that have high cc.



#4451687 Remove mages from the game

Posted Capstone on 12 July 2015 - 03:26 PM

you spoiled moplords just don't remember how the game is supposed to operate, so you jump to the simplest, most shortsighted suggestion when it's actually everything else that's a problem with the mage class

if you didn't sit at your screen watching the clock timer on ice nova spin around twice for a minute, you wouldn't have to spam polymorph.  if frostbolt did reasonable amounts of damage, you couldn't spam polymorph, because you wouldn't do any damage.  if there weren't 5 million interrupts, you wouldn't have to go through 17 different stops before one goes off, and if the remainder of classes didn't have such ridiculous flavor abilities to avoid shit, you would only have to land one polymorph before you went and did other shit

but most of all, if the dispel system didn't get so fucked that you basically have to connect three polymorphs to land one, nobody would be spamming it in the first place

i can't blame hunters for not understanding anything other than a cooldown, though, since the only thing they know is running around and doing whatever they want from any position all the time

#4415427 Can anticipation compete with MfD?

Posted zenton on 26 April 2015 - 11:12 PM

View PostMalladon, on 26 April 2015 - 10:37 PM, said:

Sub would definitely be the spec to use it as it's where you're most prone to have "wasted" combo points and fastest overall generation, not to mention for keeping damage up 1 FoK is anywhere from 2-5 CP depending on the matchup and positioning.

If you're energy tapped trying to keep up rutpure/SnD then you're probably trying to mash hemo/BS too much on every global (especially if you don't have FW or a potential kill going). I might try this the next time I q sub...

I have to disagree. Sub's most advantage comes from being able to throw out immense cc, fast swaps, and off-stuns, like Shadowstep-Kidney. On top of these, you need to maintain SnD and Rupture. This means many many CPs and MFD is in short a free 5 cp every minute. Anticipation simply cannot compete with MFD in current Sub-meta play. Maybe Mutilate if it would have more energy regen (or not tied to Rupture).

#4406190 GD Activity is Depressing

Posted Dhorothy on 02 April 2015 - 11:00 AM

I miss the sense of community in this game, they've added all these easy features like dungeon finder, arena finder, que arena from interface etc etc, but in the end we just sit more alone and keep to ourselves. I enjoyed the good days of things like sitting at the que npc and not having flying mounts everywhere. Even if you didn't know the people around you, you still felt that sense of community. Now we just sit in our garrisons manhandling ourselves inbetween ques :/.

The activity on these forums is much like the interest and activity in the game's pvp scene these days:

At an all time low.

Its pretty sad indeed. Tbh I really dont even know what Blizzard could change about that.
There is literally no insentive to play PvP, you can only ladder against the same 5 comps over and over again.
They took away all the "challenging" skills from each class, making everything easy to play and taking away everything which could differentiate you from others.

In GW2 you can atleast unlock cools sets while playing, gain rank points, get cool finishers, cosmetic shit, thats what MMOs drive on. Cosmetic crap that makes you look good and gives you an epeen. WoW pvp doesnt have good gameplay nor does it have an epeen factor.


#4391622 Are a lot of people quiting?

nobody cares...  if you wanna quit just quit and do yourself a favor and never come back to wow or AJ.
The problem is, I don't WANT to quit, and neither do most of my friends who have stopped playing.

It's just that Blizz's incompetence is driving us all away. I log into WoW and have nothing to do because paladin PvP is agonizing and the game literally has no content outside of arena/raids. In MoP I had an incentive to PvE because blood coin farming was crazy fun and PvE gear gave me an edge there, and doing dailies and pet battles and LFR was a good way to relax after work.

WoD offers no such content, and my favorite activity - spamming arenas for hours with random people from trade - has been ruined alongside my class. These days I also play Heroes of the Storm beta, and while that game does have some OP heroes, those imbalances are nothing compared to facing a resto druid team as a holy paladin, and that pisses me off because it shows Blizz is actually has employees capable of delivering a balanced PvP experience, they just don't want to apply that to WoW.

So you see my problem here. I still like the game, I just hate this goddamn rushed unfinished expansion. Hell, I probably would've kept playing if 6.1 promised anything of value.

those random s8 killings as ele only worked vs bad players who got caught in the middle with little awareness
I mean I remember getting a lot of them as an ele shaman, but vs the great players, it basically never happened. Considering all s8 ele shaman damage was casted and I mean ALL (literally casted more than basically any caster), I would say it was fairly telegraphed with all randomness being attributed to lightning overload, which couldn't even proc lava burst in wrath. Wasn't that post cata ele bs where eles run around spamming instant lava bursts and win the lottery.
do u get an e-mail or something whenever s8 gets mentioned on aj :confused:
