#4395952 Looking for feedback from other Arena Junkies

Posted akatyrone on Yesterday, 12:02 AM

i was thinking about the game balance / fun subject when my friend had the bug where he had no frames in arena and couldnt use his 123 arena macros,

i think it would be interesting to remove arena targeting macros and only base targeting off regular target and focus target, nowadays any idiot can spam his arena 2 BLANK macro and cheese someone.

now digressing a little, arena was extremely fun and interesting in tbc in my opinion basically because everyone sucked at the game, nobody even knew what a pillar was until like 1850, people would stand in the middle of arena backpeddling to their deaths, and this was AWESOME. with the increasing amount of high level streams out there, anyone can watch twitch for a day and gain a wealth of knowledge about arena.

i enjoyed when the small secrets of wow were coveted like something as simple as cycloning someone at low hp, or using snake trap to eat an aoe ability like fear.

i remember a rogue on the isle of quel danas vanishing my deathcoil when i played a warlock, this blew my mind and i loved it.

you used to learn these little technical tricks from other faction players that you met doing dailies, or in elwynn/ironforge dueling, not from twitch, having the elite shoulders meant you were currently one of the best players at your class at the time. (ties into the rewards part of your post)

it could be a terrible idea and probly is, but i guess its thought provoking on how arena could be more interesting, imagine if arena targeting was removed and everyone had to set their focus manually and tab target etc, if Everyone had to do this the game would be new"ish"

even tho i do like the luxury of being able to use arena123 macros, i feel that if nobody could use them, the game would become just a littttttle bit more interesting.

just a little food for thought i guess i know its not the best single thing to improve this game, but something along these lines i imagine could actually save wow possibly.

#4388186 A suggestion on PW:S

Posted akatyrone on 16 February 2015 - 01:16 AM

#4382496 Tired of hoping for priest buffs

Posted akatyrone on 06 February 2015 - 11:45 PM

Blizzard's biggest problem is that they don't address the pvp community or have the proper tools to fully interact with their customers.

At the same time this is their greatest weapon, because people just "wait for them to fix it" instead of just unsubbing, i'm not completely sure if this is their "marketing scheme" or not, but its definitely working to their advantage.

A simple "oh yeah we noticed everyone's comments on how niggerish combat is, and we dont really care, were not fixing it" would suffice GREATLY... i wouldnt even be mad, just tell us what's going on.

"oh yeah hunter traps, the balance department was tasked to fix those this week, they are complete fucking retards so you may not see a change until around next friday... but be advised that its definitely in the works!"

#4379174 Literally one change that would up the fun in this game by tenfold

Do you shitty rivalduelists, like, honestly think the 1.5sec / 1sec GCD system is optimal for this game?

Right now it's simply a dumb skill-ceiling which 90% of the playerbase can reach in a short amount of time and one of the biggest blockers for any real competition in PvP and PvE. Dropping GCD increases skill-cap exponentially, if you are unable to understand this, please go post on MMO-Champion or some shit.

Disregard the numbers, I'd say dropping the GCD to roughly half of what it is now and rebalancing the game around that is precisely what Blizzard should do. Even if it takes a new expansion to implement.

calm down kid, your acne is showing.

#4378468 faerie swarm nerf?

So how does faerie swarm stop you from shadowstepping and stunning the druid?

because then the druid just displacers when the stun is over

doesn't really matter the personal achievements of who's saying it, it's obvious and objectively correct that wotlk was the best period of the game for both pvp and pve judging by the number of active players and fact that there were more tournaments than just an annual blizzcon

it also doesn't really matter because we're never going back to how the game was then or even coming close to it, have to deal with what we've got or just quit friends

wotlk was a great time, but ill never forget the soul that was embeded in wow during the tbc era, it'll probly go unmatched for a while

#4376606 Change to Gnome worth?

Posted akatyrone on 30 January 2015 - 12:56 AM

it seems like as a gnome im more approachable now to the female players in-game, usually im superseded by my reputation and my hefty amount of title/achievements, but when they inspect my character they can see i am just a down to earth person just like everyone else, no regrets man if you enjoy it, do it.

#4368227 Real 6.1 changes:

Posted akatyrone on 23 January 2015 - 06:08 AM


edit: i always enjoyed games that ended because the better healer used more efficient heals and got off solid drinks, instead of "auto-losing to a scripted pve encounter after a certain amount of time"

Tanking Specs
Tank specs are now no longer allowed to queue for 2v2, 3v3, and 5v5 arena


Concussive Shot: the cost of concussive shot has been increased to 50 focus, up from 0.

Reasoning: this will in turn eliminate the need to keep burst of speed in the game, and also requires the hunter to choose between doing damage and playing like an acne covered virgin

Frozen Arrow: removed

Freezing Trap: Revert the arm time of trap so they can be eaten more consistently, poly can be kicked/stunned/silenced/gripped/gouged how do you stop yolo traps on a consistent human level? You cannot and this needs to change.


Burst of Speed: removed

Killing Spree: you can now be cc'd while Killing Spree is active

Improved Shadowstep: if used to step to a friendly the cooldown is reduced


Silence: removed from disc

Spectral Guise: removed

Angelic Feather removed

Inner focus: baseline for holy and disc, gives strength of soul buff 45 sec cd

Shadow word: Death: now available for holy and disc, this abiltiy also does damage back to the caster equal to 20% of the damage done

Psychic Scream: the cooldown has been reverted back to 27 seconds for all specs

Prayer of mending: now instant cast again

Renew: now available for disc

Mana Burn: reintroduced to all priest specs

Power Word: Shield: gives the priest freedom for 5 seconds


Forbearance: now lasts 1 minute, up from 30 seconds


Displacer Beast: removed


Frenzied Regeneration: this ability is actually retarded op

Faerie Swarm: slow removed, possibly make typhoon baseline or something


Living Bomb: now available for frost, fire, and arcane specs

Arcane Explosion: now available for frost, fire, and arcane specs

Blizzard: now available for frost, fire, and arcane specs

Ice nova: no longer stuns, no longer dr's with sheep

Blazing Speed: choose this or alter time


Resummon pet > Command Demon: if when you summon your new pet and your old command demon was on cooldown it increases the cooldown of your next Command Demon by 1 minute, basically you are taking out a loan on an interupt from the future, instead of the old buy 1 get 1 deal

Unstable Affliction: no longer always deals critical damage when dispelled

Demonology: considered a tank spec and no longer allowed in arena

Imp Dispel: you sacrifice 100% of your hp empowering your demon to dispel all magic effects from your target

Fear: Now breaks immediately from any instant damage, a few dots will not break the effect

i am still salty about this class, someone else will have to balance it


Tweak damage and healing (lower)

dark sim affects all abilities?

Death Stike: now removes all of your damage over time effects from your target and converts them into healing


Executed live on stream

Future Patches

blizzard discusses with its community what needs to change for pvp on a weekly basis, when and IF they plan to change things at all

Interupts Removed

Skull Bash
Counter Shot
Spear Hand Strike (mistweaver)----------------------------------------------------------------to be continued
