Latest changes to our class in the latest build of the alpha. It sounds really cool that we have a ranged kick along with our pet but I can see people abusing bots that are out there to take advantage of this and make it hell for the casters out there
PHD is still the best thing we can play but you need a really good hunter to make it work as their survivability went down a lot and you're really put on a clock. which is why it's hard to do well with I'd figure.
TSG is playable to 2300+, I've played it to 2320 1 week ago and just got back up to 2300 playing it with a 2320+ish mmr. Acheilos is also another example of it working, but there are very obvious hard counters.
DK/ele was tried by me and I had a hard time playing it because it requires good ele / rdru synergy as well as good players of those classes (my druid has only played rdru since the a little after the season started), it revolves a lot around them. Ryndy also played it and they sucked when playing yet everyone in EU is playing it and doing well with it because they probably know how to play the comp effectively.
SCleave is viable to 2300+ as well as chimpoe and drizlet have proved it (drizlet queued tsg which is why he tanked)
DK/Mage was played by Philuminati over 2300 the other day but realistically i think it maxes out around there
DK/Enh has been played to 2300+ recently by slussh, he probably could've pushed higher but he had to go and the same 2 people queued with chimpoe and lost rating.
Anyone else notice that when you grip someone when they are right along the pillars on the corners they don't get gripped but it says immune, then trying to grip again it puts it on CD? Now this is with the glyph (no brainer to have since it's a minor) which makes sure that it doesn't go on cooldown if you aren't able to grip. I can see how gripping into a chillblains chains of ice is your fault and should get punished since you decided to do that.
What I don't get is when you're trying to grip someone with no roots on them on tiger's peak or tol'viron in the scenario mentioned earlier and it puts our best gap closer on cooldown because of it, you can only be a little annoyed.
