#4574208 Nostalrius is gone.

Posted by Arteqt on 07 April 2016 - 05:09 PM

Nostalrius has been the best MMO I have played since WotLK. I don't think I can settle for any less after such experience. Rip my r13 warrior, it was worth it to the last pixel.

#4436777 What do you prefer?

Posted by Arteqt on 17 June 2015 - 12:52 AM

I believe most of the community, including me, prefers neither. Kills should require catching people offpositioned/setting switches etc. Not just training 1 or 3 targets to death. This feels more like a PvE damagemeters race atm.

#4425724 PvP concerns, Dmg/CC/Healing

Posted by Arteqt on 17 May 2015 - 10:40 PM

This looks like start but there are some other stuff this calculation doesn't take into account.

6.2 burst video looks like a good place to start to me. 100-0 burst takes between 3-12 seconds for all classes. Average is about 7. Now, since its 2xDPS a 100-0 burst takes 3.5 seconds for an average comp. It takes 1.5 second(s?) for the best burst comp. These numbers are less than a stun. Meaning if you don't have your trinket as a healer = you are dead.

Since most kills happen in a stun and CC 100-0 burst times should be adjusted to that. For example, no class should be able to 100-0 someone in less than 6 seconds(noDR stun duration). Since its 2xDPS bursting that should mean 12 seconds for a single class. If we take defensive CC and cooldowns into account; 100-0 should take 8-10 seconds minimum for any class.

All of the above implies;
- Burst and casual damage is closer to each other.
- Some defensives pruned

Also 8-10 seconds doesn't mean every class should be fixed to that time. Example: Affliction should have higher 100-0 time since the kill target is probably has less than %100hp.

ps. Main PvP concern should be removing Tanks and Double Healers from the Arenas.

Since the bots are gone I decided to give WoD another chance, then I queued into a double healer rogue.

#4396192 Klackspare rank 1 warrior. You need to see it !

Posted by Arteqt on 04 March 2015 - 01:35 PM

Every single kick bot I have seen so far does it before you even see your cast bar. This is a special case though. I didn't even know that you could pummel during charge.

As others suggesting it might be him spamming the wrong button. Some people use mouseover exist macros etc. Also, people using bots generally doesn't just stop with kick.

1st Reflect: UA 1 sec later he eats clone
2nd Reflect: Fear but he pressed it way before fear got off. You could fake that. If he was reflect botting, you definitely wouldn't even see the reflect buff.

He didn't interrupt druid clone. That might be because of random timing. However if his bot is random timing, how the fuck that timer matched to the milisecond of midway point.

I think it was just him fat fingering or another mistake. Cool scene to watch tho

#4392556 6.1 state of arena?

Posted by Arteqt on 25 February 2015 - 03:12 PM

Guys atleast wait for a week to see how it goes lol.

Mages were considered "shit" in the first 2 weeks. Then they become "gods".

We finally have an alternative to R.Druid = Shaman

Hunters/Ferals/Mages had insane damage buffs.

I can't wait to see how all these changes add up.

#4385408 The "are Warriors fine right now?" leaves me kind of perplexed,

Posted by Arteqt on 11 February 2015 - 06:41 AM

Any reason you didn't post this in general? You make excellent arguments but it just comes off as a Warrior circle jerk if u post it in a section where nobody will disagree.

Posting this on Priest forums would be the ballsiest thing ever but Lolflay would eat him alive.

#4384804 Killing Spree Nerf

Posted by Arteqt on 10 February 2015 - 04:35 AM

Why does combat need any compensation at all? Nerf that shit put of being viable for pvp, iys broken and promotes a retarded playstyle.

This game still has;
  • Tank specs in arena.
  • More than %50 of the classes have spammable offensive dispel.
  • An abomination called "Hunter" which is basicly a "melee" with 40 yard range.
However almost everybody decides that Rogues are the problem.

I don't remember any season where rogues have been "the problem". A handful of rogue players gets glad every season while the rest prays to get duelist or legendary weapons.

Rogue representation is ~3% and Warrior is ~10%.

Don't get me wrong I am not saying that combat isn't promoting "idiotic" playstyle. I'm just saying, Warrior/Hunter/Ret/DK is the same.

#4368587 Burst of Speed nerfed

Posted by Arteqt on 23 January 2015 - 02:47 PM

Let's do what every single rogue wants anyways. Nuke the tier, give SS baseline, and make that tier all about making SS more fun, engaging, and so on.

Hear me out.

Take away friendly target shadowstepping. Make that one of the tier talents (necessary for buffs). Add to the talent that if you do this, the CD is reduced by 5-10 seconds.

Another talent let's you SS while rooted, but you stay rooted.

Another can give two charges to SS, each on a 40 second CD.

Just spitballing here, but I do think most rogues would prefer this? And we would be rid of BoS mongos.

Every rogue I play with including myself wants to go shadowstep. It increases the number of cool stuff you can do A LOT, therefore making the class more fun.

I also want a Faerie Swarm nerf so rogues can actually play without BoS. Its just painful to watch a rogue trying to chase me when I am spamming Faerie Swarm in travel form.

#4368572 People whinging about Purge?

Posted by Arteqt on 23 January 2015 - 02:37 PM

I don't think anybody says "Delete purge and leave the damage as it is."

I think glyph of purge should be the default=> 6 sec CD 2x dispel

Also a buff to damage. Enhancement single target dps in PvE already needs a buff anyways.

#4368527 Healer representation in Arena

Posted by Arteqt on 23 January 2015 - 02:13 PM

Priest is total shit. You see an insane difference of "skill"(or whatever you call it) between a priest and r.druid at the same rating.

Possible solutions;

1-) Buff priest
2-) Slight buff to priest, slight nerf to druid
3-) Nerf druid to the ground so they can burn with priests.

Almost every priest chooses the 3rd option on AJ.
