#4625593 Shadow even worth playing?

Posted by TheFreedomSong on 23 January 2017 - 04:59 PM

No utility???? Mass dispell / Mind Controll / Purge / Silence / Fear (or stun) / Healling reduction (ok they fucked this up a bit). However I think we do need some damage buff. Not sure if that should be on our dots, or on Mind Blast so we can play shadow insight, but they need to give us the ability to put a bit more pressure outside of Power Infusion.


Alright, you got me there. They have the utility, I stand corrected. Damage isn't there.



Correction - you're shite. Even when Shadow was god tier you failed to accomplish much with it. Don't project your poor experience of the class on other people.


Anyway we're not fucking awful, it's just being a caster is generally really, really shit right now. We only have a few viable comps and because of the meta Shadow is simply not an enjoyable playstyle. We're good, but the meta is bad for us; RPS and Godcomp are still exceptionally good comps for Shadow, as is playing with a WW monk (good synergy). Shadowcleave is also looking better right now. Personally if I had to push I'd probably do it as Disc atm instead of Shadow just because being cleaved down over and over is really, really not enjoyable - even when you win. But this is a subjective perception of the class and it's likely you tanked because you were carried by the pre-nerf damage as opposed to actually belonging at that level of play, that is -usually- what happens (I remember when we all thought Assassination was going to be free glad for rogues last season, couple of nerfs later and all but the top rogues tanked the fuck.)


This is my second season playing spriest as I mained warrior for 6 years. WW Monk is good but they have better comps to play with. Shadowcleave is awful now because of the Spriest nerfs. I'm not sure we're playing on the same patch here or if you're even playing Legion currently. I was never a glad player but when you see top players not queuing anymore cause classes like Ele Sham is more viable, doing more damage, and has more compositions, it's a clear sign. And it's harder to find teammates on Alliance, and I'm focusing on PVE this expansion because PVP this expansion isn't fun. And all the top rogues last season didn't tank because they were already playing Subtlety over Assassination, at least in the US anyway, and those who mained Assassination stopped queuing.

Zunniyaki getting tunneled 99% of the match against Joefernandez TSG, stays at 30-40% the entire match until he dies. Gets swapped with rogue, they win the set.

not sure if srs

Not the lowest but the pve community is up in arms. They dislike the fact that Surrender to Madness is the only viable talent and that all the talents in the talent tree are all revolving around that ability, that can only be used for 3 minutes then you die. Legacy of the Void and Mindspike are garbage and completely unviable. Legacy can be used in Mythics because fights don't last long, but is absolute garbage in raids. They don't like that StM is grossly overpowered for 2 1/2 minutes of a fight and then you die, then be complete garbage for the rest of the mythic/raid.

Most of the pve community wants it reworked or removed entirely while wanting bigger buffs to the other talents to give them more viability and talent choice control. It's fun to use at first but having more eye opening negative side effects like being forced to be mediocre dps for 10 mins when it's on cd, one misclick on your rotation and you're dead, the other talents are shit. It's a double edged sword that people aren't happy about.
