That's the kind of mentality that blows me away. That mentality brought us to the point of "homogenise this or gtfo" design.

Mentality of what?

All I did was state that my preference as a Warrior was to fight Locks over Mages and then explained why.

I'm not complaining about having no root breaker, separate Reflects, Heroic Throw silence or Disrupting Shout to help counter Mages. I'm happy that all of those are gone.

I would say Frostjaw needs to be removed and possibly Ice Nova to not root.

Wls is the most disgusting comp I've seen in a long time.

#4447952 Idea for versa offpieces

Posted Creamo on 06 July 2015 - 05:26 AM

Why not use arena/rbg rating as a gate for versa offpieces on the vendor? You can even keep the stupid rng system to shut the casuals up, but let the people who care to push rating have something aside from transmog gear to look forward to?

I don't think wotlk system is the best way to gate this particular season, since not every spec/class has the same bis pieces... but for future seasons this might be a good way to go. Make shoulders the best piece like they used to be, and gate them at 2k. Everyone gets transmog gear at 2k anyway, but a bis piece would make more people (I know I'd give a fuck again) actually want to log on and que.

And you guys want people to log on and que right? Even if the super special ashran vendor is only 1800 required to unlock, it ought to make for a healthier game.

Just an idea, assuming Blizz still cares about us non-raider types.

Tell me how bad my idea is, how bad I am, how gay I am, etc.

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.

#4449128 Why do PVP Trinkets even exist?

Posted Soraven on 08 July 2015 - 03:10 AM

I mean honest, this is the most simple 1st rule in PVP to begin with.

No one and I mean no one at high rating would ever PVP without a trinket, its the same as auto attack, should be baseline ability for all characters to begin with.

That solve the "HUMAN OP" Racial QQing and finally use some logic.

Not to mention the feel of forcing you to use PVP trinket to begin with if your not human, stupid and boring.

I really can't see any downside for doing it, to anyone, to any race and specially for balance.

I tanked on the last day and still got glad as well. Well I guess they really are cracking down on botters and boosts this season, which is nice for a change.
