balance is not the main problem with arena

07 August 2015 - 01:17 AM

I think most of us here have had our expectations destroyed by blizzard one too many times to expect anything but mediocrity in this upcoming expansion (which is partially our fault but I’ll get to that in a second) but something needs to be said for the people that mistake separate PvP and PvE talents for better arena.  This might come as a shock to some people but WoW PvP has never been balanced and never will be, not during the golden age of Nahj’s season 8 RMP mirrors, certainly not during season 5’s unkillable juggernaut death knight saga and not even during the plethora of comp diversity that was season 15.  The main problem with this game is that over the course of years the adjustments to classes, specifically the pruning, have led to classes losing their uniqueness and complexity which ultimately led to the painfully scripted PvP we know today.

Arena was perfectly fine when only a few compositions were viable because each composition was strikingly unlike the other even when the difference was something as small as a healer variant.  Class distinction has been burned at the stake by the developers for more comp diversity and balance, which are frankly just red herrings that the community has cried for for too long.



TL;DR I challenge blizzard to make the game fun again, not balanced

is it class envy or class rivalry

arcane impressions (live)

24 October 2014 - 12:55 PM

in my opinion it is the hallmark of how all mages specs should be, where casted spells strongly trump the instants and is also a testament to how this dynamic would never work with the state of melee control (rogues and ferals i'm looking at you)

some observations:
-a powerhouse when left unchecked

-fast cast arcane missiles is great for baiting interrupts, building charges, and dealing damage

-nether tempest is actually a really useful talent when getting trained for generating quick arcane
missiles and does decent damage with 4 charges

-using nether tempest frees up frost nova and provides incentive to take ring over ice ward (since iceward and frost nova dr each other)

-pom ring is unique to the spec and obviously really strong

-cold snap resets pom not sure if this is intended but i'm not even mad

-arcane barrage is dogtrash and usually a waste of charges if u can continue shotin dem blasts (how icelance should be)

-never get locked out of frost tree so rarely die without blocking

-get kicked on arcane cant do anything so usually end up rage blocking

-i have no idea what causes this but your mana pool is endless (insert spellsteal spam)

-i don't see glyph of arcane power being good unless they make arcane power undispellable

-your mirror images build up arcane charges for themselves and end up doing wonkers damage (haven't tested someone told me this)
