I don't think PvE gear should overshadow pvp gear. I think they should add more diversity to pvp gear, like being able to buy pvp gear that sacrifices defense, and in return gives higher offense. To me it's a lot more fun when people run around in different gear.
I agree shadow priest healing is how all hybrid healing should be.
Offenders like enhancement shamans randomly throwing an instant 60k+ healing surge at no cost, except it being a gcd that isn't spent purging, is just disgusting.
Yes, mages would be fucked without ice block, and I don't think they should remove it.
So many specs right now are just disgusting to look at. Why are mages basically immune to stuns, while not taking any dmg from anything I do, when backed by a druid? Before you say "it's just the druid", it's not, it's the 2 classes together.
The game is so ridiculously comp based right now it's sickening. Some games I can jump around doing jack shit for 10minutes, then randomly win because "reasons". Other games are almost completely impossible to win, unless my opponent goes afk for 2 minutes in the middle of the game.
At the moment I honestly can barely tell the difference between a 2.4k rated RMD and a 2.9k rated RMD. I can be farming a 2.9k rated RMD 7-0, and then 1 hour later lose to 2.4k rated RMDs while not feeling any noticable difference in what I'm doing. Everything is unpeelable and instant.
Against every single mage+druid, I feel like I might as well go afk for the first 10 minutes, because there is no way that I can possibly hope to kill them before that. They tank my dmg, they tank my cc - but my cc doesn't last long enough to have any effect on them.
Or I just get cc'd forever, which I cannot do anything to stop. I lock 1 school, they cast a 2nd school of cc, I lock the 2nd school (because warlocks have 2 seperate cd Spell Locks, why??), and I get cc'd by the druid.
I thought they were supposed to reduce the CC in WoD? but it seems like mage/druid kept all their cc, while everyone else lost half of their arsenal.
I still love playing the game, but too many times I'm just left to think what a laughable state the game is in - where I can play unfathomably shit, and still somehow, sometimes that is better play than my opponent? Pathetic.
edit: I depise long games, and the playstyle of going for long games.
