Arms is far from finished, but still, the current design is God awful.


start by removing cs and going from there please

Why is no one crying for charge

I played alpha for a couple of days and we also did a lot of war games (mostly WLD vs RMP, WD vs RM,  WD vs MP). The charge change fits the other mobility changes. Personally I played with 20 sec charge and it absolutely did not feel bad. In Wotlk or TBC we had to play with charge + intercept. Now we have charge and heroic leap which gives us similar mobility, if you add storm bolt to it we actually have similar range control, too. It really doesn't feel bad and with less instants in the game, it doesn't hurt the overall performance at all if you have to walk for 4-5 yards instead. The only thing that hurts is when you waste your gap closer but who would waste it? ;-)

About the CS change: Unless you're a tank, you only have 3% parry. All dodge is gone except evasion but due to the lack of overpower, evasion is finally a cooldown. So basically unless you're lacking awareness and CS into die by the sword / evasion, you're pretty much sure it'll land.

Gladiatorstance is more of a fun thing. I did a few duels vs tanks and it's not impossible to beat them. Gladiatorstance is more about being a viable dps in your raid (the dps actually looks decent, about 70-85% of a pure dps). Sure it takes a bit longer to kill a tank in gladiatorstance than it does to kill an arms warrior but keep in mind that second wind is basically gone, i.e. you don't have to worry to kill through it.

If you wonder about self healing: enraged regen looks very good atm. 2nd wind converts dmg to healing but the problem is.. you have to do dmg, so it's not viable against range classes or if you're stuck in a stun. Same with impending victory. The 20% healing done by enraged regen feel good now that battle fatigue is gone in WoD. :-)

About the stancedance thingy: I like that it's back. Last time I played it wasn't live yet but from what I've seen it won't hurt you. The game already felt very smooth but something was missing. I think stance dancing will fit into the "new/old warrior" thing they're trying to build.

The new mastery looks very good and is a lot more fun to play. No more small hits. I really like the idea of having a few big hitting abilities, after all we're using a 2handed weapon and not two 1handed swords. :-)

I played warrior (arms and prot), priest (all three specs). mage (fire) and rogue on alpha. I have to say that warrior is in a fairly decent spot. It's not a mindless class at all on alpha. Sure you lose some of your abilities but because you lost some, you actually have to think about whether you want to use (or waste) your other cds. less defensive/offensive cds makes for a much cleaner gameplay and you know that as soon as you managed to get a major defensive cd w/o using your offensive cds, the enemy will be in trouble. It's not like today "oh i forced parry nvm he still has wall". It feels much cleaner.

One last thing about the stance dancing: I think we have to "d up" again if we expect burst or stun / cc on us. We can't use rallying cry in bstance so having a good understanding of the current state of the arena game will be crucial. Are we offensive? Are we defensive? Am I on stun dr? It's not viable to sit in dstance all the time, you'll sacrifice too much dmg.

Looks like they're trying to go back to stance requirement and attacks requiring rage

but they still havent reverted rage gen, the fuck?

#4139375 WOD: Why would they want prots to be viable?

i personally like the idea of tank specs being viable - a ton of other games have it i just think blizzard is going about it wrong.

they try to give prots a little too much of everything and at that point nobody is having a good time except for the prot and his team
because when you give a prot the ability to run into combat and have every single utility available to that class you run into issues where they do too much damage - heal way too much and dont take enough damage to off set what they are doing

if they are going to make prot viable then it needs to be worked into the mechanics that they have set up for games like heroes - where prots become SUPPORT

i honestly miss the days where you had support classes in wow - now it seems as if everything can do everything which wasn't the case back in the day

if they allowed prots into arena but made them so you were facing a player rather than a raid boss from a new xpac where you dont have the ability to kill him then i say screw it let the prots in

but IF and ONLY IF they do it right and not make it so the prot is completely unkillable and you look at a team like oh they have XX and a prot - just CC the prot all day - i hated that mechanic - everything should be a kill target nothing should be chalked up to "shit thats a demi-god we should just ignore him all game"

I miss support classes too. I remember when enhancement shamans just made everything else do a fuck load more damage with relatively low damage compared to other classes.

I remember playing turbo cleave in season 8 and doing like 1/3rd of my warriors damage. Now enhance has arguable the highest dmg in the game in a short period. Bring back class diversity 2014.

dat feel when you come back to the game and pay 60 dollars to level up an enhancement shaman, queue up a game of 2v2, get killed in less than a global by a warrior and hunter only to have them whisper:

"get shit on ddosing faggot"

because a dude who literally named himself after you has somehow surpassed your legend


the feels

Well, not sure if this shaman is Kaska but he's in Kaskas guild, add him to your dodge list. I'm proxied but often I play with people who aren't, unfortunately people ddos at this low of mmr, playing HLS. Sad. Really sucks when you just want to play the game but cant queue up cause people can't play fairly.

hello, i'm here to give you some valuable information and advice about ddos

first of all, the accusations are unnecessary. whether or not the shaman is in kaska's guild isn't much evidence. the other two people are, of course, suspect.

the first being senorsquid, who will readily admit if you ask him that he hits people. he was behind the season 12 fiasco where hype's (and i believe dhorothy's) entire university's network went offline, which protected kaska's rank 1 by a hair (and i'm the rank 2 recipient). he bragged about it to people i knew then, and he bragged about it to me again a couple weeks ago. allegedly, the deal was kaska would play with him if he hit some people. i think kaska played with him and they received gladiator the following season

the second is obviously reedz, who is apparently not admitting he's not above hitting people anymore. it was only a few seasons ago he made a recruitment post on arenajunkies asking for players detailing that he preferred ones with large cannons. if a moderator has access to said logs, they could verify

so to settle the debate in the thread, yes, you got hit. so what? ddos happens every day to dozens of people on this site. if we had a thread for everytime someone got ddosed it'd span the entire length of the general forums. i got sniped & hit by moran two days ago in 5s and they all ran in and popped all their cds instantly, but iaintevenmad.jpg and i wasn't mad at the aforementioned people in season 12 because ddos over titles is irrelevant. after a few years of playing this game, the value of the titles will become meaningless to you, and if your beef is with losing your intellectual property, you can't get mad at senorsquid either - he's in high school using his parent's resources, if he doesn't ddos you, someone else will. your beef is with blizzard, or skype, or arenajunkies if it's really important to you that reedz gets banned or something

but if we banned quality contributors like reedz and moran everytime they hit somebody the leading cause of contracted aids would be this website so just proxy and queue up again. have fun playing the game, and if you can't deal with ddos being a legitimate concern, quit

my condolences for your router

Since DDoSing is technically illegal, wouldn't it be funny as shit if a bunch of the WoW ddos'ers went to jail for like 10 years.

Like, Kaska's partners:

"Yo man, where has Kaska been, I want to play some 3s."

"Oh, you didn't hear? Serving 10 years for cyber crime."

i think DDoS is the "Rape" of WoW - like a few years ago when someone said they were raped people would actually care and think it was legit but then feminists came along and invented stare rape and whatnot. Same with DDoS, u guys make every DC a ddos and that trivializes it in the end noone believes anyone anymore

Reedz just plays 5v5 on bongwater bgs and uses his fake titles to try and act elitist in a game nobody plays anymore. So yeah hes one of those guys who trys to act nonchalant about ddosing and rating but he actually cares, a lot
