#4624762 Marksman Talents & Comps

Posted by Dagin on 17 January 2017 - 03:43 PM

disengage 2 charges baseline or master's call back for it to be competitive. We are not casters that can heal and have absorbs. ret, mw marks my top pick. The problem is melee is so mobile now and caster all can do so much spread dmg. Single target specs that marks brings aren't competitive. Piercing shot and wind burst takes like 500k together off a target I notice with vulnerable up.The more aoe spread spec doesnt do as much as the casters. Instead they are making the melee spec of a class that has always had 3 ranged ranged specs before this expansion the best spec and best mobility.

#3944127 My Dissapointment in Blizzard – Where is the spirit of Fair Play?

Posted by Dagin on 19 September 2013 - 09:43 PM

They can't even make arena balanced why would they try to be fair in the "spirit" of competition in an unbalanced mini game within a game?

#3924640 Racials in arena and rbgs.

Posted by Dagin on 09 August 2013 - 05:15 PM

So while there are plenty of things to look at in this game to make it balanced and more fun, racials seem like a topic that would be one of the easier to tackle. Now over the course of the meta game we call arena and with the introduction of rbgs rules, mechanics, arena/bg maps, and racials have been changed as the game progresses. New people come into play others leave the game for a number of reasons. Ideas that seemed good at one point down the line needed to be changed talent trees, glyphs, and the ways stats work to name a few. With racials not being usable in arenas or rbgs I feel like this would be step to help make balance easier.

So while the way arena and rbgs are played is very different, I will just talk about arenas for now. One of the current problems with arena at the moment is stacking damage and damage procs. Since I play an orc hunter I will use it as an example. Currently with an orc bm hunter you can stack engineering, orc racial, dmg increase from bw, two proc trinkets, scope proc, 4 piece bonus, pet buffs, and any buffs your teammates give you. Now granted I don't have access to a wow atm so I can't add up the damage mods all together. Other classes and specs can do the same thing, but it doesn't make it ok.

So you might be thinking why don't they just nerf certain abilities stacking and leave racials alone. Well it is not just dmg that is a problem, but racials that get you out of cc as well. Undead being a prime example. Lets pretend that Monks are the best melee in the game, remember pretending. So the undead monk has a trinket, wotf, and nimble brew? If you are a warlock trying to get him off of you or a teammate will be pointless. While I also don't agree with extra trinkets like nimble brew, bw, and desacrated ground. I'm prefectly fine with bubble and ice block because they give up a defensive to use it as a trinket if they wish. That is another topic all together, however.

I'm going to wrap this up now because I could give plenty more examples, but this is already turning into a tldr for some of you with attention spans of a first grader. If they just made racials unusable in arena. It would be much easier for them to attempt to balance the game. You would also see more races which would keep things fresh. Some of you will say racials keep things interresting, but taking less variables out of an equation makes it easier to solve. In this case the equation being balance.

This is just my quick thoughts on the matter. For another topic, I think they need to remove symb from druids and give them a different ability, or make it unusable in area. It would not be the first time a class' new ability for an expansion was usless in pvp.

#3921804 Warriors in 5.4

Posted by Dagin on 02 August 2013 - 05:54 PM

sry m8 but depending on how the mage mastery is and what they do to dem wizards all the melee + hunters are getting toned down. Rets bubbled that nerf bat and went immune.
This is how the season might go for you.

#3921483 S8 all over again

Posted by Dagin on 01 August 2013 - 09:32 PM

This is the prime example of why I no longer take people on AJ seriously.

Out of all the info I posted you picked the part where I made a typo, and instead of wyvern sting I typed serpent sting.

Since I am on the PTR and you're not (not referring specifically to you), I'm 10 times more qualified than anyone not playing on the PTR to judge the effectiveness of each class in 5.4.

I have made peace with the fact that there are some people that like me and and some people that don't. I am always here for those that want to lend their ear and listen to what a have to say, right or wrong, rude or polite.

So you can flame all you want, but once 5.4 hits live you will see the truth behind my words.

If I'm going to write a persuasive letter to someone showing them how I have done my homework and they are wrong I'm going to atleast know the names of the abilities I'm speaking about. I mean going from Wyrven sting to Serpent sting is way off especially if I'm trying to make a point. Some people just come in here spewing garbage and have no idea what abilities are called or what they specifically do or how they are set up.

Bottom line I don't think anyone can jude alll 11 classes and 33 specs from one ptr. You just can't and in terms of the "popular" specs and comps atm without having played said class at high ratings you really don't know what will be what. You can't just say that hunters do the same amount of dmg as they do on live when you have the kind of changes that have taken place drastic at that on the ptr as an example since I play the class as my main. I mean it would be silly for me to make assumptions about warrios right now.

The only info I have is from watching people on twitch and you moaning and bitching in every other thread. They have made the quality of life better for warriors no more shield requirements anyone can agree with that without having played a warrior. I cannot talk about dmg though even if I made one on ptr and set up keybinds and started hitting a target with full gear. That would make no sense. And even if I did some arenas against one that would be from a hunter point of view based off the comp I'm playing vs the comp the warrior is playing. Now were into all kinds of variables.

the only general assumption you can make is lsd will be the same or better given what new comps arise next patch. Eles getting a sligth nerf via 4piece. Locks moving while casting nerfed along with gate having a cd, druids being buffed over all. Those are the type of assumptions that are reasonable.

#3921250 Fuck off, wizard cleave and Blizzard

Posted by Dagin on 01 August 2013 - 03:19 PM

Way, way more balanced than any feral or hunter (read PHP, PHD, Jungle) based setup in the game. Besides, FPS/FMP, FLS, Ele/Feral/Disc, Ele/Rogue/Priest etc are very viable and good setups. I think LSD is only really good castercleave atm and even that gets shat on by melee/caster/healer.

It's funny cause after I got glad I remember by bias shrinking not blowing up must be different when you're a wizard or maybe it's a Euro thing.

#3920792 Fuck off, wizard cleave and Blizzard

Posted by Dagin on 31 July 2013 - 04:26 PM

When you're playing a comp that's a 8, and lose to players playing a comp that's a 9, you complain endlessly about how it's unwinnable for you.

TBH when he runs that 10 comp vs the 9 he gets called a mongloid. You can't win on aj cause everyone has something to say. I never understood people hating on someone for running the best comp they can. This game will never be balanced, roll with the punches. I think hunters are very good atm obviously but after i got my full gear I have not done any live play on my hunters. They are not fun to play. I rather play when its fun and bad than good but boring. Obviousy everyone wants fun and balanced or fun and op. This is a game remember, and why do people play games.

#3907360 So how about them ele shams

Posted by Dagin on 02 July 2013 - 05:23 PM

fuck off your class is ruining the whole expansion

That s9 title you sport was ruined by your warrior icon I don't get how some people just want to focus on one spec of one class and not the overall problems. Very well thought out post much like my first sentence I made. The op is merley stating how as a class people call out for nerfs but when a spec off a class is broken they seem to fly under the radar unless all the non hybrid dps specs are not absurd. I mean we are trying to go for balance right? But lets just insult someone for bringing to attention a spec that needs to be looked at after the fact that his class is recieveing nerfs. And as far as our class ruining the expansion bitch to blizzard you mongloid not the players They gave hunter lemons and we fucking made lemonade.
