#4363816 How are you dk mains still playing this class?

Posted Ownu on 18 January 2015 - 09:35 PM

To OP: I play my warrior more than I play my dk these days :\

The longer Dks have exist, the more they have been stripped of their ability to provide support for their team

such an edgy hipster..ooh look at me im criticising my own class

only rogues complaining about combat are ones who cant adapt to the playstyle. watch generic stream he plays it very well

Adapt to what playstyle? You mean endlessly run at healers all game like a necrotic spamming mop dk?

So conversion, which is generally considered worse than death pact (depending on what you're playing against), gets nerfed in 3s because of 2s? Couldnt they just make it effected by battle fatigue or like, not give a shit about 2s? This is stupid.


#4334121 Is it just me orrrr

Posted Ownu on 06 January 2015 - 12:51 AM

It's not like DKS can't find teams, but it is true that there is always a better melee class with a higher potential skillcap than dk. There has not been a time where dk was the #1 melee since lolseason5


#4332876 So, where are the Forum Admins?

doesnt getting tabards and stuff like that from twos defeat the point of the concept? Good to know I cant take anyone I see with a tabard seriously now :|

Yes, but is this because ret would work better, or just that PHD itself is actually bad. I don't really see what would make rets own PHD. I know ret hunter X is probably better, but is PHD still good.

its because ret teams counter PHD very very very hard. The higher chance you have of queuing into a ret team, the harder each game is going to be, meaning it will be harder to go up in rating.
PHD must take advantage of early pressure in order to win games. You cannot sit back and wait for the opposing team to throw out their pressure, then counteract it. PHD does not have the kind of burst Ret hunter or jungle cleave has. Early pressure MUST be established in order to maintain tempo throughout the match.
PHD has very little amounts of CC. It takes advantage of a five second stun and a trap, in combination with a lot of damage in order to get trinkets/defensives out of the enemy team. When ret teams come into play, you are pretty much unable to cross CC a ret with the amount of damage coming out of them; allowing them to free (or trinket for it to stop early pressure) bop the first stun, preventing a trap, sac the first trap [that lands] after the second stun sits, trinket the third stun stun, sac the second trap that lands, and forbarance is off by this time allowing the ret to bop the following stun. No pressure can be established all game when a ret plays properly. Cross CC is required, which is very hard to do to a ret right now in the first place.

Additionally, to a lesser extent, PHD is bad everytime ferals are good, mainly because in just about any patch, ferals destroy hunters while DKs cant peel for them. PHD is just not strong against melee cleaves. PHDs cant really go healers because of the Dk mobility issue, and generally melee cleaves go healers. Dks cant peel for their healers, and hunter CC is dispellable meaning it is very hard to peel things like TSG, Rogue/Dk, Ret melee cleaves, Jungle cleave is basically unpeelable to anyone but other classes can at least get them off of you for a short time while Dks cant do anything.

PHD has never hardcountered anything, but its strength has usually against melee+ranged setups, where it preforms the best. Double caster is typically an uphill battle, but has never been impossible. Melee cleaves and healer tunneling cleaves have always "felt" impossible for PHD to beat.

Dk's in the state we are can't be complained about.

Our damage is more than making up for the absorb, whereas it was delayed damage before.

Lets just be happy that our class is in a better shape than it has been in years.

I dont think unholy single target makes up for the absorb

Thank god it is gone. That abomination single handedly held the class back from getting anything worth having.

#4314189 What's wrong with this picture?

Posted Ownu on 23 December 2014 - 04:43 PM

Its actually baffling that people are bitching about conversion of all things. Have you seen ret/feral healing?


#4307760 Best for RDruid/DK/X

Posted Ownu on 19 December 2014 - 08:11 PM

Even though it's good, cleaving with a rdruid is incredibly frustrating as a dk. You literally feel like arthas chasing the 5 man party down in the 3rd five man ICC instance. Slowed. For literally ever.


#4293066 So the DK nerfs have *FINALLY* been applied.

Posted Ownu on 11 December 2014 - 12:57 AM

I don't think DKS need a nerf. I actually think they're pretty over rated. For some reason when DKS are on par with other classes, people think they're overpowered. It's not really the story this time, since other damage dealing class's easily keep up or pass DKS in damage now, and all of these classes bring a ton of utility - that which dk does not.

Not saying they're bad, simply saying they're not as strong as the community perceives them to be when lined up next to other classes.

Still seems like; why play with a dk when you can play with a Ret?

I play Arms.
That's my story in a nutshell.

I'm considering to play with a Disc or Rsham, without offensive dispels things just don't die or keep running away because melee is an outdated concept.
Oh, and next time someone will come out saying that Warriors have good mobility I'll kill a kitten. We may have the most effective gapclosers in the game, but spammable sprints, immunity to slows and roots or freedoms in general and the possibility to nullify Charge or Leap (which is pretty damn unreliable) amount for way more than anything we can do.
HL sprint removal really hurt us.

That being said, it may be due to how I'm used to play Arms more than Glad/Prot, but I feel that much more durable. It's just that I can't seem to put a dent in anything without cooldowns.

Ran mostly 2s myself, teammates froze due to Draenor not floating their boat a week ago.

But I like kittens :(

I'd say crit. Multistrike wont benefit from killing machine. Crit > haste or Crit > mastery
