In Topic: Ice Nova

21 November 2014 - 10:13 AM

I agree 100%. It's a horrible mechanic and doesn't fit WoD at all and it's also terribly boring to play.

It makes absolutely no sense that an aoe instant ability hits harder than anything else and even aoe stuns people (on poly dr).

Too bad i dont see them doing anything about the damage it deals for pve reasons, atleast not in a hotfix. But removing the stupid stun component or replacing it with a root could and should be done with a haste.

I agree. The way Mages have been steadily moving towards a more procs + instants playstyle (becoming Hunters, basically) is very disappointing to me.  Ice Nova is just the most egregious example.

I believe the proc playstyle is what makes frost a fun pve spec because if casted damage was always best you'd do nothing but cast frostbolt.

That being said they could move frost pvp playstyle more rewarding towards casted damage with the new setbonus system. For example fire setbonus in pvp makes you able to set up pyroblasts reliably with scorch casts making it less rng, which i believe differs from how you play fire in pve.

Ice nova unfortunately exactly fits their design goal for wod
While I agree the single nova would fit the cc reduction goal, this is just a really dumb way to implement it.

Instead of a second nova, you have the single most hard hitting ability tied into an aoe stun, labeled as a freeze. Probably the most braindead ability ever. Promotes yolobursting every minute with orb + ice nova + instant cast spam.

If it provided a small root instead and didnt have all our dmg tied into, maybe it could work. Getting casts through when it's needed should reward damage, not this kind of braindead aids.

Good post.

Stuff like interrupt game coming back is a huge plus, but i feel like there's still alot of really stupid stuff left in the game which i fear they are not going to fix before a big patch: stuff like burst of speed or ice nova dont fit the playstyle they're trying to push with WoD at all.

Overall excited for WoD though!
