Hope they don't forget to buff pvp power healing for pure dps classes if they increase battle fatigue.

GW didint flop? its still an amazing game... but ppl expect it to be WOW, hence why the WOW players returned to WOW.

GW2 is just as perfect as it could be almost...its not wow why hate?

It took the devs 8 months to get things in the game promised for "shortly" after release.

The PvP was fun for a while, but 70% of the classes being able to almost one-shot others, and then other bunker builds taking hours to kill wasn't a sustainable PvP style.

I remember the time when I was trying to reach 1.850 rating to get t1 weapons, also remember the time when I was struggling to get 2.2k, those were the times when , at least for me, the rating mattered. Then blizzard decided the game is too hard for average player and started simplifying it to the point it become so easy and so forgiving that anyone can play it. In my opinion ,if you take away the possibility to distinguish yourself from others by being better player than them, than what is  the point of competing? You can introduce as many mounts and achievements you want, if you don't make them hard to get , they will NEVER be unique (if majority of players can obtain them that is). Thats why I think there were more people playing this game both pve and pvp-wise when it was hard to get certain rating or PVE content done, they were whining on forums sure, but they didn't quit playing because they all wanted the same thing "to be that guy". This is in the past now, and anyone can get gladiator now with a FOTM comp, bug(that takes 1 month for blizzard to fix),DDOS, win-trading or whatever. And its because of this lack of "uniqueness" that I think people quit the game once they reach their goal. Feel free to flame me if you disagree :)

spot on, the game had a driving force back then, now blizzard holds my hand throughout the entire leveling, gearing and beating pve content and pvping. It feels more like a theme park for small children than a adventure. Back in vanilla Blizzard tossed you into the big and nasty jungle and basically told you "survive".  People then had to look for help through other PLAYERS and not the GAME ITSELF. Blizzard did almost nothing to help out new or veteran players, and it was fantastic. Players back then almost always answered to "noob" questions, gave gold to people who were lvling becuase they KNOW what they are going through. I remember when I was a new player and asked a High Warlord guy in orgrimmar (who btw was surrounded by people that were inspecting him) and he could sit and talk to me and give me advice for hours. It feels like he was a hero, and deserved the attention.

Nowadays if a new player asks for help he gets called out for being retarded, and we can't really blame the players since the game itself has EVERYTHING you EVER need, without the social interactions. Everything from creating a character, to leveling, to gearing, Blizzard just holds your hand the whole way. Then we have LFR, that again, has absolutely no need for social interactions. You queue up (alone) and you play alone, even if you are in a group with 25 people. THAT'S what's killing the game, not the content itself.

Feel free to disagree or discuss, I'm more than happy to hear one another opinions.

#3918887 New Mage Mastery - 5.4

Seriously, STOP getting your panties in a bunch. Blizzard has literally stated that the double dipping with resil is a bug. They have also stated that they haven't done ANY number balancing yet on the PTR.

Why the fuck are you so upset about numbers at this point of testing? THEY AREN'T DONE YET. You should be giving feedback purely about mechanics at this point.

----

Speaking of the small portion of your post where you actually addressed mechanics, I can't really see that happening. If they added icicles on a different button it would fuck with the PVE rotation and the number balancing would be very difficult (to make the fire blast global worth it in PVE but not OP in PVP would be quite tricky).

I'm actually really looking forward to icicles on my mage, on ice lance. I love adding more sources of damage on my burst (procs etc), and shatter burst is definitely still going to be there. The newest change where they made the icicles launch every 0.5s is really nice. That should make them all land within the deep freeze or imp CS or poly window that you're bursting with.

And we're not allowed to discuss about if they implement this new dogshit mastery, it needs to hit more that soft summer wind?

Also, this is already going to affect PvE rotation massively, you just can't use FoF procs anymore whenever you want, you need to hold them until you got 5stack Icicle and potentially miss out on FoF procs.


#3914527 Haste Break point Question

Posted Sicktrix1 on 17 July 2013 - 10:22 AM

having the breakpoint at 12.51% haste for living bomb is the best you can get . next breakpoint requires like 40% haste or something unreachable.

i prefer mastery over haste after i have the breakpoint, but its basically preference haste and mastery are both good.
