I'm happy to see MM Hunters getting a buff. I'm really having a blast leveling my goblin and I was starting to worry that I'd have to learn to play SV.
"Retribution, Shadow, and Fire and Frost mage damage might be too low, but we’re still watching them"PLEASE I cannot do as much damage on my pally to npcs as I used to and it's making me want to just work on other toons >.>
I have never really commented much cause i felt like what i had to say had allready said it before me but no one has said so much about this so i will compose a rant now."Retribution, Shadow, and Fire and Frost mage damage might be too low, but we’re still watching them."Ret damage IS way to low, there's no question about it. the only reason you are still "watching" them is because everyone rerolled as soon as they looked at recoung or was done levling. i myself have been playing a ret paladin for over 1 year now and i have never seen anything like this. our dps is outright $%^&ed atm. sometimes we get a lucky procc and our dps is "normal" and close to the other classes. but that's like winning the god damn lottery, or waiting for that solar eclipe that comes every 200 years.also. this might go under the "We’re keeping a close eye on dispels. We still like the design of making dispels more of a commitment rather than liberally sprinkling around dispel resistance or consequences for every class. Defensive dispels (removing a debuff) generally feel good, but we think offensive dispels (removing an enemy buff) feel too powerful, especially for DPS specs. In particular, Purge and Spellsteal will probably get nerfed.We’re also looking at crowd control, interrupts, and self-healing in PvP. It’s possible we’ll reduce the durations of some crowd control effects, especially the area effect ones, and decrease the duration of interrupts."but ret paladin is pretty much useless in pvp too, its like when a mage is pvping a warrior 10 levels below him. that's how paladin is.if you duel a mage you MIGHT be able to come close to him and hit him 2 times if you are lucky, but then again the stars in your holy power bar might not allign and you will do no damage at all.as RETpaladins are now we are basically useless in every form and way. we might be good in pvp and arena as a support healer. But then again, why would i want to be a support healer when i can just specc into holy and get better healing there.I feel like the specc have been rushed upon completion and is unpolished./end rant
IMO, they are changing the classes to much to often. Thats why there always are some classes that have problems and others that are overpowered. I guess they intend to make the classes more interesting and fun to play. But its not worth it I think. Doing that means they will always have more balance problems than necessary. And some ideas will not work and they will need to change some classes in a major way again. Its not good for the game. Keep the classes as they are and just balance the talents, spells and abilitys they have. Small changes. No redesign and revamps of the classes.
He did say this was not the be all end all final list it was just a preliminary list and yet people arestill qqing that he didn't mention (insert class spec)'s issues. Omg why not wait till the patch notes go live before acting like 2 year olds who got their juice box bullied away from them.
I was pretty happy about the changes, I mean, we all expected Dual Wield Unholy to get nerfed into the ground, and finally Mastery looks not only good, but pretty damn awesome for us (Nothing on blood though. Not that their was any real problems except my retarded survivability in PvP until I get my resilience set :P). Then....
Everybody is complaining about PvP, and I have played as most all classes and servers, and factions. I suppose some individual things need help, but they obviously just need to buff the alliance as a whole, say a +5% everything. that would make up for their lack of teamwork. then again, my highest toon is still 82, I am taking things really slow. at 82 I am 3 hitting things, always. and I do not use all my cooldowns. I also tank regulars, and from a tank view, again, the problem is at least the alliance, I do not have a horde tank, have problems working with other people. this is a multi-player game, and I do not want to hear people complain that they cannot solo things that are for 5 players. learn to work together as a team, and get along, then complain about what doesn't work when you do.
Here's hoping for a look over some of the other racials. I play a tauren, and ever since the heath increase nerf, no combat changes have been made (aside from the nature resist changes in line with the other racials). In particular, taurens along with about 1/2 the other races need some kind of useful pve racial.
