So basically, the PTR has a bunch of bugs right now (as is the nature of beta builds), and people are freaking out on the forums.And Hammer of Wrath might get nerfed, and people are freaking out because they thing "might" means "will." People...
Eh, if they need to look at a way to adjust Paladin damage then Hammer would be a great way to adjust ret without messing up prot or holy.
I just wish they would get the hunter figured out. I don't feel that the Nerfs and Buffs are out of line. However, everytime anew update happens on the PTR it messes what I think will be my new spec.yes I realize this is how PTR works and I am not complaining... as much as wish it was over with...
Nice to know that 2 handed Unholy DK's get some love *goesbacktohisdk* "I still love you man!"
Wtb looksies at the new arch. content. Priests are getting a superbuff? With the double range, it should heal for 80-120% more, depending on the fight and how spread out everyone has to be. Looks shiny. If I recall correctly, the world first of Cho'gall had 5 priests in the raid. imagine how much easier it would be if 3-4 of them were holy.
Biggest problem they have with a nerf to Hammer of Wrath from a PVE perspective is that it is meant to be highest priority when using Wings or target is below 20%. If it drops too far below other skills it will just get dropped out of use. Oh the fun they must be having trying to balance ret abilities.
Fix the prisoner escape daily quest in Tol Barad!
I don't think the nerf would affect us that bad, but i still don't want it. What I am surprised for is how they ignored retribution talent tree. My level 85 Ret pally alt feels like my warlock, he is just so squishy, and I hate it. The ret pallies take damage to easily and their moves are just terrible. I mean my god it has made most people including myself to actually go into a protection talent tree and set it up just right so now I dps in a tanking spec. Yes i still use a sheild and a 1h weapon but thats fine seeing how much my damage increased. I feel like the Ret pallidens need a complete overhall just to make all the dps pallies go back to the dps spec. Blizzard is ignoring a huge flaw in one of the most popular classes
I agree, Ret spec needs to be fixed asap. Its pretty pathetic to see how Blizz pretends there's no problem with it and then say we think HoW may be hitting to hard so we might have to nerf it. Are you f'ing serious? Please Blizz, spend some real time testing out Ret spec and listen to your paying customers because I love Ret spec but if somethings not done soon, I'm dropping it for Prot/Holy instead of my current Ret/Prot
In grey theory Paladins are actually the worst DPS class of them all (because they cannot switch to another DD spec that hits sweet), so at the end of the show they will have no choice but do something about it. And I believe they do. When they say; "There's no changes planned right now, but Hammer of Wrath does hit for a lot..." then I read it not the way that they plan NO CHANGES at all, as in retrospective to previous PTR 4.0.6 notes, but rather no planned changes to HoW, which does not necessarily mean they don't do anything else about the Paladin. As far as the patchnotes go, they do, or is that yet not enough? I am yet uncertain how these changes will feel live :\\As for Archaeology; if there would be lvl 85 Agi-based weaponry (especially twohanded, for Feral Druids and Hunters), I would be much more inclined to fly around Azeroth and dig out remnants of the past. That aaaaaaaand... when the recipe for Vial of The Sands becomes BoA since I do not understand why I should level Archaeology twice, when my main is not an Alchemist...
How very interesting indeed...As for Archaeology; if there would be lvl 85 Agi-based weaponry (especially twohanded, for Feral Druids and Hunters), I would be much more inclined to fly around Azeroth and dig out remnants of the past. That aaaaaaaand... when the recipe for Vial of The Sands becomes BoA since I do not understand why I should level Archaeology twice, when my main is not an Alchemist...Just make anything you dig up BoA and the problem is solved, to be honest.
Yup, agreed. This makes one not snarl in anger when receiving duplicates of mounts and minipets you actually cannot pass along to your other characters.
