<3 Ghostcrawler and the Devs
as I've said before, and will most likely say again.....if it's not broke, you can depend on Blizzard to fix it to death.
Another class balance talk and Subtlety is still boring to play in PvE. Combat love is appreciated, but not enough to counter the hurt from 5.0. Guess I have to keep waiting to come back -.-
Liking the Warrior changes a lot. I haven't used Prot much, but now I think i'll get back into it and give it a go.
Wow, dropping moonkin damage reduction from 15% to nothing? That seems like a fairly excessive nerf. Fairy Fire's duration is shortened to "make it less of a hard counter to stealthed players"? Isn't that the entire point of Fairy Fire in PvP? How about shortening the duration of Sap to make it less of a "hard counter" to everyone? Or better yet, leave well enough alone. Scaling Innervate to spirit so it "scales better with gear"? What? LOL Yeah, if you only want resto druids casting it. Why not just make it a resto exclusive, too, like Nature's Swiftness will now apparently be. Have fun playing your new "improved" boomy who is now super squishy and can't use that Nature's Swiftness + Healing Touch macro. /facepalm
"For Destruction, we changed Rain of Fire to not be so essential to the single-target rotation by reducing its Ember generation"Shouldn't you then, idk, increase the ember regeneration on Incinerate or Conflag to compensate! The whole point of using RoF was to gain the Embers our other spells weren't giving us. Thanks for the flat nerf on an already dps suffering class.
Although the change to Inquisition dumbs down the already quite simple ret rotation, it is somewhat welcome. I'd rather have it off the GCD with the current resource cost, though (10s of Inq per HP).While we don't have direct ret buffs (the change to Inquisition isn't direct, since we'll just be using 1 or 2 extra TVs and having a higher Inq uptime), I'm quite ok with this. A paladin who knows how to play his class is a force to be reckoned with, and getting too good attracts the attention of the Nerf Hammer.
True man! Boomys are the worst class/spec in pvp from 5 years. I played 300 arena games in this season and only 1 moonkin in 2v2, 90% arena teams with priests, mages, hunters......Gj blizzard, nerf moonkins more....just pathetic.
Nice to read. I was kinda dreading the hunter changes/nerfs, but the way GC writes it out here, it doesn't look that bad. And....less buttons isn't unwelcome either.
I really like the pictures for the classes - may I ask, where they are from?
Lots and lots of crit will help with your ember generation problem. I never use RoF single target
More changes for PvP, killing PvE. Hey Ghostcrawler, why don't you guys just do EVERYONE an favor, and separate PvE and PvP power, so it doesn't kill those of us who hate PvP. Set everything up like you do the different specs. That way, my Hunter doesn't SUCK when I am out in the world! (And yes, I do know how to play my Hunter).
Stop trying to make every character the same, so what if some are better than others, back in vanilla everyone knew mage was the best dps class of the game, did that stop people using other classes, no! Tanks did barely any dmg at all did that stop people rolling as a tank, no! pvp this, pvp that, blah blah pvp. pvper's should have a faction of there own but change there core racials to pvp spells, because i am starting to hate them like you would a normal opposing faction. pvpers remind me of the saying "do you even lift" because they think they are better players than pve'rs.
Those class emblems are pretty neat. Any ideas where they come from? Even better, anyone got a link to bigger versions? :D
....hey blizzard i stop PVP years ago.
