Guys! Please Remember these are Alpha notes so most of them may not make the cut and is subjected to change! :D I am intrigued by thenew Mw healing stance but the question is how will the mana regen work on it and such! Anyways it looks amazing in some areas. The heals im a bit iffy about and Alter time being a lvl 30 mage talent... And i would like to say if this makes the cut RIP SYmbiosis and Void shift.... You shall be missed dearly
Second Wind no longer directly heals the Warrior while active. Instead, Second Wind grants the Warrior 10% Leech while active, which causes the Warrior to heal for 10% of all damage and healing done by the Warrior while active.OMG YES YES YEEEES! >:)
sooo Arcane Shot is taken away from MM hunters that is 90% of my dmg.. GREAT if these changes come into the game im calling it millions of people will quit wow
But...but I *need* evocation as a fire mage. That's my heal. My *only* heal. And on that note, I need Arcane Explosion too. For quick AOE. I need that. What are you replacing these with?
Hate the change to Warrior's Second wind.. of course the one good way for us to heal and they have to f**kin nerf that..I swear they hate warriors
Holy crap. I'm only gonna read half of this for now...
They better be %^&*ing kidding about that. Not cool, Blizz, not cool.
Wow. So many changes, going to be playing a new game.I LOVE the attention to button bloat. It has gotten pretty ridiculous and I am glad to see a lot of those hunter buttons go away. I was a bit taken aback by the vast number of pet abilities going away, but realistically used very few of them anyway.With all the massive changes in mechanics and base stats the only way to see how all this comes together will be to play.And as always, lots of things are going to get tweaked between now and then so no point in getting all dehydrated by starting to boo-hoo this early!Going off to get my name in the pot for the beta!
I am going to take a wild guess that this is their most extreme version of what they talked about doing and they will gradually put one or two abilities per spec back into the game.To me, it really doesn´t look that bad. There are a lot of signature abilites getting removed, but most of them had become brainless stuff anyway. Stuff like hunter´s mark, which was automatically applied, never fell of and gave a flat increase to all your abilties. Yes, it is a signature spell, but it was meaningless int he context of making your spec interesting.I have a 90 of every class, and for me, the only negative one I saw was the Disc is losing renew. which is somethign I did on every boss pull right before I started atonement dpsing the boss!
It's just an Alpha, people... I'm 100% sure we will get some new spells, and some new talent changes... Wait for the Beta at least.
this stinks of DDFC - dumbed down for consolei had quit WoW till WoD released - seems it may be longer
Whiners, grow up. Nobody even tried the game yet and you are all panicking. You are all judging the game from a wall of text instead from your own experience...
From the looks of it MW monks have been kicked so hard in their green balls it will take half the expac to get a hint of where they are.
So the removal of THAT much CC (including disarms) , or retuning if you wish; The game is gonna revolve around nothing but damage, you can't stop the damage unless you use your stun for it. This needs more rethinking.
dman i was so happy by seeing the pre warlords talent calculator of warrior getting the new abilities...but now they edited & changed it to another new abilities...now they nerfed the warrior again...especially by swapping storm bolt with bladestorm...now thats 1 stuped decision...damnit...why so much hate for warriors
They are really moving the "interact with your fellow players" even more by making you gain glyphs, when you level up :o Sure, gylphs can be expensive on AH, but you were happy once you got it and had worked towards getting that glyph you needed... I miss the days when you had to look for a party, and make a trip out of it.. Just too many lazy people around these days, I guess. But heey, that's just my point of view.And damn that was a lot of changes O_O and as Cayliax stated; The game is gonna revolve around nothing but damage.. that is just silly.
Something that has always anoyed me is how strong PvP gear is relative to PvE gear in regards to taking the gear into the oposite role.There is just no way you can efffectivelly PvP with PvE gear, however doing PvE with PvP gear actually works due to PvP gear beiging easier to obtain at higher item levels. By having hit/expertise, you are effectivelly reducing the DPS of a player without the cap by 14%, however by removing this stat, PvP gear will be more viable than ever. This means that it will be far more efficient to get PvP gear for a casual player, which means you are forcing players to play PvP even though they dont want to. Please dont remove hit/expertise. P.S: Most of the gameplay problems you have to date is caused by making the game too easy. People like to feel better than other people. Said and done!Make more things hard to get or confusing as ^&*!, seriously.
As a mage player....i will miss some things like evocation with glyph in pvp but tbh...its gonna be the best xpac:D
sooo Arcane Shot is taken away from MM hunters that is 90% of my dmg.. GREAT if these changes come into the game im calling it millions of people will quit wowIf most of your damage is coming from Arcane Shot as an MM hunter, you're doing it wrong. I completely eliminated Arcane Shot from my MM rotation and my dps increased significantly.I'm personally more worried about many of the pets losing their utility. From the looks of it, very few will have anything other than standard abilities. Though it is alpha, and they have just made no mention of anything changing with regards to pets, so we will see.
