DEM Monk Changes!
We're confused too :/ We're reaching out for clarification--it seems the Ability Pruning and Class sections don't always line up.
So first they nerf Combo Breaker and now they remove it completely? A huge nerf to the WW class!
Well looks like it's time to break out all the old Stance Dance macros.
I'm ecstatic about the return of stance-specific abilities, as stance-dancing is negligible 99% of the time in PvE. The ability pruning combined with the loss of Berserker Stance will make it more manageable than ever before. Let's hope they don't revive the rage penalty on top of all these changes.
We've just updated the patch notes as Blizzard have done the same!
I'm thoroughly confused as to why it would be necessary to force Devouring Plague to cost three orbs. That's going to be a huge pain to deal with sometimes, actually, since haste is affecting Mind Blast's cooldown currently. I am NOT looking forward to seeing what happens under cast speed suppression effects.
So first they nerf Combo Breaker and now they remove it completely? A huge nerf to the WW class!You have to read the notes more carefully.They folded Combo Breaker into Tiger Stance by default and removed the passive.
"Mortal Strike now costs 30 Rage (instead of generating 10 Rage). generates 20 Rage (up from 10 Rage)."Was there supposed to be a strikethrough starting from "generates?" As in, was it supposed to read"Mortal Strike now costs 30 Rage (instead of generating 10 Rage). generates 20 Rage (up from 10 Rage)."That would make more sense, unless MS really will cost AND generate Rage.
I feel like the ability pruning thing is making it seem alot more complicated than removing clutter... They're baking all the passives into abilities to the point that we might as well have no listed passives at all (which honestly, seems really, really weird for an MMO).
"Self-Sustainability for Mages" I thought we were getting some extra form of self healing for a second, but then I saw it was a buff to conjure food. Should be nice for solo play at least, lol
"Titan’s Grip has been removed." that just !@#$ing pissed me off someone tell me thats a *!@#ing joke
"Titan’s Grip has been removed." that just !@#$ing pissed me off someone tell me thats a *!@#ing joke*sighs*Why can't people actually READ the patch notes?Titan's Grip's effect was folded into the "Crazed Berserker" passive that you get at lvl 10. And then the passive got removed.In practical terms, all this means is that you can dual-wield 2handed weapons at 10 instead of 30.They are removing almost every passive, and just putting all of them into a single passive effect at lvl 10, rather than multiple passives we gotta unlock at later levels.If anything, it should make leveling less of a hassle since you get most of your mechanics as soon as you pick your spec at 10.
"Titan’s Grip has been removed." that just !@#$ing pissed me off someone tell me thats a *!@#ing jokeread more carefully --it is now part of crazed beserker
Titan’s Grip has been removed.Please tell me that's a typo.
Titan’s Grip has been removed.Please tell me that's a typo.Another who cant read --see replies above
Wow. That's... quite a bit. It's actually kind of sad that as the game gets better and, well, more modern, the total number of subscribers goes down. WoD looks like it's going to address a lot of issues people have been having.
Disappointing how they haven't changed anything about the unbalanced racial changes, most horde racials got nerfed, removed or unaltered while alliance gained so much :(Blizzard needs to get their stuff together and consider both sides of the player base when making these decisions.
