good change :), now I just want to see them balance the capstone traits at the end of each tree (or at least the end of 1 of the 3 trees for each covenant) to be as powerful as the 10% mastery one that Night Fae has
This is a non-issue for tanks; you were always going to blindly run your 3 potency conduits anyway, Blizz hasn't required tanks to build defensively in a VERY long time.
Doesn't this defeat the whole conduit concept? It was supposed to be a concept of choice. Now you just slot in all the stuff you need with no real downside. You off-spec shouldn't have 100% of the best stuff. It's your off spec after all.
@Neuroxic 10% mastery and other similar traits are only amp stats, they increase your stat score like corruption amp stats. It's not that strong. if you have say +20% mastery from your score you'll end up at +22% during the effect.Also this post states that tanks have no choice. They still do, you can choose to not go for the 3 potency conduits and take another good trait leading to another type of conduit. in most cases an offensive trait in a branch does not lead to a potency conduit, same for defensive / utility.Also they'll probably add more than 3 different potency conduit.
I just read about the conduit changes like 30 min ago, and they're already making improvements. I understand why they want to make it "impossible" to min max, and I hope they are able to do it properly without ruining the game :o I don't have extremely high hopes though... Seems like they are trying to push systems on us ONLY for the sake of playtime. I'd much rather have a game that DOESNT take all my time so that I can actually look forward to playing the game when im out and about.
Great change. They are listening and making changes. This is awesome!
World of Warcraft is a persistent online game world. Just make persistent skill systems to use in that world as well. I'm tired of working hard on one expansion, just for all of that work to be undone in the next... Firstly, it disrespects the people who thought of the system and spent time developing it. Secondly, it disrespects the player who wasted their time leveling that system up and using it (while paying for the subscription). All that just to basically delete the skill/artifact/resource system or make it obsolete.This is truly a pathetic way to make video games. There's no integrity or pride in it.
One of the potency slots should probably be a wildcard.
