I think if they gave us the Executioner's Precision trait back, perhaps baked into Execute, that phase would feel a lot better.
The extreme between mastery being our best to now our worst, has made this transition from Legion to BfA pre-patch a rough one. TtK is a lot higher overall in my experience, guess that's what we get for saving the world from Sargeras' sword?
It certainly feels pretty god damn awful at times in current tier raids, especially when you're stuck with mastery on every piece of gear at the moment. Really wish they would have done something different with the new mastery for BFA, and to make it a bit faster paced. I can't imagine why anyone would prefer such a slow boring spec.
Wish they'd take Sweeping Strikes off the GCD. Feels so awful
How about Mastery also reducing CS's cooldown?Agreed though. Arms feels...lamer. Can't really build up power to blast things like before, not without using the 100 talent choice. Not getting CS resets is dull. Weighting so much of the class onto Overpower as a random damage button is dull. Deep Wounds is unpleasantly arbitrary.It's like Arms is the new version of the Shaman's Enhancement spec: do a basic uninteresting rotation and hope for random procs. More Slam, wooooooo-hoooooo.I'll admit my grasp of the Arms meta is weak at best because the numerous nerfs during and what's coming in BfA have come (presumably) from unfair competitive advantages and I don't get it while Fury is, of course, getting stronger. Amazing.Oh, and Arms doesn't get Battle Cry/Recklessness any more. I'm sorry WHAT? Isn't a perfectly timed, enemy-obliterating series of power strikes the entire theme of Arms? Arms doesn't feel kinetic or dynamic. It feels awkward and abitrary. It feels like the vagabond spec constantly second best to Fury in everything, yet another change in BfA apparently coming from a place of fundamental confusion; a sense of what shouldn't be instead of what should.
Oh and Fury's getting Siegebreaker the 15% damage multiplier ability. You know, like Colossus Smash but on a shorter cooldown.FFS Blizz! Wasn't the entire theme of BfA "emphasizing class/spec differences"! What IS this bull%^&*!
No, actually, it doesn't. I've been playing all of Legion with Arms and was almost always top DPS. Now? I'm getting one-shotted and CC'd in War Mode, unable to defend myself because as I'm CC'd repeatedly, I can't get rage. If I can't get rage and get a second CC on me after using the medallion, then I die. Why? Lack of everything that made the spec good.I'm also bottom DPS now in LFR ffs with the other Arms, eith Fury only being a few spots higher, by maybe two or three spots. Did I mention I was ilvl 941 before all this? No? I should have. Because a previously 941 turned 218 should still be doing more DPS than a Fury at 200.
It's so slow. SO. SLOW. You MS and have nothing to do.Hard pass.
