It just sucks ... There is no other way to put it ...
Bring the player not the class ™
I'm starting to worry for M+, now certain classes will become mandatory again, severely limiting access for certain classes.
Sick so lets make the professions no one used to use but now that have value not be used again
Blizz can suck lemons.Come on, really? They are going to ruin shadowlands by making everything cookiecutter, groups will only take certain classes to certain dungeons, and only if they have certain covenants.
It's fine to remove battle scrolls or weaken drumsBut combat res is essentialNow if you don't have a class with bres in your group and someone dies, you're screwed, probably wipe and depleteThat doesn't bring class utility at all, it just creates more barriers for some specs to not get into the m+ group on top of their m+ performance, correct covenant etc
This is just bad class design.
Maaaan, Shadowlands just keeps getting worse and worse. Even Belluar and Preach are admitting this. #PullTheRipcord. #NomorebaddesignBack to FFXIV for me, I'm afraid.
Good its being removed gives more reason for bringing warlocks.
If you want to be useless choose Paladin
Very curious if Mallet of-Thunderous Skins will stay at 25% , work after level 50, and be usable in dungeons/raids. Does anyone know?
I mean, let's be honest. The Engineer Brez was not good enough for use in mythic+. I barely got use out of it, especially as a healer which is the main role to need it to compete with druid. It had a cast time, chance of inflicting near fatal damage to you, and worst of all it was melee range only. They need to do something about the battle rez in mythic plus, it's made druid which already has so much more utility than any other healer, baseline mandatory and it doesn't even come close. I hope with this change they are actively looking into some other options in the battle rez area to help out other healers.
very bad change, hope they will bring a new b-rez proffession item in shadowlands, otherwise this will be a nightmare....................... i understand the battlescrolls and im totally fine with it, but the b-rez item is essential for many situations when you dont have a class with a br...
I have no idea what they are thinking about. Druid is already king in M+, take away engi battle rez from all other healers, and they will be the only healing class with tons of utility, free damage and battle rez. How is that normal? At this point it is not even funny.They need to update engi battle rez instead to make it more easy to use, delete mele range requirements, etc.
We had this bring the player not the class for too long. It was a nice concept, but due to meta classes, it was actually just bring the meta, not the player or a class. There was hardly a reason to bring any other class. With this change, I think they are trying to make more differences between classes to break the meta. When every class brings something unique, there won't be a 100% optimal solution, you will always sacrifice something for something else.But as always, this depends on the class balance, with bad balance, it could create even more strict meta than before, e.g. if resto druid will be top healer, you will hardly ever want any other healer when druid has battle ress, etc.
Excellent, we're not forced to be engineers anymore. Yay for having 2 professions I want again.Yesterday the hiverage was "PRIEST HEALERS ARE NOW MANDATORY BECAUSE WE CAN'T USE SCROLLS", today it is "DRUID HEALERS ARE NOW MANDATORY BECAUSE WE CAN'T BR".So which narrative do you want to force to fit your rage tomorrow, guys?
3rd expac in a row Resto druid all the way until Pala outscales him. Nice.
