RIP Sack was looking forward to that.
It's weird, but I kind of get it? For a lot of classes, even a lower-ilvl Divine Bell is just better than anything offered in raid, especially if you're a cooldown class (Venthyr Boomy comes to mind immediately).I'm just wondering if/when Blizzard will realize that either A.) on-use trinkets should probably always be mediocre, or that B.) the "best" ones should come from the content they seem to want us to do (M+/Raid).
Literally why, just change the mastery scaling on the offending specs (aka boomkin).
They could add a CAP on how much mastery the bell can give, that a different way to Nerf ir but they choose to reduce it instead... oh well
wow 24% nerf for the sack, now i don't even want that trinket anymore.as a Havoc Main there were already better performing trinkets for my class this tier. Now if this trinket was scaled up to ilvl 252, then it would have been best in slot and even outperforming salvaged fusion amplifier. However 24% is too much. According to my calculations this will make it fall to the bottom mid tier trinkets in terms of %dps gains from a single trinket (source Bloodmallet). And let's be honest, all top tier players don't care about average-at-best trinkets.Instead of bringing it more in line with other trinkets and still make it a very strong choice that people would love to chase before mythic raid tier trinkets they just ruined it.I was really looking forward to farm this one next patch, now it is a complete waste.Guess we will just stick to Phial of Putrefaction until 10.0 hits, lame., The Bell however I get, stupid how much mastery and power this item gave for balance druids during convoke. But its not a direkt nerf to the trinkets output power, it just makes it less bursty.Mastery nerfed by 40%, yes but duration increased by 66!%.A shame this item is a worldquest reward only and cant roll top tier item levels or else it would have seen more use by other classes.
Anyway as druid this mostly matter for Venthyr and Fae, they just want us to follow what was already ongoing : lets play Kyrian :)
Actually I am glad they fixed the trinket finally.
I wish they would allow WQ trinkets to be upgradable with something the same way other gear is. I mean some of the best trinket are from WQ. I dont even bother trying to get the raid/Dungeon ones
Besides time gating, nerfing trinkets seems to be very popular
Havoc main here.RIP the dream of farming something other than Plaguefall next tier. Was also looking forward to the opportunity to be happy about seeing EITHER Phial or Sack in the vault but guess it's going to be the same grind once again for max-level Phial. Boo!Fingers crossed they know what they're doing and that they are balancing it to be in line with other top-tier trinkets. We need more choice!
If you ask me, Use trinkets are un-fun in casual content anyway, you either macro or forget them.Make them exclusive to dungeons/raids, and don't have them simply be stat increases, there are plenty of good examples how to make other Use effects.Oh and remove "Unique-equipped" from rings and trinkets acquired in outdoor content! It's less pronounced in SL, but in BfA, WQs/Emissaries had like 3 different rings, and I always got the same one over and over.Actually, remove it from rings altogether.
The blizzard approach to "balance", make anything the players like weaker instead of making the things players aren't using stronger.
