This is a great nerf to the kiting meta. Actually great change
i am LOVING this tuning wave for m+! perhaps the new KSM wont be as terrible as we first thought :P
just remove it and remove spiteful and tyrannical and we get plenty of cool weeks
And why is this not a hotfix on live servers? We're going into the third worst week in the rotation, with necrotic, and we see that Blizzard implements a fix on PTR that might as well have been pushed to live... Annoying
I mean it's good an all, but I don't really like the fact that Blood DKs are being way more punished by necrotic than all the other tanks.
Its a great change, but its still not enough. I've been saying it for years now - if they made m+ about empowering the player, rather than annoying them, the mode would be a lot more fun. For some bizarre reason, for almost half a decade now, Blizzard has decided that, as a tank, you should... kite, as a caster, you should.... not cast, as a healer you should... DPS and as of any kind you should... never cleave.Why? Who thinks Necrotic, Bolstering, Quaking and so on are fun? They're... not. Again, make the mode about empowering the player, not ruining their gameplay. It is baffling to me that half of these affixes made it to live. But yeah, its a great change - but as a general rule: whenever you take a feature you put into the game and make it occur half as often and players rejoice, there's a pretty good chance that the entire feature is bad and shouldn't exist at all - call it the 'stop making my gameplay miserable' rule.Again - make M+ about empowering the player, not burying them in a quagmire of tedious nonsense. Why not try.. you know... just making the bosses and trash hard instead? Then you can balance their damage and health and you gain powers to counter the increasing difficulty. A novel idea! At the very least it'll be more fun than running as a tank, being unable to heal as a healer and having to spam dps spells instead, being unable to cast as a caster, or being unable to cleave as a melee DPS.
wrong affix again lul
How about this? Get rid of both Tyrannical and Fortified. They are not good affixes and provide no uniqueness to a M+ Dungeon besides make bosses/trash last longer.My suggestion to replace Tyrannical? Add things to current affixes to where they proc during boss fights. For example, Spiteful Shades spawn whenever a trash mob dies. For bosses it could spawn a shade every 20 seconds.This could make boss fights way more unique in M+ every week.
Great nerfs, keep more of them coming!
It's a start.
too little too latewake me up next xpac
Great change to see, now let's make some affixes that are more fun to play with like spiteful instead of boring annoying ones
