Chaos bane set looking kinda strong
Chaos Bane looks nuts.
Why even have other sets when you have Chaos Bane?
Chaos band does look to be by far the strongest damage wise. However, if 20 raid members get the blood one, besides the damage thatit does, that thing pulses for a total of 32k healing every 3 seconds, or about 10k hps. That’s the equivalent of having 2 extra healers. Lower damage, but way more sustain (i.e. for healing intensive fights like heroic painsmith)
If your healers are only healing for 5 k on HC bosses you’re gonna have a bad time, but yeah math is good, seems like it would replace one good healer if the entire raid had it equipped
They are potent, to say the least.Yet I'm still wondering what's the point of this damage buff in terms of both RP and gameplay, as well as questioning the game design : why would I want to lock specific gears even if I don't like their stats ?Might even be very troublesome if I happened to want anything hybrid. The damage dealer set is so powerful it'd be stupid to grab anything else but if I want to have fun in Torghast, chilling with the frost shards bonus for some sort of invincibility... Then I'd have to prepare a second set of equipment, which is out of the question.Meaningful choices aren't meant to be 1 option to choose from. Just like their Covenant system, you really don't have much of a choice here.
its cool i guess but arent these patch-only? to be replaced with the new thing 6 months from now?
Still I have 1 shard of domination and i did 10/10 Normal 7/10 HC. Increase drop chance blizzard.
shame Mythic+ players are screwed :(
In general, I try not to complain before I've had an opportunity to check a system out - but as of now I've killed 38 bosses in SoD already (normal + heroic) and am already starting mythic progression - I only have 1 domination socket (boots) and I have 0 of my top 5 shards. If the slow acquisition and rng is the intention, I just don't really understand who the system is for - you have to play a hell of a lot to get everything you need, but by the time you have a full set of gear and a full set of shards, you most likely don't need the set bonus.
What are you taking about mate? RP value of a socket set bonus? You can just transmog it. I swear people will complain about anything… If you want to equip something other than big damn so you can look cool in goldshire, then do it. Also trying to rally other people by comparing it to the covenant decision is ridiculous. It’s gear. Just swap it out like everyone does for mythic+ vs raid, single target vs cleave. You aren’t locked into it with a massive renown wall. Last point, if you’re the type of person to complain about this, and you are, you shouldn’t be worried about it because no type of content you are doing will require you to min/max. You could skip shards altogether and clear everything just fine.
900 primary stats are insane! Feels of Shadowmourn are back
I want to play the Blood set as a Mistweaver Healer because on paper the effect is the most suited for my playstyle but the Unholy Set is insanely overtuned there's no point playing any other set than this one. I mean even for tanks it would be silly to pass on so much primary stat. Damage is always welcome in raid on any role and I highly doubt that the pitifuly 1k600 healing every 3 sec will make any difference on tanks with near 100k health.
