Guess tanks weren't allowed to have any fun on Necrotic weeks.
Happy medium is 50% chance of applying necrotic per swing and call it a day.
Whoever at blizzard baited tanks into being happy about something for once and then pulled the rug out from under us again, sincerely go ^&*! yourself.
Really? What a nice reminder not co celebrate too early. I was really looking forward to this change as a blood DK main with the new tyrannical score ('cause necrotic is now tied to tyra only). Nevermind then
Cool, community, especially rare tanks, liked it. So revert it... Blizzard why do you do this to WoW ? Its just sad.
It's just a skill problem, right guys? Clearly we as tanks have to just get better at dealing with Blizzard's !@#$ty mechanics that are considered content. Glad I didn't get excited over this.
Make it a pulsing aura on mob death or something, that affects the whole group
Blizzard is confusing. They don't like the "kiting meta" and want tanks to tank. They nerf the affix that forces a kiting Meta the most, and then promptly revert it back to a kiting meta? If anything do what markelf said and place a 50% chance at applying necrotic on each swing. Give your words meaning and have some followthrough at the least.
Worst thing they could've done for necrotic. The affix is literally unplayable, nobody logs in for keys on necrotic week. Stop forcing bad affixes, let go of your useless pride, and just let players have fun. This is asinine at best.
Guess we have to keep kiting, because that is fun.
So it was nerfed and everyone was happy, especially tanks. Now they unnerfed it for no reason. No fun allowed i guess.
Was too good to be true
ok ya, 50/50 would be better. It's just an all-around unenjoyable affix for anyone. DPS included in this. I would really like to see some kind of nerf to this that makes it a harder week for tanks but I would like to want to do keys. Almost every tank I know just outright doesn't do keys on these weeks. But blizzard is turning into Battlestate games now. "FUN DETECTED! REMOVE FUN!"
Well that sucks. Was too good to go live I guess. With extreme tank shortage we have in game i'm not even sure why this affix still a thing...
Why is necrotic even still in the game? As a tank i say !@#$ this %^&*!
Tank here, and I'm passing my distaste for this affix down to all of you because I'll just continue not queueing on necrotic weeks and you DPS/healers can have fun waiting in LFG for one.
Since Blizz never said anything about Necrotic it probably was just a bug last build so it's less a 'revert' and more a 'fix'.
