Acclimation, why the lack of love?
Return to board index
Ah, I mixed up old Aura with Acclimation... So it does still have that going for it.
All the same though, after being a proponent for Acclimation in the past, I still don't miss it at all after speccing out of it.
In thinking about it, I see Acclimation as a talent very similar to the old +defense skill tanking talents for warriors and paladins. Used to be you needed that extra defense from talents to get to uncrittable, but as people progressed and got better equipment, they would respec out of those talents as they were no longer needed and pick up something else that would help with threat generation.
Acclimation might help for a little bit as you're gearing up. I remember one of the first times I healed heroic Loken. People weren't good at dodging the novas and we were asking one of the hunters to switch to the nature resistance aura. Still we had to give up that run as a bit of resistance doesn't fix bad/stupid play. After reading up on better strategies and getting a few upgrades, Loken is now cake and almost everyone runs resistance-less.
For Skadi, I might be prone to still toss up a frost aura, but sometimes I prefer to switch to concentration aura (usually go with ret aura up) since I'll undoubtedly get some heal aggro from new adds running up.
Maybe it will help some people with progression in Ulduar, but I'm 100% sure that raid groups aren't going to require a deep frost DK to be there for acclimation.
