They should have really tuned some of these buffs separately. Arms Warrior getting a 3% buff which counts for PvP too while they are already dominating arena is a headache-inducing decision.
3% to Havoc DHs is like giving bread crumbs to a hungry tiger who really needs a giant porter house steak!
Summary of changes:
Got to love how Blizzard have thrown the entire Warrior class into the trash, every spec they have performs awfully except for Arms in pvp.
did we actually need a class writer to tell us that 5 % is doing nothing for a spec? did we actually need class writer to tells us that surv is the worst spec in game and needs to be reworked?you could easily ask every wow gamer and they would tell you the same thing!
Waiting on Demonology buff, only up on the chart with the 3rd lowest population of players, how people will try it when is worthless almost every expac....
As a lock since 2006 i don't want Demonology buffed, i want it reworked!
Does anyone at Blizz even know whats going on with their own game? They just keep missing the mark over and over and over... it never gets better.
Arms is totally not underperforming, neither is BM, at least not in PvP. It is rather needed to rob certain specs of their insane oneshot mechanics than to buff and buff specs that are ok right now and require some more skill to use. We will end up with even more bursty situation than the one we are in right now. It used to be almost mandatory to chain cc to even get a window of opportunity to down someone, maybe not so if the team is overgeared, but now people easily die in one stun if not less. The former hotfix with strictly PvP or PvE balances is what we need more of.
People whining about their classes need to understand that they can't ALWAYS be on top. Just like gun balance in competitive shooters, Blizz has to change it up to keep things spicy. Feral has never been more fun than right now and hasn't been this competitive in a LONG time, but DH/Warrior(who were INCREDIBLY strong last xpac and still super strong in M+) are sitting here like "must always be #1 or game is trash!" which is a horrible way to think. Give other classes their time to shine for at least a patch. Afflic/Boomy/MM Hunter/WW Monk/Feral druid has been a much needed change from the stagnant and unchanging meta of the last 2 xpacs(4-5years). This is why we have alts people. Go level everything and have it on standby if you are going to sit back and cry that you aren't FotM.
No tweaks for resto druids? or MW monks? Can you understnd that with buffing damage to anyone you actualy put those who are forsaken to even more forseken position..... I love concept of frequent changes, but first do priority fixes to those who are forsaken, your prioritization of fixes are like WTF... Learn to make priority and stop coating fat turkey throat with more fat !
Maybe wowanalyzer will support Assass now XD (I'm better at assass even pre-buff than I am at sub....)
Hope Blizzard will buff BM's "Rylakstalker's Piercing Fangs" legendary. Because its crafted on the Back.
I really like Frost DK class author's attitude. He's genuinely happy to get a buff, he's like, wow guys, we just got something we didn't have, cool stuff! while most of the other authors, and I'm not arguing with the facts they bring, are like: damn, its not enough, we need more!
Aura buffs are, 99% of the time, useless.They don't fix the core issues most of these specs have as the class writers have pointed out.I get that blizzard doesn't want to make huge waves in terms of tuning before a major patch but this is almost worst than nothing at all.
BM Hunters need a lot more then 5%. We need 30% more damage on Kill Command to help our burst. Our beast clave should be buffed by 2 seconds. And make out pet rez 3 seconds at least.
celinamura seems unimpressed . where did they write ? i wonder if you are one of the writers who guides players away from survival & puts big X's through important talent optionseven though they're all pretty great with an open mind. ppl should always try the options before judging them , or else will never notice the obstacles that are perfectly handled by SV talents .
