There was a news about russians guild going alliance just for one encounter because of racials and bleeds and I laughed about what if nerfs are coming to this. Well, howdy Exorsus?
So... because of the 1% of the playerbase that raids world first everyone who picked dwarf now suffers in this situation? I will never understand this design philosophy.It's like your Dungeon Master telling you that your Abyssal Tieflings (UA) Levitate spell is not viable for the session bc it has pedal traps in it.Just... WHY?
Didn't hear us bdks complain this much when they made every boss mechanic in nyalotha applicable through AMS. Guess you dwarfs have to play the game the same way as everybody else now.
Racials have been insignificant for raiding for a long time. Anybody believing this to be the large turning point for faction balance is just silly and doesn't care about the health of the game. You don't want Blizzard to do this through racials. There are other much better ways to try and fix the faction balance.Although I doubt it's going to happen. Players are going to stick with the faction with the highest number of competitive players to make recruitment and finding people for high keys at every hour of the day easier. Right now that's Horde but some day that might shift to Alliance and then we have the same issue again.
I'm actually confused how people in these comments think, that a Horde guild switching to alliance, then showing up in the first sites of wowprogress is actually "alliance pride"(?) .. They're still horde and will switch back to horde immediately..There wouldn't all of a sudden be world 40 alliance guilds in the top5 just because of that, they still don't put the required time in for that.
... I honestly don't get why people are mad.That bleed is a freaking boss mechanic OF COURSE YOU SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO REMOVE WITH A FREAKING RACIAL SKILL.
It is a bit ironic ...they nerf kyrian phial (which only brings a heal+cleanse). While high mobility covenant abilities (venthyr/nightfae) still help you more in most other bossfights or mythic runs...kinda allowing you to skip boss mechanics with over the top mobility.Its like Blizzard is blind to the power mobility can offer (i.e Monk Legendary allowing you to perma blink behind a pillar heal up and blink back).
Phew, thank god. Couldnt have a racial do something in the way of mechanics for once, that would be way too op. (I am not talking about dps)
Or ya know... instead of making a special bleed being indispensable by effects that say they remove bleeds to just having no typing.
Just make racials passive and close to useless, like human racial passive giving exp or undead one granting underwater breathing. No dps, survivability, CC or movement buffs, boom, problem solved. Everybody will be equally unhappy, but at least we will finally be freed from these faction debates.
