Mages get almost a full page of nerfs and hunters get a buff of having no more aspect of the fox. Warriors didnt even get touched.

<Language, Mister.>

Time to reroll because mages are going to get completely <removed> on now. Why play a mage when i can just face roll on my hunter or warrior?

Granted mages are still good, but the fact warriors we not even touched? smh.

I probably shouldn't reply to a thread like this since the original post isn't long on constructive feedback or reasoned analysis, but I feel compelled to point out that there are significant Hunter changes in there too. The Lynx Rush change shifts an ability that currently provides burst to one more suited to sustained damage, and the Bestial Wrath change will have a ripple effect on how the spec is played overall.

I also want to point out that this is just the latest round of changes on the PTR. They aren't final, and things could be added, removed or changed before 5.1 goes live.

It's just weird that they got hit even harder than BM and that warriors haven't even been touched.


Negative Ghostrider. Warriors have already received some hotfixes, and more stuff could be coming down the pike. We're looking into it.

Great now this thread is going to turn into a thread asking draxx to read x and tell him to talk to devs about buffs and nerfs.


You just described every thread ever. =)

What about shadow priest off-heals? They are out of control atm. The utility they bring is grossly op.


Hybrid off-heals are something that we're concerned about in general.

My hands aren't filthy. They're clean...

Daxxarri I just want a good reason why mages got the 3 sec CD on pyroblast


Because chaining a several Pyroblasts into a target during a CC chain was too much.

The 3 second cooldown is affected by Haste, and this isn't intended to affect PvE. It's there to limit the number of Pyroblasts that can be chained together.

The sweet nectar that is the tears of mages. O how I love to drink thee.


Schadenfreude is a bitter draught. It sweetens remembered pain, but leaves the throat parched when the future's inevitable trials arrive.

Daxx, there´re many long explained feedback posts and you guys don´t bother replying to that


A Blizzard reply is not a mark of the value of a given thread or post.

I'm a pve player, and while I can see where the potential burst in PvP would need to be addressed, intended or not this will have a noticeable impact on our play in pve. With the implentation of our level 90 talents our rotation is already akward and this will make it much worse. Instead of a blanket 3 second cooldown what about one that is only applied if PoM is chosen as a talent or a 5-10 second cd after PoM is used


Since Haste affects the Pyroblast cooldown, ideally the change will have little noticeable effect in PvE.

PvE Dudes: Take it to Damage Dealing.

I'll do a little digging and see if I can bring a response to you there, in one thread, probably (see if someone else has already posted it first). This isn't the place.

Touched for the very first time?


Bloodied frequently, then cleansed meticulously.

Bet you my account that none of those changes involve disc priest. Except if you're going to nerf them more for some reason.


Do you have a scribe? I need a scribe.

What kills me is this is the most information that a blue has posted about our L90 talents.


It's not a level 90 talent discussion, but: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6934193795?page=2#31

Not that you'll like it necessarily, but there's a lot more information there about the PvE side of this particular coin.

can you be more specific?


Not quite yet, but more information is coming soon.

Actually: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6934193795?page=2#31

Not that you'll like it necessarily, but there's a lot more information there about the PvE side of this particular coin.

Not to be rude because I do appreciate the interaction but..

You do know what our level 90 talents are, right? Because your link doesn't mention them at all either.


I know, I probably phrased that response incorrectly. What I was trying to express is that I elaborated on the quoted bit elsewhere.

Edit: Fixed to avoid future confusion.
