#1 - 2014/02/10 12:44:00 AMI think its safe to say casting while on the move has been a nightmare for the devs balance wise. I'm just curious if the general idea is that they are going to remove casting while on the move for the next expansion?
They say its too jarring of a change mid-expac and usually save these kinds of things for a new expansion. So I'm curious if they still intend to gut these mechanics or if they are starting to get cold feet.
Lightning Bolt/Spiritwalkers Grace
Out of those I think only lightning bolt/spiritwalkers grace should remain (if any). The rest should be removed IMO. It trivializes mechanics and hurts specs that don't have access to casting while on the move.
Speaking as a shadow priest it sucks not having something to use for multiple reasons:
a) The pvp metagame is a wreck right now. A lot of the problems come from instant casts/casting while on the move. Melee are balanced around having to deal with casting while on the move so it really hits hard when you are a caster that cannot do that
b) The devs refuse to add any more "casting while on the move" when the only spec in the game that doesn't have it is shadow (does balance have something? I don't think they do either). When encounters are somewhat balanced around the idea that ranged can bypass mechanics when casting on the move it hurts the specs that can't do that
What do you guys think? I think they need to scrap all of this casting while on the move stuff as its only going to become a standard to make raid mechanics balanced around being able to move out of stuff while still casting. I personally think its a bit unfair.
Disclaimer: Don't bother trying to say shadow should just ask for casting while on the move. The devs have made it clear they will not be adding any more of that and they are unhappy they added it to warlocks in the first place.
