Gratz on the new partners rogues. I thought blizzard wanted to balance the game, not switch who was overpowered.

w.e. I had my 2 weeks in the limelight. Too bad I only played 100 games and didn't get to 2400 in time.

Currently, druid/rogue based teams in 2s and 3s aren't being seen very much (compared to other compositions). If the druid/rogue based teams actually overtake how much we currently see priest/rogue teams then I'll agree the change was faulty.

However, while we fully expect druid/rogue teams to show up more often than they are now I'll be pretty surprised if they actually catch up to the priest/rogue numbers we're seeing right now. As long as the druid/rogue based comps peak out below the current priest/rogue groups, then it will have been a net improvement.

Of course, if druid/rogue does turn out to be a serious balance problem, then we'll do something about it.

Q u o t e:

The problem is this change just makes Druid/Rogue horribly overpowered against comps it's already capable of dealing with.


It's similar to arcane mages early in s5. Were they overpowered? Yeah their burst was absurd, but were they overrepresented? No. Druid/Rogue is the same way, it will still have trouble against Death Knights spamming chains and Ret paladin teams and opposing Druid teams, which will prevent it from being overrepresented, but the amount of CC it's capable of doing is completely broken.


That could prove true, but I'd rather let it ride for some amount of time before doing something as significant as putting Cyclone on the Fear DR. It may end up being necessary though.

Q u o t e:
Or you guys could learn how to code and not put cyclone and fear on the same dr while still having blind share drs with cyclone and fear.


That was certainly our first choice of action, however that change isn't hotfixable (or in the cards for 3.1.2).
