After Demon Hunters RIP Demon Form From Demo Spec

7 posts in this topic

with demonic servitude it take makes fel/wrathguard fall behind doom/terrorguard in dps so makes our spec specific demon less special and if they do demo like BM hunters and make us feed demons command all fight ill be pissed demons have higher intellect then beast so we shouldn't have to feed them commands like BM,

but with all 3 specs able to summon doom/terrorguard making our fel/wrathguard inferior what is there left for demo to excel at?

destro has
1.faster casts
2.more constant area damage
3. far stronger nuke spell (chaos bolt)
4.constant mana regen with out health loss

affliction has
1.more dots
2.a channel spell as a filler
3.abale to force dots to tick more

then demo
1.fel/warthguard (doom/terrorguard is stonger overall)
2.demon form to increase damage and give a second dot ( no meta only corruption as a dot)

so demo only had the added power and dot of demon for and our specific demon even thos as above stated isn't the best to use even in demon spec so whats left to make use nothing more then a watered down combo of affliction an destruction anyone see what im saying

if they do a crappy cookie cutter and past of a BM hunter system so many people will be pissed and why cut away at demo when the monkeys cant take the time to learn it so they flock to the easiest and over powered becasue its so easy to use spec

Dude, punctuation.

 

 

 

1) What lore do you base demons being smarter then beasts? My demons have done a LOT of stupid ass things in the past, my hunter pets have too but I don't think one is overly smarter than the other.

 

2) Why would commanding your demons be bad? That is what Demo has always been, commanding your demons and having the best and badest demons around. Meta is a core part of Demo, but it isn't the only part. 

 

3) We have literally zero information right now other then a VERY general pre-view. They are clearly not close to being done with the class changes. Blizzard has let us down in the past, but freaking out before any information is given will give you ulcers.

 

4) I think everyone needs to start getting used to the idea that this isn't the same WoW we've always played. This remake started in MoP, greatly impacted WoD, and looks like will take over in Legion. SV hunters going melee? Disc priests being 50% DPS class? No weapon drops and a One Weapon to Rule Them All system? Hold on my friends, we're not in Kansas anymore.

 

 

 

There is a HUGE amount of room for improvement with this xpack, I've said it since Blizzcon 2013 - WoD will (did, does) suck. But the xpack after it I have a lot of hope for.

 

D3 team, HearthStone team, and HoTS team have been AMAZING at listening to player feed back and improving the game in the past 2-3 years. Before WoW liked to say "We listen, but what players want doesnt always make good game play" but now I think Blizzard is starting to see the light in that the player base is a LOT smarter than they ever gave us credit for. With this new outlook, we just might have an amazing xpack on our hands.

 

But all of it is just smoke and mirrors right now, since we have basically zero information to really go on. Other than the clear FFXIV rip off weapon mechanic and PvP system and the GW2 Halls rip off.

Well if they want to put demo's focus on demons and make warlocks actually interesting again, a new demon would be very welcome.

 

I'm not sure about others, but at the moment my lock feels lackluster.

Besides being a somewhat darktinted mage with some hunter type influence, I can't see where we have big selling points.
I don't feel unique playing my warlock. 

This is easily felt in the amount of warlocks active at the moment. We're in danger of becomming an extinct species if it wasn't for summon portals. And I'll be the voice of many and say I do not want to be personified by a summoning portal as a warlock.

 

Commanding demons can be fun if we have enough interaction with them.

Like debuffing the target, using spells that both do dmg and amplify our demon(s).
Be able to set up multiple demons and or summon temorarily addiditional (powerfull) demons.

Azmodan in HotS is a good example of some fun minion gameplay. (Yes totally not comparable, but still)

 

Let's just hope they :

1) Figure out how to make demonology interesting

2) Don't leave affliction and destruction behind with the current (imho dull) playstyle.

well giving use like kill commands or stamped or making it where we have to use space on our command bars would would make it to much like hunters and they said they wanted to make it easier to play so having to work a rotation for the demon and caster would be counter prouctive to that point

Demo also has/had high mobility, and that may be something they retain. 

 

I'm not happy we're getting changed yet again. But the sky isn't falling yet.
