Pandemic missing WoD

9 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I am new to Icy veins and this is my first post.

First, I want to congratulate you for the amazing work that you do. After finding  Icy Veins, using the guides and following the advices on the forum, my dps increased a lot.

 

I am been looking at the new talents tree for WoD in Wowhead and after checking the spells I realized that Pandemic is missing. Do you know if this was a mistake from  Wowhead or Blizzards will eliminate it? What do you think will happen if there is not pandemic in WoD?

 

I been looking through the forums and have not found anything about this topic, so sorry if it have been already discussed.

As I understand it (which could be outdated or wrong), Everybody gets "Pandemic".  Which is kind of lame since it was our Level 90 talent.....

 

Since there will no longer be anymore breakpoints you can "clip" whenever.... but you will still want to do its as close to the end of the Dot as possible to avoid redundant casts over the course of the fight.

Afaik, warlocks will retain the full effect of pandemic. So we can refresh under 50 percent.

Other classes get a slightly weaker version which allows refreshing under 30 percent.

I'd like to add that refreshing at the last possible second likely won't be wise

Depending on trinkets, or rather the unpredictable nature of RPPM, we won't want to have to refresh DoTs during trinket procs.

The removal of snapshotting will make this a DPS loss, as we'll want to be spending the full 10 seconds on drain soul / chaos bolt / soulfire etc.

The entire point of the change is that you can refresh without loss any time in the last 30% of the DoT (50% for warlocks).  The full duration of the new DoT will just be appended to the old one.  Basically a QoL thing given the changes to DoT haste.  Avoiding refreshing DoTs while you have procs will help, but it seems like the skill of responding to procs is moving to a model more akin to Destruction than Affliction- when you get procs, burn your resources/cast your big stuff.  It should, hopefully, mean that proc RNG is less of a ridiculous factor on overall DPS.

Without snapshotting, you have a HUGE window to refresh DoTs free from penalty.  Warlock's is bigger - anyone with a DoT uptime less than 99.5% is bad.  You'll literally just need to create a WeakAura that gets bigger and bigger as the time remaining on a DoT goes down until it buzzes in your face...

 

REFRESH UNSTABLE AFFLICTION DUMMY!

      Hello all.  I was just reading up on what addons Icy Veins suggested and noticed AffDot was one of them for Affliction Warlock use.  However, when I took a look at the this addon at Curse, it shows it is really old and has not been updated for Legion, according the information at Curse.
      World of Warcraft    6,805 Monthly Downloads
      Supports: 6.0.31    004,921 Total Downloads
      Updated Feb 19, 2015    Created Nov 6, 2012
      Does anyone know if there is a replacement for this addon since it seems not to have been updated for some time?
      Thanks in advance for any info.
