Base Resilience Returning to World PvP

Recommended Posts

With Legion, Blizzard removed base resilience, because the rate at which Health scaled with damage was adjusted. Damage in World PvP is high. To address this issue, Blizzard will be adding some base resilience back to bring Health/damage ratios closer to where they are in the PvP templates.

Can we get some baseline resilience? This is the first expansion that you cant even duel to practice PvP because Blizzard decided in it's infinite wisdom that players no longer require 85% Player Damage Reduction. The result is people are just 1-shotting each other because no one can withstand the ridic PvE damage. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel with every single thing. We've had resilience since the start of BC over ten years ago. Put it back in, thanks.

Hello everyone,

This is a topic we've been discussing a lot recently. We agree that damage feels rather high in World PvP situations and we're considering some changes. First, we removed base resilience coming into Legion because we adjusted the rate at which health pools scale with respect to damage. In the past, player damage tended to outpace a character's health pool making damage feel stronger as an expansion went on. We made some adjustments to that system but we've found through playtesting with the templates that we've had to decrease damage and increase health to get damage pacing to a good spot.

In a future patch, we're considering adding in some base resilience to bring damage and health ratios closer to where they are with our pvp templates (and the adjusting those templates to compensate). It should make for better damage pacing in the outside world. We don't plan on activating templates in the outside world though. We think it's important that the game have a place where we don't make such drastic adjustments so you can feel your character's full power when fighting another player. Meanwhile, battlegrounds and arenas provide a much more structured environment for PvP gameplay.

I still think the undergeared players will get stomped on since they will hit like noodles with the base resilience applied, but the Heroic/Mythic raiders won't be able to come along and 2 shot them anymore.

      Rime of the Time-Lost Mariner is a toy that has a chance to drop from Dread Ship Vazuvius on Timeless Isle. When used, you get transformed into a skeleton, but Druids will receive a hat in Flight Form.

      It's time to look at the Hunter class changes and all their Covenant Abilities underwent some changes in the latest Shadowlands Beta build. Blizzard also reduced the Focus cost of Cobra Shot.
      Hunter
      Resonating Arrow radius increased. When a mob leaves the area, you can ignore LoS towards them for 4 more seconds. Flayed Shot's bonus Kill Shot no longer costs Focus. The design of Wild Spirits has been simplified, and there's no longer a difference in behavior when using single target versus area damage with this ability. Blizzard has also reduced the Focus cost of Cobra Shot.
      Death Chakram (Necrolord Covenant Ability) has been fixed to no longer chain the targets under crowd control effects that break upon taking damage. Flayed Shot (Venthyr Covenant Ability) - Fire a shot at your enemy, causing them to bleed for (250% of Attack power) Shadow damage over 20 seconds. Each time Flayed Shot deals damage, you have a 15% chance to gain Flayer's Mark, causing your next Kill Shot to be free and usable on any target, regardless of their current health. Resonating Arrow (Kyrian Covenant Ability) - Fire a resonating arrow to the target location that fills deals (20% of Attack Power) Arcane damage to any enemy in the area, and fill the area with echoing anima for 10 seconds. The effect causes your attacks to ignore line of sight to enemies in the area, and you have 30% increased critical strike chance against them. Leaving the area of echoing anima will still allow the hunter to ignore line of sight towards the enemy for 4 seconds. Wild Spirits (Night Fae Covenant Ability) - Evoke the energy of Wild Spirits at the target location, applying Wild dealing (25% of Attack Power) Nature damage and apply Hunter's Mark to all enemy targets within the area for 15 seconds, increasing the damage you deal to them by 5%. While the Wild Spirits are active, each damaging ability you use against a target affected by the Wild Mark strikes the target or your pet use against a target in the area will strike up to 5 nearby targets for (45% of Attack Power) Nature damage. Beast Mastery
      Cobra Shot now costs 35 Focus (was 45).

      Elysian Decree (Kyrian Covenant Ability) - Place a Kyrian Sigil at the target location that activates after 2 seconds. Detonates to deal (132% 350% of Attack Power) Arcane damage and shatter up to 3 Lesser Soul Fragments from enemies affected by the sigil. The Hunt (Night Fae Covenant Ability) - Charge to your target, striking them for (275% 455% of Attack Power) Nature damage, rooting them in place for 3 1.5 seconds and inflicting (95.7% 455.4% of Attack Power) Nature damage over 6 seconds to any enemy up to 5 enemies in your path. The pursuit invigorates your soul, healing you for 25% of the damage you deal to your Hunt targets for 60 30 seconds. Cooldown changed from 3 to 1.5 minutes. Havoc
      Furious Gaze has become Rank 3 Eye Beam. Eye Beam - Blasts all enemies in front of you, dealing guaranteed critical strikes for up to ${({?a320,415[{${( 12.38% of Attack Power )*10*2}}][{${( 12.38% of Attack Power )*10}}])} Chaos damage over 2 sec.
