Recommended Posts

ZWpDd05.jpg
 

We have some class tuning coming with this week's maintenance featuring Resto Druids, Arcane Mages, WW Monks, Retri Paladins, Disc and Holy Priests, Resto Shamans, Rogues and Arms Warriors. The hardest hit are Disc Priests and all Rogue specs, with Arms Warrs and Rest Shamans getting some buffs.

With regular weekly maintenance in each region, starting in the Americas region tomorrow morning, we're making some adjustments to several specs to address balance issues in the Pre-Patch. Here's a rundown of the changes you'll see in the live game:
 
  • Mage
    • Arcane
  • Paladin
    • Retribution
      • All damage abilities have been reduced 3%.
  • Rogue
    • Assassination
      • All damage abilities reduced 4%.
    • Outlaw
      • All damage abilities reduced 3%.
    • Subtlety
      • All damage abilities reduced 4%.
  • Warrior
    • Arms
      • All damage abilities increased 3%.


Thanks!

That was kinda obvious that palas and rouges will get a nerf since theyre dmg is ridiculous at the moment. As sub they have no problem of hitting for 10-15 k dmg so thats sic

Come on men, they make unplayable the Arc Mage, is not only BOOOOOOORING with only 2 or 3 spells usefull in the rotation, now is the most weak class in the entire game. Why Blizzard, why change a class that was working perfect in Legion? Why dont tell us they want we play "A", "B" or "C" class and finish this joke? Really men, come on!

But it sucks, because Rogues doesn't have such a good defensive abilities like Palas/Warriors/DKs (who are also plate wearers) and its whole gameplay is DMG dependent. If they nerf DMG for class, which should be a glass cannon to deal the same amount as normal plate, then it's pointless to play a rogue, because plate vs leather with the same dps is not worth even trying above 1.8k. There were only several rogues above that rank, because playing DK/DH/even Feral brought you much easier gameplay. The last one is the good example how to make class garbage. During Legion after rework for Ferals, Feral become just better Rogue.

Are you out of your mind or just trolling? Feint? Cloak? Evasion? Crimson Vial? Cheat Death? Your class was literally stacked to oblivion throughout Legion BECAUSE of your defensives. I lost a raidspot so many times in ToS because of your class. Only Feint was slightly nerfed, everything else works the same. I don't understand whether you're trolling or  just very unskilled.

This. Rogue has one of the best, If not the best defensive toolkit against almost anything on a very short to medium Cooldown! 😀

Exactly. A Rogues defensive potential doesn't come from wearing plate but from the abilities. Granted they nerfed perma-feint which with talent was what? like 50% aoe and 30% non aoe mitigation that you could have up forever. Even with the cooldown, feint will still be great in Raids and Dungeons. Cloak got nerfed too if I'm not mistaken, but there's Evasion as well – everything baseline. A Rogues Survivability is still insanely good.

I'm rather surprised they buffed Arms Warriors - from what I hear, they're doing pretty well - guess I was wrong...

 

And to nerf an ability by 27% seems rather huge - gg WWs 🙂

Yeah like, DKs and Warriors literally have nothing except very clunky and long cooldowns, rogue has like 4 buttons that cost only a gcd (in some cases, not even that) and he is complaining they are glass cannons. Some people really have zero clue about their class.

On the WW change, Blackout Kick was way too strong for its cost and it completely distorted the rotation, making Rising Sun Kick barely worth using at all. This is a great step in the right direction and its preferable that WW gets buffs on other parts / aura buff to compensate if its not competitive now.

So is priority back to RSK > BOK?

I can understand nerfing Rogue Damage in PvP but overall damage nerf is a bit excessive.

Outside of the opener Rogue damage isn't all that impressive.  Sin/Sub Rogues have really good Damage Buffs from Stealth but once we are past the opener we already hit like a soft noodle.

If anything, they should have nerfed Rogue Openers hard and gave a minor buff to overall damage to help our weak sustained damage.

I would guess so... as one Comment on Wowhead put it:

Problem: Monks are complaining RSK isn't even worth using anymore, not enough damage.

Solution: Well let's nerf BOK, that'll teach them to use RSK again.

/shrug

Don't get me wrong. I read peak of Serenity and the way it was, was clearly not the way Blizzard intended WW should play. If I got peak correctly, you just generated Chi by any means possible to dump it on BOK – with the occasional FoF. Granted I didn't play WW in the prepatch. So something had to be done. But nerfing one major damage ability by roughly a third without compensating for it anywhere else seems like a big deal in my book. Well at least in theory. I guess it remains to be seen, how WW monks fare after the change.

I'll wait for people to do the math, because I'm a lazy guy, but it would indeed imply that RSK comes again as a higher priority than BOK.

Knowing this, it could also mean that Chi Wave coudl be back as the best mono talent of it's tier, while Chi Burst would be the best for AoE. (The main attract of Chi Burst is the Chi generation, that allowed another BOK to be cast.)

I think at least some of this is justified. Just felt wrong playing my Disc Priest with the same gear level as my Hunter and dealing more damage with far less interaction and very straight forward talents (Sins of the Many for example).

I think that you guys don't understand what i mean. Rogues were designed as glass cannons and this what they're today is just nothing more like warriors with same dmg and less survivability. By survivability I mean the grounds, which should be balancing there, not the skills in your spellbooks. Balancing games has nothing to do with player's skills. Try challenge ppl above 2k rating as a rogue (not in the pre-patch one) and then we can talk. 😉

Well then, i really hope you never doing balancing stuff in any game 😉 . No seriously, Blizzard has to balance classes while considering player skills. It's not just: "oh well, lets assume people are face-rolling and arms paddling - this we have to balance". Balancing has to be made around the assumption player knows how to play. Otherwise there would be insane overpowerd classes if you know how to play. Doesn't make sense, don't you think?

      Following in the footsteps of good old Doubleagent, who was the first Neutral character without a faction to reached Level 120 with just Herbalism and Mining, here's Pandémia who has reached Level 85 so far. Congratulations!
      Being neutral requires you to remain in the Pandaren starting area without picking a faction and gain Experience by looting herbs and mining nodes, which is extremely slow and time-consuming.

      Update: Blizzard have added a new hotfix, as the issue with C'Thun's eye beam, which we mentioned earlier today, has been resolved as well.

      Today's hotfixes bring up the Brawl changeup in retail, as well as the scepter shards becoming epic quality in Classic.
      August 4 (source)
      Player versus Player
      This week’s Comp Stomp Brawl has been replaced with Temple of Hotmogu. Developers’ note: We’ve identified some issues with Comp Stomp and have removed it from the rotation. Comp Stomp will return to the rotation in Shadowlands. WoW Classic
      The Blue Scepter Shard, Green Scepter Shard, and Red Scepter Shard quest items are now Epic quality. Developers’ note: We're changing the item quality on the Scepter Shard quest items to Epic (purple) so that they'll be easier to distribute to the correct person in raids using Group Loot or Master Looter. Fixed an issue that caused C’Thun within Temple of Ahn’Qiraj to incorrectly delay casting Eye Beam when engaging in combat.

      Castle Nathria raid testing continues on the Shadowlands Alpha on Heroic difficulty and we will finally get to see the final boss of the raid—Sire Denathrius!
      (Source)
      On Thursday, August 6th and Friday, August 7th, we will be continuing our raid tests in Castle Nathria.
      Thursday, August 6th
      Artificer Xy’mox - Heroic Castle Nathria
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Sire Denathrius - Heroic Castle Nathria
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      Friday, August 7th
      Hungering Destroyer - Mythic Castle Nathria
      13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)
      Lady Inerva Darkvein - Mythic Castle Nathria
      14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      To facilitate testing, players who have not committed themselves to a Covenant can speak with Acquirer Ta’est inside Castle Nathria to temporarily bind themselves to one of the four factions.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 60 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
      We appreciate you taking the time to test our content and look forward to reading your feedback.

      Following the recent suspensions of some Galywix members that were involved in RMT, the Gallywix community have deleted their website, Discord, and social media accounts.
      Some members of the Gallywix community were found to be participating in real money trading, and so Blizzard permanently suspended their accounts.
      Earlier today, the former raid leader of Method openly admitted that the guild was purchasing gold directly from Gallywix for real money. As a result, the Gallywix community have vanished into thin air and they've taken down their website, which currently does not load. The same goes for their Twitter profile, which no longer exists. They even deleted their Discord.

      On Reddit, people are already speculating they did this to prevent Blizzard from tracking down their accounts. Another Reddit user says boosting is too lucrative for Gallywix to be dead and they will reform in some way, since the community is still in tact.

      Engineers will gain access to a Holographic Auctioneer in Oribos, the new city hub added to Shadowlands.
      Reddit user HydraMods discovered that there is an Auctioneer available in Oribos, so we went to the Hall of Shapes to investigate.

      The auctioneer tells you to leave because you have no Engineering skill.
      Unfortunately, the Auctioneer will be available only when you learn the Engineering skill.
