Recommended Posts

14580-artifact-series-death-knight.jpg

Naowh recently cleared Freehold +11 and Atal'Dazar +12 in time with a group of five Blood Death Knights.

Both keystone runs have been completed with the following affixes active:

Freehold Clear (Mythic +11)

The group completed the run with 5 minutes and 14 seconds remaining (30:46 / 36:00).

Atal'Dazar Clear (Mythic +12)

The clear was completed in 29 minutes and 17 seconds.

Sadly, this will lead to people (and therefore Blizz) overreacting and probably overnerfing Blood DK.

I admire the skill and work that went into making these runs, but it’s probably not healthy for the overall balance.

They've not spanked the DK's status as the strongest solo and cheese group class in the game since they were introduced in Wrath.  A couple weeks ago a DK solo'd a +9 (and a week later a paly did a +10, IIRC).  This is earlier in the patch than usual for high level current expansion mastery but we've got what seems like an unprecedented ilvl creep too.

DK's have been too strong since the end of Legion. Let's look at the facts:

1) The last M+ invitational in the spring was tanked entirely by Blood DKs's.

2) The current tanking breakdown for the Top 100 tanks worldwide by raider.io ranking is as follows:

- 66 Blood Dk's

- 15 Vengeance DH's

- 9 Paladins

- 7 Monks

- 2 Warriors

- 1 Druid

 

Those numbers don't lie. When the top end of the community is leaning so heavily to one class, there is typically good reason for it.

Every class brings something different, DH brings a speed that no other class can match with almost as much self healing as a dk with  mass grip and almost as much aoe. Warriors bring unmatched dps  and unmatched stuns and while staying in combat they can almost match a DH in MS as long as they have something to charge. Pally brings group utility (LoH, BoP, Bubble taunt, massive off heals) and rez with good dps out put aswell, just not great aoe output. Druid has rez, brez, off heals, invis, and decent movement speed and possibly the easiest tank to play with tons of aoe. I don't know if its been fixed but monks keg smash last expansion pulled 100% normal aggro on skittish weeks and to my knowledge was never fixed, at the end of the expansion there I was able to drop my two largest aoe abilities as a frost dk which was broken amounts of damage and not pull aggro on skittish weeks. Monks can also rez and have high movement speed. What do dks get aside from being able to live very very well on our own and possibly the most aoe abilities (Which does not mean the most aoe dps) and a brez that now costs more than a death strike!? Its what DK brings to the table. Nerf the self healing of a dk and it will be the worst tank because we wont offer anything that some other tank can do just as well with more utility.

Dks aren't even the #1 tank for high keys there is a monk, dh, and pally all doing +18 keys in time. Just because you are not capable of doing high keys on a tank other than a DK doesnt mean the class is broken. And if DKs are broken why arent all guilds running 2 blood dk tanks for raiding? Oh thats because we're not the best for raiding?? SO again nerfing the self healing of a dk tank would totally take the dk out of the competition.

Just to prove my point the #1 guild to get world first mythic used a monk tank on EVERY fight and on 5 of the 8 fights used two monk tanks. Breaking classes just because you don't like it doesn't help anyone or class balance.

This doesn't justify why there shouldn't be a tank rework. Any tank class brings something different but if you can't make it up for any dungeon, it's not balanced. The main reason why DK is so broke right now is that top DKs requires almost no healer intervention on most fights, and adds up a tons of utilities on undead packs (with dk mind control) which cheese a damn lot of packs. With a disc priest, you can just tunnel tyranical boss and solely focus on dps with some healing on dps. There is no drawback from doing this so you can clear stuff always faster and this is why it is meta. The point of playing DH is kiting, but you cannot dps while you kite (or not as much as any other dk really). You got also got a necrotic cheese right out of hand (Thanks god at least others tank got the moonkin alternative)... And it adds on. There's really not enough mechanics you can cheese and go through easier than with a DK and this is why it's so unbalanced right now. Remember in legion when Prot warriors were meta in Higher Karazhan with spell reflect? This is the kind of buffs others class desesperatly need. Something to make themselves more valuable than the DK's self healing which makes anything else look bad at first hand. To make it fair, all tanks self healing abilities got a nerf since legion except the DKs. Tanks in legion were all able to hold themselves up the same way DKs are right now.

Now raiding is something else since you have to soak much higher quantities of non-kitable damage which brewmasters are excelling at since WoD. It's basically the exact same problem since no other tanks are able to match their damage reduction abilities.

I'm not on the nerf DK's side, I'm just for a general tank rework which would significantly set all of them apart on certain circumstances.

Wow i never thought about it that way. You are very right about what you are saying. I remember following Raegwyn back in the days. He was the solo GOD and even soloed current content back in WOTLK. Back then the forums were flooded with post stating blood dk's were far to OP and that the class ruined wow, the game was broken etc etc. For me who love to create content for myself these kind of things is AMAZING. I love storys about people who play the game in other way's than it was created and ment to be played. 

Great work to the DK's and Ghoullove really has a strong point. Sad but true.

      The remasters and upscales keep on coming, as we have the Burning Crusade's intro cinematic in up to 8K resolution now!
      While BC is my favorite expansion ever, I was never a fan of the cinematic, as it's just a collection of various clips that don't have much of anything to do with Illidan's narration, until the very end. Obviously the two new races deserved screen time, but we didn't even get to see the Dranei's ship(s) in there, and then it's straight on to random battle clips. It obviously takes its cue from the Vanilla cinematic, as far as the clips go, but where it worked for Vanilla, which was simply setting the stage for the world itself, it falls a little flat here. But at least it does end on a high note, with the green horned one making a proper appearance.

      We have more Ivan Kuzkin goodness for you today, as he's put together a highlight reel of his 2019 Arena cinematic footage!
      We'll also be taking a look at his previous PvP videos, including a really old one from 4 years ago which is particularly impressive (and longer). Here's "The Rhythm of Chaos":
      And here's two earlier video trailers for the 2019 spring and fall seasons:
       
      Impressive stuff as always. Which cinematic would you wish IKedit would remaster next? Or should he go back to his earlier class series or other original machinimas?

      Even though the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is going away in Shadowlands, Blizzard has no intent to remove the Auction House vendor from this mount and they removed the Mystic Birdhat's Reforging from the Grand Expedition Yak only because Reforging was removed from the game.
      Mighty Caravan Brutosaur will be limited to the Black Market Auction House in Shadowlands and Blizzard today dispelled rumors about the removal of the AH vendor from the mount.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Trying to figure out where these people keep getting this idea that the AH vendor is being removed from the mount because that has been said nowhere and yet people are acting like this is common knowledge.
      We want to be perfectly clear on this – we do not intend to remove the AH vendor from this mount, especially when some players put in a great deal of effort to acquire this mount specifically for that functionality. Of course, we remember that we removed the Mystic Birdhat’s Reforging from the Reins of the Grand Expedition Yak, but that was because we removed Reforging from the game.
      The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is something that fundamentally alters players’ flow around the world, and it’s a unique convenience, but it’s certainly not essential. We’ve seen how luxury mounts like the Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth started out as something special and rare: a repair vendor wherever you are! They were originally ultra-exclusive and mostly purchased by guild banks for convenient raid use, but then became increasingly commonplace due to gold inflation over time.
      We think that a moderate amount of gold inflation is healthy. It ensures that new or returning players can catch up and participate in server economies without having to put in a herculean effort to avoid being priced out of essential goods. In this case, we want to ensure that in the long run, years from now, we don’t find ourselves looking around and seeing AH mounts that are as common as repair mounts are today.

      The side effects you get from Corrupted Items have changed on 8.3 PTR again.
      As you probably know, Corrupted Items are making their way into the game in Visions of N'Zoth. These items come with a Benthic-like buff and +Corruption, which activates various side effects based on your current level of Total Corruption. Cleansing the item not only removes the +Corruption stat, but also its beneficial effect.

      Blizzard has been working with multiple iterations of Corrupted Items on 8.3 PTR and side-effect ranges. Here's what we currently have on the PTR:
      Corrupted Items
      Items touched by N'Zoth's influence grant great power, but expose bearers to dangers of increasing severity.
      Grasping Tendrils (1 Corruption) - Taking damage has a chance to reduce your movement speed for 5 sec. The magintude of the snare increases with further Corruption. Eye of Corruption (20 Corruption) - Your spells and abilities have a chance to summon an Eye of Corruption for 8 sec. The Eye inflicts increasing Shadow damage to you every 2 sec while you remain in range. Range and damage increase with further Corruption. Grand Delusions (40 Corruption) - Taking damage has a chance to summon a Thing From Beyond, which pursues you for 8 seconds. Its speed increases with further Corruption.
      Cascading Disaster (60 Corruption) - If you are struck by the Thing From Beyond, you will be immediately aflicted by Grasping Tendrils and Eye of Corruption. Recent 8.3 Changes
      Previously, we had the effects activate at 10/20/40/60 Corruption as opposed to 1/20/40/60.  Eye of Corruption previously summoned a corrupted zone, but the eye is much more visible. Inevitable Doom which was available at 60 Corruption was removed and replaced with Cascading Disaster. You can find more details about Corrupted Items here.

      Mechagnomes, on top of having limited customization options, also come with transmog restrictions that you should be aware of before creating one in Patch 8.3.
      Transmog Restrictions
      If you plan on creating a Mechagnome, note that you won't be able to transmog Wrist, Hand, and Feet slots, because their modifications cannot be covered by armor.

      The Legs slot is also somewhat limited because it does not cover up the limbs and Redditor EntropicReaver compared most of the armor to diapers. 

      Except for their Heritage Armor, which looks cool, because it's designed around the modifications, most of the armor looks incomplete on Mechagnomes.

      Customization Options
      Mechagnome modifications can't be covered up by armor, and you'd think there would be at least a toggle to turn that on and off or perhaps more customization options available to the Allied Race to make up for it.
      Unfortunately, Mechagnomes only have four Arm Upgrade and two Leg Upgrade options this late in the cycle, and we don't know if they plan to ship more with the release of Patch 8.3 in early 2020.

      Will you be creating a Mechagnome despite the limitations? Let us know in the comments down below!
