Zandalari Troll Racial Nerfs Coming Soon

Recommended Posts

35675-zandalari-troll-druid-forms-in-bat

Zandalari Trolls currently have the most powerful and versatile racials out of all races in World of Warcraft. Patch 8.1.5 nears release and we still haven't seen any nerfs to Regeneratin' Regeneratin' or the Loa passives.

Regeneratin' Regeneratin' - Although this racial has seen nerfs already, paired with abilities that grant immunity (Divine Shield Divine Shield), the Zandalari Troll heals to 100% over 6 seconds on a 1.5 min cooldown, which is still overpowered. Throughout the 8.1.5 test cycle, Blizzard increased the channel to 6 seconds (from 4) and made it so that damage interrupts the channel.

Embrace of the Loa Embrace of the Loa is one of the most unique racials added to the game and requires player interaction. There are 6 shrines within Dazar'alor, each granting a different and powerful passive effect, which can be changed every 5 days. Other racial abilities like Night Elves' Touch of Elune Touch of Elune currently pale before the powerful effects of the shrines.

  • Embrace of the Loa Embrace of the Loa - Choose your Loa to gain a powerful effect.
    • Embrace of Akunda Embrace of Akunda - Your healing abilities have a chance to heal their target for damage.
    • Embrace of Bwonsamdi Embrace of Bwonsamdi - Your damaging abilities have a chance to deal damage Shadow damage and heal you for 100% of the damage done.
    • Embrace of Gonk Embrace of Gonk - Increase movement speed by 5%.
    • Embrace of Kimbul Embrace of Kimbul - Your damaging abilities have a chance to cause the target to bleed for [ 3.000 * damage ] over 6 sec. This effect stacks up to 3 times.
    • Embrace of Krag'wa Embrace of Krag'wa - Taking damage has a chance to grant you health additional Health and Armor.
    • Embrace of Paku Embrace of Paku - Your abilities have a chance to grant you 4% critical strike for 12 sec.

Community Manager Kaivax confirmed on the official forums that nerfs are planned for Zandalari racials in future 8.1.5 builds.

So, it has been multiple weeks since the racials came out and everyone assured me that the troll racials were so OP they would “obviously” be nerfed.

I am still waiting…

Not only is regeneratin’ extremely OP…but the LoA blessing is also very OP.

Take Embrace of Bwonsamdi (Your damaging abilities have a chance to deal [Attack power * 0.25 * 1 * (1 + Versatility)] Shadow damage and heal you for 100% of the damage done.)

Compare this to the Night Elf racial of 1% to crit…yeah.

Blizz. You don’t have much time left. Show us that you are not completely inept and nerf Zandalari racials already.

I’ve been following this subject quite closely throughout this PTR.

While I don’t think you’re going to see changes in the very next PTR build (coming … you know – “Soon”), I do think you’re going to see some further tuning in a PTR build after that.

I would usually move a thread like this one over to the PTR forum, but I think I’ll leave it here with this: As soon as I know exactly what’s been changed for testing, I’ll post about it in the PTR forum.

It's gonna end up with every Zandalari Troll's Loa ability dealing like, 5 damage, healing for 10, or give 1% movement speed. And that's at 120. Sure things needs to be fair and balanced, but I just don't trust they won't go massively overboard.

It'll obviously be nerfed after people have purchased race chang....I mean, after release when they've collected enough data to say definitively that there's a balance problem

Wow... "Show us you are not completely inept," is flat out disrespectful with their word choice...such a scummy thing to say towards the developers. It's unfortunate that someone who voices their opinion in such a negative way like that, is representative of the player base.

 

They obviously play Alliance 😂

Welcome to Beta for Azeroth

I too am very mad that they test things on the PTR and nerf them before they come to live. Like I get that people aren't happy with BFA but are you REALLY mad that they're nerfing something while it's still on PTR? That's literally the point of the thing

I'm just implying that they are so overpowered that it's confusing why they were added onto the PTR in such a broken state. I mean, they are so OP compared to other racials to the point where I wonder what was going through the balance team's minds during implementation. Yes, it's good this is on the PTR and not live, but the fact that it was released as powerful as it was is concerning; makes me wonder if they'll make the same mistake on live in the near future...

One thing:

PTR =/= released.

They test things there, PTR has never been balanced and I am completely sure they are aware of the fact that this should not got live but the priority to fix the numbers is low. It works (most important part) and tuning is the last thing to do before release.

Fun fact, if it was an Alliance race no nerfs would happen at all 🙂 .

what are you talking about? Human's racial EMFH was nerfed to the ground, it is useless with a shared cooldown.

      In Rise of Azshara, Tauren will be able to embark on a quest to get their Heritage Armor. Check out our preview of the set!
      Requirements
      You need a level 120 Tauren character and be Exalted with Thunder Bluff to start the quest chain. You must also complete the Stay of Execution Scenario.
      Set
      The Tauren Heritage Armor Set includes 8 items:
      Ancestral Chieftain's Armor Ancestral Chieftain's Grasps Ancestral Chieftain's Greatbelt Ancestral Chieftain's Headdress Ancestral Chieftain's Hoofbands Ancestral Chieftain's Loincloth Ancestral Chieftain's Mantle Ancestral Chieftain's Wristbands The giant totem is part of the chest armor, similar to the Highmountain Tauren Heritage Set. The bulky eagle shoulders look really great, what do you think?

      Gnomes and Tauren will be able to embark on a new quest which rewards Heritage Armor sets for both races in Rise of Azshara.
      Requirements
      So long as you have a max level character (Gnome & Tauren) and are Exalted with the appropriate faction, you will be able to start the quest for the new armor when Patch 8.2 goes live.
      Do keep in mind that Tauren will also need to complete the Stay of Execution scenario before the quest becomes available. Blizzard mentioned that it will be available shortly after Patch 8.2 goes live, so maybe they're planning to timegate the War Campaign somehow.
      Gnome Heritage Armor
      One Level 120 Gnome Character Exalted with Gnomeregan Tauren Heritage Armor
      One Level 120 Tauren Character Exalted with Thunder Bluff Stay of Execution Scenario Completed Blizzard (Source)
      Rise up and stand tall with two new Heritage Armor sets—one for gnomes and one for tauren—coming in the Rise of Azshara content update.
      Players with maximum-level (120) gnomes or tauren* who are Exalted with their faction (Gnomeregan or Thunder Bluff respectively) will be able to embark on a new quest line for each race to learn more about their history. Once you complete your quest, you’ll gain a new Heritage Armor transmogrification set unique to your race and be able to show off your pride.
      *Tauren will also first need to complete the War Campaign quest Stay of Execution, which will be available shortly after the launch of Rise of Azshara.
      Rise up to any challenge and show off the cog-nitive prowess of gnomish technology as you get ready to bolt into action in Mechagon and beyond.
      Stand proud as you reconnect with your ancestors through a spirit journey to honor your tauren heritage.
      Begin your journey by visiting the embassy in Orgrimmar or Stormwind after Rise of Azshara arrives.
