Spreadsheet of Target Caps in Shadowlands By Limit

Recommended Posts

49028-shadowlands-class-changes.jpg

As you probably know, many AoE abilities will be capped to only attack up to a certain number of enemies in Shadowlands, and so Max, the GM of Limit, created a spreadsheet, where he keeps track of all the capped and uncapped abilities.

We included some of the more important changes in this post, but for more details, we encourage you to check out the spreadsheet.

MELEE DPS

Havoc Demon Hunter

Frost Death Knight

Unholy Death Knight

Feral Druid

Survival Hunter

Windwalker Monk

Retribution Paladin

Assassination Rogue

Outlaw Rogue

  • Blade Flurry Blade Flurry (Main Hand) is capped to 4 targets, but its activation remains uncapped.

Subtlety Rogue

Enhancement Shaman

Thanks to wordup for fixing most of this.

Arms Warrior

Fury Warrior

RANGED DPS

Balance Druid

Beast Mastery Hunter

Marksmanship Hunter

Mages

Arcane Mage

Fire Mage

Frost Mage

Elemental Shaman

Affliction Warlock

  • Dots are uncapped.

Demonology Warlock

Destruction Warlock

  • All abilities are uncapped.

TANKS

Vengeance Demon Hunter, Blood Death Knight, Brewmaster Monk, and Protection Paladin are mostly uncapped.

Below is a video that demonstrates how the AoE cap looks in practice on the Beta.

What a terrible example of "CAPS R BAD GAIZ". Oh no, you can't solo an ancient 40 man raid pull quite as quickly. What a shame.

 

You've got to be trolling, right?  No one actually thinks that's the impact of target caps?

I don't have strong feeling about any of these except for hunter's barrage. To maintain the fun I've come to expect from playing alongside my hunter friends, it should be:

Capped to 8 targets plus any mobs not yet pulled. 

  • Haha 4

So high end mythic+, bring a tank with a good slow aoe, 1 boomkin and 3 frost mages.   Pull entire instance.

they should make uncapped abilities like the dazar alor dmg trinkets. have a set amount of dmg, split among all hit enemies, but the dmg increases by x% per additional enemy. So that big aoe is still a thing, and the overall dealt dmg increases, but doesnt get out of hand. (The wording could be clearer than the trinkets which just said "increased damage when hitting more", and to avoid people thinking its a multiplicative scaling, they could say "Ability deals 1000 damage split among all enemies hit. base damage is increased by 400 per enemy hit." so its additive 40%)

It would make balancing a bit better, or not? you could make the x value weaker, if the ability should be good on low amount of mobs, but decrease the dmg and increase the x value if its supposed to be a better aoe scaling ability.

And adittionally i think its weird, to have some capped and some uncapped abilities on a class. Maybe the classes should be either with cap completely or not (but uncapped with scaling like mentioned above.)

Confused, what's 'square root' cap?

I believe dmg is divided by the square root of the number of enemies hit when the ability is cast.

I.e. if there's 2 enemies, the dmg per enemy is 2 divided by sqrt(2) per enemy, if there's 3 damage per enemy is 3 divided by sqrt(3) per enemy, etc 

Dmg scaling looks something like this

Nobody cares about tanks? Because capped targets on tanks equal your death. Go ahead and pull another pack while a tank is capped with 5 targets and let me know how you feel. GDruids aren’t even listed and this spreadsheet is being highlighted as some form of reputable source of data? What a joke.

Maybe the author of TFA article since they embedded a video showing that.

      The spellbook has been redesigned in the War Within update, but not everyone likes the new UI. Here’s why.
      Starting with the War Within pre-patch on July 23, this is what the spellbook in World of Warcraft will look like. 

      With no resize option implemented for the spellbook, the main complaint is that the new design takes up the entire screen.
      There’s only one button to resize it, and even then, the single tab still dominates the screen. If only the background were translucent, so you could see what's happening with your character.

      What do you think of the new design?

      Find out what others are planning to main in the War Within expansion!
      With just 40 days until the War Within early access launch, players have been sharing their main class choices on Reddit, generating over 900 responses!
      We've taken the data and created a bar chart illustrating the number of comments for each class (or spec) mentioned in the Reddit discussion and here are the results!


      Most Popular Classes:
      Hunters: 121 replies Paladins: 103 replies Druids: 101 replies Mages: 96 comments Shamans: 58 replies Warriors: 49 comments Priests: 44 comments Rogues: 28 comments Warlocks: 25 comments Monks: 18 comments Evokers: 12 comments Death Knights: 10 comments Demon Hunters: 7 comments The most popular classes are Hunters, Paladins, and Druids and the least popular class people plan on playing in the War Within is the Demon Hunter.
      Hunters are the obvious choice because they are easy to play and have unparalleled survivability. With two pets out, there's barely a chance enemies will ever touch you before they die. The class has good mobility because most spells can be cast on the move. Paladins are favored for their ability to both tank and heal. Many players also love the class fantasy and armor. Druids are often picked for their versatility. You have the whole package in 1 class. They also bring a lot of utility in both Mythic+ and raids. Maybe you're thinking, "Stan, why should I choose my main based on what most people pick according to Reddit comments?" That's a valid question—you don't have to. This post is just here to give some ideas, like when you're looking up names for your WoW character. If you're truly interested in what the pros have to say, check out our recent Mythic+ tier lists from the Beta, created by Petko!
