Pandemic missing WoD

Hi guys,

I am new to Icy veins and this is my first post.

First, I want to congratulate you for the amazing work that you do. After finding  Icy Veins, using the guides and following the advices on the forum, my dps increased a lot.

 

I am been looking at the new talents tree for WoD in Wowhead and after checking the spells I realized that Pandemic is missing. Do you know if this was a mistake from  Wowhead or Blizzards will eliminate it? What do you think will happen if there is not pandemic in WoD?

 

I been looking through the forums and have not found anything about this topic, so sorry if it have been already discussed.

As I understand it (which could be outdated or wrong), Everybody gets "Pandemic".  Which is kind of lame since it was our Level 90 talent.....

 

Since there will no longer be anymore breakpoints you can "clip" whenever.... but you will still want to do its as close to the end of the Dot as possible to avoid redundant casts over the course of the fight.

Afaik, warlocks will retain the full effect of pandemic. So we can refresh under 50 percent.

Other classes get a slightly weaker version which allows refreshing under 30 percent.

I'd like to add that refreshing at the last possible second likely won't be wise

Depending on trinkets, or rather the unpredictable nature of RPPM, we won't want to have to refresh DoTs during trinket procs.

The removal of snapshotting will make this a DPS loss, as we'll want to be spending the full 10 seconds on drain soul / chaos bolt / soulfire etc.

The entire point of the change is that you can refresh without loss any time in the last 30% of the DoT (50% for warlocks).  The full duration of the new DoT will just be appended to the old one.  Basically a QoL thing given the changes to DoT haste.  Avoiding refreshing DoTs while you have procs will help, but it seems like the skill of responding to procs is moving to a model more akin to Destruction than Affliction- when you get procs, burn your resources/cast your big stuff.  It should, hopefully, mean that proc RNG is less of a ridiculous factor on overall DPS.

Without snapshotting, you have a HUGE window to refresh DoTs free from penalty.  Warlock's is bigger - anyone with a DoT uptime less than 99.5% is bad.  You'll literally just need to create a WeakAura that gets bigger and bigger as the time remaining on a DoT goes down until it buzzes in your face...

 

REFRESH UNSTABLE AFFLICTION DUMMY!

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now.

      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team.

We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
