Pandemic missing WoD

9 posts in this topic

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As I understand it (which could be outdated or wrong), Everybody gets "Pandemic".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!

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Sindorei Council, a family-friendly and socially active guild has been active since 7/24/2007 (BC drop), currently 7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, and 5/10 NH.  Seeking DPS (notably ranged) for completion of Heroic and preparation to move on Nighthold.  
      We are not a hardcore progression guild - have never been and don't seek to create that atmosphere.  We are an incredibly welcoming social guild with a core raid component of very skilled players who have enough real-life going on that one night/week (occasionally 2) is what we push for.   We've reached our current raid progression on essentially one night/week. 
      Are you a good fit?  If you enjoy playing your class very well, are reliable to be on at the given time(s), yearn for a fun PG atmosphere in Gchat and Discord with mostly adults, and feel like one (occasionally 2) night per week is ideal for the time you want to put into raiding then we may be a good fit for you.  We help others get better and push people to have fun in guild, raiding or not ( be it through Questing, M+, WQ's, Roics, Pet Battles, etc.). We know our members' backstories and strive to make our guild a family.  Very active FB page and Discord.  
      Schedule:   Current main core raid night is Thursday from 7:30 EST - 10:30 EST (Bloodhoof Server time).  Sunday nights are an alternative night for us.
      Progress:  7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, 5/10 NH
      Loot:  All Personal - hand down to people who need 
      NEEDS: 
      - Ele Shaman
      - Mage (Fire or Frost)
      - SPriest
      - Boomkin
      - Hunter
      - Arms Warrior w/ Prot offspec (another skilled dps that is comfortable off spec as Tank works well also (Feral/Guardian, WW/BM, etc.)
      Interested?:
      BTAG: Lorienawk#1319 or Mango#1525.  
      Thanks and Happy Hunting!

      Nomads is a social guild with a semi hardcore mythic raiding team at Quel'Thalas/Azjol-Nerub, our guild is one of the oldest on the server with 8 years under it’s belt.
      Our Progress: 7/7M EN, 2/3H ToV and +12-14 Mythics.
       
      We are a friendly social guild and We like to enjoy the game and see all of the content it has to offer.
       
      We do all of the mythics every week and also lots of m+ runs.
       
      Our raiding atmosphere is super chilled, we don't tolerate toxicity and bm of any kind.
      As a mythic raider you’re expected to be here for raids, doesn’t have to be all of them every week, but we need to know we can count on you when we need you.
       
      Our raid times are (server time): 
      Wednesday/Thursday/Sunday => 20:30 - 23:30 (mythic raids)
       
      We have bonus raids for farm content:
      Friday => 20:45 - 22:00 (EN heroic)
      Saturdays => 20:45 - 22:00 (EN normal)
      Mondays => 20:00 to 23:00-24:00 (ToV HC run)
       
      The team looks really strong and we’re want to fill out some missing spots in our Ranged DPS department,
      We’re mostly looking for Hunters/Mages and could also use a strong Warlock/ShadowPriest.
      For healers : any very good healer would do, pref Druid/Priest.
