Re: Blizz wanting to remove snapshotting?

As far as Blood Talons goes, I just fucking hate it, it's such a PITA... AND I PLAYED IN WRATH! Agreed. It just flows awkwardly. Clunky is a terrible way to describe something, but that's exactly how it feels. Needing to cast an often pointless heal just to overbuff our abilities is a silly way to ...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Sabertooth : Ferocious Bite always refreshes the duration of Rip . 100 yd range. Instant. Big buff for single target of the talent, course it needs it to keep up with Savage Roar. What does "keep up" mean in this case (since SR and Sabertooth are in different rows)? Also, I like the idea of going S...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

Snapshotting wasn't that important until MoP when it basically became everything all at once. Although I used the snapshotting argument to steal hysteria from our dps warrior a couple times haha. Did they switch TF from direct damage to % damage in MoP or Cata? It's been around since vanilla, but th...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

So again, how much of a difference is reasonable? Personally, much more than this is too much as far as I'm concerned but that's just my opinion. Any is fine. I don't see much of a point in trying to minimize the difference between the best and the worst players. The only place it's going to really...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

You don't see it until WotLK because that's really when people starting playing feral as a dps spec and not just a bear/mangle bot. It was really only complex in Wrath because of the sheer number of buffs/debuffs that had a fairly short duration and all had to be maintained. It got much easier in IC...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

Can you make modifier macros in ff? That's really all I'll ever need to play a game of that style. I actually don't know. You couldn't before 3.0 and I never really looked into it after 3.0 to see if they updated the macro system. It's not a great system overall and has some issues with delays and ...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

I'm not trying to sell it to you... just trying to give a full picture. There is a 2 week free trial, but it only goes to level 20 and that really only takes 2-3 days. You can learn every class and profession on a single character, so you can do a lot with those 20 levels. It's not for everyone, but...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

Someone said final fantasy has complex specs. The downside is that the raid encounters are lame though. That's what I heard anyway. I wouldn't say they are lame, just have fewer mechanics. The savage raids (their mythic) can still be pretty hard and often take a number of weeks for a world first gu...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

There is an awful lot of anger in that, with a lot of words being added to my mouth I didn't use. I'm not sure where this is coming from but let me answer your questions. They are in a mode of "just make it work" instead of make it fun. The perfect examples are the changing of Ashemanes Bite, and O...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

They've clearly put some time and effort into feral animations and forms. They don't see it as a waste of time and resources. All of that is done by a totally different team which doesn't share resources with the systems teams. Totally unrelated. You're telling me Chilton doesn't personally draw an...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

It's been my experience over the years that if an idea is something they don't agree with, they won't bother to even test it let alone respond to the idea. I too get the feeling that from a dev/designer/whatever their "title" is now point of view, unless they see a certain amount of players playing...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I wouldn't say that. I think they need more feedback to make the appropriate changes. I wish I could leave some myself, I don't think we're in a very good place in regards specifically, IMO, to AoE. I think they've gotten plenty of feedback. They just don't agree with it or the changes haven't made...

Re: Is it in Blizzard's best interest to lower feral skill c

I think the premise you are starting from is flawed. For the most part I think Ferals are avoided because we kinda suck, or in a lot of cases are perceived as sucking. I don't think people pick up a spec and drop it because they don't do as well as other people in the same spec. I think they drop i...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

As it stands, we would never talent into it because, well, Bloodtalons is just better in nearly every other aspect. That's most likely how it will ultimately end up. BT has been the go-to talent in almost every situation since it was introduced. I remember taking HotW occasionally in MoP, but BT wa...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

The bleed procs primal fury thing could work if we could store CPs like rogues can with the Anticipation talent. Other than that yeah. I kind of hope we get that anyways. At least the ability to hold a 6th CP even if our finishers continue to use 5. I like the proc, but they definitely need to real...

Re: Feral Druid Blog post discussion

I would like our Druid community to focus our feedback to the devs on this aspect: How to make the PvE gameplay more interesting and avoid this dps comparison race to the bottom. After that's done, we can have our AoE discussions and try to decide if Savage Roar should be changed :lol: I agree with...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Watching the discussion, removing the CPs from swipe and buffing its damage is probably the best solution. The entire reason they gave it combo points in the first place (iirc) was because they were switching Savage Roar from auto attacks back to all damage, and thus needed to be up for AoE. With S...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

The two aren't even comparable. It does direct damage in addition to the bleed, and gives buffs to poisons based on combo points. But if I recall it is an ability that is used about as much as Swipe is for us because it just doesn't compare to the versatility of Blade Flurry. It only buffs poisons ...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

They aren't going to do an AoE finisher. I said this a few times. Should really be a talent similar to Crimson Tempest. A shame. We already have Crimson Tempest. It's just Thrash that costs cp instead of energy. Which is probably the biggest reason we won't see an aoe finisher. We already have the ...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Probably not, but there is room for a potentially interesting aoe finisher in a "SR as a talent" world.

It doesn't make or break the talents for me, but it would've been the icing on the cake.

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

well, my guess is that it will be one key talent to cleave fights. But not be used for max dps in single target encounters. but thats just a guess, I really hope I will get my beta invite again this time.

I won't mind if bloody talons isn't the best. I equally enjoy and hate that talent.

Highly annoying to ruin your dps that way. Specially beca...

Re: Feral Druid Blog post discussion

Here is why I am nervous about Blizz thinking of us as single target specialists again. The fact is we are not single target specialists the the way an arcane mage is, we are SUSTAINED single target specialists. Our single target burst is among the worst in the game outside of 3 minute CDs. It's tr...

Re: Feral Druid Blog post discussion

Well, it is all going to depend on what these new talents are. If they really allow us to modify our gameplay, then we wont need changes too much on the core abilities. Savage Roar as a Talent choice is exciting as much as it is scary. What if it is always the top DPS? Suddenly there is no point. W...
