Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

Re: Warlords of Draenor™ Alpha Testing Begins

I agree, the 90-level tier looks very unfinished with placeholders. Overall no big changes for feral complexity, however I'm very happy about the quality of life changes to AoE CP's, shrangle, prowl movement, rejuv, berserk etc. Bloody Thrash looks like it could become the go-to talent for most figh...

Re: Has anyone considered the boomkin lvl 100 talents?

I doubt it will work that way. The logical way for them to do it would be to give fractional ticks a equally fractional chance at proccing effects (eg: Shooting Stars has a 30% proc chance, so a quarter tick would only have a 7.5% proc chance). Also, even if that's not the case, you're only gaining...

Re: Celestalon: Berserk is one of the strongest CD's in the

I think I should rephrase cause reading what I wrote sounds whiny and I don't like that. I would like the designers to pick out they want us to be and try to work with it. Give us an interesting mechanic that will stick around. I believe the mastery-scaling of Berserk is a valid concern and I see n...

Re: Celestalon: Berserk is one of the strongest CD's in the

Maybe he meant it in a WoD context where bleeds are devalued?

Edit:

Still, even if they're devalued bleeds will still be an integral component of our dps and berserk is just a "band aid" to our core problem of long single-target ramp-up.

Bearpelt posted a similar thread some time ago and he had nearly the same issues you do: low CP roar usage, trying to improve bleed management, botched openers (you used a a pre-TF'd Pounce on one of your Malkorok kills) and mediocre energy management leading to energy starvation when trinkets procs...

Re: At wit's end... again.

Also, if you're doing the TED opening on Garrosh - once you have established your RIP and have extended 3 times - right after the ferocious bite if berserk is still up you can rake a nearby warbringer and rip him. Due to how extensions work (ie. they're "saved" to your character and not to mobs) you...

I'm still a little confused at FB usage. Right now I'm seeing it as an energy dump at 5 CP with Rip, Rake, SR and Thrash up at more than half their duration at good snapshots.
Add to that being at 80+ energy and you're rock solid.

By using the Advanced Opener if you're into that kind of stuff (and have a tank without down's syndrome).

This will allow you to take advantage of some of TED's RNG properties while still remaining dps neutral That's kinda what I am getting at though. It's inconsistent, and it's not DPS neutral.

Re: Need some Trinket Advice please

1. It has a secondary stat on it so swaping it out while using Rune is a major pain in the ass. Having AoC and Haromms be swappable is very nice depending on fight needs. You can maintain your AoC + TED swap by just not optimizing the extra mastery from TED and use your AoC reforges (it will still ...

Your average time per cast on Savage Roar is about 26 seconds which indicates low-CP usage. Ease up on your Ferocious Bite and non-OoC thrash usage for now until you manage to get it up at 4-5CPs consistently without letting rip and rake fall off. sourceName = "Ripshawn" AND (spell in ("Dextrous", "...

Re: Need some Trinket Advice please

Personally I would use AoC over TED as TED starts high but goes down every second so unless you are right on point and lucky with procs, it's hard to maximize the trinket. The passive Mastery is negligible so I wouldn't worry about that. I disagree. Keep in mind that TED procs twice as often as AoC...
