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

I'd much rather play the snapshot game than the Bloodtalons game. Since Blood Talons is nothing but a snapshotting mechanic what you are saying makes no sense. Snapshotting buffs felt like an opportunity for me personally, while Bloodtalons feels like a straightjacket. Since Blood Talons is complet...

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

Where did blizzard espouse Tab Rake? We pretty much came up with that ourselves because it was really the only option.

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

If the damage spread had anything to do with getting rid of temporary stat buffs being snapshotted they might have actually cared about the gap. But really it prevented them from being able to design cool trinkets and abilities. So when in doubt make open design more possible, it's going to win ever...

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

(doesn't matter that snapshotting was around for a while, it wasn't really THAT useful to pay attention to until then). Snapshotting wasn't that important until MoP when it basically became everything all at once. This is exactly what I was talking about with point 4. Mangle and SR (not in cata) we...

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

A few things. 1. Snapshotting has been a thing since BC. It wasn't a new mechanic for MoP, and it wasn't some type of "new" playstyle. Until WoD bleeds ALWAYS snapshotted everything. MoP had Rune which made us super over powered. Not only did you need addons to help show you what the bleed differenc...

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

Suposeadly the Guardian affinity should allow you to tank a heroic if you have a decent healer. I would assume you can tank adds in raid encounters, but not bosses for more than your 100% dodge cooldown plus SI. Resto I don't see us being effective at all in any burst healing situation because we on...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I feel the ability is really meh.

We already have like 140% run speed. If the next group of mobs is far enough away, we just hit travel form. Giving us a little more of something we already have the most of, which only happens when we are killing a lot of mobs, seems almost unnoticeable.

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Helpful Feral from Discord (Homebakedxyz) found this out:
1. Proc'd from killing a mob.
2. Proc will stack up to 3 times (ie you kill 3+ mobs before leaving combat).
3. Proc lasts 30 second or until you enter combat.

I hate to sound pessimistic, but I bet blizzard would reply to you saying its just a matter of 'tuning', not any redesign.

All of that is done by a totally different team which doesn't share resources with the systems teams. Totally unrelated.

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

I think the biggest problem is Blizz doesn't seem to see this as a problem. Actually I see it more the opposite. They know it's so tight the only way would be a ground up refresh. They have pretty much painted themselves into a corner which they can't get out of with out having to start all over. A...

Which premise are you talking about? I was mostly building a case for explaining something that has been observed for years (removal of complexity). You assert that people would be willing to play the class if it was less complicated. I don't agree that premise is accurate. I believe people care le...

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 it...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I feel (could be wrong) you're overestimating Rake's contribution to our DPS on alpha (someone on alpha would have to verify assuming there's damage meters). With 0 tuning done, and not even into beta, trying to use current Alpha numbers is really premature. The damage sku that exists today is very...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

I find these numbers highly suspect for a few reasons. 1. You have only one set of numbers and they look like they are sustained dps. 2. It also only looks like you are presenting the dps of those specific abilities instead of the effect of the whole rotation. You need to look at how this damage is ...

Re: is over 50% crit too much?

That is not the crit cap. That is just when FB is 100% crit on a bleeding target and Shed is 100% during Incarnation. Bleeds and autoattacks are still benefiting from only 53% crit. At this point Crit is less important as it is prior to 53%, but it is by no means capped and still valuable (ie still ...

Re: Datamined Legion Talents

Well, as far as how it'd help, something like a talent that makes each tick of Rake apply another Rake with the same remaining duration to a random un-Raked enemy within 8 yards would give us a degree of "fire-and-forget" AoE ability. That is, we could Rake one or two enemies in an add pack and the...
