Rip buff?

Post by Daidrak » Tue Mar 05, 2013 2:54 pm

The 15% buff to rip isn't listed in the official or unofficial patch notes. removed or overlooked?

It's more likely they just forgot to put it in the patch notes than they changed it without saying anything. There's a ton of other things missing or inaccurate in the patch notes.

Any confirmation that the Rip Buff did go through?

Rip is still doing 1713+0.242*AP per tick (before mastery) at 5 CP; the buff didn't make it live.

Edit: confirmation

Rip buff reverted. No explanation.

Trying to link to the official confirmation apparently caused the forum to automatically remove my earlier post, but yes, the buff was reverted -- rip is doing the same damage now that it did before the patch. Confirmation that this is intended is on Rygarius's twitter.

Due to issues we had with spam I believe most posts with either hyperlinks or with lots of URL links need to be approved. I have done so. I would have seen it sooner, but I am home sick today.

That makes me sad. I guess I'll console myself with this ball of yarn.

While I would have liked to have the buff I still don't feel totally gimped. The only things that blew me away on Jinrok were the Rogue and DK. I was right next to or ahead of everything else. The rogue, however, was way too far ahead of the rest of us (we both ranked similarly but he had me by over 40k dps). That said on Horridon and Council I almost never even go to rip so I'm not much missing it. Thrash and rake spam is ugly and not fun ... really wish we had a better AoE mechanism. On the other hand our interrupt is invaluable on Horridon thanks to the charge.

Very classy and professional Baltimore Colts move by Blizzard.
