Classes Death KnightImportant question about Multistrike: If I use Icy Touch with the glyph that dispels and multistrike procs will it dispel twice?
)RE DK Loving Blood Caked Blade for Unholy, looks great - anything similar coming for Frost?
Not really; Frost isn't supposed to favor Multistrike. That said, for that feel, Razorice is slightly similar (and has been buffed) (Celestalon
)DruidWithout an affordable swiftmend, rdruids are locked into refreshing harmony via healingtouch (i.e. forced to use HT once in 20s)
In the world of Warlords healing, that's expected (and very normal). (Celestalon
)Plans to re implement glyph to starfall that reduced its radius by 50%? I can see the huge range being a problem in dungeons.
Glyph of Guided Stars is for you in that situation then. (Celestalon
)What about adds with small amounts of hp Im thinking like alot of adds spawn they need to be killed quickly I can't dot them all
)As it stands, MoC is strictly superior to Germ/RG, because the later add restrictions, while the first removes them ...
Moment of Clarity is likely overpowered with current tuning. It's not designed to be "strictly superior", obviously. (Celestalon
)How is MoC being op related to Germ/RG being awful talents? As long as MoC is slightly useful, you won't pick the other two...
A) If you think Germ is an awful talent, you're not thinking of all the potential situations. B) RG probably needs to buff SM. (Celestalon
)HunterLnL changes: Trying it out now, I like it a lot. One Q: what happens at lvl 90, patch 6.0 with 0% multistrike?
There's at least raid buffs that provide Multistrike. Agree that it's awkward for now, but perhaps worth it. (Celestalon
)Are there any plans to making Clefthoofs and Talbulks tameable for hunters?
Still working out final implementation of the WoD families. Thinking maybe a Stag family w/deer, talbuk, MoP stags, etc. (Muffinus
)MageHow exactly does conjured food count as a survival ability? You never get a chance to sit and eat in arena. Debuffs don't help.
That's not what that section of the patch notes is about. Most are unusable in arenas, if you notice. (Celestalon
)Most of what are unusable? Debuffs?
The sustainability section that you're referring to. They're to aid with questing and other soloing. (Celestalon
)But you can't eat while in combat. Any class can get food from a vendor so it isn't comparable to sustain. of other classes.
Most of those are primarily used out of combat. And no, Mage food is better. It's for questing/soloing, as I said. (Celestalon
)Mages have a lack of over time healing compared to every other class. a 40% heal from ice block every 5 minutes is underwhelming
Yes, and they're designed to *avoid* damage, not heal it back. They have burst absorbs, damage reversal, Invis, Nova, etc. (Celestalon
)So are these avoidance-abilities being retuned for warlords, because right now my absorbs aren't comparable to healer ones.
Nor should they be. You shouldn't be soaking up that much damage. (Celestalon
)are frost mage mastery Icicles going to snap shot off frost bolts, or scale to the damage of a frost bolt at the time of fire
Still snapshot; nothing's changing with that. (Celestalon
)will icicles scale to the current level of incanters flow or will they snap shot off a frost bolt that was buffed by flow
Icicles are based on the damage that created them. (Celestalon
)MonkAre WW monks really suposed to feel this slow? im energy starved all the time with no buttons to press level 100
If you're the type of player that wants to fill as many GCDs as possible, you should favor Ascension, Haste gear, and Chi Wave. (Celestalon
)Priestshadow priest self healing feels very lackluster atm. maybe have instant and in shadowform PoM back? or renew?
No, but DP is changing to cause healing equal to 100% of damage done (DD and DoT). (Celestalon
)while questing, you barely get a tick of DP before mob dies. Biggest issue I had with Shadow. Healing on initial cast?
....I'm fairly certain that you just responded to the answer with the question. (Celestalon
)Does that mean even the initial cast will do 100% healing of that damage and not just the rolling dot?
Ah, there's the missing link, I think. "DD" = Direct Damage. Yes. (Celestalon
)Is it intended that Clarity of Power priests remove Devouring Plague immediately after applying it?
No, you should not do that. Better to Mind Flay during Devouring Plague. (Celestalon
)Since Multistrike is supposed to be H Priest Attunement/best stat, can H Priest Multistrikes proc EoL and/or vice versa?
Multistrikes will be able to Echo. (Celestalon
)ShamanWill Elemental retain its niche of 3-5 target cleave with the change to mastery?
Absolutely. It works on chains. (Celestalon
)Will Elemental Blast work with the new mastery and would it add to fire or lightning stacks?
Yes and yes.(Both) (Celestalon
)WarlockWill the new Warlock talent: Demonic Servitude work with the existing Warlock talent: Grimoire of Service?
)WarriorI can accept HS being removed. Don't like it but accept it. Still a 3 button rotation (4 w/ rare RB proc) is too much.
I question why you think RB is rare. It's more frequent than CS, even naked. With even blues it's twice as frequent. (Celestalon
Spent a lot of time this evening playing on Fury. The 0.5sec Wild Strikes really make rage capping easy to avoid. Rage feels in your control (Celestalon
It can definitely still get away from you if you don't pay attention to it, but you certainly have the tools to manage it now. (Celestalon
I look forward to the feedback from people who give it a real try in the next build (day or few, I believe). (Celestalon
)How will 0.5sec WS work for me, as I play with 180ms if I'm really lucky? Most of times I get 270 ms. 0.5sec going to be bad.
That won't actually be bad at all. You're not GCD capped so slight timing offset doesn't matter, plus huge responsiveness upgrades. (Celestalon
)Any thought to adding a defensive aspect to Prot Warrs' Ultimatum procs? It just seems outdated to only be an offensive proc.
They have enough defensives; it's nice to have a proc that you know you don't need to worry about for defensive value; a bonus. (Celestalon
)On the Warrior Prot: Unyielding Strikes: Will using Ultimatum consume the stacks?
The Unyielding Strikes buff isn't consumed. (Celestalon
)WS would have to massively beat out RB in DPR to compete, and at that point you'd say, "why have both spells filling the role?"
WS doesn't beat RB in DPR, but it does beat it in DPCT, handily. And if you're GCD locked, DPCT starts mattering a lot. (Celestalon
)5 rage + 0.5 gcd WS? sounds painful to play with high latency.
The -25 thing was just to illustrate that it's untuned, not any indication that that's remotely correct. (Celestalon
)There are a lot of abilities requiring defstance. Is it intended that Gladstance be excluded from using them, or just not update
Gladiator Stance is for DPS, but restricted from swapping, so will likely count as both Battle and Defensive. (Celestalon
)Warlords of Draenor Stats Does Multistrike benefits from + %damage buffs?
)I'm assuming like all tertiary stats, multistrike will not be in abundance so it won't be something we should bank on
Multistrike is a secondary stat, as abundant as Crit or Haste or Mastery. (Celestalon
)it's seems like pvp power and resilience build into one stat . So very awful...
PvP Power/Resilience & Versatility have a common effect but overarching design is very different. (holinka
We didn't like Resilience because it got so large that spells felt VERY different in PvP/PvE. (holinka
We didn't like PvP Power because it was meant to compete directly with ilevel, which led to a lot of confusion. (holinka
Versatility is a secondary stat on PvP and PvE gear and competes with Haste/Mastery/Crit/Multistrike. (holinka
)is it possible for Versatility to actually outperform other stats? ex. Frost Mastery, Subtelty Mastery etc.
Since it has damage reduction, it is tuned to not be as good at increasing damage. (holinka
)up to now we've been told "not as good as your best stat". Is it going to actually be dead last, or somewhere in between?
It has benefits that aren't related to damage so it is subjective. But it won't be your first or second best stat for damage. (holinka
)Challenge Modes CM's are too item oriented, 30s tries then 10m wait for banner cd is no fun, could you either make cds reset or items unusable?
Agreed. In Warlords we'll be much more careful about which items are allowed to work in CMs. (WatcherDev
)PvE With the removal of feats for SoO in 6.0 will this mean the Kor'kron Juggernaut will not longer drop guaranteed upon 6.0?
Slightly different handling there -- the mount will drop 100% of the time on Mythic until Draenor opens. (WatcherDev
)PvP whats the thought behind adding those crazy pvp-only items to Ashran? variety and more action packed? some stuff of it scares me yo
."Crazy" items, spells in Ashran is an opportunity for us to "rewrite the rules" for a short time. It is about variety. (holinka
)By "short time", do you mean the abilities granted are temporary, i.e. you have to find another book later?
I mean during the life of the expansion, when Ashran is relevant content. (holinka
) will skirmishes reward Conquest? So we can gear there and then do rated Arenas after?
The conquest acquisition rate will likely be slower than normal unrated battlegrounds. (holinka
)Any chance on having a window to swap specs during arena preparation in WoD? Sometimes certain specs work better against classes.
It would just end up as a mandatory ritual in arenas to bluff you opponents. (holinka
)I know low lvl pvp isn't priority, but any chance we'll ever see gear options for pvp leveling (honor purchased)?
We want to expand on it, but we won't have the time just yet. (holinka
)will conquest/honor gear have random tertiary stats on them?
We haven't come to a decision on tertiary stats and pvp gear (holinka
)PvP Gear-grind for alts will be better but still potentially tedious when facing conquest-geared opponents in BGs
40 ilevels leaves room enough to feel progression in your gearing without the gap being too large. (holinka
)Think a lot of people would prefer to have less of a sense of progression for sake of alts not being facerolled in BGs
I'm sympathetic to the alt concern but I think 40 ilevels from no gear to full gear is reasonable. (holinka
Especially when there two tiers of gear in between top and bottom. (holinka
