y u do dat?
Incoming nerfs to ret will actually punish prot and holy deeps as well. /facepalm
Rohan covers the details here.
I like to dabble in PVP here and there but lately it seems that Blizzard is having a much more difficult time balancing for both aspects of the game. What makes a class or spec viable in PVE makes them overpowered in PVP.
Ret mana regen is a good example of this: in an arena fight, their unending supply of mana definitely gives them the leg-up on the competition. So let’s take that away from them so they don’t seem quite so invincible. But now the poor raiding retadins (yes they do exist) lose their ability to output sustained amounts of high dps without OOMing.
I’m hoping that Ferraro is right and this latest change to JotW is revoked as sort of a “we’re giving you something by not taking it away”-move by Blizzard. I usually have a lot of faith in Blizzard’s dev team, they obviously have copious amounts of talent at their disposal, but I just can’t help but feel like we’ve been here before. Why is Blizzard so afraid to make such an iconic class powerful and fun to play–and leave it that way?
