BDKs were broken, are broken now and will continue to be broken until blizzard nerfs them to pieces. Other tanks are completely irrelevant in top keys.
So when are they going to comment on MW Monks being absolutely BROKEN in PvP?Ring of peace making melee specs useless against them... being able to heal themselves almost instantly... able to spin around, yet again negating any use for melee... having too strong healing spells AS WELL AS the jade statue...Why am I the only one that seems to notice this?
a horde main who says AT needs a nerf?/faints
So, you want to change a class because its good at -one- part of the game?
Well, it seems that an AoE dispel Racial is considered OP, then. As it should be a class spell.They should instead remove Arcane Torrent and bring back Mana Tap. Giving it the same effect but making it Single Target instead of AoE.
maybe now that a top streamer has mentioned horde bias blizz will make a change since it's a streamer and streamer > player these days it seems
Id like to add that Marksmanship Hunters see no actual play in high mythic plus and need a buff asap but no one is talking about it
My guess, Blizzard will attempt to nerf Blood DKs, and fail because they don't know exactly *why* bDK are great (they need to read this analysis), and they will also nerf Brewmaster Monks (because, well, frankly Ion already said they felt both bDK and Brews have too much survivability).What they will succeed doing is removing Brewmaster so DKs can take up 100% of the top tank spots... I see it coming.
For everyone crying out "why nerf Blood DKs? Why not buff the rest to match them?", it's design reasons. Blizzard intentionally was working to REDUCE the survivability of all tanks, to make healers a more required thing. And they did that... for 3-4 of them. Blood DKs are the outlier. They are existing outside the design philosophy of the expansion. Sucks if you jumped on it as FotM, but it's gonna get smacked down. In this case, it's about bringing this one spec back in line with the design goal, not about taking all the other tanks OUT of said goal. Would I like to go back to Legion Protection Paladin, where I had significantly higher sustainability with a % scaling self-heal? Yes, I would. Will it happen? Not a shot in fel.
I would say that other tanks broken and they need buff, tanks that dies all the time because lack of saves, lack of stats for mitigation or lack of self-healing is a problem. BDK is a normal performing tank, mb a bonestorme is overpowered, but totally its the icon of how tank should perform. The brainless jumping of dhs or rolling monks - shows the way you want to play guys? BDK is a slow juggernaut, that stays face to face with danger and powerfully defends his group and thats cool. Class design just perfect to have fun playing it.
I’ll start by saying that I haven’t played Alliance (ever, because they are scum and deserved Teldrassil) for this from this day i hate you as horde scum,but outside the game i like your analize. Oh and be sure i will be there to slip the throat of your presious queen in no time :)
So blizzard looks at leaderboards and determines that a class is overpowered. Why dont they also take a look at the logs and take note of the disparities there? I play a pally healer and in comparison with monks and priests there is literally no contest. That should surely account for some class tuning as well...
