Great to see a COMPLETE REVAMP of the PVP system! However, by reducing critical strike and healing in PVP situations balancing classes becomes even harder because you could potentially have two DPS classes with off heals that can do more damage and healing than say a team with a designated healer and DPS. (Boomkins or Monks for example) Now I'm not mistaking defensive CDs with direct healing abilities. That is something entirely different.Now I know this is only a small speculation on arena matches but that applies to large scale games like RBGs. I'm sure they are considering this as it would render healers useless. I know they are not way behind on this expansion's release like they have been before. I think we should see some game changing ideas this expansion!
Sounds like a lot of good changes, thanks for the well presented and formatted and informative page here =DWas surprised to read a lot of the PvP community members are being put in as NPCs, but none of the oldies. Where's Mute, the creator of Roguecraft, or Maydie, one of the most famous warriors, I think, to play the game, or Unbreakable, Lainetime =pSince starting to type this comment I have spent the last 2 hours going back through those classic videos, fun times ^^
REMOVE ALL CC!
I"m only a PvEer, so I probably can't judge, but this sounds awesome. I really feel like trying out PvP in WoD..
Why couldn't they make proper matchmaking for everything instead of skirmishes/arenas?I don't play arena because my friends don't want to. Why couldn't there be LFD/LFR kind of system for arenas where I could just click "play" and get a teammate and play for rank (not like the skirmishes)?
I like all these changes remind me of TBC/WOLTK but,I would like that blizzard puts the conquest pvp gear with the rating arena making it more difficult pvp gear :)
Oh! Very nice
Dat warrior gear...I'M IN LOVE <3
Why don't warlocks have shoulders on T17 yet? They're the only ones not to...discrimination! ;-;Edit: The skulls are pretty neat though :D
I'm happy they're nerfing CC. In MoP, it's not about skill, but about who has the most CCs xD I remember a duel prot war vs prot war and it was endless...CCs all the way, as well as loads of hp, I had to respec to a knockback to push him down from a cliff to win...Well, on-topic again, PvP looks very promising :D
I fail to understand how priests always get really bad buffs particularly Spriests, why their selfhealing still isn't buffed and how blizzard is nerfing them yet again taking away Psychic Scream which as been a priest move for the longest time. I am hoping at least with the DR changing and less CC in the game Spriests won't be so damn squishy but i highly doubt that one. :/
Succubus: Seduction and Shivarra: Mesmerize now have a 30-second cooldown. mmm no bad
Can we talk about how paladins always get the coolest gear? I mean, look at those animated shoulder pieces! DA-A-YUM!Why can't druids have nice things? (My QQ will envelop your souls)
New Dk tier is rediculous,, /cry ;(
One annoyance I hope they change is getting instantly flagged when invited to a pvp realm for world bosses. If you're originally from a pve realm you most likely don't want to flag doing pve content such as world bosses. It makes it such a pain especially when people camp the bridge to ordos.
I've played GOD comp since wrath im aware of how strong they can be WITH heals and peeling in 3s but outside of it is what annoys me. They use to be alright in previous expansion but they've just kept getting rid of nice buffs for them -.-
I loved many changes...we survived is these changes bring challenges, news is always good and the pvp needed changes.
