Blue Posts - Class Feedback
Patch 4.3 is coming to PTRs "soon" and Blizzard is looking to gather feedback on all the classes! Not necessarily for Patch 4.3 but mostly for long term changes, most likely the expansion.

Here is the kind of feedback that is NOT helpful in this particular thread:


  • Concerns that your current damage, healing or tanking is not competitive. While this kind of feedback is often useful, it also is the kind of thing that can change from patch to patch, and so it isn’t as useful for long term vision changes.

  • Concerns that your feedback is being ignored or that we don’t take these kind of posts seriously, or otherwise posting anything that is off-topic or not in the spirit of this thread’s intent.

  • Requests for responses to your suggestions or feedback. The purpose of this thread is to get information to us, not the reverse.

We hope you take these threads seriously, as we’re going to be reading them very carefully. We ask that you take time to think and formulate a useful and objective reply, as this feedback could be used to alter your class in substantial ways.

We won’t be replying here addressing your concerns. This is purely for us to read your answers to the below questions.

Please copy the below questions into your reply and answer each one.


  • What type of content do you focus on? [PvE/PvP/Both]
  • If PvE, what type of PvE? [Heroics/Raids/Other]
  • If PvP, what type of PvP? [Arenas, BGs, Rated BGs]
  • What are your biggest quality-of-life issues? For instance, no longer requiring ammo could be considered a quality-of-life improvement for hunters.
  • What makes playing your class more fun?
  • What makes playing your class less fun?
  • How do you feel about your “rotation”? (Rotation is the accepted order in which abilities are used to maximum efficiency.)
  • What’s on your wish list for your class?
  • What spells do you use the least?

    I guess there is nothing wrong with pretending that player feedback is important as blizzard has said many many times that the game is not designed around what players want.


    It might sooth a few thousand players who believe something they mentioned on a blizzard site actually might get used. However, on the company side, nothing like having many thousands of people brainstorm new ideas and fixes and list them for free on a companies website so they can rake in millions off of you.


    Truthfully, I'm shocked people do it but maybe it makes them feel better about the current situation on the game. blizzard will design the game as they see fit and always have. Our opinions mean very little in the overall scoop of the game. It's not something I can really support, so I'll have to pass on it.

    Dear Loyal Subscribers,

    Since Star Wars: The Old Republic is coming out, we're all pretty much scared shitless over here at Blizzard Headquarters because we know our subscription numbers will hit all time lows rivaling that of this already lackluster shitstorm that we have come to know and love: Cataclysm. So, in a last ditch attempt to make it seem like we listen to our community, we're going to put out these 'Class Feedback' threads even though we already know most the issues with the various class specs but just can't be f*&$ed to fix it.

    Sincerely,
    $$$ Activision Blizzard Entertainment $$$

    PS - $$$$$

    No matter how it sounds, I have to agree - they already know (since months) every single issue every class have... Unless they were ignoring their own forums, which isn't tha much unlikely after all... If only there was some better game out...

    I looked on the Druid forums and the first few replies shows how this will go. The first one is a Druid that only wants his Tree form back. The next is someone that doesn't like how male and female Druid cats look the same...

    Hahahahahahaha, this.

    Also: lol@99% of the Paladin population (including myself) requesting the removal of Holy Power from the class. Amazing class design, jk.

    Somehow I can't find the source for 4.3 hitting the test-realms soon...

    Frozen account, so I cant post on the WoW forums. And for some reason I cannot use my SC2 profile to post on WoW forums either. Oh well, the issues I have with some classes are pretty much the same as "everyone else", so they will be covered. I doubt we will see alot of changes anyway though, have had these in the past - and not to much happened afterwards.

    No one is saying that WOW isn't number 1.

    However, WOW has currently lost more subs that most MMO's ever have. Now they are asking for feedback to which long term players know will never actually get used. Proof of that is from making posts on class forums and class threads as well as being in beta's and on the PTR. Players list and list their ideas and fixes (many of them very good and all FREE brain storming on blizzard behalf) and yet most of the time blizzard changes nothing.

    It it neither worth the time or effort to list anything to blizzard as you will not very likely see anything happen. Same as the last time blizzard did this and the time before that and the time before that.

    Hmmm... well hopefully changes are for the good.
