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 hope it's not just a place they made for players to vent out about their unhappiness with the game (and hence feel better), and no response from Blizzard needed.

    So what are they saying, all previous comments, gripes and observations on their own forums have up to now been ignored? Unless you are a Paladin ofc.

    Let's hope they put that feedback to good use this time, the last class feedback was nothing more than a PR stunt with GC explaining why we all got it wrong.

    This seems to be useless since they aren't even be bothered to create a special page for his...

    So whats exactly wrong with trying to move forward to combating competition like TOR with user feedback? I think it will great improve the game for those who enjoy it. Just because the attitude change is sudden doesnt make it bad. In fact its the opposite. Blizzard is trying to improve Wow with user feedback. Understand what fans are looking for, and improve our gaming experiance. Theyre pushing themselves as predicted. As competition gets tougher, change becomes more important. Kudos to you blizz! I look forward to future changes!

    If they would make a vote in each country or forum, they would get somewhere. But limiting this kind of feedback to US only is silly.

    The feedback will most likely be used for the blizzcon Wow class panel anyway. (Something they do every year.)

    I'm hoping for some drastic class changes in the next expansion. Not just for balance's sake, but also for freshness. I think some people (including me) would love more toys and mechanics to play with to instill new interest in the game.

    IMO, they are too late asking for feedback now. Enhancement shaman have been below par for a LONG time now, and have by far the most complex "rotation" of any class out there. The problem is, complex = no pay off; so even people who are nigh perfect, are still not pushing the numbers of an average DK/warrior. After pretty much years of people saying the totem system doesn't work in ANY context, they still are the backbone of ALL shaman. God forbid the boss moves more than 20 yards, because you will be dropping your fire totem as part of your rotation.

    And now is the time to voice your concerns. Sure they might not listen, but it's worth a shot and you'll have a much greater chance of making a difference if you participate in this instead of randomly posting suggestions any other time of the year.

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 - $$$$$
    True. This is what they get for putting Tom chilton aka kalgan as the lead developer. Too late for them.

    Damned if they don't, damned if they do. I'm glad I make video games for adults and not sniveling little brat-children.
