    For those of us actually testing on PTR, Assassination needed a nerf.

    This entire expansion it's been a cointoss as to what the damage meter will look like at the top. Sometimes with some favorable procs I'll be at the top, sometimes I'll end up a little lower. And that's completely ok.

    What wasn't ok was being on PTR and blowing away every single person without as much as a second thought to what I was doing (As long as there wasn't some 'screw off, melee' mechanic). The buffs are nice, but they overdid it a little bit. I'd expect to see another round of nerfs to assassination before 5.4 release.

    Still no Destruction compensation for removing Rain of Fire from the single target rotation first day of 5.4 PTR.

    /sigh

    I'm fairly sure that since MoP release monk is the lowest played class, at least on EU and rogue's numbers still suprases shamans and warlocks: http://wow.realmpop.com/eu.html

    yeah, you work here >>> Blizzard yeah, i play with my rogue 8 years ago, and i masochist for sure. I was gladiator, achieve all things, and i hoped after this useless rogue times, blizzard will give back rogues.. but no, same happen again. Buff them in PTR, now its viable class, STILL NOT OP as Lock, Hunter, Druid, but viable. After the buff, comes the nerfs, and useless again. Only hope remains.. but its only a game, so i will sleep well. BUT BLIZZARD

    It should be noted that the tooltip change for monks only applies to Brewmaster. They consolidated the tooltips and are having Brewmasters doing the same damage as Windwalkers for the changed abilities. The changes should make Brewmasters more powerful with lower vengeance but less powerful with vengeance due to the poorer AP scaling. To be clear, this should have no effect on Windwalker monks.

    So, forgive me my ignorance and lack of mathiness, but is that a windwalker nerf, or a buff? Or is it great for anyone who has best in slot weapons and awful for everyone who doesn't?
  1. Deen10's Avatar
    all reroll from rouge/monk and blizzard can delete 2 class, 2 problem less. This is a joke, and im not laughing..

    Check my comment that is literally right above yours. It is neither a buff nor a nerf. They didn't change anything for Windwalkers.

    nerf? its not a nerf if we havent got the buff in the first place. Please people, remember this is all just testing and adjustments. they're just tweaking and retweaking to see how everything performs.

    Its like having a racing enthusiast screaming in the ears of engineers WHILE they're testing the performance of a new engine and making adjustments.

    Not really, no. I sleep well thx. And yeah, i like to play with my rouge. I achiev all things in arena, rbg or old times pvp. Last seasons some other class carry me, becuse i was nearly useless, thats a bad feeling when you know your class is very very underpowered. And when i read ptr, i have déjà vu . AS last times, in PTR rouge got buffs and they viable, and when hit live nerf back to 0. so facepalm , yeah facepalm

    if they nerf BACK AGAIN! i will rename CARRYMEALOTAGAIN

    nerfing monks and buffing rogues, aka the best melee (ignore the 5% nerf, it wasnt 30% on live, plus dispatch/envenom buffs)

    I swear the devs are on drugs.
