To be frank, I don't play Beast Master, so I'm not fully aware of the "consequences" of this legendary, specifically, to the rotation. I read that it resolved focus issues, but our goal should be for these legendaries to augment gameplay, not to provide a necessary change to the spec such to that it cannot perform without it. Feel free to enlighten me. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Fire is not a garbage specc without bracers, they should really just buff the specc so people can get over this fucking wrist.

    Yeah they are. And this is coming from someone who got the bracers, imagine how it feels for the people who don't get to play with that op item and in high-end guild their mages get benched if they don't have it. People sim like 50-80k dps increase from bracers and personally I had ~70k dps increase from that item alone. Such numbers break the game, because a really good player will get outperformed by a decent player just because the decent player had more legendary luck. Maybe they don't have to balance the spec around having wrists now because fire single target dps without wrists is currently quite sad on live.

    Oh come on, the Shadow Priest Belt isn't >that< good. It only appears to be because all other Legenadries are shit in comparison to it.

    Poor Shockadins. All that investment in to separate builds, trinkets, gemming and so on... undestandable though, seen one Holy Paladin do 500k burst for a 8 seconds then 250k sustained on M+ boss.

    No guild has ever benched mages because of lack of wrists.

    I'm pretty sure they would bench a mage that didn't wear wrists. :P

    No wrists as in hands just attached to end of arms? Everyone knows you can't cast spells if you cant rotate your hands around daintily

    I am finding it funnier by the day with these legendary "adjustments"....didn't they have a beta for the game, I mean we can all agree the legendary system sucks and I don't think a legendary item is something everyone gets (although getting one from a super rare boss drop isn't exactly "legendary" either) and some of the class balances they are making are due to legendary's which I think would kill those that don't have them

    I look forward to the shit storm that hits the forums when 7.1.5 goes live

    What a load of sh1t! You're nurfing the Shadow belt why??? The only shadow item needing a nurf is the God damn wrists with void bolt becoming Aoe, it's going to hit like a truck! Small minded window lickers at Blizzard.

    You farm a BiS belt that makes shadow playable and then they ruin it, fu Blizzard, enjoy my unsub

    Indeed, the bracers will be stronger now with Aoe VB, and legendary wise yes garbage. I mean the ring spreads dots to few targets, that should be all in x range.

    I'm fully expecting a total riot.

    There was the exceptional opportunity to add a legendary to SP that gives us Aoe DPS, hell no! Terrible game made even more terrible thanks to window lickers from the D3 team.

    I guess it'll just make the new trinket or Cloak more desirable...

    Tell me how its not op. If fire mage hasnt got it his pyro hits %50 less (at live %20 chance × %300 more dmg (4x total dmg) = %80 overall buff). Yea its not op bracer buff your pyro dmg %80 yea yea you are right. Change its proc chance to %5 than fire mages who hasnt got it can feel they are competitive

    "To be frank, I don't play Beast Master,..."

    To be frank, I don't think anyone at Blizzard does. It's such a profoundly broken pile of poop atm. After 15 years of development not only have they been unable to make a functional pet system but it's actually gotten worse.

    LOL at all the fire mages crying, they boosted the damage back and they still cry. LOL mages play at 50% skill lvl and beat players playing at 90% but mages think they should be able to afk and still top the meters LOL at mages please nerf them harder

    Lucky for me my mage is Frost spec.. But it is funny how the bulk of the whining so far in this thread is from Fire mages maybe their FOTM comes to an end.. muahahahahahaha

    wtf! they dare to nerf my only shadow priest leg on the PTR?!

    Look, how devs trying to nerf all pure dd classes dmg again, how old was that blizz interview then they said pure dd classes should do 5%-10% dmg more than hybrid classes?

    Why have pure dd classes still in the new year 2k17?!

    And i bet hunters are only popular because of hunter pets i see no other reasion, while the masses enjoy hybrids like palas and druids, most played classes in any class presentation charts!

    lol i decided to no longer play as a rogue alltogether, 1,5 months ago. Playing assassin in mythic+ just sucks, pvp sucks due to ridiculous rogue templates killing all yoru stats and abilities, and there are indeed only raids left, where you do not need anything but assassin anyways.

    But thats not good enough for the rogue class, most spec mechanics need rework and the numbers corrected, too. This abomination of a class is no longer a rogue.
