    Exclamation Video: Moonkins in PvP are overtuned

    Hey there MMO-C,

    After many battlegrounds I finally received my 4-set for my balance spec on my Druid, to discover how disgustingly overpowered it is.

    Please take a look at my video where I express my concerns at the class which is dominating every BG with it's new 4set:



    We need to make Blizzard aware at the pure ferocity that Moonkins possess with this new ability.

    Please post constructively.

    It would be nice if you could post what the ability does.

    He's being sarcastic for the sake of endorsing his crappy video.

    Ehem.


    Woooosh.

    I think the joke was that it is, indeed, a useless 4 piece.

    The ability in question is Astral Communion, which during a complete channel will take you from 0 Lunar/Solar to an Eclipse state, or from Eclipse to 0. The 4-peice allows it to be channeled while moving. I don't play a Moonkin, so I reserve judgement on its usefulness.

    You mean I have room for text now?

    I don't feel bad for people who play inferior specs of a class and then try to compare that inferior spec to another class that performs a similar role.

    You've got it all wrong. The moonkin four-piece bonus is awesome.

    There I am, in Eye of the Storm, I have the flag, running for my life, warriors are chasing after me, trying to faceroll me into the ground. NOPE. Starfall.

    STARS. FUCKING. EVERYWHERE.

    I'm hitting these warriors for like 15k every hit. They're crying. A mage comes over and tries to silence me but is immediately critted to 98% health.

    Then I do it. I seize my destiny.

    ASTRAL MOTHERFUCKING COMMUNION.

    I'm chaining them, then HOLY SHIT! LUNAR ECLIPSE.

    More stars from fucking nowehere! YOU CAN'T COUNT THESE STARS.

    ECLIPSED stars.

    I cap the flag and bask in the plaudits of my team.
    Did you like the above post? How about sending me a dollar? I'd have adverts here but apparently that'd break ToS.

    Why doesn't Blizz just give you one spec? Eliminate all the "right spec" stuff? Oh wait, they've been claiming the next xpac will do just that for like 4 years now.

    I dunno, it's like a really terrible version of the old "Troll Regeneration" post.

    The PVP set bonus are a total mess. How it's possible that some classes are getting huge PVP Power bonuses on damaging CDs and some other classes are getting very, very minor things? At least keep those balanced.
    Shadow Walk : Significantly increases Stealth effectiveness for 6 sec, but causes Stealth to be nerfed to justify its usage. In addition, it uses old Enveloping Shadows icon and has no sound, animation or spell effect to show that the skill is actually doing something.

    I think 4-set bonuses are fine. 25%+ focus regeneration or 70% movement increase after heroic leap is easily comparable to being able to run around while dancing as a boomkin.

    moonkin good in pvp whaaaaaa?

    I just dont understand why that 4-setbonus is not build in astral at all, its not like it will be some overpowered crap, and it would be probably more usefull in pve like in pvp...

    Or rogues get 10 extra energy on 2-set while hunters get 3200 PVP Power during Rapid Fire...
