    Ghostcrawler confirms: Stampede is broken

    about 4 hours ago, Ghostcrawler posted on Twitter the following message:

    Good news. We found a bug with Stampede being too high only in Arenas. That accounts for why feedback can be so varied. More info later.

    https://twitter.com/Ghostcrawler/sta...94648202125312

    so for all the people who said that Stampede was fine: you're both right and wrong. It's fine outside of Arena's, but inside arena's, it's overpowered.

    once this bug is fixed, BM hunter burst will likely be lower in arena's.

    edit: sorry, didn't see that it was already mentioned in the PvP blog post and in the Stampede thread.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    In before Stampede becomes a bleed dot.

    In before they remove Stampede from arenas.

    Thats an interesting bug though. Wonder how they managed to overlook that.

    Wouldn't that affect BGs too? I'm curious as to how a bug for an ability affects arena only...

    the problem is they fucked over other aspects of the spec balancing around a bug, now once they fix the bug the other nerfs will mean the class was over nerfed. Typical blizzard, they don't fix broken thing before they knee jerk nerf crap due to retarded QQ from bad PvPers.

    idk what bug hes talking about but i do love stampede ... cuz of glyph of stampede

    spirit beast + stampede = 6 spirit beasts ... now if u use your spirit heal while all these are out u get 6 stacks of a hot which pretty much makes u unkillable for its duration

    ive also heard that pet scaling is arena is bugged and they ignore pvp resil or something ? but im unsure as to the extent of the bug GC is refering too

    So the DK who told me "use stampede more brah its gonna be nerfed so op no skill" after I killed him three times for ganking lowbies was a total moron? Good to confirm.

    My guess is that there was an error in the special ruleset Blizz uses for arenas to 'ban' certain CDs like Lay on Hands, Bloodlust/Heroism, and Army of the Dead.

    Nice to know they found out the problem and are going to fix it.

    1st: of all, you don't get 6 pets. For stampede you summon all your stabled pets at once, you can only have 5.
    2nd: they Nerfed/fixed it now so the other 4 pets Spirit mend do 25% healing in stead of 100%, the same as their damage.

    Im suprised it was even allowed in arena seeing as Army is banned.. why should hunters have something similar.

  16. #16
    probably just didnt look at it right in the first place . were seeing this alot at the moment . is this due to a lack of testers?

    Maybe because the spell was literally just released and people are shitting on its parade already. I saw this spell in cata beta files and when they didnt release it I was gutted. All they have to do is fix the damage a little and as for the spirit beast heal, its not like people just go outside walk around for 5 minutes and come across 5 spirit beasts, some are considered challenge tames too.

    But as another poster said the problem is that hunters are going to be damn near useless once again, they already nerfed BW so your pet can be cc'd (rendering you with literally zero damage) and now stampede will get the hammer, not saying it doesnt deserve a nerf but they cant nerf everything else aswell.

    Then they'd have to give hunters a new 87 ability, simply because all the other classes got amazing new abilities, it'd be unfair as hell to keep that from hunters. idk about army, it hits like a wet noodle anyway.

    You do know what Glyph of Stampede is, don't you?

    It was common knowledge that stampede was bugged in arena.. and they realised it only now? Is Ghostcrawler and his team trolling or serious?

    It's either A) not really funny or B) sad.
