Cyclone now has a 30 second cooldown for Feral Druids. In addition, it will now share diminishing returns with Banish, Seduction, Bind Elemental, Hex, Freezing Trap, Wyvern Sting, Gouge, Sap, Hibernate, Paralysis, Polymorph, Ring of Frost, Repentance, and Quaking Palm.
Are you kidding me?
Is this the end of feral? Why did they nerf cyclone so much for ferals? Now we can't even cast cyclone after an instant cyclone to predict someones trinket.
A 6 second CC on a 30 sec CD.
I'm just speechless.
Edit: My suggestion would be to revert the DRs and remove the cooldown, and reduce cyclone duration by 2 seconds when used in conjunction with Predatory Swiftness. Though, when used with NS/hardcasted it will keep its original duration, OR to give us a maelstrom-like mechanic. Every 1 combo point reduces the cast time on our next spell by 20%.
Second edit: Seeing as many people rather argue with me (which is partially my fault, I'm sorry) I'd like to ask you guys to instead of going hardcore on argueing with eachother about why cyclone is OP/not OP etc and whatever, just give us your suggested change to cyclone.
My mentality behind cyclone with a cooldown not working, is because it removes the reward behind hard-casting cyclone a second time on the same target or on a different target to prevent further heals on him (CC low HP target > CC heal after) which is one of the key things I've seen ferals do in arena. Remove that and how do you think ferals will be able to score a kill?
My current suggestions (all seperated from eachother):
-Reduce cyclone duration by 2 seconds when used in conjunction with PS.
-Change PS into a maelstrom-like mechanic. 20% less cast time on next spell per Combo Points used (wont help much actually)
-Make it so PS can only be used with 5 combo points, which forces us to use at least 175 energy by spamming mangle and 190 by spamming shred (no crits, though). This alone would reduce the amount of instant clones we get by a bit because many ferals gamble the RNG for an instant clone.
-Give Predatory Swiftness a 10 second ICD on cyclone so you can't chain several instant cast cyclones during Berserk burst.
