Are they like, intentionally trying to make Blazing Speed an even worse talent? So now it replaces blink, making it even worse. It doesn't even teleport you forward.Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
Edit: I played around on the PTR and it does, in fact, do the following:
- Replaces Blink completely (Huge nerf)
- Doesn't teleport you forward like Blink does (Depending on what you do, a huge nerf or buff)
- Makes you fully immune to stuns/bonds, removes them as well, and SUPPRESSES snares for the duration (does not REMOVE snares) (slight buff; HUGE buff in random pug BGs, but in skill RBGs/Arenas, this is just a very tiny buff as anyone with half a brain will wait the GCD to stun you. It's simply too short.)
- It really does last as long as 1 global cooldown (Assuming you're a caster w/o Haste or you use Strength as a primary stat) (not a nerf nor buff, but just fucking stupid)
I honestly am shocked that any developer would come up with such a horrible idea. If BLINK replaced Blazing Speed, it might be a little different (but still bad), but this... This is just a hot mess.
TL;DR: Blink isn't being removed. It's being replaced ONLY IF YOU PICK Blazing Speed. Stop saying you're sad to see an ability go when it's only linked to a shit talent.
