Back when dot snapshotting was a thing, I wrote this piece of junk.
hum. The spirit part is going to make it more of a everyone will want it item, but at least its on the first boss. not like we have to wait until we get to dark animus to get a chance for a decent trinket.
I think he's saying MF should always give the range bonus, and the damage strictly be the CD. That is, the CD won't make the range bonus go away (unlike how like AV stops giving the damage when it's on CD).
Another day, another round of tweets with nothing about warlocks. Thanks GC.
Are people actually providing them with PTR logs showing how bad locks (well, destro) are instead of just complaining and trying to tell them that they don't know what they're doing?
Because that's what the shammies (and DKs) have been doing and they're seeing reversals on some nerfs and some slight buffs.
They're probably aware but thinking "if we buff their ember generation, then we're going against we say... if we buff incinerate/conflag then their AoE is too high... if we buff chaos bolt/shadowburn then they're too bursty in pvp..."
I still believe in what Lore said, that is that they are either going to compensate for the ember generation loss elsewhere or they are going to balance us around the lower embergen.
Also, I tweeted Lore regarding this issue and MF being useless for Destro, but surprise, surprise no response...
But I have to imagine if you're tweeting at someone who isn't following you, especially if they have thousands/millions of followers and are probably getting thousands of tweets a day, it's real easy for things to get lost in the mix.
This being on-topic because I want to contribute to the Twitter communication about whether they still intend to compensate Destro for the ember generation nerf, and if so how.
@CountZero, you just write a tweet and include @[TwitterHandle] in it. To tweet to Ghostcrawler about something, you'd write "@Ghostcrawler Is there still a plan to buff Destro for losing RoF embergen?"
How behind is Destro truly? I imagine it'll be viable for Normals still, as any other spec is.
Also, is Aff going to be gemming straight secondary stats still? How about Demo?
The thing that keeps me slightly worried is this.
Its now saturday the 24th, we wont see the new datamined stuff go live on the ptr till earliest monday the 26th.
We get a new datamine on say wed the 28th, it goes live monday the 2nd.
Now that leaves 1 week between what should be a release candidate build on monday the 2nd (or tuesday the 3rd)
Im not sure you can actually leave it much later than that and i can also garauntee they are not going to get the numbers correct for destruction first time round as there is absoloutely no plausable way you can make it even competitive on single target with how much it can cheese ember regen from extra targets.
It does feel kinda shit to be balanced around gimmicks but my biggest problem is that the loss of mannoroths fury (from live) really decimates destructions ability to shine on a lot of encounters.
Destro's single target has absoloutely mind blowingly bad scaling, the meta is crap for us, our 10 min cd is barely worth casting and the only thing that was keeping us in the game (rain of fire ember regen) is now ripped out we are left extremely poorly off.
This gets worse when you consider that the t16 set bonus's are a bit strange, 2 part being rng hell and the 4 part having inverse scaling. The problem comes that when we have these items and have the amp trinket (for predictably unloading burst t14 style) we most likely wont be that badly off, but not a single scaling issue has been addressed yet and thats not a very fun prospect to look forward to.
