Btw when running the upscaled dungeons in Beta, you can use Tarecgosa's Wrath if you have it. Everything upscales to 100 from what I hear.
DWTR reminded me that we don't have a special multistrike effect. I know not all specs are meant to have one, but it would be great to have something to spice up our gameplay. Any ideas?
I was thinking maybe move the instant casts procs to MS and remove them from the "single target attack" of the moonkin form perk, that has to much potential for abuse.
Damnit. Moonkin is looking too good in pvp. They tend to overshoot the nerfs when we're even slightly overpowered.
Not like it matters. Blizzard doesn't even try to balance 1vs1.
Would you prefer getting instant casts while running away or getting hit? Forgive me for my pve-ignorance but my people thought the point of PvP was to not get hit...
It also makes it an offensive mechanism instead of a defensive one. Can counter the long casts when you need to focus someone asap.
I'm confused: WoD DR table posted today by Blizzard makes no mention of Solar Beam....did they remove it? The official patch notes keep saying:
"Solar Beam no longer Silences a target again more than once per cast. Additionally, the Silence effect from this spell now shares Diminishing Returns with other Silences."
Been playing more beta (all streamed http://www.twitch.tv/vexxee). Currently 94. Obviously both on the 90+ and the 100 premade server you're scaled to 100 for dungeons, giving you all the 'perks' and the lv 100 talents (now you can choose a lv 100 talent from 90+ tho).
So I did another dungeon, and instead swapped from flare to balance of power. This worked so much nicer, you can dot each mob, and then cast once on each mov every 4-6 seconds to full replenish it. This was great for aoe and big pulls. Due to how often I was dotting with very little hardcasting time (remember even without hardcasting your eclipse swings so you'll be trying to double dot) I didn't feel it was really worth casting starsurge for inc hardcast damage as I wasn't always getting them off during the following eclipse [ie casting starsurge in lunar as you're about to leave is useless as it wont but wrath you'll need to recast it past mid way] so I was using my charges for starfall instead, and I felt very strong.
But for the past two days I've been trying questing with stellar flare. It fits questing so much better! With the eclipse bar resetting on almost every mob, being able to pull with a neutral stellar flare, then cast starsurge for empowered lunar, 1 starfire then moonfire feels like a perfect open, you then get to starfire again and flare, sunfire and starsurge before spamming wraths. Even in 512 ilv gear things were dying way before I got that whole rotation off, and honestly on live with 587 ilv I wouldn't besuprised if flare + moonfire was enough to two shot things.
Flare feels like a really nice single target rotation, likewise balance of power makes keeping both dots up on multiple targets easy and fun. Not really played with Euphoria yet
Hm, so ursol's vortex just lost a ton of utility in PvP. Wish they'd make bash un-parryable already..
Edit: wait a tick, aren't they removing expertise? Shouldnt bash be much more useful now for boomies in PvP?
That said you do have a fair point that there is a possibility for content "abuse". i do not know if it possible for blizzard to make it only proc from player opossed to npc/we.
doing 26k dps on the mythic dummy, only 19-21k with other classes :3
