Cause a drunk parrot living on the dark side of the moon clearly points out flaws related to the use of empirical data over assumptions. Cause according to said parrot no such thing as confirmation bias exists and all data contradicting ones own opinion must be false!
(Hence anecdotal assumptions / data must be superior to all available empirical evidence)
Playing my Warlock after playing my SPriest for as long as I have kind of feels like getting behind the wheel of a really nice SUV. A really nice SUV that doesn't give a single fuck about avoidable raid damage and will absolutely decimate anything in a 20 yd radius in front of me.
And if you ever need a real laugh, just check the Warlock forums. The biggest fear of Warlocks in WoD? They might be as bad as Shadow is currently.
I hope mages get hit with the nerf hammer too (mage tears are tasty as well). I'm tired of outplaying the mages on my team, but them doing 50, 60, 70k more dps and then having them constantly go "why do we have a shadow". Something is just wrong when the mage dot uptimes are in the 70s and 80s and yours are in the 90s and they still out dps you. I know mages aren't dot classes, but IMNSHO, how well they can maintain say living bomb says a lot about how good a player they are.
If only we had such luxury!
Yes, single target damage is mediocre on a good day, sadly
I still enjoy SP for the utility it brings to a raid - void shift, grip and those nice off heals! ~ I love seeing my PoM bouncing around; it gives me the feeling like I'm helping, even though I am just a sea weed in an ocean of holy priests
It's getting close to a year of SoO. If you're not on the cutting edge of progression, your class won't matter. 99% of the time you are getting sat is because you are not up to par skill wise. People out gear any content so badly at this point that it doesn't matter what class you bring. There's no real point to complain our numbers, it's a waste of time. People should be looking forward to warlords now, not complaining about something that won't change.
I think balance changes will be made significantly easier with most of our healing utility gone. I'm very much so looking forward to warlords.
