While I had initially planned not to do another one of these until public testing began, the recent lull in information (coupled with what information is currently public) leaves the community with not much to do besides reflect on what changes we have already been presented with.
In this spirit, I hope to foster a discussion on a topic that, while very relevant to WoD changes, also has its roots in the current MoP paradigm.
Thus, this thread’s area of focus is on the proposed pruning of certain abilities from the Death Knight arsenal.
Questions to consider:
-What specs have you played the the most in Mists of Pandaria? Keeping our MoP toolkit in mind, what abilities (if any) do you feel are the most deserving of pruning? Why?
-What has been your reaction to some of the announced “pruned” abilities for Death Knights? Considering general Warlords of Draenor system changes, as well as what role you see yourself playing in the expansion, why do you agree/disagree with some of the currently proposed changes?
-This thread aims to give individual community members a chance to voice their opinions and experiences. There is no “right” or “wrong” answer when it comes to said opinions.
-Each poster’s goal should be to try to clearly and succinctly provide what feedback they think is pertinent to this topic. Opinions about what other people might post (whether it be factually incorrect, or simply something you disagree with) are less useful.
-Words like “clunky”, “scaling” and “broken” are taboo. They provide no useful context for either the developers or the community to refer back to. Remember: The more effort you put into (succinctly!) explaining your point of view, the better the chances of it being understood and reflected upon by relevant parties.
-This is not a wishlist thread. Please don’t use it as a space to voice what you hope happens; rather try and explain what your experience over this expansion has been, and what your reaction to currently slated changes has been.
-My participation in this thread will be limited. On occasion, I will attempt to summarise and paraphrase good points made by other players; probably asking if my stated understanding of their point is accurate.
P.S. As I did last time, I've posted this on MMO-C more for the sake of EU players, as I do not have direct access to their forums. US players, please do consider posting your thoughts in this thread: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/12945804943#1
