    Based Holinka



    Here's to hoping more retardproof get-out-jail-free cards will follow.

    Hopefully some retardproof get-someone-in-jail free cards will follow.

    Maybe they'll give fears, charms, and snooze effects a cast time now. That seems fair.

    Hell yeah, awesome change!

    Wonder what will be next, Berserker Rage? Or maybe they will leave that alone since it doesn't work on group members?
    It's almost always the wrong argument to compare yourself to the highest DPS specs out there. "Middle of the pack" is actually where everyone is supposed to be. -Ghostcrawler

    •Yes, this is a roller coaster. Our process is to try things out and iterate if we don't like them. If the churn offends you, just hang on for another week or two.

    Good change, long overdue. Now do this to every other CC breaker and reduce mobility and we've got ourselves very healthy pvp gameplay.

    I agree with this change: put's much more emphasis on balancing your CC breaker abilities witheverything else you can do. CC is a very negligble mechanic ingame right now which can instantly be avoidedby using either the insignia or your class' CC breaker, and since it's highly unlikely that you'll become the victim of a devestating CC during the period afterwards (because usually the big CCs hits first which is instantly negated by the two breakers, and the big CCs have long CDs), CC is just really a 1 or 2 second inconvience instead of the game changing mechanic it's spposed to be.

    I do not post here much, but i have to say: Awesome change, especially since i believe all of those CCs are now casted as well. Brings just a little bit of skill back to playing Shaman.

    Good change, unless they aren't reworking other things aswell. Rather see Tremor removed completely and give shamans some personal gimmicks..

    Holinka will leave it alone since he mains Warrior. Warriors have been doing extremely well since he became lead PvP designer...

    OT: Tremor Totem nerf was justified, surprised they waited so long.

    Psychic Scream and Howl of Terror would like a word with you :-)

    Both of which are extremely easy to predict if you're playing a Healer. A Warlock or Priest running at you from 70yards away is a pretty tell-tale sign that they are looking for a fear.


    OT: Amazing change. Tremor is far too strong in it's current state at this brings back the skillcap of pre-tremoring fears.

    Based Holinka indeed.

    Also I don't see how this is a GREAT change. Why not just nix reset? Maybe in some cases you'll be able to pre-tremor a fear/sleep/charm, but for the most part people will just use it as follow-up now.

    Meta shift will just mean that the priest/warlock will just sit on top of the shaman until they drop tremor. Though do spriests even have psychic scream anymore?

    With how strong melee are on beta at the moment, sitting ontop of the enemy healer will effectively be a deathwish.

Find an excuse to let one of these off the chain, and I personally guarantee, the bad guys won't even wanna come out of their caves. Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration... the Jericho.

    Great news! And as others have said i also hope this will be the same for berserker rage or other faceroll-abilities of the sort.

    Looking forward to WoD pvp even more
    Epic!

    One word: Finally!

    Wish list:
    Nerf cyclone (my main is a rdruid yes): DONE
    Nerf tremor totem: DONE
    Nerf Will of the Forsaken (yes, I'm horde): DONE
    Nerf Human trinket racial: Still Waiting
    Nerf fear: DONE
    Nerf instant casts (pom poly, ns clone/hex): DONE
    Nerf Demonic Gateway (my partner is a lock, I'd have to be blind not to see how OP it is): DONE
    Nerf subterfuge: DONE

    Many of us PvPers are actually delighted to what promises to be one of the best PvP expansions we've ever seen

    PS: berserker rage isn't that OP....is the same thing as mages being able to blink stuns or druids to shift polymorphs...maybe a reduced duration but certainly no need to a huge nerf imo.

    Brings back the days when tremor was used to help your team-mates moreso than yourself.
