    All I enjoy is healing in pvp. That's all I've done this exp pack. Go figure. Soon as I find something I enjoy, Blizzard drops the hammer.

    Healing debuff hotfix is very common at the end of expansions. Makes it easy to decide not to go back to pvp though.

    It needed to happen, maybe at whatever rat league the people complaining are playing it didn't. But when every single game goes into dampening above like 2-2.2k there is a problem and this is by and far the easiest way to remedy it. A+ Blizz.

    Big deal. your 50k heals are now 42k. Healers will still be very strong. It just wont take a few days to kill one anymore.

    As a healer me and a buddy started just quitting matches if they stretched too long cus it was literally better to just take a lose and move on then waste all that time for a single match

    Needed change. Requiring deep dampening to win anything just can't be good.

    Heck yeah, if the games going to go 20 minutes and all you want is points, I drop it near 5 mins lol. If you're going for rating - 3's is the best to get higher rating in so.. But yeah, I'm main heals this xpac (the free level 90) - I'm 100% ok with such a small reduction, even being a holy pal lol. Also: get ready for qq for gearing changes inc lol

    Definitely needed, healing is at the point of the expansion where it is able to outheal pretty much all damage 1v1.

    There's also the issue of how it affects hybrids in non-healer specs, and tanks. How much of a hit are they going to get from this change? It looks like Elemental got another middle finger from Blizzard, Ret gets the same, and tanks get a hit to their survivability.

    Also, Starsurge and Haunt got damage nerfs in PvP, so Affliction's 15 seconds of fame may be gone.

    Healing nerfs are inevitable given how your healing abilities dramatically increase with every raid tier.

    You know what the real problem is? Delaying comps like LSD (Or 2.0) and shit like caster cleaves. Mass cc. Stuff like that is FAR worse.
    You're a towel.

    lol, thanks for making me start the day with a good laugh, mmo baddies.

    This nerf just made 3 healing classes completely unviable. You already didn't go into dampening vs priest/monk/druid. So 3 classes nerfed into the ground and made completely unplayable over 2k, nerfed 1 class right (shamans, since they needed at throughput nerf) and didn't nerf paladins enough.

    In fact paladins were already by far the best healer, and it'll be even worse now, since this nerf hit them the least hard cause they depend on half a dozen cooldowns and not simple healing output.

    Would it have been so hard to just nerf shaman (resto and enh) healing output by 10%, nerf holy paladin cooldowns a lot harder, and don't touch the other 3?

    Good change, sick of healers ruling the world and dragging things out for ever.

    About damn time. That nerf should be 30%.

    what do you mean? healer+dps vs. healer+dps? Because i have never killed anyone in WoD PvP as a healer facing dps 1v1. The former? Well hasnt this been always the case? Like since TBC?

    Guys, lets just not pretend that this is THE n1 problem in PvP, okay? Healing and starsurge are not a problem atm, everything else is.

    What's really funny is that this change is mostly going to hurt hybrid heals, not really pure healer heals. Don't even want to think about shadow priests who will have both shields and heals nerfed, while already sucking major ass in the survivability department. Another well done change by Scrublinka.

    [Hotfix in testing] All healing and damage absorption has been reduced by 15% in PvP combat.

    Its not a healer nurf..its a healing nurf...not the same thing..

    DPS with heavy healing will get hit the most like Freal? Right?

    a step in the right direction. heals in general have been too strong for a long time now.
