    I'm just wondering if this is designed with the usual healers-don't-play-the-game-mindset Blizzard puts into their content.

    Let's say the effects affect only the player and also can only be seen by the player.
    playing a healer, voidzones will be fine but spawning adds that will take ages to kill will be a red flag for using corrupted gear at all - just like benthic gear for healing and a lot more

    Not only are those effects so ridiculous that you'll never use them, they're brutally unfun. I don't really want my gear fucking trolling me.

    This will be great only if you have a chance to get corrupted gear from heroic + raids.

    So Blizz should handhold players even harder?

    No, they won't, because top guilds actually know how to play and avoid the negatives, but the large majority of players that pug are going to suffer one way or another from the shit players that already make pugs shit to be in because they refuse to take 15 minutes to do some light reading or use their brain a tiny amount to not stand in mechanics.

    You'll just die and everyone else will be fine, the debuffs only hurt you. You'll just get kicked.

    Also the add isn't target able and will just run up and melee you then disappear.

    Is it really so strange that people have differing opinions in a game with likely millions of players? Corrupted, for top/decent guilds that actually put in effort, is great, if I was still raiding I'd think it would be kind of fun because I'd be playing with people doing it properly and avoiding the negatives. For people who pug, which I do now, the shit tier players are just going to make pugs even worse than they already do. Even if I do it properly, bad players are going to die or make the healers job that much harder.

    I don't understand how people can say, corrupted gear is shit? Have u guys already tested it?
    Have u seen that u get a legendary cloak, new azerite traits, new essences with corruption resistance on it?

    Wait for it to be on the ptr, test is and than lets talk about it.

    For a company that doesn't want us to use 3rd party websites to figure out if gear is good, this seems like a good way to make us use a 3rd party website to know if gear is good.

    "Blizzard never gives us choices, yada yada. Blizzard never comes up with nothing new, yada, yada." Bad players will always be bad players, kick and move on. Since those void zones and adds are random and affect ONLY the player that causes them. Whats the problem? Healers should let those people die because either they dont care about their corruption level or they are being a nuance to the group, just like Tanks let DPS die if they pull groups.

    If your guild raid is having people aka a tank with so much corruption gets 60% damage taken increased and 60% healing reduced, then maybe the RL or GM need have a talk with that tank. If you are running a pug whatever, then maybe use the tools available and inspect, armory people before putting that key in M+.

    I’m also worried if the corruption will make the gear useless. Imagine getting your BiS trinket and then having it forge negatively. A lot of #feelsbad incoming.

    I thought people didn't want this game catering to the lowest common denominators all the time.
    it is not any different

    seriously i did not think that i would see a thread worse than the one about flex raiding in MoP where people did not udnerstand 5 pages in that it was winged


    the damage is not random it is dependant on your corruption level
    the corruption is not random it is determined by the ilv and/or bonus
    you choose whether to keep the item with the bonus
    are you good enough to dodge shit and keep your dps up
    that pool you spawn will only do like 30k a tick at low corruption (btw that is not 60)
    it will become deadly if you stack it to something stupid like 60

    is the boss patchwerk style?? then maybe you can handle a few aoe adds spawning

    getting the item cleansed is fine

    the only thing you will be forced to really think about is "hey i have a normal piece with a corruption bonus but i just got this heroic piece without a bonus....is the bonus enough to still keep it as an upgrade??" which will rarely happen

    "oh hey i got this heroic piece which is an upgrade from my normal piece and it has a bonus...but it is really tough to use it in X content so i will use my currency to cleanse it"

    or

    "hey i just got another version of the boots i got from last week but these have a corruption bonus on it that will be useful in X boss encounter....i will keep it for that encounter but still wear the other one during situations where it would not work for me"

    are the most likely outcomes

    if you want to cleanse it because you dont like it then that is fine but overall it is a system taht allows players to get an upgrade randomly but still have access to the best loot by doing the hardest content

    another instance of players not liking something and wanting a positive change to be removed because it inconveniences them just like the stupid ML change because "muh ninja looting" and "i got threatened to be kicked if i didnt trade the ilvl upgrade"

    So - you want something that gets gradually better, but doesn't get gradually better.

    Apparently there will be a way to cleanse the corruption, removing the corruption negative and positive.

    Boycotting Blizzard is like a lactose intolerant person boycotting milk purchases to protest about cruelty to cows, then eating his hamburger whilst doing so.

    for mythic raiders titanforging has been and always will be shit

    lower level players praised it because hey higher ilvl

    removing that has caused a shift

    plus side though (and i mean this as a HUUUGE plus personally) no more useless items titanforging to a level taht they cant be traded even though it is a bigger upgrade for another person

    i can now run on my pally tank as a healer loot spec and trade trinkets again no matter what
    and if anyone has a problem witht taht then just CLEANSE IT

    I like it. Surprised that devs can still implement interesting features for BfA.

    Corrupted gear isn't for stupid players who are prone to standing in bad shit, or don't realize they're being beat on by an add. It's meant for high teir players who like high risk and high reward play style. Wait till you see INSANE DPS from people with almost full corruption, draining all the healers mana lol.

    Can confirm after testing this on PTR with my self and a group of friends, the effects only work on the person who is corrupted and has no effect on other party members.
