    This is just absolutely nonsense, corruption is not optional for progression content. It can be 15-20% of your dps just from proc effects alone.

    So I'm forced to use corruption gear now? I only run lower keys, typically +5 to +10's are my regular runs.

    So to remain in the top 2 in the run I need start wearing corrupted gear?

    That sucks.

    in 5s and 10s it won't matter, no, but for anything remotely progression content like mythic raiding or +15s it is absolutely vital to have good corruption effects. It is literally millions and millions of damage. In the average 15 my twilight devastation or r3 tentacles does ~10 million damage, close to Focusing Iris major. On some raid fights, Infinite Stars will do a fifth or a quarter of someone's total damage.

    This isn't even counting the other stat proc ones which we'll eventually be wearing in the corruption budget

    Your problems aren't "we" problems. Here is how it has always worked:

    I am currently at 20 corruption with no visual effect. There's also several people confirming the same, so this scale is not reflecting on live. As I said, maybe the cloak upgrades affect this. I can't really prove it except with a screenshot, and it's all anecdotal, so who knows.

    You are not forced to do anything. Yes, you don't need corrupted gear to clear a +10, you don't even need five players to clear a +10.

    Corrupted gear can help you to increase your DPS significantly, but if you don't know what you are doing it could backfire, you are probably going to end dead half of the run.

    Like I said, I'm pretty sure it's a Remaining Corruption>Corruption resistance scale kind of thing.
    The lower your active corruption resistance is compared to the remaining unresisted corruption, then that scale kicks in

    There should be option to disable it.

    Options are always good.

    Lack of options is always bad.

    I just double-checked. Took off my cloak and essences. At 0 corruption, no effect. At 10 corruption, slight corruption. At 20 corruption, no effect. Ditto for the same total corruption (after resistances) with cloak/essences.

    Basically, as far as I can tell the picture is completely accurate, except for some reason 20-39 corruption isn't showing any effect at all. Maybe it's a bug, maybe Blizzard are going for a "calm before the storm" deal. Either way, it is an option for people who want to engage with the corruption system but hate the visual effects.

    Whoa, dude - out with the big guns dropping threats like that!
    I kinda like it. Very thematic for the expansion.

  11. #51
    I agree.
    Wish i could disable the visual effect as well.

  12. #52
    I wouldnt mind about effect if it actually looked cool,like tentacles around you and stuff,but this is just lazy.

  13. #53
    I don't mind it, helps finding out if someone has way too much corruption and might be a crutch, especially if they take a lot of damage. Prevents having to inspect everyone.

  14. #54
    I agree too. All the effort that went into transmog is nullified by the corruption effect. Everyone in our raid looks the same with corruption about 40. It's pointless to mog the gear, to look for interesting color schemes since everyone will just look the same.

    This thread is definitely winning the sad charts this week.

    Look at this:

    The newly freed Old God is corrupting the world, his powers are altering beings and terrain into twisted void abominations. You, the champion if Azeroth, are using fractions of his power against him and the only thing that stops it from unmaking you is your resistance cloak. Yet as you hunger for more power you willingly dabble further into the power of the Void, beyond what your puny resistance can suppress and it begins the show - the terrible energies engulf you and begin to harm you. But a worthy trade off for the new power you carry.

    However, meanwhile you are whining that it doesn't fit your Shaman theme?

    Lol.

    Use the Irradiated undercoat from Mechagon.

    Not an option in a multiplayer game.

    I expect those who defend this to be the people who don't care about cosmetics much or at all. "I dont care about it so you shouldnt care either! Whingey idiots why you even play this game!!!11?! Unquip your items if u dont liek it!!! No one will care that you do 50% less dps than anyone else in your group/raid!!!"

    The void shit on my character fucks up the appearance. I want it gone. Its simple as that.
    You can still play "barbie dress-up" if you care for the appearance of your character.

    No, you look around your character and other events happening on the screen. The character being in the center of the screen 100% of the time is the last thing you should be looking at when playing.
