    It has been clear ever since Legion that Blizzard has no idea what Marksmanship is supposed to be about beyond Aimed Shot being a long cast time ability that deals loads of damage. And nowhere is this more apparent than in their talent trees. Nothing but random "deal more damage", or "reduce cast time", or sometimes even blatantly unfitting abilities like Murder of Crows or Serpent Sting.

    MM is in desperate need for someone to sit down and consider what the core spec rotation is supposed to be about, because otherwise it will just continue being aimless.

    Yep, even the core abilities clash on concept levels. Are you the careful sniper that takes aim and fires deadly shots or the rapid firing bulletstorm? MM is both!

    And even the cooldown is weird in that it's a noob trap that has lower dps if you spend the arcane shot procs from aimed during it and cap on aimed charges etc, even tho arcane shot lights up.

    Definitely needs another hard look at, spec is all over the place and feels janky af imo.

    Best Blizz can do is speedos and boxers.
    And an option for a tight, pseudo crop top.

    A jockstrap isn't diversity, it's straight-up porn. It would be the same as asking for open/string panties. Not happening.

    Perhaps but I feel like ranged specs are doing better IMO then my own spec.

    Build and M+ testing (also fated raids) on 8-9 week of PTR, no surprises here. We should start expecting patch soon (not season 4 of course - they probably want it tested before switching to 10.0 stuff), if they keep 12 days rule from every other SL patch, earliest dates are reveal this Thursday and patch on June 1st on EU.

  7. #56547
    I have to say I find the prospect of 9.2.5 going live before S4 weird. We were told it can happen, that's true and there is no technical reason it shouldn't happen. But that would mean that part of S3 will be done with cross-faction available and I do wonder if that is perhaps too big of a change to do mid season.

  8. #56548
    Possibly you are right. It's possible that such a drastic change would be too difficult to implement in the middle of the season.

  9. #56549
    I mean, why does it matter? The Horde HoF is finished, and Alliance is essentially finished as well.

    The season is on the way out. Crossfaction ain't gonna change anything.

    It is changing few things, for example Cryptic hero achiev for Season 3 is changing from 0.1% in your faction to 0.1% in your region. Probably Gladiator will have similar changes.

    But I don't get why it wasn't obvious already. Season 3 started March 1st, PTR for 9.2.5 started March 22nd, it's not like patch would sit on PTR for 5 months.

    There are still plenty of time before Q4 2023 release

    I like those race ideas, but Darkfallen seem way more likely than Light undead, especially since they can be both factions.

    Ironic that a spec whose core ability since Vanilla has been Aimed Shot is in aimless state design wise.

Only problem I see is that Darkfallen gives Horde yet another "dark/evil" undead race while also giving them access to more elves possibly (unless there is a faction restriction giving you either Night Elves or Blood Elves). For the Alliance players, meanwhile, it wouldn't do that much. Sure, it gives them an Undead-looking race. But is that what Alliance players really want? The race would have to have some really pretty customization options for it to appeal to the Alliance, I think.

    But part of this is wishful thinking for me. I really want the original races to all have an Allied Race, and it makes sense doing it now.
    Have the Alliance players ever gotten what they really wanted when it came to Allied Races??? Maybe with Dark Iron Dwarves.

    Kaldorei Worgen would probably get a lot of people hyped though.
    True, I'd love a Kaldorei Worgen. Especially if it came with new druid forms.

    What I'd love for worgen is a special mog that fills both weapon and glove slots and essentially gives them claw customization. Fury warrior or combat rogue DW their own claws and tearing zombies to pieces is the worgen fantasy imo.

    Kul Tiran was a good one. There was a lot of pushback on them supposedly being fat, but one the whole I think its one of the more popular ARs.

    Other than that though Alliance really should have gotten the Ankoan.

    So I think this is actually part of the encrypted armor set that (accidentally?) wasn't encrypted. I'm new to datamining, but it appears within the same ID range as the encrypted armor set, and its tagged as "ArmUpper" along with the other 3 files that look like this. The encrypted armor set has tags for the rest of the armor "LegUpper" "TorsoLower" and so forth.
