Re: A o E oh My

You advocate fixing Haunt, and then admit that you use a Jademist, and hint that you use the DAH as well.... Unfortunately, if we want to be competitive, we are pretty much shoehorned into either using OP pets, or their counters. I myself won't use or even level my Valk's (have one of each breed), ...

Re: A o E oh My

There is always Blinding Poison to solve this XP I actually love the design of Blinding Poison, and it is probably the best counter currently to the high cd/high dmg AoEs. At 3 round cd it's overpowered, but it's competing with other overpowered abilities--in the current state of the game, 4 rd cd ...

Re: Beta testers: feedback wanted (pet dailies)

Yes, Feign Death too. That actually might be necessary, because in theory they would be able to do this: Queen: RI (swap) King: Fist King: RI (swap) Queen: Fist In which case Ethereal/Deflection would still be cooling down from the first Fist when the 2nd hits you--so you'd have to use FD on the fir...

Re: Beta testers: feedback wanted (pet dailies)

Not on beta, but here's the things that look like they could be troublesome: Idol of Decay : how will Dark Rebirth interact with the UD passive? This seems guaranteed to produce strange results -- my best guess is that the UD passive will override Dark Rebirth and autokill him, making Dark Rebirth u...

Re: A o E oh My

The Good Stuff is 24 to each backrow pet, so 48 total under ideal conditions. Avoiding the front pet seems like an important part of the design (like Pheromones), so I think there's no danger that they'd change it to be Avalanche-like.

Re: A o E oh My

I struggle with any team that requires too much swapping. All I do is lose. I wish I knew how you guys get away with it. I've tried clone-dancer teams and end up dying to the damage being dealt while I'm swapping pets. I've tried Sunlight teams only to have the same issue. Rule of thumb: swapping c...

Re: A o E oh My

I hope it would never come to that power. It could be more in line with Bleat, just be more useful with less amount of pets. Bleat is already 45 base (15 each pet), it's one of the highest heal-per-turn abilities in the game (behind Wish(50), Consume Corpse(50), Healing Stream(48), which all have s...

Re: A o E oh My

Perhaps they need to implement a healing ability that also works like avalanche. Possible. But how much would it have to heal in order to be a proper counter to Thunderbolt/Avalanche? Those do base 40 dmg, so it would have to heal base 45+. That's essentially the magnitude of Wish. So now we have a...

Re: A o E oh My

Rat is interesting, but Refuge is bad: you have to play 2+ critters for it to be effective, and you have to get them all swapped in within 6 rounds to take advantage of it. It's not going to have any impact on the power/popularity of AoE.

Re: A o E oh My

Oh I totally agree that it's a pain in the rear, I just think that Shieldstorm is just like any other ability. It's an AoE defensive, so use an AoE offensive to dispel it. It may force people to use certain pets or abilities to combat the ability, but I don't see how it's any different than having ...

Re: WoD pet news speculation and datamined

Neat. You can see the ability lineups for those tamer pets here (along with all the WoD pets -- there's a bunch more in that list that presumably will be garrison tamer pets): http://wod.wowhead.com/petspecies?filter=cr=3;crs=2;crv=60001#petspecies It looks like those pet charms will have to be plen...

A o E oh My

Thunderbolt is changed on the latest beta build: it's a clone of Avalanche/Carpnado now. It seems like they are moving toward the same general design for AoE abilities, ie they do X amount of damage split among living opponents, instead of X/3 damage to each opponent. Arcane Storm got the same treat...

Re: Speculation on WoD hit changes

The tricky thing with that is the +50% crit from Raindance: after the 55% crits and 45% high hits, there's no room left to see any effect from the -10% from Darkness. Maybe Accuracy (+25% hit) would be less complicated to test -- it's the biggest +hit buff that has no +crit attached afaik (but only ...

Re: Speculation on WoD hit changes

mix an Accuracy Buff and an Accuracy Debuff. Good question. Currently, these calculations are all done additively, ie if you have a +X% accuracy buff and a -Y% accuracy debuff, then you'd have 100+X-Y % accuracy. However it produces unexpected behavior if accuracy goes below 0% (ie you can land hit...

Re: Speculation on WoD hit changes

Won't the changes be very bad on abilities with a high miss chance? The 50% accuracy attacks are still 50%, so there should be no change with those. Assuming a hit debuff acts the same way as a buff it should make all of these large range abilities always hit for the low damage if you have a 50% hi...

Re: Speculation on WoD hit changes

Neat. So a crit always uses the 'high' roll. That makes sense: if you crit a 'low' roll, it would be really close to the damage of a non-crit 'high' roll ( 17.7*1.5 = 26.55 ). Which would be pretty unsatisfying. Definitely the best explanation at this point is that the game flips a coin, and gives y...

Re: Well that didn't take long...

All tcg pets and VH are between 10 to 15k in full EU server .... Yep, it looks like EU has been hit even harder than US -- all the high end TCG/VH are higher in supply than on US (even though most other rare pets are pretty similar). I know of at least one case where a dupe hit EU earlier than US: ...

Re: Speculation on WoD hit changes

Having it be a normal distribution really wouldn't make it feel riskier for the chance at higher damage as you'd very rarely get several high hits in a row or several low hits in a row..... Most hits seem to be either really big or really small not in the middle. Yes, I don't see anything wrong wit...

Re: Speculation on WoD hit changes

Yep, bizarre. There's a couple possibilities. Maybe the game flips a coin, then gives you either a high hit (~24 +/- SD) or a low hit (~18 +/- SD). So maybe it's a 'low' normal distribution and a 'high' normal distribution. Another possibility is that it's the inverse of a normal distribution, in wh...
