Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

It does. Essentially you choose among

10% variance (normal distribution), 20 base dmg
20% variance (bimodal distribution), 21 base dmg
30% variance (bimodal distribution), 22 base dmg

If you right click PBT's menu icon, there's a 'automatically save teams' option, 2nd from bottom.

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

I however would like to know when Bite becomes better. ... 378*1+283*4=1510 ... If the opponent has <1400 health (and you only spam Tail Slap), Tail Slap performs similar or better in any situation. This is not quite true. What if the opponent has exactly 300 health? Tail Slap has a 50% chance to k...

Re: WoD and Pet battle mechanics?

Don't get me wrong, I like the idea and the concept of new pets, but I was hoping in more substantial additions to pet system. Yes, there's nothing fundamentally new. It's a missed opportunity imo. Also, although there are plenty of new pets, there are very few new abilities, which is what really d...

Re: PetBattleTeams addon and tomorrow's launch

Curiosity, but what function of PetBattleTeams did you find lacking in Rematch? Simplicity. PBT is seamless, it acts as an extension of your normal pet journal. You don't have to open a separate addon, you don't have to click 'save' all the time. Rematch has more features, but I'm happier to manage...

Re: Cursed Birman and Widget the Departed thoughts

Devour... well I just can't seem to play correctly with this(and similar abilities). They do pretty low damage but if they kill they heal for alot. But I'm sure it is only me, but I have a hard time timing it correctly. Devour is a 'win more' ability and is pretty bad against real opponents. You ne...

Re: Decoy buff or AoE bug?

Oh no this is a new change with 6.0 - AOE attacks used to be considered 3 attacks, now they are considered one and thus, are now perfectly and OP countered with Decoy. It's not all the AoEs, it's only Avalanche/Thunderbolt/Whirlwind/Arcane Storm and Cleave/Carpnado/Grave Destruction when we get tho...

Re: Decoy buff or AoE bug?

Yes. Avalanche/Thunderbolt/Whirlwind/Arcane Storm now use the 'split X dmg among opponents' mechanic, instead of 'deal X/3 dmg to each opponent'. This type of AoE now gets completely blocked by 1 charge of Decoy/Frost Barrier, presumably because these put a 'block' as a field effect (but it still wo...

Re: About Bronze Whelpling

Probably just badly coded. It's not quite the same as Alpha Strike. Alpha Strike does 15 dmg, then 10 more if faster. So there's no problem if you're same speed, it just does 15 dmg and stops. Arcane Slash has to decide whether you're faster or slower; if slower, do 14 dmg, if faster, do 25 dmg. It ...

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

Not all 0.55 should get the *1.5 modifier, only 0.05. No? Oops! Yes, bit of a screw-up on my part: Crush, Crush, Crush, Crush = 4*((0.45*16) + (0.5*28) + (0.05*1.5*28)) = 93.2 Hawk Eye, Crush, Crush, Crush = 3*((0.2*28) + (0.8*1.5*28)) = 117.6 So it's actually not bad. And not sure if typo or not b...

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

Hawk Eye looks quite strong, as a crit will always roll high. A P/P Quiraji Guardling should be able to push a beastly Crush with that. Crush, Crush, Crush, Crush = 4*(0.45*16 + 0.55*1.5*28) = 121.2 dmg over 4 turns Hawk Eye, Crush, Crush, Crush = 3*(0.2*28 + 0.8*1.5*28) = 117.6 dmg over 4 turns *e...

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

Reducing randomness will still be the best choice if you have a high win rate, like it was with the previous system. While choosing randomness will be the best choice if you have a low win rate. However, the matches will be more random... On a large timescale, it's actually less random. For example...

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

I am unsure about the hit system.... One can not calculate the opponents damage that easily, which makes your cool down usage a lot more random. I hate it. The removal of RNG was completely superficial -- at the critical decision making points in the game, there is actually more randomness than eve...

Re: Valks have been nerfed into obscurity

http://www.wowhead.com/petability=652 The new Haunt tooltip doesn't say anything about missing on the UD round either. I know they mentioned this change on Twitter, but there was no official mention of it, and the execution isn't very good. When Haunt misses, there's nothing ingame to explain why. T...

Re: Valks have been nerfed into obscurity

But making it so that a pet can't use its best ability during its final two rounds alive is ridiculous. This might be a bit much, their original statement on this implied that it wouldn't be usable on 'the undead round'. Which I assumed meant that if the Valk was in its UD round when you select abi...

Re: Valks have been nerfed into obscurity

I for one would have liked to see them FIX the problem instead of once again taking a shortcut and ruining a pet that a lot of people spent alot of time farming. Much akin to what happened with the Fluxfire. I wonder how you would have fixed it then. Adding a cooldown doesn't strike me as very seve...

Re: Valks have been nerfed into obscurity

4 rounds of haunt, combined with 5 rounds to cool off, means that it can only be used once every 9 rounds. 10 if it requires a pet swap. Seems very modest at that point If you compare it to old Haunt, then of course it's bad. But it's not fair to compare to old Haunt, because old Haunt was absurdly...

Re: What happened to the prices of pets?

Huge Sharp Teeth was a decent alternative to Flurry, but it got nerfed along with a few other DoTs that didn't deserve it (Rip, Poison Fang, etc.). DMR is very bad now.
