Basically, I wouldnt mind using Flux team in PvE, but in PvP it has very large disadvantage against probably the most used pet family. Just my opinion ,though
Cabadath wrote:What do you mean when you say that Anubisath Idol will be stronger in 5.2? As far as I know he gets the reflection -> deflection nerf, but otherwise stays the same. Are there more changes I am not aware of? Or do you mean that Anubisath Idol will become stronger relative to the other pets and their abilities? (By this I mean that if Anubisath only get the deflection nerf and otherwise stays the same, and other abilities/pets gets nerfed, Anubisath Idol will essentialy be better than he was before)

Poofah wrote:No, conflag can't kill him that fast. Fluxfire needs 2 turns for Prowl+Flux, and even though he probably has to go 2nd that turn due to Prowl, there isn't a conflag pet that can kill him with 2 moves. Silver Dragohhawk needs 3 turns; Lil' Ragnaros needs 3 turns. Also, Conflagrate damage is getting nerfed by 20% in 5.2.
Adorich wrote:You're totally missing the point of the fff nerf. Blizzard never intended players to use 2 or 3 of the same pet in one battle. They also never intended players to totally ignore the family of the opponent they are facing. 5.2 is blizzard's attempt to fix this.

Poofah wrote:I think you're missing the point of my post. I'm not angling for ways to keep using Fluxfire to beat tamers. I'm pointing out that if PTR Fluxfire works the way it appears (Prowl/Supercharge lasting 1 round, and Flux dealing 12 frontline/9 backline), then it will still do a disproportionately large amount of damage, although it will require a slightly different setup to take advantage of. Blizzard's intent doesn't mean much if they screw up the implementation. But then again, Prowl/Supercharge may still be limited to 1 attack *and* 1 round, in which case Prowl+Flux will be terrible, and FFF will probably never be used except possibly to kill Sludgy.
Adorich wrote:After testing on the ptr (S/S FFF), I can confirm that both supercharge and prowl last 1 attack: the backline attacks of flux do not benefit from prowl or supercharge.
