Feelsbad reaping will be goneIt was quite nice as an affix and not very difficult to deal with
Looks like fun, hope they expand on it!
That's kind of the problem, as fun as it is, Bliz feels that Reaping is too easy. So they are moving back to an affix that makes people CC and single target to slow things down.
Queen's Decree: Blowback: Grants nearby allies Queen's Decree: Blowback, reflecting 200% of damage dealt back at the target.Looking forward to this on my balance druid with only cleave....I just stay in a corner while rest is dps'ing ;p
They probably won't have these tested on PTR for long enough, just like previous seasons, and then will start "hotfixing" when people complain on live.Pretty much the usual theme of this entire expansion.
If I read it well, the affix will have differents effects every week.It can be a lot of fun, but it will inevitably result in some weeks being easier than others because of how the seasonnal affix did roll this week.Sounds a little bit counter-productive considering that they are trying to fight the "push week" effect, IMO.
Hopefully this affix will actually encourage ST-heavy specs, especially ones that can funnel, like Sub.SUPER bored of *Mod edited* Outlaw Rogues and Demon Hunters pressing two abilities and wiping the floor clean, even in higher keys
It depends on whether the buff with that exact text is on mobs or players. If it's on players, then the resulting effect should be on the mobs. If it's on the mobs, then the resulting effect should be on players (since we are enemies of the mob).I'm betting on the latter case, because the effect triggers on death, and there are a lot more mob deaths than player deaths in a typical run. I also doubt they will make an effect that makes runs even harder than it already is whenever someone dies. It will turn bad but salvageable pulls into a complete wipefest.Thematically, they've shown in the lore that Azshara loves to toy with the PCs, thinking them beneath her. She probably sees the whole thing as entertainment , so it's totally believable that she will buff the players for "doing well".
By the way, when is season 3 supposed to start? Want to know how much time I have for the elite set :pEDIT : I know there isn't an official date, I'm talking speculation/probable date
I hope they bring back Reaping as a permanent affix in the future.
arcane seems to be more powerful than the other 2. where you must kill that as soon as your healer can manage to keep you alive (if it has 200k health you need to not nuke it or you kill yourself)
