|_-) we need a "good" feedback thread in ptr

  • Today... I noticed...

    Monk, Barb, and Wiz all got some new information release, for good or bad. They get blue response. Us are still in the dark. I would blame ourselves especially those that seek to nerf the set power of Marauder...

    I'm perfectly fine with the 6pc bonus, even though I don't like 4pc, and we all know 2pc is pointless. Our lack of "power" without M6 isn't caused by the set... I will repeat it is not the set's fault. Doesn't matter you agree or not... I'm trying to tell you the truth.

    We have 2 major problems after RoS

    The removal of the currency trade between Hatred vs Discipline

    The addition of cooldown (cd) based skills
    ... and the need to have cooldown reduction (cdr)


    These problem exist on day one of the RoS release. And it's getting worse each patch. My post don't get a lot of reader as I'm a poor writer. But the problem can only be solved if we see a patch note that includes several overhaul to our skills.

    Increasing the damage number on each skill can only do very little, so little it doesn't even lure you into using it. I'm a skill first... and item last kind of player. I value our skill system more than a lot of other players. And I firmly believe our problem can only be solved by changing our skills.

    Examples:

    Hatred Generator need to generate more Hatred
      3 -> 4
      4 -> 6
      and... please don't make everything fire...

    I can still get 20-30 Hatred/sec but must use HPoMY and a 6/attack Generator.

    Discipline Skill (purplish blue) need to cost Discipline and not cooldowns.

      /\// Defense
      Smoke Screen
      cost: 14 Discipline
      Vanish behind a wall of smoke, becoming momentarily invisible for 3 seconds. The smoke is capable of absorbing all incoming damage for 1 second.

      /\// Hunting
      Companion
      cost: 20 Discipline

      Preparation
      cost: 45 discipline
      Instantly restore 30 Discipline, but lose Discipline regeneration for the next 45 seconds.
      etc.


    Further more... I think it will be to our advantage if we destroy those item that remove the disicpline cost of our skills... like the new danetta 2pc and shadow 4pc because they remove the need to have Discipline.

    Really the only one that can be blamed for a lack of blue response is myself. I've been reading Demon Hunter feedback (every class, really), but I never dropped a simple message saying "hey guys, we're paying attention". So, I don't think it's really your fellow community members fault when it's actually just a bad goatman's. However, I have been reading a lot of Demon Hunter feedback threads, and passing your feedback along.

    I'll say hello in one of the Demon Hunter threads on the PTR Feedback forum to help consolidate the feedback, and keep the conversation rolling. We've got a new build on the way (no ETA, but soon!) to the PTR, and we'll have to see where things stand after you've had a chance to test things out. It's a very iterative process that can feel slow sometimes, but we definitely have not forgotten about Demon Hunters.

    Awesome, thanks for chiming in! It makes me happy that you've at least read the feedback we've been giving (note that its not all on the PTR feedback forum, please see DH specific class forum as well), since myself and many others want to see DH improved.


    One of my favorite streamers plays a Demon Hunter in T6, and I've been taking advantage of the knowledgeable folks in that channel to help get a better understanding of DH feedback I've been gathering. Mostly so that I personally understand it a little more, and help make sure that I can convey any concerns in a clear way. The reason that I'm pointing this out is so that you know I take it very seriously as well. :)
