The proc rate is going to affect fury generation and LOH. Survivability is going to go down a touch. It's going to be much harder to keep up WOTB for a full duration. DPS wise, we should still be the same.
Should be a pretty big hit, but WW/tornadoes have been crazy good. Luckily these are the PTR patch notes. They can still make changes down the road.
Yes, they got more time to add 5 sec cooldown to sprint.
so we are lookin for some build lookin like this
could go with bloodthirst...
so when they nerf npc dmg, we get less fury and speed, but more dmg ?!
No. You'll still need Run like the Wind on Sprint, because that's where most of our damage comes from and it's not damage that's being nerfed. Only LoH and BR proc from the tornadoes are being nerfed.
yes, thank m8, more or less its the same build than we just need to get more LS and all resist, and watch what will hapen with fury regen, but still we have now lot to "combine", should't be that big deal...
its quite logical that you have to sacrifice something for the speed of this build, in this case it means 1 passive and axes/maces in the favor of animosity and mighty weapons, which I'm fine with.
Some people seem to forget that they reduced the cost of WW and that they buffed animosity, personally i never kite with run like the wind anymore, run like a wind is not exactly an expensive spender, i can keep up WW and run like the wind in all fights, now we get reduced fury cost on WW (which is the biggest fury eater in this build).
Even with 35k HP i almost never have to leave my "whirlwind/tornado circle" to regain back life, WW is our main skill for healing (at least mine), and it got buffed.
Hopefully this post wont come back and bite me in the ass, but I'm quit sure this build will be just as viable (or very close to it) if people switch to mighy weapons and animosity.
Powered Armor - Armor bonus reduced from 15% to 5%
Not barb specific but still a nerf to WW build since every one of us uses it.
I always used the scoundral for the extra 3% crit. Every piece of crit helps. Well actually I play public games more often because it's a lot easier to stay alive when you have range helping out.. and MF doesn't average out anymore.
