how does everyone feel about them dropping more damage off of skills, and the recent changes to honored guest and spiritual attunement? i don't see alot of videos of WDs for RoS... are they really that strong? i'm noticing a bunch of buffs to the other classes damage on skills but they keep knockin the numbers back for WDs... thoughts?
Well Lumbering cold was really powerful, more powerful than bats if your target is right by you as multiple bears hit the same target. They reduced the damage and made it so the bears spawn 4 yards away from you so it just brings it inline with the other skills. Same goes for bats, reduced to be more in line with other skills. I dont have a problem with it.
The reduction to mana regen, wyatt responded in today's stream by saying they dont want builds revolving around one skill, just spamming that one skill. Their data showed that the majority of players on ptr/beta were playing with just one skill - bears.
Great change! Personally I am not a fan of the zombie or polar bears just because I think they are "out of sync" with the WD theme. Grizzly and polar bears in a jungle? Come on... Sounds more of necromantic druid skill to me
I understand and appreciate the big hit numbers but I prefer another animation, more zombie themed... (don't get me started on those rat like things we call zombie dogs... )
By the way, loved the stream and explanations of Wyatt. Shows me that we ought to give the devs more credits instead of blaming them for all the hurt in the world
@RasAlgethi24 do you actually have the RoS beta? if so, how do the skills feel as far as damage compared to other classes? also, how are WDs getting health back these days with the lack of LS? it seems only acid cloud and plague of toads are the only skills that proc LoH, though i could be wrong there.
