I’m not FoTM reroller, I’ve played DK exlusively all expansion long and never complained or rerolled while doing less than healer DPS, having to spam taunt just to keep threat against pallies or frantically trying and failling to keep mobs off wars in M+. The strawman allegation was not needed and unproductive.
Historically, overpowered/degen play styles, like pally glimmer, are met with adjustments that don’t ravage the playstyle in the middle of a tier. This is because it’s understood that, while maybe it should not have gone live as is, it’s butchering a playstyle that players have already spent significant time and resources on, creating very negative player experience.
Never said not to nerf if, rather, instead of a knee jerk reaction from watching MDI I’m advocating for blizz to open a thread about addressing the issue; Here’s the issue, we’re capping strength stacks at 30 for now, here’s what we’re thinking in the coming weeks, please discuss, let’s address the DRW uptime issue without making guilds drop their DKs on M jailer because 95k melees are too much for them without DRW up. Maybe a look at CRW legendary, Shackle spread in M+ or Tombstone all giving DRW massive CDR/infinite runes to spam HS.
What’s misunderstood is that BDK’s power has all come from Borrowed power stacking on top of each other and synergizing to create an inflated packaged, from tier to leggo to shackle to gavel. Baseline BDK is actually very weak.
