Diamond Flask's HP5 snapshots

Funny enough. They could just remove batching all together. It was a feature majority of people didn’t want and hardly makes sense in 2020. Why they felt other quality of life choices that weren’t present in Vanilla were warranted to put into Classic, but artificially creating “lag” is something we wanted to re-experience.

It’s as if they didn’t learn what worked through the private projects that have been running since Vanilla ceased to exist :thinking:

They listened to the community about batching:

The community was very happy when they announced they would be reverting to an archaic Vanilla batch system:

Now we have some of those same people speaking out against batching. The problem is, instead of admitting they were wrong, they’re just claiming Blizzard didn’t implement it properly.

People not being able to admit they were wrong is why Blizzard is never going to remove Vanilla batching.

Yea, Blizzard has proven they can’t maintain a desired modern version of WoW Vanilla that the private projects have been striving to achieve for decades. It was just until recently, last 5 years or so, that emulation projects became very high quality. If Blizzard’s Classic servers were a private project, it’d have life, but it’d be far from the most popular I think.

Given the quality that I have seen on one private server first hand, blizzard would be in a rough place because even with the private servers not being 100% accurate, they are really impressive.

For the record datamining suggests this should happen with 8/8 Bloodfang procs as well. Let’s get ahead on this, shouldn’t happen for runeblade, flask, or bloodfang.

LOL saw your diamond flask post today, that’s fkn epic dude… makes me wish that was a quest trinket for any class…

One of our warrior tanks tried it out last week and the TPS it provided was truly bonkers… That alone is game breaking.

Can you send me the log plz
Did he use it for each boss?

##KHLAUSELast Monday at 10:42 AM
Just Vael, we don’t log much man.
I will ask them to log this week.
Lets put it this way I was able to spam Backstab without using Vanish to clear my threat.
That’s now wack it is.

How much healing does he have when he activates the snapshot?
Do you amp magic him?
Or give him PI?

KHLAUSELast Monday at 10:46 AM

He said he was up too ~1200+ healing.
How insane is that???

The Diamond Flask and the Rune blade make perfect sense, but not sure how the rogue set would work out here.

To snapshot the healing effect and change out gear doesn’t the player have to first be out of combat use the ability or object then change gear and then enter combat?

If so then how would a rogue do this because he would need to be in combat with the 8/8 bloodfang set on for that to take place.

2 x Grand Marshal Healing Maces with +55 Healing on each
2 x Healing/Spell Dmg trinkets macroed together on activation
2 x Cauterizing Band
Healing Necklace
Healing Cloak

Would that be worth while tho in PVE? Maybe some niche PVP situations it would work out interestingly well but PVE? Do you think rogues would give up real damage for +healing procs?

Loatheb :stuck_out_tongue:

I wonder does healing gear help with Paladin Judgement of Light? That is an interesting situation if so.

no doesn’t scale alas

Well that is dumb. How come the diamond flask and runeblade get special treatment?

Monkey Coding at its finest…

It really is, there are some things that seem to be busted. Hard to prove but just don’t play as I remember. Eh who knows, maybe I am wrong, maybe every single person who played Vanilla is wrong. Maybe the private server guys who also played vanilla also just remember it wrong.

Its possible, but how probable?

This is how the Diamond Flask functioned in Vanilla.

anyone with warcraft log skillz
can they do a parse search plz
and see how prevalent the trinket usage/healing is

iffyToday at 3:02 PM

found a log, average heal hit was 500 for this dude

ShocknaToday at 3:17 PM

@Theloras Pretty prevalent in hardcore guilds I’d say
Most top dps warriors on Benediction are talking about this

BreconToday at 4:12 PM

Per Blizzard’s runeblade nerf, snapshotting and +healing on these auras was a “bug in the original client.”
It’s not about video evidence anymore. They said this shouldn’t exist. So they should be consistent

XhaneToday at 4:20 PM

My guild’s tank does it after I told them about it
He had about 400 +heal for this

Correct, and we have proof of that too.

Maybe you misunderstood what I was curious over, if they nerfed runeblade and it was previously functioning as it did in Vanilla, then why does Diamond flask get also get special treatment?

Rune blade got special treatment by getting nerfed.

Diamond flask doing what it did in Vanilla also gets special treatment by not getting nerfed.

That’s the question I was asking, perhaps I just worded it really bad, it happens text often fails to convey an entire point because nuance and inflection speech is often times lost.

cuz they lied through their teeth about it being a bug on the reference client is where I would put my money on


I can’t seem to find any evidence that it scaled in Vanilla. I’ll keep looking.
