/sit spam still allowed you to do it, and with them increasing the time between data batches we may yet see it again. Blizzard removed the direct activation of abilities procing the talents in patch 2.3 with 2.4 tying up the loose ends on the few they missed. If you sit spammed you could still proc the talents.
That’s when sitting while attacked itself could proc crit abilities.
In vanilla, if you were sitting, you would get crit automatically but abilities would not proc outside a few special attacks. You could utilize latency however to stand up at the right time to trick the game into critting you from sitting but, by the time you stood up, the game would then calculate on-crit abilities.
It wasn’t reliable for everyone.
I mean the only lost cause here is all of you paladins using these old guides as evidence until I started throwing around the fact the guide itself says only ABILITIES FROM PLAYERS can proc a charge from a talent.
Also if you even had the slightest understanding of how the current engine works and modern infrastructure you wont be able to fool the server like you could in 2006. Unlike the private servers that let you proc reckoning off mobs twenty levels lower then you by sitting.
Seriously you guys lost this fight, you won’t ever get to exploit sit. Get over it.
What fight was there to lose? Sit spam was a thing whether anyone likes it or not and that worked off of normal hits. The cause of this effect isn’t well understood and the slowed spell batching rates may or may not reintroduce it. Regardless, it isn’t a loss either way as reckoning is really strong without having to game it.
We literally have patch notes, several guides, and videos showing otherwise. You literally have no idea how spell batching works and don’t understand how the modern client would remove any possible chance of proccing a talent from a /sit.
The fight is that, Ret is still and always will be the worst dps in the game. You won’t be able to exploit sit to max level nor in pvp. Hell even legacy players says Ret is the worst even Elem or Enhancement is superior.
Show me those vidoes and maybe I’ll be able to understand what you are saying
Congratulations on trying to instigate indignation and anger there at the end. As for Ret being the worst dps in the game, one might think you were ignorant unless you add a qualifier to your opinion that specifically points to the one scenario you think they are bad at: raiding.
