We, of the Guardian community, appreciate that Blizzard is at least looking at doing something with Frenzied Regeneration (FR, going forward). However, this is not the right approach. You’ve effectively made it feel even worse to hit FR than it felt before.
You addressed some concerns with our rage and that was immediately taken away with forcing us to use more of it with FR. We already were only ever using FR to keep it off of 2 charges, this change makes it feel like we should only ever hit Ironfur, going forward.
In a 12 minute fight with the target dummy where I only ever hit FR to keep it off of 2 charges AND (not or, but AND) ~50% hp, 41% of my Frenzied Regeneration was over-healing.
My suggestion is to leave it the way it is on live and remove the GCD, or make the “up to 40 rage” significantly lower.
Some other suggestions I’ve heard:
- “Make it a single charge with a 12-18 sec CD reduced by haste making it a “I just got hit by magic or a single huge hit” button” and this way you could still leave it at 40 rage"
NOTE: I’ll be keeping this post updated with other GOOD suggestions I hear throughout the community.
