Hey so I found out about this mechanic, “leeway”, This morning, and have since spent the day looking through reddit posts and forum posts alike. I’ve realized several things.
A. Melee leeway was never intended to be in WoW vanilla and it completely ruins several important aspects of the game. AKA kiting mostly. I have several videos of this that i would link to if these crappy forums allowed it.
B. Spell Leeway was indeed in the game and was in fact added in patch 1.3.0—
- Spells in PvP now have a slight increase in range and area of effect when targets are moving. This should improve the overall usability of spells and ranged attacks.
C. Basically by making this post i’m asking the question of is this truly going to make it into Classic? If so I’m going to have to re-roll, because this mechanic clearly destroys kiting. Which is y’know the biggest hallmark of Vanilla Hunter/ Mage…
Seriously I need some answers from blizz. Because this severely influences my choice of class. I’m not going to play a hunter if i’m going to be unable to kite, it literally ruins the class, atleast in pvp.
If you want an extremely obvious example of this google “Norththemage Hes losing it bros” it will bring up a clip that makes this extremely obvious what im talking about.
