Pally's Reckbombs - 2006 archives - working as intended

Just an update to all in this thread about intended behaviour.


Horde actually crying about meme spec paladins LMAO like bro just walk away like just dont go near him lmfao like bruh its a paladin KITE :rofl::ok_hand::rofl::ok_hand:


So that’s a change and since they made that change the other day it means stacking reck bombs and destroying trash warriors and their friends is ok.

Just can’t mount before doing it.

and how is batching affecting reckoning?

ive done all the reck tricks and i never get more that 4 hits.

ive tried the start/stop atk macro and that rarely if ever gets me free attacks all the tine

Never had an issue with the initial rek bomb - i had an issue with the behavious of multiple instant attacks in combat with every melee attack made against them - now this behaviour has been fixed it becomes somewhat balanced again.

Havent seen you all week - am i going to have to come to Stormwind battlemasters and find you? I could almost fit in inbetween my 2 hour av ques and non existient wsg ques.

Av spam, can’t wait for wsg to be king again.

So many bot like players in av lately.

Something we both agree on :slight_smile:, hopefully we get a < Alpha > v < Polygon > premade match.

Been facing off against teams blowing 200g+ in engineering bombs and pots just, to win wsg. Crazy times.

We will do premades soon I’m sure, been riding the av train atm

Batching is completely ruining reckoning. Now, if I get crit in quick succession, my character just stands there doing nothing. I am gonna be forced to manually swing my weapon now, but since they neutered the start/stop macro, that will be annoying.

please all alliance Paladins roll Ret/Prot Human like the OP for super sexy reck bombs





It was, there was a very famous paladin on my old server who played that spec till 2.0 when it was utterly destroyed by the reckoning change of TBC.

Not sure why Blizz busted your class but I can sympathize.

There is alot of bugs, that never got fixed in classic, like orcs resisting holy that players cant resist, get used to it

dryly yes macro everything, then no one needs to play !

They fixed the double instant attack + melee swing - im happy.
They fixed the start/stop attack behaviour for banking additional charges - if you /stopattack a pally will now lose all stacks and not swing - this is the change they needed to make.

Now you can still mount up, have an npc attack you + crit you for rek stacks, be unable fully heal yourself - ride off onto a player and unload for 4 instant (not 5 due to the bug) attacks. The ‘rek bomb’ is still there - but is now balanced.

You can not sit/stand + spam start/stop attack in combat for 2 instant melee swings every time you are struck in combat - you can sit/stand for an auto crit for 1 instant melee attack. Again - balanced behaviour.

If you are incombat and recieve a crit while stunned (warrior charge stun) you will still bank those stacks and unload 4 instant attacks against the warrior as soon as you swing as long as you dont /stopattack - working as intended.

They are working on a hotfix that prevents you losing rek stacks if you are not facing the target at the time of the proc (rogue opener from behind).

just to be fair, i dont mind that bugs that were bugs, get fixed in classic… there is a difrence to fixing and changing… but i think be both agree there

Most of all WSG wall/map sploits needs fixed, its one of the most fun BGs we have, but at moment its unplayable

I think you misunderstood what I was saying. Perhaps brushing up on your reading comprehension skill may allow you to understand.

Could not tell you on the inner workings of wsg - OCE horde wsg q times range from 30+ mins in prime time to zero active games being played outside of primetime - so hours.

This is the thing tho - something was discovered in Classic that never existed in 2004-2006 that utalized spamming a macro and spell batching to create a new bug.

We are already way past nochanges and well well into the somechanges, from both players and devs.

No players need to be reported for exploiting/cheating and players need to stop using them. Its against the tos to exploit terrain.

Most of this post is incorrect.

Also, you are a bit too happy about them bugging out reckoning, instead of fixing what needed to be fixed.

Sounds like you are a little to unhappy about the change to

abusing an ingame bug.

A bug was fixed.

No, they broke it further than that, but you are more concerned with “I told you so” to the paladins who you argued with in that other thread.

Edit: also just fyi, now sword spec for rogue and warrior, as well as hoj and reckoning stacks, sometimes just don’t proc.
