Actually, that’s the thing. Dead talent implies it has no use.
There was a brief period where IR began to overtake FS in it’s own niche, pure execute. Thing is, with CsHb taking over pretty much completely, there’s no room for IR to be strong.
Meaning for pure execute, FS is still a very strong niche. If Jaina was 30% to 0, for example, you’d likely see more use of FS. But just changing 35%-5% erases that.
Isn’t that the point of talents? To fill a specific role? IR is strong for sustained cleave, such as a week like this fort-teeming, where you don’t pull too large but the packs live for long periods of time. Additionally, it sees use every explosive week and makes fury easily one of the best orb killers.
Somehow, I do doubt it, yes. Seeing as despite being the stronger option for both taloc and Ghuun, it was utilized by less than 8% of fury warriors. Because the majority of people who play this spec, don’t know anything beyond the cookie cutter.
Half the people asking for fixes to dead talents don’t even realize the talents are not dead. There are a lot of specs with legitimately no change in talents, ever. In any row. M+ or raid.
We’re sitting over here, with the option between SD/IR/FS, MC/DR/BS, RA/AM/SB, three full damned rows that all see use, either in niche or, in the case of the latter two, damn near preference, especially in m+, and we have the gall to complain?
That’s ignorance, indignant, or deceitful. Doesn’t matter which one it is, all three are pretty crap.
That’s better feedback? A single person’s subjective feeling?
Again, two uses, since January, and it’s not suddenly a non-factor. if a pure execute phase boss appears, it will see use. You know, like how Jaina, and Ghuun, and just about every end boss is?
It depends on the fight. Same way melee is pretty overall poor right now. Is that because every melee spec is dumpster? No, it’s due to the fight design overwhelmingly supporting and favoring dotcleave.
Stop blaming your spec when it’s fight design.
