Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • [With weekly restarts] Fixed a bug that caused tanks to benefit from roughly twice the intended amount of Dodge from the Dodge Rating statistic.
    • Developers’ notes: We’re fixing this to avoid seeing raid groups skew toward maximizing for it. This fix will not change your Dodge % displayed on your character sheet, as the bug was invisible to players.
  • [With weekly restarts] Reduced Algalon’s melee damage by 10% in both 10-player and 25-player difficulties.
    • Developers’ notes: We feel that the increase in pressure on tanks and healers from the Dodge bugfix will be manageable in other encounters, but this one needs a compensatory tweak.
  • Classes
    • Druid
      • Omen of Clarity will now always trigger when Faerie Fire (Feral) is used on a non-player-controlled target. It will no longer trigger from casting Gift of the Wild.
        • Developers’ notes: This change is intended to make Feral DPS gameplay more accessible to the average WotLK Classic player and resolve many of the design challenges created by “Bear-weaving” and “Flower-weaving” combat strategies. It is expected to be a slight buff to the best Feral DPS players around 5% to 10% depending on encounter, and a larger buff to players who were not employing these strategies.

“slight buff 5 to 10% depending on encounter.”

friend test on the dummy, 1k dps increase unbuffed , wonder how thats gonna look in a buffed raid

Sure wish my class got a “slight Buff”

10% (blizz’s estimate for gains by top feral players, probably undershooting considering feral sweatiness) puts them 2nd on Ignis, Razor, Freya, and Algalon, 3rd on XT, Auri, and Thorim, 5th on council, and makes them the #1 melee on Vezax.

Kind of an absurd buff to a spec that already was not underperforming.

and yet… steady decline of subscribers, a serious amount of folks on your forums talking about it, giving hundreds of reasons why it would be good for your game, and yet still no rdf put BACK into the game you took it out of. seems like someones not paying attention at all. still patiently waiting but eventually patience wears thin. :slight_smile:


So when are we undoing the Titansgrip nerf. Or at least instead of 10% doing 5% since every class thats been a meme has gotten some sort of buff to their class which has helped them. Just curious figure if you want balance… some more at least make it so warriors can stop being talked down too all the time even with some of us topping meters at times with full blown maximizing of dps.

Awsome. BM hunter buffs when?

Considering you just put feral dps to S teir i think putting BM to a B teir would be reasonable.

When they calculated how much of a buff this would be i think they forgot to add in the fact auto attacks are no longer lost /delayed from shifting as there is no more shifting.

(Also warrior buffs when?)

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Druid
    • Developers’ notes: We are making a follow-up change on the Omen of Clarity adjustment we made last week. We found the change that prevented Gift of the Wild from trigging Omen of Clarity was unnecessary, and will have a negative impact on Balance Druids, so that change is being reverted. The Bear threat multiplier has also been raised slightly.
    • Omen of Clarity now triggers from Gift of the Wild.
    • Slightly increased Bear threat multiplier.

So you just buffed them even more after massively overshooting your initial mark?

so no mention at all of how this is a literal 5% phys damage nerf to feral in pvp? Again, please pass w/e you guys are smoking when you come up with decisions like this. The second you had it pointed out to you this would have implications in pvp you should’ve put a stop to the update, no one cares feral druids were doing slightly above middle of the pack damage in ulduar, your own post even stated only in full ICC bis was it a problem.

Asking for a friend. When is titangrip nerf being unnerfed a bit. It’s 10% now what’s say we make it 5%. Kinda puts all the meme melee currently into a better spot… With you know buffing ret… buffing cat… Just you know TG Nerf change from 10% to 5%

still waiting patiently for you to finally realize that you removed a tool that advocated inclusivity, while promoting a tool that encourages divisiveness. i thought Blizzard was all about diversity and inclusivity these days, but how can you be that when you removed RDF, a tool specifically designed to promote inclusiveness by guaranteeing everyone a run and encouraging strangers to meet and work together to complete content?


These words are cancer.

im just saying that blizzard is supposedly all about inclusiveness one day then removes a tool that promotes it the next… pointing out their hypocrisy is all. im definitely not a liberal nutjob lol.

RDF causes people to just queue and not do any searching for people they want to run with… It essentially destroys an MMO because you just sit in Dal in queue the whole time, and when you find a group you don’t even have to engage with them, and then it becomes a “Hi, Bye!” type community.

Holy crap, people are DOING THIS RIGHT NOW.

With RDF at least they’re free to ignore chats and go about their business doing dailies and whatnot.
