  1. 8.1, from the sound of it, sounds like a not as good Legion with a different story.

  2. You want to play competetive m+ and be take in most pugs ?, you need to play Havoc DH Rogue Asa or Blood DK or Monk Brewmaster if you don't, you need to be range dps (good team need at last one range) because you dont dh or rogue as mele.If you want to tank high keys not as DK or Monk, you need to pray, mayby team waiting too long for this two classes.
    I am Warrior Dps and i feel like a trash standing with dh or rogue on m+.They both have good dps and great utylity, what i have ?, 3% more physical dmg buff and Rallying Cry who no body care about this in M+ and i dont have better dmg than Rogue or DH.This is no only warriors problem, why people want to take feral druids over bala ?
    I dont blame people for this, i blame blizzard to force that, and dont fix this in 8.1 at all.

  3. Agreed. M+ is just lacking reward-wise once you break the +10 "barrier", especially considering how much easier it is to gear in raids with loot sharing. I did about 40 10+ and never got a single titanforge item, so item-wise it was a waste of time for me. They should increase the itemlevel in mythic+ on higher keys to 380, just below mythic raids, 4-6 weeks after the raids opened. Maybe 375 for +12 and 380 for a +14. A small amount of the new currency should also drop in raids, m+ and paragon chests, which are totally useless in 8.1. — Also class diversity needs to be looked at hard in m+.

  4. I think it was a good call not to give azerite gear coins in mythic+. Why? Well you could just no life that 2-3 days and buy max gear. Anyone could, then what is the point? They could just give it to you. Makes gearing even less exciting. If you have limitations how much you can get per week makes it fun. That is why I hate mythic+ system. You can just spam it all days and gear up quick. Making gear not exciting. It was way better when you had to kill raid boss once a week and hope it drops an item. If not, well better luck next week. Now gear drops when you fart, and if we get it so much it devalues it. That is why I play as casual now, I don't care for gear, it is pointless. I sometimes drag my alt ass trough normal and guess what, it is not so uncommon for gear to titanforge higher then my main have. That is unfair and makes me not wanting to go further then heroic. Who cares, same raid. Million difficulty levels waters it down.

  8. When Blizzard announced the Demonology rework for BFA, everyone was like "nice". Blizzard delivered. So when they announced a rework for SP (SP main) and shaman, the community expected the same thing. Except now, in Blizzard's dictionary, rework is synonymous with hotfix. sighpie

  9. Not many "New" things is true, we can crush the 8.1 things released within a week or two. It is time to focus on completionist, legacy and/or Alt content. Their is always a ton of content for those who look; but it's not always new, fresh, or compelling. I'm gona work on an alt and finally get the Lucid Nightmare. Great overview though.
    As for the residium on every run no, a daily drop however might be nice. I say this because you can't re-run the raid kill at the speed you can repeat M+'s. But adding a daily residium drop in M+ would be a heavy incentive for higher end players to more regularly engage in Dungeons

  10. Bro completely agree with you. I love WoW, but lately its literally impossible to play anymore. I'm bored out of my mind. can this patch save this expansion? I got hopes that they will pull through, but currently this shit is a chore.

  11. Enhancement shamans are gonna topple Demon Hunters and Rogues in M+ key pushing. I can't understand how they can make enhancement gameplay so strong and fun compared to other specs.

  12. im excited about the pvp change for DK's, maybe i can grind some rating now.

  13. Well looks like I will be getting some leveling down before the next raid. With the azerite catchup might be able to figure out what i actually want to main.

  14. I dont think you will be able to stockpile the currency for azerite armor. Blizzard wants you to spend the most time possible at the game, and it would be greatly reduced if you can get (RNG based) your 3 pieces with bis traits on the first week.

  17. Nothing at all so gatta wait till the raid hit

  18. I have 5 chars but I play a lot of them with minimum effort (more effective if you consider played time to items received) and only focus on my blood dk and my fire mage. Shaman feels complete ass in m+ and my holy paladin was a ret pala and i have to get new equip for it before it will perform decently. At least 8.1 will make it easier to have twinks
    Edit: with my dk and my mage doing m+ feels like a waste of time often because I hardly get items. I dont know why and I feel like it is a way to make me progress slower even with more time played. It is frustrating tbh.

  19. I am just in the phase where i would appreciate another new mmo, something with holy trinity, decent engine utilizing more cores than 1, and i am happy, Blizz in 2018 went from TOP gamoing company into a lazy,money grubbing average shit, like Activision

  20. 8.1 took too long and the raid itself end of January LOL …. too much slack and still not worth it. I won't start with the promised class changes!

  21. Interested for the new raid. That is it. Patch 8.01 has killed my enthusiasm to do anything other than raid. The BFA launch was unfinished train wreck. The people that I have played with over legion have gone. Patch 8.1 is some changes that could of been brought forward and now does too little, too late. And I doubt it will stop people unsubscribing. If you are an Average Joe player, it would be unfair to tell them to come back. BFA right now is dead in the water for most people. Maybe it will be enough in 8.2, if they throw the kitchen sink in with the introduction of flying. But that is still a long way away.

  22. Where is the unholy Dk love

  23. I left for FFXIV. Such a beautiful game. I'll come back when they have a decent endgame. A smart gamer would wait a year before getting a subscription so they don't waste money waiting for the good shit.
