(my thoughts on the) Resi change

is applied by rolling server restarts. This change is a HUGE buff to all healers. Damage dealer classes will all be nerfed. Damage is very low even on 1k resilienced targets. There is no way enough pressure on healers anymore, damage or manawise.

I think the following were problems (which sadly were not fixed)

-shadow priest survivability and burst
-elemental burst, and bad mechanic on LB crit reqs. (no F-shock remove on landed lava bursts)
-dispel resistances (mainly on poison mechanics)
-too many execute moves (kill shot, drain soul, hammer of wrath)

I am worried matches will last too long from now on, healers won't be be killable and arenas and pvp will be a somehow disappointing experience in season 8.

Let's hope i wil be wrong.

LF healer for season 8, 3v3

Our kitty cleave pushed to 2k in only two evenings in the last season and then the healer department failed me again. I am looking for DEPENDABLE, pro healers for 3v3 for the start of the new arena season.

Priests or resto shamans preferred, with good gear, skills and attitude.

In exchange i can promise you Free's lost match ragings on ventrilo, and a strong, very good rated team(and all the glory it comes with that).

Resilience change

I just read the blue post on the change, which is going live between the end and start of arena seasons. After this, resilience will further reduce incoming damage, but leaving the crit chance and crit damage reduction intact. So if you reduced incoming damage by 10 percent now you are looking at a ~20% damage reduction.

I don't like it. It changes the whole balance of things, instead fine tuning the randomly overpowered elements (eshamans,spriests), and classes with very high crit chance (oh wait im actually playing one) will be hardly effected on the damage front (no further reduced crit damage). Also healer classes will be buffed greatly, and i think healers are already in a very good place now. Good luck bringing down priests and shamans after this. I am worried this will result in additional nerfs and "fixes" in the following weeks. Especially on ferals.

"The change will double the value of resilience in reducing damage done by players. So depending on their current amount of resilience, characters might experience a 10 to 20% decrease in damage taken from other players. The critical strike chance and critical strike damage reduction components of resilience will remain unaffected by this change.

We are also aware of the possibility that this change will make healing in PvP too difficult to counter.
