Naxxramas: Some concerns.

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I'm just going to keep it short and make a bulletpoint list of some concerns and questions I have and I have heard over the last few days in the hopes that maybe someone from the team can address them:

- Firstly, a large concern during PTR testing of Naxxramas was the absolute lack of explanation that some fights had regarding their adapted or new mechanics. Faerlina is a great example of this, with spell tooltips not correctly explaining the new mechanics, or in some cases not existing at all.

- Why are the PvE balance changes, being locked behind a TWITTER POLL? Community engagement is great, but messing us around by delaying important balance changes just to boost your twitter engagement is not. We've seen this before with content releases (retweet us 100 times and we'll give you new side content). If you haven't noticed, this does nothing but frustrate your own community...

- Achievements! Are we getting Realm First achievements? If so is the R1st achievement just going to be for KT, or other bosses as well?

- Attunement?? This was not present on PTR and nothing has been mentioned about it, are we having one or not?

- Why were the construct and frost wings not tested on PTR? Is the team now confident enough in their own ability to self-test raids lol

Ye twitter is garbage, believe it or not, but there are people like me who dont use twitter, i dont use social media in general. You could do this votes on disc instead. Also i cant vote for something i dont know what i get for it, so give us patchnotes and than do a vote.

And why is it that we can't see what the changes are going to be so that people can make a informed vote rather then a shot in the dark hoping it's going to be more buffs rather then nerfs JUST A FEW WEEKS BEFORE NEW RAIDS. what if these changes are massive and fucks up so many builds.

 

who knows suddenly flash heal get's a major buff and it's the best heal in the game. and every other heal get's nerfed, we don't know what they're going to change and making a twitter pole and not even making one on the fourms is a massive mistake.

Yeah, imagine making a poll on Twitter when half the community doesn't use Twitter, when about 90% are on Ascension's Discord.

Regarding Naxxramas, I really hope you did the most important thing: did you replace Baron Rivendare with Alexandros Mograine?

I'd say the biggest concern of all is the balance changes. Attunement isnt too hard just get exalted with AD and done. Having balance changes less than a week before or even after a new raid drops is just bad play, its going to make progressing content harder without much of a need for it. We need to know what changes you plan on before even voting on anything, there are obvious balance changes that need to happen, Like nerfs to dot specs in pvp but thats pvp so doesnt effect PvE of course. Specs like holy caster and SMF need a nerf aswell but there are a few specs that need a change or a nerf. Powerword: Shield needs to change as it basically removes certain mechanics from boss fights, like vaels burning adrenaline. If the changes are all PvP based or high risk based then wtf is the point in doing a twitter poll? Naxx is PvE content and should be the main focus for the team as all realms engage in PvE. 

In terms of testing then that should have been done by now, ALL of it. AQT has been out a while and the server has been up for over 2 years. Back when I started in Beta i actually asked a team member how were the raids getting on, the team member hasnt been with the team for over a year so take this with a pinch of salt, he said we have them all done just need to test. I asked how would they be tested? he said on a perm PTR that will be up 100% of the time, excluding updates and crashes of course. Neither has happen, there are still bugs in ZG, MC, Ony, BWL and AQT. I think AQR is the only raid without bugs or issues in it but that raid is a snooze fest. Hopefully this sort of issue wont happen in TBC as i have a personal hatred for TBC content and I actually want to try and enjoy it for once and not just get bored. 

 

The R1st achivements should and always have been for each boss so people can celebrate every boss and not just push for final, thats one of the reasons I don't play live. The game is supposed to be fun and tbh having seasonal take pop or have the game made easier, by easier I mean have Faction leaders drop BWL loot 99% of the time for people in greens but those who have cleared it always get blues, greens, tomes or recipes. Vanilla - Wrath was the best time for WoW as it was actually a challenge and Ascension should be. Hopefully when Naxx drops AQR/AQT better not drop from Faction leaders and invasions or you'll just piss off all the veterans who will leave and youll have no one clearing top content. MAKE THE GAME HARDER FOR GOD SAKE!
