Since my old sig is about to become invalidated, thanks for the new sig ^^
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

It will also be the last nail in the coffin for 99 % of all dps sorcs and sages in normal warzones, which makes up for nearly 100 % of all games played. If they've been hanging in there this long I highly doubt that they're the types that simply re-roll so it will be 1.2 all over again (read: population will dip and dps sorcs/sages will be considered unicorns in warzones). I think a good deal of commandos and mercs are starting to feel like they've had enough too.

Goodbye bubblesun, welcome 10K+ smashes, damage buff to all other knight/warrior damage abilities after the 10k smash, 9k railshots, 8k ambushes, 8k dispatches with your health above 30%, root break on obliterate/zealous leap, lolroll, sniper/gunslinger gods, all pyro's getting hold the line, naked pvp, pve barrels/hilts BIS... did I miss anything?


Bubble stun is,(soon to be "was") a retarded mechanic, but it was just one issue that needed to be addressed; removing one imbalance while not touching another, and then throwing in massive damage buffs to other classes.... let's not even talk about snipers/gunslingers going from extremely balanced to demi-god status,

But you're right, bubblestun is gone!

Gives people more incentive to buy the expansion and we all know this company (and all others) likes mo money, hehe.

Thanks for the helpful feedback. I am no doubt excited for this

I'm also very excited to see how the gearing will be dealt with for the 30-54 bracket because I have, essentially, 4 new 50's due to the DBL EXP weekends. Would love to not have to worry about gear till level 55 because I'm less than gear-less on all of my toons because I'm stacking comms in the event that WH/EWH becomes obsolete which is my hope.

Goodbyeee...

Wipe the tear, sorcy dear, from your eyeee...

No more team bubbletstun, thank you baby Jebus.

Of course, we still have that twin plague the smashmonkey, but saying "bubblestun was the only thing stopping Smash" is to get the wrong end of the stick. They were both horrible, game-buggering goblins, and if one is dead I'll cheer while I hope the other's demise soon follows. One step in the right direction is better than none.

I'd be ok with the bubblestun nerf if smashers got nerfed to the ground as well

But no they push them further

dot spec always has done a ton of dmg, but it is splash dmg. no doubt there.

my real answer, though, is suck it up. the mechanic was broken. I know all about playing a nerfed spec. my first pvp toon was (inexplicably!) a mando dps. here's the thing though, BW "fixed" sage dps with a ridiculous ability/utility that may have improved playability for one class, but significantly detracted, if not ruined it, for like 5 other ACs/specs. so whine all you want. that's the reaction you're gonna get. it's not that ppl don't have sympathy for the sage/sorc dps situation, but bubble-stun was a horrible mechanic and nothing more than a band-aid.

I haven't played the PTS because I feel like enough of a beta tester on live versions of games, so I have no idea whether they've actually addressed sage and mando dps in a meaningful way. however, they did eliminate the ridiculous aspects of bubble stun, which is a great big fat yay! in my book.

instead of defending bubble-stun, I think all these sages/sorcs ought to argue for meaningful fixes to their dps situation. look at the sniper (pre- 2.0). they're a viable turret dps. lightning and grav are also turret, bursty dps trees (for their ACs). they require similar sorts of tools. don't cry for some broken bubble stuff that you have no business applying to the entire ops in the first place. cry for a reasonable toolbox that BW somehow decided (long ago) should only belong to snipers/gs.
