Mom, Bioware Hit Me With The Nerf Bat! — 4 Comments

  1. One of the things that turned me off of WoW after many, many years was continually having to relearn classes that I was perfectly content with. Don’t change stuff like this on me. I’m a paying customer. I like my sorc being over-healy and I like being able to breeze through content. I’m old and lazy…. well, no.. now I’m old, lazy, AND EXTREMELY CRANKY. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest various sensitive regions on the bodies of the SWTOR devs!

    • I actually share that particular sentiment but I think this is not a good comparison because it’s literally just a tweaking of numbers. Overall, Bioware has been pretty good about avoiding drastic play style changes. My Commando still feels very similar to how she played nearly five years ago, just a bit more mobile.

  2. I don’t mind this much, sorcs/sages are slightly outperformed the others, after all. The class has changed so many times since I started playing my sage healer as main (2012), I’m sure I’ll survive this. And, like Shintar already pointed out, no skill mechanics are being changed, so nothing needs to be relearned. I genuinely think it’s in everyone’s best interest when all three healer classes are well balanced: I mean, remember when you *needed* at least one operative/scoundrel healer to get past that particular boss in Nightmare mode? Sigh.
