I would love to see some single target buffs. The go-to build right now revolves around cleaving with primal wrath, which feels very M+ like.
The bleed dmg looked promising again in the first 2 weeks of pre-patch, but seems to have been significantly detuned as of lately.
Rake used to tick for about 4-4.5k, which was about 4% of someone’s 100k healthpool last ssn. Rip ticked for about 3k.
Rake with full honor gear + every gold mastery enchant ticks for 6.5k, which is about 2% of someone’s 320k health pool. Rip goes for 5k/tick which is 1.5% of the total hp.
Sure, there is the talent circle of life and death which makes bleeds tick 25% faster, but that stil doesn’t weigh up.
These tunes probably were done to reduce the massive cleave bleed dmg, but with the result of taking a big chunk out of single target dmg.
I personally enjoy playing 2s, and I fear we’ll be far outclassed due to not having enough dmg single target.
Perhaps primal wrath could be a stand alone feature that applies a bleed that’s seperate from rip, so this bleed can do reduced dmg per character it’s on, and rip can maintain some decent value for single target pressure.
Or make draught of deep focus a talent, so that those who want to do single target dmg can still do significant dmg, and those that prefer aoe get to use primal wrath.
