Please start balancing everything the correct way now early season.
Some specs are roughly 20-25% behind on damage compared to some of the top damaging specializations.
Yes certain specs will get nerfed this incoming reset. but a 5-10% nerf is not enough, or you should buff the " avarage specs " to be on par with the top ones.
If you play Demon hunter or Hunter do not be insulted by this post, i am making this post to show that the balancing team is again doing its best work. Afterall you want to keep the entire playerbase happy and not just a part of them
Yes i have and the impact is about 5-10% for Demon hunter & Hunter dps. See the difference in the post i showed. It’s about 20-25% not 5-10% which means the tuning is incorrect even after the nerfs there will still be about 15% difference.
Most people showed in the logs have the 4-piece. I have checked it personally. It is now the right time to do correct tuning. Half season it will only cause issues as people have pushed high with these Meta classes and cannot do this again without them, which will result in ‘Dungeon nerfing’ like last season. Which is even more of a headache towards Blizzard.
That’s blizzard’s approach every time.
“Let’s adjust it by 3% then wait and see how it works”
And a few weeks later “Oh, it still sucks, let’s give it 1.8% and wait and see”.
The problem is a season doesn’t last 6 months like blizz likes to think. In 1 maybe 2 from now most people quit and nobody cares if they get it right a week before the next patch/expac launches as it will upset the balance anyway.
It’s easier to nerf 3-4 classes then to buff all the others. It would turn into a balancing nightmare and it’s generally easier. If for example the overpowered specializations would be 5% stronger then the rest, that would be acceptable as it’s close enough to fill the gap. But 20-25% difference (after nerfs 15-20% difference) is unacceptable. After those nerfs u can start buffing certain classes like Shadowpriest / WW etc to bring them closer to the middle of the pack.
They don’t have to. They can just safely nerf it with 15% overall to start with. Then see how it’s performing, it will still be 5-10% ahead of the rest. But a 5-10% nerf is just too small to begin with. I don’t want to see those classes destroyed, i just want to see them closer to the rest of the pack.
I’m sorry but if you don’t see that BM hunter and DH are overtuned, you really need to start joining some M+ keys with them. Come back afterwards. Group composition is absolutely irrelevant to the dmg output they have. I’ve even seen on some groups doing 2x DH + Aug, melting all adds like butter. But hey perfectly balanced right? U guys all need to stop defending overpowered specializations and be true and honest. We don’t want your specialization destroyed, we just want to see it in normal healthy standards.
So demon hunter and BM hunter is not doing 20-25% more? Alright. You are right. They are balanced and all other classes just suck then. Got it. You hear that people. Reroll BM hunter or DH, there’s no other specializations anymore.
Simplified: You posted two logs. One with a DH one with a Fury.
DH in a 26 was doing about 2x the dps of a Fury in a 22.
You used these logs to justify a 40% damage nerf. Very balzy. Maybe a 20% is enough. Or a 10%. Dont know. Your logs definitely dont answer that question.
Also, DH are lame let me tell you.
Im dont care how much dps they do. Its 0 if they are dead. So much dashing around makes DH eat WAY more frontal and swirls than rogues, palas and warriors. So in a pug world, I prefer other melee specs to DH. Those are always bad. FOTM rerolers.
And BM hunters thing M+ is just about ZugZug (which they dont do, its their pets)… 0 mechanics. Brainded huntards from classic memes.
So they might be OP in damage. But when it comes to executing the dungeons properly, I have yet to see a PuG worth his RIO.
Take Havoc, for example. Immolation Aura and Ragefire (which is based on Immolation Aura) together typically make up around 25% overall damage. Nerfing IA by 12% results in an overall damage nerf of around 3%. Since they are way ahead of most other classes, that 3% overall nerf is clearly not enough.
1st. Havoc: 191.4k
2nd: Demolock: 175.6k
3rd: BM 172.9
4th: Outlaw: 172.2
5th Assa: 161.9
High-key M+ average DPS of Havoc at the moment is 191.4 in 1st place. In 2nd place is Warlock with 175.6. Nerfing Havoc by 3% overall changes nothing; they will still be 1st by a large margin.
Also, why isn’t Demolock getting nerfed? Why was Assa nerfed by not Outlaw, even though Outlaw is much stronger?
