please add infernal, army and the elementals to the cooldown reset mechanic after bossfights, its just no fun to wait or do wargames to be able to parse

also please remove eventbuffs in raids

So you can “fix” a minor thing that would give Elemental shamans a more justified spot in a raid environment, but you can’t be bothered to fix our elemental totems not having their cooldowns reset between boss attempts. Does your balance team go to work every day, wondering how they can screw over players in new ways and call it “fixes” ?

I beg please, add RDF for leveling at least. Playing on a realm that is decreasing by the day in population makes it harder to find dungeons, despite whispering everyone who is level eligable for the dungeon asking if they want to come, despite only looking for 1 dps so that we can go 4-man…

We ended up going 3-man yesterday in SM amrory, at peak time by the way…

Please add cross-realm RDF for at least leveling dungeons so that we can find more people to play with when leveling. Heck, make it even so that we still need to run to the dungeon itself and summon each other and that we don’t end up in each others realms until we are inside the dungeon if you must. But give us something now.

Mow you fixed that drake, keep it up and remove the carets*

  • Carets:

Those small up or down pointing triangles telling you something is above or below you. They do not belong in Classic - neither Wrath C. nor Era - as they were added in the Legion Pre-patch.

Snapshotting is not a bug, that’s been in the game for like 10 years, even still in mists. That doesn’t need to be “fixed”

Now add the 10m cd’s like Fire ele totem, Infernal and Army of the dead to the list of cooldowns that reset on wipe or kill in raids. It’s ridiculous that they aren’t already. Essentially just making middle of the pack specs feel worse than they need to in raids.

I mean losing 3-6k per melee summon when ppl are fighting over 50 dmg on boss. Also it doesn’t happen for caster summons almost never (gargoyle). In melee snapshots it happens like 50% of times whenever it was like this in classic wow it’s really bad to snapshot ability and then lose damage because of RNG. And please proof it’s still in the game ( shadowlands, dragonflight).

Also remember that blizzard changes things like gargoyle that had random delay between casts and was in the game basically until mop.

The reset for all cds would be nice.

Still nothing about the crippling framerate stutter in 25 man raids that are being posted about both here, on the NA forums and on the wow reddit front page. But at least we can mount with in dala

Fix the 10 min CDs not resetting already. I saw a post where you listed the spells CURRENTLY not resetting. Can you atleast elaborate on why you made this decision? I see SO many posts here on the forum about it, and I play both Ele main and DK alt, its really really really frustrating when you play for Warcraft logs. PLEASE MAN.

Any timeline on when pet resilience is going to be fixed? It’s been broken for a week now ever since the DK pet “fix”. It’s very unfun having everyone oneshot the pet every game since they know about the bug now. Makes playing warlock nearly impossible to push with currently.

I would like to play arena in the near future :frowning:

Here are today’s hotfixes for Wrath of the Lich King Classic:

NOVEMBER 16, 2022

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Classes
    • Warlock
      • Fixed an issue where pets were not properly benefiting from resilience.
  • Player versus Player
    • The PvP rating calculation has been adjusted to provide a continuous, modest increase of MMR for the rest of the season.
      • Developers’ note: We’ve been monitoring players’ rating distribution, and the percentage of players who have reached the rating requirements is much lower than we want it to be.

“The PvP rating calculation has been adjusted to provide a continuous, modest increase of MMR for the rest of the season.”

Cool, so the rating difference between duelist and glad will be 500 rating again, the highest teams will be at rating cap again and nobody will get any queues^^
Instead of just removing the rating requirement for gear you go with this braindead solution nice.
