Joy of joys! Ghostcrawler stated flat-out in an interview that they know melee are seen as unfavourable this expansion, so tier 13 is going to give melee a slight dps buff.
But wait… what’s this?
Very next paragraph talks about how the Deathwing fight is going to be awesome, fighting adds and… introducing a ‘balance’ mechanic where players are encouraged to stand still. Wait a sec… melee need to chase mobs, right? Which means we don’t get to stand still a whole lot…
Yeah. Fuck you, Mr. Street.
The problem is not so much DPS, especially in casual guilds. The problem is that the mechanics punish the melee playstyle.
A pitiful fucking DPS buff is not going to make up for the fact that your designers have been shitting all over melee in the name of showing off how many mechanics they can throw at players at the same time. By the sound of it, this is just going to be a goddamned band-aid to excuse the design team running off to grind off what’s left of our nuts again.
Yes, this is a kneejerk reaction. But I’m getting sick and fucking tired of my preferred playstyle being a fucking black sheep.
Try harder, you useless cuntflap.
