    Just a simple question - Is this still being worked on or has it been scrapped? It's been silence for months (maybe over a year?) and it's been ages since the last class was revamped.

    Would be nice to know this is at least still something devs care about or it doesnt make sense to leave it 75% done and have necros be the worst dot class.

    It would definitely be more effective than dotting them.

    I AGREE!

    S T F U about Necro DoTs. They're not getting, "fixed." They're not broken. It's been far longer than a year that people have been asking about this; at this point it has to be a troll post. There is NO WAY anyone that visits the forums doesn't know this. NEWS FLASH: a game show host was elected as president. Oh yeah, some crazy religious fanatics knocked down two very large buildings in New York, and we landed on the moon! It turns out, it's not made of cheese! What a crazy world...

    Scornfire for POTUS 2020!

    Such anger. The posts keep happening because this has been going on since the dot revamp was announced. It has nothing to with being "broken" but it's more about delivering on a promise that's gone through for every other dot class save SK/Necro.

    But really, what about fixing necro dots?
  8. Thoxsel Augur

    They busy nerfing all dots that have been handed out first. Stay in line.
  9. Bigstomp Augur

    Gotta fix/nerf the other dots to make room for the necro dots.

    if you guys could see scornfires parses you would know for a fact necros are not broken, most just don't know how to play a necro.

    it's that or they can revamp necro dots...… give you 3 dots that are awesome and don't stack with any other dots...…… then nerf the crap out of them...... your choice. then you can eat pizza and suck

    People keep talking about necro parses but seem to be missing the point that its a class that is detrimental when you have more of them...

    Dot revamps were never about some kind of dps boost. They need it on progression for sure, but the underlying issue is the debuff limit.

    If the dot revamp is done in a similar manner to how the other classes where done it will cut back on the amount of dots each necro is casting because they will no longer be able to stack multiple expansions worth of dots. That change alone would go a long ways towards fixing the debuff limit as you have some necros casting 2-3 spell bars worth of dots currently.

    Don’t forget they will also cast themselves out of mana with like 5 dots

    Getting rid of the need of the epic 2 / 2.5 - granting a AA (or buyable for xxx amount) would be the very first step ild take for sorting necro dots

    That doesn't fix anything with the dot problem, just pushes it further down the line and lets nercos equip a different primary.

    People are getting very confused. Unlike most of these other dot revamps necros expect no bonus or penalty tacked on to what they get. So if they get a 15k base dot its because he combined 3 or 4 dots that they already currently used into a single dot. So the damage done and the mana costs was already happening its just that 4 casts became 1. Since this ramps them up a faster you also and concentrates their stacking you also need to reduce overall stack power elsewhere to even it out. So if they used 18 dots and that was 100,000k per tick in base power after he gets it down to 10 casts doing say 85,000k per tick in base power.

    He did not do this for anyone else and just gave them massive increases in base damage even if they never used old lines, never used multiple dot lines or because a particular dot line could not stack. They also got relative mana costs to go with that. This was all new to them as they previously did not have 15k or 40k in dot base power on mobs and they didnt expend that kind of mana for dots or dps in general. That was and is his glaring mistake.

    Necro epic is something else entirely and imo not something he should fool around with at the same time considering how many other factors are already in play at once. Unless they make it simple and just take the 8-10% and provide it from AA and cap epic at whatever level they set the AA line at.
