"I think we need a form of mana regen, (though skills, baseline or even gear) that SCALES with gear. (IE APoC). It can be something totally new, but IMO its needed if our class is going to be competitive."
I am not a well geared WD at all, and on my way to 4 piece Zuni, I have to 2nd the above to address the issue on our resource. It is not really broken like some others say, you just need to manage the issue, with slow weapons or rotate primary to manage it. But the issue I see with our resource system is this, all WD are "forced" to have Zuni 4 piece to "manage" this lame issue and forced to have mana regen on equip where applicable. This invariable streamline all us WD into the funnel of 4 piece zuni or u OOM situation. And also makes most of the subpar zuni set pieces VERY expensive even thou they suck and the good ones just goes off they scale if they just have crit on it. This in my humble opinion is not what blizz said they wanted to have - diversity
So yes, it would definitely be good to have something like a APoC to address this issue, most class have some resource regenerator as passive or equip stat, barb has it, DH has it, wiz has it too, monk I am not too sure there, we are the only class which has to deal with on Kill passive for resource which is still subpar comparatively especially with the monster power and simply does not scale up for higher MP
So I guess our resource system needs some relook if we are to be weened off the 4piece zuni...
It is also very bad for the AH market as well, as right now standing, all WD are looking for crit pox or crit vision to make themselves good for hi mp content, if you dun have that keep looking. This only makes the market stagnant in the case of other good pieces or better rare by themselves but are not moving at all, just because they dun have a zuni in their names to fit into the set. I have seen some good rare rings with CC/CD for with 80 odd Int for less than a mil, and they are NOT selling...and our dear old pox with 80 odd Int and NO Crit chance are already a lucky steal if u get it for 2 mil...this is i think a very bad economic model for the AH where everyone is streamlined to that set only for our class. And all the rares are not moving... I dunno if that is true for other classes as well
