"snapshotting" to be fixed

HOW THE FACK IS GEAR SWAPPING AN EXPLOIT??


Go look what this 'no exploit in your opinion' does on MP10:

its not exploit unless the monk use macro. its just bad design on the SW skill where ppl make the most out of it ever since blizz made changes to the inna set. come to think of it, i think its blizz whom promoted this gear swaping by changing the inna set where they knew about the SW mechanic from day 1.

p.s. the monk in the video is around 4.5m eDPS, which can be done without macroing.

that's skill mechanics. If you don't know how to boost it doesn't mean that's a bug or exploit

he's doing gearswap, if you see video you can see his gear DPS is 25k... nothing do do with the 'working as intended' ... blizz never intended people to abuse a skill by swapping gear, and yes its done with macro most likely.

they combatted MF swapping by introducing paragon lvls that slowly raise your MF/GF. I say they should let SW stack up tp 100, increasing the DMG with each stack. If any gear is swapped during SW all your stacks fall off. This would eliminate gear swapping and it fits nicely into the inna's 4-pc "SW maintenance" playstyle.

It's still overpowered without using macros.

Whether you apply the "exploit" or "mechanics" label doesn't matter - Blizzard's decided to fix it in 1.0.7.

That how it works. Using ur logic, it should be forbidden to use BF and DR to buff ur skill cos it has effect during certain period of time. Using macros is against the agreement so ask Blizz to use ban hammer, that's it

@ Raticus79

oh yes there is a huge difference.
by fixing an exploit, means its our fault. thus haters point at monks.
by changing an mechanic, its blizz's fault.
=D

but it will get some change anyways.

If Blizzard considered it an exploit, they would have patched it with a hotfix, like they did with whatever Mantra in the opening weeks of D3 (Healing maybe?), like they did with the Wizard Archon trick, etc.

It is not an exploit, it was simply poor game design that players figured out how to take full advantage of.

Honestly, I have been casting blinding flash, then mantra of conviction, then sweeping winds, ever since the beginning. It makes sense that it would keep those bonuses. Anybody who played a lot of WoW used those sorts of techniques all the time. I thought it was just a nice synergistic way to build some power, I never thought of it as an exploit at all.

Takes too much effort to do this in HC. Although i always wait for my friend to cast big bad voodoo and another monk to use ret mantra to get more out of it. But if they do something about it, then it less stressful for me because i often need to right click the buff when i get frenzy shrine, recast faith in the light and blazing wrath. anyways Cheers we getting buffed next patch.

FYI, you don't need Overawe up and running in 3-second-boost mode when you activate Sweeping Wind. In fact, you can activate MoC after-the-fact and still get the bonus.

how about everytime you refresh SW manually or hitting something to refresh it, it take a snapshot again. that is the best fix.


This would be wonderful! I hate when I start SW unbuffed by mistake and have to wait for it to time out before recasting.
