Nitpick if you want, but the damage is so minimal if it exists that it doesn't matter.
Actually the difference is huge. If your raid is missing a buff and you don't provide that buff in order to bring the pet you like... that is a huge damage loss.
Doesn't seem broken to me, it's recharging the exact same way my 2x Hands do (ie. Freedom, I can pop it twice, using both charges, but they recharge in order, with the first 25 seconds recharging the first charge, and the second 25 doing the second).
So... you're complaining that your recharge mechanic is working the same way as everyone else's, and that's not fair?
I am complaining that it isn't working the way GC said it would work. Do people even read the OP? They said they were buffing deterrence in compensation of the removal of readiness, so they give it 2 charges but then they increase the cooldown by 1 minute. Then GC said it would result in 2 deterrences every 3 minutes but it is 1 deterrence every 3 minutes.
I am 'complaining' that they said they would buff it, but instead they massively nerfed it and now the ability is in a much worse spot from before when it wasn't even close to being too strong to begin with. Hunters already had some of the weakest PvE defensive abilities and now we have it a lot worse. The nerf was uncalled for and unnecessary and they kept referring to it as a buff when it is obviously a nerf, and a huge nerf at that.
I think he was more upset at the fact GC either didn't understand it or simply explained it wrong, and wants an apology for it. So... yeah. I've seen Spinner post from time to time, and he likes to complain. A lot.
I am sorry if this thread comes off as complaining to you, but that's not really my problem. I like it when abilities are broken and then they are fixed. I don't like it when GC says that an ability will be buffed, actually explaining exactly how the charge system will work (which was completely wrong) when confronted with the claim that the implementation (the one on live right now) would be a nerf. Deterrence did not need nerfed, it was not too strong, it got nerfed by a huge amount and there is absolutely no evidence anywhere to show that blizzard even knows it. GC said it was working as intended but he never refuted his other tweet explaining how it incorrectly worked.
The ability was nerfed hard when hunters already had weak defensives in PvE. That is the main issue with the change, but it makes it a lot worse that they haven't spoken a word of it, that they stated that it would be a buff and that GC actually explained how the recharge mechanic would work on twitter. All of these things combined makes a post like this in gen discussion completely necessary.
let me get this straight, anytime blizzard doesn't work an ability the way people are expecting, we should get refunds?
It's not only the way people are expecting, it is the way that GC said it would be changed. He said it would be a buff, it's not. He explained how the charging would work, he was wrong. Now deterrence has a huge nerf for no reason and there is no post from a dev or GC explaining it or even acknowledging it.
I don't want a refund, I want them to fix deterrence. That's why I put "Fix it" in the thread title.
