Its because of PvE. Crap like that is not broken in PvE and that is what this game is balanced around. Do not forget that. Also, DoT damage was nerfed and MB/MS damage buffed because of PvE as well. Players were spamming dots on trash pulls and pulling better numbers than they were if they had been using their AoE intended abilities (i.e. Mind Sear). No Priests wanted a DoT nerf and a MB/MS buff.. but Blizzard felt that trash pulls, which are incredibly insignificant in PvE btw, were more important that PvP balance.

Let me map a priority list out for you so that you can refer to it in the future:

1. Money
2. Money
3. PvE
4. Mages
5. Companion pets
6. PvP

Why weren't you training the Priest so hard he couldn't cast MB in the first place? I mean... you're a Warrior.

So doing 3s tonight at around 2150mmr we happened across a Shadowplay team and I documented being hit as hard as a Frost Mage's Shatter:

Instant 68,862 damage through 4635 resil (44.5% damage reduction). I have seen mastery stacking Mages hit for these sort of numbers in a Shatter but a SPriest? I wish Warrior could hit that hard with full LttS, all CDs popped and a full rage-bar execute... but sadly I have never seen HALF that amount of damage even on targets with less resil.
Too bad warriors don't have spell reflect, or a way to jump behind LoS.

, wasn't instant damage, MB is a cast time,


IIRC spike x3 makes MB instant.

So there was casting going on and it is avoidable but the MB would be instant.

2 spikes make it instant, but 3 gives it the 90% crit chance.

Zero experience lock says 25s Spell Reflect & LoS is the solution for a Warrior vs Shadowplay?

lol

Mabad; must have been a L2P issue on my part since I was interrupting a lock fear at the time and my healer was deathcoiled. I'll see what I can do, thx for the invaluable information...

Been an issue for a while - if you're familiar with shadow mechanics you'll usually have a decent idea of when this is coming, but that doesn't really change the fact that mind blast is too much burst. No idea what blizzard were thinking nerfing dots and buffing mind blast halfway through cata...


but cata pvp will be less burst and more "wounded" state

lol mop will fix it

Not nit pciking here but, wasn't instant damage, MB is a cast time, one that could possibly be avoided with LoS, Pummel, Spell Reflect (Which would have reflected both spells).

Other than that ya hard hit, perfect world scenario for that priest. Shadow Orbs + Trinkets = KAPOW!. Whereas us mages can do it quite often =/


Often = Every 2 minutes with a Mastery trinket proc'd.
