Fix Demonic Gateway
I would set it up at the start of the fight and it would last the entire time in that hall way.
Now I set it up and... poof its gone. Setup a 2nd time... Poof its gone.. I now dont even bother with it. Blizz had to of broke it.
It feels useless if you have to sit and baby sit the gateway. As it stands now the moment you walk away from it, "poof" and its gone.
Also stop poofing on death. I swear they purposely broke this because they knew it was going to be an integral part of the Kanrethad fight and wanted to annoy and slow warlocks down even more by having to constantly reset up their gateways.
Demonic Gateway is a friggin joke now. It's bugged.
It disappears for every imaginable reason now. In raids, in bg's, even in world pvp when I'm ganking horde in their base.
Just as well, the glyph of Felsteed/Dreadsteed walk on water ability.... it doesn't work in bg's. Or just about anywhere... sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't.
Killed myself a couple times jumping from a high point into water thinking it wouldn't work and boom. blizz troll. dead. -.-
I should add that I was able to set it up before the Sha of anger ( I always get the two sha's confused so I might have said the wrong name. It's the last boss in Terrace) pull multiple times earlier this week. But last night, after the hotfix Blizzard did, I was in HoF on the first boss. Demonic Gateway despawned after the pull every time. In the group I was in, it wasn't worth it to cast it after the boss was pulled since out dps wasn't all that great and loosing that first 4.4 secs to dps wasn't worth it.
Demonic Curse: Places a Fel Sigil on your target ripping them through the Nether to the location of your Demonic Circle. Target is dazed for 2 sec.
Id like something USABLE. With the afore mentioned bugs and issues regarding Gateway anything functional would be a step in the right direction.
Basically 5.2 has removed demonic gateway as a spell along with blood fear. Pretty serious nerfs, even if one is by accident.
Absolutely had me drooling when I first heard about it--naturally I thought it would be a party/raid version of the portal
Then came the implementation--wow.
Imagine if the game portal had been programmed by the same people how much of an anti-awesome experience that would have been.
So many things suck about this spell that they aren't worth listing.
It's a novelty only.
I have no sympathy for blizzard on this one--someone came up with a great idea and whoever oversaw it nerf'd it into ridiculous oblivion and then STILL put it in the game like they were giving warlocks something cool.
The fact that it despawns doesn't work whatever is entirely irrelevant--stop asking for scraps from the dinner table like the begging house mutt.
The only thing wrong with it is that it's buggy. It's always been buggy. It's useful in raids. Not every fight but it has it's uses. Not sure why you care about the cast time though, you shouldn't be trying to set it up during the encounter. It lasts 15 minutes, set it up before the pull.
He cares about the cast time because he (erroneously) believes that the bug causing it to disappear is an intended change to the spell. Working under that assumption, he has come to the conclusion that Blizzard intends for you to set it up multiple times during combat, and then yell something like, "Come with me if you want to live!" to the rest of your raid.
You are entirely demonstrating my point.
Sit, roll over, beg...c'mon beg some more
You are so used to settling for less that you don't even see it.
What should have demonic gateway been?
Is it that?
Then it shouldn't be at all and we should have had something else...not settle for something less.
At present, the gateway (when not bugged) works fine. It was amazing on fights in T14 (H Vizier and H Lei Shi I loved it), it's somewhat useful on Jin for a period of time, Horridon for a period of time, and Tortos for every stupid rockfall.
What good is it for me to be upset that the spell isn't some god portal that buffs me to 500% DPS every time I click it or something? I just don't see the point in complaining about things I have no control over, or wishing that things were better. It's not perfect but there are uses and I'll use it for them.
