First off, 2 threads I feel really get my point across:

  • The guild perk, The Quick and the Dead, now increases the movement speed of dead players by 10%, down from 100%.


  • Seriously? First you remove Have Group, Will Travel, the most useful guild perk in the game, and then you destroy this one, in a hotfix? Not to mention getting rid of the useful flask perks.

    You might as well remove Mass Resurrection while you're at it.

    There goes world PvP in Stormwind City and the Deeprun Tram. Back to 5-10 minute corpse runs.

    Is there an explanation for this? Did they not want people rushing to their corpses after dying on a World Boss? Was it not more sensible to just DISABLE the ability to release spirit during a world boss, to prevent this? Was that not the easier route?


    Why in the world was this perk nerfed? This absolutely kills any sort of city PvP, since the attacking force will be forced to endure 5 minute corpse runs every time they die. I just simply don't get why this was nerfed.

    This brings me to my second point, and the point of the second thread. Why no explanation for the nerf? One of the things that has always annoyed me with Blizzard's sudden nerfs and buffs is that we RARELY get an explanation for it. Base game mechanic massively overhauled? Good luck trying to understand WHY it happened. I know during Cataclysm Ghostcrawler occasionally DID explain why a spec/class/mechanic got nerfed, and I would really like to see this come back. So far we've gotten NO explanation as to why the guild perk was nerfed. I think a LOT of people would really appreciate a decent explanation on why TQatD was nerfed.

    RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!


    Schnitzel? Go home Schintzel you are drunk!
    I dont think any reason to why it was removed would even make sense though, world boss GY spamming? Rezz wait time and it will be outta date in 5.1.

    Thats the only possible reason someone suggested. I just wish they would fix it, its the little things like this that made the game funner. I liked being super ghost :(

    After playing for 2 weeks with no HGWT, I honestly say i don't even remember it being there.

    After the quick and the dead being gone or whatever, I don't even notice it was gone either.
    This made getting back to my body less annoying... and now it hit that level of stupid that none of us will understand.

    I can honestly say I don't see a rational reason why they nerfed it but I'd love to read an explanation in a heartbeat.
    How often are people dieing that this needs to matter? Although I do agree it was amazing.

    How often were people summoning other people using HGWT needs to matter?


    It doesn't, at least to me. Was nice to have, now it's gone. Wasn't a big deal for me. Neither is this.
    Tooltip in game still reads 100%.

    It sorta mattered. There was no reason to take it away that couldn't have been fixed in a less awful way.

    Everyone should know by now that tooltip changes are late. Kill yourself and see how fast you move with the perk. It won't be 100%
    I THOUGHT my corpse runs recently felt slower...

    Oh no I know it has been nerfed, by no means do I agree with them. I am holding out hope they are changing it back this is just a test.
    Remove mass ressurection? Don't give them any ideas because that's probably gonna be next.

    Have group, will travel (don't I wish!),
    I want the new perk they gave us for this to be replaced. Honestly who uses Flight Paths that much?
    What explanation could they give that would satisfy you and not just cause argument?
