hopefully it gets into working order so it gets decent testing. i half expect it to get reverted with a 'here's your dead seal back, don't expect anything for the rest of the expac' or something, though. ;p

Well I'd certainly prefer the old one to this new one, since I want a snare and FoJ.
No need to apologize, unless you had a hand in designing it. My rudeness was for the developers, not you for pointing it out.
Ah, misunderstood where the vitriol was aimed at. Sorry for that, instead. :P
But I won't lie. I wanted to be optimistic about the SoJ change, but having actually used it...it's not faring well for the Seal. Either they keep the change and leave Rets pretty frustrated trying to wrap their heads around its usage, or else they leave it as is and leave Rets pretty frustrated around nothing being done.
I also feel like they tried too hard to reinvent the wheel for Ret, and at too late a juncture for them to actually test and polish out these changes...with three weeks left for the patch's projected launch, it's not looking well.
What confuses me is, they could just add a small buff to the current SoJ to provide more consistent burst. Unless ~18-20% weapon damage just pushes it past Truth, it seems like that should add quite a bit of impact to consistent burst.

I know. Ugh.
02/14/2013 08:43 AMPosted by GrôgnárdHow're you guys handling Hero and burst on that fight?
We're heroing at the start at the moment since you can hero twice in that fight and we hero the next time after a return from the platforms with the buff. As for burst everyone tries to save one CD for the platforms at least.
For instance at the start I use Wings and Guardian for the Hero burn and save HA for cackle, if I'm not cackled first HA goes into DPSing the Sha/adds.
We're still playing with things, we have the fight mostly figured out, people just need to stop randomly going derp.

Silly Panda, Librams are for Paladins. Shoo, back to your Totem.
02/14/2013 10:05 AMPosted by LobsterPain is wiping on an attempt you've already invested 15+ minutes on. Sha is a 20ish minute fight or so... the lowest we've gotten him is 30%. I don't know who at Blizzard thinks really long and really annoying fights are fun, but I want to punch them. I want to punch them a whole bunch.
Lobster, going to Wondercon?

02/14/2013 10:01 AMPosted by PaladinchazYea thats really the only hard thing about that fight, its an incredibly boring fight.
It is rather dull, I don't think I really have a favorite fight in this Tier though.

The longer the fight the more epic it is.....amirite?
Seriously though, DW 2.0 booooooo.
At least there's no random fall to your death glitch in this fight.
