Damnit, I figured I was done posting for Thursday, and here comes the biggest freaking Druid Tank news I can imagine on a slow and dreary Thursday.
According to WoW Insider, tonights new PTR build has a host of area effect abilites NOT breaking CC types that normally breaks on damage, like Sap and Sheep.
And among those listed is our good friend, Swipe.
God bless Blizzard. Trees, I’m sorry, I feel your pain about Lifebloom, especially since the Warlock whining apparently got the Lifetap nerf rolled back, but Swipe don’t break CC?
To quote the PTR official patch notes;
Seriously. Holy freaking….
And it’s not limited to Druid loving… many other classes get stuff like this too.
Is it too carebear? Does it eliminate a large part of the need for Tanking Druids to actually use skill and manuever mobs into positions from which to maintain aggro without breaking CC?
Well, I don’t know yet. I would think that it will take some of the fun out of playing a tank and maintaining situational awareness.
I DO know, it looks like this might signal the end of one of the longest running jokes/screams/cries in the entire game….
“WHO BROKE MY SHEEP!?!?!?!”
