WoW-Balancing

R.I.P. Warriors: WoW-Balancing geht weiter

Blizzard kurbelt weiter an der Game-Balancing-Schraube des Fantasy-MMOs World of Warcraft. Krieger und Frost-Magier sind bei dieser Runde die größeren Opfer, Moonkin, Ele-Shammy und der Unholy-Todesritter können sich hingegen über die Aktualisierung freuen.

Obgleich die Entwickler den Hotfix auf Stufe 100 des Spiels gemünzt haben, sind dessen Auswirkungen nun schon spürbar. Frostbolts zum Beispiel verursachen angeblich nun 20% weniger Schaden und Wirbelwind beim Krieger sogar ganze 30 %. Mehr Unheil jedoch richten ein Fass des Beastmaster-Jägers (20%) oder ein Geißelschlag vom Todesritter an (50%!).

Für WoWer kamen die Nerfs und Buffs nicht allzu überraschend. Wie den Kommentaren in Foren zu entnehmen, erwischt es stets dieselben Klassen bei den Hotfixs. Und ob man den Kriger noch schlechter machen, das sei auch mal dahingestellt.

Am Mittwoch konnten Fans auch alle WoW-Änderungen im battle.net nachlesen… was den Diskussionen (und Teilverwirrungen) aber keinen Abbruch tat:

Giving everyone a heads up on class balance changes that could potentially take effect as early as later tonight. Many of these changes may not be reflected in tooltips.

These changes are primarily aimed at level 100 balance, but they will have reasonable effects in the meantime as well. Please keep the comments constructive, and we expect to be making a few additional tuning changes in the future.
