7.2.5 Patch Day!!!

Not going to lie…I’m a tiny bit excited about today. Since the break, I’ve been thinking of nothing but getting back into raiding, nerfed or not!!

Going to briefly post pics of the changes in 7.2.5 with a follow-up comment on my thoughts after a day of playing. Oh before I start this is incredibly underwhelming….if it wasn’t for the pre-patch hype I would of easily not noticed that there even was a change. Bar some addons not working lol

Let’s start off with the only things announced that will be a certain, a Timewalking raid and a couple of tiny shit holidays where, and I had to re-read this, you can dance in an auction house. Jesus Blizzard…

Timewalking raids sound like fun, certainly something I would have enjoyed doing say, during a 16-month stint in Hellfire Citadel. Not now, there are bosses I’ve not have time to down from Trial of Valor, almost two instances ago! but sure, yeah, throw in an extra raid day with no loot incentive or meaningful rewards xD

I can almost picture the boardroom at Blizzard “How do we tackle, fix, this worldwide epidemic of raid burnout”…”I got it! Let’s put more raids in shorter periods and then…throw in another raid on top!” haha

On that note, I have also been trying to work out how the designer for this tier set managed to wrangle REUSING old work, can you imagine going to your boss and saying “I’ve not done any work, at all. I just thought we could just use old stuff. Could I also get a pay rise?” What a legend! What a lazy legend!

Next up is an ‘All New Story Scenario’ – the world’s biggest massively multiplayer online role-playing game* announces more solo content! Huge floods of content this expansion? perhaps from your point of view Blizz, as you’re making 11 times more content than we are seeing. Doubtful I’ll see any of this content at all due to the fact you’ve killed Alts!
*opinion, not fact ­čÖé

To be fair about this since the reduction of Artifact Knowledge levels recently, and randomly, before the patch, there is a lot more time to play Alts.

I’m not going to indulge, the trial of style, or the gnome race…apart from, what? what is this noise you making? it hurts my eyes to read.

As for this section, you might as well ignore it! Blizzard never gets the tuning down on patch day. It’s always a sad feeling when you’re super overpowered in the week before raiding. You know you’re getting the nerf hammer to the face. I always want to be mid pack, this way your class doesn’t change so much, you get a better feel for the playstyle before it’s really needed. Perhaps picking resto druid was a bad idea then lol.

Overall for this week at least, it’s a noticeable nerf for Resto. Ledgo shoulder nerf and 4% overall nerf on top of cultivation nerf.

Here is a full HC and first five Mythic that I managed to clear last night

First 7.2.5 Farm Raid

Very hard to tell from farm night how things are standing with each class, but overall, it feels like the amount of healing pumped out in general from all healers seems a little lower. I know there are a few classes on fights that can do 1+ million HPS throughout. Rarely seen that tonight.

Also difficult to tell without new ledgo or tier 20, or the damage pattern of the upcoming raid. Minor adjustments will be made though, like Cultivation.

Even with it beening hard to tell if Resto are viable in a scarely competitive guild it’s always

nice to see this for Mythic ranking…if only for a fleeting moment xD


Can we all take a moment for fallen comrades…

Narite – Resto D.o.R (date of raiding :)) End of Emerald Nightmare to Nighthold. Jumped onto the gap in our team nicely. Thankfully still with us, as a Holy Paladin. Best way to work around nerfs xD

Krocii – Holy Pala D.o.R well before my time one of the top healers when I joined at the start of Legion. The burn is real….

I’ve been working, ALOT on the marketing and social management of ‘Medacus‘. Starting streaming from scratch and learning how to overhaul the overlays and such, is more time consuming than I first thought lol

Starting to get there now with both Youtube and Twitch growing naturally. With that and a raid break the blog posts have slowed down….but no more!!! I’m back and supercharged for ToS. Expect rambles and bad annotates galore!!!
