When proc sets get nerfed

Can't wait to see garbage tiers get instantly exposed.

Particularly joyful will be the "stam blades are weak proc sets were the only things making them semi balanced" tears that are sure to come when you can't global 12k damage off an ambush

    I prefer crafting my own armor versus grinding BiS. Champion points and OP dropped sets deter me from vet PVP as I'd rather play a new class / race / build I haven't tried before in Kyne/Blackwater Blade and get the most out of my 9 trait crafter.

    Frontloading CP gains (read: level playing field, already implemented in Morrowind) and nerfing proc sets (I want to theorize then craft, not grind) would encourage me to step foot in CP PVP and Battlegrounds.

    That sounds really nice if you can back up the implication that proc sets are not a problem for game balance.

    Also there is such huge irony in you lamenting the death of skillful play while implying proc sets are fine if we just stopped whining and adapted.

    But by all means back up your sweeping moral judgments with some facts and reasoning. Just might save us meta slave peasants from being trash.

    Youre supposing that proc sets ARE a problem for game balance with no evidence yourself. Its pretty rich you would demand it from me but I'll insert an indisputable fact that might throw a monkey wrench into your logic.

    Players wear the armor.

    I know right? PLAYERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OUTCOME OF HOW THEY PLAY THE GAME.

    Its probably not what you wanted to hear but its 100% on you that proc sets are a problem for you. So rather than take responsibility for your shortcomings in this particular vein, you want to impose a game wide change to accommodate your issue.

    Thats the epitome of selfishness and to boot you want ME TO PROVIDE PROOF that your issue isnt a problem for game balance. GTFO

    I don't play a stamblade, but I'm honestly just going to sit back and laugh when the complainers start whining about getting wtf pwned by the next BiS build.

    It's OK... I'll have roughly an extra 670 weapon damage, do more sustain damage, and have better heals. :smiley:

    Aww did a proc sets touch you in the booty?

    I'm kidding but just think about if they didn't exist in the current game. Who kills magsorcs most of the time? And why is it mostly just stamblades?

    A sorc can outshield every other classes dps besides stamblade because they can fear them and burst their shields and MAYBE then kill them after that.

    A world without stamblades running proc sets is a sorcs world until they nerf sorc.

    They don't have to absolutely abolish anything. They won't be removed, and they won't be nuked into insignificance, I'm expecting a shield duration type change

    No they don't and probably won't. And I'm not really pro or anti proc but I think that nerfing one thing in an unbalanced game only makes others stronger. Procs are just one mistake out of many.

    Stam blades wearing proc sets don't annoy me in general, as I can usually roll away and get my heals and defense up, unless they're really good in which case doesn't matter. What does annoy is 1) multiple gankers at once all using vipers and selenes, overkill much? 2) multiple proc gankers with gank healer and gank tank, for real? 3) that annoying bug when you get hit with incapacitating strike I think, where you get knocked to the ground, and due to the bug or maybe lag you simply cannot cc break to get up.

    Viper and selene got 4 sec cooldown. Should be 8 sec.

    1v 1 I think proc sets are weak

    i´d argue that on a squishy dmg build vs a squishy dmg build + proccs proccsets are very strong.
    As soon as you set yourself up for high sustained dmg and tankyness proccsets become weak.

    And that would change what exactly? That you get attacked from invis every 8s instead of 4 and these sets become obsolete in pve?

    Yes relieve some pressure from these stamblades who can roll, troll with eternal, range with bow, shade, fear and burst every 4 sec.

    that is very true, stamina nightblades really are weak, we die easy and we dont do alot of damage unless we hit you from Gank and do all we can in under 3 seconds.
    because as soon as people get out of our damage spam they heal up and kill us.

    so your statement is true:
    "stam blades are weak proc sets were the only things making them semi balanced"

    it seems you play stamblade all wrong. You get in cc and burst then you get out with shade/cloak. If They dont die you repete. @dwemer_paleologist

    proc sets were meant to combat unkillable ppl, i nstead of fighting those unkillable sorcs, the blades turned their procs against everyone else except the unkillable> griefing got new element.

    look at zenimax failure to fight fire with fire> detonation bomb, shieldbreaker, ultimates, making meteor unreflectable, procmeta and future doesnt look much better than this.
