Broken Glyph Procs in BGs

Hello,

Just been looking up why I am being killed almost instantly in PVP Battlegrounds. When I check the toggle for death recap it is all oblivion glyph damage... not even a light attack in between.
Obviously this is completely broken. Not very enjoyable. I like my mag sorc but boy its the bottom of the barrel right now...Really want to farm the new sets but this is just beyond a joke.
And people are flocking to this like flies to faeces...

    Just play nightblade. Incap will be up faster than your overload. :#

    I don't see how one can reliably counter at all.

    The only requirement is to cast a single melee range ability and you can expect 2k+ dps (real PvP damage)

    That's significantly higher than say Overwhelming Surge set.

    The application is so easy, purge is useless.

    The only "counter" is to be not hit - not much of a counter if you ask me.

    I saw poor betty boom in the same bg I was in. two duoing werewolfs wrecking betty's team and mine. they went a perfect combined 34-0. every recap was damage health oblivion glyph proc and the defile glyph proc.

    it's extremely strong - werewolf with torugs / blood moon. they have it all. good defense, good heals. a fantastic fear CC and incredible uptime on glyphs via LA's that do insane dmg and melt you via glyphs.

    overall murkmire experience: 4/10 - would do again.

    Bloodmoon wouldn't really affect the Torug glyph proc. The cooldown is near 2 sec, no matter how fast you la you won't make the cooldown shorter.

    Have you tried playing something other than an overload sorc?

    I've had my fair share of salt over Betty overload ganks in the past, but let's be honest, that spec is pretty tame right now.

    It's roughly doubling the damage on your light weaves—but it costs a GCD to activate during which you deal no damage, and it freezes your ultgen as an additional f-you. From my tests, even DBoS (which is super gimped on magsorc) deals more burst AND more overall damage over the typical duration of a combo.

    Yeah the new meta sucks and needs to be adjusted, but under NO circumstances should any part of ESO combat be balanced around Battlegrounds. Proc damage in general is overpowered in Battlegrounds due to the lack of CP to bolster healing and mitigation, but changes to traits and gear sets or anything else that affects the rest of the game should not be made to appease aggrieved Battlegrounders.

    You guys CHOSE No-CP, you BEGGED ZOS over and over not to have CP Battlegrounds, so you're just going to have to live with the consequence that you are vulnerable to every cancerous proc meta that comes along!

    ZoS missed this even though we told them multiple times during the pts cycle that this is broken...

    But they are aware of it and will change it as quickly as possible.

    So , in other words, come back next dlc... Gotcha.

    I don’t feel sorry for Betty at all.

    When playing broken overload gank build - “everything is fine and I abuse broken stuff, why not”.

    When something counters him - “ZoS, save me, evil stamina kicks my ass”.

    Get rekt and try playing something different for a while, maybe will help you to get better.

    Yes, new meta is cruel for magsorcs. Is it much worse than sloads / viper / insert-your-most hated-thing-here? I doubt. Will it get fixed? Yes, in a few months, just as usual. For now just craft torugs and enjoy smashing people with bleeds and spin to win, I see no reason not to do it.

    After all, we all asked for fast-paced combat, and that’s exactly what we got. Be careful with your desires next time.

    Sincerely yours, magsorc main since 1.6.

    Mag DK here... calurions, valk, tourogs. Rending slashes Dw front bar and lightning destro back bar with force pulse. All infused. Embrace the cheese. Only run in bg's dir shots and giggles at times and rarely on world unless I'm solo cause it's really not great in anything other than 1v1's.

    While ZoS really messed it up it wouldn't be half as bad if people had some selfrespect. People come up with a plethora of excuses to use the most broken *** when in reality 99% of it is just people taking the easy way.

    It's not as good as ppl make it out to be. 1v1 it's disgusting but it's still single target and you can purge the bleeds in small grps o2 if your a templar negating the procs. I honestly find my regular build much better for small grp play and I have tried it

    I don't see how purge helps when it only takes Rending to reapply it

    Like I said in 1v1 its op... in small grps kn kn experience and I run with some good healers.... purges and purifies do the job because they are dead if they wanna stand that close to a grp so they dont get to reapply like you think. In theory you would be right but in practice it's much different. Decent healer in a 4-6 man and it just doesnt have the same impact as in a 1v1
