Soon procs will get added back.
And my preparations for it has been gathering all kinds of essentials for proc play, testing out Malacath and whatnot.
And I must say if not running solo bg's proc sets are just anti fun to a whole another level.
Playing IC is quite fun until you run into a metaslave, death recap is always something stupid like "Force shock" into 80% different procs to damage for the kill.
Worst is running into an auto attack sorcerer with Valkyn Skoria being their kill condition with free sustain out of their bum that makes them tankier than a no-proc no-cp heavy armor player in Cyrodiil.
I don't even care about the balance of proc play, if the combat is unfollowable it's just not worth playing, the classes have been balanced well enough for me and the combat has been understandable without procs, but with procs on anything can be anything and it's not fun going back to the old train groups running whatever procs they can to indirectly kill people.
Currently in Cyro if a caster starts a combo I can weight my options, if a bow user snipes me I can compare his damage to mine and duel with that information, and if a 2h bruiser charges at me there's actual timing windows for blocks and doges to fight back.
With procs on who knows that will happen at any given situation, I duel a person and their time to kill can be wildly different each encounter, if I run into a group the death recap is just an absolute joke.
Man, what I would give for a pauper campaign, no procs, no CP and alliance locked.
And well even for once to try it out, the playerbase can decide then what to run, and if the majority would play with procs I would understand and quit the game happy, but to have the current play removed with no options to go even remotely back to an understandable class balance it just feels sad.
