World of Warcraft Developers Talk About Elemental Shaman Changes in Patch 7.2.5

Posted time: Jun 07,2017


Elemental shamans seem to be in the upcoming World of Warcraft: Legion Patch 7.2.5 in the rebalancing of fun. In response, they have started playing the World of Warcraft Forums and asked why that was the case - but it seems that the developers are satisfied with the current meaning of the course.

This is largely due to the nature of the change in other specifications - they are more mechanically problematic than the digital readjustment. This is Blizzard said a continuous process, and never really stopped.

Please note that almost all other specifications will get a change in one form or another - whether through a new mechanics or through changes to the way existing ones work. Element is one of the few exceptions.

Here is what Lore said on this issue:

The bulk of the feedback we're seeing (in this thread and others) is that Elemental is fun to play, it just doesn't deal enough damage in certain situations. That's the sort of situation that we'll solve through what we generally refer to as "tuning" - e.g, adjusting things like how much damage a spell does, the chance for an effect to activate, and so on. Based on the feedback, those sound like the sort of changes we'd consider for Elemental. 

Note that how we define a "mechanical change" vs "tuning" can be a bit blurry, which makes it difficult for us to communicate things like this sometimes. Suffice it to say that changes intended to alter the way you play your class are generally considered mechanical, while changes that simply adjust how effective your class is in certain situations are generally considered tuning. That's still not a perfect explanation but hopefully it helps. 

Moreover, tuning isn't a process that's ever really "complete." We constantly monitor class performance and make adjustments where we think they'll help, and fully expect to continue that in the weeks after Patch 7.2.5 releases. Additionally, it's important to remember that the effectiveness of your spec is measured comparatively to other specs; in other words, tuning down an overpowered spec is an indirect buff to everyone else. Sometimes - and I'm not saying this is the case for Elemental, because I'm honestly not certain off the top of my head - we'll decide that it's better to bring an outlier down than it is to buff everyone else. 

Then, retuning is purely a digital game. While this does effect how it makes your class "feel," it does not necessarily change how you'll play the game at its core. 

The World of Warcraft development team ended the post vy saying that they will pay close attention to this specification to see if this figure needs to be changed, because the Tomb of Sargeras patch will continue to move forward.
