I can understand why uncapping AoE for tank specs is important, otherwise they could have threat issues on larger pulls and a lack of resources to spend on mitigation that is commensurate to the number of mobs being grouped up. However, removing AoE caps from DPS specs is just altering the fragile M+ balance that already exists between specs, i.e. specs without strong uncapped AoE are going to feel punished by this change as other specs pull further ahead of them without any playstyle change whatsoever.
Outlaw rogue is the ONLY spec that left capped. Srsly? Great way to gut OL.
Ive honestly never understood hard target caps, with the exception of maybe hunter shots where you can only grab X arrowsLike thematically I mean.Me swinging a hammer in a circle will hit everyone there, not hit 5 then just phase thru the rest. I just dont get it.
As MM Hunter - this is so bad, like we returning to BFA .... GJ community, thanks. AOE cap was much better than this.
why u want to change cap for some abilities to 8 and others to 5? game is unfair right now because of this idiotic caps and u want continue doing the same thing? why should some classes do massive aoe and others like bm hunter stay behind because of cap?
To all ppl whining about the abilities that were capped at 8 being downgraded to 5....Please read stuff before yiu start complaining, blizzard already tweeted they will not change the abilities that have 6-7-8 target caps. They will stay dealing 100% dmg up until their original target cap, for example bladestorm had 8 and will still do 100% up to 8 and then start square root scaling starting at the 9th target upwards....It is currently not on PTR like this, but will be changed in a future build.And for ppl already to lazy to do the research themselves: https://twitter.com/WarcraftDevs/status/1435745425034645505?s=19
