That things are faster...
It doesn't matter who it targets, it essentially always spawns in melee, meaning it is trivial if it targets ranged. For it to not be a trash affix, it should randomly spawn near ranged as well when it targets them. Otherwise it's just another blatant anti-melee affix, as with most of the mechanics in the game.
Really annyoing play melee these times in wow , first week i dont run 10x14+ for sure. It makes no fun, its just aids to play.
I absolutely hate this affix. Or more specifically I hate the way ranged dps complains about my dps when this affix is up. As a melee dps I have to run away from the fights to avoid dying. This inevitably leads to lower dps on trash fights. And then ranged dps (usually hunters) will brag about how easy it is for them to handle the ghosts and accuse me of just being bad. Really easy to be cocky when the ghosts spawns far away from you and you can kill it before it even gets to you. All I can do is kite it at the cost of my dps. The hunters don't pay attention when I kick their ass in dps on the bosses though. Last week I timed three +15 keys. But I've had such horrible groups this week that I've just given up the idea of even completing a single key. Might as well just wait until next week. Almost no group will have me, and those that do collapse because some ranged prick thinks melee dps is too low and will leave the group. Seriously, there needs to be more affixes that affect ranged dps. At the moment there is only one affix that gives them any problem at all. And if you are a hunter and can move and shoot, then it doesn't bother you either. Ranged get off way to easily this season.
