PTR Rollup: More PVP Tweaks

by on Jan.28, 2011, under General, PVP Discussion

As promised, there have been some more PVP tweaks made in the latest 4.0.6 builds.

  • Moonkin Form now grants 15% damage reduction instead of increased armor. In addition, shapeshifting in or out of this form now breaks roots. Note this is not stated in the tooltip.
  • Sudden Eclipse now restores 20 Solar or 13 Lunar Energy. Up from 5 Solar or 7 Lunar.

The change to Moonkin Form is nice, it’s basically giving us Disentanglement.  I’m curious to see if they meant “all rooting effects”, (such as frost nova).  I’d hope so.

The Sudden Eclipse change (4pc PVP bonus) seems like a pretty drastic one, although I would have expected it to grant 20 lunar and 13 solar energy.

Your thoughts?

I apologize for the tardiness in my posts.  I have been really busy working away from home (but in sunny Southern California) the last few weeks, and will continue to be working here through June.  I’ve stopped raiding at this point and you guys are my only connection to my World of Warcraft world!  Also, kudos to Balourd for stepping in and posting in my absense.

    My guess would be it is to make it easier to get to Solar Eclipse (hell it is the only eclipse a pvper is gonna really ever want to be in). Since that is also the hardest to get (Starfire chain cast and all that) the compensation might be that the set bonus gives us a bit of a push when we do get interrupted. Just my guess.

    I haven’t even pvped yet. 8 honor points on my new druid so far. I’m guessing sunfire/insect swarm, typhoon, mushrooms, sunbeam, roots and starsurge procs are what we’re focused on?
    Maybe the 4 piece bonus should be something that locks the moonkin in solar eclipse, or lets him be in it longer?

    “Maybe the 4 piece bonus should be something that locks the moonkin in solar eclipse, or lets him be in it longer?”

    I wish blizz would do that for pvp purposes considering we don’t get enough time to achieve eclipse in a regular BG or on a 1v1. It would help considering we keep getting nerfed. (Sunfire spam FTW!!!)

    My account is canceled and I still don’t feel the urge to renew it. The current state of PvP is plain retarded. The PTR patchnotes aren’t any good either.
