    How about we start another cyclic complaint theme?

    I'll start with the half-broken affliction and dot recourse focuses!

    I did find a couple of cases (like Mith Marr) but they were rare. Destiny raid logs clearly showed that rangers were meleeing almost all cornered bosses.

    The precise AK conditions cannot be replicated. Archery can be used in some places here where it couldn't be on AK and some places where it can't but could be. Overall it's very AK-like. If I were making Torven EMU I'd just allow it but nerf the discipline to +50% and maybe tone down the base damage very slightly plus grant it reasonable hate, but this isn't a custom emu, (or at least isn't trying to be) nor is this my server.

    Could I spend more time on it and make it closer to AK? Sure. Then players would block arrows and you wouldn't hit walled mobs 90 degrees to walls. Then also PoP is delayed another two months. I want to focus on content for now.

    You know what would help with fixing dot issues?

    Parsing spell damage!

    Think that covers most of them. Oh and for good measure, one more time: Casino.

    See you in a month or two!

    Ooo was excited to see this pop in new posts. FYI ranger worked great on Vulak. So don’t know what all the complaining is about.

    Corners are crutches. Balance that pet and nuke push on the mob. Make rangers happy.
