THIS CONTEST HAS CONCLUDED

Below, we have posted the winners as well as the questions we submitted to Trion. All who participated have received one month free Magelo Premium Service!

  • Blue indicates a first prize recipient.

Rogue

Mythblaze: Will the Rogue class see a review of synergy for DPS and Tanking souls?

Q: During the last several patches, there have been attempts to balance rogues from the DPS and PvP perspectives. As an end-result, many players are experiencing difficulties with Area of Effect tanking. Are there plans to review this, or are we seeing a general move away from Rogue tanking?

Mage

Davroth: With Infernal Dawn on the horizon, what are the short and long term goals for mage raid gear itemization? Is a change to the spell crit mechanic being considered or are we moving toward spell power as a primary desirable stat?

galahadkoa : Since the last patch, it seems like the mage has less variety when it comes to PvP, with some older builds no longer being useful and the majority now playing a Pyromancer/Dominator hybrid. What are the plans to evaluate and even out the other souls to allow more versatility in pvp combat?

Q: Are there any plans in the near future to increase Chloromancer throughput in PvP?

Warrior

Dhomal: Will we see a viable option for Warriors to be Support at any point?

Mithalar: Around 1.4, players would see more switching between tanking specs for different encounters. (for example: VK for magic reduction, Deep Pally for average damage, and so on). It seems some of the more recent changes have affected this. Is this working as intended? (i.e. Are we seeing an overall consolidation of the warrior tanking specs?)

Cleric

Bctrainers: At this point, cleric melee maximum uptime builds require little to almost no movement. Is this working as intended? What is your vision in the future regarding the cleric melee builds?

Q: There have been some voiced concerns that some of the itemization of the 4-piece Cabalist sets as well as the Synergy Crystals no longer reflect the role of this soul. Are there plans to revisit this? If not, what are the visions for this soul going forward?

Mage

With Infernal Dawn on the horizon, what are the short and long term goals for mage raid gear itemization? Is a change to the spell crit mechanic being considered or are we moving towards simply stacking spell power? This applies in a broader sense to all four callings.

Chloromancer Mage PVP

When will chloromancer mage become more viable in PVP? As it stands, chloromancer doesn't hold a candle to clerics in terms of single target/instant cast healing (being on a 10 sec cooldown minimum) and survivability. With less amount of armor (cloth -> chain) and no HOTs compared to a healing cleric, if a chloromancer gets targeted right off they really have no chance of keeping themselves up; whereas a cleric's damage negation from their chain armor combined with thier instant heals/ hots/ and instant crits allows them to have MUCH more survivability in PVP if targeted.

Rogue -

What are your future plans for bringing Rogue tanking closer inline with Warriors? As it stands right now, rogues can tank in Hammerknell, but not to the effectiveness of a Warrior. And as we saw with HK's release, rogues struggled to tank throughout the raid instance. Some think it will be the same way with ID. While yes we have seen a few changes, our HP is still lacking by 3-4k in full relic HK gear when compared to Warriors, and our Physical mitigation is still way less.

Can we expect to be on par with Warriors in ID?

Cleric

Will Cleric DPS ever be brought to the level of Warriors, Mages, and Rogues? As of 1.7, Cleric DPS is far behind the DPS of the other classes of the same gear level on most fights. Is the main role of the Cleric to provide Heals and support DPS and also tank, or do you plan to make Cleric DPS a little more viable in future progression raiding? Thanks!

Rogue

Will the Rogue class see better synergy with the souls for DPS and Tanking? Example, Saboteur lacks synergy with the other souls.

Warrior:

All the other callings have three (4 for cleric) options. Will we see a viable option for Warriors to be Support at any point? Warlord is a good start, but it does not really hold up enough to be as useful.

Thanks

Warrior

A few patches ago around 1.4 there used be a lot more switching between tankings specs for different encounters. (VK for magic reduction, Deep Pally for average damage and other utility specs).
At least in the lower end of the raiding spectrum this is the case.
Nowadays there is a cookie-cutter build, with a few tweaks here and there.

Is Trion looking to put forward many different tanking specs rather than a narrow spectrum of which to choose from?
