    i have been playing some random BGs and i find the bracket even more bursty than I last played! i thought i49, i54 and OP gems all have been fixed and therefore it isn't as bursty as before?

    my build is extremely selfish and i have a lot of vers and increased healing from my weapon enchant, yet i still find it bursty, how do other players enjoy the bracket?

    yes i am rusty and i am still setting up keybinds and clicking spells from spellbook, but the bracket doesn't feel healthy right now.

    Yes, the bracket has been bursty for like 1-2 years now. Meta is MM hunt/Surv hunt/ Destro Lock, healers are whatever, but disc preferred. It's been DPS-Centric ever since Shadowlands, which is a long departure from the healer-heavy meta in BFA where healers were pretty much unkillable. It's almost always better to build glass cannon because you don't need HP if you can kill your opponent fast enough

    edit: Broken artifacts and talasite gemshave been fixed. Ilvl 59 helm + i44 neck are not fixed, but those that have it are very rare

    Also because over the course of this xpac hunters and locks have taken the majority share of buffs and multiple rounds of it. Specifically surv.

    15% damage adds up when it’s the 6th iteration of it.

    The problem is that you have aged since you last played and according to science your reaction speeds are now slower, therefore the bracket appears more bursty

    Even worse when u run into Hunter premades with pocket heals….. :FrogeTorch:
    Let’s just say, running dungeons is looking very appealing this deep into SL’s…… ;)

    PvP is higher highs and lower lows... but PvE is consistently fun for me. I love soloing dungeons :PeepoGlad:

    What kind of buff are people getting with that trinket? Wowhead isn't helping me a ton with the scaling, showing 0 at this level. Is it just the full 100 int? :O

    No, just made it sink faster than if we were to wait until blizzard changes the lvl restriction

    Afaik waycrest manor is locked out of 20s, so I imagine it has something to do with conzil discovery. Has it been shared yet ?

    As it comes from BFA, does it can also proc with sockets and tertiaries ?

    This is exciting

    It's fineeee.. this trinket will get fxed eventually as the scaling is way off .. a level 50 version is 112 int so yeah go figure.

    on the bright side of things, all the fotm hunters are about to get lots love from the casters getting this trinket so pay back is a bitch.
