The main AE dot classes (Magus/Engineer) don't have AE detaunts, only ST ones- so it would not make a difference. Then there's the WP/DoK...Their one AE DoT is garbage...so again, not much of a difference.Telen wrote: ↑Sun Aug 05, 2018 12:16 pmI just dont think when you are damaging someone you should be able to cut their damage in half. It means you dont have to think about who you are dotting and is another invitation for tanks to just ignore their backline as they can just detaunt anyone. Also even though you dont balance around 1s and 2s it should be taken into consideration. Particularly when AM/Shaman now have a mechanic that you can use to keep decent hots on yourself at all times. The lower tiers were already a AM playground.
Maybe if detaunts were handled differently where aoe detaunts dont break on dots but the ranged st ones do. That way some of the aoe damage classes have a oh **** button and dot classes get a small window but cant just load up one target detaunt and forget then repeat.
As for 1v1v2s... AMs don't really need to dot dot detaunt anymore because morale gains are faster, so they can pop their m1 bubble to defend and spam cast balance essence, which heals for a lot, even with divine fury.
