Its more of a trend. Some bigshot streamer or guide says they are great and the fans jump on it and then the statistics show the picture. Especially with a rather playing at the limit and the majority being fanboys who play what guides tell them to play.
Yeah I know I've switched to Vengeance for Torgast runs, M+ etc. It's very good spec right now but with DH having two specs and Havoc being awful from not only poor single target DPS but also zero survivability there is just a lot more vengeance DH in the game now so not surprised. It seems you get a floating pool of a class that moves to the best spec. E.g.Your not going to see as many blood DK with unholy's dominance for the same reason.
Dont worry, once warriors and BDK outgear the content, they will be awesome.
It is absolutely absurd that Elysian Decree has not been nerfed to the ground yet.
And still blizzard has no god damn clue about what to do with blood dks. Purely sustained by self heals doesn't work when the damage we take eclipses the amount of healing we can do.
Basically what I've gotten from this comment section is two things:1) Vengeance demon hunter should be nerfed to the ground, ignoring (buffing) the rest of the tanks and just letting the playerbase deal with it.2) Tanks should just face tank everything, damage be damned, instead of actively working to avoid damage when possible
like you said, that's your opinion. not everybodies.
For those saying jumping or kiting tanks is bad and it stands against what a tank is yes I agree, but like garrosh said "Times Change".I'm a tank and I personally hate the kiting but here we are I guess. This xpac made the WORST trash and some affixes are hell for melee. And DH work well with the situation. Also is their time to shiny, they sacrifice everything for like 2xpac. Give them a break. Also blizz knows they are OP,it just take a patch notes to break the. *fingers crossed* they don't touch them.
If kiting tanks are going to be the fad of the game, then AoE spells need to be updated to this mechanism. I'm tired to wasting my Blizzards, Flamepatches, Tar Traps etc when the tank moves the trash all over the instance. The only classes that almost doesn't care about this are MM Hunters and Moonkins which no doubt are the loved childs of this expansion.
What about buffing other tanks to be as strong instead of nerfing the one that performs? Vengence still has to kite like others its just that the mobility makes it easier. Also if u talk about dmg go and check out protection paladin and their insane ^&*!ing dmg (5-7k ST and 10-15 aoe)
