Theory Crafting in Alpha

Director: Squint against the grandeur!
Hail Caesar! (2016)


All Hail Celestalon!

I don’t know if this ever happened in past expansions. Celestalon has opened a thread on theory crafting! Answers are wonderful!

The link to the forums is here. Check it out, scroll through pages and pages and find the answers to your favorite class spells!


Example:
Posted by Azortharion
How will you treat Hunter pet (and summons) inheritance of things like AP and other stats in Legion?

Summons being..

Main pet
Hati
Dire Beast
Stampede
Others I’ve probably forgotten..

Main Pet: 60% AP, 60% AP->SP, 170% Armor, 70% Health, 125% Focus Regen.
Hati & Dire Beast & Black Arrow: 115% AP, 20% AP->SP, 125% Armor, 20% Health.
Stampede is not a summon.


Another Example:
The only AoE heal that explicitly chooses the lowest-health of all damaged targets is Wild Growth.

Not going to list every heal spell, but a few off the top of my head with more custom targeting:
–Efflorescence favors targets without the Spring Blossoms HoT.
–Power Word: Radiance favor players without Atonement, then players with Atonement, then non-players.
–Renewing Mist will choose a random player who is both injured and without the caster’s Renewing Mist. If there are none, it will not jump.
–Essence Font will attempt to heal 18 people over the course of its channel. On each attempt, it will choose a random target who was not healed in the previous 5 attempts. If there are none, it will not heal.


It is the little things going into an expansion like this that make gaming fun.
