Calm before the storm, it is any day now, the birth of a future hokage to get cheap RS gold.
It is pretty amazing to see a rogue with zero Uldular raid gear at 4000 plus AP, but that is exactly what Bodil accomplished as his RMP became the first RMP (and fifth team overall) to hit 3000. Thanks to the tremendous resilience buffs, even Reckful-kun is using pretty much the same set-up about runescape gold. 5/5 season 6, ring/neck/cape, and BOE leather belt/boots, full AP gems, and you get to dish out some pretty impressive damage without any real raid gear. A lot of Wreckful success in the past were (unfairly) associated to his incredible gear, but with his transfer to BG9 he probably will not be able to keep up raid wise and it should silence a lot of his critics.
While 2v2 is no longer considered a serious bracket, I have to ask, can any combo beat lock/healer at the highest level? Resilience change nerfed everyone damage but vs rs2, DOTs did not lose any damage at all. With fel domination on a 3 minute cool down, pet scaling and 10% additional damage reduction, and of course, DK nerfs, warlock is without any question the strongest 2v2 class at the moment. I am glad Blizzard did the right thing and kept Blizzcon in rs2 to get cheap RS gold.
rs2 are really balanced around S7/T9 gear, as damage increase from new gear can make-up for the survivability increase. In the mean time, I noticed rogue specs with only a single set of CDs gained quite a bit more popularity. Hunger for blood is getting some serious playing time as 20% higher sustained damage over 41/5/25 is just too good to pass up when you are mostly playing long games against heavy plate.
