    RBG FC news

    Ok so i just read this on MMO-Champ

    "Battlegrounds and Arenas
    Picking up the Alliance or Horde flag while in a Rated Battleground now increases damage taken by 50% for characters in a tanking specialization, and increases damage taken by 20% for characters in a non-tanking specialization."

    having a really hard time understanding this change myself.. If anything it should be "IF NOT CARRYING A FLAG in RBG tank speccs take 50% increased damage" to get rid off the "Plant the tank on a base and let him stand there all game long"

    This just means... Bring a feral fc instead of guardian XD Which is pretty much the same thing. And will promote kiting play style, which says screw you to any other tanks.

    Tank specs already take 25% extra damage in rated BGs. So this does two things:
    1. Slightly increases the tank vs non-tank damage difference from 25% to 30% (50%-20%).
    2. Makes either type of flag carrier likely to die quicker, so mobility will be important. That or kill the EFC ASAP.

    But everyone starts with 65% resilience so tanks can still stack resilience gems and enchants as a counter.

    Added 5/15: It's really a 20% increase in damage to both tank and non-tank classes.
    Tanks: 150%/125% = 20% increase
    Non-tanks: 120%/100% = 20% increase

    In addition:
    Defensive Stance now decreases damage taken by 25%, up from 15%.
    Shield Wall's cooldown has been reduced to 3 minutes, down from 5 minutes.
