    Default Auto attack and AFK!

    I am curious to see where itemization is going after this expac. There are many items now that increase casters CB, WDB and flurry.. then factor in items that increase the groups CB, WDB etc. One item that increases the groups WDB up to 102 increase..

    I have seen my CB over 1400 in groups that have these items and the high end of my pri/secondary 4sec delay weapons over 110k criting for over 2 mil a swing.

    Gear that can get you to 1k DPS mod, loads of haste and enough flurry to reach 100% in raids so that you can literally just auto attack the mob and do anywhere from 4-7.7 mil in just auto attack damage.

    On top of that you can stack jewelry side with high damage proc items and you don't even need to bother with combat arts.

    As a dps I genuinely like these kinds of things cause dps is fun but it's to the point where you don't even have to try anymore. The current itemization is taking the fun out of playing certain classes.

    Where do they go from here with itemization? How do you top uplifting effects to caster and group that increase a groups WDB by 102? Will they just keep increasing to Uplifting II, III and IV?

    I mean, auto attack has been the highest damage for most melee including priests and tanks since like... Ever? Unless you're saying the mobs are going to be easier and easier I don't see how it would ever be acceptable to not press buttons

    The post title is an exaggeration for emphasis. The real question and concern is how the balance is tipping ever further into the favor of auto attack and how itemization is going to be handled in the expansion.

    If you have to use exaggeration to make a point, it's probably a shitty point.

    They will probably have to implement another crit mit type stat to force people out of that gear or simply require absurd amounts of resists.

    Adding a gear check to force us out of what is considered to be some of the best gear at the moment is a poor option. Not that I expect them to have some amazing option that will keep everyone happy though.

    My post title is not a bad point, it's simply an attention grabber. And apparently... it worked.

    Your title is just an attention grabber but in the OP you posted the same shit.

    Yes the devs have backed themselves into a corner with itemization, that much is obvious. AFK auto attacking has nothing to with any of that though unless you happen to like being beaten by healers and utility.

    It's obvious you haven't seen the actual dps output from a toon geared and reforged to support max auto attack damage. 4 to over 7 mil Dps from auto attacks alone (this is not including procs or abilities) is quite a bit better than any healer can do consistently.

    On the plus side I had no expectation of any useful or insightful replies here and I can safely say my expectations were met!
