Bye Ranger, Hello Mechanist!

Honestly, had really high hopes for this spec, but so far it's so incredibly boring to play untamed. Feels like core warrior lol. 

 

Mechanists got what we've been asking for, competent pets, and yes the qol of being able to use pet abilities when we want is nice, but at the end of the day mechanist reigns supreme in these elite specialisations. 

 

Played it for a bit here's me complaining about it:

  • - First of all...no pets? Not even the phoenix to try out? Kind of upsetting.
  • - Hammer feels so incredibly clunky and just slow to use that it's really not fun.
  • - The lack of changes to any other weapon while in untamed primal whatever stance also makes it incredibly boring if you're not using hammer.
  • - Gameplay in general feels so slow but I'm pretty sure that's just from playing Soulbeast for 800 hours.

 

Overall, this spec seems like it might be nice in PvP scenarios because of the tankiness. But I know when end of dragons drops, im dusting off my engineer and playing through EoD on that. It's a shame but yeah.

I play my ranger main 99% of the time I put into this game. I tried the Mechanist in PVE just now and holy kitten this thing rips through PVE content like a warm knife through butter. I almost don't have to even think about what I'm doing, I threw together a random build and tried it out - everything just melts with zero effort.

 

Compared to our ranger elite profession, where you have to press a ton of buttons and switch between modes and micro manage pet swaps, pet skills, unleashed and so on so forth... in shorth triple the effort for less than half the benefit. OMG if this stays the way it is now!

 

For pvp though, I'm not sure at all about the Mechanist, it may very well be too slow there?

Ever since the soulbeast nerf and a few druid changes I have not been happy to play my ranger which was my main. Im going mech too, also Untamed is worse than cata! worse than willender! and i was completely disgusted with cata so im really ticked off over this. You can not frontline with this, its weak clumsy the hammer does jack all the pet is weaker than weak.

Pretty much in the same boat as you. I've been on the fence between engineer and ranger for a long time, but these specs solidified my choice just by seeing how the mechanist is a better ranger than the ranger is when it comes to a pet spec.

 

I summed this feeling up perfectly in a meme I made in like 5 minutes.

Teapot did a video on this.. where he Suspects that by launch its gonna be a RP Specc due to the nature of the specc... if its the case might not be such a choice after all :P.. ur kinda hoping that Mech becomes the Engi meta to play Engineer as a "replacement" to Ranger.
