    Default Pushback in Mage soultree and Qaulity of life

    With how hard it is to get many hybrid specs going for mages, especially concerning PVP specs. Would it be possible to instead having single target pushback reduction in the pyro tree and aoe pushback reduction in stormcaller's tree. Could we just make them both pushback reduction period so we can go different ways with tri-hybrid specs please?

    You need pushback reduction for pretty much every PvE raid encounter these days. When you consider that there are a lot of situations where people are required to both AOE and Single-target DPS, it's pretty ridiculous that we can only avoid pushback on one type of spell or the other.

    Let's face it: the attempt with SL to separate AOE and single-target trees fell flat on its face. This pigeon-holding needs removed.

    Kinda curious what spec you're making where this becomes an issue.

    wild growth and nature's fury suffer from pushback with 3/3 in fiery concentration, which is probably the best example

    As well as nature's splender, which is my favorite chloro spell. On matriarch sometimes it only gets to ticks 3 to 4 times for a full channel due to constant raid damage.

    well, since he is having trouble removing the pigeons one can only assume he picked them up while he had superglue on his hands

    now the question is what was trunks doing with a pigeon and superglue? /boggle

    Whatever it is, i'm sure it breaks mages and makes them even more OP in some way, so i say nerf it before it becomas a problem!!!!!! !!!!!!!! 1111!!!1!!1

    the pigeons were innocent bystanders whose coos i had to silence before they tipped off the mages below that i was about to rain on their parade

    i would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids

    I cant see a way where this would be game breaking or make Mage OP in anyway. Would def be a quality of life fix imo.

    I don't think Fiery Concentration works on channels does it?

    It does, but only on ST-channels. Natural Splendor is AoE.


    I think they should get rid of pushback suffering completely. It's such an outdated and useless mechanic.
    Like people said, it's mandatory to have pushback reducing talent these days for raiding. And if something becomes mandatory, than it has defeated it's purpose.

    Don't think so, usually channels have their pushback removed by default instead. I thought the pushback on Natural Splendor was removed a while back, maybe it snuck back in. Downpour from Warden for example still gets pushback with the Sentinel talent that prevents pushback on heals.
