WoW Shadowlands: Drumming weakened - 30 became 15 percent speed

The right composition of a group or a raid has always been an important matter in WoW - not only since Battle for Azeroth brought back some class buffs. With the upcoming expansion Shadowlands, this should become even more important. Because until now, you could replace most buffs with scrolls or drums. However, these have always been somewhat weaker than the actual class buff. With Shadowlands, the drums are now massively weakened. (via WoWHead)

In WoW (buy now 14,99 € ) Shadowlands, there will be exactly three classes that provide the full speed buff of 30 percent. These would be:

  • The Shaman with Heroism / Battle Frenzy
  • The hunter with Ancient Hysteria
  • The Mage with Time Bending

All other resources are weakened. While in the April build some drums were not affected by this change, now all existing drums have been subjected to this change. This affects subsequent tempo increases....

  • The drums of the tempo (The Burning Crusade)
  • Drums of the Mountain (Legion)
  • Drums of the Maelstrom (Battle for Azeroth)
  • Drums of Deadly Fierceness (Shadowlands)

So the drums are toned down tremendously, making the "real" ability of the classes all the more important. However, in the current beta, the Leather Artisan's Mallet of Thundering Hides still increases your speed by 25 percent. Following the trend of the past builds, it can be assumed that this will also be adjusted by the time the upcoming WoW expansion is released.
