Breakfast Topic: What's the most useless "of the..."?
11-18-2009 @ 11:10AM
Of the whale. It's got to be an inside joke since the days of the original Diablo, and the infamous "Godly Plate of the Whale".

I vote whale. My guild always jokes that one should just be called "of the DE"
Maybe im just being stupid only playing a priest and DK but arent whale and wolf useless?

Pretty much all the ones with +Spirit are to be avoided.

Boar (STR + SPI) & Wolf (AGI + SPI)Whale is SPI & STA which can both be utilized by a leveling priest. No class/spec combo can use both STR or AGI along with SPI.

i alwyas thought warriors liked spirit + str so they could regen health faster while leveling. but nowadays mobs just die in 2 swings with boa gear.

SPI only affects health regen outside of combat. If you're stacking SPI for that, you're doing it wrong. Vendor food is cheap, and a lot quicker than waiting for your health to regen through the little bit of spirit you get from some greens.

You is forgeten da trolls, mon.

@TxAg obviously you never leveled a feral druid. When I was leveling my druid during bc I would always make sure that I got a good bit of spirit on my gear. I would mean that after fights I could pop out of cat heal my self and move on to the next mob. I think I vendered more water leveling then I ever drank. I mean this was also pre-leveling nerf and pre-leveling gear. but I think it might still hold true.

Curtis, you obviously don't play a Priest. Priests have Spirit converted into spellpower and killing anything when you have points in Spirit Tap doubles your regen for a short period, in or out of combat. Lots of health, never running out of mana and the ability to heal yourself means never having to sit down, which means leveling faster

@Hagen. Curtis was referring to the poster above him who though warriors liked spirit to regen health.

"You mama's so fat the only armor she can use in World of Warcraft is "Of The Whale".

@Blackhorn, correct.The point is, there's really no class that needs SPI and AGI/STR at the same time.

the most useless [ ____ of the...] item is falcon, hunters and shamns where the only ones that really need agi and intel, but hunters arent going to need that anymore, and 'they' said that shamans' enh spec isnt going to need it either,s so, what good is it?and ya, most of the stuff with spirit isnt that good for anyone, but priests.of the gorillia gear somes worthless to see in anything but low level mail items, by the time a pally is going to wear plate, they should have gear for one spec or the other, and no other class needs strg and int.
