Saw the priest section kicking around the offical priest forums about a week ago.
Feb 26th 2007 11:53PM color me skeptical. Blizz CS has been deleting threads like crazy all afternoon, Including the ones that #7 is talking about. There were long posts (now probably deleted) about how the blues have little/zero credibility now in the priest forums due to the fact that level headed posts over the past two years got nothing. Untill I see some real changes IN THE GAME, I'm levelling my pally.
Feb 26th 2007 5:49PM Priests as a community have generally been the best behaved group out there. After two years of "resonable" discourse and getting hit repeatedly with the nerf stick, it finally went too far. What you are seeing here is 2 years of repressed rage. You know what, it's working too, there have been more preist forum blue posts in the past two days than there have been in the past two months.
Personally, I didn't take place in the riots, but I was geeting tired of being passed over for raid spots, so I just turned my priest into an alchemy mule 2 weeks ago and am leveling a pally.
Feb 25th 2007 4:28PM Well, the offical priest forums have gone nuclear. I'm of a similar mind myself, I've been running a priest as my only character for the better part of two years, and re-rolled a paladin last week. Having to use consumables for every boss fight and seeing my cash account continually drop due to the fact that speccing healing made me useless for grinding kinda broke my spirit for the class. And don't forget that Druids and Paladins are better for raid healing these days anyway. Half of our 2nd tier priests are leveling pally alts in my guild as we speak.
Unless Blizzard makes some severe positive changes to the class, I'm probably not coming back. I have a new shadow farming/alchemy alt now.... =(
Jan 10th 2007 1:41PM Razorgore is currently bugged, orcs still keep spawning in phase 2, helpful for bringing him down, but it made loot distribution VERY interesting.
Oct 30th 2006 4:48PM Twenty-odd posts in and I can't beleive anyone has pointed out this particular resource: The offical server board.
If you are looking for a guild cold (like a high level server transfer) it really is the best place to start. Most server forums on the offical site have two threads stickied, a guild progression thread and a guild list thread. If you are raiding end-game, or are thinking about it, the guild will show you the progress of the various guilds and a rough guide to how "hardcore" they are. Once you have found a list of guilds you might be interested in, use the guild list thread to check out their websites in more detail.
Oct 24th 2006 12:11PM Am I personally dissapointed, a bit. But in the long term it was the right decision. Blizz has had a long history of pushing back games or even cancelling them (Warcraft adventures, Ghost) if it didn't meet their standards. This has given them "street cred" that other game companies would die for, If blizzard came out with a new game, would most of us on this thread buy it? Of course we would, Blizzard dosen't publish crap, even when we really, really want it now.
so GG Blizz, I imagine the pressure Vivendi was applying for a thanksgiving ship was a sight to behold.
Jun 2nd 2006 5:12AM I love the stats as they are, but Damn it's ugly. I looks like a sweet staff for a lvl 40-55, but not an epic. Though the hammer dosen't look much better, but at least is has a good reason to look the way it does due to the rag fight. Really, it's going to be the tier 3 thing to go for, and with the priest set, does it really looks like it matches?
On side notes, it may not be So bad for a priest (like myself), I've been turining off my "Target (halo) of trancendence" since I live on a PvP server, and nothing says easy target like priest gear (Benidiction (Bene) first, then halo). Have other priests on pvp servers noticed this? (easy evil trick for someone with a Bene, turn it to an Anathema. Joe ganker won't want to dance with a shadow priest, and you can't even tell him anyway).
Second, I've noticed that the higher level, the shinier (more effects) the item has. This has a well thought out reason, the more powerful an item is, the cooler it should look. Classical power=cool=health genetic sub-logical thinking [1,2]. what happens when we get to tier 4-5, will those people be clothed in light like common perceptiond of angels or dieties? (you can already see the angel wings with the tier 3 priest set).
