Patch 3.3 PTR: Blizzard unveils Tier 10 {WoW}

Oct 8th 2009 11:47AM Sorry Spiraea but your information is a bit out of date methinks.

Blizzard is actually going back the opposite direction from BC, which I think is perhaps a good thing and not a bad thing. They announced at BlizzCon that they are going to (or at least planning to) release every single major raid for Cataclysm at the time of the expansion, and ready on day one. So they won't be doing content patches per raid, all the raids will be ready at launch.

However, for some pacing they also said they plan to reintroduce SOME type of attunement or keying mechanism - not as stringent as BC, but something in the middle that is supposed to pace content AND be fun. That's the goal.

That does leave one open question though. If they are not going to release a bunch of raids via content patches then what new goodness are the content patches going to hold? Or will we see more frequent expansions rather than a year and a half of content patches? Only time will tell I guess.

Arcane Brilliance: You, me and 2.3 {WoW}

Oct 15th 2007 6:19PM I can no longer hold my tongue, because this is just getting absolutely ridiculous.

Does it happen to bother anyone else with the ENDLESS number of posts recently that are poorly researched. It's repetitive, mindless drivel mashed together, incompletely at that, from other sources with no real added benefit. It's all sourced elsewhere and hard facts are CONSTANTLY missing even though the answers are readily available with even minimal effort. Why?

Why is everything reported on as, "We sure don't know this. And boy I wonder what that will do?" How about if you just go and use the factual resources out there or god forbid actually USE the PTR and test client and actually deliver the answers rather than questions that many can answer in mere seconds.

Wowinsider and it's pay-per-post flooding of uninformative articles FT(huge)L. RSS feed unsubscribe. How low is it to post about leaving a blog? I'm sure much worse than posting about leaving the game of which the blog is about.

I will expect to pay my penance soon.

AddOn creation site needs your help {WoW}

Aug 17th 2007 4:56PM The other thing that the trolls seem to be ignorant of is the facts. Shocking, I know. The facts are that the only content that was lost was wiki content. The SVN database, the trac database, and all of the hard work people put into the actual addons was fully protected.

There was however an issue with the wiki content, and the wiki content alone. So yeah, some documentation was lost, and they have found a roundabout way to retrieve it and are asking for some help from the community that they give their time and effort to. OH, the shame! How dare they!

So.. I suggest you go take your big troll hooves and go pound sand.

What about respec costs? {WoW}

That did NOT just happen... egads.

What about respec costs? {WoW}

Aug 16th 2007 6:49PM I think things are relatively fine as they stand right now, however in my perfect world I would implement something slightly different. In my perfect world there would be both an importance on picking the right talents as well as some flexibility.


I believe it would be of great benefit if every single character had room for two different specs. Treat it like a hunter pet stable where you could have one active spec and a second spec stored with a trainer or some other mediator in each city. Switching between these two specs would be as easy as traveling to a city with a trainer and making the switch.

This would let all classes have a solo and raid spec, or a raid and a pvp spec, or whatever combination fits their play style. Gives everyone two play styles and would greatly ease the burden on holy priests, prot tanks, resto shaman, etc. who would like to have a better time at solo pve while also being able to be effective in a group or in pvp.

So, where does the careful choice in talents hail from? Since you now have 2 specs to choose from, make it expensive to actually change them. Start them out cheap, as is done now, and then scale them up exponentially to be hundreds, or perhaps even up to one thousand (or more) gold to actually change it. So, you have a lot of flexibility within two specs, but it's not cheap if you mess up or decide to change your play style.

That's my idea for my perfect world. Especially considering I mainly play prot tanks and holy priests... so I'm not biased or anything or bitter about having a group spec when trying to solo or pvp. Not at all.

Elizabeth's final BlizzCon impressions {WoW}

Aug 9th 2007 11:49PM Since one of the main concerns seemed to be the somewhat anti-social environment of Blizzcon, let me fill you in or remind you of an amusing little detail...

For those of you who happened to be at the first Blizzcon a couple of years ago, did anyone remember the whole corner section of large round tables with realm names on them which were supposed to be for realm meet-ups? Anyone? You see, I think it was set up this way for a reason. Those tables were an almost complete waste of space last time and I think they learned from that.

To me it sounded like the TGC with it's high top tables for people to stand around and play, I think that is what they went for this year. So, I think they did try to leave room for people to socialize at the first Blizzcon and very few took advantage of it. So I think it is more of the fault of the user community, not Blizzard. If that had been a big hit the first time around I bet it would have made a return.

Getting complaints in early {WoW}

While Kaplan himself did say that there were no plans to go back and retrofit or add new 20-60 content, he ALSO said that they were not happy with the mid-game level progression and that they would in fact address that in the "near future". Leveling 1-60, will in fact get some kind of bump.

So while there are no plans to add more content at those levels there are in fact looking into making level progression faster in the earlier parts of the game pre-BC. So don't fret, they are in fact listening and trying to address it. They want to focus on new content but that doesn't mean they want people stuck there in it for long.
