May 1st 2009 5:17PM I think people are losing perspective on this issue.
WoW is a game. There is no right or wrong, nor is there a system of ethics. Its all pixels and numbers in a database.
Let the people act how they want. Karatechop should be able to keep all gear/achievements/etc. he received while using the item in question because in the end it doesn't really matter. The point of a game is to have fun, if he had fun then the point of the game has been accomplished.
Protecting the solidarity of hard mode achievements is something I really could case less about.
Nov 24th 2008 10:34AM I got my lvl 80 achievement and immediately cleared every heroic in the game with the following comp:
Resto Druid (myself)
I really feel like Blizzard has done a good job of making the encounters require good players, not just certain classes (we will see if this continues with the raids).
There were a few instances where I thought I would really hate to run to try and run with a pug (Occulus comes to mind), but I think the heroics should be fairly accessible to most of the player base.
I didn't run most dungeons on regular, so I can't speak to their enhanced difficulty, but I can say that Heroic Ahn'Kahet is much harder than its normal counter part, but the extra boss is really cool and original. The fact the insanity adds have 12k hp and hit a bit harder makes the last boss very intense.
Jul 23rd 2008 11:25PM I have played a DK to 60 in the Beta and I feel they are incredibly overpowered. I am blood spec'd and am basically invincible. The amount of regen and dmg that I can put out is just unreasonable. I expect a fairly large nerf before or early on during live release. Unfortunately with a couple exceptions the only toons seeming to be running around Outland or Azeroth are DKs, and there are only a couple DKs in Northrend, so I haven't had a chance to PvP against them very much.
Also, Degeneration needs a nerf. I understand Blizzard doesn't balance classes on a 1 on 1 basis, but this ability will single handedly knock druids out of competition in the Arena (esp in 2v2 and 3v3). It is simple so unfair that I don't see how they could ignore it.
The Bloodworms are totally broken. I was in WPL and I killed a skeleton and 5 popped out, I proceeded to destory every mod in Felstone field and finished with full health.
Don't get me wrong death knights are fun, but they are the epitome of EZ mode.
Jul 14th 2007 9:56AM 1. Feral druids will now be able to use consumables and quest items while shapeshifted (BEARS ARE VERY DEXTEROUS)
2. Curse of Doom will now affect player characters
3. All dungeons will have heroic options
4. Prot Pallies will have the option to block request that they respec holy
5. Any shadow priest that repeatedly pulls aggro because of mind flaw and tells the tank to "L2P" will suffer an instant 72 hour account suspension
Jul 12th 2007 10:52AM I think Blizzard should start introducing new figures of lore now that we can kill in an expansion or two. This prevents them from have to do a "ACTUALLY Kiso'Bojojo was behind the legion the whole time!!!" sort of thing.
Or they could introduce an entire new world to explore via the portals in Outland. While this would require a great deal of work, I imagine if done properly it could integrate with the current WoW story.
Eventually we do need a Warcraft IV and a WoW II though :)
