Jul 30th 2007 7:11AM When TBC was released I solely rolled a Draenei for the fear ward, whereas the insp presc (mana regen) was just a bonus. I must however say that, pre-raiding, the mana regen is the one I definately use the most. If using it when the cool-down is over, one practically never has to drink for mana regen (not that I have to use it that much cause of spirit tap). More importantly, it can be a small blessing in boss-fights when the group is running out of mana.
Ofcourse I think fear ward is awesome, but very often when using it the warded people get feared anyway because of multiple fears from mobs (or warlocks....).
I think it is still an A, but I keep getting extremely annoyed about the cool-down (30 sec) meaning that I have to spend 2.5 minutes casting it on all members in a 5-man, and 7.5 minutes after that is is out on the first one you cast it on. Recast, etc. etc. This i ofcourse only in zones with multiple mobs using fear, but also in some boss fights when he/she is using multiple fear the recast is very annoying.
Although if combined with trinket, getting 2 fear resists, it is awesome...
Jul 26th 2007 9:24AM I think that Azeroth needs some serious improvement, especially the mid-level content. Also, my opinion is that some of the outland gear is just too easy to get considering the quality of it. I started playing when TBC was released, thus missed out on all pre-TBC stuff like MC (which I attuned for but none wants to run), scholo and strat etc. The only reason anyone runs these high level pre-TBC contents is for the epic mount. I guess it is too late to nerf the overpowered quest rewards/XP in outland, I just hope Bliz wont make the same mistake again when introducing the next expansion.
