Breakfast Topic: What feature does WoW need most? {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 11:25AM 1) Ability to sort the character selection screen - I want to move my main and bank alt to the top

2) Built in 'bank alt' feature - I put my alts in to the same 'guild' to share a bank, would be nice if all chars had this ability to share the bank anyway. (saves on posting, and "I wonder if I have that cloth on my tailor")

3) Fix the paladin holy power to coincide with power auras. I have to use this one mod for this one ability. Can't believe Blizz didn't add a visual effect for three stacks of holy power. As a tank, my name plate is the last thing I'm staring at.

4) Account wide friends / ignore list. If I ignore a player, I want to ignore ALL players that user creates on his/her account. I also want it synchronised across all of my toons.



As for player housing...sure it sounds cute and all, but...why? Maybe it's my lack of imagination, but I don't see what purpose it would serve. Also Blizz wouldn't implement anything that wasn't 110% awesome.

Remember, if they made housing, it'd mean they wouldn't make another 5 man dungeon, mini raid boss....new BG's or BG tuning etc... Blizz work off a priority list, or use a ratio, when it comes to changes as they decide to implement something that provides the most value based on effort required to create.

No rested XP for level 80 characters at Cataclysm launch {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2010 8:57PM ...because some people don't use common sense.

How many posts did Blizz have to state what was and wasn't included in the 4.0.3a patch. Personally it all made sense months ago when they first mentioned it. I saw random comments in general chat a week ago asking "Has the world changed yet?" and "Lol...I'll lvl my Goblin tomorrow"

Most people are not that bright ;)

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Protection in 4.0.1 -- a Cataclysm spec in a Wrath world {WoW}

Nov 5th 2010 11:47PM Hmmm....


You lost me once you said "Charge in, Rend, Thunderclap..."

You must have decent (as in knowledgeable, not high gs) dps with you, as I seem to find I NEED to hit some kind of AoE after a charge asap or else all the mobs are gone.

I even run ahead....don't have time to loot trash just so I can be in the next room, building threat on mobs to stay ahead of the dps.

I understand that wearing dps gear will help threat, but it's not possible, even with amazing T10.5 heroic gear to contain a pack of mobs with "Charge in, Rend..."

Also, not sure if it's an Oceanic server problem, but as you may be aware, us Aussie players sit on 500ms latency the whole time, it'll never drop below it. I find abilities like Shockwave are useless as you have to jump through the pack...spin around...just to get the shockwave off, in moving around, you'll lose the pack of mobs. We can't hit TC > Shockwave, as it'll miss most NPC's in front of you (because they're technically not in front of you, even though on your client they appear to be)

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Protection in 4.0.1 -- a Cataclysm spec in a Wrath world {WoW}

Nov 5th 2010 11:37PM I'm loving the new builds and tank mechanics since patch 4.0.1 but I am having a hard time enjoying some random LFD heroic groups.

Is it just me or is there a lot of rude dps out there who are quick to insult tanks these days? In the past I received so many comments about being an awesome tank, now I seem to get a lot of "zzzz....tank them you f***"

You have mages sitting on 11k dps, hunters doing 8k dps, and I'm getting yelled at for having mobs run around all over the shop once they start nuke on the pull.

Forget rend and thunderclap altogether on single targets, if I don't just stick to using just shield slam, revenge and heroic strike...If I even hesitate to use TC, rend or even shield block, I'll lose a boss.

And yes....I'm head to toe in iLvL262 gear on my warrior.

I just find that as much as I like the new mechanics, and love the old school tanking styles, I am getting a bit disheartened running random heroics due to the expectations and abuse from the people that come with it.

The Light and How to Swing It: Paladin Protection glyphs {WoW}

Nov 4th 2010 10:51AM Yeah I'm with you on that one.

I tried with the dummies a CS > CS > CS > SoR rotation and then a Hor > HoR > HoR > SoR rotation and with HoR glyphed for the 10% extra damage, I found very little in difference.

I honestly think you can keep using HoR for single target use, I'm in a habit now of using HoR for multi targets, CS for single...but I don't think there is a great deal of difference between the two at this point.

Also explains why the HoR glyph only effects the main target and not the AoE component, it might be a glyph just to bring HoR to an all-rounder replacement over CS.

Patch 4.0.1 gem changes detailed {WoW}

Oct 12th 2010 6:10PM Yeah I'm one of those rare tanks that don't just stam stack....I actually get set bonuses and gem 'correctly' :P

It's funny, too...sure I have 5k HP less than other tanks, but I get so many people saying "Man you're easy to keep up"

I also loved on my healer as I noticed it with other tanks.....stam stackers have huge HP, always get at least three of four good hits before they die...but you have to constantly heal them.....tanks that gem correctly and have 5k less HP, you can throw a renew on them and afk for a bit.

Just saying, there have been lots of advantages to using mitigation gems, It takes a good tank to know the difference.

As to the point of this topic, people like me will be affected, as we used the right gem in the right spot...we'd possibly need to re-gem to maintain our set bonus

Upcoming changes to glyphs in patch 4.0.1 {WoW}

Oct 12th 2010 7:55AM [Glyph of Hammer of Justice] - Causes the target to break in to /dance once the stun wears off

BOOM...better minor glyph for you right there

Global cooldown rework in Cataclysm {WoW}

Oct 9th 2010 2:09AM "The optimal setting will probably be right around what your ping time is. So, if your ping is 100 for example, you'd probably want to set it at 100 or slightly higher."

After I read that line, I thought to myself....boy it would be nice for Kalgan to try playing WoW from Australia on an Oceanic server.

Guild size cap and the WoW Insider reader guild {WoW}

Oct 9th 2010 1:48AM Wow

There's nothing wrong with the lines said, it is a message about not speaking up for something just because it doesn't involve you; can lead to one day no one speaking up for you.

I think the people who go "yuck Nazi Germany" must be mentally immature to have to make that comparison only and not be able to move on. Grow up. It's funny how people say "But it's NAZI!!!" yet the lines make reference to things NON-NAZI. Hence the point.

It could be used to describe a shoddy government, a bad referee at a game or your local supermarket no longer selling a particular item.

It doesn't matter where the lines were used...It matters what they mean ;)

Grow up haters. If it's too sensitive for you please avoid the usage of the Internet, forums in particular.

Cataclysm beta removes portals from Dalaran and Shattrath {WoW}

Sep 27th 2010 8:31PM @Hiwa

zzzz Don't complain about missing something you don't even need or will ever use. Yeah...removing portals will make Outlands empty O.o

@jair

This isn't going backwards, it's actually putting in the community that WoW had. It wasn't bad in Shattrath, but Northrend just gutted the game. Half of Northrend is dead as everyone is pitched up in Dalaran with no need to go to Gundrak or Grizzly Hills.

I'm sorry, but I think Blizzard are trying to recreate the community populated feel pre-BC had. And to share a little something with you ... it was great :)
