Dec 1st 2011 9:59AM Yeah I ragequit and haven't done a guild raid since. During ICC i was at the Guild Leader's ear EVERY time we had a raid about wanting to tank and generally we would have our regular tanks show up and one night nobody in the raid was in our regular tanking rotation but one guy so I asked and he ended up having a new guy in the guild do it instead and I didn't particularly care for the new guy at all so I just logged shut my machine down and posted on the forums that if guild leadership was going to be so bad that I wouldn't be raiding again. and I have still not done a raid in Cata as a result. Well that and I got this cool thing called a Girl that wanted to live with me and usually demands more on my time than I can justify sitting down for 4 hours to raid...
Nov 15th 2011 6:03PM Yeah i really hope that these new 5 mans aren't as difficult as the zandalari ones. I really don't like them..
Nov 15th 2011 5:51PM It would be fine if they just made the GCD go away and put longer internal cooldowns on individual abilities. But as a DK I need to spend my runes fast as possible so they can start regenerating faster and not all classes might have the same benefit from spending their resources faster. DKs are about the only class I am aware of that gets resources back faster if they spend them faster... But I guess not ever having played an MMO that didn't have a GCD im not sure what to say about it..
Nov 15th 2011 5:49PM I guess for me the issue of the GCD is less important than which beta I should play tonight. I got into both D3 and Star Wars.. gonna be a tough call...
Nov 15th 2011 5:44PM Dang.. you probably hate me too. I got my beta invite last night and while it wasn't totally done installing yet at the time I decided to go to bed it certainly will be tonight. But I will definitely pay attention to the mechanic now due to Rossi's article and see if I agree. I think I might...
Nov 9th 2011 11:08AM Wow it sounds like they are almost admitting that they kinda screwed the pooch with DKs. Now if we could only convince them to give us back the rune system from 3.x we would be winning big time..
Nov 2nd 2011 1:07PM The set that I am going to set about re collecting for my Warlock is the Black Mageweave set. She has all the patterns in her Tailoring book I just need to go back and do some farming for the mats to make it again.
Oct 18th 2011 1:19PM Yep ive been saying and even got banned from the forums that the new system they put in for runes in and effectively this turned me off so bad that I quit the game id love them to fix DKs..
Aug 23rd 2011 6:12PM Well this article sums up pretty much exactly why I am not paying for WoW anymore. 4.0 ruined DKs for me and I didn't want to put that kind of work into a toon again to chance it getting gutted. I think wow has gone to the dogs. Likeminded people should come to Telara and hang out with me..
Jul 5th 2011 10:32AM I realize i am a little late in posting this but if yo play a pally tank you are probably the least qualified to speak on this issue. I play all the tanks through at least 5 man content due to time restraints and ill tell you that your argument about some sort of ability is totally off point.
The biggest issue aside from avoidance and mastery directly contradicting one another is that the rune system is just busted and frankly just bad design. In general unless a bear or warrior screws up and spamms maul/heroic strike too much once combat has begun they have a virtually unlimited resource pool. Paladins get mana back at a pretty good rate during combat too. So none of the other tanks have to manage cooldowns on their abilities as well as cooldowns on their resource pool. While the rune system was a cool idea to begin with the changes in 4.0 made it into a frustrating hindrance that frankly well..yeah it sucks. I stopped playing my DK much after 4.0 dropped because the new system is so bad. The tree redesigns also made the DK class unappealing to me.
