Mar 5th 2008 10:44AM haha excellent topic! i enjoyed reading all of your comments, i especially like the one on the first page about the Kobold and their racial HA
i agree with goblins being a good bet for going horde (in contrast to gnomes) not sure if i'd ever roll one tho, but the Ethereal consortium guys would be awesome, they look really cool indeed and it would be interesting to see them in different gear. only problem is they would all look the same besides their color, not like that really matters tho
Feb 7th 2008 1:47PM sounds cool, i've been using simple combat log for a while
Feb 7th 2008 11:31AM GG guys for showing how jealous you are thru immaturity.
who's the 12 year old now?
Feb 6th 2008 10:06AM yeah i'd have to agree with you guys, i actually have points in vindication and eye for an eye, it was a tough decision, i put 2 into PoJ instead of 3/3 but really i think everyone's arguments just goes to show you how versatile this build can be. i went 5/5 imp SoR and 2/3 Lights Grace. i found that light's grace at 2/3 procs often enough that i could use the last point elsewhere, but really it's goes back to the versatility, depending what aspect of the game ur applying this build to allows you to throw points around here and there. personally this is my "all purpose" build. i pretty pvp most of the time and enjoying healing BG's, the points in Ret just allow me to fight off people if i need to, and for me spamming HL is the last thing i want to do in a heated battle.
all great arguments and mostly great comments, if anything the part of the bloggers build i'd disagree with most (as did everyone else) is 5/5 vengeance.
Feb 6th 2008 9:43AM dunno what they factor in when they make these things but i think lore-wise a bow would be suitable. but if they don't want any races directly benefitting from it then i guess a crossbow will have to do
Feb 5th 2008 4:07PM i use world defense on my 70s, other than that it gets really annoying if i'm just leveling up. it's fine except for when they are mass killing npc's. and usually on my rogue i'm looking for a fight anyway.
the original reason i put it on tho was to know when halaa battles were going down, they don't happen too often on my server but now i always know.
oh yeah and it's also good to know when the daily xroads assault is underway
Jan 24th 2008 11:17AM hmm i wouldn't go that far because as little as that user base maybe, the fact they still exist shouldn't be left unnoticed.
ah this never ending debate continues to resurface.
if less than 10% of raiding guilds actually see BT then what does that tell you? why put all that effort into content 9.5 million people will never see?
personally i just pvp, but i don't think they should get rid of it entirely because those people who enjoy raiding should get to have as much fun as the rest of us. but from a development standpoint i don't think it's lucrative enough for them to pump out the raid content for people who will never access it
Jan 23rd 2008 11:34AM all of my toons have FA maxed and use them
the only times i don't use them on my holy paladin is when i'm questing in area's where mobs don't often drop them, it's just more effecient to use them instead of healing myself. especially in pvp situations when u may not have time to get away and heal yourself. often in bg's i'll be healing a big fight and when i get targeted instead of healing myself i'll bubble and bandage which saves me mana for healing everyone else.
Jan 22nd 2008 11:37AM well before wow i'd only played PSO on the dreamcast, city of heroes and FFXI briefly. city of heroes i didn't like the generic dungeon aspect of the game, it got pretty old pretty quick and personally i didn't think the game rewarded you enough for leveling up and such. in contrast what i did like about WoW was how the quests were all outside with group based instances that were completely optional and progressing thru the game weren't dependant on them (a lot of missions in CoH require groups!).
i was kinda just pushing myself along with my undead rogue then around lvl 28 about november of 2006 my friend introduced me to battlegrounds. at that point, being the noob i was, i didn't even know that these things existed in the game let alone the extent of pvp. but i simply fell in love! my first AB weekend, i think i woke up on a saturday morning around 8am and didn't stop playing until around 5pm (to take a break! lol). needless to say now i'm all about pvp, i just love the randomness of pug battlegrounds and not knowing how the next match will follow thru.
pvp sucked me in!
Jan 21st 2008 3:49PM very very true, i enjoyed this article quite a lot as i directly relate!
i started the game rolling a human warlock on a friends server back when it first came out. it's interesting how you grinded your way all the way to the 20s, but i assume that's the nature of past games you've played before. for me it was just learning how to play game. from the outset the game kinda teaches u the extreme basics then assumes u will learn everything else from other players for the most part. my friend sent me bags and gold and pretty much thru me into the fire. after a while i kinda got frustrated and gave up the game for about a year and half. one of my coworkers at the time got me to pick it back up and decided to roll another class, which is now my 70 rogue.
case and point, now that i actually have experience in the game and know what i'm doing i realize i can't play caster classes. it just doesn't work. i've tried rolling another lock and it was no dice. i have a 70 rogue, 66 paladin, 30ish warrior and 30ish hunter now.
and as other commentors have noted, after playing with my rogue up to 70, i tried something different with my paladin. i enjoy being about to heal myself and take hits, it's a nice departure.
