May 20th 2008 3:23PM sorry no...this reminds me ALOT of SWG's NGE. click click click click click click click click click click click click click click! oh head dead.. wait ANOTHER ONE!! click click click click click click click click click. phew... talk about annoying as hell...this is not a good combat system at all. FPS + MMO doesnt really work, tabula rasa has a better combat system than AOC...

May 17th 2008 6:56PM jim,
i agree except you are missing 2 points in arcane subtlety allowing your spell hit cap to be lowered to 164 with the addition of elemental precision. i dont see why anymore than 2 points should be spent in arcane, it is a WORTHLESS TREE.
and ive done equal if not better damage as a frost mage than as a fire mage. take into account that frost mages dont need to cast a supplemental spell to put their buff on a boss. their frost bolts add the crit to the mob, and a firemage has to waste mana on scorches...if it wasnt for SSC i would STILL be a frost mage, and STILL be on top of the meters. Fire is ok, but only works if you have icy veins and 1-2 extra fire mages in the raid to help with scorch wasting less time to adding a buff and more time for fireballs / dots
May 17th 2008 6:16PM yay! bring on the end of wow!!! when everyone can see all the asme content and instantly become bored...the game will destroy itself! whoo hooo!
May 17th 2008 2:06PM the welfare epics are not something that hurt this game, they are allowing some guilds to make that push into 25 man content right before a new expansion, and the BOJ vendor in the island is just another measure to help push some guilds, cut down on thier farm time on certain instances so that way they can move on. They dont have the world 1st's or anything near it, but they can experiance it. they way BC was handled was perfect, but still the crying continued. Please blizzard take a page from SOE. dont simplify the game, it will cause your player base to get bored and die off slowly. no need to fix the perfect game... Although, if you create a 10 & 25 man dungeon for each raid area, with different wings, different bosses, that would be both impressive and helpful to casuals and hardcore alike. but making the same instance easier for 10 people vs 25 is gonna kill this game, plain and simple...people will see the end of the road and go "hmm, well im done, seen the content. No real need to do the 25's...time to find a new game." this will be the end of WOW. DnT are correct about that. All the gear resets in the world wont destroy the game, but that equal raiding lore idea will.
May 17th 2008 2:00PM its not QQ, its the truth my guild is just now finishing SSC and TK, we worked our asses off to find 25 competent players that can work as a team to down these bosses and that is what deserves to see the lore. the big guilds will tape it, and those who dont want to work hard enough or put enough effort in to be good at their class, or build thier small guild up dont deserve the same things that those who dedicate LARGE ammounts of time to this game do.
I switched from a guild that was doing SSC content to a kara guild, and i helped them recruit some strong members and we are now doing the end game content ourselves, with people we like. so there is no need to join a elist group of pricks to get where you want, but if you dont know how to heal/tank/dps and you spend maybe 2-4 hours a week in this game, dont expect to see illidan, you should be playing a more instant gratification game like a FPS. mmo's are not for those with little to no time to play. they just arent.
May 17th 2008 1:45PM gear reset? they have already said that your shiny purples will last you until late into your 70's...sometime around 77, you may be giving up the epics for a damn good green, or a blue, but thats why we play mmo's to build the character to its best. If we stayed with that same gear, and just new bosses, this game would have died long ago...bring on wotlk, but please make the dungeons into 2 wings, a 10 man with different bosses than the 25!! then i will be way happy...
May 15th 2008 2:29PM so wait he should take his time to fix it, like it was a fortune 500 company...but still have fun and not treat it like one....hmmm puzzling...
May 15th 2008 2:26PM there is nothing wrong with this article i found it to be hilarious. and for those who are crying its not a news article...give me a break, it doesnt need to be, if you want news go to cnn or something, christ. keep em coming adam!!
May 15th 2008 2:23PM GTFO then, we dont need the journalist critics sitting here telling us it was a bad article. Its not a news website...it has tangents of random info and guild drama. i knew from the title and picture involved that it wasnt a serious story. im sorry you were to stupid to figure that one out o.O seriously, just kill yourself for caring so much... i dont think they are getting paid much, for their articles, and maybe you should be thankful this website is here at all...
