Shifting Perspectives: A 3.3 miscellany {WoW}

Oct 28th 2009 4:58AM oh yeah, i didnt address the quote like i meant to, ghostcrawler could give druids and only druids a win button and no matter what is posted on the forums, they wont recieve the nerf hammer, ever. that is absurd.

Shifting Perspectives: A 3.3 miscellany {WoW}

Oct 28th 2009 4:55AM this is going to seem like trolling but that isnt my intent, i just have to state some frustration with statements like this one:

"As I've written previously, the druid functions as the proverbial canary in the coal mine as a harbinger of class balance concerns"

as a hunter, i have to roll my eyes when i see other classes, especially a hybrid, complain about balance issues when they are clearly ahead of the curve in many instances (i would rather have a tree than any other healer, feral dps can be absolutely insane and though maybe less popular druid tanks are reliable). i have a hard time looking at a class like druid or pally and taking any complaint about anything they say seriously, its the king complaining about the filet mignon being a little rare for their taste to a peasent who is eating semi-raw chicken off the bone. my goal isnt to turn this into a discussion about hunters, but consider the abuse other classes take from patches before making statments like "trees are second banana healers" when in my years of playing i havent ever encountered that. a good druid can top charts in whatever roll they choose, at that point, your ability to complain about anything goes right out the window.

Ghostcrawler and the "hybrid tax" {WoW}

Oct 28th 2009 4:24AM @ Rhabella

"Survivalist hunters, destro locks, and frost mages are all good examples of this. They, like the shadow priest or ret pally should be paying a hybrid tax for the replenishment they bring to a raid. When they choose to take a build that brings along a, according to the devs, mandatory buff, they too should be paying a hybrid tax"

seriously? are you kidding? if you take the 1.25% mana that i provide in surv or the 10% ap i would in marks as a semi-hybrid you are insane. that mechanic has nothing to do with what makes a hybrid a hybrid, except at wotlk launch, you wont find a hunter (bm) tanking anything, and even though you may morph into a kitty, i cant mend pet you. i provide a raid buff like every other class does, hyrbid or not, i cant think of a class that doesnt have some ability that enhances another class' damage or threat generation or healing, that doesnt mean everyone is a hybrid.

Encrypted Text: Why rogues now love hunters and other HaT ironies {WoW}

Breakfast Topic: Is the Zombie event too PvP for PvE? {WoW}

Oct 24th 2008 11:06AM does anyone know how long this event will last? i had the bad luck of shipping my computer to dell the day before it started and expect it back next wednesday, but i hope it is going on that long.

When is it fair for classes to share? {WoW}

Oct 9th 2008 1:44AM i use misdirection at every available opportunity and it just makes it that much easier for tanks to keep threat and for dps classes to unload more of their potential. and the argument that the tank should just keep threat better is weak because it simply isnt realistic, especially on a po-dunk server like nazgrel. tanks need assistance sometimes.
