Feb 27th 2009 7:49PM Thanks Mike for giving me highlight yet again ^^
This time around it seems pretty clear that they're actually working on it now, can't wait to see how it'll turn out.
Nov 19th 2008 3:21PM Okay, that's something new for Ferals we haven't really asked all too much for. There was requests for Bear AoE so we can maintain threat, not AoE for Catform... although I think it's nice to give us that since many other classes will shine due to the new kind of (boring) tanking where you pull 5-6 mobs and just AoE away, where single targeting DPS won't count for anything in comparison.
But I'm more inclined to say "lolwut, so you're saying that this is what we need?"
Oct 19th 2008 7:44AM It's more that a Druid has a grand total of 8 forms total. Cat, Bear, Aquatic, Travel, Flight Form, Swift Flight Form, Moonkin and Tree of Life.
Imagine if you wanted to customize the look on both Bear, Cat and Moonkin? A mage at least can choose between a more unnecessary thing such as making your CC look "more fun", but when it comes to a Druid it's been four years overdue so...
But I agree it could be fun if we had glyphs so a Tauren Druid could use the Nightelf catform model as well, but I think this is much better.
Anyway, Mage polymorph glyph =/= Druid forms glyph
Oct 14th 2008 11:19AM (* let the expansion allow us to change look on our characters by allowing us an option to do so once per every character we have on the account (imagine a new "Edit" button underneath the name) )
Oct 14th 2008 11:14AM I like this, but having to pay for it from my own wallet when we already pay the monthly fee and we already have lots of paid services already... no.
Let the allow us to change look on our characters by allowing us an option to do so once per every character we have on the account (imagine a new "Edit" button underneath the name), then incorporate it into the game with some kind of feasible restraint like in-game money at a hefty cooldown (think half a year or 1/4th of a year before being able to do it again). That should make most people happy.
You're just greedy.
Oct 8th 2008 11:58AM WTB Ghostcrawler, she's done some very nice work with this expansion when it comes to communicating with the community :)
Oct 5th 2008 3:30PM I think personally Arenas have ruined the game.
Certain speccs are at a great disadvantage, setups is everything, gear will rape you and resilience can make a person invurnable.
It's just that good to play Arenas, and since they introduce new seasons all the time, even those who play BGs will have to do Arena even though they don't find it fun at all, simply because Arena gear is designed to be the best. You can't avoid playing Arenas if you want to play on an even field in BGs and (if they design things poorly) PvE, and this is constantly ongoing since the seasons does not end.
For those who doesn't like it, you can't avoid it!
You can get an item from PvE easily and keep it, sure there will be more awesome items that is awesome for PvP as the high-end PvE-content patches in, but it's unreasonable to say that those who do Arenas HAVE to get those items since it's much harder to acquire something from say Illidan.
I'm sure those who do Arenas are also bothered that with every new season they have to get all the new gear or they'll fall behind.
I hope that Kalgan is going to introduce "skill-play" into BGs, I really do. That or make every class and playing style stand on equal grounds, which has not been the case for the history of the game nor do I think they'll manage to fix for WotLK.
Oct 5th 2008 8:47AM I've been tanking for the whole of TBC, so I'm pretty interested in doing Catform DPS as my PvE specc and then have a PvP specc that I probably will have as Feral or if things are looking bad I'll just make it Balance.
Also not wanting to tank is feeling like a no-brainer in my case, nothing new to offer for a Feral Tank who already have it easy with button presses as it is? No thanks.
I'll do it out of necessity once in a while with my friends, but I won't be spending nearly as much effort on it as I did before.
Oct 4th 2008 2:49PM Can't wait for this change, I hope it's just as easy as I want it to be that you can switch on the fly, anytime.
Playing a Feral Druid I'm pretty spoiled that I should be able to DPS and tank with one optimal specc, but since the bloat is there and some interesting stuff is in I'd have to respecc fairly often.
Although I agree some kind of lvl 80 questline or moneysink is in order, and of course some kind of cooldown and disabling it in PvP.
Oct 4th 2008 9:21AM Well of course Feral Charge is still there, but there's no real need to use it if you have Growl up.
It's a nice change but not really something I'd want for my Druid who has to press only Swipe, Mangle, Faerie Fire and Maul constantly anyway to get through all content as a tank. It's just looking so... uninteresting, gameplay-wise, to do this for a Feral tank especially since we haven't recieved anything new into our rotations besides Berserk and Survival Instincts which both are on not-to-use-so-frequently cooldowns.
It's fairly stupid too, your argument that "I still have Feral Charge"; it IS better to use Growl. Simple as that.
The mob runs towards you, you don't have to run with all the mobs you have around you and risk getting hit from behind where you can't dodge.
It's oversimplifying the game for tanks, and I just don't think I like it all that much. It may of course be different for Warriors, but they have a much more fun experience tanking anyway with reactive defensive abilities and the new WotLK stuff they've gotten.
