Aug 19th 2010 8:16AM The first is probably always the sweetest. I was such a noob when I hit 80 the first time on my paladin. Mismatched gear (it was all plate-but some dps-heals-tanking) foolish philosophies (thinking I could tank heroics with resilience - which was theoretically possible just not optimal or appreciated). I don't have any fond memories of the dinging just relief it was over. I was glad to be able to wear some of the cool 80 purples I had got from WG (at the time it was 200lvl and 213 were just coming out). Back then you had to wait til 70 to fly and it was a tad more expensive so I think in that sense dinging 70 was probably more monumental for me. I also went around and got all the lvl 70 faction gear from the outland factions and used all of it til lvl 80 (crazy I know). Now of course I know exactly what gear to pick while leveling and set my goal for lvl 78 when I can make crafted gear for the toons spec. I am seriously thinking about leveling a second pally (ret/prot first one is prot/holy) and having more fun the second time around and see how it is when you actually know a little more :)
Aug 18th 2010 9:47PM @Red I know it's not set in stone but one of the new enchants will be an Agility and slight movement increase for your boots. Should help with mobility a little.
Aug 18th 2010 9:38PM And maybe with glyphs and set bonuses we can get it down to a silly 8-10 seconds /grin
Aug 18th 2010 9:36PM Yeah Chris I am 100% with you there. I am not God's gift to tanking so I kind of liked them having Ardent Defender on auto pilot. On the other hand if it's not on the GCD if could be used to macro in to something else :) Interesting times ahead for sure.
Aug 18th 2010 9:32PM Wouldn't you want to take Crusader 3/3 to boost your Hammer of the Righteous and Crusader strike? Also, how does Judgements of the Pure work for Prot and Ret? It seems to me for 3 points 9% melee haste would be a good thing.
Aug 18th 2010 8:53PM Is your friend like Kid Rock smoking funny things in northern Michigan?
Aug 18th 2010 8:51PM Can we get a free CataCake with every purchase?
Aug 18th 2010 8:48PM Don't they usually do releases on patch day? (means a tuesday for US-Residents). Call of Duty is coming out on November 9th. Nov. 23rd is the 4th Tuesday after Blizzcon and seems to line up nicely for the holiday shopping season...just sayin'. 2 days before Thanksgiving might not be reasonable (or fair for the tech dept.) so I could also see it coming out a week before or after. Either way I think we can all say it's coming out in the next 60-90 days :)
Aug 18th 2010 8:37PM Won't be Nov. 9th. They have a game set to release that week (Call of Duty:Black Ops). The more I think about it Nov. 23rd makes sense. The 4th Tuesday after Blizzcon. Seems like a safe date. Nothing empirical to go on, just my gut feeling. I am so not really good at predicting these things...
Aug 17th 2010 8:34PM Perhaps inspector Clouseau should be notified...
