Dec 8th 2009 1:53PM This roll setup becomes a nightmare when you consider a situation like a cloth piece drops that a boomkin really needs but can no longer roll need on because it's not their default armor class. They have to roll greed, but someone else already rolled to blow it up and won it instead. Now they can't even trade the equip to the person who actually needed it.
Aug 23rd 2009 9:33AM that can't be right, more people would be complaining since that's one of the main reasons people shy away from arena, plus their comment about not losing rating just because you get stuck in a bad pug

Aug 22nd 2009 4:12PM Bg rating just being based on wins is disappointing. Some people will still get high rated by sucking or afking and be placed in games with me. I thought the new xp system would help them identify personal contribution.
Aug 22nd 2009 3:36PM If they wanted to simplify stats wouldn't it have been better to use a simple stat like mp5 instead of a vague one like spirit? They could slash it's casting regen to 1/4 or something so dps can't go nuts but it would still be easy to understand exactly how it affects you. People might complain about mp5 but I don't think that means we want spirit instead. Also, how will this not make the resource issue between mana and non mana dps users far more serious? How will mana dps regen between combat without chain drinking?
Apr 15th 2009 1:07AM Ironic that the users with ~100+ addons that relied on WM so much are the same kind of users who would use ad blocking addons on their browsers. I know I do. I checked some Curse pages in IE just to see what ads are actually there, it was pretty amusing because I didn't know they existed.
So now we get to "waste" Curse's bandwidth even more by having to browse hundreds of pages on their slow site to update everything, without seeing their precious ads. I don't think anyone wins.
PS: Use Firefox with AdBlock Plus and choose one of its blocklists to keep updated, if you haven't already.
Feb 1st 2009 12:12AM Huh? Looks like my reply in agreement to this has been deleted, along with a previous post that was similar to yours... I guess my comment that the Wowinsider writers should "grow a pair" wasn't appreciated.
Nov 15th 2008 2:38PM I can afford one but I don't really want one. At 77 when I can fly I won't want to be running around on a slowass ground mount, except in Dalaran, where there's vendors for everyone anyway. You can't mount in most instances. Only place I'd realistically use it would be in a BG, and there it's kind of like a giant "I'm filthy rich, kill me now" sign.
Nov 10th 2008 6:47PM I found this article very misleading. You made it sound like honor requirements have skyrocketed across the board, but you only gave examples of slots that don't need arena points in addition to purchase.
Looking at the latest figures, most slot equips (chest, shoulders, weapons etc) actually need LESS honor than they do now at 70. The new combined honor/AP requirement makes me think Bliz are actually toning down the honor grind, especially when you factor in the increased honor we'll get, so this article confuses me.
Savage Gladiator's Gavel 20k honor 575 ap, compared to 25.2k honor for the current s2.
Savage Gladiator's Barrier 12k honor 350 ap, compared to 15k honor for the current s2.
Nov 4th 2008 5:22AM If you can't find them in the actual WoW folder and use Vista, all the background downloader patch files are likely placed here:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Blizzard Entertainment\World of Warcraft
At least, I found mine there.
