Nov 15th 2008 4:46PM The phrase "all available PvE content" is a little misleading, as it discounts quests from being PvE content. It would be more accurate to say they've beaten all of the raid content in the expansion. Though, I guess that doesn't have quite the same dramatic punch Zach was looking for.

Feb 25th 2008 3:57PM Blizzard has said time and time again that they want to keep the game consistent as much as possible, like abilities doing the same thing in PvP as in PvE. That aside, how would you make the change just for PvP? Only in Arenas and BG's? So now the inconsistency is not just PvE vs. PvP, it's PvP in Arenas and Battlegrounds vs. PvP outside of Arenas and Battlegrounds and PvE.
The change hasn't even gone live yet. How about instead of freaking out over what hasn't affected you yet, you wait to see what hits the live realms and adapt to deal with it? As far as the PvE impacts are concerned, how hard is it to have one of your healers throw a hot or Flash Heal on a warlock in between their other heals?
Feb 18th 2008 7:35PM Gosh guys, 1% is not a noticeable change. Of course when the patch hits, the placebo effect will run its course and have all the elemental shamans thinking 'though the tooltip says they have 25% spell crit, it feels like only 10'.
Stop the whining, just once, please.
Feb 12th 2008 10:25PM About 2/2 Empowered Healing Touch. The most common use a resto druid has for Healing Touch is the emergency Nature's Swiftness + Healing Touch macro. You can use it at most every 3 minutes, and while in PvE you shouldn't have to use it that often, it's a lifesaver in PvP. Are the 2 points worth the situational bonus? It might depend on how much you PvP.
Feb 12th 2008 9:42PM "Improved Regrowth (5/5) - Increases the crit chance of Regrowth by 50%. If you're not using Tree of Life, this is an excellent use of 5 points." You can actually cast regrowth in tree form. Even though it has a direct heal component to it, it's still considered a hot as far as treeform is concerned.
