Jul 23rd 2009 3:30PM See, THIS is the reaction I hate. It's not a beak. It's a Renaissance-era Italian mask (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masquerade_ball). The Masquerades were balls held for the upper class in Italy, and had a history of immorality, and also, several notable assassinations occured during Masquerades, with the killer using the masks to their advantage (Assassin's Creed 2 plays off this).
In truth, I think that this is actually one of the most badass rogue sets because of that. It is WIN.

Jul 21st 2009 5:18PM I'm a dual-specced holy/disc priest, and I switch as the fight requires... or based on if there is another healing priest. I don't think that having 2 holy priests or 2 discs is bad, necessarily, but having one of each tends to work far better, I've noticed. And yeah, due to Weakened Soul, 2 discs is worse than 2 holies, but as you've noted, with a little intelligence and dialogue, it isn't much of a problem.
A side note- I've heard very differing opinions on this, and I just wanted to hear some more: disc or holy for Mimiron? Holy has Guardian Spirit, but obviously Penance and Shields are very useful too (for Plasma Bursts, I mean). I'm not in the same time zone as my server, so I'm always busy during guild scheduled raids, so I pretty much always have to PuG Ulduar, so Phase 1 is all I've ever seen- I seriously don't understand puggers sometimes, they do such stupid things....

Jul 17th 2009 9:44PM TWENTY bonus points to chipersoft for continuing the quote. Well done, sir! And as interesting as I think it would be if the Worgen can switch, I personally wouldn't like that. For one, if they could switch like druids, that would probably mean that Worgen wouldn't get armor models... and I really, really want to see a Worgen in plate or rogue leather. That would rock the house. And two, I don't like the idea of it just being a form for them. I want being turned into Worgen to alter their minds, not just their bodies. Form shapes mind, after all.
Jul 17th 2009 4:32PM And my draenei priest, my draenei warrior, my draenei paladin, and the raiding guild that depends on them are all really glad you're not in charge, kabshiel. I'd hate to play some blue potatofaced octopus.
Jul 17th 2009 4:26PM Oh, come on. It will be fun to play as the Worgen (assuming they actually ARE added), and that's all that matters. Furries? Well, let me put it this way... we already have Druid erpers who tactically use their forms, and Hunter erpers who leave their pets out, if you know what I mean. Creeps will be creeps, and you can't change that! Not by gettin' all... bendy.... (Ten bonus points to whoever can place the quote. The full quote is "I'm in charge here, and you can't change that! Not by gettin' all... bendy....")
Jul 15th 2009 4:36PM While that's a good point, Kylene, what you have to consider is that the Night Elves didn't know that. They had no idea what Illidan's goals were. And frankly, it's not that outrageous to think that after locking somebody up for ten thousand years, he'd be trying to hurt you and yours. Sure, the truth of the matter was that he was doing a pretty good thing. Heck, I like Illidan as a character. But as far as the Night Elves knew? He was trying to rip Kalimdor a new arse, or something. That he would be after the Lich King isn't exactly the first conclusion you would come to.
Jul 15th 2009 4:11PM It's hard not to. She's arrogant, self-centered, and holier-than-thou... and then there are her bad traits. Seriously, I hated her from the moment, in Warcraft 3, as she's murdering all the Watchers, and goes to break Illidan out, and Malfurion yells for her not to do it. Her answer? "Only the Goddess may forbid me anything". Oh boy. So you think you're above not only the orders of superiors, but the very rule of law? Yeah. You suck.
Jul 15th 2009 4:05PM Sure, she left Tyrande behind. That wasn't very nice of her. But 1) Tyrande had proved that she held little regard for the rule of law, and was willing to do some pretty stupid shit in her quest (who really thinks murdering the watchers to release Illidan was a good idea?), and 2) Tyrande fell in a RIVER. She wasn't swarmed by the undead or any such shit. She took an unintended swim, boo-hoo. Given the capacity of Warcraft heroes, I think it extremely likely that Maiev told that lie because she knew Tyrande was alive.
She told that lie because frankly, shit needed taking care of, and "Mal" wouldn't have had the balls to take care of business before running off to save Tyrande, and thus jeopardizing everything they had been working for. Cruel and mercenary of her? I would say yes. But hardly evil.
