Oct 28th 2010 9:57PM However, my question was related to PvP normalisation of defences since most dps in PvE environments need not worry too much.
No doubt dps will be normalised to be roughly equal in both PvE and PvP environments as cata rolls out. My question was really aimed at whether Blizz have addressed the huge discrepancy that existed in Wotlk from the gods of PvP defenses (Paladins), past the other plate classes and hybrid classes through to the bottom of the defence capabilities that are the pure dps classes.
If they don't then the death of pure dps classes will continue and we will see more and more Paladins and hybrid classes, which I think is bad for the game.
Oct 28th 2010 11:24AM Have Blizzard normalized defenses fro dps classes in Cata? It was a joke to have normalised dps but have some classes have way better defenses in Wotlk.
Oct 18th 2010 5:12PM Any news on the proposed tenacity changes to WG and Tol Barad? Last I head, Blizzard were going to implement a system in 4.0.1 whereby the amount of players was to be controlled by the faction with the least players queued.
This hasn't happened but I missed any announcements on this
Oct 10th 2010 4:28PM Aside from a rocky beginning, Blizzard seemed to have gotten the dps reasonably balanced as WotLK matured. However, they never seemed to address the vastly different defensive capabilities of the dps classes/specs.
Anyone know if Blizzard ever admitted that failing to normalise the defensive capabilities of the dps classes/specs was an error and are they attempting to address the offensive and defensive capabilities in Cataclysm? Or are we going to have another expansion where dps capabilities are roughly equal but defensibility isn't?
Sep 24th 2010 9:11PM This quest chain is a lot of fun but it does take a lot of time to farm all the Dungeon Set 1 pieces (especially the chest) and summon the Duke of Cynders (I hate the RNG).
Imo, the amount of time and effort needed to upgrade all the pieces even at level 80 makes this one of the strongest candidates that deserves an achievement or a Feat of Strength (completing the Shartuul's transporter event in Blades Edge Mountains is another that really should have an achievement).

Sep 15th 2010 12:38PM So Jimmy, Have you ever seen Spartacus? Have you ever been in a Turkish Prison?
Sep 13th 2010 7:17PM I have a number of friends that are dotted about at various guilds that have all epressed an interest in getting back together and creating a new guild for 10 man raiding and rated BGs. It certainly seems like a fair idea but there have been concerns raised as to whether small intimate guilds will be too disadvantaged compared with the bigger guilds.
Does anyone know to what level of disadvantage smaller guilds will have? Does the guild reward mechansim encourage guilds or larger guilds?
Aug 27th 2010 5:36PM I know you get asked a lot of questions relating to professions and most of the answers are simply that it is too early but I was wondering whether there were any clues as to whether we will be returning to BoP profession items like in BC or sticking with BoE items only from WotLK.
I can't decide whether to drop Leatherworking or skinning from my Hunter to take up Engineering.
Aug 27th 2010 4:51PM "This color change appears to be genetic as Thrall, who had little direct exposure to warlock magic until recently, has had green skin from birth."
Interesting, but why is Garrosh brown skinned? Grom certainly drank the blood and was exposed to Fel Magic during his time on Draenor during the first 2 wars, presumably whilst Garrosh was growing up.
