Apr 8th 2010 7:20PM I play a Resto shaman in PvE only (I dislike pvp) and I am extremely sad to see cleansing totem go. I don't think dispelling is fun and I don't see why blizzard thinks that it will be. Call me crazy but without many HOTs, I always get annoyed that I have to stop casting heals for dispels. Especially since I seem to have a hard time (especially in the default UI) seeing those curses, diseases, and such. One of the things I likes about the Shaman was that I had a totem to help me with this sort of thing.
RIP Cleansing Totem. I think this "make healing fun" is only going to hurt people who enjoy healing now.
May 6th 2009 6:20PM I disagree with you guys. Heroic UP should not be one of the first heroic dungeon a new tank goes into. Following your mantra of normal mode before heroics, and then suggesting jumping to H UP is kinda crazy. UK would be a better choice.
Apr 26th 2009 11:46AM This event is a huge failure in my book so far. I tried "hunting" and found that the area the eggs spawn in is tiny, like just the starting area itself and not the wider starting zone. Every single spawn was being camped and I couldn't get a *single* egg, and even then people whispered me and accused me of trying to ninja their spawn points as I tried to find a un-camped spawn.
I think I am going to write this one off.
Apr 14th 2009 1:51PM Look like I am going to hold off on setting up BMA on my iPhone just in case...
/crossfingers that the servers actually stay up once the patch goes live.
Mar 31st 2009 10:20PM This is fantastic news for people like me with slight color blindness. I have been religious about using the Colorblind addon for years. There is a long way to go in encounter design however. I dread encounters like Netherspite, where color differentiation is so enormously important. There is alot of stigma against people with color blindness, as people don't really understand it at all. I refuse to think of this as a disability as I have many way I use to cope IRL and when playing WoW with this problem. But I do hope that Blizzard is going to make some changes to address issues with the encounters as well as the changes to the UI.
Dec 10th 2008 9:23AM Overreacting much? Here is a thought...most of the player base *never reads the forums* and won't be nerd raging over these long overdue changes. Yes, they should have been done in Beta, but they really need to be done.
Jun 22nd 2008 9:38PM For those of you out there having problems with this fight, tyou are not alone. This encounter is not as easy (or fun) as the poster makes it sound, unless you are way overgeared. Easily the hardest Heroic Boss I have ever seen. Like a raid boss only with 5 people. Even on normal mode the adds will usually spawn faster then they can be killed unless you have solid DPS. I saw T4/5 groups wipe time after time on this...What is funny is that the loot that drops is bad enough where if you can get it you won't want or need it, except for offspec. A huge disappointment for me as I loved the Headless Horseman encounter. You can tell it is not nearly as popular too.
My advice is don't try to pug it. You need a solid group for this.
Apr 3rd 2008 10:10AM Ummm...the SSO is about the factions working together. PvP realms suck at that. I am proud to be on proudmoore and working towards the same goal as the Horde players.
Mar 25th 2008 11:38AM I didn't notice the change to Earth Shield in the patch notes, but I can't help but think that this is going to affect my PvE healing negatively. I like the 10 charges, since I pop my trinkets and don't have to recast for awhile, it is like having a Hot on the MT, especially useful in fights where I have to run back a forth healing others. Why are they changing that?
