Apr 15th 2008 4:21PM I've been really pleased with the reception of this movie and song.
What most people don't know about this movie is that it was not only prior to the expansion pack, but it was also prior to the first mage love patch. A 1,500 crit back then was uber. Sure, some people could get bigger crits using stacked trinkets, but I refrained from using those as they were considered by many to be bad form and were a source of derision in many a Mage PvP video.
My preference would have been to leave the UI completely out of the movie. You'll notice I turned off every UI element that I could. For many shots I was able to use a "Camera man" to completely eliminate the UI, however some shots could only be filmed from the first person perspective so the damage numbers were included only because I couldn't get rid of them.
So... ignore the crits. These are not the crits you're looking for. My "new" gnome mage (who is actually a few years old now) has those. :)
