Sep 27th 2008 8:59PM Actually, he makes several good points. I'm sorry, does that upset you? Evocation much? Mana gems? A warlock has to pay for mana with health, so it ain't an unlimited supply, unless you want to spend msot of your time draining life. Go make love to your water elemental, and quit whining.
Everything is in a state of flux right now. It is beta. And at current, not to many classes are really happy with where they are at. Blizzard hit a sweet spot for classes, but instead of actually going with what they had, and changing numbers, they decided to screw up a number of things. Nearly EVERYONE suffered from this. Not just mages. Get over it, and keep posting useful feedback in the beta and PTR forums, and not the usual "OMG, I die to hunters/warlocks/rogues!" crap I see all the time.
Sep 25th 2008 6:47PM I....almost never say things like this, but GTFO. Seriously. Are you even paying attention to whats going on in the beta? Your not even IN the beta, are you? Mirror image ringing any bells? Warlocks being tuned to do less damage then mages? No? Pay better attention.
Meta......I can't.....say...to much good about it. It barely feels like a good stall at current. It doesn't really feel like it fits in well at all, honestly. It is still missing something. Right now its basically just a hyped up shadow form, but with a 30 second duration, and not much meaningful going into it. Sure, it'll be a nice stall in PvE when you accidentally draw aggro when soul shatter is up, and for buying you ten more seconds against a rogue, but it doesn't flow well. Blaugh.
Sep 25th 2008 6:38PM You think...the horde doesn't whine? *LAUGHS* and *LAUGHS* Oh, god, thats amusing.
But seriously, enough is enough. In a min/maxing world, the horde racials are in general seen to be the 'optimal' racials, so anyone 'leet' or 'hardcore' is naturally going to roll horde. Add that into the mostly mistaken bad guy idea, and you have it attracting a mid to older crowd. By contrast, the alliance are the good guys ((Har har)) and tend to attract a younger crowd.
To say that the alliance whines more then the horde is just plain stupid and un-informed. I have high levels of both sides, and unless you run with a pre-made, your going to see an equal number of whiners in both camps, even more so after the introduction of blood elves. I don't usually knock articles here, but this was more then a little immature and unnessecary.
Sep 25th 2008 6:29PM And I respectfully disagree with you. Our job as healers is to keep everyone alive, and to revive individuals who die when that fails. It is NOT, however, our job to cater to people who feel like being lazy. At the very least people should be considerate and ask if they should release or wait for a revive, not just automatically assume we're going to do it just because we can.
Sep 24th 2008 9:51PM Oh my GOD, do you people ever stop whining?! This is an increase to TOTEM SURVIVAL for one, a major issue with shamans every where. A buff to rip-tide, which is far, FAR more amazing then spirit link. Spirit link gave a minor survivability in arenas, ONE aspect, and gave you some protection against CC. We now have a fully functional, instant heal with an HoT. The minor nerf to elemental, sure, be a bit upset about that, but for the love of GOD, try to look on the bright side.
By many accounts, elemental's damage is still competetive, and we're not sure about enhancement because of a busted main hand windfury. In the mean time, if your in the beta or on the PTR, KEEP TESTING, and if your not, stop whining until you see the end result. Theory crafting does not a class make.
Sep 22nd 2008 8:58PM My death knight just hit 68 and I ran right into Northrend, no problems what so ever. A small spike in difficulty, but it just made the fights last maybe three seconds longer. You can, and at sixty eight should just hop both feet first into Northrend.

Sep 21st 2008 7:22PM Good to see your grasp of whats going on is tenuous at best. This is the BETA. In order to facilitate the testing process, Blizzard allows play testers into their realms to root out bugs, issues, and other problems. NOT to make baseless, ignorant comments about Blizzards capabilities on the forum. That is known as 'trolling'. Had he had some suggestion, some valid and logical complain, instead of "It won't be done, WAUGH!" then I'd call it overly harsh. As it stands, Tigole has been seriously cracking down lately. Maybe he is feeling short tempered, or maybe they have just decided to ((Finally)) lay down the law on morons. Whatever the reason, the less people in the beta who aren't actually testing, the better.
Sep 21st 2008 7:17PM Do you have any idea how many EU threads whine about "WAUGH, THE US FORUMS GET MORE ATTENTION, WAUGH!" I think at this point they are frickin' tired of it, and are just locking on sight now.
Sep 18th 2008 1:15AM Sorry for the double post, just clarifying that I mean while in aspect of the viper.
