Breakfast Topic: Titillating titles {WoW}

Feb 3rd 2009 6:32AM I've got an old L18 tauren druid who has the "Sargeant" title still.... I'm currently extremely tempted to do a name change to "Pepper" and make a guild called "The Lonely Hearts Club Band".

Jan 21st 2009 6:27AM Zero mention of the nerfs to steady shot or the various pet talents? Not a very comprehensive writeup imo.

Preparing for Wrath Day 8: Your bank {WoW}

Nov 6th 2008 1:17PM @ Dupeguy

Quoted from Copernicus at Elitist Jerks

So based on the current information:

All tanks should be leatherworkers, because there's no WotLK bracer enchant for Stamina and the 90 Stamina bonus on Fur Lining is insane. This also gives a minor boost with the resist enchants in case a resist fight shows up.

Until epic gems are introduced, Jewelcrafting gives the biggest boost because of metagem and socketing bonuses. It also has the side effect of being customizable in case a different stat is better than raw SP or AP. If or when epic gems are introduced, Jewelcrafting becomes very average and requires justification by eliminating bad gem colors.

Blacksmithing is arguably the second best profession for non-tanks. The two bonus gem slots are comparable to the bonuses other professions give (with rare gems) and become much more powerful with epic gems. The customization is probably what pushes it over the top. If you can get by with raw SP or AP, then Inscription/Leatherworking/Alchemy are all reasonable alternatives to Blacksmithing.

---

Summary-

Tanks: Jewelcrafting and Leatherworking
Non-tanks that want not-AP/SP: Jewelcrafting and Blacksmithing
Non-tanks with AP/SP only: Jewelcrafting and Blacksmithing/Inscription/Alchemy/Leatherworking/Enchanting

Things that can cause this to change - epic gems (kills the power of Jewelcrafting and greatly increases the power of Blacksmithing) and a bracer enchant that's 48 stamina worse than Fur Lining- Stamina.

Preparing for Wrath Day 8: Your bank {WoW}

Nov 6th 2008 4:23AM I agree with your general evaluation Galtus, however with some caveats regarding non metal resources. You take good account of the effect of an influx of DK players, but make little or no consideration of people changing professions. Many players will re-evaluate their profession choices come wrath, and many, particularly min/maxers will change professions on their mains. Similarly to DKs they will not want to waste time levelling skinning/herbing etc so I also predict a temporary rise in the cost of ALL general profession levelling mats, not just ores. This is particularly the case for leather, as the fur lining enchants are being touted by many as some of the best profession benefits around.

Well that's my punt at least, but you cant go wrong with ores.

Also note that many DKs will also take inscription (not wanting to abandon 375 profs on their 70s) which I predict to cause another mini peak in demand for herbs in the 1st 2 weeks of Wrath.

World of Warcraft 3.0.3 Patch notes {WoW}

Nov 4th 2008 9:32AM OK thanks again. Sounds like it's pretty useless having both at least. Like you say we'll have to get testing.

World of Warcraft 3.0.3 Patch notes {WoW}

Nov 4th 2008 6:16AM @ Murmilos

Thanks for this, I understand how normal prayer of spirit works, but I'm referring to is improved divine spirit rank 2 From Wowhead:

Your Divine Spirit and Prayer of Spirit spells also increase the target's spell power by an amount equal to 100% of the Spirit granted.

So I'm thinking this element wont stack with the aura... is this correct?

World of Warcraft 3.0.3 Patch notes {WoW}

Nov 4th 2008 4:40AM Can I confirm that because of this patch it will not be worth me spending extra points in improved divine spirit on my priest as the buff will be overwritten by a an improved moonkin aura? (I always run with a boomkin).

"Prayer of Spirit: Will no longer stack with other raid spell power buffs. "

Or am I misinterpreting it?

Blizzard retracts honor point changes: honor points will not be reset {WoW}

Oct 1st 2008 6:28AM See my response above... The new items that would be released WERE announced, what other information apart from official Blizzard statements did people have to base their decisions on?
