Jan 9th 2010 7:17AM My account was hacked recently. It was inactive for a few months and someone obtained the login information somehow. Renewed my account and ditched my pally's prot spec for a ret one. The account is frozen now, Blizzard offered me 2500 gold and 60 emblems of frost per lvl 80 character on the account. Only got 2 lvl 80's but thats not bad. Is this the sweetened package or the usual offering?
Jan 3rd 2010 4:12AM Too much WoW happened to me a few months back, happened to coincide with my subscription expiring so thats not too bad. I had just got my pally to 80 and geared him up to about 10 ToC level holy and prot. It was quite a lot of playtime, my paladin doesn't have a raiding guild, but luckily my server has a very healthy pugging community. Found out about Cataclysm's level cap increase and suddenly lost almost all motivation to keep playing.
My account is currently hacked, found out recently through a friend who still plays. Who ever has the account respec'd my pally to RET! And has him in mostly PVP gear and a few pieces from the prot set : / a real shame. Still jumping through hoops with Blizzard to get it back, so hopefully it will be restored in time for Cataclysm.
Dec 15th 2009 7:04PM Was the change to Everlasting affliction needed? An affliction lock that doesn't have Haunt on his target at all times should probably respec. The only times I've seen Corruption fall off have been due to lag spikes/heavy movement. This could be intended to cause Corruption to reset much more frequently, thus making it take less advantage of spikes in your haste rating from raid buffs/trinkets etc.
Oct 31st 2009 6:19PM LOL I have a character on Jubei'thos and yeah its ninja city. I've probably run into most downright shameless ninjas on that server. The kind that will be extremely rude to everyone in the pug once people start calling the raid leader out for being a ninja. I had Illustration of the Dragonsoul ninja'd from me twice on that server.
Oct 12th 2009 10:11PM Nice to see frequent Blood Pact posts these days. I personally prefer the Chaos Bolt glyph, cause it gives Chaos Bolt the same cooldown as conflagrate and I always cast a conflag right after my Chaos Bolt. This keeps my rotation really balanced and rhythmic. I don't see any particular dps loss, I still hang right up there with the guys who prefer the other glyphs.
Oct 10th 2009 3:46PM I think Blizzard will still have to do more within the demonology tree to buff damage for when your target is above 35%. Cause I dont know if the changes are enough to help deep demo builds catch up in the last few seconds of the fight. Sure deep demo builds have the highest spell power (soon to be even higher) but they dont have access to all the damage scaling talents the other builds have.
Oct 8th 2009 9:18PM Great write-up. Very informative as usual :) The conflagrate nerf hurts...it really does, cause I know how I felt the first time I cast its revised version and hit for 14k, I was as happy as a little school girl seeing a 5 digit number from an instant cast spell. I know many of us will miss it should this change make it to live realms.
Oct 7th 2009 6:30PM Actually direct damaging and healing classes are the ones at the top atm. This is a buff for the underdogs.
Oct 7th 2009 6:04PM Set bonuses that add time should be thought of as adding 'ticks' to the dot. So the time between the ticks will be reduced. My guess is that unless this is scaled properly it could be a disproportionate damage increase. Haste will probably have a greatly reduced affect on damage over time spells, or damage over time spells with be nerfed. Blizzard will probably nerf the mana/energy/rage cost of dots along with their damage to implement the haste change.
Oct 7th 2009 5:50PM Affliction will probably be back on top for warlocks.
