Feb 8th 2009 2:00PM I'm not positive on expertise for tanks.
However, for DPS, expertise is a much larger return per point than AP pre-cap. I believe (and this is pure memeory) EJ has AP with a 1.0 stat value, Str with a 2.4 stat value and Expt before cap as a 2.8 value
Though that's also pre hitcap, as not being hitcapped gives a bigger return on expt. If I remember right it's 2.4 hitcapped.
So, 50 AP translates into 50.0
15 Expt = 36 (42 if not hit capped)
However, this is all in theory, in practice getting a dodge at JUST the wrong time lowers your DPS a lot more than 50 AP would ever increase it.
Jan 30th 2009 1:03PM Wait, no more posting first thing in the morning, I can't believe I missed that.
Jan 30th 2009 1:01PM You might want to add on there that these are the same guys that do/are from the "Dude Where's My Mount?" series on youtube.
Aug 30th 2008 10:55AM That is a tauren, not undead, as said above.
Otherwise, nifty screen, I miss nef.
Jul 28th 2008 4:27AM Guys, jeez, chill out would you?
Not ALL classes are getting "uber cool 1337 talents".
Hunters have (while very strong talents overall) very lackluster 51-pointers. The coolest IMO being the 51 pt survival talent. And survival takes a good amount of end-game gear to support (700+ agil).
Mages... well... mages just got shafted. Very sad, too bad I don't play a mage.
I played a Rogue from early 06 to late 07, and it's not that bad. In PvP you will still be fine, no, you'll be better. Those of you griping about riposte need to calm down and read what info is out there from the beta.
You have a new skill (trainable) I believe at 80. This skill is basically riposte 2.0. You don't need to parry, you don't need to do anything. You just use it. It's got a 1 min CD. IT REMOVES ALL WEAPONS, SHIELDS, AND ANYTHING IN THOSE SLOTS. Many speculate it will also work with ranged weapons, say, hunters.
You're also, and will likely remain, one of the best classes in PvP. Sure, a warlock can now time a Chaos Bolt to kill you when you CoS. It's not going to end up as that big of a deal.
Not to mention those going deep Assassination will get the ability to remove bleed effects at no cost. No more guaranteed deaths against Warriors.
Before you QQ next time, at least read info from WotLKWiki and other such resources before you complain about things that aren't even live yet. Try better to grasp the big picture.
