Aug 30th 2008 5:00PM Another pally tank question:
As far as gear goes...
I know that they are changing the way our spells scale to be inclusive of both spell power and attack power, but are they changing gear to match? Will we see plate with +Strength, +Spell Power AND +Defense? Are they changing any of the current T4, T5 or T6 pieces to match the need of the pally tank?
My tanking T4 pieces don't have much (if any) +Strength, which with my crude math, means that I am going to loose a bit on the "punch" of my Avenger's Shield, etc. If they aren't changing it, what pieces should I be looking at getting to still be a viable pally tank in Wrath?
Or have I missed the boat entirely on how this is supposed to work?
Aug 29th 2008 11:42AM As our guild's pally tank, I would like to know for sure if Divine Shield (with the talents in place) is in fact an aggro dump still or just a damage reduction.
It would be amazing to have this as a shield-wall like function and be able to put it into rotation through boss fights during the rare "OOM!" from my healers.
Again...great article, thank you for keeping the un-lucky ones informed and listening to our questions!
Aug 26th 2008 8:09AM I have asked this before, but with the pending release, I was hoping that progress had been made and someone in the Beta could answer...
In regards to the GC, my guild is a smaller guild and we tend to partner with another smaller guild to do 25-man raids. To do this we use a mod with a shared channel. Will the WoW GC have a similar function, or is it only your guild mates that can see the events. I realize that there is the option to "Invite" other players (I am assuming that aren't in your guild), but that seems a little tedious to send invites to the entire partner guild each and every week...
Thanks for your input and help.
Aug 8th 2008 11:45AM I was wondering about the new calendar. We currently use a MOD to coordinate raids/instances between two guilds. Will the new WoW calendar have this ability or is it limited to members of one's own guild?
I know that there is the option to send invites to players, but that seems a pain to throw an invite to every member of our partner guild.
BTW...excellent work so far on the information that you have been posting. No major spoilers without the "Spoiler Alert after Break" and some fantastic commentary all the way around. Keep up the GREAT work!
