Do mages really need 3 competitive PvE specs? {WoW}

Feb 5th 2012 10:25AM I love frost, but hate having to have a pet with me all the time (same for Hunters).

Arcane Brilliance: Blinking into the Mists of Pandaria talent calculator, part deux {WoW}

Dec 5th 2011 7:32PM Does anyone else really like Frost but hate having the water elemental alongside you and wish that you could use an alternative to it i.e. have a spell with pure damage/another snare or a combination of both.

Please put the Water Elemental as one of our talents so we can swap it with something else...

Breakfast Topic: How would you revamp Outland? {WoW}

Nov 5th 2011 10:43AM Like your comments re. the Draenei and Belf starting zones also.

With the Draenei, perhaps the zone could be all about repairing the Exodar with the end being it teleporting back to Outland with preparations for the retaking of Outland beginning. Of course pesky Legion forces would be trying to stop this from happening.

I like your idea of rebuilding the other half of Silvermoon too. With the Scourge forces still being a problem - Fordragon hasn't regained grip of them all, has he? - so you could still have the Scourge storyline. Again, you could see the Shadowlands magically regrown to look like the rest of the Blood Elves land i.e. the Blood Elf Kingdoms would be (more or less) back to normal again.

Maybe the end of the starting zone story line would be in battling the remnants of the legion and fel belves and fully retaking the Sun Well?

Also I'd like to see a plot line where you could - if you chose to - get rid of the Fel addiction and get your normal blue eyes back.

Breakfast Topic: How would you revamp Outland? {WoW}

Nov 5th 2011 10:36AM Oh and to add to that, you'd have an expeditionary force by the Horde (as well as the Draenei) and lots of conflict between the two as you went through the zones.

Breakfast Topic: How would you revamp Outland? {WoW}

Nov 5th 2011 10:17AM Some great thoughts here, especially from Nagi.

I'd like to see the expeditionary force that you mention be lead by the Draenai - imagine if they get the Exodar up and running again and teleport it to just above the Dark Portal. The expansion could detail the re-taking of and healing of the lands by the Draenei - aided by the new allies, of course.

Imagine if this is to do with cleaning up the remaining Legion and Fel orcs in the area and returning the land to how it was before it got destroyed - you could leave this zone with it completely transformed. I'd envisage this working with the phase-shifting (I think it's called that) tech that Blizzard now has i.e. DK starting zone.

As you say, this would probably stay more or less the same. Perhaps it's just mopping up the naga. Perhaps some demons have fled from HFP and are Fel-corrupting the marshes.

Probably this would be pretty unaltered. Perhaps the focus could be on rebuilding Shrattrath and that big Draenei tomb/temple in the south of the zone (I forget what it's called). Perhaps the fel-Blood Elves are still around causing trouble, too.

Again, this wouldn't change much, I don't think. More ogre trouble! And again, the plot could revolve around both the orcs and Draenei resettling with Alliance / Horde conflict. Perhaps we could have a plot-line around healing the Broken, too.

This could be revamped with some conflict involving the Netherwing. And again, perhaps we'd see the zone 'healed' and starting to look the same way as it does currently right at the start of the zone with the Nelf and Orc strongholds

As someone else has said, perhaps you'd see the preserved land from the eco domes spread out to the entire zone - perhaps the entire zone has an eco dome around it as repairs are undertaken. Final showdown with the Fel Blood Elves and the Exodar gets teleported back to Tempest Keep.

Again, you could imagine that this would remain much the same with a showdown with the remnants of Ilidans forces who are sworn to the Legion now. Perhaps a last dramatic battle at the Dark Temple where they try to re-open a portal and are destroyed. We could see a great end to the expansion with SMV being healed and the Dark Temple again, a temple of the Draenei - everyone lives happily ever after!

Dungeons and Raids
You could probably leave these alone since they're disconnected from the world. Maybe these are accessible via the Bronze Dragon Flight i.e. 'here's what happened in these places when the Horde and the Alliance entered the Dark Portal 10 years ago' etc. etc.

And maybe we could have some gear level re-balancing i.e. so there isn't a jump so much from the original zones re. the gear. Oh and no clown suits when levelling too!

"There are no simple solutions" -- Design diversity in WoW {WoW}

Oct 18th 2011 3:46PM I'm really glad that Blizzard is doing what they are doing with progressive raid nerds and the Raid finder.

I'm in my 30s, have a challenging and stressful job plus a long commute and I play WoW pretty casually - I want to see the epic content (I don't necessarily want the best loot/stats) and I've not been able to see most of it as I haven't had the time or energy to sit there in a raid night after night. I just want to have moderate challenge but to see the most epic parts of the game.

Well done, Blizzard.

Breakfast Topic: What about Gilneas? {WoW}

Oct 18th 2011 3:26PM I hope that it's made into a zone for levelling or as a added extra for end-game.

I'd also like to see other zones such as the Sunwell be re-done, too. There's a lot of great old dead content and fantastic zones that are half-forgotten.

Breakfast Topic: How would you change Cataclysm? {WoW}

Apr 18th 2011 6:09PM Update the vanilla character models. Please. Please! They look absolutely terrible now. This is the one thing that really upsets me about the game - especially when you compare the vanilla PC animations to the Worgen and new Goblins.

Cataclysm Beta: Login screen music {WoW}

Aug 14th 2010 4:28AM I have to admit, I wanted to hear a march like the original WoW theme i.e. something immediately stirring - not a slow moving (but dramatic) orchestral piece like this.

Arcane Brilliance: Beta wishlist {WoW}

Jul 18th 2010 4:58AM I really like the Frost spec, but I never wanted to play a ranged + pet class - it's a real shame that to get the most out of my spec, I have to (sometimes). So no, to perm water elemental! I'd like it to behave far more like the DK base ghoul spell - i.e. it helps out with DPS when you starting rocking on a mob.
