Jan 11th 2009 9:20PM cc and the such were a great part of the game, it helped determine a "terribad" right from the first heroic.
blizz is marketing to the no skill masses even more.
any moron can spam one aoe at a pile of mobs and look great.
this game sucks.
Jan 9th 2009 2:41AM I blew on them. then I rocked them. only because of fights where there were lots of AOE pulls and AOE healing.
the key is who did what was most needed, who kept the tank up when half the raid was still looking at loot, who actually used guardian spirit in the last few percentage points of a boss fight.
assignments, and fights. often determine who will top the meter.
but looking into what was casted and by whom in which fight paints the picture.
recount is nice for that. that from a holy priest who WILL spam aoe heals if I know I have heals on the tanks, but will stay in range, not get silenced and be in place for that critical heal at the right time.
its bunk, but its not.
Jan 8th 2009 5:03PM simple solution would be to end this stupid have to have a set server thing, and do as other games and allow players to just pick what server they want to log onto.
I usually played my friend's servers anyway, but it wouldn't be such a bottleneck.
but then blizz wouldn't make 25 bucks for every person that they really really pissed off with ques.
Jan 6th 2009 4:41PM well the above will get you there but my apologies
is the correct link. cutting edge. and a long long time in development.
Jan 4th 2009 9:33PM walter... tanks get bounced, healers get silenced... sapphron has a friggin 50yard hitbox but the tank is in ten of that.
to compare kara to mother shariz or worst of alll saphhron blow me and learn to heal.
Jan 4th 2009 9:16PM the more I look the more I see the opening poster aka wowinsider guy is totally off about spellpower.
at least considering priests.
bam I just tossed a 5-6k heal, oh here have a mana free 19k greater.
dude... the extra 200 spell power won't save a raid, nor will the mp5. its the crits, longevity and the raid makeup that will at least where priests are concerened. jevus....
Jan 4th 2009 9:07PM patrick my stats are no where great and I don't know why you lashed out at me....
but... I agree, that tanks who suck and think that they can chain pull mobs that should have been cc'ed due to the dps that the group has, and dps that well is terribad since the first week of december is part to blame.
the bigges problem is that blizz made everything "PEW PEW" because of pvp and that the noobs starting pvp content, especially heroics feel that that is the way to approach the task.
so its fail tanks, fail healers, and fail dps for not knowing what +hit is.
Jan 4th 2009 8:16PM the spellpower solution is a bit off in my opinion.
granted armoried i"m at 1800 toss in innerfire i'm at 2k plus...
I could easily buff that to 2200 via chants gear swaps and gem changes, but it gimps me in terms of mana free insta cast heals, and moreso crits.
so I keep the spellpower down, and make sure I never miss an insta cast mana free surge of light proc, and a greater consecration greater heal. which crits.. lol
so... just saying don't judge your healers by spellpower, I can and have outlasted a pally GM to his dismay and topped healing. go figure.
Jan 4th 2009 8:08PM great seasonal, that adds up to about
Drain Soul Rank 6
14% of base mana 30 yd range
Drains the soul of the target, causing 710 Shadow damage over 15 sec. If the target is at or below 25% health, Drain Soul causes four times
the normal damage.
now, if you can tolerate the ticks inbetween keeping the procs up and spamming incinerate more power to you.
you are lucky if that tick causes you to get a shard. and yes I know my class.
GLD owns you.
I raided everything from aq40-sunwell on him.
its not terribad locks, its a broken class, and again mr won't link his armory the soulshard thing is bullshit and no matter what you can scream that people don't know how to play and the such won't fix it.
so rose. stfu.
and aye. I played my healer and started leveling my mage. because guess what? one lock is all that you really want in a raid atm. thanks and bye.
