May 5th 2009 7:34PM Combat Rez, Bloodlust, and Blessing of Kings are pretty much the only unique buffs left. If it is that vital that Bloodlust be spread around, then the other two abilities need to be shared as well. Kings is largely considered the most powerful buff in the game in a generic sense. Combat Rez is really nice on progression or to rectify a Class A F-Up one of your moron raiders decides to pull.
Why limit the complaints to just one buff?
Apr 25th 2009 8:21PM This is in reference to your claim that Resilience is no longer the necessity it once was.
Apr 25th 2009 8:19PM Have fun pvping with little resilience. My Mage just hit 500 res and I still feel the pain from crits.
Dec 17th 2008 1:29PM Currently, the deck doesn't seem to be stacked against any particular class. Instead, the deck is stacked against PvP players who either have no desire or opportunity to raid. We missed out on at least two alternatives to acquiring gear preemptively. Running Heroics daily, or semi-daily, you could save up the Emblems necessary to buy 2+ pieces of the PvP sets on day one. With capped honor and a ton of badges, you might be able to pick up 2 pieces if you didn't buy the expensive ones. I'm sure there are extreme cases where strict PvP players managed to get more, but I'm not one of them.
Compounding this issue is the fact that PvE damage gear severely outstrips crafted and Savage PvP gear. If you've been into Naxx a few times, you have everything you need to start competing unless you've been incredibly unlucky.
I have a feeling this will level out somewhat in the end, when people are able to actually reach meaningful levels of resilience. It is currently very frustrating, though. I'm being punished for enjoying PvP to the exclusion of PvE.
(As a side note: I think the argument could be made that - fair being fair - if PvE players are able to purchase PvP gear with PvE acquired means, then PvP players should be able to purchase Tier and PvE equivalent gear with Honor, Marks, or Arena Points.)
Oct 16th 2008 1:53PM Um, guys? Art of War only increases crit damage right now, not crit rate. So this is actually a huge overall buff to sustained DPS (and makes up for some of the burst loss).
Oct 8th 2008 9:54AM I'm running a MacBook with a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (I upgraded it). Will I be ok?
