Apr 4th 2012 2:35PM I'm concerned about the emphasis on our shadowy apparitions, given how often I have bugged versions of them standing around during fights (not to mention their lack of use vs flying mobs).
And the change to VE makes me a sad pan...err, shadow priest. I'm sure it will still be very useful, but the current version is one of the reasons I rolled the class/spec in the first place.
Mar 21st 2012 3:06PM Sorry, but I love Dispersion. Nothing like riding a mount as a glowing ball, aside from the boring-but-practical uses such as surviving, etc.
On the other hand, I support your "Give Us Shadow Ravens" platform.

Nov 16th 2011 2:43PM Sadly, I have to agree. It's possible for leaders to emerge in a random selection of 25 players, and things will be easier once the general population has experience with the new raids. But overall I suspect that a lot of players will drop at the first sign of trouble given the time commitment involved, and those not used to raiding might get scared off altogether from the antics of impatient, experienced raiders using LFR for their alts.
A friend of mine who doesn't normally raid has expressed a great deal of interest in this feature. I'd really like to get him to give it a shot and see what he thinks.
Nov 16th 2011 2:17PM "We are the shadowy 68%."
All raid-seriousness aside, I want to start using that as my new raid slogan, replacing "The mooses are aroused!" (the result of a late-night encounter between Beth'tilac and some irate Canadians).
Oct 19th 2011 4:54PM Agreed. I should be starting on the 250 Essences next week (when our mage currently working on this finishes), and already the staff is amazing, plus the quest chain itself is very enjoyable.
Oct 19th 2011 9:04AM Yup, sometimes feel the same way, such as right now, when my fifth/currently final 85 is slogging her ways through the FL dailies, and I have my main and an alt regularly saying hello to Ragnaros (heroic and regular versions, respectively).
Feeling a little "meh" about doing things in game, I've broken my no-more-alts rule and started leveling a warrior. I'm not even giving her any heirloom items so she doesn't race through zones so quickly & I can wander through the plots at a leisurely pace.
Oct 7th 2011 11:57AM I was thrilled with the shape-changing druid in the Vanilla cinematic when I first loaded up WoW 5 years ago. The friends who got me to play were Horde, and thus my Tauren Druid was born...and lasted 6 months as my main, when much of my guild took advantage of a server transfer to head to what they though would be green pastures, and I decided that I had had enough of playing on a PvP server dominated by Alliance.
My druid collected digital dust until about halfway through Wrath. One weekend on a whim I started leveling him up, and eventually paid for a server transfer to my current PvE one. He's now my primary gatherer (herbalist/miner), so he gets plenty of screen time on top of the occasional heroic.
Oct 6th 2011 8:22AM Three of my 85 already had the Brewmaster achievement, and I don't plan to worry about the other two -- so no goals there to meet.
But once again, after trying for the ram and kodo (*especially* the ram, since we don't have those Horde-side) ever since the first Brewfest, no mounts for me.
Sep 1st 2011 10:32AM I really wanted the T5 set -- it's partly what inspired me to role a priest (who subsequently became my main).
The wings, however, look a bit...large...on my Troll priest's hulking shoulders. Makes him look like some sort of giant bird with a slouching problem. So now I'm off for the T6 instead while figuring out a weapon later (thanks to everyone for your suggestions/ideas).
And maybe this is just me, but I'd rather have a complete set to look good *out* of shadowform as well. Trolls do have an image to maintain after all.
