Mar 1st 2009 2:39PM Just to quickly affirm that it isn't a PvP buff, it is really a PvP nerf.
As described here:
Be nice if you updated the post with that info, I would hate the misinformation to get distributed. Especially when resto druids are at the bottom of all 3 arena ladders (a first for any healer in arena and we keep getting nerfed!)
Dec 21st 2008 3:23AM Rather ironic how the article author is complaining about burst and damage and survivability in arenas in comparison to all other damage dealers.
Balance druids have had it like that ever since season 1 at often a far greater disadvantage. Even with the extra dmg increase, we still don't have even the tools 'locks do. Yet you get developer attention etc. etc. whilst we continue to get the line of "working as intended".
Perhaps you should check the rankings of classes in arenas...and stop some rather wild accusations. There are groups far worse off than you and have been for many seasons past.
Sep 24th 2008 4:11AM The news post needs to be updated.
Blizzard stated back in May that honor would not be reset.
They then stated today that it was done to stop people getting full epic tier sets of gear.
Except that this reason is invalid.
You can't get full epic sets of gear, in fact you can't even get a piece of epic gear at level 80 with 10000000000000000 honor. This is because you need arena points to buy any piece of epic gear which are resetting anyway. The only gear you could buy is blue gear really isn't any better than the current pvp gear. http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?topic=17417.0
The only reason they could be doing this is to force people to play the game more come expansion... all they are doing is adding a time sink. Yet they continue to mislead us about it. Taking honor away at this stage is the same thing as taking any other material or gold away. It stinks.
