Apr 20th 2010 1:11PM After watching them all I decided I had to link them on my facebook page and to all my friends. All three of these videos tell the whole story so well it was hard not to share.
Apr 12th 2010 1:09AM I can see how this would be funny. And for a short time there I was almost believing what I read here. But there was an itch somewhere in the back of my mind from the moment I read the first sentence of this post.
Must have been my "something needs burning sense" tingling. (and usually that only goes off when there is a warlock near by.)
I wonder what the devs at blizzard would say if they looked at this post though. Perhaps it will point out to them that there are far too many similarities between the classes and the fact that the class previews on both showed us even more similarities showing up may make them reconsider these changes.
Yeah...right....that's about as likely as a warlock casting a frost spell.
Apr 10th 2010 3:44AM As a fire mage, I can't say I'm happy with the prospect of losing 3% damage from Playing with Fire and 3% crit from Pyromaniac (unless that haste is in addition to the current talent). I understand that they had planned on getting rid of mechanics like this as they exist in the current game. less talents giving flat buffs to damage and other stats and such. But without seeing where we're making it up....*shrugs*
Can't say I like the health into mana thing. Really doesn't sound wise...especially for pvp mages. I'm a fire mage...not an warlock....I'd rather keep healers happy by not cutting myself and forcing them to spend more time healing me thx...
I don't understand why they are getting rid of fire/frost ward and amplify/dampen magic entirely. That smacks as being lazy to me. Yeah they aren't very helpful as they are right now. But to just remove them is kinda suspect.
Even with all this in mind, I have to say the three spells they are adding are kinda cool. Not sure what to think about the magelust...but it should at least prove interesting. Any more than that I'll have to withhold my judgment. I'm sure this is but a few changes for the class in 4.0. So we'll have to wait and see what all this really means for mages.
Apr 8th 2010 10:27AM For me my days spent defending and taking Halaa were the first enjoyable and memorable pvp I did.
There was more than one time when the battle would start small and both sides would eventually call in friends to better their odds.
I've been meaning to go back to Halaa. If for nothing else than for the two mounts earned through pvp in that area. ^ ^
Mar 20th 2010 10:00PM But I think you're missing the point. The FFB spec is based on a spell that was brand new in Wrath. Sure hybrid specs can be fun. And that crazy kid would have probably enjoyed his not so optimized spec. But he also wasn't given a spell that was inputted into the game with the specific purpose of having a talent build around it.
Otherwise, I'd agree that its not possible for every conceivable spec to be viable. In this case however, this spell was meant to have a spec built just for its use. Now its been reduced to use during a 15% proc deep in the frost tree and to a now obsolete raiding spec.
(I'm bias of course. I used the ffb spec until the late ToC days)
Mar 7th 2010 1:20AM First time post for this mage.
I find this argument a bit funny. To me, this is an argument between the serious raiders who are always the optimum spec, and the casual players.
Each has a different definition of "fun" in this game.
For instance, I refuse to be frost or arcane. (Heck, I PvP and raid fire or frostfire depending on how I feel that day.) But I have friends who can't stand not being the best at what they do and don't have much fun unless they are.
I guess my point is that there will probably always be a "best spec" numbers wise. Doubt that will ever change.
But that spec will not always be the "best" or even the most "fun" for every given player because, like it or not, everyone is quite different. (some fiery, some frosty, some frostfiery, and some arcane....y?"
lol. Have fun my fellow mages! Life is too short not to!
