Feb 5th 2009 5:25PM I don't even know what to say... I'm at a loss for words...
1. Healers have had their gear/stats homogenized so that they have to roll against DPS classes.
2. Raids will be tuned for "Replenishment", which will be provided by DPS classes/specs (shadow priest, ret pally, survival hunter, and destro 'lock)
2. And now this, "we have become concerned that mana regeneration is currently too powerful, especially for HEALERS."
To further quote Bornakk, "running out of mana should be a very real risk for sloppy playing or attempting content that you aren’t yet ready for." When DPS runs out of mana, it just slows down the kill. When healers run out of mana, people die and wipes occur.
Right now, for most fights the only thing DPS has to worry about is "Stay out of the ____!" And they want to make healing harder??? They've already got 10/25 things to worry about.
Jan 20th 2009 10:37AM The fact that CCP is at the helm gives me hope that this could be a good MMO. With the success of EVE it shows that they're creative enough to make a non-cookiecutter MMO and make it work. Something fresh and creative is always good for the MMO market.
I plan on camping the CCP site for the beta sign up.

You knew it was coming...

Dec 18th 2008 8:05AM Is there some way to just "sign-in" at the beginning to be able to edit profiles and such?
Dec 11th 2008 4:41PM A lot of people have made valid points (for and against) here in the comments section. But unless the FCC regularly reads WoWInsider, most of this discussion is essentially "barking at the moon". I don't want to sound like I'm standing on a soap box, but rather than comment here those that feel strongly on the subject should contact the FCC. In fact,
contact Tate herself. This is not to encourage spamming hate mail, but to point out a more productive course of action.
You'd think with 11 million accounts Blizzard could afford some lobbyists... :)
