Nov 24th 2011 9:30AM I can appreciate that it is frustrating to lose so much of your healing utility, but it's not like you all will be completely incapable of saving tanks with your puny flash heals just like you could before. The things that stand out to me in particular are the level 45 and 90 talents, all of which give you some healing utility for no DPS loss.
Each of the healers have tiers exclusively devoted to healing more effectively, which is some utility that only healers have (At least I think they do. I can't make heads or tails of what's going on with the druid talents.
I really like the MoP talents in theory. There is plenty of room to mess up the execution, though.
Nov 22nd 2011 10:49PM Huh, I guess they do Black Friday every year now. Blizzard games still stay at full price much longer than the average.
Nov 22nd 2011 9:47PM Prices on Blizzard games never go down. The prices of all of Blizzard's titles has, as far as I can tell, remained the same since the introduction of The Burning Crusade Battlechest. IN 2007! Compare that to the other great games that came out in 2007: Modern Warfare can be had for $20 new on steam. Portal and TF2 are FREE now.
Seriously, any strategy gamers should buy starcraft now if they haven't already. Did you see that mod store they were showing off in blizzcon? It looks sweet.
Nov 21st 2011 8:03PM didn't they say curses could soulburn for AOE?
Aug 21st 2011 10:28AM I'm in love with the look of the Asura Warrior from the trailer.
But the BEST reveal has to be Dr. Strange and Nemesis in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. (I'm not the only PC gamer who watches fighting games, right?)
Mar 31st 2010 7:13PM That was my first thought too.
*Chuckle, chuckle, Guffaw*
Mar 31st 2010 7:05PM Alright. Here is how I see things going down.
Eadric the Pure is running for his life. All of a sudden, an Ice wall appears before him. He hears the bone-chilling voice of the Lich King behind him.
"There IS NO ESCAPE!" he says... Or maybe it's just the ice wall that is chilling and the voice is ordinary. Or maybe the voice was so cold it made the Ice wall, but we have to move on. He begins summoning Vile undead beings attack Eadric. Eadric ignores them at first, concentrating on shattering the wall. Three solid hits shatters the thing, and he is off again.
But more walls appear before him, and all the while the Lich King is summoning more and more creatures. Eadric begins praying, and soon his whole body is engulfed in Holy Light. The ghouls are obliterated, the abominations batter at the hated light like it is a physical foe and eventually settle on butchering each other. The Val'kyr kind of stand there for four seconds, waiting to go back to shadow bolt spamming. Eadric takes the opportunity to shatter the second wall and sprint down to the third.
But still more dead appear at the Lich King's side, so Eadric does the last thing he can think of. With a shout of "HAMMER OF THE RIGHTEOUS", he throws a light-imbued hammer at the Lich King. The Lich King is KNOCKED BACK by the force of the hammer. The Lich King begins yelling at the Val'kyr for not dispelling Hammer of Justice. They say they cannot, and furthermore, since the Lich King created them, should know that. The Lich King goes AFK to bring up WoWHead to see if they are right. Eadric takes the opportunity to shatter the third wall. The Lich King returns, realizing the Witch Doctor is right, and promptly kills him. He wasn't very helpful anyway. Eadric is already at the Fourth wall when The Lich King gets his bearings and starts attacking. With one almighty throw, Eadric shatters the fourth wall. He runs to the edge, and realizes that there is no escape. He decides he wants to die fighting the Lich King, not running away. He runs forward, prepared to fight to the Death, when a gunship appears. It is the Argent Tournament Gunship, "Light's..... Undarkener. OF LIGHT!" They use their cannons to trigger an avalanche that creates a wall of rock between the gunship and The Lich King. With Eadric on the wrong side. The gunship promptly flies away.
"So, what am I going to do with you." Arthas says Eviley. "I KNOW. I will turn you into my Latest Death Knight... Eadric the IMPU.... Someone's made that joke already. Nevermind. How about.... EADRIC THE IMP! That's it!" Eadric stares down at his tiny, black, fiery body and weeps.
"ENOUGH! You serve me now, and what I want is for you to destroy DALARAN!"
Eadric the Imp goes on to buddy up with a powerful Warlock named Dominic Hobbes. They Raze Dalaran to the ground. They then Soulstone Archmage Pentarus. Then they kill him. He comes back to life and is promptly killed again. THen they camp his corpse. Pfft, who needs spell Lock to fight mages.
Jul 20th 2009 8:29PM ... Why does that Lock have a Water Elemental? The world has truly gone mad 0_0.
(Yes, I know it's supposed to be a VW).
May 23rd 2009 1:37PM If it's any consolation, epsilon, it will be more than one boss. They compared it to Ampitheatre of Anguish. I'm not imagining Violet Hold, with random bosses every day. I think it will be more along the lines of "fight the same 10 bosses each week, with waves of trash in between, in one small room". There is no reason to think it will be one boss.
May 23rd 2009 12:11PM Wurp? I might just be new here, but isn't it WRUP (What R you playing)?
