Sep 1st 2010 9:44PM I agree wholeheartedly. You don't drop a bomb like that and not say WHY. That's just rude.
And as my boyfriend would say, it's a prime example of how they're pretty much just shitting on the community.
Sigh... as the months go by, I am starting to look forward to this expansion less and less.
Jul 7th 2010 1:35PM alright... I'm feeling a little ambiguous towards this.
on one hand, i'm happy that all the "necessary" passive crap is just going to be given to us, and that choosing a spec will actually kinda mean something. kinda. in concept, i think that's a good idea.
just... not sure about the execution.
i mean, what was the point of taking all that stuff out and reducing the trees to 31 points if they weren't going to be adding anything to it? it kinda just sounds like laziness to me, which is a little depressing, tbh. the way that have it now ALSO doesn't do anything for customization. you're still going to be stuck in cookie-cutter specs, there's just less stuff to be putting points in. whoopdiedoo.
i would have liked to have seen this happen with us staying at 41 or even getting bumped up to 51 points. that would have given us a lot of control over our own specs rather than just being told "if your spec doesn't look like this, then you FAIL."
idk. in the end, i feel like this changed nothing (just made low leveling a little more fun) and just reflects how badly blizz is dropping the ball this expansion. :/ sadface.
Jun 27th 2010 12:32AM the dwarves from the hinterlands (the ones who live at aerie peak) are actually incredibly fond of elves; more the high elves, though. according to what i've read they have a great respect for one another. in fact, Vereesa Windrunner used to get hit on by Falstad Wildhammer quite often. XD Lol, "My Elven lady..." lmao...
so it's obviously not an "all dwarves hate all elves" thing.
night elves as a general rule are creepy xenophobes tho... lol.
Jun 18th 2010 10:59AM actually, "Pulverize" looks like it works almost exactly like "Obliterate," just based on wording alone.
my guess would be that it actually consumes all of your "Lacerate" stacks. i would also imagine that they'll probably have a glyph that will allow you to keep your stacks.
Jun 14th 2010 12:46AM @Devilsei:
tbh, you could probably read the narrative on wowwiki. that's what i always did whenever i was forced to miss out on something in game. :/
yeah, it's far more satisfying to see it actually happening in game, but... you're not really going to miss any info.
just speaking as a fellow lore buff...
Jun 14th 2010 12:29AM I feel your pain on the glyph changes. However, I think that between many people leveling alts and the like, as well as the new "medium" glyphs, which are for "fun/cosmetic" purposes... I think our best bet might even be to simply make them on commission, rather than just making them and putting them up on AH for a few copper, ya know? And it could also have some benefits on a guild level as well. I'm sure that most people, after reading these changes, are already dropping inscription and leveling up other professions. Therefore, I'd like to think that the drop in supply would be proportional to the drop in demand, and the potential profits will stay roughly the same.
My suggestion would be to keep it for the first part of cataclysm, when everyone's going to be clamoring for new things and profits will be great, and see how the market shifts from there.
But that's just my two cents.
Jun 8th 2010 11:08PM This of course due to the first time my guild ever got close to killing Vezax back in the day... and I singlehandedly wiped the raid by having a panicked moment and trying to "help" the last remaining DPS by meleeing the boss... and at 150,000 he put the debuff on me.
We pretty much killed him twice before I finally realized wtf was going on and moved. And then we wiped. Still at 150,000.
Yep. Fear my leet TreePS. Fear it now!
Jun 1st 2010 12:49AM /cheer
and @Jabbaprime: YES. Far too many people are relying on gearscore as a measure of skill anymore...
I'm a big fan of using addons that make your overall playing experience smoother, like UI frames, bartender, and recount. also sexy maps. for aesthetic purposes. :)
but I can't quite bring myself to even consider AVR or GearScore as must-have addons. or really addons at all. i'd love if they were both nuked off the face of the earth.
re: AVR, if you have to use it... stop playing WoW. seriously. the rest of us have been part of the "Don't Stand in That" Olympics since vanilla. it's not hard to do, you just have to use your eyes, and subsequently, your brain. common sense. fire burns. kthxbai.
re: GearScore, i've seen people with a 3k GS beat the everliving christ out of ppl with 5k GS on charts. consistently. problem exists behind keyboard, not on pixels.
blizz talks a lot about bring the player, not the class... well what about bringing the player and not the gearscore?
for those of us who don't have the time to spend raiding constantly... it'd be really nice to get into a pug for a reg ToC10 without having to have a 5.5k gearscore. -_-
May 19th 2010 3:06PM agreed. although, i'll have to admit, it's going to make it much more challenging, which is something i really need right now. resto druid in wrath as it stands right now is total snoresville.
rinse, repeat. it'll be nice to actually have to use innervate on myself again. XD
but maybe i'm crazy, lol.
