Oct 19th 2010 1:14PM I would assume this is going to get a bit more difficult, since the 25 man version was nearly impossible. All the 10-man groups breezed through it without difficulty, whereas the 25 man groups were either just barely or not making the enrage timer.
Sep 9th 2010 8:17PM its not actual jousting,.....you just fly into the mobs
The flying is a bit awkward since your hipporyphs can't fly normally over the lava in the firelands,....so you have to hit the button to flap their wings each time. Its actually a vehicle quest, and not at all as horrid as the jousting in the Argent Tournament
Sep 9th 2010 6:27PM The jousting quest in Hyjal is the one where you enter into the Firelands and fly around on a hippogryph, lancing mobs out of the sky.
It's a homage to the old-school arcade game 'Joust'
Sep 7th 2010 9:37AM I am in the beta, and doing it all mainly because this is the ample time to actually read and enjoy the lore/quests. I read everything in-depth now because as soon as it launches on live, I will be burning to 85 as fast as possible
Aug 28th 2010 9:34PM Currently, numbers-wise, Frostfire Bolt is the better main nuke for the Frost spec (check the mage thread on the Cataclysm forums and you see a massive discussion about the pros and cons of this being true). Thanks in part to the Frostfire Orb talent (increases all Frostfire damage) and you can subspec down to get Ignite from the fire tree.
Also Fingers of Frost also effects Frostfire Bolt, and for this reason 'Ghost Charges' are still very much alive with using FFB as the main nuke.
(complete side note: that baby must be keeping you so busy, as your last 2 columns have been decidely behind the curve on up to the date info)
Jul 15th 2010 12:41PM Find Treasure is just as useless as it was before, unless they make it good for Archaeology. With the new quest tracking features, everyone gets a big shiny arrow to take them to quest items.
As far as banned people being able to get into the beta, that is a definitely not a chance,.....some people who got into the beta have already had their access removed for being a troll on the beta-forums.
Jul 15th 2010 12:30PM Since I didn't see anyone mention it in the comments,....the other big Arcane Barrage change is that IT NO LONGER CONSUMES YOUR ARCANE BLAST STACKS
Jul 14th 2010 7:31PM Combustion works thusly;
When you pop it, all your DoTs on the target disappear and and the damage amounts of each of those DoTs is combined into the new Combustion DoT that is applied. You can still reapply all your other DoTs while its up.
So basically you get a new 10 second super-DoT on the target
Jul 12th 2010 10:53AM There is a whole questline in Hyjal that follows up to the events of the Stormrage novel. The game completely assumes you have read the book since it makes no mention at all of why things are as they are.
