May 10th 2010 10:00AM I'd like to see pallies have the ability to shield, or bubble players a little more often. In my mind it would need to be something totally different than what a disc priest does, and of course, it wouldn't just be our current bubbles only more often as that would be OP. But I see the paladin as a protector of the innocent (or the not-so-innocent if it's a spellcaster) -- so we should have a spell in our arsenal that we can toss out to mitigate damage to people. Maybe like a bubble that we cast that enshrouds us and a small area and when big AOE hits are coming we can pop that and people (other healers and casters) can jump behind to get the benefit of. A castable Devotion Aura that works only on spells perhaps? Just spitballing here.
OR even something like an emplaced shield that blocks damage in a LOS kind of way, but also makes it impossible to cast because of LOS issues. Like a Pillar of Light to stand behind that can be put anywhere.
Ok enough for now.

I'm really enjoying the game, they do need to do something about the social aspect, I've teamed up a few times, but you really don't need to. Haven't really found a supergroup either, not sure I'm ready for that kind of commitment with 5 level 80s in Wow and all of which are trying to raid in ICC.
Mar 31st 2010 10:51AM Seems to me that with the newest, free expansion for Champions Online that a lot of new people are starting to play it.
As someone who comes from WoW I really appreciate the ability to really own my characters, customization is awesome and ongoing.
Mar 2nd 2010 3:53PM I am often moving around from computer to computer so I have WoW installed on a nice speedy external hard drive, and just jump it from machine to machine -- I DO use a firewire 800 connection too. Works wonderfully.
Feb 25th 2010 3:42PM I have tried and tried to make all my movements by mouse, but I just can't do it. I use the mouse quite often when I'm ONLY moving, but once I need to fight (PVP or PVE) both hands are firmly on the keyboard. Left hand is controlling movement with the WASD keys (Q & E are my uber faves for strafing) and my right hand controls all my keybound spells on that half of the keyboard. I also have my repeating key presses sped up so I can do an insane some insane spins without mashing the keys or waiting for the repeat to kick in.
I guess the biggest problem I have is when I need to move, target something way over there (using the mouse) and want to fire off a spell at the same time, but it seems that most people would have some slight issues with that.
P.S. I use a roller ball mouse with only 2 buttons plus the scroll wheel in the center.
Ideally I would use both hands for all movement and then some kind of speech recognition to select and fire spells (but that would leave me with a hoarse voice I bet & vent would be impossible) -- or mind control wouldn't be bad, hehe.
Feb 9th 2010 9:07AM There are many things that would be nice, having this book delivered to my door for nothing is one of those things.
Jan 31st 2010 5:46PM You mention that Flash of Light builds are viable, but then when it comes to glyphs you totally ignore the build really.
Glyph of Flash of Light to replace GoHL.
Glyph of Seal of Light to replace GoSoW.
Then stacking on the spellpower, as you mentioned and the crit.
In my opinion anyways.
Jan 19th 2010 9:52AM When a tank is in a hurry, and I'm on my resto druid, that's fine, I'm down with that. But when the dps isn't as geared as T9 and so they take a little more healing than usual, then my mana bar tends to suffer a bit, even with Innervate (especially if a dps is suffering mana issues and I help them out a bit). So every once in a little while I need to sit and drink up.
When the healer says, "Mana" you should have heard that. You should not have rushed into the next room and pulled another group.
Dying is not going to help move the group forward faster.
I tank as well on my paladin and I gotta say, before I pull anything I look at 3 things. 1) My health pool. 2) Healers mana pool 3) Healers range from me. If any of those things is not ideal I'll wait a few. If none of those changes I'll heal myself, and do a /readycheck.
It's amazing how quickly things move when everyone is on the same page and is ready to go.
An AFK healer is no healer at all.
Dec 18th 2009 8:37AM I use the soccer analogy all the time. These are my teammates, we've scheduled an event, everyone else is going to be there, and they are counting on me to also be there. If I can't for any number of reasons, I will give them the most lead time I can so they can replace me. But even though it's just a game, these are my friends. It still has a level of importance.
