Jan 22nd 2009 8:20PM Quality article Matthew :)
Informative and well-written.
However, you said, "you've probably heard enough about enhancement from me for a while" . . . and we haven't talked about enhancement for the past two weeks and that one was just about the new stormstrike icon.
I'm not QQing just wanted to correct you :P
Moving on, bring on the resto talks! I've been healing a bunch lately and would like to hear what you have to say about the tree.
Jan 8th 2009 7:38PM My Tauren Shaman would definitely go w/
"May the Earth Mother grant me strength to fulfill my vengeance, Bronzebeard must die."
This is because in my RP his clan (extended family) was butchered by dwarven excavators and he's out for revenge.

If this is true you just made my day :)
Happy Birthday Matthew (sorry I'm a little late) :)
I love your articles, so thanks a lot and keep up the good work!

The only shamans getting serious buffs in this patch are ele; enhance is getting a nerf.
Quote: "Mental Quickness: Reduced the mana cost of instant cast Shaman spells by 2/4/6% and increases spell power by an amount equal to 23/46/70% of your agility."
This is a serious nerf for many enhance shamans as the old mental quickness increased spell power by 10/20/30 % of your total AP, so, unless you have a TON of agility you're losing a very large amount of spell power.

I mean come on Blizz! Loken is # 1! Completely preposterous!
It should obviously go like this:
3) Chuck Norris
1) High Overlord Saurfang
.5) Mrs. Saurfang (can kick the crap out of Mr. Saurfang but nobody else)
giraffes are zebras after being hit by Saurfang's uppercut

Cold weather is only fun BEFORE the holidays are over.

@ 1 & 2
you guys type to fast! This was going to be my first first :P
Nov 24th 2008 5:04PM Well . . not a bad idea but it's kinda like that Aesop's Fable about the mice putting a bell on the cat's neck. If they could do it, it would be great, but how will Blizzard do it?
I mean in just basic programming it's still difficult to make if then statements. Imagine how hard it would be to do this.
Nov 11th 2008 2:35PM *sigh* Why Thrall? Why?
On the brighter side, as a lore nerd myself, I gotta say that I doubt this fight was more than a test for several reasons.
1.) This fight seems very similar to when Thrall dueled Orgrim Doomhammer before Thrall freed all the clans. Sure, Thrall did win that duel, but probably only because Doomhammer was testing him. Doomhammer was a master of combat (kinda like Thrall now), killed Anduin Lothar (head of the Alliance in the 2nd war) in single combat, and would have wtfpwned some nooblet shammie.
2.) Thrall definitely didn't wear his armor. That looked like lvl 20 shaman greens. Thrall has Doomhammer's black plate armour.
3.) Garrosh SUCKS!!!! He's a dang noob who did nothing but whine for the whole Burning Crusade. Then he finally sucks it up and now he thinks he's the bee's knees or something. Thrall, Saurfang, and Hogger would definitely wtfpwn him. :)
Nov 10th 2008 10:54PM I'm just wondering but how the #$%* did Hellscream win?!?! I mean Thrall beat GROM (who is way cooler than Garrosh) when Grom was demon empowered. I doubt he would lose to some upstart pup who did nothing but whine in Nagrand for the whole damn Burning Crusade.
