Apr 19th 2009 1:47PM Haha, it's hard for my guild as it is to even attempt a full clear atm. We only got Flame Leviathan down. We spent a full night wiping on XT and Ignis (I don't know why we stayed for 3 hrs. against him). We'll see next week =)
Apr 19th 2009 1:39PM I'm actually pretty happy they made Emalon this way and hope they don't nerf him.
First off, he's not a hard boss. It requires a little bit of gear and focus. If you know the fight mechanic, it's pretty much a given.
They made it so you have to EARN your gear rather than having a weekly run for quality gear. I hate rolling against PUGs who JUST hit 80 and can't even pull 1.5k dps against Archavon. It's not fair for the others in group to carry that player for gear. period.
Work on your gear, then focus on raids. Emalon obviously provides that message.
Apr 10th 2009 3:23PM Because Blizzard announced the release of 2 expansions per year. Remember that? If that was their goal, technically, they should be working on the new expansion already.
Apr 8th 2009 7:15AM Fortunately, there are hardcore raiders out there who's still appreciating what Blizzard's putting out there without aiming an elitist attitude towards casuals.
Apr 2nd 2009 9:33PM I'm willing to bet that with that much practice, they could write personal statements and keep their "judges" intrigued to say the least. Granted they're prob. out of college anyways.
Mar 27th 2009 12:50AM One thing that really frustrated me some months ago was when GC responded to all the shadow priest pvp QQs with "We don't understand why you guys are crying," when it was an obvious fact that we lacked any decent mobility against melee. Almost every single melee ended up as our hard counter, and i mean HARD. Yet it was such a shock that GC had absolutely no idea what we were talking about. We had to wait so long just for a decent fix to our PvP capability with 3.1, and it nearly took how long (and going)?
Mar 24th 2009 8:22PM Not the one to rag on here, but PvP itself got blown to bits as soon as the "new honor system" was even implemented. While I'm not saying to deprive casuals or any others of the gear through a grind-fest situation, the entire objective of each battlegrounds got nerfed to hell right after that. Remember those day long AVs where you'd summon Lok'Holar and others to crush your enemies? Then followed by the riders? Whatever happened to any of that? With the implementation of the honor system, people started demanding for easier honor gain; hence, leading to much shorter AVs and AFKers/bots.
So I wouldn't even blame arena. I'd start with the honor system itself.
