Mar 9th 2007 12:59PM Okay, rant time, I hope I don't go too long.
First of all, Hitman (#22), mana efficient heals does not neccessarily mean effective heals. So thus, paladins are not the best healers in the game. We have no group heals and no heal over times and that hurts. As for paladin DPS, it will NEVER come close to the DPS of a true DPS class. I ran shadow lab with a ret pally and an equally geared mage and hunter yesterday. The mage did 39% of the DPS, the hunter did 33% and the paladin did 18%. Yeah, that DPS suure is sick from that paladin.
In essense just as a warrior is a tank and a DPSer, a paladin is a tank and a healer. The end. Why can't the paladins tanking be as good as the warrior's? The paladin can't DPS and the warrior can't heal, so that seems pretty fair.
Feb 7th 2007 5:59PM Finnicks, you're wrong.
100% Normal Speed + 100% Epic bonus = 200%
200% Speed + 4% Spurs bonus = 204%
204% + 3% Carrot bonus = 207%
207% + 2% Enchant bonus = 209%
Is how it is calculated. It is just a straight percent addition, not multiplied then added.
200% Speed + 20% Crusader Aura = 220% not 240%.
Because epic mounts go 380% iirc, so with the pally aura they'll go 400%, not 456%

Nov 6th 2006 4:56PM GRAHHHHHHH nothing bothers me more than casuals saying "Give us soloable dungeon content." THEY GIVE YOU SOLOABLE CONTENT! IT'S CALLED QUESTS IN ZONES! Dear god, I don't want to have instances lower than 5-man, it'd just get rediculous. Just do quests.

Jul 21st 2006 2:21PM Kaylos, you do not seem to understand, the paladins are overpowered for their BUFFS, not their survivability/healing. They can cast buffs BEFORE the battle instead of shamans having to cast during the battle. They can buff groups outside their own, and shamans can only buff their OWN group and only when they are in RANGE of the totem.
And Ahms, if there was not some sort of balance put in, we would see the end of the Horde. Take a look at the Naxxramus progression. The Alliance vs Horde progression is daunting. Alliance WAY outnumbers Horde in the advancements. Plus, this now allows Shamans and Paladins to explore different builds. We will now have a chance to see more elemental shamans instead of all restoration ones. This change opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
