Insider Trader: Profession-specific buffs part 2 {WoW}

Jun 12th 2009 4:28PM So Amanda, I pointed this out on your "Insider Trading" Jewelcrafting post on May 22 and I used the same the example of Spellpower. You bascially took my comment and added a few things but the same premise. Informative, yes, new no. Maybe I deserve a little credit for this. Sorry for the wall of text but here is my comment and the link to the article

This is rediculous!!!
LW's get best in slot liners better than enchants.
Skinners get extra crit, ( Don't know about you but I have seen an increase in Mage skinners since Wrath), Smith's get 2 extra "prismatic" gem slots.
Tailors get the best cloak enchants/liners.
Alchemists get double the flask time.
Inscriptionists get the best shoulder enchants.
Enchanters get to add a small amount of a stat to their rings.
Miners get Extra stamina.
JC's get prismatic Gems.
Engineers get an epic helm and 2 mounts, a gun and I am not sure if anything else.
Herbalists get Lifbloom.

If we look at all of these they all offer soemthing that is "best in slot" for PvE raiding except Engineering & Herbalism. Engineers get nice toys for PvP atleast but atleast herbalists can make a decent buck gathering for 2 professions.

Sure the JC gems are better than normal reagular gems....it is no different than any other of these Professions when you sit down and think about it. Because they offer set bonuses which for the mast is like +4sp, +4int, +4 they are by no means OP. The all have a special little niche/perk for having that profession.

Let's use Caster Stats for a compare. Because I can get 39 more SP out of 3 gems than a non JC can that makes it OP? Take the Enchanting they get +19sp to a ring. I got an extra 39 sp from my gems, they got an extra 38 sp to their rings. A Blacksmith got an additional 38 sp from the 2 extra sockets they get. I am not 100% sure the stats on the Incribed shoulders, or tailoring cloak enchants or fur linings but you get my point. I got a whopping 1....that is right 1 more SP from 3 gems that a bs got from 2 and an enchanter got from 2 enchants for them only.

That doesn't look OP to me......Grass is always Greener on the other side. This is done from the amount of QQ heard all over about JC being op and a must have. The only reason I switched in BC was because my shaman was a tailor and was worthless for him and there was some decent JC only gem cuts and it was a new profession. This is definitely uncalled for and I think I pretty much proved it.

May 26th 2009 9:11AM How about you read above. Where did I say Double Flask was on par???? SRSLY learn to read. I said they atleast had something useful and stated what every profession got related to PvE/PvP. No where did I make any example about double flask times. However it is nice and saves some cash it isn't the best perk but a pretty nice one. Also, socket bonuses like I said before aren't that great...the meta is nice but really it calls for what a 3 gem combo do activate it?

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Warrior DPS Blues {WoW}

May 14th 2009 3:54PM Warriors are not fine & are the bottom of the Hybrid list. Blizzard took a spec (Fury) and nerfed it down while adding the smallest buff , after a nerf to a spec (arms) that was the performing dps spec in the game. Now both dps specs are underperforming compared every other "hybrid".

Take hunter specs for example. Most do relatively close dps to each other with Surv being the best. Blizz nerfed BM & buffed Surv only to bring them both closer together in overall dps. I know not a hybrid class but you see the spec pov.

How about druids??? both specs are excellent dps with great heals and a good tank. Paladins are great at all 3 things they do. DK's great mitigation & CD tanks and Great DPS. Warrior tanks are good (still mad I have to talent & glyph to get CD's the same as baseline DK abilities) dps not so great.

They nerfed warrior dps and said "Hey we now fixed your gear 4 years later to be better" "Oh btw all the gear you have now is garbage and hopefully we itemized it right"

How about Arp? A "gimmick" if you ask me. Nerf the class and see if they get all the new gear & regem maybe they can do quality dps again. How would the casters like it if the "Boosted" the effects of spell penetration and made it a "must have stat" to be competitive? I am pretty sure there would be some uproar.

Call it what you want but Warriors got nerfed down because we are a "hybrid" class while Druids/Paladins/DKs/Shamans (not as much as the others) still compete/beat pure dps classes

Give Bloodlust to Rogues {WoW}

May 6th 2009 9:05AM Rogues should not get Bloodlust period!

Give all rogues the Draenai 1% to hit racial buff and change theirs to something else. That racial is the most OP racial in the game and to be one faction only is absurd! Atleast it will soften the massive hit rating rogues have to deal while also putting both factions on an even playing field.

In-game fixes for Monday May 4th {WoW}

Testify, soul brother.

(Is this Bone? Sounds like your describing my guild.)

If you are in the "Order" then no that wasn't me. I think we are doing fairly well in Ulduar since we killed all the bosses pre-nerf so far except for the Hard mode nerf.

I know I am having fun in ulduar. The only stress I have is when people don't show up or logg off cause they didn't get into the 10 man group right away.

Having 15+ dedicated raiders is a blessing and a curse sometimes. Have a great 10 man setup and a good rotation for filling if people have something going on. The stress factors when people who come and go as they please when it come to raids want to come to Ulduar because we figured out bosses and and cleared our way to the tier gear. Now people wanna come outta the woodwork.

40 mans all over again when it comes to progression and attendance. Even with 25 man or 10 man raids the attitudes can remain the same. You do the work and we will come reap the rewards. Sorry bud but Loot Council doesn't look to kindly upon that. That is if you even get an invite to go the raid. Which probably won't happen since your attendance is spotty at best along with your gear & your play

Around Azeroth: The Horde crosses the Delaware {WoW}

Apr 30th 2009 10:51AM This is supposed to be a a "News, Analysis and Opinion from inside the World of Warcraft" site. Quit filling it up with junk. All these pictures posts, two bosses enter posts, 99% of WOW rookie are wasted time & material. They don't follow the mantra the site has posted a the top of the page. Plus we don't need three different people posting stuff about noblegarden (next week it will be childrens week) right after one another. Where is all the analysis at? I understand Noblegarden is "news" but only to a certain extent. Same goes with patch notes posts or the "server still down" updates every 30 mins. Is there really a need to post that non-stop? Then the "Que" either people aren't asking you questions or you pick the easiest / stupidest ones 90% of the time to answer so you can skate by with an absolutely useless article. Soem of the class columns are great and others are lacking. The both follow the mantra of Opinion mainly with some analysis. These class columns should have an opinion column & an analysis column. The majority of the time you are only getting analysis from a few writers with mainly opinion. If the writer doesn't play/like certains specs then writers who do should be covering the analysis of them. Not some half assed opinion about soemthing they know little to nothing about and don't like to do anyway so they don't care. Also, quit with these "Gearing X part VI" columns for Naxx or with Naxx gear. Wrath has been out for 5+ months and there hasn't been any new gear added to Naxx or Northrend since then. Ulduar coverage has been lacking and with dual specs more analysis for more specs should be covered more. I know this a long rant but this site seems to get worse & worse each week. Unfortunately it is the only site I can view at work WOW related mainly (with blogspot the exception) and every day it lets me down. I don't even RP and atleast those "So you wanna a X X" articles are what they are supposed to be. Guildwatch & Officers Quarters are pretty good for you expect from them. Flame if you want but the quality of this site as a whole needs to improve!
