Jan 16th 2012 10:08AM There used to be a quest where you summon an elemental that took place at the center of that rock formation. Now it's flooded over. But yes, it was by design. Does anyone remember the particulars of that quest? It's been ages since I did that one.
Jan 11th 2012 9:26AM I would suspect some sort of change; they recently made it possible to do more content across realms. Perhaps they want to make some changes to the system to facilitate friends across realms to play together, but they want to give it some test time before they have it go live. With the recent MMO competition, they are probably trying to add some polish while nobody is looking.
Dec 13th 2011 5:16PM Has anyone else noticed that Molten Core, a fantastic ability on the fourth tier of the Demonology talent tree, is useless when you hit tier 4 because you don't get immolate until level 64? I don't see where to put the points while leveling demonology without placing them in a variety of utility talents and doing a respec at 64. I played a warlock in Burning Crusade and it was my main through most of the Wrath cycle. Leveling a new one in Cataclysm feels like I'm playing the class that Blizzard forgot.
Jan 23rd 2011 3:24PM Sch in German makes a sound similar to the sh in English. Since it seems that Blizzard has tapped into many cultures in creating the huge list of names found in Azeroth, I think we'll be forced to muddle our way through with no definitive standard. Occasionally we are lucky enough to have a voice actor pronounce it in game or it is mentioned at Blizzcon, but a definitive pronunciation guide will likely remain a pipe dream.
I personally default to Czech pronunciations for most unfamiliar names I encounter in Azeroth; it works for me.
Jan 13th 2011 6:55PM I wanted to make a few comments on the Corla fight:
1- After one beam is off one of her adds, the beam moves to the next one, so you might be surprised at how fast the stacks build on that add (or the player standing in the beam to prevent the change). Make sure another player is available to jump in if someone's stacks get too high as the next add can turn unexpectedly quickly.
2- We were limited on our group's interrupts. For anyone who has tried tanking the adds, it is critical to interrupt the adds' sinister strike. I had an addon that announced Corla's fear (which we ignored) but I would sometimes react by habit, meaning my interrupt was on cooldown for the strike. If you are a creature of habit with a boss mod, you may want to suppress this interrupt notice.
3- If you are a tank and are solely responsible for interrupts, it helps to be expertise capped for the 87 mobs. On one attempt, I tried to shield slam the sinister strike only to have the add parry it. Yeah, that was a bad thing. Yes, that 1.25% will come around every now and again and stymie your efforts. A sinister strike with a hasted follow-up attack does a remarkable amount of damage.
