Mar 2nd 2011 11:05AM @ bearbehind - I agree the flavour is being lost and I like your idea of a limited time rez (especially if the player retained their abilities, but looked like a ghoul), more so than a full on proper druid b-rez.
Rez'ing ourselves, however, is probably too close to the original rez that was taken away from us when DK's first hit the servers for Blizz to consider. Back then, if you died, you came back as a ghoul for 45 secs - great fun, but made it extremely OP in PvP...
Feb 23rd 2011 6:22AM Warrior's can glyph intimidating shout to cc mobs in place for 8 secs already - simply adjust that to last longer... Or glyph the Heroic Throw as suggested by omedon666 should be simple enough (using the sap animation?)
Glyphed Strangulate would be the easiest fix - either from a choking perspective - or to make the target vomit from nasty disease infection (animations also already in game)
Kitties could simply be giving a rogue like sap
All of which could be locked to PvE only to maintain balance
Jan 24th 2011 12:05PM When I got it, kingslayer was top, when I got it on my third character in first and only run not so much.
Mountain of mounts was, and still is, the daddy for me...
Jan 5th 2011 6:09AM He says 6 adds per VIAL "phase"... there are 3 vial "phases" in Phase 1 (red, blue, and green)...
Dec 8th 2010 11:40AM 5 of us from our guild did the 24 hour grind fest - no sleep, 2 x 15 minute breaks, constant questing and instance runs. Only 2 of us made it in the 24 hour target window, 3 of us crashed at about 50% through 84... 80-85 in 24 hours is epic enough to be worthy of a feat of strength.
We were thinking it was going to be over and done with quickly while we were blasting through lvls 80, 81 and 82... but then you hit the soup that is the combined 14 million XP required for levels 83 and 84 and believe me it slows you down
To answer the "has cata got legs" question though.
Yes, our server first cam up in under 20 hours - but I would say those of us that hit 85 yesterday were less than 1% of the player base - and there was a big gap back into the the hordes on 81/82.
What I did see as I rushed through the zones were some very fun quests and a lot of content I am going to be spending much more time on with my alts when I have recovered...
I think Cata has plenty of legs in it yet...

They can rez at a GY anyway :)
Oct 20th 2010 4:49AM @jawn - forget my comment re: gemming & haste - just re-read your post about frost, but in my head was still in the UH reply for Eberron! D'oh...
Oct 20th 2010 4:45AM Completely agree - I have been playing UH since the patch and it is very like Blood used to be. Was dreading the switch over and the "pet" management, but have found it loads of fun, I am quite surprised and happy.
@jawn - you shouldn't be gemming Haste. You should be gemming for Strength, and reforging for Haste (if you are UH)...
Oct 20th 2010 4:41AM If you are dual wielding, you want Rune of the Fallen Crusader on your MH... If you can then manage it you want to do the following with your OH:
Get 2 OH weapons, keep one if your bag.
Single Target: Use the OH weapon with Razorice on it
Multiple Targets: Use the OH weapon with Cinderglazier on it
If you are 2H frost - stick with Fallen Crusader.

Unless some of us resist we will be swamped by hairy dogs and smelly goblins...
