Feb 11th 2010 8:21AM Well, at least Blizzard is doing something.
Kilrogg-US has been having problems for almost 3 weeks now, on and off with things such as mail server lag, server lag spikes, random kicks and etc. So far none of these things have been fixed, after 3 updates, but I am hopeful.
I believe in you Blizzard, come'on!
Dec 17th 2009 8:46AM Making all of the gear/badges BoA would be a fairly bad idea. And here's why.
- People would gear their alts through playing only their mains. So the alts would be overgeared while the person having almost no experience with them. Which of course would be disastrous.
-People would begin to roll for loot in advance, disallowing those who need the loot NOW from getting it.
-Enchanting mats prices would skyrocket.
-Gearing is easy enough already and serves as a gateway to learn how to learn to play a certain class/spec. If you're not willing to take the time to do that, you may as well stick to one main. Reading online resources about a class won't teach you how to play it, as it is all about experience.
However, while badges and gear should remain where they are, blizzard should make a couple of changes.
-More BoA items to ease the leveling. Helmets, shields, etc. When you're leveling your 17th alt, having to pick out the best loot for him as well as running through those zones you've seen over and over again just does not cut it.
-BoA bags. Simple, nice and not too drastic of a change.
-BoA mounts. If Baron's mount drops for your mage, but you really want it on your paladin, you should be able to switch who gets it.
Dec 14th 2009 8:44AM While the general experience with the new PuG system has been generally nothing but good, there have been a few bad cases, that stood out.
On my tank:
We're about to do Halls of Reflection. We get in, the healer gets his ilvl 251 quest done and bails. A lot of people, when they get the gear they want, bail nowadays. It's both disheartening and annoying. Pugging heroics midway is always not fun.
On my healer:
Well, Halls of Reflection again, but this time I'm healing. The tank's defense is at 420(Death Knight), the highest dps output of the group is around 1k. The mage is doing 800dps. Essentially, it was a freight train to hell.
Aug 4th 2009 3:42PM Maybe this change will cut down the GM requests and we'll be able to talk to the GM's for once. Who knows?
