May 23rd 2008 8:41AM with all these complaints about mana I wonder how many people have ever raided with a ret paladin.
Its infinite mana for BM with hawk up.
Its near infinite mana for Marks with hawk up. Maybe 1 pot per fight at worst.
So it seems like its either everything or nothing. In bgs im almost constantly oom running viper, in raids im constantly at 90% or higher mana.
I think hunters are on the edge as far as mana use / cost goes. Changing it a little bit one way or the other would have very drastic effects as it is currently possible to have infinite mana in a party setting with appropriate buffs.
The arrow thing, just about every class has raid consumables. Back in the MC days if you spent 1g per stack on arrows you were still spending less money than priests did on candles. What you spend in arrows soloing you make up for in lack of repairs from taking damage.
May 5th 2008 2:39PM The more damning thing is. How does someone that sucks so much get that much good gear. Being friends with a gm makes the whole situation reak of corruption, even if it is not intentional.
"Oh ya that guy sucks but hes friends with the GM so he has full t6"
Ive seen quite a few GM + right hand man type situations like this. The GMs best friend is terrible, an officer, and has the best gear.
Apr 29th 2008 7:27AM Pulling aggro in MM on an alt is quite a bit harder than pulling aggro on a t5 or t6 main.
Luckily when farming mobs they usually die after the second or third shot leaving a sparkling corpse at my feet.
But still, its fairly ridiculous to try and keep aggro on the pet. Sometimes autoshot is too much.
Feb 19th 2008 9:49AM "Since officers typically have some of the best-geared characters in the guild"
HA, ya right. The officers are the ones that do more with less gear, so the officers are often the last people geared up, and the only ones that care more about progress than gear.
Feb 13th 2008 8:39AM Your looking at it from a hardcore perspective. You don't need to do every single daily every day in order to be successful. There is a large selection of dailies available and you can easily do a few a day depending on your mood.
I do about 3-4 bg dailies per week, a few bombing runs and maybe a heroic. Sometimes I do the cooking quest if im feeling frisky, and if i need leather ill do some of the nethermine quests.
Some of the quests are more of a weekly than a daily.
The advantage is that one doesn't have to follow a static series of quests to make it to the end. So if you don't feel like doing a quest you don't have to do it in order to progress.
Feb 6th 2008 9:14AM its easy to get the clipboard contents from code.
Nov 16th 2007 8:53AM It was the main reason to have hunter tanks. Especially on something like kael.
Normal gear, FD Full resists, FD normal gear.
Oct 1st 2007 8:47AM There are 2+ games in WoW.
1) Levelling up.
2) Gearing up for Farming/Raiding/Dungeon Running
3) Gearing up for PVP.
4) Pvp twinking
Imo the only item from that list that doesn't really change based on class is number 1.
You cant really heal or tank a monster to death, so its basically the same thing for every class.
It was fun the first time alliance side, the first 20 levels were fun horde side, after that its all the same.
Playing a different role in 5 mans is extremely fun though. If I could buy levels with in game gold I definitely would.
