Jun 13th 2010 7:08AM I. Can't. Wait.
I recently leveled a Fire Mage and I am loving it. I use Fire for PvE and PvP and I will continue to do so come Cataclysm. It sounds like it's only going to get better and better.
Arcane just sounds like trouble with too much mana upkeep and Frost....well....meh.
Jun 12th 2010 11:24AM I didn't vote for it because it would take too long to farm, unless he gets really lucky. Yeah it would be fun to make him work for a pet, but the Disgusting Oozling is a little bit too much
Jun 10th 2010 8:58PM They should have every ranged weapon have different ranges, and have more variety of the weapons we get to choose from (depending how we want to play)
Shotguns - 0-15 yards, slow speed, very high damage, can hit 1-3 targets if all are within 3 yards of each other
Pistols - 0-25 yards, fast, low damage (dual wield)
Bows, rifles - 10 - 50 yards, medium speed, high damage
Crossbows - 5 - 40 yards, medium speed, medium damage
Sniper Rifle - 50 - 100 yards, very slow, very high damage
Maybe we could have 2 guns that we could easily switch between (with some sort of penalty, of course, like a 5 second no-shoot time).
Jun 10th 2010 8:25PM I don't see why we can't have them right now. We don't need two slots for them, just a different animation. Example:
We could have a ranged weapon called Revolvers. It does similar damage as a shotgun, bow, or crossbow. It is a similar speed. It has similar stats. The exception is that it is split between 2 shots, fired consecutively, in the same amount of time it takes to fire one shot of the other ranged weapons.
Firing 2 shots means it could crit more, but I think in the long run it would do similar overall damage and dps, especially on boss fights.
Jun 9th 2010 12:12PM I also thought the vocal performance was off a little. I think, at times, it didn't sync quite right with the beat of the music, and felt there should have been another word or two in some of the lines. Overall it was pretty good, though I don't care for rap too much. The added humor was a plus.
Jun 4th 2010 5:09PM I think Selfloathius should get the Westfall Chicken. He would enjoy going into enemy territory and clucking like a chicken. Or maybe he should get the Ghostly Skull in Dalaran.
Foxlight should get the parrot in Deadmines.
Annephora should get the raptor egg that spawns in Dustwallow Marsh
Robinemia should get the raptor egg that spawns in the Barrens, because she loves it so much there :)
Jun 3rd 2010 9:40PM "There are other differentiators, but what cinched my choice (spider) was that Cornered reduces all damage taken by 60% (which can easily be combined with Mend Pet and Cower to make this pet unfairly tough)"
I don't know if this matters anymore since most people tend to ignore pets now and go straight for the hunter. Maybe it's just my realm, but my pet almost never dies. Even without extra survivability talents.
I would still recommend going with a pvp-oriented pet over a wolf, but only because the special ability trumps the bonus AP the wolf gives, like you said.
May 28th 2010 8:26PM If you aren't having fun with the Mage, switch to Fire spec. What can be more fun than setting things on fire? Plus it has great AoE! Less survivability, but who cares? Just don't get hit!
