Dec 20th 2009 6:23PM I started getting interested after watching the South Park episode, but it took a while for me to actually try it. Previously I'd played Flyff and Dream of Mirror Online, both Korean free-to-play MMOs. I quit Flyff after learning how much of a grindfest it was, and Domo had far too much griefing for my tastes. So I downloaded the trial and talked to some old college buddies about it. Apparently they'd been playing for some time. I rolled a horde on Eitrigg to be with one of them but found all the horde races too ugly. And I sure wasn't paying another $30 right then just to roll a blood elf. Been Ally ever since.
Sep 19th 2009 5:45PM Spark of Hope is also near BiS for the Arcane mage. Since the cost reduction is taken before any modifiers, it shaves 42/84/168/336 mana off of Arcane Blast. Factor in the +55 crit rating from glyphed Molten Armor, and you get a mighty nice trinket.
I can feel the healers firing up their torches now.
