Jan 18th 2011 4:13PM I think i worded my weapon macro comment incorrectly. No it is not hard to do, but it goes against (i think) Blizzard's design philosphy. There is no way they want players swapping in a different weapon before using mana tide and then swapping their "real" weapon back in. Another change seems inevitable to Mana Tide Totem was what i meant.
Jan 18th 2011 3:01PM I'm afraid that my raid leader is going to ask me to start stacking spirit ad nauseum. Effectivly killing my throughput for the sake of being everyone's mana battery. Do you think that this will inevitably happen? And if it does, doesn't that mean that blizzard will be forced to change mana tide's effect again?
Also, i read somewhere that shaman will start weapon swapping right before using mana tide. Essentially carrying around a giant staff with loads of spirit and a +spirit enchant and macroing it in, which sounds like a chore.
Needless to say i hate these current changes. I agree it wasnt right before, but i can almost garuantee that mana tide will be changing next patch and law abiding resto shamans everywhere will suffer in the meantime.
Sep 8th 2010 5:30PM Does anyone know if it's worth it, during an mob heavy boss fight to momentarily stop nuking the boss and spam SWP on trash mobs. Will this help you unload some gigantic MB's? Is it a fool's errand, or is it just too soon to tell?
I rather like the concept as well and if Blizz makes it worthwhile for me to go out of my way to manage them then it becomes pretty cool, but as it is we use mind blast all the time anyway so it basically becomes a glorified version of crit.
Jul 7th 2010 1:35PM I've been leveling a resto shaman through the dungeon finder and it sucks terribly. He's lvl 38 and has TWO healing spells, TWO! thirty eight levels of lesser healing wave is incredibly boring. I am glad Blizzard is at least trying to change that. It might not work at first but they'll tweak it and it will eventually. I welcome these changes.
Jun 9th 2010 12:37PM Are there any special trinkets and/or weapons I should consider? Has anyone tried using the abracadaver guardian? What about professions? Jewelcrafting can make statues, Do test dummies work? Can't wait to try this.
Jun 7th 2010 3:11PM I was doing battle for the undercity alliance side when I ran into an unamed blood elf rogue looking npc. Who is this?
Jan 13th 2010 6:08PM I will personally break up my guild and ninja its bank if it gets the drama section back.
