Sep 11th 2011 7:50PM I have a 74 rogue who was 70 when wotlk released. He has something like 100000 kills. I would guess 80% of them were pre-burning crusade. That means a TON of southshore/tarren mill/crossroads world pvp.
Back then, we pvp'd for fun, not hk's, honor points, or experience. You gained nothing from killing the opposing faction except an adrenaline rush and personal glory. That's when pvp was pure, enjoyable, and most satisfying.
The only rule was: hurry up and run back to the battle!
Sep 3rd 2011 6:05PM I play smf fury with about 3700 resil, and its exactly as described in the article....kill asap or die. One thing is certain, if you play with a reliable pocket healer as fury, to dispel snares and keep you healed, you will easily be an unstoppable killing machine. If you don't get heals, or try to solo a mage, you'll get frustrated easily, and feel completely useless.
Prot on the other hand has much more control and mobility, but the damage is a joke, unless you have vigilance stacked and get good support from teammates. It has definitely lost a lot of control against casters, because of the reflect nerf, which absolutely sucks. I used to eat any caster alive as protection...not so much anymore.
May 23rd 2011 9:08AM I've played since day one, off and on. I missed the entire wotlk expansion, came back 2 months before cata. The simple answer; wow is the best mmo on the market, and will most likely be the greatest mmo of all time. I played it through BC, raided, leveled alts, till I was so sick of it I thought i'd quit for good. A year off then back in only to discover how rich the world is. Surprisingly, I am having more fun now than I thought possible. It's just a great, great game with endless options and things to do.
May 10th 2011 11:53AM Yay this would be sweeeeet!
May 5th 2011 8:05AM Any word on epic gems or jewelcrafting stuff?? Didn't see any scanning wowhead. :(
Mar 31st 2011 7:29AM I want the original orange bloodfang repaint armor.
Mar 23rd 2011 10:20AM JC, cooking, fishing, TB, and most days I get an hour or so mining run in Uldum. Got a pretty unique path I have been taking and I score about 7 to10 stacks of ore in 45 min to an hour.
Then I check the AH and sell profitable gems, which normally get undercut if they don't sell in a few hours.
Got a 84 tank, so I'll soon have to fit both her and my shammy's dailies in somehow, as well as arena and pvp.
Mar 17th 2011 10:05PM I just configured my power auras for every totem I use last night.
They show up with a text aura in a nice row where I can see it on the side of my screen. They each have a timer as well. I set up an additional aura to show a glowy texture around me whenever stoneclaw shield is up. Very awesome addon. Takes a bit of messing with to get how you want it, but its worth it in the end.
I also use an aura for riptide's CD and things like blood fury and procs like tidal waves and heartsong enchant, and in enhancement, I have a 5 stack searing totem debuff that pops directly above the maelstrom alert. I love it.
Mar 15th 2011 8:32AM I played a NE rogue til the end of BC full time main. Quit and returned just before the shattering and couldn't get into the rogue, so I picked up my shammy, hit 85, and am enjoying it greatly. My old main is now basically retired at 74 and I have an alt warrior at 84.
