Breakfast Topic: I want to sing {WoW}

May 5th 2010 8:40AM I'm currently leveling up a Prot Warrior to do just that! I've raising a a Ranged DPS (Shadow Priest), Melee DPS (Enhance Shaman), and Healer (Disc Priest and Resto Shaman) so tanking is the only thing I haven't tackled. I'll tell you though, tanking Keri in Normal Nexus (I'm level 73) last night was scary as shit. I'm not used to having a dragon breathe in my face and look at me for more than like 5 seconds.

Know Your Lore TFH Edition: Elune is a naaru, page 3 {WoW}

May 2nd 2010 2:21PM I made this comment earlier in this thread but it applies here as well. What you need to do is separate game mechanics from lore. Trolls and Undead priests, according to lore, should all be Shadow Priests. Trolls gaining this power from the dark Loa and Voodoo that they worship and Undead because channeling the power of the Light would consume the very essence of undeath that hold their bodies together, destroying them. In the Original WoW Alpha/Beta Undead were harmed by "Holy" spells, including ones meant to heal. This was changed in order to make Undead Warrior tanks viable. Sure it doesn't make sense in the lore but in order for the game to be balanced and work mechanically the Trolls and Undead NEED to have access to Disc and Holy trees.

May 2nd 2010 1:40PM What you need to do here is separate game mechanics from lore. Troll and Undead priests, speaking solely from a lore perspective, are ALWAYS Shadow Priests. Trolls because of the dark Loa and Voodoo spirits they worship and Undead because worship of the Light would consume their bodies and destroy them. In the Alpha of WoW Vanilla Undead couldn't be healed by "Holy" spells, it hurt them. They changed this in order to balance out mechanics and allow Undead Warriors to tank effectively. Just as they allow Undead and Troll priests access to the Discipline and Holy trees, because it balances out the game mechanics even if it makes no sense from a lore perspective.

Healing's evolution in Cataclysm {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2009 2:49PM You're right. GC said in the linked forum posts that the biggest challenge for healers using every single GCD available to have a heal inc or else someone is going to die. Thats not how I think healers should play, nor, it seems, does GC think that way either. I'm also very excited to see healing become less whack-a-mole and require more precision and accuracy.

Breakfast Topic: Back to where you once belonged {WoW}

Oct 14th 2009 10:30AM I played an Alliance Druid for all of Vanilla. Re-rolled Blood Elf Priest with TBC so I could join a friend on his server then recently re-rolled Troll Shaman because my strict 10man guild had three healing priests and no shamans. My main spec is Resto but I have a comparable Enhancement spec and gear and I actually pulled 6k dps on a 25Ony PuG last night. All I'll say is that once I switched to melee dps, even as off-spec, I've found it very difficult to go back to ranged dps like my priest's Shadow spec or my druid's Balance spec.
