Feb 28th 2012 4:52AM I was sad that I'd have to go back to a 32-but client.
Now I know it's not an indefinite wait.
Yay! Me happy!
Feb 27th 2012 4:37PM What I'm amazed no one has suggested. With stat weights a d spec gear s d off spec gear. And issues with loot that can't be used (int plate anyone?)
Make the stat weights for each spec in a class the same.
Makes reforging, regemming and respeccing simpler.
IMO, I'm not sure why blizz hasn't done this in their drive to make wow more accessible.
Nowhere in game or on the wow sites do they explain: "Right, rogues need agi, so do shamans, warriors need str, etc"
They need to do one of 3 things when it comes to stats:
1. Explain what is needed and why. I shouldn't need to theory craft or go to EJ to learn to play.
2. Simplfy stats on gear and how specs use those stats.
3. Remove stats altogether. (Not likely to happen ofc)
Anne has good points ( I play mainly hybrids, but I see what she means. ), but instead of QQ at purse or from hybrids, has anyone ideas to make stats and specs *mean something?*
Feb 16th 2012 11:29AM Lol. Forgot about OCS. That was a guild invite killer if ever there was one...
Feb 16th 2012 11:26AM This change was made when Mists was announced. It's just people forgot about it.
As for smart? Well, they say it makes more sense for them, seeing as talents aren't tied to specs anymore.
Conceivably, they could reduce, say, hunters, to 1 spec and call it done.
Personally, I hope they go the other way, and add more specs, or sub-specs. Like A shaman thats talents are all about speaking to spirits. Or ranged rogue.
What kind of sub specs would others like to see?
Feb 16th 2012 8:54AM @Noyou: I prefer MoP-o-pal-ooza! :P
Feb 10th 2012 11:20AM Yep. Read that too. [SPOILERS! lol]
Also, Sacco's comment: "Also, the cemetery is right next to the lake, which seems like a fundamentally bad place to bury your dead."
Free fish bait? No?
Feb 10th 2012 10:33AM Not slashed, then? :P
Feb 10th 2012 10:31AM @ Dark_Walker: I'd have loved to mate, but at 11 PM odd when I posted and I had to be up for work in about 5 hours. :D
But I get ya, saw a few numbers you've posted up elsewhere.
Even with your numbers, its still lost more than are playing others.
Others are, as you've said, "holding fast or gaining".
To those thinking subs lost or gained is somehow a "win"
Sub numbers for these games, including WoW and TOR, are ultimately unimportant. The games are still online and being played.
Hell, even the Granddaddies, Ultima and Everquest, are still running.
I would think that having anything more than 10K subs after 2 years would be a success, but it appears that haters (for all games) seem to have won this particular battle. Which is a shame.
How would people feel if people started posting on the CoD boards that COD1 is dead because everyone is playing MW2? Yeah, makes no sense, does it? But yet, this is what people do whenever there is a reported drop or rise in *any* MMO user base.
/afk, going trolling MW boards saying CS:GO is a COD-Killer... :P
Feb 10th 2012 8:57AM The Silithus cave is still there? YES!
I remember finding that back at the start of Wrath when I was working on getting Explorer.
Shaman + Ghost Wolf + Water Walking = WIN
I had Explorer before I had Cold Weather Flying. :)
Feb 9th 2012 5:56PM Yep. Any time anything even remotely negative gets posted, out come the anti-wow heads.
"Lulz dey lost 10k subs brah! Wow is dyin *rabble rabble rabble"
Same kinds of plonkers whine that Notch and minecraft are useless too.
The COD-Halolz-Gears-Brah brigade.
That hymn sheet must be xerox'd blank by now.
Pity they won't accept the facts. They trot out half facts.
1. Lost about 2 million subs in 2 years. (That's still more active subs than all other MMOs put together, and the amount lost is more than are playing the nearest rival.)
2. Lots of vanity pets and mounts sold. (it's a form of DLC. Dont whinge about $10 pets when you drop $20 for 2 maps and a Skin.)
3. It's an old game. (And? CoD and MW use I'd tech 4. Quake 3 / Doom 3 tech basically.)
5. It's not original. (Ever hear the story about the Hollywood exec who worked every plot down to cinderella or goldilocks and would only make movies with Cinderella plots?)
Haters gonna hate I'm afraid…
