Apr 11th 2010 4:51PM First, I have always hated the rigid DK rotation. It makes you so predictable in PVP and confined in PVE. This runic change that allows for more adaptable play is welcome in my books. Second, DSim sounds to me to be either an offensive move or a defensive move. You can copy an offensive spell or defensive spell depending on what is cast. Cast it on a paladin, and he will think twice about bubbling while its up because he will give you a bubble to fall back on. It gives the game so much more dynamic and potential. Third, I have said it time and time again that Blizzard is trying too hard to make all three trees work that the trees themselves kind of sucked. It's like a farmer trying to raise too many animals and there is not enough food to feed them all. So the cows produce bad milk and the bacon doesn't have enough fat in it to taste good. A good farmer who has quality in mind has more feed than animals to raise the best stock. Blizzard is heading in the right direction with the Blood Tree, but they should not make the Frost tree a dual wielding tree and a 2h tree. Again they are trying to do too much. Keep the Frost tree strictly as DW and the Unholy tree the 2h dps tree. You cannot please everyone Blizzard. Make a good tree and regardless people will play it or reroll but please for the love of god don't go down that road again where people can be 2h or DW because you know if it doesn't work, they will just complain and QQ that it's your fault.

Jan 31st 2010 2:24PM 2nd post before i go do my readings. Having played this campaign in Warcraft 3 firsthand, (Arthas' action shocked me to the core which is why i'm here posting =)) it was clear that the city of Stratholme was doomed and all the citizen's were going to die. First there was the infected grain which most citizens had consumed. Secondly, i don't think it was made clear in the WoW dungeon that Mal'ganis himself was razing the city and actively turning people into the Undead. The WoW dungeon showed Mal'ganis as passive standing by waiting for the disease to take its hold on the citizens. No he didn't. In WC3 you had to fight Mal'ganis turning people into undead by killing more buildings and citizens than he did. If Arthas did nothing, the town of Stratholme was 100% going to turn zombie and kill everything in its path. But what Arthas did was stupid, he disbanded the only Order that was efficient in combating the Scourge. Arthas is brash and I attribute this to his upbringing as a rich boy who hasn't experience compromise or humility towards others.
Here's what should have been done: Arthas tells Uther to round up what paladins he can muster and meet him in Stratholme. Arthas tells Jaina to put up a forcefield much like the one that surrounds Dalaran to prevent the evil from getting out. Arthas should then go have a cup of tea, relax and wait for the undead to turn. Then it's HAMMER TIME!!! Open a can of Paladin whoop ass!!! ... But no.. because then there would be no story xP
Jan 31st 2010 1:07PM Stratholme was a way for Metzen to foreshadow Arthas' potential for corruption and evil through ignorance. He was going to ignorantly trek to Northrend, to pursue a selfish cause of revenge. Arthas cares nothing for his people, which is what disturbed Jaina and Uther. I love this story the best and Metzen good job on the story. The Arthas story and the fallen hero archetype has been told and retold countless times. Although he has all the power in the world, he sits upon the icy throne in Northrend, cold & alone. Tear*
Jan 6th 2010 12:18PM I see the Orcs as a copy of the Mongoloid Tribes who although were adept warriors and archers did not amount to much because their various tribes and clans were scattered. It took a leader to unite and solidify them as a whole (Genhis Khan) before they conquered half of Asia. Look at Germany prior to World War 2. It had the conditions, yet a leader is needed. The Orcs are similar, yes they are capable of brute genocide but what race isn't? Surely if they were if they were left alone, I believe they would not amount to much. Throw in a Nerzhul and Guldan and u have your catalyst.
