May 2nd 2011 9:37AM Bubble duration actually hurts leveling more than I see it as a viable alternative to shield spamming. Currently, I can bubble before i pull a mob, kill it, pull another, kill it, and have the bubble wear off without getting any mana return from rapture.....this sucks. Disc is already not offensive enough...this is just another kick to the groin.
change mana regen
make smite/holy F more mobile
Apr 1st 2011 9:37AM I'm the "PvPer". If someone's getting corpse camped, they usually hollar "Anderson1!!". It's a "raiding guild", and I'm the only one with a handful of vicious chars.
Our guild leader is definitely the "scapegoat", as he gets blamed for poor healing when he's on his rogue, or pathetic tanking from his lock....he literally can't get this stuff right, ever...
Mar 23rd 2011 10:42AM Frost is not "fine" it's not "bad" it's not any of these things you keep saying.
Frost is "different". Mages and hunters are both in such a different place, that these sorts of buffs will not fix it.
Warrior/Lock/Priest/Druid/Sham/Rogue/DK/Pally cal all heal during combat, without sacrificing dmg too much.
Mage must stop and cast bandage or Evocate, hunter must stop and bandage in deturance. These 2 classes deserve self heal, or more burst to compensate for a huge lack of survivability. Dispel a mage, and he's naked gettin summer sausaged thrown at him.
Mar 9th 2011 9:32AM Point missed I think.
Someone's name is wrong on TwistingNether, I report them....if they gank me, while I'm out farming ore or something, I take more notice of them. So, I'm more likely to report this guy, and the same holds true for me I hope. If I make myself known, put myself in the spotlight so to speak, then my name better fit. If it doesn't, then what am I(being the person we're talking about) doing on an RP server?
Also...I open GM tickets for ppl who have bots farming ore for them. The little lvl 80 ones, that are in uldum and have no gear on, with rez sickness, and if you thump them, they just keep trying to mine....and then about a half hour later of thumping them, some guy comes back to the keyboard and trys to mount, then trys to run into mobs and get killed, etc etc...yeah, annoys the crap outta me that they are going ape on the ore I'm also trying to farm...so I open tickets, have had 1 stop farming, as far as I can tell...the other 2...still out there.
Mar 9th 2011 9:23AM Right! Can't you just picture the other guy frantically smashing his "trink" button, while leaning back in his chair yelling "Don't do it....Don't...I SAID DON'T JU....awww"
Mar 9th 2011 9:19AM ^^^ Hell...yes!
Feb 28th 2011 3:37PM I think this talk of "this class can do this, 3 to 4 times a fight, but i can't" is kind of off
Pally's build holy power, if they self heal, it's a massive dps loss
Rogues build combo points, and if they spend them on anything but their best rotation, it's a massive dps loss
Hunters can blow focus, but at a dps loss in many cases.
Mages can do various things...all resulting in dps loss, and then they have the token oh sh*t key for ice block...
Priests get a pain suppression or wings, but they don't get it once a min or anything
Shams are different for sure, those totems get put up constantly...but are they really necessary (much like your lock shard question...do they even matter)
Other classes have similar questions of what to use. 1 Cold blood is a decent dps hit, but an overall dps increase for the fight...nothing too huge, it's a crit and maybe a couple more muts, but that's all.
I think as it currently stands, they are aren't powerful enough to warrant them regening 1 per minute, but the balance between how many you can get while in a fight, and how much they increase an ability needs to be very carefully considered.
Feb 24th 2011 3:41PM Shut up druid...you're always faster than a rogue.
The day my rogue bleeds hurt like druid bleeds is the day I agree with you on this, until then...rogues are THE stealth class, druids just have a stealth...doesn't make them "animal rogues". You have plenty of tools to work with, don't try and get everything from every other class...no matter how OP druids get, they can't seem to help complaining about 1 more little thing...
Feb 22nd 2011 9:49AM I PvP almost exclusively, and after these changes, me and my 3's team were like "wtf" because we didn't know they went into effect. I was oom sooo fast as disc, and I basically couldn't keep us alive as long as any other healer.
So, I respeced holy, and the crazy bubbles were awesome. Plus, speed buffs to my rogue, and my lock really thanked me for the chastises inbetween his CC'ing.
Flash forward to hotfix revert, I'm still holy, didn't go back, and we hit the 1550 mark. I'm glad for the change, and the revert, because it got me to venture out from disc which I played for the last 2 years exclusively, and try holy in pvp...which is rather awesome.
