May 25th 2011 8:03PM Well, I see 2 big problems with this 1st all priest will off-spec spriest and we will see healers using this staff reforged and this will be hard enough that only 1 or 2 people per guild will get it, so if you're not a guild officer/GM or far and away the number 1 caster might just as well forget it and as the number 3 warlock in my guild that puts at least 7 people in front of me :(
Jan 5th 2011 4:24PM My current main is a bear named pugit bsecause the guild I was in this time last year would refuse to raid if we had to pug, missed many weeks of raiding. My hunter name is taketh from the line in Pulp Fiction. I wanted to name some after the amber series but all were taken wben I started a couple of months before BC
Oct 19th 2010 12:04PM My druid has had the noble title since lvl 11 thanks to my main, a lock y favoritwhich usually wears "of the nightfall" my favorite raid and
First successful raid as raid leader
Aug 13th 2010 8:11PM All of the staff is horde? I call BS, come on show some love for alliance
Aug 8th 2010 1:44PM I had a fall at work and broke my neck, luckily for me I had no permanent damage just 9 months of recovery including wearing a "halo" for 5 months. One of my first goals was getting back on wow as soon as possible. It took 5 weeks before i could log on and 2 months before I could raid, but it gave me a definative goal and encouraged me to work towards it.When I could play for more than 30 minutes or so, it definitely helped keep me sane I had something I could do with limited mobility (with brace and endurance issues). I managed to not get stuck watching tv, particularly during daytime hours when there is very limited programming that appeals to me. I recently returned to work and although I wish I had done more alt leveling and achievement runs, I was able to upgrade my gear because I was available nearly all the time. Also worth noting in my opinion had wow been available in the 80s and 90s it would have saved me thousands of dollars in alcohol and eating meals out every night.
Jul 17th 2010 2:03PM I dont think you are seeing my point, leveling is about learning your class as a whole and all the abilities that the class is capable of. By locking my talent tree not only do I only learn one aspect of the class I may find I don't enjoy that class at all and simply abandon it, as I have done with a warrior. But when I decide to dual spec or change spec or off spec I know little or nothing about capabilites of those other specs. The way I'm leveling my druid now I put points in areas I find interesting if they dont work I can move them. THAT allows me to learn as I go instead of starting over. Its like going to school and learning nothing but math for the first 5 years sure its useful but what if I like reading, english or history more and dont have the opportunity to learn them until after I've decided math bores me? btw I have a well geared 80 lock and play it mainly, by playing the druid I'm looking for something different and as an alt feel free to experiment with it, locking the tres takes that away.
Jul 17th 2010 2:37AM honestly dont see any point to talent trees at all, answer 3 questions - class? specialization? - pve or pvp? - bang heres ur tree. There is simply no room for any individuality and since u cant unlock another tree until ur first one is full new players cant even move points around to see if they like 1 style better than another, for example recently rolled a druid with intention of making a tank as i leveled it up I experimented with points knowing I would change it at 80 and found I enjoy feral cat better. Under the new system I make a bear tank and must play it that way all the way to 70 before I can put points somewhere else so if I decide I dont like tank I'll need to completely relearn how to play toon because i can get no experience in other specs at that point I might as well reroll it and start over. I think the whole system sucks if implimented as advertised
Jul 15th 2010 6:15PM oh, and the part about it was grtting too complicated, is this game meant for 4 and over? or people that actually enjoy a little mental exercise while they play? might as well play tetris without having subscription fees
Jul 15th 2010 6:10PM looks like total bs and lazyness on blizzards part again, realistically made it so everybody will have the same bs talents and no individual specs, might just as well give everybody 85s to start and not bother to learn to play your toons as you level just ask the other guys what they do and copy that exactly
