Interview with Xzin: the man with ten arms {WoW}

Dec 15th 2006 2:54PM Well, taking a look at costs: we're probably clocking in at $14,000 as a low-ball figure. $1,500 goes to his 5 accounts over the last couple years.

This is our next Mark Discordia.

Circle of Healing or Circle of Terrible? {WoW}

Dec 12th 2006 3:34PM You know everyone says lightwell is cool, but I've never seen it used in MC, BWL, or Naxx. I've never seen raid strategy designed around optional spells. Even for Vael, we have some priests who prayer of healing instead of holy nova.

If blizzard actually wants to design a battle aorund this spell in a dungeon, wouldn't that actually be counter to what they are trying to do in the expansion with the "not being forced to spec a certain tree" mantra?

Do they design a spell for a dungeon or s dungeon for a spell? Either way, sounds pretty dumb to me. Since the spell heals under 1000 on average (assuming good gear). You can use it as a top off spell or a sort of emergency spell. But the output is so low that it isn't very successful.

For 41 points as a priest.. the "healing class" I'd like a spell that breaks me out of the group only mass heals. You can cap it at 5 people, but make it location based, not group based.

I'm not really impressed with the holy tree's additions. All of it is in the mediocre, nothing really changed category. Now discipline is a whole other story. Reflective shield is great.

+Damage and healing: what do you mean "up to"? {WoW}

Dec 8th 2006 11:42AM My question has always been around the +damage/healing of spells that gain a faster casting time due to talents. Does the +damage/healing base off the original cast time or the talent-reduced one?

I'd hope for the original cast time, but it is probably the new cast time. I'm not sure if that's fair (a talent having a negative affect on the spell it is enhancing), but i could see this being the case.

Priests and our discontents {WoW}

Dec 7th 2006 6:51PM I've specc'd holy to 41 to give all the new healing things a try. However, i lose major mana efficiency from the additional 10 points in Discipline. I am of the opinion that the priest talents in Disc and Holy will make more sense once we can use 61 points.

Also, I'm raiding tonight, so I'll be testing out the circle of healing, and seeing if it is helpful when healing the bunched up melee groups. Too soon to tell, but I trhink for the holy/raid priest oiur old specs will be better until we can invest the extra 10 points we get from level 70. (Plus we get some nice little spells on the way up to 70 that may make the difference).

I don't think blizzard balanced the new talent trees for level 60; but for level 70. So some classes will be more powerful with the talents they have access to now, but will wane at 70.

But it still made me kind of sad that there wasn't much to get excited about for us. I wanted to turn into something or summon a phoenix or something.. lol!

Breakfast Topic: So, how's the patch? {WoW}

Dec 6th 2006 1:50PM to 34 (jpc): I noticed that spell crit issue on my priest as well. I'm not sure if it is just not recording the increased crit, or if the crit itself is not increasing. I'll check today, and submit a ticket.

Additionally, what did priests end up speccing with, that are still going to do raids? I'm interested in disc and holy stuff. Anyone use circle of healing? I tried using the free smit and clearcast talents, but they didn't really proc very much. Is Tier 1 gear too low to make use of crit based talents? A lot of our upper talents seem more gear based, and will probably see more potential in the expansion (once we close in on gear closer to tier 3 type stats). Otherwise, I don't realize much from the upper talents, that wouldn't get balanced out by the usual 21/30 type of builds.

Anyone go deep in discipline? (specifically the reflective shield?) I'm tempted to try it out tonight.

My final build with the new talents really doesn't make sense until I ahve all 61 points so maybe going 41 would be interesting.

Let the delays begin! {WoW}

Dec 5th 2006 6:32PM *4 hours of rolling restarts and server crashes.*

Don't worry.. that comes AFTER the delays!

: )

Let the delays begin! {WoW}

Dec 5th 2006 5:32PM I'm hoping for the "I fell into the center of the world" type of bugs!

Leaving WoW until the Burning Crusade {WoW}

This IS roleplaying! You believe these things hold some sort of value or importance. You have faith in the social framework of a video game.

It's not that the character is you, its that you have taken on a persona that is neither you or your character. It is your WoW persona. In your case, you are a "guild master".

Ding! {WoW}

Nov 8th 2006 7:53PM Has it really come to chatting about whether or not we like "ding" ?
