Oct 21st 2010 7:15PM The schedule that's been posted around says people can pick up tickets from 8am-10pm on Fri. as well. And if the opening ceremony is at 10am why not wait in line to get in, then pick up your ticket at the door and go get a seat.
I really have no idea if that's even possible, but if you have to wait in line to get in on Friday morning why not pick up your ticket then?
Oct 21st 2010 6:54PM Honest question, why doesn't anyone pick up their ticket at the entrance after waiting in line for the opening ceremony? (Rather than wait in two lines)
Jul 21st 2010 3:02AM If you recall, abilities are now automatically scaled with your level after you initially learn them. My best guess is that there was a problem in doing this scaling with the abilities you learn from talents, seeing as you could potentially learn them at any level with enough points. They probably introduced a baseline level 1 version of these spells so they would have a consistent point to scale from.
Jul 17th 2010 12:50AM Why are mages the only class without the mastery screen shown? I know that seems like a small thing but I've been looking forward to seeing it, and to see you finally show them all but leave it out was a let down. (Especially on top of having no meaningful questions answered for mages.)
On a happier note the other classes are looking good!
Jul 17th 2010 12:46AM Ideally the gear would work out like this; resto shaman roll against elemental shaman, resto druids rolls against boomkin, and holy/disc priests roll against shadow. Mages already roll against warlocks (and if your correct about itemization, then boomkin and elemental shaman as well as the occasional healer.)
Also, if it's not raiding that you're talking about you could use the random dungeon finder tool which prevents other armor classes from rolling on your gear.
As for warriors, they stated in the chat that they want it to be a play-style choice. You pick one in the spec and then look for those drops, you don't pick up both kinds of drops and respec whichever is better from the drops you have. It's also prevented a bit by the fact that you can't use a one-hander and a two-hander together (effectively) so if you were going to switch you would need two new weapons that were both better or on par with the old ones.
Jun 4th 2010 2:17PM People have been asking for "new maps" for the old BGs for awhile now, glad that it finally happened.
And before you complain that Blizzard is "just being lazy" keep in mind that this is being released in addition to the Gilnean battleground at launch, that's the most BGs at launch ever.
Jun 2nd 2010 10:16PM Well it seems I've fallen victim to the commenting system, that was supposed to be a reply to the 84% comment above.
Side note: I watched 8% drop away as 400 did off the queue, so ~5000 tickets being sold today, probably more like 7500 as people could be buying multiples.
Jun 2nd 2010 10:14PM Watching the percent left in stock bar plummet as my position in queue stays roughly the same is really demoralizing. Well I guess I'll try again Saturday, hopefully less people will be trying as they've already got their ticket. Well probably not, but at least it's a second chance at getting lucky.
May 28th 2010 8:15PM I was unable to find the direct quote from Blizzard that they design encounters with mods like DBM in mind, but the general consensus was that they had said it at some time. That's kind of a different argument though, which is why I chose to break it off as a separate paragraph and label it as such, so as not to dilute my main point.
The main point of my post was in regards to where the line of acceptability can be drawn, and it is that Blizzard doesn't want you to be able to measure distances. This one I can back up:
"We purposely do not make it easy for mods to estimate range because we want that to be a test of player skill and not have the mods play for you." ... "Areas, cones, chains and spells that just go from one caster to one target all work a little bit differently. You cannot use them effectively as rulers." -Ghostcrawler (July 2009)
Apparently using spells (and DBMs range check) is not accurate enough to be in violation of this.
