May 5th 2010 3:42AM squig_masta, i as a follower of the light former blood elv paladin, now human paladin think that the light is a cure for everthing. the question is were they really addicted? You can't really tell.
But the most important thing is the sunwell is restored with holy light as i said before. the first sunwell was only pure arcane magic like the well of eternity. so if they are addicted they aren't to all forms of magic but to arcane magic. And now their source of arcane magic is not arcane anymore but holy and they seem just fine. That makes me think they were never really addicted in the first place or the holy light cured the addiction.
May 4th 2010 6:26PM Well nice post but i think one thing should be added! The blood elves aren't addicted anymore. The sunwell is restore with a spark of M'uru. So the sunwell is holy light rather than arcane magic because M'uru was a naaru and Velen said one think:
"In time, the light and hope within will rebirth more than this mere fount of power. Mayhap, they will rebirth the soul of a nation."
Apr 13th 2010 1:16PM Well ok i undo my statement about burst. But burst is all we have so there is no depth in tactics or something like that...
Apr 13th 2010 11:49AM For now Ret is complety "useless" in Arenas. You have no burst, no mortal strike, no healing reducing ability nor an ability that stops heal and of course no snare. So what? All you can do is to follow your Target and hit your buttons as hard as you can... Thats not all there is to it but it is the truth for 80% of the arena games.
At the moment you can dispel yourself and allies at least from magic but in cataclysm that "feature" is gone to.
But i am sure they will not let ret die again:
"One of the changes we'll continue to emphasize with Retribution is trading more defenses for offense. A defensive dps spec just doesn't work really well in WoW."
I think trading magic dispel and or divine shield/hand of protection against a useful spell/strike and more offense for ret is a good direction.
