The Queue: No sleep 'til BlizzCon {WoW}

Oct 21st 2010 3:19PM I dusted off the old affliction lock following the most recent patch and something seems strange about my soulstone.

Now when I soulstone somebody, I can not use the soulstone again for 30 minutes. However, the soulstone only lasts for 15 minutes leaving an unprotected 15 minute gap. Maybe I imagined it, but I thought the numbers used to match up.

Can somebody let me know if this has indeed changed recently and if so has blizzard given the reasoning behind the change?

Breakfast Topic: What would you tell your level 1 self? {WoW}

Oct 1st 2010 10:39AM Oh to be able to go back in time and help my poor little noob self out from the beginning. I can see it now. It would probably go something like this.

Yeah, yeah I’m you in about 2 years from now . . .

Don’t worry about how. I’ve only got a few minutes and we’ve got a lot of work to do. First thing first. You’re leveling a Retribution Paladin, DO NOT STACK SPELL POWER . . .

Yes I know Exorcism is your hardest hitting attack, but that’s not you’re only attack and it doesn’t scale near as well as your others will. Besides, a patch will come out in a couple months and exorcism will no longer be an instant cast. Stack strength. Trust me on this one . . .

What? What do you mean “What about intellect and spirit?!” . . .

Well hears a little tip for you there chief, stop using consecration on every single target pull and use Judgment of Wisdom and you won’t run out of mana every pull. Freaking noob . . .

A noob is . . . ah just forget it. Now on to your gear. You’re a ret pally, drop the shield and get a big boy weapon. Any 2 hander with strength will wor . . . are those cloth legs you’re wearing? Why in the name of all that is the holy light are you wearing cloth armor? . . .

I’VE ALREADY TOLD YOU TO FORGET ABOUT SPELLPOWER. And were exactly did you get those legs anyway? . . .

Really? Do you realize how many priests, mages, and warlocks you pissed off when you rolled need on those as a ret pally? Okay these things happen. Just remember 2 hand weapons. Mail armor until you can wear plate and then plate armor you will be fine. . .

NO IT’S NOT OKAY TO ROLL ON MAIL WITH SPELL POWER!!!!! . . .
Hey when you down Arthas, then you can tell me how to play our class . . .

What do you mean “Who is Arthas?” Oh my lord. I just realized you’re still clicking spells and keyboard turning aren’t you. You know what; here are a couple frostweave bags. I’m told they’re handy when leveling. I’ve got to go. Best of luck . . . jackass.

Guild chat coming to the Mobile Armory app {WoW}

Sep 21st 2010 2:37PM I mention this I a reply to another comment. The armory app for android is called Droid Armory and is available in the android marketpace.

I can't compare it to the iPhone app as I've never used the iPhone app, but I've been happy with it for the couple months that I've had it.

Jun 11th 2010 11:02AM Thank you for the response. Although, it seems like you fixated on one part of it and didn't answer the question. As for your reply about coh not defining the class. That's your opinion and its a fair point. I was basing it on my playstyle and my opinion. And with my playstyle and the t10 4 set bonus, I see coh as defining the class.

You mentioned pom and poh. PoM is a great spell but shared between disc and holy. Therefore not defining. As for PoH, I rarely use it now. I can get as much throughput with a lot less wasted overhealing using renews, CoH, and instant flash heals when proc is up without worrying about somebody dying during a long cast time. Its still nice for large predictable damage if you have the buffer time to cast it, but I just find it situational.

As for my original question, does any other class have a 10 second cooldown on ONE of their defining heals (non panic button spell of course). Also for the comment about its already a 6 second cooldown and its just going to 10. You do realize that's and increase in cooldown time of over 50%. Right?

Jun 11th 2010 8:47AM I'm not familiar with every other healing class in the game, but does any other class have their main healing spell, the one that identifies that class, on a 10 sec. cooldown? Or even close to a 10 second cooldown? I know disc. priests don't. Healadins? Shammys? Druids? Anybody?

Maybe there will be glyph to reduce the cooldown like penance. I will take the wait and see approach on this one, but 1st impression is my druid is looking better everyday.
