Jan 30th 2011 8:44PM Is John Madden an internet meme now? I'm still trying to understand the John Madden reference on the "simplified" DPS chart.
Oct 5th 2010 9:51PM I'm curious to know Allison, how your stats are ending up at level 85 in beta? What kind of HP and what kind of DPS are you seeing as you tool around in dungeons?
Oct 5th 2010 9:50PM Bears in Cata get 2 ap per point of either strength and agility except for the first 10 points of either stat. It seems they have also reworked spell coefficients such that you'll do about the same amount of damage as you do now. At least that's been my general experience on the PTR.
Aug 4th 2010 5:39AM I had read previously (maybe on Elitestjerks or perhaps a different blog) that Improved Leader of the Pack is now baked into regular leader of the pack. As for damage (and hence threat) being down for bears, I suspect it has to do with the removal of feral attack power from the game. As a consequence, I would expect that Blizz hasn't gotten around to modifying the attacks to go off normalized weapon damage and revising the coefficients for things like lacerate, rip and rake.
One thing I'm curious about for the Beta, is does haste improve energy regeneration yet? They took a few talents away that reduce the cost of shred, for instance, and other attacks and was wondering if that was going to be even more important in Cata.
May 27th 2010 7:34AM With armor pen going the way of the dodo in Cataclysm, what will all the items (and gems) with armor penetration get converted into, stamina? more attack power perhaps?
