Mar 31st 2012 8:20PM It says right in the tooltip that Arcane Missiles has a chance to proc from damaging spells. I'd bet that the best decision will be to use it every time it procs, since it saves mana, and since it, according to the Mists talent calculator, actually does more DPS than Arcane Blast (though this could change).
Mar 28th 2012 10:52AM They've stated that they're cutting back on weapon % damage in attacks and buffing weapon damage to compensate, with the intent that the changes will just counter each other at high levels. The reasoning was to lower twink damage in lower level PvP brackets (at least, that's what I've heard). Also, I'm pretty sure I've seen a blue post stating that Blood will still have a 30 second Outbreak (one of those invisible changes that the talent calculator doesn't show).
Mar 27th 2012 8:59PM While I was initially a bit apprehensive towards the increased emphasis on active tanking, I feel that the Paladin system has shaken out quite well, and I hope that they're still working on Death Knight tanking. DK's are often held up as the quintessential active tank, but, to me, at least, active tanking involves making decisions with trade-offs, such as the way that Paladins in Mists will decide to spend their Holy Power on healing, shielding, or increased mitigation. Death Knights, however, have a very singular focus: to churn out lots of Death Strikes. While there certainly is skill involved in getting the most out of the Death Strikes, I would still prefer more options for our tanking system. Separating Blood Shield from Death Strike would be my first thought, and that could also help to solve many issues surrounding the scalability of our Mastery. Ultimately, I think that there are many things anticipate in Mists for Blood and for Death Knights in general, but I still see many issues left untouched, and I look forward to seeing how Blizzard addresses them.
Mar 27th 2012 4:06PM They look great! And the Mogu one reminds me of The Legend of Zelda. I'm looking forward to these.
Mar 27th 2012 10:15AM Looks like Hot Topic's back in business.
Mar 24th 2012 11:58PM It's super effective!
Mar 24th 2012 8:07PM I, for one, fully support Warlock tanking. It means they'll die more.
Mar 23rd 2012 1:04PM The DK one looks too much like a warrior set to me.
Mar 22nd 2012 3:29PM Mages already get Army of the Critters with Glyph of Crittermorph.
Mar 21st 2012 12:15AM I hope he talks like that when discussing DKs.
