Oct 21st 2010 9:41AM Unfortunately they added voice acting to those hilarious blokes at the same time they put in the fp from Coldridge Valleyto Kharanos. If you haven't checked out the Dwarven Bombers since the patch I'd suggest you go check it out in a new light. The voice acting (for me at least) makes those guys that much more funny!
Oct 20th 2010 3:11PM With the "once daily try" you get at the mount the DR was increased. They might have gone too far tough if the DR is as good as ppl are saying.
Oct 20th 2010 3:09PM I'm with cowfodder on this one. Welcome to the pre-expac patch. Where things are broken, being tested, improved, worked on, and other wise polished in real time on live in order to make Cataclysm better.
To respond to Dril's comment: Blizzard has that reputation because the finished product is always polished finely tuned and very reliable. This is partially how they get there. They now have 2 "beta" (as others in this thread of comments would call live) to test things in a live setting. This is the ultimate stress testing Blizzard could do; mkae live basically an open beta without a bunch of the beta content. They're making sure the basic framework won't crack under the pressure of 12million players suddenly logging in to Cataclysmic Azeroth. To address your "major" bug complaints; I could count probably about 5 times during the wrath cycle that inspect has been broken 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.3.5. I can't tell you the reason, but if you can't inspect someone right now you'll be able to soon. They're making sure our classes work first before making sure you can see what weapon that guy has, or what spec he's using. If it's really that important to you just write down his name and go to the armory. Graphical bugs; this game has graphical bugs all over the place even before 4.0.1 dropped. The only real big one that i personally find unsettling is that projected textures don't always show when you have the option turned on. This can cause a problem while raiding, but you almost always get a debuff if you're standing in something so it's not game breaking.
TL:DR - if yo udon;t like it unsub until Dec. 7th otherwise stfu and deal with it. It'll all work in due time. We just need to practice a little thing called patience that not many people from my generation seem to have been taught very well.
Oct 16th 2010 12:42PM Chains adds FF to the target meaning they also get Chillblains added to them when CoI is used. Just a thought...
Oct 15th 2010 2:40PM shorting your healing squad a tank cd isn't going to help ayone. The old AD was way too op.
Oct 14th 2010 3:17PM Omg seriously? I hate the "everyone's a winner" mentality. The people that get it down FIRST should get the world/server FIRST achivements. Yes this is based on luck somewhat, but there is a large amount of skill to it too. Are you going to tell me that the players that win the World Series / Stanley Cup / NBA Championships / Super Bowl should have to share their respective "Best [insert sport] Team in the World" with someone else? To me that is exactly what you're saying with this post.
Oct 13th 2010 3:39PM It's funny you should post this because on my 2 main toons (Frost DK and Ret Paladin) i've noticed a significant DPS increase. It seems that the caster classes aren't as dependent on Mastery as Melee classes are right now. I personally have boosted my mastery up to 15 on my ret and 12 on my Dk (i know it sounds negligable, but thats an extra 5% chance to proc TV on ret and an extra 6-7% frost damage on my DK).
Also to address the rets a bit more; the class is entirely different than it was on Monday when the servers went down. The inital knee jerk reaction is "zomg rets are broken etc etc etc" but it's just an adjustment period. This is actually the exact opposite for rets than what happened in the BC > Wrath switch over because rets were extreamly OP at that time.
Oct 12th 2010 11:54AM I've been on two different servers now, and the same thing happens every time a patch is due to hit/the servers go down for any reason at all. The last hour or so is full of people asking either sarcastic or serious questions of various ignorance of the up coming content, and people troll their faces off. If you're looking to sell something last minute you're SoL because trade chat is getting a new post every .25 sec varying between troll comment ignorant question or a last chance sale attempt.
I personally find it fascinating and just afk and watch the mayhem ^.^
Oct 9th 2010 5:06PM Fire Nova works with certain Fire Totems as of 4.0.1 (Flametoung, Fire Elemental, and Magma). so for single target no you won't be using FN.
Oct 9th 2010 5:03PM You beat me to it! They removed LB from the Enh Shammy rotation 3-5 builds ago. So your MW5 spell will remain the same as it is now for PvE (depending on situation of course).
