Nov 8th 2011 5:39PM I totally agree; and wonder how they might address this, given that the implication is that older bosses won't be as simple to down. One idea I've thought of is to add a modifier like the do when you attack a mob 5-ish levels above you (crushing bow damage?). Leveling up, it prevents a toon from going more quickly than they should. Looking back into old content, you could be the one delivering increase damage not because of ilvl but because of some internal modifier.
Sep 28th 2011 11:25AM In reference to the Raiding vs. time question today, I've found that I'm squarely in the middle- love to raid, don't do it often, and (gulp) LIKE to do it post-nerf. 3-hour wipe fests are not the way I'm going to enjoy the game (that just my play style, not saying there is anything wrong with it for others), and like that the 2-day raid I have set up for today and tomorrow will get at least 6/7 (no, not even HM), but that's just fine with me.
Aug 29th 2011 1:18PM If I had to guess, I would bet we never see another class addition. Right now there are 10, which translates into 10-person raids easily (class run, etc.). An addition would leave someone out, unless you have gear drops that aren't class-specific. Thoughts?
Aug 23rd 2011 12:08PM Is it too early to start wild rampant speculation about where Deathwing might emerge from/we fight him? No? My vote is the Sundering (think it's called) in the Cape of Stranglethorn, it is just there - no assoicated quests that I'm aware of, is just a big sink of water (and you die if you go down there), and boasts some of the best music when you fly over. Any other ideas?
Aug 19th 2011 7:29PM So, everyone's talking about tier-this and Lightbringer-that for Transmorph, but I was wondering, basically any gear with +stat should be fair game, right? I like the idea of my rogue running around in ilvl20 (or whatever) gear boasting Tier 12 punch.
Jul 31st 2011 3:09PM Has Blizz given any explanation why the Battle Standard of Coordination (and similar) aren't allowed in Firelands? It seems odd to me to exclude its use there but not (to my knowledge) anywhere else.
Jun 30th 2011 7:53PM Personally, I'm excited for my guild to get our first Nef kill tonight. With the schedules and size of our guild, that wasn't going to happen without the nerf bat. Getting the boss down together is far more rewarding than having to be leet to do it.
Jun 22nd 2011 6:50PM I'm still loving the easy gold on my 85 that already has Flame Warden. Plus, a pet I didn't get last year!
Unrelated: anyone know why MMO-Champ has been down all day?
May 1st 2011 4:38PM Well done, intrepid readers... just keeping you on your toes.
But seriously, what are the chances I decide to ask a question that was answered that day? I ask this a day earlier and I look (less) foolish, haha.
May 1st 2011 12:52PM I seem to remember reading in a Dev Q&A that come 4.1 we would be able to change the order of our characters at the enter game screen. Cruel joke or was this just overlooked?
