Sep 7th 2010 5:23PM I tried the EVE trial a long time ago, at first you will be stunned by the graphics, but after your 500th warp it just dies on you. Plus the leveling system was basically cash in your 15$ a month and wait in the exp que.
You come to a game like WOW and take for granted how maintained it can be until you try EVE where if you lose, the developers get paid. Everything to economics, pvp, pve, is unregulated. Basically it is the game that allows you to be whatever you want to be and do whatever you want.
Sep 1st 2010 7:30PM You know that phrase "If it is too good to be true, It probably is." That's the only feeling I can have with these changes.
Technically speaking with enough haste and crit you can have a permanent shadow fiend. I know we aren't a pet class so this new direction seems to take a strange twist. This is not even counting that even with the mana nerfs we will have nearly infinite mana in pve.
In any case I would be shocked, I mean winning the lottery shocked, if this change goes through unchecked.
Aug 28th 2010 11:00PM I enjoy your optimism there fox, at the very least it give me the point of view that what I am about to say could be just QQ XD.
Personally I am not liking the shadow priest changes. That's my opinion about it, you don't have to agree with it, but I can tell you why.
Too many pvp powers. You think paralysis, phantasm, and sin and punishment are neat. The truth is they are neat for a pvp shadow priest. But as a pve shadow priest there talents provide nothing beyond gimmick situations. You have a mob running loose even paralysis isn't going to stop his rampage in time unless you RNG him the setup for the ability is 4 seconds, that only hold him for 4 seconds. Also what mob in Cataclysm is going to dispel my dots? At least 1?
Next would be that there are too many abilities tied to Mind blast. In the beta, we now have 5 uses for this ability. Snares, replenishment, nuke, mastery, and MS. It is an ability that is going to be a nightmare to balance. Why can't these abilities be shuffled around? Mind blast isn't the only ability we have.
Last but not least, twisted faith is 2% hit. All that work to remove the abilities only to bring them back and not do anything to change them. QQ probably, but I was under the impression that the whole reason for this new tree was to scrap such talents, not bring them back in another form
Now that my QQ is out of the way, I do enjoy shadow apparitions, but the numbers need tweaking, because at the moment they only do 1% of our damage.
Am I excited for shadow priests? Let's just say I am hopeful for them.
