Nov 24th 2010 11:55AM ok, i get blizzard's message: i won't raid this week or the next one. with class nerfs, gems nerfs, no portals, no nothing, it will be a titanic effort to keep raiding at this point. some would ask: why do you raid in these weeks? to wipe off boredom, to kill bosses i didnt get the chance to months ago. We were still progressing through heroic icc but perhaps ill be doing something else or perhaps give wow a break until cataclysm launches
Nov 24th 2010 11:39AM exactly Krazy Korean. Im in the same boat. and i suspect we will be in cataclysm, specially in 5 mans where well get pug tanks. You posted while i was writing so i didnt get the chance to read it and not post mine :P
P.s.: is there a way to login more less permanently in the forums? having to type address/pass every post is a bit unforgiving :(
Nov 24th 2010 11:35AM thanks for the article. I havent logged in since the shattering but I noted an MVP champ missing here :O which made me very sad... no glyph of salvation anymore? come on, really? for dungeons/raidings it was pretty much a must. Tanks aren't exactly holding aggro like gods nowadays and I have to stop dps sometimes and spent time idle just to avoid killing myself (or others, breath-wise). The retribution paladin is a threat high/not so high damage ratio class (opossed to locks/mages) and as such I believe we are in need of an aggro brake.
Glyph of salv did just that. Pop it before your major cooldowns (wings/zealotry) and it was less likely to pull aggro. With its departure there aren't many good major glyphs, only mana savers which, i dunno about other pallies, but in my experience i pretty much never run out of it (using consecration only very rarely, i dont think its worth its mana in dps). Being that the case i guess ill pick up hammer of wrath one...
Also, the minors suck after the shattering. We used to have 1 good minor glyph (lay on hands). now none :(. used to have truth/righteousness to be able to switch from single to multi target whenever i wanted to but they are no way good or anything. I know, minor glyphs should suck and don't impact the game, bla bla, still something useful as sense undead or lay on hands (im asking for just one good minor glyph) or at the very least something cool to watch as polymorph: penguin wouldnt break the class imo.
Nov 23rd 2010 11:27AM At the very least locks only got 12% shattered. More like 17% for warriors :(. But yeah, i know what they mean. I was execriting Lanathiel for 83ish k's yesterday and i was using lame, lame gear. I can only imagine what kind of damage could a warrior with shadowmourne/heroic lk 25 weapon deal.
