Mar 31st 2012 8:42PM Definitely wasn't being rude. I missed the AM glyph, unfortunately, or that would have clued me in to there being a proc, which I did not see present on the spell tooltip when I wrote this.
As for the RoP vs the rest, I do hope they all come out to be balanced, as I really like the idea behind RoP and would hate to not be able to use it on standstill fights due to poor balancing.
Mar 25th 2012 4:43AM I'm just going to leave this here because it will be one of the first responses readers will see, but thank you to everyone who responded positively to this column! Taking over for any other class columnist for a week is always intimidating, but in 40 comments not one person has had something rude to say to me. So, thank you all!
As for Christian: If he managed to escape the Pterosaurs and find a way out of Mesozoic (where I totally did not strand him. Totally.), he's probably very swamped with work and having a real life this week. Nothing too bad, though!
Mar 25th 2012 4:40AM Ele might get its own post about them, provided juicier news doesn't appear from the beta! As for resto, that's a Joe Perez thing. Though, seeing as I trapped Christian Belt in an alternate dimension already this week, doing the same to Joe might be an option on the table. ;D
Mar 24th 2012 9:56PM Haha, I was inspired this week! :D
Mar 24th 2012 3:34PM Ooh, yea. This is very true. @_@
Feb 26th 2012 12:53PM Pretty much exactly what Saint Stryfe said. Feral Spirits is balanced around the idea that it's both a defensive healing cooldown and a DPS cooldown. This wasn't an issue in WoTLK, where healing was expected to be powerful, but in Cataclysm Blizzard aimed to really reduce how easy it was to heal. Since the wolves' healing is based on the damage they do, their damage couldn't be tuned up as the healing would rise, and they were left doing damage on par of what they were doing in WoTLK in Cata.
Feb 26th 2012 12:50PM Very true. I'll change that asap. Thanks for letting me know!
Jan 29th 2012 9:07PM Wiping as in "the other team killed our king first and we had to try again," not like "graveyard run wiping."
Jan 29th 2012 9:06PM I actually have MSBT turned off! It is the built in damage display. :D I believe the font is Accidental Presidency.
Jan 29th 2012 2:09AM That's an idea for a later article! For now, this is the addon suite I use: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info14256-TheUltimateShamanUIv4.202-1920x1080169-WIDE.html
It has a screenshot on the side of all the addon files it comes with, and then I have a few more that I've added in to fit my fancies.
