Jul 1st 2011 6:07AM I've always considered SV something with affinity to rogues'subtlety tree. From this POV i 'd like to see some kind of "surprise attack" for the SV tree, but how could it be used once in combat (we do not want a talent that'd be used only once per fight unless it was super saucy awesome, and if it was just an opener it'd end up being a sniper shot that belongs better to MM.
So here's the idea: if you stop shooting your target for -let's say- 3-4 seconds and channel this "diversive" ability instead, your enemy's attention will be diverted from you, and you will be able to release a very powerful surprise shot at the end of the channel. This would be possible while moving and thus would become either an alternative to fox-shooting during movements or just a complement to it since it'd have an average cooldown, let's suppose something ranging from 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Obviously this "surprise attack" damage should be somewhere between a decent fox-shooting rotation and the normal rotation if it was to be used during movement phases only, or even more if it was ment to be used on cooldown. If the damage was high enough it would introduce the planning factor: "is it best used on cooldown or spared for the next movement phase?"

Mar 4th 2011 10:16AM I have all then characters slot used up, with 2 hunters and a character of each class at least at level 80, apart from my shammy-bank still floating around level 40, and the missin class: the druid.
I tried the druid. She laid in a fountain in moonglade around lvl 20, before i deleted her.
I should probably have given it a few more levels, a better chanche to get a grip on me, but I just could not get a feeling of how to use its capabilities.. It felt like a pajamas with three legs and three sleeves.. i couldn't fit in it without leaving some parts limp and feeling uncomfortable.
I did roll another druid on some other server later... i think i left her around level 10..
Jan 31st 2011 6:55AM In the last monts of Wrath i was running daily randoms on a few alts to grind the epic gear that was so easy to obtain by just heroic badges.
One day i logged on my lock and joined the queue, and a few minutes later i was at the entrance of Gundrak together with a random group of guys from other servers. Since players were already so overgeared for heroics, it took less than a minute to get rid of the first boss, the snake one... but as we started gathering at the entrance of the second room - the one with water and groups of three snakes - we realized that the tank and a dk were not with us anymore.
We noticed that those two (who were from the same guild) had jumped into water from the first boss'terrace and were swimming to skip i don't even know what. I had not known that way before, but the rest of us resigned to follow them anyway. No point in questioning too much, and after all dpsers had a 10-15 minutes of queue for instances.
The tank and his fellow, which never dreamed to ask if we wanted to skip bosses or what, neither gave a word nor waited for us, and when we tried to follow them, the three of us clothies were eaten up by piranhas in the lake. When we ran back in and asked the tank to wait for us and help us cross the pond, they just told us to leave, and that they'd have done better alone without the rest of us.
We soon realised that there was no way to reason with the two of them, so the healer and the mage rsolved to leave. As for me i was pissed, and determined not to get the diserter debuff that would have prevented me from joining the queue again, so i ran back in again and thanks to the demonic pet and my turbo-boosted engineered boots managed to reach the tank and the dk as they approached the last stairway before the final boss.
When they saw i had caught up they ordered me to leave, not sparing some pretty verbal abuse, and declared that they'd have rather waited a couple minutes to be able to kick me instead. I was still resolved not to leave, since being kicked I would at least have been able to queue again immediately. Of course i explained them that i'd have been more than happy to leave if it wasn't for the diserter debuff, but they still blamed and insulted me, so i welcomed them to do as they pleased.
There i was in front of the boss with the two of them apparently afk or just waiting for the countabck to the moment when the "vote to kick" option would have been available, when i got the evil idea to at least cause some mess. I /ignored the two adorable fellows, backed out of the boss zone that would have been closed up on pull and sent my felguard in.
Gal'darah cutted it into mincemeat in a few seconds, then got the dk which was shut inside the fight zone, and then came out through the fence for me. I let he kill quickly so that he could turn to the tank who was actually outside the fence, but also seemed to be afk. Then i waited for the two to finally kick me and just queued again and had my daily done with a group of decent mannered guys.
I think that was the only time i had a very bad run, that didn't left me in very bad mood. My only regret is that they couldn't see the smile on my face.
