Apr 12th 2011 11:58PM Yes well ofc i put my targets ahead of my ego and concentrate on the fight (and surviving it) rather than the meters. However, when you go over the meters at the end (and a lot of people do) it is disheartening to see that for all ur efforts you aren't as high up the charts as you would like. Now this isn't same for all fights, in chimaeron, shamans can shine with earthliving procs on low health targets, but for the most part I do feel somewhat lacking compared to other classes. And while charts shouldn't matter, most officers/ raidleaders base ur effectiveness in a raid by how much u can heal (you can call this bad practice but it is true for most guilds). If you can't heal as well as another class, then why bring you? (other than for mana tide seeing as mages hav TW and other totems can come from dps shams). If you say for raid heals, well a holy priest and resto druid can do just as good a job. Maybe I'm just feeling a little sore, as after the wonderful buff we received, the class is slowly being picked at and shrinking again little bit at a time. Maybe its in preparation for the (fingers crossed) OP spirit link totem.
Apr 12th 2011 11:20PM Meh getting a bit annoyed here at Blizz. The earth shield nerf is a bit of a kick in the teeth. They buffed us to bring us in line with other healers, yet a unique mechanic is nerfed, so we will have to spec out of other talents to bring the healin of ES up to near what it was (if you want to that is). I guess this is probably due to pvp. Played this class for years and soon as we start looking promising, the pvp-related QQ goes nuts and blizz respond. I pvp and while some ppl say we're OP, I find warriors/ DKs terrible cos of the stuns/ silences etc. If a class is strong, dnt nerf it, just alter ur playstyle to win. Basic problem solving!
What annoys me most is on healing charts, paladins and disc priests easily get 15-20k hps with relatively little effort. Yet i bust a gut healing (not overhealing) in large aoe dmg fights like nef HC and can only manage 12k or so on average. So remind me again, how is this fair?
Apr 9th 2011 11:04AM The Alliance symbol is a bit weak imo. The Lion theme has been over played in so many games, as well as flags and crests in countries such as England or France. But then, the Alliance races have very little imagination to them as well. There are tonnes of games (and fantasy books) where the "good guys" are always elves, dwarves and humans. The Worgen are really the only gritty race as such, but it doesn't escape the fact that the faction as a whole is a bit.... goodie-two-shoes to me. I have read the Warcraft books, I know the lore, and other than the dwarves, the horde stories are far more entertaining, and the races more likable BECAUSE they have come from seemingly bad backgrounds. Yes the trolls were savage, but they have also seen hard times and been persecuted by elves and humans. The Tauren would always have been horde as the Alliance did nothing to help them against the centaur, and lets face it, has had more than a few "racist" leaders who would view them as nothing more than beasts. The bloodelves were former allies of Lordaeron, but the Alliance didn't come to their aid when the Scourge attacked (Kael'thas Sunstrider has such a sad story), and Lady Sylvanas will not forget how they were abandoned. The Undead themselves tried to be united with their families again, but their loved ones were repulsed and refused to acknowledge them. They felt betrayed by their former allies and so you cannot blame them for hating the Alliance. The orcs, yes they drank from Mannoroth's blood and did unspeakable things, yet do not forget that they were tricked by Kiljaedon, a powerful being with control over the Buring Legion. And may I remind you that the Drenei, despite knowing they were being pursued by him since they left Eredar, failed to tell the orcs of an evil person who would try to trick them. The Drenei knew what he was capable of and yet said nothing. They didn't force the orcs to butcher them ofc, but they must be held somewhat accountable for the fact that they knew KJ would find them eventually (as he had many times before) and kill them. If they had made some sort of contact with the orcs, maybe it wouldn't have happened (and also maybe apologise for crashing a ship into their ancestoral grounds, Oshu'gun).
