Spiritual Guidance: Hymns get revamped {WoW}

Mar 15th 2009 7:00PM Yeah, it sounds to me like the Mana Pool increase serves no direct purpose on its own... But if those targets are ALSO getting a Replenishment benefit, then they will get increased returns from Replenishment while the Hymn is active, no?

BigRedKitty: Crab, Cat, and Serpent {WoW}

Oct 6th 2008 12:46PM While your points are valid, consider that those concerns matter to EVERY class. So what about Hunters makes them unique from every other DPS class? That would be Pets, and thus, that is why people like to talk about them.

What made people choose to play a Hunter vs. say a Mage, or a Rogue, or whatever? Odds are it was because the Pet concept was appealing and satisfying.

The Devs could address EVERY concern that you have, and "fix" every issue, but if alongside that they said "And Pets will go away" or even just "And now there will be ONE pet, with one graphic, a random name, and identical stats" people would go ballistic. Because to them the concept of unique pets is so integral to what they want out of the class.

Breakfast Topic: The simplification of the game {WoW}

Sep 29th 2008 8:43AM By simplification he means streamlining and homogenizing mechanics. All casters are going to rely on the same stats, all Tanks rely on the same stats, etc. There won't be an obvious difference between say "Warrior Tanking Plate" and "Tankadin" Plate because in Wrath they'll rely on the same stats.

In theory gone will be stuff like "For encounter X you need 2 of class Y and 3 of class Z, and class A is worthless" -- Now it will be very much open by role Tank, DPS, Healer should all be fully homogenized. A War is not better than a DK, a Priest not better than a Dru, a Mage not better than a Lock, etc.

Ask a Beta Tester: More on mounts and other things {WoW}

Sep 26th 2008 11:38AM I could see some possible strategic value in PvP. Nothing more annoying then getting sapped by a Rogue while your teammates keep riding away. Now a squad of 4 will roll up simultaneously when the mount poofs.

Forum post of the day: Honor, glory, and coercion {WoW}

Sep 26th 2008 9:19AM And Raid groups never carry alts or undergeared people who barely make a difference and give them the loot amirite?

Is PvP challenging? Sometimes.
Is Raiding challenging? Sometimes.

Raid bosses drop the same loot whether you barely beat the encounter or have it on farm. The fact that Raiders can "farm" certain bosses implies that it is of inconsequential difficulty, yet they can get shiny lootz!

Now, do I believe that PvP and Raiding are the same? No. And I think Blizzard is trying to come up with a happy medium. But PvP isn't always "easy," and Raiding isn't always "hard."

Ask a Beta Tester: Championing clarification, raiding, and more {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2008 3:27PM I think it was meant as the means to get the Alterac Valley specific mount?

Ask a Beta Tester: Of penguins and paladins {WoW}

Aug 27th 2008 11:33AM OK, oh-great-sage... what part of the world are Quillboars found in?

Hint: This is a fanstasy world, not Earth.

Alt Text just short of the real bribe {WoW}

Aug 22nd 2008 3:11PM All true, Mike... But the Bribe part is for the Recruiter... Besides a Zhevra, they get Free Time on their account, triple XP with their friend, and free levels from their friend.

It is a Pyramid type scheme, that works :-p

This is a very fast rug {WoW}

Aug 13th 2008 1:44PM That is more than likely a requirement for Artisan level Tailoring skill, not Riding Skill.

New tailoring recipes discovered in Wrath Beta files {WoW}

Aug 11th 2008 4:13PM Sounds to me like this is the Tailor version of the Enchanter Only Ring Enchants.

Maybe they will give Blacksmiths Smith Only Belt Enchants as belt buckles next.
