Aug 10th 2007 3:19PM Yes. To all of it.
I'm still a little concerned about death tanks... not as competition of tanks... but rather how they will tank. The obvious answer is through LARGE amounts of parry. Parry will be to the Death Knight what block is to us prot pallies and warriors. And as any good tank will tell you, parry is behind dodge as the preferred damage mitigation, and it's not really as useful for getting uncrushable as block is. I can't see how Death Knights will get uncrushable without a shield.... a parrying feral druid? Not exactly my idea of a good time.
I know my sever has a shortage of tanks (and healers but i hear complaints of lack of tanks more actually). As a prot pally, I'd like to see warrior get a little more versatility for 5 mans, and i'd like to have a little more versatility on bosses. Fact is, I've never seen a prot warrior put up even 1/2 of the damage I do while tanking. On five mans dungeons, that damage adds up, and it's a heck of a lot of threat I'm generating. Yet, I know on bosses I'm left waiting when I'm silenced, or wishing I had anything I could do against spell damage (paladins are terrible against magic casting bosses). Not to mention I simply don't have an answer to a warrior's shield block abilities (imho the real problem with prot. paladin lies with a talent called redoubt, among other small things).
I like that each tank has something different to offer, but at the same time, I hope blizzard can balance it so that we can all tank differently, but all be as good as each other on different things. Should I have the same kind of mitigation as a warrior? No. But maybe I just need a little bit more. And while you do that, up the damage prot warriors can do. As much a prot. paladin? No. But maybe just a little more. :D

Paladin: "Wow, that has got to hurt!"
Paladin Trainer: "Only if he's under 20% health. Otherwise it just dazes him."
Rogue Trainer: "You know what's better than one knife?"
Rogue: "...go on..."
Rogue Trainer: "Two knives."
Rogue: "You... just... BLEW... my mind."
Jul 28th 2007 12:49PM I think any new class would have to be a tank.
There's 4 jobs that can main heal.
4 jobs dedicated to just dps and cc, as well as specs designed to increase dps.
and only 3 tanking jobs/specs.
WoW is already very dps heavy, and i know with a new tank job warriors will cry like crazy, paladins will have a harder time convincing ppl that we're probably the best 5 instance tanks, and druids will be quiet and get buffed.
Another healing job might not hurt, just cause it might draw someone new to try healing. and nobody argues with more healing.
But I think a new tanking job would be very cool. I have my own ideas for that, but that's neither here nore there.
Jul 26th 2007 4:24AM Here's an idea Mike. If the article is about spotting what spec they are, do yourself a favor and just write the "how to spot" part. After that, all you're doing is re-enforcing stereotypes that don't need to be reinforced.
Seriously, I don't care if you think I can't tank because i'm a prot pally. Different article.

Record Label Producer: "All though it pains me to say this, only one of you will be invited to join the Village People..."
Jul 10th 2007 12:40PM For those with reading imperiments (I'll give you a minute to mull that one over):
Nightmares Asylum wasn't raiding kara. If you read, they prolly have no interest in kara. Clockwork was the guild raiding Kara.
Nightmare stepped in, and stood up for Clockwork. Clockwork, a guild not far in progression, invited the DI member into kara.
Anyways, this is hilarious. I don't believe in karma, what happened was good old vigilante justice. DI thought they could get away with slapping the new guys, and then the sheriff came in and slapped them.
