Sep 15th 2010 8:58PM Well it doesn't matter, since HW can't be used near CC'd targets. There are a lot of those now.
Current problems from my POV (and yes, I'm on the beta and have actually tested things):
- Holy Power isn't working out for our spec at all. It might get better with another source of generation but it just feels wrong. It's awesome for Ret, but not for tanking. Also there is no "choice" for what to spend our Holy Power on. We kinda need to use it all for threat unless we want mobs running around killing people.
- Our cooldowns are crappy. We have a barkskin clone (Divine Protection), a shield wall clone (Guardian of Ancient Kings) and the crap pile that is Ardent Defender. Sure it can prevent death, but you hardly use it like that in practice. We need another major cooldown.
- Our "rotation" is strange yet boring yet complex and not reactive at all. What was our role again? Tanking? There are strange gaps and it just feels wrong. You can get cooldown locked and not have a single ability for stray mobs in CC single target situations.
The ongoing feeling about the spec is that you don't have any control over what you are doing - be it needing a cooldown for "oh shit" moments or generally picking up adds and keeping them on you.
I really really hope they make some huge changes, because at the moment it's not fun at all.
Sep 15th 2010 8:37PM Seriously, have you done more than 5 minutes of research on this? You didn't even mention Guardian of Ancient Kings or the problems with Holy Power at the moment.

Jul 14th 2010 6:12PM The only thing I'm really concerned about is that it seems like we'll have to press Divine Plea every 15 secs to not go oom. This will fuck up any potential rotation royally and will be even more annoying that the current form. Sigh. Just give us passive mana regen already.

I got banned for naming my bear Pedobear (it had a really creepy smile!) I wouldn't name my pet anything slightly offensive.
Jul 14th 2010 12:10PM If you were ever banned, for say 3 hours for naming your hunter pet inappropriately, are you screwed from getting a beta key?
Jul 14th 2010 12:07PM As I understand it, it's kind of like the new Wintergrasp. Sometimes Alliance will have control over it and sometimes Horde.
