News Round Up: Latest Hotfixes (August 10), Blizz on Character Limits
2011/08/10 at 11:04 PM
Latest hotfixes have been posted, including a previously undocumented change to the dailies for the
, which were hotfixed with the patch earlier this week. Instead of one elemental spawning, three now spawn; this should make getting the achievement way easier as many people still didn't have it (despite doing the dailies every day). It was completely RNG and some servers didn't even have an elemental switch yet.
Latest Hotfixes (8/10)
Applicable death knight abilities are now using the correct amount of resources (and putting them on cooldown) when there are 4 Death Runes available and the Unholy Runes are depleted.
Druids that shapeshift will now clear the
Potion of Illusion
is no longer penalized by Resilience more than once, nor can it gain double benefit from
Dungeons & Raids

In other more pertinent news, San Diego Comic Con was this weekend and there was a big Blizzard presence. Chris Metzen showed up with a panel of Blizzard writers and partners; there was a general presentation on the future of Blizzard's licensed products including comics and merchandise then there was an open question session where fans were able to ask Metzen about anything and everything from World of Warcraft.
His answers hinted towards Thrall's saga not being done yet--a possible return as warchief may be in the cards--and also a new focus on alliance in future novels. To help balance out the recent focus on horde, the next novel will be about Jaina Proudmoore. Check out
the transcript and video up at BlizzPlanet
as well as a more in-depth summary.

Leveling 201: A Guide to More Enjoyable Leveling
2011/07/17 at 9:46 AM
Leveling in Cataclysm is easy; but with all the additions, there's bound to be something surprising, whether you're a veteran or on your first alt. For better or for worse, Cataclysm has streamlined questing--but has also featured alternative ways to gain experience if questing becomes tedious on your 5th alt. Personally, I've leveled toons numerous ways: a rogue to 85 through questing on the first day of the xpac, a warlock in legacy epics through mining, a priest in full BoAs primarily through instances, a rogue strictly through herbalism, and a DK questing in half-BoAs. I've got a mage at 62 that's currently done a lot of LFD, but outpacing the quests for particular zones drives her crazy with the lore and consistent plot lines. I have friends that wait for Alterac Valley weekend for leveling, another that leveled a toon through LFD with 0 quests completed on purpose, and some insane guildmates that have leveled multiple toons through Archaeology in the hopes of getting an elusive epic (cough,
Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds
) for their mains. Big thanks to Psynister for his expert leveling advice!
Once you hit 85, all the new Justice Point gear, Molten Front dailies, and Firelands rep farming await, so let's highlight all the ways you can get th
Ask the Devs #11: Healing
2011/07/15 at 12:16 PM
Ask the Devs #11 was posted and this time it's all about healing. As someone who has played a healer since vanilla, I probably have too many opinions here so I'll let you guys do most of the reading--overall, there are some good questions, especially the one about Holy priest viability in top PvE content, but the answers aren't necessarily the best. And while Mana Tide is brought up, they don't talk much about how currently many guilds bring a Resto shaman in over another class solely for that buff.
I spend a lot of my time in raids keeping Water Shield up, which I rely on to maintain enough mana. There have been times I've neglected to heal someone because I had to refresh Water Shield. Why are shaman healers less effective compared to other healing classes? – Epistemology (NA), Ерз (EU-RU)
We’d like to be more consistent about what does and doesn’t trigger Water Shield. Having the shield trigger when taking direct damage, and consume an orb, is consistent with how all shaman shields work. On some encounters though, constant pulsing damage probably burns through those charges too quickly and doesn’t need
