Oh man...I actually like how they are taking away the bonuses and having stats and talents (Plus whatever Path and Mastery gives you) to scale with what they would provide. It means things will focus more on CHARACTER development than "zomg lookit mah leet shiney new gearz!". Well...okay, people will still do that :P
Why do we really need the stat change i mean do kill what works and this is speaking from a guy whose tank healed and dpsedbut it just seems a little stupid to me. the only thing it will be good for is ap cause im really tired of haveing ap gems in my shammy rather then agi. But i think mp5 and ap also sp keep this alot from looking like every other game. I would also like to piont out that blizzard keeps changeing things in this game even more and more drasticly. for instance. bc changed how classes work from is you could heal you would heal in raid no exceptions. and if you were a warrior you tanked. bc changed by alowwing everyone to be able to dps. wrath changed spell dmg and the way we did rotations. fun fact: most changes ever where for pallys and shammys. but thats just the stats i really cant wait to try worgen!also how the hell does a tauren pally work? also a orc mage. it makes no sence. anyway i alsol like that there bringing back old world. also i think sargeras will come back i hope hed be a fun boss.
It's only temporary, so I can help Mal manage the blogs better :)Also, I guess I should add something to the Mastery section, as it made them more clear to me. Masteries are things that made you better at what you do. I take this for "Well, I do Physical DPS, so my Masteries are going to give me damage - somehow. Direct damage, more hit, more expertise, armor penetration - anything."
as every topic about the expansion got locked hereI see alot of plus to these changes. WIth them reworking the zones it makes it easier to do the quests. Or maybe even harder to do them but at the same time more fun to do them. Now I have to really pain myself even to do the quests they take so long runing over 50% of a zone if not more just to do 1 quest.Now that in itself seems small untill you get to Feralis or Tanaris when the zone is just effing HUGE it takes 4 to 5 mins to reach this quest zone. They made it alot easier in bc because they had maybe just the same amount of quest but they were spread out in different quest hubs and not just 1 quest hub but 4 of them and they only sent you to a specific part of that map and if they didn't there was a FP to anouther quest hub near it. I remember in just Hellfire you started in thrallmar and killed demons and orcs right in that one area. wow that don't sound long but then they had like 15 different kill orc and demon quests that changed every time. I loved it so much easier that if I go to tanaris now where there is what? 2 quest hubs 1 is not even really a quest hub more like a place to pick up 2 quests. They even expanded further with Wotlk making it even easier. I can really see with the new zones maybe more quest hubs this being 100% more fun and easier to lvl. Maybe this time they won't send you from 1 continent to the other just to do some quests.Drop xp needed all you want. now all they are doing is hurting good quest chains. If they want leave xp the way it is just make the quests more fun and easier to complete. NO MORE I WHERE THE ^&*! IS THE RAPTORS HEAD? Let said things be 100% drops I mean WTF how can a raptor not have a head or a lion not have a paw?
but still I can figure out hey this thing attached to the top of the raptor must be the head
fun, but again, too easyat least they dident say something about the new race/class combinations, so lets hops it stays like that
Too easy? They haven't said anything about reducing the difficulty of neither the existing content, nor the new one. In fact, I recall some zones becoming more difficult.
Big changes for hunters (and locks but I don't have a lock). The ammo change sounds good, but I don't like the sound of the focus and the revamping of abilities.
What? Battlegrounds will give arena-quality gear? Nice pvp gear, the one you consider an accomplishment. The one you worked hard for (unless you're a druid), will now just be given to anyone who grinds/afks battlegrounds? This isn't just an insult, it's a kick to the groin. No thanks, I'll just wait for SC2 or D3.Btw, to anyone expecting the expansion: All your long raiding/arena nights and hard work will be all erased with a blink of an eye. It's pointless to continue playing right now. But then again... was there ever a point in this game?
