those battleground changes look a bit iffy at first glance, but I would imagine it would improve things in the long run, no ? I mean, you might be queuing for longer for an AV, but at least the fight will always be full when it finally does get going :sOk, so maybe those nights where you used to lazily farm a few kills in an imbalanced AV will be totally gone ( I sorta used to enjoy those in a tired "I cant be arsed to put the effort in" sort of way :P ), but correct me if i'm wrong on this, with a smaller choice in BGs to queue for, it means there won't be people queuing for 4 places, going to 1 and not opting to leave the space they have in the queue for the others, ( which uses up a space in the BG for a while, while there might be someone next in line whos pumped and ready to go instantly ), if my understanding of the queue system is correct, which it might not be, this would theoretically speed queuing up ? ... at least as long as you know where you want to go, it'll suck if your indescicive and spend forever thinking "which 2 will I choose ? D:"
AV Battleground xp nerfed. I now get 8k xp per cap/kill instead of 18k xp in the 71-80 (well, now it's 70-79) bracket.
Lame lame patch. A "new" raid, buff-in-a-can, and a few minor changes. I'm disappointed.
Guess we have to wait till the next patch for blacksmithing specialization plans...
...but where do I get the new leatherworking patterns. D: Are they drops? Do I buy them? Train them?
So, I just got back from MMO-Champion.Why the Hell is it, with gear, that Blizzard feels the need to take two steps forward, and three steps back, when it comes to gear and its' artwork?http://db.mmo-champion.com/static/img/screenshots/item/screenshot_49477.jpgLook at that. ^&*!ing -look- at that. Onyxia's going to be easy as Hell, so you KNOW everyone's going to do it.Say what you will about the lack of "diversity" between gear in WOTLK, atleast it was well designed and detailed. It was a HUGE step up from the gear in Classic and the Start of BC. We got hints of the future at the end of BC, in the Gladiator Gear and Sunwell.Then, we get this. I don't care how damn good the stats are for any of these pieces, I do NOT want to be strutting around Dalaran, toe to neck in awesome, detailed Northrend Gear, with this technicolor, goofy bull&*!@ on my head.Come ON, Blizzard. You updated the Arcanite Reaper (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=42319), why can't you work your magic here?
Then for a limited time, after the 5-year anniversary event officially begins in November, anybody who logs in will receive an Onyxia Brood Whelpling pet.So is this open now or in November?
Upated Judgement helm ftw.I also dont see the problem with the leatherworking buffs, it adds something to the skill and its not as good as the real thing, therefore just a substitute.Personally as a Ret paladin i get insulted when i get asked to BoK people.Why did i bother spending points in the BoM upgrade if you just want BoK?Leatherworkers, i salute you!...whilst giggling at the crybabies :3
im gonna love this patch especialy since i run onyxia all the time hope her new abilities dont clober me =)
gg got my judgement heal helm first try.
LW's 8% stats buff is a decent balance with BoK. Fort in a Can is aimed at preventing people quitting Inscription because, like Enchanting, it's no longer a cash cow.People are dropping all three for BS and JC, without doubt.Armor/Weaponsmithing's top ilvl BoPs fell by the wayside with sharpening/weightstones when BS got extra prismatic sockets.The 3.2.2 prof buffs help mitigate for the shortage of raiding priests and the exclusion of all other classes at the expense of paladins and druids. Blizzard would rather buff anything else then nerf those two hybrids and risk losing paying customers to other games.It would be nice if Blizzard could get a handle on the low dps being done by prot warriors and even fury utility builds.As OP hybrids increasingly dominate tanking, fury warriors are expected to top dps charts while maintaining five stacks of sunder armor and shattering throw - and putting as many as 12 talent points into shouts to increase their length, strength, aoe and duration.Great to have ArPen nerfed, so the paladins, druids and DKs can rofl a bit more at the gimped dps in plate. Bring the player, not the warrior to raid? Back to PvP I guess...Fearghail - Barthilas - Oceanic
