Just me or the Hairy Armadillo model doesn't look hairy at all?
I'm guessing they're going to change the model of those arena helms?
Heroic Cookie's Tenderizer.Welp, guess my DK's going Frost and my Warrior is going Single-Minded Fury.
Are all relics/idols/totems becoming nothing but stat sticks now?
Most models for higher-level gear (ilvl 300+) are just placeholders.
that is crazy what r we goin to do with r weapons then use them for toothpicks
Does anyone know what the requirements will be for the Vicious Gladiator gear? Obviously you'll need level 85 but what arena / rated BG rating etc?
I really liked how Relics were unique for your class and each Relic did something interesting. I feel that a lot of uniqueness is lost that way.Also, I really, really hope a lot of those models are placeholders. I saw some vids of people doing dungeons too, and it was as if they were walking around in Wotlk leveling gear... that must be a mistake. If they aren't placeholders and they're actually going to release with those models, it'd be a new low lol (and I'd definitely quit, because recycled models is really, really FTL, it ruins my enjoyment of the game completely).
I agree also with the relics, to an extent, but I also understand Blizzard's reasoning with this change.Before, relics would boost a certain ability. For some classes/specs, depending on how you play, relics could easily be useless to you. It was like having a really strong glyph. Take Holy paladins for example. Unless you were geared/specced for Flash of Light spam, (in which case you'd use a PvP Libram, as far as I know,) your BiS libram was the Emblem of Heroism libram. You can't tell me that's good design.There were also issues with, say, tank balance (though minor.) Warriors got a few extra stats through their Gun, whereas the other tanks got ability boosts. It balances more or less, but again, if you happen to have a playstyle (or something like that) that doesn't take advantage of your Relic, then you're losing the benefit, and having a stat-stick would be more attractive.Also, they must be random placeholders. Did you look at the Defias Brotherhood Vest? It looks like the Dark Arctic Leather chestguard made by leatherworkers. If they don't give that the defias ninja model, they'll be in for a crapstorm. On that note, wtb level 85 Blackened Defias armor for me rogue.
Is it me, or does PvP gear already suck. I sure hope those are placeholders.
I agree, but if you want to keep everyone happy, then you either have to make dozens of extra Relics (more than one for each SPEC, probably looking at 6 or more per class) or make each Relic OP.Don't get me wrong, it's a boring solution, but I think Blizzard wants to avoid having tons of different relics for various types of situations. Also, it may just be temporary until they can get something more developped off the ground. Blizzard has a habit of putting in boring "band-aid" solutions for things they plan to flesh-out more later.
I hope so. I really do.Maybe even a relic system similar to how the ICC rings worked, though perhaps not based around rep. But then again, maybe based around rep with some kind of Druid clan.Rogue's to get scaling ninja-star's based around rep with Ravenholdt?They could also have an 'On Use' ability at Revered and above which teleports them straight to the rep HQ or something.
That is a very, very good idea! Listen to that Blizzard ^^Scaling items, maybe 3 different for each class. (and if the amount of items is a problem, just chuck out things like Arcane Robe :P)
