will this be hitting live tomorrow?
I like all changes that pertained to me except the increased healing costs for Paladins.
Like the JP change, but don't really like the discovering change.
Ah, they had to nerf Mind Blast rs
Just when I thought we'd not see a repeat of "Moonkin Only" like in WotLK...It was very rare to see a Feral Druid (non tank) in RAID's on the server I play, cause getting decent DPS from feral was not as easy as with Balance. Bear Druids just popped STAM everywhere and tanked. The odd Feral would normally be near the low end of DPS. But I'll hold final judgment till after the new patch. I just can't see Feral DPS being any popular after it...The JP addition is rather welcome I'd say. The removal of Discovering the Instance is what sorta puts me off. You don't mind "discovering" Flight Paths... but Instance Portals you do? If you have time to go get the Flight Paths why not just take the short turn and get the portal too? If your in the area lvl'ing and gotten even 1 flightpath, lift your lazy rear and just get the portal too.
Well, it'll quiet some of the QQ about grinding dungeons for gear and whatnot. Seems like a pretty fair compromise to me overall. If people don't wanna earn faction rep or learn to group, they can flounder about until they get a clue or quit, IMO. I think Blizz goes pretty far in making the game accessible already. About the only thing they could do would be to offer some 'dungeon training' quests that give an achieve for completing as a req for higher-end dungeon content, to teach threat management, basic awareness of the fight, and CC mechanics.Stupid people would still be stupid, but at least they couldn't claim they didn't know what you were talking about and have a leg to stand on.
OK, so now about those frigging wands...Seriously, I've been grinding HCs for the last n days, to no avail. So I still have to stick with the lev. 316 wand I bought in AH one full month ago.Either I've been particularly unlucky, or there's definitely too few decent wands (only 2 at the moment for a DPS: Corla's Baton and Cookie's Stirring Rod ).Or maybe both things.And I think the 4k cap on JP is definitely too low: on my main I've already hit it several times and every time I risolved to spend JPs on heirlooms, even though I wasn't in particular need of them. Now I'm at 4k again and there's really nothing more I can buy, so I'll be wasting JPs until patch 4.1 comes out.I understand, Blizz don't want us to have a huge JP pool stored once items are scaled up (patch 4.1?), yet even with this in mind the 4k cap is making us waste lots of JPs, while I could use them, say, for my alts.
If you don't want to buy anything with JP, how exactly are you wasting them?Also, throwing weapons would like a word with you before you bring up wands. :P
Why not make it "discover the entrance on 1 character"?I didn't mind discovering the entrances once, but to do it a 2nd, 3rd and eventually a 4th time is just plain stupid.
