After Wrathgate, I just can't play forsaken anymore.
ty zarhym for the info on season 10 gear disaster. :)
You know, after wrathgate i still love my forsaken DK. Dare I say, I like forsaken more... Just solidifies the fact that the forsaken are only using the horde as a stepping stone. Even if Putress was a traitor.
Are you being a little dramatic¨which is actually the same season 9 gear with massively increased stats.'The gear upgrade from what people bought last week with honor compared to what they can buy this week is half a tier. Serious pvpers are swamped in honor the same way most serious pvers don´t have much need for JP (other than BOEs) already. Players who ground out honor last week to buy the items, are now going to be grinding conquest to replace them... while the main mission is to get conquest, they will also be getting a ton of honor, which they can upgrade some pieces with the new honor gear. The end result is in a few days, some players may have an item or two that is half a tier below ´what they should have´. But most importantly, in a week, nobody is going to be doing anything important with the honor.It was definitely silly of Blizzard to bump both tiers up.. but there is no real competitive advantage since people who didn´t spend honor last week were capped at 4k anyway. I am in that group. I didnt spend my honor last week, so now I can have 2 pieces of gear that are half a tier above what someone has who did buy last week? big deal.. i will still get owned.
And once again strip the fun in sake of balanceCant steal lava flows? lol? Why even bother then; why they alter spellsteal mechanic only for this one skill? messCant stealth in FL? wtf? I thought stealth is perk, not the curse to be punished for. Her's a cookie, you can look at it or throw it around but you cant eat it. We all have to be equal! If you cant have fun so do others! F****** brilliant....
Wait... people still play forsaken? Geez pick a real race :3 like goblins haha.
I'm trying to buy one of the season 9 ranged weapons for my hunter since I wasn't fortunate enough to have any drop in my 10 man group so far (I'm using a heroic dungeon blue currently). I keep getting an error saying I still need to earn 4XXX more honor points before I can even purchase that piece, even though I have the required honor to buy it. So it's like I have to purchase something ELSE before I reach the 4000 cap, then keep farming them until I once again have enough honor points to buy the season 9 ranged weapon? So does this mean I have to farm so many honor points in the current PVP season before last seaons gear can be purchased? The game isn't very clear on this.
Regarding race - there are certain times when I'm glad I play a Dwarf as a tank, a Draenei as a healer, or an Undead for pvp. Certain racial abilities DO end up being a little more useful in some situations than others (Stoneform is a godsend, not only for the 10% damage reduction but also the poison/disease/bleed dispel.) But I still feel that despite the advantage they offer, it isn't enough to make one race decidedly better than others.
@Hotfixes: Lol, I saw the Lava Flows nerf coming (Mages being unable to benefit)@PvP Gear stuff: That also makes obsolete the purpose of doing battlegrounds on honor capped characters for a week... =( I'd just prefer the "new" Season gear to be...:-Implemented immediately, with the point conversion happening when the season starts only (meaning it would probably happen one week after a patch release, in this case).-Implement the Honor purchaseable gear when the patch hits and implement the Conquest purchaseable gear later if the season starts after the patch.-Boost the bloody point cap?@Racials:Don't have anything to say. I stopped taking part in that QQ long ago.
Also remember, that the day this went live, those pvpers were doing things for conquest points, so probably were getting a ton of honor on the very first day. While they are pvping that first day in their full sets, they are competing against people like me who have 1 or 2 pieces of the new gear, but also don´t have the remaining old pieces (because we didn´t spend out honor last week). It is a wash... we have a few pieces above theirs, but the majority below. The people complaining and doing the analysis are taking an absolute worst case scenerio (that people who bought the honor gear last week were in nothing but that gear) and comparing it to someone who went into this week ´magically´ in the new full honor gear on tuesday. On tuesday, I did not start with the new full honor gear.. I started with 2 pieces.... my other 16 pieces were BELOW what the people who did spend their honor last week have. I bet even today, there are still very few people who have all the new honor gear.... and the people who spent all their honor last week?... they probably have almost the same number of peices.It was annoying that it wasn´t announced, and it is a bit annoying because of gems and enchants... but the cost of enchants is dismal right now.
I had collected various points to go into the patch with the maximum amount of honor points only to find all my conquest points converted to gold. I don't need to gold, I would have rather have had the honor. Then I find that the 365 gear is obsolete now. If I had known that, I would not have bothered collecting the points in the first place. I was doing heroics and converting points, not grinding BGs, nor did I enchant/gem my gear but a lot of people did.I hope Blizzard learns from their recent SNAFU, it's unlike them and their customers expect better.The Lava Flows change is good, as it stood it was penalizing Shamans for having the talent, not benefiting them.
Nothing of interest here.Now if they said that Frost DK's were bugged and generated more aggro than intended... I'd be a happy tank.
CRAAAAAP I spent a ton of honor points this week, now the stuff that is available is better, less than 1 week after I bought it. Ok Blizz, I am the customer and I am cranky! Whatcha gonna do about it? Give us the same song and dance, working as intended or just plain old STFU we don't care?You shoulda told us! For me as a PVP'r every little bit helps. Give us some love now or risk losing us to Star Wars the Old Republic with prejudice!
