Armored bat flying mount, FINALLY BLIZZARD! THANK YOU
1. Removed2. Removed What's so special about bats? That there are none in game? A tail-less 5.1 armored wyvern. High five. Why maybe you also want a shirt with a big "S" on it?3. Another money-sinker mount? Hello, Blizzard, do you expect us to blow chinese gold sellers by buying all their gold? Where in the blazing blue Removed does an AVERAGE player has to get gold for at LEAST all JC mounts? Not to mention that a single current retarded rocket costs like 4 panthers(+-). 100k Yak? And please don't expect me to believe that an epic BoE HELICOPTER(the sole reason engi is hated since TBC) will cost some mere laughable 100k to make(sarcasm intended). At the very least it could be around TCG-mount prices of 100-200k.Of course, the more WoW lives, the more gold is farmed. And in WotLK one affordable bike was enough, with dedicated money sinker mamnoths(partially including Hodir ones). In Cata this duty was left to single Sandstone Drake, which only costed twice more than a hog. Also affordable due to new gold gains. Now what do we have? A single panther isnt a problem, obviously, but 4 of them? To make 5th? And then remake 4? Even if you stick to Onyx, that's 80k. That's 4 times more than sandstone drake. Rockets? 70-80k, that's 7 times more than the bike, and there are two available. Yak? 5 times(almost 6 with discount) more than mammoth.To collect all these "non-$" "obtainable" mounts, a single person must have over 400k gold(compared to ~30k WotLK and same 30k Cata). Sure, I know such people. I know it's possible. But why does WoW have to become Diablo 3? Where you buy your way from level 1 to plvl100 with gold and gold alone? Last time I checked, WoW had much more things to do than farming gold, and isn't that what Blizzard has been Removed our minds with in MoP? How generous...Add this "Sky Claw", new inflated pet battle market, and these 400k will become 600-700k. And that's middle-expansion. Way to go...4. As for the DK part - haven't all DKs been playing frost? Solely because unholy does not scale and takes much more effort than it's worth? But no, this 4p bonus is not intended to be official tunnel into frost, as somebody has mentioned that unholy soul reaper deals initially more damage.What this 4p bonus is intended to do - is fix the useless Soul Reaper for one tier. Yay, we can actually squeeze some SR in execution period. Yay, we can actually not be afraid to have our KM overwritten(as always does anyway) when we prio SR over Obli just for the rune cost. Woopie Removed do! This 4p bonus has made ability usable and interesting. Sure, it has be gone later. Many classes have had such "moments of truth" with their tier talents. Maybe later Blizzard will implement it as a basic ability fix.
I still don't understand my mistweaver...through trial and error I found back row healing much better, but now they're buffing my damage. I guess I'm going to have to go front row?Exactly what I was thinking - I like the back row healing as well. But lookie! Crackling Jade Lightning got the same 100% buff.I can dig it.
I think in addition to adding a new branch to Archaeology, they need to add more rares to the Mogu and Pandaren branches.
Jeez, 5.2 is looking more awesome with every update.
The weapons with Sha - Touched Sockets are good and all... but what about a Tank gem? 750 Stamina?
The weapons with Sha - Touched Sockets are good and all... but what about a Tank gem? 750 Stamina?The tank gem is the one that has a chance to reduce the damage you take by 20% after getting hit.Also, I'm guessing the capacitating gem will end up working on ranged hits too, it is PTR after all so some of these descriptions are still a WIP.
I guess ill stick to my solo pve role, farming questing pet battling and auctioning....
Three cheers for the new Engineering 2-seater! And that bat model up there leads me to think that we could also be seeing a bat mount sometime soon - I remember reading something where a dev answered a guy asking for a bat mount by saying that there won't be one until they make a new bat model... I can't recall where I read that, but I know I did...New bat model = bat mount? We can hope...Woops, there is actually a new bat mount, with an item and everything - I didn't look carefully enough, silly me.
Oh my god yes! Finally a bat mount, yes, yes, yes!
Not sure if it's a new thing or I've just successfully missed it until now, but the way those changed spell tooltips show both the 'old' and 'new' versions of the spells on mouseover is absolutely amazing! Mega props to whoever came up with that.
And now Blizz make PvP pll raid to get good meta gem? I mean really? Just to clarify something on this:You don't need to RAID-raid, all the current stuff can be done in LFR. Also, the quest line from 5.1 includes winning BGs and so forth, so me, a PvEer, is "forced" to PvP for my awesome PvE gem upgrade. I've not seen the definitive list of quests for 5.2's section yet, but overall it has seemed pretty balanced between having to do group PvE (LFR, that boss dude in Karasang), soloable PvE (Valor can be raids or dailies), and PvP (BGs including that hideous Mines one!). In short, you can have zero PvE gear, have no friends who want to PvE, and still get there, just like I with my lack of PvP gear and skill could struggle through the PvP segments. It just requires time (6 weeks of valor capping made me cry) and effort, and to be honest for something that's meant to be legendary, putting in a bit of time and effort shouldn't be whine-worthy. Yes, it's a pain to 'have' to do a part of the game you don't like to remain competitive in the part you do - it nearly destroyed me having to PvP, but if I didn't my PvE performance would suffer, same as you opposite way around - but it's by no means undoable or unreasonable.
I think in addition to adding a new branch to Archaeology, they need to add more rares to the Mogu and Pandaren branches.Seconded...I was actually kind of dissapointed when I realised there were only 4 new archaeology rares added and none of them all that epic...

They prevented that by making heroic dungeon quality instead.I just wish they added more to it and as well to the older races. Theres a lot that could be done and i really like how pristine solves work and maybe someday they could apply that to the older races. I have a thread about it on the forums but i wont go more into detail. All that matters is that at least arch is getting some love.
They... they nerfed growl... -slowly walks to a noose-
3 different color carps as companions... are you kidding me? Come on Blizz give us something kool like... I don't know... a Shark Maybe? but 3 carps... lame.More mounts, awesome. Finally you heard our prayers. I mean, Cataclysm ony had raid drop mounts, Meta mounts and the re-skin of ZG and ZA bear and raptor. But now... is finally getting interesting. These new mounts don't come even close to my all-time favorites but is nice to see variety. Direhorns IMO are winning so far. The new thundering serpent.... meh. Its jus a zapped version of the blue one. The bat looks horribly kool :PI hope Blizz keeps working on some of the new tier's bonus set pieces. DPS Monk's for example... energy spheres... not kool, and not very useful either.I was looking forward to see a Zandalari Golem Boss style companion... now that is an awesome model.All in all, Blizz is doing a fine job with the patches. Tons of more content that in the Cata equivalents. Lots of stuff to do, collect and kill. Keep it up guys. :D
Why the heck would they nerf Flash & Binding Heal by so freakin' much? Who complained?Seriously, and pally heal changes seem to equate to a buff. Precisely what was needed. Yup.
Holy balls look at those frogs!
Why did they add the energy requirement for SHS? It's not like Brewmasters have extra energy to spend :/
