woohoo Faerie dragon mount! my favorite pet is becoming a mount ^_^
YES! Cat form shifting once again removes movement impairing effects. Removing that was one of the worst decisions Bliz ever made, and I'm so glad to see them rectify part of it.
What's with the frost Death Knight and the frost Mage buffs? Last time I checked they each were doing fine. Frost mages are at the top of the dps in game and so are frost DKs.
Ooooohhh, very curious about the third spec. And that faerie dragon looks awesome as well :D
Still no love for Alchemist. No Trinket... sad face.
Not gonna lie, that 200 mount achievement seems pretty difficult to get now.Really? I just hit 173 yesterday, and there is a guild mate who is at 198 right now. Not as hard as you'd think, since the counter counts both Horde and Alliance mounts for the overall total.It doesn't count towards the achievement though. When I look mine up on the armory it says I have 106 (hence both ally and horde) but the achievement only says I have 88.And no I don't have either dragonhawk mount
"Stop moving.""I'm trying to kill you."Now that is funny. :)
There's something really off about these patch notes. I'm mainly thinking about the monk dmg increase. Our stance goes from increasing dmg by 10% to 30%. That's a 20% buff to all monk damage. I'm not gonna whine about monks having high or low damage, but if Blizz really thinks that monk dmg needs a 20% buff, then why didn't they do it in 5.2? If monks truly were 20% weaker than intended, then it shouldn't have been hard to see. A 20% buff is quite probably the biggest buff I've ever seen and it has only been 2-3 weeks since last time they buffed us. Something is really off here.
Oh look! The two top specs, Frost Mage and Frost DKs, are getting buffs! Check out DPS rankings - Frost Mages #1 Caster spec, 2nd in Multi-DoTs where Afflic Locks win. Frost DKs #1 Melee spec, since Warrior nerfs they have held this position.Meanwhile, Priests are getting all their healing buffs from 5.2 taken away. Their passive looks like it's being changed to a CD. That means we'll do crud healing unless we're on a CD. I don't even know what that's for.
The Worse Robot (red robot thing under new 3d models) is clearly based off of the mascot for the company Bad Robot. It looks just like it, not to mention the name. Also, on it's back it has what looks like an Icee, which the Bad Robot mascot is often depicted drinking.
Raging Blow 100 yard range, costs no rage and is instant cast? Seems a little overpowered. In PvP: "I'm going to flee because its a warrior with no range. Whats this? A 100 yard range melee attack?" While people should fear warriors because they are just superior in every way, this must be a mistake. But if not......it looks like we found a new best class.
Herbalists and Miners, as stated in Friday's patch notes, can now gather with low skill in Pandaria for fragments like Kyparite Fragment and Rain Poppy Petal.Oh. My. Gawd. This is gonna suck donkeyballs :O It's not like competition for GIO isn't going to go up with the changes to BS leveling and now Lightning Steel Ingots... a bunch of low-level miners harvesting veins for scraps is just what we needed. ;)Too early to tell what will happen to class balance, but triple-spec... awesome! About friggin' time! :D My druid(s) will love it! Hope it's not too much of a gold sink though...
Not gonna lie, that 200 mount achievement seems pretty difficult to get now.Really? I just hit 173 yesterday, and there is a guild mate who is at 198 right now. Not as hard as you'd think, since the counter counts both Horde and Alliance mounts for the overall total.Only on the Armoury, as far as the mount collection achievements are concerned it only counts the highest number of mounts that a character has, regardless of faction.All of my Alliance and Horde Warlocks, Paladins and Death Knights show 109 mounts in their mount journal, while all of my other Alliance and Horde characters show 107 mounts. My mount collection achievement shows I'm currently at 109/150, so the in-game achievement DOES NOT count both Alliance and Horde mounts.EDIT: Forgot to add that the Armoury shows my characters to have collected a total of 155 mounts.
please note that these arent official announcements and are from data mining and thus can be very innaccurate, redundant, already outdated or plain broken.
Looking good. Everyone loves some new pets!
DK gets a boost.. finally.
Hunter is getting nerfed? again? And where are the extra stable-slots we really need?What is it that you're reading about Hunters getting nerfed? As for the extra stable-slots, I've read elsewhere that patch 5.3 will be adding an extra 20 stable-slots.https://twitter.com/Ghostcrawler/status/316700676874964992
AT LAST, THE THIRD SPECS, THANK YOU GOD!
DK gets a boost.. finally.Finally? Are you high or something? Tell me what you are using...
