A could respond to that in a number of ways. I'll give it the most calm response I can muster: I disagree.

uber-shitty - no
gay ass - no
fucking teenage community - yes, too many brats around that sometimes get in your way. Play at school time or play in the night when all the kiddies have gone to bed
all hardcore players play - yup

I'm not a great fan of PvP, but did he realise there are also Normal and even RP servers where PvP is restricted?

So this friend became a GM, then quit? Or are these two separate friends?

Hehe, I love that PA.

But yeah, I don't like the PvP in WoW at all.  The only time it was fun was when my guild and a horde guild organized a PvP event.  Overall though, GW has a better PvP system.

EVE's PvP system has alot in common with WoW actually. WoW is a constant fraction war between two sides. EVE is a whole bunch of nearly constant wars between the big alliances and corporations. The real differences is the wars are between player created organizations in EVE rather than two NPC fractions that players belong to.  I guess it just comes down to what you prefer, Science-Fiction or Fantasy. Being the Star Trek whore I am, I prefer Sci-Fi myself.

Yes, I'm a corporate drone. I am told what to think, I am told what to do. I eat McDonalds because they claim they are healthy and have 100% meat in their burgers, plus a pinch of salt, which would mean that their burgers don't contain 100 per cent, because there is 0.0000~something~01 per cent of salt in there, but I eat it anyway while I read celebrity magazines to see what they wear because I wear what I am told, I wear Levi and Bench and anything from Topman, because that is what the system tells me to wear and what everyone else wears because everyone else is being told what to wear and what to think by the same corporate leaders who tell everyone the same thing because it is easier for them to create their goods in endlessly identical mass production, thus keeping down their costs while selling it to the consumer drone for outrageously overpriced prices, and while I am wearing my Levis and eating "healthier" McDonalds I am watching the Television which contains a constant stream of updates on how I am to behave and act in the corporate society, the television gives words and images of how we should be and act in all walks of life and as I stare at the screen, my eyes turning square and my body turning to mush in the seat of my armchair I am told that it is the in-thing to be fit and healthy, so I rush down to the gym and with hundreds of others I park my butt onto a bicycle that doesn't move and spin those pedals, while I watch soap operas telling me how to live, and drink water from bottles fresh from corporate-owned highland springs, once I've spent an hour at the gym, and believe that that hour is enough for me, I then go to work, the centre of corporate society, and work directly for the corporations, making products or just increasing the financial power they have, in full belief that it is for my own benefit when I recieve my monthly paycheck, when in fact what the corporation gains is much more than the wages they pay and as they get richer, the polarity of society ever widens, and yet still I look upon those richer than I and believe that if I just keep working and following their lead I will one day be able to be just like them, it is my dream to become rich, and yet it is likely that I never will because the corporate society will always keep me down, keep me working, keep me thinking for its own benefit, and not mine.

and

I think you would be refering to the first link, with the mutated thing dancing and making car sounds. meh...... e-mail gone wrong. I never pay any attention to it anyway, just change the channel or move on.

Guild wars pvp VS World of warcraft pvp

Guild wars : if you like fighting in a arena play GW everyone gets a fair chance, and this games doesnt require as much time as WoW.

World of warcraft : Bigger and different places to fight play wow, and the fact that someone can attack you when fighting monsters makes it harder to survive but its more fun.

i am aware of that guild wars has many areans, but cmon they are to small

i have both games and i enjoy both pvps cause both require tactics, so can someone please say whats wrong with the pvp in GW or WoW? they are two different games, so two different pvp styles...

So,
uhm anyone of you was at the BGs yesterday?

Been at alterac, took me only 40mins of waiting.
when i entered horde had Ice lord at our base, we put him down in about 15mins then. Afterthat we pushed horde back to field of strife slowly, very slowly.
Bunch of unorganized lvl 60s... I got a well organized 20 man raid together and we worked fine, but the other 20 ppl didn't help, they wanted to do their own thing everyone of the-.-
I hope today/tomorrow it will be better, doubt it though
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Laser.T on June 09, 2005, 11:03:10 am
Hey, better than I experienced. Waited 3 hrs+ for Alterac. Then my patience finally snapped and I went to Warsong. Had three games there, lost of three  :-\ Went back to Alterac. Just 45 mins then got in... the Horde were already at our base and burning down our bunkers! We managed to hold them at the bridge for a couple of hours but they were too much and the game ended. Then I was about to wait 2 more hours to get into anoter alerac but decided it was far too late.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Elyl on June 13, 2005, 08:26:20 am
Was in warsong yesterday. First 2 matches were real fun, Teams even of lvl and skill, both games were with the exact same teams. It was 3-s for alliance and 3-1 for horde.
So i think why not go there again, so i join another game,  looking at our lvl we were 3 lvl 60s and rest 55-. Okay, i think, don't know yet what the horde team is like, so ii take a look at the score board and see lots of names i know from Alterac, and 2 or 3 from the previous 2 games all lvl 60 except for a lvl 58 shaman and 59 druid. Not too bad either, with goood tactics we could still win, but we didnt cause the ppl lvl 55- didn't know there class as it seemed, our 3 mages were out front, although they were told to defend, cause of frost nova and the other cold spells, so we had only 2 hunters and me defendng the flag most of the time, i had crippling applied to both weapons to slow the guy with the flag down, always worked, but we didn't have enough dmg output to counter the healing the guy got from the priests, and the shamans nuked me to death with earth n fire shock. when it was 2-0 for horde i told them that all should defend, cause we can't win anyway and that way we would still get some nice honor from killing horde, but nobody listens, except the other lvl 60s, so horde gets in, we try to kill flag carrier and fail cause of missing dmg output again. They capture our flag and win. I know it's a game, and it's meant to be fun, but that game, and the 2 following, weren't so I'm pissed by those who fucked up.
Hope i get in withsome more lvl 60s today

a) money to play it
b) pc to play it
c) patience these days.. to play it

Plus i skimmed through that giant paragraph about warsong player battles and got to the final line, which did the trick for me, so i was extending the favour onto others..

Mostly cuz i wanted somebody to talk to though :'(

I'm playing WoW now. To me it is just like every other fantasy MMORPG, only I can jump now. Levelling/questing is as boring as ever and it doesn't immerse me in another world and story. I do have motivation to keep playing, however: Mind controlling people off cliffs into lava and other such feats. Go go shadow priest. <3

That's one of the kickers for me.. does anybody else find it mildly unsettling to pay out a monthly fee for a game you already paid money for in the first place? :P I know you get a bit of free play time with it, but if they're gonna charge a monthly fee, they could at least just give you the software... I'm not against paying money for a cool game, such as Guild Wars, but I don't really get the whole monthly fee thing. I don't always have the time to sit and play games for hours on end, and when I do, I usually have half a dozen games on the go at least that I just choose at random and have a bash at; if I knew I was paying monthly for the "privilege" of having access to play a game I owned, I'd get frustrated with it really quickly, because I'd be feeling like I *had* to play it when I had free time, and I would feel like I was just pouring money down the toilet every time I was too busy to kick back and play...

Or is that just me? :P
Title: Re: World of Warcraft

Its not just you. No one likes to pay a monthly fee. Running a MMORPG is expensive and box sales don't cover it in the long run. They cover development + then some. The monthly fees goes toward the maintainance and bandwidth as well as new content which may or may not ever be added.

If they wanted to release a MMORPG without a monthly fee they'd probably end up closing it after awhile. Guild Wars compensates for this by releasing an expansion every once and awhile expecting nearly all of the player-base to pick it up.

This is the difference for me. This is the ONLY game I play. I have nothing else. The only other two games on my system are SimCity 4 and SecondLife, neither of which I have touched since I got Warcraft. Other games like Civ3 and Warcraft III got uninstalled. For me, WoW is such a huge part of my life, the monthly fee is worth it. It's obvious, though, that subscription is not favourable to someone who just wants to dip in  when they feel. For that purpose Guild Wars is great - the only problem being the expansions. If Guild Wars release an expansion, I assume you will have to buy it in order to keep your version compatible with the servers. If you wanna continue "dipping" into it, you will still need to pay up (though less, of course).

Nah kev plays it, i am just a big fan. I like it from the outside, but i don't have the:

a) money to play it

That's one of the kickers for me.. does anybody else find it mildly unsettling to pay out a monthly fee for a game you already paid money for in the first place? :P I know you get a bit of free play time with it, but if they're gonna charge a monthly fee, they could at least just give you the software... I'm not against paying money for a cool game, such as Guild Wars, but I don't really get the whole monthly fee thing. I don't always have the time to sit and play games for hours on end, and when I do, I usually have half a dozen games on the go at least that I just choose at random and have a bash at; if I knew I was paying monthly for the "privilege" of having access to play a game I owned, I'd get frustrated with it really quickly, because I'd be feeling like I *had* to play it when I had free time, and I would feel like I was just pouring money down the toilet every time I was too busy to kick back and play...

Or is that just me? :P

I hear ya buddy 5.

Money is evil. And when i get it, ill be buying a daily subscription of beer, not warcraft.

They don't require you to buy them. However, if you don't, what will you do? Play the same content over and over? Not exactly lots of stuff to do in it at the moment. Chances are most people interested in the game would pick it up to play the new stuff or just quit the game because they've been there done that with the old content and don't really care about the new shit.

Difference being, if you get bored of Guild Wars, you just stop playing it for a while, and you haven't spent a whole bunch of money on it.. you can leave it for months, then go back in and start playing again from the start, without starting to shovel money into the drain again :P You can stop and start as often as you like without having to register with any company or pay more money, which is really where the advantage comes in, imo. You may have seen it all before, but MMORPGs are for the community and team levelling as much as anything else, so knowing an area isn't necessarily a fun-killer.. and if you want more stuff to do, you *can* pay some more money, but you aren't forced to.

I'm with megadokyo on this one, I'd rather spend my money on beer ;)

Only if we are on a raid to UBRS we make fun of it after we defeated that  Fire dude.

I'm not sure mumbling is the most horrific punishment for playing music first thing in the morning... what happened after the mumbling and the switching? I mean, if that's all that happened, I wouldn't be overly concerned about a bleary-eyed mumbling dude turning the radio off.. on the other hand, if the fucker is now buried in the garden in pieces, I would most certainly take heed and swap the radio for a flak jacket :P

Aight, yes, teh Leeroy thing is hilarious, but the human community is beating the proverbial dead horse.

As for GW vs. WoW, i must say that Guild wars has me hooked, becuase it has a deep plotline that you interact with.  the quests are fun, and the PvP system is good.

and to lay to rest the IMMORTAL PvP GOD is definately Planetside.

futuristic MMORPG FPS game.  Halo gone to hell.  World War Three.  My Dream.\

PlanetSide was absolutely Amazing.  then sony started with teh expansion packs, and my wallet went into cardiac arrest.  regardless, the price has gone down, so its a lot better now.

Started a new char on a RPG server. Not much different from normal servers as far as I can tell, but you have an interesting bandwith of people there. Ranging from the usual amount of dyslexic spam kiddies to people who really get into roleplaying, e.g. walking in towns instead of running, sitting around in taverns, dressing appropriately and so on.
I watched a romance between to lvl 60 elves. If it wasn't in the middle of Ironforge I wouldn't have been surprised if they were about to cyber at any moment.

Yeah, I've got a couple of characters on RP servers.

I think one of the greatest aspects of WoW is the interaction between peers. From alot of people i've spoken too, half have loved the game and half have hated it.

Nearly everyone of the people i know who hated the game didn't take part in the community, didn't play with anyone else and didn't know any friends to talk with. In this case i can completely understand why they disliked the experience, cause i would have too. I can't play the game unless theres members of our guild online, its just boring and depressing.

What i don't like are these people who go around preaching the game is boring and crap and unfulfilling when they haven't experienced one the greatest feature of the game.

Another thing people can't seem to understand is, your class is not a one man army, no classes are. You MUST work together to do anything remotely interesting in terms of progressing in the game, which brings us again to communication and interacting.

Over 50% of the population of WoW are retards, just leave them and get a new group, or better still get a better guild.

I am a person with a very short attention span, the longest lasting game for me before this was Counter Strike which i played for 6 years ish and the longest period of constant play being 3 months. WoW is now at 7 months and i'm not bored yet. Theres always something else to do whether it be messing around drunk in a capitol city to power leveling a quest area.

If you are the type of person who likes to play games where everyone is equal, you can play by yourself and climb a ladder to place number 1, this is not the game for you.

Bit random it's just reading these kind of threads anger me cause of all the people slating a game they haven't even 1) played, 2) 'experienced' and 3) would rather jump on the "I hate the majority! Long live the minority!" band wagon.

Character List:

Kyoushu lvl 60 rogue ~ Twilight's Hammer
Ouka lvl 41 Hunter ~ Twilight's Hammer
Kakisan lvl 37 Mage ~ Twilight's Hammer

Vyse lvl 30 Warrior ~ Emerald Dream
Rawl lvl 28 Shaman ~ Emerald Dream

Matthaus lvl 30 Paladin ~ Argent Dawn

Rakun lvl 25 Shaman ~ Deathwing

To name the lvl 25+ ones.

I managed to get under Bloodangels skin... I didnt mean to rile (word? spelling?)  you up or how we say it, to stir you.

Yea you are completely correct, I don't have much interaction between other players as I usually like to solo in other games. I just prefer it. Although I do intend to play it more as I did spend about 100 bucks on it. The item that gets me, morrowind feels very empty like you are the only person there but I love the games. WoW feels like Morrowind in Warcraft but does not contain the same aspects. Also I run the game at like 20 fps generally... so a bit laggy in some places. Probably should upgrade.

Well, I'd say Eve Online got a better community-oriented gaming experience. I've only lightly grazed upon the game, and never played WoW, but from what I've understood, WoW is a very static world. You can't, say, build a castle and forge yourself an empire in WoW, am I correct? In Eve, while maybe 90% of the players stay within the boundaries of the Empire (or whatever it was called), the non-pvp areas, there are a few adventurous players who wander beyond it. Ganging up in player-created corporations and alliances, they lay claim to star systems, build space stations, and wage war with each other over resources, carving out their own empires and governing their own laws. That's a very nice idea, and as such, Eve is on the top of my list, should I play an existing MMORPG.

Ok, updating my char list^^(I know i'm not a forum regular, but hell I'll just post it)

All my Chars are on Emerald Dream EU, alliance side

Kallibar - 60 Gnome rogue
Yuán - 60 NE warrior
Narak - 17 Dwarf paladin

oh, and if anyone of you feels liek rerolling and really playing horde, come to Emerald dream! We need you!^^

Hmm, seems me and Sounky will see you on the battlefield. Look out for Rawk, Mirei, Vyse or Rawl.

Well, I'd say Eve Online got a better community-oriented gaming experience. I've only lightly grazed upon the game, and never played WoW, but from what I've understood, WoW is a very static world. You can't, say, build a castle and forge yourself an empire in WoW, am I correct? In Eve, while maybe 90% of the players stay within the boundaries of the Empire (or whatever it was called), the non-pvp areas, there are a few adventurous players who wander beyond it. Ganging up in player-created corporations and alliances, they lay claim to star systems, build space stations, and wage war with each other over resources, carving out their own empires and governing their own laws. That's a very nice idea, and as such, Eve is on the top of my list, should I play an existing MMORPG.

I must say if they made a game like that, but in a fantasy setting, I'd play it.
But that's not why I play WoW. It's not about creating cyber-organizations and alliances. It's about interaction on a more personal level with other players from around Europe.

Been expecting this for ages, and it looks like a few of my guesses were right:

Blood Elves; Quel'Thalas; Outland continent

Was not expecting an increase in level cap or a new profession though!

"Let's just stick some new ears on the Night Elves and call 'em Blood Elves."

They were already in thr story lines, to have made them completely different would make them not blood elves :P

If they change the lvl cap to 70 i hope they restructure the talent trees. i can't imagine a mage with POM Combust Pyro in your face with ignite and impact... mmmmmmmm nice one hit kill and stunned, genious!...

Every druid and shaman having natures swiftness etc arghh.

Just means 10 more levels of grinding for almost no reason to me.

Flying mounts, how the fuck they are gona work i have no idea.


Situation start!

4 million WoW players symultaniously say "omg new race reroll". 4 million people start 4 million new race characters. Fucking army of blood elves and X. A new race only affects new players i think, for everyone else it wil just be rerolls.

In other news: Zul Gurub is cool. The bosses are bloody hard and as a rogue you got fuck all to do... looking at the other classes... i was glad xD lol

Die Gamestar hat in ihrer aktuellen Ausgabe einen längeren Bericht zum World of Warcraft AddOn The Burning Crusade veröffentlicht. Uns liegt die Ausgabe noch nicht vor, aber wir stützen uns auf Zitate der Seite wowguru.com. Im Artikel enthalten sind auch einige Informationen, die eigentlich erst auf der heute beginnenden BlizzCon bekanntgegeben werden sollten. Wir haben für euch das Wichtigste von wowguru.com übersetzt:

    * Neue Rasse für die Horde: Die Blutelfen
    * Neue Rasse für die Allianz - unbekannt, die Gamestar geht jedoch von Pandaren aus
    * Blutelfen gibt es unter anderem auch deswegen, weil die Designer der Horde eine "hübsche" Rasse verpassen wollten, damit mehr Spieler die Horde wählen und das Ungleichgewicht ein wenig korrigiert wird
    * Definitiv KEINE neuen Klassen - keine Spellbreaker o.ä.
    * Level Cap wird auf 70 angehoben
    * Neue Berufe und erhöhte Berufsstufen
    * Neue Talente, schließlich hat man dann 9 Talentpunkte mehr (61-70)
    * man versucht, Heldenklassen in das AddOn einzubauen, aber ganz sicher sind sich die Designer nicht, ob das wirklich was wird
    * Das dunkle Portal ist zugänglich und führt in die "Outlands"
    * Der Spieler muss wichtige strategische Positionen gegen die Brennende Legion verteidigen
    * Der Tempel von Illidan wird eine 40mann Raid Instanz für Level 70 Spieler. Man kämpft am Schluss gegen Illidan selber
    * Mit Level 70 ist man in der Lage einen sogenannten "Netherdragon" als Mount zu bekommen. Mit ihm ist man in der Lage höher gelegene Areale von Draenor zu erreichen. Möglich wird das Ganze auch dadurch, daß man diesen Drachen steuern kann (das allerdings funktioniert nur in den Outlands)
    * Tempest Keep ist eine neue Hardcore Instanz, die nur mittels des Netherdragon erreicht werden kann
    * Zul'Aman ist eine Level 20 Instanz, die sich nahe dem Startgebiet der Blutelfen befindet
    * Der Turm von Medivh ist eine 20 Mann Raid Instanz, für die noch keine geeignete Levelrange angegeben wurde
    * Die Höhlen der Zeit - davon waren die Gamestar Redakteure am meisten beeindruckt. Die Instanz führt einen durch die wichtigsten Ereignisse vergangener Warcraft Teile:
      - Ihr kämpft gegen Archimonde und seine Armee am Berg Hyjal
      - Ihr müsst Thrall zum Ausbruch aus dem Schloss Durnholde verhelfen
      - Ihr müsst Medivh helfen, das dunkle Portal zu öffen, was eigentlich ein negativer Vorgang ist, aber wenn ihr es nicht tut, passieren noch viel schlimmere Dinge
      - Ihr könnt einen neuen Battleground betreten, der zur Zeit von Warcraft 2 spielt
    * Es wird eine ganze Reihe neuer Items geben und auch Spezial Items, die gesockelt werden können wie auch schon in Diablo 2. Man kann dort Diamanten und Runen einsetzen, die wie Verzauberungen wirken
    * Es gibt einen neuen Beruf, mit dem man diese Diamanten herstellen kann
    * Angesprochen auf das Thema "Playerhousing" sagt Blizzard, daß sie versuchen dieses Feature vielleicht sogar schon vor dem Addon ins Spiel zu integrieren

Wir berichten heute natürlich weiterhin live von der BlizzCon. Bleibt dran.

Starcraft.. was so good.

ZEALOT RUSH BOEHEHAHAHAa

But you are confusing warcraft as a RTS and warcraft as a RPG,

So its like matching a duck with a baseball bat.

As warcraft rpg, i think diablo is better :D

If this helps, im surprised.

But really what i wanna gloat about is the bunch of french counter-strike fags i owned last nite ahahahahahahah *end generic leet geek speak*

Was funny though lol =) even if they probably were either idiots or nice people, their voice coms irritated me, alltalk was on and.. well.. i just destroyed all round, 4 guys with one 12 gauge shotgun shot, lucky, yes. But 4 rounds in a row and then again in the next map change?

Hmm.. they kicked and banned me after that.

BACK TO WoW!!!

So yeah im getting a pc coming up to christmas, gig of RAM, sweet gfx card, radeon, the ultra works, from www.aria.co.uk probably, for around 600 or 700 quid, gonna build it myself, they have a sweet builder interface there so it turns out, i made the best choice in the first place, take note. I Rule, hard.

Nobody is in minus numbers, you're all around in the 100's / 200's, rad is on 100, cuz i minused him a while back 10, so he's at a default level.

Chompys on like 400 or something.. 500 i think.
SpeedD, 200!

In 3 runs to ZG i won all the 3 epic items required for the Vindicator's stuff.
For the bracers i'm just missing the coins, and i miss everything for the rest.

My rogue got 3 epics in 1 run to MC. Got the Nightslayer bracers, the belt and Brutality blade^^
After that, the other rogues kinda disliked me.

Post by: Laser.T on November 13, 2005, 09:28:03 pm
Yeah, we use this dkp (dragon kill points) system to avoid any one person from winning all the rolls. The more you go, the more dkp you get; but to get an item you must have the highest dkp, and then a certain amount of dkp is taken from you (you buy the item in dkps, in other words).

As for ZG, it's tkp (troll kill points), and to get the stuff for the quest, we have to buy the stuff from the guild bank for tkp

And another failed attempt at Onyxia...
...
I wish i was something OTHER THAN a rogue (And warrior i suppose) >_<

"Onyxua Phase 2!"
*stands there and watches her fly around*
*twiddles thumbs*
*sees half the group wipe*
*twiddles thumbs*
"Onyxia Phase 3!"
*runs in to melee with half the party dead and a million lvl 60 dragonlings buzzing around*

EDIT: So last night i went on my lvl 37 mage and turned him into 38. Bought his skills, now has < 1g cause i stripped his money for my epic mount. Now this is what annoys me.

I want my mage to wear "Owl" gear and use mage armour. But no. If i do that i go from 1600hp to 900. I want it to be like DnD were i AM a magic person and i DON'T get smacked. But sadly it never works like that, especially since i'm on a PVP server. I ganked someone 6 levels lower than me but got killed by one 4 levels higher than me, whilst on a mob, on Low HP warnings. /golfclap troll priest. pRolly the only PVP kill shes ever got.

The lvl 31 i would have let live.... but she was a rogue... i was towards her on the road, she stealthed, i perceptioned, shes coming for me. Fireball, POM Fireball flamestrike Good night.

But back to the point!

Whale, Owl, anything that involves spirit. Its just not worth taking 90% of them time. Maybe a feral druid with Whale for the mana regen when in feral form. But a lvl 38 mage running around with 900hp would be ridiculous.

I would like it if they nerfed stamina to be honest. Because at the moment its just an absolute clear winner in terms of a "must have" stat. Everyone takes stam. Its as if, if you don't have it, you can't play the game type thing. It forces everyone to take stam to survive/actually do anything. I want to wear Owl but i wouldn't be able to take an enemy my level cause i'd go down too fast.

Nerf stam! Make stam 5hp instead of 10hp! Make it so that other armour types are an actual viable choice instead of "Eagle eagle eagle" or "monkey monkey monkey" or "bear bear bear".

Woo my first epic (thats soulbound to me)! Gutgore Ripper, lovely. Now i have -48dkp :3 Akakori has like -40.

We ain't getting another thing for a century.

Does anyone else here do high end content?

In other news, i respecced my mage to fire and i have some pretty nifty ideas for him, but theres one decision i can't complete.

Do i take
15% casting mana regen
PoM (Next cast is instant)
+2% crit to spells

or

+6 yard on fire (I don't like this as alot of other stuff goes out of range but sometimes useful)
+10% fire damage
Combustion (Next fire is a crit)

Your ideas?

Hmmm soul bags anyone?
If soul shards were used to limit the damage a warlock can do doesnt taking away that limit make them scarily overpowered?
The cool down on shadowburn is quite low considering the damage it can do and if the warlock is ruin spec well, double crit damage anyone?

(Just for the non obsessed/possessed warlocks have to drain npcs of similar level in order to get a shard, these allow the warlock to do most of their spells and summon most of their pets.)
Title: Re: World of Warcraft

Warocks are completely overpowered, get a pet, get everythign given to them on a plate, but normally sad wankers play them. In my experience. And said sad wanker also complains that warlocks always get nerfed and are underpowered.

My main's a warlock (not a very good one, only level 26 with talents all over teh place) and I think the shard bags are a cool idea. Much like hunters have ammo bags I suppose. I don't know if we're overpowered or not. Like I said I'm not very far and I die a lot (fucking Horde :-p ) I'm really hoping they do a PVP-PVE migration soon otherwise I'm going nowhere fast :(

Lets talk about guildies. Theres a few different types.

Hardcore: Like a job, MC/BWL runs over and over and over. Activity 6/7 days all day.

Softcore: Regular MC raids without massive requirements of time.

Completely random: Random people form lots of level bounderies and different things happening.

RP: A guild of people who have something common, normally RPers in an RP guild.

Friends: People you know or have grouped with and made friends with.

What guild are you in/would like to be in?

Soft core friend type of guild is what i'm in.

I changed around my main now though, my rogue kallibar is now my "alt" since i mostly play my warrior in the last months.

As for the mage spec, I'm a noob to that concern^^
Had a lvl 14 mage once, got bored and deleted him.
My brother has a 58 mage though, 31fire/18 arcane as far as i know, with combustion and all.

and the 1.9 notes are cool!
gonna have fun getting my pally to 60 then i hope, he's lvl 25 currently, and has his onyxia buff lasting another 90 mins of play time.

that reminds me of my borther's mage getting the ony buff with his lvl 11 mage. He did more dmg melee than with his spells, he dueled a warrior not using his spells, and won^^ had he used spells, he'd probably blasted the poor guy to nowhere in no time aswell though. +10% spell crit^

Me and Spunky worked this out. There are 2 types of people. Fighters and casters. Spunky is a fighter, I'm a caster. Spunky prefers Warriors, rogues and pallys. I prefer mages, warlocks and priests. Then there's shamans and druids which are little of both. This doesn't mean we won't play as caster/fighter respectively, but it works as a general division.

I'm going to rant now so stand back. Well not rant as such, but I am pissed off. The in-fighting in this game is beyond awful, casuals vs hardcores, PvE vs PvP, adults vs kids. The whole GLBT thing too; while I'm not pissed at Blizz anymore, I'm pissed at the wilful and childish ignorance of a large group of WoW players. I've been on the internet long enough to know this shit happens whenever you get a large group of people together.

I don't like PvP; the only reason I'm on a PvP server is because Kasumi was on one with her uni friends and I wanted to play with her. But where's the honour in moonfiring someone to death if they're already near-death? Or backstabbing a clothie who's half your level? Oh yeah I know; reroll PvE. But thats not my point. If I'm in a contested area and someone around my level starts a fight then fair enough, at least one of us gets something out of it. But getting your level 60 mate/alt to pound on me afterwards is downright childish.

There, I'm done. Resume normal service ;)

That's what happens when a MMORPG appeals to such a wide market, unfortunately :( I understand your point completely, as im often the reciver of a level 60 rogue endlessly ganking me, somehow satisfied he can take on a druid 20 levels below him..

A constant complaint of the entire WoW community. Blizzard won't do anything to fix it. They can't - because if they did it would severely fuck up the game. You'd hate the limitations that would be imposed more than the occasional level 60 ganking that you get now.

Personally I reckon killing someone a certain number of levels lower than you should count as a DK. But then you'd just get low level assholes goading the higher levels into killing them just to piss them off. I think I've spent much too much time lolling around in the forums and its made me angry. Still, maybe its my fault playing on a full, well-established server. I bet you can count the number of players on Twilight's Hammer with an under-60 main on one hand. I just wish people had some sense of honour thats all.

Haha, no chance. Honour is dead. Doesn't exist in this century.

They were planning on calculating DK on killing people too low, but decided it would double the amount of calculations involved in the instanteneous HK (in the combat log as soon as you kill someone) and would lag the servers even more.

Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Spunky on February 08, 2006, 05:56:12 pm
I think the answer is simple. A system where DK's are given for killing greys. The system is clever enough to know WHO started the combat sequence so that if you were to get the first strike in, you would get a DK. If they did it, you would receive no penalty. That would at least stop alot of it.

But to be honest, WoW or not, its going to happen because of human societies tendancies to pick on the weak in anyway, shape, or form.

I wish we hadn't gone on a PVP server but unfortunately we can't do anything about it now. When we choose PVP it was because there was no honour system. the moment they announced one, we knew it would be bad for us "non-pvp hardcore" players.

I've rerolled PvE since.

my guild is very well established and has a spiffy website www.theworldofwarcraft.com (yes that's really it, the guild Brothers in Arms) and we have 300+ members even though its new so come join me for fun :D

Because arena combat gets old, really fast. I just want games that don't have awful grinding. I'm perfectly happy to level up in say, Neverwinter Nights, or some other single player RPG where you gain all your levels without real notice while going through interesting story quests.

I have a big alt-deleting spree over the weekend. This is my current character roster:

Lucrecia 33 Human Warlock (main)
Nakaro 29 Tauren Druid (I'm half a level off from 30 but only have elite quests to do, looks like fun grinding for me)
Arachne 19 Orc Hunter (Was going to delete her, but I was wftpwning people in Warsong Gulch with her, so shes my BG character now)
Nanatsusaya 12 Undead Priest (Playing this one with Kasumi, doing BGs also. Really getting into healing but I didn't think I would)

Four left out of eleven, not too shabby. Had great fun playing WSG over the weekend. Kasumi was stuck on a 4-hour queue on Twilights Hammer, but out alts on Quel'Thalas were steaming through. I've never played a BG before and I thought it was great fun. You seem to make an arch-nemesis (usually a druid for me XD ) and take them out first. Good times :)

Kakisan Mage 60
Kyoushu Rogue 60
Vyse Warrior 42
Ouka Hunter 41
Matthaus Paladin 31

These are the only characters i class as leveling ones or mains. I have some others but i don't use them at all. If i have the time to make a new lvl 60 it would be Vyse. But i still have too much to do on Kakisan and with 2 hour AV queues, theres not much i can do to help him >_<

Just some info:

Next patch has priest changes in it.

Necroplisis or whatever its called is coming out before the expansion, yet you are gona need ot be lvl 70 to do it apparently, lol?

Armour upgrades for teir 0 sets (Magister's etc) to epic in high end instances.

Fixed shamans because they could die.

Nerfed mage spell damage, buffed their water.

AQ War Efforts have started to tick over now. Doors should be open for everyone in a few weeks.

Nianna 59 Warrior Stormreaver( T_T, dont have the inspiration)

Been playing my mage much more now that my warrior is (almost) 60. But anyways, Im kinda playing only WoW pretty much, some wc3 frozen throne mixed in...

I was gonna say I'll stay with Shadow/Discipline, but the Holy is looking mighty fine, and that Lightwell max talent is pretty awesome. But it's still majority healing orientated. I'd definately still be following the same Discipline tree as before (to Inner Fire), it's just whether I max to Shadowform or max to Lightwell. Argh, choices!

After playing with the talent calculater, i wish i had a priest >_<. I definately wouldn't be shadow anymore. The stuff you can get on the holy/disp trees are jsut so good.

Instant casting damage/heal aoe. Targetable arcane power, regen loads if critted, reduced damage taken, spell damage with spirit. Immunity to casting interupts. Just simply amazing....

1. There will be a massively powerful race/class combination (Borg Shadow Priest) that can do 350 dps perpetually at extreme ranges against which no other class will have any defense. When the other classes complain, they will be told that PvP isn't balanced for 1 vs 1 (unless you're a Borg Shadow Priest) and that it's Rock Paper Scissors (unless you're a Borg Shadow Priest, which is a block of solid iron)
 
 2. The system of rank will be exactly like World of Queuecraft's pvp system, meaning there will be one Admiral and 175,934 Ensigns on every server.
 
 3. Experience will be the most fun. Since there are no murlocs to fight, grinding will be retuning the deflector dish 150,000 times a day.

I'm playing out of boredom on Emerald Dream (RP/PVP). Someone had taken Erinya so I'm Krilana.  I wish it had last names, I feel naked with only a first name.

I cannot WAIT to see mage changes.

New talents trees:
Arcane, Elements, Conjuration

Arcane is as before; Elements encompasses both Fire and Frost; Conjuration is a whole new tree for improving the conjuring and effects of Conjured Water/Food/Manastones with the max talent of an additional 10 Conjured Crystal Water per cast of Conjure Crystal Water.

Where did you read this?

I think you will find he was kidding.

Emerald Dream is a Normal server. Someone took my name "Moomooman" so i had to change...
Somewhat off topic but funny:

Quote
1. There will be a massively powerful race/class combination (Borg Shadow Priest) that can do 350 dps perpetually at extreme ranges against which no other class will have any defense. When the other classes complain, they will be told that PvP isn't balanced for 1 vs 1 (unless you're a Borg Shadow Priest) and that it's Rock Paper Scissors (unless you're a Borg Shadow Priest, which is a block of solid iron)
 
 2. The system of rank will be exactly like World of Queuecraft's pvp system, meaning there will be one Admiral and 175,934 Ensigns on every server.
 
 3. Experience will be the most fun. Since there are no murlocs to fight, grinding will be retuning the deflector dish 150,000 times a day.
 
 Sounds like fun!

I don't get it :/

Discussion of priest and mage changes in upcoming patches; talk of which servers we play on... No, it's not about WoW anymore. Must be a different game. :P

I have two level 60s, one raiding, one I plan to PvP with, as well as a 42 priest and then two 30+ RP characters, amongst many other lower chars. I have a variety of options to play with, so with all your characters, can't you find something to do with any of them?

Basically there's 3 special servers coming up with the PTR and you can win a spot on the Burning Crusade beta. One is a race to get to level 50, one is a level-19 WSG honor point farm and one is how many level 25s can you make.

Warlocks need nerfing, hard nerfing.

Highest damage spells.

Highest HP of casters.

Highest magical resistance of casters.

For some reason they have a pet?!

And they can chain fear

AND ontop of fear, they get howl of terror AND seduction.

It's "the list". Everyone whines about each class. First the warrior, then the rogue, then the druid, then the shaman, now the warlock. Although, Warlocks actually are a bit overpowered, so i hope they get nerfed sometime soon. (:

Get some shadow resistance and we're dead. Mages deal far more dps in PvP in general and we only get high resistances from MD spec, which is one of 3 perfectly valid 'spec models' for locks to use.

Warlocks are slightly overpowered, but like the Necromancer from EQ, id say they're supposed to be. If you want to see a class that needs nerfing PvP wise, look at hunters.

+1% Hit
+40 Damage

I'm not.

Mageblade has a decent chance of dropping and if you run MC enough times your pretty sure to get it.
The Cenarion blade requires you to grind AQ20 or Silithus for Cenarion rep up to Exulted and then you need to right materials.

They pretty much require the same amount of grind.

Has anyone out there ever taken a break from WoW then come back?

I'm finding it difficult to get back into the game. Everything seems like a chore or alot of work for any gain.

I keep signing up to raids then get there and wish i hadn't cause its so boring. Its either still jetlag or maybe time for a change?

Anyone had similar events concerning a long off time then coming back?

Post by: MMM_Donola on April 12, 2006, 02:13:48 am
Actually Spunky, ive also been on a bit of a break from WoW for the last couple of weeks myself, and ive found it a little difficult to get back into.

I'll go back when i feel like it, but i tend to enjoy it so much when im there that i dont think it'll be long. Plus, being an officer, its fun ordering people around and making sure everythings going best it can   ;)

Of course, a little success in your guild can help too if you feel you're struggling along, or in that phase where MC is too easy, but BWL owns you.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Spunky on April 12, 2006, 09:34:38 am
As a guild our progression was stupidly good. But then suddenlly it stopped the more people we invited. We killed more things in our guild of 24 than it seems we do now as a guild of 76 (With over 30 people still trying to join us).

I'm letting it all get sorted by other people and saying as least on the matter as possible.

We did MC on sunday from beginning to Sulf which is a first (But not really for me). We failed on onyxia because she has been buffed, we didn't have 40 people and we had 3 priests, none of which were dwarfs.

We wiped when i was last in ZG on bosses we have taken down before easily.

AQ20 we have never got back to Ossirian.

I've run out of steam to make the guild work so i'm just gona sit back and see what everyone else does. If the guild fell flat on its face i wouldn't really care. If it progressed then it would be cool.

I really didn't care on last night's raid. I only came along because I wanted to hang around with you, Genki, Xianth and Chakira. The fact we were in Onyxia's lair meant nothing. I was just pratting about all night making stupid comments.

I'm really finding it hard to get back into it. I haven't even respecced my priest yet!

I went on Matthaus and got him 50% of a level. Got bored logged onto Vyse. Logged straight off and went to Kyoushu. Suboshi explained to me the Tier 0.5 quest line so off i went.  I didn't the first quest and paid 20g and got my tier 0.5 bracers.

I then went to do the 2nd quest, arrived in gadgetzan and he gave me a list of things i needed to give him.

In total its gona cost 100+g in materials to change my Shadowcraft Belt into this Darkmantle Belt which if its anything like the Darkmantle Bracers, sucks.

I went on kakisan and played in the new AV. its not as good as i thought it would be though i was definately getting more rep from 1) being in the main raid, 2) Blizzarding the CRAP outa the horde. But i just got bored and came off. 9k from Exaulted.

Then i went in sunday MC's raid and got bored at Ghennis or however you spell it. By Garr i was tired and just logged off. Last night i just regretted signing up at all. I got so bored i almsot fell asleep at my pc and just left the raid and went to bed.

And this is the game that is supposed to entertain me? I need to either refind that niché aspect of the game that makes me love it or take a break. The idea of taking a break seems impossible to me, but its turned into what counterstrike did for me.

Log on, do stuff, log off. A job. No fun, no enjoyment. No real reason. Its just there and you do it, like a bad habit.

Sorry if this is ridiculously angsty and moany, for some reason i thought i was on my LJ then realised i was here lol. I'm sure you knwo what i mean.

2) Blizzarding the CRAP outa the horde.

Awww poor hordies  :'(

At the point where the game feels like just a bad habit and runs out of fun for you, it may well be time to give yourself a break. It can be very easy for MMORPGs, in my experience, to get like that and once you get to that point you can either keep going, take a break and come back, or take a break and dont  :)

Usually the best option that ive seen is for people cut their subscription for a month or two or more, then start playing again. Usually things have either changed enough or it feels new and exciting enough again to start having some fun again, if it doesnt then it may well be time to stop playing altogether  :)

Upcoming Character-Transfer Service
On top of our efforts to evenly disperse our player population through coordinated realm transfers and migrations, we’ve begun testing our paid character-transfer feature. Scheduled to go live this summer, this feature will allow players to move their characters, within certain restrictions, to a realm of their choosing. This means that players will now be able to join their friends on other realms without the need to wait for a pre-set mass realm transfer. In addition, this will also contribute to a balancing of the player load from realm to realm, which again is a specific way for us to reduce realm queues and lag. We know that many players are eager for this service to be implemented, so we’ll share further details as soon as more information becomes available.

Post by: Armakuni on May 06, 2006, 06:53:44 pm
As you might know wow got boring for me (after playing it for a year)and now like 5 months later i thought i would give it another try, cause basiclly all games deserve another try or so. Question is : Should i play on my old server with my old guildies? cause when i stopped playing the guild was struggling with MC and now they are owning BWL and AQ, the reason why i ask is their requirements for each raid  :o you gotta have X much resistance and X much bla bla blah bla, or should i just start in another server?

Background: I saw some awesome pvp movies, all were outdoor pvp (must have been a hell finding people to fight with, you know equal level and gear and prehaps even skill sometimes)

A + is i still got friends playing it a lot and want me back
A - is the lack of pvp!
A + is i do have 2 level 60s which took a year of my life hehe
A - is the heavy concentration on pve content, you get a new instance and new monsters...you dont even get a new BG but i dont want that neither does the majority i think, more like outdoor than BG. Pvp needs content not arenas where our rage can be trapped like a bird in a cage!
yeh i know GW doesnt have outdoorpvp, it doesnt matter because they never said it would, and the warcraft games are all about orcs and ogres pounding the shit out of a castle THAT my friends is warcraft!
Just got GW expansion by the way and its cool, but GW didnt have the same impact like wow did the first time you started.
So feel free to post some kind of feedback all goes, well maybe not off topic.

what would you do in this kind of situation?
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: MDX on May 07, 2006, 03:22:46 pm
well you have two level 60s, so you've done it before.. surely going through all the quests n such again would be a shorter experience, plus, you know more about the game. so you know what kinda direction to head in order to spec up your character. Either totally respec your lvl 60s or start a fresh on a new server (say neptulon, as ill be on that one soon enough :P) And do it all over again with the knowledge you already have of WoW, its a game that takes up time. But if thats your beef then maybe its not the game for you, you should wanna spend time on it :)

Neptulon was a server born form migrated people on Twilight's Hammer. All the "hard core" guilds left to make an uber server but it totally backfired because the community is 100% hardcore elitist. People have quit the game cause they have hated it so much on Neptulon. I know so many people begging for a migration back to Twilight.... Sooooo glad i didn't migrate to it.

Well from my experience of watching, my friend has characters and alot of high level ones on many servers, and theyre all kinda the same in places, its a big enough world in each one so youre gonna find it somewhere, ill be heading to neptulon because he's there and he can defo help me when i get into my lvl 20's and im trying to gear up in a clever fashion.

Lol was playing with a lvl 9 warrior today and this guy freaked at me (lvl 7 warrior) because he fucking rushed  these murlocs and ran away from them because he is a fool and they were moiderin' (murdering) him, very much so.. so while he was gone i ran in and grabbed the chest i was coming to get anyway and completed a quest of some sort.. i wasn't concentrating on what it actually was at the time. anyways. It was bitter sweet when he laughed at me for running away from the murlocs

idiotnoob: hahaha you ran from the murlocs too, no quest for you either noob.
megaawesomeyo: i got the chest and quest complete.
idiotnoob: ffs
idiotnoob: uhh uhH fucking noob etc etc

its funny how lame some people are on that game.. but i enjoy it, because if i gave a rats ass i wouldnt be able to play the game, and if i REALLY CARED i'd find them and personally beat them down with a broken car bumper.

Anyways.. rant over.

the game was awesome cause of its combat system and it made pvp the best thing ever, i wouldnt want to play on a pve server, get good stuff and then not be able to fight the opposite faction :'(
Im currently hoping Blizzard announces what they will do to save outdoor pvp and the server /account transfer service, E3 might just save blizzards arse ;)

Think ill stick with PVP servers for that reason and my lack of care of how lame all the other players can potentially be. my friends little brother is a prime example of WoW lameness, nah he's sound like but he can get very bitch when it comes to WoW at times, i have to remind him he's playing a oh i dunno whatyacallit...

hmmm.

Oh yeah, new alliance race, Eredar.

"As the thunderous steps of Archimonde's army approached the summit of Mount Hyjal, all hope seemed lost. The camps of Jaina Proudmoore and the Warchief Thrall were overrun, and the forces of Archdruid Malfurian Stormrage were fighting for their life.

Then, the moment feared by all those fighting for the fate of Azeroth arrived. The Night Elf army was overrun, and the great Eredar warlock, destroyer of countless worlds, arrogantly marched to the World Tree. With flames surging in his eyes, he grasped the trunk with one vile claw... and the entire summit was shattered in a burst of brilliant, white light.

When the radiance faded, nothing remained of Archimonde but a charred skeleton, resting in the branches of the fatally-damaged Nordrassil. Malfurion, Jaina, and Thrall emerged from hiding; it was all an elaborate trap designed by Malfurion to take advantage of the demon's arrogance. In his lust for the World Tree's power, he did not notice the gathering flock of wisps take their positions around him and detonate themselves in a torrent of nature's fury.

With their commander gone, the remainder of the Burning Legion's army was cast into disarray. Malfurion and his companions escaped from the summit of Mount Hyjal, and the remaining Night Elves silently reflected upon the sacrifices of their Wisp companions.

Yet, the spirits of the Wisps lived on. Floating invisibly throughout Mount Hyjal and nearby Felwood, they began to slowly intertwine with the demons that had taken up residence there. Almost imperceptively their presence began to twist the forms and minds of the local Satyrs and other foul, demonic creatures.

Now, a handful of these creatures have been transformed in mind and body; they have the thoughts of the Night Elf spirits coarsing through their veins, yet their bodies mutated to take the form of the last creature the Wisps had made contact with -- the Eredar warlock, Archimonde.

Ashamed of their foul appearance, these creatures took into hiding beneath the roots of the shattered World Tree, Nordrassil. Despite their attempts to hide themselves from the outside world, they found themselves under constant seige from the demons who came to view them as abominations.
"

These guys are basically Stayr Night Elves. Don't know about you, but i'm fecking excited about playing them. COME ON EREADAR WARLOCK!

Mage - Likely
Warlock - Likely
Shaman - Impossible

First we get told it\'s been confirmed as Eredar, then suddenly we\'re told once and for all it really is the Draenai as everyone expected, but in a form nobody expected. Crazy.

I cannot wait for the expansion - 2 new races to play with (yes, I do like the blood elves), loads more zones to run around, 10 more levels to work though, Outland!, and all those new instances. Orgasmic.

I'm a bit skeptical about the expansion. One things for sure, I'm steering clear of the major cities for a few weeks while the blood elf/dranei "OMGLOLNEWRACE" phase fades away. Then again, I'm looking foward to pwning the hordeliance (alliance players now playing BE, due to their looks).

Bloody gankers, I'm PvE all the way now :) Started a bit of RP as well, but on a PvPRP server because I'm stupid, but the only PvERP servers are either full, or the recommended one is a migration server so I'm not sure where to go. Might wait a (long) bit for a new RP server to pop up. Its something to do while I'm bored of my main (she's lvl 47, but I keep running out of quests to do).

Gankers suck. But as you near 60 the tables start to turn. I've had fun aplenty paying regular visits to tarren mill and burninating all the lowbies that stray from the path. ;)

I ahve an RP PvE character, hes my break time character who i can jsut sit and relax on, drinking a few beers in a tavern with some sexy night elfs.

The community overall seems nicer in a PvE server but i hate the fact i see an alliance player and i can't KICK THE CRAP OUTA HIS FACE GODDAMNIT! *fustraction* Bring it bubble boi.

Ganking in a PvP server is an annoyounce (sp?) yes, but when you get past that and reach 60, it gets alot better i think since the best PVP is found on a PVP server, and when the world fo Azeroth gets boring, theres nothing like decimating a few hordies with some 2500 crit fireballs (+ignite).

As i've said before i've heard bad bad things about neptulon since it was migrated from my server a long while ago and was known for its raiding hardcore guilds.

All my friends on Neptulon are migrating back to TH as soon as open migration opens. My other friends from netulon who arn't migrating quit the game they hated it so much.

By the way, whats your friends name and which guild is he in?

All i know is on the world event there will be floating Zigaruts (sp?) over the capital cities. Maybe mobs will spawn?

I have a druid on there and helped make a guild with some random people (the server was brand new back then). The guild became one of the Top 5 alliance guilds over time, but recently fell apart as everyone wanted to go in different directions. Now there are just 18 of us left in The Sodality. :(

Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Laser.T on June 06, 2006, 03:01:08 pm
Rogues have always been considered the best for PvP. Because once a rogue is on you, they tend to finish you. They can only target one at a time, so they tend to gets the full points of killing you fully. (You may or may not know but the more damage you\'ve dealt to the player when the die the more honor points you receive). Rogue PvP is better in the world tho, battlegrounds are a bit more specialized towards teamwork.

Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Spunky on June 07, 2006, 11:18:59 am
The best possible thing for you to do dude is get to lvl 29 and stop leveling. Go to BG's over and over and over until you reach rank 5, buy your Alliance Insignia, Seagent's Cape and Senior Seagent's Bracers. This shoudl also get you to friendly with WSG so you can get the damage absorbing trinket. All extremely fecking useful in PVP.

Translations:

Battlegrounds are grouped like this:
10-19
20-29
30-39
40-49
50-59
60

Meaning if your level 29 you slaughter others cause they find it hard to hit you and you crit them very often.

Rank 5 is Senior Seagent. At rank 1 you get a tabard (Woo), rank 2 the insignia of the alliance. this is a trinket that instantly dispells polymorph (sheep), Charm (Succubus) and something. So a mage sheeps you, you click the trinket, you own their face. Rank 3 is Seagent and you get the high stamina cape along with a 10% reduction on the cost of everything from your alliance faction vendors, including your mount at lvl 40. its a stackign 10% on your honoured 10% discount so its 20% instead of 10% - 10%. Rank 4 gets you a high stamina neck piece and rank 5 gets you a high stamina bracer set.

Stamina is the key to PVP. If you can stay alive long neough to kill them, your life was pointless. And for a rogue having no HP isn't an option. You have to stay alive long enough to destroy someone, run and restealth.

Then on all your other armour you can wear monkey (Agility stamina) or high agility blue pieces (At lvl 29 with friends you should have the quest to kill the last boss of GNomeregan giving you massive agility leggings. These will last you a very long time). You should already have the Westfall Tunic from the quest in the Deadmines.

When you win in WSG (Warsong Gulph, a PVP battleground instance) you get rep (reputation). If you reach frienly you can buy a trinket off them that when activated absorbs X amount of physical damage. You can drag trinkets onto your tool bars for easy clicking.

As for rogues in PVP, i hate it. BUT, thats because i like team work and that is rarely found in rogues. Rogues go in, destroy someone, run out. Rinse repeat. Whats better than a rogue doing that? Two rogues doing it.

Definately not the best PVP class cause i will always say that is Warrior/Warlock but you can have some real fun as a rogue, that not alot of other classes can share. A funny one is doing a /giggle at someone right before you Ambush crit them for 1.8k damage when they are on 10% hp. But i'm not bastardy enough to be a rogue, i'm too honorable if you know what i mean.

Definately the most "leet" class in the game. I think you will enjoy it :) Rogues can do things no other class can do, cheat their quests by stealthing their way through.

Errr i talk to much, i'll be quiet nows. Bye!

This shoudl also get you to friendly with WSG so you can get the damage absorbing trinket. All extremely fecking useful in PVP.

The damage absorbing trinket is Arathi Basin, not WSG. The WSG trinket is +4 stamina and heals a little every second.

She is right, don't listen to me ;_; I got them mixed up. You can't do AB (Arathi basin BG) until 40+ cause you kinda need mounts since its a big battle.

lvl 51+ you get access to Alterac Valley which can only be described as a battle like Hell's Deep in The Two Towers of Lord of the Rings.

I love a winning WSG game. My favorite PVP class is the Druid. They've just got so many useful tactical abilities (like the Hunter, too). Here's my favorite:

1) Root. Fantastic for ambushing enemy flag carriers as they appear from your base. They're most vulnerable in the field, so if they escape your flagroom defense, this is the next line of defense for me. Just carry on rooting and casting until your raid members can zerg him and return the flag. This works very well in my experience.

2) Cat Form + Feline Swiftness / Travel Form. Very good for outrunning enemies when carrying the flag before 40-49 begins.

3) Prowl. Very good for wandering into enemy bases and numerous other uses. I like to park myself right outside the friendly base once our flag is stolen. As soon as I see the flag appear, I ambush and root away.

4) Cat / Bear form. Very good for getting rid of speed reducing spells / abilities

5) Track humanoid. From what I remember, the cat has this. Extremely useful for finding pesky enemy flag carriers when they decide to go into hiding.

There are quite a few other useful things the Druid can do in PVP, but these are my favorite. I just love constantly rooting flag carriers, you can tell they hate it when they kill you on sight.

Check this out.

I'm playing my paladin and i'm questing in Tanaris. I'm killing yarr yarr pirates in the east. I need to kill this dude in the centre of the camp but hes standing by a fire with 3 NPC's. All lvl 44-46, i'm lvl 43. I can't ranged pull him cause i'm a paladin so i slowly edge in (After clearing a space behind and around me) to body pull him (When you pull someone cause your too close). I walk backwards as he runs and pulls two friends with him. Then just befoe he reaches me i Hammer of Justice  (6 second stun) him and run in. Just before i swing at him a warrior out of no where charges him and steals the kill, leaving me with two mobs on me and him with the quest guy...

<--- Not amused.

I bubbled to release my aggro making the 2 guys on me attack him, BET YOU WASN'T EXPECTING THAT BITCH! But unfortunately he didn't die. 15% hp cause his mage friend came (lvl 48).

So whilst waiting for a respawn i watched them run around until the warrior used his gun to range pull a guy. A guy on the 2nd story of a wooden structure. The NPC aggroed the friends near him on level 2 and began to run downstairs, pulling level 1.... and the ground floor. As he was getting mullered i walked over and said "Oh dear, what have you got yourself into" type stuff. Then we he died, "Don't worry, i'll res you. NO WAIT! I WON'T LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL"

Justice was done <3

Thats the way to do it!
Like when some retard wanted to party with me, so i let him. He kept pulling things and running off so i (level 30 druid at the time) ended up with around 5 mobs raping the crap out of me. So i die.
NEXT TIME, I pull the mobs and travel form out. So he gets his ass kicked. He asked me to res him so i go "ok". Instead of using the ressurection spell i used the hearthstone and left the party.
OMGLOL.

I just sit down and watch people die. Some foolish warriors seem to think that 'Drinking, mana' means 'Please aggro everything in sight, I like the challenge of healing you with 300 mana left'. I just keep drinking, if they die its their fault :P In SM yesterday, instead of saying 'drinking' or 'mana break' I had to say 'Don't move'.

Also, today seems to be 'Stupid allies day' on Quel'Thalas. Its 20-29 WSG and a lvl 30 gnome mage grabs our flag, got a clear run of the field. However she stops to attack a tauren druid who's got connection problems and therefore not fighting back, totally ignoring my lvl 25 shaman wacking the hell out of her untill she dies and I return flag :) And then 3 alliance are up top about to go onto our balcony bit; see me run past. Instead of letting me go and going for flag (we were winning 2-0 at this point) they decide instead to chase me, in ghost wolf form, halfway across the field whilst our flagcarrier runs right past, into our base and scores xD

Battlegrounds are full of shit fullstop. I started an Alliance PVP alt with a PVP guild in an attempt to try to change that, and play with people who knew what they were doing. I never actually got to play with them, because they all leveled way too fast (I can't say this is massively important in PVP). I won two matches.

So I now have a Tauren druid. Yay for me.

I'd just like to explain how amazing Hammer of Wrath is. Do we have any paladins here?

In WSG its just so damn useful. The horde are running away with the flag, at 25% hp i start to hammer the button for Wrath so that the moment he touches 20% hp the one second cast starts and boom, hes out of their. Whereas warriors might get "out of range" messages.

Fighting gets alot easier when all you have to do is knock someone from 100% to 20% hp instead of 100% to 0%. I've had two people survive my hammer of wrath and they were both warriors (high HP).

A problem with the hammer of wrath is it costs 300 mana. My flash of light costs 90 mana and seal of command (lasts 30 seconds) is 129 mana to just put some comparisons in.

I have recently respecced to Seal of Command/Reckoning. Haven't had a chance to play with it yet though. For none paladins, if you get critted you gain an extra attack immediately (It resets your weapon speed). It stacks 5 times so you can do a normal hit + 5 swings and with Seal of Righteousness, it puts in 11-40 holy damage on each hit or Seal of Command for weapon damage procsx6.

Since my computer recently broke too i can't play properly on my lesser gaming machine, i need scrolling combat text to tell me how many crits i've received. Can't wait to fight a rogue :D

Well, as they say the grass is always greener on the other side, and it comes true in the part that most hordes are whining that paladin blessings are too powerful for raiding compared to shaman totems which only affect one group, and the alliance are whining that shamans are too powerful in PvP. And I can tell you, well played shaman in good gear > many well geared alliance is so darn funny to see as the shaman can just heal the damage taken :<.

But anyways I have alt of every class to atleast level 20 :P, I think it is very good thing cause I like to pvp, and when I have "felt" how every class goes I know a little more how to deal with each class in PvP, and its fun to have alts :D. Every time I feel bored with my "main" characters I just log into one of my alts and experience whole different kind WoW.

But all that side, Im not gonna be participating this thread for 2weeks as Im going to Italy in umm... 1hour :D, so see ya guys, I hope to see ye have been posting stuff when Im gone /wave

I don't think any class is game-breakingly overpowered. True I've got no endgame experience, but I've pvp'ed with almost ever class and I can't say that any class has given all my characters problems. Ofc my priest gets pwned by rogues and my shaman has problems with hunters and my hunter sucks at killing warriors but its all paper, rock, scissors isn't it?

Although why shaman are getting a PvP buff in the patch is beyond me, when a lot of shaman were screaming for better PvE viability. I'm happy because I made my shammy for PvP but one of my guild's best healers is a resto shaman, and I dunno if he's that impressed.

You're new to the game, its natural to see them as overpowered. Once you get to the higher levels you realise there are ways to kick the living crap out of them. Remember, WoW requires no skill from the player at all, it's practicly button bashing when it comes to PvP.

My rogues working on skinning and leatherworking, and if had been playing everyday i would be level 30 right now, but nooOOOoo. Whats more, youre best getting profession classes that are useful in your favour, either for weapons, armour, or financial *alchemy and herbalism etc to train up and one day sell ultra expension potions, ive seen the prices for some, theyre insane, but people pay for them. its neat.*

For now i will stick with skinning and leatherworking until i can skill no higher in the two.. which will be a long time, or until i have no use for making my own armour etc, which will never cease to be both useful for me and my wallet in the game.

WoW has always been designed to be an easy game.


Lets see if you still say that when 40 people are attacking a boss, who every 20 seconds uses an attack that either kills the raid instantly, or half's their HP and stuns for 8 seconds.

If not tranq shotted does double damage and hits for 5K+.

Debuffs the raid every 10 seconds with one of 5 debuffs. One eats your mana and slows you down. One means damage taken by fire is double, another stuns you for 4 seconds every so often, another does 250 damage every 3 seconds and another and a 5th i can't remember.

If you get 5 debuffs then you turn into a minion of the boss who wtf pwns the entire raid.

Ontop of this the boss has MASSIVE magic resistance to all schools but one and changes every 15 seconds. So you have to test 5 schools of magic, tell everyone and spam it before it changes.

The boss is also untauntable :)

All raids are cancelled on a patch day, its just a given thing. Massive game traffic not because of the game, but the downloads.

Al that said, patch released, my mage is now completely raiding specced. Its great imo, i'm now much better thaa i was before in raids and thats all that matters. I would liek to have returned to fire but unfortunately frost is just too good at our progress stage.

Lots of undeads to be killed, can't wait till non-rading days so i can find out whats happening.

Bugs in the patch, hope they get sorted soon. Overall a very good patch.

p.s. I remain leet. Forevah.

Generally that is how patch day goes with any MMO and it continues for the week after or longer.

That's why they should extend maintenance. They say it'll be done in the given time but they always end up extending it by several hours anyway. I don't see why they don't just take all realms down for the day or something during patch days.

Meh, i started playing again with some friends and we decided to play on "Deathwing". The reason why we chose it was that the census said there were plenty of alliance there so we thought we would get more pvp ^^. Right now its all good, loads of ganks and epic paladins that ride in to UC and kill the guards ;)


Starting a guild TODAY : "Sucks to be you"
Heavy pvp guild with an touch of instance grinding, we are starting early on pvp so that when 1.12 launches we will own all.

thanks, drop by sometime if ya want ;)

Orc warrior - Rhogog
Undead mage - Armakuni

Post by: Spunky on June 28, 2006, 08:49:39 pm
Thats exactly what happened on my RP server!

I'm a PVPer on their and i was looking for a PVP guild. So i see this "Enforcers of the Gulch" and think, gota be a WSG guild.

So i ask to join them and get dismissed. He explained nicely though how their recruitment worked. If they see you in a BG, and your good, they come to you. not the other way around.

So one day i log on and get a whisper, "Hey, you said you wanted to join the guild eh? Theres a spot in this WSG i'm in now."

I immediately signed up and got straight in. Match was at 0-0, the game was on.

Game ends, 3-0 alliance. All 3 flags capped by me. Died 0, killed 11. Invite waiting for me as i hit Stormwind  8)

My Warlock on Quel'Thalas is now level 41, and now my main. I'm going to think carefully about transfering my Druid on Twilight's Hammer if the opportunity arrises, but I'm not so sure yet.
I would be grinding my Warlock on, but I only ever play her with another character of SpiderChii's. Because of my lack of time, I only like playing in this arrangement, because I get the maximum enjoyment out of the time available.

Does anyone else play like this, or have strange playing habits?
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Spunky on July 07, 2006, 11:37:44 am
I have my main (kakisan) on TH hammer who i normally playing all the time. When something angers me with TH (normally guild leadership) i take a break and goto my RP character. Stay with RP for 2 weeks then go back to TH.

We have horde characters on ED who we all used to play together but then suddenly everyone stopped playing (i think we started raiding) and some people just didn't want to level past 39. But me and Akakori loved those characters so we agree to play with each other and do pvp, quests or instances together.

Its only recently thise has changed for me, i got mad at TH, went to RP, went back to TH, got even more mad and quit raiding. Now i play my horde character on my own since i'm bored of RP and i have no reason to go on TH if i'm ot raiding.

Thats my 3 characters in a nut shell lol.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Valentine Revolution on July 07, 2006, 11:58:32 am
Too... many.... alts...

Well Nanatsusaya is my holy priest who I only really play with Kasumi's warlock, unless I can get some PvP in ( I <3 BG healing). My main, Shinare, is a hunter, lvl 54, and I really can't be bothered to play her anymore. I tried doing a bit of rep grinding and I just got bored. So then I have Kaorin, lvl 27 shammie who's only for PvP but our server's getting to the point where the only BGs going are lvl 60 or the 10-19 twinkfest.

So, I rolled RP. Started a dwarf priest Nurian on Moonglade, but got to lvl 14 and ran out of quests to do. Rolled a undead mage Calandria after that, started writing a story for her, and I'm enjoying her quite a bit, except in WSG (damn alliance graveyard campers >:( ) It's really lonely horde-side though, so I rolled a human warrior Jaren, sat in Goldshire for an evening and met a furblog saying she wanted to eat me, a 'lost' princess of Stormwind, a group of vampires and some guy who's a dragon in disguise and was trying to impress two nightelf ladies to kept laughing at him. So... I dunno what to do now. Probably keep the RP mage for a bit, get to lvl 20 at least. I just really wanted to have a alliance character since most of my others are Horde (If I have to do WC one more time I'm gonna kill something, and it won;t be the Murloc'O'Doom) but I just can't handle the noobs :(

well since my old server "bloodscalp" died more or less and on that server i had like 5 lvl 60s -.-

So i started on warsong only to realize it was like 90% russians there so that was a problem not understanding anything.

After that i started on deathwing which is great actually, rolled a mage and played him to 5k from lvl 30 and then i started a priest and played him to lvl 5 got bored and rolled a warrior, played him to lvl 36 got bored since i already got 2 lvl 60 warriors on another server -.-
Rolled an hunter and REALLY enjoyed it ^^ funny shit

lvl 24 atm probably 26+ tomorrow

When Dunemaul had it's second migration, Most major guilds had decided to leave, but only a few days before migration, we were informed that it was one of these 'unofficial Russian servers'. Not a single guild moved. I don't know if even a single player moved.
Some time later Blizz realized their mistake and gave us another migration. Tarren Mill (our current home) rocks.

A neat tip: If your honoured with WSG you get a choice of rings. For a caster its int, stam spell damage i think and for a melee its str, stam, agil. Now these rings are unique but, at lvl 49 theres nothing to stop you wearing the lvl 48 one AND the lvl 38 one :D Meaning at lvl 60 you can wear the lvl 60 one and the lvl 58 one :D

Last night whilst playing on Emeral Dream (horde) i was doing my usual pvp stint, owning the alliance left and right. But one particular fight, all the alliance were in defence and we were just in their base killing there menz over and over. But one clever dude tried runnign to our base along the western edge. I had died and was running back when i saw him, lvl 46 gnome mage.

I intercepted him on a 90 degree angle and instantly hamstringed him. He didn't dismount before he was dead, which took 4 seconds. I then /kiss'd him cause he didn't released, waved goodbye then looted him corpse.

Gota love that gnome lovin'!

This kinda happened to me.  I was in Darkshire, when a lvl?? troll hunter came in killing everything.  I didn't know hunters could play dead, so when he "died" i went up and started crouch raping his "corpse" (because he had killed me like 5 times).  After about a second he got up and chased me into the tavern and killed me there.  IT was a sad day.

Post by: Spunky on July 12, 2006, 03:29:49 pm
So lets begin with

I HATE PICKUP GROUPS.

This is hit and miss, but unfortunately you miss more than you hit. It's very rare when you get a pickup group when people inside it 1) know what to do 2) speak english 3) don't feel the need to roll on every fucking thing that drops even if they cannot use it.

I haven't had this problem on my Horde char but i put that down to it being a normal server. It seems that you need a lower IQ to play on a PVP server or something. Leet bastards.

Why whats up with it?

I haven't seen the leaked patchnotes yet but i'm guessing they will group servers by data centre or something so its not completely open. i cannot WAIT for it to come out. Getting higher ranks will be PISS easy. So much more chance to meet peopel you have not met before, meaning 100% honor gain :D

Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Valentine Revolution on July 17, 2006, 12:54:38 pm
Yeah, on the US website they've put servers in groups of 10ish. I assume its to do with how they're connected or soemthing, it's be pretty hard to connect everyone together. I'm not really sure about it to be honest, because I play horde, I tend to see a lot of people again and again on my team and I work up the levels with them, which means even though its not a premade group I know most of the people fighting in it. Plus, being a holy priest, I get a good reputation amongst the people I play with, but with Xserver BGs I'll be just another name :(

Thats how i see it :D They will know me as Vyse the GONAFUCKSOMEONEINTHEASSIMGONAFUCKACAR fury warrior.

Wasn't until this weekend that i realised how little fury warriors their are out there. The only other warrior in my guild (The Premades) is arms and recently respecced fury. He said he hated it cause it didn't do enough DPS (beat him hands down in 3 duels), but what he doesn't realise is his arms gear wasn't fury gear, simple as. Its easier to get arms gear and get a phat mortal strike damage than it is to get a high attack power fury item set.

I can't WAIT for the cross server pvp cause tbh, the pvp situation on emerald dream sucks some serious balls.

I _need_ to kill things, and theres nothing to kill *twitch* This next patch could not come fast enough if it was done today.

p.s. Can someone go on the wow-eu site, goto the honor site, goto emerald dram, horde search for "Vyse" and tell me what rank i am? I better be rank 4 but i hope i got rank 5 ^_^

DAMNIt, its ok i was rank 3 before so its at least one rank, but i got 50k honor. 50k HONOR! Thats like whoooooooooooooooooooooa. i've attended like 95% of all PVP BNG's that have taken place in my level range. Damnit... i really wanted rank 5 :( Sads now. I won't get 50k honor again, unless the alliance do another 4 hour session like last thursday. My hat off to them, it took some serious shit to take 4 hours of losing... 11 WSG's...
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Valentine Revolution on July 19, 2006, 06:17:42 pm
I've noticed that over WSG weekend, I hardly ever rank up because more people are PvPing that week so its harder to get more than anyone else. I ususally go on a mad rank up spree over AV weekend (since the only people PvPing like mad are the 51-60s) or when there's no BG holiday at all.

Well rank 1-6 are isn't supposed to massively affected by your faction standing, only 6+. I'm really suprised i didn't rank twice cause i know for a fact i have one of the best honor ratings of all the 40-49's >_< Sads!

Hehe yes, i wasn't too far off rank 5 but alas :( I feel more sorry for those a little off rank 14 :D

last night i dinged 50 after 3 WSG fights in as many hours. I then had 3 WSG's in 1 hour of 50-59, won them all and tbh, to say i'm 9 levels lower than some people, i owned! Muahahahahahah! I love the +50% damage thing... I also now have recklessness, increases your crit rating to 75% lol? 50% damage and 75% crit for 15 seconds? Gota love it.

Endurance tests being bullshit for "we've been playing games on your computer this afternoon"? Why would they need to test for endurance? Surely you can do this when the computer arrives, and if anything breaks they can replace it for you.

The Gates opened on Quel'Thalas this evening. The lag was fine, and I was able to see everything going on. There were many more people there than I imagined for a recommended realm, and particularly around the altar every square inch of land was taken.

People formed a pathway for the paladin with the scepter by standing opposite each other up the steps, it was all very pretty and formal. The guy arrived in a big blaze of glory, being tailed by the rest of his guild in a huge mass.

Then the great statues materialised, the gate opened, and that's when the destruction began... The AoE instantly hit everyone, everyone was feared and then- boom- disconnected from server ;-)

Considering the stories I heared from my brother on Sunstrider, where he bemoaned too many gankings causing the server to crash on three occasions (it's a PvP realm), Quel'Thalas was a very civilised affair. It was done and dusted at 9pm Saturday night, and only got disconnected once ;-)

I really hope that its not going to be as bad as i fear it could be, like pallies all but replacing shammies in raids, but its gonna take a bit more than everyone going around making female BE pallies just to see them in bikini plate armour to get me to welcome them to my side.

Well, on thursday i decided to ding 50 putting me at the bottom of the 50-59 BG's but i think i've done alright. I can't own people anymore but i can do other things like hamstring anyone near our flag, cap flags in AB etc.

But, a dark dark day Friday was. I entered WSG with a team f f6 people vs 6 alliance.  All the horde were lower than 56 and all the alliance were 58 or 59... Not only did they cap the first flag against me in Vyse history, but they went on to make it a 3-0 victory... I was not amused.

Won every signle other game, (except AVx2) and i've decided to concentrate on leveling (and instancing) since my gear is very sucky now for the people i'm fighting.

I also, for the first time, learnt fishing on Vyse and got to lvl 11. I am proud.

I did alot of pvp on sunday and managed to grab another 22k honor.

Oh yes definately. The first time your like, "Oh wha'ts this? How do I do this?" and it takes a while. Any following characters you storm through cos you know how the game works now, even if you swap factions. I have 2 levels 60s, a 54 and a 52. If I wasn't working and raiding with one of my 60s I could easily get them all to 60 in a week or so.

Yeah, Mortal Strike is much better for pvp when your gear aitn that great, but when ye start racking dem epic items, you will be ripping people a new one with fury spec(well, with epics you rip em a new one with mortal strike too, but not the point :P). I have a 60 fury warrior just waiting me to start raiding with her :P, I even might get to the best guild on the server(also the best finnish guild there is), the Exploding Labrats if I would make application O_o, got lots of friends in there and used to belong to the guild.

I haven't had chance to try it. I walked by some towers in EPL and saw no one defending them or doing anythign tbh. But with our server being massively imblanced to the alliance, it makes world pvp abit of a one sided fight.

I will try silithus tonight!

Yes, there are programs to change the in-game models, but they are illegal. Altho there is addons that change the colors of equipment like that black netherwind and so on. There are also addons that put sound files in the game, I remember seeing a rogue video where the player had a mortal kombat mod that went FATALITY when your target was killed by a eviscerate crit or so. It also said FINISH HIM! when you had 5 combo points :P

If you just use WoW model viewer, you can extract and rename models at your leisure, without Blizz being able to do anything, as they can't scan for files on your PC, only for active processes.

I was riding through EPL yesterday and alliance had all the towers. None of us horde can really be arsed with it, there's so many alliance that we can't hope to win. It was a good idea I suppose but with faction imbalance being the way it is, it seems a bit pointless. Been having lagspikes all over the shop as well, I was in Andorhal and, me being me, pulled badly and aggroed half the town (although not the uber-elite guy thank goodness), then all of a sudden eveything freezes and there's me, a restro druid and a rogue surrounded by about 6 mobs, one elite and then bang! Dead.

Just transferred my druid to Moonglade for some RP fun. I have my human warlock there too but I need to think up a character for her, whereas I've been RPing my druid even when she was on a PvP server (yes, I actually spent half-hour running across Mulgore in bear form with the kodo, because I'm a fucking nerd, alright?)

And the WoW model viewer doesn't come in juicy Mac flavour :(

I can only hope the initial boom of pvp wears soon so people can go back to raiding and allowing me to rank up! I went from standing 43 to 196... lovely.

i havent found at guild yet worth running with to any instance.. i usually ride with 60s but its not a good for xp obv. so i find randoms and they always turn out to be idiots. ALWAYS. not some of the time. ALWAYS.


btw i want to see that, was watching exiled practice run it today and they got it down to 60% health, on their second run. Impressive enemy.. its lvl 63, and its not elite.. when he was looking at it, but i think its a bug :P

Such a hard boss.. i mean thats just phase one, then phase two inside it? i mean jesus.. i'd imagine the health would remain intact and decreasing rather than hp reset for second phase but still, so much work.. seems almost impossible. yet.

Finally got my first character to 60 last night, tried my first 60 WSG this morning and got owned because my gear is shit (2 bits of tier 0, rest are greens or from Mara/St o.O ) So yeah... nearly hit honored with AV so I guess I'll stick at that for a bit.

I prefer PvPing with my holy priest (lvl 48), can't wait to get into AV with her and get my heal-groove on, way more interesting than sticking my hunter on a hill and auto-shot for 3 hours :-/
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Kasumi-Astra on October 04, 2006, 08:45:07 pm
Recently I've aquired two pieces of my tier 0 (Dreadmist) set from the AH, funded by an epic that dropped while myself and SpiderChii were in Searing Gorge :D
I'm gearing up for more leveling with my main (l48 UD Warlock, played exclusively with SpiderChii's priest) now that her Hunter has hit 60.

I've also been working on two new alts, which have become my second characters because I'm enjoying them so much.

The first is a l24 Tauren Ferral Druid, which I plan to PVP for all the nice Ferral-friendly armour. I really enjoyed catfrom with my last druid, and I wanted to experiment around with a druid tailored exclusively for melee and damage.

The second is a l12 Tauren Hunter. I'd left this one on the backburner for a while, because I found the class very difficult to play without a pet. I did eventually spend a bit on armour and a two-handed sword, and I got myself a rare-spawn pet.

Then I've started a new Undead Rogue, pretty much because they look fucking awesome :D

On Akakori (mage) our guild has reached C'thun and we've got his Eye down to 20%. I'm saving DKP until I get the opportunity to take stuff for a few pieces of Enigma (including the Robes when we finally down C'thun). It usually takes us two weeks to beat a tough boss (one for an easy one 8)).

On Kimhren (druid), fucking Wildheart gloves will not drop and I'm steadily seeing my dreams of getting Feralheart gear go down the drain as I have less and less patience with the pitiful drop rate.

On Mirei (priest), I've not done much, but I've just moved Zenohra (shaman) over to the same server as Mirei and joined the same guild, so I hope I'll be getting a lot more PvPing done with these two.

Okay, I made both accounts on my computer with two seperate trial keys, one for my friend and one for me using the same credit card since he pussied out of using one of his parent's. So, after making them both I give him the account details. After even more downloaded we both finished. The problem is that he can't log into either of the accounts, where as I can log into both. It just gives him the error: Invalid User Info or something, saying the details are wrong.

We're pretty sure his connection is fine and nothing is blocking it since he turned everything off and a tracker succedded but still no luck. One idea was that it wasn't working because I registered them on a different ip or something?

Thanks a lot for any help.

None. But at least £30/£40 is a one off payment.
Play WoW for two years at £8.99 a month.

£215.

Seriously. Bang that up with the amount of time that game takes up. At least with non MMO games, you pay one off, play, get bored, sell on.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Laser.T on December 02, 2006, 08:19:58 pm
I pay £25.17 for 3 months of play. That's £100.68 for a year, add that to the ~£30 initial price. That is £130.68

That is for a game that I have played on for almost half my life for over a year now.

Now, with new "next-gen" games, you pay £50 for one game. Which often last for a month at max and that isn't playing it constantly. Now, for a month of play on WoW I'm paying £10.89 (130.68/12). £10 for a game that keeps on going, or £50 for a game that inevitably ends.

I don't think I've lost out, even if you sell the non-MMO back for a meagre ~£10.

Still, £100 for a years worth of a socially time consuming game just doesn't cut it for me anymore. I'd rather pay £40 for a game and enjoy that than constantly have money drained out my bank account. I bought FF7 two years ago and i still play it. I bought it for £6 brand new.

I guess it depends on what you enjoy, but i just don't like the concept of giving my money away to a company that, despite the millions it now earns, continues to churn out second rate crap to preteen losers who demand everything and (still) continue to whine. WoW has passed the point of no return.
Then again, If you're up for constantly grinding the same instances time and time again for no real purpose then hey, each to their own. :)

Well, to update my WoW situation: I have been abandoned!!!! :'(

I seem to be the sole remaining WoW player from my group of (RL) friends that played WoW from the beginning. All the others are now handing in their Insignia's of the Alliance and will not be getting Burning Crusade in order to concentrate on their dissertations.

I don't blame them really, WoW came into my life in my last semester of university and its possibly the cause of the drop in the final grade of my degree (apart from detesting my course etc etc). But alas I am now to be alone. I have nightmares where I'm stood alone calling out "Guys? Guys?" to empty halls and corridors in the grey and bleak Medivh's Tower. They say they'll come back, but I'm not so sure they will.

I guess I better post here now...
I have two characters (because I'm playing with two different friends on two different servers):
Uthare - level 18 tauren hunter on Sylvanas
Nizaf - level 14 night elf hunter on Lightbringer

I've just got my second 60 (undead priest) and I'm bored as holy fuck. Untill this PvP gear-matching thing comes in, BGs are just fecking pointless. Doing my first ZG run on Sunday but really not that bothered.

I'm quite annoyed RP never worked out for me. I enjoy it, but the staticness of the world and the fucktardness of the players just killed it for me. Ah well, might try a bit of NWN RP or something ;)

The thing about WoW is that it's a game where you seriously need friends to enjoy it at it's fullest. If you party with random people you'll get ninjas, immature kids and fucktards who can't play their class for shit. That's why the diversity of players is a downside because you get a large amount of children who aren't capable of holding half a decent conversation.
"FFS DRUID, HEAL PLZ"
"buff druid. now or i kick u lol"
"I DIED. ITS UR FAULT GTFO YOU NOOB" (This seems most common. Apparantly stating you have aggro and running as far away as possible from the only healer in the party somehow gets you noticed).
If you play with friends you know IRL, you'll know them well enough, have a laugh, understand each other and such. My friends (girlfriend too, she had a level 10 hunter :P) want me to start a new character with them, not sure if i will or not..

If i do, I'll be selling my account with my level 60 druid and start over. Really don't feel like keeping him. Level 60 high end doesn't appeal to me, nor will 70. I only play games like WoW to enjoy myself, make friends, have an adventure. Not to visit the same dungeon every single week, same strategy, same drops, and barely anything back.
Now, exploring new areas, figuring out new plans and learning about new monsters, generally having a great time with friends. That's why i'd play an mmo.

"I DIED. ITS UR FAULT GTFO YOU NOOB"

Oh man. I get this one all the time.

One time I was partying with this extremely bitchy mage (that ended up being a gay guy BUT ANYWAY) in Maraudon. As the rogue, I was holding aggro on a secondary mob while the first one got nuked because I have a really high dodge rate.

Anyway, this dumbass mage decides that it's a good idea to run in and start nuking with her AoE fire spells right off the bat, and what do you know, she pulls aggro from the mob I'm fighting before I can even get my first Eviscerate in, and the mob starts running to her. Now, a normal mage would throw up Mana Shield, Frost Nova'd, and switched targets (since she should have been attacking the one that's actually picking up some goddamn threat in the first place), but noooo, this idiot decides it'd be a BRILLIANT idea to run away from the fight to avoid getting hit and whine about someone getting aggro off of her over Vent.

Three problems:

1) The mob wasn't a Handicapped Sloth Beast and as such, it was fast enough to hit her as it chased her.
2) I was a quarter-second behind being able to hit the mob and regain aggro.
3) She was running away from the healer.

No surprise, she gets smacked and goes down, then it turns on me (who is miles away from the priest at this point), who dies before a heal can reach me. Next on the menu for the mob was the priest, and I'm sure you can figure out the rest.

After this, I told the Mage not to run away from mobs. We respawn (huge fucking pain in Maraudon), get back to the pair of mobs, and THE EXACT SAME THING HAPPENS AGAIN.

And somehow the mage was convinced it was my fault - "well, maybe not your fault, but the priest should have followed me". Yeah, okay, our priest will take a break from healing people that are fighting in order to keep someone running away alive. Excellent use of mana there.

Fucking PUGs.

The thing about mages is that their AOE draws aggro like a bitch. So if you're a noob who can't play a class (80 percent of the mage playerbase), partying with these guys is basicly a deathwish. With a good mage, instances can be breezed through. With a bad one, it takes about five times as long to get even a quarter through.
But i wouldn't know how to play one. I played as my druid for the entire year i had the game for. I had a few alts that i got to level 6 and got bored.
See, i WOULD buy the expansion. Yet, if i start a new character, theres no point in buying it. All the GOOD content is for the higher levels and im not even touching a Bloodelf or Drenai until the hype has calmed down.

I just met Highlord Kruul today. He's insanely overpowered and really cool. He could kill 10 level 60 players in one hit, and each time he killed anyone he healed himself. Because of the abundance of noobs (like my level 15 night elf) getting killed all the time nobody stood a chance.

It was fun, though.

Hes only difficult because he heals when he kills someone and goes into super-man mode after so long. If you have the right raid for him I believe he can be downed very quickly (unlike most other bosses which can take 10-15 minutes). So hes got his tricky points, but from my understanding he's really not too bad if you get your stuff together early on and drop him quick.

I am going to be playing WoW again I think when the Expansion comes out. Fun fun.

A friend took him out in 1-2 minutes with a group of 21 AQ/Naxx geared people, so he shouldn't be that hard.

Thats the norm for him. Like I said, after a few minutes (three or so) he enrages and wipes your raid. You have to down him that quickly. So naxx gear certainly helps alot.

Interesting now with the honor changes that non-high end raiders can get PvP sets that equal out to Tier 2 or Tier 3 (depending on the piece) reletively easy now. I hate to say easy, but pvping a few hours a day for a week for a piece of armor of that type is pretty darn easy. Hehe.

First impressions; not overly impressed. Helfire Peninsula is basicly a larger version of badlands. Badlands sucked. Sooner i get out of here the better. Everywheres crowded, highest level thus far is a 62 paladin. Got ganked endlessly at the portal by a mage, as i haven't respecced. Looking foward to play a bloodelf with my girlfriend though.
Masses of drenai shamen.
Music is fully orchestrated, and generally well placed. Though the title music is at a horrible bitrate and you can feel the bad quality.

If anyone wanted to make an undead, or nightelf or whatever, now is a great time. Azeroth is dead.

Actually WoW is an excellent drug, you spend so much time playing and lose so much sleep you become sleep deprived

now sleep deprivation can cause such side effects as hallucenations, paranoia and hysteria

enjoy WoW!

Yesterday was a bad day for WoW.
Left my guild because everyone is an idiot. Level 25s yelling at me because i won't let them come to the SM armoury with me.
Then my party was worse. Nobody except me and teh girl knew what we were doing. The tank expected the shaman to pull mobs with chain lightning which, as far as i know, draws alot of aggro onto them.
Then the group leader decides to leave.

GOOD TIMES.

Yeah. That's why I'm very selective of my instance parties now. I basically skipped instances until outlands because I knew all gear would get replaced as soon as I hit 58 (and it did). That way I could also run Hellfire Citadel/Coilfang Res/Archondoun (sp?) instances with my friends. Our 5-man party makeup is Warrior, Rogue, Druid, Hunter, Mage. So far we've rocked everything we've touched instance-wise, but were still on the mid 60 instances at the moment. Haven't quite gotten to Shadow Lab and Shattered Halls and such yet.

Im working on leveling at the moment and honor/tokens so I can move into the level 70 HONOR pvp set (which is the same as the gladiator set with slightly less stats. Gladiator 70 is basically the epic version, the pvp honor set is the blue version). Either way, if I can get 4 of 5 peices (or all 5) by 70, when I start working on the arena to get my crossbow (OMFG ownage, highest dps ranged weapon in the game thats been found so far and its slow, which means hard hits with aim shot and perfect for hunters) ill have over 100 resilence, high hp, and great pvp gear.

level 70 pvp is all about STA and resilence THEN damage. You negate SO MUCH damage at level 70 because of resilence. Great part is my 2v2 arena team is a hunter/mage and both of us as far as pvp go, even without crits, can deal high maintained damage with LOADS of crowd control. Hunters tend to have craptons of attack power (as do rogues), and mages tons of +damage. Negated crits dont become a huge impact.

We'll see how it all goes, but so far its a blast and Im looking forward to my hunter Pursuit set.

Post by: MDX on March 26, 2007, 03:14:38 am
God its near impossible to get any run on the go with my 32 shaman, so questing is the main weapon of choice, but when you do get a run on the go and it runs well, best to keep a clientele of those you ran with, so it gets easier and easier to gruop for shit.


Otherwise, fuck instances until youre 50+

fuck them in the bum.

Good god, this game is evul, EVUL I say!

It's simply impossible to quit it. Even if you delete characters, you can get them back if you ask a gm about it within 6 months or something. It seems to me that completely deleting your account is not possible either, I "Cancelled" my account, but when the game time expired it still existed, status "Frozen". And even if you delete WoW from your computer, it's just about one day of installing / patching and you're good to go again.

And the fact that TBC can be bought / downloaded from teh intarwebs probably results in me starting WoW again. ;_;

gg Blizz, that's all I can say. :p

Druids also get an EPIC flying form to match their current flying form, only faster. Suddenly I would kinda have liked to be a druid :)

The bad sides outweigh the good ones, for sure. Though since a few patches they've become pretty good. I remember on my druid, BACK IN THE OLD DAYS, when they were underpowered completely. This was before battlegrounds existed and world pvp was amaze.

Well my first horde character was a tauren druid ( <3 cow women) and I've been horde ever since, so thats that answer. My first toon, human warlock is stuck on Moonglade with a crappy name (Lucrecia was already taken when I transferred, so I changed it to Mirielle >.>) who's still level 38, despite me having this game for nearly 2 fricking years.

I think you misunderstand. The question is if you had played on alliance rather than horde for your first character, what would you have gone for? Would you have gone for a NE druid, or a different race and class completely?

I suppose this is a rather limited question, to the type like me who play their first character as their main almost exclusively. My first has always been the character I level up and discover new things with first. And for me the experience of seeing things for the first time is most important, so playing a second time round is half as interesting. Anyway, I'm babbling...

Well if I had stayed on alliance I would have kept my warlock. I do love playing warlocks and she is my first toon, so I have a special place in my heart for her.  Really, the only reason I stopped playing her was because she was on a PvP server, and the ganking was really fucking me off, but now I'm finding RP hard with her as well, maybe I'll move her to the server my horde mains are on. But I am very glad I rolled horde, being in any alliance zone makes baby Chad cry.

Tier 6-foot-square-shoulders. It's all going a bit too far imo. All the attention's being directed at the massive and elaborate head and shoulder pieces making the sets look top-heavy. The druid and shaman sets are the prime examples of this. Just silly.

Oh, and some stuff:

BC has been, by far, a positive suprise. I've had a lot more fun in in than I thought I would... Which is mostly because of the guild I'm in, though. Chillin' guild with some old friends from about a year ago or something. :p

I also started leveling my shammy yesterday. Prolly hitting 61 on it today, if I can be bothered to play with it. Had to spec Ele/resto on it though, couldn't stand enhancement anymore. It's just too damn boring. Besides, Elemental mastery+Nature's Swiftness at lvl 61. ^^ <3

Not all the time. Most the time, the class that attacks you instantly decides whether you should fight back or just let them kill you. I can only just kill shamen, and i suck majorly against warlocks :(

Im talking about pitting one class against another in a prepare, fair, unbuffed fight, and yes evilcandybag i do agree, though i kinda meant to implement that through player skill, you should know how to spec to your gear, so to speak.

So if anyone but a shaman attacks you, you just stand there and let them kill you? :p Imo, should always fight back, or if the opponent seems impossible to beat, attempt to run away. Of course, wether you can run away or not depends on your class. :P

Played WSG recently, and frankly im disgusted at how bad the Horde have become. When i was playing my druid, i recall getting slaughtered by them. I think because of Bloodelves the tables have turned. They had three hunters traveling in a group basicly machine gunning a single target. If we got near them, thered be stealthed rogues ready to kick our ass. It was impossible to win.
So i made a gnome mage. Level 6 bitch.
Priest is at 49 atm :)

Dunno, but I think I've always been losing as Horde. At least we've never been winning more than 50% of the BG's I've been to. Well, have always had a lot of premades against us on LB... The same for everyone, I guess.

WSG is fucked up anyways, if you ask me. There should be a time limit to it, or something. AV is nowadays my favourite BG, definetly. I kinda find it sad, though, that after that one patch it turned into zerging. :F Good ol' 30h+ AV's ftw. ^^

That's mighty awesome of you, but im gonna join the scarshield legion server, because i already have craploads of friends on there.

Anyway, so i installed the game, i figured i'd make a drenaei or how the fuck you spell it, turns out i can't do that, so i take the next best brutal alliance class (don't get me started, i think all alliance classes look like a gay parade) so, i take a dwarf.

Called the fella Grimgold, now im entering the world and i get the message Disconnected up to 4 times !

I got the install from my lil bro, whom has a lot of mods and stuff on there, so i deleted them and my WTF folder aswell. (he told me i should)
Now i can't even login, so turns out i should run the repair file, and now im bored and waiting for 7 gigs on WoW files to get checked, while i only need like 2 files worth of 3 kb.

Be warned: Playing an undead rogue means that pretty much every-single Alliance who sees you, will try to gank you. They all hate UD rogues. Unless you play on an normal server, that is. I've always played on pvp servers, so kinda took it for granted. :P

Also, especially if your character is male, almost every piece of equip will look like crap on you. :) And you'll probably be doing those pointless wolf meat gathering type of quests as a rogue, too. Unless you decide to lvl by only grinding, which gets a bit boring after a while. :p

Well, do whatever you want. Obviously. Oh, and never trust some random guy who's telling you things in teh intarwebs. :P

My main is UD rogue, and it's not like I've suffered that much for it... The gankage isn't that bad, and you'll be ganked anyways, no matter the class. And even UD males can look cool, in good equip. So just pick the class/race you want, and if playing with it feels right, stick with it. ^^

And of them only 1 run was bearable, the other took ages and we wiped a lot. I'm scared of Heroic instances in pugs now. :p

If played right, they can be really good. You should spec as a healer (restoration) or a melee dps (feral combat) for the best outcome as far as I know. Personally I'd spec a druid in feral combat.

We had a balance druid in our guild. He was really good. Whenever a mage or warlock didn't take a piece he'd snatch it up until he had some pretty imba gear. Quite cool too see a night elf (female) in magey clothing too.

I played mine to 60 and realised theyre not all that fun. Back in the old days (nostalgia ftw) they were seriously gimped down, but i heard now theyre alot more powerful than they used to be.
But to me, i see them like shaman. They try doing more than one thing at once, so they suck cock. Which is why i never let shamen in parties anymore. xD
But spec feral, its the perfect leveling talent tree. And prepare for masses of ninja accusations when you roll for a feral item that a rogue wanted. Ahh goodtimes.

You make getting gear sound so easy... :P

Speaking of gear, I was in Arcatraz today, and Reflex Blades (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28392) dropped. 'Tis the only thing I'm torturing myself with Arcatraz for, was pretty thrilled when it dropped. Then the prot warrior rolls on it. And wins. "im fury / prot" gg. Bet he has 5 points in fury or something. ;_; The huntard almost rolled on it, too, but at least I managed to make him listen to reason. :P

More Arcatraz, or maybe Shattered Halls, for me then. >_<

You have a very boring sheltered sight of WoW, i pity your playing experience. For one, on my server, druids and Shamans are tops, and people dont seethem was "tryingtobeeverything" classes, the word is hybrid, and its how blizzard made them. how you spec them it entirely up to you, balancing is fair enough but a good shaman player will choose restoration at 70 and go healer until he has the great gear, then once youre noticed and have better credentials, getting into one of the tops guilds on the server is childs play.

Shamans are still new fangled things for the alliance, and druids are just insanely good now. And warriors can destroy, very very badly. You'd have to take one to 70 to know that though.


Also: Btw i wasnt talking about that particular quote, just the babbling i read the last few pages.


Does nobody read patch notes? or anything? sometimes? fortnightly? even for a seconds? CHRIST ON A BIKE PEOPLE!

I discarded that entire post, seeing as though I've been playing for two years. A downsight longer than you.
Every shaman I've partied with has tried to tank, act as healer, or do the job we never asked him to do. Druids are good, granted, as most players I've met know how to play their class and utilise their role as a hybrid.  Shamen are just greedy sods who try to fit a giant cake in their very small mouth.
As for my supposed "sheltered sight" of the game, well, when you've played the game for as long as i have, back to the point where the honour system never existed and people shrugged when you mentioned the word battlegrounds, and experienced the majority of pre TBC high end stuff, you'll understand.
Besides, the heart of the game isn't about raiding and getting stupid epic items to show off to random strangers. It's about meeting new people, enjoying yourself and sharing adventures with them. Most of my /played time was spent just wandering around with friends i made and making films, or enjoying myself. All level 70s who raid every day will tell you that high end is a chore after the first few times.
And you cant earn "credentials" and rise up some make believe ladder. You join a guild, you do what they tell you.

Yawn, 2 years or something.

Anyway the point is, i just read your post, something you mighta done before talking all that, whatever you just.. said. I don't care how long you've played the game, doesn't change your attitude to it. I've played the game a year and a half, and probably have seen the most stupid players in my entire time, as you also have, that includes druids, rogues, warriors, priests, bla, bla, bla. Its the player not the class, i don't try to be a tank, hell i wear mail for christs sake, im not the iron man, im the MAIL man, i don't deliver mail, i wear it. Full resto healing shaman CAN heal and does do a damn good job if geared properly and knows what theyre doing, this is the same situation for every, single, class. Where did i start yarning about getting epixxx and being the best there is? Ahh yes, i didn't. What i did say was that people who play the game in that fashion should consider that route of shaman, don't pull shaman down just because you're too ignorant to understand the class and only see the player.

Every online game SHOULD be about meeting new people, shit! you win, gz!

It's a shame most of the retarded players in this game are those who play shamen.
"Omgz! I can be a healer or a tank or a caster! me so kl!". Sure, when specced they can do one of those three properly, but not when theyre in the middle of tanking a boss and decide to suddenly become a healer. Or when a caster finds it fun to draw aggro and "tank".
Doesn't work that way.
I'm not even continuing this discussion with you. We're taking a game too seriously.

Well of course, a good player can master any class. But its just unfortunate the newbs sway for the shaman or druid just because of how much they can do. I've yet to find a decent shaman player who hasn't caused the party to wipe due to their thinking they can do everything at once.

If only i was a boy. Well i don't :) Anyway be clearer with your point next time, it'll save me 3 posts. That "noob taking on class" theory is stronger for shaman recently just because of TBC. Before that it was paladin. Now its both, and druid. Noobs should stick to being mages and rogues, or warlocks.


Great classes, but much easier to understand in raid situations.

I think two classes that noobs shouldn't play are priests and warriors. Imo theyre two classes where you really have to keep focused on the fights. DPS classes like mages and rogues just hammer away, the other two have to make sure nobody dies. :(

The life of a lvl 70 is not stress free at all. At 70 comes the time when you need to be on time for raids and grind money for repairs in between. Mix in work/school/booze and you got a nice source stress right there.

Aye, agree with evilcandybag. Takes so much time nowadays since the last patch when they reduced the duration of certain pots to 2 mins.
They said TBC would let players play more casually and not spend like an eternity raiding stuff. Now we're spending an eternity preparing for raids. And preparing is boring, raiding's not. Gief back the old lvl 60 days with MC and BWL and stuff!

I've got a lvl 70 NE rogue named Stifo on the Tarren Mill server. I'm not very active tho, at the moment.

I'm geared 100% for PvP. I was doing fantastic in battlegrounds and world PvP (pvp server). I fealt great in those fields... but I'm all about the 2on2 arena. I was marksman/surv spec. My partner is a frost mage. It wasn't working well.

So last night I respecced beast/marks. Now I am highly effective in the arena 2on2's, so I'll report more on that later :)

But yes, all around - if you can play the hunter well and gear him in the right direction (hitpoints are very important), you can PvP effectively. If you play him poorly or gear him wrong, you're doomed.

I know, but the melee dps is the same on the blade as on the staff :)

both 18.4 or something.

Sides, blade had str and all my skills are int based... and i have a pet.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Lysix on June 14, 2007, 02:24:38 am
What about the speed? Im sure the blade is faster.
And your ranged attacks and melee are, true, mana based. But they deal physical damage, and they need stats to boost it up. Hunters aren't mana whores, it isnt their primary concern.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft

I looked it up and sure enough the staff and sword do the same dps, the sword being SLOWER :P
So for a lowbie item its alrighty, but dont go getting everything simply with +int. you need more than just that one stat :)

If I may contribute to your little discussion, I'd say that a hunter needs intellect over strength. As a hunter you will only rarely have to go into melee combat, and since strength only affects your melee attack power, it's a stat you don't really need. Sure, your pet benefits from it since it gains a percentage of your stats, but still the best stat for a hunter would be agility. Agility gives you ranged attack power, which your pet also benefits from. Furthermore, the +armor and +crit chance from the agility are very nice bonuses.

And back to the intellect: At low levels your total mana won't mean that much, but when you get higher (at least from my experiences on my level 52 hunter) mana will be your primary resource and will run out pretty quickly if you don't have plenty of +int bonuses. Even at low levels I would as a hunter take intellect over strength any time, though.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: MDX on June 14, 2007, 12:34:49 pm
pearls, beautiful pearls, of wisdom, i resepct your knowledge sticky!

I tried explaining that to a 61 hunter in my guild, he doesnt believe that 1 str = 2 melee AP. so the arguement was lost before i even made it to the agility/ranged attack power arguement, where by.. they are in fact, related.

Moral? ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM! nah thats not a moral. I love it though.

RAD~u horde on deathwing? or alliance?

Even at low levels I would as a hunter take intellect over strength any time, though.

In a raid/group PvE situation, Agi > Sta > Int > Str is best for a Hunter. The hunter never needs to be involved in melee here so your concentration needs to be on your spellshot (Aim Shot/Arcane Shot/Multi Shot/Volley/etc) use.

In PvP, you need to have more Strength as it is more likely an enemy will approach you directly, forcing you to use your melee weapons.

However, in both PvP and PvE it is important to stat yourself better for your chosen spec. Beast Mastery requires more Strength as this stat benefits your pets power greatly and this is very popular in PvP. Marksmanship requires more Intellect as it concentrates more on your spellshots (this is more popular in PvE raid). Survival is more about Agility/Intellect as it goes on your normal white damage power and on traps.

I haven't. And I've surprised myself that I felt little urge to return. I gone back on occasionally (while my subscription is still running until late July) but realised there's nothing I want to do on it anymore. I've achieved loads (in raiding, solo-grinding, PvP) and achieving any else will only require so much time that I'm not willing to give.

Just started a draenei priest on Shadowmoon with a friend. Dammit. And I was almost feeling like playing my paladin, then he tells me that he might reroll. And I've got no choice but to follow, that guy's company is the only thing that makes WoW bearable.

Oh well, we're planning to do arenas together at 70, get the full set an' weps an' stuff. If we get there. Should be fun. Leveling with a friend is also fun, so no complains here to be honest.

No no this is my first rogue ;d i have a lvl 15 druid, a lvl 24 dreneai warrior, a lvl 3 draaeinai w/e pally, a lvl 23 blood elf hunter and uh. a lvl 12 nelf rogue rofl ;d I HATE DIFFERENT SERVERS. I wish i could transfer my chars free of cost.

Anyway, i'm still low lvl so everybody create a char on deathwing and add Cravewind, because we're all still low its cool like that, just fun levelling no pressure or anythin its gonna be cool when all machinae forumites are on the same server. Be sure to pick alliance though.

Afterburn, i thought you could only get max 5k arena points before you can get anymore? I might be wrong, hm.

Anyway, hit 70, and got recruited to one of the better guilds on the server, they're attuning me to kara, not that i can't do it alone with PuGs but yeah, nice of them, and then they're farming kara for t4 pieces for me. Did i say better guilds? I mean one of the best, sorry. They're on SSC atm, so Kara isn't much of a thang for them. Just a farming place for new members (like me).

Shocking really, never saw it coming, but hey, you play you pay, you should get something back out of it :) This is more than enough tbh.

Love Zangarmarsh and Nagrand. ^^ Quests are mostly the same pointless ones as always, but there's some fun/different quests every now and then. Insane experience there on lvl 58 I hear by the way, like doubled or something. Also, lotsa neat equip starting from the very first quests.

And I'm guessing the enchant is for added shininess? :P

I was in awe when I first got to Hellfire - but that was because it was a new place at last.
Zangarmarsh was a let down - I got sick of mushrooms. But then following that with Terokkar made up for it - I love Terokkar. Nagrand was fantastic too. In fact, it was only Zangarmarsh that wasn't insta-wow.

Reason for awkward enchanct on your weapon? you a melee priest? :D

I never bother with proper weapon enchants, so i just go for the nice glows. Not that a staff with a burning flame at the top needs one.. :P

looking foward to outland nowz!

Ran Karazahn last night with my beast specced hunter..

Topped the damage charts (with pet damage included). Sat at about 1800 ranged ATK PWR and 35+% chance to crit. Raid buffs for the win! :P

Was my first Kara run. Downed Big Bad Wolf (opera event), Curator, and did Chess event. Tonight we're hitting Shade of Aran and going for the Prince. Pray he drops his bow then pray I win it, we have two hunters in our team 1 raiding group :P

Aye, that bow is awesome. When I was still playing my hunter, my goal was to get that at some point. Looks pretty sexy, too. It be this one (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28772), right?


On another note, I am now level 40 with my paladin and I haef mount(s). Woot.

Our 5 dps'ers in Kara were me, a marks hunter, a frost mage (my girlfriend), warlock, and a rogue. I was really expecting to be 3rd or 4th on DPS. Was kinda shocked I was able to pull off a consistent 1st as a beast spec. My pet is absolutely awesome and thanks to avoidance he isn't getting shrugged off by AE's or cleaves (which are frontal now, so I can have him avoid them anyway).

I had rolled a warlock, to be honest, when I was getting frustrated with arena as a marks hunter. Had no raiding guild (wasn't even kara keyed) and got the lock up to 34 or so. Ended up, out of boredom respeccing to beast (which I thought was too relient on beastial wrath so I hated the idea, I was wrong about the beastial wrath thing).

After a winning streak that brought my 2on2 arena up to 1770 (where we stopped, since I had enough for my teir 2 arena helmet when season two started the following week) I started trying some instances. Found a guy wanting a few people for group 2 and a priest for group 1 kara in his guild, so my little guild of friends merged with them. I ran the instances to get kara keyed, saw the PVE potential of beast and liked it. Got invited to kara on a whim, bout half way through was told that we were performing very well and told we're now permanent in raid group 1. Now I gotta be back tonight :)

I'm excited, first raiding experience in WoW. Just glad I'm doing good DPS :)

Group 1, as of right now, is this makeup:

Prot Warrior (Main Tank)
Feral Druid (Secondary Tank)
Resto Shaman (Healing)
Holy Priest (Healing)
Holy Paladin (Healing)
Beast Hunter (me; dps)
Marks Hunter (dps)
Warlock (dps)
Frost Mage (dps)
Rogue (dps)

Nothing really gave us trouble last night, hehe.

What the hell was the rogue doing? :P Had some whore Shadowstep build or something? Rogues should never ever lose to hunters in dps. Ever.

Started an arena team with a friend, so might get some free epex in the next few months. Also, I bidded on this (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=31331) today just for the heck of it and, dammit, happened to win it. Buh bye 1.6k gold. ;_; Oh well, after getting a gladiator dagger it'll be a nice offhand for Mutilate spec, so I guess it wasn't wasted. And I can always just sell it back with a higher price if I never equip it. ^^

Rogues should never ever lose to hunters in dps. Ever.

Yesterday night in SM cathedral we had a really imba rogue who did 50% more damage than the one in our group who did the second most damage. Then, at the bosses where the damage counters were reset, I, as a retribution paladin, managed to out-dps him. Later the same night we did it again and the same thing happened. Now that's something that should never happen :P

He's combat daggers. Adr Rush/Blade Fury deal.

I don't know why people hate the idea of hunters doing significant raid damage, lol. People also sorely understimate beast masters. I played marks for a long, long, long time. Beast is more DPS if you're geared decently and can manage your shot rotation AND your pet. And with the increased raid pet survivability now, pet death wasn't an issue and he's dealing substantial damage with raid buffs.

Well, wouldn't say "hate", but it just sounds so absurd to me. :) From my experience, hunters are simply crappy dps. Although, that's based on 5man instances and lvl 60 raiding... And what I've heard from friends who raid at 70. But I suppose this:

Post by: Drakonis on June 22, 2007, 07:43:23 pm
Awwwe, thanks guys  ;D

From my experience at 70 raiding Marksman hunters are good to have around - but they won't top your DPS charts. Shockingly, I do considerably more DPS since I switched to beast. I outdamage marksman hunters by a very large sum when you include pet damage. The ferocious inspiration buff is also more useful than trueshot, in my opinion, since it increases caster damage as well - my group always appreciates the buff. With kill command being useful now (plus the pet's stats just being obsurd with crit and attack speed), theres really no time ferocious inspiration isn't up.

I thought I'd really hate beast for raiding (and even pvp), but honestly I feel as though it was an improvement all around (save for maybe those rare times I have to fight without a pet, then I miss marks a little mainly for scatter shot hehe).

No silence pulls either, but mages and marks hunters can handle that stuff. I've also just said screw it and used the BE racial to manage a freeze where I needed it to be as apposed to a casters pull-spot, so theres ways around that.

Unfortunately we attempted shade last night with no warlocks and no priests, which didn't work out well. Our interruptors were way off queue so while we managed to DPS him down reletively fast and past the elemental spawns, without those key classes the mass sheep/pyro would do us in every time. (Mainly because there would be hate on the healers from the four elementals, which means they'd break his mass sheep on the healers and damage them, then comes the 8K pyroblasts which would instantly obliderate at least two healers due to the elemental interference). Which of course, meant raid wipe very quickly with everyone 8K health down, four elementals blasting, and him returning to his regular damage rotation.

We called it til tonight when our warlock and priest will be available. I think we can do it then with no problems.

You have Hammer of Justice regardless of your talent specialization, although you do get Repentance as the 31st point in Retribution, which is an incapacitating effect. With the 2.0 patch Crusader Strike was introduced, many people cried about the paladins' "stunlock" with that which is dumb, why didn't they do it before?

It makes me giggle like a little schoolgirl. I wish I was Retribution again, but right now I'm main tanking a Karazhan group, so me respeccing would just be mean and unwanted.. Retribution's not good for raid DPS as it is right now.. but it is getting reviewed for sustained dps on raids, which makes me happy.

Click here (http://armory.worldofwarcraft.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Vek'nilash&n=Afterburn) for my paladin's armory profile if you're interested.. that and fear my leet green boots, the Chess Event in Karazhan refuses to yield the Battlescar Boots.

A friend of mine got a bit pissed off after the TBC talents arrived, he had full epix on his rogue, he had, like, never lost to a paladin. Then, all of the sudden, paladins in blue gear pwned him within a Hammer of Justice. :P

You have Hammer of Justice regardless of your talent specialization

He just said within a Hammer of Justice :P

Exactly.

Oops.. well, yeah, that still works!

Nihilum's really representing the Horde in this 5v5 arena match.. although I'm a PvE whore and don't care much about "official" pvp, I just love to see Nihilum get owned like that.

Really they should be, but in the end it all came down to balance and the humans had too many available classes. So they removed hunters so that humans only had 6 classes and it balanced the class selection.

[Humans & Trolls: 6
Dwarfs, Night Elves, Undead & Orcs: 5
Gnomes & Tauren: 4]

It was the lamest cop-out ever. They couldn't figure out how to make shamans as useful as paladins in PvE without handing them the same abilities, so they just said: Let's give pallies to both sides!

Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Lysix on July 13, 2007, 03:18:49 pm
did hellfire ramparts and blood furnace last night (first time and second time). the blood furnace group concisted of me, my girlfriend and a longtime WoW friend i met by chance in the arena. he brought along two people he met ingame the other day, so it was supposedly a great group.
 i think about halfway through, the orc shaman, our supposed healer, slacked and let people die or didnt heal them until they were on seriously low health (at one point he watched everyone die and let off the excuse "i was drinking"). he then began to accuse ME of making him "heal like im the solo healer of an onyxia raid" to his exact words. he then insulted my role as a dps dealer, which was then crushed as the dps chart showed me in the middle, with two others below me.
eventually, i left, because both of them just continued to have a go at me.
 this proves two things;
1) Shamen are complete and utter arrogant fucks (save mdx). I'm sorry, but every shaman i party with some shit like this ALWAYS happens. earlier on in ramparts, the shaman constantly overaggroed everything, and when asked to run to his corpse like the rest of us, left the party.
2)Nobody in this game knows how to heal except me and my other game-friend. which is why from now, im forcing myself to heal because frankly i cant trust a stranger with the job anymore.

Yeah, i've had bad experiences with shaman healers aswell.

Last minute healing is a common thing with these guys
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Laser.T on July 13, 2007, 05:42:32 pm
Unless they're specced specifically for healing, shamans can't heal for shit. When I was levelling up my shaman (part enhancement (dual-wield), part resto (healing)) I managed to get into two groups for Hellfire Citadel (two completely separate occasions, one Ramparts, one Blood Furnace). For the Furnace run I got a group of guys higher level than me and already with a healer so I took a secondary DPS role. Despite being three levels down from the next guy up I managed second on the DPS meters and earned a lot of praise for my totem use. But for Ramparts (the next day) I was expected to be healer, and I had a really tough time, just managed to get us through, but it was quite a close call at the last boss.

My point is don't expect shamans to heal unless they have Earth Shield (i.e. 41 points or more) otherwise you're gonna struggle.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Lysix on July 13, 2007, 06:16:52 pm
as far as i know, the shaman was resto spec with the earth sheild, and was hitting some nice heals from time to time. but his overall attitude and attention towards our health was amazingly poor. i didn't feel safe, and i found myself shifting out of shadow form to heal myself most of the time.
 i just don't like this whole "oh we can do everything" viewpoint they seem to have. sure, they can do most things, but most players never seem to do them all that well.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Laser.T on July 13, 2007, 07:42:20 pm
True. The reason they probably play the class is because of the versatility, but an awful lot of players are unable of coping with multiple roles as much as they think they can. Sadly, a n00b player playing a rogue or mage can get away with it most of the time but one playing a much more thought-requiring role, like a warrior, priest, shaman or pally, are more obvious, because of their mistakes.

(I just had to add "mage" to Firefox's dictionary add-on, how lame is that?)
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Lysix on July 13, 2007, 08:23:17 pm
i agree with you there. dps classes can get away with everything just because all they have to do is deal damage.
ive always preferred playing the more vital roles because i feel i get more responsibility and enjoyment out of it. like when i was dps'ing, i felt useless, because a party can go without the damage. but a healer, or a tank have important places and people rely on them.
 
some people ask why people play healers, and that the whole whack-a-mole concept bores them. sure, its essentially clicking someone or their name and pressing another button, but then sometimes you have to think "who needs to be healed now? who can wait? who should i shield whilst i save someone else?". like when the party survive after a fight that was unexpected or more tough than previously thought; when its over and i see everyones finished at (almost) full health, i get a kick out of it because i saved everyones ass. :P[

that turned into more a personal rant. sorry.

Aye. Choosing a friendly target, deciding which type of heal or shield is most appropriate under their conditions and the state of the rest of the party are all vital decisions and I also found it enjoyable to play (I had a spirit-damage build on my priest so I was better able to switch to healing when necessary). Essentially, making those choices is the same as a DPS class choosing their enemy target and picking which set of abilities would be best to use on that type of enemy - whether it's best to stun, debilitate, DoT or simply nuke the crap out of them. Choose a target, click an ability: there's not really much difference.

I'm partial to the way Hero classes will be implemented. I had hoped they would bring another element to character customization, but they are just a new class for hardcore people who don't really want to level another char from level 1.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Laser.T on August 04, 2007, 06:51:46 pm
I thought the plan had been to make Hero classes specialized to each class, but just leaving it open to anyone who wants to is just lazy. Basically, they couldn't be bothered to work on 9 hero classes each

Also, I just read Dalaran will be a neutral city. Which is awesome. But it will be in a new location. Which is... wtf?
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Lysix on August 04, 2007, 07:57:20 pm
when i first heard of hero classes ages ago, i thought they'd be class specific. So a priest has its own, warlock has its own and so forth. Or one for each talent specialisation. So a DPS paladin becomes a crusader, a holy paladin becomes a holy knight (as apposed to deathknight) etc. If it was like that, then they should take over your current character, not give you the chance to make a new one.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Drakonis on August 07, 2007, 05:10:33 pm
I want to play a Death Knight. It's the class I wanted to play prior to WoW ever announcing what classes it would have. So, in my humble opinion, your current character should lose it's current class and gain the new class. You'd be the same race, look the same, retain your level and gear, but would no longer be a hunter, mage, or what have you - you'd be a death knight.

A sacrifice? Yes. Will it prevent everyone and their mother from having high level death knights? Yes.

And I'd sacrifice my 70 (then 80, I spose) hunter to be a Death Knight (as long as theyre balanced and don't totally suck). Death Knights are neat :P
Title: Re: World of Warcraft

You'll have to go with your race's mount, unless you fancy grinding cloth to get to Exalted with someone else.

then farm TONNES of cloth and hand it into the right NPC. once you hit exalted, the mounts yours.
its easier for the 60 mount, as there are black plated epic mounts as PVP rewards, but you dont need rep to choose one.

Yeah, I got the UD epic mount for my shaman 'bout a year ago, it was a complete pain. Hadn't done much quests that gave UC rep, so mostly had to buy/grind Runecloth all the way. Can't remember exactly anymore, but probably spent over 700g on the Runecloth since I was too lazy to grind it most of the times. :P

If you want a cross faction mount, it'd be wise to plan it from lvl 1, ie. go and do quest at that faction's starting area, and later in the leveling do as much quests you can that give reputation with the faction. It helps, a lot. :)

I'm planning to get the green Undead epic mount for my paladin (http://armory.wow-europe.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Lightning's+Blade&n=Vaaja) when she reaches 60. lvl 53, and already revered, halfway through to exalted. I don't really understand how I pulled it off, but I sure am happy for it. ^^ I do recall that I did the quests at Brill, and most likely the quests at Silverpine after that, but can't imagine that alone being enough. :p

The mount prices went down 'bout a year ago, but at the same time the skill price went up; meaning that the actual price didn't change at all.

As does the warlock epic mount quest, I believe. :) The stuff is still cheaper than paying 800g (or smth, can't remember exactly) that the other classes have to pay for the skill, though.

Yeah, and it's a lot cheaper when you gather most of the items needed yourself instead of buying them off AH.

I'm just getting my hunter loaded up on Merciless Gladiator gear at this point... Been 2on2ing with a Frost Mage (my girlfriend). We're doing pretty well, it's kinda chaotic. Some weeks we'll blare past 1800 rating, some weeks we'll get kicked all the way down to 1720 or so. It's a vicious cycle, but we get a healthy number of points and I'm one of the few hunters on my server rated that high in 2on2's... which is a good feeling, most hunters on my server gave up on the 2on2 bracket :P

We just started a 3on3 with a paladin and while our pally is seriously undergeared, he's really good and we're doing very well. Hope to get that rolling again this week and see how we do.

Either way, im gettin pretty loaded in gladiator gear which is nice. I had taken a rather large extended break, so hadn't got points for a while. I'd probably be 4/5 at the rate were going (if not the full set), so I don't think it's gunna take long.

Other than that, been leveling my Warlock. Got him to 40 the other day. Free mount ftw! :P

I am so making a Death Knight. I play in a 2on2 Arena team without a healer. We do quite well considering, but healers are quite overpowered in the arena. I would love to be a healer killer... if this isn't fake (doesn't appear to be, it's all over the interweb now) and it doesnt get nerfed, which I doubt it will be since it's effectively the evil version of a paladin bubble (which is quite powerful itself)...

"Unholy Embrace" - Instant Cast. 5 min cooldown
Target is embraced by a silhouette of darkness for 12 seconds, corrupting any healing spells and effects cast upon or currently affecting the target to cause damage for 50% of their healing potential instead of restoring health. Any damage shields cast upon or currently affecting the target will also be instantly consumed, dealing 50% of their absorption potential in damage. Once afflicted with Unholy Embrace, the target cannot be afflicted with Unholy Embrace again for 1 minute."


Not bad for a signature move for the new class eh? I was looking forward to Death Knight anyway, I said when I first heard about WoW that's what I wanted to play. I was sad when they didn't make it into the original game. Now I'm completely psyched about enjoying one.

Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Ant on August 24, 2007, 11:33:20 pm
It does appear overpowered, the whole point in a Death Knight is to be the counter-part to Paladin, he should have health funneling and mana funnelling, diseases which affect peoples in different ways, reduce enemies armour in an aura and attacks which help him regenerate or partially heal his health and pretty decent melee skills... But what do I know about WoW? :<

So shamans will get one too, i doubt blizz will not let you go back to your original character, but i think hero class is going to be the way forward, wheather its PVP focused or PVE attuneable, i don't know. But i forsee everybody working to 80 and getting Hero class on the way.

They said something like "We didn't want you to feel you lost anything by going for a hero class, so we decided to make it for new characters only." In one interrview they mentioned that the Death Knight might start out by breaking out of Stratholme after having deserted from the Scourge. Pretty cool, IMHO.

No, its been confirmed already that you don't have to get rid of your main character, you're just unlocking the class for play is all.

theres gonna be a hero class for each character, death knight i think is for warrior/paladin, can't remember/care much less.

So shamans will get one too, i doubt blizz will not let you go back to your original character, but i think hero class is going to be the way forward, wheather its PVP focused or PVE attuneable, i don't know. But i forsee everybody working to 80 and getting Hero class on the way.

Well, I don't know if there is going to be an every class-specific hero class, or if we'll even see more at all. Sure Blizzard's said there's a possibility for more hero classes to be added into the game, but I don't think it'll be one for each of the different eight classes, I mean, look at WC3, there were more than eight hero classes. Death Knight, Mountain King, Archmage, Blademaster, Far Seer, and a few others I can name, but not off the top of my head at the moment, I could if I had my copy of WC3, but my friend whom I loaned it to lose it.

But on the subject of Death Knights, I don't think they're going to be all that great as they're glorified to be. Sure, dual-wielding or two-handed tanking seems godly powerful, but would it honestly be the best and every raid would die to have? If so, it would totally fuck up the itemization for other classes and the Death Knight class itself, as with most of the tank classes (warriors excepted), there's a flaw in each of their tank talents. Paladins' mitigation and health, a druid's not being able to block and some mitigation factors and all that nice stuff, so Death Knights wouldn't see that many tanking roles, prolly a 2-handed rogue who can dish out enough dps as if it were dual-wielding with a 2-handed weapon. Warriors are the best tanking class there is and no other class should surpass them in tanking, but by all means let the Death Knights be a hybrid tank/dps class, I can't rightfully bitch about hybrid tank classes, my paladin's protection spec as it is.

Pearly pearls, of pearlsdom.

For gods sake we're only on leo in SSC atm, and a'lar in TK, (my guild, no DW in general, the horde side are on BT already).

Am I the only WoW player in the existence who doesn't want a Death Knight? Sure, they seem totally hawt an' all, but if you have to sacrifice your old character for it, instead of it turning into the Death Knight or lvling a new character from 1, I'm not intrested. I love my characters, and would never change them for some new, bright an' shiny character handed to me for doing some quest line. :P

You don't have to sacrifice your character. Hero classes do not work that way. You can complete a quest PRE-60 (**THIS IS NEW INFORMATION! Previously, they said at level 80, now it's around 60 the quest will take place) to unlock the ability to create a NEW character, a NEW death knight. This character STARTS at 55+ (this is done because we've all already leveled up several times by now, most players do NOT want to have to experience old-game again. As more expansions come and go, getting from 1 to level cap is going to become more boring and tedious everytime we do it. So making you do a long quest is their way of allowing you to skip those levels, to start straight at the expansions). So you CAN have a death knight AND your current level 70 (or 80, whatever level you get him to).

Next off, Unholy Embrace in my opinion is not overpowered. It will likely be their level 80 (or 70) ability. Our hp's tripled in the expansion, I find it likely they're going to increase significantly at level 80 in epic gear yet again. Also consider everyone else is going to get new 51 point talents as well as new level 80 spells that are likely going to be equally powerful. I suspect healers will see some new abilities NOT healing related (instant combat res? Buffs that avoid death for X amount of time, allowing the character to continue fighting? Self heals that ignore debuffs (unholy embrace, stuns, silences)? Imagine what your class may be getting at level 80 and with 51 point talents. Don't fret, I'm sure Unholy Embrace will be very powerful, but it will not be the only powerful ability. Also consider paladin bubble, which is amazingly powerful - but it does not make paladins unstoppable. Nor does Ice Block make a mage unstoppable, or PoM Pyro a fire mage unstoppable).

Don't fret people, this expansion is going to change your class - but it may be good. We all are use to the new abilities we got with the old expansion. We'll get use to our new abilities that will likely change the way we play yet again.

Edit: And let's be honest, saved for a couple overpowered combinations in 2on2 (Shadow Priest/Warlock for example) healers are almost mandatory in the arena. Theyre a bit overpowered when two dps'ers blowing cooldowns can't down a healer because of line of sight issues and rediculous healing over dps output ratios. A spell directly built to counter healing on a long cooldown is, at this point, overdue.... not to mention some kind of balance to the line of sight issues going on. :P

what bullshit. you're saying the deathknight spell is allowed because YOU cant keep a healer within your LOS?
as for outhealing your dps, well, tell me what else a holy specced priest is meant to do if it cant use the only spells its talents make beneficial?
warriors dont need mana for attacks. rogues dont need mana for attacks. hunters have autoshot and pets and their manacost for a few spells isnt that much. paladins mana regen is insane. warlocks just do insane damage anyway. the current spell as it is is overpowered, but if tis decurseable then maybe not so.

and the deathknight at 60 is a joke again, letting EVERYONE become one. games like ffxi force you to start from scratch with every new character or job class, they should stop tailoring WoW to the kids who complain that their homework time interferes with being ganked whilst questing in STV.
if you want a powerful chararcter, earn it.

I made a great big huge response to this, but I'm deleting it and going to respond better when I'm not at work.

But based on your answers, I gotta be honest with you...
Don't take this as an insult, but have you even played rated arena? Are you level 70? And if so, how deep into the arena ladder (rating) have you gotten?

You have some very wrong ideas about hunters, first of all... and you don't seem to know much about the current situation regarding healers in the arena. Let's face it, they're MVP in 1800+ rating.

And just as a quick FYI, a hunter cannot autoshoot and move. No healer stands in the open, we hardly get to autoshoot. Also, heres a fact for you: The smallest pillar in the arena to date with a healer running circles against it would require the hunter to reach exactly TWICE the healers speed to run circles with him and still hit him at minimum range to dead zone (BARE minimum, if you get back any you'd need to run more than twice as fast). That is epic mount speed against an unsnared target. There is no situation ever that would allow a hunter to maintain twice the speed of his target. Even if I could shoot you with wing clip and run free as a bird with cheetah without dazes, I still couldn't keep in LoS. Think I got time to autoshoot? Not really.

Are there ways around it? Yeah, there are. I can snare you and run along the pillar with you and then break off directly opposite from you than the pillar, this allows me a few seconds of shooting. It takes a while to do though, plenty of time for you to cast heal while im dead zoning myself to get past you.

Am I saying they're overpowered? No. The LoS brings strategy to it, it really does. But right now the advantage lies with the healers.

Theres a reason blizzard stated in an interview theyre going to give hunters, for example, an ability to help deal with healers. Mortal Shot was mentioned in an interview by a dev recently (source: worldofraids.com).

Trust me, another class with mortal strike or a 5 min cooldown on death knights negating a single targets heals for a short duration aint gunna break your class. It'll give other classes options to beat you rather than lucky burst or stun/silence locks, but you'll still be the powerhouse arena match definer that healers are. You just may have to do more than run around a pillar to accomplish it. Besides, imagine what retarded things you'll get at level 80.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Drakonis on August 27, 2007, 10:17:40 pm
priest love! <3
67 on mine, almost there!


Meh, theres the answer.

Arena for about 4 months (given your fresh 70 gear, you'll take a while to catch up in gear and you're gunna be very fragile - had you dinged 70 with the first arena season you woulda been like every other priest at that time that got an easy ride to 2000 rating and full gladiator to start season 2 out with assuming your partners were worth a crap.

Once you have full gladiator and alot of honor epics (which go with the gladiator, boots, belt, back, neck, rings, etc) you'll totally get it. That death knight ability won't scare you that much =P

I really won't be able to convince you the difference your character will experience if you gear him in arena and pvp epics when you step into an arena. You'll not quite get it until you start to experience it yourself. If you're lucky, you'll ding 70 and get to fight a team from another bracket and maybe get to see a healer in full season 2 and pvp epics. Watch as your dps partner pounds away on him helplessly. You'll probably lose, so don't be upset or think its a priest thing, simply because you arn't in that gear. But when you are and your heals can crit for over 6K and be spammed thoughtlessly without concerns of mana. When you almost never get crit and when you do it isnt the hits you're seeing now thanks to your 300+ resilience, and when you can run behind a huge shield and become invincible for a few seconds to heal to full... then you'll understand. :)

Overpowered? Nah, I don't want to see them nerfed. Its raid balance, it's even acceptable that the healers themselves can be so durable (although my idea of a healer is someone that can keep someone else up, but must be protected. Not the case in late arena, not at all. They can stand just fine without protection and keep themselves up). I dont want to see them nerfed, I just agree that its time there were additional ways to deal with them. And I'm sure you'll get it when you get your healer to that point.

So now your team mates may have to protect you for the duration of the death knight ability. But you'll be right back out there keeping yourself up shortly after :P

Edit: I apologize for spelling and the overall word vomit of these posts. I'm at worked, I had to ninja-type them. :)

I'm sure drak is smart enough to understand this at 70, but i was in RFK today (with 3 huntards and my IRL freind who is a shaman. One of the huntards was 40, giving us a bit of a boost. we get into the first wide area, and we almost wipe. somehow the shaman and i keep all the players alive, the two lv 26 or so pets die. Everyone heals and drinks up, we go again. pets run off in all directions. MULTIPULL. First round of mobs die, pets choose random targets. M-M-M-M-MONSTERPULL. we wipe. everyone was at least lv25, and there was a 40. yet we wipe.

HUNTARDS, CONTROL YOUR DAMN ANIMALS.

I played a hunter til lv34 on a pvp realm and didnt find it that goddamn hard.

Also, surprisingly, priests DO need line of sight to heal. dont yell at me when you run off behind a pillar and die. you have a fucking bow, PULL for gods sake.

I enjoy my hunter, this is my second one. I pride myself on how I play my hunter. My favorite thing is PvPing other hunters. Most are predictable and spam abilities and drop traps at random.

Easy kills.

A hunter is easy to pick up and mash buttons with, but challenging and rewarding to play. They've certainly got their problems in the arena, but when you manage to overcome them and put the situation exactly where you want it... man, is it fun.

Only class I've ever played where I spend so much time setting people up and get to drop the bomb on them when it works out ;).

Edit: And I've totally kicked a hunter out of my party. I've played as all three specs and played a full character lifespan as both beast and marks. I prefer beast end game, I do more raid damage (believe it or not, heh.. was #1 dps in my guild before I quit) and I pvp better in small arenas (2on2, 3v3 is pretty close) - I 2v2 the most.

Pet control is VERY important and alot of the crappy hunters never learn it.. I ain't insulted, theres alot of bad hunters. But I can say the same about most other classes too. Rogues in particular drive me nuts. Break sheep again and try to offtank and I'll impale you with a rocket. :\

Then they'll over dps, as they have almost no way of controlling aggro, and die. Whoo. Also, their dps can't match that of a real dps-class. Healing is, in my opinion, the only thing shammys can do in 5-man instances. I am not saying that shamans can't do dps in a 5-man instance, but the spot would be better filled with a class designed for dps. And of course, if the shaman isn't a complete retard he can assist healing if needed. Also, they can ressurect if, for example, the priest dies, has ankh and so on.

But yeah, there really isn't such a thing as "tank spec" for shamans. Although, I guess they could manage tanking at such a low level, instances are a joke before Uldaman and Zul'Farrak. I remember tanking SM Cath on my shaman when I was leveling it over a year ago, but as I recall they removed the extra aggro from Earth Shock and/or Rockbiter Weapon.

BE pallys i just pity.

Care to elaborate? ;_;

If a DPS shaman is good for 5-man or not depends largely on the group setup. I once grouped as healer with a warrior as tank and a rogue, meelee shaman and retribution paladin as DPS. I can assure you that I have never ever seen such high DPS in a five man, ever (sure, we lacked in AoE, but we made up for that more than well with insane DPS). When using the right totems, a shaman can increase the group's overall DPS a lot.

98% of priests dont understand the 5 second rule or will consistently overheal, and fail to use flash heal in emergencies.

98% of shadow priest refuse to heal, EVER. >:-/

98% of warriors cant hold aggro/dont get aggro on Adds/aggro when DPSing

98% of mages like to pull mobs off even the best tank just before they go OOM

98% of warlocks scare the shit out of their healer by lifetapping to 1hp mid-combat.

98% of feral druids dont switch out of cat/bear to heal themselves even if the healer has announced theyre OOM.

98% of balance druids... cant think of much. fucking OOMkins/Noobkins. Healing problem from feral applies here too.

98% of resto druids.... dont exist. yeah, like anyone levels a druid on resto. Of course, at 70 they're noobs all over again.

98% of hunters cant control their pet, or at the very least, dont bother healing it in instances.

98% of shamans dont understand that they can heal, Melee or ranged DPS (or even all at once) and tend to pick only their favorite totems in group situations, even if another shaman has allready dropped the same buff one. Or they dont use any. or they drop them before pulling, then leave them behind as the warrior rushes in instead of pulling.


In conclusion, 98% of all players dont understand pulling, tanking, aggro managment or even plain english, and therefore suck.

further conclusion:
98% of all people online dont understand or speak plain english (or their own native language) and therefore suck.

Many people can, and it really isn't that much to get. If you ask me, the problem is the huge, intimitating figure, 5000 gold. I mean, I tried to farm the money for it once, and I got to like 2.6k in less than a week (without even that much of nerding.. As I recall it) but then I got tired of it and bought The Night Blade off of AH. :P Would be awesome if we could pay the 5k gold in smaller portions, say, once a week or something.

Crazy. I got the ring and the belt too (Veteran versions I hadn't gotten).

I agree, it's not that bad but it does take a dedication of time. It's a grind like any other, not particularly harder or easier than a rep grind or an honor grind. In my opinion the easiest and smallest time consuming way to get extra gold is to unlock every single daily quest you can and find the easiest 10 to run a day and run them every day.

Ogri'la and Skettis, for those of us without epic flying mounts, are pretty much the choices. Get access to Ogri'la rep by doing the series of group quests to kill the Gronn's (Theres about 5 quests total, theyre all "Go here, kill this, loot item, return" type quests. Three you get at the same time, the other two come in specific order). The quests to get access are very easy if you have a group with a remotely compitent or geared healer and tank.

Once you get access, the higher your faction level the more daily quests you'll have available. That's just my opinion though, I haven't gotten to the point where I want to do them daily because I haven't fealt like attempting the 5000 gold grind again either. However, since I PvP and arena non-stop (or even when I was raiding non-stop) the fact is... that was EXPENSIVE. Blue arrows cost alot, repairs cost alot, potions cost alot. The daily quests, at the very least, will keep your pocket book floating as apposed to sinking while doing end-game stuff.

The price you pay isn't honestly worth the time. I don't like buying gold, I don't like gold spamming, etc.

I don't care if other people choose to do it, the best gear and whatnot you can't buy anyway. But honestly, from my understanding of gold prices on my server based on spam, it isn't remotely worth just grinding it out. If you get serious about grinding it out, you can get the 5000 gold alot faster than you might think.

If you saved all that honor and buy the veterans level 70 epics... it will lead to something good. They're technically the off-pieces to the season 2 gladiator, they rock. Top of the line for pvp specifically... but since they're scaled to teir 5 with pvp stat distrobution, they actually are pretty damn good for beginning raiding too (Like Kara and Gruul's Lair which are teir 4 dungeons). Frankly, teir 4 to teir 5 was such a leap that I prefer to wear my season 2 gladiator stuff in Teir 4 dungeons over teir 4 pve raid stuff anyway. The jump from Teir 5 to Teir 6 isn't as extreme, so I suspect it won't be the case with season 3 gear. Obviously, the top of the line gear for whatever activity you want is what you'd rather wear at this point. Gladiator season 2 (Teir 5 PvP) is best for PvP, Teir 5 and Teir 6 are best for raiding. But I still find I did considerably more DPS in Season 2 Gladiator (Teir 5) than I did in Teir 4 PvE just because the crazy jump they made from the teir 4 to teir 5 item level and stat allowance.

So... in short, the veteran stuff rocks socks for 70 and is really really good for beginning raiding.

Edit: To explain what I was saying better, I find Season 2 Gladiator (Teir 5 PvP) worn during raids is more effective than Teir 4 Raid gear. However, Season 3 gladiator (Teir 6) I doubt will be more effective for raiding than Teir 5 raid gear, since the jump from Teir 5 to Teir 6 itemlevel/stat allowance did not seem as extreme as from Teir 4 to Teir 5. Obviously, the current highest teir of pvp gear will always be best for pvp and the highest teir of raid gear will always be best for raiding, that goes without saying I think :P

If you saved all that honor and buy the veterans level 70 epics... it will lead to something good.

Yeah, I can imagine. But what I'm talking about at the moment is buying level 60 epic stuff (which I know will be replaced soon).

Oh... no, do not do that... for the love of god =P

Outlands quest rewards will immediately replace most of them.

Save the honor for the 70 epics, they rock.

So I teamed up with a Warlock on my 2on2 arena team. We started playing and things looked hopeful. We modified our specs to meet our needs and then went on an almost undefeated rampage straight from 1650-1905 (note: this was actually over the course of a few days, so it had nothing to do we lucky streaks. We were fighting full gladiator shadow priest/warlock combos, priest/warriors, paladin/warriors, warlock/resto druids, and other "defined" combos) - (I say almost undefeated, because my partner crashed once before the match hehe). Once we got our game plans down, we were unstoppable. Even faced a 1275 team of a Warlock and Resto Druid... Got maximum points from them, 29. We steam rolled them.

Based on the rating of the teams we're fighting, our peak will be AT LEAST 2100 - but I suspect we can dig further. We'll find out next week.

In other news, Merciless Gladiator's Crossbow is about to be mine. Oh ya. (Thats right, I've been fighting with a Valanos. Sue me).

Talk about a huge ramp up in DPS and burst. This is gunna rock =)

Naeo! Keep pushing forward! Get to 70, get honor pvp gear, get arena gear, dominate the world!

Holy priests are very difficult to gank by your average player once they get some pvp gear. A full gladiator holy priest cannot be killed by anything short of full gladiator bursters.

Your class isnt broken, trust me. In groups (arenas and battlegrounds) you'll feel your place in the world. Hell, in raids you're a freakin requirement =p

Post a picture of your guy then dude!

I'll try to remember to get a screenshot of him when I get home.

In other news, I now pride myself among the rare few US Hunters that have broken 2000 rating in 2on2 (with almost every single game played, over 93% I believe). My 2v2 rating is now 2011. We stopped last night because it was getting late. The last game we played was a paladin warrior combo and they were pretty skilled.

It was rol arena, so my partner got targeted first and he ran back towards our starting room with the warrior tearing into him. The paladin went to jump onto the ruins in the middle to get across and I started spamming him with wing clips til the root procced, I then nailed Cheetah and dropped a frost trap. He trinketed out of the root and got hit by the frost trap and entrapment procced on him (at this point, we have the warrior inside the room, my pet is Beastial Wrathed on him and I'm just in range to start blasting) so the paladin has to bubble to get through my trap, he gets to the room, starts to cast flash of light... but it's too late, we burst down the warrior in a frenzy of crits. GG +14 points, 2011 rating. Wewt.

/flex

Next week were going for 2100. Our win/loss ratio at this point with our new makeup is still rediculously in our favor. I'm confident we can break 2100. We'll see how that goes before I say crap about 2200. 2200 is the ultimate goal though, when we hit that it's done - no more games. Gladiator title achieved FOR SURE (although 2100 may actually do it, if not less). I'm pretty sure I may make the top half % this season and get gladiator. We'll see.

I'm back playing. My hunter is driving me nuts because hes effectively broken In 2v2 and 3v3 without the right class combos. Sad too, I step into a BG and I can out damage the second slot by 30-40%. Full gladiator w/cross bow, full PvP epics... and I feel like a scrub in 2v2 with most partners. It's not that I cant shread things with constant flowing pain, it's that I can be LOS'd too easily by a healer and can't really burst well enough to get through priest or resto druid heals. The changes to 2.3 should really REALLY help me out in 2v2 (if not make me slightly OP in 5v5, we'll find out). Other than the annoyances, thanks to having decent partners (even if they arnt ideal class partners) and pretty much maxed out gear I'm still doing okay in the arena. I fell out of Gladiator title though in 2v2, I'd like to get that back up... but it's difficult with a frost mage *Note: Frost mages rock, just not in 2v2 with hunters*. If I can get another full glad warlock partner it'll be easy.

Other than that, I'm leveling up MY warlock and my girlfriend is leveling a shadow priest. Bout to ding 42 on my warlock. I've put my newer shaman (50ish) on the back burner until 2.3 and she's get her paladin on standby (64) until 2.3 as well I believe. Right now we'd rather go ahead and focus on capping our honor and arena points on our hunter/frost mage for 2.3 and hopefully get our warlock/priest combo up to 70 before 2.3 as well.

Given the state of the PTR (and it's bug list as long as the patch notes themselves) I think we have PLENTY of time to get these characters to 70, cap out of our arena points, and at the very least get a nice chunk of honor. I dunno if we'll hit the 75K honor cap, but I should have enough to grab a few pieces of vindicators. If I can get two pieces of vindicators I'll be content. That will let my hunter snag the new Hunter only 2hander axe (so sexy and only 1000 arena points since we have to drop the same amount of points on our xbow as warriors do their two handers) and two pieces of season 3 arena armor as well as two pieces of vindicator pvp honor epics. That's 5 pieces of super sexy gear to start the season off with and I'll be pretty damned close to getting a fourth piece of season 3 gear. No complaints.

I've pretty much stopped raiding entirely in favor of PvP. It's just more fun, but then again my realm kinda sucks as far as progression and decent raiders go.

Sorry mate, I'm too comfortable in my current guild (hardcore content at a less than hardcore amount of raids per week? Yes please) to feel like migrating would be a good idea. Come to Tarren Mill if you wanna rustle my leaves.

LOVE IT. You know you do. You cannot resist.

Here's my avs:

Akakori - 60 human mage - Twilight's Hammer (PvP)
Zenohra - troll shaman - Deathwing (PvP)
Kalsorn - tauren druid - Deathwing (PvP)
Cirildor - human paladin - Argent Dawn (RP)
Ruskill - undead rogue - Warsong (PvP)
Illasil - night eld hunter - Earthen Ring (RP)
Tiraquel - night elf hunter - Twilight's Hammer (PvP)

Tell us yours. Maybe we've seen each other? Maybe we've partied? Maybe I've ganked you?

GET BACK IN THERE YOU KNOW YOU CANT RESIST FOREVER!!

I knew there was a good reason to just have a glance around the forum today. All but two of the chars don't even exist anymore that quote is so old O.o

On the bus to university everyday I've had long chats with my friend about life, etc. and we've talked of returning to WoW. He's thinking of powerleveling a warlock on his workmates' server in order to PvP, and I might consider reactivating my account and moving my lvl 70 shaman (Zenohra) over to wherever and PvP with them.

But then, last night I discovered RF Online is now Free to Play and I'm trying to resist the distraction when I should be doing coursework.

Lol, I've moved my shaman twice since that post. I left DW before you even started playing (I'm feel like an old man :P) first to Twisting Nether, then Emerald Dream.

i saw TBC in hmv for £25.

Yes, that is odd.. Grangier Games is a cool local game shop around newcastle. Sells you the whole bunch for 20 odd quid, TBC and WoW. This.. chest crap.. not worth it.

First weekend back on WoW and got my tier 5 shoulders. ha!

However ADSL is very up and down, though they have said it is like this when its first installed, and smoothens out over the next week or so.

Anybody able to vouche for virgin adsl from their own experience, dont link other peoples experiences please. Just your own. Or ADSL in general.

Im on "up to 8MB" ADSL.

I also have "up to 8mbit" ADSL (not virgin though, they kinda don't exist in Sweden), and it's very stable most of the time. When testing badwidth, I almost always have about 6mbit, but it often goes above that when DLing stuff.
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: MDX on October 30, 2007, 06:12:04 pm
I tested and got it at 6MB yday morning. So i know theres something lurking.

I will post progress after next 10 days, hopefully something sexy is on its way. Like.. lagless net.

I remembered I needed to post a shot of my character. My old FTP finally went down and I haven't set up my new one...

So I signed up for image shack or some such, but I never did get an email to open my account last night. I haven't checked today, I'll do it when I get home. With some luck I'll be able to post my toon. :P

Edit: Still no email, what a joke. :\

I finally dinged 70 last night. A few friends helped me take down a Fel Reaver in Hellfire Peninsula - hurray for dinging in style!
I took a screenshot of this epic moment (my first level 70 :D), and I thought I would share it with you.

/me pokes his Armory profile

You will see that I wear two pieces of mail armor, the rest is plate.
Most cloth healing gear has spirit instead of mp5, which makes it much less useful for a healing paladin as myself, since we have no "mana regen while casting" talent. Also, I like to be able to take a few hits without going down ^^
Title: Re: World of Warcraft
Post by: Lysix on November 02, 2007, 06:06:37 pm
try wearing cloth and healing. the second i get aggro, unless the tank knows how to play, its game over. considering how elites hit for around 1k, and my shield absorbs little over that..

Post by: evilcandybag on November 03, 2007, 02:44:48 am
Well, since they've fixed so that there actually are a lot of good plate healing items in TBC, this is not really a problem. It was worse pre TBC, where there were almost no plate healing stuff that weren't set pieces. It always felt like a stab in the heart when a paladin nicked a leather healing item.

So, I just started an arena team with a rogue, and I must say it is pretty cool. None of us have ever played in the arenas before and our gear is mediocre at best, and yet we end up with 11 wins and 15 losses for our first session of arena-ness. Most of the losses involved warlocks with full or partial arena gear... Was really fun though, and we're definately gonna keep on doing this stuff.

Hehe thanks. Unfortunately, even with all that gear the arena is still very limited for me. Hunters only have synergy with certain classes (2v2 our synergy is with a priest, we can make wicked mana burn teams. Warlocks if specced properly (Demonology/Destruction for survivability and burst) can work okay too since we can burst down most targets through almost any type of healer).

Unfortunately, my girlfriends main 70 (who is geared as equally as my character) is a Frost Mage and our synergy in 2v2 is very low. I do pretty good in our 5v5 though. We had a warlock in our 2v2 and cracked 2100 with him, but he left WoW. We're about to crack back open 2k though with a Shadow Priest, unfortunately for me though the Shadow Priest and the Frost Mage honestly seem to have a bigger advantage over most teams than me as a hunter and the shadow priest have (though any warrior team we'll tear down in seconds, we absolutely destroy warrior/paladin, warrior/resto druid, etc. Unfortunately warlock/spriest and warlock/rogue can be tricky for us - it's always close, but thanks to sl/dl/sl spec and healthstones they have a pretty good chance of coming out on top just barely. Now with 2.3 coming, however, the buffs to hunter may make me reconsider calling him my "alt" over my new warlock I'm growing. I'll be a major asset to our 5v5 team over just burst and CC/healer disruption having mortal shot on aim shot & arcane dispel. My viability with my frost mage partner will also increase since the minimum range is being lowered, making it far more difficult to LOS kite a hunter around pillars and giving me more room to shoot in a limited space arena. Not to mention the dispel helping disrupt priests and mages. Aimed shot can also begotton off in 2v2 with a frost mage if its critical, its not worth the effort right now though - but in 2.3, it would be.

We'll see how that goes, I spose. But I'm excited about that patch.

My other half dinged her BE Pally to 70 yesterday (she's got a full glad maxed out BE Frost Mage already). She started her pally before I started my 'Lock, but I dinged him to 50 and some change last night too. Just gunna try to plow him to outlands and start working on gearing him. If hes as fun at 70 as he is at 50 I may consider
