6.0.2., and I don't understand my class any more
No, I haven't played yet, obviously, but I studied the Icy Veins rotation guide, and unless I'm missing something it seems frost mages will be much weaker in raids henceforth. The way I read it, in Living Bomb we lose our only chance to put DoTs on multiple spread-out non-trivial targets. The new guides basically advise us to pick a single target in such situations, except for using glyphed Cone of Cold when possible, but that's kind of meaningless save against trash and doesn't even cover targets really spread out. So far I used to do the bulk of my raid damage with LB and I don't quite see how we can make up for this when I can only attack one target at a time. So didn't they take away one of our most powerful tools without giving us a lot in return? What's a mage to do? I'm sort of really confused. And of course there's the new order of talents and all that, and I haven't even started yet to sort this out, and the complicated conditions for the new Frost Bomb, and Deep Freeze is becoming sort of meaningless and Alter Time too, but the loss of LB really bothers me. And while I'm thinking about CC (not really related, I admit), what's the use anyway in raids? Whenever I put freeze or polymorph on a mob, it's instantly broken by someone else's attack.18
I've been playing WoW since the beginning of TBC, I've paid thousands of dollars in expansion and subscription fees over two accounts. Now with WoD launching near Christmas I'm not even considering coming back. I just want to put this out there so the developers know how disrespectful it is against the people that has spent that amount of money on the game, to not even be allowed to log in!! It's greedy beyond belief and I /spit on the ground. WoW is on a downwards spiral. Population will increase after WoD like every expansion, but after 3-4 months you'll be back to the downwards spiral you were from before. Most likely in a more rapid rate then ever, because new games are coming out, other free to play alternatives are improving, and people will only come back to give this game one more chance that many times. Enough is enough. I would say it is sad to see a giant slowly die like that, but when you're this greedy I can't say I actually feel sorry for you when it's over. It's a 10 year old game for crying out loud. $190 a year, not even including expansion packs? Keep sucking money from your subs like the leeches you are. PEACE!6
Assorted questions from a new healer
(The healer is my resto druid, currently level 72, but will be 90 in time for WoD, I hope.) 1) Is there an easy way to see the dungeon roles (tank etc.)? It's probably obvious, but I don't see it. In raid frames they have an icon, but I don't see anything in the unit icons in a dungeon. Until yesterday I thought the topmost item was always the tank, but it isn't. I also use grid and there is an add-on that should put marker on tanks and healers, but I haven't managed to get it working yet. 2) In a raid (not there yet, but I'm already thinking about it) how do you know who to heal? In a dungeon it's obvious as people need hardly any heals most of the time and you can easily keep five people healed, as bosses don't have abilities that wipe entire parties (no bosses that I've seen yet anyway). But in a raid where you can have 25 people take heavy damage all at once, who heals whom? I've read that raids may assign healers individual targets, but can't say I've seen it happen. On the contrary, as a DPS, when my health dropped quickly in a raid I've usually been over-healed by several different people all at once. 3) Vaguely related: likewise as a DPS in some raids I've been advised to stand close to a healer. That would make sure I'm not out of range of at least one healer, of course. But now from the healer's perspective, there is no way of telling who takes damage by looking at the screen; you have to look at the frames or grid. But then you don't know where people stand. So how would a healer ever heal preferably people s/he is standing close to? That confuses the hell out of me. 4) About aggro. Ideally I try to put 3 Lifeblooms, a Cenarion Ward, and a Rejuvenation on the tank before he engages (if he waits for me to do that), then tick another Rejuvenation if necessary, and be ready to cast Swiftmend if things go badly wrong. But usually the tank won't wait for me to do all that. What then? If I fire that entire program while he is building aggro I am certain to take it from him (the aggro). Conversely, if I don't do that and he takes a heavy beating I have nothing to build on. What's the best course? 5) If I'm attacked by adds as a healer, what's the best course of action? Sometimes running towards the tank seems to work. Sometimes I need Shadowmeld to shed the aggro. Also, sometimes I die, usually causing a wipe. 6) Vaguely related, where should a healer stand? My natural tendency is to keep behind the DPS since I'm not attacking, but that means I'm lagging behind when the party moves and then the tank outruns me. Should I stand close to the tank once he has the aggro?18
Would I like the monk?
For me it seems, like one of blizzards latest pet classes, death knight, comes to mind. I like the mechanics of the warrior, very offensiv and "in your face" like. The rogue also has it's charm. I know, from fightining monks with my warrior, they can be a pain in the !@#, mostly because I don't know their abilitys, and I find them a bit meh like, because of their fighting style. It's not very "manly". How does the monk compare to those two(warrior, rogue), when you actually play the class?7
Guild for beginners!
Hello there! My girlfriend and I recently created a new guild on the server Grim Batol for the Alliance called < The Round Table >. This is a social / casual guild where everybody is welcome! We hope to have some new wow players joining us so we can help you out! :) We will eventually be doing some small guild raid / pugs, as well as pvp events, etc. We will also try to go through old content for xmog, mounts, and achievments! I myself have 8 years of experience with wow. At least 5-6 of those were spent on serious raiding as well as earning decent pvp tittles :) So for anyone out there who's looking for a new home, our doors are open :) We do, however, have some strict rules: - No racism of any kind is allowed - No sexism of any kind is allowed - Respect everyone, regardless of rank or ability - No excessive swearing. - And just generally behave, be nice :) There are no age limits, but we would prefer people who can act mature in guild chat and such :) So to sum this up: If you are new to the game, or are just looking to make new friends in a friendly environment. We will help you out :) If you need help with your class / spec, just need somone else to play with, or just want a boost, this is the place for you :) You can add me on battletag (Warex#1944) if you want to know more or just want an invite :) Or head over to our new guild site :) - http://theroundtable.guildlaunch.com/ Hope to see you soon! - Warex4
