This garbage has got to be some of the dumbest shit I have EVER seen in this game rofl
Are you fucking joking? the retarded set bonuses don't even have a cd, you literally have 100% uptime on starfall, throw out starsurges constantly and is permenently immune to silence/interrupt.
and if you choose to hit a moonkin they become enraged and do even more dmg

what a disgusting abomination

#4284123 S16 Day one - The good/bad/ugly - What blizzard can do and why they should.

Posted Np- on 03 December 2014 - 03:55 PM

TL:DR:
Lots of positive changes, some things left unweeded out, understandable they were not weeded out yet, however minor changes should happen immediately the cycle of 0 changes for entire seasons need to change. Minor in-season changes, major new season is acceptable.


1. WoW will never be perfect, but they can try.

Let's get one thing out of the way, WoW is a gigantic game with a gigantic range of activity's people enjoy, and all these groups are paying customers to a for-profit company. This means they have an interest in improving the user experience for all these aspects, but keep in mind no matter their income they simply just will likely never have a large enough staff to keep all content perfect or even close. There is simply not that many qualified individuals for hire to keep demand for an improved user experience fast enough for what we ideally want.


2. The good in WoD / S16.

Blizzard has shown interest in taking more feedback from the PvP community regarding game design changes that directly impact PvP only. They have implemented a lot of good changes over-all from player feedback too, so not all talk. Some things people seem to almost universally enjoy:

-Rewards from skirmishes and battle grounds(and skirmishes to start with added back)+arena/rbg points.

I enjoy hoping for that 626 ilvl item from the gold box or an extra piece of lower gear to help me along my way gearing, and if not gold is better than nothing. I'll just add here RBG/arenas giving the same points is a big bonus too.

-The overall reduction of instant game breaking CC's/CC drs.

It's not perfect - some bad balance changes that go against this are still here, such as disc silence, but as a whole I find my game to be much less frustrating win or lose to die in a blanket CS, pom sheep, ns clone, shadow fury howl, etc. I think most people do too. I also enjoy things like clone/fear DRing, as it encourages cross CC over CCing one target forever making  him have no fun. Cloning one guy fearing another is a lot more attractive.

-Healing : damage ratios

Outside of more extreme cases, I typically feel much more happy about healing output compared to overall damage. When I face a less competent team often I am able to pressure for extended periods of time with out having to pop all my cds and kill them in 4-10 seconds or watch them hover at 90-100% even while playing poorly.



3. The bad I think personally in s16.

I can understand why some of these balance changes were overlooked giving how much they had to change and the staff issues I mentioned above. However, now that they are fully noticed on live servers at the very least minor changes need to go out quicklyish. Many people re-subbed for WoD with the hopes(and not blind hope, some things have changed) blizzard has improved in many ways, this is their chance to not let the same process repeat it's self in PvP of balance taking far far too long, minor ones now, majors later, atleast.

-Passive ability's which are too strong need to go.

The main culprit here is wings from ret paladins. Passively reducing cc by 50% during their dps cooldown at no cost to them is too strong and no fun for anyone, really. I'm not sure but I think spirit bond is fairly strong at no cost right now too, though not op.

-Hunter, ret, feral, dk.

-Some minor changes need to be made right away to these classes. We can not expect them to redesign 4 classes 1 day into live but some minor adjustments should really happen, fast.

-Hunter: I think the main issue here is kill shot damage, and I think trap needs to have more counter play(small cast time, maybe). Hunters are a ranged class, and break the general idea of ranged are disadvantaged by casting often but get benefit of range while melees ability's have no cast but need close quarters to use. There should be a trade off larger than it is for long CC ability's as a ranged class.

-Ret: Remove CC reduction during wings. Make sac CD increased by 15(longer later, if needed)if you successfully sac some one out of a current CC they are in.

Feral: Mostly a nerf to heals, see how that goes.

DK: Strong but my main gripe is only how long and how short of cds their CC immunity's are. A little more counter play / time they can be possibly CC'd should be a bit higher, i think, some kind of CD increase on one or more of their ams/ibf/desc grounds abilitys.

RANT BELOW!!!! WARNING!!

Side note/rant on Mages: Their playstyle is mostly hated right now. The best example I can give is if I am playing RLS mirror lets say - the enemy rsham pushes in too greedily for purges and my lock jukes a counter spell and kick. The sham being in a bad spot I kidney him/spam back stab and my lock dots, haunts, and channels drain soul cause he juked the interrupts, we force large pressure, with out having to pop dances/on uses/demoulsouls etc. Cd's, or peels, or gigantic investment in recovering time will be needed if we capitlize on their misttake and our good play.

Now RMD - vs RLD. We just bursted their druid with ice novas/orb. He used some cds and lived, and he goes to a poor position and is just doing what ever with out thought. We juke CS and kick once again, and decide to punish their lack of positioning/wasting their interrupts. I kidney the druid, spam back stabs, having just used orb/ice nova to try and burst, he is forced to spam frost bolts. Instead of giant pressure for the outplay and bad play on their end, he comes out at 70% hp and all is fine.

Solution: Frost mage needs a non cooldown casted ability that is threatening if left alone in the open with teamate help. Buffing frost bolt, nerfing ice nova dmg sounds good to me.



#4279423 Why don't you have a Girlfriend Junkie?

Posted Esiwdeer on 29 November 2014 - 07:37 PM

For me personally, having a girlfriend would mean I made a mistake in most cases. Although I am driven to lust after women in a rather unfair and.. hormonal way, I am capable of restraining myself sufficiently to realize how few women are actually worthy of me in a relationship.

I don't mean that egotistically, I just feel like I haven't met any person that made me feel like I didn't need to meet anymore people. Too many guys find girls who are simply hot enough, and try to make the rest work. A lot of you guys are pretty young, but lives start getting real heavy towards the end of long term relationships. All the bad shit that is going to happen to you in your life is going to happen to you, most likely, because of a relationship.

Should only settle down with women that you really like, shouldn't look at having a girlfriend like it's some job that needs to be done at all times by some woman. Being independent can't be undervalued or understated. The longer you live with women, the lazier you'll become.

Hear me now, believe me later I guess. Good luck, boys.

#4259587 About to order a new chair - MAXNOMIC

Posted Esiwdeer on 10 November 2014 - 01:26 AM

#1 ridiculously overpriced for a chair, if you are looking for a luxury item you could get an actual office luxury item for the same price - leather, suede, who knows. actual quality

#2 don't buy gaming shit. the only reason to spend extra money on a chair is for specifics: arm rests, head rests, lumbar support, height, and the style of wheels

i have had both of those chairs, and my favorite of all the 'gaming' chairs is this one:

https://www.google.c...Q_AUoAg&dpr=0.9

as i said, i liked this one for wc3 because the micro was intensive and the arm rests were very important, plus the style of wheel was better for my hardwood floor

BUT I DIGRESS

buying ANY razer, steelseries - ANY COMPANY THAT TARGETS GAMERS is a waste of money ALWAYS. Alienware, IBuyPower, etc - all garbage.

buy OFFICE supplies. you can spend lots of money for luxury computer items and actually get your money's worth. i have been a gamer nerd for nearly 10 years, i have bought everything from sennheiser to astro to those chairs to the one i linked, definitely learned from experience and the hard way

but my advice is to get a better chair, even costco has better ones than that. they aren't nice, they just look nice. the wheels are garbage, they squeaked and croaked immediately after the assembly, just gross

pick a quality in a chair that is important to you, and shop intelligently from there. if you're just looking to treat yourself to video game indulgence, i'd suggest upgrading your monitor to 120hz for wow or some of the more expensive keyboard/mouse options

#4230535 What is that garrison in WoD ?

Posted ysnakewoo on 13 October 2014 - 03:11 PM

Basically, Garrisons are kinda necessary, you have 3 levels of Garrisons and you pay everything in gold. With Blizzard's policy of giving every mongoloid a golden medal, WoD brings in quite a bit of cash (for 90-100 leveling it is estimated you are going to get around 6-8k gold).

Garrisons mean that you can "power-level" your professions, you can also use the professions (even if you do not have them) in the sense of WoD - for example, if you have the Enchanter's house, you can DE all of the items from WoD and get the raw materials from them, however, you can only do that for WoD items, you need an "actual" Enchanter to get Spirit or Hypnotic Dust etc.

You can also have a "mine" or a "garden" for the two main gathering professions, namely mining and herbalism. You will slowly get materials that you want (you can put seeds for X herb - I believe you can only gather WoD herbs), same goes for mining, you just send your slaves to mine for you. However, you can't really "farm" this way, so actual gathering will still be top-priority, but there will be no flying mounts throughout the expansion - or at least, none of them have been announced and Blizzard is still contemplating on that idea.

You will need to acquire workers for your farm, and they will bring in special abilities or something like that. I haven't been really reading on that, but expect a guide on what workers would suit your thing the best on PvE hero websites.

Sorry for starting every paragraph with "you" - You can send your workers in Garrison to do various daily quests, from simple dailies onto 5man instances over to transmog runs to full-out raids (you need level 3 Garrison for this), and the loot is guaranteed, however, 5man instances take a day, transmog runs take up to 3 days and full-out raids take 7 days. I believe you can only do this for the old content, not sure. Also, you can do that with your guildies and your guildies' Garrison, so a couple of you can send your Garrison forces to do X raid and get items from it.

You can have an Inn in your Garrison and have up to 3 (I believe) portals to almost anywhere (this might be only applicable to the WoD zones, not sure), so, expect people to camp in their precious little Garrisons.

That's all there is to know about Garrison, if I am wrong, feel free to correct me, I didn't pay that much attention to it, but I wouldn't worry about the "cost" or "complexity" of Garrisons since they are one of the main selling-points for WoD - so they'll make them accessible to all the retards out there.

TL;DR Pandas brought Pokemons, Warlords brought Sims.

Tupac and Biggie faked their deaths and became Daft Punk. It's pretty obvious when you think about it. Both were 90s. Two guys. Why the fuck would two French dudes carry around helmets? Do they have something to hide???
