In Topic: Affliction Warlock Guide (5.4.7)

10 September 2014 - 12:17 AM

Just come back to WoW after not playing since MoP release, and when it was released I pretty much just leveled and didn't take note of any of the talents/changes.

Great guide, a lot of useful stuff I wasn't aware of (the pandemic thing in particular, so the whole suggested ideal opener with the dots/SB dots and Soul Swapping has improved my pressure significantly in the opener).

The "stress" of having to re-glyph/talent in the starting area every game, which at low MMR with fast queues (especially in 2's) meaning that even having a sip of a drink can be out of the question at times, is something taking some getting used to.

There's still a bunch i'd like to know (as someone said earlier) about ideal gateway placements on various maps etc. But I'm not sure I'm into the game enough to really be bothered learning it all over again, everything seems a bit ridiculous at the moment (general damage, some stupid mechanics being introduced (mages extended block, rogues not coming out of stealth, warriors spell reflecting willy nilly.. blah blah)) so I think I shall accept some noobing around for the time being and wait for WoD.

Best title I've heard yet was "Vile Gladiator".


Lol, can you imagine "Vile Gladiator Vilefic"?

I'm holding out for 'Hurtful Gladiator Hertz'.

In Topic: WoW Before and WoW now comparaison

Fuck, that old Login Screen music takes me straight back to being about 15 having just started playing wow and not having a ground mount and walking round Redridge Mountains for fucking hours being lost as fuck.


Theres was retarded shit every expansion, for me S3/S4 (arena after mace stun and other shit was sorted out) or S6/S7 (wrath before Shadowmourne/LSD with double DFO etc, but after death and decay stun/DK being generally absolutely retarded).

In Topic: Quit mid Cataclysm. Planning on coming back now. What do I need to know?

Yeah I'm planning on playing semi-casual till WoD not really gonna get into pvp before as it seems pretty pointless.

I was thinking I might do this - haven't played since S10. You still on Outland?

In Topic: what happened to this place?

I'd suggest to wait till the next xpac comes around, even MMO-C's WoW forums is "dead" compared to what its normally is.

This is partly true, there's always a point around this time in an expansion where the boards start to get a bit stagnant. It'll probably pick up a little when WoD is released, however the trend over the last expansions has seen the period where forums are active after the expansion release (or even new content/seasons) dwindling shorter and shorter each time. This is probably not helped by 'new' content hardly feeling that new after 10 years of it, and rewards not really feeling that rewarding anymore.

Like somebody above said, after WotLK something happened (whether it be the game being tailored to 'casuals' or the RBG introduction, or ridiculous rating exploiting, gear becoming the main factor in your success meaning that playing alts is not even fun - whatever) that killed (or at least brutally maimed) WoW for a lot of people.


I'm in the same boat as you OP, in that I occasionally come back to have a look here from time to time and wonder whether I might re-sub, just to fill a month or two in between work and uni or whatever, where I have time, but it's never very encouraging.

Not that you'd get a team anyway as gearing up is, by all accounts, ridiculous, and it's the same 10 players occupying the top 50 spots on the ladder nowadays. There is no dipping in and out of WoW now, you either keep up with the curve throughout the xpac, or you wait for the next one.


Makes me v sad.


Edit: Interestingly, it was during WotLK that this forum (in terms of threads with largest amounts of views/replies) was most active. Though I definitely seem to remember it being the most useful (and having the least amount of trolling) in BC.
