Murlocs revealed! - Frost on 2/22/06

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/misc/murloclore/images/murloc.jpg Shrouded in mystery, the murlocs have shunned mortals, congregating in shoreline tribes and villages. Far older than most believe, some evidence suggests that their steady encroachment of the world's land masses may be a coordinated effort which belies their reputation as unintelligent creatures. Could it be that the recent emergence of the murlocs and naga from their watery abodes is evidence of the awakening of something far more terrifying in the murky fathoms? Learn more...

How? Instead of using talent points to make it a 15 second debuff, the spell now naturally comes with a 15 second debuff instead of the 30 seconds? It absorbs more damage now, and it is affected by +healing gear! I'd say it was a hell of a buff of PW:S.

Artha
02-25-2006, 07:54 AM

Didn't they pwn it taking fall damage tho? I Havn't played my priest in what is almost a year now.. time to dust him off when patch rolls I guess.

Axhinde
02-25-2006, 12:58 PM
Eyonix stated that with 1.10, PW:S will come with the flat 15 second weakened soul debuff, and +healing gear will increase the amount absorbed. As far as fall damage, you shouldnt be taking any as a priest. Levitate ftw!

Edit: Inner Fire will be changed also. It'll be on a 10 minute timer instead of 3, mana cost will reflect this. On the downside, it only lasts for 20 hits. So, in a PvP situation, it received a huge nerf, but in a raid it received a huge buff.

Why the new server wide LFG chat sucks:

It has introduced a game wide spam opportunity. I can see it as a great 'call to arms' tool when being invaded by a group of opposing force in a specific area that does not have many high level players around.

It was used lastnight when a 12 man horde group invaded westfall, next thing you know a whole squadron of birds landed from SW to deal with it.

So there's some advantages, just not enough to outweigh the spamming. It kind of reminds me of a lesser OOC channel on psinet.

Wezas
06-21-2006, 12:15 PM
Make a world defense channel (I thought there already was one). And put those type of attacks on there.

I would be up for IF/SW/Darnassus sharing a LFG channel.

But if I'm in Lakeshire, I don't give a shit if they need a mage for a LBRS run.

Artha
06-21-2006, 12:21 PM
It's a fucktarded idea. Only way it would be useful is for raids and such, as regular quests are mostly area-specific. Throwing those messages in with raid messages and general 'global chat', and I'd bet it gets nearly impossible to find a group for some elite boss in Un'Goro or the Loch. Nobody's using it for groups from what I saw last night, so it's essentially become a global general, while general and trade have been inundated with LFG messages.

Solution: Global Looking For Raid channel, LFG back to local.

Wezas

The funniest argument was a person looking for a Deadmines group who said "LFG DM" and another person bitched at him and told him to use "LFG VC" because people thought he meant Diremaul.

It got pretty ugly.

And on top of all that, all those other servers that were down made the fucktards join in.

I think you have to be of a certain rank to speak on the world defense channel, because I remember a time that there was a guy spamming about joining him to do some stupid shit and I wanted to tell him to shut up and couldn't.

Rank 11 for world defense, I believe.

Tsa`ah
06-21-2006, 06:25 PM
Every channel is blocked with the exception of speech and guild related channels.

At this point I only open up world and local defense channels if I'm bored, trade when I'm looking to buy something ... and that's about it.

As a reminder of why I do this, I logged on to my locker toon (that I've been too lazy to block channels with since I'm not on it that long) to see the LFG channel look like the Barrens chat, some idiot spamming "Evil Poptarts" acceptance of all levels in their guild on every channel they could, chinese farmers spamming their wares every 20 seconds and kids that could probably benefit from the year round school system wanting to buy something every 5 seconds. Which of course reminded me of why World defense is blocked ... because tards like Soultagon make rank and like to start crap thinking that maybe 10 people are able to respond to him.

I'm just a happier camper not reading the wall of incessant babble that reminds me of the amunet in GS.

Also: http://www.wowwiki.com/Patch_3.1.2

So they're changing WG quests to weekly? That blows. And the honor reduction blows bigtime. WG is a primary method used to gear up alts, between honor and shards.

The item level for vehicles thing is nice for me since I have a set I wear specially when I drive but I think it will hurt in WG since the gear levels there are so varied. Some fresh 80 will end up with a siege engine with less health than a warrior, lol.

Methais

The dumbest part of it is that's apparently their solution to fix the lag.


In an effort to better balance the amount of players that are in Wintergrasp at any given time, we are changing the daily quests in Wintergrasp to a weekly format.

Trouble
05-19-2009, 01:06 PM
Lol. Yes there are people who only go to WG once per day to get the dailies in, but most people in my guild who go at all go multiple times per day (like myself).

However, if they nerf the honor enough between weekly quests and per-objective nerfs (in the mmo article) I may back off my WG participation.

Horde-side on our server we rarely have more than one raid anyway. On weekends we'll usually have two. Alliance have bazillions though.

Methais
05-19-2009, 02:42 PM
Fortunately I'm almost done with the honor grind for now, but they still need to raise the honor reward for the WG quests. 3,700 or whatever it was isn't enough for a weekly when the daily would give 1,200.

Does Melissa still work for Blizzard? Maybe she dropped Warden a call for consulting.

My current 2s partner is a RL friend with down's syndrome (not really, but sometimes I think Trig Palin might be better at WoW pvp).

And some of the existing stuff, since when I picked up the current xpac I capped, grinded some heroics and then got bored and quit again before any content patches came out.

Thinking of jumping on a vanilla server too, but I'm pretty sure not having any of the QOL upgrades they've added since vanilla is going to kill that for me pretty quick once the nostalgia wears off.

I have been dedicated to the Scarlet Crusade server since vanilla. There was a good number of gemstone players that started on that server back in the day. I just don't think I can make it through another xpac even though this story plot would be a perfect fit for my UD warrior. Kind of sucks knowing you can't pull your weight like you once could, will see come fall. Most likely if I do pick up the expansion I'll play a resto druid or an UD priest, I can still do a pretty good job in those roles.

So is this just the latest expansion pack with run of the mill improvements or is this something much more epic? I haven't seen this much hype for a WoW expansion pack since the first expansion pack.

I really haven't looked into the details, I'm just really digging the story line.I'm also jonesing for some PvP.

Been telling myself I wouldn't pick up this xpac and hold out for classic servers, but fuck man, knowing Sylvanas has gone full tilt (or seems to have)...it has me hooked.

It'll take a while to level to 110. If you have a lot of gold you can buy/upgrade heirlooms to 100, maybe 110 if they updated it. Rotations are 4, maybe 5 buttons mostly. No real need to play old content unless you really want to see it.

I do kind of want to do all of the old content, but mostly because I'm a completionist and an achievement whore. But I suppose I can always do the old stuff later when I'm capped and just breeze through it all.

Been playing my Blood Elf paladin, the game has been pretty fun and I'm liking all of the changes they have made that make finishing quests so much damn easier. No more worrying about "tagging" a critter to get credit/loot it, minimap showing exactly where quest objectives are and even shows the zone where quest critters can spawn in. Not to mention looting one corpse now loots all nearby corpses. Blizzard is really good about fixing their shit for the better.

I also like how they have condensed the skills and only make some of them available depending on your specialization, makes the toolbars a lot less cluttered. The talent tree redesign is awesome too. I've missed so much in the past 7 years since I've last played.

The way they have decided to redo profession skills in this expansion pack is awesome too. I don't have to worry about going through the old content to level up my professions so I can get caught up, each expansion pack has its own set of profession skill levels so I can start leveling my professions in the new content right away.

Now the only problem is do I want to keep engineering/jewelcrafting on my paladin or lose one and pick up mining? I think my druid has both mining and herbalism and does all of the gathering for me, but then I would have to level him up :/

Cool, freeze traps is all I ever really cared about. Last xpac only survival had traps and had to be melee. I played beast master but it took all the fun out of a hunter for me without having traps. May end up waiting a couple weeks yet though, just don't have the time this time of year to start playing. Things should start slowing down a bit in a few weeks.

So I've blown through all of the new content (all but heroic dungeons) and have 310/320 gear in all slots, and now I'm just doing world dailies and thinking about trying a heroic or two.

Now I'm not sure what to do. Dip my toe into heroics to see how that goes (I've just been faking my way through regular dungeons on my prot paladin and relying on Deadly Boss Mods to tell me what to do)? Try my hand at PvP after 7 years away? Just keep grinding out them world quests? Level up an alt? Go back and do all of the content I missed in the past 3 expansion packs?

I had a lot of fun doing all of the new content but I think I blew through it a bit too fast.

Some of the world quest gear is blue items of level 310 or 320.

Where do I unlock the new races? I thought people can already unlock them?

I also just did Heroic Motherlode, it was way easier than I thought it would be and even easier than when I did it on normal. I guess I got a group who knew what they were doing, not sure how the next heroic is gonna go.

All my stuff is either crafted gear (300) or some of the early rep stuff (320ish) and nothing that's shown up for me has been above 300 so far.

The new new races (Zandalari trolls, Mag'har orcs, Fat humans, and Dark Iron dwarves) aren't released yet, but they'll probably require some form of BfA loremaster or maybe rep.

There are two rogue class quests that have you go to capital cities, the first IIRC is instanced and you can hide in bales of hay or something to drop aggro. The second isn't and you have to assassinate targets while dodging guards and other players. Go sub so you can shadowstep, you'll probably be corpsewalking a lot on that one.

Diablo 3 started this trend in the series with its PC iteration, though the console ports do not require that players be online. Diablo 4 will require that even console players always be online, meaning PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players won't be free of this requirement this time around.Nov 5, 2019

From their “hiring coders with MMO experience” ads on their careers site to the WoW guy literally becoming the head honcho over at Blizzard, this thing will literally be an MMO.
