World of Randomness
I tend to write about one thing at a time, but sometimes there’s too little to be said about far too many things, so here’s a post with - can you guess - random stuff.
- Warlock Tier 7 is leaked! You know the post I made awhile back with a video of Tier 7 - I got no idea if that really is T7 or not, but we still have no reason to believe it’s not. The image attached was sent to me by IM so I got no idea who made it, but it would be a sin not to share it anyway. Click the image for a bit larger view.
- Kalgan rerolled a paladin, which explains the extreme amounts of damage they deal in Wrath beta. There’s a whole bunch of similar videos, so if this one amuses you just keep watching responses and related vids.
- Three Druid Noob has a couple of posts about multiboxing macros. Although I’m not a big fan of multiboxing, this explains a few things.
- Less PewPew more QQ or something like that posted a video of the reworked hunter ability Disengage. It now leaps the hunter 13 yards backwards, and has a 30 second cooldown. Talk about yet another ability to keep people at bay. How about making our Soulshatter do the same? Self knockback ftw!
- Wrath of the Lich King cinematic trailer released. I hear Blizz has 80 employees who’s only job is to make these awesome movies. I’m a big fan of Blizzard’s vids ever since I played Diablo 2; in terms of quality, this is probably their best one yet.
- A Dwarf Priest is trying to save the whales. An excellent summary of shadow priest issues and interesting advice about fixing them. There’s also a useful recent post about priest tricks to which I’d like to add a couple of things, but let this be an advice to you: the worst thing you can do for your blog is not enable anonymous comments. There’s plenty of Wordpress plugins available to fight spam.
- Saresa takes a giant leap for Wowkind and delves into something new. I’ll probably be banned from her site after saying this, but she’s pretty hot.
- The asshat scale from Unpack Your Adjectives one of the best reads lately.
- I haven’t seen this much math since… ever. If you’re wondering whether HoTs are still hot, click the link and try not to feint. I wish my readers gave me beta keys…
- Siha has the what now dilemma. If you’re bored and need motivation to play till Wrath, that post and the comments might give you a few ideas.
- If you still haven’t seen Road to Blizzcon, you don’t know what you’re missing. When I saw #7 (wood floats!) and #9 (faster Doodles, faster!) I totally laughed my ass off. The only critique is there should be more Mr. Horns (see #14), and it should be me! If anyone’s connected, can you hook me up?
From the beta
Although I try to avoid writing about beta changes as much as possible, there’s some interesting ones in the latest build. Here’s a few highlights from Mmo-champion.
- Mace Specialization changed for both rogues and warriors. I’m sure many people will be happy about it, since it no longer stuns. Rogue’s new version increases critical strike damage bonus when using maces by 10% - that’s kinda contrary to what resilience does but we’ll see how it works out. Warrior’s version now has a chance to generate 10 rage.
- New PvP trinkets with *drumroll* 84 resilience
- Warriors are getting some talent revamps, including a passive ‘mortal strike’ effect, and some good changes to the fury tree - it might actually be pretty viable for PvP. Titan’s Grip penalty is removed, and Heroic Leap is moved to tier 9. With the recent change in cooldown to their currently 30 minute CD oh-shit abilities, they will surely be even a bigger menace.
- Warlock glyphs are in the house, but I’ll talk about that in the next post.
- Smatter broke a record with 37 comments on his latest post
- WoW Search has over 300 various blogs and websites at the moment (if you don’t know what it is read more here). If I forgot to add your site be sure to let me know, it’s hard to keep track of all.
- Not that you care, but there’s a bit over 400 RSS subscribers now. If you’re still refreshing this site all the time like a noob it’s time for you to learn more about RSS and subscribe to the feed.
