Lich King Engine
(Cross-posted with rindis because I'm too primitive to have an editor that'll post this to both.)

Well, WoW went to v3.0 yesterday.

It's different. I don't remember the Burning Crusade engine being quite so big of a shock, character-wise.

Hunters have changed a lot. The fact that Scatter Shot is now a 10-point talent in Surivival makes sense (I always thought it was a little odd in Marksmanship, but it worked well with the 'utility' feel that BC Marksmanship had), but it caught me flatfooted. Since I've been needing that to survive a trap that breaks early, Dunain is currently invested in a little Survival rather than Beast Master, and won't be trying Chimera Shot until 71.

Everything else is weird. The reactive abilities have had that stripped out. Mongoose Bite no longer requires a dodge before I use it and Kill Command no longer needs a crit. Instead they're just on timers.

Aimed Shot has been massively depowered. In fact, it really doesn't do much more than anything else, and less than Multishot does per shot. It's pretty much Arcane Shot with a 'no heal' debuff now. The good news is it's now an instant. However, it shares a cooldown with Multishot now. The only shot with a cast time I have now is Steady Shot. I should check if they fiddled with that.

Aspect of the Viper changed, but is still pretty sick. Before it increased mana regeneration, with the effect getting stronger the lower the hunter's mana was. It meant that it was effectively impossible to run Dunain out of mana for more than a few seconds. Now, it halves damage done, but returns mana per shot (I approve of the idea of making it a real choice). I was getting back ~380 mana per shot, and interestingly, I got mana back on each hit with a Multishot. ~380x3 - ~340 for Multishot = ~700 mana profit. When out of mana, it will get a hunter going again even faster than before.

Lance is very different. I'm noticing the AI seems to have changed, and he *sometimes* charges a target as soon as I attack. (Or else I'm way too used to hitting control-1 now.) Don't know why sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn't. I'm going to have to study this and try to understand what the heck he thinks he's doing.

The guild managed a quick run through Heroic Steam Vaults last night to see how things were working.

The only way I could tell that it was Heroic is that we got Badges of Justice off the bosses. I know that SV is a really weak Heroic, but... this was a pushover.

Part of it is definitely Blanc. They have really upped the DPS on Protection Warriors.

5-maning ZG fun!
So a group of my guildies were on the other night doing our typical:

"Wanna run something?"


"Anything you wanna run?"

"I don't know. Anything I guess. What do you wanna run?"

*shrug* "I don't know. What do you wanna run?"

wash. rinse. repeat.

So I chimed up. "I've never seen most of ZG. Why not that?"

"Can we 5-man that at lvl 70?"

"If not, we should come close."

Okay! And off to Zul'Gurub we went. A Tank, Holy priest, Rogue, Tankadin, and Drood. Failed on the Bat Boss. Smacked the Snake Boss pretty good. And took a late-comer (our resident Frost-Mage) for the Tiger take-down.

And here's the movie to prove it. (Needs the DivX web-player to stream)

While we probably couldn't take the whole thing 5-man, many sections proved doable. Just over 5-man (like a 7 or 8-man) could easily take the dungeon, while still providing a challenge that keeps players on their toes.

All and all a really fun evening, hanging with my guildies. ^.^

This isn't a dead community, is it? That would suck... Anyways...

That (in game) name's Sabe, or Sabeliana, if you prefer. I'm a level 37 human Pally... i think 37. I haven't played in months. *sob* My accounts been suspended. Anyways, anyone here in the guild School of Death? It would help me out a lot if you could help me out... Like, a lot. :D

EDIT: Omg, I totally forgot... Do any of y'all know Darkpally? Or, you know, if you see him around could you tell him to come talk to me through this community.

Burning Crusade getting closer...?
At ComicCon I asked the Blizzard crew there when I might expect to see the WoW expansion come out.

The official word, "When it's ready."

While encouraging from one perspective, with Blizard's past history that means it might be a couple of years.

However, Gamespot reports that the expansion is indeed in alpha testing. There's still the question of how far along in Alpha it is, but it has at least escaped from the developers and convention kiosks.

Ever since I've transferred servers, all I've had were problems. I can't get a pickup group, server crashes every 20 minutes, BGs are never up and if they are it's 10 ally vs. 1 horde, my reputation is basically ruined, and I have no chance of finding a raiding guild with my friends. I wish I was back on Uther, it was a lot better there. My friend told me that it might be as bad as Uther, but it CAN'T get any worse. He was wrong. Hella wrong.

Le sigh.

Welcome to the LiveJournal community for the new Realm of Muradin!

Feel free to share your questions, stories, comments, and just generally converse.

I do ask that large-ish images be put behind cuts, so those beautiful screen shots don't take up too much room on friend's lists. ~_^

Beyond that, let common sense prevail. It's a game, and let's all have fun together.
