Re: Enrage and King of the Jungle

It's great on Shannox since taunts don't work, YOu shouldn't be taunting or swapping tanks on Shannox anyway. One tank tanks shannox, one tanks riplimb, and you drop your stacks by having them far away from each other and dropping stacks during the spear throws. I do think it's a very good talent; ...

Re: 4.2 druid specific staff + firecat

You have to do the first four before Baleroc. So the order has to be (shannox, beth, aly, rhy)->bale->fandral->rag. Of those first four, Shannox is the best start as he's linked to a tON of trash. Our guild did Shannox->beth->rhy->aly. Beth was probably the easiest of the 4 and was a 3-shot. Shannox...

They're underbudget because they have less secondary stats than similar legs. And all secondary stats are valued the same now, so it's not that.

Re: 4.2 changes

For raiders (at least 25 man) the tokens were a huge annoying hurdle. They'd have to buy their T10 pieces that were so low in ilvl compared to what they could get that they wouldn't actually be using them until they could get them upgraded. So now you're not only running heroic dungeons to get point...

Re: 4.2 changes

No, you misunderstand. People hated the system of loot. There was a lot of grousing at the time about how you had to first buy the tier gear by getting both badges AND a token, but at least the token dropped easily from everyone. But if you wanted to advance you had to get the badges too. It was rea...

Re: 4.2 changes

Rohan on Blessing of Kings made an argument that the best solution is to have VP drop from raids and be mostly how you get gear, and not have VP come from anywhere else. The disadvantage with that is that without the motivation to run heroics regularly - especially folks who don't raid often but do ...

Re: 4.2 changes

So why not just have everything drop via VP? I used to think that way too - that random drops being random sucks. But it's also a major motivator and is a huge reason why WoW has repeatable content. If you went to a system where everything went to VP (and realistically if you make things like all ti...

Re: Sylv's Snippets 4: Are you ready for 4.2

Okay, I'll say it another way. No known vendor sells the patterns. They are not a guaranteed or even random drop from any bosses. They are not a reward from any quest. Now, all of those things could change in the 3 days until the patch. But it's unlikely, and all the other patterns that require raid...

Re: 4.2 Kitty Gear Spreadsheet

Engineering will likely be slightly better or much better depending on burst phases (like Alys' down phase) than anything else due to the ability to combine it with TF; at worst it's as good as any other profession and often it'll be much better assuming your TF uptime is fine. But honestly, it's su...

Re: 4.2 changes

Definitely the chest, gloves and legs are sold. Not sure where the tokens drop from yet for the others. It's a very likely case that shoulders drop from Rag and Head from Fandral, but it's not absolutely set in stone. Ultimately it won't matter; the stuff is fairly easy and the offset pieces that yo...

I honestly wonder if there's any point in doing the grindy daily quests myself personally; yeah they offer 378 patterns eventually Actually they don't; the grindy daily quests only offer 365-level gear and patterns and the new bags. The 378 patterns almost certainly drop from raid drops since they ...

Re: 4.2 Kitty Gear Spreadsheet

Interesting results, and a smidgen counterintuitive at first until you realize how much time is spent on Atra not actually DPSing directly (which would of course favor bleeds). PW is the more interesting result to me - it's very odd that we'd see that the best value is the one where everything is ba...

See, I totally get wanting to get stuff done before the next release and before it's been nerfed either actually or effectively via gear.

But they didn't do jack! They could have at least done it with a guild that has progressed with them and felt some level of accomplishment. It's not like 4.2 is sooooo much easier than 4.1, and they're not nerfing the heroic raids. So...yeah. I don't get it at all. They can say they saw it, but they...

I just...don't get that at all. Why would you pay two weeks before the next patch to go 13/13 and then come back? In a couple weeks most of the heroic content is going to be far easier due to all the 4.2 gear that folks will get, and there will be time to do that stuff later. Why do it now at all? T...

Welp, we managed to do Sinestra and are now 12/13 with AA done on 10 man. Not a lot of excitement for a week on AC. Still, that's pretty good. As far as melee vs ranged, melee is okay on Rhyolith and not great on Alyrazor. From what I've seen melee (especially cleaving/AoEing melee) is good on Ragna...

Re: 4.2 Kitty Gear Spreadsheet

Maybe it's not a big deal but it's still an imbalance between classes that could cripple us in addition to our usual problem of positioning for Shred. How on earth does not getting a drop from the last boss in a tier cripple a feral? The only effect this is going to have is on the following tier. I...

Ah, you're right; instead of multiplying by 8/5 I should be multiplying by 18/15. Doing that results in a 20.37% gain, which is significantly lower (but still very strong).

Re: 4.2 changes

While I haven't tested it, I also suspect that the initial hit of rake will also ignore armor completely. This is similar to how thrash works right now.

It should also mean that using rake early will not be so big of a loss.

Re: 4.2 changes

No, I wasn't - I was just comparing directly what that change was to give a rough estimate on a fight with a lot of melee damage. With the strength nerf that's probably closer to the 5% bump ferals got, but it's still very good. Note that the SR glyph was unchanged (5%), so it has no specific extra ...
