Setting Raid Boss Difficulty

There has been much debate about raid difficulty, the new nerf, raid mechanics etc. So I was wondering about something. What if on day one a raid or guild could set their own difficulty for each raid boss. For arguments sake it can be set at 70%, 80%, 90% or 100% of normal. Now if you do kill a boss...

Re: Fuzzy Wuzzy was a Qbear!

You mean you have no issues knowing what crap on the ground is good and which to move out of? With all the shiny stuff blizz has made for spell effects it was getting ahrd to know if the green stuff on the ground was good or bad. And now you have purple, green and about 4 other colors. Before I quit...

Re: The Real Story About WOW Changes And Why

Everything you said about Cata is true. However, none of what you said about Cata is related to the changes in threat and some of the other mechanics that Blizzard might change. My post was from a business perspective and is tying together the recent changes that were announced to other facts like t...

The Real Story About WOW Changes And Why

Beware this might be considered a wall of text by some. Skip to the end for a short TL/DR summary. Let me start out by saying that I frist started to play a few months before TBC came out. I quit last February. I played and raided as a tank/healer/dps and loved my feral cat the best. But this analys...

Re: 4.2 changes

I know the differences in gear and scaling. I'm talking about intent of Blizzard. I'll repeat the most important line: We boosted Feral damage to compensate for their losing the attack power from Strength. Net DPS shouldn’t change much overall, though burst may be slightly higher. (We didn’t want to...

None of what I mention is based on paragon or world's top guilds stuff. It is based on my experience for December and January raiding. You are 100% correct that today it doesn't matter much what class you bring to the fight. Almost any group that has decent players with decent gear can do them, espe...

Re: Melee Question Answered by Blizz

But I remember back in December when we tried Magmaw. We failed over and over again. They sat all the melee except for a frost DK and killed it. To me this was basically wrong.

Re: Melee Question Answered by Blizz

Qbear, are you saying that it is OK and a good design that can force a group of classes to have to sit till the rest of the raid is geared? I don't understand your response here. Why shouldn't the melee classes get to experience content at the same time as other classes? To me it was very poor desig...

Melee Question Answered by Blizz

Q: A majority of the fights in T11 favored having little or no Melee DPS. Are there plans to fix this? – Merissa (NA), Espiritu (NA) A: We view this more of a class problem than an encounter problem. It used to be the case that casters really suffered whenever they had to move, which was the penalt...

Re: 4.2 changes

It seems that some argue that it isn't a nerf because Blizz might make other changes. Well all we can deal in is the facts as they are known to all of us. And right now thee change to strength is a nerf. maybe, and it's a maybe only, things will be different in the future. All last summer I and othe...

Re: 4.2 changes

In that case it was a sucky utility for ferals before the patch and it will be bad after the patch. So you can take it off the list of why a RL should take us.

Re: 4.2 changes

On this site and others people made the argument that raids should still take cats because of the utility we bring. In the 4.2 notes there was another nerf that impacted our utility. Innervate will now be useless when cast on anyone other then yourself. 5% vs 20%.

Re: 4.2 changes

It is only a nerf if the change is done in a vacuum. Look how late in the patch cycle for 4.1 the change to cat Swipe happened. You should not judge a patch before it has even hit the PTRs. Leafkiller is right. Let's wait till they also reduce AP from agility as it's clear someone at Blizz has it i...

Re: (Mis)adventures in raid soloing

KT pretty much requires 4 people to do. The reason is his mind controll. he can MC up to 3 people and if everyone is MC'd it resets. The last phase is super easy and 1 decent DPS can solo it but getting there is the real pain.

Re: Patch 4.1 discussion

Looking at the latest patch notes bears are getting some much needed and deserved buffs. Feral Savage Defense now absorbs damage equal to 35% of your attack power for 10 sec instead of reducing the damage taken from the next physical attack. Swipe (Bear) damage has been increased by 75%, from 143 to...

I was reading a real nice two part post by Kalon over at http://wowthinktank.blogspot.com/ regarding the hot topic of going hybrid or not. It included gear, gemming, enchants and spec.

Hacker Attempt?

When logging in to make a post today it said that I had to do the word in the sentence thing because I had tried to logon too many times without success. Seems like someone tried to impersonate me here. Mycky for me that I use a decent password that is different from other sites.

Re: I Miss PUGS

It is true that the number of PUGS increased as the buffs went from 10 to 20 and finally to 30%. But looking back I remember PUGS going on a month after Wrath came out for bosses in Naxx (spider wing for example). Ulduar was less PUGS especially if you didn't count LV boss. But then many players hat...

Rogues can also vanish which is a complete aggro dump. But the real key is tricks.
