    Well wotlk added 10 new levels, cata is adding only 5.

    Really Ghostcrawler is boring me to tears. The idea to have core abilities as level 10 is neat, but who knows if it might work to hold new players interest. Some of those core abilities are old and not very exciting at all as well imo.
    It will hold their interest before getting those core abilities by 40 & 50. Leveling will be a lot more fun with core abilities. You will feel like your class at level 10 instead of (like I said) 40 & 50. I really don't think WoW has a problem holding the interest of new players, I think it's to hold the interest of returning players who want to level new characters. Leveling is half the game and the max level is the other half.

    Maybe this just isn't the game for me anymore, as I am hoping for things that probably will never happen.
    Most of cata has been revealed, what could you possibly still be hoping for that they haven't yet confirmed or denied? Don't be unrealistic.

    /Sarcasm - Oh, this is woderfull news! Hunter (BM) Animal Handler down to 15%.. /endsarcasm

    So lets see what that did, keeping in mind that AP is no longer found on gear/gems/enchants... Hunter has 2000 Agi (reasonable number at lvl 80) Hits the BM tab to get his 15% increase AP... Oh great, that meens they have 2000 Agi and 4600 AP. But wait, that hunter wants to go Survival instead. Here comes the 15% Agi to put that same hunter at 2300 Agi and oh look, 4600 AP. Hmm, with more attacks being based off AP, looks like BM hunters available shots do the EXACT same as Survival BUT do not benifit from the added crit from agility.

    Right off the bat, Survival is more powerfull then BM.

    I keep reading that "numbers are easy to tweek" and yes, they are, but really, i'm no math major and can see by a single click of a mouse button, one spec has a massive benifit over the other.

    * Defensive Stance now increases threat generated by 100%, up from 45%.

    what?
  1. sanddog's Avatar
    Typically they mean they have doubled the threat not made it 100% chance. One can hope though.

    Is the glyph of stoneclaw still usable? Have any shaman tried using it with the new stoneclaw totem? Does it absorb 4 x 4143 = 16572? (wasn't the old 4 x 1085 and not 4 x 664 btw?)
