    Nowt wrong wi' a bit of northern English slang.It's refreshing to see people not using perfect Queen's English.So when you crawl back under your rock,take your narrow-mindedness back with you.

    OT: Hate the dance,for me it seems too sexual for this game,although im sure the ERP'ers are going to love it.
    Certainly won't be bothering rolling a worgen,male or female.

    vampiric embrace nerf? wth?
    if u look at healing done on the stat screen after finished bg there r all locks on top of the screen
    locks r doing more heal then the healers
    the only way u will see shadow priests there is because they used divine hymn or using a lot of prayer of manding
    locks dont have to do nothing (ezept for harvest) to get their heal
    i think u should nerf locks instead, not priests
    and btw, that demo stun from hand of guldan is crazy, nerf needed

    You see, there's something wrong here in your statement. The forum with everyone typing completely flawless, does not exist yet. Besides, not everyone thinks it's "cool" to make typo's on purpose.
    Now if you'll excuse me, heading off to my rock again, at least then I won't have to read all kinds of random slang crap.

    A lot of the warlock's healing in BGs is directed at his pet and not him, Felguard stun/hand of guldan doesn't need to be changes. Once we stop blowing each other up and pvp becomes slower paced it wont be anything special.

    How could that be true when October is all about Breasts in the US?

    (Breast cancer awareness month, for those who didn't know.)

    Hmm, now I have to redo my resto tree.

    Spriest nerfs... cuz I just won't be bothered to cast VE.

    Holy Pally massive buffs, right, ok.

    Lady Gaga... I do enjoy that an alliance race got a dude looking like a chick as a dance, it makes up for that stupid Napolean Dynamite shit.

    And that brings my rant to an end.
    You are thinking of Kesha, not Lady Gaga.

    ^ She's got a damn good body. (She's the one on the right)

    I really hate when people think she's some sort of "Rupaul" singer. She's not. She's a woman, and has a beautiful voice. (Listen to her sing live)

    Okay. I noticed they did not report a change made to the Resto Druid talent "Swift Rejuvenation". It is now a 1 point talent for the same amount of reduction it had at 2 points.

    Surprised that they haven't used the Thriller dance on any of the Worgen.

    blizz.. i am disappoint.

    I was hoping beyond hope it would be Bad Romance, but Poker Face is nearly just as good, and it's by Lady Gaga.

    I can die happy now.

    Mortal Strike now reduces healing by 10%, down from 25%. what's the point of healing reduction spells when the amount of heal reduced is only 10%? I mean, that doesn't change anything at all Oo Except long term arena matches that last more than 1 hour where the higher mana necessity based on the lesser healing received makes a difference. but come on ... than buff it's dmg and remove healing debuff completely.

    Nothing to appreciate here except than contributing a large bunch of retards to the public. "Pop culture" actually rather refers to "I'm hearing Lady Gaga, see, I'm a drunk retard that can't behave".
    She can't sing, her lyrics are ridiculous and she's making music to get money, that's pitiful.

    There really is no pleasing the MMO community. Oh well. I thought it was funny. I mean, it's a bad dance, but that's what makes it good! Thank you Blizzard, Lady Gaga was a good choice. I for one, will have a chuckle out of it every know and then when I see it. Cheers!
