    Due to the many shaman elemental buffs that have happened though out this expansion, I think there is a scaling problem that Blizzard is addressing right now by simply upping the damage as we go though the content. It is also possible that it is like this now, and it is yet another tooltip update.on the negative side, this just makes it even harder for restro to dps. Many other classes get a 10% bonus to their spec's spells, making the difference between damage while inside and outside of the spec not as large.

    WTF!!!!

    I actually spent the time and effort and got this achievement. No reward. No tabard. No title. And now they even ruin the achievement. What a joke!
    An easy grind achievement with no reward got nerfed... I think you'll survive, little buddy.

    Dont be selfish, why do you care about what others have so much. They already set it to 25, i guess your not going to get your way.

    They're good for e-peen healing in PvP though. The new Mysterious Potion buff would equal some sick self-healing if you're a Blood DK:

    50000 = Maximum amount of Base Healing
    *1.4 = 70000, with Glyphed Vampiric Blood active
    *1.4 = 98000, with an Alchemist Stone equipped
    *1.5 = 147000, assuming Crit heals with Potions have a 1.5 multiplier
    OR *2.0 = 196000, assuming a Crit 2.0 multiplier

    You probably won't be seeing those numbers unless all the stars align perfectly though.

    sorry but that change to Tol Barad Veteran pisses me off.
    they should leave it at 100 just like wintergrasp and all the other battlegrounds.

    i'm currently at 86 wins

    Because in WotLK it was easier to get 100 wins in WG, because more people played with it and it was more fun.
    Most of the people doesn't like TB, but love(d) WG. Usually on my realm there's about 20 vs 20 in TB in the afternoon, in WG it was about 100 vs. 100 and everyone had awful lag...but WG was fun anyway.(later it wasn't possible so many people join the battle if I'm right)

    he asked why they dont change Wintergrasp's achievement NOW. And fyi its not so much fun now a deserted and really should be nerfed for new players/chars.

    Pointless to see the change of Tol Barad Veteran. If it does, Blizzard should also change Wintergrasp Veteran.
  1. Gibbz's Avatar
    The other difference is WG Vet didn't reset on server/faction change, TB does.

    I would like to see that happen to WG to...

    just made some mysterious potions after this ^.^

    I'm fine with the TB nerf. I still won't get the achievement on my main. I've played TB enough. The only reason I'll go into TB is to get BH opened open. TB isn't fun like WG was. Which BTW WG does not need to be nerfed unless you also go back and nerf Halaa. I'm still missing one mount for Halaa.

    Hmm, I just started working on the TB Veteran and am at 33 atm... Meh, whatever
    I'll start with Wintergrasp instead

    Well if that was true, wouldn't it be better to fix it another way? I mean a quarter of a lifetime is still hell of a time to spend on an achiev... Exaggeration aside, wouldn't it be better to come back to the WG model and just improve upon it instead of nerfing the achievement?
