    I like the fact that shamans get new spells every time;
    that they will be able to use the new race;
    that they get dmg buffs every time there's a beta patch

    and my balance druid got:
    white stag form, orca form;
    even less damage with astral storm, hurricane, wild mushrooms;
    and 4 useless talents. so many exciting changes...

    Can you give my raid leader a reson to bring a balance druid please?
    Aoe damage nerfed to the ground, raid utility can be given by resto and guardian with symbiosis
    Unless shamans we don't bring 8% crit/haste/mastery every 12 sec, 5 mastery aura, burst totems.

    Oh well at leaste there are many glyph changes for us.....oh wait!

    Paladin set looks awesome, less "epic" (not talking about being good looking, but the feeling of heroism) than tier 13. Warlock set looks ugly to me.

    So, that new "Black Market AH" thing... We have 3 seperate AH systems already, including a way to trade between factions. So what could the Black Market one add to the game? I'm honestly getting the feeling that its gonna be real money, but thats just my thoughts.
  1. Zavala_451's Avatar
    Paladin set looks terrible imo. No love (outside that pvp set late in cata) for us at all in the art department since tier 6 imoIt's like they are slacking on Paladin, but making warlocks amazing. Biggest hit and miss art team when it comes to tier. Never understand them

    Battlegroup is more likely, its almost impossible to start any type of real money economy in such an established game as WoW.
    Even if they would limit it to lets say, MoP only items it would still cause major tremors in the current WoW economy since it would be hard to dial down a gold-money ratio.
    I doubt they will ever implement something that massive into a 7year old game really.

    There's not enough unbound items in the game to allow for this kind of model. Diablo's items don't bind to the user, afaik, but anything worthwhile in WoW is BoP, except a few random drops and crafting items, which usually are offered in such immense numbers they'd only be selling for a few cents anyway.

    Bwahaha Warlock... The poor boss will die of laughter before we have a chance to even pull him if we wear sets like these.
