Spell Changes
Spell changes are here and as usual keep in mind that:

  • This is a beta, everything can change.
  • Those changes are not official, they're the result of datamining.
  • It's the beginning of the beta and shit is changing so fast that it's a miracle that everything doesn't explode in our face. A few things look weird, we'll try to figure them out over the next few hours to make sure we didn't do anything stupid!

    maybe they'll add a panda mount - they have enough time to add these. (after all they didn't even give us our charger mount in the mail, and no other faction mount in game unless we get to exalted)

    maybe they'll fix panda's so we can visit darn without a flying mount or mage (the usual portal at the base doesn't work for pandas)

    the little things (like quest givers appearing for pandas in westfall or darkshore) the little things.

    So, if things stick this way, each JC mount will cost 100 000g, and the "ultimate" mount 400 000; furthermore, if you want the 4 previous ones PLUS the "ultimate" one, it'll cost you 800 000 gold. Well That's a fucking huge gold sink ^^

    JC is not as profitable as you think. Ever since guild perks people get their guidies to cut gems; i rarely see people advertise their professions in cata anymore. Its much more profitable to sell raw minerals then prospecting them for cheap gems. Mounts are profitable in any profession really. Besides this expansion will bring many awesome mounts - the jc mount isn't on the top of my life tbh. I will eventually make one for sure but i doubt you will ever see me riding it...out of all the mounts ingame currently bears are my fave.

    yay even more demonology nerfs >.<

    Here come the warlock nerfs. But really, 250% armor boost? For freakin CLOTH?! that sucks big time
  1. Elvinator's Avatar
    I'm really liking these Rogue changes. We're now capable of keeping up a 5CP - Finisher rotation for melee (same), ranged (Shuriken Toss - Deadly Throw), and now AoE (Fan of Knives - Crimson Tempest). This combined with a new DPS cooldown and that awesome pickpocket glyph are really making me look forward to this xpac.

    Sighhhhh. So much for Warlock tanking. Thought it was the best idea in this expansion, and they kill it.

    [Something Expensive] had a sell price of 25K. Are they expected to be a vendor only mat like those required for [Vial of the Sands] or obtainable elsewhere in the game so that gold bots aren't the only ones who can afford these mounts?

    Now that levitate speed up was changed to a glyph, priests now seem to have a new talent, Feathers From Heaven:

    Place Heavenly Feathers at the target location. Each Heavenly Feather causes a single nearby friendly target to gain 60% movement speed for 4 sec. Only 3 Feathers can be placed at one time. Accumulates an additional charge once every 10 sec.

    Ha ha ha ha.

    I'm sorry, but if I'm going to fork out 500,000g for a mount it had better look better than what the Jeweled Onyx Panther looks right now. At LEAST give it some unique animations. Or some more particle effects. Something to justify that massive pricetag.

    Or hell, make a JC-only mount my Jewelcrafter can afford to enjoy at least.

    It's not 500k thats the sell BACK price which is usually 2/3 of the vendor cost.

    Yup you should know this by now, Blizzard always kill the best things and warlocks are the first target always !
    Don't expect to see more warlocks past the first week where ppl loose interest in the novelty pets.
    A month past the expansion, locks will be just as rare a sight as they are now in the live game.

    Flying Panther? Come on... There are so many better things to give wings and call a new flying mount.

    Eg. Shark. Sharks are badass. Give them wings, two seats, and maybe laser eye beams. NOW thats a mount. Not a damn kitten with wing.

    Some cool monk buffs. The addition of a CD for Breath of Fire makes me sad though. :P

    Truth! Very server dependent. I have a heck of a time making any money on my server due to constant undercutting.

    I just wanted the JC mount to be JC-only so that it's not expensive and not everyone in the horde can ride it.
