    The new changes to the legendary meta-gems are pretty nice. (oh...)
    After seeing that healers will get a meta gem with 324int instead of crit as us DPS. (Spirit?)
    Hope the ICD on that 30% haste is like 60-70 sec, else I would really consider to use the int one. Can we use 2 META gems or is this the one to use. Either way healers will lose '+432 Spirit and 3% Increased Critical Effect' and gain int + the proc, w/e the ICD is on that. Dps will also lose int. (INT>ALL) All depending on the ICD, is it worth it or not, it remains to see~
  1. Jacob6875's Avatar
    I'm not even sure if these "legendary" meta gems will even but much of an upgrade (if any) from current meta gems. Replacing int with crit (best to worst state for ele shamans) and 3% critical effect for a random haste buff. If the haste buff has a long internal cd I only see it being a small upgrade or downgrade over current gems which is disappointing.

    By far the most ridiculous, ugly gear set to date for rogues.
  1. kezzerdrix's Avatar
    I don't understand the nerf to glyph of mind spike. Was this too much of a bonus in pvp? I found it extremely useful in pve to be able to do some moving if i got the instant spikes followed up by an instant MB, but i dont think this was a super huge gamebreaker.

    Shouldn't the budget on the legendary meta gems weight double on secondary stats (CRIT) compared to primary (INT) ? like on gems.

    Limited in gear aesthetics? Try being a Death Knight, where every set is skull related.

    Limited in spec differentiation? I'm beginning to think you don't play the class or at least don't know it.

    If you have Atlasloot you'll see the gear is already updated. Love is in the Air necks are ilevel 480/Level 90.
    Past tier may have been cool, but I was talking more along the lines of the lacking in daggers and also the coming transmog changes not including daggers. (No dagger to axe but sword to axe).

    Animations =/= to spell effects. So your insinuation of me wanting something "flashy" is overly assumptive, lackluster and completely unrelated to my point that certain spells share/lack an animation. Eviscerate and Feint anyone? Also, this has been stated by GC and something they are looking at for class appeal considering the class was underplayed even when OP at the end of Cata.

    As for spec differentiation, Assasination and Combat are brutally similar and a Rogue's signature resource (combo points) was introduced to several new classes arguably implemented better. (No redirect needed for Monks and Paladins)

    I am beginning to believe you haven't played any OTHER class.

    I believe the former will be the case, which wouldn't surprise me; I'd wondered why it was that my LW alt didn't have a daily CD like the other professions. Better stock up now on Magnificent Hides if you don't already have some!

    Judging by the tooltips, it looks to be a "catching up" path for blacksmithing (like what we have now for cooking).

    I took that to mean the claws aren't going to crush the life out of your ally by picking him/her up.

    I do wish they'd fix that bug though. I've lost so much time to it and even died a few times. In general, I think CRZ is a good thing, but the bugs are really, really bad and should have been worked out before they pushed it live.

    Disgrace to see them nerfing LFR by 5% for wipes! How about they actually let players play their specs instead of forcing them into playing in totally and utterly crappy gear in offspec to get gear. This nerf on it own should tell EVERYONE to get out of this game right away. Total disgrace.

    So much for "There is too much CC". Now DK's have a no-cost, insta-cast stun every 30 secs just like paladins.
    I seriously consider having a break from WoW at least until the next expansion.
  1. azurrei's Avatar
    I have a feeling those Meta gems are going to be IN ADDITION to the normal meta's. Makes sense as dps use primary stat/ crit dmg, so they are giving us a secondary stat (crit to go with the crit dmg...) + flavor proc. Healers use the sprit meta so they are giving them a primary stat meta. Tanks...I guess tanks get some threat from the crit meta...
