While I don't like being nerfed in any way shape or form, some napkin maths indicates that this is only approximately a 5-6% nerf in theory, and overall the DMF trinket is still better than any other available (at least for Moonkin, Yu'lon)
It's not nice to get nerfed, but it doesn't change the fact that they are still top of the pack.
I really don't believe all the fuss people are having around the dailies... Honestly. People complained that gear was too easy to farm at 85, now they're complaining it's too difficult... there's no pleasing.
I'm going to sound like a typical vanilla player here now, but I preferred the grind (even on 1 character, let alone multiple characters) back at the beginning. Where the term 'Epic' actually had some meaning and sense of accomplishment. Hell, even having an 'Epic' mount was something I held high as an accomplishment. I was by no means a hardcore raider having only done 4 in AQ40 and full BWL/MC/ZG etc, but I never, not once, felt the need to moan about not having access to the full Naxx40 because, to be frank, it was above my level of gear at the time.
To all of those who use the old 'I don't have time to grind it all out or farm the gear' chestnut.... This game is, and pretty much always has been a grind. It's why it's so been so successful. People wouldn't keep playing the game if they could log on for a couple of hours every other day and be fully equipped in what they desire, it would get very boring, very fast.
There is nothing fun or rewarding grinding to exalted for MULTIPLE reputations on one character and then being pigeon-holed into doing it again on an alt JUST to buy VP gear. VP gear should be unlocked for all of your characters once you get exalted with everyone on one character. I don't care about feeling epic. I care about maximizing my accomplishments. I have already gotten to exalted on this toon, so why do I have to do it again? I've proven I can grind and do what's necessary on a character, and I don't think I should have to prove myself again.
While on the flip side all this vp and jp is pointless for raiders regardless since its lower ilv then anything in a heroic and the next raid level, so all this really hurts are casuals.
DMF trinkets are really, really powerful and although Im sad to see it coming I can kind of understand why.
First thing I thought when I saw the item level upgrades was like that my prio for upgrades to benefit me the most where :
- weapon upgrade
- DMF trinket
With the buff you can give them they will probably be on the same level they are now again.
But the game is "design by democracy". Once subs start dropping, people get whatever they want (see: casualization in Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm).
I'm saving these blue posts so I can post them on the forum whenever they reintroduce rep tabards and/or rep-granting items bought with JP/VP, and they will once a couple million people cancel their subscriptions.
Just for people wondering about the monk stance it's just an error. Everything is the same except there's an extra 50% haste from items tacked on which is very nice.
Um..."Test of Valor" makes no sense. Why does it award 6K VP when the full cap is 3K? Did they increase the cap or something?
Let's hope they alter the annoying spell effect when a paladin uses his AoE healing abilities with this trinket and blanket half of your screen so you can't see shit on the floor. Similar to the Monk's Spinning Crane Kick AoE.
I really don't understand the relic nerfs (specially tank relic, which is not that good and get the biggest nerf)
Blizzard rules i guess ...
Is he serious? I do Klaxxi, Golden Lotus AND CloudSerpents and Tillers in little more over one hour.MoP dailys on the other hand are much, much more difficult, tedious and frustrating. Hence, for most of us casual players, they are too time consuming. Golden Lotus? Takes me an hour to do them. Klaxxi? Another hour.
