    My Idea for a Pet :3

    My Idea would be kind of like a Ditto type of Pet, it would be off of a rare spawn named 'Metamorphic Slime' In one of the under caves on the boarder of Vally of the Four Winds and Kashar Wilds , neer the Lizard people.

    It would have the skin of one of those " troll slimes " kinda like the one that drops off of an AQ boss, but it would have the Skull of a reptile in the top of it instead of a troll skull and would change colors slowly, like the new Camiliien flying mount when idle.

    It's name would be
    Metamorphic Slime-ling - lvl 1 , Undead = Passive : Undead pets return to life immortal for one round when killed. 150HP , 15Atak , 10Speed

    It's abilities would be Elemental , Undead . and would be prone to high dmg from Critters abilities . 50% and low dmg from Dragonkin abilities . 33%

    ------------------------------------
    First Tie r: at lvl 1

    Elemental, Learn-able at lvl 1 , 90% Hit Chance:
    Slime Spew - Slimes the Enemy pet with a toxic sludge causing 25dmg and ticking for 5 Elemental dmg over 3 rounds. High dmg to Humanoid , Low dmg to Aquatic

    Undead, Learn-able at lvl 10,90% Hit Chance:
    Hunger - The Slime - ling pulls the Enemy pet into it's body Ingesting it , causing 30dmg for 2 rounds. Applying the 'Ingesting' effect. High dmg to Mechanical , Low dmg to Critter

    ------------------------------------
    Second Tier : at lvl 2

    Undead, Learn-able at lvl 2 , 100% Hit Chance:
    Coagulate - Coagulates the Slime-ling into a hardened state lowering dmg taken by 50% for 3 rounds. 4 round CD.

    Undead , Learn-able at lvl 15 , 85 % Hit Chance :
    Ingesting Slime - Coats the Enemy pet in Ingesting Slime slowing eating it alive Restoring 20 Health to the Slime-ling and eating 20 health from the enemy pet for 4 rounds. Does Double healing if the Enemy pet is 'Ingesting'. 2 round CD, High dmg to Humanoid, Low dmg to Aquatic

    ------------------------------------
    Therd Teir : at lvl 4

    Elemental , Learn-able at lvl 4, 100% Hit Chance:
    Forced Evolution - The Slime-ling Force Evolves it self into a higher organism over 2 rounds. Taking the first to Stimulate growth then on the 2nd Evolving adding 65dmg to each attack for 2 rounds. 4 round CD , High dmg to Mechanical, Low dmg to Critter


    Magic, Learn-able at lvl 20 , 100% Hit chance:
    Metamorphose - Take on the Enemy pet's look and abilities for 4 rounds increasing dmg dealt by 20% of the Slime-ling's health and adding awareness to there opponent's attacks for 2 rounds. after Morph wears off the extra awareness causes a 10% increased Dodge chance to the attacks used while in Metamorphose. 4 round CD, High dmg to Flying, Low dmg to Mechanical

    Ok, Points taken on some things and I did say that maybe you need a new price point rather than replacing the one you have BUT I'm a member of a hardware forum and about half of the people coming to us for advice ARE looking for either 120hz screens or multi-monitor set-ups.. really with the price and performance of hardware these days there is little reason not to when a 2k computer (that a few years ago would only run 1 screen) can now run 3, High res or 120fps..

    And sorry but you need to look in better places if you think you can only get 770's at that price.

    pcpartpicker.com/parts/video-card/#c=137&sort=a5

    Also on the SSD's, whats the point in going for a 120GB drive when you want all your games / apps to load fast.. have you seen the size of just wow these days..
    I it's just the name and inconsistency in your suggestions that piss me off with these, Unicorn does not describe what your putting under the hardware.

    And if your trying to stick to a budget then why are you spec'ing out a 4770k which most people will never use the potential of either in multi-core computing or in overclocking?
    Why are you specing a PSU that is WAY beyond whats needed for the build?

    Lower budget, better build:
    pcpartpicker.com/p/12Liz
    Slap in cooler of choice, anything between $30 and 100, still under your budget but will play games better..
    Ohh and reasoning on the Ivy chip is $30 difference for marginal performance and increased power.. and like you said, anyone needing these suggestions will need an easier time of it and Ivy is MUCH easier to overclock.. and if they aren't overclocking then your doing them a dis-service by suggesting a k series chip and large cooler in the first place


    True unicorn would be:
    pcpartpicker.com/p/12LdP
    Way beyond what people need but hey, it's a unicorn..

    Sensible 2k build for multi-screen / high res / 120hz monitors..:
    pcpartpicker.com/p/12Lpj
    Swap the 2x770's for a single 780 if you rather stay to 1 card.. but it's much better bang for buck with the 770's.

    You don't have to break any banks to go for big power, you also don't have to spend as much as your suggesting for better in game performance.
    Feel free to drop in AMD cards wherever suits though they suck big donkey N*** for wow.. Also feel free to drop in Asus, gigabyte Asrock whatever boards / cards is each persons preference.. I Like MSI at the mo, great bang for buck and very good customer support.

    To anyone else that was saying anything about me over spec'ing.. My grievance was calling it a unicorn.. That and mixing a 670 in when a 770 is a far better investment and a 750W gold rated PSU where it wasn't needed etc etc.

    I wasn't attacking you, I was trying to point out some flaws in your builds(granted while having a rant but the rant was stated).. but here you go.. feel free to copy.

    What's the objection with returning AV back to where it was a few years ago where epic battles could have lasted hours?
    The problem is some players don't want a very long BG. We've discussed making long BGs their own thing....

    Sweet, my 2 stopped BGs can be something that isnt 40man BGs.

    We only list Amazon prices. Of course people going to a hardware forum want high end stuff, but we aren't really a hardware forum. Most people requesting build help here are spending $1k or less.

    Well thats just plain silly. Any specific reason?

    Even if you used something like pcpartpicker, like I have it will list amazon and a few others, not a comprehensive list at all but only amazon?

    Anyway, I was ranting a bit (and didn't mean to cause offence, if any was taken) but there are a few inconsistencies in your builds (as stated, not to mention a $50 mouse and IPS monitor(albeit a good price for one) in your puppy peripherals section)

    P.S, the review linked with the 335 SSD is actually the 330.. they don't use a sandforce controller in them anymore. (you may want to double check some of the links too, Someone said earlier that one of the z87 boards was linking to a z77..)

    Not everyone in the world can use Newegg, but almost everyone has a local version of Amazon.

    In that case pcpartpicker really is a better option as it covers mostly the same areas as Amazon and all you have to do is select your country in the top right corner.

    Granted it doesn't cover Brazil or china but it does probably 90% of amazon zones and most of your readership.

    In the very least tell people to shop around as if they don't know then they will probably expect you to tell them the best place to get parts.

    As said above, multi monitor setups (aka having games through 3+ screens) is a niche, I tried it, it was fun experience but I removed the setup like 3 months in, cause it isn't offering really anything special to me personally past the "wow" factor when you first hook it up. Same goes for SLI/Crossfire setups with enthusiast performance cards. There is very few people who are willing to dish 2x or 3x $600 ($1200 or $1800) for graphics cards alone.

    I build two machines somewhere mid last year which will serve me well up until 2015, when I will most likely upgrade again, those are
    i5 3570k, 8GB DDR3, AMD R7950 and 120GB SSD - All games this far run super fine without any need for more power.

    I paid about 1200EUR per machine (including case, cooling and PSU), yes it's more expensive in Europe, but that's two machines for 2400EUR, where's if I would go balls to the walls with Titan or SLI it would be pretty much the price for one machine.

    Also on that 120GB SSDs, you can get additional mechanical drivers or even SSDs in the future, also external driver and NAS is something people buy in masses now, so a 120GB SSD for the OS and few games should be enough for everyone.

    Most likely wouldn't change their minds, but it would go a long way towards at least giving players a heads-up as well as a chance to respond before the fact (instead of after it). I can understand why they didn't give advance warning for the big mining/herb node nerf of patch 5.1, but what's their excuse for not mentioning anything regarding the DMF change (or "no loot for scenarios", for that matter).

    We have different views but, regardless of that, I believe Blizzard has done a lousy job this patch in communicating not-so-insignificant changes no matter which way you spin the wheel.
