playing the wrong game >_> Who's excited to faceroll the new wing?Originally Posted by Feanorgandalf
I'm withholding judgement until the rest of the instance is available. Letting pugs kill arthas is different than letting pugs get past the second - second! boss. Let them kill her, get the loot pinata from chess event, err, I mean gunship, and then die screaming on saurfang.Originally Posted by Marvy
The Naxx statement isn't really that far off - pugs aren't clearing Ulduar, and most fail on twins or anub in TotC (though I barely count that as a 25man raid, I mean really).
I welcome the Occ changes too - people will say this is due to whining but I'd bet its because Blizz has numbers showing how many people /leaveparty at the start. This is how Blizz fixes these kind of behavior problems.
Normal mode?Originally Posted by Ryuk
Yes. Absolutely yes.
If you want to be an elitist, you've got your hard modes to lord over other people with.
You mean it's version of Shadowstep? 7000 shadow damage + possible curse increase, and the subsequent melee attacks unless the tank turns around. Not really a bug since that's the point.Originally Posted by balatro
Yes I know the rogues have a version of SS which is fine of course but there was also a known bug that caused mobs of any type, regardless of abilities to sometimes step behind the tank for no reason and then attack. GC has confirmed this bug (I haven't read if it was fixed yet) and even joked that it was merely improved AI.Originally Posted by Relion
Mistake on my end to refer to the bug and use rogues as an example who do have a Shadowstep ability.

The IN GAME TEXT said 'in 28 days the next gate will open'. Guess what... that was 4 weeks ago. 4 weeks x 7 days = omg28days!
That's usually when the tank never stands still and just tries to get them infront of him... as a tank, healer and dps I've experienced and seen it first and second hand, quite annoying but it's doable to work around.Originally Posted by balatro
are the new season armor model out already?
WoW free since 8/10/09
well i got stuck homesick with nothing to do pretty much and... for the sixth time, i started playing again.
The concept of HoR would have been fine as it was before the random system went into play. Moderate CC turned heroic into a challenge but doable for most groups. Good CC turned it into a snooze. I've done HoR with 3 hunters in a guild run and it was quite possibly the most boring way to do it. We were laughing at how much an effect 3 traps had at the difficulty of the instance and the fact that the traps caused hunters to proc LnL which melted the 1 - 2 free mobs in seconds.Originally Posted by balatro
Why is HoR bad in randoms? Well beyond people failing to CC when they can you also ended up in groups without any CC at all. Had a group with me (DK Tank), shaman, rogue, warrior, and a second DK. It was unplesant when our best CC was chains of ice. I'm not saying that HoR is undoable without CC but the difficulty goes far above what most random groups can handle.
When I do HHoR with guildmates I specifically seek out a hunter, priest, or paladin for the group.
i find it sad that they are nerfing lady deathwhisper.
my mediocre raiding guild got her down after 3h of work on patchday on 25.
tanking the adds was challenging and one could see the difference in tanking skills the single tanks had but this made the encounter fun.
i think it had about the right difficulty.
but even if they nerf it.
there are 3 more quarters to come.
i am looking forward seeing that difficulty. and after that Hardmodes.
we'll see about that.
19 january is 14 days / 2 week from 5 january on which the second wing is unlocked, so i guess the third wing will come on 19 january aswell
nerfs weren't needed but should help a little with the ocassional wipe (note i'm not a hardcore elitist realmfirst all hardmode clearing guy)
Time will tell if they're actually difficult this time around. (I'm thinking no.)Originally Posted by Arandmoor
Pointless Lady Deathwisper nerfs are pointless.
The encounter was fine, it required moderate organization and dps / tanks to be somewhat awake. Why are they nerfing encounters when there aren’t hard modes available? Everyone is 4/4 ICC now it's not like she is holding back a large number of raiders.
Oh well I guess we can expect DBS nerfs next week. And to think I was hoping ICC wouldn't be ToC V2.0.

In just a few weeks time, you'll be getting your hard-earned title: Gladiator or even Relentless Gladiator!

Whether you've ran with surv/marks hunter or arms warrior + healer or some other comp, it is not the comp nor spec that got you to your stellar ratings, but pure skill.
(Who cares about jukes when you have blanket silenceee-hees!)
Other people of lesser specs run with 1000+ resi but you've proven that even in a world of burst it's possible to occasionally neglect resilience and just instagib people.
(Wear that arp gemmed pve gear like you meeee-heean it!)
So crack open a nice cold can of WotLK and keep killing people in stuns/silences better than a rogue, you've earned it!

I already addressed that I know rogues have a SS ability in HoR. I also commented that it was a mistake on my part to use them as the example to the bug I was referring to.Originally Posted by Doylez
The bug I'm talking about is mentioned here http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/th...3429&sid=1#133
So you and your group is going in there with all ilvl 219/232 gear? (mostly ilvl 219) and clearing it?Originally Posted by Thomp Gun
I agree I love the place, but we our gear it quite easily, and its still requires at least a little bit of paying attention.
To do the place with a gear appropriate tank/heals and dps would be considerable difficult, especially getting 2 of the mentioned classes in the 5 packs. That being said I do hope that they don't nerf it to hard.
