    Re: Cataclysm Stat & System Changes

    Looks like a lot of work for the devs modifying all existing gear in the game and for what? I can understand some changes might have to be done for a new xpac but I'd rather see they used their time making content then changing stuff like this.
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    I agree with getting rid of Armor Pen and MP5, but fusing Spell power and Intellect to me still doesn't make sense. *Sigh* I'm going to miss old WoW when Cataclysm comes out. I felt special knowing what stats to stack

    Question is, which class will be overpowered as hell due to stat changes, until it gets balanced out by levelling to 85 and we get gear which is itemized with the stat changes in mind.

    It's like changing the value of X in a formula, it's not like they're going to have to sit down and change every item manually.

    I wonder if Shadow Priests are going to fall in to the "DPS Caster" grouping or the "Balance Druid/Elemental Shaman" grouping since, traditionally, spirit has been quasi-important to them?

    Are you implying anything in particular?

    My guess is no and will share gear with Mages & Warlocks.

    Subtlety Rogues (HaT) that stack haste. I called it first.

    The tanking changes seem interesting but it also seems there is going to be a lot more fighting over gear than there is now. I also want to know what new spells they are giving to replace the ranks of other spells, even though that seems to be a cop-out so when people forget to go train (seems obvious to me you would train every two levels or so) don't have to worry.

    Here's a thought. For locks the LTap Glyph is based on 30% of your spirit. Will they rework the glyph or drop it entirely. It is a very powerful glyph hate to see it go.

    Did you consider there was a reason Blizzard made two categories in the post and called them "dps caster" and "Balance druid/elemental shaman"? If you are a shadowpriest, you are not a balance druid. If you are a shadowpriest, you are not an elemental shaman. Conclusion: You are in the DPS CASTER group.

    On the changes coming, loving every bit of it!

    Re: Cataclysm Stat & System Changes

    Scaling spells from the start
    No more weapon skill ups
    Stats/items that are useful for everybody from 1-85

    New quests/areas from 1-60 supposedly, im going to have a hard time not deleting my chars and starting all over again.

    There is a certain amount of fear about them not getting everything right, but I think they can pull it off, this has the best chance of recapturing that
    "exciting new world" feel that ive lost after 5 years than I originally thought.

    No offense, but I don't really appreciate being called a moron for an honest question. The reason why I asked in the first place is because pallies don't really use MP5 now (or at least in a limited amount). Maybe I've been informed wrong (or read the talents wrong) but most of the pally's regen is from crits.

    Re: Cataclysm Stat & System Changes

    You were called that because your question was answered in the article. Holy pallies will use spirit and it will be more attractive to them. Read then post.

    Re: Cataclysm Stat & System Changes

    Changing armor pen to haste or crit?

    I hope they add the talent changes at the same time they do the stat changes, or arms is going to be fucked senseless.

    Re: Cataclysm Stat & System Changes

    The best news have to be that there will no longer be any weapon skill!

    I am a little worried about it beeing harder to cap for example hit etc, because I do not want to see it become so that you have to be high end raider to get maxed out.

    Otherwise, very very pleasantly surprised about these changes. Cant wait.

    Well don't forget that with Mastery you'll be getting Armor Pen for just speccing as arms.

    L2 read. they said all healers will want spirit. they have this really well thought out, they are doing an amazing job polishing this game off. just wait and play the game with these changes before bitching. yeah numbers and things will be different, but its still gonna be WoW, and have the content you like to play. so lets hold back our bitching and play the changes before we nerd rage/QQing kkthx peace out

    I'm wondering the same thing because if spirit gives mp5/hit will human ret paladins benefit from their racial bonus and have it converted to hit rating?
