Tier 12 Armor Sets Preview - Shaman
It's time for the first real preview of Tier 12 armor sets! As I said in yesterday's news post a lot of Tier 12 sets got a lot of bad feedback from the community based on poor/rushed previews, I'm not saying that they all look awesome but the Tier 12 Shaman definitely got some bad press because people couldn't render his effect properly. See for yourself.
You can expect more previews tomorrow, and yes, I lied about the Warlock video being today, I had a slight issue with the female models and they just didn't look right. This is already fixed but I didn't want to delay the Shaman preview further.
In any case, I suggest that you wait for the "good" previews before you decide if a set is good or bad and complain about it everywhere, for the sake of my moderators.
PS: The armor set available to player is the fire one, the green one is most likely a recolor and will only be used for non-set or NPCs.
Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest Hotfixed Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest has been hotfixed on test realms and had its stats considerably increased. Additionally, the proc datamined a few days ago is now confirmed as well!
The critical strike rating has been changed to haste rating and all the stats have been increased, also, Blizzard took the opportunity to shatter people's hope with this hotfix and properly set the staff as "Bind on Pickup".
I almost did it. But then I realized that some people will interpret it as the real set, etc ...
That's why I didn't post rushed/shitty previews in the first place, I could rush them and "skip" some of the effects but in the end my news posts have too much impact on player feedback and I just can't do whatever I want just to call "OMG OMG OMG FIRSSSSSSSTZ!"
At first I thought, "Woop, big deal on that staff. More Int: check. Crit replaced with Haste: check. More Spell Power: check. A new(ly fixed) proc: check. Kind of a let down, imo." But then I noticed the most important buff of all:
Old weapon speed = 2.40. New weapon speed = 3.30!
Now it truly has the right to be called a legendary weapon!
