    Wondering about Mists of Pandaria gear scaling

    Obviously nothing has been announced regarding the next x-pack, but judging from the information we have about gear scaling from our previous ones, what are some of your estimates? I have been playing from week one and managed to always have end content and PvP gear so with that in mind I would say that it would be in the 300k-350k range mid way through MoP.

    It's really hard to say. Blizzard might choose to jump values up again, or they might barely increase them. I doubt anyone who was playing WotLK in say, patch 3.3 thought that a tank would go from 15-30k health then to more like 120-200k health in the next expansion.

    Don't even start...

    OT: I think it wouldn't be too far fetched to be able to solo the majority of Wrath content with ease as well as some of the normal dungeons in Cata.

    If they keep scaling like this , we will have people getting 500k in the beginning (might be just tank in the very beginning). I wouldn´t be surprised if we will be having the 1st health Millionare in next Xpack.

    I really hope the scaling is the about the same as it was from bc - wrath

    As long as everything is relative, I don't think it matters. My 200k health doesn't afford me a ton more survivability than my 40k health back in Wrath did.

    Clearly, he's talking about crits. 300k-350k crits. Or maybe average ilvl. Or stat amounts. 300k strength!!

    Agreed. Can we have a MoP thread that doesn't turn into a flame war?

    Anyway.


    I believe we will end Cata over 200k health. Probably hit 90 and be over 300k. From there expect a 60-75k rise each tier. So that's three tiers.... plus the 300k...

    So we'll end at around 500k health.

    Hell, should be able to solo Cata heroics and some raids on 10 man, mechanic-dependent of course. Wrath heroics are pretty easy to solo, although I don't know if anyone's done HoR yet. Probably.

    Keyword "ease." As far as I'm aware, most classes aside from hunters and blood DKs have difficulty soloing Wrath raids, though heroic dungeons aren't difficult at all.

    The way I've seen it in my time playing, it's basically that scaling will allow you to handle up to heroic dungeons from the previous expansion easily, raids from two expansions back and farther (depending on mechanics, gear, your own abilities, etc.). Not to mention that we've seen an approximate tripling of health pools at some point in each expansion (DPS left Wrath with ~30k health; by the time they hit 85, they were easily at 90k+).

    So, I'd say a 300k health pool could be a pretty good guess, and that's the range I've been thinking. Health likely would rise much higher as players geared up further in subsequent patches. Tanks of course would be inflated even higher still.

    Rather foolish to call next expansion "mop" as there has been no confirmation whatsoever yet.

    Exp title is really kind of irrelevant to the nature of the OP's topic.

    500k on the outside. I'd guess somewhere closer to 350-400k more likely.

    Could you possibly be that thick headed to doubt it?

    I think they will put it up to 300k with the next xpac (MoP or not, really dosent't matter, it isn't what the topic is about so everyone just Shhhhhhhhh... :P) then in the xpac AFTER that they will scale everything down and we will go back to cata numbers which is 170-200k for tanks. That's just what I think anyway, could be wrong.

    Considering

    1: its too late for them to trademark anything else
    2: The teases and hints about Pandas
    3: The increased volume of lore coming out
    4: Their appearance in comics and their own planned special
    5: TCs extremely evasive non-answer on the subject
    6: Blizzards continued lack of denial

    I'm finding it hard to think of any even semi-solid reason to doubt it.
