    If blessings added effects to your other spells and were consumed on that other spell's use that could work.

    The Necrolord plate is pure edgelord sex. I love it.

    Interesting that we will be able to improve our gear with conquest points, guess that we will have something similar for PvE? Can wait to see those class changes.
    Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

    I'm thinking the alpha build goes up tonight so things are prepared, and then later in the week they intend for servers to open up and invitations to go out.

    I just feel like I'm playing Darksiders when I'm looking at it.

    This is the first time Blizzard explicitly says you need an active subscription to get invited for an expansion test.

    and no, Classic is not an expansion.

    So as I speculated, very complete Alpha.
    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing...

    Yeah that'd be rad. I'd love one that you cast on yourself or another player, and if the player building up your damage if you take a beating. Sort of like a glorious, holy comeback.

    I'm glad they're pushing the class changes as the first thing in the alpha.

    Makes sense.
    Why would you want some guy that hasn't been around for 5 years to be at the frontlines of alpha testing?

    I certainly hope not, lol. I stopped playing my shaman because of their current state (or maybe I'm just bad). Fingers crossed they get the fixing they deserve.

    They already posted the Shaman changes:

    The argument will be "if you're actively subbed to BFA you don't know what's best for the game".

    “We want to hear if we went too far with un-pruning”

    If you complain about cosmetic abilities you are a dick

    "Obviously, I.. person who hasn't been subbed for half a decade and who proclaims that WoW is dead at least ten times a week, am most suited and qualified to analyze the merits of this new expansion through experiencing its alpha stage before any paying subscriber."

    It may be the first time they've said it, but it's certainly not the first time they've done it.]

    And it makes sense. There's little point inviting lapsed subs to alphas and betas. I mean, they definitely used to invite lapsed subs to betas (up to MoP at least), and guess what? I know I ignored every single invite, and I would bet virtually everyone with a lapsed sub did. People let subs lapse for a lot of reason. Very few of them do it because they actually want to seriously alpha/beta-test the next expansion but aren't otherwise interested in the game. Most people with lapsed subs are either too busy to play WoW, disenchanted with WoW (which an alpha won't magically change), or playing something else.
