    Guess all the whining on guardians in arena payed of

  3. #3
    Is this an additional 25% nerf to Infinite stars, or the same one seen before?

  4. #4
    The nerf to protector of the pack was clearly due to the complaints in arena, and at least justified in a way, but that den mother change literally made that talent almost worthless. No guardian druid is going to run den mother over almost any other pvp talent now, and that's saying something.

    I was waiting for a Xuen nerf, glad it's not an across the board one. I was trying all day yesterday not to let people in on how powerful it was fearing that it would lead to a quicker nerf. given the buff to abilities they had to have intended for it to be somewhat as powerful as it was. will have to take it for a test drive once I'm finished running many alts through the cloak storyline.

    On EU, yesterday evening, about 3 hours before the maintenance, I ran my first 2 horrific visions in Orgrimmar on an alt and got 0 loot (besides mementos and the legendary thing for Wrathion). I see nothing about fixing this in this patch note. I hear from Bellular and such that I should be getting 420 LoveCrafted gear. Should I be worried?

    Do note that you only get each gear reward once per week(with it getting replaced by the next lower one you're still eligible for), so at least one of those runs should in fact not have rewarded anything.

    Still no fix to the AH issue. Still not getting the mail with gold from the auctions

    Duly noted. Still, these were my first two visions on the character, I should have gotten at least one piece of gear. I hope the next vision I do will reward me with one, so I can get more progress done than +1 rank to the cloak.

    The difficulty of Therin Skysong, Alran Heartshade, Zuna Skullcrush pet battle encounters have been lowered.
    Oh shit... pet battle casuals have had problems with their 'content'.

    They are shit indeed, but do you need to do them? I just need 150cv a day from dailies/events to get my 3 horrific runs a week, don't see the point in doing them more then that.

    Rep. And it's pretty telling when people tell you not to do it because it's shit to do for meagre gains.

    I've done 8.3 for litterally 4 days before I figured "yeah, not, tired of that, it's not worth my time, I leave them to those who enjoy them / really want to max out their gains". Now it's just the daily minor vision in Vale / Uldum, the 2 weekly assaults and the major visions in Orgrimmar/Stormwind. Likely for the next 8 months. Yay!

    Depends on the dailies... The one with Goliaths, for example can take you 40 minutes before you get the drop... 10% drop rate to 1m hp mobs, highly contested since there's only so many up...

    40 minutes? No need to be hyperbolic
