  1. Why do you troll people on this site? didn't you quit wow forever ago? saying that quest is an easter egg... not very subtle about it are you? on topic: I think it's about time the pandaren got some real lore. not particularly fond of the race; I tend to dislike the more cute races, but then again blizz is saying they're going to be more than that come mists, so who knows.
  2. I never said I thought PvP was dead, just hardcore PvP. I'm talking about people who go for gladiator every season and used to follow MLG arena back when it still existed.
  3. http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x178/Wnx_Child/rogue_tier5.jpg Take a look at that image, at the skill in the middle. You'll notice that it's a stun that you can't time yourself; its timing is completely determined by RNG. This is one of many indications in the new skills that Blizzard's focus is not on making PvP skill-based, but simply catering to what people clamor for on the forums and whatnot. (essentially, everyone wants to be the most overpowered) Rogues screamed about wanting more stuns and shadowstep for non-sub rogues, now they're getting it. In another tier of the skills, you have to choose between Preparation and Shadowstep. I have no problem with making people deal with tough choices for spells, but both of these are "skill abilities," aka skills that reward players for having good timing/reflexes/strategy. Because you have to choose between the two, Blizzard is essentially removing skill from WoW PvP. Case in point: take a look at paralytic poison again. How does that reward the player at all? You could time it to a point but not precisely. Even the most skilled players will sometimes have unlucky poison procs that happen too early or too late, screwing up their stun timing. TLDR: They're taking skill out of the game, that's why I think hardcore PvPers will be alienated come Mists. EDIT: Oh yeah, and the new BGs do look pretty cool. Payload is meh for me, but the dota one really has me intrigued. Third person MOBA would be insanely fun.
  4. As is I can't see myself playing mists simply because of the PvP changes. Every change projected is one that will make the game easier and reward players who choose the faceroll route when making their new builds. So I guess you can add hardcore PvPers to the list of people to be alienated. I have hope that changes will be made though.
  5. I don't care much for the change either way, but I would prefer they have just given all classes a knockback. Like Warriors... give them an ability where they punch the target so hard they go flying twenty yards. Then you could re-enact .Just pretend the platform is your flyer.
  6. Pretty neat stuff. I can't get over the tuskarr death knight, especially his pet. Like the angel and corruption ones too, and Rohan's sword. As for the last one... very mature, heh. Now you have to make one with Armageddon hilted in both your characters' backsides! Only fair!
  7. It would all depend on what type of disease it was and what bodily functions the undead in question needs to survive. For example, if your character still breathes mostly like a living person, a disease that messes with the respiratory system is still going to affect him/her.

  9. that was pretty funny, especially when that guy turned out to be a gun enthusiast

Kor was having trouble though.

    DK PVP

    They don't balance the game around battlegrounds, and for good reason. And I've used DG chains in world PvP to get guard humpers out of their hidey holes. In arena, even in 5s, it's not going to matter.
