This is the official word from SE.
The older ones were based on half infomation, rumors, people blowing things out of proportaion and poor translation.
No this is not a post saying the giant internet dragon is going to die anytime soon. This is more like that my days of bubble priesting etc. may end soon.
Too many neat MMO’s I want to try out coming out soon.
As I have mentioned FF14, I am eagerly waiting for. I have seen the issues and I do not care, I am FF fanboi at heart
On the issue of fatigue in FF14, I see nothing wrong with this. I think in the beginning especially that a way to get people to see all aspects of the game instead of rushing to max lvl is a good thing. Furthermore, what game on release has actual endgame material??? And for people like me who like to lvl…this will only benefit us.
2.) Tera – ooo sparkly!
-looks impressive, on par with Aion and FF14
-the combat will be A LOT more active then other MMO’s. More akin to an action game like God Of War. Players will have a block move, and will have to watch visual and audio cues from mobs to know when to block, move, stun a mob.
-I do have reservations as it maybe grindy to an extreme. (Hey it is a Korean game!) Aion was a nice looking game, but lacking.
3.) Star Wars: The Old Republic – Force Push!
-Its Star Wars! Jedi! Light Sabers! Come on!
-Its made by Bioware!
-….Bioware is owned by EA ><
-Bioware has never made an MMO.
-Advanced job system sounds cool and space combat!
And good ol' Cata…needs to get here sooner!
So…yeah….what are you people looking for there in the internet world??
One makes sense….alliance paladin funny. Yeah I do have a paladin etc.
The other one – ostrich may bite…wow people really? lol. But yeah seeing an ostrich bite people is funny when I think about it.
RS made easier! – From Dreambound by Kae
Throne of Tides video! From Kurn’s great site. Great info on hunters and holy paladins!
Crickets pets! Why Del why!!!!
Sunset!! taken from my fav lock’s site, nice SS as usual!
Great noob moments! the troll with the bestest mohawk! Check it out. Great humor and insight!
Da POOP! As usual Rivs delivers his wit and the laughs. Besides he is/was a WAR player. thumbs up! Blood for the blood god!
Yay FF14 NDA released! Some great info released so far.
The above link to Eorzeapedia.com has some nice screenshots and info on Guildleves, crafting and armor.
The guildleves sound like a blast and promotes grouping. Also seems like a decent way to get items and gear.
Crafting sounds like it will be a blast. Crafting minigames! Makes crafting interesting then in other games where it is gather this, craft this.
It is cool to note: necklaces, rings, and earrings will be dispalyed on your character! About time!
Nice info on recent changes…one thing I liked was more character creation options! RAWR!
I cant find it now but apparently FF14 may have a Emblem/token system like WoW? So excited!
In WoW news still working on 25 man heroics. Still unsure about 25 man raids but still fun nonetheless. Can’t wait to see what falls tonight!
Does your raid need a Holy Paladin??? Do you need toe-curling, huge heals splashing over you? Do you need a plated crusader saving you from the brink of death? Then call for your friendly Alliance/Horde Holy Paladin. Only $1.99 per minute. errrr….
Or do you need the bubbly fun time of a disc priest! Like OMG bubbles!!!!!! WEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! Sparkly lazor healz!!! Divine Aegis – maor bubbles??? Wut???? woot!
Maybe your style is the more serious, eyes toward the light Holy Priest? Even in death I heal as (fail)angel! Carry on the fight without me, my comrades! *dies*
When you play, what do you think of other classes/spec?
1.) Trees – they stand around dancing and throwing green stuff at people….hmmm….magic grass? Their HoTs are something I usually over right by healing right over them….come on do they actual heal? (jk I love my fellow healers, In fact I am leveling one up right now)
2.) Boomchickens, lazorturkeys, critchickens – Oh how I love the moonkina aura…other then that….they are fluffballs…that shoot green stuffs…and occasionally root things….and sit on Fish Feasts!!
3.) Feral – ahh the DPS kittehs and bears….haven’t seen a lot of them….but seem they may need some moar flea shots!!
Oh yes…the Battle Rez and the invenerate are nice as well! A+ in my book.
1.) Resto – stop butting on my turf with your Chain Heal, Ancestral whatever it is called!!! And Earth Shield – psh Power Word: Shield and Divine Shield are teh bestest!
2.) Elemantal and Enhancement Shaman – squishy XD
Bloodlust and the meh alliance version – thank god for shammys, Their totems are useful at times as well
1.) Uh…I find the ones that are played well, rock…otherwise….useless….
They also like to hang out with ghouls….ewww!!!
In all seriousness, a well played DK is a thing of beauty. Tanking and pulling loose mobs back. Death and Decay putrifying mobs.
1.) Fury Warriors – they like to go squish/splat. (stares at Zug) However, their DPS can be impressive.
2.) Prot Warriors – They save me from getting my face melted!!!! But sometimes I think they take one too many hits to face. XD
3.) Arms Warrior – ??? They exist? lol JK
Sunders, AoE stuns, Charging into battle…what is there not to like?
Ahhh the hunters….like Death Knights….they range from the 1337 DPS to wut? How do I play level.
Replenishment (depending on the spec) is NOM!. They can put out useful traps and stuff. A-Ok!
Warlocks and Mages
They pew pew??? One has pets and the other has a Squirtle at times…they have portals?? Are they the same job? They both can make good baked goods….maybe combine both jobs
They are awesome DPS, provide useful buffs and raid toys.
Oh how I hate thee in PvP….gimme my kidneys back!!! They also seem to floortank a lot at times as well….FoK!!!
What can I say disarming traps, ok! Good solid DPS.
Other Priests and Paladins
Other Disc priests – wut 2 in one raid? Why? T_T
Another Holy Priest – yay AoE the hell out of the raid. MAOR fail angels!!! And yay Guardian Spirit x2!
Shadow – wut??? *blinks* priests that dun healz??? Dee Pee SSS??? *dies*
Retribution – see above, death knights and hunters. One word – faceroll.
Protection Pallys – see warrior description. But with one added bonus from being on the Horde….AWESOME HAIR!~ (and a large bill for hairspray)
After numerous refinements and 3 hrs…finally he IS DEAD!!!! Kingslayer mine!!!
Arvash – Paladin
Zincarla – Death Knight
Liyhe – Disc Priest
Karesen – Resto Druid
Sorak – Resto Shaman
Delerius – Boomkin
Lyssianna – Aff lock
Daddypants – Shadow Priest
Zugzuug – Fury Warrior
Bulldiesel – Fury Warrior
Thanks to Bull and Daddy of TD. thanks for the assist in getting this done!
Time for heroics
Just because i get a kick out of this and appears there will be another LK attempt tonight. I wanna link to this aweome strat and awesome blog.
I totally recommend people heading over there and reading this, even though you may never gotten there, already beaten it…it is still a fun read. The Blog is also made of win!
Ok….this was amusing apparently someone looking for ostrich bite found this blog due to seatching for ostrich bite…wow lol. Makes me wonder and kind of scared at what kind of thing people are looking for. Just yesterday a friend of mine mentioned to me he was SOOO bored one day he watched videos on Youtude of people popping boils and other assorted things…ewwwww…./puke.
Although I PvP in bursts, and I always bitch and moan about it…I do actualy enjoy it. The thrill of pounding someone into the ground and stealing their lunch money is fun. The chaotic nature of the battlefield, and the randomness of what people may do, is a rush. For the most part I have stayed as a healer for the most part in battlegrounds in WoW….but no matter what MMO I am playing seems like there is always people who do not understand what the hell they are doing.
1.) Fighting in the wrong area for no gain…STUPID! Fighting in the middle of Warsong Gultch never made much sense to me, unless you are chasing someone down or defending flag carrier.
2.) Going after the wrong target when engaging a group of enemies. It never stops to amaze me when people go kill a DPS or a tank before killing me, a healer, first.
3.) AFKing in a BG…yeah…bad.
4.) Fighting for the flag in the middle in Eye of the Storm…when you only have 1 tower…
5.) And cause i wanna QQ – damn stealthing rogues….ARGH!!! Gimme my kidneys back!
Hmmm….PvPing makes me wanna reinstall WAR….
With the talent Calculator over at MMO Champion up…I finally decided to go ahead and play around with it. (hence the title). I have to say for priest I do not mind the changes, I am positive about them so far.
For Discipline 33/8/0 seems feasible.
1st tier talents
2 talents that strengthen da bubbles right off the bat. Improved Power Word: Shield and Twin Disciplines. = Sexy!
Mental Agility = ok.
2nd tier talents
I am not too keen on. I was never a big fan of doing maor dmg to do betta healin. But if it means more mana regen….then maybe. (was not too keen on it in Warhammer Online). Improved inner fire – ok.
Imp. Mana Burn = …….
3rd tier talents
Power Infusion = sexy!
Atonement = again not a fan of the doing dmg thing….bad flash backs from Archmages in Warhammer, DPSing and not healing….
4th tier talents
Reflective Shield = meh.
Rapture = yay!
Power Infusion(?)= looks crazy good.
5th and 6th tier talents
No complaints what so ever.
Taken from the Holy Tree - I am a big fan of inspiration. Divine fury or Renew would be ok i guess. empowered healing not a bad choice.
But my fav talent so far, for this new Disc tree – Power Word: Barrier! BOOOOMMMM BREAK THIS BUBBLE.
I have to say for Disc priests so far I do like what is going to happen in Cata. As far as for holy priests…still thinking about how I feel on that.
7/22/10 – LK DOWNED – well to 40%. Still a pain in the arse fight. Defile is not cool when coupled with a Valkyr spawn.
We had p1 down and the transitions phases well for the most part. Its seems to always be Valkyr + defile which wiped us.
Other then a few fluke wipes….everyone improved and saw the fight.
Familiarity with the fight is most important.
I am glad people who have not seen the fight, a chance to become familiar with it and see what it is all about.
