New content? Really? Or is Blizzard trying to be green?

Maybe its a little burn out or perhaps just summer blues? But looking at WoW….is Cata really as great as we all thought/hoped it would be?

Looking back, overall, I did like the feel and look of the new zones….but it does seem something is missing…Oh yeah a story…..while leveling thru Northrend you know you would be seeing LK and many things tied to him or he even made an appearence. I think Deathwing makes one appearence, rag makes 1, and so does Cho’gall, the questing areas can be done very quickly.

Another thing as people who have been playing WoW for a lot longer then I….many fights recycle samethings over and over again. Packaged as a new fight, but in reality it is not.

Sure I still get pumped about doing the fights, but once the excitement is done and fights analyzed ( how well we did, where we did wrong), they are still all too similar.

Magmaw – reminds me a lot of Marrowgar. At times heavy tank dmg, with periods of heavy raid damage, and adds (bone spikes) which need to die.

Omnotron Defense System – Northrend beast 2.0. A fight involing numerous bosses with differnt abilities to avoid.

Maloriak – For some reason reminds me of Lord J. Kill adds, burn boss, avoid bad, dispel buff (remedy), spell steal buff, etc etc etc.

Chimaeron – Anub 2.0. Only heal to a certain point. Burn.

Atramedes – Sindy…avoid bad stuff when she is in air. Avoid big bad spell (searing flame/and her drawn in ability). Avoid the circles of sound, avoid killing your raid with engulging magic.

Comes down to it…too many fights are too similar….Firelands looks to be a little different. 🙂 (but then again how much can one change a fight to not make it too similar…I dont think there really can be a “unique” fight)

Also http://i.wow.joystiq.com/2011/06/09/patch-4-2-fandrals-flamescythe-turns-feral-cats-fiery/ – FIRE CAT! Must be mine. Screw legendary staff. HAWT CAT! (RANDOM THOUGHT OF AWESOMENESS)

Do we have the “b” team on wow now?

With Diablo 3 on Blizzard’s plate, their new codenamed game, expansions for Statcraft 3….is Blizzard’s “B” team on WoW? To be honest I would not be surprised.

Look at the horrible bugs that came with Dragon Age 2’s release…how did they miss those bugs…how did quality control miss that? Did Bioware once again take the “A” team and place them on SWTOR and Mass Effect 3? I would not be surprised….

Seems like that it maybe the case with WoW as well. Months for a new raid….4.1 was meh. Once we get 4.2 what is next? The Abyssal Maw stuff? Oh wait…that was supposed to be with release, just like the firelands were supposed to. So instead of giving stuff they would have early, they are going to pre-package and say hey new stuff for joo. However, in reality, it is late dinner for us. 4.3 and on better be brighter and MORE awesome…or it will really show they put Team B on work for WoW and are just trying to milk WoW for all its worth.

    Well, I still do mean to get you a legendary staff for your Crits mage…. after we build Falahla’s. I bet we’re epic enough for two staffs!

    I’ve been enjoying 4.1 way more than other raids because this is the first time I hit the ground running with a team and gear and a plan. I didn’t DO beasts, or Jaraxxus, when they were really hard. I did do Magmaw when the flame pillars were tough.

      I don’t know what to call it, but I do like Cata, however something is bothering me about 4.1 raids. I guess it is the lack of things tying the raids together. ICC was LK. This tier…yes I know they tie into deathwing somehow, but the overall theme of them are not clicking with me. Maybe because they are all generic looking? Naxx was naxx, ICC was ICC, Toc and Ulduar and so forth. BWD, BoT, tot4w, something seems lacking to me. The challenge is nice for sure. 🙂

        I think Firelands will help with that tied together feel. I agree, it’s like, ok, Twilight Hammer, yeah let’s do them. But why are we in BWD? I guess someone told us Nefarion wasn’t as dead as we’d hoped so we have to clear it out?

          What I think is funny is both him and his sister came back from having their heads cut off.

          How do you manage to pull that off?!?!

            Because every evil doer has a setback

    WoW makes Blizzard a ton of money, it’ll be by far their biggest cash cow. That being said, I doubt they have their “B Team” working on their content. And wtf?! Since when did you ever take the time to read story line? You’re all about going from “sword +1” to “sword +2”.

    To this day I still dunno who that fatty human is that steals our glory for the LK kills!

      *sigh* Don’t you guys read quest text? Oh wait, you don’t quest, you’re too busy controlling the AH and tanking the floor. :p

      Van will soon be a Crusader and is working on Argent Champion as well. Heck, I’ve done half of the 140 quests in Icecrown already just dicking around. I miss Wrath (aka All Tirion All The Time) 😦
