4.3 thoughts

Michael Myers anyone.....

First off my beloved priests, our T13. I am not sure about it. I really like T12 so far. T13 reminds me of Holloween and mardi gras. Well with Transmog, it’s a moot point.

The bonuses for t13:

  • Healer, 2P — After using Power Infusion or Lightwell, the mana cost of your healing spells is reduced by 25% for [10|15] sec. (10 sec for Discipline, 15 for non–Discipline.)
  • Healer, 4P — Your Power Word: Shield has a 10% chance to absorb 100% additional damage, and the cooldown of your Holy Word abilities is reduced by 20%.
  • Shadow, 2P — Shadow Word: Death deals an additional 55% damage, and you no longer take damage from your own Shadow Word: Death when the target fails to die.
  • Shadow, 4P — Your Shadowfiend and Shadowy Apparitions have a 100% chance to grant you 3 Shadow Orbs each time they deal damage.

For healers: I am not sold on the 2P, especially as Holy. But it could be worse. For 4P – one word: blarg.

Shadow definitely wins out here. To be honest I would not be surprised to see it altered in some form before final release.

The changes to Holy for 4.3 are a step in the right direction – the changes to Divine Hymn and the ability to strenthen it and lessen its cooldown is quite nice. Its also nice to see they are fixing atonement to take into account large hitboxes (Beth’Tilac, and Rag made atonement useless)

The changes to Wild Growth were surprising to me.

•Wild Growth healing value has been reduced by 20%.
•Glyph of Wild Growth now also increases the cooldown on Wild Growth by 2 seconds.

Straight up nerf to druids? Why? Sure they are healing beasts, but does not make them seem OP or anything. It’s the player playing the class which makes it’s good, not the class. bad player still means bad druids.

Paladin’s also got some changes – no more mana from judging…they have to use spirit more. Why? Maybe someone can answer this, but are there low spirit paladins out there? (I know as disc i reforged a bunch of it away)

Other things that caught my eye was the new mounts. 🙂
Dancing Darkmoon bear! yes, please!

Also I know I should not have looked at it, but I could not help but look at the dungeon jounrnal preview for the new raid.

A few things caught my eye.
1.) Looks like a lot of damage sharing, so stacking…(SR we are screwed)
2.) Other mechanics where the raid may have to use the boss’ own abilities against it.
3.) Thrall as Earth Warden? not surprised really.
4.) Tyrande of the past…hawt….hopefully they will also make this her in game model. It’s quite impressive looking.

    I’m totally OP, but we like it like that, right? This nerf is stupid.

    Past model – Illidan is going to inspire a LOT of angsty fanfic. Like, more than I expect he already does.

      LOL yeah the illidan model…yeah I can see lots of angst starting cause of that. Like him or not he is a quite the iconic character in the WoW world.

      Yeah as far as druids, not sure if the nerf was needed, as i said a druid can only be OP by the player controlling them.

    It’s not a nerf to pally mana regen. Read ALL of the changes … the mana regen was rolled into Judgements of the Pure. Basically, now you only have to judge once every 30s instead of once every 8s. As if I really judged that often … I have also removed some of the spirit from my gear.

    I was looking at that Mr. Robot today that so many gush about, and that idiot wanted me to replace almost all of my red gems with purple int/spirit gems … and that was with it set on throughput and not mana conservation! Stupid.

      Mr robot does some odd things for sure

    I’m not a fan of Mr. Robot. IMO it is bad about break points on haste and over estimates stat wieghts when it feels that they are under a predetermined “ideal” level.

    This T13 set makes priests look like a candelabra.

      Can’t wait to see it heading up a tauren’s hunch. And then hide it forever. Probably look good on a belf tho.
