RD change

Postby Ocin » Thu Jul 31, 2008 7:27 am

According to MMO-Champion today:

"Righteous Defense no longer costs mana and the global cooldown has been removed."

Been scooped already but yeah this is a good change.

It's removed the global cooldown, not the spell cooldown.

This means you can use RD without having to wait 1.5secs before using the next ability.

Edit: I guess you realised the point and deleted your question as I was typing this.

I would still like to see some work done to prevent miss-taunts.
Many times i have use my taunt and right when spell goes on CD the mob changed target so i taunted the wrong raidmember = mob still loose to hunt others :(

If Blizzard doesn't stop fixing everything I'm going to run out of things to complain about. :D

Use the target of target version and that should not matter. Then you target the mob and taunt him/her + 2

I can't resist quoting myself from before this was announced:

Dorvan wrote:Yeah, I think our taunt is a reasonable tradeoff in terms of positives and negatives. Only thing I'd like to see is it's mana cost removed, and maybe taken off the GCD. A rage-starved warrior can at least taunt to take a couple hits and get going again. A mana-starved Paladin (I'm looking at you, Blackheart Evil or Very Mad ) can only try whacking away at a JoW that's hopefully up while wishing their mana pot would get off cooldown.

The baseline spell does this since 2.3 or 2.4 (i forget which). There's no need for a macro.

There's need for a macro if you need to taunt off an NPC. Like, say, taunting off the Tauren Warrior in MH so you still have them alive for Azgalor.

As far as complaining goes, I would pass on Spell Reflect. I just hope it isn't a requirement for some boss fight gimmick in WotLK. At this point the ONLY issues I think I still see with Pallys in the expansion are silence vulnerability and how hard it's going to be to find the optimum spec with all these awesome changes. Especially if they change Shield Spec. to increase block value from Strength. I'll be royally SOL in terms of trying to figure out what I'm going to do without a pruning down of the Prot bloat.

Not really, done hyjal yesterday, and even though i'm not using any macro for RD, i'm absolutely sure it worked on npcs like it does on players now. Thanks blizz :P

Waiting to hear the new 51 point fury tallent lets you create deathknights at lv 60 instead of 55.
