Small Aura Change

Postby Fridmarr » Wed Oct 15, 2008 3:51 pm

Doesn't effect us too much, but Auras are now off the GCD with a 1 second cooldown.

Good, that'll make PvP a little easier. ^^

This is great news for fighting mobs that use multiple schools of magic.

Aura dance was funny. Just throwing out props as i see them needed
When I was 8 years old, I watched my mother kill a spider with a tea cozy. Many years later I would find out that it wasnt a spider, it was my uncle harold.

You know what's sad? GC said they might revert it if people start doing just that. I mean, god forbid we play smart and swap auras on demand.

I'll be able to make a macro to switch to crusader aura + summon a mount.

That, is all the convenience in the world. I spit at thee riding crop.

With Sanctity Aura no longer in existance, there really isnt much you can benefit from by aura-dancing any more.

Thats prolly why they changed it now I think of it.

you see a mage winding up a pyro, you swap to fire aura, he pops out a water elemental, you change to frost...I don't think theyd want us to have that kind of resistance ability, especially since our auras contribute a much higher % to the resistance cap now

Yes, 23,75% instead of I think 15%.

But only a very selected few will ever dance the aura dance in pvp.

Be nice to swap conc aura in when cast a heal though. Trying to PvP in prot spec makes healing hard!

actually, unless I'm mistaken.... with it off gcd, you can macro it to switch to conc aura and then heal, right ?
