nah, in the standard 'epic barbarian wielding 2 giant axes/swords/whatever' way, it was pretty cool. It's a fantasty game with plenty of other standard tropes (hi, armorkini!) I'd rather see go first :P


though the animations for the polearms may look a bit silly (unless they get changed), it was kind of annoying to get a polearm on my fury warrior from a scenario lootbag, knowing I couldn't actually use it. Similarly, it seems kinda dumb to have a spec basically have 2 completely different and incompatable weapon schemes.

so there should be a titan-minded fury?
ala combat rogues with a slow MH and fast OH? just scaled up to be a 2hd MH and 1 hd OH? (that actually sounds interesting, but would prob be a bitch to try to balance 3 different weapon sets for one spec)

Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.

that is one option: basically set the abilities, and let the community figure out the optimum or simply choose one and make it so you don't need to do the balance dance twice for one spec (though the current ~3% spread based on noxxic's guide seems pretty darn good).

just voicing an opinion, not really able to propose something better.

According to MMO-Champ, you'll be able to Tmog directly from your bank or void storage!

Sure, I get that lots of people like it (brain damage from too much anime is my guess), so I don't actually mind Titan's Grip. I do love that they added SMF so that using one handers is viable again, so I don't have to use TG.

Anybody know if the quest for the item level 600 cloaks are spec specific (so if you do the quest as a paladin tank, you wouldn't be offered the dps cloak with haste/mastery/crit)?

good question, though given the work they are putting in to allow people to specify specs, I hope they'll work that into the questing system somehow.

Who knows, they might even have the flash of brilliance to give paladin tanks the option of the dps cloak by default...

All quests with significant rewards (epics) have allowed you to choose the rewards like old quests.

Latest from the blues:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/8569598546
Those client strings for an in-game browser we've been seeing on the datamining sites are now explained. Blizzard is indeed putting a web browser into the game, which will link to the Battle.net support site. This will replace the existing in game support system.

Am I the only one scared by this idea? Web browsers are like buckets with a lot of holes in them, with some of them fixed by putting something over them...

Wowojuju even goes as far as claiming that it is an IE browser... (source)

This scares me even more >.< Same with the comment on that post... "would be nice to access anything from there". No it wouldnt >.< I think its a huge backdoor for hackers with big neon letters saying: Please hack us, you can enter here.

If it's limited so that it can only go to the support site and nothing else, and perhaps even loads the site through your game connection, then it might still be safe. I assume they're smart enough not to open up their support system to third party addons, as well.

I'm not that scared - Eve has had an ingame browser for ages, without any significant issues - it just has to not use any of the backdoor coding possibilities (Pure HTML cannot hijack anything)

IE10 is actually the most secure browser on the market right now. If it had an ad-blocker I would use it instead of Firefox.

Oh, did they finally remove 2h Frost and split DW/2h for monks?

With the addons, you can do it currently. You can open your void storage while at tmogger and can open tmog window at bank or anywhere really, though you still have to go to the tmog guy to apply the changes you've set.

Retribution is SOOOOOOOOOOO fine that,if the datamining from MMo-c isnt wrong, after buffing sword of light +5% with 5.2 they are going to buff it again


Only,+15% this time :lol:

Kind of interested in the hunter changes too...Blink strike a.k.a "the lvl75 talent no one takes" might become really,really interesting,for BM at least

Using Exemplar's spreadsheet, with the preloaded gear its about a 10% DPS increase with same rotation (though CS would hit harder than Exorcism so there may be a rotation change).

Good stuff.

Wonder what the replacement is... meanwhile they are still twiddling with powershot which no one uses as well, trying to make it more rotational.

GC tweets that datamined buffs to Ret, Enh, WW, Feral, Hunters, and Mage are all real and not tooltip changes. Colour me surprised about Enhance - that's a significant buff, and I didn't think we were behind.

When finally saw some mages returning to fire, they nerf them again, and everybody will go frost or arcane

That hunter buff is nice, 15% to 25% AoT hawk..

AoTH was a tooltip change.

The Blink change is interesting, will need to see if that's better for BM than the other choices. Cleave change might have been tooltip as well.

Powershot still sucks.
