New major glyphs coming for defensive dispels in #Warlords. 2 charges but increases cooldown by 4 seconds. Courtesy of & co. (holinka
)Bad idea if reducing cc. Also, can you stop adding glyphs like this. Priests have more mandatory glyphs than we can use
we'd be pretty happy if everyone had more than three "mandatory" glyphs (holinka
)Do you ever think you went too far with ability pruning?
Not sure. Playing some classes on beta, I really love the extra action bar space and streamlined nature of the classes. (holinka
)Melee uptime seems really high. Dmg is high from some melee but I assume you have a series of numbers passes to do. Good stuff.
there is tuning but have heard a lot of concerns about melee mobility...but I don't think it's all melee. (holinka
)Any mobility changes planned for next build?
We probably need to start getting more specific than "mobility" at this point. Some melee are great here, others are not. (holinka
)On live I can go 10 min with almost no empty gcd. On beta I already had more empty gcd in less than 2 min testing.
There's quite a few tiers of difference involved there. That's normal. (Celestalon
)Death KnightPurpose of "Enhanced Will of the Necropolis"? Are dk tanks designed to drop below 30% every 30 secs?
"Designed to", no. Able to benefit from Will of the Necropolis that often, yes. (Celestalon
)Monkmaybe when the ww numbers start to drop you guys will agree. Blizzard sold us a "fast pacing street fighter style".
.Threats like that have long lost their sway over us. It's still a fast-based combat spec. People are are spreading this idea... (Celestalon
...that Windwalkers are some slow spec now that is energy starved. That's not at all the case. It's simply not. (Celestalon
)PaladinAttack speed from Empowered seals doesn't have any effect on Crusader Strike cooldown in beta. Intended?
Yes; attack speed is not haste. (Celestalon
)It isn't worth to seal-dance then, is it? Thank you for your answer.
It should still be. Tuning may be off. (Celestalon
)1) Can you give me a PvE scenario where Seraphim > FV/EmpS? I really don't see it beating them even after...
You find the pooling/burst gameplay fun, you want bursts semi-frequent of damage. (Celestalon
)Even if you could call it fun(you can't), damage(which it lacks) trumps fun on and serious progression
Tuning hasn't happened yet. (Celestalon
)Art the basilisks, warpstalkers and tallstriders of draenor will have new model? please they need one, thanks
We tried to update as many iconic creatures as possible, sadly we could not get them all. (_DonAdams
)PvP you mentioned a "cool new feature" you hadn't shared yet...still coming, or did I miss something?
Still coming...but there have been hints out there. (holinka
)I've been around since Day one - I would love to see stats that show me I'm wrong and PvP is not a niche
In the US and EU, the number of people doing random battlegrounds is as high or more than LFR. (holinka
likewise as many people do 2s as normal raiding. As many do 3s as heroic raiding. Not a niche. (holinka
) and the number of people doing 5's is the same as those doing CM's?
Yeah very few people do 5s and we don't think it is very good gameplay either (holinka
)Does that number filter out people doing only the legendary quest?
This was the trend before the legendary quest (holinka
)(wod) why are incaps and disorients seperate DRs? promotes caster cleaves with moonkin or wl. if combined: melee+ranged best comps
A lot of history with those DR categories. Not prepared to make that seismic of a shift. (holinka
)reading from your comment that i'm right essentially, but the change would be too much for now. right?
No not really. The game has been working pretty well with those DR categories. Don't feel such a disruptive change is needed. (holinka
)so basically Ashran is a AoE fest with PvE mobs thrown into the mix for fun?
It's important to note that we're trying to offer a new type of experience with Ashran including the "giant zerg" feel (holinka
it isn't for everyone but some people REALLY like it. Variety is the spice of life...in WoW (holinka
Also regarding the zerg, spell clutter culling will be coming soon, and that'll help with the visual soup. (Celestalon
)Are the Vicious Saddle mounts going to be obtainable in WoD as well, or will they get replaced by new mounts?
still obtainable (holinka
)Lore Reading the Talador preview. Is the Kirin Tor neutral again in WoD?
Khadgar is. He wants to get the politics out of the Kirin-Tor. (DaveKosak
)Can't you just make him a alliance hero that is willing to work with the Horde for the greater good.
That's exactly what he is. (DaveKosak
)Will we see the ettin in Draenor (WoD)? Thanks .
No ettins, but we have Ogronn, Lesser Gronn (don't think that's the real name) Gronn and Magnaron. Many giants! (_DonAdams
)Why no Ettins? WoD is as good a time as ever to explain their existence.
There is evidence that they're in the ogre/ogronn/gronn family. That's all anyone knows. (_DonAdams
)Didn't the Arakkoa try to summon an Old God to Outland so why isn't he showing up????
The Dark Conclave doesn't exist yet. Most arakkoa do not worship Old Gods. At least not at the time of WoD (BC -30 years). (_DonAdams
)Who are the Scorpars? beasts o humanoids scorpions? we will see them?
Creatures we ended up cutting. You won't see them in WoD. At least not at launch... (_DonAdams
To clarify: MAYBE NEVER. (_DonAdams
)So is Sethe who the arakkoa in Outland's SMV were trying to summon?
Nope. That was Dark Conclave trying to summon an unnamed Old God. Sethe is a primal god worshipped by the Sethekk (_DonAdams
)Is that Old God planned to show up in WoD? I.e. is he native to Draenor?
No plans for him at the moment. The arakkoa may not even be in contact with him yet. We don't know. Reputation / Questing Hi!, is the ending for FFR under redesigning? We've never been able to see it/test it, while SMV has an ending with Karabor.
Not being redesigned. The finale for Frostfire has an (amazing) in-game cinematic which we have not yet revealed. (craig_amai
)World Then... Why have them next to the giant PvP zone? Why not just make it hard by distance, which Kara/BSF provides.
Seeing other players is totally cool, see: Dalaran. Flying to stuff because your hub is not near anything isn't cool. (Muffinus
)Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Ashran the island off the coast? Seems like you put the hub far from everything...
Looking at fast ways to get from your garrison to Ashran hub. Keep in mind: Garrison is in SMV/FF, you see a lot of them. (Muffinus
)So World > Garrison > Hub is the intended path to take this expansion?
The endgame of WoD has yet to be unveiled - you'll be fighting all over, think 5.1+Timeless Isle combined (Muffinus
)Dave... Alex... Why is there suddenly, what appears to be, a portal to the Emerald Nightmare near Stormwind?
OOOoooo mystery!! (Will make sense once all the dungeons are in.) (DaveKosak
)are we going to have intact draenei cities outside of shadowmoon? ie shattrath a neutral hub?
I believe there are some in Talador? Smaller pockets of resistance, at least. (_DonAdams
)Will The Dark Portal in Outland fade away? Thanks .
Well the portal in Blasted Lands now links to Draenor (Tanaan Jungle) but as for the Hellfire portal... good question. (_DonAdams
)Garrisons Oh so will my faction Leaders randomly show up garrison? No? Ok well how about access to my bank? No?
If you've played the beta, you've seen Thrall/Durotan there. So yes, they do Storehouse gives you bank acc (Muffinus
)the ability to destroy our forces while being united
This is why you're building a garrison, Ashran isn't half of the story of what you're ultimately building up to in future. (Muffinus
)I still disagree with moving the capitols to Ashran but okay
The capitol is really your garrison, it's where you start from, where many things intersect, and ultimately = winning vs ??? (Muffinus
)So, do we get a target dummy at some point in those garrisons?
If you take the Sparring Arena, yes! (Muffinus
)Normal Garrison missions are 30m, I just got a rare mission with an 8 hour duration! Intended?
Longer time, epic-er rewards (Muffinus
