More information will be provided on this upcoming service when we are closer to launching it. Hang tight, it's not far off.
AP Debuff in raids and important buffs/debuffs (Source Re: Paid Race Change - Need Blizzard Rep)
original concern was for a 10-player group. We don't assume an AP
debuff for a 10-player raid, though it is certainly nice to have. We
assume you have it in a 25-player raid. We make some assumptions about
the most important buffs and debuffs for larger raids, particularly
those trying the heroic / hard mode content. Those include things like
Replenishment, Fort, Kings, Gift, Bloodlust / Heroism, CoE, the AP
debuff, Sunder Armor, the attack speed debuff, and maybe Scorch and a
few others. Even in those cases you don't need every buff / debuff the
game offers and even if you're missing one of the big ones, you can
overcome that with enough skill (or gear). The bosses don't do an
instant berserk if they detect you are missing Demo Shout. Yes, it will
be harder without. Hard modes are for guilds capable of doing hard
modes. Normal modes are for almost everyone.
Shout isn't hard to get. No, you can't just randomly assemble any 10
characters and have a strong raid comp. But you certainly have a lot
more flexibility in how you assemble your groups than in the BC
content, and the proof of that is in the enormous diversity of raids
that are beating the encounters.
Questlines related to Varimathras completable again in 3.3 (Source Re: Dear Lady Sylvanas)
A bronze whelp delivers the following note, which certainly doesn't seem to be in Sylvanas' hand:
You're right. Someone has to fill the void and take care of business.
I'll take that scroll from you when I get to my post.
There's no further signature, but oddly, it seems to be dated "3.3"...
Ram Racing reset changes to 18 hours (Source Re: still cant do the ram racing quest)
just popping in to confirm this resets every 18 hours, not 12 as has
been the case in previous years. [...] It's every 18 hours from when
you last did it, and no, there's no place to check when your time will
[...] The idea is it's meant to be done once a day. The
18 hour reset is there so the time is more flexible for people who
might do it later one day and earlier the next, as opposed to, say, a
23 hour reset which would be a significant detriment to those with
limited but inconsistent time to play.
Shadow Priests (Source Re: Browsed a few topics not impressed)
the case of Shadow priests, we thought damage was a little low and made
a very small adjustment. Many Shadow priests think their dps is still
unacceptably low, but we don't agree. (That also doesn't mean we won't
make changes in the future. We do change our minds.)
Vanish Bugs (Source Re: Browsed a few topics not impressed)
failing is a bug, but it's a hard one to fix, and rogues are dominant
in both PvE and PvP despite of it, so it's also not a "all hands on
deck" problem either.
