[Rant-ish] "Bring the player not the class" -Blizzard

[Rant-ish] So that's blizzards philosophy moving forward, they have basically nuked almost all class' buffs (MOTW gone, pallies kept their buffs, stam gone, LotP gone, Moonkin aura gone), so the utility of each class is basically gone. And while this is still the start of the expansion, and everything is still way up in the air right now in terms of balance, there's massive problems with certain classes getting shot out of groups which is seen here, every few hours. This is not so much a problem for me right now as I play tanks, people are floored when I pick up a "WEAKER/INFERIOR CLASS". This happened last night, I picked up a warlock for a group, as they were good item level, I ...

PSA: Revert Tab Targeting back to pre 7.0

PSA: Revert Tab Targeting back to pre 7.0I've noticed a lot of people having issues with the new Tab Targeting system 7.0 bought in, however the old pre 7.0 tab targeting is still available and just needs a Cvar set to get it working again.   /console TargetNearestUseOld 1 (Have to do this every time you log in) you can macro this if you prefer to go the no add on route.   or   go into your Config.wtf file (make a backup first) and add the following line at the bottom: SET TargetNearestUseOld "1" This changes the tab targeting back to how it was pre 7.0 (People are reporting the WTF file is reverting changes to it at this time)   so another option is   https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/advan...

Reeves shouldn't need a battery everytime

Reeves shouldn't need a battery everytimeI think it's pretty bad design for reeves to require a battery everytime you want to summon him. Sure, he has a wide variety of uses - but you can only choose one. I feel that all of his uses are really made redundant by other items. It's simply not worth it to spend the gold on a battery. The only useful thing he can do that nothing else can is turn into the Blingtron 6000. And even then, unless there is an achievement like there was for the Blingtron 5000, or he has some unique items that have some form of use, I don't really see the point in effectively paying to summon him to use as a Blingtron, over the alternatives. Long story short, reeves batteries shouldn't be consum...

I was exploring and look what I found...

I was exploring and look what I found...I was exploring and I accidentally died to fall damage at the Lost Temple on the Broken shore, when I hit release it auto spawned me to this location... http://imgur.com/a/BLzVN an alternative Lost Temple, now facing north instead of south. Anytime I try to escape this spawn it keeps teleportation me back. Any clues as to what this is? Update: Died to fall damage in the area when i tried to get to the mainland. Spawned in Westfall. wtf? Update 2: Looks like a flipped version of the Broken Shore. Update 3: Tried to replicate it, whenever I try to release it says " Transfer Aborted: Instance not found" submitted by /u/AdamZetti [link] [comments]...

Chris Metzen Leaving Blizzard

Chris Metzen Leaving BlizzardChris Metzen Leaving BlizzardChris Metzen is leaving Blizzard to take a break and spend time with his family. We wish him the best and will miss him!Originally Posted by Blizzard(Blue Tracker / Official Forums)I had just turned twenty years old when I started working at Blizzard. Seems like a lifetime ago. Guess it was. Those first few years were the start of a very grand adventure for me, one that would take me around the world, introduce me to thousands of wonderful geeks just like me—and ultimately shape the course of my adult life.Of course when I started, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I had no idea how to make games or build entertainment products.…But I had an insatiab...

Tanks and heals determine speed of play.

Tanks and heals determine speed of play.I have always been of the opinion that the tank and healer are the ones that determine how fast you move through an instance. All I do is tank. And I'm not saying that I am unopen to advice (for instance "hey we can skip these packs if we go this way") but I get aggravated when dose decides to start pulling mobs because they don't think the dungeon is going fast enough. I'm not slow by any stretch, and I pay attention to my healers mana. So the first time it happens I generally pick the mobs up, the second time though I generally pick them up after whoever pulled them dies. So my question is, am I the only one who does this? submitted by /u/Docfaustius [...

[Mini guide] Withered army training, after 3 days of waiting and preparations, it felt sooo good/rewarding! Explanation my achievement step by step

[Mini guide] Withered army training, after 3 days of waiting and preparations, it felt sooo good/rewarding! Explanation my achievement step by step(Edit: Reminder and re-structuring of the post info: The real aim of this mini dungeon is to get a score of 400+, you can get these chests only once! Tanks will get them faster!) http://imgur.com/a/uoQzk Short story, I went in this mini dungeon with the "normal quest" few days ago, and all my troop and myself died against "Leystalker Dro", a stealth dude who popped up in the middle of a pack of trash. TL; DR; Here are all the useful links from this guide: The real aim of this mini dungeon is to get a score of 400, nothing more, and you can do that by avoiding almost all bosses and farm the trash! These big chests you see in this screenshots are collectible only ONCE. Yo...

Exploring the oceans of the Broken Isles - Part 2

Exploring the oceans of the Broken Isles - Part 2Hey all, due to the really positive feedback about my last post containing my adventures under the water of 3 zones I decided to post my last album of photos that contain some the other photos I got while exploring the last of the zones. I have now traveled through every zone at least once. However, I absolutely have not found everything and there is always more to be discovered, just going through a zone for a second time I found countless things that I missed last the first time. I hope you enjoy both just the beauty of the underwater photos and how much effort blizzard put into a portion of the game that is so often ignored, along with some of the interesting things that I found. A lot ...

I think Fire Mages would feel more 'fiery' if Ice Barrier, Ice Floes, Ice Block and Frost Nova (and any more I missed) were renamed and minimally rethemed.

I think Fire Mages would feel more 'fiery' if Ice Barrier, Ice Floes, Ice Block and Frost Nova (and any more I missed) were renamed and minimally rethemed.For the most part, Fire Mage is a pretty simple rotation of a small number of spells, so I feel having an action bar's worth of frost-themed spells is especially noticeable. Even something as simple as palette-swapping all the blue to red could add a lot when many are calling this the "class fantasy" expansion, and would be probably be received better than Fire Mage's artifact weapon giving them three floating flaming orbs over their head, which many players find obtrusive and are asking for a way to hide. submitted by /u/MacGyver_Survivor [link] [comments]...

PSA: If a rare fails to drop a recipe for which they're the only source, submit a ticket

PSA: If a rare fails to drop a recipe for which they're the only source, submit a ticketI needed the Leybque Ribs recipe from Myonix in Suramar. Like any other rare, I get one shot at its "special loot", and after that, it's essentially treated like a normal mob with some extra health. Was I screwed? After killing Myonix 50+ times, I was sure convinced of that. So I opened a ticket for "loot drop problems" with a GM, explained the issue, and they mailed me the recipe. There was only one way of obtaining this particular recipe, as Nomi only gives the 2* and 3* versions of it, so it not dropping was almost certainly a bug. TLDR: if a rare is the only source of a recipe, and doesn't drop it, submit a ticket to get the recipe. submitted by ...
