    The reason I am looking forward to 1.3.1 is after getting called out for reporting WAAAAGH was still broken in 1.3 by the lead QA someone told him to stop being a dick. Sadly the post was lost when they wiped the 1.3 test boards. Anyway he responded by saying WAAAAGH would be pushed to a later patch due to it requiring coder time to fix.

    Which means, hopefully, they will finally be able to fix WAAAGH so that it benefits from its own debuff. Instead of currently "remove debuff, do damage, apply debuff" causing everyone else to get the benefit.

    Sadly however noone has posted on the blorc forums, or really acknowledged blorc issues.

    If I was kidnapped, woke up in a lab, told they were going to replace my vocal cords with those of Tony Jay, and lock me in a sound booth until the day I die I would look those bastards right in the eye and say "Alright you sons of bitches lets do this. This one is for the children."

    [strike]So, I'm an old subscriber, looking to give the game another go. I've been inactive for more than 60 days; last time I played was around Christmas.

    Anyone feel like hooking me up with that trial?[/strike]

    EDIT: Got it. Thanks, Detharin.

    People who bitch about the Live Event are being retarded. The top complaint about it seems to be that Mythic is one large entity that is only capable of doing one thing at a time. And that the one thing was creating the Live Event and not focusing on the class balance and a blah blah bloo bloo.

    Not like the fucking event is mandatory and it's not like the people trying to do it are unkillable.

    Catapaults don't work like that. And yes, I know they do it in that Kevin Costner Robin Hood movie. And in Jabberwocky.

    Siege towers, though, would be very, very useful. Especially since once defense reaches a critical mass, you simply can't get through.

    I think what would be really cool if they didn't make the lord's room in a keep really retarded. I don't understand why an army has to march up a tiny ramp that's in aggro range of the keep lord and guards, but also far enough away that it resets every time it looks at someone on the ramp. Plus it becomes pure luck if you actually make it up the ramp and not run off the railing-less as you chug along at 2 frames per second, trying to push your way through people that for some reason think it's a better idea to stand on the ramp in a concentrated group instead of just wiggling past the two tanks at the top.

    Got a stupid question for you guys, is there a way to update the client for this game without having an active account?
    I recently received a card for this game, and thought I would come back for a bit. Seeing as how it's on a card, my subscription time is limited and I'd prefer to spend as little as possible of it watching a yellow bar fill up.

    Download the free trial, sign up under an assumed name, then activate your real account would be my best guess.

    You know what I want?

    Remove rams, catapults, etc. from vendors.

    Put in a new trade skill for constructing siege weapons.

    Make it so if you have something like 2-4 siegecrafters (I'm not an expert on balance, but you should need more than one) they can work together to construct a siege tower or ladder or something.

    They were the same servers as last time, but they now allow more than one destination servers as opposed a fixed transfer from last time.

    But yeah, I know it's easy to get confused at this kind of thing.

    Weird I thought there were only 3 source servers for the last set of transfers. I guess it's not so bad then.

    shouldn't you be knocking us up a new thread cynic? :p

    finally gave up any pretence of dps on my BG and re-specced anguish/ loathing. the difference is stupifying. i'm now complicit in the deaths of endless healers with my pet mdps and soul killer spam and having no offensive moves worth speaking of i just sit on 100 hate, meaning terrifying foe gives me 1k toughness (not bad for a 37) and FoF drops my chance to be crit by a hefty 45%. all i need is 1 competent healer in group and i'm night unkillable. as an added bonus at 40 i'll be up the tactic which gives me +disrupt based on hate, meaning i'll be rolling with approx 45% most of the time. so much vengence to exact on BWs, so much vengence...

    I told you!

    In other news - there might be something of interest on the Herald today. I say might because they've been saying that for a few days now.

    Also - the stuff I wrote that was picked apart by Radish had nothing to do with the Live Event - I was talking about other changes in the pipeline (though what we've tested of the Live Event, it's fun stuff).

    Seriously. I almost want to resub and roll a BG now after looking at their trees more. It's like all the complainers want to live forever and do mad DEEPS at the same time or something.

    So how does the shaman fare these days?

    I had a squig herder back when I last played. I enjoyed the class, but it was so full of bugs that maintaining a list of them, in hopes of getting them addressed, just sort of became depressing and I stopped playing.

    I really liked the SH, but I'm not sure I want to level one again.

    Squig Herders (in the right hands) can basically be godmode. Plus, standing inside your squig so you can't be targeted? You're a complete asshole. :P

    With the changes to lifetap spells and whatnot in 1.3.0B, Shamans can do very well for themselves.

    I have a level 10 squiggy that runs around in Squig Armor constantly suckering Order into thinking I'm a foolish Squig Herder who wants to hand out free renown.

    See I made some purple armor talismans so my armor rating is 1056 with my gas squig out. That gives me more armor than most tanks my level. I run around soloing Warrior Priests at the end of T1 because their self heal attacks aren't hitting me hard enough to keep them alive through my DPS :D

    I do wish I had more than two abilities to use in Squig Armor but oh well it's still hilariously fun :P

    Yeah, BGs arnt useless as long as they're the only target. The problem comes in when a BG is ignored and can't build enough hate to be worthwhile as a debuffer to make the targets focus on them.

    A tank being ignored is a tank reducing everybodies damage by 30%!

    Yay!

    That's at least 15 seconds of free hate building up, because shit damn is that worth it. You are a fool if you don't think 30% is worth it.
