    JP is faster but only because you can run dungeons as much as you want. Tournament is easier all around, but is going to take longer. I really wouldn't worry about the DK hierlooms except maybe the weapon. You don't need the gear, and while the xp bonus is nice it isn't going to save as much time as you think. If you have to get something, get the helm and clock from the guild vendor because their XP bonus carrier all the way to 85. The others stop at 80.

    I have the cloak and helm, I guess I'll just go for the 2H sword then level

    I did buy the str dps ones instead of tank pieces, because I thought I'd level as frost

    turns out nope tank dungeon queues all the way

    Could try and farm Champion's Seals from the Argent Tournament for the chest / shoulder.

    Remember that you don't need a weapon for a DK--Runeforging doesn't work on heirlooms.

    And it'd be bullshit to mail runeforged weapons to non-dks

    no, because transmog weapons only scale up to level 80

    it would also not be that difficult a thing to put a restriction on; you can't mail transmogged heirlooms either iirc

    I thought you can runeforge an heirloom weapon now and it just strips the runeforge when it's mailed out. It does that with the Shaman weapon imbueds at least.

    The weapon still scales better than anything you're going to get outside of a dungeon though.

    But if you're just going to level up exclusively from dungeons then the xp chest or something is probably a better idea.

    yes, but i can't imagine the DK rune would be a balance issue for leveling up to 85

    it would only be a problem if you had 85 competitive weapons somehow having DK enchants transferred over to non DK's, since the heirloom weapons would be so weak by comparison at that point

    I'll test the waters on runeforging an heirloom. I'm pretty sure it's an iLevel thing, though.

    IIRC, last time I leveled a DK, there were plenty of 2H quest rewards (in Northrend) that worked just fine, and some of the dungeon drops would last quite a while.

    e: Well I'll be danged, it looks like you can runeforge an heirloom now. I only went as far as seeing the castbar appear--I don't want to replace Crusader--but if the castbar appears then it's a valid application.

    Hmm

    I prefer the playstyle and aesthetic of the elemental shaman (55) over my mage (71), but I know if I get the shaman to 85 I'm going to be called out if I try to join raids besides LFR without a healing set and spec ready to go

    and I hate healing



    damn

    No way dude, maybe in Vanilla Shamans HAD to be healers, but nowadays it ain't even a thing.

    @Dys plays a DPS Shaman and we love him.

    I really like the more machine-gunny feel of the shaman, and I know once I get mastery at 80 the machinegunning will be more literal

    That and uh, god damn

    I'm wondering if those ascendant models are placeholders...

    Dragon/elementium armor and twilight's hammer emblems aren't exactly too shaman-y...

    So...keeping in touch loosely with the beta.

    I havent played seriously in about a year, cancelled account in January, with possibly some intention to at least play through the leveling experience of MoP...

    My main is a warlock. I'm not sure i like what im seeing but maybe its just because the info is disjointed.
    Making demo more tanky...not liking the idea but i never really played demo anyway.
    Giving warlocks rejuvination in the druid tradeoff...i do not like this at all. Warlocks are like the anti-healer, I dont want to be expected to use that spell on someone else, a warlocks UI is bad enough, try adding a healers ui on top of it.

    Also, the last few expansions have been somewhat dissapointing for locks...they implement some awesome ability then pull it the week before release, leaving us with barely anything new, fun and different in the expansion. So hows that looking now?

    Warlocks are getting probably the biggest overhaul of any class. The tanking thing is so that they can maybe offtank using a glyph, it's not going to be a core part of their gameplay.

  • That Dave FellaThat Dave Fella Registered User regular
    Also it's a beta, the symbiosis abilities will change. A lot of stuff will change.

    Maybe you should reserve judgement for when you've played it.

  • azith28azith28 Registered User regular
    Never said i was judging the whole expansion already, I'm generally a blizzard fanboy in terms of loving their games, even if my own class imo has sometimes gotten ignored.

    I saw far more elemental shamans than ones that would heal back in vanilla

    The earth shield era of shaman healing when it started was really something

    a lot of things for warlocks are pretty broken right now, so you can't really make a fair judgement even if you're in the beta

    my unfair judgement:
    Strangely, affliction is strangely pretty much exclusively a single target spec right now (ignoring the aoe drain life that is a talent), and I don't like it. It's really really wacky. Retuning the numbers on some of the spells might make some of spec make more sense, but I don't know what their plans are there.

    End on
