    Are you disagreeing that you need more buttons on your bar or are you saying that we have enough to work with already?

    I feel like I have plenty of buttons keybound on my prot warrior already. I suppose one or two more wouldn't kill me.

    You can get by with adding one binding, if you are really hurting for space. You can click rend (HILARIOUS) since you only need to apply it once during a fight, and you can use one binding for HS/Cleave and just interchange which one you need as the situation applies.

    Yes indeed, I'll have to click rend. It's worth it to scream BLOOD AND THUNDER everytime I TC though.

    This is all you need to know about the patch.

    Shaman's and DK's are going to two-shot everything.

    deal with it.

    I really hope bear tanking will magically be fun now. bear tank is the facerollingest class of all, in a game of facerolling.


    ...soo, after someone's RankWatch alerted me to the fact that my newly 80'd shaman was using a downranked spell, I thanked him and promptly downloaded the addon to make sure it never happened again, and to do a public service to everyone around me.

    oh, the horror! Ignorance is bliss... get this addon and you will find that like 1 in 4 players use downranked versions of their core abilities... even people with 5000 gearscore... why god why...

    Again, luckily for you, you can drop this mod after tonight, because it will be useless!


    Regarding the two-shotting: Shamans because of Lava Lash apparently being ridiculous instead of a joke, but DKs why? When I was on Beta last night, nothing seemed to be hitting ridiculously hard for my DK... of course, I only tried Blood and Unholy. Unholy does seem fun, I may go back to that with my Orc...

    God more buttons for my prot warrior, just what I always wanted.

    I am so excited about the warlock stuff it's ridiculous. No more shards! A reasonable amount of bag space! Evocation! I do wonder what size bag the 32 slot soul bag turns into, though. I wonder if I should log on and make like three or four more of them.

    PvE balance should be doable, except for a couple of classes that might still be fucked (Kitty Druids for instance)

    PvP will be totally, 100% fucked up. But that's expected. It happened last expansion too. It's why the Arena Season is now over.

    I'm guessing it'll go Biggest shard bag -> Biggest Bag

    Not Enhancement.

    Most of our stuff hits for a lot less now honestly, it's just that Lava Lash now hits like a truck. But it's nowhere near two-shotting.

    Down to only needing 32 more Gordok Shackle Keys to be exalted with all four goblin cities, which will also bring me up to 40 exalted reputations for the achievement/title.
    Provided tomorrow's patch doesn't do anything to really screw me over like remove Knot Thimblejack or something, I should have it within a few days to a week (unless the Zandalar Tribe goes poof tomorrow instead of 4.0.3 in which case I'll need to go farm Sha'tar rep or something).

    Also as a service to my guild (and because I have a Moll-E and can only hold a single ogre suit at a time), all the regular members are receiving a mail to explain some of the new systems with a free ogre suit attached to help them cope with all the change. Got like 2k goblin rep from making those suits and still got 40 more tannin in my bank (though I'm out of rugged leather now).

    What's the big deal about prot warriors and their buttons?

    Here's my layout, roughly...

    Mouse Wheel Down: Heroic Strike, Mouse Wheel Up: Cleave

    Shift Mouse Wheel Down: Shield Block, Shift Mouse Wheel Up: Spell Reflect, Shift Middle Mouse Button: Shield Wall

    Tab: Charge, Shift Tab: Intercept, Shift MB4: Intervene

    1: Rend, 2: Thunder Clap, 3: Shockwave

    Shift 1: Slam (unused), Shift 2: Mocking Blow

    Q: Devestate, Shift Q: Revenge, E: Shield Slam, Shift E: Heroic Blow, Shift D : Disarm

    C: Concussion Blow, and Shift W: Shield Bash

    Vigilance, Last Stand, Frenzied Regen, Berserker Rage, and Every Man For Himself are all click abilities

    F: Taunt, Shift F: Challenging Shout

    Jesus we prot warriors have a lot of buttons.

    well, there's reason #1 you have some spare buttons.

    also you have some shift reaches there that I don't really like, although that's preference I guess. I personally don't like using mousewheel directions either.

    There was a stretch of the warrior thread a while ago that had lots of people listing their prot binds

    Nothing about the physical world is changing with 4.0.1. It'll be gone by 4.0.3 though.

    I'd like to know if the system that is supposed to put a balance on players for WG is going to be in 4.0.1 though; as I never bothered with the PTR.

    People are going crazy on Khaz'goroth buying bijous and polymorph turtles and stuff, so they must be under the impression that it's going away tomorrow.

    I think it's a benefit at some of the skill breakpoints(for gathering), like maybe journeyman -> artisan, so that the orange herbs/mines fail less often, or so when you're in a zone that has herbs/mines that straddle journeyman and artisan, you can gather the higher level ones until you have enough skill to train up to the next level.

    Yup.

    You gain skillups as if you had the base amount of points, but can learn things that are up to the bonus level.

    I was being sarcastic when I commented on not using a lot of buttons.

    I don't use the default ui, so the bar that I click is near the center of my screen. Those few abilities I do click are situational, I can see them coming and flick the mouse cursor appropriately. I rarely need to quickly hit them.

    I use my thumb button to target, and I'm a full grown man, so there aren't any shift reaches. I mean it's as easy to hit all of the buttons while holding shift as it is to hit them normally. If I need to move but am using my middle finger for something other than W, I just depress the middle mouse button to move forward.

    Holding shift adds no complexity whatsoever.

    Really, what do you have tiny hands? or a huge keyboard?

    Also, thanks for suggesting a thread, but I'm OK with what I got at this point changing it wouldn't help me at all. I was just typing out all of the buttons we use.
