    I've gotten none of the mounts yet. And the mage tower stuff is hard. I can't get past phase two in the arms one reliably. I can't never see where the archmage teleports and it's so annoying

    The good news about arcanist manasaber is you just have to do a questline, esp. now that nightfallen rep is not a requirement. The bad news is that even without the rep requirement, quest line is LONG. And there are still, "stop and do some missions" or "do 10 world quests to continue" BS occasionally.

    I have been on with6 travel for two of the weeks Argus has been out so i feel like i still have a lot to get done
    - get the last two rares i haven't looked yet
    - get that chest achievement
    - farm another 1600 eyes so for the toy and pet
    - get more mounts/pets. So far have 2 colors of Blistermaw, 1 flyer mount, one flyer pet
    - get all invasion bosses remaining
    - get characters other than my main through the storyline

    Then back to leveling alts in between once a week raid.

    Man, I'm already sick of Argus. At this point, I'm not even sure how they are gonna keep us excited for the new raid + dead time until the next expac. I'm sure I'm just a little over it all after being in since the beginning, but I'm not sure how they expect to retain subs.

    The same way they always do. Excitement for the next expansion. Which is pretty much guaranteed to be announced almost at the exact same time the new raid comes out.

    Except this time there might be some post raid story put out as a small patch, and then before you know it there is the expansion prepatch where some fun is infused before the expansion hits.

    But mostly hype. Blizzcon is soon and its going to be hype central for WoW.

    Tomorrow KJ all day, to see if we can finally get that out of the way.

    KJ's pretty tough, although we got him in about the same number of pulls as we got Fallen Avatar. If you can get everyone in your raid to use a Vantus Rune it helps a lot, 3% increased damage/healing and 1.5% less damage taken definitely makes a difference.

    man over in the SE++ guild I don't remember how many attempts heroic avatar took us, not more than 30 I think, but it took us something like 120 or 130 attempts on heroic KJ before our first kill, which was the week before 7.3 dropped. I think that's a record for our guild.

    I'm rather fond of Legion really. Its the first expac where I did some actual raiding (Heroic EM, and normal Nighthold) for the Balance of power quest (Which I REALLY hope they make an account wide achieve soon, redoing it was killing me for awhile. Even though NH id easier now, it can still feel like a slog). And i'm gonna have to raid Antorus if I want my pally to be called the Lightbringer. (and what pally toon wouldn't want that name?)

    Not such luck. Mainly for having to PuG, got a 6% try wasted because the pug stood on the middle and there was a huge patch on p3, and the rest was a series of dumb Armaggedon wipes.

    Next week is another go I guess.

    They finally nerfed the shadow priest T21 on the PTR. I never even got around to giving it a try. In all honesty though, it is still extremely generous. They basically removed the dots from the crit bonus so you couldn't start getting the insane insanity gen from the talent. Now you just get super insane burst damage deep into void form.

    Right around the time I started running ToS with my guild was when they picked up after like a month of hiatus due to injuries and travel. They'd been working on Avatar before and basically started over from scratch.

    I thought sisters was our 100 wipe boss, but apparently we're just shy of 80 wipes on them. I'm guessing Mistress will be the boss to hit the big 100.

    absolutely 0% chance that this job posting would be for the next xpac

    probably not even the one after IMO

    It's a brand new RTS IP now that StarCraft is dumb and WarCraft is an MMO.

  • Warlock82Warlock82 Never pet a burning dog Registered User regular
    Well specifically it's a mobile game (the listing asks for mobile development experience). I'm assuming some kind of bite sized RTS, most likely using an existing franchise. I'm just not sure how fun that would actually be

    Hey @PROX who would be most effective to tag on twitter to talk about the Beast Mastery T21 4 piece bonus? It's so weak that sims and testing have staying in 4 piece T20 outperforming it until you can get Mythic T21, so it could use a buff or a rework.

    Also SV's T21 2 piece and 4 piece are both really weird? Like, the optimal rotation for SV right now never hits Raptor Strike.

    Yeah, that was something that always kind of bugged me about my BElf Paladin girl back when I was playing. Kinda wished the weapons scaled more reasonably (not realistic, just not quite so crazy). I really liked how she looked with the polearm you got for a class quest at Level 20, and wished there were more options like that.

    They only increased the size like that a couple patches ago, their weapons have always been tiny before that.

    Huh? I could've sworn there were a bunch of high level 2H weapons that looked crazy out-sized for BE's back when I was playing one (BC-Cataclysm).

    Edit: Now that you mention it I do remember some 2H Swords looking more like 1H's though... Hrm. Maybe I'm conflating a character of another race?

    I got the BM boots and a mount from an Army of Light rep box last night. I would describe that as a pretty good rep box.

    They used to be for blood elves then in one of the patches in legion they "fixed it"

    I opened a nightfallen Cache and got the Magic carpet mount.

    So finally the caches are starting to piss trickle their rewards to me. That leaves 6 more mounts and two toys.

    Yeah, that tends to happen, but ToS's attrition rates are brutal. Too much "one person screws up and is a wipe" mechanics IMO.

    It's even worse on Mythic. Kil'jaeden is probably the worst example, as I think a lot of his mechanics shouldn't have shown up on Heroic.

    So eu and na both lose out to aipac teams. And then a 3-0 is stopped by some weird rez glitch that gifted team marsy life... hinky.

    turns out the bug that aided team marsy has to do with the observer getting aggro and preventing the group from rezzing, so directly a bug caused by someone in the wow staff that benefited the eventual winners. Majorly hinky.

    Especially since I don't believe that happened at any other time in the competition.

    So, the dev team had an interview on Forbes about the M+ Invitational. Important bit:
    Q: What changes are still to come?

    Morgan Day: Another thing that we are looking into fixing -- maybe not so much as a result of MDI, but it definitely put it under a microscope -- was combat [resurrections] and how they work in mythic plus. We have a system for combat rezzes in raids that keeps track of how many people you have, and almost is like a shared resource in raids.

    We discussed, hey, we’ve already got that solution in raids, is this something that we should explore for our mythic plus dungeons? Because, as you saw, there’s a lot of teams that will bring three or four or -- I think I saw a team in the group that all five members had a combat rez. That is so much powerful utility.

    We’ve fixed this in raids. Maybe we should fix this in dungeons as well. That’s a thing we’re talking about potentially fixing, obviously not for this weekend, but maybe, if we do another MDI, for the next one we’ll try to get that fixed for that.

    Yeah, that's a big issue isn't it? Problem is, given that Blizz dev team still thinks that insane damage is the way to make things challenging (see: the Seat +17 on the Invitational), then when they remove battle rezes, just like in Tomb, the meta will move straight to classes with inmunities in order to deal with it.

    3cl1ps3Preacher

    immunities are mostly way less flexible though

    and also yeah, insane damage is mostly how you make stuff difficult
