    every time Argus reaches the scripted wipe part of his fight I ask Khadgar for his advice, gets a good laugh when he decides "Death is certain."

    I am curious to hear their rationale for increasing emphasis on auto-attacks. I thought it was a pretty widely held belief that auto-attacks are boring compared to the visceral feedback of using a skill. Just think of how Warriors used to be in vanilla.

    Hmm, finally some good DH changes

    The havoc aoe stun is actually a stun again, and we get a purge that gives resources when it’s used to remove a buff. I see that being very useful as vengeance.

    I got the fucking Khadgar in a ball from Kirin Tor emissary. The only prize I cared about.

    Now Khadgar can stay with me in BFA!

    This is the first time I've heard of this. Looking at the Wowhead page, I bust out laughing at the "Your soundcard works perfectly" response. Took me right back to trying to configure War2 DOS on a Win95 machine way back in the day. I can still hear that footman in my mind.

    Edit: YouTube has an example:

    I wonder if I'll enjoy tanking if I ever get past the anxiety of it, or if I should just stick to healing?

    I like healing in part because I can catch a breather from time to time--it may not be optimal to sit on a GCD, but it's not a significant failure of my role the way it is as a DPS. I mostly spend my extra GCDs on damage and try to play optimally, but it's a perception thing. It's also satisfying to feel like I can cover most weaknesses in a group if I get good enough at healing.

    I've never been good enough at tanking to know how I'll feel about it, so it's hard to commit to pushing through the anxiety of being the front man, where my mistakes are super obvious (loose add, died to tankbuster, positioned poorly and now everyone is standing in fire if they want to dps, etc).

    Vengeance is pretty flooded with pain in BFA, so I'm not sure that part will be useful, but a 10 sec CD purge will be very strong. Blood DK has had it for a while. The runic power is much more useful for a BDK than a VDH, but the dispel itself is incredible.

    However, I actually am laughing my head off at the latest Azerite powers.
    NEW Bones of the Damned Marrowrend has a chance to grant an extra charge of Bone Shield. Bone Shield increases your Armor by 39.
    NEW Eternal Rune Weapon Dancing Rune Weapon grants you 39 Strength, and each rune spent increases its duration by 1.0 sec, up to a maximum of 5 sec.

    I love how they say "NEW" Next to these, like they aren't just artifact traits returned as Azerite traits.

    We're basically in for another 2 years of Legion class design. Not that that's a bad thing, but after how heavily they pruned Legion traits it's funny to see how they are like "oh yeah I guess these all should stay huh"

    Is tiring, but is rewarding on it's own way. I had a lot of fun tanking with my Monk.

    That said, the way that...not going to say most, but a significant number of tanks decide to deal with the extra criticism is to turn into huge bossy assholes, which I find offputting.

  • DhalphirDhalphir don't you open that trapdoor you're a fool if you dareRegistered User regular
    To be honest, tanking is a lot easier than DPS. Your mistakes can be more noticeable if they're bad ones, since a catastrophic tank mistake usually leads to a dead group while a catastrophic DPS mistake leads to just a dead DPS, but it's not as if missing a single bit of mitigation is going to kill you.

    Tanking is very similar to healing in that you can catch a breather pretty regularly, especially during raid encounters.

    what they should do is make an AH interface better than the current, inadequate-for-a-decade pile of shit we have now

    most of the current issues with it could be solved really easily, without resorting to anything as complicated as auctioneer/TSM or similar

    Im more or less hoping i can cash in at the beginning of the expansion with herbs and the inscription contracts that let you get rep for world quests. Tomes will probably be less important since most talent trees have less actual choices than they do on live.

    Tanking might be most of the time mechanically easier to play well, but it's also got much greater pressure in that if you fuck up your DPS rotation you do a little bit less damage, while if you fuck up your tanking you die, and then everyone else dies.

    also whenever anything goes wrong it's apparently always the tank's fault in rando groups

    To be fair, there's lots of situations where "doing a little bit less damage" means the raid dies, but it's more invisible than a tank's errors

    like my personal Tank Experience is focusing hard and being constantly on edge to remember the taunt timing and any special "mitigate this move or die" or repositioning mechanics, versus the DPS experience of <smooth jazz>

    Tanking is always this really weird wild ride. At the beginning of expansions you just get rocked and feel really weak, then you get gear and even though you might take a huge hit every now and then, your ability to self heal or just mitigate the vast majority of things is so high that you never really feel like you're in danger unless you're doing the highest difficulty content. Like right now I can just go blood on my DK and only change a couple pieces of gear and can tank normal no problem if we can't find a tank. I'm not a good tank by any means, but I mitigate and heal enough that so long as i can press taunt when the other tank has X debuff stacks the boss will die. Tanking M+ hardly matters because you just get everything pointed at you and grouped up and the dps will just stun + burst everything down.

    The thing I find difficult about healing is trying to keep an eye on your surroundings and your party's health at the same time. The one person I most frequently forget to heal is myself.

    But I don't use any mods or addons or anything so that could just be the inherent shittiness of the base UI.

    I suggest going into the interface options and checking the box that says "use raid style party frames". It's much easier to just keep track of 5 boxes than the weird default party frames. Then so long as you keep all 5 topped off you'll also be keeping yourself healed. Just give everything a glance when you're casting stuff with an actual cast time. DBM can also help by just beeping at you when mechanics are firing off.

    Yeah as a healer in a group setting I'd frequently forget to heal myself or mistarget and only heal myself. Err I mean line of sight prevented me from healing you.

    This is why grid/clique was the light for me, in my brief stint as a healer. If yours is just another lifebar, you're less likely to forget to heal yourself.

    I've been using custom Pitbull layouts and mouseover macros to heal since Wrath.

    I'm just another lifebar in the pack, but tanks are represented both in the pack and in separate bars near the center of my screen.

    Yeah I heal using clique and this is very true.

    I have my party frames placed in the lower part of my screen, just to the left of the middle. Basically right next to/below my characters feet (depending on zoom level).
    Its perfect for being able to watch my character's position and also see all party health / debuffs.

    Oh god, my MMORPG friends restarted their wow accounts, guess I need to too.

    So, I was thinking of race changing my Night Elf Hunter to a Void Elf. BUT, he's 110, and I want to get the Heritage armor on him.

    Can I unlock the Heritage armor on a different Void Elf and use the appearance on a race changed Void Elf?

    Yes, pretty sure you only need to unlock it on one Velf, but you can only use the transmog on Velf characters.

    I levelled a new void elf hunter to 110, then race changed my pre-existing created day one hunter into a void elf. Will do the same for a lightforged probably, since both can be hunters and it saves gold on heirlooms.
