Very useful feedback:
"Hey, we did some math here and based on talents, gear and what we know about gems and enchants, it looks like paladins can't be uncrittable by Naxx. Is this intended?"
Less useful feedback:
"Warrior mitigation has been better than paladin mitigation for the last 4 patches. Why doesn't Blizzard fix that? I'm starting to think they won't."
Not terribly useful feedback:
"Because paladins can't be uncrittable by Naxx, it's clear Blizzard has no design for the class and doesn't understand how paladins work. We'll never get to tank anything. Meanwhile, warriors have the most awesome ability that we are denied out of spite."
Ghostcrawler fills the coffee mug with gin:
"I've waited for 16 months for a blue response to my demand for an explanation of why paladins don't work the way I think they should. And yet on my 35-page dissertation on why this one quest in Eastern Plaguelands would be so easy for my class if you made all of the 28 changes I require, and which I bump every day for great justice, I finally got a blue poster who made a poor attempt at humor and it Greatly Offended me. Now I'm going to troll and reroll because if I'm miserable I want everyone else to be too."
Okay, clearly this has caused an outrage beyond what we expected. The designers called an emergency meeting and while we discovered that it's too late to back out this poorly-conceived implementation, we are exploring a couple of options for all you non-casuals out there:
-- A clam-stacking trinket. You have to equip it like your riding crop.
-- In addition to cold-weather-flying, you can learn clam-stacking in Dalaran.
-- A long attunement that involves trips to LBRS for Horde and BRD for Alliance.
-- Tediously crafting a clam-stacking gear set that will be useful for certain encounters.
-- An Achievement reward for collecting 20,000 clams to be titled "How do you like DEM clams?"
-- A bonus for reaching Exalted with Timbermaw Hold AND Wintersaber Trainers.
-- Beating Captain Skyshatter. At level 60. With a bad ping. In the rain.
-- The clam book has a 0.02% drop rate on Dead Man's Pass or Blade's Edge ogres.
-- Collecting "Clam Scraps" from AV that you feed to the NPCs in order to summon Oystolar the Mollusc Lord in the Field of Strife.
-- Getting 100 other players to sign your clam charter.
-- Collecting 1,000,000 linen from Ragefire Chasm in order to open the Clams of Ahn'Qiraj.
-- Kind of like paid character transfers, but for clam-stacking.
-- You can respec to clam-stacking in between respecing for raids and Arenas.
-- A buggy clam-stacking mod that you will need to update after each and every patch.
-- You see, there's this clam-stacking book in Dire Maul as a rare drop. You get the book, do all sorts of crazy stuff that ends up with the book being breathed on by Mutanus the Devourer.
-- A clam book lying in plain sight in the Barrens next to Mankirk's wife.
Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.
