    Making a Dwarf character and running around with your eyes at crotch-level for the whole game? Not awesome.
    It's especially bad because all the Humans, Draenei, and Night Elves are male so you have a face full of balled up socks..

    Correct. But they've been hinting that there will be some other changes. I know a couple of priests that have been getting some use out of Holy Nova to compensate for the CoH changes. Which seems to make them giggle about their DPM.

    I don't see how they can really do that, I mean honestly healing is like tanking, you can't really reinvent the wheel.

    They didn't make a major tanking change? Did you do any tanking before AoE tanking became the norm?

    yeah, dunno what they want to do about healing. Can't go back to the old days, even though healer panic > boredom on the "fun" scale.

    Dunno what they've done to pallies, though, since I haven't paid attention to the class. For priests, seems like they tried ot nerf our mana regen, but then we just geared out of that problem fairly easily.

    Don't know about that -- they've done the whole "combo points" thing with Malygos/Occulus to great success it seems. Who says they couldn't implement that as the primary method of healing for a class?

    They changed it to make it easier to aoe tank, but as a bear I was swipe tanking in the bc, and for the most part tanking is largely unchanged. Tank has the most hps, ac, avoidance grabs mobs keeps them on him until dps kills them.

    I don't see what changes they are making to paladin healing. They gave them the ability to aoe heal a bit and then tuned it down to a smaller radius, their mana renew also got a bit of nerf. So I don't see what change they are doing to healing other than giving holy some abilities then taking them away.

    2.1 was that patch. And there was a surge then. That's right about when most people began to consider the idea acceptable. But I did some progression tanking in SSC before then. It was doable.

    That statue is in the Emerald Dragonshrine even when you're not dead, Ysera is apparently sitting on it.
    Supposedly, that statue model has been in the game forever, and can be found used in the original Emerald Dream instance (or whatever it was supposed to be) that can be found in the game files, though not implemented (like Stormwind Vault and Azshara Crater).

    Paladins:

    What changes are you speaking about? Divine Plea? The only change that really had was our PvP healing and 5-man healing. You need to be a bit more careful when you use it...

    The actual mechanic for Paladins remains the same. All we did was change spells, and the stat we stack. We used to stack +Crit and spam Flash of Light. We now stack +Intel and spam Holy Light. Crit is still good, but pushing into the 26-30k mana pool range basically puts you into an endless Holy light loop. You don't stop casting, you don't stop rotating your cooldowns. It's sloppy as all hell, but you don't really argue with a continuous string of 1.6-1.7sec Holy Lights landing for 9-10k, and critting for well over 14k-15k...

    It may not affect you much if you raid, but my wife is trying to heal 5 man heroics now and the recent nerfs are kind of annoying, if only because pallys weren't the best aoe healers to beginn with and recent changes made it worse.

    Especially with all wotlk dungeons tending to have a splash or aoe damage of some sort. It also doesn't help that no one tends to have good gear guides that dont require heroics or any good paladin guides to healing that isn't raid healing.

    I'm not saying its not possible, just saying there are fights that have AOE damage still and its a lack for paladins. And there just don't seem to be a lot of places to go for guides to gear a paladin like there was for a tank, or hell even gear. I can make a purple defense shield but no healing equivelent as a blacksmith.

    DK boards are swarming with advice but the pally boards seem to address tanking and ret and healing I guess you are just supposed to know. Where to go to learn?

    It sounds like you have two problems. First is that your groups tend to be pug happy. You can get good pugs. But you can also win the lottery. Your second problem is that you're a hair behind the gearing curve. So don't freak out about it.

    AN seems to be one of the harder heroics out there. Wiped a couple times on Anub last time I went there. I think the big thing is to focus fire those venomspitters that come out on the 1st and 3rd submerges. I think they're UD, so a pally could hypothetically fear one, leaving one to be killed first, maybe. Their poison aoe spray is really annoying, especially if you can't cleanse it. Think we had a dps shammy in my group, so he dropped the poison cleansing totem and NR Totem when the venomspitters came down.

    Edit: Oh yeah, I was on my priest and was supposed to shackle them. But they can't be targetted until they enter the arena, whereupon they start spewing out poison and stuff. So turn undead might work pretty well, better then shackle did(n't).

    Well, it doesn't help that you're starting out with some of the harder heroics- until you have quite a few epics, Azjol'nerub and Halls of Lightning are really hard even if you know exactly what you're doing.

    Stick to the easier ones until then.

    I think the aforementioned people in my guild are just being jerks. The idea is not to automatically believe everything you read, that people on EJ make mistakes in math and have differences of opinion, and not everyone who posts there is an expert, so you have to view what you read through the window of your own personal experience with the class/spec as well. Someone blindly following EJ is better than someone playing pick-a-random-talent-point but not as good as someone who reads EJ and makes his or her own decisions using that information.

    It's probably just failure syndrome at this point. I haven't succeeded in the past which makes me fear for succeeding in the future. Honestly I haven't completed a heroic at this point I just dinged 80 on friday of last week and the best I've gotten down were regulars. It's eternally frustrating because of my server its hard to find people on my play schedule, but I don't want to leave my good friend on the server.

    I don't think its gear based though at least not for me as a tank.

    Most of us who say everything is easy have been running this shit constantly since like November 20th. It wasn't easy for us those first few times either, just... it changes quickly with time and purpz.

    But how am I supposed to get those if I can't kill the guys? It's like a job saying you need experience to get it, but you can't get experience if you can't get a job. Like last night there was a group looking for a tank for an instance but you had to link them the achievement from beating it before they'd invite you.

    Well, it doesn't help that you're starting out with some of the harder heroics- until you have quite a few epics, Azjol'nerub and Halls of Lightning are really hard even if you know exactly what you're doing.

    Stick to the easier ones until then.

    My problem is I tried Nexus and got taken out and we got smoked on the first boss in UK, though this was before my wife realized her down ranking was screwing her over. I still worry about going back, I hate losing, I hate failing.

    And my guild is fairly small because it was one of the few ones that have more people on for pst times on my shitty central server.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    I think the aforementioned people in my guild are just being jerks. The idea is not to automatically believe everything you read, that people on EJ make mistakes in math and have differences of opinion, and not everyone who posts there is an expert, so you have to view what you read through the window of your own personal experience with the class/spec as well. Someone blindly following EJ is better than someone playing pick-a-random-talent-point but not as good as someone who reads EJ and makes his or her own decisions using that information.

    There seems to be a backlash against EJ. I don't mind someone disputing info from there but give me something better then "Well it's all situational" or "well I do it this way and my DPS is now better". Sure, not everything on EJ is gospel but at least be ready to prove your damn assertions.

    tanks have it hardest, because they really have to reach a specific gear point before they can even think about trying to tank an easy heroic. I just got my warrior to 80, and even after spending a bunch of gold and frozen orbs, he's still on the squishier side of tanking. In theory, you'd be able to run regular instances for those drops to gear up for heroics, but since nobody really seems to run regulars (and even if you did, there's no guarantee of any drops, I'm looking at you, seal of the pantheon), it can be hard to get those last few pieces you need to reach the def cap.

    Whereas dps and healers can kind of squeeze in even if they have a green or three, simply because there is not a specific cap for them.
