We attempted the Mech....wow. We got destroyed hard by the first boss. Repeatedly. It went very smoothly up until him. I am not sure if it's our gear, or that we just suck, but we are having quite a bit of trouble with the Tempest Keep bosses.

Tempest Keep while very nice visually, can suck my balls.

Mech's first boss is definitely the hardest one in Mech.  It's not that it's so hard, but but damage is going everywhere in that fight.  A priest using PoM when needed really saves the day.  Positioning also helps a ton too.

Personally I really hate Arcatraz.  I've only gone in twice and I'd like to keep it that way as long as possible.  I only made it to the final boss once, and since I was the only healer, it didn't work out so well.  I got randomly Mind flay stunned three times in a row and that pretty much killed us without a backup healer.  We didn't get anymore attempts in after that because this was back when things respawned like mad.  The last fight is fun though.  I heard a pretty sweet strat for him the other day that I'd like to try out someday.

I transferred my priest to a different server the other day.  We'll see how this goes.  My last server was rather dull and boring.  This one is a pretty full server and just hearthing to Shatt lags my PC like no other.

Oh.. and this came from the server I just transferred away from.  I remember all the threads in our forums about this.  I know it got spread around on different wow forums but i'll link it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet:

I'm definitely going to Gameshark this one. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: level-building does not constitute gameplay.

I never felt I had to level build at all until one of the last few dungeons.  I didn't fight any more enemies than I had to to finish the dungeon.

Like I said earlier, if it concerns anyone, you can buy Embroidered Tippets somewhere around mid-game to compensate if you're feeling "low leveled".

i can deal with needing to spend points to get access to new weapons,armor and magic/skills but accessories? come on now. another problem with this game is it indirectly punishes you for not exlporing or doing sidequests. if you just go from point A to point B without at least exploring you will find yourself quickly underleveled. i tried to force myself through it for the story but i couldnt do it anymore. when i was stopped i just died at some zombie dragon at a lighthouse.

I always felt license points were quite abundant.  

Zombie dragon?  i thought he was easy, but it depends on how many sidequests you have done because at that point your gear and spell arsenal can be vastly different if you have done them (and I have).

Honestly there is a FF12 "ez moad" if people want to use it.  While fighting pretty much anything except a hunt or boss, have your party equipped with Embroidered Tippets which double the xp you gain.  This makes skipping areas very possible.  I found it pretty easy to power level your way up in a rather small amount of time with those accessories on.  Also between the three quickening charges on your main characters to triple their MP, I had one of my characters equip a Nihopalaoa and had them pick up all the remedy lores on the license board.  This made some fights a hell of a lot easier because a single remedy could inflict every status ailment on an enemy as long as they aren't immune to that particular ailment.

Quote from: "Dincrest"
I'm probably one of the few who really likes FF12's music. Sure the music does not stand up well on its own and I wouldn't buy the soundtrack, but within the context of the game, it's great. It adds the right amount of atmosphere without overpowering anything, like too much salt on french fries. Again, I could spend all day in Rabanastre, because not only is it an awesome town visually, but that town's theme is killer.

I wouldn't say I really liked the music, but I thought it was pretty good as well.  I enjoyed listening to most tracks and nothing really bothered me.  The music felt like it fit.

I'm in the second to last dungeon and the only thing I can say I am disappointed with is the story.  I heard it picks up towards the ending so I'm hoping for that.  It just feels like (not really a spoiler but ill put it in a code just in case)
the world is left unexplored.  Rozarria?  We talked to one dude with a European accent from there.  We didn't even step foot in the place.  Very disappointing.

I also feel that too little has happened in the game's span.  The game is almost over yet I don't feel it should be.

Lol, one of my guildies who's been in the guild since before I got there (like a year and 3 months ago) got a perma ban for exploiting the economy or some such BS without a warning for whatever random GM noob decided something was an issue.  GG.

Lemme guess... Arcatraz key?

Hmm, what do you mean exactly?  

There is/was a bug that would allow you to throw away your arcatraz key and the quest giver would give you a new key and the gold reward over and over again.

my guild had a meltdown.  fucking gay guild leader ftl.  the guild kinda reformed and they told me they are trying to recruit the guy who fucked us over and just disbanded the guild over a really stupid issue (tank server transferred).  doubt ill join them but i dont have many other choices since there's not many other guilds on the server that have decent members.  the ones i do like are past karazhan already so i'm not even going to waste my time trying to get in. might find a new server and transfer my character.  the horde on our server suck.

God forbid they nerf paladins.
2557  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / World of Warcraft OH MY GOD CURRENT EVENTS THREAD on: February 27, 2007, 05:53:08 PM
I'm kinda happy patch didn't hit today.  Priest nerf is a fucking slap in the face.  Not only are we second rate healers (and have been for awhile), now we'll get shot down so much easier in arena battles unless your group is good enough to try and keep you alive.  People say "well it's OP"  Well, I've heard the argument over and over that pvp and pve balancing is not focused on 1v1.

I did 5v5 arena last night and honestly with my stamina gear on, I don't see how I could ever hope to stay alive longer than 5-10 seconds now. I'd say out of the 15 or so games we played, I'd say a good 12 of them had 2+ people dedicated to taking me down ASAP.  Paladins have plate and their bubble yet they can't give us this?  Hell I wouldn't mind a cooldown, but 20 seconds is excessive.

Thoughts on this / upcoming patch?

edit:  I also find it odd that they are just now nerfing paladins.  It would have seemed more logical to do it when only alliance had them.  I don't know what goes through their minds.  

Also the warrior buffs are well needed.  I'm glad to see it.  Now we'll just have to see how much aggro thunderclap will cause.

Druid nerf was needed to some extent.  Their DPS in bear form is ridiculous.  I've seen some guilds post DPS charts where their druid tanked curator and still hit #1 on the DPS charts.  Honestly I'd rather just see warriors get buffed and druids less nerfed.

I've been 70 for awhile on my priest.  I've been mainly rep grinding to try and get better gear.  I'm about 2 bars away from getting revered with Cenarion Expedition and picking up that extremely badass cloth healing headpiece.

Still trying to get the D3 shoulder piece from vorpil.  that fucker won't drop it.  doesn't help that often pug shadow labs suck.  Attempting some to try and get the 1h healing dagger from Botanica, but no serious attempts yet.

Trying to get attuned for karazhan.  Haven't really found a suitable group yet for black morass.  The amount of stupid shit you have to clear before engaging Medivh is retarded.  

Nice arena team John.  Should be fun.  I think some people in our guild are trying to form a 5 man  but I haven't seen them on that much lately.  I guess we'll see.

my Dranei female preist gets hit on more than my blood elf female warlock :/

a random player told me to quit BE warlock and be an orc one. fuck that i dont care about racials especially if it means looking like an ogre. these will be my first wow characters to get past level 10 :D
any beginer advice on talents for PvE? both chars are 15 but i havent spent any talent points yet. if it means anything my BE warlock duo's with an undead preist. oh and zomg the worldofwarcraft forums are full of emo's especially mages crying about warlocks

i'd say affliction.  affliction is good for both pvp and pve.  it minimizes your downtime by being able to drain the health out of your enemies faster than usual and the chance of your draining being interrupted are small compared to other specs.

I recently respecced my warlock to affliction and I like it a lot.  Kiting people in battlegrounds and mobs is good fun too.

I already have one of my characters at 70 (easily replacing Tier II with dugeon blues) and working on my second.

On my server that are people who seem like they absolutely will not give up their epics.

Even at 70 I see people clinging onto their tier 2.  Bloodfang, Nemesis, you name it and people are still wearing it.

I don't know about Bloodfang but some of the Nemesis pieces were able to be replaced with your first couple of hours in Outlands.

Dinged 66, got Cloak of Shadows.  Fuck you, warlocks!

I respecced.  Fists.  11/46/0.

Glad somebody can stick it to warlocks.

Glad they changed it so prep didn't affect this talent.  Cooldown is awfully short but whatever i guess.  Warlocks and shitty shadow priests will have the toughest time dealing with this.

Hit 65.  Leveling feels so slow.  Time for a new area i think.

So today, an arms warrior and I, a holy priest, were questing near the ogre stronghold (on the bridge) in Zangarmarsh.  

We get jumped by a shadow priest, a feral druid, a warlock, and at some time a paladin came through but i don't know what happened to him because i was already dead.  three/four very strong pvp classes, all of which that were at our level.  Well, we won.  Which is hilarious imo.  

Best part was I got ganked at about 15% health earlier in the day by that warlock.  So did others too since I remember others mentioning it in the general chat.  So after I'm killed I run back to my body and  hover around my body for awhile.  The druid and warlock start fighting a mob.  everyone else is gone.

I then remembered my favorite ability.

Mind Control.

Warlock took a hop into the abyss.  Fucker.  Saw him 5 minutes later with rez sickness.

Two more semesters and I'll graduate and find a job.  Once that happens I'm definitely going to be looking seriously into buying a Mac.  I've wanted one for years.  

hey, even celebrities like Macs: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Mf989Hg3T1A
