3.1 out today
unlikely. I heard from the faimilly that warlocks are out damaging paladins at the moment, so I'm expecting to hear of swings of a large nerf bat again
LOL... oh yeah, as we sit here waiting for 3.2 to be implimented, all I hear from my friends was how the entire WotLK patch was pre-nerfed. Sadly tho, I have to agree. I mean some of the content "nerfing" was needed, but I remember when the game used to be a challenge to play. LOL.. .now the only thing challenging is finding good team players.
(sound of the inevitable "very large" nerf bat again)
New to this forum! But like sound of this section already.
Played WoW for 4.5 years, and yes I'm a hunter.
The days of 60 were actually challenging and EPIC were worth something, through to 70, sadly some nerfs came, but some were needed, but some just took it too far and made game easy,
WOTLK made it too easy, I mean at level 74 my druid was getting 1.5k dps all time etc (trash mobs or bosses in AN etc)
Don't like sound of 3.2, new 80's will have good gear for farming heriocs, i prefer keeping epics in raids, and making the new 80's work at quests for blues, then heriocs for iLevel 200 blues/epics and using badges to upgrade to raid gear, I see where Blizzard comes from, they want every1 to have even chance, but I think blizzard are being too lazy right now.
Tier gear looks ****, same models as before tbh, and they will nerf some1 too much and 3.2.1 (quick after they make mistakes), they'll boost them and nerf someone else!
As hunter, I'm quite happy atm, we have good dps, and own in PVP and PVE, I can get steady 4.5k Dps, and my druid healer is doing well (altho been nerfed in pve i'd say, pvp we're too good) at 2.2k hps in ulduar. I quit my raiding guild, as for first time in 2years of raiding, i didnt enjoy it being too easy and loot being so worthless haha, hardmodes were fun i guess
I hope 3.3 will bring rewards for RAIDERS and make Icecrown Citadel a challenging raid.
In patch 3.1, I did 5 bosses in Ulduar10 on patch day! shows how easy it is
I'd like to hear your opinions on 3.2, whether it's too easy, or it's fair balancing game

Well these days 4.5k dps is kinda meh (for 25 mans for sure), but then the post was rather dated. I've seen mages pull up around 10k dps, though on anub'arak (still working on him in TotGC 25) my current guild, we were clocking in at a combined 225,000 dps. I'm still working on my hunter though (well was before I got stuck on dialup due to financial reasons), but he was only doing about 6.7 or 6.8k dps on Koralan for instance. We pretty much have a 3 night a week raid schedule... My guy's gear isn't all 245 and above, or even 232 and above however. There's still a lil 219 and 226 left, and the trinkets I think are still item level 200...
All in all, things have become a fair bit too easy. My main's a Nelf, an alt on another realm is an orc, and in about 1 months time without playing that much or often he was geared almost equal stat wise to my main. Course with TotC and the like, I already had gone through the content before; but on the other hand, I knew exactly what to run to gear an alt up in little time. It just took some Totc5 norm farm, some heroics, repping, a nax10 run; then my alt peeps were like "sure bring him into TotC10 and 25; hmm you did the bosses before? OK it's not that hard, you can finish gearing here, you're mostly epiced and had done it all before".
I remember when things were more of a challenge, and tbh some of those earlier days with some friends I had known were a lot more fun then sitting around and doing the same daily, every single day, to farm gold. And yes the person was right on "hard to find a good group". PuGing ony can be painful these days, Koralan has many a fire bather, and when I mention the following, nuf said.
Just try to farm AQ40 to get the achievment sometime, and watch a group of 80s wipe on Twin Emporers, or even the first boss. In some cases, it's some DK who thinks they can take everything, and insists on multi-tanking the emporers I've also seen wipes in ZG on the cat boss (for mount farming), as some keep trying to single target DPS each of the priests down individually, and complain when they res. I and others have told them the need to kill them together until we're blue in the face, and I've many times given up with a "here we go, a wipe will come", sometimes 15 mins in the making as some don't seem to figure it out.
Oh, and on AQ40, finally, finally find a group that can down the twin emporers, after enough runs to get hostile rep with Nozdarmu, pretty much all on failed PuGs; and like half of them rush the eye of C'thun and get eye beamed :rofl
