Patch 2.4.2 is now live

In patches by Myrddin6 Comments

Patch 2.4.2 is now live, however it seems that some changes are different fromt eh patch realm. Scare Beast for example is not an instant spell, it has 1.5 seconds cast left. While the Dragonstrike is dualwieldable the procc does no longer stack. This makes the weapon less desireable, since it is outdated since Mount Hyjal/Black Temple, not to even mention Sunwell Plateau.

Patch 2.4 has come live. I was stil hoping Kalgan had some hidden Shaman buffs up his sleeves, but it seemes the tries to make Enhancement Shaman viable for Arena stopped halfway. World of Warcraft Client Patch 2.4.0 The latest patch notes can always be found at http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patchnotes/ The latest test realm patch notes can always be found at http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patchnotes/test-realm-patchnotes.html Fury of the Sunwell The glorious fount of arcane energy known as the Sunwell empowered the high elves for millennia, until the death knight Arthas laid siege to the elven kingdom and corrupted its sacred energies. Seeing no other alternative, a band of survivors led by Prince Kael’thas destroyed the ancient fount. Over time the surviving elves fell pray to a crippling magical withdrawal. Now, promising salvation for his people, Kael’thas has returned. Soon the Sunwell will shine once again, but whether the sacred fount will usher in deliverance or destruction remains to be seen.

Here are Screenshots of the New Mounts that are introduced with the new PTR Patch 2.3. The Engineer Flying Mount, Hippogryph Cenarion Mount and the most awesome looking Bear Mount from Zul'Aman: The Bear Mount is the coolest Mount ingame, it really looks awesome.

Patch 2.1 Preview

In patches by MyrddinLeave a Comment

As Posted by Blizzard here, there are several neat plans for future content. Epic Flight Form for Druids and Netherdrake Mount are most likely the most interesting parts. But read it yourself. The 2.1.0 patch and the opening of the now defiled Black Temple, home of Illidan and his minions has long been known. However, the patch is also introducing a great deal of new solo and 5-person content as well, with new rewards, factions, and items. As we're approaching the release of the patch we wanted to share a glimpse into some of the upcoming content that hadn't yet been confirmed for this next patch, or hadn't even been known of until now. Druid Epic Flight Form The Druid Epic flight form will be available through a series of quests, similar to the Warlock and Paladin Epic mount quests before it. This quest series will also open up a new boss in Sethekk Halls, and ultimately to the epic flight form. Ethereum Prison Players in good standing with the Consortium will be tasked to deal with the most recent activities of the nefarious Ethereum. With new quests, items, and content for the solo and small-group level 70 player, the …

Druid Hotfix – 3/06/07

In patches by MyrddinLeave a Comment

Since Bear Druids took a rough beating with the reduction of Swipe and Mangle Damage, Reduction of Critical strike Damage Bonus even Blizzard realized that the nerf was too big to keep us Druids as Tanks. My Mangle did up to 2500 Damage on a Target while it is not at around 1200 Damage. I think its a tough cut for a 41 point Talent. I think there are other classes that deal many times more burst damage. I wonder when and if Warlocks, Undead Shadowpriests and Mages will be brought in Line as well. Till then we PvP doing Hurricane and Travelform. This information is taken from: http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=79628116&sid=1 Hotfix 3/06/07 The Druid ability Lacerate will now land a small amount of instant damage, causing it to generate threat against bleed-immune creatures. The Druid ability Mangle (Bear) will now generate 50% bonus threat. Additional explanation for these fixes and information on Armor: We’ve taken a close look at constructive feedback provided on our Druid Bear changes, and are hotfixing the following changes today: Lacerate will now do a small amount of direct damage to the target. This means it will generate threat rather than an immune message when used on …

Burning Crusade Beta: Patch 2.03 Rogue Changes

In patches by MyrddinLeave a Comment

World of Raids has the new patchnotes for Burning Crusade Beta Patch 2.03 online. You can read all patch notes here. For us Rogues only some minor changes were applied. Rogues: Rogue talent Weapon Expertise changed to 2/2 increasing weapon skill of daggers/swords/fist weapons by 10. Suprise attacks dmg increased from 8% to 10%. Renataki Charm of Trickery changed (scales with lvl now, 40 energy at lvl 70) Venomous Totem changed to: Use: Increases the damage dealt by instant Poison by 65 and the periodic damage dealt by Deadly Poison for 22 for 20 sec. Rogue T4 set bonuses changed, are now: (2) Set: increases the duration of your Slice and Dice ability by 1 sec per combo point. (4) Set: Your finishing moves have a 15% chance to grant you a combo point.  Weapon Expertise is still quite useless, since the nerf of +weaponskill. It no longer reduces the damage reduction by glancing blows and just increases the critchance versus higher level mobs by 0.1% per +weaponskill. I do not think it is worth 2 Talent points I  have not heard if they also adjusted the mace skill in the mace specialization, but I would not wonder if Blizzard …

Patch 1.13 coming on December 5th

In patches by MyrddinLeave a Comment

As confirmed by blue the new Patch 1.13 "Before the Storm" will come online at December 5th. If You are still trying to gain Rank it will be too late now. Next reset Your gained Rank will no longer grant You access to the PvP Items due to the changes to the honor system. In my eyes Alterac rewards will be much harder to get now with the new requirements, but we will see. I suppose for us Europeans it will mean that we get the patch 1 day after. The coming patch will include the new talents, the new honor system and many more features of the Burning Crusade Expansion.  "The next World of Warcraft content update, “Before the Storm,” will include the new PvP Honor System, as well as other new features that will prepare us for The Burning Crusade expansion. We are currently planning to release this content update next Tuesday, December 5. Please note that the patch date is still subject to change, and we will keep you informed of any changes to the plan as they happen. If the patch goes live as planned, this will be the last week that new PvP ranks under …
