Re: Hyjal Dreams

Ultimately my issue with the philosophy of locking a zone behind a grind wall is that, as you said, "Divide the huge grind into tiny time sinks" is a core philosophy of RPG design and I disagree with the assertion that "the timbermaw neutral grind is really quick and easy to do, not a problem at all...

Re: Hyjal Dreams

Horizontal gear progression seems like a great way to lure in players to explore the content. No critiques initially, sounds amazing. The hubs focused on Timbermaw will be ultimately prohibitive even with quests at neutral reputation due to just how boring the rep grind to neutral is. Don't get me w...

Re: Class changes are coming in Patch 1.15.2

Without changes, most strictly vanilla servers die in 3 years. This is simply due to the nature of their progression through the content and, once the bulk of the playerbase has seen most or all of naxx, there's nothing left for them so some pvp and others just get bored and leave, and the pvpers so...

Re: Outland factions brainstorm

I would be interested to see how each faction treats the demons of the legion. Obviously they'd all be antagonistic, but Maiev was more focused on Illidan and saw the demons as just roadblocks rather than a primary threat, while Illidan was the opposite and sought to end the demons entirely. How wou...

Re: Let HC ghost stay a bit longer after death

I'd prefer for it to last forever potentially so I can "haunt" a place. The only reason I delete my HC characters is they're useless to me after they can't be spoopy anymore.

Re: Class changes are coming in Patch 1.15.2

The thing to keep in mind is that this wouldn't be the first time that vanilla classes got revamps. From 1.1 to 1.12, classes went through a bunch of revamps to their talents and spells/abilities. Yeah but it was done by professional old blizz designers who managed to produce the best mmorpg of all...

Re: Class changes are coming in Patch 1.15.2

I am worried about the Champion mechanic for priests being used like a 41st raider, where the Priest applies it to someone, probably a tank, and doesn't actually enter the raid instance. Will there be something in place to prevent it from being abused this way? Also for Rogues, you could look deeper...

Re: Turtle tournament

Could honestly just petition for certain faction NPCs to drop quest items for turn-ins at friendly faction quest givers. I personally would love a quest to kill demons in the world, maybe some kind of timed world boss that only shows up at certain intervals instead of current world bosses that hang ...

Re: RL-WOW sneak-peek!

The warlocks are underpowered and are only played by RPers now. Plus all the best hunter pets were removed in the Cretaceous balance patch. The graphics are great, but you can only play in 1st person without in-game gear which can only be made by other players and costs actual in-game currency! What...

Re: How to Go Forward in Rebalancing (Poll)

Saw a few people talk about the TBC token system being applied for Vanilla tier sets, gonna discuss this with the team. I want this. I can't count the number of times I've heard from more than one raid group that "It's [class] day I guess" when one class with 1-2 people in a 40-man raid somehow get...

Re: Poll: Undead Hunters — yes or not?

I know it's basically a meme at this point, but Tauren really do need another class. They're the only race with four class options while all of the rest have at least five. Mage/Warlock is of course right out for tauren, which just leaves priest, rogue, and paladin, all of which I'd be ok with but t...

No scaling, I'd rather Naxx be something the server comes together to defeat rather than a farm for 25 or so people in each guild that can make it

Good macros to have

I haven't seen much on macros on this forum, so I'd like to contribute some useful ones I know and hope others will do the same. These aren't originally written by me, but it's been a long time and I can't find the original authors to credit. If they're out there, feel free to label your work. To no...

Re: Druid quest line idea

I'd more just give them a totem from the quest that makes shifting cheaper. It's a slot that druids don't even get the chance to fill until the endgame and the options are incredibly sparse. Could also offer a choice of totems that give a buff to some ability or set of abilities in your desired form.

Re: Solo dungeons

If I were to implement something like this, it would be a two-man structure instead to bring up the shortcomings some classes have with solo content and balance things out a little better. I'd also make it short, like a few rooms, or maybe even just one big room with doors opening up in sequence for...

I am totally down for something like this. There's a few areas like Dustwallow Marsh, Swamp of Sorrows, and Deadwind Pass that could really use some love.
