THE DRAGONFLIGHT EXPERIENCE |
Thursday, May 25, 2023: |
What a feelin' - hurling Chaos Bolts that delete most of the opposition's HP. Now they gotta bring back No CD G-Pies, and my life will be complete haha.
Since Horde can't win for crap these days (need to find the time of day when good groups might be more readily available), I'm just levelin' up my Lock.

Here's the deal. Unless you are a competitive PvP'er (doing this for a living), it's better to stick with what you know or what you are skilled at. Eventually, the class or spec is going to get their turn in the spotlight.
Learning and mastering a new class and spec is not the problem. It's the hours and hours of investing in it, in gearing and practicing it - only to have fuckin' Blizz nerf it to the ground shortly after. This is a common practice from Blizz -
what we call, "An Endless Bad Habit".
With Blizz Buffing, Nerfing, Buffing, Nerfing in an endless cycle - what's the point. It becomes a complete waste of time investing in gearing up or learning a new class or spec.
Only to have Blizz nerf it to the ground. Because I bet some of the PvP Devs are losing to these classes probably as well haha. It's usually a "Learn To Play or Optimally Play" issue.

Now this is the Real April Fool's Joke hahaha

Was the AWC Global Finals post-poned until next weekend due to the Ret Paladin controversy? Otherwise - we'd probably be seeing teams full of Rets. Ain't that the truth - Chanimal has a video noting this. Not fun at all - not even to watch.
We already know Blizz has issues with class balancing (quite incompetent with it for years).
Friday, March 24, 2023: Ret Is Now "Ret"ard-etly OP haha |
Let the complaints come in. It won't be long before it receives the nerfbat. Blizz tends to do this with melee classes - over buff them. And class stacking becomes the norm.
Although I can switch and learn other classes, I choose to stick with what I know or comfortable with (caster classes). Blizz can nerf my classes all they want - eventually, two things is going to happen.
Either they continue to buff, nerf, buff, nerf classes in a never-ending cycle, or we end up un-subscribing permanently due to their incompetence at balancing.

For the first time, I did not complete the first raid of "Dragonflight". Nor did I try any further attempts after the first week. And I don't have the motivation or interest to. When the last boss fight is similar or near carbon copy
of the bird fight in "Throne of Thunder" from MOP, that is just lazy design. Not to mention how quick the raid was.

I already forgot that the AWC Gauntlet / Grand Finals was at the end of March. I guess teams need an entire month to prepare or practice haha. For PvE fans, there's the Mythic Invitational for now.

My favorite AWC team name has got to be the "Super Frogs" (past, present or future). They were together even on Cloud9, but disbanded unfortunately - Chanimal defected. There were some very
unsual, generic names to say the least. I'm curious how in the hell they come up with them haha. Second favorite: "Blast Wave Bros."
I use the Blast Wave spell now and then (or used it as a Fire Mage in the previous expansion) - it has its uses, but not practical or useful at all in an Arena setting however. With a greater Knockback effect now (still not much damage unfortunately), it can be useful to escape, throw players off, etc.

Why is that everytime Blizz nerfs and buffs different classes, players feel the need to re-roll to what they call, "FOTM". Switching specs is understandable, but
rerolling to that completely different class / spec? Just stick with your bread and butter, and eventually they'll buff it to viability at some point. Regardless, it's better
to play your bread and butter (or what your most comforatable with / what you mastered), rather than spreading yourself too thin.
Multi-classing is fine and dandy, and I myself have some. But not at the expense of going after "FOTM" (the class Blizz buffs the most or what the meta is).

There was not much improvement in her play-by-play: "Health getting low!", "They are about to go down", etc. haha. Azael is a breathe of fresh air however.

AWC in progress. So why did they disable chat on Youtube (I'm sticking with Youtube to avoid the bubonic plague of ads on fuckin' twitch). My theory or guess is
to avoid the chat room making fun of Eiya for her play-by-play haha. To be fair - it's probably better than most of us (I sure as hell wouldn't be able to). Experience is everything sometimes. For certain - still a long ways to go, and plenty
of room to improve for her haha.
So Chanimal joined the Dark Side in EU. Whatever haha. Is he still even in Cloud9 or no longer.
Monday, January 16, 2023 |
The AWC begins this Friday. Is Chanimal (of Cloud9 fame) going to return, or is he going to stick to Classic? Is he still part of NA?
The Nokhud Offensive can be a fun dungeon - only if you are comfortable with dragon riding that is. Otherwise - it is hellish. The dungeon is dependent on dragon riding as movement,
otherwise - you might land randomly on pack of trash.

RBG's have been atrocious on the Horde-side. It's like a bunch of PvE'ers or undergeared newbies are joining. It is what it is - there are competitive games however. Just keep queue-ing.
Why are there are so few bosses in "Vault Of The Incarnates"? This raid is a quickie I guess.

Finally hit Level 70 - via running BG's and the campaign storyline. How is the Arcane experience - I'm adapting well, and getting used to it (PvP-wise, at least). With the new UI, I'm still trying to get comfortable in locating
where the spells are. In no time, it'll be muscle memory haha. Or I wish we could keybind everything, but there's only a finite amount of keybinds unfortunately.
PvP S1 begins Tuesday. I guess I should start leveling up my Shadow Priest (which is one of the new Go-To spec now). They have been viable, but never Top-Tier or Go-To in recent years or expansions.
Wednesday, November 30, 2022 |
So what is the Go-To spec now for Mages. Is the "Arcane Dream" finally alive haha. I never really tried playing Arcane - perhaps now is the time. It'll take awhile to get used to it - especially finding my optimal talent points
to fit my playstyle. Or just playing around or figuring out various talents. Fire has been top tier or viable for several expansions now (so has Frost - but Frost never really became top tier), so I guess Arcane is way overdue. In a BG setting I guess, I think you can make do
with any spec.
As usual, I'm going to take my time leveling. And enjoy the questing / storylines.
Friday, November 25, 2022 |
For me - it's catch up time since I took a month long break. It's the time of experimenting with different talents, now that we have the talent trees. The available or type of talents - some of them are questionable, taken directly from the SL legendaries or covenant effects haha.
You'd think the dev team would be creative enough to come up with new, unique talents. But that's over-estimating them or giving them too much credit haha.
Is Fire viable? Probably, with the right talents. But I wouldn't be surprised if Frost was more viable. Since control and survivability is just as important as damage for me, I opted to select some of the talents in the Frost area.
If I have to switch to Frost, so be it.
Friday, September 30, 2022: Time To Train Your Dragon On November 28 |
And tho it begins "finally" - on 11/28/22. It's time to train your Dragon on November 28 haha. Whether or not it's a finished product or far from it (I surmise from the lack of features / marketing), do you really want Shadowlands to last
5+ years? It might be the longest lasting expansion to date - and one of the worst to say the least haha.
