Hello folks! I'm newcomer on this server, really excited about PTE idea, could be awesome. Tbh, I don't actually care if management of website etc will belong to elysium untill we get quality server we have been promised. Actually thinking about what class was considered decent during all expansions in both way PvP and PvE. Thinking of : Shaman, Priest, Mage, Warlock, Hunter. I like the lore of Shaman class, but I know that Shammy is often considered OP merely in Resto spec in both pvp and pve. Even though i like healing, I found enha/ele fun and it makes me feel upset that forums are full of whining that they can't reach high arena ratings, you won't get spot in raid as enha/ele (now and then in different patches of different xpacs). Because I like healing, I'm thinking of Priest, but again, playing shadow sometimes would be great. In Vanilla priest is mostly go to class when it comes to healing, and in later xpansions you will never enjoy the feeling of being sometimes top DPS. When i was reading some forums, often found that in like wotlk and later shadow was like no skill class, everyone can play it etc etc. Mage. Big numbers - oh, how I love them! BUT i experienced TBC PvE mages just sitting outside of raid and being mobile McDonalds. Not beacuse their dps was bad, but because warlocks were superior and there was no reason to take mage over warlock. In PvP they were always kinda good? Or at least decent? Or am I wrong? But they can't heal, I like healing but let's consider just they viability in a long shot. Warlock - completely mess in Vanilla. Absolutely dominating in TBC in both pvp and pve. After TBC ... in 1v1 not the best, but good ones. Also don't wanna pick up a spec only because of one xpansion where they were OP, maybe two (including wotlk?), but what about them in cata, mop, wod? Hunter. Always viable, not the best, funny and boring at the same time. From private servers I also experienced bugged pets, so pet management isn't very comfortable. But having personal tank comes handy. But we all know that rumors and gossips about how huntards and how easy faceroll class they're. In PvP, TBC wasn't their brightest period, but in PvE they had legendary!!! In vanilla they were decent, in WotLK an later they were good. So please, good citizens of Crestfall, would you mind throwing some of your opinions about these classes in the comments below, which might help me choosing one of them? Please focus more on like stability of class during longer period of time through multiple expansions. I'm also very curious what are your opinions on Shaman's DPS specs capabilities in arenas (can shammy hit 3000 arena rating ever in enha/ele in 2v2, 3v3?) and raids (but in raids i have no problem with healing). Thanks in advance! Cheers! P.S.: If someone asked me what is the most stable class in history of WoW, I would probably answer Rogue. But hey, Rogue is not on the list, never been my cup of coffee.
I thought I'd start a thread to discuss downranking spells as a Healing Priest. I'm in no way an expert on this topic as I did a majority of my end game healing in BC and if I remember correctly that was around the time this entire topic became obsolete (or at least was heading that way). I'm personally curious as to some of the thought process behind downranking for certain situations and how a few players who are used to the mechanic get that accomplished. So Downranking is essentially using a lower rank of a spell for mana efficiency or occassionally for a quicker cast (again I don't know if this is particularly applicable in terms of priest spells). If anyone has a better definition of such that would be helpful. Currently I'm using click casting addons whereas in the past I used Healbot. I'm noticing issues with my setup (which might be better suited to ask in an addon thread) where Clique won't properly Downrank. Calling all Vanilla healer pros for advice and help with the particulars of Downranking and how to actually implement those casts.
Gosh so empty in here. So I'm sitting with the talent calculator open and playing around a bit. Trying to come up with a spec that is effective for leveling, good for healing pug dungeons and that can hold it's own in PvP encounters. Here's what I've been able to come up with so far. Level 19 http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent#bVZZx Level 29 http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent#bVMhoZbZx0b Level 39 http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent#bVMhoZbLtZx0b Level 49 http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent#bVMhRZbLtccbZx0b Level 60 http://db.vanillagaming.org/?talent#bVMhsZbLtccbaxx0b The build should continue to work fine for a casual bit of everything, but you might want to switch to a build geared towards your endgame. A few notes Holy Nova is rubbish for both healing and dealing damage. But Rank 1 is excellent for busting Rogues out of stealth! 2 points in Shadow Focus makes sure your Fear isn't going to get resisted. I find 1 point in Spirit of Redemption worth it. Not to everyones taste. Putting points into Meditation only makes sense later on when stats on gear improves. The 3 points in Inspiration can be moved to Improved Renew. Whatever your preference is. A typical rotation would be Mind Blast -> SW:Pain -> PW:Shield on self -> wand the mob to death. With multiple mobs just DoT them up and keep yourself alive while they rot. Be sure to refresh SW:Pain as needed. Hope you find it helpful and I look forward to hear everyones take and suggestions.
