Tier 9

June 25, 2009 at 8:06 am (Warlock, WoW General)

Well, everybody’s talking about the newly-data-mined Tier 9.  Two comments about warlocks:

a) Kel’Thuzad.  Is. Not. A. Warlock.  Can I have the Gul’dan set instead? (after all, it’s not like the modern Horde is any more tightly aligned with Gul’dan than we Alliance would be – he was, after all, the one who betrayed them to oh hell, why do I bother?  Blizzard doesn’t care about their own history and lore, why should I?)

b) “(4) Set:  Increases the damage done by your Immolate, Corruption, and Unstable Affliction by 01 sec.”  Leaving aside the really awkward phrasing (do they mean that it increases the duration?):  Wow.  A whole second.   Seems a bit…anemic for a four-piece set bonus, particularly given our eternal enemies – uh, I mean, good friends, the Mages, get 5% crit to all their bread-and-butter nukes.  Elemental Shamans have something similar to what we’re stuck with, so hopefully, it’s just a placeholder ability.

As for other thoughts on 3.2, well, while I’ve been focusing on real life stuff the last several days, Temitope at I, Deathtard has been saying what I’m thinking (in a somewhat ambivalent, and carefully nuanced post entitled “Screw You, Argent Tournament”).  I’m beginning to worry that I share a brain with him/her and Tamarind.

    M’Pocket Tank have honed our Brain Sharing to a fine art with much WoWing but I’m sure I speak on behalf of said brain when I say you are very welcome indeed in our, err, Brain Party…

    Okay, could I have made that sound any *less* appealing? =P

    God, I’m kind of imagining us sitting round like the Graiai, grumbling and passing our one brain around.
