I wonder if they'll even bother implementing new PVP gear for level 70. Hell, I wonder if they'll even update AV. 51-60 AV and a 61-70 AV?

And what about the other BGs? Will the 60 bracket become 60-69? Or will WSG and AB just go away also.

There's some screenshots of the level 70 PVP Weapons floating around somewhere. All I know is that it's the blue gear, it's still called Grand Marshal's/High Warlord's, and there's a mace (the Grand Marshal's Maul or something like that) that gives +454 Feral AP.

I have serious doubt about my sword build right now. Recently, I have been tempted by a dagger build, but the lack of good daggers kept me hesitating. I could probably PVP my way up to a good PVP dagger, and use my main hand in my off hand (totally doable now). I mean, all I need is about 3000 honor (IIRC) and 30something AB badges.

EDIT:

Also, the water elemental rocks. I will test him out in a 59 elite quest in Winterfall, but the idea of a ranged frost nova is rather appealing. It only costs one mana more than my frost bolts, and I am sure it has a better damage ration in its 45 seconds...

There's a bunch of level 61-70 weapons in the PVP Hall in Stormwind that you can't buy.

You can buy them, using them is another thing.

Kinda like how there are jewelcrafting designs floating around? Or how at 60 I have an XP bar, but I cant gain XP yet?

It sure does, and you get 2 nova's from it in the timespan that it's around. It seems sortof dumb PVP attackingwise, and doesn't do shit during a duel (BG server crashed a bit from all the games, so everyone was dueling to test thier specs), but it's worth it for the novas, easily. If only I could figure out how to hotkey it's nova, i'd be set.

Its also a targetted nova you can use while you run.

And using Cold Snap, in 45 seconds you can have 6 frost novas.

the more I think about it, the more I want to switch my rogue to a dagger spec. I have good gloves for it, and well, as a NE, I am better at hiding and I should use that. I just don't think Barman Shanker will cut it since I have a pretty good sword to live up to (the 1 hander from Garr... brutality blade... I think?)

So other than the PVP dagger, I can't think of a good main hand weapon.

And I will probably need to replace my off hand for Mutilate... if I go that way.

For all the talk of hunters being shafted, I've heard people saying that they do pretty much as much damage as they did before, and I did not notice any difference on my level 24 hunter.

im actually impressed, i have a lvl60 and im happy with it, the 2 sec arming on our traps sucks buto ur Arcane sot got a sweet boost. Get ready to own Priest with silence shot, its a gift from heaven, it pretty much owns casters.....warlocks cant fear and priest cant heal when they are silenced. Havent really gone against mages yet but im sure it gives us a nice advantage over them as well.

careful of disc priests. I dueled a hunter and won pretty easily just by casting shield, renew, and pain. I was silenced, but since he was just killing himself on my shield, it didnt really matter.

OK I finally got the patch installed. I went with a Beast Mastery spec on my hunter. HOLY CRAP has it improved. The little boost the pets get now from your stats actually makes a difference, and the other changes to the BM tree are nice as well. I did an AB just to test it out for PvP even though I was 5 levels low for the bracket (lvl 44), and I ended up taking second place overall (2nd in killing blows, 1st in damage, 2nd in healing--yay bandages and mend pet). my pet alone had 12 killing blows in the 40-49 BG. he was eating rogues and mages alive with bestial wrath on. hunter vs. hunter is VERY interesting now.

and i like the new hunter's mark look. not nearly as annoying as a giant flipping arrow.

also, warlocks and hunters get new pets apparently. warlocks get a felgaurd (i think) and hunters can now tame the giant snakes from ZG. i dunno if the ZG snake is any different than any other hunter pet, but still it's a nice addition. the warlock pet on the other hand is extremely strong. EXTREMELY. some lock loosed her pet on the guards in hammerfall, and it took literally 20 lvl 55 gaurds like 2 minutes to kill it. plus it cleaves for 1500 damage (srsly wtf, as if locks weren't strong enough).

what's weird though is all the expansion content that's in the game, yet entirely unaccessable. like the new map that shows outland and the draenei/blood elf starting areas, the new items with sockets in them, the new jewels, jewelcrafting recipes and crud, pvp rewards that require arena tokens to buy, etc. also, there's a few blood elves lurking around here and there (there's a female blood elf NPC in the horde officer's lounge). dunno about draenei though.

another thing i have noticed though, that's entirely unfortunate, is that the economy since the patch is broken. majorly fucking broken. i dunno about your servers, but the horde AH on Illidan is fucked. there's probably 10% of the items that there used to be on there, and everything is OUTRAGEOUSLY overpriced. 30g for green bracers. 40g for green weapons. seriously i dunno wtf is going on there.

oh, and wtf happened to the channeling bar for volley? it mysteriously disappeared.

Okay, lots of details changed. I think we should list everything that was not on the patch notes. And I'm not talking about bugs but stuff like:

The animation for casting portals and teleports has changed slightly.

The sound for blizzard now includes a channeling sound like Evocation.

Water elementals now have a swim animation, kinda like how a snake would swim.

Stealthed mouvements changed slightly, it looks sneakier.

Draneis have been added. One emissary is in Stormwind Keep, another is at Chillwind Camp.

The sounds for most druid attacks in cat form make more sense now.

The community has a collective cardiac arrest as soon as Blizzard changes as much as a single pixel.

So I guess there will be less "daytime job" players?

Also, I have been reporting people like crazy lately. Ads for powerleveling, gold, and other crap. Pretty soon, the GMs are gonna start ignoring me.

I think He means that the battlegrounds have been really unstable the past few days as thousands and thousands of people are trying to start collecting honorz and such.

I will wisely wait a week or so before trying BGs seriously.

I only need 29 more AB and 21 900 honor...

Then I'll switch to dagger rogue... but not a mutilate rogue because I would need an off-hand...

The Rampage battlegroup has been down for over 24 hours. Also, Illidan has broken for 4-6 hours starting at prime time for the past 3 days.

Give it a day or two, to work out the kinks. THey may have dropped the ball, but now its a lot better.

God forbid Blizzard be infalliable, honestly. Is it frustrating to be almost winning an AB for once, just to have the BGs freeze? You bet. But, honestly, they just released the biggest content patch in the history of the game, and now the BG servers are being pushed to their max. I'm not suprised. Frustrated, maybe, but not too suprised.

I did some BG last night without any problems.

Now I just need to evaluate how long it,ll take to make 45K honor and 40 SB marks. Then I'll try to become a brand spanking new dagger rogue. I may even go the poison/mutilate way, but I am stiill unsure. I may try a different approach with a 3 way hybrid ambush/backstab dagger spec rogue with some combat up to daager specialisation...

At this point, I am gonna have to study the way of the dagger, since I only did sword/combat builds so far. My lack of Tier 1 means that a Vigor build is not likely... And Mutilate is a continuity of a vigor build... Oh well, time to go back to the drawing board...

Oh the woes of faction imbalance. I have been level 44 for the past week. No, not because I don't play. I play plenty. But because about 80% of my game time is spent defending myself from gankers, or better yet, being camped by them once they are successful.

Illidan stats:

8,448 Alliance vs. 3,756 Horde.

Maybe it'll change for the better when the expansion rolls around (all the horny 12 year olds might roll blood elves instead of the usual humans or night elves). One can always hope.

Anyways, that's night 7 of no levelling (I logged off in disgust when I returned to my corpse only to find a 60 NE druid sitting on it. Hurray.)

:cry:
