Monday, March 30th, 2009

A rather uneventful PTR build 9742 was pushed today and an even more uneventful BlizzCast 8 came out today. Looks like the PTR DK changes are basically tweaks or rollbacks from previous changes and BlizzCast 8 basically focused on D3 and SC2. Here is a rundown of the DK changes via MMOC .

“Ghetto” Hearthing Actually Did Get Nerfed

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

A few days ago I noticed a blue response to an off the wall thread in the official forums that asked for “ghetto hearthing” to be nerfed. The thread was, of course, started by a mage that claimed that the exploiting of the free hearth cost him/her gold because people didn’t need ports anymore… Eyonix responded with what seemly looked like a sarcastic way of blowing off the subject: Eyonix But then mages who hate being asked for ports will make rant posts demanding we bring back ghetto hearthing. Mages like to yell.

Still lots of 3.1 info to sort through, but a very exciting change to dual spec was announced today by CM Zarhym. Apparently the level requirement will be lowered to 40, lexicon requirement removed, and will only take a 5 second, out of combat, cast time to swap. Zarhym Dual specialization isn’t something everyone needs.
