Patch 4.0.3a DPS Concerns

Patch 4.0.3a brought about some nerfs that weren’t mentioned in the patch notes.  Yes, we knew Crusader Strike was being knocked down to 115% weapon damage…and yes, we knew Hammer of Wrath was getting a roughly 25% damage reduction.  But, with Exorcism getting another nifty boost to damage, I figured things would be okay, even […]

Patch 4.0.3a First Impressions

I spent the better part of 3 hours running around with a guildie gathering all the new flight paths and sightseeing.  During that time, I snapped a bunch of screenshots and tested out some new abilities.  I will post up as soon as I get off work. The new world is gorgeous.  I couldn’t stop staring […]

Cataclysm is about to get underway with Patch 4.0.3a.  Retribution Paladins are going to notice several changes specifically targeted towards their class and spec, and will notice some other changes as well.

Level 71 to 80 XP Reduction

Zarhym announced there will be a 20% reduction in experience required to level from 71 to 80 when Patch 4.0.3a goes live.  This is excellent news, as all other indicators suggested the experience numbers would remain the same, which is very different than previous expansions. I am thrilled, because I have a Paladin sitting at […]
