[ExtremeTech] Ten Reasons World of Warcraft Sucks - Page 7

post #61 of 68
My first 70 was a Druid. Jesus H Batman were they overpowered. I remember I had greens and a few blues when I hit 70, the worst part about it is I could still hit 1000DPS like it was nothing as a feral spec. Whaa cry about nerfed Druids? They needed it. If removing or adding anything to the game get rid of shammies and paladins. Don't get me started on Paladin BS.

People just need to **** and learn to play their class. Also, sometimes I wish I could change my Prot tanking gear into DPS gear for my warrior, but am I *****ing about it?

I agree with this, in sorts. I had been in an end game raiding guild for nearly three years. In that time, I can't think of one raiding dps warrior that hasn't been wearing leather at some point in his/her raiding career. I had a lazer-turkey in my guild pick up tailoring just so he could get the spellfire set, before the black temple patch. We thought it was hilarious when he'd pop off 8k starfire crits and watch people throw a fit about it.

Who are these people that only wear plate or leather? From my experience, the only people that refuse to wear items with lower armor rating are the people that don't know enough about maximizing dps to earn a raiding spot.

The reason I don't agree fully is that I don't think it's a player base or game problem. It's a moron problem. The people that refuse to wear softer armor with better stats and complain about it are the people that would buy a Lian Li case, put all their old hardware in it and complain that the computer isn't any faster.
(sorry for the obscure analogy but I had a recent customer call to complain about this exact thing) /facepalm

He didn't even run Kara, and probably everything after it in BC. Link an armory or I'm just gonna assume this guy is some scrub with a sub-par arena rating.

The only criticism of WoW that I have at the moment is the fact that they have really destroyed raiding. I raided to 5/6 SSC and 3/4 TK before the black temple patch when every boss felt like it was damn hard but then the rewards were just as good.

Now, you don't even have to kill the final bosses of SSC and TK and just go straight to the next level.

ie. "Wahhh I couldn't kill the final boss of the underwater level but I want to go straight to Bowser!"

Not only do I now have people walking around in BT/Hyjal gear (after nearly every boss has been nerfed to hell) but I have noobs that do 10 arena games a week in full season 3 gear which destroys my T5 set.

So what the hell did I spend 15 hours a week raiding for?

Stupid blizzard. Raiders are quitting on you and it shows.

Druids are still insanely overpowered especially in 2v2's.
  1. Pounce stun 3 seconds.
  2. Feral charge 4 seconds.
  3. Bash Bash 4 seconds.
  4. Cyclone 6 seconds.
  5. Entangling roots 6-10 seconds immobilized +dmg tick.
  6. Nature's grasp 35% chance to cast entangling roots on target when struck (talents it can be 100%)

That plus fast movement and impossible to keep snared/rooted?

Not to mention they can heal up while beat on in bear using rage!

Then switch out and throw hots up while your stunned and switch right back!

Now, the other stuff..


Yes we need new BGs, but they have them in the works for the new expansion. They are actually taking time to FIX the current BGs too!
Premade groups now match up with other premades. AV is fair now. No more turtling in AV or WSG.


Flying mounts don't work in Azeroth because they weren't designed to. Period. You can get around very easily still with FREE portals in shatt. Epic flying mounts? Yes they are a bit expensive but with all the daily quests put in you could have the gold fairly quickly if you work at it. Better yet, work the auction house!

Gnome healers.... LOL!! Not even touching that one.




Fear overpowered??? LOL!! Only coming from a druid. Fear is more likely to break from damage. (meaning you are probably not completely feared before you die) Trinkets break fear, it's cleansable, and only priest and locks can instant fear. (warriors too but their's breaks on ANY dmg) Fear has diminishing returns like all CC too so after 3 fears you are immune. NOT overpowered.


Leveling is a pain?? They actually reduced the amount needed for lvls 1-60 and upped quest xp earned. It is pretty easy and there's people who speed level 1-70 in under 2 days. Stop crying and read a guide or two.


World PVP on a PVP Server does happen and you can get honor from it but it's less then just going in the battlegrounds. You probably didn't like getting ganked while leveling either too I'm sure. PLUS it adds load to the world servers causing lag felt by everyone. The main thing on a PVP server is you have the 'OPTION' to kill someone most places.


Been playing wow a long time.
This quote is just plain sad.
Get out of the house and do something besides WoW while you still can.

Quoted for truth no doubt about it. It is because of casuals etc that blizzard nerf's the raid content to hell and scrubs can walk around in BT/Hyjal gear atm, and then PVP and have gear that is as good as PVE raiding gear. Seems it has become more about Arena's etc than raiding, but that is just my humble opinion
I remember when people were all crying about Gruul because he was too hard lawl, but he was a challenge pre-nerf and all the noobs couldnt own him until they nerf'd him...
Pardon me I'm just venting here, got a little stirred up

I agree a bit, but this is the best PC game ever. Yes it will taint all MMOrpgs from now to eternity, but it has brought a whole new generation of gamers to MMOs, which honestly is a bad thing. Stupid 10 year old Kids....

I'm on the fence with this game, Great, but made too much of an impact on future games and one word CAREBEAR.
