    Yes, the server will start from scratch. You can read more on their official post: Cheers.
  2. That comment made my day, you posted just before I was leaving for work. Thank you! ☺️ You should find everything you need here. It's all there for you to devour!
  3. Hello there @Sash. There's little use for such lists as you're generally gearing up and your gear can look very differently depending what other items you have from previous tier. But if you're not doing hardmodes but are doing OS25 3d and EoE on regular basis, you aim for Brood + Scale trinket setup, EoE neck quest, OS cloak (and wrist is good-ish too), T8(4) set and the rest depends on which items you already have. Sash of Ancient Power (Ulduar crafted haste+hit belt) is nifty to have unless you already have Dying Curse or other items with hit. Auriya's weapon is your best 1h weapon from any non-hardmode. Your main concern is optimizing hit - mentioned neck, belt, OH and feet from XT - and Dying Curse. You optimize on the go.

    Ninja raid leader + guild leader

    If your guild takes pugs for a run and a pug rolls the winning roll, they get it; but when a guildie "wins" an item roll, it means that the item goes to the guild, and the loot council decides to who it will go (and if DKP was used, it'd be DKP-ed, etc.). Players in question in this report are not at fault. With you being new, it's logical to withhold gearing you until you prove yourself - first raid is a test anyway. All guild members can back this up and your case is lost. And what they observed was said few posts above; you were gkicked because of bad behavior more than anything. About your spec: I see what you're doing. Instead of Arcane Blast you're using Frostfire and you're organizing your gear more towards crit, since FFB needs crit do actually deal nice damage. You still get Arcane Missiles as proc, and with the glyph ready you're doing nice damage with it - you completely compensate the need to focus haste stat this way, playing it like Fire only there's no Hot Streak but MIssile Barrage. While FFB doesn't get 15% spellpower bonus, you get 15% of your Intellect stat (so half the bonus if not less), but it goes to all spell schools. You retain 50% increased crit damage, you gain Arcane Power and 6% haste, although less crit, but then again there's +30% crit chance on clearcasting. While I do find it interesting - I really do - it I don't think that it cuts enough to outdps pure Arcane or Fire... Notice it's an opinion, not a statement, but playing a mage for this long I know that going for crit focus would reward Pyroblast's damage (regular Fire spec) more than Arcane Missiles (your spec); especially so with ICC gears when Pyroblast is way more frequent than in lower stages of gears (T7 and T8; T7 has 5% crit increase from T9(4) set bonus). FFB in some cases can deal more damage than Pyroblast and I can see the appeal to use it as spam spell, but Pyroblast is an instant where fast Arcane Missiles still take time to cast; and while they are empowered... Fire is casting Fireball/Frostfire Bolt & Living Bomb until Hot Streak triggers and are using Fire Blast as your moving spell, which can trigger Hot Streak. Arcane is casting very fast Arcane Blast until it's convenient to cast Arcane Missiles. You're casting Frostfire Bolts until Missile Barrage triggers and are using Arcane Barrage as your moving spell, which can trigger Arcane Missiles. All talents included, I just feel this spec being one step behind both. Yet, you seem convinced. Did you come up with this on your own or has someone persuaded you to use it? EDIT: Answer above question in private message if you don't mind - this report you made has nothing to do with my query.

    PvP: Ally or Horde?

    Hi there. My answer is two-fold for you. First, and the most important bit, is that Horde has less players active in PvP. Frequently, when you do BGs at level 80, it's frequently that you'd experience 40-3 players in queue (40 Alliance, 3 Horde) and thus Alliance waits for BG frequently. Horde on the other hand naturally gets instant queues or get in as soon as current one(s) finish. Secondly, the long queue on the Alliance side is because many fresh 80s queue - and I mean really fresh, being naked would've not made any difference. While Horde has it as well, the ratio is three times higher on the Alliance. And this is going on since realm's start. If you remain Alliance and aim to PvP at level 80, expect long waits in the queue and losing fast if too many green shits join. If you roll Horde, enjoy near-instant queue and, well, at least you get it instant, win or loss. Both sides have guilds/groups that make premades at different days, which usually leaves Horde always the strong one since while both sides have a premade group, Alliance always has more green shit that's easily killed and frankly, being an Alliance player at this time, is horrible with tactics and coordination. I never join a BG unless my PvP buddies are not interested, it's just not worth it.

    <Looks at the gears> T10(2)set with no haste nor crit focus, lots of spirit gear and only T9 piece. This gear combination holds back either spec. Trinkets that favor Fire. Is he hit capped with that gear? <Looks at the spec> Erm... Arcane with... with Ignite? No Icy Veins? <Looks again> Glyph of Frostfire Bolt, Arcane Missiles and Molten Armor. Wait what? <Looks again but with full attention> The spec is absolutely illogical. This is neither Arcane nor Fire. I am aware that Sunwell's Armory has talents very wrong in many aspects, but glyph choice kind of confirms the choices. So what is this, you're casting Frostfire Bolt until missile proc? Without it being empowered? It makes no sense. You poor guys got trolled so bad. Always interview class knowledge in the future. Good luck! My god, what a bad topic...

    Periodic Survey: Angrathar - Summary!

    Your approach is similar to Bloodcraft's while it was active. You have great and open communication with your community and I love you for it. As far as the slave market goes, how about this: Any char that gets sold is required to rename (for convenience) and the old name is "taken" for one week? And maybe allow customization as well? I doubt that I'll use that feature myself since I enjoy developing my characters; there are many picky people such as me who can't stand having character faces/skin colour not matching the profile we have for them. The only practical negative impact that is coming to my mind is that in some cases the playerbase won't be able to tell who is who - which is exactly why a forced rename would come in handy if the character in question has quite a bit of negative history. There's a felt impact on how players treat others when they know that they cannot hide or escape (so easily). One should consider the income as well, so the customization doesn't need to come inside the box (but maybe yes with a discount?), but I think that forcing a rename and having the name "taken" for some time (maybe even scripted to /played?) would be good to avoid some bad threads going on about. Maybe having the list of names being public and always available on the website? E.g. char "Kvish" transaction occurred on 27th October 2018? You'll figure out the details how to approach it how you think it's best, I'm just concerned for potential abuses. Thank you for reaching out to us and listening to our voices and for being transparent and utterly vigilant in your devotion to the project. May Elune guide your path.

    [HELP] war kick maccro

    Zerfx beat me to it.
  11. The suggestion, while valid, would be impractical due to the fact that the quantity of players who queue is not high to begin with and this would induce a further strain. Simpler solution would be better, say, if losing a BG rewards more experience than it does now so that even if you repeatedly lose (reasons being irrelevant) you know that you will still get something out of it as in that you won't feel like your time has been wasted. Twinks who like to dominate and need to feed their ego have fun, twinks who enjoy a good "war" have fun and levelers feel that the time went along good enough, won or lost.

    Option to disable world PVP

    Due to crazy work schedule I am not raiding at all and thus during my available past times I level up either solo (questing) or together (group RDF / group queue never-to-come-BGs). So far I have encountered zero problems but few STV/Tanaris skirmishes (then again I am a PvPer so I took care of business, and besides, if 80s come, it's all the more fun when five guildies come to camp them at location and GY, and they never bother you ever again) and most either Horde or Alliance (I am leveling on both factions) are passive. If you want to quest in pace, go to 1-60 zones which are not popular PvP hubs. 60-70 endure it. 70+ if you don't have flying, well, endure it? You can always team up with other people. On the hard point, if you are here to quest, change zones and/or come back at higher level. If you want to level up in peace, find RDF groups and voila, problems are solved. Just don't find retards.
  13. Yup. Haste as equip stat, has spirit (inferior crit), it's one of the best items to get for T7.
  14. Sorry for the late reply @Hyaerk, I wasn't available. To be honest with you, I have no idea. I really don't know for certain, I have to admit that I never bothered to delve into that since the information is not distinct. Blizzard was never clear in explanations of base damage or modified damage, with only few exceptions. By my guess its the standard one, taken into account after all the bonuses, since the damage of Arcane spells is increased by 15%, its not per a single spell. So by my guess it's the modified one, but I really don't know for certain. Sorry.

    About the PvP status of the server

    It depends from week to week and the day of logging in. When Sunwell has 3x exp event, you get an influx of "naked" 80s in BGs and thus the weight of victory becomes heavier if your side has more naked ppl (ironically naked ppl can still do wonderful things if played right, but no). Wintergrasp DEFENSE is often lost from either faction due to players not mounting the cannons at base, instead, they all go south and lose the game within 5min. Wintergrasp OFFENSE is often failed because people don't wait those 5sec for someone to get rank and because rarely anyone defends the south. Team of 5-10 players is oftentimes capable of guarding the south, ensuring 16 vehicles. But no. Battlegrounds depend on the time of day. Both factions do some premades on the weekly basis. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, yet I haven't experienced any total dominance, apart from when the enemy team has a premade AND your team is filled with the kind of players that ignore objectives or are bad players such as paladins who don't use Sacred Shield, Cleanse, AoW procs to heal or Hand spells to support their team, as personal worst examples. So in a nutshell, there's no weekly DOMINANCE happening, just varying times in the day and the day itself. And besides, why on Azeroth would you ever listen to kids crying on the forums? Play what you find fun , find people to do premades with and have fun!
