Multistrike looks like a fun stat. I like the design theory behind all these new stats. Stats that make your character play different rather than just +gooder. Good on them.

Did we read the same article? Versatility is LITERALLY +gooder the stat. Multistrike is crit with a different name. The rest are minor effects like 5% less AOE damage, whoop de fricken do.

You're one of those people who doesn't have fun at parties do you?

Multistrike looks fun in the same vein it's fun to see GIANT CRIT NUMBERS WEEE! If I shit out three fireballs instead of one, that's cool. If I cast a fireball and just see lots of numbers at the same time, that's cool too.

But yes you're right about the Versatility stat. Shrug.

This game is old as fuck, who really cares anymore?

Certainly not the developers, or they'd have done something by now. This is taking forever.

Multi-strike is really a super-crit, as the more you have, the more likely you are to do extra damage.  It'll run into the same problem that CoH had with resistance or defense nearing 100%, only with damage instead of mitigation.  If you can get both multi-strike and versatility, it's game over.

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

I don't have a problem with versatility as a stat, it's just boring. They may as well call it "Also Mastery".

Yeah but WOW is a simple game for most people. If I were playing, I like the idea of seeing MOAR numbers flashing on my screen. But I'm a simple kind of guy too. Toss in crit and you have MOAR BIGGERS. \o/

LOL

So apparently the Blizzard devs put a bunch of time and effort into making Karabor and Bladespire the Alliance and Horde capital cities in Draenor-2. I say "apparently" because I haven't been paying attention up until now.

But today, on the day that WoFWAB beta invites go out, this toolbox goes on twitter to announce that the Alliance and Horde capitals will both be what amount to shanty towns in the PvP zone known as Ashran.

The evidence keeps mounting that these blockheads hate their playerbase.

Maybe it's their way of forcing everyone to build up their stronghold?  Shit. Can't go to the Capitol.  Stronghold ahoy!

Or are the strongholds entirely uses cosmetic bullshit with no services?  I really haven't cared to read up as I already know I'm not buying.

Strongholds aren't what they originally were going to be.  Think of them like quest hubs where each zone you get to choose whether to build quest hub A or B.

Or is it like AC2 (I think it was AC2) where players had to dump resources into the hubs to build them up? So lazy folk just wait till it's all done and pffft and meh?

The strongholds were the only fucking new feature in the expansion.

This is literally turning into a $60 content patch.

Wow, they've fucked this up in a way I never saw coming. I fully expected them to pour all their efforts into strongholds since that was their only real expansion selling point. The PR machine will have to turn hard now.

What? No. That is just part of it. The stuff in each zone, where you get to choose something, are outposts of your main base. Your main base is still going to be a big fat grind that you'll customize and level up. You choose what buildings are in your base, you recruit followers, all of that stuff is still in.

Or at least, the idiots making this thing haven't yet gone on twitter to announce that they're scrapping it so that you can really enjoy world PvP, if only you'd give it a chance you guys!

So this is going to be...a PVP focused expansion???  If this is true then the outcome is going to be worse, much worse, than Cata ever was.  Do they NOT know who comprises their player base? Facepalm

I didn't even know that was a thing. Did it get hyped at Blizzcon, or something?

I think there was supposed to be an optional garrison building that let you do it. It was kept low-key and wasn't really hyped, but it was all my better half gave a shit about.

After poking around, it seems that some people have been successful in getting their pre-orders refunded by going through Bliz's support channels, though the action locks out your boosted-90 character until you give the money back or buy the expansion later.

I submitted a ticket just a little bit ago...will report back what happens.
