    And on the topic of keeping gems because you’re not sure if to use them… I still have Librams of Tenacity from vanilla in my bank… because I was always thinking I’d get better gear.

    great show as always. unforunatly your blizzcon party will be on at 9am on a workday for me, so i’ll have to watch the repeat later :/ silly americans with there silly timezones.

    also as a (priest) healer the Tier 13 bonuses look pretty meh. unless they change the abilities they relate too, or the new fights have very spesific mechanics, there going to be very weak and/or unreliable.

    Awesome show as always.  I have lost hope that my question will be on PST because you guys basically said exactly what my question was on Legendary. (about the set bonus theory crafting)

    So, I would love to see Legendary’s time changed,  from a personal stand point I can never watch Legendary live because I raid Thursdays starting at 5pm PDT.  I also know that when a show moves and opens up a time slot for one person, 10 more people can not watch the show because you overlapped their raid.  Either way, I will keep watching your epic shows from the archive and catch every live show I can.  It is so much fun to hang out with the community(sp), and watch a “TV channel” that I care about and can actually enjoy.  The most amazing part is knowing that if someone from the chat says something so amazingly epic that it could change the tide of the show, or even just giving info or corrections, that is seen by the hosts. 

    It really is an amazing thing you guys have going here based on just donations, sponserships, ads and merchandise as well as what ever else you guys have coming in.  Great shows, I enjoy every show that you guys have on here and I am looking forward to a GW2 show and a PS3 show.  Also looking forward to the LoL show (maybe) to see what that whole thing is about.

    It’s a SP axe Lore, a SP dagger would be a loss. I’m surprised Urg got better numbers off the normal VPLC than APS, but it’s funny the casters haven’t murdered him for it.

    The enh changes are much needed and this exact change has been suggested for a long time, since they fixed palys with essentially the same system. Both the Flametongue imbue and Mental Quickness change are great, with the FT change fixing a scaling issue as well.

    The wind shear nerf is for resto PvP reasons and it was done TERRIBLY. GC’s stated intent was for resto to not have this crazy interrupt, but guess what? THEY CAN REACH IT! PvP resto has to sacrifice some throughput and mobility for it, but it can be reached AND it screws over both enh PvE and PvP in the process. The community has suggested that this change be done in the spec masteries and not in talents, as Reverb has just become mandatory for all flavors of the shaman class.

    I really do not want 4.3 or SWTOR days before Christmas as I, like some people, have shit to do. Now with SWTOR I have no choice on the matter, but I really do hope Blizz thinks really hard on this and goes with what is better for the players than their egos.

    Matt, I tried to use the logic of the 4p’s being them testing out news toys and got eaten alive by rabid prot wars who hate their lot in life, I could use an assist if you don’t mind losing limbs.

    I’ve always liked the few black dragons you get to talk to, they are really self-serving dicks and I love them for it. It’s just too bad the rogues get to have all the fun…I’m not bitter…nope…just a sad enh shaman over here…/cry.

    A new time would be great, I used to be able to watch you guys live after raid and now I’m still raiding while you are on.

    Enhancement has been scaling horribly since the end of wrath and into cata.  There’s been the issue with the spellpower weapons since the beginning of cata.  I haven’t looked into the changes yet as I don’t really play wow anymore but from the sounds of it this is a change that’s been needed for a long long time. 

    I do find it wierd that he would use a spellpower dagger.  As it was when I was still raiding just before firelands, that would be a dps loss.  And I have simmed different setups out of curiousity, and the DPS weapons that keep winning are the axes of baleroc or w/e.  I can be fairly certain that Urg is very close to BiS minus the heroic rag pieces.  He may want to sim those new pieces and see for sure if they are actually giving him a dps increase.

    The spellpower trinket off of normal rag is second best however.

      Urg is using the axe, not a dagger, Lore just misremembered (I checked ). To my knowledge, the H VPLC off of Rag is BiS with any flavor of MR, but normal VPLC is below APS. Even the H VPLC to APS is only around a 50 dps upgrade so I’m quite surprised he has one, unless every caster in  their guild already has one.

    PvPer’s don’t think about the gems like mike said and that is because we get 3 set upgrade per patch on average and the time for most people to get that next full set takes a week if your really good a couple weeks if your not so good and the time in between the two gets shorter if you gem and enchant it and we get the best in slot sets faster then most PvE players so we are done faster. That’s my thoughts on the PvPer’s gems I could be wrong.

    I forsee the same BS that they pulled with firelands.  They will give us the 5 mans first then delay the dragon soul raid to counter swtor. Wouldnt surprise me.

    Though I can guarantee that if they release 4.3 as a whole to try and counter swtor, it will be a complete failure.  People have been anticipating swtor forever, and wont stay for blizzards rehashed garbage especially after having been forced to wait 6 months on a crap 7 boss instance like firelands.  Having 5 mans that drop gear that is better itemized than FL on top of that is the cherry on top of the shit sundae.  

    And if at Blizzcon it is revealed that the next xpac is a bunch of fucking pandas bouncing around as a playable race.. that will be the next board being nailed into the shape of a coffin while a newly hired stone mason starts carving WOW into a rock shaped like a headstone.

    people will have already started to play swtor before the 20th release date. bioware has said that if you preorder, you will get early access to the game, allowing you to create and play your character before the official release date.

    this being said, if blizz is lining up 4.3 to correspond with tor, my best guess would be late november early december. early access will probably drop a week to a week and a half before the official release date so blizz will probably drop 4.3 the tuesday before that. im sure someone on blizzard’s board has preordered tor so that they can know when early access will hit

    Although change is hard, Matt is a great host and a welcome addition to my favorite internet show. The biggest problem with adding hosts to “Legendary” in the past has been that they couldn’t keep up with the witty banter we’ve come to expect from Baka and Lore and in turn dropping the energy level of the episode. Matt, on the other hand, was totally game and passed my test with flying colors. Great episode!

    With the pally change yes I think Blizz is one step closer to making all healers the same.  A holy pally is almost a disc priest at this point and especially with this change.
