Its a fact of life for most mages, warlocks, boomkin etc. If you’ve got an AOE spell and you’re AOEing a large (such as say… the mana wyrms in Magister’s Terrace???) group, you see a reduction in how hard you hit. Interestingly enough we were playing around in Magister’s Terrace last night. I’d always wanted to tank that room with the Wyrms and see how high a feral tank’s DPS gets on that. Well the good news is I found out I do 3700 DPS pulling the first half of the room and swiping away. The bad news is I looked up my hunter’s DPS and she did 9800 DPS. Yes… you read that right. 9800 DPS. Hmmmm could be a bug, but typically AOE’s suffer from a decrease in effectiveness against huge groups like that. 9800 tells me that it saw zero reduction in strike damage for that massive group of wyrms. Wow… that’s pretty damned powerful.
On an administrative note, sorry for the silence this weekend, something about the stomach flu just doesn’t encourage one to sit at a computer and compose deep and insightful blog posts.
Updates though on how things have been flowing. I’ve finally gotten my druid up to 68. In addition I’ve got him set up with Inscription up to 350. Beyond researching his daily minor inscriptions he’s all set and ready to trip the starlight fantastic in the expansion. Is it so wrong to have two druids as your main characters????
Now its just a hard burn on helping my wife achieve her goals. She’s got two characters within striking distance of 68. She has a hunter hanging out at 65 and a mage who just dinged 60 last night. I’m really trying to make sure she can participate with everyone else in the expansion. Its coming at the expense of my working on the Argent Dawn stuff, but still, I’d much rather she be able to play and enjoy being up with everyone else in the expansion rather than struggling to play catch up. Plus having two characters gives her a lot of choice. When I started in BC, I had one who was level 60 or even close to 60. Having two means if she’s loving her mage, she can play her mage… if she’s loving her hunter that day, its time to kick some teeth in using a bow or a gun!!!
