When is the movie?

That is what my wife said after watching the World of Warcraft cinematic trailer.

Salud is Immune

In transferring my paladin to a new server: Cairne, I decided to change my name since I am starting a new adventure in a new server. So it is fit to have a new identity.

-Immune

Open for Business

The Cairne Server has opened up their doors for transfers. This was not supposed to happen until Wednesday but I’m not complaining. 😀

I plan on brining over my paladin to join 70 Hunter and 35 warrior.

Good times!

@ Warriors

Don’t be fooled at the new changes in the recent WotLK Beta Build, particularly Titan’s Grip.

I truly believe Blizzard is testing Titan’s Grip damage output then re-adjusting it. In a week or two, Titan’s Grip will be nerfed.

What is Base Mana?

“Base Mana” refers to how much mana your character has before it is modified by Intellect, Enchants and other item effects.

Paladins have a total of 2953 Base Mana at level 70. The total is depended on class only, not on race.

If you would like to know other classes Base Mana, refer to WoWwiki.

Down Goes Downranking!!!!!

Recent News from WotLK, Blue Post

As you may have noticed, in this latest build we have updated spells and abilities using mana. These no longer cost a fixed amount and instead they’re a percentage of your base bana, not including any mana increase from Intellect. For the most part this should mean mana-based spells and abilities are costing roughly the same amount as they do in the live game, though there might be some slight changes either up or down. But we have tried to keep them as close as possible to the same mana cost for a level 70 as they are now in the live game.

What will change though is that lower rank spells will lose their appeal. We have made this mana cost change purely to prevent downranking, which is an unintended technique that we were not at ease with. We’ve previously tried ways to discourage it, but have decided that we’d rather find a solution than continue to find ways to penalise those who choose to downrank. The solution we chose was to make downranking obsolete, encouraging people to always use their highest rank of each spell and nothing else. The highest rank of a mana-based spell or ability will now remain the most powerful effect, but at the same mana cost as earlier ranks.

We’re certain that for some people this will cause a period of readjustment. Hopefully removing a few more of the extra buttons you’ve been pressing will eventually be seen as a good thing; it might also be easier for some people to do their role without having to learn to downrank. We are anticipating such a big change may have some teething problems, perhaps causing balance issues, and we’re all set to deal with them as they arise. In the meantime, we appreciate any comments and feedback related to this change.

RETLOL the Guide

Kristian Williams wrote a very good guide on how to gear and play a Retribution paladin for PVE, PVP and Arenas. The guide is very well maintained with update to date information, which includes WotLK information.

It’s a good read for old and new paladins.
