Relatively slow day today. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m busy hard at working trying to answer all of the wonderful questions IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve received in regards to Priests, healing, roles, raiding, gear, mana regen and so forth. I will pack all of this information in an easy to consume format and also produce a TLDR version of it as well. The most anticipated blog post by Matt will arrive on Sunday.
For the mean time, I decided to take a break inside Strand of the Ancients (the new BG). Hopefully I can answer a few pre-emptive questions with some screenshots below.
The (tentative) price of Honor gear at level 80. Also displays my raid pimping goodness. As you can see, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ran the 25 mans more than the 10s (Valor is the 25 badge vs the Heroism which is the 10s). Note the amount of honor on the second shot. I believe that takes into account bonus honor from BGs and me killing other players and healing and all that stuff. Also note my pro Killing Blowness. Megan ainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t got nothing on me!
Top: Honor vendors are no longer instanced.
Bottom: shows Horde armada offloading troops. Also shows a valiant Matticus attempting to hold off said invaders. With a Holy Fire.
Top: Me sitting in a passenger seat attempting to overheal a mage because IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a moron for not de-selecting and activating the auto-self cast. Bottom left health bar shows the health of the vehicle. Contains 3 seats (shown on the far right of the shot). Has 6 speaker setup, all terrain capabilities, GPS tracking, and sports 30 miles to the gallon. ABS needs some work. No iPod support.
Bottom: Screenshot shows the gates being breached. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re trying to stop the Horde offense from breaking in. We have to hold out for a minute.
My ancestor, King Matticidus once said the following:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Give them nothing! But take from themÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ everything!Ã¢â‚¬Â
And take from them we did. We held them to a draw. I suspect more honor would be gained if one side won both Offense and Defensive roles.
