This [Guide] should serve to see set pieces in a single picture. It gives the opportunity to see what are each specifics parts of the set quickly and easy. It also help for build creation using the Ring of Royal Grandeur by giving all set on the same page.
With the release of Reaper of Souls, many new level 70 Set are being added which have up to 7 pieces of gear each. I have been making these photomontages to help people to know and recognize each of these set.
Yes, hes an idiot. Just figured I'd post it here to get some lols at his expense :P. Took him about 5 min to finally catch up to it though I just didn't feel like having to upload a longer video so I didn't film it all.
Lvl 60 raiding was hard, though most of that can be attributed to the fact that only one class could REALLY tank (yeah we had some lols with rogues or paladins/druids at points in time) but when you had to get 40+ people online at a specific time several weeknights... It's rough. Especially if you were on an established server with established guilds (which I was) and were to try and start up your own, the top teir players at that time were already in guilds and server transfers which were kinda nonexistent plus you could only have one faction per server.
In MC it was whatever, you really didn't need much coordination outside of a few tanks and a handful of healers, Blackwing lair it got much harder because now it was one person skrews up and everyone dies in quite a few situations, when 15 members of a 40 person raid were basically afk auto shooting anyways, people can disconnect and there was a gear requirement- pots only took you so far- and the gear was actually really hard to get, it took a lot of time to get good stuff. This only got harder for 2.5 and especially for the original Naxx which few guilds even got halfway through in before the first wow expansion, which I really feel is where the game started to get dumbed down hardcore.
It was around the time that only the top guild or so per server had a chance in Naxx and BC was coming out that blizzard started dumbing down and nerfing the content routinely. It got old fast. I personally burnt out because managing a 40 person raiding guild and dealing with all the drama and work that went into that, at the time, was a load of bullshit. It occupied ALL of my time, as if it were a job I was paying to keep, but not getting paid for completing.
Now things are extremely easy. Blizz quickly learned how to trick players into being addicted by rewarding them every step of the way, such is the nature of both an RPG and MMO. People will log into wow and just jump around for hours waiting for their auctions to sell or something, let alone show up to raids in which they have a good shot at gear, and easily but annoying grind gear that any idiot can get if he puts in the hours required and logs in and shows up to a raid.
The instance queue system, which was awesome while leveling up new characters btw, kind of in turn also factored into dumbing down content. If you have the option to pug deathwing, the fact is deathwing is actually going to be made pug-able if he wasn't somehow at first.
After my experiences with WoW, and then reliving them very briefly in another MMO in LOTRO, I can very confidently say that while an MMO may kick ass, it's hard to play without being a total loser in life, and then if it's so easy that anyone can do it, it's not even fun or worth playing. I'm still very excited for diablo 3's release, but it isn't a game that tricks/forces the players into thinking they have a virtual social life and you can take it at your own pace.
That's why I am currently so in love with starcraft 2. I can pick it up and an hour later put it down, then tune into my favorite tournament events for a few hours a few days every month or so, and it's a game of skill, not grind. Yeah the more time you invest the more your skill will increase, but if you have more natural talent or are smarter than other players you can get away with not doing that as much and still get every bit as much out of the game.
