Naxxramas in 1.11 and a simple wee comment...

Yesterday it was confirmed that Naxxramas will be in 1.11, or rather, scheduled to be in that patch from producer Shane Dabiri . Here's the list of goals for 2006:
- In patch 1.11: Naxxramas! – the massive necropolis floating above Stratholme, home to Kel’Thuzad
- More content tailored for casual level 60 players
- Greater focus on outdoor PvP
- Talent improvements for the remaining classes; Shaman, Rogue and Mage
- More world events and holidays
- Fee-based character transfers
- Improved forums and web sites, including more interactive content such as the PvP Honor rankings and the Ahn’Qiraj War Effort pages
- A new data centre and continual upgrading of the existing ones to accommodate for the tremendous growth in Europe
This patch is most likely 2-3 months away from now. Wierd, right? Cause I could swear that Kel'thusad had the Book of Medivh which is needed to open the Dark Portal, which in turn is where you have to travel to experience most of the content in the expansion pack. Hmm?

Oh, and that talk about Eyonix's "Troll elsewhere, Palli", if you haven't heard. There's plenty of outrage on this and my stance is this:
- I don't think the original poster trolled. Annoying for some people? Yes. I thought it was more of a sly, sarcastic way of saying "don't expect much, cause I know".
- Eyonix comments was unnecessary and in my opinion the same level as the person who he quoted, if not even more unnecessary. The matter of fact that he had to go defensive to explain why he said it reveals that he had realized it was an stupid thing to say. Since CMs can never delete what they say they'll have to explain it and defend it or just ignore the criticism and continue. Eyonix chose defending and got cornered down in to a semantics battle.
- By using the word "Palli" it will be interpreted as-if it was directed to the entire Paladin community, once again bolstering on the part that the CMs just don't give a darn about having a nice relationship with the Paladins.
- There's always the scenario that Eyonix wouldn't even care about giving that comment if the person who he quoted wasn't a Paladin, which makes you think about the status of the relationship between the CMs and the Pallies.

Further proof that Blizzard hates Paladins.

I don't get it. Why do these people hate a class in their own game? Do these CMs draw straws to see which class they represent, and the short straw is "paladins"?

Just allow all paladins to convert their toons to another class with equivalent equipment, and get rid of the class, already.

I wonder if I went and Trolled the Priest boards with a "you guys are fine, healing and most DPS in the game, any change is over powered" ala Ella and see if Eyonix defends me as a devils advocate.

It would never happen. Blizzard CM's don't admit to mistakes. Look at thier track record...players find a way to pull a DM boss without his friends. It's an exploit. OOCR made certain encounters easier, blizzard even makes it a hint on the website. In later encounters they change things to prevent it to a high degree. But now it's labled an exploit and gets a heavy handed fix. FD + Drinks = Hunters staying in longer fights with sustained DPS.

This doesn't work in alot of boss fights and now they have to take advantage of JoW. This is so going to lead to more Horde screaming pretty soon I suspect. So either JoW is getting nerfed or Shamans are getting an upgrade to mana tide totem. Yea! More shaman buffs!
