WoW Musings

In WoW we are thinking of making a 3v3 Arena team. I'm honestly not sure who I'd play (Paladin or Druid) for this. My brother (DK), Dire (On his Mage I presume) and I will make up the team and naturally I am the only one with healers. I'm still in the process of thinking about it, we won't start until next season anyhow.

There are some changes in resilience coming up, I am wondering how this will affect PvP. If you haven't heard anything about it, continue reading ;)

We are currently in the process of applying a hotfix to buff resilience. While some modifications may be made, we intend to have this buff in effect for the remainder of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.

The change will double the value of resilience in reducing damage done by players. So depending on their current amount of resilience, characters might experience a 10 to 20% decrease in damage taken from other players. The critical strike chance and critical strike damage reduction components of resilience will remain unaffected by this change.

We are also aware of the possibility that this change will make healing in PvP too difficult to counter. While we are not making any immediate changes to address this issue, we have prepared some further changes that will allow us to quickly deploy a PvP-only healing adjustment if we feel it is warranted.

We will be applying this change very soon while we are between Arena seasons so we can evaluate how it works in multiple PvP scenarios for the upcoming Arena season, and as we continue to prepare for Cataclysm. As we have mentioned previously, one of the goals for Cataclysm is to have a PvP environment where it is harder to regularly achieve so much damage and healing in relatively few global cooldowns compared to what we currently have in the game. 

You can also read more about it on MMO-Champion.

I've also been curious about the Olympics and if there will be another pet. The last pet for the theme was the Spirit of Competition. has some interesting speculations. I guess we will just have to wait and see!
