We know healer scaling was mentioned, but what about damage scaling? It has just gotten absurd how quickly damage scaled in MOP.
Currently, in Mists, level 90 characters have a relatively high amount of base health, and a relatively low amount of base damage or healing on their abilities.As a result, your health from Stamina doesn’t increase as quickly as your damage or healing from Attack or Spell Power.To use some made up numbers for perspective, your gear might account for 80-90% of your damage, but only 40-50% of your health.That’s why, as the quality of your gear increases by hundreds of item levels over the course of an expansion, we see such a high swing in damage output compared to health pools.
For Warlords, we’re simplifying that by making health and spell effectiveness scale a lot more linearly.Base health is being lowered dramatically (and the effectiveness of Stamina increased) to the point that as damage or healing goes up, health pools go up alongside them.That lets us ensure that PvP gameplay at low gear vs high gear feels relatively similar.
On top of that, we’re increasing health pools in general — they’ll be much larger in comparison to the damage players are able to deal to each other than they are today.Resilience and Battle Fatigue were added because without them, an attack or heal would account for massive chunks of a player’s health bar.With higher health, that same spell doesn’t have as big of an impact.
Great WOW Power Leveling Tips:
First off, install good add-on like Quest Helper. At the time of writing this you can get it for a simple donation to the creators.
Not only will it expose the most effective time management techniques to complete all your quests but it will show you your statistics, a database of quests, monsters, and items and it will shows you your precise location in the game.
It also works out the quickest route to complete all your quests helping you gain experience in the shortest possible thus preventing you from rushing round aimlessly like a blind bug in a bottle.
The second tip to help you power level is ‘quest management’, a very important part of playing the game. You must manage the quests against the amount of space you have available in your backpacks and banks.
When your space is full, you need to decide whether to sell, destroy or trade items to get more space.
Manage the quests in your logs carefully and decide on the correct quests to focus on completing.
Too many gamer mistakenly do one quest, return, and then collect their prize before moving to the next quest. This is not time efficient at all when it comes to moving your way up the levels.
For power leveling well you ought to accept as many quests as possible in your area and then utilize the assistance of say Quest Helper to finish all of your quests efficiently.
Finally, ensure whatever you do you have a game plan. Like anything in life, if you plan ahead you’ll get there much quicker.
If you really want to be a masterful WOW player you need to seriously plan ahead. Research carefully the skills you need as well as the tools and guides available and get yourself a good plan of action.
The warrior is the cornerstone of any successful group.They are always the front line of defense when raiding and are largely responsible for knocking out most of the damage.Lovingly referred to as a “meat shield” by the casters in the back of the group, the warrior is often the deciding factor between success and failure.These are some of the key things you need to take into consideration when planning on WOW power leveling a warrior.
These represent our best recommendations for a power leveling build：
Level 15 – Juggernaut – This will reduce your charge cooldown to 12 seconds instead of 20 seconds. This will help you kill things even faster.
Level 30 – Impending Victory – This thing is pure gold for any spec. It’s a decent attack that doesn’t increase your aggro that much. In addition it does a small heal at the same time and has a very short cooldown. Decent attack, minimal aggro, healing and a short cooldown? What’s not to love.
Level 45 – Disrupting Shout – Not all that powerful while you’re leveling but this area interrupt spell is perfect when fighting a group of casters. Cast this and you will disrupt them and silence them. A great thing to use to protect your group.
Level 60 – Dragon Roar – Another great group fighting spell. Instant cast and damages everything close by as well as knock them down.
Level 75 – Mass Spell Reflection – Give everyone in your party spell reflection. The next spell cast on them is reflected back on the caster. This can be very annoying when you are running battlegrounds.
Level 90 – Avatar – A great way to free yourself from all roots and snares. It transforms you into a bigger, badder version of yourself and ups your damage output by 20%.
In this new Warlords of Draenor trailer，we knew level 90 boosts were coming. Blizzard’s pushing the boosts as a reason to buy. You can escape the endless WOW power leveling desert and finally play with your friends by buying Warlords — which is all well and good, but it does strike us as a bit odd that Blizzard is promoting the game by suggesting that playing the game up to level 90 is something tedious and awful that you would not want to do.
The obvious highlight of this trailer is gnomes making their cinematic debut. Finally, we see a gnome taking center-stage… as a level 61 wandering aimlessly through Tanaris. (That’s why you haven’t hit level 90 yet, Mr. Gnome — you’re in Tanaris. Maybe if you’d gone through Un’Goro and Silithus and then headed to the Dark Portal you’d have made some progress.) But now that this gnome is finally level 90, we can only assume that we’ll be seeing more gnomes showing up in future, right Blizzard?
I hate to see gnomes cry, but I’m sure tears will flow when his jerkwad friends inform the gnome that there’s no way he’ll be tanking their Raid Party in that crappy insta-90 gear that he’s wearing.
World Of Warcraft became available for pre-order this week.The standard edition is now $49.99 USD. Reactions to the price have covered both extremes and everything in between.
Some don’t care at all — what’s an extra $10? To others, that $10 is a big deal.
Personally, I’m in the fortunate position where $10 won’t break me, but I’m not exactly thrilled with the increase, either. In the last few years, it’s been mentioned more than once by individuals within the game industry that making games has become increasingly expensive over the years. Generally speaking, prices for the games themselves haven’t changed much, or in some cases, gone down. Ignoring issues of inflation, you might have paid more for an NES cartridge in 1987 than you do for a big-title game today in 2014. It might be reasonable to expect a price increase, but Warlords of Draenor is among the first to make it so obvious.
Am I going to buy WOW power leveling? Yeah. Of course. WoW is what I do. But the price tag wants me to look at it like a brand new standalone game, not an expansion pack. Will I get more enjoyment out of Warlords of Draenor or some other big new release? Probably Warlords. A new WoW expansion is likely to last longer than, for example, Watch Dogs, even though I would enjoy both.
How would you level a new character in world of warcraft?
If you are a new player (and therefore have no BOA gear) that means you’ve never done the quests before. Everybody tells you (or at least they did me) “The game really begins once you’ve reached max level (which for me was level 60) and you start raiding.” Silly me believed them.
I’d go to a quest giver and actually (OMG!) read the quest. Basically all the lore is communicated via the quest line. And my guild would whine at me to “hurry up, we need more raid healers” (I was a priest in those days). If I was grouped, the rest of the group would get irritated at my slowness.
But if an NPC wanted me to go kill 60 of something, I wanted to know WHY. If I was going to go out and commit genocide on his behalf, I wanted more reason than just the assumption that he was a crazy, bloodthirsty psychopath.
So you rush through your WOW power leveling, letting much higher level guild mates “run you through dungeons for the XP and gear.” They’re killing stuff so fast it’s all you can do to loot and keep up. And then, since there’s only two of you in there, your bags get full 30 seconds into the run. So you turn off-auto loot and try to only loot the greens-or-better (if you’re an enchanter…otherwise it’s blues-or-better) and the money. And maybe some cloth if you need to level your first aid. Or all the cloth if you’re a tailor. They’re killing bosses while you’re still three rooms behind. You have NO idea what’s going on.
And you get to max level as fast as you can. And then you start raiding. Every damned night it seems. And, eventually you get to the point where you feel like it’s always “same boss, different day.” Sure, you (hopefully) progress through raids, and once in a while it’s actually interesting when you have to learn a new boss fight. But it’s the same basic thing night after night.
In order to download and play Warlords of Draenor when it’s available, you need to have WoW as well as the Mists of Pandaria expansion. The base game, priced at $19.99, now includes the first three expansions’ content. Pandaria, also $19.99, added a new continent to the world with content for level 85-90 characters.
Both the digital and standard editions come with a free boost to level 90 for one character. This boost will be available through the character select screen. After choosing a toon to upgrade, they’ll be instantly upgraded to level 90 and given a set of gear appropriate for their spec and new level. The newly 90 character will also get some other basic items to get them started: 150 gold, 4 Embersilk (22-slot) bags, a stack of 20 food items, and a flying mount. Blizzard illustrated this character boost with a comical trailer this weekend.
Blizzard is also selling these character boosts on their own starting today. You can access them through the in-game store. Each boost costs $60 to purchase.The World of Warcraft website says that Warlords of Draenor should arrive by Fall 2014. The Battle.net shop says to expect the expansion “on or before 12/20/2014.” However, certain regions in the southern hemisphere will have to wait until the following Spring.
While you’ll have to wait awhile for Warlords of Draenor, the character boost included with pre-purchase and the digital deluxe edition extras are available right after you pay. It’s a clever way for Blizzard to give some instant gratification to the pre-purchase process. I’m sure that seeing players riding around on Dread Ravens within the game will inspire a few players to place their order.
Blizzard has released a new trailer for World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor entitled “Wish You Were Here.” The trailer highlights the level 90 character boost included with the expansion pack.
If you purchase Warlords of Draenor, you’ll be able to raise one character up to level 90 instantly. This character will then get a set of level-appropriate gear. If it’s your first character, the game will provide a few abilities to you at first and then unlock the others as you gain familiarity with the class. The exact process by which abilities unlock isn’t clear but the point is, they’ll start off newbies slow rather than just throwing dozens of abilities in their lap and pushing them into the game.
The point of this feature is that it allows players to dive right into the new content for Warlords of Draenor. The expansion pack provides a new planet full of quests and dungeons for level 90-100 characters. The boost therefore makes the expansion more appealing to a former player who’s been gone for years or a complete newbie. They can potentially bypass dozens of hours of world of warcraft power leveling.
Blizzard will also allow players to buy level 90 character boosts separately for $60 in case they want to upgrade multiple characters. They decided to sell the boosts directly so that players don’t have to use awkward methods like buying copies of Warlords of Draenor for multiple accounts and then transferring the new level 90 characters to one account.
Warlords of Draenor is the fifth expansion pack for WoW. In addition to providing new lands for players to explore, it will allow them to create and upgrade their own keep – the first “housing” feature ever introduced to the game. The expansion’s player-versus-player features include spectator and tournament modes.
Draenor will be available for pre-purchase soon through Blizzard’s Battle.net Shop. The level 90 boost will be available immediately after you pre-purchase. If you spring for the Digital Deluxe Edition, you’ll unlock a new mount and pet right away as well. Blizzard hasn’t said when pre-purchases will begin but this trailer suggests that day’s not far off.
World of Warcraft has another dev watercooler out today, this time talking about health (your character’s, not your own), healing, and what the team will be doing to improve related systems come Warlords of Draenor.
For starters, the devs will be doubling player health in the expansion to make characters more durable in PvP. “The net result of these changes is that individual attacks will knock a smaller chunk off of a player’s health pool in PvP, but your survivability in PvE won’t be affected,” Blizzard posted.
Other upcoming changes include reducting base resilience and battle fatigue to practically nil, increasing creature damage, increasing the effectiveness of heals, reducing the power of aborbs, and “making smart heals a little less smart.” Some smaller, cheaper healing skills will also be removed from the game, and a few instant-cast heals are on the chopping block as well.
