And Now You’re Off on Vacation…

Yes, a bit of Jimmy Buffet. I’m off for a week to Jamaica for some R&R, stealing away from both the construction grind, and perhaps the grind of recruiting, dailies, and the usual. Not to mention, it’s a friend’s wedding, so I’ll be off line for most of the week. However, perhaps a little medetation is what I need to help decide the direction I’m taking my main in. I’ve been trying patch up serious issues in the guild for a bit now, and if things don’t improve, I’m going to face the real conflict of leaving a guild with some awsome people in it, but that’s not headed the direction I’m looking to go in. And frankly, on my server there’s not a ton of guilds who fit the “casual-hardcore” mold – and the thought of the multiple server transfers required makes my wallet quiver with fright. (Yes, I’m an altaholic) Thoughts and suggestions are welcome.
In hunter news, word form the PTR is that our favorite trash downing ability, volley, faces a change in the way maximum damage is calculated. Now, the max damage possible on 10 mobs will be the damage cap overall for volley – so engaging more than 10 mobs at once will reduce tthe amount of damage potential to each mob. While this at first appears to be a nerf, the damage possible will now scale with gear, and make increased damage possible – so I think it’s a small buff. In addition, we’ll now be able to take into account when certain talents have a greater or lesser effect – but I’m not even going to try to do that now, my mind is already on the beach. (Besides, I’m sure the folks over at elitest jerks have already calculated it out.) Combine this with the hidden volley buff to the AP coefficient, and perhaps Volley becomes a bit more useful – although it could be very, very intersting in the new Onyxia encounter.
Next time, I’ll take a look at how we might use the new and improved Misdirect.
