I'm very predictable.

Or just lazy. I'd rather not reestablish myself on a new toon, I don't have the strength.

Time to get down and dirty with Unholy.

The grass most definitely was not greener on the other side.

I'm glad I figured it out a day later instead of a month later.
I have been in that same boat more than once, I know how you feel.

As much as I want to try unholy, my mind is melting when I try to read this. I'm gonna have to work so hard. Frost is uber easy so I'm not used to working D:

Although you are correct about the undead vs. orc racials, I would like to add that the undead racial actually benefits from our mastery giving more damage and healing. So realistically I would say they are equal.

Doesn't the size of Necrotic Strike's absorb come from how much attack power you have? For me, that's the biggest selling point for going Orc, while pet damage and everything else seem like cake.

In random BGs (yeah, I know, who cares), I've seen Touch of the Grave be up to 6% of my total damage. It'll hit in the low-to-high teens depending on gear, and the heal is on par with Rune of the Fallen Crusader's with an even slightly better chance to proc. But slow, over-time-it-adds-up pressure is not really what PvP is about right now. Blood Fury in conjunction with things like NS, Dark Transformation, and Gary makes more sense to me. So I wouldn't say TotG is negligible, just that it's style of dealing damage is probably more suited for PvE, where slow and steady wins the race.

Yes. That !@#$ is passé.
I might make a PvP compilation video, but I'm through with all that other stuff. I didn't find it fun to do after a while and decided to rid myself of the burden completely.

I feel good, like a weight's been lifted. Now I can concentrate on actually playing the game.

I can understand that, though please don't feel like you owe someone something, if ya don't want to do it, don't do it :D

the only moment i ever choose RW in arenas is against KFC.. stopping Stampede for 6 seconds and forcing the warrior to stop attacking you for a few seconds or use his trinket can be the difference between victory and defeat.. so ye it can used as a "get off me bro" button against melee, but none of that applies to casters.. if u choose RW against a caster cleave u are not prepared to face life..

Soul Reaper: Our execute; be sure to use this when the enemy will dip below 35%, even if it doesn’t kill them you’ll receive a generous haste bonus for a short time;


wait what, really?
