WoW Patch 4.0.6 – Die Buffs und Nerfs gehen weiter; dazu Alchistein Hotfix

Ein neuer Tag, eine neue Liste an Informationen. Die wohl interessanteste am heutigen Hotfix: Die Alchisteine können nicht mehr disenchantet werden. Schade, dienten doch gerade die Alchisteine vermehrt als Mahlstromkristall-Lieferant. Schaut man sich aber diverse Aktivitäten-Feeds von Gilden im Armory an, wurde dieser „Trick“ wohl von zu Vielen genutzt. Logisch, wie soll man sonst auch derzeit an Splitter kommen, wo doch jedes gute Rezept (und die Rezepte selber) Mahlstromkristalle brauchen? Hier werden in den nächsten Tagen die Kristall-Preise wohl wieder explodieren.

Dazu gab es dann einige Hotfixes an Encountern wie z.B. Atramedes, wo man nun den Raum nicht mehr verlassen und die Gongs auch nicht mehr doppelt spawnen kann. Lustig, schaut man sich Heroic-Kill Videos an, benutzen alle ausnahmslos diese Kreativ-Taktik. Ich bin gespannt wie der Mob nun gekillt wird, wenn die angewandten Taktiken nicht mehr funktionieren. Beim Priester wird weiterhin fleissig rumgebastelt. Gemühtsruhe verlängert nun nicht mehr die Chakra-Dauer, sondern reduziert den Cooldown selber. Ok, bei einer Minute Laufzeit ist es so rum besser, damit man schnell von Gruppen- auf Singletargetheal wechseln kann, ohne im Chakra CD festzuhängen.

Zudem wurden die Mats für die Fischmähler gesenkt, so dass diese nun nur noch die Hälfe an Fischen brauchen, was richtig nett ist, da man nun weniger Zeit beim Angeln verbringen muss.
