Yes, GC is right – As am I
May 11, 2010 5 Comments
I assume by now, judging by the number of messages I’ve received, that everyone has seen Ghostcrawler’s latest post concerning Death Knights and Cataclysm, which appears as follows:
There’s no question that GC obviously knows what he’s talking about, but does that make me wrong when I still have the Mind Freeze change listed in my Cataclysm Notes?
No, it does not.
Look at Mind Freeze from Wowhead, and note the spell ID. Understand that all of Wowhead’s database is that of the current patch.
Now, look at Mind Freeze from Sigrie, and note the spell ID. Understand that all of Sigrie’s database is that of the leaked alpha client.
Notice the similarity? Both spells have the same ID.
So, yes, Ghostcrawler may be right in saying that in the expansion Mind Freeze will still cost runic power, and that’s likely already the case in whatever version of the expansion he has available to him. But for at least one build of Alpha, Mind Freeze did indeed cost a Frost rune, and considering that version is all that was leaked, that’s all we can go by.
Until a build is pushed and revealed which shows it going back to runic, I intend to keep the change in the notes. Not because I think GC is possibly wrong – there’s no doubt in my mind that he’s right – but because there’s nothing available to the public to support his words, while the leaked client which everyone can see clearly says a Frost rune.
Please note, the intention of this post is simply to explain why the change is remaining on the list, nothing more. Just figured I would dash off a quick comment on it.
Until my next, regular piece – have a good afternoon.
