Pandanaconda’s PTR forums posts, please lend your support:



PTR Changes Posts: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

This was mostly rambling so it may take some time for me to timestamp things, if I do at all.

If you have any suggestions comment below. If you liked what you heard then, don’t hesitate to scroll down or to the top and subscribe and support WtW so we can keep adding content like this that the readers, and now listeners, want.

I’m also still looking for a good WtW themed podcast banner image, so feel free to post a link to one below if you’ve got the image abilities.

    Didnt blizzard say they would fix the spirits attacking mobs not in combat, and scale the damage up to be on par with serenity? i know thers a ton of more buggs, but its a start if they do. Might just be whispers or rumer…

    1. Author

      Yes, they said they’d work on fixing the bugs or buffing them to compensate until they can get them fixed.

    I fall into the category of the newcomers to the game and the spec, so you’re free to disregard my opinions as naive, but I’m extremely impressed with how this community is led and holds its own, even against unfair treatment and poor communication. Love the podcasts, love the guides, and looking forward to one day hopefully becoming knowledgeable enough to help give back. Thanks for all you do!

    I would have liked to have an SEFTON tier. Current baseline, wod version or serenity

    at this point, I wouldnt even mind having the OLD SEF, atleast we can control who it goes to… and it wasnt even that hard to use if u had a mouseover macro for it

    1. Author

      The OLD SEF still had the bugs with trinkets and reducing things that it didnt benefit from.

    I feel like the bugs with SEF pale in comparison to the old roll/FSK bug. And how long did those last? Months? I’m sure if they knew how to fix it they would. Feedback on design, scaling, or dps in general, though, should really receive a response from Blizz.

    Hey mate. Long time browser, first time poster. Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in and say regardless of blizzards poor communication and the back lash from a minority of the windwalker I honestly believe that you and panda are doing the best job community representatives can possibly do.

    I’ve played wow since vanilla and can say without a doubt that Monk (specifically Windwalker) is my longest played and most enjoyable class and that your guides and posts have kept me competitive and optimistic about the current and future state of Windwalker.

    I’ll be sure to throw a few bucks your way and ask that you enjoy a few drinks on me and relax knowing that while the vocal minority may lay the blame on you for blizzards poor practices, the quiet majority still stand behind you and appreciate all the work you put in.

      Ditto. Thank you for all of your hard work. Your contribution to the community is well known and I for one will send some funding your way to keep you motivated!

    Hey Babylonius! Another good podcast. I gotta say that I admire and agree with your way of handling things, calmly discussing before taking out the pitchforks and torches. I’m sorry to hear that people are calling you names 🙁 Keep up the good work tho!

    Looking forward to that spreadsheet, would love to work on something like that with fellow monks!
