Indeed, other torrents work just fine. Not sure if there's something special about this one.

Well most BT clients have user-configurable port settings (or just pick a random one) so it's likely that whatever port-forwarding you have set up will not apply to the Blizzard BT client.

Here, grabbed this off their site:

The Blizzard Downloader requires that ports 3724 and 6112 be open. It can also benefit from having ports 6881 through 6999 open.
Hope that helps. I'm sure that the majority of problems users are having with download speeds stem from an improperly configured firewall.

Ninjaman, what is more important in armor for a warrior Strength, Stamina, Agility and Spitrit. I say Strength and Stamina but others say Strength and Agility.
AGI/STA imo,since agi improves your chance to cirt+will effect your tanking ability,STR is over rated.

Um...no. 20 STR = 40 attack power which translates roughly to 2.86 DPS. Considering that the average high level warrior has about a +120 to two of his "main" stats, we can safely assume that he gains a 17.16 boost to his DPS through strength enhancing items. This makes quite a large difference in single hits as well, which is important for instant attacks. 20 Agility gives a 1% increased crit chance, so 6% crit boost is a reasonable expectation. So, if you were crit oriented with Axe spec, you'd have like a 15% base crit rate, so 21% crit from +Agi items. Basically, in 20 hits, you'd crit one extra time. Not at all worth the loss in damage.

Ya, rogues and what not whos heads are bloated by their abilities give all sorts of advice to other melee classes but warriors need strn/stam. I do put agi in muy cloak or finger as a buff but all my armor is strn/stam. The easiest way to see how it works is to put on different items as see how your attack power increases or decreases. Then go kill something.

From what I have read SS has been nerfed, I've also heared defensive stance is either nerfed or bugged, you now deal 20% less dmg instead of 10, Blizzard has yet to comment on any of this.

Here is a list of the concerns brought up by players.

1. Defensive Stance now has a 20% damage output reduction. Not sure if it still reduces damage taken by 10% or if that has been changed to 20%.

2. The toughness talent now seems bugged. A full 5 point talent should increase armor by around 10%. It seems to only increase it by around 6-7%.

3. The Sweeping Strikes talent skill no longer has the same comobo effect with cleave that it had before. The extra attacks from Sweeping Stikes + Cleave has been reduced by 1 total attack, and the secondary attacks deal less overal damage.

4. The flurry proc now only seems to provide an increase on two attacks.

7. Intercept may be bugged. It stuns the user and the target on some uses.

9. Battle shout seems to give less bonus then the tool tip says.

Unfortunately I doubt Blizzard will EVER comment on any of this. I've omitted the stupid ones that really do not matter. As for 9, if you check your profile whilst battle shout is on you will see the increase is what it says in the tooltip, it is just the buff icon that is wrong. The stacking with cleave and ss was a "bug" but blizzard said they were going to leave that as it was, my main concern is less dmg with ss and defensive stance, we still have to cause dmg to create aggro.

I thought you could not used ss in defence stance? Maybe I just stance dance so much that I get confused.

He means both have had their damage reduced, seperately.

Im on shadowsong and its the same way, maybe even worse. Tarren mill and the crossroads are always under attack. Lower level players have a tough time getting or turning in quests because of lag or the NPC is dead (which is most of the time). Being level 36 I really want to help out, but its difficult when fighting people 20 levels higher than you.

Blizzard have screwed up WOW with the honor system, now all you see is massive mobs of horde or alliance looking for a small group to gank over and over, yeah honor.

To make it worse, on my server the alliance outnumber the horde 4 to 1. It's almost impossible to keep they at bay when your so vastly outnumbered.
