Ask Gauss

Wow, it is Sunday already, seems like the weekend disappeared into nowhere like it was nothing. It is still Sunday though so doesn't mean you woke up Monday morning and missed this week's edition of Ask Gauss. The post of the week where I get put on the spot and answer all the questions you have thrown at me throughout the week. If you are still in doubt how to ask such a question. There is a link on the top right of the page or you can just email me at So with that out of the way let's get to it.

What are your thoughts on the blue post refering to final making PvP and PvE the best in each specific situation?

Well if you didn't see it, here it is

One of our upcoming goals in Mists of Pandaria is to make the gap between the overall DPS/healing of both PvE and PvP items smaller. In fact, we have design plans for new PvP combat mechanics that will make PvP gear and weapons markedly better in PvP than equivalent level PvE gear and weapons.The overall goal is to reduce the barrier for crossing between PvE and PvP (and vice versa), as well as to also ensure that PvP gear is the best in PvP, and PvE gear is the best in PvE. More details on these upcoming changes will be posted as they become available.

Honestly? They have tried this before, you know when they invented resilence. The problem is and has always been stat allocation. For particular classes, which don't need as many PvP stats they could get away with using PvE gear for the damage or healing bonuses. I really don't see people having to PvP or having to PvE to get the best gear available to them for their particular situation without Blizzard making gear specific. Meaning "Only usable in arenas and battlegrounds"

Turning off enchants, your thoughts?

I remember seeing recently that a Blue replied to an older thread talking about turning off enchants effects. To me if Blizzard has put in Transmogging then they have to implement this option. Many people have put a lot of effort into designing there armor that fits them and don't want it messed up just because an enchant effect. The other argument is why can I not transmog an enchant effect if I like its effect? Executioner comes to mind on. Now that might be pushing it, but you never know.

So FFXIII-2 this week.

Not really a question, but I will be all over that.

There you go, this week's edition of Ask Gauss. Hope you all got something out of it. For those waiting for it. I want to know your thoughts on turning on and off enchants and if it is something Blizzard should both implementing.


  1. I am all in favour of turning off enchants some of them are jsut stupid looking

  2. In the beginning, a lot of systems utilized their very own protocols, due to which garages had to get a significant quantity of equipment to research even a single auto. To correct this, some benchmarks were being place into location, which permitted motor vehicle manufacturers and garage homeowners to produce and use common scania vci2 instruments for motor vehicle service.
