Well, why'd you fail and die? That could be you, casting the mass res!

You have a disturbing obsession for controlling people's lives

But Nazja only the power of the light can res people. They shouldn't be able to do it.

Resurrection is a game mechanic. It doesn't matter who does it or what belief structure they adhere to in RP or lore.

The only reason why it's even called "death" is so that everyone fears it and attempts to avoid it.

But Blizzard is suppose to put distinction like that into the game because this is a role playing game. It doesn't really mean much if it is just a numbers game with pretty lights and sounds. I think giving mass ress to everyone that has a high enough level in a guild was a lame change. The guild abilities in general are lame.

I liked being special because I was one of the ressers. What is wrong with that?

Kellick do you really support mass resurrection? Do you not think it is silly to see a warrior resing people? I really liked all the flavor the game had earlier on.

Yeah, I miss priest racials too, but their absence doesn't change my immersion within the game. The story ignores game mechanics all the time (language barriers between the factions almost never come up, for example), so it's not terribly surprising to me to see a game mechanic at play.

It doesn't make sense that goblins can argue 100% of all vendors regardless of race to drop their prices for them just by virtue of being goblins. Does it make an interesting racial feature? Sure. Does it make a lick of sense? Nope.

Not having mass resurrection in my heroic 25m on Blackfuse would hurt my soul. I already have to do the painstaking wipes to learn it, running down the same hallwayx200 instead of like x125 helps.

If you are having problems RP think of it like a goblin priest buy a mass rez. It is a guild perk high up in the tier, so the guild bought one. Tada!

TBH, I dislike the spell too, from a lore standpoint. That said, I probably should say the same for all the other resurrection spells. While resurrections are possible in this universe, they are supposed to be a rare occurrence.
