Blizzard Removes Permanent 1% Resistance In WoW

Lich King

Yes, I’m something of a World of Warcraft addict (though I like to think I’m on the road to recovery). My main is a mage, which means that I deal a lot of damage, but have the uncanny ability to die very, very quickly. One of my favorite escape tactics involves Frost Nova, which will freeze everyone around me in place. Unfortunately no matter how good my gear is, there’s alway that 1% chance that they will resist it. This is something that Blizzard built into the game, and can be very frustrating at times. However, they have apparently seen enough cause to remove that pesky 1% resist chance.

That’s right, if you’re geared well enough, you’re going to hit your enemies every single time you swing (or cast). This will be coming down the pipe when Wrath of the Lich King hits stores later this year. We still don’t know the release date, but something tells me that I’ll have a re-lapse right around the time of launch.
