I never said we SHOULD allow runes or cards in colo. All I said, is that by your criteria, they should be since they are available to everyone.
You are the person confusing availability and balance.
Let me make it simple for you with an easy example about the difference between "balance" and "availability".
Everyone has access to Inverse of Ruins in colo. It is "available" to everyone, and by YOUR logic, this is "balanced".
Now let's look at two characters with Inverse.
Priest + Inverse = AoE freeze. That's it. It's basically no different than Eremes or any other stunner.
Sorc + Inverse = Almost constant double damage for ALL sorcs in colo thanks to lightning spells being doubled on on frozen targets.
What other class can achieve near constant double damage with ANY pet?
How are pets "balanced" if one pet makes one class waaaaay more overpowered than others?
So my only point has ever been, that is was ignorant of you to be rude to that guy a few posts back who mentioned pets being unbalanced since you can't even distinguish between balance and availability.
I'm not even going to get into what changes I'd prefer in colo.
And, yeah, I'm a caster. But as with pretty much everything else you've rebutted--you're just insisting I've made arguments I'm not making. Like how does me saying Inverse makes sorcs godly support your claim that I'm only interested in balancing pets to suit my own classes' needs? They're already in my favor!h
Ok, so, your argument doesn't really apply to colo as much as it does to general PvP. Don't be two faced and say being OP in WoE and duels is fine, but colo isn't. Because colo is as balanced as Dolly Parton.
Your argument is that a certain pet makes a class OP. Let me direct you to the general pet thread http://forums.warppo...pet-discussion/
Isn't that so much easier we got you into the right area? Post there to your hearts content about pet bias.
Oh, and about this sentence "I never said we SHOULD allow runes or cards in colo. All I said, is that by your criteria, they should be since they are available to everyone." By your criteria, nothing should be allowed in Colo. You see, what you missed about what I said was PET ARE ALLOWED. EVERYONE CAN USE PETS. It's not the idea that we need to make runes and cards work; THEY DON'T. No need to even mention these things, I have no clue what you were trying to reference here. You're adding a third leg to this argument that just throws the whole thing out of whack.
The worst part is, you're picking one thing out of my arguments to have a problem with. For example, you totally ignored when I pointed out colo is bad for lowbies from the start, because of their lack of skill points. You were worried it would be out of whack for them because lvl 50 people would have pets only obtainable at a high level. For you, it's like people in Africa are starving and have no shoes. Lets give them shoes cause I like shoes. One problem down, 99% of the issue to go.
I wish I could pick and choose like you, I'd be an eight foot tall trillionaire with his own planet and personal army of greek gods.
Add a pony to that too, while I'm dreaming.
