Whoa. Who would have thought that an article on FFB and use of common slang terms would generate this much hatred back and forth?Discussions of Teabagging might be distasteful to some, and a joke to other. Either way, your personal offense aside, this is not the place to address your moral values or to try and clean the content to meet your standards.WoWInsider is not required to meet any particular standard of speech. And they're repeating such common usages do not endangerous the well being of a child. Any such accusation would be to the initial utterance, in game.You are welcome to rear your child and be the type of parent you choose to be. It is not the requirement of anyone else to live up to, or down to, your standard.As for this column... leave the discusion to the area of Mages and your soapbox to the political or religious arenas. Thanks.--------------------------------------------Now... FFB is something that I guess I will have to try at some point, but I am still having much more fun being able to MOVE with Arcane barrage as my main nuke! Woot!

kenn f said - Now... FFB is something that I guess I will have to try at some point, but I am still having much more fun being able to MOVE with Arcane barrage as my main nuke! Woot!I totally agree with you, after being an immobile fireslinger up until now, being able to actually wield pure magical power AND be able to move around while doing it AND it still turning out a reasonable amount of DPS (ABarrage seems to mirror fireball in most ways, though it does slightly less base damage I've noticed)...I just can't stop. Slow, ABarrage, FB, ABarrage, PoM-(insert normal cast-time heavy nuke here, for me it's fireball), ABarrage, it's just...unprecedented.and yes, it probably doesn't have as much raw DPS as an FFB build, but I"m HAVING FUN with it, much like what Christian said in his disclaimer and what Kenn might've implied in his comment. if you want to try to feel superior in the damage charts then go respec to FFB, but if you want to do that I wonder why you rolled a mage in the first place (if you've got a 70 mage atm chances are you had one before 3.0.2 which means that everybody could out-DPS us then (usual exceptions of course) so what you were trying to do with a mage being top-dog with DPS at that time is anybody's guess.ultimately though, I may roll FFB for an instance/raid when I get to 80 (when I F*****g finally get wrath - some you wouldn't believe how impossible it is to get wrath retail here - on second thought, maybe you might, it hasn't been translated into japanese after all...but that's a rant for another time) just to see those BIG JUICY CRITS everyone's talking about/drooling over. (well, everyone in the mage community anyway, everyone else is probably wondering if this will make us more squishy or more living WoMD, and even more due cause to feign death/vanish/fade/go invisible (though if your opponent is a mage then I suppose you yourself could just go invisible and know where he is))and to the guy QQ-ing about Christian using the term 'tea-bagging' - stop QQ-ing about 'political' issues and start QQ-ing about important issues, like why the hell we can't steal beastial fury from a hunter or his pet like we can with a pally and hand of freedom (again, another rant for another time... Christian, think WoW insider'll let me QQ about that if I wrote an issue of Arcane brilliance?)
