The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Destroyer {WoW}

Jan 15th 2010 7:12PM If you pay close attention, you will notice that every single picture Matthew Rossi puts on his articles is of one of his warriors, usually looking from the ground up. I need to eventually make a slide show or a compilation to show how similar every single picture is. ^^

One Boss Leaves: Mal'ganis chops Ormorok {WoW}

Aug 6th 2009 6:14PM Actually, Mal'ganis's Carrion Swarm is one of the few AoE spells that is reflectable, at least by a prot warrior's Spell Reflect. However, that works differently than Ormorok's, so it's hard to say.

Zoltan scores over 10,000 achievement points {WoW}

Patch 3.2: Argent Coliseum 5-man story and encounters (SPOILERS) {WoW}

Jun 30th 2009 11:59AM I'm probably just showing my bias here, but I'm really think that the conversations at the beginning between the faction leaders and Tirion are very revealing. We see Garrosh reveling in the last fight he instigated with Varian and basically saying that he wishes he could kill at least Varian, if not just humans and the other alliance races completely.

Varian, on the other hand, seems more concerned with the safety of his people, by not completely putting his trust in the Argent Dawn to handle the Horde, like he did with the Kirin Tor during the Ulduar opening trailer. And we all saw how that went, with Garrosh running in and attacking him.

So anyway, it seems that while Garrosh wants to just go crazy and kill the Scourge and the Alliance and probably pretty much anyone else, Varian is more contained, wanting to handle the Scourge first, and then worry about the Horde separately, rather than starting a second major conflict in the middle of the campaign in Northrend. At least, that's what I got out of this.

World first of "Alone in the Darkness" a possible exploit {WoW}

Jun 29th 2009 7:08PM I have to say, as soon as I saw that it was Ensidia saying that Exodus cheated, I just laughed. It's just not credible when it comes from, you know, the people that were probably playing (working?) as hard as possible to get it first.

The Queue: Roll out the barrel {WoW}

Jun 23rd 2009 10:59PM Woot, thanks for answering. I thought I saw that question asked on here and I looked through the last few Queue things, and I swear I didn't see it. Ah well. Now I can harass Rossi whenever I find something warrior-esque that he may find interesting.

Bring the player, not the class, except maybe healers {WoW}

Jun 23rd 2009 2:34PM This is being hotly debated right now on the tanking forums. Ghostcrawler made some posts that there's some... mild irritation about.

It starts as a warrior post, but it's really starting to discuss all the tanks. You can read it all here:

The Queue: Patch 3.2 and Beyond the infinite {WoW}

Jun 23rd 2009 12:05PM Okay, I've been looking around on the site for a while now and I can't find it. How would one get in touch with some of the writers here at Or, if you want me to be more specific, how can I start throwing things at Matthew Rossi. Non-hurty things.

Saturday's in-game fixes: Threeve {WoW}

Apr 25th 2009 6:16PM No, he's actually right. Last week on the night before the instance reset, a couple of my guild members and I got a few PuG people and headed into 10-man. It was actually a really good group, getting him into phase 3 with 6 minutes to spare on the enrage timer. But as soon as phase 3 started and the platform broke and we landed on our drakes, they despawned, and the entire raid fell to their deaths, before Malygos was even engaged again. This happened three times in a row before we called it.

Now, cut to yesterday, after the instance reset, patches full of fixes, several server restarts, etc. I did a guild run while waiting on one of healers to log on so we could hit up Ulduar, got him into phase 3 with plenty of time to spare, and the drakes seemed to be working. We got Malygos down to about 10% when all the drakes yet again despawned. However, this time they picked us up again, but when we were back up, we were all in melee range of him, and he proceeded to kill us off pretty quickly before we could figure out what happened.

So no, he wasn't just dying. This is an actual bug, which as of yesterday (4-24-09) had not been fixed.

New 5-man instance confirmed for future patch {WoW}

You, sir, win. That is the most amazing comment I have ever read on here.
