Aug 21st 2009 8:09PM It looks like they're using pixel shaders to do real-time reflection mapping. Awesome!

Aug 7th 2009 2:40PM Re: Gearless,
I wouldn't just put the blame on the party, it all depends on what gear Gearless has and what the expectation of the group is. If he's all in quest greens and blues, and doesn't have any crafted pieces, enchants, or gems, then I don't think he should be jumping into heroics like that and expecting to be pulling his weight. Expecting to pull your weight in a heroic as a new 80 with everyone else in Uld/Naxx gear is not reasonable, even as a DPS. Also, most raid people who are doing heroics are doing so to farm badges, and they want to get through it as quickly as possible.
You should either find a group that's willing to run heroics more casually for you to gear you up, or you should max out your character doing normal mode dungeons, getting best in slot crafted items, buying purples on the AH, etc. It shouldn't be too hard to find a guild willing to help you out. My guild runs casual raids on weekends for alts and new raiders, maybe you can find a guild who does something similar and join them.
Jun 12th 2009 11:25PM OK, I downloaded this thing, and the panos it generates are smaller than the original images put together. Is there a max size on the panos?
May 7th 2009 8:27PM Theorycrafting isn't just for max gear... you can use plenty of the same techniques to gauge what's reasonable DPS for you given your gear. EJ also can tell you what good talent specs are to optimize your DPS, what stats are most important, and what kind of cast rotations you should be using.
You can also use a tool called Rawr to estimate what your optimal DPS should be. You plug your gear in, select the buffs you have, and set up stats for your target, and it will tell you roughly what DPS you should be doing, and how you can upgrade your gear as well.

"What this all boils down to is this... unless you are a sponsored guild that is getting paid to be the best, noone has the right to exclude someone else from end game content based on arbitrary criteria. After all, the person in question was good enought to be invited into 'your' guild in the first place...."
Actually, a guild leader has any right to exclude you from end game content for any reason they want. They are the leader, it's their (not 'their') guild. Guilds are not a democracy.
Nobody can exclude you from end game content. They can just ask that you do end game content with someone else. If you don't like it, go find a guild with a leader who seems reasonable to you.
May 1st 2009 2:39PM I voted for changing it to be any sex for one reason only.
Do you know how hard it is to find a female tauren?!?!
Apr 19th 2009 7:43PM We have a 'gnomechomsky' on my server too. That's by far my favorite name of any I've seen...
Tho I do have to add mine in here... I don't play him often, but I have a Blood Elf Priest named Elronhubbard...
Feb 3rd 2009 4:57PM Wow... a bit insecure about your online gaming?
I didn't see anything wrong with this ad...
Dec 9th 2008 1:44PM Most of the hunters in my guild switched to other classes already. This is unlikely to make them (us) reconsider going back to play our hunters.
