Around Azeroth: An edge over the competition {WoW}

Sep 22nd 2009 7:33PM Last time I solo'd thrym, I only took 12k damage the entire fight. He's a pansy.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Some Thoughts About Tanking {WoW}

Sep 12th 2009 4:18PM Woops, meant that as a reply, but it ended up as a new post. Copying so it doesn't get lost.


I guess I've just been unlucky. I've tried it with 5 different warrior tanks. They all tend to lose it during phase 2 of the black knight, the ghouls get lose and the group starts wiping... By phase 3, we're often down one or two dps, and I'm oom from spamming holy light, bubble and FoL on cooldown and staring at another repair bill. The earlier fights are easily within their capabilities.

I don't want to blame the class, but its the only consistent thing in all my H-ToC wipes.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Some Thoughts About Tanking {WoW}

Sep 12th 2009 1:37PM At this point, I refuse to run H-ToC with a warrior tank. Every time I do its a wipefest. Every run with a dk or pally tank we 1-shot. I don't want to believe it, but I keep trying to give them the benefit of the doubt, and I pay in repair bills and a wasted lockout.

Dual specs and loot priority {WoW}

Aug 25th 2009 3:10PM I've had the healing mace drop 3 times in h-toc while I was tanking, and I passed on it for the healer. Damn thing never drops when I'm healing it. Gah!

Speeding up Trial of the Champion {WoW}

Aug 20th 2009 3:57PM Yup, was gonna post this. I've seen them charge and kill someone who had afk'd at the door.

Two Bosses Enter: Mal'Ganis vs. Ormorok the Tree-Shaper {WoW}

Sam Raimi's production diary {WoW}

Jul 28th 2009 6:15PM Hitman was a decent movie, but a terrible representation of the game (and one of my favorite game series, so I'm a bit picky).

Gary Whitta worked on a Warcraft screenplay {WoW}

Jul 24th 2009 3:24PM from what I can tell, he worked on episodes of voyager and futurama, the upcoming akira remake, and that's about it. So, basically nothing.
