The Queue: Well rested weekend {WoW}

Nov 9th 2009 4:46PM Arktic already said it... If you want to get as much as possible from the two factions, go Frenzyheart first. The only item of worth is the Frenzyheart Brew to turn you into a Wolvar, and that has much higher drop rate than the Green Proto-Drake from the Oracles. Once you get the Frenzyheart Brew and switch to Oracles, you can get the Mercenary of Sholozar Achievement (if that's your kind of thing) and then you can stay Oracles for as long as you need to in order to get the Green Proto-Drake.

Which may be a long, long time. :(

Encrypted Text: Rogue tips for raiding Trial of the Crusader, part 1 {WoW}

Sep 2nd 2009 12:54PM It's low. I play the only rogue who raids in my guild. A few other people have rogue alts at 80, but they only use them to farm.

Rogues lost a lot of players at the beginning of WOTLK, when we felt as if we were pretty nerfed compared to Fury Warriors and Cat Druids at the time. Rogues are much better now, but a lot of Rogue players had already jumped ship.

Around Azeroth: Dream big {WoW}

Jul 14th 2009 10:05AM Do people really still send you screenshots of their battleground scoreboards, gold seller ads with dead gnomes, and the ninja turtles in Dalaran? Or is that just a general disclaimer that you keep using?

Guildwatch: Dodge this {WoW}

Jul 8th 2009 3:57PM To the people complaining about the d-bag guild leader... if you're working on learning the 2nd to last boss in Ulduar, you shouldn't be complaining about wipes. If you think your raid is doing something wrong, say something. Don't quit the raid without warning and then tell the raid leader "screw this whipefest." That's d-bag behavior.

The Matrix joke was just a stylish way of giving a much deserved /gkick.

The Daily Quest: Making your own items, Killing Spree, and more {WoW}

Jun 30th 2009 4:22PM Rogue theorycrafters have known for a long time that Killing Spree is a very good PvE talent, and with the Glyph, even better.

The article also fails to mention that you can use Killing Spree to avoid many fears, stuns and other abilities that make you lose control of your character. E.G. Right before Auriaya casts her Terrifying Screech, activate Killing Spree. You will be untargetable for the duration, and you will ignore the fear, putting you in the perfect position to interrupt her follow-up Sentinel Blast.

The Queue: Waterfalls {WoW}

Jun 8th 2009 3:11PM Blackrock Mountain was created when the Dark Iron Dwarves foolishly summoned Ragnaros. Ragnaros promptly went Mount Saint Helens all over the place, creating the Searing Gorge and the Burning Steppes as well as Blackrock Mountain, and then enslaved the Dark Irons for good measure. The Dark Iron Dwarves then built all the tunnels and buildings you see inside Blackrock, including the Molten Span. Just because they could, and because dwarves love grandiose stone architecture.

Later on, the Horde showed up along with Nefarion and the Black Dragonflight, and then the place really went to hell.

Encrypted Text: Rogue tips for raiding Ulduar, part 3 {WoW}

Jun 3rd 2009 4:26PM That sounds like it would be pretty helpful interrupting Auriya's Sentinel Blast as well.

Why Varian Wrynn is a fool, part II {WoW}

May 27th 2009 1:52PM This is why choosing your leaders based on primogeniture has fallen out of favor in the real world.

PvP trinket is mandatory {WoW}

May 1st 2009 11:26AM Or play a human and use your trinket slots for something with better stats.

Encrypted Text: The logic behind Rogue axioms {WoW}

Apr 29th 2009 1:00PM Combat... daggers? Why? DPS from combat daggers is consistently below any other talent build, be it Mutilate, Combat Swords/Maces/Fists, or HAT. And on top of that, Combat Daggers is the only build (aside from a PvP Shadow Dance build) where you have to worry about positioning.

Basically combat daggers is the least optimal spec you could have for a rogue. Unless you spec 23/23/23 or something.
