Scattered Shots: New beta build for happy hunters {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2010 9:38AM "I shall manfully refrain from saying I told you so to everyone who cried that the world was ending. Our ability to shoot on the move was too drastically low, and Blizzard recognized and is fixing it."

Rightfully so, unless you plan to prove that there is NO causation in that correlation.

Then why does Blizzard give us a preview and ask for feedback then?

The important part is not to get hung up on minutia, look at the big picture, and tell Blizzard if you like the direction they are taking. Assume that they will (eventually) balance the system out at least as well as it is now. Will you be having FUN playing with the new changes?

Scattered Shots: Hunter pets in Cataclysm {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 10:24AM I want two things from my pet choice.

1) I want to have a choice.
2) I want that choice to matter.

These changes don't help with that. In a 25 man, I can bring whatever pet I want, and it makes absolutely no difference. In a 10 man, my choice will be made for me by the raid leader.

The only way to actually give me what I want is to make pets work better or worse based on player style of play. Sadly, I don't see Blizzard being willing to spend the time to do this. Though they _might_ at least make pets more adapted to each spec.

The REAL problem here is that Blizzard has us all in the place where if you aren't a tank or a healer, everything gets sacrificed for DPS. It certainly doesn't have to be that way (and hasn't always been so). As long as there is only one variable to maximize, people will always min/max to that variable.

Cataclysm Class Changes: Hunter {WoW}

Apr 9th 2010 4:18PM Can someone please explain the benefit of Camouflage to me?

It doesn't stop me from being seen.
It doesn't prevent me from being meleed.
It doesn't help me while leveling.

It prevents ranged (single target) damage in all those situations when I might want to stand at range and NOT shoot back (which would be when exactly?).
It gives a bonus to an opening shot.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

Just because you can't fix it, that doesn't mean it is not a bug.

Thank You Kindly.

Officers' Quarters: Gold rush {WoW}

Feb 26th 2008 10:05AM
I love reading about the hierarchical totalitarian states people set up for their guilds.

My guild has our bank tabs (and gold) fully open to all members. New characters are encouraged to take a few gold to get started. Everybody is encouraged to take whatever they need. Crafters have a much easier time because materials are often readily available. Our biggest trouble is running out of space. You can tell the officers in the guild because they are the ones saying 'no really, take it!'. Gold is increasing.

Thank You Kindly.

The world (of Warcraft) is flat {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2008 12:57PM
I have studied this a bit and the conclusions I came to are as follows:

1) If Azeroth is a planetary body, it is large compared to the known area. This can be easily seen in the fact that there is little change in the height of the sun when teleporting from on side to the other.

2) The sun both rises and sets in the same direction (Azeroth). As does the moon. This argues heavily against Azeroth being a standard planetary body system. Maybe some genius can come up with the mechanics of such a system, But I can't.

All the World's a Stage: Yes, and...? {WoW}

Nov 12th 2007 10:16AM I think you are missing an important nuance to the 'yes, and' game. The responder needs to accept what the initiator says as 'truth' not necessarily as the truth. That is, what is said is 'within the story'. The responder doesn't need to believe it; shouldn't believe it if that is in keeping with the story and their character. And certainly shouldn't believe a spell (which CAN actually be cast) has been cast when it hasn't, there is just an emote. Emotes are useful for things which can't be realistically done in game, not for things which can be done, but require skills the character doesn't actually possess. Otherwise we get:

Ladyvira casts Seed of Corruption on Orthar.
Orthar kills Ladyvira dead, And walks off.

The reason we have WoW is so that we can simulate those things which we couldn't in another format. We can have contests of skills, that could end in death. We can cast spells. Emotes are a crutch we use since Blizzard has not given us complete control over every possible action we might want to perform. Which is better, /e dances or /dance?

You have Othar playing a roleplaying game, not being a character (which just happens to be being roleplayed by someone on a computer). Why on Azeroth is he going along with this wacko? Why is he faking injuries? I am sure he gets enough REAL injuries in his line of work. Should a paladin really participate in the demonic delusions of this poor girl? Wouldn't it be better if he got her some help?
