Scattered Shots: Survival 101, part 2 {WoW}

Apr 28th 2010 6:20AM No, Leck's quite right in saying that this was changed, and as long as you are tracking *any* of the relevant mob types, you gain the bonus damage against *all* of them.

This was a change in 3.0.8.

* Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): This talent has been slightly re-designed. Now reads: "While tracking Beasts, Demons, Dragonkin, Elementals, Giants, Humanoids and Undead, all ranged damage done to those types is increased by 1/2/3/4/5%"; was "Increases all non-periodic damage done to targets that are being tracked 1/2/3/4/5%."

Doing something nice for other players {WoW}

Sep 30th 2009 9:31PM There was a level 61 hunter asking for help the other day - she'd gotten her account back after some time, and whoever had had their hands on it had helpfully vendored everything saleable that she had - she literally had a PvP bow, gloves, and cloak left, and no other gear at all.

So, I start off by looking for anything sanely priced in the AH with appropriate stats on it in the AH, and gave those to her - but that wasn't too many items (and whoever thinks 70g+ is a sane price for 60ish greens ... yeesh). Plus a shirt, since the only chestpiece available was rather skimpy.

So I offered to give her a hand with some Hellfire Peninsula quests, since the quest rewards should help. She'd done some, but not all, but found she had the Overlord quest - so we offed the demon - and she then mentioned she had a quest for Ramparts.

About three trash pulls in she mentions being out of bagspace ... at which point I twig that all she has is her backpack, since her bags had been vendored too. Hearthed out, went to the AH, bought bags, Dalaran-ringed back to Dalaran, portal to Shattrath, fly to Ramparts, and gave her four Frostweave bags.

We went on to have fantastic luck with loot - mail legs from the first boss with three sockets, gloves with two sockets from Omor, and a very usable staff from the end boss (along with one useless item, but hey, three good blues ain't bad!). Enchanted them up, grabbed some AP/sta Northrend gems from an alt, and an armour patch for the legs while I was at it.

Just asked her that if she's ever in a position to help out someone who seems needy, to try and help. :)

Brewfest 2009: Coren Direbrew's new level 80 loot revealed {WoW}

Sep 21st 2009 5:23AM Might be a bit dull, but it's not really a huge surprise - the previous non-sta trinkets were re-hashes of the Justice Badger trinkets.

The Queue: Too soon {WoW}

Sep 9th 2009 5:52PM You, um, never went to Magister's Terrace during the Burning Crusade, then?

The Faction Champions are like a tarted up Priestess Delrissa on steroids...

Phat Loot Phursday: Onyxia Scale Cloak {WoW}

Aug 21st 2009 5:32AM About the cloak in particular, it's a little sad if the graphics won't be re-used for a revamped one from the 'new' Onyxia; it's still easily one of the best cloak graphics in game.

As opposed to the poor Sapphiron Drape, an epic that re-used the graphic from a low-level green cloak (Glyphed, if memory serves); how much more impressive it'd have been had it been a blue-tinted version of the Onyxia cloak graphic.

Phat Loot Phursday: Onyxia Scale Cloak {WoW}

Aug 20th 2009 9:05PM The scales from Onyxia didn't "drop", they had to be skinned (skinning 300 + skinning enchant + Finkle's Skinner please), and yielded 2-4 a time.

The OverAchiever: Guide to Midsummer Fire Festival achievements {WoW}

Jun 24th 2009 5:06PM "your character will need to be at least 50 to hand in the items needed for King of the Fire Festival" - this is wrong - I've managed to hand in Thunder Bluff, Undercity, and Silvermoon flames, between levels 44 and 47.

Blizzard S.A.S. (France) to publish WoW in the EU {WoW}

Apr 12th 2009 7:08AM See, I'm not really convinced this is necessarily going to make a blind bit of difference.

We have no real evidence that Blizzard Europe has any real autonomy from the US operation, they're certainly unlikely to be forking the codebase and going off to develop a proper en-GB version (as nice as that might be).

My suspicion is that this is going to be a change that results in Blizzard being liable for less tax, or being able to claim better subsidies/offsets, or somesuch.

My Buggy Valentine: Problems with Love is in the Air {WoW}

Feb 15th 2009 7:10PM Actually, yes, this one does go faster. See http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=60024 - it's a 310% speed mount.

Arcane Brilliance: The wonders of Frostfire {WoW}

Dec 7th 2008 9:14AM If only I'd realised it was an oops, and had made some sort of light-hearted comment to point it out with a smiley at the end to indicate I was not seriously put out by the error and was instead jovially drawing attention.

Oh wait!
