Encrypted Text: Shadows descend upon Northrend {WoW}

Nov 12th 2008 11:18AM Great post, I love your writing style. Keep up the good work :)

Blizzard Authenticator may or may not be for sale again {WoW}

Jul 11th 2008 3:06PM Ryan, I use firefox and am very careful about my habits. I use a physical firewall as well, and am a computer engineer. My account got hacked when I logged off after a raid to switch accounts with a boss guide open in firefox. Apparently some javascript vulnerability existed at the time, allowing it to log keys. Saying something like "dont be an idiot and you are fine" works great, until it happens to you, then you feel pretty dumb.

Raid Rx: Analyzing you healers Part 3 {WoW}

Jun 24th 2008 5:39PM @Daddywarbuck of Farstriders : Also, your comments about healing do not seem to really fit into the context of this post. Marcie is helping us break down healing strats using tier 6 content as an example. Believe me, you have not healed until you have healed tier 6. Healing is a whole different game from your guild (karazhan cleared and a couple bosses in ZA). Not a single 25 man kill yet, and this is clearly targeted at more progressed healing. Your posts are lengthier than the article itself, and frankly I would rather take healing advice from the healing lead of a t6 clearing guild than yourself who has cleared nothing but Karazhan.

Raid Rx: Analyzing you healers Part 3 {WoW}

Jun 24th 2008 5:30PM @Daddywarbuck of Farstriders :
So, let me test my understanding. Lets say your raid has 8 healers. You would rather end the fight with 4 healers at 0% mana and 4 healers @100% mana than to have all 8 @50% mana? Thats probably one of the stupidest things I have ever heard (when it comes to raid healing). If the work is divided evenly, and all of a sudden an emergency happens, wouldn't 8 people flash healing (then digging into their mana regen bag of tricks) be better than 4 people doing it? As a healing lead in a black temple guild, I say yes.

No pure +damage gear in Wrath, claims Kalgan {WoW}

Jun 9th 2008 5:26PM How does this heighten drama? How many times have you sharded a caster loot cause noone needed it or sharded a healer loot because the healer had better? Constantly. This will fix that, so you will have less wasted loots. I don't see a single downside to this. Less runs to gear your raid = win.

How a quirk in the game can steal your loot {WoW}

Mar 19th 2008 4:20PM If you have earth shield on you, or prayer of mending, or a lifebloom blooms, or you have a feral druid in your group with imp leader of the pack, you will be healing yourself via these abilities and then generate global healing agro. Of course it will be minimal, but you will get on the attack table. This is probably why most people have never seen this, because most guilds will have one of these things happen to every tank in every encounter.

Dec 10th 2007 1:25PM Outfitter will equip your riding crop for you when you mount, and unequip when you dismount. The only exception is if you are in combat while mounted, and then dismount (obviously). Its not only the pros who use Outfitter, and you should consider trying it out.

Totem Talk: So you've decided to roll a shaman... {WoW}

Nov 15th 2007 1:57PM @11 Resto tree FTW! But seriously, resto is the survival-type tree IMO, and later on it really can kick out some alright dps while always being able to run an instance as a healer. You have to get deep enough to get the passive pushback talent and then you will be very difficult to kill if you do not go shock-happy and just keep a steady pace and flametongue on your weapon (it gets +spell damage) and a searing totem up. Toss yourself a heal every now and then and you can take down a couple mobs at once.

Hunters no longer have FD Drink in 2.3: Bug fix or nerf? {WoW}

Nov 15th 2007 9:59AM @25 No, you will not be able to avoid dying during a wipe. Just like rogues. Sorry, run back and pony up for the repair bill like the rest of us, you lazy feigning jerk.
