Save your specs with Talented {WoW}

Apr 22nd 2009 9:05AM I've been using this addon for as long as I can remember, and with the 3.1 talent dump along with the one we got hit with on Tuesday, it's made life so much easier for me. It excels at allowing you to create talent templates before committing to the build, giving you a chance to play around with it a little bit. It works exactly like the talent calculators you see on Wowhead and MMO Champion, but it's just in-game. When Tuesday's talent dump hit, my guildmates were talking about how much they hated having to redo their talents, so I turned them on to Talented.

Authentication server and official forums down [UPDATED x10] {WoW}

Jan 9th 2009 5:18PM I am able to login just fine to Garrosh. I am on the east coast but the server itself is located in Seattle.

Countdown to Wrath Giveaway: Day 1 - BlizzCon Polar Bear Mount {WoW}

Nov 12th 2008 9:30AM In before ... oh well I'm too late for that I guess

When WoW becomes work {WoW}

Apr 29th 2008 4:32PM I've been in that situation several times myself, wondering how things went from playtime to worktime and not notice it along the way. The best way I have found to rid myself of all that pressure is to roll a new character and start all over again. The best thing about that is that you can go back to how it all began when you rolled your first character and just *relax* because there is no more pressure on you to tank or to do this or do that. Hell, don't even join a guild on your new toon, just solo as much as you can and group when you need to. Oh, and don't tell anyone you know what you are doing. You can't get any peace and quiet (and much needed rest) if you're constantly getting spammed on your alt about getting ready for the raid. Good luck!

How to fix the Parrot Scrolling Combat Text Addon {WoW}

Apr 8th 2008 11:53AM I, too, was destitute and heartbroken upon learning that Parrot stopped working due to the many changes in patch 2.4, so I resolved to find an addon that did something just as well as Parrot did. Before I discovered Parrot, I had been using SCT and its various mods almost from the day I started using mods two years ago. It was easy for me to switch back as it was something that I was familiar with and it wasn't hard to set up. Do I have a preference? Sure, I would love to have Parrot back on its feet in an official way, but we know that it'll take some time for that to happen.

Addon Spotlight: AuldLangSyne {WoW}

Apr 5th 2008 11:18PM Another excellent addon that I have been using for quite some time now. If you're not already using addons to track guildmembers and friends then this one wont change your mind, but if you value both simplicity and power then this could be the one you need to track the people that you play with.

Blizzard announces new Molten Core console version {WoW}

Apr 1st 2008 9:13PM Okay so some of you guys are barfing up crap about how Blizzard posting something on their website for April Fools Day when they should be working on your class or getting the patches working properly? It takes time away from level design? OMG seriously if you are one of the people complaining/whining/QQing then you really need to leave. No, not just this website but the entire game. Honestly, take a chill pill and step back. IT'S JUST A GAME! LOL


Your Addons vs Patch 2.4 {WoW}

Mar 25th 2008 7:08PM UI Central has been a joke since its first incarnation and hasn't gotten any better with time. Have you tried version 4 yet? You're not missing anything, trust me. I find it hard to believe that it can't scan your addons and tell you if an updated version is available. Other automatic updaters seem to do just fine. UI Central speaks volumes about the lack of quality on the WoWUI website. By the way, don't think by manually downloading the addons that you are out of harm's way. I have read many a story on this very site that states that people have been getting keyloggers when downloading addons from the Curse website.

Personally I use a combination of WoWAceUpdater (most of my addons are Ace-based) WowMatrix (updates the ones that aren't updated by WAU) and have been doing so for many months without any problems at all. But do be careful when downloading addons from these all-inclusive addon sites. Your best safe bet is to find the website of the addon author and download it from there. If they don't have one, head for a trustworthy site like WoWInterface.

Best starting race {WoW}

Mar 19th 2008 9:30PM Until BC came out, the best place to start on the Alliance side was in Northshire because the quest stacking was incredible. You could go from Northshire to Elwynn to Westfall to Redridge to Duskwood and by the end of your Duskwood run you're probably at or near level 30. And as much as people dig at Stranglethorn Vale it's easily the only place at the level range between 30 and 45 where the quests are stacked one on top of the other and you weren't doing a huge amount of running around. After BC, the torch was passed to the Draenei. Doing the Draenei quests felt far more epic than any other alliance race because the Draenei had much more involvement in the cataclysmic events both before and after the Third War.

On the Horde side, I'd have to go with the Undead as the best starting race with the best starting area. I never much cared for Orcs and since Trolls start in the same place that pretty much ruled them out. I've always held a fascination with the Tauren but again it's a long haul from one quest to the next and it just doesn't move fast enough for me. As far as the Blood Elves go, the starting area is insanely beautiful and there is some really good quest stacking, but not as good as the Undead.

Best starting race {WoW}

Mar 19th 2008 9:20PM Did you put the Night Elf area on your list as a joke or were you serious? Between the absurdly long walks to Farnassus and literally all points around the tree, it simply takes far too long to really get anywhere with any amount of speed. Walk outside of Darkshore and it doesn't get any better, either. Sure it's pretty, but I'm not at an art gallery I am here to play a game.
