The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Six months of Cataclysm {WoW}

May 22nd 2011 12:12PM Oh Rossi. It pains me to be reminded that such a good writer and insightful warrior, spends most of it as an Alliance player & a Space Goat at that.

Addon Spotlight: Better PUGs with RobBossMods {WoW}

May 13th 2011 12:38AM I've been using RBM since I started running heroics in January, it was a small Godsend as a tank then. I haven't updated it since 4.1 was released, but it's attributed to a decline in my Ibuprofen purchases after its install. Love the mod.

Encrypted Text: Stabbing your way through the Zandalari heroics {WoW}

May 4th 2011 5:48PM About 2/3rds through the article, I'll admit, I was thinking Chase phoned it in as well - kick, don't take unnecessary damage, use cool downs at the right time, etc which was too bad because I really enjoy his articles. But, then I reread it & dammit if that really wasn't all there needed to be said. He highlights the gear for specs, gives you a few special tips for helping other classes (mage spellsteal), identifies a few player behaviors (and how to improve your own) in new instances. Yea. I think that about covers it. Nicely done ,Chase.

The Queue: I win either way {WoW}

May 2nd 2011 3:50PM Losing your nerve as a tank: I think this can be common coming into Cataclysm from Wrath era of tanking (yes, I liked Wrath too - not too proud to mention). Alex has some great advice & I second it, but I'd also like to add another piece: DPS a few a watch how some experienced tanks handle these dungeons. Granted some will OP the instance & you'll see them mimicking Wrath style AOE (It's where I am & I'd imagine most other tanks are now in progression), but there's a lot of cc still going around. Take in the pace they run at, how it affects your gameplay & the healer's, what you'd do as a tank given what you're seeing. Have fun & use your dps experience as a learning tool - it's always made me a better tank. Enjoy!

Blizzard comments on Outland and Northrend leveling in Cataclysm {WoW}

Apr 1st 2011 10:30AM All these ideas about combining Outlamd & Northrend into an integrated zone & "updating " the storytelling to reflect the current story sounds a lot like what Blizzard would call (& rightly so) an expansion.
