Encrypted Text: Welcome your new legendary-wielding rogue overlords {WoW}

Sep 21st 2011 3:34PM Edit to add the new daggers:

Rogues have had the MOST available Legendary weapons (Thunderfury, Warglaives, Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury, These new Daggers)

Encrypted Text: Welcome your new legendary-wielding rogue overlords {WoW}

Sep 21st 2011 3:28PM I think Tanks have gone the longest without any form of Legendary (check since Thunderfury).

Rogues have had the MOST available Legendary weapons (Thunderfury, Warglaives, Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury) with caster dps (Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian and the current Dragonwrath) and 2h melee dps (Hand of Rag and Shadowmourne) second. Following behind with 1 each is the healer (Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings) and tanking classes.

Drama Mamas: When drama follows you to a new guild {WoW}

Sep 19th 2011 1:57PM You shouldn't have to ignore people IN YOUR GUILD. You also shouldn't have to worry, as parent, that some virtual slut can't keep her mouth closed around your children. You also shouldn't need to keep tabs on your husbands chat because some female-dog wants to feel like she could 'have your man'. You sir (or madam) are in the minority here. It has nothing to do with feeling threatened, it has everything to do with the image you are putting out about your guild and yourself. The writer did the everything right. She asked for the offender to stop her inappropriate comments, she then decided to leave when she realized that the guild culture was not what she wanted and then left on friendly terms by explaining in a calm manner why she was leaving. If you asked anyone in my guild, the porn star wanna be is the one who would be in the wrong and so would you.

Officers' Quarters: Downsized {WoW}

Aug 29th 2011 8:04PM "Was his mail insensitive? Yes.
Was it unwarranted, given that you'd only missed one raid? Probably. "

Not probably. Completely and utterly unwarrented considering he had only missed 1 raid out of 15. I understand the Gm/Officers position all too well. I am GM of my guild and know how frustrating it is when people do not show up and you need to field another person, but as a Gm/Officer you should also know your people. You should know that 'Disappointed' always shows up and previously has let us know that something happened. You should be able to see this outside the one night that prompted your rant in a mailbox.

Disappointed may not have been the only one doing a no-call no-show that night and it could have prompted the mail, but that also says that the Gm/Officer sent out similar notes to other people. If he didn't then he was picking on Disappointed which is a whole different issue. That Gm/Officer apologized and while I agree that Disappointed needs to let it go the Gm/Officer needs to understand that he can't do this an keep his raiders.

Yes, the 'it's only a game' defense is kinda crummy but in the end.. it is.. only.. a.. game. Disappointed had a relative die. It obviously was a close enough relative that he was off for a week for the funeral. That is more important that 9-24 other people getting to raid that night (if that one person was enough to keep them from raiding then they have a whole bunch of other issues). If you try and defend anyone for giving Disappointed shit for not showing up then you are heartless bastard and no one is going to show up at your funeral. Just sayin.

Breakfast Topic: Are you a solo player? {WoW}

Aug 1st 2011 3:16AM @ Dril -

I wholeheartedly agree that 90% of WoW is solo content and Blizzard adding in dailys (Think Isle of Quel'Danas in BC, TOC in Wrath, Molten Front in Cata and more to come if they keep it up) has really expanded that content to continue past the leveling and questing available and unlocking nice rewards. Those complaining that there isn't any super great gear, pets, mounts or 'things' for solo players aren't paying attention. I could name 10 solo fun 'things' you could do with chances (or even promise of) neat rewards.

Some of the people complaining that Blizzard caters to the hardcore want to be able to log in as often or as little as possible and still be able to achieve the same thing that people who invest a large amount of time into getting those things in a group environment. While I'm not a hardcore raider (heck I haven't even cleared BWD yet), I don't think that solo content/players should offer the same rewards that raiders can have. Don't get me wrong, it's great to be able to get a few pieces from a daily or a quest line (Thrall's quest line was fun and offered a nice back piece and its completely soloable). I just think that a vast majority of the 'good gear' is needed by and therefor should go to raiders. The gear I need in my solo activities doesn't need to be nearly as good as what I need to tank bosses in a raid.

I ramble. TL;DR. I agree with Dril. Solo content is out there. Great rewards are out there. Quit QQing. (lol) You don't need raid level gear to do solo content.

The Classifieds: Old school, vanilla school {WoW}

Jul 13th 2011 6:20PM I think people need to read before they feel all self important, high and mighty about finding an item on them when it clear says:

"... anything that was introduced after Classic is not allowed when it comes to raiding..."

Can you not fucking read people? WHEN IT COMES TO RAIDING! Did you see their armory DURING a raid. Did you go with them DURING a raid. No. You are trying to tear down someone who is just having a good time in the game to make yourself feel better. Get over yourself. Trying to find someone wrong with someone enjoyment doesn't make you cool, it makes you a dickhead.

The Queue: A year ago ... {WoW}

Jul 13th 2011 4:24AM I really like the warcraftpets website to track that. They recently got an addon that helps with tracking it from in game to the website. Armory is a streamlined version of that.

Breakfast Topic: How do you prefer to access "hard modes"? {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2011 1:02PM To extend content life.

Hardcore raiders would be bored and bitching about content twice as fast. Civil unrest and people are QQing all over the place after 3 months with out a patch with content.
