The Silent Bob approach to group management {WoW}

Jan 27th 2009 2:35PM The silent bob healer would let the dps die, and knowledge would be gained. :-)

Breakfast Topic: Get off the #%&$#^$ stone! {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2009 10:24AM So the patch they need to make is, greatly increase the duration of baby spice. 10 minutes would be nice.

Breakfast Topic: Should guilds police member names? {WoW}

Jan 14th 2009 5:36PM If you are offended, report the toon. Being in a guild has little to do with it. I have reported guildies before, and they are none the wiser for it.

As an officer in my current guild, using an offensive name says tells us that you won't fit in our guild to begin with, so there's no need to ask you to change it. Easier to deny the app and move along.

Real life get's scary sometimes tho... there's a student where I work with the name Ashley Raper, and yes, she goes by Ash. Some parents should be shot.

Shifting Perspectives: Gearing your Restoration Druid at 80 {WoW}

Jan 7th 2009 1:17PM I like the single-score ranking idea more than the author of this piece. If nothing else, it gives you a good place to start comparing gear to build a list like this for yourself, especially once you start into Naxx and such and move beyond heroics.

That said, here's my current lootrank.com template for my resto druid: http://www.lootrank.com/wow/wr.asp?Cla=1024&Art=4&Max=40&Gem=2&n2=1&mh=8.1&mp5=33.75&Sta=2.7&mcr=8.1&spd=20.87&Int=10&Spi=20&Ver=6&usr=&ser=&grp=www&i1=0&i3=0&i4=0&i7=0&i9=0&j1=0&j2=0&k2=0&k3=0&k4=0&k5=0&k6=0

And the scores per stat used to generate this template are:
STA = 2.7
INT = 10
SPI = 20
Haste = 8.1
Crit = 8.1
MP5 = 33.75
SpPow = 20.87

Hope this helps.

Shifting Perspectives: Gearing your Restoration Druid at 80 {WoW}

Jan 7th 2009 1:13PM My rule of thumb has been 1500 Spell Power and 250 MP5 while casting, to start Naxx-10. Less for heroics, more to finish Naxx-10. I've also read 1000 Spirit unbuffed is a good target. YMMV VWP

Breakfast Topic: The oldest WoW player you know {WoW}

Jan 7th 2009 1:00PM I'm 40, and my guild leadership is mostly 35+. We have 4-5 I can think of in their 50s.

The reason you under 30s don't notice us is that we avoid you like the plague you are. Now get off my lawn! (/silly in case you missed it)

Breakfast topic: Why didn't you tell me...? {WoW}

Jan 6th 2009 5:28PM - Make a bank alt. Any level 1 will do. Park them in the closest city near the bank, mailbox and AH.
- Mail between your alts on one account is instant. mail between accounts has the 1 hour lag.
- Most small towns have mailboxes, very few have banks. It's really easy to unload stuff to sell/AH later.
- Need more storage? leave items in the mailbox. you have 30 days before they will be auto-returned to the sender.
- Still need more storage? Make a guild for your bank alt and buy some guild-bank tabs. This is also a great way to share items between accounts, with one guilded bank alt on each account.
- You need 10 signatures to start a guild, but none of them have to stay members. Offer gold for signatures then gkick everyone once the guild is formed.

Jan 6th 2009 5:13PM Use your level 450 gathering profession to sell level 80 mats, then use that profit to buy the lesser level mats that are so tedious to farm.

Of course, this only works if someone out there is farming the lower mats too!

Jan 6th 2009 5:09PM @Khanmora - I don't believe that is true. There has always been a zone modifier on BC zones, and a higher zone modifier was added to LK zones.

What they did change was the total amount of XP that you need to collect to achieve the lower levels.

Jan 6th 2009 5:03PM The CoT portal in Dalaran does not require CoT faction, either. I ported my 58 DK and bound him in Dalaran, so now he has a free portal to Tanaris in addition to the major cities.
