The Queue: Clearing things up {WoW}

Jun 9th 2010 3:50PM Jewelcrafting is a BC only Profession. If you only had Vanilla WoW, you would not be able to train in Jewelcrafting (which, makes sense, as all gear with sockets in it is only in 60+ content). You can use JC items off the AH but you cannot train in it.

Meanwile, Inscription is a profession that, while introduced in Wraith, is available to everyone, including people with only Vanilla WoW. This is probably to offset the class abilities re-balance with the glyph concept.

In conclusion, only people with BC and higher can be JCs and everyone can be a Scribe.

Cataclysm: Stat and system changes for prot warriors {WoW}

Mar 1st 2010 4:35PM Didn't they show off the mastery system? WoWhead has a picture of it, I think:

Abilities I usually wish didn't exist in 5-mans {WoW}

Jan 13th 2010 8:06AM @Noct and @Saint - read the tool tip of DnD "This ability produces a high amount of threat." This ability builds more threat then most other AoE spells. Its intended as a tanking ability, not a dps ability - 3 runes to do a 62 dps for 10s is NOT a good trade off. Using those runes to cast Icy Touch + Plague Strike + Pestilence, and then a blood boil would do far more damage.

Spiritual Guidance: Making an Insightful meta choice {WoW}

Jan 10th 2010 8:07PM Well, from what I can gather, MP5 = INT * 13.333%

60 MP5 = 450 Int

And, to gain 450 int at 2%, you need 22500 int.

WoW 5th Anniversary Giveaway: Spectral Kitten loot code {WoW}

Nov 23rd 2009 9:03AM Hmm... I think my girlfriend might like this guy...

Lichborne: Blood, blood! {WoW}

Nov 3rd 2009 8:27AM Well, why not take the points in Improved Blood Presence and Vampiric Blood, and put them into Blood Worms, for additional DPS and minor healing?

Breakfast Topic: Which tier 10 bonuses appeal the most to you? {WoW}

Oct 11th 2009 10:09AM Not the 2-Piece bonus if DK Tanks - everyone is gaining a lot of +damage buffs, and the Death and Decay is only normally used in multiple mob encounters and very rarely against bosses. DK tanks in Ice Crown are going to be hard up for generating Agro, when dps are gaining a lot of extra damage from their 2-piece bonus.

Patch 3.3 PTR: Death Knight patch notes and undocumented changes {WoW}

Oct 2nd 2009 8:59PM Wouldn't that make DK tanks unbalanced and OP (speaking as a DK tank)?

That means that DKs get to take an extra talent in reference to their Warrior, Paladin, and Druid brethren, but also lose out on style points for choosing their enchants. As well, a Dual Wielding DK will get the advantage of being able to use the tanking rune, as well as another rune.

NPD: World of Warcraft has sold 8.6 million boxes at retail {WoW}

Jul 30th 2009 3:17PM @firestyle: In 2008, they had 4 games in development:
WoW: WotLK
StarCraft 2
Diablo 3
And Unannounced MMO Project

So, I don't think it was a majority of WotLK they invested in.

Breakfast Topic: What iPhone app should Blizzard release next? {WoW}

Jul 19th 2009 11:33AM The problems are simple to solve:

Mail Box - You can only check your mail box. This makes sense, otherwise, you'd be able to be in the middle of the Blasted Lands and "check" your mail on the iPhone and get items from it. ipHone app should only check your mailbox to see if you won that auction or if a friend has paid back that gold you loaned him.

Auction House - this is no different to the current system, with people sitting in front of the auction house, waiting for a cheap item to show up. And, considering if your on the iPhone using the 3G network, it'll be more expensive to do this with your data plan then to actually log in with a character and do the same thing.
