Breakfast Topic: If you could choose your racials {WoW}

Sep 11th 2008 8:41AM Diplomacy for all my characters, I'm so sick of rep grinds it's not even funny...

I'd also like to see more "Racial" class specific abilities, such as the priest racials spread around. Tauren Warriors get an ability to gore people with their horns. Or Dwarves get a bonus buff for being drunk.

More universal ones such as a shield block bonus, haggling (better vendor prices), and Braveheart (Increased resist to fears by 2%)

Ask a Beta Tester: Beta from A to Z {WoW}

Sep 8th 2008 6:02PM I have a few questions:
1) When you replace a Glyph with a different one, does it destroy the old one (as with jewel socketing) or does it pop out?

2) Have there been any indications that the other trade skills are getting any further streamlining to improve the process? Will we stop seeing common quality useless/unsellable items in the 100 point skill level for instance?

Breakfast Topic: Your last breath {WoW}

Sep 4th 2008 8:08AM "I regret nothing! I lived as few men dare to dream!"

"I regret I have only infinite rez's to give for my country!"

Breakfast Topic: The next Caverns of Time encounter {WoW}

Aug 21st 2008 8:13AM The re-opening of the Dark Portal at the BC Launch for those of us who missed it.

Or perhaps some original Warcraft like the assault on Grand Hamlet or Northshire Abbey.

Arcane Brilliance: How to fix Mages {WoW}

Jul 7th 2008 12:12AM Making Mages even more AoE based than they are goes against the key mechanic we used to rule, and which blizz has made indispensable now: Crowd Control.

At present, I never use blizzard in 5 mans for risk of breaking CC, and I only use it on very specific encounters in raids where no CC is possible or desireable.

If this is the direction things are moving, I can only hazard to guess that CC will diminish in requirements in LK, making aoe a viable main focus for dps.

Spiritual Guidance: Discipline Yourself to Level 70 {WoW}

May 27th 2008 10:24AM I am an avid fan of Disc priests. One of the most reliable healers in our raiding guild is mostly Disc speced. I am currently working on a level 35 priestess, and I plan to go down through at least power Infusion.

My question to the group is this: Smiting is the key DPS spell for this spec, when should I make the transition to getting Holy talents? What is the best way to distribute points without gimping myself?

I follow mostly the same rotation as others; Holy Fire, SW:P, PW:S, 1-2 smites, wand it down. the mobs are usually at 30~40% at that point, so it's a pretty easy grind, and my mana regen is INSANE for my level, something like 143 mp5

Breakfast Topic: Choose a race for your Death Knight {WoW}

May 23rd 2008 9:04AM Tough Call. Could be I will keep with tradition on my new(er) server and roll a big Draenei male DK and albino. GotN is really helpful sometimes, and IP is always good.

Alternatively, I might roll human this time. Sword expertise, Spirit (Supposedly getting buffed) and rep gains will make things better. I plan to go unholy/pet spec to replicate my glory days as a D2 Necromancer.

Singing the praises of shoulderpads {WoW}

May 22nd 2008 10:36AM As a Draenei Male mage, http://www.wowwiki.com/Illidari_Shoulderpads
There is nothing as wicked looking hehe

Mages in WotLK: I'm re-speccing frostfire {WoW}

May 21st 2008 9:42AM Actually, I am very underwhelmed by the 51-point talents. They feel like PVP talents, especially Deep Freeze since a raid mob or boss can't be frozen for longer than 2 seconds max, if at all. Kinda sucks.

Living bomb is fun I supose, but then, I never plan to do fire again.

Exalted means goodbye {WoW}

May 21st 2008 8:20AM There are some factions I only did for the hell of it, Syguard and Ogrilla mainly, but compared to the new ones, they are not delivering much. SSO on other hand, the dailies are lucrative and not too time consuming if you know what you are doing. I've just hit exalted with them on my 2nd character, and I'm working on a third. As long as those dailies pay off, I will still be doing them.
