Jan 8th 2012 8:57PM I was going to be a voiceover actor, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

Dec 3rd 2011 6:12PM Archmage Pants, I must ask: Are you in favor of transmogging to the T8 chestpiece, aka the one that is not a robe? I made a point to burn some JP and buy this, so I can indeed see the rest of my gear. I'm wearing shoes?! Whoa.
Jun 29th 2011 5:31PM Throwing my bit in again as well, I think we need a column on sub since it evokes such strong reactions from a select few, just like many controversial issues. And quoting the simulationcraft standings isn't fair since it's T12 heroics - are you going to see those anytime soon? But it shows the point that sub is far from out in the cold.
My armory, I do take Cheat Death, I value the utility just like I use Chillblains in my DK spec, it helps more than it hurts. I've made a point to only raid as sub.
Apr 6th 2011 2:49PM Simcraft shows sub as perfectly viable, and it's not that hard a rotation. Yes, rupture needs a 5pt w/max uptime, but you should have plenty of leeway with HaT to get at least a 4pt evisc off. Swap rupture glyph for SnD when mobility is at a premium. I'm not doing heroic raids but I'm pulling consistent 16k with an avg equipped iLvl of 350.

Where's sub? Oh yeah, right in the middle of the other two. I topped a BH the other night as well, against some people with better gear and "better" specs. It's time for some real love for sub. I do wish there were enough points to sneak Cheat Death into my PvE build...
Jan 17th 2011 11:27PM Let's see, talk about something current and that people may be approaching now/in the near future or talk about some rather mundane changes that might not even be the same tomorrow? Warlock PTR changelist is pedestrian. A few pvp-oriented changes, some mastery tweaking, a few spell/talent adjustments. Doesn't sound very interesting. I'd rather my columnist be in the world with me than constantly dealing with hypotheticals. Theorycrafting is one thing but idle speculation is usually boring.
Jan 10th 2011 6:39PM I feel the pain. The guild that I've been calling home is having some conflicts now between the hardcore progression raiders and the core of players who have been around for years. A few months ago we merged with another guild that had previously splintered off a few years ago. The new people were nice enough, different personalities but we got along. Guild repairs were promised, stalled, and now only turned on for the raiders. I hate being a second-class citizen because I don't have a 9-5 job that allows prime-time raiding. I don't know if I would even run with them because I don't like some of the leads. But the change is noticeable and I'm not alone in moving toons out to other members of the Alliance. Officer nominations are happening again, but more of the same doesn't seem like it will help.
Dec 4th 2010 2:03PM How exactly is Cataclysm content going to happen? We've been told it's an identical start time of midnight pacific time, but I don't recall any "switches being thrown" while live. Is the clock going to ding and the server restarts, magically at midnight we can click the previously dead portal, or something else?
