All the World's a Stage: So you want to be a Death Knight {WoW}

Dec 21st 2008 11:49PM *some spoilers*

I'm not sure that a Death Knight has to be someone who didn't choose to join the scourge. Given the events at the end of LHC it seems that the Lich King betrayed his own people and used them a cannon fodder. Maybe your Death Knight joined the scourge but then decided that working for the Lich King wasn't worth it after all. Also your Death Knight could be a spy for the Lich King sent into the ranks of the Alliance or Horde, though that could be trouble since you don't really have an opportunity to help him again unless you count killing the other side in PvP.

Motorcycles finally implemented in the Wrath beta {WoW}

Sep 18th 2008 1:20PM Are the side cars always there? I can't see it so clearly in most of the pictures with just one person on it, but when there are two it looks huge.

All the World's a Stage: So you want to be a dwarf {WoW}

Sep 8th 2008 1:15AM Hey David I just saw that it says you live in Nanjing I live just down the road in Changzhou.

Arcane Brilliance: Patch 3.0.2 and you {WoW}

Sep 6th 2008 7:42PM Your Arcane PvP spec is OK but I think it's crazy currently to not take Impact, a free stun on everything is just to good to pass up for a spec that's a little low on CC.

New mounts discovered in Wrath Beta {WoW}

Jul 30th 2008 4:00PM What I really hope is that you can put any level on the back and use them in the old world. So I can show up in the lowbie zones and give bear rides.

Blizzard's Wrath talents updated {WoW}

Jul 24th 2008 11:32PM Unless I'm missing something the spirit talents in the mage tree just got moved. The changes to arcane are good but WHY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD IS WAND SPEC STILL THERE.

More leaks from the Alpha forums on Shamans, Warriors, and Death Knights {WoW}

Jul 17th 2008 10:57PM Journalistic integrity doesn't mean what you think it does. Not bowing to pressure to suppress information would have been the better path to follow. Maybe the most famous example of journalistic integrity was the NYT publishing to the leaked pentagon papers. Now
Blizz isn't the Nixon administration and WotlK isn't Vietnam, but I've always been really disappointing with WoW Insider bowing to pressure, and this current situation is really half-assed.

Arcane Brilliance: How to fix Mages {WoW}

Jul 5th 2008 2:26PM I've played a mage for quite a long time now also and I'm so sick to death of all the complaining. Whoever is top DPS at the very top raid levels in the game is subject to constant change due to gear and spell interaction. Every class has their time at the top of the heap and then falls off again.

What makes mages different in groups is that we have the single strongest CC in the game. Even with more classes getting CC none really compare to sheep. Sheep works on a wide variety of targets and can be recast an unlimited number of times during combat. Our buff and other utlity things are also nice but not class defining.

So this week warlocks out dps us. Not even blizzard can tell right now who will be top dps in WotLK. and the idea that we have to out dps all other classes is ridiculous. What we bring is top end damage and supiorer CC.

My main problem though is just hearing more people chime into this "oh poor mages" complaints thats going around. It just serves to demoralize the mage comunity as a whole. If you look at the WoLK talent leaks you'll see some truely impressive addtions eshpeshally to survivablity. Just stop complaining and enjoy the game.

p.s. sorry about the spelling I'm at work.

Psst...want some WotLK alpha talent info? {WoW}

May 20th 2008 4:10PM I'm not saying that WoW Insider should stick it's finger in Blizzard's eye. But you can't claim to be neutral then take special favors, Blizzcon, based on doing what Blizzard wants. This is just a clear sign of a lack of independence.
