The Daily Blues {WoW}

Mar 5th 2010 10:24AM It sucks that as the tank, we have to make people create marcos, ask the dps to hold off, and take the blame for all the dumb things they do.

The reason warrior tanks want the ablity to AOE tank like pallies and DKs is not becasue we want it to be easy. Its because tanking as a pally is so easy and pulling threat is off of one is not that easy. Dps has evloled to start obliterating any mob they feel like once the tank runs in. Normally its a pally or DK as the tank, so when they see a Warrior tank, they think they have tunderclap and shockwave, I can blitz as soon as they charge in.

We as warrior tanks (ex warrior tank in my case) don't want it to be easier to tank, we just want to have the same abilities as the other tanks have. Nerfing pallies I don't think is the way to go. Maybe they could reduce the cd on thunderclap and shockwave (make shockwave not hit as a cone but be like tunderclap). I don't want to hear how op it will make prot warriors in pvp. Have you tried killing a pally in pvp? I would tell the everyone to deal with it.

Also I don't see too many warrior tanks when I run randoms, its normally a DK or pally. Blizzard is killing off tanking as a warrior. Please don't comment how I must suck as a tank and such. Those comments are not helpful to the cause and they are just prove my other point on how nasty people are in wow.

Mar 4th 2010 10:52PM That is another problem altogether. People are just so nasty, and one death and a vote to kick is put up. Same if you go too slow in the mind of your fellow pugers. I tanked UK on my lvl 70 DK, I admit I was going a little slow only because it was my first time tanking as a DK. The run was fine, but mr, I have a 9898898 GS DK tank, was a very nasty person.

I told him if he wanted to tank, I would be more then happy to let him log on to the best DK tank in the universe and show me how its done. He kept his mouth shut the rest of the run.

Mar 4th 2010 10:46PM The big issue I have when tanking is a warrior is the fact that most dps are used to a pally tank. Once they consecration, the dps can start blitzing any target they feel like it.

Its the reason I don't tank that often any more. I just got sick of getting blamed for deaths when a raid member dies. They think oh the tank charged in, so I guess I can use my missile proc on the mob ten yards away. Its not fun any more, and I am not going to beg people to give me 3 sec to get threat every pull.

70% of trial players quit WoW before level 10 {WoW}

Feb 11th 2010 1:50PM I played a trail account a couple of years ago and they are awful. You can't do anything at all. Can't chat, use the AH, use the mail, or join a guild. So no wonder people don't stay after the trail is over. The only reason I stayed is that I had a RL friend who got me to stay.

Also at this point in WOWs life, everyone is soooo uber at the game that no one is helpful. Trade chat (at least in my server) is so nasty. Anytime someone asks a question that is considered a noob one, the amount of vile that spews out of the "elite" players can fill nine landfills. I wouldn't want to play wow if I had to deal with that all the time.

I also see vile in randoms as well. People getting trashed for having a low gs, or needing on a blue item. I have been in a few randoms where a vote to kick was put up for someone needing a bop blue. I wasn't the person kicked. But I am sure I will be once I get my hunter up to 80.

The three worst things in wow are gs dps meters, and the countless morons who don't understand how they work.

I think this might be the beginning of the end for wow. Unless blizzard does something or these nasty people leave.

Death to Whirlwind {WoW}

Oct 19th 2009 4:02PM Thats the problem with fury warrirors atm, if you don't have the best gear, your dps is terrible. Someone already pointed it out that the drop rate and the amount of people that want 2h weapons makes getting 2 uber 2h weapons very low. Other classes don't have to have the absolute best gear to churn out good dps.

It is true on Anub and Twins, I am near the top of the dps charts. But on other bosses I am near the bottom and there is nothing that I can do. I am glad I am in a guild that understands what a fury warrior is about. I pug'd ony (10) and the raid leader was yelling at me that my dps was lower then the mage. I shouldn't have had to remind him that I am not ranged dps. But all he did, was look at recount and see that I was near the bottom of dps. He didn't take into account that I was the only melee and I was killing the adds. All he did was look at the dps for ony.

Recount is not the end all be all of wow. Because of recount, I will not sunder in pugs as it lowers my dps too much and it raises the dps of everyone else. Its a said day that blizz has turned fury warriors into the black sheep.

Also don't get me started on people who wont take a warrior tank anymore.

Guildwatch: "ur name is remembered" {WoW}

Aug 27th 2009 1:17PM You can't go afk and expect people to leave your kills not skinned. If I saw a bunch of dead rhinos and an afk toon sitting next to them, I would skin them. The person is afk, and either is not a skinner or doesn't want to skin those kills. Its the same thing as mining, if I see someone killing a mob next to a node, I'll either ask him/her if they are a miner or wait till they are done killing and see if they mine the node. If that toon is afk and standing next to a node and not mining it, the node is now free game.

Those fragile Venomhide Ravasaurs {WoW}

Aug 6th 2009 12:00PM The problem on my server is everyone and their mother is trying to get that mount. There are soooo many dead Ravasaurs in Ungoro. The zone is sooo laggy, I am not even sure people have been able to get one yet. There also are bunch of Ally running around killing them as well, guess they are upset that they have had an exclusive mount for so long and they find it unfair that the Horde now has one.

I am going to give it a few days before I get mine. It still will be cool then. I picked up a Swift Brewfest mount at lvl 45 and it was still cool when I able to use it when I lvled.

Breakfast Topic: Most frustrating non-drop {WoW}

Aug 6th 2009 11:54AM I know this is an old item but Sun Eater was a pain. I spent weeks running Heroic Mech for that stupid sword. I did finally get it, and let me tell you how happy I was, when it dropped. So its not a non-drop, but it took forever to drop.

Emergency maintenance for several U.S. realms [Updated] {WoW}

Aug 5th 2009 8:27AM I think the reason that people get upset when the maintenance last longer then expected, is that blizz doesn't say anything and doesn't really give updates. When they do give an update it normally a number of hours after the problem, and for the most part its a cryptic message.

Like last night, it would have been nice if blizz said to players on Thrall and Mal'ganis that they are having server issues and that they are working on it and hope to get them up as soon as possible. I log on this morning just to check and I see that not only is Thrall down but a slew of other servers are down. At least blizz posted a message about the rolling restarts. I think players on Thrall and Mal'ganis and maybe other should get a free day added to there account for the problems that was experienced last night.

iPhone 3GS PlayStation, Game Boy Advance emulators demoed on video {Engadget}

Jun 25th 2009 11:03AM Sony is not going to allow people to legally d/l any of PS1 games on the iphone. They sell PS1 games on the PSN, and they want people to buy either a PSP or a PS3 to play these games.
Would be a cool idea, but I think it would cut into their PSP sales.
