Controlling multiple minions and how it might work {WoW}

Jun 30th 2008 7:18PM That brains hyperlink? Epic. Thank you for that.

Forum post of the day: Rookie Mistakes {WoW}

Jun 17th 2008 12:58PM Another proud swimmer here. Westfall to Menathil, and eventually on to Southshore.

I've embraced my swimmer heritage, and many of my characters swim from Theramore to Gadgetzhan, and the run south to Booty Bay is much less dangerous, if you head west and swim it instead.

No pure +damage gear in Wrath, claims Kalgan {WoW}

Jun 9th 2008 4:10PM Indeed, they are going to a single stat system, and I can confirm that it is simply called "Spellpower" Through talents and base percentages, healing spells will get a larger percentage of this stat than damage spells will, in order to maintain the current balance.

This is one of a few changes that represent the new design philosophy at Blizz: Gear desirable by more classes and specs. Spirit is going to be more useful for mages and locks, so a single piece of cloth will be useful for mages, locks and priests of ALL specs, damage or healing. DK's, Paladins, and Warriors will mostly share DPS and tanking drops, etc.

The tier sets will still be tweaked to be more in line with the exact needs of that class and spec, but you can bet that every non tier item will be wanted by multiple classes. I say it's a good thing overall, since we're less likely to disenchant items.

The biggest problems right now, are tanking druids and healing paladins. No other class uses defensive leather, or high spellpower plate. A tanking paladin MIGHT want some of the healing gear, but it's not likely. I have no idea what they are going to do to make feral tank leather appealing to any other spec.

Blizzard names first round of qualifying teams for the North American 3v3 arena tournament regionals {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2008 12:30PM Sure, perfect balance is impossible, but when a point is reached where no spec of a particular class can compete, changes must be made.

Describing WoW in four words {WoW}

May 22nd 2008 5:30PM I play a paladin. For BC, I think it would be:

"I had a bracket." or maybe "Season one was good."

For Wrath... how about:

"The Ashbringer: Paladin Only." or more likely, "DK's stole our buffs."

Breakfast Topic: Biggest AH sale? {WoW}

May 15th 2008 12:59PM Best pre-BC was the Crusader enchant recipie (which I managed to get two of) for 1k even.

Best recently was the Red Belt of Battle. Sold a few of them from 3000 to 3500, before you could buy the Nether Vortex with badges.

Racism in arena names {WoW}

May 13th 2008 10:58PM So, what, exactly, are you suggesting? That if I made a joke about Rosa Parks while in a group of black people, something would happen?

Please, explain to me exactly what you think your stereotypical bar full of black guys would do.

Racism in arena names {WoW}

May 13th 2008 5:41PM This article disappoints. When I read the arena name, I found it funny. I didn't read it and instantly assume that the team founders meant to say: "I am a superior Aryan American, and some uppity N%**#$ bitch stole my bus seat." The name is a play on a long running series of internet jokes, former around the basis of some person or organization stealing my possession. Hell, if you believe the guild names on my server, my guild is responsible for stealing someone's bike.

Stop being such stuffy, overly sensitive prudes. If you're offended by what is said in a simple video game, I'd suggest that you take a step away from the game and examine your influences.

Besides, it's not even overly racist. A bit insensitive, perhaps, but it's not like the team was named "Lynch the darkies."

I'm curious to know: Among all of the people who claim to be offended by this, how many are actually black? How many are actually insecure Caucasians who are offended because they feel that it is PC to feel offended?

Oh, and reading through the comments, I especially love the anti-racist Mexican mother, who tells all of us whites "you need to leave your suburban, middle class parents' home and get a real world education.", shortly after saying that she was "deeply concerned when I see racist and sexist references." That, my dear girl, is what we call "hypocrisy." Next time you want to call someone out for racism, don't follow it up with stereotypical racial profiling.

Raid Rx: Analyzing your healers Part 1 {WoW}

Apr 22nd 2008 7:26PM I have to agree that the pictured UI is painful. Running WAY too many things. PerformanceFU clearly shows 87.8 M or active addons... Anything over 45 is not recommended. Plus, you're pulling 8 FPS with that setup. It may work for you, but I'd suggest that you clear the clutter a bit. I know it can be hard to change something that you're used to, but you will almost certainly see a performance boost if you tone it down a bit. Just out of curiosity, do you use that same UI on Kalec? Seems to me that you'd have difficulty clicking portals.

Secondly, for all of those talking about tracking 25 people... You should have seen how bad it was tracking 40!

Lastly, judging healing performance is more about smart skill usage than raw healing numbers to me. Did my paladins use Holy Light often enough to keep Light's Grace active? Are my priests using their full arsenal of heals, or spamming one ability? I use WWS to analyze skill usage, overheal, and focus, mostly. If someone assigned to a single target has a large focus, something is most likely wrong. If overheal is too high ("Too High" varies from class to class), I'll try to get that healer to cancel-cast more.
