Dec 15th 2009 10:07AM The unlimited free trial almost makes me want to try Age of Conan.
Dec 11th 2009 10:11PM I used to work for GameStop, and while I agree that they have gone downhill in recent years (especially after the merge with EB), you aren't exactly getting nothing for your pre-order money. Even if there is no release date, you are guaranteed a copy of that game on the day it does come out.
Either that or I'm still conditioned from having to sell at least 3 pre-orders per day. My record for a week is 145 (thank you Burning Crusade!).
Dec 11th 2009 5:25PM The Mut hotfix was a little disappointing, but even with it my DPS is up almost 25%. It's weird to see Instant Poison as my highest damage ability, even above normal melee.

I'm too lazy to do the Argent Tournament.

/Northern Michigan, close enough.

1. Tanking - Responsible for the safety of the entire raid, enough said. Play it as my secondary spec, don't really enjoy it all that much.
2. Melee DPS - Blizzard has stated that in exchange for higher baseline DPS, being in melee range has been purposefully made more dangerous. Chain lightning on the tank, AoEs that originate from the bosses position (Overcharge), Cleaves, Tail Swipes, mobs that just turn and smack you for no reason (trash in Antichamber). We have to deal with this a lot!
3. Healing - I play a Druid Healer. Move grid into the middle of my screen, click the little boxes. Stack one of each of my HoTs, maybe throw in a Nourish or Wild Growth. Healing is what I do to get away from the stress of Melee DPS.
4. Ranged DPS - I haven't played a Ranged DPS class since Molten Core, a Mage, but my favorite part about playing one was standing in once place the entire fight and spamming my Frostbolt key. Baron Fire Farting? No big deal. Golemagg? I don't think I ever had to move during that encounter.
Feb 11th 2009 9:05AM Having Tankserious on the Whisperwind forums was perhaps some of the most fun I've ever had.
He used words so big you'd think he was a college professor, but it got annoying.
Also, an advocate of Socialism, apparently, as you had to pay 50g a week to be in his guild. Anyway, check out some of his old threads there, they are very fun to read.
Dec 12th 2008 9:42AM She got a nice little email from this 3.83 GPA college student, who also plays Warcraft at least 30 hours a week. I would encourage others to email her.
