Apr 7th 2009 5:10PM How dare you make it seem like this game is playable without the use of add-ons!

Jan 19th 2009 11:44PM Can I voice my confusion everytime you say "extended maintenance" when really I think of this as "normal maintenance" times? You should call this "normal" maintenance and the days they have rolling restarts "shortened" maintenance.
Oct 21st 2008 9:27AM No, I *THINK* what was being said is that there's no reason if you have 3 or 4 other healers that you couldn't allow 1 super-specialized shield machine to be in the mix.
As evidenced by the amount of chat on my server about "what's the best spec for _____ class," I think people are too hung up on "winning the game". Thankfully Blizzard is working to change the need for "the one right spec," but it'll be a while before people accept them.
I look at it this way: If you are running dungeons or instances, I understand the need to minimize repair bills/wipes/etc. However, my goal in the game is not "to never die ever, so I need the cookie cutter spec with *these* exact enchants and *these* exact gems." Cherish this time right now with nerfed dungeons and let people experiment. If wiping in a dungeon or having a group fall apart ruins your entire day, maybe you should take a deep breath and step away from the computer for a second.

Jul 29th 2008 12:33PM I'd pay good money to have that be the background music that constantly plays when you're in the city.
Jul 24th 2008 12:58PM Well there is the problem. The mindset that hunters NEED to kill things faster than 30 seconds a pop. Can't we slow down and just enjoy the game?
It's the argument of the person who consistantly goes 10 MPH over the speed limit. You only run into the people who slow you down because you insist on going so fast.
Jul 24th 2008 11:33AM Don't hunters have something on a 30 second cooldown that wipes aggro for them?
I play a hunter, too. I've learned that part of being a hunter is recognizing that it's okay to stop shooting for 5 or 6 seconds to let your pet attack the mob alone. The pet isn't in danger of dying if you stop DPS for a bit, trust me.
Jul 18th 2008 10:49AM I'd love to see an article on here about why you SHOULDN'T play the beta. Am I alone in feeling like I'd hate to play the beta, level up to however much I can, and then just have to do it all over again when the expansion actually comes out?
Plus the more you play the beta, the more jaded and bored with the expansion you'll be when it actually comes out, right? I feel like I'm missing some larger element of the mentality behind beta-testers, and why they'd want to do it in the first place.
Jul 10th 2008 8:12AM Honestly, I think I'd go do anything else. I already play so infrequently that another 5 hours wouldn't matter.
