Breakfast Topic: Are sexy transmog sets OK in your raid group? {WoW}

Mar 17th 2012 10:14AM Family based guild, or similar deal, could have objections, but they'll have like minded members(normally) so that won't be too big of a deal for those it matters too.

Now, if a pug freaks out, well, I'm tanking in a lovely black dress every chance I get, just to spite them.

What are multiboxers and how do you fight one in PvP? {WoW}

Mar 1st 2012 4:16PM Glaras, multi-boxed tanks/healers tend to be pretty terrible at both as a result of having to split up between two very different roles. I'm sure most of them could play one character decently, and there might even be a few who can do both well, but for the most part it'll be tanking OR healing at any given moment, which isn't good when both need to be prepared to react at a moments notice.

The Queue: Pandaren dance {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 4:18PM re:title - I don't think we'll see a Pandaren dance, so much as we'll see an early in carnation of the dance studio. Animation revamp seems like a good time for it, and that'd be a reaaally nice suprise feature.

The Queue: Rule of Two {WoW}

Feb 20th 2012 6:14PM Last I heard, they pull from the data centres, which used to house multiple battlegroups. Similar idea to region, but smaller.

The Queue: Rule of Two {WoW}

Feb 20th 2012 4:49PM Renew on tank, heal chakra, pom your life out and coh/binding heal your little heart out as required. Toss the odd heal/chakra heal on the tank to keep renew rolling.

Is there such a thing as casually hardcore? {WoW}

Feb 17th 2012 8:00PM Well, yes there is, obviously

Hardcore Softcore is about how much effort you put into playing when you do. Game face, 110%, "looljusta gaem", etc.

Casual Dedicated is about how often you play. If you just play when you have a spare hour or two, that's casual. The more "I will play wow between x and y on Nday" you add, the more dedicated you are, because you're making it a part of your life. Even three hours on a sunday night is dedicated time.

Casually hardcore is the same as a hardcore casual - they don't play often, but when they do, they own face. A dedicated softcore would be someone who plays six hours a night and doesn't try. The most common demographic seems to be about 60% hardcoreness, with about 30% dedicatedness(not using "tion" is intentional), in that they put effort in, but not enough to try and be the bestest to any degree, and they only really adhere to a schedule of a few hours raiding.

Kalimdor completely recreated in Minecraft {WoW}

Feb 8th 2012 7:10PM You didn't play with lego as a child, did you?

It's okay man, we're here for you.

New Blizzard forum personality to focus on lore and story {WoW}

Feb 7th 2012 10:08PM The funny part Chris, is the Draenei don't have space flight - they move via the nether. It's kind of like the TARDIS, only without time travel - they stop being in one place, and start being in another, as far as this universe is concerned.

Breakfast Topic: What parts of gameplay do you consider a chore? {WoW}

Feb 4th 2012 9:27AM Dailies.

Farming old transmog sets from past heroics.

Dailies.

Leveling through outland. Again. Hold me..

Dailies.

Therazane.

Therazane Dailies.

Trying to find a new guild that's nice, friendly, and doesn't require me to aggravate my social anxieties.

Yeah, you get the idea.

5 common mistakes paladin tanks make {WoW}

Feb 3rd 2012 8:31PM Five common mistakes and you don't talk about using spells with a cast time while being actively hit(Exo, I'm looking at you)?
