The Queue: From Hell's heart I stab at thee... {WoW}

Feb 13th 2009 12:25AM I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Troll Patrol daily in Zul'Drak. Sure, it takes up 5 or 6 of your dailies, but 50+ g in 10 minutes isn't bad if you can't stand to do 25 dailies anyway.

Breakfast Topics: 37! In a row? {WoW}

Jan 24th 2009 10:28PM In the early days of the expansion, when respawn rates were slightly ridiculous, my protadin was in combat outside of Warsong Hold for a good 30 minutes straight.

Some classes don't have the option of *not* going on a killing spree.

Encrypted Text: From brute to assassin, 2008 in review {WoW}

Jan 1st 2009 5:02PM Blendless:

When you're out questing, try

Cheap Shot -> Mutilate -> Kidney Shot -> Mutilate -> Mutilate

If you've specced properly and your gear is half-decent, then your average quest mob should be dead by now and hasn't had a chance to touch you. If it's actually still alive, throw in an evis on the end for good measure.

Nov 8th 2008 2:33PM I think there's a cream you can get for that. Ask your doctor.

World of Warcraft 3.0.3 Patch notes {WoW}

Nov 3rd 2008 10:52PM Regarding Fan of Knives...

Am I missing something, or is it odd that we're patching a level 80 ability a week before the expansion?

A matter of dedication {WoW}

May 10th 2008 3:40PM I sense much anger in this one.

I really don't get the rage against the raiding game. "I hate raiding because I don't have time to do it/ I can't get 24 people to agree to my lack of commitment." That seems more like a personal issue than a game mechanic problem. I went from raiding t5 when I was working part-time to doing Kara on my alt one or two nights a week when I started a new job. Would I have liked to continue progressing, even though I'm working 50-60 hours a week instead of 20? Sure. Can I be a semi-serious raider and manage a company at the same time? No. Is that the game's fault? Absolutely not.

As far as applications and commitments go, yes, even casual guilds have apps. Why not? Do you expect to join people you don't know, possibly being a detriment to their game time, purely on a "I need a guild" post in trade? You think a guild shouldn't be allowed to check your spec, gear, and grasp of the English language before accepting you? Entitlement at its finest. And sure, 75 people can join up to raid 25-man content 1 or 2 nights a week, whoever can make it can make it. But the likelyhood is that either 25 people are going to show up on a regular basis and you're going to complain about not getting a spot over someone who shows up every week, or less than 25 are going to show up on a regular basis, get fed up with the rest of you, and go join another guild.

Some people can dedicate more time to this game than others. Some people have different goals in this game than others. Some people *like* raiding on a regular schedule with people they know and trust. Some processes and procedures have been instituted by the community themselves as a way to make the best of their time in this game. So it goes.

Gruul scaled down to 8-man raid (not really) {WoW}

Apr 15th 2008 3:42PM Now if they 5-manned HKM on the way in I'd be really impressed...

Dear Blizzard : Server issues {WoW}

Feb 24th 2008 4:34PM And there shouldn't be an "e" on the end of "quit," obviously.
