Mists of Pandaria Beta: New warlock pets {WoW}

Mar 24th 2012 3:53PM If the incubus has the same abilities as the succy, then it's almost like a cosmetic change. (And thus I'd hope one could glyph for it.)

The holdup may be deciding what the majority of those who'd like male eyecandy would be happy with. Me, I's want a Sephiroth clone in a black leather thong, but I imagine others might like something more bara, for example.

P.S. Might not want to assume that all who want an incubus are women - or that all women want one.

BlizzCon Ticket Status: Sold out today -- on sale again this Saturday {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2010 10:39PM Got in fast, was 4484 in queue - and still missed out again.

Glad to see we're supporting the ebay economy.

P.S. If the stream this year is the same provider as last year, I hope they've finessed the technology = because it was crap, We essentially paid $40 for a pet.

Breakfast Topic: How realms evolve (or don't) {WoW}

May 28th 2010 8:15AM "Is it really that simple as a relatively small number of players exercising such an impact on what happens to everyone on the server?"

Possibly. I can say that in the two years that I played alliance on a relatively balanced server, I never once had Horde interfere with lowbie quests. It wasn't until I rolled some Horde toons on that same server that I encountered the sort of lowbie griefing that makes it almost impossible to quest.

15 Minutes of Fame: The solo artist {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2010 8:23PM Very cool - the Triumph of gear PLUS SKILL.

Bravo~!

WoW Moviewatch: This is Why I'm Prot {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2010 12:17PM Liked the verses MUCH more than the chorus (which was repetitive squared.). The text was well done, nicely placed.

Breakfast Topic: Hi ho Silver, away! {WoW}

Feb 1st 2010 8:16AM Favorite that I have? My druid's Winterspring Froststsaber (earned mostly before the rep buffs) the Skyguard nether rays, and my priest's blue protodrake.

Favorites that I do not have? The phoenix mount, hands down. The ironbound Protodrake. I also very much like all the old vanilla mounts such as the Ivory Raptor.

Addon Spotlight: Vuhdo {WoW}

Jan 30th 2010 11:31PM seconded _ I've tried Sage, Pitbull, X-Perl, AG_UF, and one other (can't recall the name) and SUF is the one I've stuck with for party / target frames.

As for the article topic: a long-time Grid user, I tried Vuhdu - and while it was nice out of the box, I rapidly got quite tangled up once I tried to configure and customize.
~ Granted, Grid isn't intuitive either, but I'm used to it.

Trinkets: Hard to get, and Blizzard likes it that way {WoW}

Jan 29th 2010 6:14PM .. and it bears a mention too that the current random LFG - which I love and use daily on multiple toons - is completely screwed up in terms of trinket loot rules.

Example: Forge Ember ( H HoS)- which for a new 80 is a damn decent trinket - cannot be Needed by a caster. It can only be Greeded (or Disenchanted).

I've almost never seen it drop, but a few weeks ago it dropped on melee-heavy runs with my mage and lock - and it got DE' both times.

Breakfast Topic: Fun with time travel {WoW}

Jan 28th 2010 9:16AM I'd like to save Sha'ni Proudtusk. Her fate as as bad (and possibily worse) than Mrs. Mankrik.

Blood Pact: Mistakes other people make {WoW}

Jan 25th 2010 6:27PM I play all 4 healing classes. I also have 2 warlocks. And I PUG a ton, so I'm chipping in.

As a lock, I'm always proactive about SS and healthstones. I always have a bag full of shards, and will shatter or Drain Soul if the threat gets crazy. Out of combat, if I have to LT six or seven times to fill my bar back up I'll sit and eat the free mage food, or bandage. (And I'll tell the healer, "Nah, don't waste your mana if we're out of combat.") I don't Fear unless it's absolutely required. ~ I DO LT once when I see the tank getting ready to pull, to activate the glyph, but ONLY ONCE - at that point I don't expect a heal, though it's certainly appreciated. ~ I only "expect" heals on my pet if the pet is off-tanking. I have been known to bandage my minion out of combat.

As a healer - yes, I'll buff and heal pets. I'll risk heal aggro taking care of the aggro-stealing DPS (as long as the tank is in good shape), but I do have a limited ability to heal stupidity and recklessness. ~ If the lock LTs during combat I'll toss a HoT of the appropriate size and strength. ~ I appreciate locks that bandage and eat if they LT to fumes out of combat, because, especially in PUGs, I usually am too busy running after the tank (it's rare that I can both loot AND drink .. let alone blow a huge insta-heal cooldown (or 2 or 3 smaller spells) on a lock who is standing there with his finger up his nose.
