Jan 24th 2011 6:12PM Going out on a limb, but there were a whoooole lot of people who refused to discover Stonecore and those people became very popular companions for random heroics because it made sure the group wouldn't get Stonecore.
This isn't Blizzard saying, "Hey, let's make it easier!" it's "Nice try, suckers. Get thee to Stonecore!"
Jun 18th 2009 9:35AM Great, now I'm going to have Ambassador D'Vinn and Crushbone train flashbacks all day.
Like that's what I needed...
May 27th 2009 9:44AM If by "frolic" you mean sitting around waiting for Blizzard to fix authentication issues that just impact those of us who did the stupid Battle.net conversion while the rest of the people actually play the game, then yes.
We've been frolicking our asses off.
May 13th 2009 1:33PM Easy example: There's a Thunderstorm glyph for shaman with a proc that gets rid of the knockback effect so that tanks don't have to scramble after mobs and then stab you in the face for making them work harder. In PVE it's a must.
In PVP, there is NOTHING more fun than running onto the Eye of the Storm bridge and Thunderstorming a dozen Hordies with the knockback into the Twisting Nether — so you would want that knockback there.
May 13th 2009 11:47AM Probably because it's the only DAMN THING THAT DROPS!!!
Apr 3rd 2009 6:59PM Shhhhhhh!
She just didn't have time to find something better. She's trying to think!
After all, all she wanted to do was to study.
Mar 21st 2009 5:37PM Do you know what sucks?
A priest casting Divine Hymn when MC'd by Kel'thuzad and stunning the raid.
We had already lost the achievement for the night, so it served as a teachable moment to blow the cooldowns before starting the fight next week, but just imagine losing it to THAT.
Mar 8th 2009 5:01PM Hymn of Understanding: Makes trolls understand that writing for both a legitimate journalistic product and a blog can contain analysis, humor and suggestions — not merely limited to a dry recitation of facts and math. Makes trolls understand that the world doesn't revolve around them, their wishes or their deeply flawed understanding of the universe both real and imaginary.
Add this to the list of hymns that will NEVER happen.
Feb 11th 2009 1:35PM This is the kind of tank I like.
I have your health bar on my screen. I'm staring at it. I time my heals, I know the situation, but if something is going to change with your mitigation or the environment that I CAN'T SEE, that is information healers need to know.
If you miss getting out of the pound on Anub'rekhan that is information that will help.
If you just popped last stand or gave me shield wall through a particularly nasty phase, that is information that will get me ready for a spike.
If you are going to get hit with Sapphiron's blizzard and are going to spike a little, that is going to get the heal team ready to keep you standing before the next air phase.
For God's sake, if you're tanking the adds on Kel and get iceblocked that is information every healer in the raid needs to know ASAP.
Notice, all of this is information that is relevant and useful. It's not shrieking "I NEED HEALS!" at the top of your lungs like a school girl high on Pixie Sticks and crystal meth.
Feb 5th 2009 3:48PM This maybe true, but once you are really rolling around in good gear we don't go out of mana in current encounters either.
Outside of Patchwerk spam healfest, Sapphiron shorthanded with no frost resistance and Sartharion with drakes, a halfway decent geared restoration shaman should have zero mana problems.
