Welcome to! {WoW}

May 20th 2009 1:18PM Ok, I am really supportive of WoWInsider and I wish them all the best. You guys are awesome.

The new sight looks amazing, but I have one MAJOR problem.

I can't comment on entries with my "Newfangled Social Networking Wow.Com Account"


When I click on AOL, it wont let me type in the fields.... I literally cannot change or type in the Username/Email and Password boxes. Yes, I am on OSX.

Encrypted Text: Tips for key binding your Rogue abilities {WoW}

Apr 15th 2009 3:33PM I realized when I read this how odd my movement is...

I only use Q, W, and E for moving. W = forward, Q and E are strafing. I use both mouse buttons for running forward as well when I need to be using my left hand for buttons.

I have no problem using 1-6, F1-F6 on a keyboard that has these buttons stacked relatively vertically. Otherwise, I use the surrounding keys A, S, D, F, and R.

The only thing I did that is "radical" is change V to jump and use my spacebar for kick. I really don't jump that much really and v is easily reachable by my left thumb which is resting on space at all times.

Encrypted Text: Rogue defenses need to lose the RNG {WoW}

Mar 25th 2009 6:05PM I've always thought

1. The fact that Cloak does not provide 100% immunity was really a slap in the face. Never any GOOD reason for this other than to make the ability USELESS 1/10 spells.

2. Vanish is pathetic during combat and always has been. The fact that this is the most unbelievably fragile ability in the game just irks me. There was a (very) short time when we had Cheat Death and it ROCKED and everyone (including paladins - go figure) Q Q Q Q Q Q Q'd until they made USELESS in Wrath. Anyway, it's a real slap in the face for Blizzard to repeat again and again "Vanish is working as intended" when their INTENT is what's broken in the first place.

Proposed solution: Combine Cloak and Vanish into one spell that removes all targeted effects and clears bleeds. For 5 seconds you are untargetable unless YOU end vanish by performing an attack. It's a counterspell that's usable at most 2 times every five minutes. About 80% of the time I am cloaking prior to vanishing anyway...

As for Cheat Death, just make it do what it's supposed to: 100% damage reduction for 3 seconds when someone would land a killing blow. Feh. Simplify the game, don't make it so RNG-based.

Insider Trader: Twink gathering controversy, updated {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2009 8:08PM Thanks for the mention, WoWinsider!

This is a pretty huge development that I was unaware of. I've been working on my 59 death knight, but I had thought of re-entering the crazy world of 19s. I keep hoping for a "don't gain XP" option in the game and I've never really understood the rationale preventing it.

This may be the biggest twink buff ever seen - bigger than fishing hat or clefthide. The stamina buff is the main thing that's critical for 19s. It's really going to be tough to increase dps to match that - seems like rogue is basically the only option now, although a druid/pally flag carrier is basically unstoppable at this point. I think I'm going to put my 19 career re-entry on hold a little longer to see how this gets sorted out.

Was it true about the "bugged weapon" that caused rends to tick for 100? Never confirmed that or saw that it got fixed.
