How to be useful on the PTR {WoW}

Feb 21st 2009 7:18PM amusingly enough, exactly the kind of feedback she characterized as bad.

it's like a meta-joke!

Breakfast Topic: Gonna check out Ulduar on the PTR? {WoW}

Feb 19th 2009 8:21AM here's my question. Why did you use a picture of a t7.5 prot paladin for this article?

Seriously though, yes, we'll be in your PTR's, learning your Bosses.

The Queue: It's always sunny in Azeroth {WoW}

Feb 18th 2009 8:28AM I believe you meant fallacy.

logic troll failed grammar check, Holisky makes a resistance check, takes half damage.

Will dual specs eliminate the tank or healer shortage? {WoW}

Feb 17th 2009 12:34PM there will be more healers and tanks, but there will be more BAD healers and tanks.

This will make the healer/tank audition much more rigorous, imo.

There's only a healer/tank shortage in pugs, actually, theres a tank surplus in guild raiding. If anything, this will just make it more likely that people will have geared specs they can't play fully.

It will likely make it easier to get groups, but harder to clear difficult instances (imagine a ret dual spec healing Loken for the first time in quest green spellpower gear) This will mostly just force more in depth skill/spec/gear discussion prior to running a pug.

But then again, for people that don't have a regular tank/healer friended, it may make the quest shorter, even if you do wind up with less than stellar group members.

Breakfast Topic: Dual specs {WoW}

Feb 17th 2009 10:23AM pve prot/pvp holy for my pally

pve unholy/pvp unholy for my DK

Officers' Quarters: Four lessons from the inauguration {WoW}

Jan 26th 2009 1:11PM Well put.

In before the hate.

I'm glad to see correlations between the game that's been the focus of so much of my attention these past few years and the leadership of our country which has slowly faded from the attentions of so many of my countrymen. This is an opportunity for us as Americans and as Humans to refocus our efforts on improving the quality of life for all people, and also to focus on getting Shadron down fast enough to keep the tank alive on Sarth3d.

I hope we make the best of it.

The Queue: Archdruids? Nahh. Okay, maybe. {WoW}

Jan 16th 2009 3:23PM here's my questions for the queue. whatever happened to tank talk? I don't think I've seen one since September or so...

Addon Spotlight: Friend & Ignore Share {WoW}

Jan 12th 2009 7:34AM DoIKnowYou is a pretty useful complement to any friends-list-sharing mod. it allows you to give ratings and notes for names that are persistent across all alts on a server. the other nice feature of doiknowyou is to sync ratings with other members of your guild, so you can get a lot of feedback form just a name in the LFG channel as well...:)

Officers' Quarters: Friends in high places {WoW}

Jan 10th 2009 6:31PM I'm in a similar situation. I followed a RL friend from our old semi casual guild to a newer semi raiding guild after our initial casual guild fell apart after wrath came out. Our old GL and officer core essentially stopped playing, and 6 or 8 of us hit 80 and languished for a month without raiding or scheduling in guild heroics. At a certain point, those of us who were still active decided to join a guild with whom we'd been running 10 mans. Now we're in a similar position in the new guild as the one we'd just left. The officer core and a few of us are all as geared as we can be form 10 man's and are pugging 25 man's externally to the guild. Fresh 80's never get to learn in 10 man's and never get invited to our 25 man's for lack of gear. We've discussed within the more geared portion of the guild a variety of solutions, including including a few newer raiders at a time in our badge farming 10 man runs, and running heroics with them, but unfortunately, we're still hemorrhaging fresh ding 80's to guilds that run multiple 10 man's, and fear for our ability to field 25 people for an in guild raid before Ulduar comes out. I'm curious to get some suggestions. So far our game plan is to continue pugging the rest of 25 man's, but trying to bring in guildies as they get gear/skills, and fill needed slots (basically just dps, as we have more than enough tanks and healers already...)
