Manga Review: World of Warcraft: Mage {WoW}

Jun 30th 2010 7:57AM Don't forget his claim that he invented Death Knights in the interview with him that was posted here a while back!

Cataclysm Leak: Mastery formulas {WoW}

May 13th 2010 10:10PM So they get black balls. Wow. If they change said balls into ravens like the scarlet shadow priests then it's cool. Otherwise they are just giving them back shadowguard...

The Queue: Quelling subversion {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 4:02AM It's a relic from BC when Kaelthas was in charge. They just never removed it or the random propaganda text.

Cataclysm Class Changes: Mage Analysis {WoW}

Apr 12th 2010 12:25AM "My only concern with time warp is the name itself. It just doesn't sound right to me. Sounds more sci-fi than WoW-fi. Also, the song from Rocky Horror Picture Show starts playing in my head and I have to hit myself with a hammer to make the music stop."


You're playing a game with an alien race that came through a stargate to invade another planet after blowing up their own. After which the other alien race stole spaceships that travel through time and crashed them onto said planet. Oh yeah, that race worships glowing wind chimes. Also a race of midgets nuked their own Underground Metropolis which is now full of robots. Undead chemists are building biological weapons. Goblins are on a chunk of rock floating in space building rocket ships.

Shall I go on? It's already High Fantasy, complaining you don't like one name of a spell for not fitting into this convoluted game is silly.

Swag Saturday: Reading! [update] {Joystiq}

Apr 10th 2010 9:51PM Honestly. I'll read most of them whilst taking a dump. Then use what I learned to be a know it all online.

Breakfast Topic: The motivations of guild leaders {WoW}

Apr 10th 2010 6:54PM I ran a smaller raiding guild in BC. By smaller I mean Tier 4 and ZA. We had about 55 active members at any given time, and probably 140 accounts. Originally my small guild merged with a medium sized guild on nathrezim. After about 6 months, said guild started to fall apart due to the leader going through a divorce. That and the co-leader turned into a drama whore. I stepped up and took everyone from that guild to my old guild which had been my alt guild/bank.

With new leadership, everyone got very into the game again. We started running kara. Prior to that nobody ran kara in either guild. I even leveled a druid that I had sitting at 30 for years just to offtank for us. It was a good time. Pugs would run kara with us to fill out whatever spot we couldn't fill at the time, then without fail ask for a guild invite by the end of the run. I like to think they weren't asking to try to get gear, but rather because of the hijinks on ventrillo. 85% of the time this was the case. There was the occasional ninja who would get a lot of gear and gquit over something minor. But mostly people seemed in for life.

Then the stupid fucking bow from Prince happened. For two months my gf would raid with us on her hunter, the only hunter we had. The bow would never drop. Ever. Eventually her pc took a crap and she couldn't raid. So I would raid on my druid offtanking. Then switch out to her hunter for prince. This situation was explained in detail to a hunter that joined us, who also brought an amazing holy paladin with him. He disagreed and felt that despite months of farming for the bow, he should get it on his first night in the guild.

Quietly the tension would build and he'd stop talking in vent once we finished Chess every week. No bow. Then the unthinkable happened. We had 18 people on wanting to run kara one week. Rather than be a dick to 8 people, I made the decision to have two groups which made a lot of people angry as they viewed it as A group B group. The groups got split VERY fairly as:

My group: Took a prot paladin who could solo tank it all, me on my lock who was 80 12 hours, our second highest dps (elemental shaman), a friend of mine who everyone hated but could heal well.

Thier group: Our best geared tank (warrior), Our usually holy paladin who had been hording prot gear for months and talking about tanking, The good holy paladin healer, the hunter who wanted the bow, our top dps period (lock), some new people that were all friends with the warrior & holy paladin & hunter.

In the end I had the very very core of what I needed to run kara, and they had to pug TWO dps. I filled my group with whatever shitty players were interested. They never got off the ground at all, pissed that both normal tanks (myself on an alt and the prot paladin) were in the same group. There was insane drama all night on vent. A lot of feelings got hurt by nothing. I kept my mouth shut mostly, only sounding off at the VERY end.

The very end was this: The bow dropped for our run. It went to a rogue as nobody else could even use a bow. This of course was my fault. Cut to a mass exodus of the other hunter's friends.

My only actual statement was "If you ran heroic slave pens and Quag's Eye dropped, I couldn't be pissed at you if I wasn't in the run could I?"

The OverAchiever: Twenty-five tabards, part 3 {WoW}

Jan 7th 2010 10:39PM The tabard vendor in Dalaran can switch out the two Illidari Trophy Tabards if you want to change colors.

ProTip: If you do the quest now, when you the box with the tabard in it, it's possible to open the box without looting it. Say you get green in said box. Go to the Tabard vendor and choose the option "I've lost my purple TTotIS". he'll give you the purple. Then loot your green out of the box. BAM you have both.

Yes this is from Wowhead not me. Just reposting it.
