The Lawbringer: Fonts and why you cannot sue Deathwing {WoW}

Nov 30th 2010 11:13AM I think, given the damage Deathwing caused WITHIN the world of Azeroth, he is absolutely within its long arm statutes, whatever they may be.

Now, is venue proper and could he remove to Federal Azeroth Court, or file a forum non cenoveniens motion.... those are the real questions.

Tigole confirms dual specs are still in the works {WoW}

Oct 5th 2008 2:29AM I just can't wait until someone says to my holy pally, "you a tank?"

"No, but gimme a sec."

"OK, now I am"

It'll be beautiful. No more half hours "LF Tank for...." heroic pugs but still being able to heal in raids.

It will be glorious.

Tigole lists informal patch notes for the next stage of the beta {WoW}

Sep 24th 2008 2:51PM That said, it does not justify people QQing every change.

Tigole lists informal patch notes for the next stage of the beta {WoW}

Sep 24th 2008 2:47PM Some of use just started this game this year and DO only have one 70 main (a holy paladin). My highest alt is a level 20 priest that I don't think would heal so well in Outland.

Addon Spotlight: Mac Dual-boxing {WoW}

Sep 21st 2008 9:25PM booooo - wowinsider ate my comment.

Long story short - a mic headset is a must - even with compensation on ambient noise makes it impossible.

Use it on a secondary, not a main. It works but not reliably.

I would use multi-syllabic words for your macros. I got around 80-90% success rate on those and 33% success on mono-syllabic words.

I didn't try movement with it - casting spells was unreliable enough that movement would have been a nightmare.

Sep 19th 2008 4:39PM Cetha, check back later this weekend and I'll post a reply to this telling you how successful I was. I'm betting for movement it will be a problem (held down key presses - but maybe autorun toggle + mouselook would work) vs. occasional key press actions.

Gamestop listing for "WorldofWarcraft Gaming Mouse" {WoW}

Sep 19th 2008 3:33PM Very easy - 5 buttons and 1 modifier button like on the n53te. So 5 buttons with "blue" profile loaded + same 5 buttons with "red" profile loaded + ... etc. = "15" buttons

Addon Spotlight: Mac Dual-boxing {WoW}

Sep 19th 2008 2:41PM Even better than dragging your mouse, you can set up synergy to hotkey jump to the other screen and hotkey it to jump back. I use it with my desktop and laptop and use 1 n52te to control both toons.

1. Start attacking with the warrior
2. pinky+index to switch to the mac
3. macro buttons for priest:
/assist warrior_name, /cast shadow word: pain
/cast renew warrior
/assist warrior_name, /cast smite

4. pinky+index to switch back to desktop
5. continue battle

Mouse doesn't move at all. The pinky+index is not the same key, but the to-desktop is right above the to-mac one

Addon Spotlight: Mac Dual-boxing {WoW}

Sep 19th 2008 2:32PM I'm not disagreeing with you - you can build a ridiculously fast desktop for cheap - but for me a Mac is all about OS X. I know it's not right for everyone (or even most people), but for what I want to do most of the time, it is the perfect OS. If I want to do "normal stuff" it just lets me do it. If I want a CLI, it's there too. And you don't even need a Pro model most of the time - I've owned iBooks, Mac Minis, and a MacBook and I've never had a problem running anything except maybe Guild Wars under Parallels.

*disclaimer* my desktop is a Dell XPS and my laptop is a MacBook. Synergy for warrior/priest dual-boxing FTW.

Back to the article, I would add that you could probably even forgo clone keys if you set up the second mac right and just use voice commands (into the second mac) to do everything. Have a "follow" voice command, "healme", "healyou", etc. I might try this when I have some time this weekend and will post what I find.
