The Queue: That paladin doesn't know what he's talking about {WoW}

Mar 1st 2010 3:25PM I'm a Prot Pally, and what I generally to to prevent mana problems is just skip Consecrate in my rotation. That saves over 1k mana per rotation, and it's really un-needed to keep threat. There's plenty of DPS to cover not using it.

I agree with the folks who are fed up over "snobs" who bitch about whatever (DPS "too low", not pulling fast enough, can't keep threat from a guy doing 4.5k DPS, not enough heals...) because it's keeping them from finishing a heroic in 15 minutes. My two thoughts:

- I'm not here to max out your ability to grind emblems. If you want to run 10 heroics in 4 hours, go find 4 other people as defective as you are. I'll pull as fast as the *group* can handle, not just the healer (unless someone is griefing on the slow end or something). I'm not going to leave the DPS behind because I'm in a hurry. They're here to have fun too.

- One of the points/strengths of the Dungeon Finder is that the overgeared can help the undergeared get gear. I'm happy to run with newly minted 80s, or people who aren't averaging iLvl 242+ gear. It's nice to see someone actually roll need on boss drops, instead of 5 people spamming disenchant. If someone doesn't have a heroic achievement (with a few exceptions), I feel like I've failed as a party member if they *don't* get the achievement. As long as you're trying, and willing to listen to advice (don't stand on the oddly colored ground, try to get behind bosses instead of next to me...) you're fine by me.

Mar 1st 2010 3:15PM What the paladin was wrong about was his belief that overheals would give the 10% mana bonus that "normal" heals give. He wanted his healer to keep overhealing him so he'd have enough mana.

Breakfast Topic: How many of you play on a Mac? {WoW}

Nov 21st 2009 10:13AM Where is the option for both? I have a MacBook Pro laptop, and a custom built PC home desktop, and the WoW client installed on both. My one beef with the Mac client is that I have yet to find a way to make the CMD/Splat key be the ALT key. I'm so accustomed to ALT being just left of the space bar, and that's just not the case on the Mac. Not a big deal, in the end.

Buyer's Guide: 33 things you don't need if you have an iPhone {}

Nov 20th 2009 12:24PM Great. A list of things most high-end smart phones can do. And anyone that thinks any smartphone can replace even a netbook is drunk on the kool-aid. Maybe if Apple would allow the creation of BT keyboards, the most useful way an iPhone can be a netbook would be as a way to tether for net access. Oh, wait.

Happy Loot-idays from WoW Insider: Day one {WoW}
