WoW Insider is looking for a warlock columnist {WoW}

Feb 7th 2012 3:25PM I had nothing to do with any of this, but I am fully prepared to accept full credit for all of it.

Do mages really need 3 competitive PvE specs? {WoW}

Feb 4th 2012 5:27PM Hey now, it wasn't overt, but I very specifically mentioned killing warlocks and Hot Topic in the same sentence at one point up there.

Arcane Brilliance: New Year's resolutions for mages {WoW}

Dec 31st 2011 4:02PM Dammit. I resolve to stop being such a dummy.

Arcane Brilliance: Blinking into the Mists of Pandaria talent calculator, part 1 {WoW}

Nov 26th 2011 6:00PM Yeesh, I fixed it, but holy cow. Is there such a thing as too much pie? I firmly believe the answer is a hearty, pie-choked "no!" but after a blunder like that I have to wonder. Yeah, Shatter will work as it should, by tripling your crit chance, not your damage. Thanks for setting me straight. Now if you'll excuse me, I have an impending engagement with some leftover blackberry pie.

Arcane Brilliance: Adventures with and observations on the Raid Finder {WoW}

Nov 5th 2011 10:32PM No no, you don't understand. I was talking about players' lack of ability to be "lead," the dense metal. If we were all more dense and metallic, I think the world would be a better place.

Sigh.

Arcane Brilliance: A preliminary look at the Pandaria talent tree for mages {WoW}

Oct 29th 2011 5:47PM Well, good news! They won't. I'd be surprised if even the basic mechanic they've laid out here makes it to the live servers intact, let alone the specific talents as they've suggested them. It's OK to feel disappointed in what we've seen so far, but we still have a very long time and a boatload of rigorous testing between this unveil and patch 5.0. When the beta hits, we'll know more, and you can bet I'll be testing the crap out of this nonsense and giving feedback like crazy. Don't re-roll a warlock yet, everybody. In fact, don't re-roll a warlock. Ever. Better yet, locate the nearest warlock, and Double Polymorph him. Then blow him up. Both of him. I don't care if that makes no sense, make it happen.

Arcane Brilliance: News and notes from the patch 4.3 PTR {WoW}

Oct 15th 2011 4:56PM This has also been fixed. My mother dropped me on my head as a child. Repeatedly. My doctor thinks it's a triumph anytime I manage to string words together in any sort of meaningful configuration, so mistakes like these are, quite frankly, to be expected.

Arcane Brilliance: News and notes from the patch 4.3 PTR {WoW}

Oct 15th 2011 4:54PM This has been corrected, and the lesson, as always, is I'm an idiot.

Arcane Brilliance: On mage healing and other miscellany {WoW}

Sep 24th 2011 5:21PM I know, right? A little mexican fried chicken, a little crystal meth ... and you know Gustavo Fring probably has a kickass secret sauce ...

Arcane Brilliance: On mage healing and other miscellany {WoW}

Sep 24th 2011 5:18PM Selfloathius realized he hated himself so much that his only recourse was to simply cease to exist. He'd killed himself in so many ways ... standing on a brazier while Lifetapping, leaping from ludicrously high places, charging into battle against foes that he knew were too powerful, strolling into a crowd of mages humming a Fallout Boy song ... but those deaths, while satisfyingly painful, just weren't permanent enough for Selfloathius. He soon understood: the only way to cease to be, was simply to stop logging in.

Still, the unending oblivion of simply standing alone on a log-in screen, never clicking the button that would thrust him unwillingly back into the world -- well, was just boring. Every day, Selfloathius stared at his own stupid warlock face on that log-in screen, wondering, "is today the day I kill myself again?"

... ah crap. Now I kinda want to play the little douchebag again.
