Patch 4.3 PTR: Replica armor, heirlooms, and death knight starting gear {WoW}

Nov 6th 2011 6:45PM I think the availability of the DK starting gear again is the second most desired feature of 4.3 for me. The first being Transmogg itself.

Otherwise, can we skip ahead to Pandera yet?

12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway Day 11: SteelSeries Siberia Headset {WoW}

The Queue: For the troubled tooth, for the troubled tooth {WoW}

Jan 1st 2011 3:47PM *******************************************************************************
Granted, that's partly because much of Cata was focused on the non-endgame

But it does feel like I'm at the "sit around in Dal/Org waiting for queues to pop or guildies to log on" state way too early compared to Wrath.
*******************************************************************************

What to do now is to go back and level new alts. That's blizzards plan.

But oops, they forgot to give us more character slots to make them with.
And oops again, if you do that, you're giving up that queue you're waiting on with your 85s.
- They need to let us buy more character slots, and they need account based instance queuing. Log into my account, pick a queue and which toon to enter it with. Heck, pick a toon for each role maybe - and then when it pops and I hit enter, It switches me to that toon and moves me into the dungeon.
- Might be too complex to code in, but wouldn't that be nice?



Shifting Perspectives: Predictions for Cataclysm druids {WoW}

Oct 6th 2010 1:13AM If tanks, DPS, and healers are getting nerfed. All of them...

Then I guess the good news is that we're all in the same boat. Resto is getting nerfed, but perhaps hopefully no more than anyone else.

Its the folks who get more nerfed than the average that will have to worry. But that said, I'd welcome paladins getting a heavier nerf bat than others just because there are too many of them out there... Just nerfing them down to being equal with other classes would be enough to get rid of many of them.

Shifting Perspectives: Predictions for Cataclysm druids {WoW}

Oct 5th 2010 10:07PM My druid is less geared than my warrior or my DKs, and about similar to my paladin - and I find its the easiest one of the set to lock down aggro on.

Swipe is like a 0-cooldown consecrate / thunderclap. Set up the right macros, and keep shifting in some single target hits, and threat is easy. Dance around to position well. and hit your mitigations enough, and survivability is amazing.

At least in heroics - the Bear seems the best of the bunch for me on the live servers.

Shifting Perspectives: Predictions for Cataclysm druids {WoW}

Oct 5th 2010 9:53PM Druid tanks have been unusually rare in Wrath - something I hadn't given much thought to before.

It'll be interesting to see that change.

I am somewhat dreading how PUG tanking will be, and I guess I need to rebuild my guild or move on soon so I can take advantage of being a guild tank and getting guild experience now. What really worries me is that if as tank I let DPS eat the aggro pull, I'll have to deal with a healer trying to heal them. And if as a healer, I don't heal DPS that pull, I'll have to deal with chasing a tank that tries to save them. And in either case; I'll have to deal with getting vote kicked by bad DPS for a few months or more...

Breakfast Topic: Are real-life friendships more "real" than in-game friendships? {WoW}

Oct 3rd 2010 3:43PM I just can't see WoW or any other MMO friends in the same light and level as RL friends. Too many of them, even ones who've known for years; will just log off one day or quit guild or change game or server without a second thought to the relationships.

Unless you take it out to a RL connection as well, there's always that gap that some will not even think twice about cutting off. And as a result, there's always also a segment like me that 'keeps a safe distance.'

Major Cataclysm currency changes {WoW}

Sep 14th 2010 1:08PM Lol.

Good idea.

Now just watch them convert those badges of justice into 1000 -copper- and not gold... :D

But chances are yeah - it'll be a good amount of gold and soloing kara might be a worthy consideration. Too bad raid bosses only reset once a week.

Major Cataclysm currency changes {WoW}

Sep 14th 2010 1:06PM Unless the conversion rate is something absurd, this will still make getting t10 easier. But that's no big deal - might as well make it easier to get as we get closer to the new xpac.

Come day 1 of Cataclysm, and no one will want that t10 anymore, even if it ends up better than level 85 greens - simply because we'll all we'll be looking forward and not backwards. So they might as well try to squeeze out every last bit of use of t10 before cataclysm launches.

Cataclysm Beta: Build 12942 warrior changes {WoW}

Sep 12th 2010 1:47PM I scanned down, read that Taunt moved to level 12, and then wondered why the rest of the article was even there. :)

Then I remembered not everybody plays a tank. This round of patches looks like it didn't do much up or down for tanks.

Noticed the bit about Heroic Strike which reminded me that I'll need to remove it from my macros come Cata as it won't be my 'queue up for bonus threat' move anymore. I keep forgetting that - I keep forgetting it even exists.
