Hunter Growl and Scare Beast changes not so sweet after all {WoW}

May 14th 2008 12:50AM Would you be happy for Druids to get insta-sleep on your beast pets?

Racism in arena names {WoW}

May 13th 2008 5:25PM OMG there are 10 arena teams called that, lol. I am white, and I do not find an imperative to murder people of my race to be either racist or offensive.
What else are arena teams for except to exact bloody victory through swift and murderous tactics? Gotta get psyched somehow. I can't believe all these people are upset over Rosa and are happy to turn a blind eye to this call for race-based killing.

However in real life I may find it disturbing. Escpecially on a T-shirt in south auckland.

Racism in arena names {WoW}

May 13th 2008 5:13PM This article is something I truly struggle with:

"One of the reasons I enjoy WoW and just games in general is because it allows us to escape the problems this world gives to us..."

You escape into a world whose ethnic boundaries are far more distinct and thoroughly bloodthirsty than our own, where principals of ethnic strife and vehicle of ethnic cleansing is rewarded at every level of society. It encourages a quick trigger, blade or ball of flame at the sheer recognition of different skin or body type. WoW prohibits the free communication, trading or reconciliation between factions even when engaged as "allies" in a military campaign (SSO).

Actually - WoW is an open text, full of rich and varied interpretations. So too "Rose Parks stole my bus seat" is not a open-closed case of being thoroughly racist nor offensive - by saying it is you erase the possibility of interpretation, parody, inter-textualism or self-reflexive comedy. Would it be racist if Rosa Parks herself actually founded that arena team, or if its players were all black?

The science of snagging a tag {WoW}

May 12th 2008 5:58PM The bane of my levelling and grinding as a Warlock is when a Hunter tags a mob that I have 2-3 dot's up on. A feign death later and then there's nothing left for me to do other than kill the mob for the hunter.

Know Your Lore: Oshu'gun {WoW}

May 8th 2008 8:56PM I think this wordplay can also be considered in this example:

Refugees = escaping or"exiled" people
Refuge = safe place for anyone who absconds

Should Blizzard allow us to deposit money in a personal bank? {WoW}

May 8th 2008 6:54PM Your savings should generate interest.

Ever surprise yourself? {WoW}

Apr 30th 2008 7:57PM My guildies got a pug healer for an Heroic ManaTombs run, this shammy had not even bought Fire Elemental or Heroism - let alone aquired the knowledge of when and how to use them. When you're on the last boss, it's one of those jaw dropping moments wtf.

Blood Pact: Destro the only way to go? {WoW}

Apr 17th 2008 5:18PM Seriously I ran H Bot yesterday with a T6 geared ele Shaman and mobs would die before I even got up all my dots (I am T4 level). I did next to no damage the entire instance, Affliction is just too slow compared to people who can stack 177+ spell haste and literally mow through things. I can see that Destro will be the way I go when I am done with finishing quests and need to actually get to the bit where I cast ShadowBolt.

Proudmoore server hits Phase 4 first {WoW}

Apr 13th 2008 8:17PM The action bars look like Bartender3 - enhanced by some tooltip mod, maybe DrDamage I think. The top and bottom ones I'd say is FuBar but I use Titan Panel so I dont know - Titan works above and below too.

Gamers on the Street: Proud of Proudmoore {WoW}

Apr 7th 2008 7:40PM Seriously it was hard work to click on her! Big Tauren in the way I had to click on the tip of the '!' floating high about her nameplate.

Go Proudmoore - also quite likely WoW's largest LGBTI & queer population!
