Jun 8th 2008 1:20AM Worth mentioning is it's in the mid-20s that you can start AoE grinding.
For the uninitiated, it's basically rounding up a nice large group of mobs, freezing them with Frost Nova, making distance, slamming them a couple times with Blizzard, topping it off with Cone of Cold, and then repeating from the Frost Nova.
It used to be the method for uber mage leveling, but with the 2.3 patch questing might actually be a bit better.
Still, it's a nice change of pace from questing if you've done that a few times. Look up the video "In Frost We Trust" for more info, even though it's got a bit of outdated info it's still an excellent source.

"...just doesn't needful"
The issue isn't the word.
Jun 2nd 2008 2:56AM Kinda surprised at no mention of "Blessed Resilience".
For priests focused on PvE healing builds, but on a PvP server, this would definitely be worth eyeballing since you can pick it up with either a DS or a CoH build.
Apr 1st 2008 11:29AM This is the last nail in the coffin for me. I can't take how they're just ruining WoW. The Bard will be like the Jedi to SW:Galaxies.
Here's my forum post on the subject.
Broken, just so broken. I'm disgusted.
Apr 1st 2008 3:01AM I ninja quit my last guild. It was a raiding guild with lots of favoritism and really bad direction. When I'd joined it, the GM had been largely hands off and we had two brothers who were basically running the whole show.
One day, they got fed up and transferred servers. I don't know what happened, but I think I know what they had to deal with...
Now that the brothers were gone, the GM took control. He was selfish, petty, made hateful remarks (largely based on race or sexual preference). You couldn't get into a raid unless you were part of his inner circle or kissed a lot of ass. The guild was hemorrhaging members and he'd go into petty spiteful rants every time.
I was tired of wiping in Gruul's and Kara (which was farm status only a couple months prior), and I didn't want to take the GM's crap. So I /gquit and /logged.
Couple days later, he came at me, so I told him off and hadn't heard from since. I do hear the guild has recently imploded though.
Much happier with my current home, it's not perfect but at least the leadership tries.
And as regards the "it's just a video game" debate. Well... it is. As cold as it may sound, I don't play WoW to make friends, I have plenty already. I try to be respectful to those I get to know, but when it comes down to it I'm just playing a video game.
Lesson? Don't get too attached to anonymous players. They come and they go, and there's nothing to be done about it. If you make some friends, enjoy it while it lasts.
Mar 24th 2008 2:34PM Oops, ^----- that wasn't supposed to be a reply. Chalk another one up for the noob.
Mar 24th 2008 2:32PM Eh, I think I'm pretty fair. If I need it, then I roll need. I'll link my previous gear too, and I don't confuse need with want (I'll pass a minor upgrade if someone else could use it better).
If that means I need half the drops, then I need them. If I don't need anything, I pass (or D/E for the group, or greed to D/E for myself).
Haven't run into any problems yet. Figure if I do, I can safely ridicule them as well for being greedy/foolish.
Mar 15th 2008 7:31PM The primary folly with how Shadow Priests have been handled is that they were a PvP dominant spec for a very long time, and now they are generally gimp in PvP.
Now personally, I'm rather happy with my raiding Mana-Battery and do not PvP with him at all (rolled a warrior for that jazz, been good fun thusfar), but I do think it was somewhat unwise to take what was universally considered a PvP spec and cause it to do a 180 in focus to PvE.
