UPDATE: Fields of Honor Loot Card EU giveaway {WoW}

Jul 1st 2009 6:14AM I've been eating KFC for years in preparation for this moment... Mount please! ^^

The long wait for a Green Proto-drake {WoW}

Jun 19th 2009 5:44PM I was stupidly lucky. I actually have yet to get an aged yolk 10 eggs down the line. Got the Whelp first, then the mount, then the two tickbirds and the cobra. Had extra whelps and birds since then.

Great guild traditions and where they come from {WoW}

Apr 22nd 2009 7:28PM Back in my guild during the Molten Core days we'd all be raiding happily and fairly seriously. Then as we left the corpse of the second salamander boss (Sulfuron?) to head for Garr a random conversation would always start, not even on purpose. This quickly became known as the Random Straits, as we'd have conversations varying from favorite TV programs to how much our main tank sounded like he spoke Clanger fluently.

Ahh, happy days...

World of Warcraft, as seen on television {WoW}

Jan 24th 2009 6:12PM One of the recent episodes of House with a child in it had him playing WoW.

Breakfast Topic: Most embarrassing thing you've ever done in WoW? {WoW}

Jan 11th 2009 8:18AM I was master looter for my guild back in Vanilla and we were running ZG. We killed the bat woman (my mates had a lot of fun in those days trying to kill the trash bats before they blew up) and she dropped the 2h paladin mace. The paladins had their little bid war, I went to give it to the winner and lo and behold I handed it to the rogue by mistake.
I've never gotten over that...

A warrior friend of mine was our main tank at the time and we were clearing the pyramid to the panther aspect. At the top of the stairs to enter there's a group of about 5 panthers on either side, which can be a nuisance on their own as AoE tanking wasn't in its best form. So we used to clear one side then pull the 4 man humanoid group inside the pyramid to the outer platform so we had more room to avoid their abilities. We cleared the right, our tank said "ok pulling to the right" then promptly pulled the humanoid group and ran headlong into the panthers on the left by mistake.
We survived barely, but we still tease him about it when he's using left and right in any tactics.

A plea on behalf of frustrated tanks everywhere {WoW}

Oct 31st 2008 6:24PM Speaking as a fire PvE mage, I confess to the use of Blast Wave. Now, don't get me wrong I know its damn annoying (my alt is a tank druid) but it is needed in a mage's high dps aoe rotation. If there is a group of atleast 6 mobs all at once that cannot be controlled the situation merits the use of AoE abilities usually (depends how elite they are) to remove them quickly. The best rotation for this is an opening Flamestrike, run in and Dragon's Breath, if that procs World in Flames a second instant cast Flamestrike, then the only logical follow up for a fire mage is blast nova. Arcane Explosion isn't as high dps, Blizzard isn't as high dps, everything else is cooling down, so Blast Wave is the logical move.

If you can think up a rotation that does as high dps without the knockback then please tell me, and quote numbers, but unfortunatly Blast Nova is a lot stronger than AE for a fire specced mage trying to AoE.

Enter to celebrate patch 3.0.2 with a Paper Airplane from WoW Insider {WoW}

Oct 14th 2008 12:46PM Run every dungeon with an achievement linked to it that isn't retroactive, followed by attempting to wheedle some friends into any non-retroactive raids (well, ZG and MC only, BWL is a tad hard for only 5 people in Kara and badge gear).
