[Updated] On the second day of giveaways, BioWare gave to me... {Massively}

Dec 14th 2011 12:04PM I will make a jovial and boisterous jedi consular who will be perhaps a bit too fond of good food and drink. He will be easier to befriend and banter with than your average jedi, and also more likely to be dismissed as unimportant. Some members of the jedi council may consider him unreliable and unworthy of jedi status, however his apparent weaknesses will hide a shrewd nature, and he will be an extremely valuable resource on diplomacy/spying missions, where people may be likely to confide in him or speak unwisely in his presence.

Some Assembly Required: SWG housing extravaganza {Massively}

Dec 9th 2011 1:21PM Seems to me like there would be a significant amount of griefing, with people placing their houses in inconvenient places, or not following the city plans. How was this dealt with?

Sounds awesome though. The more I hear about SWG the more I wish I'd played it.

Hope you find a good party!

Breakfast Topic: Tank anxiety {WoW}

Aug 4th 2010 2:08AM Threat plates is amazing. After using it for just a month or so its hard to imagine tanking without it.

Breakfast Topic: Tank anxiety {WoW}

Aug 3rd 2010 3:44PM There are a ton of great suggestions, but I have a couple I'd like to add as well.

First, keep it as simple as possible. There were some suggestions that you should be taking active responsibility for your life by using cooldowns. Don't bother. Its super important later on but at first you need to learn pulls and control threat and thats more than enough to deal with until you feel really comfortable.

Another way to keep thing simple is to tank at lower levels as some have mentioned. 1) you only have a few buttons you can press. 2) you do as much dps as the dps, and your threat modifier almost guarantees aggro on any target that you hit. Run RFC a lot because its simple. (lower level instances are great for practice even as you are more experienced, because they teach you how to manage your rage/mana)

Second, you can practice tanking a lot on your own before you ever enter an instance. Put on your tanking gear, set up your tanking bar, go in defensive stance (bear/frost/righteous fury), pull groups of mobs, and try to get good threat on all of them (watching Omen). You can develop your tanking style and reflexes before you have to do it in a group. Try soloing lower level instances paying attention to mob mechanics and using your abilities to group ranged mobs, etc.

Tanking is the funnest role, imo, once you get past the anxiety stage, so keep at it :)

For Gnomeregan! Team ups {WoW}

Jun 6th 2010 9:18PM This is my first meeting here with you, so I'd like to introduce myself a bit. My name is Naggle. Although I am a Gnome, I have lived in Stormwind all my life as I was taken in by the orphanage in Stormwind at an early age. I honestly know nothing of real Gnomish life.

I have been taking work in Stormwind as a maid for a few years now, but when I heard of the effort to retake Gnomeregan from the Troggs and their evil ruler I was seized by a sudden desire to find my Gnomish roots, and I wanted to join in the liberation of our wondrous city!

I have no talent for magics, or the gnomish arts of enginiferication (I hope i said that right), so I bought a sword and shield with my savings and came to join up!

Since then I've been training, on my own. I have been a bit confused about that actually. I am in communication with some other members of our army, but I haven't actually done anything with them with the exception of one excellent incident where Kipp and Daemonwolf came to help me against some very strong evildoers in Stormwind.

But I am told to, "Go forth, quest, and gain in strength until you are ready to join the stuggle!" So that is what I have been doing. I have travelled in the dwarvish lands, as well as back to the more comfortable areas around stormwind that I am more used to. I have made forays into Gnomeregan itself! (Indeed I thought that the team of adventurers that I had joined had defeated the menace, but later learned that weI had been deceived). And I do feel that I am gaining in strength, although Kipp and Daemonwolf showed me that I have much further to go.

I am still confused however, since I assume when we do storm Gnomeregan it will be as a full army instead of as individuals. Or at least all the stories I have heard have told it so.

Well it is probably my fault. In my work as a maid I did most of the cleaning when everyone was asleep, so I have developed a fondness for training and questing at night.
