Patch 3.0.2 primer for Holy Paladins con't {WoW}

Oct 17th 2008 10:19AM And just so you are aware, most raiding shamans are going to skip the new bottom tree talents all togethor. In a raid, the vast majority of the time we will still be casting CH, so most raiding shamans dont really see most of the new talents as being worth the points you spend in them. There are some very nice healing related talents at the top of the enhancement tree, just like there are talents in the ret tree for holly pallies. But at the bottom of the sham tree, there are 3 or 4 talents that are being ignored for raiding.

BlizzCon 2008: WoW Raids and Dungeons Panel {WoW}

Oct 13th 2008 10:02AM I agree Jarnis.

But your preaching to the wrong crowd, a lot good and friendly people hang out on this blog, but most that post are very casual, despite the fact that quite a number of people agree with you that the difficulty level inherint in the game seems to have dropped and that we need another SWP eventually, you will not find those people here.

Suggesting this type of thing will only draw anger, at least here on wowinsider, this is a good blog to find news, but most of the people that post here (not all) hate it when someone speaks of making things semi difficult, or adding content on a steep progression path. Just not realy a good forum for a topic such as this.

Here there be lovers of the easy mode. Yar..


Tips for taking down Coren Direbrew {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2008 12:48PM Wow, seriously, just single point Coren and ignore the adds entirely.

Officers' Quarters: Tanks for nothing {WoW}

Sep 16th 2008 9:54AM So buried further back in the comments a guy claims that this kind of attitude is what makes raiding feel like work, and how we are all d-bags for caring about the performance of a raider instead of just having fun.

Here is what i said to him about this topic.

""
Not to seem like a d-bag, but it sounds like you might have been "that guy" once (maybe you still are, maybe not).

So let me explain why people care about performance.
Would you like to spend HOURS (literally) trying to have fun and kill boss's, only to have one member of a raid ruin it for the rest of the players?

Now (for my case) extend that effort out over the course of 2 years, and extend the size to 25 mans, and think about black temple. Where one freaking guy who cant get his head around the game makes 24 other people spend gold on repairs.
Gold they WOULDNT have to go farm where it not for "that guy".

Its not about being mean or Judgemental, its about not wanting to have "that guy" in the raid and have him ruini the fun for everyone else in the raid/guild.

My guild (the one i run), has a casual side to it.
If you ARE "that guy" but you are still a very nice person, you can be on the casual side, and once content is on farm we will drag you through it.
You will get to hang around and raid occasionally, we are not going to expunge you from the guild.

But we are NOT going to punish the dedicated skilled high attendance people just to see if "that guy" will learn this run, or this run, or this run. etc....

A new round of free character transfers announced {WoW}

Sep 4th 2008 9:43AM Yep, muradin is a good spot.
Try and ignore the forums though, i honestly believe the entire population of WoW forum trolls are born there.
We will greatly welcome the influx of new blood.

There are several T6 and T5 guilds looking for raiders to fill slots left open by kids heading back to school.

Not to metion replacing people that wont log out of the beta to eat, let alone bother with BT.

Paladin changes in Beta build 8885 {WoW}

Sep 2nd 2008 10:52AM should i mention my wife's paladin criting for 11k?
Or one of our guilds priests critting for a hair under 13k?

Guildwatch: Unknown withdrew... any chance of joining another guild {WoW}

Aug 27th 2008 9:05AM I run a guild on Muradin called Carpe Diem.

I feel for the guys in Illuminaughty.

But to clarify, they are second on the horde side, and 9th overall on the server.

That being said, considering the exreme alliance slant to the pop count on our server, and the rate at which they have been knocking boss's down. They are doing damn well.

Anyone find out where the douche that jacked you xfrd to?
