Feb 9th 2010 6:24PM Ya with no one actually having seen Russell play or having any idea why he deserves to be there... you may want to adjust your odds for him, significantly. I'm already looking forward to the web of lies he weaves as inevitably people ask him why he got on this All-star cast and what he did to be considered a Villain. ;)
Jan 15th 2010 11:21AM The weapon has about a 50% proc uptime making it unreliable. It offers only Stamina whereas heroic weapons offer the same level or more Stamina with Avoidance and/or Threat stats. Most importantly, it's slow which makes it a horrible weapon threat/damage since Warrior threat/damage is based heavily upon Heroic Strike usage.
So you can use a Peacekeeper Blade and have better survival with similar if not better damage/threat or you can use "The Claw" and just have straight up better survival and threat/damage.
So probably I should have analyzed it further, but felt it better to keep new and experienced readers focused on what works.
Mar 4th 2009 11:37AM Well, I have to admit that a quick search makes me eat my own words. You have mentioned Tankspot in the past a few times. I just don't think you guys get sometimes how much you frustrate people with unintentional (and what can sometimes be perceived as intentional) carelessness. Basically, we want this site to be so much more than it is because it has such a large audience and does impact the greater WoW community.
So, you can see it is people insulting you or you can see it as people holding you accountable to your audience.
Mar 4th 2009 11:15AM Insults, derision and elitist attitudes?
They asked for you to give credit where credit was due and to be fair, you still haven't linked to the original source. I understand that you don't want to be bullied into how to format/run your site, but when this kind of thing isn't uncommon... what do you expect?
People are passionate about a site that's been extremely helpful to them. Frankly, I'm still shocked that you've never even mentioned the massive list of instructional videos at Project: Marmot.
After all, in general, it's surprising how you can feature so many blogs and sites that are relatively new to the overall WoW community, yet this is the most you've ever even mentioned of the most massive tanking forum on the internet.
Feb 11th 2009 5:19PM Out of curiosity, what other tank sites do you read?
Dec 19th 2008 6:58PM I don't understand what you mean by a tank that goes of his way to stack Defense and ends up at 536 Defense for Heroics. That's exactly what a tank should be doing. Being under 535 Defense for heroics makes you crittable and is simply the worst gearing decision an early tank can make.
As to the benefits of Defense beyond 540, you may want to consider reading:
Sep 10th 2008 11:08AM So what now Mr. Rossi?
Ready to stop with the negativity already?
It's far past time you stopped poisoning the Warrior Tanking community and admitted that Warrior Tanking is and always has been amazing and will continue to be amazing.
It's disheartening that every time I come to this site, I immediately have a full rage bar.
Sep 10th 2008 10:54AM How you cannot see that Warriors got amazing buffs is frankly staggering.
- Damaging Shield
- TC with Glyph = 8 Targets
We are going to be amazing threat generating machines. We are going to AOE tank as good as and possibly even better than Paladins and why you're running a campaign stating otherwise simply blows my mind.
