Arcane Brilliance: These are a few of my favorite things {WoW}

Aug 21st 2010 6:25PM "I strafe around for no good reason, sprinting from side to side and Scorching. Critter crosses my path while I'm running someplace? Scorch. Innkeeper's cat? Scorch. Cockroach? Scorch. Warlock? Living Bomb."

Epic Sentences.

Arcane Brilliance: Mage addons for PvP {WoW}

May 26th 2009 2:02AM Any chance you could post a screen shot of your icehud/mkst addons in use?

Account security is your responsibility, not Blizzard's {WoW}

Feb 27th 2009 6:37PM A point of clarification on the pin. I mean an optional, in-game pin number on your bank. You turn on the option in-game, set the pin in-game, and it can not be changed outside of the game. When you open your bank in-game, you are prompted for your pin which you type in by clicking on a num-pad and not by typing the pin into a text field. If you get hacked, the thieves can get to the stuff in your bags and that is all. Maybe the pin should only be used for withdrawing items from your bank and not when submitting them into the bank. I dunno, I'm no expert on these matters.

Anyways, my point is that Blizzard can and should be doing more to protect our in-game assets. You can't expect your player base to be security experts just like you can't expect them to be computer experts. Shoot, I bet a majority of wow players are still using Internet Explorer on un-patched Windows systems.

Victims of crimes are victims and are not at fault. I pay $15/month x2 for two accounts to Blizzard plus the cost of the software. I expect them to use part of the revenue to increase their security efforts. I do not expect nor appreciate being blamed for being **victimized** by thieves.

Account security is your responsibility, not Blizzard's {WoW}

Feb 27th 2009 4:29PM This is like saying it's your fault someone stole the radio out of the car because you left your door unlocked. It's the fault of the crooks. Period.

Blizzard has far more resources available than the average gamer and they should certainly use those resources to combat the crooks to the best of their ability. How about making the passwords case sensitive? How about requiring confirmation on account changes? How about optional pin numbers or bank (player/guild) windows?

It's totally crazy to tell your player base not to share account information or play from other PC's. We're not in prison. Can you check your bank accounts from other PC's? Is it OK if my wife plays WoW on another PC? Etc. etc. etc.

I did everything I could possibly think of to protect my account and I was still hacked. To this day I have no idea how. I practice "safe browsing" as good as anyone. Blizzard did nothing to help me protect my account. All they did was blame me for the actions of the crooks.

Ghostcrawler: Healing is next for an update {WoW}

Dec 19th 2008 8:23PM To me it's not the healing itself that is boring (other than the staring that unit bars insteaf of watching the fight), it's eveything else about playing a healer that is boring. The leveling up, farming, dailies, everything else. I'd like to see them make everything else in a healer's life more fun. Combat resses, invis, plate armor, solo-style dps, whatever.

Addon Spotlight: Curse Client updater {WoW}

Oct 14th 2008 8:51PM "The solution is simple: Don't want people to use WoWMatrix? Put out a better updater that they'll want to use."

Amen.

Patch 2.4.2 is live {WoW}

May 13th 2008 10:35AM To get to Karazhan and outlands much more quickly.
