There are A LOT of 'third world countries' that have perfectly fine medical systems. Terms like that are obsolete. I think you meant something like developing countries, but even that falls short on a lot of different places. I'm all about second world countries. viva communism!"
You only proved my point. 'A lot' is not all. There are still plenty of them that have little to no economy. Trust me on that one, I've met and talked with prostitutes from different parts of the world that show up in major places like Dubai or Manama that become prostitutes just to provide for their families in countries like Uzbekistan and Ethiopia.
Aug 21st 2008 9:26PM I'm probably going to get flamed for this...but it's really ironic how people are praying and tearing up for a kid that's obviously getting medical treatment, on top of the fact that it's probably a terminal condition anyway.
But nobody says a word about people that could be saved in third world countries that would be perfectly healthy if they only had some food and shelter.
Back on topic though:
Keep fighting little dude. Everyone deserves an equal shot at life.
Aug 19th 2008 9:17AM This is a cool article and it gives me some insight as to how other humans think and act. I'm writing a story right now about my human paladin and his adventures, and while I've done my research to make sure I'm not conflicting with Warcraft lore in terms of what he's doing...I've never taken the time to analyze other characters around him. Most of them are humans, so this will be a great tool for me to push character development.
Aug 17th 2008 3:39PM Zach, thanks for the article, you remembered! :)
Though it sounds like you've been playing in a solo or PvE environment. As nice as 30 yard judgements sound, I think it'd be more plausible (for PvP and as PvE DPS) to go 40/0/31 to pick up Vengeance and finally get Repetence. I know the cap is 77 at the moment so it's hard to address that spec at current, but when the cap increases and PvP becomes a little bigger on the beta, can you do a Shockadin follow up article?
On paper everything sounds fantastic, minus the loss of Sanctity Aura...and I guess I just want to know if my spec is really still going to be worth playing when Wrath hits, or if I should go Retribution instead.
Aug 10th 2008 4:22AM Oh, there's also a nice little addon I use called "G15", it just basically gives you more action bars that you can set up to look just like your 18 macro buttons. It can be used by non Logitech keyboard users too, if they just need more places to put skills, macros, trade skills, etc.
Aug 10th 2008 4:16AM I love my G15. Coupled with Razer's Copperhead mouse, it's the best gaming set up I could ask for at the moment.
Aug 9th 2008 11:23PM Now that they're giving spell damage back to ret paladins, you can expect them to eat more faces off. Their hard melee attributes will make them rip through clothies quickly, and the unmitigated spell damage will tear other pallies, warriors and DK's apart from the inside out.
Aug 8th 2008 4:38AM Nice article boss man. I definitely want to try out a DK just to see the story played out.
Now on to paladin Beta testing! I know you're a ret Zach, but do me a favor pretty please and try out some of the popular Shockadin builds if/when you find some "spellpower" gear. I like the way Shockadin is going, but there's been no word on whether the new spellpower stat actually works in their favor.
Aug 8th 2008 4:05AM Good thing I made a pally first. I'll use him to power level all of my other characters on a different account. Mwhahaha.
Jul 23rd 2008 1:40AM So that's the guy that writes about pallies. Didn't know he was a Hordeadin, but that's cool. Us pallies need to stick together regardless.
I just wish I'd see more theorycrafting for Shockadins, especially with Wrath coming up soon and melee/spell crit and haste being combined.
