Gold Capped: TradeSkillMaster advanced guide {WoW}

Mar 22nd 2011 6:10AM Thanks for another great article!
However, I'd really like to be able to shop for all my recipes for all my professions for all my alts from the one character(my AH mule), then send those mats to the alts to craft, then send them back to my AH mule. If that makes sense. Is this possible? Am I missing something? Can I queue up things for my alts from my AH mule?

Totem Talk: Restoration gets buffed edition {WoW}

Feb 28th 2011 10:30PM I'd really like to see a cooldown that cosmetically looks like Chain Heal. My first thought was that of a channelled heal. For example, you press your cooldown button, then you can actually choose which healing spell you'd like to use, and it shoots out like a laser and has different colours depending on which spell you chose. I dunno, I really like chain heal. :P

That scary GearScore/Real ID screenshot is fake, guys {WoW}

Jul 8th 2010 9:59PM Another fantastic response with maturity. Another fantastic representation of a wow.com fan boy.

Jul 8th 2010 9:40PM Wow, that's mature, thanks for summing up the wow.com community for everyone.

Jul 8th 2010 9:34PM WoW.com - you're pro-RealID and pro-Gearscore? This screenie could have taken down gearscore & realID at the same time, seems to me you're supporting both...

Cataclysm Talent Preview: Holy priests {WoW}

Jun 14th 2010 10:33PM Stupid wow.com comment reply system...

The fact that you say I keep "bringing up" the ToC ability as a 'suggestion' shows me that you did not even read my response, I merely mentioned it as something different and better, not the solution. "What constructive good is it for me to just cry" is basically a fancy way of saying "why should I QQ like you". This is a very immature response and I would expect more from a professional and you need to be more calm when writing.

Priests will not be suddenly all armed with Lightwell, they are being forced to take it for another strong talent point. My point with the elite is not a poor one as you state, for they will and have tried every talent and spec in most situations and know that Lightwell has limited use and talents are better spent elsewhere.

Another reason I can see you're not taking this seriously is that you reference the official forums! I mean, if I wanted to be trolled and given terrible advice I would go there, but never would the official forums be more than a grain of salt to me.

The simple fact remains, Lightwell is still unchanged, has not even been touched, and every priest is basically being forced to spend a talent point on it, which goes against blizzard's cata-talent-point-ethos. By all means, keep Lightwell in the talent tree, just don't force us to take it.

Jun 14th 2010 10:30AM Let me be clear, I use Lightwell. Yes, I do, I use it for myself. Only myself. I place it where I plan to be spending most of my time, or near where I'm going to be running. It means I'm able to set it up before the fight starts, so it's off cooldown early and I can use it again. It heals about 5k per tick, and means I can have myself topped up while whack-a-moling the raid, but I still think it could be better/changed.

ToC implementation was just an example of what could be done with the ability Lightwell, an example that it could be better, not that blizzard should make it that way exactly.

How many people have to NOT take Lightwell for it to become a "boring talent that no one likes?" Why is it that the elite of the elite never take Lightwell? Sure, it looks cool, it could have been a good idea with different combat mechanics that didn't require rotations, but in the end, it just doesn't work. Compare Lightwell with other tier 7 healing spells: Swiftmend, Mana Tide Totem, Holy Shock, even Power Infusion. Let's make Mana Tide Totem an on-click mana return... How many other spells do you need to raid warning or whisper your raid members "Oh, if you want mana click on this totem here"...

How many other spells in the entire game can you mention that involve player interaction such as this? A spell that for other players (those that must right-click) cannot be key-bound. Even other spells that require clicking on other players, e.g Tricks of the Trade, Misdirection, Intervene, can all be key-bound and clicked without switching targets, limiting down-time between their rotations and what-not.

Your dedication to writing this article is absolutely linked to your opinion on Lightwell, but not just Lightwell, all spells, broken or otherwise. You are entitled to your opinion of course, but I would think that writing for a website such as wow.com, the writer would have the player's best interests at heart. I do not believe this is the case as I believe player's best interests involves at least an attempt at changing Lightwell, instead of forcing all Holy Priests to take it. The comments towards the original article and the voting towards said comments are a testament to that.

Jun 11th 2010 1:01AM Re Lightwell: "What it needs are smart and creative players who will find brilliant uses for it." - It also requirs smart players to stop their dps rotations, or tanking cooldowns to switch to the lightwell with a right-click, and then back again. If you haven't noticed WoW isn't exactly the place to look for smart players.

They've already fixed Lightwell in the 5-man Trial of the Champion on the second boss's adds. A lightwell is summoned and spouts light out of it, damaging us. Why can't they adjust this ability to spout light out at us healing us at the same time?

Blizzard absolutely knows that everyone HATES this talent. They know that no one takes it, but for some reason they insist on keeping it without change. We can tell that they know, because they have made it a pre-requisite for a must have talent in that of Chakra.

First they talk about taking out all those boring talents that nobody likes, and they talk about taking away having to take those certain talents to get must-haves. I really question how seriously they're taking these talent tree changes and your support for the unchanged Lightwell makes me question how seriously you took writing this article.
