Mar 29th 2012 12:23PM I did that. In Tol Barad. To a retreating enemy druid.
And I'm a hunter. The sight of a flaming kitty chasing another flaming kitting spitting arrows raised so many questions in the raid channel.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Potions of Illusion are the best thing ever. I hope this article encourages more of them to appear on the market.
Mar 8th 2012 2:27PM Yeah, but we WILL STILL NOT BE ROLLING ON MELEE WEAPONS. Any Hunter that does, feel free to kick him out of the group. We NEED ranged weapons to be effective, unless MoP suddenly pulls a full melee build out of it's ass and I can't see that happening.
Mar 8th 2012 8:57AM I agree with you. Wholly, fully, and without question. An in-game April Fool's would be pretty much the best thing ever and I sincerely hope that it will happen. Guild Wars has a long-standing tradition of in-game tomfoolery (I remember one year every single player character model was replaced with a stick figure. Awesome times), so I don't see why Blizzard shouldn't do something for us.
However, the problem lies not with Blizzard's imagination, but with the community; or at least the more vocal idiots within the community. Remember that the website April Fool's tend to get no small amount of whining on the forums from mouthbreathers that have nothing better to do than complain that Blizz are wasting their time with jokes when they should be doing proper work, or the gullible few that do actually believe in the joke. Plus, it doesn't help that some of the April Fool's would have actually been pretty good if they'd been implemented (I'm still holding out for Pimp My Mount and Dance Battles in my heart).
And of course given Blizzard's patch process the joke would be datamined out of the game well before the date, spoiling the surprise.
I want it to happen, and I wish I wasn't so negative about it; but the only way it would happen is if after the event the account assets of all the funsuckers gets liquidated and distributed among the players that can actually take a joke.
Mar 3rd 2012 2:28PM I thought it was pretty much the same thing.
Mar 3rd 2012 2:20PM Glyph of Feign Death is useful anywhere, Glyph of Revive Pet is also always useful (And this is coming from a hunter whose main pet has Heart of the Phoenix), and Glyph of Scare Beast is an absolute JOY to use in PvP against druids.
Really, hunters have some of the most useful utility minor glyphs.
Mar 3rd 2012 2:17PM Well, at least you can see the polearm on a hunter. The only time I've seen a druid with Kiril is when the bearcow is completely obscuring the raid stack on Ultraxion. I will actually miss the sight of a polearm or staff strapped to my back when MoP rolls around, even if they do allow ranged weapons to be visible.
And yes, my Kiril is mogged to a Hellreaver right now. Matches well with the Black Earthfury set I farmed.
Mar 2nd 2012 11:42AM Blood Elves, Killik. Say what you will about them, but their understanding of good posture eclipses that of the Alliance.
Mar 2nd 2012 11:41AM @Imnick:
There's a couple of problems with "For Lordaeron!"
The first is that, given that the true citizens of Lordaeron are currently in the Horde, you're basically issuing a warcry FOR YOUR OWN ENEMY.
The second is that the Gilneans apparently loved the old Lordaeron Alliance so much that they abandoned it in the middle of a major war, hid behind their wall cowering, and just sat and watched while the Scourge wiped out the entire country without doing a thing to help.
The Lordaeron Alliance is dead; its members are either wholly in the Horde now (Lordaeron, Quel'Thalas), ineffective on a military scale (Stromgarde, Kul Tiras), neutral (Dalaran. Also now on a completely different continent.) or treasonous quislings or cowards that abandoned the Alliance in its hour of need (Alterac, Gilneas).
Mar 1st 2012 4:51PM I'm just picking up on WA now myself (Since it seems to be a good solution to a question I asked in last week's column), and I've stumbled across a guy on YouTube with several video tutorials for WA.
Will probably chew through all of these myself when I've got the time, but right now the ICD/proc tutorial is just what I'm looking for.
