Profanity filters, homophobic slurs, and Blizzard's shaky relationship with the LGBT community {WoW}

Jan 25th 2012 9:28AM Mr. Van Allen thank you for such a poignant article. Well written and excellent points. It is very interesting that common words in "gaming culture" tend to be such offensive terms: "raped", "fag" (as you outlined), "retard", etc. Hopefully with all of this filter business Blizzard will take some time to review their language policies.

Lichborne: The top death knight DPS gear of patch 4.3 {WoW}

Jan 17th 2012 2:38PM Thank you for this post. I had wondered why I was performing so much better as unholy instead of 2 handed frost while using Gurthalak. Had no idea the shadow damage benefited from mastery. That also explains why when I was playing around auto attacking the dummy 32% of my damage was from tentacles mind sear. I must say I enjoy the Unholy rotation a bit more than "light up, push button" frost.

How could tanking design be changed? {WoW}

Jan 11th 2012 5:31PM I've been saying it since wrath and it's two fold:

2 handed tanking weapons. Polearms and 2Handed maces are both useable by Druids and DK's and with the addition of the monk there will be 3 classes tanking with 2 handers. SO let's get some Dodge on some 2Handed weapons. I understand that there is the Agi Str issue for AP prime stat but I'm sure that Blizz can develop a solution. Maybe just have the weapon have straight AP like caster weapons have SP.

Furthermore with the introduction of monks let's get tanking leather please. Leather armor that is clearly to be utilized by Monks and bears. +dodge and as Mr. Rossi points out why not some parry. You can parry with claws I say, bosses and beasts do it. With monks coming out standard issue agi leather is going to have Rogues, Bears, Cats, Windwalkers, and Brewmasters all scrambling for it. Why not separate it out a bit. And if you're thinking "Armor specifically designed for only 2 specs that's not fair", *cough* Holy Pallies makes your argument invalid.

Totem Talk: The enhancement shaman of 2011 {WoW}

Jan 9th 2012 9:29AM I just wanted to pop in and say I loved the state of enhancement in ICC. I wasn't in a heavy raiding guild and mostly did 10 man normal/HM with friends and pugged 25 man.

I dominated the meters on both AoE and single target. I stayed substantially ahead of others on AoE trash leading to Marrowgar with Fire Nova spam. I have never felt Enhancement was at a disparaging disadvantage. ToC and ICC are actually when my Shaman almost replaced my main.

I miss haste being a top stat for us back in Wrath but I honestly love playing a class that actually values Mastery. I play other classes and its all about Haste or crit.

I agree that the ramp up for our AoE can be a bit wonky and I get a little stressed hoping to actually be able to fire nova the bloods on Hemorrhage before they are dead. But I think AoE is in a great place right now. Yor black ooze for example puts me a full 1% to 3% ahead of everyone on average.

Crowd control basics by class {WoW}

Jan 5th 2012 9:47AM So, just the other day while tanking End Time I had a resto druid (who was in cloth pvp gear no less) say that it was not his job to CC since he was the healer. We had no other way to CC the Dragonkin in Bronze Dragonshire. Yes this happened. He then told me to just pull, so I did and we died. He then told us all we fail and dropped group.

His replacement was a resto druid who immediately buffed us and hibernated one of the casters, no questions asked. Thank you to people who know the tools in their tool box.

Breakfast Topic: How do you decide which is your main? {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2012 8:19AM My main has and always will be my Balance Druid Shethornclaw. She was maybe my 4th toon ever and I rolled a druid because I saw a wow wiki pick of moonkin form and said: I want to be that. Been balance since Vanilla and even though I have 8 85's every time I try to switch to another character or try to switch to another spec I always come back to her and blowing stuff up. My enhancement Shaman is a close second.

I am Sheth a Balance Druid.

Around Azeroth: Punk rock kitty {WoW}

Dec 13th 2011 10:37AM Heh, my female gnome always end's up as a Male night elf after the demon form wears off. Really funny gender bending glitch.

Shifting Perspectives: Symbiosis speculation {WoW}
