The Queue: :eueuQ ehT {WoW}

Oct 28th 2010 11:07AM "People think we're out to get clicks and all that jazz, but really we're just here to create an online daily WoW magazine of news, information and analysis."


I can understand the entire Wowinsider team feels that way, but what about your owners? I'm sure AOL want to keep the hits/ad-revenue streams going strong :)

I know AOL were responsible for taking the wow.com domain away from you lot. I hope their new site idea fails badly, so they can give you the domain name back!

The Queue: You betcha {WoW}

Oct 27th 2010 9:50AM For how much longer can we continue to access Wowinsider using the link at the top of wow.com?

I'm planning to use it for as long as possible, then stop browsing Wowinsider alltogether for ~7days or so once it stops working.

Nothing personal, I'm just trying to make a point to AoL (those twats)
I expect to see their new service collapse and fail within 1-2 years, then you guys can get the wow.com domain name back :DDD

Lichborne: Blood tanking basics {WoW}

Apr 1st 2010 4:27AM I've been blood tank spec on my DK alt for the last 6 months or so, and I enjoy it.
But I strongly disapprove of those 2 linked specs. Infact, I disapprove of this whole article - no offense or anything :P



No Improved icy touch? Bad enough that its missing atm, but next patch this will become even more important.
Virulence? The hit cap isn't necessary unless you're really lacking hit/tps. :S
Spell deflection? Absolutely useless, just use AMS instead :(
No hysteria? It's such an amazing raid tool. :(
Sudden doom? Blood's single target threat is perfectly fine without it.
Rune tap? Rune tap is very dodgy... Good for soloing and pug raids when you might have little trust in your healers. But for endgame raiding, rune tap is bad.


There is a lot to be said about Blood that hasn't really been mentioned here.

Particularly these important facts:
- if you're in a 10man raid and you're lacking a full set of melee buffs, your threat will suffer.
- death & decay is AMAZING threat. Does anyone know the maths for single-target tps with DnD? When you have the glyph, talents and T10 2set bonus. (20%+15%+20% dmg)
I suspect that DnD will be the best tps/rune move that we have when you're in a 10man caster raid instead of a melee raid.
- I also disagree when people say that blood's AoE threat is weak. It is weakER yes, but it's still perfectly viable. All you have to do is focus on near 100% DnD uptime - and you really have to keep an eye on your runes to be able to do that.
With the rest of your runes you need to be keeping your diseases up, and blood boiling whenever possible. Use death strikes to generate death runes to make a streak of ~6 blood boils -> awesome aoe threat


Here is the spec that I use, it hasn't changed for months.

The Queue: Ghostcrawler promised me a Sea Mouse {WoW}

Mar 10th 2010 12:04PM Personally, I HATE when a link opens in a new window/tab automatically - if I wanted that to happen I would have middle-clicked the link instead! What is hard about that? :(

Seriously though, if a link opened in a new window automatically, and I don't want that to happen, what are my options?
Right click -> copy Link location -> paste into address bar
Great. Nice ease-of-use there.

Marketers and advertisers can fuck off and die thx :)

15 Minutes of Fame: The solo artist {WoW}

Feb 10th 2010 11:39AM His spec makes NO sense to me.

1/3 vendetta, when you could drop that and take something like bone shield? :(

Can anyone explain that?

Lichborne: Blood, blood! {WoW}

Nov 4th 2009 4:09AM This is a blog, if you want guides, look back at the previous posts in the DK section, it's all been done before. Or, heaven forbid, look at another website that specialises in DK guides.

Rossi says himself that this article is just to cover another writer, but didn't they even consider just skipping the article for a week? This is just filler, which really isn't necessary.

Lichborne: Blood, blood! {WoW}

Nov 3rd 2009 4:26AM What was this article about?

You read the descriptions of talents in a typical blood spec, re-worded them, and stuck them together in this article?

This is getting really irritating to me.
If you dont' have anything to write about, PLEASE DON'T WRITE ANYTHING.
Padded-out nonsense articles are more detrimental to wow.com than anything else.

What we know and don't know about the dungeon after Ulduar {WoW}

Apr 8th 2009 10:57AM ah ofc!

That Vykrul fortress in the north west of Icecrown, Balargarde fortress, looks very likely to be a future raid or instance.

WoW Patch 3.1 PTR Druid glyphs and undocumented changes, part 2 {WoW}

Feb 26th 2009 5:48AM "The spirit nerf is going to be a druid/priest killer."

Never heard so much BS. From you and everyone else.

Healing is FAR TOO EASY, it has been since the beginning of WOTLK.
Going OOM is impossible unless you throw away all intelligent thought and just spam away.
Spirit is very overpowered, I can regen an entire mana-bar almost by going AFK for ~20-30seconds. I never have to drink in heroics, or when grinding, or anywhere at all!

I'm very much looking forward to being challenged as a healer - for the first time ever. (I was feral/balance in TBC)
