The Queue: Steam tip {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2010 1:24PM "Something needs to be done to make pugging heroics more accessible"

Please, no. No no no no no. I'm not sure that there's enough of a distinction that can be made between "easier to do in pugs" without slipping into "will be brain-dead easy to AOE spam everything in three months." Keep heroics challenging to keep them interesting longer into the expansion. We don't want a repeat of Wrath here.

Besides that, I think it's perfectly fine that you can't expect enter a heroic with four other random yokels in greens who don't bother to CC and still clear the place. Nothing in the current heroics is unreasonable or unfair -- you just can't play like a typical heroic zerg group.

Reader UI of the Week: Almagest's UI {WoW}

Dec 21st 2010 6:33PM Hi, this is my UI, so I thought I'd chime in here.

Mainly because it's a lot of extra work to not only maintain the whitelist for the highlighted buffs area, but also maintain a _blacklist_ of those same buffs for the regular buff display. Though if there's an easy way to do that in Satrina, please tell me, because I'm going to be all over it.

I hope it's not considered link whoring (feel free to edit it out of my post if so), but I originally wrote up a blog post explaining some more of the thought that went behind some of my choices, over here:

The Queue: Monster {WoW}

Dec 20th 2010 11:41AM Tanks are rare in the LFD queue because there is no way in hell most of us are going to pug Cataclysm heroics with the types of moronic Wrath "gogogogo" DPS that we expect fully populate the queue.

Breakfast Topic: Is your race or faction choice based on sticking with friends? {WoW}

Dec 17th 2010 10:32AM Yes. I've played equal time on both factions, but I've come to the conclusion in the end that I much prefer Alliance, in terms of aesthetics, cities, zones, lore, etc. I'm still playing Horde because I don't want to leave my friends, though.
