The Light and How to Swing It: Tanking Blackwing Descent for paladins, part 1 {WoW}

Apr 29th 2011 8:50PM On the Defense System, I one tanked it on my pally. The only problem you will have is the interrupt and aggro initially. After all four adds are up, then aggro is not an issue. Seems to work well for my group.

Breakfast Topic: Has Cataclysm been a game-changer for you? {WoW}

Apr 10th 2011 10:14AM I think cata was too hard for it's own good. I wish they would go back to the way of LK. Raids were accessible. I run a guild of friends that are not the best players, but they are a fans of the game. I am their tank and raid leader (do more facilitating now, I was getting burned out). I play in a raiding guild with my spriest alt, so I understand the content and I am not whining that things are too hard, because I cannot do it. I think again, this what I think, heroic raid modes are for the hardcore players and that the normal modes should be challenging, but more accessible to the true casual players. Ok, I will put away my soap box now.
As far as cata on a personal level, I am still getting use to it. I gear up all my toons super fast (some for personal goals and others to help my guild do heroics), but the content other than Uldum is not very compelling to me. With LK (started late in BC and only raided Kara) I think the story held me through the full leveling process. I will see what patch 4.1 brings. I will hopefully get my band of misfits rolling smoothly. Please keep the flaming to a minimum, as this is just how I feel and I am not here to berate anyone for their skills or lack of skills.

Patch 3.2 PTR: Priest changes in build 10072 {WoW}

Jul 8th 2009 1:10PM Since DP will can only be applied to one mob at a time, does it drop off the first mob, if a DK spread disease? (Yes, I was under the impression that DP spread with the other DK desease as well, once the DK use that particular spell). Please correct me if I am wrong.

A look at the stated Priest changes for patch 3.1 {WoW}

Feb 5th 2009 1:49PM I play a shadow priest and this is str8 up BS. There is no way those changes and the changes in the last patch are anything good. BTW: Don't give me that crap about rolling a lock...they have the shadow spec in the game and I choose to play that, so like every other class respect my right to bitch about making my class/spec better.
Anyway, Blizzard why don't you try working on giving us back decent health and mana when we apply VT and VE. Let everything depend on Mind Flay, so we can get a decent tick of mana back instead of hoping for some mana back by casting mind blast.
I have been hoping for a change to the shadow tree forever and we are still getting the shaft.
Ok, I have vented.
Note: the above is solely my opinion and if you don't like it...then tough, so save the flaming.

The Queue: Who cares about 3.0.8, where's 3.1? {WoW}

Jan 21st 2009 3:27PM Ok, why is my titan mace missing 30+ sp? I paid someone 1499G based on the spec of 490 sp and now Blizzard knock it down to 457 or something like that. I don't get can they do that after the item has been crafted?

I am sorry, I am just pissed off at the moment.

Countdown to Wrath Giveaway: Day 0 - BlizzCon loot bag with Polar Bear Mount {WoW}

Good luck everyone

Breakfast Topic: To bug or not to bug {WoW}

Nov 12th 2008 9:28AM I took the gear, because I was told by a guildie that it was free for the transition. I got my low lvl lock the gear and my priest. I looked it over and my blessed gears were better, so only my lock has a full set. Actually, if Blizzard ban me from the game...then I can finally be free and that might not be a bad thing. It has been boring leading up to WOTLK.

World of Warcraft 3.0.3 Patch notes {WoW}

Nov 5th 2008 1:46PM "Professions
The level requirements required to train gathering skills have been removed."

So, I can just swing my pick and start mining in oldland? I have no idea what Blizz is getting at with this change. Can I get a clarification?
Thx you

Breakfast Topic: Beta grief {WoW}

Sep 25th 2008 9:02AM Ok, so I am not the only one that found the beta experience to be a let down. Don't get me wrong, I love that I got the chance to see my spriest potential in the upcoming expansion, but people were not nice. They stole kills and was just down right rude. The technical issues, I didn't have a problem with, because it's a beta and I was ready for all kind of bugs and Blizzard did not disappoint. Overall, I have to say that I like what I have seen of the expansion and I will get it. I am happy that I got to experience it.

Sep 19th 2008 3:52PM Thank you for the information. I will see if I can find something that's similar on the PC.
