Dragon Soul: Siege of Wyrmrest raid bosses explained in 5 seconds {WoW}

Nov 30th 2011 4:58PM "Once per boss, per week" sounds like *I* get to choose which one time I get to roll, which is false. "Roll on loot the FIRST time you kill a boss per week" is so much less confusing.

Patch 4.3 PTR: Darkmoon Faire video tour {WoW}

Nov 6th 2011 5:28PM My old DMC tickets turned into Tattered DMC tickets... bu they stayed WHITE instead of turning grey... anyone find a use for them yet?

Patch 4.3 PTR: Darkmoon Faire video tour {WoW}

Nov 6th 2011 4:40PM I'm on the PTR, standing in the exact same spot shown in the video, and no Asric or Jadaar...

Maybe they are on a timer or there's an event planned, but right now they are still MIA.

No tanking legendary? Have you never heard of Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker?

Yes, different people like different stuff, but the different stuff I like is objectively better than the different stuff other people like.

Jul 21st 2011 11:29AM Horde vs. Alliance is also, in many ways, drawn from our very old cultural memories of Sparta vs. Athens in the Pelopennesian War -- two flawed adversaries (one based on honor that is based on caste and oppression vs. an 'enlightened' empire that wants to 'improve' and 'civilize' its backwards neighbors) that fight each other to a tragic end when they should unite against common enemies.

Encrypted Text: How to run the Molten Front {WoW}

Jul 20th 2011 8:29PM Two bits of additional info:

First, there are several spots -- right at the edge of the top quest hub -- where you can take one step forward and be in PvP territory and take one step back and be in the sanctuary. Ranged will sit up there waiting for the opportunity to snipe at you. Be aware. And if you ARE ranged feel free to sit up there and snipe away to help out your front line melee troops.

I mean, why ELSE would Blizzard put new tameable spiders in the Molten Front if they didn't mean for hunters to web fleeing prey for our rogue buddies?

Second, the most dangerous places are actually the safest place to actually do your dailies. By that I mean the gankers seem to stay close to the safe sanctuary areas, to either finish off the weak or run away themselves if they bite off more than they can chew. So if you want to be mostly undisturbed move farther out. The farther out you go the more likely you'll be around people who only want to get their dailies finished ASAP, just like you.

Jul 20th 2011 7:24PM That's weird... to me, this article is a love letter to the EXACT reason why I love PvP servers and why I have rogues of both factions on mine.

Jul 17th 2011 12:36PM Learning to PvP you (1) have to grow a thick skin, and (2) have to learn to accept failure.

Long-time WoW players have conditioned their bodies to release large amounts of adrenaline and testosterone into their bodies as soon as the BG countdown hits zero and the gates open. If they can't abuse the Alliance (or Horde) they WILL abuse their teammates -- don't take it personally, it's just all the hormones raging through their body.

And don't worry about failing. You have to lose Arathi Basin because of stupidity before you can understand why flags are so important. It takes a lot of losses in Warsong Gulch before you realize how easy it is for dashing/darkflight-ing druids to hide the whole distance between bases. You have to die to a warrior one hundred times (and to a rogue one thousand times) before you figure out how to counter them with your particular class.

It takes a lot of failing to learn how not to fail, so you might as well start getting those failures under your belt starting RIGHT NOW.
