Leeroy Jenkins appears on The Daily Show {WoW}

Raid Rx: Start ranking on healing without even trying {WoW}

Jan 17th 2012 1:58PM Matthew isn't wrong, though. We've got this really mouthy druid in our guild that loves to harp on healing meters; about her uptime, her healing, rankings and all. But she's on raid healing, and those of us doing solo target tank healing can't match those numbers even if we could afford to throw away the mana we'd need to do so. She's even gone so far as to cast aspersions on my healing during Phase 1 of Deathwing - you know, the phase when most of the incoming damage is easily healing and raidwide anyway (I say most because those tentacles are still a bitch if people are grouped).

Yeah, if it's all in good fun, it's no problem. But it's beyond that. It's starting to be considered the basis for recognition in the raid. Honestly, it's really starting to piss me off. Forget the meters. Just do your job and be satisfied with that.

Jan 12th 2012 2:31PM "With pandarens, it makes sense that they could belong to either the Horde or Alliance and that each faction would accept them."

Makes sense? I'm sorry, I'm not following you there. Consider BC: the draenei knew the orcs from Draenor, and Thrall would undoubtedly would have wanted to extend a hand of support and apology for all they'd been through. What's more, the blood elves (back when they were the high elves) had already cooperated with humans through the previous wars, and could have easily been convinced to work with them again. Old bad blood can be worked through - if the forsaken don't teach us that, then we know nothing.

Toss in that draenei became shamans (which the horde already had) and blood elves became paladins (which the alliance already had), and we could easily have seen the factions being reversed, just because previous associations "made sense".

Besides, Goblins have been playing a neutral faction since Vanilla WoW. If anything, it would have made more sense for THEM to be played by either Alliance or Horde (and don't say that it's because of their disdain for gnomes - EVERYONE has disdain for gnomes).

5 ways to keep your healer happy in 5-man heroics {WoW}

Jan 11th 2012 12:22AM "Your armor is basically very pretty origami."

*blink* Ooh, I like the way you think. And the way you cater to us healers. Well said across the board.

Can't tell you how many people (even tanks!) I've had to Leap of Faith out of Benedictus' waves....*grumble*

Raid Rx: Why healing rotations spell death for your raid {WoW}

Jan 7th 2012 12:23AM The closest thing I have to a healing rotation is what I hit tanks with just before combat starts.

Pop a shield on him. The shield increases my haste for a bit, so I put Prayer of Mending on him and a Renew just before he engages - and use the last of my haste on a Greater Heal as he enters combat, hoping to proc a nice Divine Aegis.

But as soon as we enter combat, all plans are out the window.

The Queue: My power, my pleasure, my pain {WoW}

Dec 11th 2011 11:24PM Q4tQ:

Speaking from a RP standpoint, I can understand why the Darkmoon Faire would only crop up at certain times in certain places. After all, it takes time to travel across this big world of ours. Going from Elwynn to Mulgore to Shattrath and back....it takes alot of time.

BUT.

Now they have their own island. Their own permanent base. Now WE go to THEM. ...so what's with the periodic closing?

Aiding the Alliance: The idle Varian Wrynn {WoW}

Dec 8th 2011 7:56PM "The Alliance faction leaders are simply ... boring. They don't do anything."

You know what? Fine.
I'm OK with them being boring.

BECAUSE NONE OF THE ALLIANCE LEADERS ARE TRYING TO KILL OTHER MEMBERS OF THE ALLIANCE.

(I'm looking at you, Sylvannas)

The Queue: I will not {WoW}

Dec 4th 2011 12:29AM Ultraxion: "I am the beginning of the end! The shadow which bolts out the sun! The bell which tolls your doom."

Am I the only one that was thinking, "I am the terror that flaps in the night" as he was doing that little monologue?

Nov 15th 2011 5:56PM Funny. That link for "Blind" wasn't the one that I thought it would be. :)

The Queue: Happy Halloween -- have an utterly terrifying video {WoW}

Oct 31st 2011 11:50PM From Dwarflore #1 (http://wow.joystiq.com/2010/05/29/know-your-lore-current-alliance-politics-the-dwarves-part-o/): "The earthen were very, very attached to the earth, and as a result when the Sundering occurred, they could feel the pain of that earth being shattered. Because of this, they retreated to their places of origin -- Uldum, Uldaman, Ulduar -- and simply went into hibernation for almost eight thousand years."

How're they handling the Cataclysm? It might not be the splitting of the world into two continents, but the World Pillar's been broken and all the elementals are REALLY ticked off.
