The Queue: Why it's not time for a warlock tank {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 1:06PM Agreed Killik, There's no reason why there wouldn't be more new races. I don't think that things like naga or murlocs are in the future, that's true. But as far as I'm concerned, pandaren really weren't on my radar either. I know people had thoughts about it, but I didn't. Maybe they know more about lore than I do, it's likely. But.. there's no reason why they can't come up with another race in another expac

Ah! Didn't know all that :-)

The Queue: Why it's not time for a warlock tank {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 12:52PM @Spelio and those replying -

Of course if they added a mage healing spec, no mage would be *required* to heal, but there would always be that added pressure. I don't know how many raids I was in during Wrath where a tank or heals dropped, or wasn't good enough or whatever, and we needed a replacement. Those whose classes are capable of healing or tanking, I think, are given a scrutinizing look when they don't step up to play that role. And I know when I see someone capable of tanking or healing, and they just don't, it makes me wonder why not. Especially with a pally or druid, like.. your class can heal or tank as well, and you can't help us out by doing either of those?

Fair? Not really. And of course you don't want someone who has no idea what they're doing or doesn't have the gear, or whatever, but I do think that scrutiny is always there.

Apr 3rd 2012 11:18AM I too would love nothing more than to tank on my lock. But, I *am* a dps class and I accept that. I do love those encounters though and I think that design would do well to keep putting interesting encounters like that here and there. I've gotta say a huge part of it is the , "yea, that's right, Mage, I'm more important than you right now, so there!"

I do think it's nice to add things like that spell into our spellbook, it's just fun. However, as much as hybrids have to offer, I don't think there's room for locks, mages, hunters, or rogues to move beyond dps. I don't think the personality of any of those classes lends itself well to being that kind of party member. I am a warlock and shadowy and evil and no I'm not going to heal you! And why should a rogue take damage for you? Rogues are not these selfless help-everyone types. Especially in this day of making more and more classes available for more and more races, I just don't think it's appropriate for everyone to be able to do everything. Like blood elf paladins; should a race that is all but defined by their drug addiction really be representatives of holy light? I'm all for more options in a number of ways, but not everyone should do everything, and that should be ok.

Of monks, mains, and the ability to change {WoW}

Apr 2nd 2012 4:48PM I've been playing for...about 2 1/2 years - with a 6 month break in there. My main is a human affliction warlock. She has been since my first week of wow. I've tried to switch a couple times - I loved my prot pally for quite a while - my first venture into tanking. I played my dk for a month straight as soon as I leveled enough to have one cause it was new and shiny, and then after my guild finished ICC, I was dual-maining with my ele/resto shammy because I felt like I should heal.

I am very put-off by how much work I've put into my warlock. I have around 7500 achievement points, she has 75 mounts and a similar number of pets where my other toons only have the boa mounts and pets (mainly). She does the holidays, she gets geared, she works on rep and does old dungeons. This is mainly what kept me from switching to my shammy full-time. I just couldn't let go of all of that.

I will probably roll a monk panda. I don't see why I wouldn't, but I have 10 toons on my realm, the lowest is level 77. I like to check out all the classes, go heal something, or go tank something... some are better for farming, I level allll their professions. But my lock will likely always be my main. Perhaps if I still raided, I would pick up my shammy for the heals, but I don't, so I don't.

I'd also say that I'm attached to all the work I've done as a whole, with all my toons. At one point, right around the launch of cata, my bf switched realms and factions. I really wanted to go play with him, but I'd put soo much work into all the toons I have now! I couldn't start over!

Breakfast Topic: How would you redesign the old character models? {WoW}

Mar 29th 2012 10:47AM I saw a pair of red pandas at the Bronx Zoo when I was 6.. they aren't new.

Breakfast Topic: How would you redesign the old character models? {WoW}

Mar 29th 2012 10:45AM @ytt "I wouldn't say "fat", but human females are definitely more "curvy" than I'd like, especially my rogue."

I think you're on to something there. I have no problem with the measurements of the humans (or any characters really), but maybe an idea is to have the roles a bit more customized. With their abilities, I think warriors should be kind of huge, or with girls, more muscular. I mean, some of the weapons that belf warriors would carry are cracked out. It's like barbie, I don't think they could physically lift them. Rogues are sneaky and stealthy, so they should be on the smaller side.

Debunking the "WoW is better for online dating than dating sites" story {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2012 6:24PM I love people that try to *interpret* surveys. Seriously. I think it's almost fun to detail all the things that are wrong about the conclusions they come up with.

That being said, WoW is a fine place to meet people - I'd compare it to.. being a jogger who meets someone at a park because you both like jogging and you just click.. or whatever.

I did meet my fiance through WoW and he did move across many states to be with me.

I'm thinking it probably would've ben easier though to sign up for an actual dating site and just list WoW as a hobby.

And a gamer dating another gamer is hardly news. Who else would understand that no you can't come to dinner RIGHT NOW because you're in the middle of a boss fight?

Does a video game have to force us to make good choices? {WoW}

Feb 20th 2012 3:09PM "I don't think we need a video game company to force us to use our innate moral compasses and reward us when we use that moral compass correctly."

But we do.

Take Trade Chat for example - do you really think that half the things that are said there, would be said to someone's face? No. People abuse the anonymity of the internet - everywhere, not just on wow.

There are no real repercussions for ninjaing gear, except for being kicked from the group. Sure, in extreme cases people will try to blacklist them, but that doesn't really work. I don't know what exactly Blizz could, or would, do about it. But this isn't something that's new for us.

I feel that there are far fewer people who do the right thing because it's the right thing than there are people who do it to avoid getting in trouble.
