Sprite Darters and Westfall Chickens for the Horde {WoW}

Mar 9th 2009 9:51AM Yeah Lyonesse, wtf is it with the alliance love?

Alliance has 16 exclusive cooking recipes. Horde has 8.

How do we fix this to make "Chef" more accessible? Take one horde-exclusive recipe and make it available to alliance. Like, duh, obviously.

Right?

I'm a pissed-off Hordie that is 5 recipes short of the achievement, and I can't get the others at all. No, I'm not going to spend 10k gold for an alliance recipe, thank you very much.

In the category of "finally": Raid ID confirmation windows in 3.1 {WoW}

Feb 27th 2009 5:51PM Fail. This is bad interface design. Let me tell you exactly what will happen.

The first time a raider sees it: "Ooh, neat. Now I won't get saved to instances I don't want to be saved to anymore."

The 10th time a raider sees it: "Getting pretty annoying. Yes I want to be saved to the instance, WTF would I enter it if I didn't?"

The 20th time: "Yes, yes, goddamn, yes, just go away."

Shortly after: "Wait, why is this set to heroic? Shit, now I'm saved to a half-cleared Naxx-25, gg Blizzard"

Putting a confirmation dialog on something that's expected to occur every time you enter a new dungeon will result in everyone reflexively pressing "Yes", same thing as the EULA you always get when installing software.

Poor design. GG Blizzard.

New profession recipes on the patch 3.1 PTR {WoW}

Feb 24th 2009 11:28AM Wow. How nice. Leatherworking, Tailoring and Blacksmithing get epic lvl 80 recipes. Engineering gets a neat toy.

What does Alchemy get? A fricking lvl 15 potion that no one will use. Awesome.

Totem Talk: Halls of Stone and Lightning, CoT Stratholme {WoW}

Dec 18th 2008 1:59PM GJ at describing a leather item as "thankfully mail". Upholding the standards of the shaman column, I see.

Tuesday Morning Post: Patch 3.0.8 roulette {WoW}

Dec 16th 2008 10:05AM The mental quickness change was reverted like a week ago.

http://blue.mmo-champion.com/28/13393781372-why-the-change-to-mental-quickness.html

"Long story short, after reading your feedback and thinking about it some more, we no longer like this change and are going to revert it.

We will likely swap the positions of Mental Quickness and Static Shock as some of you have suggested.

Bottom line: Mental Quickness will still convert attack power to spell power."

I guess this means we'll see the shaman column here soon whining about the nerf, they're always late and never up to date with what's current.

15 Minutes of Fame: Tanking with a panic button {WoW}

Nov 25th 2008 2:55PM I honestly wonder how many of these disorders are self-diagnosed.

Changes to AoE in patch 3.0.4 {WoW}

Nov 25th 2008 11:20AM Why the hell would they do that?

I mean, seriously, these are the people who responded to the vulnerability of Tremor and Earthbind totems (both earth totems) by modifying Stoneclaw to protect other totems... Only it's an Earth totem too and there is no @#$?@# reason to protect any other totem in PVP.

I hate whoever the Shaman designers are, they just don't get it.

Totem Talk: Dragonblight and Azjol-Nerub {WoW}

Nov 20th 2008 3:29PM "EJ shows WF/WF Slow/Slow as top dog. Period."

EJ says to use enhsim. Enhsim tells me that for my stats WF/FT Slow/Slow is better than WF/WF. Period. Tested and confirmed on dummies and mobs.

Enhsim. Learn it. Love it.

And seriously, every time I read the shaman column at WI I get the feeling I either don't know my class or the columnist doesn't know the class. FT helping MW crits? Really? How so? FT does @#$? all for MW. WF procs it, FT doesn't add any hits and won't get you any more MW procs than an unenchanted weapon.

The new WoW Insider and the launch of Wrath of the Lich King {WoW}

Nov 6th 2008 2:10PM I have to say, I hate, hate, hate, hate, HATE web sites which make use of about 30% of my screen space for the main content gutter.

I have a widescreen 24" monitor. Why do I feel like I'm reading a newspaper with tiny columns? A full 35% of my screen is unused, and the majority of the used space is by toolbars to the left and right.

No thanks. At least give us an option to use the old theme. It wasn't perfect, but this one is worse.
