The Light and How to Swing It: A week of tantalizing Mists information {WoW}

Mar 24th 2012 8:03PM Oh and:

"Misconception: "Irregardless" is not a word. Merriam-Webster states that, "The most frequently repeated remark about it is that 'there is no such word.' "[50] According to Mignon Fogarty, this is an English myth. "You shouldn't use it if you want to be taken seriously, but it has gained wide enough use to qualify as a word."

The Light and How to Swing It: A week of tantalizing Mists information {WoW}

"Misconception: Using double negatives is always bad English."

There is no such thing as wrong: Only standard and non-standard uses. Words are meant to convey feelings and communication and not to uphold arbitrary rules.

Ghostcrawler discusses Mists of Pandaria buff and debuff design {WoW}

Mar 9th 2012 12:38AM Here's some food for thought:

About seven months ago, I decided to recheck out the game that really got me into the MMO Scene, Ragnarok Online.

It was, at the time, a very fun game and I had experienced only a small portion (the grind was difficult, to say the least) and I wanted to come back as an older, more experienced individual....

I was unpleasantly surprised that the core mechanics presented were wholly untouched, with the only improvements towards easier leveling and more content.

Yet, the entire combat system felt like the same old piece of crap that I left for WoW so many years ago. Things were not implemented that had been there for 6-8 years, the system was still flawed, and overall, the game felt stagnate.

I'm sure the player base of RO would vehemently defend it, but compared to WoW, the constant change really does prevent stagnation. It's why we come back with each new patch, each new expansion, and still play: You will not be bored.

Know Your Lore, TFH Edition: The naaru are a menace that must be destroyed {WoW}

Mar 4th 2012 7:31PM The Fridge Horror I'm experiencing at the moment is quite frightening. Holy crap man!

Shifting Perspectives: Symbiosis, druids, and you {WoW}

Feb 29th 2012 8:24PM I'd like to note that in the same thread:

"Symbiosis cannot be cast in combat"

Breakfast Topic: What's the best race for each class? {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 9:32AM I'm completely biased for Goblins, but I can say they don't fit every class.

Death Knight: Humans. I blame Arthas
Druid: Troll
Hunter: Tauren
Mage: Gnome
MONK: Orc
Paladin: Dwarf
Priest: Night Elf
Rogue: Undead
Shaman: Goblin
Warlock: Blood Elf
Warrior: Orc/Goblin

Breakfast Topic: What's the best race for each class? {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 9:22AM Well if we are going to start nit picking other opinions on an opinion thread:

Human ANYTHING shouldn't sound weird, as almost every single role has been held by a human in every capacity in real life, baring the magic and the Death Knight class.

If you mean in a D&D sense, well, like most other classes, the paladin abilities are strictly even across the board for game play reasons. Lore wise, most races use VERY different reasons and justifications for their abilities. An Undead priest healer, by lore, is actively putting themselves in pain from using holy magic, and it hurts horribly.

Tauren Paladins are natural Paladins because they are using Holy Sun magic in a melee form, and using the deep and prolific beliefs they have for their order (which, while brand new, is still an order). They are able to wield it for the Horde (which is a quasi-feudal order of six races working together).

So, in a nutshell, let's stay off and enjoy the thread for what it's worth =P

Breakfast Topic: What's the best race for each class? {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 9:03AM That is either some epic trolling, or the best typo ever.

+1 either way

Spiritual Guidance: Priests, shields and AoE healing in Mists of Pandaria {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 12:20AM That is a good point.

If mana cannot be increased anymore then the base cost becomes the actual cost, and at 27% base mana Greater Heal could be used less than for times in a row. Subject to change, of course.

Drama Mamas: Choosing between preferred class and raid leader {WoW}

Feb 20th 2012 1:52PM Tanking to me is a role that allows for easy leadership.

Once you get to a comfortable level of threat, you can lay off the hard rotation (If you so choose, and dependent on the current situation of course) and go with an increased survival rotation, which to be honest, can be simple most of the time.

With DPS, you are bound every second to commit as much effort as you can for the entire duration of the fight. Even knowing your spec top to bottom, a player who is doing call outs as a DPS is making a risk in losing seconds of time making sure situations go smoothly. It is doable though.

On Topic,

I think it's time for ShaftedLeader to move on. Attempting to stay with those memories will be a miserable experience for all those involved, as the attitude displayed, while valid and understandable, is detrimental to the raid's health.

The green shoreline awaits.
