Know Your Lore: The Eternals part three -- the Titans, page 2 {WoW}

Jul 25th 2010 8:19AM I'm pretty sure that while very long lived, Aegwynn still counts as a mortal and not only has she seen Sargeras, she kicked his arse.

Also, as pointed out already, Broxigar is a mortal and he too has not only seen Sargeras but given him a massive pain in the leg.

While Sargeras was corrupted he was still technically a titan, therefore mortals have seen a titan.

Shifting Perspectives: Pulling 101: Assessing the group {WoW}

Jul 20th 2010 11:52PM The only reason you'd get downrated would be for not understanding the meaning of the word 'incipient'. It means 'in the beginning', 'fetal' or 'formative'. That is quite different to the meaning of 'first' and therefore it most certainly is not a synonym of it.

WoW Moviewatch: WarLock {WoW}

Jun 28th 2010 12:28PM iconic

1. of, pertaining to, or characteristic of an icon.
2. Art . (of statues, portraits, etc.) executed according to a convention or tradition.

Learn to English mate, her voice isn't iconic, it's terrible.

The Light and How to Swing It: Looting the Crimson Halls {WoW}

Jan 28th 2010 7:14PM "Don't forget to go grab your shoulder enchants from those Hodir boys."

Why would you do this when the PVP Gladiator shoulder enchant gives more effective health for a tank and is by far the shoulder enchant of choice for sword and board tanks?

Bobby Kotick didn't think Blizzard was worth $7 million in '96 {WoW}

Jan 22nd 2010 5:17AM "that's pretty much it, save for a few one-off games like Blackthorne and The Lost Vikings."

Um, can I be the first to point out that Lost Vikings wasn't a one off game, it had a sequel that was made by Blizzard.

Arcane Brilliance: Gemming for mages {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2010 12:21AM Math fail:

1st cast crit chance - 25%
2nd cast crit chance - 25%
Chance that 2nd cast's crit chance is affected by first cast - 0%

2 consecutive spells, each with a 25% crit chance, unaffected by eachother means that the chance of getting a) 1st crit, 2nd non-crit, b) 1st non-crit, 2nd non-crit, c) 1st non-crit, 2nd crit or d) 1st crit, 2nd crit, is absolutely identical. It's 25%. The odds are unaffected by eachother.

For example;

I flip a coin and it lands tails, the odds of this happening are 50%. I flip it again, again wanting tails. Are the odds of this being tails reduced? No.

When an event is not affected by previous or following events then the % chance of a particular outcome is also unaffected.

Statistically, the odds of n number of consecutive results in this example, given a 50-50 outcome probability, is 2^(n-1).

Arcane Brilliance: Mage leveling guide, 59-68 {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2009 12:34AM You're correct but I shouldn't expect him to edit his article or even read the comments. My correction on Major/Minor glyphs in his last column was completely ignored.

Arcane Brilliance: Mage leveling guide, 41 to Outland {WoW}

Nov 14th 2009 9:39PM Think you'll find it's the second MINOR glyph slot. 2nd Major comes at 30.

Possible new race/class combinations datamined {WoW}

Aug 14th 2009 9:28PM "And they learned that arcane magic was BAD since it caused The Great Sundering (you know, the Maelstrom) and the drew the Burning Legion to Azeroth. Learning from mistakes is probably what sets the Night Elves above other races *cough*humans*cough* so suddenly having a lot of Night Elves rolling mages... yeah, I don't see that happening. Lore wise."

Arcane magic isn't bad if used in a balanced way, just ask any druid, mages also used the arcane arts in a balanced way. The only class using the arcane in a risky way are Warlocks and if they started allowing Nelfs to roll those then I'd have a 'stupid change is stupid' field day with it.

Also it was a druid who was responsible for the Sundering, Malfurion Stormrage caused the Well of Eternity to collapse in his battle with Azshara which caused the splitting of the Kalimdor landmass into the three known continents seperated by the Maelstrom.

I guess what I'm trying to say is by and large when a lore character has had good intentions in the use of the arcane nothing bad usually happens, however those with evil intent who misuse the arcane arts really screw things up.

As you say, the Night Elves learn from their mistakes so would know that a regulated and decent use of the arcane is not necessarily a bad thing.

Aug 14th 2009 7:55PM I reckon it'll just use the boss forms from ZA lol.
