"Me gunna Carve ya now!"
"You gunna leave in pieces!"

also, I have a great sadness for all who play alliance, not knowing the aural JOY that is Bloodlust being cast on an entire raid.


The Queue: You have been pwned by a grue {WoW}

The Queue: You have been pwned by a grue {WoW}

Mar 17th 2009 11:48AM Firstly: Nice to see XKCD getting a pug, easily one of the funniest webcomics out there, I follow it religiously.

secondly: In regards to dual spec, what happens to pieces of gear you want to use in both specs (thinking particularly of my Betrayer of Humanity on my DK here)

while in my primary (tanking) spec, I'll want it to be runed with Stoneskin Gargoyle, but if I then activate my secondary (DPS) spec, I'll want the same weapon with Fallen Crusader.

Before Dual Spec, this wasn't an issue, as if i was respeccing in Archerus, the Runeforges were right there.

But the whole point of dual spec is to have 2 specs you can change between while out in the world (or in a raid) Shouldn't my runes change as well, glyphs do, why not runes?

While I suspect the answer will be that I still have to travel to Archerus (or Icecrown), then what's the point in dual spec for me? (aside from the monetary impact) If I have to travel to Archerus anyway, dualspec or no, then what's the point?

I realise that I could simply 'make do' with the inferior rune, but the people making most use of the dual spec system are going to be those willing to min-max, and are going to end up porting to archerus each respec anyway for minmax purposes.

Breakfast Topic: Who's the boss? {WoW}

Mar 6th 2009 9:02AM Leotheras the blind, tanking him as a warlock was so damn fun.

Or pre nerf magtheridon, where you actually had to work in teams.

Blizz wants more Frost and Blood, working on EP fix {WoW}

Feb 4th 2009 7:46PM When reading about deathknights in beta, and when I finally got around to rolling one, my main thought was 'Sweet, here comes the unholy disease machine'

what has actually happened is that I've fallen completely in love with frost, IMO it's the most solid tree, and is a HELL of a lot of fun to play, anyone who has spread frost fever and fired off a guaranteed crit howling blast knows what i'm talking about..


Addon Spotlight: AutoBar {WoW}

Jan 25th 2009 2:39PM Been using autobar for years now, it's one of those addons I couldn't be without.

Does what it's supposed to do perfectly, and saves so much bagspace.

Blood Pact: Warlocks taking a hit {WoW}

Dec 20th 2008 6:19PM Warlocks are still absolutely fine on pve raid bosses (affliction is arguably the most complex rotation ingame, but that's a different story)

We are bottom of the ladder everywhere else, battleground,wintergrasp, arena, 5-mans, and most heroics.

I'd agree that the article is whiny, but not overly so.

Also note, he did not state priests were fine in pvp, but simply that they have more survivability across the board, with survival abilities in each tree where warlocks have none, I know priests are sub-par in pvp, but you're still far better off than warlocks.

I don't think warlocks have been nerfed significantly, just that everyone else has been buffed considerably in wrath, while the warlock feels and plays the same as it has done for at least a year or so.

With the exception of haunt, If you're using your 51 point talents as a lock atm, you're in a bad raid build, and WILL NOT compete on dps.
