Poll: Are you level 80 yet? {WoW}

Dec 7th 2008 8:21PM I don't agree with the 'If you're 80 you're hardcore' thing.

My MUM has a level 80 ffs :P and she's anything but hardcore, needs my help with many quests, forgets she has certain spells and doesn't even have then on her bar etc, etc.

Plus she Deals with 5 children, and frequently cannot play for a couple days.

Breakfast Topic: Should raid progression even be tracked anymore? {WoW}

Dec 4th 2008 8:26AM I agree completely with what's being said in this post.

I am however, very surprised to see this on wowinsider, which I always perceived to be very pro-blizzard.

no doubt many will call this qq, and they're probably right. Just because it's qq doesn't make it wrong.

TwentyFifthNovember becomes Ensidia {WoW}

Nov 24th 2008 9:13PM A guild changes its name, how is this news?

only relevant to people actually in that guild, and I'm pretty sure they'd know about it without it being on WoWinsider.

This kind of information belongs in the guildwatch column, not in it's own post.

IMO ofc.

Essential Addons for Wrath of the Lich King {WoW}

SNAP!

Essential Addons for Wrath of the Lich King {WoW}

Nov 11th 2008 10:04AM An addon I've used for years now, so much so that playing without it is a royal pain is Autobar.

It provides a dynamic action bar, which automatically scans your inventory to populate the bar.

it has hearthstone, bandages, mounts,food, drinks, buff food, potions, weapon oils, weapon buffs ( spellstones, shaman buffs, poisons) professions, usable quest items (astromancers crystal, murloc control orbs etc)

The best thing about the bar is that once an item is used, or all charges depleted, it is removed from the bar, meaning you never have greyed-out icons with '0' on them.

It also groups items in order of strength - for example - if you have 3 types of food in your bac, when you hover over the button, drops down to all 3 foods and you can pick which one you want to eat, it can be set to remember that choice and have the most recent clicked to be the main icon.

I really recommend giving it a try, it saves me a lot of actionbar space.

Brew of the Month: Bartlett's Bitter Brew {WoW}

Nov 1st 2008 3:20PM If you barf on others, they get the 'slimed' debuff, and a 'nauseous' buff themselves.

when they spew on someone, the same happens again.

The girded gut debuff prevents 2 players chaining barfs, but 3 players can chain vomit indefinitely :)

All the World's a Stage: So you want to be a blood elf {WoW}

Oct 27th 2008 9:45AM /agree with Nana

There is a significant Alliance bias in these articles. I think the main reason for this is most Alliance RP'ers think of themselves as the good guys, and (intentionally or not) gloss over the mistakes in their history.

For further examples of this, go take a look at the 'So you want to be a Draenei' article, and some of my comments, and subsequent responses.

The Light and How to Swing It: Something's gone terribly wrong {WoW}

Oct 25th 2008 10:48PM The nerf to judgements of the wise, has MASSIVE implications on pve DPS.

Early beta testing and theorycrafting done over at elitist jerks (check: http://elitistjerks.com/f31/t17193-paladin_retribution_dps_theorycraft ) shoes that retribution paladins run out of mana at around 2:10 now. our dps cycle is only sustainable for a very short time now with this nerf.

damage coefficients on seals etc can always be tweaked, but the JotW change is game-breaking for ret pallys, and I'm at a loss as to why you don't recognise this.
