The Queue: Caturday {WoW}

Sep 4th 2010 6:43PM Just a point of contention to Rob's post.
From what I've read, the leveling mobs in Cataclysm are not easy. They hit hard (7-8k) and have lots of special abilities like stuns and charges. Damage reduction, slows, and similar talents/spells appear to be much more necessary when questing.

These mobs of course are more tuned to people with Cataclysm gear, and its massive surplus of stamina and other stats. I would assume there will some difficulties stepping into Cataclysm zones at 78 with questing greens from Wrath.

Breakfast Topic: Are you a closet nerd or a flag-waving nerd? {WoW}

Sep 1st 2010 10:36AM Closet nerds raise your hands up like you just don't care! Except we really do care too much about other people's opinions cause if we didn't we wouldn't be closet nerds!

Hmm, that's a really long thing to chant while waving your hands.

15 Minutes of Fame: Raiding on 8 hours a week {WoW}

Aug 31st 2010 4:24PM My guild raids only 1 day a week for 6-6.5 hours and we're like 8/12 Heroic without much focus on progression.
Congrats to them for doing what they do, but raiding like that isn't really that uncommon anymore.

The Queue: Electronic books? Well, I never! {WoW}

Aug 24th 2010 4:26PM Is there a set formula for stat conversion for pre-cataclysm items? Like a weapon with 300 spellpower and 60 intellect becomes a 360 intellect weapon in Cataclysm?

Also if you really want an ebook reader, just get the nook from Barnes and Nobles. Its basically the same thing as the Kindle, but B&N is in financial trouble so you're more likely to get some sort of bargain deal.

China is finally getting Wrath of the Lich King {WoW}

The Daily Quest: The mage vs. warlock battle {WoW}

May 4th 2010 10:56PM I like how its referred to as a battle, yet the mages have such an overwhelming tactical and strategical advantage the only reason warlocks are still a class is that mages require targets to practice wanding on.

Arcane Brilliance: Why Mana Adept might not suck {WoW}

Apr 24th 2010 12:31PM This. I had always wondered what it would be like to have a mechanic where you balance the line of no mana and high damage.
Then Blizzard releases the previews, I read them too quickly and get excited, then sad when I reread it.
I realized that Blizzard did indeed read my mind, but they did it backwards.

Arcane Brilliance: Stealing spells for fun and profit {WoW}

Apr 17th 2010 3:03PM Just a side note; as Arcane, I once spellstole a buff off the trash mobs in Nexus right before the mage boss.
The buff was for 50% haste and 500 spellpower.
The next pull was the boss. I popped CDs, with the spellsteal buff still on, and killed the boss in 9 seconds. 16.7k dps.

Queue for Celestial Steed and Lil' XT is above 140,000 {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 5:50PM 4 hour queue is like 40 minutes.
Mine was 7 hours with 60k people when it started and it less than an hour.
