Arcane Brilliance: A friendly introduction to mage crowd control {WoW}

Dec 26th 2010 12:44AM Burning Crusade came almost FOUR years ago, in January of 2007.

The Classifieds: News briefs on guilds and players {WoW}

Jan 13th 2010 4:26PM Honestly, the Guildwatch Drama section was why I read the site. I hope you reconsider.

You are not invited to the Cataclysm alpha {WoW}

Jan 11th 2010 6:04AM Even if you are a friend of a Blizzard employee, their ability to invite you to this alpha may be limited.

Officers' Quarters: Time for another rant {WoW}

Mar 16th 2009 3:16PM It's a shame you haven't heard more appreciative feedback from your members. I spent two years as GM of a guild that started out as a small leveling guild at level 35 and ended up clearing the first couple bosses of Hyjal before a group of our core raiders left over stresses that had come from the growth required to do that. Nevertheless, most people were quite generous and understanding about the level of organization required. The number 1 thing I would hear was "I could never do your job!"

The guild's still going, under new leadership, and I've happily moved on to a new server and a guild run by others, and while I often share my opinions about what we should be doing, I never complain about the difficult and sometimes unpleasant choices the GM has to make just to keep the guild functioning.

Thing is, a successful guild is one that sets out collective goals and then recruits members that embrace and work toward those goals. If you feel your goals don't match the guild's, that's not necessarily the guild's fault; it might simply be a sign that you need to find a guild with goals closer to your own.

Breakfast Topic: The noob old days {WoW}

Mar 2nd 2009 3:46PM
About repairing:

I understood repairing when I was leveling my first toon, but it was a problem because I didn't realize that gray items sold for more money than white items at vendors.

So, I'd delete the gray items to make room for more white items, vendor them all, and run out of money at my next repair.

Finally, a guy I knew who played explained the idea of "vendor trash" to me, and also suggested that I farm Stringy Wolf Meat for all the 60s who were skilling up cooking to raid at the time. Instantly, my money situation turned around and I had enough to pay for my mount well before hitting 40!

Breakfast Topic: The noob old days {WoW}

Mar 2nd 2009 3:34PM I had the same experience. Luckily, the next day I was able to ask my coworkers, who had gotten me into the game, whether I was on the right track. All they told me was "No, if you're headed that direction you're definitely going the wrong way."

Officers' Quarters: Topping the charts {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2009 6:22PM According to their blog, wowjutsu is now using achievements in rankings. It's not clear exactly how, but it probably has to do with how they decide whether to give a guild credit for a kill based on new gear on a character.

Officers' Quarters: Topping the charts {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2009 6:17PM Regarding lvl 80 gear:

If someone's in T6/Sunwell gear, as our guild was, they might well have headed straight into Wrath raiding with some of it, particularly as a DPS or healing class.

However, the bulk of those people have probably replaced their gear with Wrath gear by now.

Raid buffs overhauled for 3.0.2 {WoW}

Aug 30th 2008 12:42AM "Our guild's shadow priests were always contenders for #1 dps back in T4 content and into T5. If you're not, it implies to me that you're doing something wrong."

Problem is that with current gear scaling, shadow priests entering T6 never get much beyond about 1000 dps while other classes continue beyond to 1500-2000 dps. So yeah, they're great for T4 & T5, but then they stall out.
