The truth about Ret fixes {WoW}

Oct 16th 2008 2:14PM Sadly enough, Brofessional has the best point so far. Ret Pallys were OP, yes. But Brofessional the balance they are talking about is balance between classes not balancing within the class itself.

What Blizzard should take into account is the rest of the points you have made in your post. They need to know if you're going to nerf a class to bring it into "balance" with the other classes that it should be a fair nerf not a possible game changing nerf. I believe somewhere I read on a forum post by GC that certain talents are in certain tiers because they are better or worse than others (I wish I had a link but I don't). Giving Paladins talents very similar to warriors in deeper tiers is not only unfair, but it is game changing. If Paladin deep tier talents are similar to upper tier warrior talents that means Paladin talents above that are worse than any warrior talents at all. The best paladins could hope for was a whirlwind like ability and divine storm is it, but whirlwind is not a 51 point talent...

Those of you who have seen me post on here know that I do not complain on these blogs/articles ever, but this nerf is potentially game changing and could easily throw off the entire balancing process Blizzard has been trying to achieve for the past few months. They must have just tossed their Talent Tier Theory out the window for this hotfix and that is disappointing.

Reminder: Meet WoW Insider tonight at The Lost Bar at 8pm {WoW}

Oct 9th 2008 6:04PM Although we got pooped on by Blizzard when we were trying to get our BlizzCon tickets, my entire WoW family will be in attendance at The Lost Bar tonight to talk about our favorite and least favorite aspects of WoTLK. I will be wearing my Alliance T-Shirt and my brother will be wearing a shirt saying "Don't forget to eat. (Real food not in-game)."

Feel free to walk up and say hi to us as well. My name is Boal (or Bobby IRL) and my brother is Vas (or Adam IRL). I think I might even bring my girlfriend who does not play WoW... But I think I might lock her in the car if she whines about how long I'm taking or how boring the stuff I'm talking about is...

On second thought I'm not bringing her. The risk is not worth the reward. Similar to many lowbie quests in Redridge.

Kungaloosh drink honors Disney's Adventurers Club {WoW}

Sep 9th 2008 5:13PM I live about 5 minutes from Disneyland (I can see and hear the fireworks from my upstairs bedroom), and a quick freeway-hop to the ACC. Sadly, I will not be attending Blizzcon due to a college basketball game I have to participate in over the weekend, but I would like to attend a WoW-Insider event outside the convention center so I have compiled a very short list of places nearby that would be great for any meet-up event:

1. Downtown Disney - ESPN Zone, The House of Blues, and Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen are just a few places in DTD that can handle extremely large groups with ease.

2. Plaza Garibaldi - Voted Anaheim's #1 place for meet-ups and events. It is a Mexican food restaurant and so much more. From their website, "Our restaurant is named for the famous Plaza Garibaldi in Mexico where fabulous food, refreshing beverages and exciting music are a tradition." They have a Dinner Theater where a Mariachi band usually plays, but upon request it can be used for any speaker (such as a WoW-Insider columnist). They also have two huge plasma TVs in there... We could ask them to get the Blizzcon PPV.

3. Anaheim Garden Walk - 37 Stores and Restaurants are currently open in Anaheim's newest shopping and entertainment center. It is located near the Honda Center and The Pond so it is prime real estate between Disneyland and the Convention Center. My personal choice for the Garden Walk is Roy's. It is a Hawaiian Restaurant, but it is a bit pricey. They have a laid back decor as you would expect, but the staff and management are more than accommodating to large groups and events.

So there it is. You asked for some ideas and coming from a local I figured I could give some insight. If my opinion mattered at all I would say Plaza Garibaldi because we as a WoW-Insider community could do so much with the stage and the TVs, not to mention the food is delicious and the drinks are amazing. Any other locals feel free to weigh in on my recommendations and columnists please let me know what you think!
