Breakfast Topic: Is there a class you just can't play? {WoW}

Mar 4th 2011 9:47AM Priest is the one I can't play. My first character was a priest I leveled to 60 in vanilla. As holy. It was awful. I'm surprised I still play the game. Since then, I've played every class to at least level 19 and I still find priest to be the worst soloing experience. That same priest at level 80 bored me to tears as a healer in dungeons and raids, so I have given up on the class.

Mar 4th 2011 9:41AM Depending on when you last tried warrior, you should give it another chance. The new talent system helps the class a lot early on as well as key soloing abilities like Victory Rush becoming available sooner.

Cataclysm 10-day trial edition announced {WoW}

Dec 17th 2010 9:52PM Even a currently inactive account can get the Cata trial. Also, you can go to any new zone you want. I flew through Uldum last night and it was awesome.

The Queue: The corner of Elizabeth and Harper {WoW}

Sep 1st 2010 6:07PM Can we have written/drawn out for us an explanation/map of each race's new leveling path through the post-Cataclysm Azeroth? I think it would be helpful for planning new characters to explore all the re-designed content as efficiently as possible.

Cataclysm Beta: Worgen /silly and /flirt sounds {WoW}

Jul 1st 2010 6:22AM Did anyone pick up that the male voice actor is Simon Templeton, the same guy that played Kain in the Legacy of Kain series?

Introductory guide to fighting warriors, Part 2 {WoW}

Apr 29th 2010 11:05PM It should be noted that a savvy protection warrior will use macros to great advantage in PvP. I have Charge, Intercept, and Intervene all on one button. If Charge is off cooldown, I charge; If Charge is on cooldown, I Intercept; if I target a group member, I Intervene (great for when I need to break a snare or root).

Hamstring gets macro'd often too. One button can switch to battle stance, Hamstring, and return to Defensive stance in a castsequence. Rage is easy to get in PvP, so stance-dancing is not something warriors should be averse to.

Another detail of protection warriors is that the last patch brought a colossal buff to Revenge. A protection warrior fighting a class that hits with weaponry is likely to be hit for ~3-4k every 4 seconds along with one of his nearby allies, not considering crits. Prot warriors will probably use some tanking gear to increase their Revenge openings. Coupled with the previous buffs to Devastate, protection is capable of steady damage output in PvP, unlike it's Shield Slam-reliant mega-bursty damage prior to 3.2.

Apr 29th 2010 6:15PM Devastate, Sunder Armor, Shield Bash, Shield Slam, Shockwave, Intervene, Intercept, Charge, Pummel, Spell Reflection, Victory Rush, Disarm, Intimidating Shout, Thunderclap.


All abilities a warrior can use without a weapon in his main hand. Disarming a warrior will hold them back a little. Disarming a protection warrior doesn't make much of a difference at all.

Breakfast Topic: Where's the epic {WoW}

Apr 27th 2010 8:50AM It depends on how much raiding you've done in the past and how good your group is. My guild hit raids hardcore at the beginning of WotLK after most members not seeing anything past Karazhan and Zul'Aman in BC. Most of them also sucked. Naxx felt pretty epic just about every week we went there, especially Sapphiron and KT. It was a big deal when we finished them as a guild!

Of course, after that, all the guild members who could play the game kept trying to move forward, but Malygos and Ulduar were too hard to drag 5 fail members through. We had really bad players, so for that 3-month window that we could raid and succeed, it felt very epic. Just depends on your perspective.

Apr 25th 2010 2:35PM Please tell me that when you group with a warrior you use Kings instead of Might.
