Nielsen: WoW is most played core game by 25-54 females {WoW}

Apr 15th 2009 8:46AM Our raid leader is a girl, and a bloody good one at that.

She also has the foulest mouth that I have experienced in the game so far :P

Observations from running a Naxx-25 PuG, part II {WoW}

Apr 9th 2009 6:17AM A guildmate of mine runs a lot of PuGs, and he's very harsh but very fair.

Lots of /afks? Out
Crappy dps? Out
Don't do your assignment? Out
Fail at something specific more than once? Out

Those who fail often complain, but there is never any issue getting replacements.

They're also very successful.

Breakfast Topic: Is your guild prepared for Patch 3.1? {WoW}

Apr 6th 2009 8:27AM We've pretty much finished gearing our people out ready for Ulduar.

A few more casters need their TTT, but aside from that we're pretty much done. I even have a half decent Arms set for when dual specs come out.

We've built up a war chest as well to pay for raid repairs on progression nights. Thanks to the BoE purples dropping in Naxx, we're up to about 50k gold :D

The only real concern is about focus. All content (including Sarth 3D 25 man) has been on farm for a number of months now, and people are getting sloppy, myself included. TBH I hope that Ulduar will be a rude awakening for us, and a return to the focus that saw us plough through the T7 content at a fast rate of knots.

The Queue: Procs and more on Patch 3.1 {WoW}

Mar 12th 2009 6:53AM Grid and Clique are your friends for that

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Expertise and hit in WoTLK {WoW}

Jan 30th 2009 5:07AM The general consensus on Tankspot is that even if you have a specialisation in something other than axes, Last Laugh is still streets ahead of anything else as a tanking weapon.

Ready Check: Guide to Naxxramas (Thaddius) {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2009 9:01AM We use ledge (Neg) and wall (Pos), and keep people on the same side as him. Everyone stands in melee range to stack the debuff. The tank stands on top of the relevant group, otherwise threat is an issue.

No need to run through him, just strafe left and right.

Aside from some new people, the only shocks we seem to get now are people who are DC'd or lagged.

Breakfast Topic: Would you join an "Anything Goes" realm? {WoW}

Jan 15th 2009 12:10PM I'd like the opposite, and would indeed pay extra for a more closely moderated PvE realm.

Anal [Dirge]? Instaban
OT in trade? Instaban
Toon Names against the EULA? Instaban
Tastless Guild Names? Instaban
Guild names that are a cime against Grammar (I'm looking at you "Reborned" of Kilrogg-EU /shudder) Instaban
Griefing? Instaban
Leetspeak? Instaban
Spamming? Instaban

Include a realmwide general channel for the OT crap and keep the Trade channel for what it was meant to be.

Breakfast Topic: Identity Crisis {WoW}

Jan 12th 2009 9:09AM I got around the identity crisis by swapping guilds and mains at the same time.

There are some people in my new guild who were previously in my old guild, and it took them a while to get used to my new name and toon, but they made it in the end.

I swapped from a Warlock to a Warrior, and given the nerf to warlocks, I'm pretty happy about the move.

I'm sure I'll level my old main to 80 at some point, but not until Sarth 3D is on farm at least :)

Breakfast Topic: Starting the year with fail {WoW}

Jan 5th 2009 5:26AM Picked to Main Tank 25 Man Thaddius for the first time.

Feugen and Stalag went down smooth.

Turned and ran - and failed the jump.

Fail. Just epic Fail.

/facepalm
