Are achievements optional? {WoW}

Mar 17th 2009 5:14PM I generally only care about achievements if there is some type of reward attached to them, such as a mount, title, or tabard. If I end up getting something out of it rather than just (in my eyes) worthless points then I'm more inclined to try to complete the achievement.

Insider Trader: Your livelihood after patch 3.1 {WoW}

Feb 28th 2009 4:06PM I just wish bliz would give other professions half the attention that they give to inscription. Everything else feels like it gets a few nods while there is a whole mess of new and updated glyphs. So far most professions feel kinda lackluster in Wrath, at least to me.

The Queue: Engineering's BFG edition {WoW}

Feb 11th 2009 1:18AM Out of curiosity, is there an Alliance quest that centers around or at least includes the Engine of the Makers in Storm Peaks? When I saw that on my Tauren warrior I thought that would have been the focal point to some quest line but it never was. With there being a friendly elite wandering around it and the thing being so huge, I would be very surprised if bliz didn't do anything with it.

Gear vs. Skill {WoW}

Feb 10th 2009 9:07AM This is a problem I'm running into as a tank. I'm only just now getting around to doing heroics. I've done my best to gather a good starter tankng set but I know I'm not where I really need to be. My defense rating is at 490 and hp is just shy of 20K. If I do run a heroic I use my alchemy and cooking to buff myself as much as possible for each run. But still, I get turned down often because groups would rather run with a better geared tank, so how am I ever supposed to become one myself?

The Queue: Soloing Zul'Gurub like a Q {WoW}

For a leveling mage, you're gonna want to go frost spec. Fire has high damage output but not much in the way of CC or kiting ability. Leveling arcane means your gonna constantly be OOM. Frost is a good balance of damage and being able to control each fight. I've gone from level 23 to 71 in about three weeks of dedicated grinding.

Bug fixes for Hunters, Locks, and Death Knights tomorrow {WoW}

Jan 27th 2009 2:39AM So when does wintergrasp become playable again? The lag is so bad I can almost never hit anything in melee (warrior here), I don't get credit for any of my kills so I can't get a vehicle, and most times when we win I only get one wintergrasp mark instead of three.

3.0.8 seems to have broken more than it was supposed to fix.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Patch 3.0.8 makes death less sudden {WoW}

Jan 9th 2009 4:36PM I do think that the whole stance mechanic is kind of outdated in the face of how the DK presences work. They function in almost the same manner but don't come with the offsets of the penalties for the various stances, the rage loss, and the restriction of moves.

However with so many other classes getting focused on right now such as reworking locks, nerfing hunters, and overhauling healing I doubt we'll see a change to the stance mechanic any time soon. Such a big change to the class would undoubtedly take up a lot of time and effort to implement and bliz seems to think that warriors don't need the fix currently.

Breakfast Topic: The oldest WoW player you know {WoW}

Jan 7th 2009 8:27AM I have some characters in a small but very close knit leveling guild. While I've never come out and asked him, my guild leader recently gave away his daughter at her wedding. He and his wife have multiple lvl 80 characters.

Wrath 101: Flight paths in Icecrown {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2009 5:07PM I'm really annoyed that there isn't a FP in southern Icecrown and that we cannot use the FP in Wintergrasp except to leave. Without a path somewhere in that area it takes me an 8 1/2 minute flight to get to Sholozar from Dalaran which I use to farm herbs and chilled meat frequently.

Breakfast Topic: Patch 3.0.8 excitement {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2008 9:55AM The two things I'm most looking forward to is the lifting of the mount restrictions (Tauren here) and the overhaul of warrior DPS glyphs (which suck so bad right now).
