Heart of the Aspects video and giveaway {WoW}

Feb 15th 2012 5:21PM Nice mount - I'd like one :)

Addons that you wish were still around {WoW}

Feb 8th 2012 7:50PM "I JUST HAD A MAZZLEGASM!" Yes, I remember Mazzle fondly. What I LOVED about Mazzle was the asking questions to set up a custom experience. What I HATED about Mazzle was everytime there was a patch, it had to be completely reworked.

I know you said that you just finally did your own, but there was a pretty decent replacement that came along called ArkiveUI. It doesn't do the front end questions and stuff, but it is really about the closest to the look and feel of MazzleUI.

Addon Spotlight: Addon Roulette and win a Razer Nostromo {WoW}

Oct 28th 2011 1:30AM Being an older gamer (well, I'll be 40 next month) my eyes aren't what they used to be. Keeping an eye on those tiny little buff icons can be a real problem. I used to use 'Tell Me When' to solve this issue but now I much prefere Power Auras Classic. I can set up a tell for myself, make it large, flash, make noise, whatever! I also use it to remind me when buffs fall off. It has become my favorite add on of all time.

Spiritual Guidance: 8 reasons why your shadow priest DPS sucks {WoW}

Jun 10th 2011 4:18AM Tish, might I suggest you give MF Clip a look. You can organize the 'live bars' to be in the same order as your buttons, which is how i keep things in order. Pretty lightweight, easy to configure, and full of awesomeness, IMO.

Spiritual Guidance: 8 reasons why your shadow priest DPS sucks {WoW}

Jun 9th 2011 5:31AM One more idea I use. I do not have a 'rotation' per say but one of my first buttons I hit? Fade. It gives me 10 seconds to apply all my dots (have you ever had DP pull from the tank?) and is up 15 seconds after I first hit it. That alone has been a nice increase in my dps.

Another thing, using some sort of dot/proc monitor. I use MF clip to watch my dots and Power Aura Classic to watch for procs. Theralion's Mirror procced? Yes, it's time to put up a fresh empowered shadow and refresh VT and DP. Do I have 2 out of the three following procs up: DMC: Volcano, Lightweave, Power Torrent? If so, I'm probably going to SW:D on cooldown to get as much mana back as possible.

Just a couple of ideas...

What's your voice comm system of choice? {WoW}

Mar 11th 2011 1:54AM We recently switched to mumble from vent and so far, we are pretty happy. The only issues I have that I have are:

1) In vent, I could have a password protected channel and if I pulled someone in, they could speak. In mumble, from what I can tell, they have to be given permission to enter on their own to be able to hear/speak.

2) Overall, the interface isn't as 'nice' and 'refined' as Vent's, but it isn't terribad.

3) The skwaking...ow, the skwaking.

4) There isn't as much documentation that is as easy to find for Mumble.

If anyone has any heads up on any of the above, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Blizzard: No triple spec on the horizon, but it's not ruled out {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2011 11:54AM I didn't read through all the posts to see if someone else already suggested this, but I've put it out on forums and such and I hope that eventually a blue will see it and either consider it or shoot it down completely.

PVP -ONLY spec

Why? Well, for one thing, it would allow us to experience pvp (since blizz wants us to do that) in a non painful (i.e. not having to respec) way. As a priest, I have a pvp spec and a pve spec, both shadow. If I need to heal, I have to take them time, pay for it, etc.

However, and THIS is the REAL REASON why I think a PVP ONLY spec would be best: so we never again have to read the phrase 'this was too powerful in PVP so we are nerfing it!' One of the biggest complaints about nerf or buffs is that blizz is trying to balance (usually) PVP and they screw us up in PVE.

Here is how I envision it. A completely seperate set of talents for PVP, and the spec automagically switches when you enter a pvp area (i.e BG, Arena, Wintergrasp, TB pvp area, etc.) You switch gear sets, tool bars, everything. (Now, I can hear some saying that on a PVP server, this might not work but if neither person has a PVP spec in the world (outside of actual PVP only zones) then there is no advantage to either player.)

This way, Blizzard can stop trying to tune two completely different play styles with one tool. Tune PVP on its' own, and PVE on its' own. I know that this is probably not the PERFECT solution, but I happen to thing it is a pretty good one.
