Shifting Perspectives: Predictions for Cataclysm druids {WoW}

Oct 6th 2010 7:58AM I'm still seriously considering not taking ToL at all, as such it doesn't really seem to be all that useful a cooldown if we're going to be pure tank healers for the time being anyways.

While it does add some mobility healing to our class with the instant regrowth, the regrowth is way too expensive to be spammed on a raid boss fight. Though it might be useful in 5-mans.

Cataclysm Beta: New character introductions for all races {WoW}

Aug 31st 2010 12:19PM Having played the Tauren starting area in Beta, the fact that Garrosh killed Cairne really isn't all that obvious. Nor does there seem to be much of any reference towards said fact except for a minor note just before you leave Mulgore.

As a longtime Tauren, I have a really hard time believing that the horde just merrily goes on with business as usual while both the Trolls and Tauren are on the edge of war with the new Horde "leader".

Blizz has a lot of storyline to unfold and explaining to do for the Horde to stay together as it is now.

Cataclysm Class Changes: Resto druid analysis {WoW}

Apr 13th 2010 9:04AM As I've mentioned to my guild, if they take away Tree form .. they're gonna have to find another healer.

I'll tank for them, I'll dps for them ... but I chose to be a Tree, they take away my Tree ... I won't even look at Resto anymore.

The Queue: Decisions, decisions {WoW}

Apr 12th 2010 11:08AM Step into a KFC/Taco Bell combo store and have some fried chicken with that Taco.

Incentives for appropriate gear types coming in Cataclysm {WoW}

Jan 28th 2010 11:07AM Does this mean they'll finally make appropriate gear for everyone ... since more then once the best gear available for Moomkins or Druid-Healers was cloth.

Plain simply because someone couldn't be bothered to put a set of good leather caster boots into the game at a particular iLevel range.

Spiritual Guidance: Paying the hybrid tax {WoW}

Jan 28th 2010 7:55AM I actually disagree with the hybrid tax, everyone has their own oppinion on it but in general how often do classes really make use of their "hybrid" functionality.

I rarely see a boomkin because an effective healer, and lets not get started on how little dps a bear geared druid does when they switch to cat for their dps phase of Festergut. Even switching to cat I cannot keep up with the overall damage our Paladin MT does, and she doesn't have to switch forms in the middle of the fight.

While the hybrid tax makes perfect sense from a PvP point of view I still feel is a extremely unfair for those that raid. When you're progression raiding and wipe at ~5% on a boss time and time again. You start wondering if you shouldn't leave that Boomkin & Shadowpriest home and bring a Mage and a Hunter in its place.

While I don't see a good solution to the Hybrid "problem" in pvp ... I don't think it is right to penalize people for picking a class that happens to do other things then what they specialize in.

Breakfast Topic: What roles do you play? {WoW}

Jan 22nd 2010 8:43AM When dual spec came out my alts went the way of the dodo and I became a tree-cat. After several months of agitation and irritation with my dps numbers and the whole energy system one of our main tanks left the guild.

Since I already had most of a feral set suitable for tanking I have since taken the 2nd tanking spot in our ICC raids. Most Heroics I still heal though.

Sometimes still do cat-dps in my bear-spec when needed. 2000-2500 dps is more then enough dps for heroics.

Pimp My Profile: Shippleton, beast mastery hunter {WoW}

Jan 20th 2010 2:17PM that's why he's asking for help ... not everyone is as fantastic like you.

The OverAchiever: Straight to the poorhouse {WoW}

Jan 14th 2010 3:32PM isn't "Insane in the Membrane" a feat ... not an achievement?
