Jan 9th 2009 7:00PM Oh, and let's not forget one of Blizzard's favorite tricks: You were mind-raped and brainwashed! Now, the only salvation for you is DEATH!
Jan 9th 2009 6:55PM I only comment because of the 'there are no descriptions of a man being strung up on a cross with a crown of thorns on.' No. Instead you torture people yourself, interactively, as they beg you for mercy. Or at least, you're given the opportunity to do so... And there's certainly a subdued but clear description of a troll woman being raped and tortured to death by ogres in Classic WoW. The Alliance leader promotes genocide. The players engage in the murder of unborn infant sentients and brutal experimentation on infant and juvenile sentients.
The Timothy Plan really only scratched the surface of what WoW has to offer...
Dec 31st 2008 4:48PM You know, I haven't used IE for years. And I've written software that managed hashed-password-protected accounts. So none of this is really news to me (except the expensive idea that account details are kept in the same secure db as billing information-- the LOLz!).
But I still think there could be a little less of this blame-the-victim attitude. I understand how frustrating ignorance can be, but your MythBusters style to remedying it is just as frustrating because the people who most need to know this information are going to be put on the defensive by your approach. As a result, they won't read or retain the information.
Try presenting the bad guys as bad guys, rather than as a divine force of nature punishing idiots, and you might see a more positive and productive a response.

Oct 23rd 2008 6:54PM I /did/ solo heal Kara last weekend as resto shaman. I did it without Mana Tide or Healing Grace. I did have Ancestral Healing and Ancestral Awakening, and Improved Shields and Improved Earth Shield. And I had the Glyphs of Healing Spring and Water Mastery.
I'm the sort of healer who uses LHW and CH unless somebody needs a big heal, and I fell in love with Riptide. The build I healed Kara with was my second take on a build, decided on after looking at the threat and mana situation. I used Improved Healing Spring. It and Earth Shield were a lot of fun, as were trying to stack Riptide/Chain Heal/LHW in the right orders.
Oh, and my gear is all Kara/badges.
I do feel like a number of talent trees are kind of confused now; it took a lot of courage to not take what was previously one of my signature talents, but the new 51 point trees seem to encourage ignoring earlier rules and talents that were previously important.
