Cataclysm cinematic now available {WoW}

Oct 17th 2010 5:28PM This is a really great cinematic but I honestly think the Wrath one was better. It still gives me nerd-chills.

Drama Mamas: When a guildie does something abhorrent {WoW}

Sep 10th 2010 6:20PM That's ridiculous. A domesticated cat is not a wild animal, and while cats can certainly survive on their own, an urban environment is not their "natural" one. How long would you survive in the wilderness, in your "natural state?" Giving up on an animal for whom you have accepted responsibility is, well irresponsible.

The abandonment isn't even the central issue here, it's the guildmate's lying, embellishment, and justification of his behavior.

Defining Playstyles: Beyond casual vs. hardcore {WoW}

Aug 31st 2010 8:51PM Time Crunched for sure. I read EJ and Tankspot and like to make sure that my rotation spec, gems, and enchants are all optimal. My guild is relatively small on a rather weak server progression-wise (we run one 10 man group a week) and our raids happen to be right when my family tends to eat dinner (obviously a more important event). I've done 6/12 ICC exactly once, in a pug.

I'd love to raid, but it just doesn't fit into my schedule and I'm wary of spending too much time on WoW.

Breakfast Topic: The alt before the storm {WoW}

Aug 28th 2010 3:13PM I have my main (warlock) and a death knight sitting at 80 (though I've given up the horrendous experience of gearing up a tank and the DK now serves as an AH mule). My brother has an 80 warrior (different server) whose raids I've been called on to finish and such (if anyone's wondering, we're fully compliant with the EULA/TOS, no real account sharing).

This leaves 7 classes for me to level. I have a shaman at 32 who's healing his way up, and I have an alt of every other class (except warrior) on my server (two druids, actually). I currently have a set of plate, mail physical DPS, mail caster, leather DPS, and cloth heirlooms, along with weapons for all of them.

Right now I'm planning to spend whatever Triumphs I get from my daily random heroic and the weekly quest to buy the heirloom trinkets, and maybe some more niche heirloom armor (e.g. leather caster). As the BE starting zone is remaining untouched, I'm leveling my paladin to 10 and then parking him in UC. The rest of my alts I'm getting up to 6 and then running to the second hub (Brill, Dolanaar, etc.) and awaiting the Cataclysm! I'll probably level my main to 85 and get the new guild heirloom items before I go through all the new leveling content.

The OverAchiever: Cataclysm achievements FAQ {WoW}

Aug 27th 2010 2:46PM Actually, that makes sense now that I think about it. Seeing as the vast majority of the quests that need to be completed for Loremaster no longer exist, everyone is going to be in the same boat regarding the new zone quest achievements.

Looks like I'm going to be going through Azeroth on my main again :)

The OverAchiever: Cataclysm achievements FAQ {WoW}

Aug 26th 2010 8:36PM I have question concerning the vanilla zone quest achievements/Loremaster pre-reqs.

Are these rewarded retroactively? I have Loremaster already so I've probably completed most of them. It would be nice not to be locked out of a few more achievements!

Reader UI of the Week: Gerzroz' UI {WoW}

May 11th 2010 5:49PM I'm with Ahoni up there—even though I bind (almost) all of my abilities, I like to have them there in front of me as well.

I haven't really played any other MMO's, but if I had to add something to the default interface, it would have to be a debuff timer. Such addons are virtually mandatory for anything other than grinding mobs... (that's not really the question, but it's close :P )

Speaking of panels and textures, I think a how-to on using kgpanels and similar addons would be great. I for one would love to incorporate panels and backgrounds into my UI but I just don't have the know-how. Maybe you could list some good internet resources/sites or offer some tips!

Reader UI of the Week: Mvin's UI {WoW}

Apr 20th 2010 9:31PM Agreed. This is a beautiful UI. It's the kind of thing I'd love to do with mine, but I think I'd need a bigger monitor and some skill at kgPanels.

If he made this available for download as an addon pack ( hint hint? ;D ) I would be all over it.

The Queue: Why are warriors so awesome? {WoW}

Jan 11th 2010 7:17PM Hey,

I have two questions that are unrelated to each other.

First off, how does stealing raid IDs work? Some guildies downed FL-10 earlier this week and the raid leader from that run got together some people to do Ignis (the weekly) a few days later. In the mean time, one of the original raiders had left the guild and done Ignis himself, and stolen the ID. How exactly does this work / what's the actual process of the "theft?"

Secondly, I have a question related to the dungeon finder. I have been considering queueing specifically for the Heroic Frozen Halls 5-mans, as I need gear from them. If someone is queued for specific dungeons, can those queued for a random dungeon be put in the same group? E.g., if I queue for H-PoS and four others queue randomly, can we be put in a group for H-PoS together? I'm thinking no, as it seems like the kind of thing that would be tricky to work out for Blizzard, but if it did work like that it would make sense.

Thanks!
