Best of November 2009 {WoW}

Dec 31st 2009 12:25AM I think it's less about the pet and more that lots of folks already farmed enough Triumph badges for their full T9 and now they just do one random per day for the Frost badges.

Drama Mamas: Mismatched ambitions in the Dungeon Finder {WoW}

Dec 25th 2009 4:30PM H CoS is the only non-ICC heroic where sub-par DPS annoys me a bit, and it is because of the extra badge. I'm not going to vote to kick people over it, though - I can carry one low DPSer to a bronze drake without a problem. My mage can pump out 5k DPS on a single-target fight, so as long as the tank can keep up with my threat output and the healer can keep him alive, I'm happy.

I feel this way because when I was a new 80 (I took a few weeks longer than everyone else after Wrath came out), a nice guild group ran me through tons of heroics, let me take me all the gear that they already had, and basically geared me for Naxx out of the kindness of their hearts (or maybe they just needed a mage to give them free water, IDK). One of them even enchanted some of my gear for free. I was shocked and amazed.

On the flip side of that story, I watched a warlock with a 5300 GS (mine's about 5100) drop group in H UK the other day because the tank's GS was "too low" at 3600. The tank (warrior, decent gear, good prot spec) was def-capped and knew how to tank, and once we replaced the lock with a nice moonkin (who did 2k DPS, which is more than acceptable for H UK), we went through the instance in a half-hour with no wipes. I hope the lock had fun sitting in the random queue again.

Officers' Quarters: Disposable raiders {WoW}

May 10th 2009 6:01PM If someone's going to /gquit because they were benched on a raid night after showing up late, they're not someone I want in my guild to begin with.

Real life issues come up. It happens. But why should 24 other people wait for you? Suck it up and wait until the next raid night.

Breakfast Topic: Manners {WoW}

Mar 18th 2009 12:28PM Ahh, the old "I'm a dick because it's fun" defense, the last refuge of 13-year-olds with absolutely no good reason for their terrible behavior.

The Daily Quest: Of Healing UIs, BlizzCon galleries and Glory of the Raider The Movie {WoW}

Mar 4th 2009 1:30PM I just wanted to hop in and bitch and moan a little bit since nobody else has gotten around to it yet.

WoW botter tells all part 2 {WoW}

Feb 17th 2009 7:40PM I foresee the comments here being filled with nerdrage.

I totally sympathize with the guy - leveling is the most boring experience ever once you've done it with 1-2 toons.

A plea against vehicle combat {WoW}

Feb 17th 2009 6:26PM I've done Oculus once on heroic for both achievements - it was more than enough for me. I went into EoE once with my friend's guild, did the fight, and determined that I will never do it again.

I don't give a crap if a bunch of self-righteous internet tough guys want to tell me to "QQ moar" - In my opinion, vehicle combat in PvE is not fun and not interesting. Leave it for quests I can opt not to do, or as an option for PvP combat. (I do think it makes PvP more interesting.)

The Queue: Stripes edition {WoW}

Feb 13th 2009 10:12PM Please don't speak for all Americans, I certainly don't feel like I'm better than anyone - I actually have a passport and I've been to countries further away than Canada, unlike 70%-ish of the population.

Patriotism is a fine word, acting like a tool and using it as an excuse is retarded.

Breakfast topic: When real life is greater than WoW {WoW}

Jan 20th 2009 12:05PM Wow, thanks for the springboard for every bitchy, butthurt right-winger who reads this blog. We needed to hear them going off about their nonsense again, really we did.

Fatal1ty talks WoW at CES {WoW}

Jan 12th 2009 3:14PM Should I know (or care) who this guy is?
