Two Bosses Enter: Mannoroth vs. Lord Godfrey {WoW}

Apr 2nd 2012 6:55PM Godfery can still pinch this.

With Tyrande's help, Valo'then wont be an issue. Meanwhile in the main bout, Illidan's glaives to the face of Mannoroth keep his attention, allwoing Godfery to get off the odd pistol barrage. Mannoroth wont even realise "Tex" Godfery is even there until he cops a sword to the guts.

This is where things get tough.

Mannoroth is now annoyed at himself for FF'ing Illidan. Godfery pops his ghouls and leads him a merry dance. Godfery is smart enough to wait till after the fel fire has cleared a bit to pop his pistol barrage then summon a fresh lot oh ghouls. Meanwhile Illidan is still applying judicious amounts of Glaive to Face pain. Godfery makes use of Tyrande's buffs when possible.

Finally Manaroth becomes bored with the game and buggers off, Godfery Hearths back to Shadowfang just in time for the next unfortunatle matched group of ilevel 33 randoms to attempt him in his cellar.

Mists of Pandaria: Battlegrounds preview {WoW}

Mar 19th 2012 5:04AM Temple of (Benedictus voice) power sounds like the hold the fang bg in rift. Exactly the same in fact. Can get one sided when you team can push up near the gy and farm kills. It was fun though

Is it time to kill daily quests? {WoW}

Mar 15th 2012 9:26PM I believe repeatable dailes were in vanilla but they didn't amount to anything. (Old Wildhammer Dalies) Possibliy the wintersaber ones to but I may be wrong there.

I have never been a fan of daily quests. Ever. I did Shatari skyguard and Ogrila and got halfway through the netherwing ones and that was ok. I like popping out my ray still!

Quel'dannis killed it for me. I wasnt up with teh content then and had better thhings to do. I still got my title by the end of it but it felt compulsary.

Sons of Hodir. Compulsary.
Therazane. Compulsary.

Took inscription to avoid the grind!

Personally I would rather something encoraging guild run to make guilds more meaningful again. Getting nostalgic here but I loved doing guild runs in vanilla for nature res gear, gearing up newbies and the ever elusive UBRS run for the carapace. Felt more fun I suppose. Perhaps a system when you earn points for doing guild runs that you can spend on valor like gear and a cash reward? Or at least offer some alternative.

Transmogrify your character into a dark ranger, take 1 {WoW}

Mar 1st 2012 8:40PM Im still miffed I cant used the scarlet set I packratted for my warrior...

Good look here though, I really like these transmorg articles.

5 ways to fail at Battlegrounds {WoW}

Feb 29th 2012 8:35PM Number 2 is my pet hate. I used to play as a holy pally alot and these days its Disc Priest. 5 of us will take for example, LM. Ill say "one of you stay here, we can hold off until resseres relieve. 4 people ride off.

This leaves me with 2 optioins.

Ride of with the group and let the opposing faction recap, wich results in "Waly, you said you were going to D at LM you suck"

Conversely I remain and get smashed by 1,370,000 Allies and loose anyway.

1 DPS or even better a prot, blood or feral to hang around and we hold it for the whole game. I want my bonus honor and conquest points TYVM.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Keep yourself alive {WoW}

Feb 26th 2012 9:54PM 1) Damn you and you ass-kandy Rossi. You had me back in BWL the other day to get the bloody think for my pally!

2) Being in BWL reminded me of the firemaw fight (i think) where you had to dip out of LoS to drop the flame buffet. DPS had god forbid, use a pot or bandage cause there was a standing order from myself and the other healing leader not heal the DPS. We even booted people from the raid and would take an undergeared but more consumate raider who had a stack of bandages and pots for the fight. We even booted a healer once for going OOM and causing a wipe cause he was healing his mate in the DPS. They really have it easy these days the DPS. Here's hoping that bandaging becomes more commonplace in raids. It kept the DPSon their toes and made smarter players.

Breakfast Topic: What was your first world drop epic? {WoW}

Feb 26th 2012 9:35PM I got the same. Had an AH junkie friend of mine with me and he was pissed he lost the roll. Kept telling me Id replace it in a couple of levels (I was 49 at the time in searing gorge). He was right, but I had a purple!

Breakfast Topic: Are You Ready for Some Football? {WoW}

Feb 9th 2010 4:58PM I shall call you stitch-face

Ensidia temporarily banned for exploits {WoW}

Feb 4th 2010 4:56PM Blizz really need to take a look how they deal with this. Sure it was nice to have an encounter kept under wraps, but we all know how non-thurough blizzards internal testing is......

IF what Ensidia say is true and the rogues use the bombs in their rotation.... That's just epic fail on Blizzards part.

Besides most of of who raid have used and exploit from time to time. Gonna take our Saurfang kills from the first week away because we could use one tank? Gonna take away Malchezaar kills pre the safe spots being removed? From memory you could staid in a certain spot and not have to dance with Heigan in Naxx 40man. Use of the Luffa early on in the piece on Mores? How many other fights are made trivial by clever use of class mechanics or items.

This is only an issue because its a world first.

Growing Pains: How to approach gearing up your tank {WoW}

Jan 31st 2010 8:08PM NO we are not broken Rossi, but its disheartening to try Rotface for 3 weeks wtih 2 warrior tanks, only to two shot it when our Bear came back from his break.

Not broken no, but for that fight as the ooze tank....../facepalm!

As for our DPS, we dropped Fester with 2 warrior tanks. is its JUST enough atm.
