Lichborne: Demystifying Death Grip {WoW}

Jun 15th 2010 4:28PM I have both a Pally and Druid level 80 tank. My question to any tanks out there that are having problems with casters... Do any of you remember how to LoS pull?

I've been called all sorts of names for taking a few extra seconds to LoS pull the caster mobs in front of the final boss in UP. I have a serious problem just rushing into any situation (even one that's trivial because of gear). It must just be me and the countless hours I spent lining up LoS pulls in BC instances.

Barack Obama's Beach Reading List {Politics Daily}

Aug 25th 2009 1:26PM Should we really care what Obama is reading on his vacation? REALLY? We as American citizens need to quit paying attention to this tripe and finally start dealing with the issues.

1. We must understand that our Rights while given to us freely still come with responsibility. We have three unalienable rights... Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Are they really unalienable? What right do I have to live when someone else somewhere is dying of cancer? What right to liberty do I have over a poor 5 year old in North Korea. The only truely unalienable right I have is that of the pursuit of happiness. No one can take that away from me or any other person regardless of sex, race, religion or nationality.

2. Our government should not be legislating on our economy. If we want a strong economy we need to do what our government so far has been uncapable of doing... get out of debt. How can we base our economy on make believe money? Credit will only sink this economy further into the toilet. We must also chose to be educated consumers. Read the fine print people.

2. Oh and why do we continue to get taxed for everything? Simply to help pay the governments bills and they keep spending.

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!
Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
Taxes drove me
to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What in the hell happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'
And I still have to 'press 1' for English!?

Thanks to Mr. Charley Reese for the poem and list of taxes.


3. Why do 545 people have so much control over 300,000,000 American citizens? This was a government by the people for the people but has become something else entirely. Truth be told... we need to get out from behind our televisions with 300 channels still with nothing on and learn what it takes for us to get involved. First get involved with local issues. Those local issues will spread and we'll find that if enough local issues get solved national issues will follow.

4. We must finally practice what we preach. We try to teach our children right from wrong yet in our society it's okay to grey the issue... Why? Right is right, and wrong is wrong.

If we can do these things then I believe we can fianlly get this country back on track.

How the "Summon Memory" fight in the Trial of the Champion should have been done {WoW}

Aug 12th 2009 10:50AM I'll probably get greyed out for this but... As it is right now is fine. She isn't the main boss in or the hardest boss of the ToC. She's an instance boss not a raid boss. Had they made her the final boss of a raid then fine take the time to individualize every memory. As it is now you are all asking Blizz to take the time and effort to individualize what 200 plus possible bosses? Maybe they only chose say 40 possible bosses out of all the possible bosses we've faced. Does any of you understand the complexity of the coding involved with that. And why do that for an instance boss. Sounds like your expectations were to high for the outcome given. Is that Blizz's fault? Yes partly, they hinted that this would happen but didn't give us any detail that she would only be in the 5 man. Had we heard that we all could have easily seen that this wasn't going to be some epic incounter for the ages. Is part of this our fault? Sure, by now we know what to expect out of Blizz. Is Paletress summoning a random "EPIC" memory in Blizzards regular MO? I have to say NOPE.

Solution sought for Heroic Strike/Maul {WoW}

Jul 24th 2009 10:15AM Are you kidding me. Me we as well just make every single ability automatic! Heck let's just Bot the whole game and sit back and watch. Just automatically cast Revenge every time it Procs. Mangle... oh heck it's such an annoying button to push I want that one autocast too. I mean come on really. These abilities have timers for a reason, and with every toon I've ever played (most of the classes) they have "annoying" abilities, something that just has a hard time fitting into a rotation or an ability that's spammed. Let's just take em all away and turn this game into a spectator sport rather than actually interacting to it.

GLAAD fights homophobia in online communities like WoW {WoW}

Jul 21st 2009 12:47PM Tell you what... when this community finally starts respecting others rights instead of squaking about theirs we'll talk. I live in Utah and we are having a big issue with this stuff. There were to men that decided it would be a good idea to grope and fondle each other in public. When they got in trouble for it they immediately cried discrimination. My wife and I would never think of doing anything like this in public out of respect to those around us. Respect is not freely given it is earned. You want my respect then show me you deserve it. PERIOD!

New Tauren cat forms revealed {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2009 5:31PM I really like these forms it makes you look like your morphing into some fantasy cat. Oh wait this is a fantasy game. Sure the form may be based off a lion but whose to say this particular species of cat they've created doesn't have bearded females? ;)

As to the reasons behind why they've only given us so much costumization.... Every change we make to a toon has line upon line of code associated with it. They equals time and money. Way more time to give you what you want when their are just as many people clamoring for changes to their favorite class. Money in that all these changes take memory and memory costs money. As that memory has dropped in price over the years we've seen alot more customization in WoW.

Maybe someday they'll be able to allow us to make the forms look anyway they want. Beard or no beard, different eyes, etc. But for now this is a huge leap in the right direction!

Patch 3.2 details released {WoW}

May 22nd 2009 3:46PM I thought the very same thing until the Argent Tournie came out. I'm really liking the way that mounted combat is shaping up. I hope that they continue to expand upon it. I would really like to see the integration of a limited number of our toons abilities to the Vehicle bars. Pallies riding around hitting things with Judgements or exorcism, Rogues and Fan of Knives, Mages and Frost Bolts, etc. This would really add some intrigue to mounted combat.

The Azeroth Ethicist: Special I.W.I.N. edition, part 2 {WoW}

May 5th 2009 4:13PM Yes the Blizz employee screwed up!!! Yes I'm sure he had some sort of new hole ripping experience. But come on guys really. It's okay for this group of players to trounce around and muddy up the waters more? They cheated plain and simple. I participate in sport s on a regular basis, if a person walked in with a pair of shoes that made him perform a crapp ton better than what he would had he not been wearing them then where's the sport in that? Why play with this individual at all. Whether it's sad or not is not the question. There are players that pride themselves on hard work and this is their "sport" of choice. They feel that those achievements and the loot are their rewards for their efforts and those were taken from him. We live in a cause and effect world. Karatechop and his lot cheated and they are being punished for it. There is nothing else to be said about it.

15 Minutes of Fame: First Responders on the WoW scene {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 1:08AM Hey AFNoob... If you actaully had to do what we do and see some of the crapp we see you wouldn't have to ask that question. It takes a very special person to be successful at any of these positions. We deal with some of the more base behaviors and see really gruesome sites on a daily basis. I for one would love to challenge you to to take that 12 month program and see how you would actually do. Until then respect the men and women that sacrifice their sanity and their lives in your behalf.
