The Light and How to Swing It: Exploring the ramifications of the 4.2 Holy Shield change {WoW}

Jun 3rd 2011 4:12PM Too many buttons to push.

And yes I'll echo the dislike of becoming a 3 point rogue. There just is something fundamentally wrong with the way tankadins feel to play and adding another button really isn't going to solve that now.

Ol' Grumpy's guide to outdated content and you {WoW}

May 25th 2011 9:50PM I'm so glad this raid tier is being nerfed. For our guild, it means we'll be able to offer raiding again. Simply put we suck, we haven't been able to progress and that has meant our players have stopped wanting to play. Yes we're bads - get over it. But we like to play, we don't have the time or players who can spend all night learning one encounter so we wipe 5 times and go to bed and read a book - and we lose players some gone forever.

IMO Blizz waited way too long before nerfing this content. The elite raiders had long finished the normal modes and delaying this nerf just meant more people walked away from a game that was just too hard for them to enjoy

Addon Spotlight: Quoth the Raven, Grab Bag 4 {WoW}

Apr 28th 2011 9:40PM Hi Mat

Any chance you guys could organise a one line index for the addons you've highlighted.

Eg the name of the addon, a link to the column and a five word description that gives you an idea of what it does.

Maybe even grouped by type of function.

Google site search helps but sometimes I can't even remember the name of the addon just that it was something to do with chat.

Patch 4.1 PTR: New PvE-to-PvP currency conversion {WoW}

Apr 7th 2011 9:47PM Sounds like they are desperate to get PVE players to do some PVP. This just makes it easier to get gear so the death isn't quite so quick when the real PVP player attacks.

Of course what this also means is that Blizz thinks not enough people are playing PVP - which from what I've seen is true - maybe it just isn't as much fun?

The OverAchiever: Guide to Lunar Festival 2011, page 2 {WoW}

Jan 24th 2011 12:29AM This used to be a good source of reputation for the alliance/horde. But it does not seem to reward Gilneas reputation at all for the alliance. Is this a bug or intended?

The OverAchiever: Cataclysm achievements FAQ {WoW}

Nov 18th 2010 7:32PM "Keep in mind that you don't have to have both Bloodsail and Cartel reputations at the same time at honored respectively at exalted levels."


NO ... Must. Have. All. Reputation. Bars. At. Maximum.

Insane in the Membrane no longer requires Shen'dralar reputation in Cataclysm {WoW}

Nov 10th 2010 5:24PM "Booty Bay Bruisers will now provide reputation up through Exalted"

So does that mean I can get that reputation bar all the way as well? Previously the only way to get completed exalted was to kill one mob in the badlands for 1 rep per kill ie 21000 kills (minus whatever it is for handing in the pirate quest).

Encrypted Text: Answers to your pre-Cataclysm rogue questions {WoW}

Nov 3rd 2010 4:34PM You can't get Deadly momentum from the assassination tree to level!!!!!

Talent don't work like that any more. Maybe you should read wowinsider to get up to date.

Your other points are fine and if you are advising a beginning player then please don't advise them to do anything other than combat because the other trees take quite some time to learn the nuances that provide high damage. Combat is simple and straightforward to learn and for a beginning player learning everything about the game having a relatively simple class mechanic is a boon.

The Queue: Caturday {WoW}

Sep 6th 2010 5:27PM Hiya. A question about bank space. Has there been any mention of some storage for old armour sets?

I have my soulforge set and T1 which I keep because I can't bear to throw them away. But bank space gets tight as you collect gear sets. When you add in storing the fish that got me salty and other important items ...
