Breakfast Topic: Your random dungeon experiences {WoW}

Dec 14th 2009 8:07AM Running a regular UK the other day, through the randomizer. My husband is a tank, I'm playing a mage, so I get plenty of chances to sit back and criticize. The healer (a priest) was just doing Flash Heals the whole way through, nothing else. And they were weak. I kept saying to my husband how bad this healer was, how he needed to do better heals, and even said on phase 2 of Ingvar "We really need big heals here". We manage to scrape through, even though on attempt 2, the tank and healer die right at the end, the remaining dps manage to kill him. Then the priest says the immortal line:

"LOL guyz I was healing as shadow lol"

Guess who promptly went on my ignore list!

Breakfast Topic: Which NPCs cause a double take? {WoW}

Sep 7th 2009 9:00AM The engineering trainers in Thrallmar/Honor Hold.

Thrallmar is Zebig
Honor Hold is Lebowski

Blizzard to focus on battlegrounds more {WoW}

Jul 29th 2009 8:07PM I personally think there should be 2 streams of equal gear, named and itemized for appropriate usage. That way, people who only want to do arenas can have all the best Hateful/Deady/Furious etc 'Arena Gladiator' and then have a set for those who like Battlegrounds, and people can mix and match as they see fit. Forcing people who like PvP, but hate/can't get a team for Arenas into one structure isn't always fair.

Shadowburn BG down for emergency maintenance {WoW}

May 4th 2009 2:00PM I play on Azshara, and finally decided this morning to roll the priest I've been thinking about for a while. Couldn't even load into the game on it. I'm not the whiny type though, I'd rather they took the time they needed to get the server fixed, rather than waiting til tomorrow, and suffering this horrendous lag.

Arthas: Rise of the Lich King giveaway {WoW}

Apr 14th 2009 7:05AM Was considering buying this today, maybe I'll wait a few days :P

Alternatives to WoWJutsu {WoW}

Feb 6th 2009 12:04PM After our guild pushing for rank 3 on the server, and finally downing Malygos-25 last night, we find ourselves ranked 4th, because a person in a guild that has not yet cleared Naxx-10 or 25 pugged Maly and got loot. We've tried emailing WoWJutsu, and of course, it goes ignored.

There's just too many different factors in loot now that trying to rank just by having it is entirely pointless.

The Queue: Patch 3.0.8 is here! {WoW}

Jan 20th 2009 1:31PM Is the change to old instances part of 3.0.8? In reference to:

http://www.wowinsider.com/2008/12/12/blizzard-opens-up-old-instances-to-soloers-changes-quest-items/

just wondering, as our guild likes to run MC, but don't have enough quintessences to go around usually. I've been scouring the patch notes, and can't find anything at this time.

The Azeroth Ethicist: Why (or why not) to take a player {WoW}

Dec 27th 2008 7:03AM As my friend and I are a tank and healer combo, ultimately we decide which dps comes. Some days we end up with all clothies, and he doesn't get much, so the next day, to compensate, I'll agree to take as few clothies as we can get away with. It works out well for both of us.

By being able to post into /2 or /4, saying LF3M DPS, and getting inundated with whispers usually, we decide the party make-up together, based on where we're going, and which classes would be better for that instance. Our server suffers a distinct shortage of tanks and healers, so generally people co-operate in the name of getting the run done, and I very rarely get people making demands. I have very little patience for whiners and crybabies, however, and if people start making a big deal, we casually remind them there is no shortage of DPS on the server, which usually keeps them quiet.

While it's not always possible, the only way to effectively solve the issue of loot whores, is to just run as a guild/guildmates friends group. You learn a lot about your fellow guild members too this way, and quickly find out which members' maturity leaves a lot to be desired.
