25-man gear should not be better than 10-man gear {WoW}

Apr 1st 2009 12:48PM About the only way that I would run 10 and 25 mans if they had the same iLevel gear would be if they were actually different instance, or if there was something I really really wanted badly, and didn't have the DKP to buy it in my guild or something stupid like that, but as far as replay value, with 10 and 25 mans, if they continue to make the 10 and 25 mans the exact same instance, I do not know how much longer I will be playing, it seems like get geared up get some achievements and then I am bored...

Please Blizzard, Please make 10 and 25 mans different, if its not bad enough when your guild has a raids on farm status, it only makes things worse when the 10 and 25 mans are exactly the same.

Breakfast Topic: Pride in your Achievements {WoW}

Feb 26th 2009 3:01PM Right now Sarth + 3 Drakes is what I am most proud of, but as far as looking forward, I think I will be most proud of the Master Fisherman acheivement with the reward of "Salty Chesticles" being my name.

Forum post of the day: Great idea, poor implementation {WoW}

Feb 13th 2009 1:53PM I understand that you are paying for a game, and the ability to play said game, but at the same time, I along with millions of other people pay for the game as well so don't think you are special...

Also take into consideration the real marketplace as you so kindly brought up...

I pay Microsoft for their product, I can make suggestions, but that is all they are, suggestions they can choose to try and work to integrate my suggestions, or they can do their own thing...

If Blizzard was to take every whiny little bitches suggestions as to what would make the game better, there would be no end.

Buff this class, nerf that class, they have to do what they have to do, if they decide to give us more features in the game that is cool, but you are by no means entitled to them developing content to suit your needs, they have developed a product, and you have paid for it...

Your subscription allows you to continue playing the game, but you have already paid for the content itself...

If you want something changed, by all means feel free to ask, but don't just whine and complain when they make a change that is a fair compromise from the current situation to your "ideal" situation of free respecs and blizzard handing out gold for you breathing and choosing a hybrid class.

Paying for respecs is the price you pay for the added versatility get over it!!! If a group is looking for a tank, I can't just spend 50 g and respec for it, I am SoL, if they are looking for a healer, I am SoL. You have the opportunity should you or the rest of the group wish to shell out the gold for it, to fill in anywhere needed, whereas I am pigeon holed into only DPSing, if they don't need a DPS i don't get an invite, so it is very hard for me to feel any sympathy for you... My choice is reroll or find a group that needs DPS, beleive me, if I could drop 50 g to fill the groups needs, you better beleive that I would, 50 g is a small price to pay for such a huge advantage over pure classes, Hybrids have it good in that they have that versatility, and in wrath 50 g should really be the least of your worries, when i know people that are making 25 k a week just farming herbs...

Forum post of the day: Great idea, poor implementation {WoW}

Feb 13th 2009 12:55PM You whine, You Bitch, You Moan, You Complain that respeccing is too expensive, Blizzard throws you a bone, and you spit in their face...


Be thankful that they are even considering putting dual specs in at all, I know I am, I am DPS, and as such it isn't such a huge inconvenience, but like the idea of having a Raiding and PVP spec, and as for those people leveling, I had to pay for respecs leveling, as did everyone else, why shouldn't you? Also that is the price you pay for being a hybrid class, you get the utility of being able to change what you do whether it be tank, DPS, heals, that gives you a huge advantage over pure DPS in that you can adapt to the situation and what is needed, all that is required is that you pay ingame gold that is ridiculously easy to get, and caps at 50g(which you can easily make in under a half an hours...)


Ready Check: Guide to Naxxramas (Thaddius) {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2009 12:00PM and rightfully so, how hard is it for people to figure out right and left? But somehow, someway someone always does, for those people there are a couple of things that can be helpful, first of which is DBM (Deadly Boss Mods) pops up in Giant Blue Letters when your polarity changes, the second addon was written specifically for the thaddius fight, and is called Thadius Helper, if you still fail at Thaddius... I hate to say it but you should probabaly just uninstall wow

Mage solos Naxxramas Military Quarter {WoW}

Jan 5th 2009 6:17PM Besides, how am I supposed to make it all the way back out of the instance before a wipe without spell stealing bone armor? (Yes, I have done it...)

Mage solos Naxxramas Military Quarter {WoW}

Jan 5th 2009 11:58AM Why didn't they change Gruuls then?

This is ridiculous, my guild had me on spellsteal detail, not so i could solo the content, or just to protect myself, but its a waste of a ridiculous amount of effort if you guys have to DPS through the bone armor, I was spellstealing it to make all of our lives easier.

This is ridiculous, I understand that it may have been a bit over powered, but are they really going to make us dps through the 1,000,000 + points of damage that the bone armor protects from? Only to have them spam bone armor again when we DPS through it?

Even when spamming Spellsteal some of the mobs still manage to have bone armor up

Is there another way to dispel the armor?

WoW Insider's Loot-idays: Day two {WoW}

The many benefits of being a high-level Cook {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 11:47PM Cooking is great cheap way to add stats especially for those not hit capped, need more stamina or whatever stats you may be missing, also being able to use rats, and other critters and Non Combat Pets is kinda cool. Easy way to ensure that you are at the top of your game, I often found that many people forget that there are other things that you can bring to a raid besides a flask. Such as food buffs or scrolls.

Death Knight's Death Grip as crowd control {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 1:54PM As a mage there is nothing I hate more than being chain Death Gripped. Try to run away Death Grip, try cast Death Grip, try to eat and drink Death Grip, try to cry in a corner cuz i keep getting pwned by DKs Death Grip.

Although the worst I have seen was what they did to my tankadin friend Death Gripping him in circles around the group of 5 of them, and stunning him. I couldn't help but laugh until it came to be my turn...
