Tuesday Morning Post: Stay awhile and farm edition {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2011 9:06AM WTB edit button.
Diablo3 will have auction houses for both real and in-game money. And I believe you can buy in-game money with real money, but don't quote me on that.

Tuesday Morning Post: Stay awhile and farm edition {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2011 9:04AM There is no site under the joystiq banner completely dedicated to diablo, though they have all the news. There is a diablo wiki though. Google it to get the link.

Tuesday Morning Post: Stay awhile and farm edition {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2011 8:59AM Diablo 3 will have multiplayer options. And will also undoubtedly have an awesome single player mission.
However Blizz has set a very dangerous precedent by introducing a real money auction house in the game. That is followed by 3 points where blizz will deduct your real money for your auctions: a) posting charge b)sell charge c)transfer to paypal charge. In a game completely designed around working to get your next gear upgrade, they have made it into a farmer's goldmine. Secondly, they have disabled all modding. This I feel is the final blow to a vibrant community. Diablo 2's mods is what made the game stay alive for so long. Totalbiscuit made a video about this on Aug1, you can find this on youtube. And I happen to agree with him.
The game will sell, no doubt about that, and I will probably buy it too, but these 2 factors may severely impair how long I end up playing it.

Breakfast Topic: Are you a solo player? {WoW}

Jul 31st 2011 8:05AM Yes. For the most part.
None of my RL friends are into gaming so it tends to be a solo affair for me save on raid days and for the (weekly) Heroics.

The Queue: Dwarves! {WoW}

Jul 10th 2011 6:55PM Just start backing away towards a "safe" area as you approach your last kill and kite your last kill away completely. Does not always work, but better than killing 30 spiders/crocs etc.

Addon Spotlight: ThinkTank sets you up for tanking fast {WoW}

Jun 9th 2011 9:25PM You could also use Reflux, which can store addon settings to different profiles.

Reader UI of the Week: Hunting and scaling with Elleyna {WoW}

Jun 7th 2011 5:17PM I looked at your screenshot at 100% resolution, and your Unit frames are HUGE! You can get away by reducing them to 50% of their current size at the very least. You could get rid of the portraits too.
Like stated above, lose the power bars on the raid frames.
I keep recount on during combat too, and since you have the real estate for it, its no big deal.
And unless you pvp and raid in the same spec, you could lose all the melee ability buttons.
Overall, there is something very tidy about the UI, it looks attractive and unless you actually try to find whats wrong, it looks very nice at first glance.
.
On a totally non related note, I will never understand the fascination people have for the default sexymap texture. Something about it really irks me. The square texture looks so much better. :P

Reader UI of the Week: Naina's UI and comfortable clutter {WoW}

May 31st 2011 12:22PM I have found decursive an extremely redundant addon for the reason you mentioned. In fact, I have tried stuf like healbot/vuhdo etc and stopped using them. Mouseover macros take care of everything, and with modifiers takes care everything I need.

Reader UI of the Week: Naina's UI and comfortable clutter {WoW}

May 31st 2011 11:39AM That was not an HUD as far as I remember. Just some custom OuF+texture work.
To get an idea of HUDs go to

Reader UI of the Week: Naina's UI and comfortable clutter {WoW}

May 31st 2011 10:48AM Great job creating that addon Hydro, i have been looking for something like that for a while now. The question I have is does it integrate with other minimap addons(Chinchilla/sexymap etc) or compilations like TukUI/LUI.
