All the World's A Stage: So Sue me {WoW}

Jan 16th 2011 9:23PM I have a question. I've tried to RP in WoW before but I've never really cared about the lore for WoW so I couldn't get into it. But I'm looking to try RPing again in SWTOR with the Trooper class.

Wolten is a self-loathing extreme optimist. He thinks everything ends with a happy ending, and he hates it. Everything seems to just come naturally to him, and he despises himself all the more because of it. He tried to commit suicide several times in the past, and each time he failed gloriously.

Eventually, he decides to join the military. Hopefully, something there would kill him. He always volunteers for the most dangerous missions he can. And he always despicably succeeds. Every time he is promoted he finds himself happy that the his new rank could lead to his death, while at the same time, angry he made it that far.

He's the kind of guy that's always making enemies wherever he goes. Its not that he's a terrible, evil guy either. He's just wishing that someday his bad decisions will come back and bite him in the a**, or better yet, kill him.

If he has to inform some dead soldier's wife of her beloved husband's demise, he does so bluntly, saying something like "Your husband died on the field of battle, the lucky b**tard. He's in a better place now, and don't you worry; you'll be able to take care of the children just fine without him. Trust me, things'll work out in the end. They always f**king do."

*** Is that too Mary Sue-ish? I'm not sure because obviously to make the character work, he would have to be super strong/lucky to survive everything...

Arcane Brilliance: News and notes for mages from PTR patch 4.0.6 {WoW}

Jan 15th 2011 8:04PM @UNV

Did you really read my post? I said that I was fine with a 1k difference. I also said that the other two hunter specs were getting buffs to bring them closer to their top spec. I was just saying with my post that I think Frost and definitely Arcane need buffs to bring them closer to Fire. They dont have to be "10 dps" away, but shouldn't be 9k apart.

If fact, I'm pretty sure there is some kind of psychologic reason you read my post as whining... but I can't think of the reason. I wasn't whining. Just saying my opinion on the state of mage specs.

Grow up, troll.

Arcane Brilliance: News and notes for mages from PTR patch 4.0.6 {WoW}

Jan 15th 2011 6:35PM What I've seen on World of Logs data (that hunter post a few days ago, and this website: http://www.stateofdps.com/index.php?raid=25N&samples=200&spec[]=dps ), the dps issues with mages still have to be addressed.

Fire is in a pretty good spot with only Hunter, Warlock, Rogue, and Shadow priest above us and only by ~1k. I would like to see spriest bumbed down a little because its a hybrid, but thats not a huge concern.

However, Frost is ~4k behind Fire. Frost needs a *buff* to Deep Freeze to up its pve damage without affecting pvp, not a 20% nerf!!

Arcane is in a terrible place right now, roughly 8k behind Fire! The only specs behind Arcane right now are the other two Hunter specs and Sub rogue. Both of those hunter specs are seeing buffs... why not Arcane? Sure, they cut the mana cost of Arcane Blast by 12% which should equate to a buff in damage due to mastery... But I doubt this buff will be anywhere close to whats needed. I predict Arcane will still be behind all the hybrids, and might even be the lowest dps spec at patch 4.06

The Queue: Day One {WoW}

Dec 7th 2010 11:33PM What happened to the touted Cataclysm Water and/or Dx11 support? I don't notice any difference with Dx11 (I activated it yesterday after reading that Queue)... The water looks better than it did in 3.x, but now it looks like a blue jello instead of actual water. Maybe its just the Durutar coast, hopefully it acts like water in the new zones.
