WoW Insider's Cataclysm Launch Giveaway: GeForce GTS 450 graphics card {WoW}

Dec 7th 2010 8:46AM I want a shiny new toy for Christmas!

Win a Lil' XT from WoW Insider {WoW}

Nov 23rd 2010 4:13PM Can't wait for 12/7!!!

Breakfast topic: Your favourite patch 3.3.3 change? {WoW}

Mar 24th 2010 8:22AM I'm just glad that I finally have my [Frosty Flying Carpet]. Who needs an albino drake when I can skim the landscape on this cool (pun intended) ride.

Official Patch 3.3.2 patch notes {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2010 4:37PM There's still a point - 2hr potions!

Official Patch 3.3.2 patch notes {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2010 4:25PM I'm just glad that the word "priest" didn't appear anywhere in this patch. I did see that PvP healers got a 10% nerf, but if you're used to healing 17k, that's only a 1.7k loss - not a huge amount.

Addon Spotlight: Vuhdo {WoW}

Feb 1st 2010 10:35AM I recently switched to this Addon and really like it. I have a two button mouse, but with the modifier keys, I can cast all my different heals and dispels with the click of a button (or two).

Breakfast Topic: Hi ho Silver, away! {WoW}

Feb 1st 2010 10:08AM As a human holy priest, nothing beats the [Albino Drake]. When I switch to Shadow, I hop on my [Onyx Netherwing Drake]. On the ground, I'll be prowling around on my [Reins of the Swift Frostsaber].

Spiritual Guidance: 4 common myths about Discipline Priests {WoW}

Jan 15th 2009 8:45AM I'm currently rocking a 28/48/0 build and I have to say, the implication that a Disc/Holy hybrid is going to constantly be running low on mana is totally false. There are so many other variables that play into your base mana and MP5. While I don't have Rapture, I do have gear, gems inscriptions and enchants that return 750 MP5 out of combat. I've run most of the heroic Northrend dungeons and never had an issue with a lack of mana. Perhaps it's my tactics:

Send a tank in with PoM and Renew (Pally's also get PW:S)
Renew on people taking low damage
Flash Heal people who are below 80%
Greater Heal people who are below 50%
PW:S, Greater Heal and Flash Heal people below 30%

Because I allow my Renew (Glyphed) to do most of the easy healing, I'm able to stay out of MP5 cooldown.

Countdown to Wrath giveaway special: Slashdance loot cards {WoW}

Nov 13th 2008 8:16AM I'm up at this ungodly hour because "the grind" beckons. I'm a teacher at a school for kids with emotional, behavioral and learning disabilities. A tough but needy crowd. Because of the often completely inappropriate behavior we encounter here, we've had to ban things like singing, rapping and dancing - a la Footloose. How cool is it that there is an item that can do just the opposite! I'd love to get my hands on it!
