Breakfast Topic: Has 4.0.1 brought you back to WoW? {WoW}

Oct 16th 2010 11:16AM It brought me back to tame pets, explore rotations, try out new abilities.

Schedule's pretty tight so don't know how long I'll be back...though it frees up a bit right around mid-December....:)

Scattered Shots: Internal review {WoW}

Aug 9th 2010 1:57PM At level 71 you should have MD and be able to MD to your pet. Once I got MD, I never (okay rarely) pulled aggro off my pet as long as I MD to him.

Didn't even matter the pet, though Tenacity allowed me to pull more mobs.

15 Minutes of Fame: Cory Doctorow on gold farming, part 2 {WoW}

Aug 4th 2010 4:15PM Great interview, on here and massively.

Will definitely check him out.

Breakfast Topic: Tank anxiety {WoW}

Aug 3rd 2010 10:43AM I fight the anxiety by doing a lot of research.

After having several failed runs as a bear tank in TBC, I took a break, read a lot, then when I had a decent set of gear, started practicing in WOTLK with pulling multiple mobs, taking on random elites, etc. Then I ran some normals, and then heroics.

The best strategy for newbie tanking, imo, is to really know the instance.

As a general rule, I'll try and keep all the mobs on me, but if a DPS goes AOE crazy and dies, I don't sweat it. If the healer dies, my problem.

My general rules: if the healer dies, its the tank's fault; if the tank dies, it's the healer's fault; and if the dps dies, it's their own fault.

So, my advice, do some research: on your class, on the instance, etc.

The Queue: Dendrophilia {WoW}

Jul 30th 2010 1:21PM I've been lvling some alts.

Now on my warrior, tackling Orange lvl quests is pretty damn fast, but on my mage, I have to drink/evocate after about 2 fights.

So is it faster to tackle Orange lvl quests on a mana using class or should I stick with Green-Yellow because there is less down time?

Encrypted Text: Cataclysm's effect on iconic rogue abilities {WoW}

Jul 14th 2010 7:18AM Don't know much about theorycrafting.

But totally curious to see what the PvP specs look like now with the Mutilate/Preparation build gone (since Prep. is so far up the Subtlety Tree).

Shifting Perspectives: Soloing as a balance druid, page 2 {WoW}

Jun 26th 2010 6:03PM Tyler,

You mentioned the Dragonblight elites, but one I'd like to see you try is the Riders of Frost, Blood, and Unholy in Icecrown. I managed to solo them with my hunter (Unholy was the hardest) but have yet to try on my boomkin.

The Light and How to Swing It: Gearing a new level 80 ret paladin, part 3 {WoW}

Jun 23rd 2010 3:50PM So, since their is only 5 pieces for Tier 9, if you choose the Triumph helm and shoulders over the tier pieces you are breaking the 4 piece bonus.

Are the Triumph pieces so much better that it is worth losing the 4 piece bonus? Arguably when you start replacing T9 with the Frost rewards, but Triumph rewards?

The Art of War(craft): The battlegrounds as a bridge between content {WoW}

May 28th 2010 12:01AM My only complaint with BGs is that people just don't bother to read even the basic strategies.

Its so frustrating to be in a battleground where you just get stomped on and spam, "Fight at the Flag, fight at the flag."

When I get a good game and lose, or a good game and win, I love BGs.
