Cataclysm novel slated for August, 2010 {WoW}

Nov 6th 2009 3:09PM Yes, with a name like Asswipe I'm totally going to take your opinion more seriously.

Breakfast Topic: The great Battle.net merge {WoW}

Oct 13th 2009 11:54AM Yes, because no hacker can get into your computer and crawl it for passwords.

Worst Password Advice EVAR.

If you want to keep your account safe and are worried:
1. Make a password at minimum 8 character length
2. Make the password nonsense (non-words) with symbols and letters
3. Do NOT store it anywhere on your computer
4. Get an authenticator

Encrypted Text: The Rogue Q&A in review {WoW}

Aug 12th 2009 4:17PM I wasn't so much disapointed by the Q&A, but more underwhelmed. There wasn't really anything that Blizz told us that we didn't already know.

What I see a general lack of comments on, however, is the rogue's functional utility overall. We're great DPS, I love that! I love being up there in raids and having my function as Interrupt and Damage. But two of the things that made up part of being a rogue and stood out to me while leveling for a very long time (quests, money making, strategy, and eventually instances) were Lockpicking and CC. I know CC has, in many ways, fallen by the wayside of the new instance layouts and the zerg philosophy... but Boxes and Lockpicking just kinda went Poof. Yes, we still have people opening boxes in the major cities, and there is still a drop rate, but it's gone down considerably that I have seen. Even running old content to work on my Loremaster gives out way way less. It's almost like they decided they weren't necessary for rogues anymore after they took making your own poisions away.

It was one of our little gimicks... We were rogues, thieves, we'd sneak around and pick open boxes and doors and do good damage. Now we don't do that and we are DAMAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PVE and PVP. DAMAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It just feels to me like we've lost something, and I don't really see it being addressed until they say "We've taken the chests out of the instances in Outland because they were being exploited." or "There are no chests in Northrend."

Maybe it's just me. I dunno.

Preparing for BlizzCon: Getting there by air {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2009 12:46PM Question about arriving and distribution of badges:

I recall reading about long lines to get the badges prior to Blizzcon last year, but can't remember if it was day of or day before? Do we have an idea when they'll be passed out so we know to arrive on Thursday or Wednesday?

Jun 19th 2009 6:20PM Should we ask someone to nerf the 405?

Jun 11th 2009 7:12PM No, you're thinking of Torg. King Torg eats the babies. Easy mistake though! :)

Officers' Quarters: Surviving summer {WoW}

Jun 8th 2009 5:43PM How kind of you.

Except, some of us work for a living and don't get summers off. "Summer" is exactly the same as every other month of the year for me, except some of my employees take trips with their family and there is more work for the rest of us to go around.

Perhaps if you opened up your scope of who plays the game, rather than trying to talk down to those of us who don't have the luxury of having a few months free and still want to be able to unwind from our daily lives with the game that we enjoy.

Encrypted Text: Rogue tips for raiding Ulduar, part 3 {WoW}

Jun 4th 2009 5:40PM Regarding hit boxes and where you can stand behind a boss, a while back I was playing with a hunter alt while bored, and I found I wanted to better know how far away I could be for my shots. I looked and eventually downloaded UrbinRange and since then it's become invaluable on my rogue!

It displays for me when I'm in melee range (default color is green) and when I move to Ranged (default color is blue.) On some bosses, the hit box is so large, but you see all the melee crunched up around their heels and then unable to run out and avoid any effect that may be coming. It makes fights like Razorscale less about guesswork and more precision, because if there is flame I can easily see and position myself without having the trial and error of "Out of Range"ing while I try and find my sweet spot.

The Queue: Sea shanty edition {WoW}

Jan 29th 2009 4:48PM Back in the old country, Rogues got taken into the instances for CC but a lot of that has been blown away with the amount of AOE that the other classes are doing now with most of the instances (even on H) being a quick run through. The OTHER reason Rogues were brought in was for opening chests that were in the instances, but I haven't seen a single one in a Northrend instance, locked or otherwise. They were in the old country as well as Outland... Has anyone else seen any? Any reason why they'd be left out?
