Kaplan on being the "Cruise Director of Azeroth" at GDC '09 {WoW}

Mar 28th 2009 1:59PM I love the Q&A section where someone asked him about their testing process. His answer was basically "We don't have a formal process --"

A big NO SHIT! came to mind and this really tells us exactly why there's so many issues on patch days.

Why healing meters suck {WoW}

Overhealing is not something to worry about.
If you're not running out of mana in fights, it doesn't matter how much overhealing you do. Period. Nada. Not a thing to worry about.

Someone with a clue! I see a lot of non-healers and a lot of clueless people here on this topic. First, recount shows effective healing and even has an over heal category if you're worried about it. Treason said it best though. Over healing doesn't mean a thing if you don't run out of mana. Anyone complaining about over healing when no healers are running out of mana should just leave the topic to people who know what they are talking about. Second, people that think a MT healer should ONLY heal the MT are retarded at best. As a Druid, if I'm assigned MT heals that means HoT up the MT and raid heal. As long as you know you have enough mana to never let the MT die it's very helpful.
Healing meters show numbers. Same as damage meters. You need to understand the numbers to make them useful. The people complaining about the healing meters are the healers with slow reflexes and those who chose poor gear itemization and can't sustain healing throughout a long fight. If you're assigned 3-5 people to heal and your sitting on 80% mana and ONLY healing those 3-5 people, don't expect to be high on the meters or even considered a good healer. YOU know your character/gear better than the person giving out healing assignments so as long as you can cover your assignment, heal as much as possible.

WoW Moviewatch: The Craft of War: BLIND {WoW}

Dec 26th 2008 12:18PM Movie: A+
Music: F- complete fail.

Why do people ALWAYS have to put some crappy music in their films? I couldn't even finish the entire movie without muting the sound.

Nov 19th 2008 5:38PM If you're constantly out of energy as Mutilate spec then you have no clue how to play mutilate and should stay with the mind numbing and boring combat spec. Mobs die to fast for combat to shine while leveling except when you pop flurry + killing spree
