They need to get that fixed asap. That place almost turned me off to healing.
I found the best way to deal with that level range was to manually queue for the lower level dungeons. You don't get the satchel, and the xp isn't quite as good, but it still worked out much faster than solo questing would have.
Jan 8th 2010 3:22AM Speaking of MIA columns any plans to rez Tank Talk?
Dec 23rd 2009 2:25PM When I first started out I didn't have a computer that would run WoW, so every weekend my friend and I would head up to his office and play there. Since the office was deserted over the weekend, we'd order pizza, camp out on the floor, and I'd play on his boss's pimped out alienware computer.
Dec 20th 2009 6:29AM Not everyone who comes across this site is a vet pally tank. There could very well be paladins out there that are sick of healing/dpsing/pvping that want to give tanking a whirl, and are finding this guide invaluable.
If you're jonesing for ICC info there are plenty of other resources available to you. You can chill and give the noobs a few pally articles. :)

My own DF experience has been pretty positive. There was this one Shadow Priest in an Occulus run that kept telling our Druid healer to "L2HEALZ", even though nobody died in the run. Maybe he had some sort of douchebaggery quota to meet or something. I dunno.
My one complaint is the gear reqs for the new heroics don't seem strict enough. Not for the dps, for me, the tank. My gear isn't up to snuff. After a 9 month break I'm still in mostly Naxx gear. My guildies call it "cute" and "nostalgic" because they're "dicks". I still get put in FoS pretty regularly though, then have to eat the 15 minute debuff because I'm not willing to risk pissing off 4 random strangers with my sub par performance. That's pretty weird now that I think about it.
Dec 20th 2009 1:28AM It wasn't actually an analogy Hoggersbud. Just an example of how unsolicited advice is usually taken.
In any case I still contend that if a run is going smoothly there's no good reason to call someone out. Yeah, they may take the advice to heart and genuinely make an effort to improve. But they'll probably just think you're a dick and go back to doing exactly what they were doing before.
If their performance is holding the group back or causing wipes, advicify away.
Dec 19th 2009 3:24PM Unsolicited advice, no matter how well meaning, is usually recieved poorly.
We've all been trying to enjoy dinner at a nice resturant, where a couple is totally ignoring their screaming child. Yeah, Jr. is pretty much ruining the evening for everyone, but if you walk up and say something like, "Hey, I noticed your screaming hellspawn is ruining everyone's good time. Could you, I dunno, hit him more often or something? I jotted down some parenting websites on this napkin you might find enlightening." their still gonna look at you like YOUR the asshole.
If the run is going smoothly, keep your gob shut.
Apr 25th 2009 6:22PM Constantly recasting to try for a pool gets a tad old. I'd like an option to cast more accurately. Maybe taught through a manual like the "find fish" ability.
Mar 30th 2009 3:28PM I'd like to see a COT that lets us fight Gul'dan. Or a rescue mission for Lothar when he was a prisoner in the Deadmines.
Maybe even use COT to explore some worst-case future scenarios instead of going to the past.
Maybe a bronze dragonflight agent got lost in a future where the Lich King wins. We have to rescue him from a zombie infested major city. Last boss could be zombie Thrall,which is at least sort of awesome.
