15 Minutes of Fame: Progressive guild thrives under uncommon leadership team {WoW}

Sep 30th 2011 10:13AM Conservatives are not necessarily sexist, racist, homophobic, or bigoted.

But they *do* support candidates who on the whole push policies that make it more difficult to strive for equality. Even if that is not the rationale behind their support, they still help foster bigotry and inequality because of the policies their candidates push.

On a slightly related note, it is absolutely hilarious how the party that represents the interests of big corporations suddenly adopts a victim complex the instant anything even remotely related to politics appears that they don't agree with 100%. The clear intent of the article was to showcase a unique kind of guild: one formed around a political background, with older leaders. And conservatives are reacting as if Wowinsider's entire staff went out and urinated on Ronald Reagan's grave.

The Light and How to Swing It: Retribution in the Firelands, part 2 {WoW}

Sep 14th 2011 12:39PM Certainly the specs you mention are outperforming 50k by a wide margin - I wouldn't argue that Rets should go up above those. But other ranged specs don't get as much of a buff from the rings/crit buff, and among melee, only rogues can get more of one - so Rets are not a bad choice for the air team. But my point wasn't so much that Rets *should* go up, but rather that the reason stated why they shouldn't - that it is difficult to be continually DPSing Alysrazor - is blatantly incorrect.

The Light and How to Swing It: Retribution in the Firelands, part 2 {WoW}

Sep 14th 2011 11:18AM Oops, down to #4 now (in the unlikely case anyone cares) - looks like a few more rets broke the 50k mark on Tuesday.

The Light and How to Swing It: Retribution in the Firelands, part 2 {WoW}

Sep 14th 2011 11:11AM "The reason I mention that this role is less ideal for a ret paladin is because of the superhuman jockeying you will need to do to stay in melee range of Alysrazor while avoiding clouds and flying through rings. If you want my opinion, leave this job to the ranged DPS classes."

What?!? I'm ranked #2 on WOL on Alysrazor 25man, and there is no "jockeying" necessary to stay in melee range of her. Her hitbox is GARGANTUAN!! You can be hitting a ring just as it is about to expire and still be in melee range of her. You can also continue to DPS her during P2 while you're dodging fiery tornadoes.

I hate to be so critical, but there are a lot of ret-specific things you could be talking about, not generic facts about bosses released 2.5 months ago and bad arachnophobia jokes.

GuildOx finds the world's most experienced raid boss killer {WoW}

Sep 12th 2011 9:49AM This site continually confuses quantity with quality.

The Light and How to Swing It: Retribution in the Firelands, part 1 {WoW}

Aug 31st 2011 3:29PM You forgot to mention the Belt of Uncrushable Fury from Shannox. Theoretically designed for a tank (due to its socket bonus), but it is our BiS item.

Meet the Bloggers: Basil "Euripides" Berntsen {WoW}

Jul 22nd 2011 11:32AM Nothing in his post was elitist nor snobbish. And Lipstick, I have no idea where you're coming from - Basil is easily the most upright and ethical of all of the gold-making "personalities" out there.

I don't understand why the man isn't allowed to say he only really enjoys fresh content. Or that he wants to identify with his faction.

The Light and How to Swing It: Basic retribution cooldowns -- when to pop your wings {WoW}

Jul 14th 2011 10:53AM Yes, you should always have Inquisition up. Whether you're using Power Auras or CLCRet or both to keep track of Inquisition timing, it should let you know to refresh it when it is about to expire. I wouldn't get in the habit of macro-ing cooldowns together unless you know you want to use those abilities together 100% of the time. The columnist is giving bad advice on that front. Also, it should at least be mentioned that Apparatus might cause us to separate Zealotry and AW - the jury is still out on that one.

Ready Check: WoW Insider's guide to Shannox {WoW}

Jul 8th 2011 2:36PM You can have a rogue disarm all the immolation traps.

Its fine to just try to use distance, but keep in mind that if Shannox gets further than 60 yards from one of his dogs, he gains a massive buff and can one shot tanks.

Gold Capped: How do I make money from alchemy? {WoW}

Jun 28th 2011 10:20AM Yeah, it is pretty nice guaranteed profit (I use it to make my dreamcloth, truegold, and enchants that require air a lot cheaper to make). The extra 4-6 transmute "procs" are of a random volatile type, however, no matter what zone you do them in.
