The Queue: Re-Vita-lized {WoW}

Feb 11th 2012 2:02PM You can indeed still obtain the title if you had the quest in your logs prior to patch 3.0.2 being deployed on live servers.

The population of people who still come under this category is minuscule, to make a massive understatement.

Feb 11th 2012 2:00PM There's this player on my server who has a name in all lowercase letters. Whether in-game, while chatting to him, or his name on the AH...all of it, in lowercase.

Anyone have an idea how this was pulled off? What am I missing?

Patch 4.3: Tier 13 set bonuses revealed {WoW}

Sep 25th 2011 12:00AM Posting it again here, due to comment system fail.

The difference between a haste-stacked Aimed shot focus dump or an Arcane shot focus dump is not as large as most people make it out to be. Yes, Aimed focus dump is theoretically higher damage, but if you have to even interrupt one of those AiS casts to move, it can potentially be a damage loss over arcane.

You're probably aware of that already, but based on how movement heavy fights in Dragon Soul will be, it's may be better to stick with Arcane as a focus dump. This of course is all speculation. We shall see.

Further, I have qualms with the 2p bonus as a Marks main. With the change, it will mean that we will be steady shotting less in MM, which makes it harder to keep up the improved SS buff, which is already quite unforgiving to prevent from falling off (miss even one SS in your rotation and the buff is likely to fall off, = substantial dps loss). Unless they increase the duration of ISS, I have mixed feelings about the 2p bonus as Marks.

Fantastic talent. I quite liked the Temple of the Moon rendition.

The OverAchiever: Reconsidering achievements and raids {WoW}

Sep 8th 2011 5:45PM While I agree with your points, I believe what you are suggesting (7 easy bosses, 7 hard bosses, with no heroic modes) goes back to the very model Blizzard was consciously moving away from in the first place, due to accessibility issues.

Imagine the Deathwing raid follows that model, and the Deathwing encounter is tuned to be on the harder side of things (think Illidan Stormrage pre-nerf), we go back to only having ~1% (whatever the figure is) of the raiding population successfully downing the boss. I don't believe it is reasonable to have such a small population actually experience the demise of the end-boss of an expansion.

The OverAchiever: Reconsidering achievements and raids {WoW}

Sep 8th 2011 5:35PM Interesting topic.

I believe this goes back to the discussion we had here on WI some weeks ago (I forget exactly when), where it was suggested that the 10/25 split be abandoned entirely for a consistent 15 man raid model.

It isn't without it's own drawbacks, but 15 man raids with the Ulduar style of heroic activation (in spite of the [relatively minor] negative aspects of this design) would work best in the long term, in my opinion.
