WoW Rookie: Reading about Warcraft {WoW}

Sep 9th 2009 6:32PM Thanks guys I have been looking for these for ages! I assume more book retails will carry them but being an aussie you never know, does Blizzard actually sell these online?

Encrypted Text: Rogue tips for raiding Trial of the Crusader, part 1 {WoW}

Sep 2nd 2009 8:03PM Downed Anub'Arak after first an instance restart then our realm crashing and then a realm restart haha. Have to way its a very enjoyable fight. I am also looking foward to the faction champs strat there doesn't seem to be any underlying trait that takes up from almost instadeath to smashing them down without losing anyway.

Typically our "tank" goes in and picks up the squishiest healer and pops his mass fear. We throw up a hero and burn it down, our "OT" tries to tie up the biggest DPS threat which last night for us was that mage (ewww) while the rest burn the healer. Then from there it's pretty simple normally myself and the OT are picking up one and tying it up while the rest zerg the main dps / healing priority of the time.

Whether it be luck or whatever we go from complete wipe to easy modes in a matter of 2-3 goes but we never seem to change the strat....it's an annoying encounter for sure. Love Anub'Arak though, Beasts are a bit boring Jaraxxus if OK if you don't have DBM enabled and have it scream at you every time an infernal spawns :(

Felicia Day unleashes geeky pop single {WoW}

Aug 17th 2009 9:14PM Wow that really had the opposite effect on me. I love MMO's like everyone else here but hearing a girl jumping around singing about MMO's (using auto tuner no less) it hardly a turn on. If I were to ever here this in a club or when I was out and about I don't think anyone would take me seriously if I got into it at all. If it makes her money kudos, but meh.

Player reaction to the 5-man Trial {WoW}

Aug 6th 2009 10:13PM man I have never thought of it like this.....thats just plain annoying now you've said that :(

Player reaction to the 5-man Trial {WoW}

Aug 6th 2009 10:10PM I LOVE the new instance, I farmed it all of yesterday for a ring upgrade that is perfect for my rogue given its current gearing. I have only seen it drop once in about 25 runs and someone need rolled for offspec so I have yet to pick it up. Needless of say I am getting over the new 5 man fairly quickly but it's a great idea for an instance. I love the fights and the fact that as a rogue I have a lot of utility with CC, Disarm and so forth. Heroic also seems to be at an appropriate level. Scrubs will fail, geared players or players with clue are awared with epics.

Well done Blizz! (I love jousting though so all good).

Exodus punished for exploiting Yogg-Saron encounter {WoW}

Jun 29th 2009 10:58PM If anything atleast Exodus got the fight hotfixed to ensure that doesn't happen again. What annoys me is that Exodus says it was unbeatable so they are justified in exploiting the encounter. The whole idea I thought was that they didn't want the encounter beaten within months of it coming out, in any event sucks to be you Exodus haha.

Breakfast Topic: How do you cope with burnout? {WoW}

Jun 18th 2009 8:35AM I was very excited to finally get into an Ulduar guild. A lot of wipes later and not a lot of progression is definitely taking its toll. It eats into time to do my dailies and I have always wanted to be a raider but it makes me wonder why I bother. I want to epic loot but I find the fun wow stuff I used to do I no longer partake in.

Sad gnome is sad.

Mountain Dew pets not for EU gamers {WoW}

The Art of War(craft): Is Wintergrasp too successful for its own good? {WoW}

May 17th 2009 12:13PM I don't understand why they don't just instance wintergrasp then? We already take ports from Dalaran when the fight begins, when we fly over it we enter a no fly zone and have the opportunity to A) Turn around or B) Fly into the zone as we intended anyway. Can't they just put a giant instance around the zone, but have it act the same as the no fly zone? If you stay there for 8 seconds (or whatever it is) you get ported, if you turn around you go on your merry way. I'm not sure how this would effect flight paths, but the concept seemed to work for the Death Knight starting zone although I guess that is a little different. Most PC's these days would easily be able to swap from Northrend to the instance if the terrain is all pre-loaded which it probably would be because we can see it?

Anyway I am no computer buff but it just seems like a logical step. That way everyone can play Wintergrasp but it can be handled by instance servers or something.....

New PTR patch notes {WoW}

Apr 9th 2009 10:18PM Haha fair call I should have seen that coming, rogues aren't horrible and I definitely am not fanstastic at PvP but I do run the best DPS output for my rogue as well as try and utilise the best gear (I'm definitely not min/maxing to the extreme). Just seems rogues with early naxx/prenaxx gear are definitely being out dpsed by dks and hunters in raids. I only top the damage meters if I'm in a pug but not a guild run.

Anyway as I said I guess I should have expected criticism, will have to wait till 3.1 drops anyway to see how the class changes pan out I spose.

Either way I still QQ, that might be the 4 AB losses I suffered today talking though.
