How much are you speeding up the instance, though, if you're just standing around with your mana and/or health bars only partially full while others eat and drink? Because I've seen 'locks do just that.
I agree that Life Tap is a core ability, but I think it should be used wisely, not just to shave fifteen seconds off every couple of pulls.
Jan 28th 2009 12:34PM That periodically happens to me in Dalaran; I usually find that disabling all my addons and logging back in works. Then I get the heck out of Dodge, log out, and re-enable my addons. (Also not logging out in one of the high-latency areas of Dalaran in the first place helps. Inside the bank is much better than in front the mailbox outside it, for instance.)

Jan 27th 2009 9:06PM Funny, in my house it goes kind of like this:
"Hey, Mom, tell me the stories of your tattoos again."
"Well, this one was the first I ever got, when I was sixteen. And this one was to celebrate when your dad and I got married...." Etc., through the dozen plus tattoos I have and the moments in my life—good and bad—that they are markers of.
You also seem to be under the mistaken impression that only young people get tattoos.
Jan 21st 2009 12:27AM So how are things over at MicroSoft these days, Laggo? *koff*
Jan 17th 2009 6:13PM Just hit the defense cap with my Paladin tank alt, so I *should* be PUGging some Heroics for badges and l00t, but I'm a little terrified because I haven't seriously tanked an instance for anyone outside my guild since I off-tanked a lolrun of Kara with a friend's guild midway through leveling to 80.

Jan 3rd 2009 6:22AM I have so much to do in WoW right now that I don't even know where to start. I have alts to level (including two DKs), a main who's not quite to 80 yet, mats to farm and professions to skill up, achievements to work on, and gear runs to do....
Jan 2nd 2009 7:19PM My guild avoids the blame game by having a blame roll after wipes: you win the roll, you have to come up with the most outrageous reason possible why you caused the wipe. It's hard to be stressed or pissed off when you're laughing so hard you're crying.
Dec 31st 2008 9:56AM Biggest accomplishment:
After nearly four years of dinking around in-game and only leveling two characters as far as 40 (one of which I hated with a passion) and a handful of others to the 25-30 range, I finally found the right people and the right guild. In the last six months of 2008 I got to 70+ on four different characters--one currently at 78, two at 77, and one at 71.
Not doing this sooner. I missed out on a lot of content that disappeared with the various xpacs and patches over the years because I didn't have characters high enough level to participate in end-game.
