How the "Summon Memory" fight in the Trial of the Champion should have been done {WoW}

Aug 11th 2009 8:44PM You only need to slay five of them.

And really, I don't care if it would have taken longer. Paletress is essentially a Mograine-Whitemane fight right now. (Whitemane? Paletress? If you didn't see that connection, . .)

Run in, fight her, she decides to sleep-heal-and-summon-her-pet. This could have been a wonderful fight, but I find myself facing Shadow VanShadow, not Edwin VanCleef's memory. I remember him being a fighting that took some tanking skill at a low level. Not "pick him up and heal the spell." I remember Hakkar being a fun, interesting way to kill a boss. Now, it's "pick him up and heal the spell." The list goes on.

Should have just given us a Shadow Paletress to fight, named "Memory of Repentence" and given it the abilities. Other than baiting us with fighting Shadow Onyxia like a bad form of Shadow Lugia in Pokemon.

The Queue: Wherein The Queue has as much consistency as Smodcast {WoW}

Aug 10th 2009 12:25PM I'm sorry, but I'm still astounded by the stupidity after several months of reading The Queue.

These people are NOT Blizzard. They do NOT know everything. Asking them "When will the next Expansion be released" is about as good as asking your Magic Eight Ball. Which was done once before. No offense to them, they give really good information and answer good questions, but please: Stop asking them silly things only a Dev would know (and consequently couldn't release.)

And as for Tauren elevators? Look at the top of them. Windmills make them work. Mulgore is a very windy place, most of their wells and much of their technology relies on the wind to move the pullies.

Patch 3.3: It isn't necessarily going to be Icecrown Citadel. It's all really speculation. The Climax of Burning Crusade wasn't till Patch 2.4, even if it was an entirely unexpected climax. Don't place your bets on what-what yet.

Priest Q&A: Tackling the Shadow Priest answers {WoW}

Aug 7th 2009 2:43PM @Robert M

What are you on? Priests have fallen. In Vanilla, we were the only trusted healer. . the druid and the pally and the shaman were okay, but if you had to do it right, you had to have a priest. Come Burning Crusade, the rise of the other classes to match the priest's, we were equals. The priest could perform at the same rank of any other.

Now, in Wrath, we've lost our place. The Paladin is the king of tank healing, the Druid the master of endurance, and the Shaman the lord of raid healing. We're. . minus a niche. We're the jack of all trades, master of none.

Priests manage fine in five mans because they're the only one performing. They fall short in the raids, even the "new" mechanics of Discipline don't replace or add anything new.

WoW Rookie: Get up to speed with a mount {WoW}

Aug 5th 2009 4:13PM You made a mistake. Flying mounts are now at 150%, regular. So they're not the same speed as a normal land mount anymore.

Arcane Brilliance: 6 essential Mage add-ons for PvE {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2009 3:34AM The problem with Addons is. .
People become far too dependent on them. Then, the moment a patch rolls around and the addon stops working, they're lost. The error messages destroy them!

This is why I like to keep my addons to a low-scale, not total UI changing. My UI is recognizable as standard Blizzard, save the odd window here or there that's not normally there. I could function without them to the same standard as with them.

One Boss Leaves: Loken clears Round One {WoW}

Jul 30th 2009 1:36PM What we all forget is. . .

Loken is under the control of Yogg-Saron. ALGALON is the OBSERVER. He isn't aligned with Loken. Loken can't "die and summon" Algalon, Algalon is here to say if Azeroth is a lost cause or not. Essentially, it'd never come down to Algalon VS Malygos, because Algalon isn't going to help the corrupted Guardian.

And, just the fact that Algalon is Titan-aligned and Malygos is a Titan's lapdog is just enough to say, Malygos is smarter than to pick a fight with the Titans.

The Light and How to Swing It: Five things every Paladin must do. Period. {WoW}

Jul 22nd 2009 7:00PM I think each class should get one of these. Spread the word, collumnists! Write this stuff down! Priests, Warlocks, Death Knights, Warriors! then again, it'll be almost entirely the same list with just different details. D:

. . First. . ?

The Queue: Are you a god? {WoW}

Jul 20th 2009 9:14PM The server question on realms. . .

The theory is that Kalimdor is its own server (hence it has an individual loading screen), the Eastern Kingdoms too. The Outland server includes Quel'thalas, Outland, and Azuremyst/Bloodmyst isle, and the Northrend server is Northrend. And maybe the DK starter zone.

It's all only a theory.

Breakfast Topic: Would you play a Worgen or a Goblin? {WoW}

Jul 18th 2009 10:03AM What is bugging me, how each collumnist that writes about the "Cataclysm" fails to realize. . .

That it was not the "Catalcysm" that broke apart Azeroth. That was from Dragonlance. It was The Sundering. "Cataclysm" could point to a Maelstrom expansion, but please, stop using it as a reference to events surrounding the Maelstrom. That was the Sundering and the War of the Ancients.

Anyways, on topic: I would play a furry. I don't care, I would.

Engineering buffs up {WoW}

Feb 24th 2009 9:09PM This is all nice and stuff, but. .

Really? Nothing for Inscription? We've got glyphs, books, and fancier shoulder enchants. All that really does is give us free offhands for our alts, no need to grind Hodir rep, and a bunch'a useless stuff.

I'm sorry for the QQ, but I'm beginning to regret taking the profession. Any chance of getting our own trinkets or another enchantment capability?
