May 4th 2009 5:13PM shadow priest...sounds good, this would be a really good buff to the healing that goes out due to VE. Not saying a spriest should get it first, but someone like me a shadow priest who has gear and dual spec for discipline could definitely benefit from this (and the whole raid) no matter what spec or role I am in atm.

Spiritual Guidance: Shadow as a secondary spec in 3.1 {WoW}

Apr 13th 2009 6:39PM I would advise most healing priests to use their second spec either for the other healing sepc, or for some pvp/arena spec. I've been shadow since I started playing, literally never specing holy or disc once. My fear is that we will see lots of healing priests trying to dps in raids. There are some talented people out there who can probably learn the dps rotation for a shadow priest and really make it work, but do the raiding guilds a favor and don't go to the dark side!!!

Realm maintenance for Tuesday March 31st {WoW}

Addon devs respond to Blizzard UI policy changes {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2009 2:29PM exactly! developers do this all the time, they don't charge for the software, they charge a subscription fee to the website, and that's the only place you can download the software. Its not that hard for a creative developer to figure out how to make this both financially viable and attractive to the end user.

As I said before, go look at the developer community for Joomla. There are thousands of third party extensions, many charge fees for the website, ect. to make up the costs of the hosting, and development time. And that is, after all, only fair considering the time and talent that goes into software.

Mar 23rd 2009 1:06PM people develop stuff all the time for free. Just look at the opensource community like Joomla.

The Queue: You have been pwned by a grue {WoW}

Mar 17th 2009 1:24PM I can certainly understand if your guild didn't have the attunement to take it, even if you hadn't said so before hand. The raid I was in the guild already had it, they just wanted to give it to another raid leader in the guild that was with them. Again, say the rules ahead of time, and don't change it just because you made a mistake, suck it up!

The Queue: You have been pwned by a grue {WoW}

Mar 17th 2009 11:38AM Easiest solution to this type of problem (as one who pug's a lot) just say a quick loot rule at the beginning. Something like "Need if you'll use, greed if you'll sell or DE".

As an ehcnahter it's also helpful to say at the beginning whether or not you expect the enchanter to DE the stuff and roll for shards at the end. It makes me upset when people just expect you to make shards for them. They aren't the ones who spend literally thousands of gold to lvl enchanting high enough to be able to DE something.

It's just a game, but the easiest way to avoid this type of frustrating stuff is just say what you expect from the beginning. If they don't like it, they can leave.

One example of this is when I joined a Naxx 25 as a pug. I was told loot was open, roll for main spec first, ect. just normal rules. Then we beat Sapphiron and the attunement key for Eye of Eternity dropped (like it always does), and the guild immediately gave it to a member of the guild. I expressed frustration, and was told to basically just accept it because I was a pug. It didn't upset me that so much that the guild kept it, but that they didn't tell me ahead of time. All they had to say was 'open loot' except for the attunement key. I could have then made the decision to go or not go if it was a big deal.

All this to say, avoid stuff like this by just being clear at the beginning. Makes the game more fun!
