May 4th 2009 8:21AM Actually, I had a lot of fun with Death Grip in the battlegrounds ... I am not a big fan of PVP and prefer tanking raids, tho. Got all the achievements.
On a sidenote: when you have MALE char and got the achievement, fly to Stormpeaks to the area where you get transformed into a female Vrykul. You will lose your "Patron" title and get the "Matron" title for that time. :)
Mar 19th 2009 3:49PM To clarify things: the whole discussion here in Germany is NOT about video game addiction and especially not about WoW. It's about "killing games". After the shootings, some politicians just use the chance to say something and demand some new laws to get more votes in the upcoming elections.
And while the media (well, not the tabloids...) and the experts around here are quite sure the whole "discussion" is stupid, the shooting club lobby uses the chance to distract from their own faults. (Okay, I guess it's kinda useless to discuss weapon laws here)
The WoW rating issue is related to a recent study that shows an increasing number of video game addicts. Some people argue that WoW might look like a nice game for parents who dont want to use 2months to check it for their children and do not realize the addictive potential it has.

Jan 20th 2009 4:33AM What's this "we are 80% sure we get the patch" crap when there's a big and shiny note on the EU-logging screen mentioning the patch tomorrow? :D
Jan 19th 2009 10:21AM You should probably mention the Saliva Corroded Pike as weapon option. It's DPS isnt the best, but it has good stats and more importantly, it's easy to get even if you're not Def Capped since it drops in Violet Hold heroic.
Jan 15th 2009 4:45AM As someone who left their long time played mage to go for Death Knight ... well, I chose a gnome due to roleplaying ideas. It's quite an interesting race and come on, nothing beats a small gnome tanking a dragon with a 2-hand weapon, including the great gnome swing animations...
All the other gnome DKs I see are those female pink hair pony tail clones (they were rogues before wotlk) which make me think about pedophiles.
About the general DK population: The Death Knigh is a very very interesting class to play, it's not just new, it's a great concept and the rune system (joined with the runic power system) makes it much more interesting for me to tank than, say, playing a paladin.
I even think DKs reflect some kind of progress of gameplay in WoW, some classes like hunters, paladins and (to an extend) mages seem to be old school in comparison. I don't say they're easier to play, but in my opinion you feel much closer to the action when playing a DK.
Jan 11th 2009 4:28AM As a DK tank, i am happy about this. I am still using the Saliva Corroded Pike, which isnt the best, but i am Def Capped anyway and will be happy to replace several Def Gems with the new Rune with the next patch. Even more, I can finally put on the T7 legplates, which have a lot less Def (but more avoidance) than th VH leggins.
I dont need a tanking weapon, and apart from some minmaxers preparing for Ulduar (which will certainly also introduce new tanking gear, while 540 Def will still be enough) I see no reason for crying. Just get a decent weapon and L2P, there is nothing you cant as a DK at the moment. :)
