Kissing cousins: SWTOR's legacy system explained {Massively}

Mar 30th 2012 7:40PM @Scarecrowe "What passes as movie canon should be re-examined. I mean, Jar-Jar Binks anyone?"

Fixed your sentence for you.

Know Your Lore: The hour of the king {WoW}

Know Your Lore: The haunting legacy of Grom Hellscream {WoW}

Mar 25th 2012 6:17PM "It is always very carefully stated that Garrosh is taken down, but never once does the word death enter the picture."

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who picked up on that. Only time will tell how Garrosh's plotline will ultimately unfold.

As an Alliance player, I'm excited to see his comeuppance, but regardless of his life or death in the end, his departure from the mantle of Warchief will have lasting repercussions throughout the World of Warcraft for months, if not years.

Mists of Pandaria FAQ {WoW}

Mar 19th 2012 4:19AM Matthew, what are you talking about?

From the Tom Chilton interview:

"We are slowly in progress with revamping the races, but the reality is that at best we would get the Dwarves for Mists of Pandaria, and even that's on the bubble. It is something that we are planning to do, it is something that we want to get to and actually believe is valuable."

Mists of Pandaria FAQ {WoW}

Mar 19th 2012 3:01AM The Mists have lifted!

... Wow, that's a LOT of stuff hidden under that mist!

Ghostcrawler talks game systems in final Cataclysm post-mortem {WoW}

Mar 7th 2012 1:09PM "(For my money, the zone I am personally saddest about cancelling is not Abyssal Maw; it was the Azjol-Nerub quest zone in Wrath of the Lich King.)"

Damn, and I had stopped thinking of the 'what could have beens' from an Azjol-Nerub quest zone too! I loved the dungeons in Dragonblight, that area would have been awesome!

Breakfast Topic: Do you enjoy strategic healing? {WoW}

Mar 5th 2012 5:50PM "I remember at the start of Cata, actually getting into an argument with a DPS player about why he can't sit there and facetank because my mana can't handle it."

I'm fairly sure that this happened to many healers, and the resulting frustrations of the healers who were trying their best to adapt to the new Cataclysm paradigm while the dps refused to change their non-CC/facerolling ways caused many players to throw up their hands in frustration and stop healing.

Enter the Call to Arms feature for heroics. While it provided an incentive for healers to come back, it didn't fix the core problem - the people in the dungeon with them.

Blizzard finally gave up trying to change the way players think and fell back on Wrath-era tactics, not because it wanted to, but because the playerbase found it the most rewarding and stress-free. As a healer who stuck it out throughout the entire expansion, I very much prefer being complimented for my great heals in Hour of Twilight and The Well of Eternity over being yelled at for running OOM in the Lost City of the Tol'vir for the eleventh pull.

Breakfast Topic: What's your favorite Blizzard art? {WoW}

Feb 29th 2012 10:43AM This piece of Netherstorm concept art:

It just crackles with energy and electricity, and has a hazardous element to it that I wish was conveyed more in the actual zone.
