Sep 12th 2009 4:14PM this just seems like a waste of time. I always felt the leveling process was FOR learning the class, but instead all these class columns are just keeping themselves busy helping people that really shouldn't need it. I used to be a newbie, just like everyone else. but apparently I'm the only one capable of learning on his own. I didn't use a class guide, i figured things out on my own. anything that's supposed to be helping new players shoulnd't be wasted in WEEKLY CLASS COLUMNS.
Isn't that what Wow-Rookie is for???
I play a rogue, and i stopped reading Encrypted text after the numerous and increasingly stupid posts. The worst of which was an entire weekly column that focused 100% on rogues using axes, which did nothing more then open up a few new gear choices, since it used sword spec as its talent. And an entire (ENTIRE!!!) weekly column got dedicated to this??? ARE YOU F**KING KIDDING ME???? Almost the entire column was a joke, and chase christian can bite me for wasting my time like that. I have literally passed over Encrypted text since it turned into absolute crap info. i swear i know more about rogues then he does.
now the druid and hunter class columns have been reduced to this drivel, helping newbs that are too stupid to learn to play the game themselves. as if leveling 1-10 was any sort of challenge to ANYONE. and if it was, find a new game, because someone that stupid won't find a good place in the endgame world.
Yes, i am an ElitistJerk, and proud of it. so don't bother trying to call me out on something stupid like that. Mathew Rossi is one of the only columnists i actually respect, because he's in a REAL raiding guild, not some "we do Heroics for emblems and we're up to Kologarn in Ulduar omg" guild that a lot of these supposed "class experts" are in.
Of course this comment will get downranked and and blacked out probably within seconds after the editor is done reading it. But I don't care. The quality of this websites writing has fallen so hard, I'm about to remove wow.com from my bookmarks.

Website: none yet
Raid/active time*: We raid afternoons during the week.
Goals:Ulduar Hard modes (10 man)
Who we are: We are a new 10 man raiding guild, for players who prefer the social experience of running with 9 other people you can depend on and get along with.
What we're looking for: Guild rule number 1: If you don't pull your weight, you will be kicked. The point of this guild is to get away from the lackluster or just plain fail players on this server (and if your on it you know it to be true) We will gear you through heroics if need be, as long as you first prove your potential, or show a willingness to improve.

Feb 27th 2009 2:40PM i play a rogue, and while i don't know a lot about them, warriors have always been one of my favorite classes.
and making titans grip baseline actually does really makes sense. i don't think this post sounds like QQ, simply because i've noticed a dramatic decrease in warrior population. I asked in trade chat if anyone knew why, and i had so many responses (from death knights that used to be warriors) that they had all rerolled death knights, simply because their warrior had turned into a walking fail in almost every aspect of the game.
i wholeheartedly agree with this post
Feb 24th 2009 4:43PM blizzard is just obsessed with making people walk everywhere.
just take a look at the low level shaman totem quests
sorry, but walking for hours is NOT fun, no matter what sort of environment you're in
Feb 20th 2009 3:12PM wasn't there an article recently describing exactly how overpowered dk's are in pvp, why is this article news to anybody?
and if you've played a battleground since Wrath, you should know firsthand how screwed up that class is
Death knights are a plague
Feb 20th 2009 9:43AM No idea how this happened, but during a 10 man Naxx run on Heigan, I somehow earned the achievement Damage Control,
which is actually a pvp battleground achivement for doing 300,000 damage in one said battleground.
confused? me too
Feb 4th 2009 10:44AM that was sort of random to actually call a rogue "mandatory"
i play a rogue, and I am irritated day in and day out that our class offers NOTHING to a raid. if blizzard isn't going to give people an actual reason to bring a rogue or two to a raid, outside of "we have to be fair" then we should be absolute damage dealing machines, brought along for dps other classes can't pull. but instead, we can barely keep up with other classes as it is.
this is an argument thats been made since day one, and i really would like to know when blizzard is actually going to do something about this, instead of wasting their time on things no one cares about.
NOBODY PLAYS WOW FOR F***ING CLAMS!
Jan 28th 2009 9:40AM wasn't dk's howling blast supposed to have it's cooldown removed? that's what the original 3.0.8 patch notes said. then the invisible 5 second bug cooldown came out, and blizz said that would be fixed. now its considered "fixed" because the invisible 5 second cooldown is now visible. this makes no sense. what's the point of removing ONE SECOND from a cooldown?
i vote, no more lies in patch notes.
