Totem Talk: Restoration in the Plagueworks {WoW}

Apr 21st 2010 2:54AM Taking time away from your fantasy football blogging to nerd rage on wow.com...

You need to get laid or rub one out asap.

Breakfast Topic: I don't have one of those {WoW}

Mar 17th 2010 3:26PM I'm rather surprised at how much irrational class hatred is out there.
I don't blame people for disliking certain classes while leveling as some are obviously easier/faster than others. However the margin of skill required (at end game) to play each class well is very slim indeed. Perhaps my lack of class bias is why I have 5 80's.
Achievements are a different story. I would rather cut my kneecaps off and kneel in piss than take the time to get Explorer, Loremaster, Insane etc.
To each their own.

Scattered Shots: Marksman 101, part 2 {WoW}

Mar 11th 2010 3:13PM In regards to KS vs. Hawk you may want to consult a spreadsheet rather than relying on truthiness. Depends entirely on mob hp and raid dps.
Of course KS is the way to go for heroics and any fights with target switching.

Gold Capped: Selling with Auctioneer's Appraiser {WoW}

Mar 6th 2010 6:14PM Horses for courses:
Auctioneer= Scalpel
Auctionator= Butter Knife
QA3=Some other type of cutlery, you get the point.

I actually use all three of these and Addon control panel so I can turn them off when raiding. What would be nice is if these authors got together and made one auction addon to rule them all. Combining the intuitive interface of Auctionator with the features of Auctioneer and QA3.



Blood Legion scores world first Lich King kill {WoW}

Feb 3rd 2010 5:49AM I really hope Bliz exponentially kicks up the difficulty for hard modes. If there ever was a time to shut up the "easy mode" crowd, this is it. Here's to hoping they put the screws to these whiners.

Scattered Shots: Hunting heroics and PUGs {WoW}

Jan 18th 2010 5:50PM I haven't done much testing with this but as survival I'm pretty sure I do more dps by dropping an explosive trap, disengaging, and firing off lnl'd explosive shots. If I have more than 2 mobs up after that I volley. Kill shot is indeed a great way to pad the meters (which I fully endorse).
Of course this strat was useless pre 3.3 but with the change to MD and the buff to ET it's very effective. I'd also add that it's helpful for mitigation because you're focusing down the caster(s) very quickly with lock n load.

Insider Trader: Of Arrows and Bullets {WoW}

Dec 13th 2009 4:31PM The only problem I see with epic ammo is this goblin/gnomish nonsense. What an odd time to bring back specializations that up until now have been totally ignored. In a game that's consistently evolved by breaking down artificial barriers (with exception to ICC) there's a definite disconnect here.

Additional instances cannot be launched, please find something else to do. {WoW}

Dec 9th 2009 2:37PM I get the intent of these posts but I'll play devils advocate.

My question is, with Blizzard having virtually unlimited resources, why not expand the infrastructure to accommodate for patch days and extreme activity spikes? This will certainly not be the last time we have a major patch and with Cataclysm we're going to have an even bigger influx of players. Admittedly I don't know the technical ramifications but it's a fair question to ask.

Justifying the tiered badge system {WoW}

Nov 19th 2009 1:25PM Make emblems BoA and I'll have no complaints. There's just no compelling reason for them not to do this. If new players should be able to catch up, why not new alts? Our mains worked for the badges so it's not like we're getting something for nothing.

[1.Local]: we're acusing him of been respoble {WoW}

Sep 6th 2009 5:18PM I weep for the future...


Speaking of weeping, is it just me or does crying once if not multiple times because of the death of a video game npc seem a little melodramatic?
