Two Bosses Enter: Mannoroth vs. Asira Dawnslayer {WoW}

Feb 28th 2012 8:59AM First consider Mannoroth, upon losing 74,694,600 of his 99,592,800 health will have to be pulled back into the portal. Asira's smokebomb does 200,000 damage every 40 seconds and Mannoroth won't move out of it. If she does nothing but throw smoke bombs on him it takes less than 400 to kill him. That may seem like a lot, but (assuming I rolled a 20 on my math check this morning) it's only about 4 hours of casting smoke bomb alone. That assumes she does nothing else but smoke bomb, which she doesn't.

Ilidan is also doing 20000 damage every 3 seconds plus his melee and Darklance strikes (27975 to 32025 damage), all while Mannoroth is silenced due to Asira's chaining Mark of Silence with Throw Knife, which refreshes the silence for 2.5 seconds. Mannoroth can only do damage if she is close then as he cannot cast Fel Firestorm while silenced, and until she gets the Gift of Sargeras, which heals for 20% every 2 seconds and deals 30000 fire damage every 2 seconds, she will wisely and obviously stay at range, thereby removing any opportunity for Mannoroth to hurt her. The adds easily go down with Tyrande's help and Varothen, as he only has one ability, would have to hit her over 220 times to kill her, which he cannot do in the short time he will be alive.

Second, remember that most people will vote for who they like, not who actually would win based on abilities, as Asira can easily and obviously negate most of the enemies abilities in this fight.

Thus, the results should be strongly skewed towards Asira but won't be as the big green demon is cooler than the rogue for most people (Though all us rogues know that isn't true :) ).

P.S. I just want to point out, strip all the adds and allies away, and just Asira and Mannoroth in a ring still goes to Asira, as he doesn't walk and has only one ranged spell, and she will just stay at range and silence and smoke bomb him all day until he dies. Even if he does decide to walk, as there is no Illidan to tank him in place, she can easily move out of reach and continue silencing and smoke bombing and knife throwing him to death.

5 not-so-simple ways Blizzard can fix the World of Warcraft Auction House {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 6:37PM Any time you can incentivize the market away from "black" or "grey" purchases, it should be a win for both producers and consumers. There is no question that selling gold would bring change to the market in question, creating more opportunity for production and consumption, without increasing real-world criminal activity. There is however the possibility of rampant inflation. I don't have a problem with gold selling by Blizz in principle, but I do worry about the inflationary pressures that sort of gold influx could potentially cause as a result.

Feb 21st 2012 5:24PM Video two, hands down, number three (maybe even number 1) in my list of favorite martial arts fight sequences!

Plus, for all you who have not encountered "early" Norris movies before, there is a direct proportional relationship between the amount of chest hair visible and the overall coolness of the character. Chuck Norris in Lone Wolf McQuade or Way of the Dragon, very hairy and very cool. Chuck Norris in Sidekicks, no chest hair, scarily uncool. And don't get me started on the whole Walker "debacle."
