Squashling, Hallowed Helm trick-or-treatable {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2008 4:32PM Buy them from someone (thats what I did since I was in the same situation). Just be sure to ask the duration left. The free alternative is get them with an alt, and mail them to your main. It took me a single AB and less then a stack of candy to get the achievement.

Squashling, Hallowed Helm trick-or-treatable {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2008 4:12PM I stopped trick or treating because I have everything for the title but the squashling and the helm. Not having any luck with them dropping from HH. Just read this article, hearted, trick or treated, and got the Squashling! What are the chances!

Tuesday Morning Post: The Headless Horseman burned down my server {WoW}

Oct 21st 2008 8:30AM People need to stop QQing about everything being too easy now. For many, this is a chance to get to see additional content before the expansion hits. My guild is a new guild of first time 70s. We are getting to try out new content we were previously undergeared for. If you are QQing about this, I expect you've gone 6/6 in Sunwell. And in that case, stop being such elitists and let the rest of us who havent been playing for 4 years get to enjoy that content. It's not a matter of only being able to do it on easy-mode. It's a matter of there not being enough time between now and the expansion. And if we waited till level 80, that would have REALLY been easy mode.

Today the MUD and the MMO turn 30 {Massively}

I played that in 6th grade... over 10 years ago. t2t was around long before that, and is still kickin today. I still consider it one of the most immersive games I have ever played.

Breakfast Topic: Are server outages driving you to other games? {WoW}

Oct 20th 2008 1:46PM I heard one person on my realm joke they should make it an achievement if you can loot a corpse in less than a minute. That would be a REAL achievement on my realm, with the recent lag.

Addon Spotlight: Curse Client updater {WoW}

Oct 14th 2008 5:16PM There is nothing illegal or unethical about wowmatrix. It's no different then a web browser. I could use firefox to visit and download an addon. Or I can use wowmatrix/curl. If I want to put up with ads in the interface, that's on me. Saying that wowmatrix is profiting off developers IP is equivalant to saying an ad-supported web browser is profiting off the internet. Duh.

But really... what is so horrible about a simple app that automates some curl commands? Don't get your panties up in a bunch about how we choose to access information off public servers. Maybe Google should start QQing to Microsoft for profiting off their IP with Internet Explorer.

BigRedKitty: Hunter-pets in 3.0.2 {WoW}

Oct 12th 2008 6:12PM @adbiku

I was specifically talking about pve and raiding, which you wouldn't know anything about if you never reached end-game. A big reason "tag teaming" with a pet is desirable is threat mitigation. Even if MM and BM had the same total dps, a BM hunter will pull much less threat since it is split between him and his pet. This makes the tanks job easier, and allows you to go more "all out" versus having to stop shooting frequently because your crits are pulling too much threat.

And it really comes down to personal taste. In my eyes, hunters are a pet-based class, and thats an aspect of the class I like to emphasize in my play style. I've seen the hunter-pet talent trees, and I think the 4 extra pet talent points you get with the Beast Mastery talent could be VERY valuable. And I personally don't care if my DPS is coming from me or my pet. Currently, it's a big loss when my pet dies. Tenacity pets in WOTLK can get the "Heart of the Phoenix" talent which is basically an INSTANT battle rez that revives your pet with FULL health on only a 10 minute cooldown. Thats pretty damn awesome. Pets are getting a LOT of buffs in wotlk, and no matter what spec you go with you will need to learn to rely on them more if you want to stay competitive in your class.

BigRedKitty: Hunter-pets in 3.0.2 {WoW}

Oct 12th 2008 9:33AM I've read that MM will be the new raid spec. Any comments on MM vs BM as far as total dps output goes? I've only briefly testing MM on the PTR, and I got a HUGE dps upgrade over my current 41/20 BM hunter. Haven't gotten a chance to test the new BM tree yet. Only problem is I see is MM isn't anywhere near as much fun as BM :(

A pet collector's guide to the Darkmoon Faire {WoW}

Oct 7th 2008 1:56PM Interesting. I didn't target the ground with the Dark Iron Ale, but the actual NPC. JubJub came running up after a minute. It took me a total of 2 Ale's to get my unhatched egg (out of the 80 or so I collected from doing the brewfest daily). I also scored two Wood Frogs. The respawn for them seems to be really short, less than 10 minutes.
