The Queue: Heroic Alysrazor can DIAF, because I sure have {WoW}

Nov 17th 2011 2:54PM I seem to recall it being exactly 365.

Scattered Shots: Patch 4.3 hunter changes {WoW}

Nov 17th 2011 10:49AM I would be interested in knowing the effect of the 2-bonus on the next tier of armor, which I seem to remember doubles the focus regeneration of steady/cobra shot. What is the rotation like for the different specs if you have that?

Officers' Quarters: Return of an X guild leader {WoW}

Nov 14th 2011 9:51AM First, have B transfer leadership to you. You have the time and inclination to be engaged in this process and she does not right now. You can give it back later.

Second, have a vote among all existing members. Secret ballots by in-game mail to you or someone you trust. Do you want current leadership, probably meaning the name change, or to send the guild back to X/Z?

If you "win" the vote, tell everyone, including X/Z, they are welcome to stay or leave. If they become a problem kick them.

Officers' Quarters: Return of an X guild leader {WoW}

Nov 14th 2011 9:13AM I'm confused. I thought kicking the GM for not logging on for a month was something that would not come until the next patch. I have a toon in a small guild where the GM has not logged in over a month, and the only other toon has not been on in 4 months. It does not give me any option to take over the guild.

The Light and How to Swing It: The storied history of the paladin tank (part 1) {WoW}

Nov 11th 2011 6:19PM I remember tanking as holy because it had a ranged attack that could be used on something other than undead. If you weren't holy and wanted a ranged attack, you had to do a long and annoying series of quests to get the boomerang from Linken - which would at least get somebody's attention. Of course, you were much better off if you were an engineer and could chuck some grenades.

Even after I actually used the protection tree, we still used intellect/spell power gear. I still have the caster mace from exalted lower city rep - that I had to grind shadow labs about a million times to get.

Nov 11th 2011 11:25AM Errr... that would be 6 agility leather.

Nov 11th 2011 11:20AM Whoops, forgot about rogues, so make agility leather (7) adding the 3 specs of rogue.

Nov 11th 2011 11:18AM Somebody in yesterday's comments made a good point about the possibility of having Holy Pallies wear intellect mail. That would eliminate the one-spec armor, and also contribute to the balance of armor types. If we assume that tanking and dps monks wear agility leather while healing monks wear intellect leather, the breakdown would be:

Strength Plate - (5) (ret paladins and 2 specs each of DK and warrior)
Tank Plate - (3) (tanking DKs paladins and warriors)
Intellect Mail - (3) (holy paladins, elemental and resto shamen)
Agility Mail - (4) (enhance shamen and 3 specs of hunter)
Intellect Leather - (3) (healing monks and resto and balance druids)
Agility Leather - (3) (feral druids and tanking and dps monks)
Spirit Cloth - (3) (3 specs of priest)
Non-spirit Cloth - (6) (3 specs each of mage and warlock).

The Queue: Is there golf in Azeroth? {WoW}

Nov 8th 2011 11:39AM I have 5 non-raiding toons over 365, and I generally don't do the trolloics. You're there if you've been getting valors from heroics on a regular basis, along with some crafted gear, molten front rewards, maybe a Thrall cloak, and possibly a boe or two from the AH.

As soon as the current valor gear becomes jp gear, though, you'll be able to get 2-4 378 pieces right away so you'll be able to catch up quick.
