The Queue: I was right edition {WoW}

Oct 31st 2010 9:38AM She must be referring to when your healer gets turned to stone while fighting Krystallus in Halls of Stone.

I like that idea better than the thought of people promoting uninformed and blatantly incorrect stereotypes.

Raid Rx: Tell your raid to stand in glowing circles {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2010 12:04PM My HW:Sanc seems to not show the graphic at all on the first cast, but it will on subsequent casts. Not a huge issue, since the spell still heals.. ..bigger issue when it's a void zone not showing up the first time.

The Shattering plot summary: Thrall {WoW}

Oct 19th 2010 3:41AM Didn't you read all those comments above you? Basically people wanted Thrall to 'tank and spank' Jaina, but he got Aggra aggro instead.

Encrypted Text: Rogue specs and glyphs for patch 4.0.1 {WoW}

Oct 13th 2010 9:56PM You don't need to work SnD into an Assassin rotation, just get a few points up however you want, hit SnD, and then it refreshes to the 5pt length whenever you finish with Envenom. (Or Evis.)

Guild size cap and the WoW Insider reader guild {WoW}

Oct 6th 2010 8:44PM A guild alliance functionality would be the best bet. In Guild Wars it's possible to have alliances of 10 guilds, and each guild has their own guild chat, along with an alliance chat which spans all allied guilds. In general however, guilds are a lot smaller in GW - you join a guild with your account, rather than individually with all your characters, and many serious pvp guilds only have around 10 people, as a team for the high end pvp types are 8 vs 8 - so alliance chat isn't terribly spammy.

That said, there are pve guilds with extremely large communities (similar to this AIE guild apparently), like the Amazon Basin and Xen of Onslaught, which use the alliance functionality to plan events or find others to play with, and treat the alliance as one huge guild/guild chat.

It would need a different name in Warcraft though. A Horde alliance, and an Alliance alliance? That wouldn't work.

Spiritual Guidance: Preparing disc and holy priests, page 2 {WoW}

Sep 26th 2010 10:26PM "All the better though, since I still find upkeep of Prayer of Healing Chakra a little clunky."

I agree, I don't see why they can't just add Circle of Healing to the AoE chakra stance. It might just be that I'm a terrible priest, but I don't find myself in situations where I'd want to use Prayer of Healing all that much. It will be even worse now that Serendipity isn't as effective - Flash Heal is more expensive, so we won't have the PoH cast time shortened as often.

WoW Mobile Armory gets 3-D model viewer, activity feeds and more {WoW}

Sep 22nd 2010 9:42PM There's Android authenticator but no official Android armory app yet? C'mon Blizz, you're killing us here.

Win a pony from WoW.com {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 5:10PM Wow.com promised me a pony. But an XT is fine too..

WoW Moviewatch: This is War {WoW}

Jan 19th 2010 12:30PM I was confused by that as well, along with the description of "their moody, somber feel." I had to check the video to make sure they were talking about the same 30 Seconds to Mars I know. Unfortunately, it was.

If 30STM is somber, then I wonder what that would make Katatonia and Opeth. Wrist-slashingly depressing?
