Ready Check: WoW Insider's guide to Majordomo Staghelm {WoW}

Aug 12th 2011 11:15AM As others have said... Stag knows your spec.... any heals/ranged dps are valid targets for his leap, even if they are in melee range.

The Queue: In which Diablo is questioned {WoW}

Aug 2nd 2011 12:04PM It used to be a chance... but now they increased the chance to 100% some time ago....

Scattered Shots: Five secrets for not being a terrible hunter {WoW}

May 17th 2010 6:38PM @daan

I assume you play a pally tank as that is the only tank where your protip will work. Unless you're talking about the aoe taunts like challenging shout... otherwise taunt must be targeted on the mob itself.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: The homogenization factor {WoW}

Feb 27th 2010 12:50PM Hmm, I really have to disagree w/ your analysis of AD not being as good as we might think it is. The 1up every 2 min is just OP, plain and simple. I don't think it's a good argument to say that it cannot be saved for the right moment because every time it's used it's the right moment, all things being equal if AD procs at an unexpected time it would have been a tank death on any other class.

To say that it's on CD at the wrong time is just wrong...

Officers' Quarters: Multiple personalities {WoW}

Feb 8th 2010 4:01PM Hmm, well, when I was young I asked my dad if I could have a toy car, he said no... So I asked my mother if I could have it, my mom bought it for me.... when my dad saw that we were bought the toy car later... well... lets just say I couldn't sit down without pain for a bit... Then I learned that if I ask for something from one of a 'team' you souldn't ask another if you don't like the answer.

In this case, if you asked and the GM said he's thinking about it or looking into it... you shouldn't be asking someone else...

The Queue: I am 25 minutes older than Alex {WoW}

Jan 25th 2010 11:46AM I don't really notice it too much in most instances I run, heroics aren't that bad as I have shockwave to keep em from moving too much but I really hate Prince Taldarm. That sneaky $#$^@# will always try to slip around behind me and stab me in the back.... typical Elf I guess..... I find it very hard to position him and any minor adjustment will send him running around to stab me in the back again... frustrating....

You won't get a pony, but prot will get sustained DPS increase {WoW}

Jan 25th 2010 9:58AM Hmmm, based on a single fight? The spreadsheet has all ICC bosses in it (up to putricide) so I'm not sure what you mean by based on a single fight (links to other bosses are on the bottom of the sheet). It has the top 120 parses for each of the tanks (cept DK as mentioned before). I would say that your parse is skewed as it is a single run so it would be a single data point. You wouldn't get a side by side comparison of the dps on festergut say because one tank is going to have more uptime on the debuff/buff. And a fight like rotface is impossible to compare dps from a single run as he is single tanked. A single run would be hard to compare for deathwhisper as well since there are going to be many factors that affect your dps (how many adds you tank, which side, which adds are turned and such).

A larger population size is almost always better when it comes to these things... :)

Jan 25th 2010 12:52AM You need to go to tankspot and read up on the tank dps for all ICC fights and examine how prot warriors are consistantly 1k dps below the other tanks. And that's leaving out DK tanks who I expect to be one of the highest dps tanks. At least I seem to do more w/ my DK tank than my warrior tank at similar gear levels.

The link is here, altho I don't know if wow.com will block it.. heh...

In other words, don't take one log of one pally tank and say that it is a good example... honestly 3.9k for a whole run is solid for a tank, on my warrior I couldn't touch that....

Use brute force, Luke {WoW}

Dec 23rd 2009 10:37PM Heh, I used to go into heroics w/ my block set w/ around 2.5k block value and for the most part unhittable, but only 28kish health... I took very little damage (really only magical since i was blocking everything) but did have some dps complain that I was too low....
