Oct 11th 2009 9:47PM I agree completely, Kolyarut. And it's a game; it's supposed to be fun. Wiping repeatedly on Yogg-Saron when the guild could beat up ToC doesn't seem to make much sense. I find spending a night wiping on a boss and learning a lot in the process (*cough* Archimonde *cough)to be worthwhile and fulfilling, but why should a guild spend ALL the lockout time on this when there is other new content that they can explore? For the sake of chronology? Please. My guild still does Naxx a decent amount of times, partly for alts but also because it's just a big raiding social gathering.
Oct 6th 2009 7:35AM Lol brilliant! On a more serious note, I think PoM is just fine :-D
Mar 21st 2009 7:25PM Thing is, those priests are right. The spirit stat is wasted on you pre-Patch 3.1, so as a mage, you're taking gear that has less use for you than it does for them. It would be like them rolling on gear with hit rating. Sure, now you have a rebuttal, but a rather weak one; if a piece of gear has 40 spirit, you get 10 additional crit rating. That's pretty damn weak.
Mar 10th 2009 3:49PM This would make sense, if it wasn't for the fact that Blizzard wanted to make raiding optimal for smaller guilds. Classic WoW was even worse about this, but back in BC, there was no 10-man after Kara, until ZA was introduced. There are a good number of smaller guilds that do not intend to recruit in order to grow to a size that can handle 25-mans. A lot of people like the small-guild feel but also like to raid. That's why they are two separate progression paths. Blizzard made 10-man Ulduar as the next step for 10-man raiding guilds. The guilds doing 25-mans? Well, keep doing 25-mans; that was the intent. The 10-man raids are not aimed at 25-man raiding guilds, yet I see many people not understanding why these separate raid sizes were implemented.
Mar 10th 2009 3:41PM That was meant to be in response to the question of Vrykul as ancestors of dwarves.
Mar 10th 2009 3:40PM It's not dwarves that descended from the Vrykul. It's humans. Makes sense, considering that the Vrykul just look like bigger, hairier (and uglier) humans.
Mar 10th 2009 3:27PM Um, did you pay attention? Using a DK opened up the opportunity to make fun of that very thing, then being able to insert the quote, "Stupid is as stupid does." It was IRONIC that a DK was used as the main character for this anniversary. What is it with a lot of WoWInsider posters being so damn technical?
