LIES! I'm a neutral party (ie Shaman) who reads both this mage and warlock column, and I disagree with your assessment of this column. Sure, they're different, but that's a GOOD thing. Like SarahTheGnome said, just because AB is filled with humorous jabs at Warlocks doesn't mean this column needs to be too. Otherwise all columns would be the same writing style and then you'd get bored.
Secondly, this column ALSO has lots of knowledge about it's class. Did you miss the -weeks- of discussion of different warlock specs? Discussing rotation, overall dps, etc? Since I don't play a warlock it may not of hit home as much for me, but I think it was a well-thought out experiment, and it covered glyphs as well. Plus, this column cover professions in only a week, which is nice, and came to the same conclusion as AB did (which took like... 3 columns to do it).
While I wouldn't mind a little more acknowledgement that AB does indeed have a seering hatred of warlocks, your articles are just fine, I think. Don't listen (too much) to those people below complaining about things being boring and not relavent. Sometimes you just have to write an article about things they don't care about. Besides, I'm pretty sure -I- couldn't blog about a relavent shaman topic every week, so I think you're doing a good job. :D
Apr 20th 2009 10:33AM Hehe, I agree completely on what you say about this column- I too am a non-mage main (Shaman, to be exact) who reads this column diligently while other ones I may not read all the way through. Why? Because of the witty style, and perhaps the Warlock bashing. Rivalries are always fun. :D
Sadly my little mage alt is only 32 or so. But because I read this I'm able to give out some advice to our raiding mages!
Keep up the good work, yo!
Apr 7th 2009 9:49AM While $32 is pricey, I don't think the price will drop that much when they make it paperback. WoW books generally cost more than the $6-7 range of regular paperbacks. I would guess either around $10 or even $16 if they do a larger format. And if it was $16, $32 isn't that bad for a collectors edition.
Mar 26th 2009 3:40PM Well, it sort of make sense for us Tauren, since we have hooves. Those are good for walking 'barefoot', so to speak, since they're tough and such. Would just have to worry about a rock getting stuck in them every now and then. Plus you have that larger ankle space that needs protecting, since apparently all the pants are too small. :D
But trolls... don't have hooves. I guess the bottom of their feet are too tough, or no shoes fit their feet whatsoever.
Mar 25th 2009 3:32PM Yeah! Us fangirls also have lots of crazy themepark ideas!
Mar 24th 2009 2:02PM I love the style! It totally reminds me of Onion articles, and if there isn't much to say, than I'd prefer a fake news article style than just a couple links in a blah blah paragraph. Much more amusing.
