The Queue: I don't know {WoW}

Sep 13th 2011 11:22AM Spirit Wolves. Chain Lightning. Far Sight. Earthquake.

Which of these spells should he have healed with, exactly?

Raid Rx: Reforging tools and concepts for healers {WoW}

Sep 2nd 2011 4:43PM There's an addon that is very helpful to wowreforge AND mrrobot users, Reforgerade (not to be confused with reforgerator). This addon lets you copy the data from the website and paste it into a window while in Wow and it will parse it out and automatically do all of the reforges for you, very useful when you get a new piece and it tells you you need to shift around 6 different items.

Raid Rx: Reforging tools and concepts for healers {WoW}

Sep 2nd 2011 4:41PM I'm not very familiar w/ but so far I'm seeing two differences. One is that askmrrobot only lets me put caps on certain things, whereas wowreforge is much more customizable. Also, wowreforge doesn't require you to use the optimizer, it will let you play around with it and pick the reforges yourself and seeing what they come out to.

Raid finder coming in patch 4.3 {WoW}

Aug 17th 2011 11:55AM Yeah cause now that you don't have to sit around in trade and can wait to find a group from anywhere, you are much more locked down, clearly. I know I used to get all my vanilla groups while sitting in westfall.

People aren't in cities more because of LFD and LFR, they are in trade more cause there's more people playing at max level, and there's less farming required to raid >_> you are falling for the post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.

The OverAchiever: The silver coins of the Dalaran fountain {WoW}

Jul 21st 2011 5:57PM Make a macro that does /cast fishing over and over, or whatever it is. Its slightly annoying, because you will get an error message every time you case, but on the plus side it will make it so that you always get a successful cast off.

Addon Spotlight: Automate your life with some automatic addons {WoW}

Jul 21st 2011 5:47PM I use crapaway to sell all my greys, and i think repair_fu (a fubar addon) to autorepair (it also lets you repair with guild money). I don't have anything for auto-releasing when i die.

About the Bloggers: Alex Ziebart {WoW}

Jul 13th 2011 10:35AM Eh I think that was just an unfortunate side-effect of prioritizing gameplay over everything else. If you go back and play the WC3 mission for that, they basically needed SOMETHING for her to do after deciding to split from Malfurion, and fighting guards was the only sensible thing they could have her do.

Plus if Maeiev had just stepped aside and allowed it, it would have undermined her character quite a bit.

Jul 13th 2011 10:30AM #1 rule for writing a bad guy: The bad guy should THINK he's the good guy. The old gods utterly fail at this, since everyone involved is just about chaos for chaos's sake. Just going crazy/getting corrupted is just an easy cop-out. One of the reasons I liked the Defias storyline, too. Also: Algalon :)

Shifting Perspectives: Haste and you -- a guide to not wanting to kill yourself {WoW}

Jul 6th 2011 1:54AM 2 q's for you:

1) Any ideas for exactly how much int you would be willing to drop to get the 9th breakpoint? I see this question asked all the time, some people say they'd drop 200 int, others don't seem so hot on it.

2) I have heard claims that you need a hair more than 2005 due to "rounding errors"? I've heard 2010 is what you should really aim for, but I was able to test 2009 and it worked fine. Any idea whats going on here?
