12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway: BlizzCon Exclusive Murkablo {WoW}

Dec 15th 2011 7:55PM Mrgle rrgle rrgle!

Reader UI of the Week: Raiding without the clutter {WoW}

Nov 29th 2011 8:04PM Genuinely love this UI, two questions:

1. Do you use a Razer Naga, because the bars are set up similarly to mine (specifically for the Naga).


2. Is there any chance you can upload this to Curse or Wowinterface, because I'd love to try it out but am awful at all the tweaky little bits that you seem to have done so well with!

Spiritual Guidance: What Alliance race is the best for shadow priests? {WoW}

Jun 23rd 2011 5:48AM Dwarf Priest since Vanilla, because all the Alliance priests those days were Dwarves. Other than a brief dalliance with Horde when Cobble died and became an Undead angel of vengeance, smashing up the BGs, he'll be a Dwarf til the day WoW dies.

I do quite fancy the idea of race change, but after 5 years of being a Dwarf, it'd just be wrong. :(

Spiritual Guidance: 8 reasons why your shadow priest DPS sucks {WoW}

Jun 9th 2011 6:13AM Mana issues are pretty heavy-going at low gear levels, but please do persevere - when you're loaded up with decent gear (fully heroiced) and you have a couple of decent trinkets you should have no problem at all, especially when you factor in archangel and your shadowfiend. SF should be used early because your crits will reduce the cooldown, likewise with archangel, although more because that has a fixed CD.

Bear in mind that many of your mana return abilities are based on your maximum intellect, so once you're hit capped, intellect tends to be king! Also don't forget return from SW:D damage, plus mana return from killing a mob with SW:D.

If you're still struggling with mana once your gear is at reasonable levels, I'm afraid you need to look at your playstyle and rotation! Feel free to post your armoury link if you'd like more specific advice, of course.

Cobble - Lightbringer EU

Remote guild chat feature bugged for authenticator ranks {WoW}

Apr 21st 2011 9:11PM Hey Blizzard, remember us uropeeuns? Here be dragons! We make up like a third or more of your playerbase. Could we get included in one of these rollouts for a change?

WoW mobile guild chat released, free for a limited time {WoW}

Apr 19th 2011 4:12AM You haven't actually mentioned whether this is US-only or not. I'm on Lightbringer-EU and while I don't have an iPhone, I do have an iPod Touch I could test this out on.

Win an iPad during Blizzard's Core Hound Pup Adoption Campaign {WoW}

Jan 28th 2011 6:45AM Easy enough to supply a European model iPad instead, and as far as i'm aware the 3g ones have been freely available for some time. At least I see people using them on the tube and at stations fairly frequently.

I know they're an American company, but part of the reason they're so profitable is the European market after all.

Win an iPad during Blizzard's Core Hound Pup Adoption Campaign {WoW}

Jan 27th 2011 9:30PM I can understand it from WoW Insider, but it's a little frustrating that Blizzard themselves have excluded us Europeans once again. Yes yes, different countries, different rules, but could they not have excluded the awkward countries (as they appear to have done with some American states) rather than the entire continent?

15 Minutes of Fame: Premade players QueueQ for battlegrounds wins {WoW}

Oct 14th 2010 5:17AM WTB European equivalent - this sounds like an awesome venture, I would most definitely consider moving off Maelstrom EU to join a large PvP (BGs) guild.

Around Azeroth: Beyond here lies nothing {WoW}

Dec 13th 2009 7:14PM That picture and it's accompanying blurb makes me feel a little sad, tbh. One day I'll be in the same position, logging off for the last time, and I'm not sure what I'd do with my toons. The thought of that druid sat up in the trees, all on his own for the rest of WoW-time makes me feel a bit lonely. :-/
