The Light and How to Swing It: The importance of optimal play {WoW}

Jan 7th 2012 10:18AM Exactly. I am specced into 1 point in Holy Ground as well, for mana. But I sacrificed Pursuit of Justice completely... I mean, the movement speed increase is a waste IMO (use your eyes/ears/DBM and you're good to avoid pretty much everything) and I haven't noticed many (if any) Stun/Fear/Immobilize effects in DS. So 2nd point from it went into Grand Crusader. So I'm 0/33/8. Am I suboptimal? Getting close to 20k dps on Ultraxion with ilvl 390 and being 7/8 normal.

Blizzard releases third-party API usage policy {WoW}

Dec 15th 2011 10:27AM Wow, this policy is one of the stupidest I have seen.

Does that mean that WoWProgress has to change the name?
Does that mean that MrRobot needs to pull their app from the AppStore (or make it free) and release its source code?
Does that mean there's absolutely no incentive for creating an application (be it web app or mobile app) for WoW? I can't even show ads, how will I pay for my hosting?!?

Blizzard should be thankful for creators of addons such as DBM which are often a must in a raiding environment. I'm pretty sure that if not for DBM, Omen, Grid, Healbot, Decursive and various other addons the game would be less playable and had quite a few less subscribers. And same goes for creators of Wowhead, WoWProgress, Curse, MrRobot and some other. They add so much value on top of the game and they make the game so much better. Blizzard should be thankful to them instead of denying them money they deserve.

The Light and How to Swing It: Tanking the three intro heroic Firelands bosses {WoW}

Nov 4th 2011 1:37PM We use an "exploit" or smth for Shannox. Well, it's been there for ages and hasn't been fixed yet, so I assume Blizzard accepts it or doesn't care.

Basically when Riplimb is running toward the boss with the spear I start to kite the boss. But not by moving backwards, but strafing in a wide circle (30-40 yards radius). I get the same speed as I would be running with my back to the boss, but still can block his attacks. Riplimb seems to be unable to give the spear back to boss when he's on the move. So I keep the boss moving until my and the other tank's stacks fall off and stop, so Riplimb gives the spear back. And repeat the process again.

This method isn't fully reliable, as the bug seems a bit random and sometimes Riplimb can give the spear back. Or sometimes Shannox stops by himself to throw a trap. But it works like 75% of the time.

We're working on Majordomo now and running into issues with DPS. We're gonna try with more cat phases and less Scorpion.

Ask Mr. Robot mobile app released {WoW}

Jun 18th 2011 11:11AM "Unfortunately, the use of Blizzard IP is prohibited without a license and you can’t use any Blizzard IP commercially."

I recommend to read through this topic:

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2416115611

As one poster there says:

"Well, the sites you have listed actually don't charge for Blizzard IP. Wowhead offers custom graphics, removal of adds, custom avatars, but anything and everything related to WoW is accessible for free. Curse.com offers extra simultaneous downloads and a few other features for premium service. Again not Blizzard IP. Wowstead same thing, custom themes and added features but not Blizzard IP."

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want this to happen to MrRobot. I use their site and I love it. I think the app is a good way for them to get some money for the hard work they've put into. However, I am interested in this topic since I had few ideas to develop wow related apps, but the fact that I can't charge for them prevents me from starting coding (gotta eat sometime! :D). I also feel it would be unfair for other app developers who's apps have been pulled from the app store for similar reasons, to allow MrRobot charge for their app (unfortunately).

Unfortunately I don't think there has been any clear statement by Blizzard of what we can and cannot do. I mean, you could read through ToS/ToU/EULA, but who does that :D There's not even ToU for their website API... :/

Ask Mr. Robot mobile app released {WoW}

Jun 18th 2011 6:47AM Other than that I love the website and been using it quite a lot ;)

Ask Mr. Robot mobile app released {WoW}

Jun 18th 2011 6:46AM I wonder when will Blizzard send them C&D letters since they're using Blizzard assets and selling them. Remember the original mobile armory that was made by some fan? It costed like $.99 and also had to be pulled from the app store.

The Queue: Alcohol-free zone {WoW}

Jun 15th 2011 12:02PM Is Zandalari random hc still rewarding 140 VP in 4.2?

Breakfast Topic: Getting a certain achievement down {WoW}

May 18th 2011 8:40AM I got it by accident on my tank pala last weekend when jumping to Al'akir platform in Throne of the Four Winds :D Didnt take any dmg at all, but got the achi :D

Breakfast Topic: Thoughts on legendary weapons {WoW}

May 16th 2011 10:03AM IMO, what Blizzard should do is to make Legendaries scale with the level. Maybe limit that to only those that were obtained while the tier it was in was the current tier of raiding (ie. Warglaives obtained during BC: Black Temple era (or even whole BC era) would scale, but those obtained today wouldn't). So you wouldn't need to replace it ever again (since it's a legendary weapon, what could be better? blue drop from hc deadmines better than a weapon that Kil'jaden used?) And the limit would ensure that ppl wouldn't go back to farming legendaries now.

The Queue: Across the Pond {WoW}

Mar 1st 2011 11:06AM A philosophical/technical question: is there a mob spawned when there's no one to observe it?

It came to me when I was farming archaeology few nights ago and kept returning to the same spot from time to time which was patrolled by a bear. Made me wonder if the bear exists when I'm not near him... and if not, shouldn't it be thankful that I visit it and therefore push it to existence? Then why is it trying to kill me?
