Drama Mamas: Tank entitlement {WoW}

Aug 6th 2010 6:48PM "TE has been a problem since the dungeon finder first appeared on the scene, and it's not going away any time soon. Though both tanks and healers are in demand and have shorter queues, tanks are the ones who set the pace of the PUG and therefore can make or break the experience."

Accurate, from the onset. You can discuss how much it frustrates you until you're blue in the face, it changes nothing. No repercussions for the tank dropping a sub-par group. You can't participate at all without a tank present. There is nothing you can do to change this, except wait.

And wait, and wait, and wait, for a replacement XD

Enjoy your queue

Drama Mamas: Tank entitlement {WoW}

Aug 6th 2010 5:31PM Incorrect, it does not work that way. If the healer goes oom, you can smooth over a bad pull by spending all of your cooldowns, self healing and drinking a potion while the dps fires off world-war 3 all around you.

If the tank isn't ready, you're all paying repair bills.

My lead. Wow is easy. Don't practice healing inside of my run.

Drama Mamas: Tank entitlement {WoW}

Aug 6th 2010 4:51PM "I don't have to wait in the queue, therefore I have the power to quit any group I want to instantly join another."

This is exactly right. I only have to wait in queue for 5 seconds, so I'm not putting up with your crap for ten.

Also, just rolled a hunter, and I've taken it through about 30ish random dungeons on my way to level 75 (as of yesterday). I have had ONE bad experience with a tank, and ONE bad experience with a healer, on the same run (they were guild members). Having farmed heroics on my Warrior tank hundreds of times over, I can attest to the sad fact that stupid dps'ers are much more common than stupid tanks.

I am a good tank, smart with cooldowns, attentive to my group and my surroundings. I'll keep the party alive on facepulls that should result in wipes. But sometimes, sometimes I get really tired of cleaning up everyone's messes.

I can't justify what those crap tanks in the letter did to the newbie healer (bad form). But it still boils down to the fact that you need me more than I need you. Follow my lead or I will split. Or just roll your own tank.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Lessons from Trial of the Crusader/Grand Crusader {WoW}

Oct 2nd 2009 7:49PM The best warriors out there will always intervene to save a clothie. Hell, if I'm off tank, and it's a slow phase of a certain fight for me, I'll intervene the warlock to help him shave off some threat. Intervene does that too.

Patch 3.3 PTR: Minor Warrior changes {WoW}

Oct 2nd 2009 12:00PM If they wanted to make leveling easier for a warrior, just give them Enraged Regeneration at level ten. They don't need a gimmicky dps buff like Victory Rush, they need a way to survive pulling more than 1 mob at a time...

Upcoming mount changes {WoW}

Jun 12th 2009 2:30PM "or you simply just annoyed the hell out of the district manager enough to give you what you wanted just so you would shut up"

Complaining has a power that the downtrodden cannot comprehend.


Yes, annoyed the hell out of him would be a good way to put it.

Upcoming mount changes {WoW}

Jun 11th 2009 1:31PM "If you buy a brand new television, and then two months from then the price drops, do you go barging into the store demanding the difference? Absolutely not.

This is no different." - Reuben


Actually, you are wrong. I bought a 46" Samsung hdtv for $2,800 about a year or two ago. Three months later I'm browsing around the same store, and I see my identical model tv listed at a new (non-sale) price for $2,100. I returned with my payment receipt and demanded the difference. The sales clerk said he could not help me. The store manager said they would not return the difference. I asked for/received the phone number for the district manager. Made a phone call, discussed my point of view, received a positive credit back on my Mastercard for seven hundred dollars.

Complaining has a power that the downtrodden cannot comprehend.

I also, want my damn gold back.

Completion rates on Wrath heroics {WoW}

May 21st 2009 1:55PM I loved HoS, being a Fury warrior meant that the waves of trash mobs had to run through my whirlwinds. I felt like that event was engineered to be conquered by Fury. Heroic OC, on the other hand, I've yet to complete.

Nobody I know want's to do it.

Breakfast Topic: That spec you hate {WoW}

May 20th 2009 1:54PM I started out leveling as arms, and took arms spec all the way to 45 ish. A guildie showed me how to gear for fury spec when I said I wanted to dual wield (which was a lot of leather) back in Burning Crusade. I instantly fell in love, my warrior suddenly became the fighter that I always thought it should be. Arms forever felt like a slow, cumbersome play style since my spec change.

Tanking, was forbidden outright. Tanking felt wrong to me, like sitting on the lap of a Catholic priest.

Wrath of the Lich King hits, I grab some "offspec" tanking pieces because nobody else wants them. I run so many heroics farming badges and reputation for my dps set, that I eventually grab every tanking epic available. Our tanks leave the guild, I start practicing on trash and normal difficulty dungeons to fill the gap. Now I'm tanking Naxx-10, off tanking Naxx-25.

Dual spec's arrive, and I'm as happy as a clam (they stack!). I can tank or dps at the push of a button, I love playing my character now. My fury spec has been gutted for about 400-500 damage per second, and I don't even care. I'm told often that Arms tree is where all the big numbers are hiding, but I'm not concerned.

I pay 15 dollars a month to log in to this game and unwind. I tank when I want, dps when I want, pick herbs and go fishing. I hate arms spec, and it might be "better" right now, but I don't give a $hit.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: The Luck Of The Drop {WoW}

Apr 30th 2009 4:47PM Quoted from your post:

"The difference is that plate / warrior items are significantly more itemized than rogue items."

Where have you been for the past couple of years? Warriors have been rolling on your precious leather for dps set's as long as I have been playing.

I could care less about any argument that you could ever raise, simply because you wrote:

"The difference is that plate / warrior items are significantly more itemized than rogue items."

If warrior items were significantly more itemized than rogue items, we would never roll on rogue gear to up our dps.

Idiot.
