Dec 23rd 2009 3:54PM This is how I know I've been soloing too long; I hear everyone talking about DPS doing things that HORRIFY me. I guess I've never gotten used to the luxury of a tank or healer helping me.
I'm an affliction lock, and in the few instances I've run (yay, dungeon finder!)I've been surprised and pathetically grateful to get heals. If I take damage because I didn't dodge the fire/poison/thing dropping from the sky, that's MY fault, even if I didn't know about it beforehand.
If I pull aggro of the tank, a) i wasn't paying attention to my threat, or b) the tank died because i screwed up in some other way, like not pulling trash aggro off the healer if the tank is busy (it's better if I die than the healer, and it can give the tank a few seconds to threat). I pretty much think of myself as my own little 5-man (life tap myself for mana, haunt for heal, blueberry to tank, dots to dps) so if I die in a instance, it's my own damn fault.
I'm sure this is somewhat immature of me; there are lots of fights where the mechanics mean there is nothing you can do, even if you're being a good little DPS and not standing in fire and watching my threats (being transported UNDER the dragon in my first run of VH last night freaked me out) but overall, I can't believe DPS (and my fellow locks) are so selfish that they've given us a bad rep.
I'm trying, guys. At least one more little lock out there at least would rather we all make it and won't take the tank and healer for granted. Gnomescout honor.

Nov 23rd 2009 11:10AM Oooo, I want one.
Oct 28th 2009 2:08PM AH, I didn't know that. Ok, question redacted. :D
Oct 28th 2009 1:58PM Does the Enchanter get a skillpoint for the auto-DEing if he would have gotten one by DEing it himself? I hope so!
Yes, I know a lot of people are at max skill, but for those people still leveling up, this seems like a bit of a cheat. The DEer doesn't get his skill point, and the people still get the mats...
Aug 17th 2009 5:55PM Correction: any sexiness YOU felt were destroyed by the dudes and the fat blond chick.
If one likes dudes (Zaboo is actually kinda cute in this, though I want to punt him most of the time), or large blond women (I think Clara is rather hot, ftiw) , then the sexiness went on unabated.
Just because you don't think they're sexy doesn't mean they aren't. Sexy is not a universal constant, thank goodness.

And if I'm a girl that geeks out IRL and twitter about my D&D (actually, d10 since we're playing Exalted right now) dice, does that make me any less of a real geek? Is blogging about being a geek ANTIgeek?
F.D. feels like a real geek to me. Not just someone trying to make a quick buck on a subculture, but an actual geek.
The fact that she's smokin' in this video... doesn't make her less of a geek. The fact that she twitters... doesn't make her less of a geek. The fact that she's a GEEK makes her a geek.
Aug 13th 2009 4:24PM Aggreed. My guild is too small to raid anything over 10 man, and we struggle with that (we have exactly 10 active players - it's a RL friends guild.)
I'm not leaving my guild just to raid, but I'd like to try it out... but all the pugs I see nowadays require the achievements and gear OVER the instance they're running. I'm sure they want a quick, painless run for badges... but it makes it hard for us nooblets to ever leave the kiddy pool.
We need a Mentor system; a really good raider that will vouch for a noobie, with the understanding that even if the noob has read the fight, watched the fight online... they've never DONE the fight.
