The Queue: Wherein The Queue has as much consistency as Smodcast {WoW}

Aug 10th 2009 11:17AM Um... jediking001? It's not a reply fail its a massive "1st post" fail, for doing it, not actually being 1st, and then getting really angry about it.


About the Tauren elevators, I've always throught that they were pulley-operated, so although it's technology it's not magic or advanced Goblin engineering.

The Queue: I don't really know what's happening here {WoW}

Breakfast Topic: Your best instance run ever {WoW}

Jul 30th 2009 11:18AM I'd have to say that my "best" instance run was one fateful day in Blackrock Depths. I had been trying for weeks to clear the dungeon, going through many lost players, overconfident tanks (this one guy claimed he could solo BRD - he was lv 63 - and thus pulled way too much and died a lot), just plain failed runs, etc. etc. etc. However, one day I was lucky enough to get into a PuG that knew what they were doing. When we got past the halfway mark (the previous fail point) I could tell we were going all the way, and when the the Emperor fell I was elated.

On an unrelated note, that was also the day I dinged 60 and reached Exalted with Stormwind. =)

Phat Loot Phriday: Petrified Ivy Sprig {WoW}

Jul 25th 2009 2:04AM I predict...

Next week, there will be a wow.com story about how Ghostcrawler finally "ponys up" (pun intended) on his pony promise.

I will hail you as the Prophet of WoW if this happens. No pressure though.

Horde vs. Alliance Tier 9 Mighty Battle! {WoW}

Jul 20th 2009 8:19PM *ahem*
Fail.

Also, you are one of the people that gives Ally side a bad rap.
Thus,
Double Fail.

Warrior Q&A Analysis {WoW}

Jul 16th 2009 5:23PM I don't know if this is a problem for lv 80 warrior tanks, but at 76 I find myself needing to Charge on every pull to jumpstart my rage pool, which often pulls more mobs than I want - or gets the DPS close enough to pull adds that I then have to run around to aggro. I've tried using my gun to pull mobs, and it is much more precise, but then I have to blow Bloodrage (which, often enough, is on cooldown because I needed Commanding beforehand) to get any DPS the first few seconds of the battle.

In other instances (I'm dual-specced) I'll see a DK Death Gripping something and pulling exactly what they want, and worse, doing more damage than I am. Am I doing something wrong, or are warriors really bad at pulling in Wrath?

Officers' Quarters: Patch 3.2 -- An officer's perspective {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2009 5:54PM Dear Blizzard,
Thanks for buffing Blacksmithing with new epic gems for our additional sockets.
Sincerely,

The Art of War(craft): Examing the Isle of Conquest, con't. {WoW}

Jun 16th 2009 1:41PM It'll be interesting to see how the Isle does in terms of imbalance - will there be a Tenacity buff, or will the faction with less just have to suck it up like in AV? I hope that Blizzard has learned by now that some servers just don't have exactly 40 (or in this case, 80) people queued up at any given time.

Anyway, I'm really excited for IoC and the vehicles therein. Hope "Soon(tm)" comes quickly!

World of Warcraft Game Fuel commercial hits the airwaves {WoW}

Jun 15th 2009 7:51PM ...?

I'm... not sure what to say. I think I just saw a Night Elf cast a *mage spell* Frostbolt that had knockback but no frost, and an Orc get matched in strength (crossing swords). Does Blizzard have any say in these commercials? And, if so, WTF???

I'd like to question who these commercials are supposed to be enticing. I for one am not closer to drinking Mtn Dew (spelling FTL) because of this commercial, and if gamers aren't the recievers of game fuel... who is?

Arcane Brilliance: Reaching the hit cap {WoW}

Jun 6th 2009 7:03PM I see what you did thar.
Hit. Cap.

Great article too. But could you get Rossi to write on this subject? My warrior is a bit lacking in Hit, where now my mage can optimize and pwn those warlocks.
