Are pure DPS classes really just another form of hybrid in disguise? {WoW}

Feb 27th 2012 1:33PM I can't tell you how many times in DS I wish I had two gear sets on my mage. One for fire (crit) and one for arcane (haste).

To answer Legs question, because its harder than building that healing off-set. That healing mail piece that just dropped? Resto shammy already has it. So it goes for DE or an off-set. That cloth DPS piece that just dropped? Mage already has it. But the warlock or shadow priest needs it for main set. Often DPS pieces have to drop 3-4 times before it goes to DE or off-set. This means it takes 3-4 times as long before a DPS off-set is even worth it.

The Lawbringer: A very special cake {WoW}

Feb 3rd 2012 5:23PM I agree, great article. Now my big question is whether or not Luotian's main is a mage, cuz we all know how much mages love cake (and pie, and strudel...). Because that would turn this cake from awesome to epic!

Dragon Soul normal and heroic nerf begins Jan. 31 {WoW}

Jan 18th 2012 9:55PM Just goes to show that the true reason for the nerfs in ICC, FL, et al was NOT to allow people to see the content.

The LFR was built, and by Blizzard's own admission, designed for people to see the content.

So what's the true reason behind the nerfs?

My opinion (and it's just an opinion) is that the nerfs have been and are currently meant to feed the epeens of the weaker players. People want to feel like they are "good" at the game that they are playing. No one likes to play a game where they feel inferior or weak. By giving the nerfs, it makes the weaker players feel stronger and therefore continue to play (and pay their monthly subscription).

5 ways to keep your tank happy in 5-man heroics {WoW}

Jan 11th 2012 8:38PM No doubt, as you have predicted, your post will turn grey. If you want tank gear, queue as the tank. Doing anything other than what Olivia has described when tank gear drops makes you a complete and total asshat.

Gold Capped: The art of negotiating for luxury goods {WoW}

Dec 27th 2011 12:42AM This article really peaked my interest as I have recently (since 4.3 dropped) gotten to a position where I can look at items like this with more than a wishful heart. Looking through some of the TCG/rare items forums, such as the one linked by Sbao, often times prices are listed as a certain amount of gold or X "vials." Such as: WTS Magic Rooster Egg 300k or 11 Vials. What vials are they referring to? Vial of the Sands? Why would they use that as a currency instead of using gold?

Gold Capped: The art of negotiating for luxury goods {WoW}

Dec 27th 2011 12:34AM I think one of the points of the article is that you can't really create a set price on items like this. If you are in a position to buy an item like this, congratulations. You are officially the "1%" of WoW. Another point of the article is don't listen to the "99%" because they don't really have a clue what the hell they are talking about.

The Queue: Happy Winter Veil! {WoW}

Dec 25th 2011 2:08PM Killing Deathwing felt so underwhelming because nearly everyone was able to kill him in faceroll mode on the LFR.

My favorite moment was after having killed Deathwing, a little rogue in the group said in the raid channel, "That's it?" Yup man, you just killed the big baddie of Cataclysm the first week the fight was available with very little struggle. Pretty epic, huh?

The post-patch 4.3 rare gem market {WoW}

Dec 13th 2011 9:03AM Good god, WTB new comment system. Nice comment fail there WoW Insider. To finish my sentence:

If that first slot has less than 5 ore, you'll get the error you mentioned. Move that stack of less than 5 ore to the last slot in your bags and try it again.

Dec 13th 2011 8:59AM I had the same problem at first. From what I understand, panda scans your bags from the first slot to the last slot, looking for ore to prospect. If that first slot has
