Patch 3.3 PTR: Shadowmourne revealed {WoW}

Nov 18th 2009 9:03PM Holy shit!

I do want! This is incredible.... better than I had ever hoped.

It's a pity that it's only available to 25 man guilds... /looksat10manguild... /cry

Two Bosses Enter: Keristrasza vs. Ley-Guardian Eregos {WoW}

Nov 5th 2009 8:34PM It's gotta be Keri. She hates *HATES* the Blues and Eregos fights like a bad, bad elemental shaman. Stand and shoot.

Keri can let intense cold stack up, chains him, breath on him, melee him. Oh she would snap him.

Patch 3.3 PTR: Craftable nature resist gear {WoW}

Oct 2nd 2009 12:43AM I am 100% certain it is placeholder stats. 6 XXXXX Orbs to craft something required by the whole raid? I call shennanigans.

Patch 3.3 PTR: Minor Warrior changes {WoW}

Oct 1st 2009 9:28PM Minor changes? Minor changes?

These are game breakingly massive changes! They're intense, an outrage even! Why, Victory Rush available to low level Warriors is brilliant! I've leveled 2 (yes, 2) Warriors to 80 (before you ask, same faction, same server... I know, I know) and wish I had had Victory Rush.

Brilliant change IMO.

Damage Shield change, less than brilliant, but mine never bloody crit anyways :( very minor nerf.

From our readers: Always a DPSer, never a tank {WoW}

May 18th 2009 8:19PM It is actually really hard to find a guild as a tank, for one reason and one reason only: Most of the time a guild is built around a solid tank!

Almost never a solid tank leaves a solid guild, due to RL or drama, and opens a spot for you. Generally, you'll have to go backwards in progression if you want to get a spot as a tank. I have to agree with the replies above, run as dps, let them know you're interested in tanking, have a tank set etc.

My guild recently promoted one of our alts to tank over his hunter dps. The reason: He worked hard at it. His tank gear was well progressed, the best craftables he could get, he pugged his arse off to get the gear to put him at a level with our existing tanks, even out-gearing 2 of them. He started at the bottom of the rung, tanking adds on boss fights, dual speccing into dps for single tank boss fights, 2 months later (about 6 months after his tank hit 80) he is leading one of our 10 man Ulduar groups as it's main tank and has a guaranteed spot in our 25's as 3rd tank, even tanking some 25 man Ulduar bosses.

It's a long, long journey, but if you want to tank, you have to go through it.

Or the easy way is to find a guild that's less progressed than you (if you're Naxx ready, they're doing Heroics, if you're Ulduar ready, they're doing Naxx etc.) and latch onto them.

Neither is what you want, you won't get what you want.
