Breakfast Topic: What enemy would you turn traitor to join? {WoW}

Sep 9th 2010 9:30AM I would definitely be a member of the Scarlet Onslaught. They were just so desperate to have their victory at any cost. Their blind faith and devotion are incredibly interesting to me. Fighting for king and country is awesome, but fighting for your lost home, lost people, and lost past is quite moving.

Will Druids be getting reliable indoor CC in Wrath? {WoW}

Oct 20th 2007 5:50PM @ 4 "So....the entire shaman community has been asking for CC since pre-BC, and we can't have it, but some druid mentions it in passing on the forums, for BOOMKIN spec, and the devs are all for it? What the hell!?"

I'm sorry, but I have both an elemental shaman and a balance druid. I know the issues of both well. However, this isn't just some druid who "mentions it in passing". This has been requested for a very, very, very long time; this isn't new in the slightest.

But I can tell by your comment that you believe that balance druids don't deserve anything of the such, that shamans should get everything first. So it's okay for shamans to ask for stuff, yet druids should not? A very poor argument on your part.

The continuing saga of Druid consumables {WoW}

Apr 12th 2007 9:09PM I fail to see how it would be a balance issue if a druid in a feral form could use potions. Every other class can, so it puts the druid at a disadvantage currently. It's not as if the feral forms are so amazingly overpowered that everything would be tipped into the druid's favour. Bear form does laughable damage and cat form has no survivability.

As for the silly argument about bears and cats having no thumbs... stop trying to use realism in this game. How can a warrior with a massive shield and a sword as tall as he is use a potion suddenly while fighting, say, a dragon that is several times larger. By all accounts, that dragon should have just crushed him before he could even use a potion.

But I wouldn't expect Blizzard to understand. They've never understood how to develop druids, let alone hybrids in general.

Druid flight form FAQ {WoW}

Feb 1st 2007 9:42PM Just to make it a little more known, crusader aura does not affect flight form, nor do any other speed enhancements.

And while people whine about flight form, let's consider the fact that other classes got abilities that can be used outside of Outland. Druids also got two abilities that are effectively useful if you are not feral, one healing spell that has odd stacking, and a banish-like ability that lasts for ten seconds with a 1.5 second cast time.

Skype announces video calls for the Mac {TUAW.com}

Universal Binary of Flash Player 9 released {TUAW.com}

Aug 12th 2006 6:07PM I've been wanting to update to the latest version, but all Flash content breaks with this update. At first, it was having both Flash and Flip4Mac WMV at once that broke all Flash files, but now it breaks consistently regardless of whether Flip4Mac is present or not.

Reported this to Adobe back in an earlier round of beta testing, but nothing came of it, I see. I haven't even seen others mention the issue. I'm apparently unique!

And don't get me wrong, but I'm fairly certain that this Universal Binary "Intel-based Macs" thing is simply a misunderstanding of what UB software does. I've heard plenty of people say that it works on PPC-based hardware without a flaw.
