Scheduled maintenance for Tuesday, September 1st, 2009 {WoW}

Sep 1st 2009 1:27PM Please please please please please........PLEASE!

Down the portal boss once and for all! The extra time is so worth it if it kills the instance bashing. It got that you almost couldn't get in an instance on moonrunner.

YAY for *this* downtime.

Class specific buffs become craftable items {WoW}

Aug 27th 2009 3:24PM What is the point of class anymore? I think this is a horrible change and continues what seems to be Blizzard's march toward oneness. No more class discintcion. What is wrong with needing a pally, priest or shammy in a group?

I'm sorry, what was the need of this change? Is it too difficult to raid? There a shortage of toons? Was there an outcry for these buffs my the masses?

Why not just allow tri-spec? Then we can all re-roll druids and no other class will ever be needed. Ever. Sounds like fun huh!

With less distinction comes boredom to me. This also puts another nail in the coffins of priests if not the other classes.

Question: If you make a class useless and it dies in an instance, does it make a sound?

*gets off the soapbox*

Cataclysm races leaked {WoW}

Aug 10th 2009 3:24PM How is this going to work in booty bay and ratchet? How do you have goblin cities that are neutral?

Spiritual Guidance: A Lightwell primer {WoW}

Aug 10th 2009 3:20PM Er... ok.

Funny article. Yeah that's how you would use it. But seriously, who does? I dont think I have seen it in game more than a handful of times from other people and never in a useful situation, unless you consider the middle of stormwind useful.

Good luck with educating the masses. I tried it out for about 10 levels and I found it to be next to useless. I am sure there are ways to make it more useful like foofer and naix point out but in its current state it will always be a red-headed step-child.

Priest Q&A: Tackling the Shadow Priest answers {WoW}

Aug 7th 2009 10:12AM I'm not sure how to take this article. As a whole, I thought the priest Q&A was subpar. TO me, it felt like GC was rushed and didn't really a) have all that much to say and b) didnt really address the concerns of priests as a whole. I will grant that he had more to say about shadow then disc or holy though.

As far as this article goes though it really feels like Alex mostly said "I agree with GC". So I think it was mostly meh.

Personally, I think the whole class needs a redo. Priests used to be the premier healers in the game, now because of 'balance' they are not. Seems to me that the hybrid classes now outheal priests, especially in MT heals.

Then comes shadow. Shadow is fun and all but the DPS is subpar. Part of that is reliance on DoTs and the necessity to stand still to cast the one aoe we have. The utility of the SP, being mana and hp regen help, is also eclipsed by other classes.

So, why roll a priest now? we are average at everything. I think Jack-of-all-trades is pretty accurate and I think it's a shame.

Do tanks get the most out of PuGs? {WoW}

Jul 27th 2009 2:34PM As a Holy/Shadow priest, all I can say is that I believe the tank to be the most important role in the 5-man. I have been in numerous PUGs and you can tell in the first 5 minutes how it's going to go but seeing how good the tank is. They make all the difference and can compensate for many shortcomings of the other members.

I good healer is important but not as important IMHO.

GLAAD fights homophobia in online communities like WoW {WoW}

Jul 21st 2009 11:51AM When that acceptance goes against one's belief system then no, we should not accept. Still, you need to be tolerant.

GLAAD fights homophobia in online communities like WoW {WoW}

Jul 21st 2009 11:43AM Exactly!

This has very little to do with homosexuality and much more to do with an agenda. That was the point of my previous post as well.

If you think that is BS ask yourself why this article came out on maintenance day.

GLAAD fights homophobia in online communities like WoW {WoW}

Jul 21st 2009 11:20AM Reading the editor's note kind of disgusts me personally. You do not see editor's notes to be civil and on topic on any of the other articles do you?

Secondly, I agree with Knob. This is a self-righteous play on the part of the organization. What's next? Is the ACLU going to sue people in barrens chat? Are we now, God forbid, going to see Jessie Jackson making WOW commercials?

Would any of these groups be worried if you were defaming roman catholics? Yeah right! It's in poor taste to be discriminatory to gays, but feel free to bash non-chic groups like catholics, fat old white guys etc...

Intolerance may be foul but so is shoving tolerance down the throats of the masses.

Hopefully, this post has been on topic enough not to get me banned, however un-PC my opinion may be.

World of Warcraft on Windows 7 RC {WoW}

May 29th 2009 4:10PM I run wow on a box with the Phenom II 940 quad with 4GB ram and a 1GB nvidia 9800 card running vista ultimate. I never have any issues whatsoever with stability and I have FPS in WOW anywhere from 41fps at the low end to upwards of 100fps.

Dual monitor is nice too. Got wowwiki in one and WOW in the other.
