The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Comes The Cataclysm {WoW}

Aug 29th 2009 4:41AM Just gotta say, I love your writing style. Keep up the good work and write a book :P

Breakfast Topic: Have you ever actually met a GM in-game? {WoW}

Jun 7th 2009 8:15AM After messing up with the tier helme in Onyxia's lair, we contacted a GM to move the item to the char who should have recieved it. That he did, as a panda cub, running around in the lair, made us giggle. And seeing we were on a RP server several tried to go pat it :P

Breakfast Topic: Which role is the hardest? {WoW}

May 31st 2009 3:17PM (don't know if this will turn out correct, but it's a reply to altree496)

Hi. I never wrote that healers need to worr yabout aggro, if you believe I did I suggest you read it again.

The example I used with "buffing someone", was just an example. There's several things during combat which can be done if only given a slight moment, and giving a buff to someone (perhaps a tank that's been combatressed, or someone who has misclicked their buffs) is one of them. Another might be throwing in a hand of salvation to help some poor DPS reduce their aggro.

It's a given fact that buffs should be done before any fight, but there are situations where a refreshed buff will benefit the fight. Sometimes it might even be the little extra that gets you through it.

All in all I think you've not taken your time reading what I wrote, nor understood it, and in all fairness this was my opinion on the subject of what's "harder" in wow, and opinions are subjective.

Breakfast Topic: Which role is the hardest? {WoW}

May 31st 2009 8:24AM I myself play both tanking, healing and ranged/melee DPS, and to be honest it's the healing that's the hardest, or more stressful.

As tank, you need to keep aggro and in my case (paladin) keep my holy shield up and use my taunting abilities should a mob run loose. Healing on the other hand relies so much on tanks being able to keep their migration abilities up, DPS understanding the concept of "not standing in things", and other factors like sudden spike damage to the tank (often due to some ability you cannot predict). And I think most healers have experienced the times when you think you can relax for a split second, to perhaps buff up someone who lost their buffs, only to find that the tank dies because you weren't paying attention just then.

Whenever I've tanked or healer too often, some raw DPSing always picks me back up ;)
