Win a pony from WoW.com {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 9:25PM I like big butts and I cannot lie, You other brothers can't deny,

when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist....

Breakfast Topic: If you could have any ability in WoW {WoW}

Mar 21st 2010 9:33AM Enchanting

Cops with extra armor on their chests.
Marthon Runners with a little extra run speed on their shoes.
Imagine School kids paying a mint for you to enchant their books with intellect.

It'd be so sweet. I'd enchant my remote with mongoose so I could channel surf like a pro.

Will WoW ever have a 'DPS to heal' model? {WoW}

Mar 10th 2010 8:39PM I always thought a paladin WOULD play like this.

You know, like DPSing like ret. And then if the raid is dying could pop something similar to a priests divine hymn.

Personally, I think blizzard could have done more with hybrid classes other than offer us talent trees for either tanking, DPS, or healing. They could have integrated them to become... omg... a hybrid class! Where they could semi fit other roles.

I mean, it's not completely unfathomable to have a healer dishing out DPS (like a passive proc spell). Or a DPS being emergency tank, or having higher STAM just so they wouldn't need to be healed as often.

There would be an incentive for hybriding too. Just as an example.

A normal priest heals for 1000
A hybrid shaman heals for 700 but deals dps of like 500. Giving an overall HIGHER benefit, but generally lacking in specialty in one field.

This is somewhere I think blizzard had the initial idea of hybrids like this, but discovered it was too much trouble and too much math and made pallys just suitable for all 3 roles instead of integrating.

Mastery System Preview {WoW}

Mar 8th 2010 9:44PM Is anyone else getting.... a hhhhaarrrddd on? This mastery stuff is just so bombing!

Even though one would think the mastery system would confine people to one tree for "dominant" strategies (read: all in holy or all in disc) it might actually encourage semi-hybrid in tree builds.

Like I could imagine a holy priest to be reluctant in investing disc tree because the passive absorption would be a waste of talent points because holy priests are going to waste time throwing around shields. But if you could imagine that there are some sweet talent points in disc that the holy priest still wanted, maybe in disc there is a talent to make flash heals grant heals on a adjacent target or something. So a player's gonna be like... oh omg which I take? They are both so sweet.

This kind of opportunity cost juggling that's going to make people try new and different builds. I see a lot of possibilities opening up and instead of like... the 5 or 6 cookie cutter builds we have, we're gonna have like 10-20 new builds with different rotations and combinations suitable for each person's play style.

Oh I just love mastery. Blizzard has so got this idea down!

I hope to see more unique talents such as mastery granting passive proc abilities such as legendaries do.

Patch 3.3.3 PTR: Priest healing tier 10 4-piece bonus changed {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2010 12:09AM 5% of renew? That's like getting 1 extra talent point for tier 1 holy talents.

Versus,

Resetting the GCD of your most important and used spells...

Oh jesus, I'm so confused which one is better.

BlizzCon 2009: Stats vastly simplified {WoW}

Aug 22nd 2009 5:57AM I have to agree with Ashley, Isn't this game easy enough?

Theorycrafting adds another depth or layer for people to enjoy ... Although I know a lot of people welcome the changes.

That's fine, but because gear will be more normalized and more similar across the board, we will have less options and we will pretty much be all working for the same gear.

As it is now, I occasionally pass up mp5 gear because I'm a spirit priest. It makes the game more enjoyable for me to know what stats I want and it makes me a little bit more unique that I excel at maxing spirit and Intellect. I tend to prioritize the gear I want for my preference.

But now, I'm going to need all gear that has int and spirit.... and so will every other priest. Because that's all we can choose. We don't really have so many choices anymore. I don't have to think about my gear, nor about rolling need or not. Haste, mp5, and SP are gone. That's half the stats I needed to take into consideration before.

The game to me is a little more mindless... That's fine, but for those of us who REALLY enjoy theorycrafting this is a huge punch in the gut.

Chinese WoW partial relaunch pics, comparison shots of censorship {WoW}

Aug 11th 2009 3:40PM Frankly, one could make the argument that western censorship is too liberal. China is being more conservative and looking out to block negative imagery to children. Most of you are probably too young to remember, but I'm about 25and when i was a child in America almost every swear word was censored. I can't post which words because it would violate Wow.com agreements.

Now people are actually accusing China for being some sort of totalitarian iron fist oppressive government... but EVERY country has their limits. We still censor nudity. But what's wrong with nudity? It's simply humans in their natural form. Another country could argue America is stupid for censoring nudity, every country has their values (or lack thereof)

We should respect other countries value system. You know it's not just the government who wants the changes. People even who play the game might be offended by what they see too.

I studied Chinese politics for 4 years, have visited China several times and over half my friends are from Mainland china or Hong Kong. I've even met fellow importers who visit China on a Daily basis and I have a close family friend who sells software there. People who talk about Chinese government violating human rights have obviously never been there or been exposed to anything except what they believe on fox news.

China is much as a liberal country as America. You could even argue you have more rights in China than in America. When i was there, people have free reign to start any venture capital they want without the same restrictions as the United States. You can also own property of certain values without the same limiting tax rates as America. Communism is a facade in China and anyone who still believes that it is in full force must also believe that America is a full democracy. Neither is true. America is not 100% democratic and China is not 100% communist. Really some of you need to revamp your IR or Poli-sci studies.

Breakfast Topic: What do you think of region-specific pets? {WoW}

Jun 14th 2009 10:46AM While, I think it would be nice if the EU got the pets, people are forgetting that this pet comes from a company that has paid Blizzard to promote it.

Mountain Dew isn't paying Blizzard to have people not "buying" their product to reap the same benefits. Say you bought ice cream for your entire school. All of a sudden kids from a nearby school start coming over and also get the ice cream. It's not costing you extra to give them ice cream but you sort of feel like saying "Hey get out you freeloaders, this isn't meant for you".

Mountain Dew wants the people who are buying (or more importantly who will buy) their product to be playing with these items in game.

But I don't care about pets, so I don't understand why people get in a ruckus over pets to begin with....
