The Light and How to Swing It: A little less hybrid {WoW}

Nov 8th 2009 1:43AM I dunno about content in WotLK, but at least in BC... I used to be able to sit in my Holy pally spec (with Holy PvP gear)... and both Tank *AND* Heal in instances...

...Or else, switch to Prot spec (for those hard instances) and wear the same PvP holy gear, and out DPS one or two of the DPSers...

Like I said, I don't know how we look currently, but at least from an end lvl BC perspective... we might be considered pretty well Hybridized...

Officers' Quarters: More loot-rolling shenanigans {WoW}

Nov 2nd 2009 3:03PM @lilB

I think the fundamental difference in thought process here is that you believe that when you 'help' another person, it entitles you to a reward.

Other people believe that helping another doesn't automatically entitle you to get something.

For example: If I go over to my friend's house to help him move his couch, I do not feel that he needs to give me a free gift for doing it. I'm doing it because he's my friend.

Likewise, if I go to Nax to help out my guildmate, I do not expect a reward. I am there because I want to help/enjoy the instance.

I personally have never rolled on a piece of gear that wasn't an upgrade for me, without express permission by the raid leader and/or the majority of the group. If even one person says no, I won't roll.

Ghostcrawler: Haste-y DoTs and HoTs for Priests {WoW}

Oct 7th 2009 6:11PM DoT classes rock the meters? Please tell me you feign ignorance! Rare it is when I hear of an Aff. Lock or SPriest get anywhere *NEAR* the top of the meter

Ghostcrawler: Haste-y DoTs and HoTs for Priests {WoW}

Oct 7th 2009 5:32PM Your comment, while seeming facetious, does bring up a point. Many melee DPS stack Haste to a large extent. If Blizzard decided to make this effect of Haste universal, it would greatly affect a rogue's Poisons and bleeds, as well as a DK's diseases. Additionaly it would most likely affect Deep Wounds (and the analogous Ignite) vastly increasing their efficent damage potential.

I think that this is very likey to be one of the reasons that Blizzard has decided to go with glyphs instead of playing around with a universal change. It allows them to boost a specific class or spec, without affecting the classes they they believe are already where they need to be.

Patch 3.3 PTR: Undocumented druid changes {WoW}

Oct 2nd 2009 4:41AM If you don't belive this is a 'bug fix' ... ask rogues about the vanish 'bug fix' that has been the "tacitly accepted behavior of the spell" since god knows how long.

Doing something nice for other players {WoW}

Oct 1st 2009 1:13AM I know what you mean!

A long, long time ago... I was killing Centaur in Desolace... on a PvP server.
I happened to run into a Tauren doing the exact same thing. We both stood there for a moment, waiting for the other to attack... nothing happened... till a mob respawned right on top of him. Needless to say, we were both a little under lvl... so I decided to help him.

After the fight he bowed and waved... then after deciding he wasn't going to eat my face... I turned and started fighting my own centaur... He charged in and helped...

We continued doing this for something like an hour, perfectly alternating kills with no communication. Finally he waved /bye and we parted ways. As long as I remember this game, that story will always stick out to me.

A critical examination of Garrosh Hellscream {WoW}

Sep 22nd 2009 3:40AM Dreyja... I never thought I'd say this about a dwarf...


... I think I love you. I find myself /agreeing with *way* too many of your posts...

Breakfast Topic: Loving the class you hate {WoW}

I couldn't stop myself from giggling madly every single time I got a whirlwind crit with a big 2-hander lvling up. Highly recommended!

Aug 10th 2009 3:37PM As a hunter IRL... I'm pretty sure if I was tasked to skin a human... I could.

Heck, what do you think Scalping is?
