Mar 31st 2011 6:06PM You sad sad Jamie Oliver fan... I bet you don't often use a mortar... A wooden mortar is much better than a granite one for many purposes and situations...

(btw. let everyone recognize this as the official starting point of the soon to be world wide internet granite vs. wooden mortar war)

Scattered Shots: Pre-heroic hunter gear in Cataclysm {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2010 1:39PM Oh My Gosh Hrothgar!!!

have you been inside my head? This is the most true and best comment on wow insider ever...and I mean ever. Having myself levelled a few dps and healer via the dungeon finder tool I can safely say that bad tanks are the absolute worst thing about it.

Especially as a healer you really start to hate these guys...cause you know were getting the blame when the group can't survive the pally "tank" in ret spec and gear pulling 30% of an entire instance. Of as dps you hate them equally much for making you leveling soo much longer.

In my latest experience I can say that I reached the ignore cap around lvl75 on my disc priest. And that ignore list is filled with 96% bad, awful, ignorant, pseudo tanks with egos so inflated they learned flying at lvl 1.

On my good days I have often tried to help them out by explaining a few of the very simple basic rules of tanking...but so many times they will reply with pure un-watered down hatred and bile that I finally came to terms with the fact that it simply isn't worth my trouble.

Oh and don't give me any crap about not knowing what tanking is like...I've tanked every bloody thing up to and including Arthas. And the simple fact remains: tanking is damn easy... It can be stressful it can be demanding but it is not overly complicated.

What Blizzard should do is impose a speck check. So you cant que as tank if you don't have a tank spec. In addition you should not get a dungeon CD if you leave a group after the tank has left...Oh and they should put some tank recommendations in the login screen, like say: as a tank, your role is to PROTECT your group - not to boss them around. And perhaps: as a tank remember you are not invinsible: you need a healer with a manabar that is not close to empty when you pull....There are others but atleast this would be a start

Drama Mamas: The case of the nice guy and the social leech {WoW}

Nov 6th 2010 11:09AM @ Kylenne (why is there no comment buttons on comments?)

You are right that both of them suffer from GSF4. But interestingly they are not necessarily themselves carriers of it. The reason the suffer from it (in this instantiation) is that RealID is an application of GSF4 + perhaps a few other fallacies.

GFSF4 - is the idea that friendship is transitive - or that any 2 people in virtue of having a mutual friend should therefore also be friends.

While it is obvious that real life friendships rarely completely adhere to the rule of GFS4 ( most people have 2 friends that are not friends and perhaps would/should not be). The fact remains that RealID friendship is transitive - at least as I have understood it any of your RealID friends other RealID friends can actually see your online status and contact you via the RealID service. This is also one of the reasons I never activated RealID.

Another Important problem with RealID, though slightly off-topic, is expressed by the following argument:

Just because I have certain in-game friends that I want/need/desire to stay in contact with regardless of which a char I and or they are currently logged on it does not follow that I want to share my real life Name with them.

This is the second, and perhaps most important reason I personally have never activated RealID - I imagine that im not alone in this...

Oct 13th 2010 2:45AM Actually it wouldn't cause the sad fact is Blizz has a new build-in GS counter...

It doesn't say GS it says average ilevel but basically the same thing.

Breakfast Topic: Gotta go! {WoW}

Jun 6th 2010 1:39PM Well Lisa, you cant really tell were not on topic when we are actually discussing somthing written in the actual blog post. While we may not be touching too much on the main topic we are more on topic than a lot of commenters I have seen on this website...

I appreciate what I suspect is a well meaning attempt to live and let live, btu I wil not stand for uncalled for censorship.

I don't believe my comment was bashing either side of the debate - I was merely pointing out the other debaters contradicting themselves...

I see James' reference to the rapture as a joke albeit a joke only funny to those who knows what it means - it will for instance probably be lost on a lot of the European readers, even the christian ones. Since in Europe its been a long time since bible quotes have been commonplace in the daily discourse.

The point is its a joke...funny or not it was referential to the guys own belief system (I suppose) and in no way could it be construed as demeaning to other peoples beliefs.

So in my view the other person was trying to pick a fight without provocation.

On the other hand the zealous bashing he received afterwards was also uncalled for and in at least one comment directly fundamentalist.

Therefore I found it to be fair to ask both parties to cool it. And that it...

Breakfast Topic: Gotta go! {WoW}

Jun 6th 2010 9:47AM @ the person who didn't understand that the reference to christianity was clearly a joke: you know damn well that the christians would front big time at you calling their faith a mythology...so in that sense you're no better than the original poster

@ the people being offended by the person referring to christianity as mythology: suck it up guys...it is mythology, as one of you implied mythology=belief in non-factual stories. And if the bible and other canonized christian text were actually factual...you would have no need to believe in them, you would then just know that the stories were factual...so if you think you KNOW just that, then you're not really believing and thus not good christians and then the questions becomes: what are you really upset about?

@ the wow.com staff: I know I know youre probably thinking to yourselves: why did we ever leave the commentary section open to those damn ungodly Europeans....well tough luck sports...you did :-)

The Daily Blues {WoW}

May 11th 2010 7:45AM If they wanted to give warlocks a fear alternative viable in an instance, they should make:

Angst

1.5 sec cast 20 yard range

Fills the enemy with uncontrollable anxiety,
rendering it unable to move for up to X sec.
Damage caused may interrupt the effect.
Only usable on 1 target at a time.


They could even add a silence effect to it aswell: "unable to move or speak"

Well i think this was a stroke of genius...hope they implement it
