Jul 1st 2011 2:18PM Here's a question:
While this was a win for video games, how much of this conservative court's ruling was ethical instead of political/economical? I'm not arguing that First Amendment rights for video games is bad or didn't happen, but could this ruling be seen as just as beneficial for video game publishers, as corporations? Is it possible that this decision could have been about free market capitalism for publishers as it was "video games are art"?
Jun 20th 2011 1:19PM I think that the Lich King uses his link to the Spirit Realm to corrupt/merge a Spirit healer with the vrykul to create the Val'kyr, grounding them in the material plane but still having enough of a link to exist in the spirit realm and bring his servants back to undeath.
This would explain their similar powers, and I think the Lich King has exactly this kind of power in his wheelhouse.

Mar 21st 2011 11:05AM My warrior has been my main for 6 years, and I've always been a tank...until recently. I switched to Arms for fun and find I'm very good at it, starting at 10k in greens and blues. I'm at 352 gear score now (with a Zin'Rohk! :D) and was invited to my first Cata raid by friends. I have never DPS'd in a raid before and spent the first 4-5 boss attempts hugging the floor because I would pull aggro. xD
I was just so used to being on top of the meters from tanking and not used to having to manage my aggro in a raid setting. *chuckle*
My friends were very understanding and those that didn't know me already thought it was funny and were very impressed by my numbers, so everything worked out, but I still felt kinda silly.
Mar 2nd 2011 7:35PM My thoughts would be to scrap the rigid spec'ing system altogether. Hear me out.
People are going to respec as much as they like, regardless of how much gold it'll cost. Bliz wants specs to feel distinct, and they've done that with the new trees and locking 31 points into a tree before branching out. Put these two together and have a system much like the Equipment Manager is presently.
Be able to save as many specs as you want, or start from scratch, but make each spec switch cost a non-negligible amount of gold, say 50-100 gold per, or have a similar pricing scale as now but reach higher limits of say 200g.
This solves three problems at once:
1) Provides options to users
2) Still make each spec a conscious choice
3) Creates a money sink
Feb 10th 2011 11:58AM That is the best Queue image EVER. Just when I thought Tobias couldn't be any more awkward, I see this image. xD
"Oh, Tobias, you blowhard!"
How does Sylvanas' corset stay up? The collective desperation of lonely nerd boys everywhere.

As a long-time warrior tank, I've always been against anyone other than the tank pulling, except in certain situations. The reality is that hunters have been using traps for CC since before Misdirect/trap launcher/Burning Crusade. It's not difficult for a hunter to lay down a frost trap in front of them and Distracting Shot the Squared mob into the trap. The only reason for a hunter to Camouflage and use his Trap Launcher to pull is to play with his shiny toys.
And I get that, I do. And I'll let them if I think they're competent. But it's not necessary and makes my job a bit harder; not a lot harder, but in a PUG, it's not worth it.
Jan 11th 2011 11:26AM I'm really looking forward to what the Switchblade may have to offer the WoW community. I emailed Mathew McCurley as soon as I heard about it and wondered out loud about what great possibilities there are for utilizing a imaging keyboard for UI elements. Will it be possible to have your character health and mana on a button or two so it won't take up space on the upper screen? If so, can you then press one of those buttons to open your character screen or another to change loot rules? I can't wait to find out!
