The Light and How to Swing It: Holy PvP basics {WoW}

Apr 18th 2010 9:20PM And remember to keep Beacon of Light up, usually on yourself, though i would be interested to know if other people favour placing beacon on a fellow team mate.

Breakfast Topic: Meet Sylvanas, she snores {WoW}

Mar 12th 2010 8:44AM She is gorgeous, and Sylvanas is a beautiful name.

But please note that you have basically just committed to 2 years of slipper chewing.

Shifting Perspectives: Why (or why not) to play a Druid, part 2 {WoW}

Jul 10th 2009 4:54AM Ah yes, i remeber coming to this game (my first mmo) and chosing the druid class due to its "jack of all trades" abilities. Having no idea how to spec i started as some weird balance/resto mutation spec until i reached stranglethorn vale. With the ganking in STV, i decided to try feral and discovered the joy of prowl and quicker levelling. I have never looked backed. This was just before BC and i remeber one of the raid leaders in our guild who was organising MC runs at the time said us feral and balance druids would evetually "see the light" and spec resto. Pre BC were dark days indeed, thankfully i did not hit the level cap till BC which made feral and balance viable.

One of the great things about the class, which i still think exists to this day, is that druids are simply more willing to help their fellow druids, whether it is in game or through sharing information via forums and blogs.

The main downside for the class imo is that the need to shift to different forms to access abilities remains a handicap, and our ability to do this has diminished to some degree e.g., reduced mana pools for feral. Significant changes - such us the ability to change directly into other forms (remember having to change from cat to humanoid to go to bear and vice versa!) - don't seem to have totally overcome this handicap.

In any event, nice write up AR.

Breakfast Topic: Is WoW too complex? {WoW}

Jul 4th 2009 10:51AM It has become more complex but remains very accessible.

My real beef is that it has become more convoluted: just look at the changing rules and arrangements over arena seasons, differing tier tokens, heroics vs non-heroics, changing stat mechanics. Not necessarily bad changes by any means, some are rather good, but they could sometimes be simplified.
