Mar 18th 2012 4:02AM I plan on being there, but on the off chance I'm not, what were you most excited to discover of what you got, and what do you still want to know more about?
Mar 16th 2012 5:28PM I remember when I started raid tanking. Both me and the bear had been trying to get in, and when a portion of our raiding group left, we were the only geared tanks left- but we hadn't been expecting to be tanks. So, from day one (back in ToC) we've been equal co-tanks. Sometimes the fights or the patches favored one of us for one roll or the other, but its pretty much been "hey, you wanna mt this?"
Mar 7th 2012 4:15AM I will. I think it'll be at least two months until my guild manages to clear the place, probably more, and beyond that there are a bunch of achievements and other random things I want to be able to do without having to worry about leveling up, getting gear, doing professions etc...
Mar 3rd 2012 6:49PM I don't think it'll be that hard to balance stats. DR will probably work the same on all forms of avoidance/mitigation, so just reforge from what you have the most of to what you have the least of to get the greatest bonus.
You're kinda of overstating the stats- block and mastery are the same thing and, from the way Shield Block is looking, it doesn't matter how much hit/exp you have, you still get the defensive buff. So its just the three that you have to balance now.
And a little bit of active mitigation is a good thing. On my pally, hitting holy shield is great- its a short CD so I'm comfortable using it whenever I want, but using it on CD isn't optimal. I mostly use it when I see a chunk of damage coming in- often when I pick up a bunch of adds- these things end up synergyzing (sp?) and it isn't more work.
Feb 18th 2012 2:13AM In my guild, I'm known as auto-tune guy. Occasionally my mic screws up and begins to modulate my voice, so it sounds like I'm trying to autotune it.
Feb 15th 2012 6:45PM Your gmail made a noise so I had to alt tab to mine and then nobody was talking to me. For that, you should give me a mount.
Feb 3rd 2012 8:16PM With the CS heartbeat, is it a good idea to use a Grand Crusader/Avenger's Shield proc? I feel like it does more damage and it still gets you the HP. Also, you can then go back and tag CS immediately as you don't have to wait for the CD.
Feb 1st 2012 8:36PM Somehow I read the title as "Is my shadow priest's dps too high?"
And I don't even play a spriest.
Jan 31st 2012 4:25PM I see it as more of a "choice". Most civilians are in a better place, and don't want to go through the pain of dying again. Someone like Cairne, who died many times during Alliance raids, chose to come back each of those times. However, when he is betrayed by Garrosh (via Magatha) and his strongest ally has left him (Thrall goes to Outland) he just doesn't WANT to come back, so he doesn't hit the button. The player keeps on hitting the button because that's what is in their psyche (sp?).

Jan 20th 2012 3:24PM Quick question, if you're block-capped, do you NEED to have sanctuary to be crit proof? I mean, I'd still take it but are you crit proof without it?
