Feb 2nd 2012 11:39AM Stephen Colbert is the most awesome paladin of all time. He can tank and heal at the same time and he can do mad DPS without bugs. All hail Colbert Nation!
Aug 16th 2011 11:25AM Wonderful! Now I can keep running random dungeons for fun with friends who play in big raiding guilds on other servers! We tried out the service the first week and loved it! I've never said this before but Thanks, Blizzard!
Aug 6th 2010 11:20AM I started with Healbot and then read about Vuhdo in this column. I switched just to see what it was like and have never looked back. I was so enthusiastic about Vuhdo, most of the healers in my guild have switched to it. My husband figured out a way to configure Vuhdo to handle his pally buffs instead of having to download another addon (Pally Power).

My 80 mage is my favorite toon, I play her so often she's left my 80 hunter in the dust. My New Year's resolution is to get my 80 warlock husband to admit his inherent jealousy of all things mage and play for the right team. Then, he won't have to sleep on the couch anymore.
Merry Christmas to all mages and especially our Emperor Archmage Pants!

Oct 18th 2009 3:50PM WTG Christian! Another outstanding mage column! These are the highlight of my weekend. And I love the warlock hate. I also sympathize with your cookie dough habit - I too am addicted to cookie dough. Maybe it's a mage thing?
Oct 6th 2009 3:00PM Love the article, love the mage column, however I have a request. Part of my enjoyment of the column comes from the warlock-hate (I'm always looking for more ways to tease my lock husband. My particular favorite was "every time someone rolls a lock a kitten dies.")
Aug 6th 2009 3:26PM What a wonderful story! Just what I needed to perk me up today.
Jul 6th 2009 3:40PM Good article!
I never thought about any of this until one of our guildies did an instance run with us. (We're a small leveling guild that occasionally runs instances and heroics.) He'd never done an instance run before - turns out he's legally blind and many of the problems this writer reported, he has. He was afraid to try an instance.
None of us knew he had vision problems.
His blindness wasn't an issue for us. Yeah, he accidentally got too close to a mob or two but we all pulled together and handled it. I couldn't figure out why he wasn't looting anything and he finally admitted it was hard for him to see where he was supposed to loot. He couldn't see the sparklies over the corpses when they were all piled up. No problem. One of us just jumped on top of the corpse so he knew where to loot. Since he was playing a DK, he didn't have any problems with having to heal/rez someone either.
Anything that makes the game more customizable to enhance EVERY player's experience is a good move. I also know a guy who's colorblind who actually did a happy dance the day they implemented colorblind mode. It's simple things like that that can make a huge difference for people.
I'd sure like to see them implement big icons over the repair guy's head. Maybe a symbol over the flight masters and stable masters, too. I search for them in every town, even ones I've been to over and over and over. And if Blizzard can figure out how to do that, surely they can figure out a way so people can turn it off and on to suit themselves.
