What happened to TourGuide? Part 2 {WoW}

Mar 15th 2010 4:53AM The adaptations to TG by WoW-pro were done ENTIRELY with tekkub's permission.

Now that he's (quite literally) sold out, a new WoW-pro addon is in the works.

Seriously, we're not bad people, don't believe everything Zygor tells you.

The Light and How to Swing It: The truth about Lightsworn Garb {WoW}

Mar 8th 2010 6:03AM I think the word for the job might be "reactiveness".

The Daily Blues {WoW}

Feb 24th 2010 4:18AM Reading MMO-C today, I realised that this post basically missed all the possible "important" posts, because they'd previously been covered in individual wow.com posts. If blue comments that have already had a post (i.e, the significant ones) aren't going to get a post, then this feature becomes a bit Anasterian-y.

If this feature is, in the future, going to repeat stuff, then it becomes a bit repetitive, as all the important things have already been covered, or will be covered.

Read the URL, read the article, read the comments if you wish.

That's some serious spin.

Which is fine, this is a blog. But don't let it try and pass itself off as a news source.

The Daily Blues {WoW}

Feb 24th 2010 12:40AM Well, the problem here is that many (foolish) people are getting their news from one source in WoW, and that source is NOT an impartial news site, such as MMO-C, it is a BLOG. A blog can never provide the kind of impartial information that every interested WoW player should read. I come to WoW.com for comment on the news, NOT the news, as WoW.com is an opinion driven blog, rather than a news site.

An opinion driven blog should not, in my opinion, be attempting to report the news without comment upon it.

However, I would be thrilled if some comment/opinion could be provided to this post, to take it somewhere BEYOND the impartiality provided by MMO-C.

PS. NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE STATUS OF ANASTERIAN! People want comment, not knowing what's wrong with some PTR server 0.001% of your readerbase care about.

Feb 24th 2010 12:19AM I, for one, welcome our new WoW media overlords.

The Daily Blues {WoW}

Feb 24th 2010 12:11AM Yes, many other sites do of course do a daily blue round up, however, WoW.com already takes a lot from MMO-Champion, and essentially reposts all their datamining here.

This latest move appears to be a little anti-competition, and an attempt to keep all traffic about WoW on this site.

I, personally, do not like the idea of a WoW RSS feed entirely controlled by one entity.

It sounds like the (failed) buffd.net, except without the community control, and instead with one large entity controlling it.

I dunno, personally I don't feel comfortable about one site controlling all the news. And I know, "people don't have to read wow.com, they can go to MMO-C anyway", but the fact is that many people won't, for "convenience sake" and will end up getting all their news from WoW.com's (OCCASIONALLY sensationalist) media. (See: Blizzard Forces GMs to Give Players More Choice In Their Account Recovery) And we en up with one website with a monopoly over all WoW news coverage.

Patch 3.3.3 PTR: Shaman changes {WoW}

Patch 3.3.3 PTR: Shaman changes {WoW}

Feb 20th 2010 10:46AM @squeek: No, I think you're in fact adding 6 seconds. You have a 15 second debuff, and next GCD is Lava Burst. You now have a 19-20 second debuff. 8 seconds later you'll add another 6 seconds, giving us roughly a 17 second debuff (including flight times, GCDs, etc). The 5th time this happens (after which you'll have 13 or 14 seconds left), you'll have added in a whole nother tick. Even at 3 LvB you're only having 0.5 "pointless" time.

You could even gear for specific numbers of haste to get the ticks going to give you one just before it drops off, but who knows yet. (Depending on how the amount of haste needed to get another flame shock tick compares to the amount needed for another lightning bolt). I think this is quite likely, considering that you can get an ideal scenario at 5 LvB, and at 3 LvB you lose only 0.5 seconds of flame shock which won't lead to a tick while at 6 LvB you lose 1. At 8 you lose 0.5, and at 10 you get another perfect lot (with these haste numbers).

Writing this off before this has been thoroughly looked at is a bit premature, isn't it?

Patch 3.3.3 PTR: Shaman changes {WoW}

Feb 20th 2010 2:40AM Haste may well be the go to stat for YOUR enhancement shaman. The only way to find out whether you needed haste or AP was to sim it.
