The Cataclysm: A critical examination {WoW}

Oct 28th 2011 3:15PM I personally feel that one of the biggest failures of Cataclysm was only adding 5 levels to the max level for your character. I personally hit 85 in only 2 weeks. After that I was left grinding heroic dungeons and doing starter raids until everything got very boring. One of my biggest complaints with MoP (and trust me, I have lots) is the fact that they only added 5 more levels to the max level again.

The Light and How to Swing It: Nobody's wearing the Reinforced Sapphirium Regalia {WoW}

Feb 28th 2011 9:35AM I'm going to play devil's advocate here as I actually come from perhaps a small camp of holy paladins who enjoy a large amount of crit. Here's my reasoning. With the dramatically larger health pools I'm rarely finding myself over healing a target. Large crits are usually just filling up more of the health bar instead of being wasted. I also rarely am finding myself in a position where I just can't get heals off fast enough since I have options between instants, quick heals, aoe heals, and large slow heals. I still have a modest amount of haste on my gear but I've actually been enjoying a larger amount of crit.

Of course, I definitely agree that our set bonuses are terrible and the 2 piece bonus buffing holy light is an absolute joke since I pretty much have removed that spell from my hotbar as it's all but useless to me. A slow heal that heals for under 10k is a joke in my opinion. Also, I am reforging all of my mastery into anything else because our mastery bonus is just terrible.

Patch 4.1 PTR: Patch notes {WoW}

Feb 24th 2011 11:38AM Word of Glory on a 20 second cooldown?! No more lucky free chain casts of Word of Glory when the 30% proc hits. This one change is going to seriously alter my healing style :(

The Queue: Stonecore frustrations {WoW}

Jan 26th 2011 11:14AM It's gotten to the point now where I refuse to run Heroic Stonecore simply because of the Ozruk fight. This fight is 100% dependent on the tank. The other players might as well not be there because one slight mistake by the tank and it's over. To make the problem even worse, many many players have been experiencing large lag spikes over the past few weeks. Unless your latency is less than 500ms, I've found that YOU WILL NOT kill Ozruk. The small room for error, coupled with delayed reaction times due to the lag, basically make this fight unplayable in my opinion.

Watch Paragon tackle Lady Sinestra {WoW}

Jan 25th 2011 9:37AM I just want to say thank you to Paragon for using excellent music in this video. I'm so sick of watching raid/boss videos with blaring metal/techno music (which I mute). This music fit perfectly for the fight and really made the encounter feel that much more epic!

Raid Rx: 7 pet peeves of healers {WoW}

Jan 21st 2011 9:09AM You forgot the biggest pet peeve... Undergeared DPS players pulling aggro from the tank and taking tremendous amounts of damage without even considering using an aggro-drop. I don't know how many times I've become so frustrated with this and simply let the DPS player die just to teach them a lesson on aggro management. A healer should be healing a DPS player through un-avoidable hits... not as a second main tank!

The Classifieds: Guild videos are awesome {WoW}

Jan 19th 2011 3:24PM The Guild WHACKED of Agamaggan - US Alliance - is currently recruiting for high level players ready to run some 10 man raids. We're a very close knit friendly guild with Vent, our own website, full bank tabs, and ton's of high level profession crafters. If you're interested in joining please whisper either Tresius, Juplea or Moonmmstr in game for an invite. :)

Final Fantasy 14 extends free trial for another 30 days {Joystiq}

Nov 17th 2010 4:58PM They could give the retail game away for free along with no monthly charge and I still wouldn't play this crap. Way to ruin a great franchise Square!
