All the World's A Stage: Common name conventions {WoW}

May 23rd 2010 9:47PM Uh, actually, you can't have triple letters in your name, either.

Cataclysm new zones and sub-zones list {WoW}

May 7th 2010 8:04AM Um, actually, Blizzard said they aren't going to add any new cities, because of the lack of population in Exodar'n Silvermoon. So Kezan's getting buried in rubble, and Gilneas City has been confirmed as a battleground where the two factions try to control the districts of Gilneas.

The Light and How to Swing It: Retribution 102 {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2010 9:53PM Um, the standard build (recommended by Elitist Jerks) is 11/5/55. Believe it or not, int actually does increase our DPS, if only by an absolutely tiny amount directly. The main reason it's useful it because replenishment scales with maximum mana. And frankly, Aura Mastery is far more useful than Party Wall nowadays - when you think about it, absorbing around 1000 extra damage per raid member per second from Festergut's Blight, or 5000 per raid member against Toravon's Whiteout, compared to about 4,000 over 5 people combined with a 50% DPS decrease AND the use of a cooldown that could be used for another chunk of burst raid damage... I think I'd rather take the former.

Totem Talk: Thunder! Thunder! Thunderstorm, ho! {WoW}

Feb 17th 2010 12:25AM I've glyphed Thunderstorm so I can use it as a massive AoE nuke. Though it kinda sucks losing out on a knockback for the sake of massive burst AoE damage.

Two Bosses Enter: Ymiron moves on; Eregos and Loken rematch {WoW}

Jan 27th 2010 11:54AM Loken is using nature magic - which is beyond Eregos's dominion. If I recall correctly, both Loken and Thorim were empowered by Golganeth with thunder and lightning... both of which are natural, and therefore not under Malygos's dominion. Actually, I don't think it falls under ANY dragonflight's dominion... er, anyway, if Loken flees during the Planar Shift, the Pulsing Shockwave is going to hit like a truck, and the whelps will be fried by it, too. Eregos's only hope is to stay in close - but considering how much of a distance advantage Loken gets from being a long way away, he can't go invulnerable and his whelps are somewhat useless.
... oh, and Arc Lightning, too. That's just a bit of extra damage for Loken... Loken's gotta win this.
Now, lorewise, Loken vs Malygos would be a fair fight... Eregos would have to be matched up against, say, Ionar. And yes, I'm aware that Yogg-Saron is more powerful than Loken (And could be considered on par with the Titans) and could be a better match for Malygos, but... Yogg-Saron required FOUR KEEPERS to bring him down. Four entities that are (lorewise) as powerful as Loken, as well as the help of twenty-five incredibly powerful mercenaries. (Ulduar 10 man, as well as Yogg+0 to +3, aren't canon)

Sorry, I've gone off on a bit of a rant, but... point is, Loken is a step up from Eregos.

Introductory guide to fighting death knights, Page 3 {WoW}

Jan 24th 2010 12:46AM Strangulate IS, in fact, a blood rune ability, and only Anti-magic SHELL prevents debuffs being applied - zone just reduces magic damage. And when you point out Blood DK's undiseased heals, are we talking about Blood Presence or is there actually a talent that causes healing without diseases?

Upcoming Adjustments announced for Old Kingdom, Nexus, Culling of Stratholme {WoW}

Jan 12th 2010 3:26AM It's kinda a pushover to do the skipping CoS event in lore.
"Hey, Chromie, I've come back here to deal with the infinite corruptor. Any chance you can skip Arthas's speech for me?"
"Sure!" *skips forward 10 minutes*

"-strongest steel and magic will go forth with me to purge the city."

Breakfast Topic: How did Winter Veil 2009 go for you? {WoW}

Jan 3rd 2010 2:44PM I went into battlegrounds as an undergeared protadin and run around throwing my shield at healers and stunlocking anyone who got too close. Took me about 5 BGs to get the Helper achievement - but I didn't /afk out of any of them. Stayed the full length... in the end, I lost the buff from fall damage in EotS twice and WSG once. But I got merrymaker, so I'm happy for now... not looking forward to the noblegarden grind.

One Boss Leaves: King Ymiron proves the bane of Mal'ganis {WoW}

Dec 10th 2009 10:38AM Krick's still alive, and apparantly not all-that-loyal to the Lich King, either. I'm getting the feeling she could pretty easily win just letting Ick beat himself to death on Paletress's bubble while Krick... um... inspects her.

... this comment was going to be about some winner getting pwned against Falric, but now I'm thinking...

How the HELL would the Wrath of the Lich King (yes, that bossfight is a title drop) face off against Tribunal of Ages? The computer runs away? The Lich King holds off adds while Kel'thuzad hammers on the keyboard? The Lich King throws his adds at their adds while walking slowly towards the keyboard? Maybe if the Tribunal could fly and defended and spawned the adds and the adds had to reach the end of the tunnel...

Okay, I challenge someone to write a Tribunal vs Wrath story. They manage it, I'll... do something awesome.

I think there was a point to this post but it was stolen by hormones.

Phat Loot Phriday: Mystifying Charm {WoW}

Nov 28th 2009 5:13PM Can we get a Sharpened Obsidian Edged Blade? It's kinda awesome. Also I've never seen it drop, so I'm not totally sure that it exists, regardless of what http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49498 says.
