Sep 19th 2010 2:37PM When I play on my holy pally I always feel that one of the things that
makes up for having dismal dps is the fact that I can usually keep
myself alive until help arrives in PvP or keep the tanks going no
matter what during raids. All of that is tied into having a great mana
pool and healing spells that are quick, effective, and non-draining.
I'm not in the beta and maybe I'm missing something when I read these
reports on changes to healing on holy pallies, but it just sounds to
me that healing is going to become way more complicated and
ineffective than it is. It seems we'll have less to offer if there is
so little room for an incorrect decision- and not just in those more
difficult fights. With the current shortage of tanks and healers, I
don't understand why these changes are being made to make healing more
demanding, more stressful, and less forgiving.
Please, some other holy pallies explain and tell me what I am missing.
Sep 18th 2010 8:19AM I've been working on getting different achievements and rep, since I'm a fairly casual player and don't feel I am properly geared for endgame content. I've found myself running Scholomance a whole bunch of times for rep, and it was actually fun to do it at a more laid back pace and enjoy the work that went into giving it that haunted mansion feel. I've also started adding the Outland fishing quests to my dailies and finally caught Mr. Pinchy and got my pet!
Sep 2nd 2010 5:25PM As if it weren't already unfortunate that you would be envious and resentful of the fact a child, whose life was cut short due to a hideous disease, got to experience a little joy from having some cool in-game items, it's also unfortunate that you find it perfectly fine to say so.
Think about it: You come across as a really lousy human being.
Don't worry, though. I am sure you will find some commiseration among fellow gamers-- mainly the ones who make pugs a sampler of abnormal psych for other players.

They do the fires by region and coords- I thought it was helpful.
Jun 11th 2010 2:04PM How to develop thicker skin.
On WoW I've encountered rudeness at previously unseen levels. At first I'd take it very personally, and being a shy person, would often let it limit how I played the game (my main is a healer, and I would not heal for a tank I did not already know, for example). Over time I realized that my experience isn't unique, that even top-notch, well-geared players deal with the sociopaths, and that I shouldn't let the fact I am still gearing up and not topping DPS charts dictate my worth as a player- or my right to enjoy the game I pay for.
Now I just jump in there, do my best, and don't let idiots upset me anymore.
I'm finding that the experience has crossed over into real life and I tend to handle situations with more abrasive people without getting upset.

Seriously??? Finish the pull out of consideration for the party even though they need to respond to a call?? You obviously don't understand that whether a person survives or dies from a stroke or heart attack, for instance, is determined by how quickly emergency personnel arrive. I would hate to think that anyone responsible for providing that assistance is going to ponder whether this was worth running or just sauntering to. I don't care if Cuddles is on the roof again or Uncle Fred is just having a case of bad gas: 911 means GO-- not taking chances.
That being said, anytime I've played with people who are in a situation where they may have to split suddenly, they have always said something at the beginning of the instance. That's all that is needed.
May 24th 2010 2:37PM If that GL watches The Guild, he may channel his inner Vork and embrace the fact that what unifies the guild is his guildmates' uniform hatred of him... ;-)
I think the suggestion of creating a space where the guild members can report their concerns and expectations will help minimize the impact of the private chat channel. If the GL is honestly trying to address grievances, I'd hope the majority of the guild's members would realize that ongoing complaining on the private channel is really QQ'ing. That being said... there is always a group of people who band together because they like to complain. I'm betting that the private channel would exist regardless of whom the GL was. Hopefully creating that feedback space will weed out the legitimate concerns from the drama seekers.
May 24th 2010 2:17PM Because I don't use it often, I forget to turn "Aspect of the Pack" off when I do...but the worst part is that it may take me a second or two to realize why folks in my party are walking around with little stars over their heads...
