Jan 12th 2010 10:40AM Yeah. Coliseum 10 never dropped Conquest emblems - only Triumph. I read that and I was very, very confused. Regardless of what happened in 3.0 and 3.1, by the time 3.2 came around Triumph was dropping from Coliseum 10.
Jan 11th 2010 10:28AM I am guilty of slamming through an instance as fast as my raid gear can carry me.
On the other hand, I like to communicate. "I'm putting on a ton of threat gear, let me know if you want me to switch back to stam, heals." "Just slow me down if I'm going too fast or if you need mana."
And regardless of how fast I go, I always readycheck before every boss. Even the stupid ones. It only takes a second and I think its polite. (Anyways, I'm a pally tank, and I usually need that second to mana up haha)
Oct 14th 2009 2:51PM As long as it's not a dress, i'll be happy.
(And I'm a girl playing a girl character- seriously, tanking in a dress?! NO!)
Sep 15th 2009 11:17AM Hehehe.... you might be public enemy #1 in a battleground, but DAMN can you make a difference! May it's because I usually play in premades, but, I find (disc) Priest to be the most fun class to PVP with by far. So many interesting things to do! You get focus fired because you're DANGEROUS.
And who says a priest can just heal? Off the top of my heal, I spend a lot of time doing non-healing things, like fearing or manaburning or MCing someone (usually an annoying healer) on the other team just to remove them from the fray - or send them over an edge/cliff.
I realize the comment was in jest but I had to respond - I don't do arena, but battleground priest is the shit!
Sep 15th 2009 10:58AM Every Man for Himself shares a cooldown with the PVP trinket. It's not a bonus 3rd CC break. The benefit you get from the racial is that the cooldown is only 2 minutes instead of 5, and you don't have a waste a trinket slot on it.
Sep 14th 2009 3:37PM As a tank, I paid close attention to those comments when I saw them show up on blue post trackers, but they obviously apply to everyone ... these posts by GC are very, very interesting, and I'm so glad Wow.com put up an insightful, well-thought-out article for the wider wow community.
I really wish there was a Developer's blog in lieu of the crappy blue post trackers I use when curious about what the developers are saying... some centralized form of information would be nice. I LOVE how involved the devs are on the forums, though. GC and others' comments might inflame people sometimes, but I love that they speak their mind and joke around and yet sometimes share very insightful remarks like the above with us.
On the topic of nerfs... QQ QQ QQ. I might complain a bit about nerfs, but I've been playing this game a long time and I trust the developers' ability to balance the bigger picture. I don't care if my numbers go down, if the game is better for it. I don't care if I have to retune my gear, if the stats before the nerf were out of whack and mesh better now. Sure, it's annoying enough to complain a little, but I think every serious raider who is used to a "guild-first" mentality should be familiar with the idea that one person's slight inconvenience might be necessary to making the whole machine work more smoothly.
I'd rather see aspects of the game (like tank avoidance) nerfed before they become so absurdly inflated, as they clearly are now. Otherwise, fear of angering the community will stop the devs from making changes that really need to be made .... but I trust the devs to make the hard decisions. They've done well so far, ups and downs of course, but we're all still playing. :)
Jul 28th 2009 1:22PM WOW!! I am a serious wow player and a HUGE sytycd fan - It's the only reality tv show I watch, and I love seeing the incredibly talented dancers - so I was really excited to see this article!
Evan's a good guy. He's really not good enough to have gotten as far in the competition as he has now & will go home this week if the voters have any brains at all, but he's definitely a very talented dancer and has added some character to the competition. And he plays wow!
Not everyone will care about this article, but I was fascinated and loved reading it since I've been following Evan's progress in sytycd for weeks and weeks (usually while on wow at the same time).
