Feb 1st 2010 3:25AM I actually disagree here, especially for gear from normal ToC and the ICC 5 mans which you can chain run. If you're already a decently well geared tank, you can queue as a tank and get a group for these places in 2 min. If you're a DPS trying to gear up for tanking, you're looking at 20-30 min wait times to get a group. Basically, in an hour, a tank can run ToC 2-3 times, a DPS, probably only once. Need something from H Oculus and not geared enough to tank it yet? Be prepared to sit in q for an hour, only to have the healer or tank drop group as soon as they see its Oculus. The new drake has only helped that a little. And I know how hard it is to gear up a tank, I did it on my main in before 3.1 came out when there was no dungeon finder, no welfare epics from normal 5 mans, etc. And I've been beat out on tank gear when I was tanking by DPS.. I know it sucks, but they have just as much right to it as you if they plan to use it to tank... as far as I'm concerned, the more tanks the better so I can play with DPS sometimes. I've also certainly been beat on DPS gear by tanks when I was DPSing, it goes both ways.

Nov 11th 2009 3:13AM I will absolutely agree that PVP is "harder" than PVE. It takes not only the same kind of mastery and knowledge of your abilities that is need to be a top raider, the knowledge of other classes abilities and limitations that say a good raiding tank, raid leader, etc, needs, but it also takes something that by and large even the best raiders don't need..... good twitch gaming skills, especially for the Arena, but somewhat true in BGs as well. This is why I hate PVP, though I readily admit that its harder than what I do and hats off to those good at it. But i play WoW to RELAX, sit back, chill out, watch a movie while i play, maybe have a few beers, talk on the phone. If I want to twitch game (and sometimes I do) I'll go pop in Halo or Gears of War or Call of Duty.
Nov 8th 2009 3:29PM I've got to say that as I'm leveling my many alts who are all over 70 now through Northrend I'm still running into ALOT of noobs. Druids who ask "whats flight form?" and just lots of people who clearly haven't run an instance before, don't have 80s, etc. I would say fully a third of people I PUG instances with or do group quests with are on their first run to end game.
Oct 1st 2009 2:46AM Forsaken have dibs on Thriller because when the Thriller dance is done in the video it is done by Michael Jackson (who hasn't turned into a werewolf yet and looks more like a zombie) and an entire dance troop of UNDEAD zombies.
Sep 26th 2009 5:13PM They better give us Horde feasts of roasted Night Elves to apologize for forcing Garrosh on us... seriously, territory gains are not gonna cut it. Specially since they're mostly purple shiny elf forests.
Sep 26th 2009 5:03PM The reason no one goes to Silvermoon or Exodar is that they are in out of the way useless places even when your below 60 and obviously completely useless once you hit Outlands and Northrend. However, I can't imagine that people wouldn't use an Alliance capital in Gilneas, so close to Horde territory... Silverpine Forest could become a very interesting PVP area. Especially with you Allies losing Southshore I'd think a capital and FP in Gilneas would be quite useful. I was hoping to see a goblin capital in southern Kalimdor, maybe in Tanaris or somewhere near there. Thats sort of a Horde travel dead zone. But, oh well.
Aug 22nd 2009 2:55PM While I have seen confirmation that Garrosh will be taking a more active role in the Horde's leadership, I haven't actually seen any confirmation from Blizz in wow.com's coverage of Blizzcon that Thrall is actually handing over complete leadership of the Horde while he goes off to be some neutral hero or something, as some of the leaked information suggested. Anyone watching the stream or with better sources able to confirm this? I hope not... Thrall is the man.
