Sep 1st 2009 1:52PM Matt Low is hardly an authority on healing. He pretends to be to play out his fantasy of being a famous blogger.
Sep 1st 2009 12:30PM The reason it isn't mentioned is because Matt Low is in a fail guild that has probably never even attempted this fight. The biggest BS is that he even mentioned some of the other fights based only on hearsay or going back and trouncing the content at 80. There is no way someone with the kind of fail advice Matt dishes out downed M'uru before he was 80.
At first I thought Matt's advice was some what interesting. The more I read the more I realize this guy has no idea what he is talking about (neither do the other contributors to his blog). When I saw him and his other fat healers acting like star struck dorks with those losers from the Guild I knew he was a tool.
Aug 28th 2009 3:45PM You were playing wow instead of watching Ozzy? You're as bad as the people there who walked out after his first song. I'm still ashamed of all of you.
Aug 27th 2009 3:58PM "I already feel that as a Priest my value has severely diminished since WotLK came out. I felt very needed and wanted in vanilla and BC but now, it seems like people prefer other healing classes and a priest is 'ok to bring along because we need the buffs.' Now I am losing that too."
Umm... We bring our healing priests because of their healing skill. Unless they suddenly forget how to play, then they will continue to have a raid spot. I understand that bad players want unique buffs that will be so important that a raid will bring them because the buff is mandatory, but I support Blizzard's attempt to put an end to it.
Anything they can do to make the flavor of the classes show through in ways that don't involve mandatory raid buffs I support. I think healers in particular are beginning to display this. Each healing spec has a unique play style, but no one healing spec is mandatory for raid success.
If you aren't bad at WoW then this wont affect you.
Aug 27th 2009 2:32PM It is a great change, but speaking of brilliance, where is the substitute for +int. I guess since warlocks can bring it with a fel hunter they decided it didn't quality (unlike the rest of these that are single class only). They should probably create a haste drum that can provide a weaker version heroism/bloodlust (while still putting up the debuff that prevents the actual heroism/bloodlust) to allow a group to function properly without a shaman.
The author of this post is wrong however. All three of these additions are weaker than the standard buff. The fort and wild replacements are only as good as the untalented versions of the class buffs (while the talented versions are significantly better and almost any spec would have them). Since there is no talented version of kings, they made it obviously worse than the baseline ability.
While this will be nice even for 25s, it is a phenomenal change for 10 mans where group composition often makes it difficult to grab all these buffs. If there is ever a difficult 5 man, it will be a nice change for that as well.

You clearly didn't smell some of the folks at Blizzcon.
Aug 24th 2009 7:19PM "I have no words to describe the nerd-crush I have for this woman. "
I do, but I suppose I've already been voted down enough in this thread.
Aug 24th 2009 5:06PM "doesn't sell herself using her body"
I actually had nothing against her until her recent "music video." She is most definitely selling her body. And she is selling it to you guys. Please don't buy, because she's make a joke out of all of you. "Look there is money to be made in selling sex to nerds."
Aug 24th 2009 5:04PM If I don't voice my opinion on this, then every one will continue to believe that all WoW players enjoy this series. It simply isn't true.
"How many other shows portray gamers in a human light?"
I think the depiction is shallow, and part of the reason I don't enjoy the show. It is more like they are depicting the exact sort of gamer that I don't want to be associated with just because I play WoW. It's all the same folks I just saw at Blizzcon who made me sad to like this game. Nerds.
Aug 24th 2009 4:45PM Oooh look guys! It's a woman who likes geeky things and doesn't weigh 800 lbs! OMG she's so talented!
It's absolutely pathetic. The humor on The Guild is so amateur and lame. There is no way any of you would like it at all if you didn't have a crush on her. Grow up.
