Shifting Perspectives: Pulling 101: Deeper into the dungeon {WoW}

Jul 28th 2010 1:21AM tbh, reading this because i have a worgen drood on beta going feral (thought it only right considering)

Cataclysm Beta: Cataclysm will bring troll and dwarf warlocks {WoW}

Jul 1st 2010 12:14AM I actually know a couple of mages who after getting post ICC gear went troll for the extra beserk, at this point arcane PVE mages are just haste junkies and troll is looking good for them.

Cataclysm Talent Preview: Holy priests {WoW}

Jun 11th 2010 1:04AM ^^this

Lightwell, i think i've seen twice since wrath Launched....

CoH being nerfed yet again....Imo Circle of healing is THE spell that defines holy priests, and sux that its being tampered with yet again...

Chakra, should have the aoe section reversed , do 3 CoH get a bigass PoH, because lets face it....when was the last time u cast 3 of PoH in a row?

All in all.....i feel the released details of Holy have been really underwhelming, those are just my 3 biggest beefs

Spiritual Guidance: Ghostly aspects of our shadowy hatepower {WoW}

May 13th 2010 2:29AM I swear that quote is the most mis-represented line in Warcraft history.....Anyone should go look up the original interview, this person has taken it entirely out of context...THEY NEVER SAID ARENAS WERE A MISTAKE, just the way they implemented it


Please read your own article before you link it to justify somthing that the link disproves.

PS i hate arena with a passion

I hate not checking ones own sources more.

Gold Capped: Engineering isn't so useless after all {WoW}

May 12th 2010 10:41PM I dont know if its just my server, but a buddy of mine is mining/engineering and he farms saronite/gas clouds in sholozar 24/7..... we joke that he practicly lives there.

now i'm sure he's not uber rich but for him to say he only has 5K gold means he's broke in his opinion lol

He claims Gas clouds make up most of his farming profit.

Shifting Perspectives: Tanks and the barrier to entry {WoW}

WoW Rookie: Leveling with PvP {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2009 5:30PM FAIL!

I have 4 lvl 80's
and am on my way to my 5th and 6th (i want to have 1 80 of each class) and thats not counting the million alts i have gotten to 20 or 30 then deleted (ok i exagerate)
For my latest toon (hunter) i have lvl'd exclusivly through BG's......questing (after you have done them that many times) becomes extreamly boring, and BG's are actually really fun to lvl.
As a full BoA hunter (chest/shoulders/gun/staff/2xtrinkets) i'm usually effective at lower end of my bracket (through slowing and freezing) as a suport toon and most ignore me due to my low lvl, at the higher end of my bracket i turn into a killing machine having effectivly played with a handicap for 5 lvls. I know its the same BG's over and over, but the unpredictable nature of group composition, and oposing players skill that keeps things interesting. Every couple of lvls i will increase my skills(i.e defence) and proffesions, then go back to BGS. You can always predict what a Mob will do, not so much a player (even if your have rough idea of what they "should" be doing) which keeps things interesting.

Ghostcrawler and the "hybrid tax" {WoW}

Oct 28th 2009 10:29PM ummm...i lvl my priest holy from 10-77 only changed to shadow for the last 3 lvls to "check it out"

i did not find it boring....

i lvl'd my pally from 10-70 in TBC days as prot, found aoe grinding highly amusing (espicially when i saw a mage die off one mob of the same kind i just took down 8 of)

I did not find it boring....

I think most people are very afraid of a return to TBC philosophy.....if they impliment as they have stated most people who dont read forums probably wont even notice, thats fine in my book.....If its back to the point where no one will take my Ret pally to H MGT again i'll be pretty pissed off.

Shifting Perspectives: Leveling 31-40, part 2 {WoW}

Aug 25th 2009 11:49PM My shadow priest is in Holy spec 90% of the time ( i swear i must not have hit a heroic, 10 or 25 in shadow for at least 3 months)

My ret pally has been in prot spec since the tournament came out

My druid who has a hybrid kitty/bear build, and dual spec'd tree has only EVER from lvl 13 to lvl 72 where its at now healed or tanked a dungeon. (who does have gear to range dps as well, so yes i can tank/heal/melee/or range when needed, not that i ever have been asked to do either dps @ grayed out smart alec DK)
and i hate quest grinding, and would much prefer to dungeon grind. Almost all my lvling was don through dungeons.

I'm sorry but i'm with allison somone who "can" take on a key role (tank/heals) and doesn't do it, and then QQ's about wait times needs a could kick up the backside.

and this next bit is just imho:
If u can tank or heal as spec, when u hit 40 take either healing or tanking as ur other spec.
When u get a quest that lets u choose what reward u get, if u don't need the dps reward just amass ur off-set through crap reward greens. Make people aware this is not your normal spec, and they will be a lot more lenient to lack of experiance mistakes when u have to fulfil that role in a pinch. With the lack of heals/tanks on most servers, your letting your server down otherwise (think bio-diversity)

Also, just hit 80? new to tanking/healing? go back do some normal 5-mans, in a few runs you'll be apples mate. just don't start with HoL lol
