Dec 19th 2009 8:39AM I'm proud of my 1000 dps.
Restoration specced dps ftw.
The group healer whines at me, the group dps are happy that I'm there and the tank doesn't care!
If you downrate this comic, I will force you to watch Joel Schumacker's Batman and Robin film for the entire duration and don't worry: I'll know who you are. >:)
Nov 27th 2009 11:36AM I already quit wow back before Ulduar released and my guild cleared Naxxramas.
The only reason I kept my account active was to troll the wow-europe forums where nobody's opinion gets taken seriously.
I still check up on WoW but I still miss the days when my Karazhan geared shaman could beat a clad in season 4 arena player through skill. WoW has always been a gear influenced game but WotLK took it too far especially with making retribution paladins god.
I mean seriously, back in TBC; fire elemental was something to be feared and ran away from whenever it was used... Now in wotlk it's: 'Oh look at the pretty fire thingy, oh well, lets proceed to kill the shaman within one stunlock.'
That's the thing that killed wow in my opinion. As soon as I couldn't pull out all the stops to kill someone who was vastly more geared than me which was a hobby back in TBC and the only thing that kept me going, I just played less and less until eventually I devolved into a wow-europe forum troll.
I love my shaman but I dare not play him anymore nor my protection warrior, instead I just took longer periods of time from the game and only logged in to torture my girlfriend through the simple process of: make alt character, speak one paragraph, get blocked, delete character, make new alt character and repeat. She eventually adapted to that with a whisper blocker from level 1 characters. Also it was very annoying because there is no instant logout for new characters aside from a long walk to the city. However with death knights there was a new opportunity for torture and the death knight starting area is instant logout and level 55 so that evaded her lame little add ons.
Oh - I'm rambling... Well anyway, I've played since vanilla wow, attained sergeant PVP rank just before it finished. The first character and only character that has properly been my main was my orc shaman ever since Vanilla but I've learnt to become the best cellar dweller I could be and when I gave up wow, I spent my 20 hours a day on the computer doing something else like: designing RPG's that will never be developed and playing star wars knights of the old republic 1 and 2 as well as.. Writing stories with my limited English skills.
I once went to college, attained a level 3 BTEC National in IT award but I didn't finish the second year nor the course after it and now I have no urge to get a job. I'm British.
I've always had a chronic lazy streak inside of me though. I went to 2 different schools in which I convinced my mother to get me out because I said I was being bullied and then there was the college incident. I still have impressive GCSE results though but that's nothing when you don't have the commitment to finish any education.
Considering everything I've been through, it's amazing I haven't killed myself yet but I've always convinced myself that I'm too cowardly to do that anyway so I live in isolation, not seeking help and just waiting for some illness to kill me off because I'm too cowardly to do it myself.
Rambling again, uh well... I quit wow because I just wasn't being entertained anymore because I can not commit to anything anymore... Even without wow and before wow.
Nov 26th 2009 1:59PM I actually starve myself on Christmas Day to remember my dear beloved cat who died 2 years ago on Christmas Day. Long live Charlie. :')
Nov 26th 2009 11:43AM I am thankful for being British and not American so I don't have to celebrate this gluttinous holiday!
Plus if you bet correctly how fast this comment will be downrated, you win a free car!*

Nov 20th 2009 9:07PM On the contrary, I play a restoration shaman and a protection warrior and no other classes. I am not a total inconsiderate ------- to everyone by rolling a dps!
Nov 20th 2009 9:01PM Rule number one of the internet: Nobody's opinion on the internet matters neither do yours. They can not harm you, if your name is the subject of laughter and mockery on your server: Blizzard has the convenient server and name change just for your benefit!
I have such a resistant skin because I have been subject to and have done some trolling on the wow official forums - only on the European forums mind you where nobody's opinion gets taken seriously by anyone.
I'm a very cold and logical person so if I wanted to play a female character for the fun of it and someone kept calling female and I didn't want to right the issue and tell them otherwise, then I will do it. If they express anger, surprise or whatever other negative emotion they might have; then simply ignore them.
On another subject, as a cold-hearted person that I am, I believe charities are a way of making wealthy people feel better about themselves without solving any issues at all. I believe sympathy for another's condition is futile and that we should adopt the Spartan way of raising children (any defects and they are left to die).
The argument that many would likely use against me is: How would you like it if it was done to you? My response would be: I would not care because I am not a caring person.
PS. I love cats.
Nov 20th 2009 5:23PM Mike, by any chance is your guild named: 'Nature'? You seem to have a rainforest talking to you.
Nov 18th 2009 12:37PM So they are making the lich king's palace a tiered event like Sunwell Plateau?
Why don't they just dematerialize the first four bosses into gold and loot for the raiders to spare them the hassle of being inconvenienced by 'weak' bosses?
Why can't they make every boss in Icecrown Citadel as strong as each other instead of giving us an instance where only the last four bosses matter to progress? Please rework your raid system Blizzard. Thank you.

I am a defensive DPS chiming in?
Read my comment; 2 comments down and then determine what class I play then review what you say. I am not a dps and I have never played a dps class at endgame, instead I had a protection warrior that I cleared pre-TBC and TBC with and a restoration shaman that I cleared WotLK with. Do not presume I defended DPS because I am a DPS but that I observe my surroundings well and know that most of the time, if you don't have the dps, you are always fighting the rising tide.
Most fights in WotLK are actually weak upon tanks and healers and it is up to your dps to carry the fight and finish it before you're overwhelmed. Your tank's and healer's gear only affects how long you last under pressure whereas the DPS actually influences your success rate presuming your tanks and healers have the gear and a brain to use it.
Nov 16th 2009 12:27PM The two leader approach doesn't mean that all leaders have to be tank or healer classes, quite the opposite infact.
Such as our guild for example; I am the second in command as a healer who does alot of duties for the guild, while our leader is a warlock who sits pretty. Sitting pretty is an important role, it provides comfort to the other guild members who are quite happy to follow her when I'm the one doing all the work. It's all about deflecting attention.
