The Queue: More like zero class, am I right? {WoW}

Mar 21st 2011 12:00AM To add to that, apparently the act of commenting logged me into the system. But when I click the "edit profile" "change password" or "change avatar" buttons, again nothing happens, even across Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox. I don't have access to another computer to see if it's my problem, but it's still downright annoying, and I wasn't sure where else to ask.

The Queue: More like zero class, am I right? {WoW}

Mar 20th 2011 11:58PM This isn't strictly WoW-related, but...how do I use this site? I managed to sign up a while ago, but setting up a password for commenting has proven to be a pain in the ass. And I can't figure out how to change my avatar or display name. For some reason it defaulted to my actual name, something I'm not entirely comfortable with. But I can't even seem to log in to change anything. When I click the login button under my profile name when it asks "are you Kyle? Login here!" nothing happens. I've tried it on multiple browsers, same thing. A bit of a "How to use the WoW Insider website" tutorial might be useful...

Shifting Perspectives: Feral cat raiding strats for Cataclysm, part 1 {WoW}

Mar 20th 2011 11:53PM While my druid will most likely never see that fight, it's good to know that there is at least some reason to stack druids in bleeding edge content. Even if it's just because of cheesy mechanics, at least we're in a good place.

Raid Rx: Blackwing Descent healing playbook {WoW}

Mar 20th 2011 7:03PM 25 man tips are great and all, but from my understanding the majority of the raiding is in 10's these days. Any 10 man tips?

Around Azeroth: Tornado drill {WoW}

Mar 19th 2011 11:12AM Amusingly, this comes right after we had a tornado in my town. While it wasn't very big, and the damage was limited to tearing the roof off a landscaping company, it's still a very strange thing to have happen in Northern California.

Shifting Perspectives: Embracing the hybrid nature of feral druids {WoW}

Mar 16th 2011 1:40AM I don't personally gem for dodge. preferring straight agil or agil/stam gems, with the occasional agil/mastery gem tossed in for good yellow bonuses. But as for the reforging, dodge is a secondary stat, so you're reforging a non-avoidance stat (like the haste that seems to pop up everywhere) into an avoidance stat. It complements the agility, not runs counter to it.

Gold Capped: How to do the jewelcrafting shuffle {WoW}

Mar 14th 2011 11:46PM Elementium ore is down to 21g a stack on Fizzcrank (Horde). Needless to say, I bought up about 50 stacks of the stuff. At bare minimum prospecting, I'm making about 16g profit per stack. I just wish I had some way of further automating the prospecting process, because this takes forever. I haven't even gotten around to trying to vendor any of it...

Patch 3.3 PTR: Shadow Priest buffs galore in build 10571 {WoW}

Oct 13th 2009 7:57PM First, lemme say: OMG YAY BUFFZ! I leveled my priest as shadow and loved it, but ended up making my main spec Discipline, since healing priests were much more popular than shadow, with its under-performing DPS compared to other classes and lack of unique contribution to the raid. Hopefully this will give us a real shot at becoming competitive, at least on par with other hybrids. It does raise some questions, though. How will the hasted DoT's interact with temporary haste buffs (trinkets, haste pots, the 4-pc t8 set bonus)? Will it simply speed them up for the duration of the buff, or will it be an important part of your rotation to make sure those procs are up before casting to gain the buff?

Breakfast Topic: How to be realm-famous {WoW}

Oct 8th 2009 4:33PM On my server, Fizzcrank-US, Horde side, the most famous person was Newfietauren. He was the guild leader of Hordeland Security, but what made him so famous was his constant and successful raids on Alliance cities. In fact, they were scheduled every Wednesday at the same server time. Sure, the Alliance expected them, but the raids were still successful. The shining moment of glory was when some Alliance were trash-talking us on the realm forums and challenging the Horde, and Newfie organized and lead a TWO HUNDRED MAN RAID on Stormwind. It was epic. Beyond that, we have our infamous trade trolls, like Frisskeh, and a ninja that has multiple threads reporting him on the realm forums, a blood elf DK named Aesdel.

We Have a Tabard: Strange bedfellows {WoW}

Oct 5th 2009 3:47PM My server is rather Alliance-heavy, so when faction changes came out, a group of some of the top Alliance players transferred over to Horde, in a guild called "XFERRING FOR TENACITY". It's changed the progression balance Hordeside a bit, as members have either gone off to bolster the established top raiding guilds, or have stayed in XFT and become a solid progression guild in its own right. Unfortunately, we've also seen an increase in trolls and ninjas who were probably forced out of the Alliance.

I do Wintergrasp fairly regularly, and I am bound to have repeat encounters with the same Alliance players, some of the more hardcore PVPers I recognize and fear from me getting ganked many times. It's always amusing to see one of those names pop up as having joined a pug raid Hordeside. That's one less person to kick my squishy ass.
