The Dragon Soul -- a post-mortem {WoW}

Mar 30th 2012 4:42PM While the raid does make sense lore wise and logically during the Cataclysm story, the mechanics of each fight are just too simple and dull to even put this raid in the 7/10 category.

Morchok is a simple tank and spank (even on heroic mode, just x2) where you simply run away at one mechanic and make sure the crystal explodes with people near.

Yor'Sahj is a dull boss where the only interesting mechanic is killing an extra add to prevent the encounter becoming a nightmare.

Zon'ozz, as you stated, is still bugged after 4 months with the ball, which is ridiculous.

Hagara is interesting in the lightning conductor sense, however the trash just takes way too long and is literally in all sense, terrible

Ultraxion is the worst boss I've ever encountered in any raid ever. Other than being a healer to gain a buff, you don't have to move an inch, and you simply press a button placed RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR SCREEN before HoT and FL. Algalon had the same mechanic and made it interesting with black holes for big bang that will be closed if you bring constellations with you.

Warmaster feels like Heigen from Naxxramas where it's simply mobs after mobs, then once Warmaster drops down you can nuke him within a bloodlust. No sense of the word "fun".

Spine is unique in the sense that we've never been on a bosses back before, and the rolling around mechanic makes it somewhat interesting. I don't have much to say other than that it becomes extremely stale after doing it 2-3 times.

Madness however, is THE WORST end game boss I've ever encountered. There is nothing I can do to praise this encounter. We kill the same things 4 times in a row then have to attack a stationary Deathwing Head to 1% for Thrall to make him blow up. It is the worst thing I have ever seen in a WoW raid.

Many people have asked for it to become an ingame class.

What happened to the Memories of Blizzard contest? I remember that it had stopped and was waiting for people to vote their favourite videos, but I can't seem to find any link.

Officers' Quarters: Wrath of the orange stick {WoW}

May 17th 2011 8:17AM Yep, even our guild, The Three Hammers on Defias Brotherhood-EU, have begun raiding; we've downed most bosses in 1 or 2 attempts, and atramedes in under an hour. Our only problem at the moment is we can only raid once a week, but plan for 2 or maybe 3 times later on ^^

Patch 4.2: Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest proc potentially uncovered {WoW}

May 14th 2011 8:28AM This is good PVE wise, but we're going to have another Skillmourne season in arena. If you think about people doing, say, a 30k crit on you, that's 60k; plus the fact there's barely any arcane resistance spells (I know there's a racial one for Gnomes, Nether ward does a 15% damage reduction), this is going to be very overpowered in the right hands.

May 13th 2011 7:25PM I'd like to name a character Oak and get the Professor title.

And I've seen a shaman called Salty Scrototem.

You could also call yourself Aura and get the Crusader title.

The Light and How to Swing It: Don't trust your mana bar {WoW}

May 9th 2011 6:13AM I knew something was off as well. During the Omnotron encounter we were taking quite a bit of aoe dmg and I was left at 10% mana (fight was at around 5% hp) so I tried to do Holy Radiance. Now I was at 10% mana and the holy radiance icon wasn't greyed out to indicate I didn't have enough mana, so I spammed the ability only to get on the screen "Not enough mana", so I used a judgement, the mana bar stayed at 10% THEN I was able to use it.

Weird stuff.

Breakfast Topic: What are your Warcraft movie predictions? {WoW}

Apr 8th 2011 8:57AM Uwe Boll actually asked Blizzard if he could direct the film, and they instantly said no.

Uwe Boll: “I got in con­tact with Paul Sams of Bliz­zard, and he said, ‘We will not sell the movie rights, not to you…especially not to you. Because it’s such a big online game suc­cess, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongo­ing income, what the com­pany has with it.”
