The Care and Feeding of Warriors: PVP with a PVE spec -- fury {WoW}

Sep 3rd 2011 7:23PM I'm far from a Fury pro, but I'm pretty sure you can at least use hamstring in Berserker Stance.

Other than that though, I tend to just ignore my utility as Fury. Focus on nuking down individuals as fast as possible for the best results.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: PVP with a PVE spec -- fury {WoW}

Sep 3rd 2011 4:37PM I PvPed as Prot all the way through Wrath, and loved the control you had. Multiple charges, stuns, silences and spell reflect made for a very engaging fight. The idea of losing all those things and PvPing as Fury seemed ridiculous at the time.

When I went Fury main spec in Cata, I gace it a try, and was surprised at simply how fun just mashing buttons to kill people is. With Fury, it's all just about killing people as fast as possible, and it's a great way to PvP - you kill fast or you die fast.

Officers' Quarters: Downsized {WoW}

Aug 29th 2011 7:28PM I'm sick of seeing this type of comment so I'll take a different stab at explaining how I see it.

"Hey Bill, wanna come for a drink tonight?"
"No thanks, I'm raiding tonight."

"Bill we're seeing a movie tonight, wanna come along?"
"Ah sorry, can't tonight, raiding, maybe tomorrow".

Bill rushes home from work, forks down a quick meal and jumps straight onto his PC, ready for the raid he's been looking forward to all day.

"Right, I'm here, let rock and roll!"
"Oh, sorry Bill, you didn't hear? John couldn't make it tonight, raids cancelled".

Now imagine that happening to 24 different people. See how if you push WoW aside because its just A GAME you can ruin an evening for a lot of people at once? If Bill asks why John didn't turn up, and gets told a relative of his died, Bill would completely understand. If, on the other hand, John just no-showed and then the next day when questioned just said "oh right yeah I forgot, went out drinking instead, don't take it too seriously ITS JUST A GAME LOL!!!1" you can imagine that people would be pissed. Now imagine officers that have to deal with people like this constantly.

In this situation, the officer over-reacted because he didn't know the situation, and he apologised once he found out. But going mental about it because its just 'a game' is ridiculous.

Officers' Quarters: Downsized {WoW}

Aug 29th 2011 7:15PM Bear in mind that the officer didn't know about the real life situation, he was mailing after someone didn't attend a raid. It's true that the offficer shouldn't have been harsh when he didn't know the circumstances at all, but remember that officers have to put up with a lot of bullshit excuses. The fact that he apologised once he found out what had happened to me shows he just got annoyed at something and didn't realise he was being harsh to someone who had a genuine excuse.

Also, please don't point out the fact that this is a game and make it seem like that makes it completely unimportant. If you don't show up for a 25 man raid, and because of that it doesn't go ahead, you're not hurting the GAME you're hurting the 24 other REAL people who wanted to raid but couldn't because of you. It's completely right that he took time off raids after what happened in real life, its not OK to say that the game isn't important because its just a game - there are other real people playing it too.
