Totem Talk: Restoration gearing for the new 80 {WoW}

Mar 16th 2010 6:43PM When Brewfest comes around, be sure to try for the Ancient Pickled Egg http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49078 it still compares well to the iLevel 251+ trinkets because of the +haste.

The Daily Quest: Showing off your UI {WoW}

Mar 16th 2010 12:02AM @toddcore
You are entirely correct my good man, i just saw the Jesus beams and assumed they were a shammy, i did wonder how they had their character so far down the bottom. Teach me not to pay attention.

The Daily Quest: Showing off your UI {WoW}

Mar 15th 2010 9:58PM From an aesthetic point of view, sure it's pretty and clean, but from a usability viewpoint, it could be better.

1. Player health is in top corner. The action is in the middle of the screen, it's probable the player will have trouble keeping track of his status like mana or health unless they have a mod like power auras to notify them. Move the player frame nearer to your character.
2. Raid frames are spread out across the screen. To move from someone on the left of the raid frames to the right requires a large movement of the mouse, the raid frames should ideally be bunched up to minimize movement, A grid like format is best for that.
3. Recount constantly displayed. Unless they are an officer, it should be hidden in combat, otherwise it's just a distraction.

The goal is to reduce hand and eye movement as much as possible saving your eyes from straining, your hand from moving too much, and your fellow players from dying because it took you .7secs to move your mouse to their frame instead of .4secs.

In-Game Fixes for March 4th, 2010 {WoW}

Mar 4th 2010 10:34PM For those who think this is a nerf, compare pre and post nerf Magtheridon.

Officers' Quarters: PvPvRaid {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2010 1:07AM http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/basics/chat-customization.html

-Put your guild chat, trade, officer, raid and party in different tabs from your "general" and you'll never miss a chat ever again.
-Get WIM (WoW instant messenger) and you'll NEVER miss a whisper again.

How to tell if a GM is whispering you {WoW}

Feb 4th 2010 8:08PM I thought GM whispers have a BLIZZ logo next to their names now.

" A Game Master's whisper will always begin with {blizzlogo}followed by their name and so can easily be distinguished from a player’s whisper."

Pulling aggro in PUGs: who's to blame {WoW}

Jan 14th 2010 7:32PM Instead of bagging on the tanks, maybe you should ask if the dps are smart enough to use the abilities blizz has given them.

Tricks of the trade, a little feign death or misdrection, invisibility, fade, wind shear, soul shatter, sanctuary will go along way.

The Queue: Late night with WoW.com {WoW}

"Blue dragons are peaceful creatures, but very territorial. Once a blue dragon has claimed a certain territory, woe to any — even dragons of their own flight - who enter into that area without permission."
"A blue dragon does not hesitate to attack if his territory is disturbed or invaded and is somewhat xenophobic."

Of course, you could say that about most dragons. The ones in Northrend are only nice because they are fighting against a common enemy and need all the allys they can get.

The Queue: Late night with WoW.com {WoW}

Dec 7th 2009 11:04PM Step 1. Go here: http://www.wowwiki.com/Winterspring
Step 2. Read it, particularly this bit:

"This otherwise cold and serene place shakes with periodic conflict between the forces of the sorcerer-dragon Cobaltann and the night elves who strive to drive them from the slopes of Mount Hyjal."

Then follow the link to here http://www.wowwiki.com/General_Colbatann which talks about the General. Then maybe even follow the link to here: http://www.wowwiki.com/Mazthoril where you will read this:

"The blue dragons here are primarily on watch for activity from the black dragonflight...to this end, the blue dragonflight organizes an army here...to protect the world from the increasing threat of the black dragons"
