Two Bosses Enter: Ozruk vs. Lord Godfrey {WoW}

May 17th 2011 2:20AM The fight was going well for Lord Godfrey, when Ozruk began casting his Ground Slam. Quick as a flash, Godfrey ducked behind Ozruk, opened the space between them and let rip with a pistol barrage straight from the fires of hell itself. And then, bizarrely, Godfrey keeled over dead.
Apparently the server thought he was still in ground slam range. If only Godfrey's latency had been better, but alas, he's based in Gilneas and all the servers are in Stormwind.

Breakfast Topic: How do you cope with broken addons? {WoW}

May 11th 2011 8:28AM How do I deal with broken addons? I wipe, apparently.
With MSBT broken after 4.1, I turned the default WoW combat text back on. While trying to tank H:ToT, I couldn't see the incoming water spout on the first boss, and got one-shot.
There are SO MANY NUMBERS! Default WoW combat text is like trying to drown your enemies in numbers. Never thought combat text addons would be as vital as they've turned out to be.

The Queue: Hey it's Thursday, and that's awesome {WoW}

May 5th 2011 11:33AM Q for the Q:
Why aren't shoulder enchants BoA like they were in Wrath of the Lich King? It seems overly onerous to have to complete the entire Deepholm zone with every 85 I have without inscription. In Wrath at least, the faction could be unlocked without having to complete the entire zone, and then you could buy your way to exalted. The current grind is brutal even for the first toon to hit 85.
Are there any plans to make them BoA?

Breakfast Topic: Has your account ever been compromised? {WoW}

Apr 19th 2011 8:29AM Yes, I have the problem continuously! At least once a day!
I'm not on a 6 month plan, I'm on month-to-month, but there are a few factors that could make my situation worse: I regularly use the mobile AH app (different IP), I play through a 3G modem and I use whichever WoW tunnel has the best latency at the time (choice of two).

If anyone can shed light on this, I'll buy them a hyacinth macaw or something.

Breakfast Topic: Has your account ever been compromised? {WoW}

Apr 19th 2011 8:20AM No, definitely no kudos for that. I was locked out of my account SIX times this weekend because of this 'security' measure, and two of those times were consecutive lockouts - where I was locked out immediately after being forced to change my password.

It's driving me absolutely mental, and if anyone can help me figure out how to turn it off, I would be hugely grateful! My housemate, who's been having a break from WoW, recently decided to re-sign and give it another go - only to find the same lockout triggered from some unknown cause. That was the end of his return.

(Otherwise - mobile authenticator is the best dollar you'll ever spend. Just do it. No excuse not to have it)

Know Your Lore: Interbellum part 5 -- Atop the Frozen Throne {WoW}

Apr 14th 2011 3:08AM Busuan speaks the truth!
The sad thing is, the closest Deathwing comes to having a personality is in the Day that Deathwing Came series of quests. Which are brilliant, fair enough, but I'd hope the Big Bad of Cataclysm would be more than comic relief in an obscure chain in a remote lowby area.

Encrypted Text: Dissecting rogue stats {WoW}

Apr 7th 2011 5:42AM I just can't shake the feeling that expertise is undervalued as assassination.
The reasoning I've seen is that the envenom buff is applied, even if the attack doesn't land.

But then.. my poisons won't proc if the attack doesn't land, so the buff would be meaningless if I was dodged. In fact, other than my deadly poisons ticking away, not a single point of poison damage can be done if my attack is dodged. So even as assassination, with most of my damage coming from auto attack and poisons, surely expertise should be valued only just under the spell hit cap?

Can someone please explain this to me?

Two Bosses Enter: Lord Godfrey vs. Scourgelord Tyrannus! {WoW}

Mar 29th 2011 2:50AM When you say power, I'm pretty sure you mean.....

"Power... overwhelming!"

Mar 25th 2011 3:56AM No, most healing add-ons have this built into them. I'd recommend any of the big three - Vuh-do, Grid + Clique or Healbot. Personally, I use Vuh-do for my priest healing (shows the various priestly buffs a bit better) and Grid for my resto shaman (works nicely with the very direct form of shaman healing)
