Breakfast Topic: If you could redo features in Wrath, what would they be? {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2010 9:19AM If Blizz is going to be serious about Hard Mode content, I think the right way to do it is how it was in Ulduar, from activation, to using it to unlock more story, to introducing new fight mechanics, and only dropping one hard mode piece of loot that was unique (i.e. not just the normal mode piece with more stats). I guess it just goes to show that they really did it right with Ulduar and everything else raidwise in WotLK just paled in comparison.

Ready Check: Deathbringer Saurfang {WoW}

Jan 15th 2010 3:54PM You can actually one heal this if you've got a pretty good holy pally and kiters that can keep the beasts off of him that also don't take unreasonable damage. With 7 DPS in that set up, you should at most see one mark go out.

WoW Moviewatch: Ninja Raiders {WoW}

Dec 22nd 2009 2:05PM If the first time you heard "single ladies" was on Glee, you should probably get out of Azeroth more often...

Officers' Quarters: More loot-rolling shenanigans {WoW}

Nov 2nd 2009 1:50PM This is a different probability game than the BOK example. In that one, presumably, Wendy, Daisy, and Patricia COULD all legitimately use the piece in question, meaning Wendy is still properly rolling and using a piece when Patricia has the second highest roll. This scenario reads a bit differently when Wendy shouldn't be rolling at all.

In the letter's situation, Patricia and Daisy should both have a 50/50 chance at the piece. With Wendy's involvement, Patricia's drops to 1/3 and Daisy's rises to 2/3.

That all said, I would have no issue whatsoever if the letter's author's actions were above board. Naxx PUGs have become a gigantic cesspool, especially since 3.2 dropped. It typically takes a few OP/pro players to do the few tough jobs (zombies on Gluth, MC on Instructor) who get little reward for their service (typically the emblem returns aren't worth the trouble and they could use at most one piece off KT for a special stat stacking spec). For their service to the PUG, it would only be fair that they be able to roll to help out a guildy. That said, it should be above the board.
