No seriously, why isn't he speding his time:
a) looking for a job
b) cooking, cleaning, household chores (the traditional stay at home role) when you are busting your butt and bringing home the bacon?
Sounds like you are financing his WoW life, but what exactly are you getting out of this?
Feb 27th 2012 2:58PM Spend more time PvPing between the sheets and you two will be just fine.
But seriously (I was being serious above btw...) spend some quality time together out...away from WoW. Don't let a silly thing like WoW cause stress in your marriage.
On the other hand, perhaps he needs some help with his in-game shyness problems (or a firm no-to-pvp from you) . I can't imagine someone who can make and keep real life friends having difficulty spamming trade for a 2's partner, hooking up in vent and having a go at it.
Feb 27th 2012 2:30PM Nice article Anne, I went through the same thought process with my Warlock on deciding between Affliction and Destruction as my offspec to my Demo main spec.
Demo secondary stat priorities: 1993 haste>mastery>haste>=crit
Destro secondary stat priorities: 2681 haste>mastery>crit>haste
Affliciton secondary stat priorities: haste>crit>mastery
Based on the above I chose Destro as my offspec. It is still an issue on getting enough gear to convert roughly 700 mastery to haste, but simcraft shows only a few hundred dps loss if I can't quite get to 2681 haste.
I have no qualms about rolling on LFR gear to get a second set of gear or on rolling offspec for gear in my guild. Unfortunately as previously stated, the chance of me getting off spec gear is very low (especially for trinkets and rings)
Feb 27th 2012 12:16PM You could also use guild funds to pay gold to guild members (and their high level alts) and new recruits to max out their guild rep/guild achievements/professions/dailies every day/week. That way the guild grows faster and you are reinvesting guild proceeds (from selling BoEs, etc) back into the guild.
Feb 15th 2012 10:25AM On Mal'Ganis you would be even more jealous as the staffs are obtained multiple times per night. In fact I only got to sit in holo-dragon form for about a minute before being bumped.

Feb 13th 2012 1:17PM This whole idea of RP romance is interesting and I cannot understand how anyone could fall in love via the interactions with a toon unless they are projecting themselves and the other person onto their respective charaters.
I don't know how anyone does it without one person getting serious, especially if it's via Vent. I can imagine one person pushing the boundary a little more each time, and every positive reaction from the other person (intentional or not) being taken as serious flirting.
So the comments above about knowing/setting your limits seem appropriate.
If you are married or in a relationship (in RL), do you consider RP romance cheating? Do you think your spouse would be understanding?
I can imaging trying to explain a RP romance to my wife...that would go over well. As long as I defined "well" as out the door on my @ss.
Oh yeah, about the cold shoulder issue. I would ask someone else in the guild. It could very well be that he believes you led him on and told everyone as much. Not having any information about the nature of your RP romance, it is hard to tell if you are a victim here of a vindictive, jilted RP lover OR unintentionally had some part to play in the end result.
Feb 7th 2012 1:56PM I don't think Tyler liked playing a Warlock very much, so let's get some new blood to spill in here...errr I mean someone else to write the column.
Feb 2nd 2012 9:55AM I suggest you go to www.simulationcraft.org and download SimCraft and use it.
That way you will know exactly how much damage her spec can produce under optimal conditions.
If you are in the ballpark of that number, just improve her gear.
If she is nowhere near that number, go hit the practice dummies until it is.
