Blood Sport: 20% Mortal Wounds {WoW}

Apr 12th 2010 5:12PM That was my wedding song. Good choice.

Breakfast Topic: When it drops it's like magic {WoW}

Feb 19th 2010 8:33AM Took forever to get the Seal of the Pantheon from reg HoL on my warrior. Lost it a couple of times to pallies who who "needed" it for off-spec and once, inexcusably, to a rogue.

Arcane Brilliance: What to do with your trinket slots, Part 1 {WoW}

Blood Pact: 2009 through the Eye of Kilrogg {WoW}

Dec 28th 2009 10:43AM Your acronym is wrong as there's no "C." Perhaps you forgot your INT buff.

Guildwatch: He makes everything better {WoW}

Aug 6th 2009 2:02AM My only...quibbles...with his post...were his overabundant...use of...ellipsis...and the fact that...he used the...phrase "could care less." Other than...that, it was an apt response.

Officers' Quarters: Best in slot {WoW}

Jul 13th 2009 4:00PM If the item was BiS for the pally and not BiS for the other classes, it probably wouldn't be much of an upgrade for the other classes.

Officers' Quarters: Best in slot {WoW}

Jul 13th 2009 3:48PM You should take into account that the article is concerning a situation in which RNG dictates who gets the drop. This essentially places the pally and the shaman on equal footing for the mail belt in question. However, the pally will have more opportunities to upgrade, even if it's not BiS. The shaman, however, can only upgrade with other mail pieces.

In a DKP system such as the one you're talking about, you may have earned the right to outbid the shaman on the belt because you've simply earned more points than the shaman. You're not on equal footing in this situation, so the shaman would have less reason to complain.

Personally, I'd pass and let the shaman spend his DKP (assuming you're using a silent bid system) and wait for a plate drop, even though it may not be BiS. As others have pointed out, it will probably be better for the guild.

Significant changes to Northrend flying mounts discovered on the Patch 3.2 PTR [Updated] {WoW}

Jul 8th 2009 8:50AM No, it clearly would be for only one alt as Zarhym stated, not for all of your alts on one server.

Ulduar items and why they look the same {WoW}

Mar 22nd 2009 6:50PM If that's the case why don't you play Zork?

I don't mind if leveling gear is boring or even mismatched a bit; you'll replace it soon enough. I think Blizzard has done a good job with the color palate in Wrath, but the variety is severely lacking. As a casual, I don't expect to see much in the way of T8, but I do expect to see people walking around in T8 to look cool. I should be impressed. If I have to do inspect your armor to see what you've accomplished, Blizz is doing something wrong.

Leveling gear - who cares.
Mid-tier - Hey, that's nice!
Top-tier - Whoa, that's cool!
