Breakfast Topic: I don't like the word 'toon' {WoW}

Mar 30th 2012 9:43AM The problem is I frequently misspell "character," so I avoid it.

Raid Rx: Mists of Pandaria healing changes {WoW}

Mar 26th 2012 3:27PM Eh, my HoTs still make up most of my actual healing.

I cast a lot of Nourishes, a fair amount of Regrowths, and some HTs. Still, Rejuvenation is consistently my top spell in actual healing numbers, usually followed by Lifebloom and Wildgrowth, with Tranq and Regrowth in the next tier. With my regen, Nourish is a free spell, so I cast it as LB maintenance if nothing else needs doing. It often lands on a tank who doesn't really need healing, and so despite all the casts, it always is low in actual HPS.

Shifting Perspectives: Mega moonkin, fabu ferals, and Symbiosis specs {WoW}

Mar 25th 2012 8:37PM RJ is will handle Life Tap fairly easily, but an actual healer would probably snipe it first. Heck, an affliction lock who times Unstable Affliction just right can Life Tap and be healed before a healer even notices.

So it's situational I guess.

Mar 25th 2012 8:29PM Yeah that's odd. Even as a resto I don't use HT all that much. No idea what a mage would do with it. Cyclone? Roots? Restos get Might of Ursoc (increases health for 20%) -- Could be situationly useful. Ironskin, possibly, which replaces Barkskin.

Bear Hug is a bit of a stretch, but possible for mages - stuns a melee range target and does damage based on your own health. Self-immobilizes. Good for when you pull aggro, maybe

But HT is just odd for mages.

Beta Testing 101: What to, and what not to, expect from the MoP beta {WoW}

Mar 24th 2012 3:23PM And no, you don't get to keep you character when MoP goes live. And yes, you will get annoyed with the people who ask about that every five minutes in chat.

Breakfast Topic: Will your pandaren fit into your character naming convention? {WoW}

Mar 24th 2012 10:55AM My main is Arbolamante -- most, not all of my toons are Arb-something, and "Arb" is what everyone in my guild calls me. (I'm particularly proud of my DK name -- Arbitrary).

Arbear is the obvious riff, but I don't know. Still mulling it over.

Mar 22nd 2012 4:53PM 100%, Vincent. My cat's about the last creature I'd trust with my account information.

Though come to think of it, if it was on a piece of paper, she'd probably just shred it.

Mar 22nd 2012 4:03PM Absolutely. This is prime phising season -- trust no one! (Well, the dog is probably ok. Maybe. I'll get back to you on that.)
