Arcane Brilliance: Things I want to see changed, arcane edition {WoW}

Mar 20th 2011 2:02AM @raven.quiet.storm:

Thank you! Playing fire has been giving me a complex, because I'm just not seeing the numbers that I expect to see. Not even close! It's really making me crazy, thinking that there must be SOMETHING that I'm missing, because I can't even get up over 10k in heroics, and Fire is supposed to be this super awesome destroy everything spec.

I mean, I'm sure there IS something that I'm doing wrong, but the fact that I consistently outperform my mage on my enhancement shaman depresses me to a point you can't even imagine. Sigh.

Taking out the trash {WoW}

Jan 27th 2011 11:54AM Karazhan, hands-down. I liked the Ulduar trash (though I have to admit, playing an enhancement shaman through the Mimiron trash had me eating a lot of floor), but Kara always had something interesting around the next corner. The part that filled me with dread was when you climbed your way to the top of the backside of the castle, and the ethereals came out and began to eat everyone's face. That was an ouchy moment.

Breakfast Topic: Does gender influence class choice? {WoW}

Aug 27th 2010 12:13PM It's funny-- I think I enjoy the game a lot more when there's a female tanking. Especially in raids. Female tanks tend to be more level-headed and relaxed, in my experience. I think it has to do with the fact that when a female decides that they want that role, they KNOW they want it, and have made a conscious decision to take control of it. Any guy will tank, and some of them just DO NOT have the mental make-up to really do that job well.

By the way, I'm male, and have been playing since about 3 months before BC came out. My first main was a shaman that I played exclusively as Enhancement until the release of Ulduar. My current main is a mage, and I also have a DK tank.

The loose ends of Arko'narin {WoW}

Apr 27th 2010 9:46AM Easy there, killer. I don't think he was suggesting replacing the loremaster achievement, or lowering the criteria for getting the achievement, just adding something side-by-side to it. He did add that it might be called "Loremaster LITE" for crying out loud.

Honestly, I like this idea. Blizz picks out the best bits of storytelling that they've created and packages them up for us, saying "make sure you catch THESE."

And I know they're not old-school, but I love the Harrison Jones escort quest in Zul'drak and the Bronze Dragonshrine "protect the hourglass" quests (especially when you return-- first time I came back at 80 and realized what I was doing, I thought it was hilarious).

Breakfast Topic: I suck at playing mage {WoW}

Apr 25th 2010 11:07AM I played an enhancement shaman more or less exclusively from about three months before BC until about a year ago, when I started playing a mage. I don't know what it was-- the casting, how easy it was to stay out of fire, the joy of casting frost nova, blinking away, and killing ten mobs at once with improved blizzard... but whatever it was, I fell completely and totally in love and haven't looked back. Not bad for a toon that was made solely to annoy my guild leader...

Arcane Brilliance: Macros for mages {WoW}

Mar 28th 2010 12:47AM actually, I just tried using this in a raid. Mirror image stops everything under it from working. I scratched my head trying to figure out what it was until I went line by line through the macro. Made for an interesting raid.
