Breakfast Topic: What's the one thing you can't wait to find out about Mists? {WoW}

Mar 27th 2012 11:10AM A full list of symbiosis abilities and for blizzard to tell people it's to help fill the holes in the Druid spec so people will stop complaining about what they do and don't get from the spell.

Blue Posts: Ghostcrawler returns saying no to warlock tanking spec {WoW}

Mar 27th 2012 1:16AM I like how every xpac locks think they can tank and every xpac that turns out to be false yet you keep falling for it.
Just assume you can't then you won't be disappointed

Blizzard laying off 600 staff globally [Updated] {WoW}

Feb 29th 2012 3:35PM Eh they cut unnecessary people every year this really isn't anything new and they weren't only Blizzard employes Activision cut some to.
Though remember the mass layoff rumor in November? this is probably that.

These cuts were in the Q1 financial report.

Blizzard laying off 600 staff globally [Updated] {WoW}

Feb 29th 2012 3:25PM They may have been unnecessary for years big company's often make cuts to there work force when they realize they have been paying them for nothing.

Doesn't mean its good that people lost there jobs, that still sucks. But this is nothing new tbh.

Also remember in November when we got those mass layoff rumors? This could very well be that cause these cuts were in there Q1 report.
http://wow.joystiq.com/2011/11/08/rumored-mass-layoffs-at-blizzard-never-happened/

Though the same thing happened in 2008 http://ocbiz.ocregister.com/2008/09/11/more-layoffs-at-blizzard-activision-but-none-affect-irvine-co/

In 2010 they reshuffled and laid off people as well.

Shifting Perspectives: Are druid abilities getting a trim in Mists of Pandaria? {WoW}

Feb 11th 2012 6:43PM Yep i use it for regrowth, there fast and cost more mana making it more efficient to use clearcasts on.
There also easier to fit into a nourish rotation then HT, cause HT takes double the time to cast.
Im not saying i never use it but its a very low number of casts per fight compared to other spells. Maybe 3-5 casts for HT in any given fight on average.

In my experience (Might be different then you) HT isn't really needed when you have regrowth, swiftmend and nourish except maybe to spot heal which normally gets a rejuv or picked up from Wild Growth/efflorescence that gets spammed on CD.
Im not saying some don't use it hell some used it in wrath, but is it really needed to get the job done or just a playstyle choice?

Breakfast Topic: What's the best quest zone in the game? {WoW}

Feb 11th 2012 11:22AM Storm peaks and twilight highlands, both have fun interesting quests that are heavy on lore.

Shifting Perspectives: Are druid abilities getting a trim in Mists of Pandaria? {WoW}

Feb 10th 2012 7:41PM Not talking about CC, ability's/talents i wouldn't mind seeing die or get changed drastically Healing Touch and Living Seed.

Yes you can say healing touch is are one big heal but how much do you actually use it even for tank healing? its slow and uses a ton of mana.
In my experience Lifebloom/rejuv and nourish spam are not only faster but are more cost effective. Honestly if they killed it i wouldn't mind though it may hurt a lowbie druid im not sure (Haven't leveled a druid in 4 years)

Living Seed on the other hand has needed a revamp for years its a waste of 3 talent points that could go in more healing or damage reduction, why is it so bad?
It only works on the tank (cause what druid doesn't use mostly AoE heals on the raid), it doesn't proc off of anything but direct healing crits i.e. nourish regrowth or healing touch, it doesn't heal the target through AoE damage, the heal if it actually goes off before it runs off the target doesn't scale well with crit or spellpower and it on heals melee damage when nowadays the big threat to a tank or raid is AoE damage. So many problems don't really justify the one thing it does right.

You could say, well its free in MoP so who cares. Then why not just kill it? Instead i would like to see it changed to heal through a amount (even a small amount) of AoE damage and when a damage effect procs it it has a chance to spread the heal portion to 2 other people within a certain range.
Atleast then there would be a point to having it in our spellbooks.

Breakfast Topic: How and why did you leave your previous guild? {WoW}

Feb 8th 2012 9:18AM I'm the same way, 3 guilds now and all within about 17 months.

Ol' Grumpy and the specter of pointless elitism {WoW}

Feb 3rd 2012 4:09AM I have waited till the last boss in hour of twilight to kick a fury warrior who queued as a tank.
Sure I could have healed him through the rest of the dungeon but he was an ass, I did it to prove a point to the whole group that you shouldn't queue as a tank if your a dps.

Kicking a dps that's doing less then you (unless it's unreasonable dps like 3k cause he's only using auto shot after you have said something to him) is stupid.
Your not awesome cause your doing more than someone in less gear and mentioning to the group just makes you look like a asshat.

Instead if being a ass why don't you try to help? Takes two seconds people. You asked for help once whether a friend or reading a guide you asked for help so stop being a tool.
