How to level up using the Dungeon Finder {WoW}

Dec 29th 2011 4:17PM Good article, thanks. I levelled my healer priest almost exclusively from 18-85 using the dungeon finder. I did a few quests at the beginning of the xpac zones for the gear upgrades & then straight back into the LFD queues.

It was an absolute blast! And as a bonus i think i became quite a good healer in the process. Reflexes sharpened & instincts honed.

The random players I met were on the whole pretty cool & helpful. The fact we were all still levelling & as such still learning our class & role appeared to be taken into account & people were mostly encouraging & the atmosphere relaxed.

Unfortunately I found attitudes changed quite a bit in the random lvl 85 normal & heroic dungeons for some reasons. Yes, they were a bit harder, but healing still had the same mechanics, I just popped cooldowns more regularly. However attitudes of some tanks and to a lesser extent some dps ers made the runs less fun, and the ones that go well seemed to be the silent kill-fests.

Maybe i'm just a sensitive soul, but my enthusiasm has waned at max level.

Cool Vid as always.

Gold Capped: Why Mysterious Fortune Cards will always be stupidly profitable {WoW}

Nov 21st 2011 3:52PM I have a love-hate relationship with these damn cards. I have no problem milling & crafting them, but my problem is that I just can't resist flipping a couple before selling them. Than a couple more, and then a few more, then.......well you get the idea.

It's odd, because IRL i'm not the compulsive gambler at all.

WoW Archivist: How each WoW expansion set the tone, part 2 {WoW}

Nov 14th 2011 7:45PM Maybe it was only me, but the Lich King always seemed a portly boorish beast, rather than a lean mean fighting machine, as he popped up. Kinda reminded me of how I imagine Henry VIII.

That all changed with heroic HOR :)

Aug 7th 2011 6:04PM You are all going to laugh at me, but i just like the casting sound of frost spells. They are very soothing in the middle of a chaotic PUG. For me, that is enough to persist, so thanks Mr Pants for this great article!

Jul 31st 2011 6:53PM Q for the Q: Whan viewing the world map, are all of the zones in Kalimdor & Eastern Kingdoms of the same scale with respect to each other? It's just that it appears to me that the zones added in Cataclysm seem larger than the neighbouring zones which appear to be of similar size on the world map if you get my drift. Thanks :)

Encrypted Text: The subtlety experiment {WoW}

Jul 13th 2011 10:27PM Good article, thanks. I really enjoy playing sub, although as an older, casual player my poor brain, dementing muscle memory & slowing reflexes can't cope with spec changes between levelling, dungeons & pvp. As such I have 2 sub specs for 5-man runs & pvp with similar keybinds for each. I think the healers appreciate the extra help (maybe), but my dps is average at best. 4.2 has helped a bit as hemo spec means quicker cp generation & I dont have to worry about positioning as much. Has anyone any comments on a bleed spec in 4.2 & dps (5-mans or otherwise)?.

Jun 22nd 2011 11:46PM ".....asically makes the ability useless. It won't take the devs long to figure it out,"

/agree

"and they'll change it again soon."

This I'm not so sure about. Remember Vanish? XD

Jun 22nd 2011 6:07PM I'm not sure if we did or didn't need a nerf, but the way it has been done makes no sense to me. Either they should remove CR from the game & leave CoS as is or put CR on a shared cooldown with evasion. Is this a fair assessment or have I missed something?
