WoW Moviewatch: Vashjir Harvest Moon {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2012 5:58AM Loved the tune (once it got going 2 mins in), but the video just had me wishing it would concentrate on one scene at a time rather than overlaying 2 or 3 together.

Good effort though, will probably sub to his channel.

WoW Moviewatch: Beautiful Stranger {WoW}

Feb 21st 2012 7:24PM Terribad. Seriously, pretty poor. This looks like a machinima produced about 6 years ago.

Plus the title of the thing is Beautiful Stranger, not Sister.

The Light and How to Swing It: 2 tanking wishes for Mists {WoW}

Feb 11th 2012 9:10AM I guess I'm old school and wish we went back to tanks being responsible for maintaining threat on mobs and having healers heal. Active mitigation to me seems like it'd be very hairy at times (hello DK tanks), or it'd feel as though what you're doing isn't having much noticeable impact in the fight.

DPS and Healers get to flaunt their meter stats, and when tanks were responsible for threat, at least we could boast or be complimented on our ability to retain mobs attention. With an active mitigation model, to me at least there's the very real possibility that effective tanking will largely feel impactless in the general course of a fight.

Tanks are meant to be the primary focus for healers to keep alive in raids, with themselves and dps as secondary concerns. If tanks are giving healers less to do then healers as well will maybe start to feel as though their job description has been gutted as well.

The Light and How to Swing It: We should never have had a block chance mastery {WoW}

Jan 21st 2012 10:45AM Quick question: Why is Rhidach/Matt still the Tankadin writer here when he's no longer playing the game? He's buggered off to SW:TOR and left his blog readers hanging without any word. Nice.

Breakfast Topic: How often do you switch specs? {WoW}

Jan 11th 2012 9:33AM I tank in raids, and tend to heal everything else. Love my pally, but I am levelling a priest for raid healing.

Luo is female.

Personally I tend, as a male, to exclusively play female characters. I tank, heal and dps but I prefer the aesthetics of wow female models.

Is it time to kill tanking? {WoW}

Aug 26th 2011 12:45PM Pretty much like a lot of tanks here, I love tanking but hate pugs.

And it's ALWAYS the DPS that are the problem. First to complain, first to moan if the healer has to MB, first to whinge if they focus dps the wrong target and pull aggro even though I always skull my main target to provide a visual cue for them (bless).

I try to run more 5 mans these days but it's mainly for guildies, and any time I decide to give pugs another go, the shitty incompetent DPS always ruin it. Always.

The Light and How to Swing It: 4 tips for upping your combat table coverage {WoW}

Jul 20th 2011 8:52PM Well now I'm at the CTC cap, well just a smidge over tbh, average ilevel 361.

Use Mastery food & Elixir of the Master to help you get there.

As for any cap, once you hit the 102.4% stop stacking mastery and either go for more straight avoidance (dodge & parry), or go for threat stats instead (hit & expertise).

Jul 15th 2011 7:01PM ATM I'm .76% off the CTC cap, but would ultimately like to hit it without buff food.

Ready Check: Catacysm raid changes a tier later {WoW}

Jun 17th 2011 5:14PM Catacysm?

Send out a search party for the missing L! :P
