Apr 18th 2011 8:20PM Does guild chat work an any realm If you are already a remote subscriber or only those listed in the blue post? I just tried it and it tells me "The free preview of Remote Guild Chat is not yet enabled for this realm"...grrrrrr

The Queue: American Old Gods {WoW}

Apr 15th 2011 1:33PM "While Blizzard has made leveling and gearing alts significantly easier in recent years, it's still pretty unlikely that we'll be able to send what amounts to endgame currency from one character to another. Essentially, by making it so only one of your characters has to be the endgame content workhorse, they would be encouraging you not to raid or do heroics on your other characters, or at least do both of those much less. What we need right now is not for fewer people to be in dungeon queues, that's for damn sure."

I couldn't disagree more. I think allowing the sharing of valor points between characters of a single account would increase the number of tanks, not decrease them. As a player with a number of 85s, I would tank randoms all day long for VP due to the short queues if I could share them. The only problem with this solution would be how to manage the VP caps (maybe the weekly cap times the number of 85s on the account...still could be abused, but better than a single cap) when multiple toons are valor point capable. This along with shorter dungeons and potentially disabling running a random as a full guild run (i.e. Having at least one position be a pugger) would go a long ways towards lowering dps queue times.

Scattered Shots: Hunter addons {WoW}

Apr 14th 2011 4:15PM Tidy plates is a great addon regardless of your role (as a hunter it is great to determine when your pet has/loses aggro).

GTFO is another addon that we have just recently required on our raid team. It provides sounds when there is avoidable damage that you should be moving out of (as in..."get the eff out" of the fire).

Feb 10th 2010 1:35PM ...as opposed to the tank/healer that accept the queue only to leave the dungeon once they find out which one it is. OR the most aggregious move of all time...tanking in HoR through the first 5 waves and first boss and then leaving, essentially ensuring that the rest of the group will wipe.
