Breakfast Topic: I suck at playing mage {WoW}

Apr 25th 2010 1:05PM If you go with holy/disc dps solo (which i highly endorse), glyph of smite http://www.wowhead.com/item=42416

Spec hard into anything inholy that improves smite or holy fire, then all disc for survival and utility. Keep up all buffs and a shield (specc'd will keep you alive and give a dps boost through reflective shield in disc), open with PW:pain and Dev. plague (both optional, as they can destroy your mana pool), holy fire and only smite while the mob has the hf debuff. If there is a time when you cant HF or smite (since HF is not on the target), Mind Blast does wonders for filler. Holy Fire whenever you can. Definitely get desperate prayer still in holy, lifesaving.

You'll have pretty bad mana regen early on... so stock up on drinks. If it becomes a problem (which is very possible), shadow spec for imp spirit tap should help. you can even go so far as getting mind flay, since this is very useful on mobs that run away, or when fearing. Speccing that far also improves your SW:pain, Mind Blast, and devouring plague, which are super useful for the extra damage, and they wont cost as much with the talents you'll prolly get.

And most important: keep up your shields! pw:shield and inner fire are awesome.

XD ...more than i was planning on posting.

Breakfast Topic: Who gets to grow up? {WoW}

Apr 19th 2010 10:57PM Some of my friends call the new model "Bitchface Jaina".

Generally it does look nicer, but... bitchface.

The Queue: Conclusions {WoW}

Apr 19th 2010 10:41PM I'd love to see fishing become slightly more complex. I mean, at least something more than "push this button, and then push that button."

Breath of Fire had some great fishing games... Okami, even Gaia's fishing is more interesting. I'd stay away from Animal Crossing fishing though, that's pretty similar to what wow's doing right now. Still, some interest in the fishing game would be fun... lures with effects? Interesting. Specialized Fishing Poles? New fishing style? It just seems like a chore as it is, though that kinda is the way Blizz has decided to run their gathering professions.

Maybe I'm just being picky... I'm prolly spoiled with other games' fishing. I'm not really expecting Cooking to become more like other cooking-themed games, really. Hmm.

Know Your Lore: Current Horde politics -- the tauren, page 2 {WoW}

Apr 18th 2010 9:32PM Should also be mentioned that Xarantaur was originally some guy on the WoW forums who would answer lore questions, and Blizzard added him in Wrath because of his apparent popularity. So, in saying that, it's actually possible for you to ask Xarantaur himself (in real life) about his own backstory. lol

Spiritual Guidance: Priest gems for raid roles {WoW}

Apr 18th 2010 8:56PM It does give you a decent at-a-glance at their potential, but it's also possible that the gear score is being gathered from gear that is absolutely terrible for their spec in some way or another. I think it's probably a better idea to look at the items and ask if there's anything uncertain about gear choices, personally.

Know Your Lore: Current Horde politics -- the tauren, page 2 {WoW}

Apr 17th 2010 8:41PM I believe this! This would make sense. Imagine Garrosh and his crew splintering from the Horde, and being some other faction in Northrend (because that's where most of their own allies seem to be).

I hope that Cairne gets out, at least, and survives whatever's about to happen to him. I also hope Baine is a bit more decisive about the Grimtotem.

I also hope Thunder Bluff is still decently un-destroyed in cataclysm. It's my favorite old-world hub city still.

Arcane Brilliance: Stealing spells for fun and profit {WoW}

Apr 17th 2010 7:56PM And wrong again, that's all PVE spells.

Soooo... posing the question again, lol. Anybody know offhand?

Arcane Brilliance: Stealing spells for fun and profit {WoW}

Apr 17th 2010 7:46PM @Vanterax

Juuust noticed you posted that. I'm pretty sure I'll find the answer there.

Arcane Brilliance: Stealing spells for fun and profit {WoW}

Apr 17th 2010 7:44PM Question from an amateur mage to all you beautiful sparkling professionals:

Can you steal Starfall?

Or any other spell that i can't think of that works like it, i mean, being it's not channeled, it's more like a buff, or aura or something that you burst and then keep doing whatever you were doing prior.

Shifting Perspectives: Moonkin, a history, Page 2 {WoW}

Apr 16th 2010 8:38PM @People talking about the forms: I don't particularly love Moonkin form's visual either, honestly. I'd like a minor glyph to change this to some other druidy thing if possible, though it is pretty hilarious to be this big crazy mix of random animals that can somehow call down the fury of the stars on people.

@Article: Very nice run through this history. I had only started as Balance after Lich King, having been Resto from when i started (last patch of BC) to now. I had switched to Cat for a while while just farming quests for loremaster, but... even with all the benefits of that spec while questing... it wasn't the same. I had to switch back to Moonkin again. I love all the abilities, the fact that you can sustain damage or unleash enormous burst damage (and then have very little power for a while), all of this. In fact, while questing in NR, I've found only maybe 4 elites that I couldn't solo as moonkin (I was able to burst all cooldowns and take out an elite dragon in Howling Fjord (can't remember the name) when i was about 3 levels below it... it was pretty amazing. Keeping in mind i also had mixology and the herbalism heal.) It's just such a fun class/spec. I'm glad I got to it right when it started making some real headway.
