How to protect your healer {WoW}

Feb 16th 2012 7:23PM The addon Healers Must Die! has a nifty extra feature--it tells you when a healer on your own team is being attacked, and by whom. Great big can't-miss-'em letters. Highly useful.

Dec 25th 2010 1:40PM A Christmas mouse? Yes please!

Breakfast Topic: A crowning moment of noobishness {WoW}

Sep 11th 2010 1:35PM How 'bout this--my first toon was a human warrior, so when I got a guild invite in Eastern Kingdoms I happily joined up. A bit later I rolled a draenei paladin, which was all the way over in Kalimdor. Believing that I had to be in a different guild because I was on a different continent, I didn't ask for a guild invite and ended up joining a separate guild while trying to find the bank in Exodar.

The irony? They're both great guilds, and though I soon realized the continental distinction was meaningless, I'm still a proud member of both.

The Queue: Hell, it's about time {WoW}

Jul 27th 2010 1:19PM Yep, it's the Haunted Memento. I keep mine in my DK's bag, because it just seems like the sort of thing a death knight would want to have hanging around him.

Breakfast Topic: I just bought a $25 imaginary horse {WoW}

Apr 19th 2010 10:20AM But the starpony DOES give an in-game advantage. Because it scales up with your riding level, it means you don't have to buy a new mount when you gain a new level. That's in-game gold you're not spending on a mount, leaving you free to, say, buy better gear that gives you a competitive advantage, particularly in PVP realms.

The monthly fee is enough. The in-game economy is enough. I like the starpony, it would be nice to have one, but I ain't shelling out an extra real-life dime for any of this nonsense.

Shifting Perspectives: Tanks and the barrier to entry {WoW}

Mar 3rd 2010 8:49PM This is where a good, patient guild should come in. The first time I tried the Dungeon Finder, I was an Arms warrior who didn't even have a shield in inventory--I was doing PVE, working my way through the levels, and figured I'd give that new Dungeon Finder a shot. Since I was a warrior, well, surely that meant I should list myself as a tank, right?

Thirty seconds and one wipe later, I bailed fast before having to hear from the others in the group something I already knew: I absolutely sucked as a tank. (My deep, deep apologies to whoever they were.)

My guild came to the rescue. They even bought me some gear, then took me into an instance where, with their advice and encouragement, I was able to get in some practice and radically improve my tanking skills. Buying Dual Talent allows me to get set up as Protection, too, even while I finish the job of leveling.

And yet I still haven't worked up the courage to go back into the Dungeon Finder yet...
