Hi, Doris from HR, I write about dragons on the internet {WoW}

Feb 24th 2012 10:01PM I dont include WoW in my resumé, when I started to work in the IT industry I always kept my video gaming habits as a secret, unless someone started a conversation about it, but then didnt threw too much to the conversation.

Fast forward 5 years, and now I find myself having conversations about gaming during interviews and day to day professional meetings. I'm a game developer now and the pendulum went to the other side, at this company, the people that doesn't play video games is watched as some kind of weird person.

I'm not saying that the extremes of the spectrum are either good or bad, but honestly I feel more confortable now in this company where I see many "equals" around, than previous jobs.

In defense of intellect plate {WoW}

Feb 6th 2012 7:48AM Well another option that was brought up in the forums this past week, was make priests also use plate. Spirit in cloth gear is exclusive to priests, of course we mages and warlocks may use it and reforge the item (im watching at you ryolith and your stupid drops of cloth helms -.-)

If any of those solutions, the holy pallies using mail caster gear is the one I like the most. The loot adapted to the raid composition sounds nice and would solve the problem we have in our raids now, only protector tokens drop, and 6 out of 10 people are in the Vanquisher group :P but I dont see that happening, right now according to blues, the game defines the enemies' loot upon spawning it.

Blue Posts and Other WoW News: Blizzard considering changing the "Skyrim" Ultraxion trash, answers on raid nerfs {WoW}

Jan 19th 2012 7:49AM @SamLowry:

I've seen that happen, bad attendance for a couple of weeks, we decided to pug people, and one of the pugs went to speak with the npc (was it varyann I can't recall?) after removing the buff he said but I want to run ToC...

Does WoW need more raid lockout alternatives? {WoW}

Jan 9th 2012 5:26PM @Homeschool the only problem I see with that, is that classes are not equal, and not everyone can solo content. Of course you have classes that apparently are meant to solo old content (read pallys or dks) but others are not so luckly wich would drive even more people to complain about their class not being able to complete certain objectives. Take as example achievements, all achievements are doable by all classes but at the same time, there're exactly none that asks you to solo something.

A workaround for that problem would be to implement these rewards as account wide.

Breakfast Topic: What was your most memorable noob moment? {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2011 8:23AM I have a couple, before WoW I used to play Lineage2. The difference between the two, is that L2 punishes you severly for dieing (a death to an npc at high level costs you 4% of your current XP, yes you can de-level) Also drops fall to the ground and anyone can loot them, imagine killing a boss and anyone that was not in your raid, can go pick the item.

So naturally when I started to play whenever a mob or boss died I ran to it and looted. In solo mode that wasn't a problem, but when there was people around, I started to feel paranoid about "people iz gonna steal my lootz!".

In the same sense, there was this anger about being ganked i used to think: "F!"#$!"$%!" did I lost that XP?"

These two things speak about being a noob, not only at the game, but not adapting to a very different gaming experience.

The missed opportunity of 20-man raiding {WoW}

Dec 1st 2011 10:35PM well they already placed their head in the lion's mouth when they announced that 10's and 25's would drop the same loot. So I dont know if being afraid of the possible reaction players may take (wich to be honest will always be opposite to them) is the reason to not do it.

In my case I support the idea of 15-man raids and dropping the 25 AND 10 man, but that has to do with the fact that I play in a low pop server in the less populated faction. As an officer of a raiding (nor hardcore, nor casual) guild, I always had the problem of having 14 or 15 people online on raid nights, wich meant having to sit out people constantly switching them from week to week so everyone can enjoy the raiding.

Know Your Lore: The war begins {WoW}

Nov 30th 2011 5:20PM "The one-sided war declared by the Horde while the Alliance is looking elsewhere can no longer be maintained. The narrative demands blood, and blood it must have, from both factions."

sorry but no. after getting our ass kicked, not by the horde but by lack of lore development, it's not alliance blood what must be spilled.

Bashiok explains why the MoP talent calculator is out already {WoW}

Nov 23rd 2011 6:29PM im glad i'm not the only one to feel this way.

At least in this version they swap the lvl90 talents with the previous tier, because it was kind of depresing seeing all the other pure dps get new toys but us got 3 abilities we already had, (slow, blastwave and dragonbreath) Now I also feel sorry for hunters with their 3 options at 90 related to traps, specially frost ones wich are the CC traps not DPS ones :/

Bashiok explains why the MoP talent calculator is out already {WoW}

Nov 23rd 2011 6:23PM "You can't toss anything ice-based unless you are Frost (except Cone of Cold and Frost Nova) as a Mage."

may want to recheck, deep freeze is now trainable by all specs, and the convinient ability shatter (x3 damage to frozen targets) is now available to all specs, and the first tier of the new talents all provide a direct or indirect way to freeze targets.

This is what's keeping me of jumping and protesting, there's no way this can go live as it is, it would be really op. People already cries about frost mages, can you imagine them when they get deep freezed (stun), and then hitted by 4 stacks of arcane blast?

Patch 4.3 PTR: Official (updated) patch notes {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2011 6:43PM I know there are a gazillion of xxxlolegolasxxx by either adding more X or tweaking the letters, but still there is people from other places in the world that use those letters, not exactly to copy names. You could say but then go to your realms (latin, brazillian or oceanic realms) without getting into an argument that usually ends up wrong, I would like to point out that some people is not really interested in playing those realms, either for a social/competitive/whatever reason.
