Mists of Pandaria Beta: Watch the Horde intro to Pandaria {WoW}

Warchief Nazgrim...Has a nice ring to it, don't you think? ;)

Breakfast Topic: Spill your 5-man PUG stories here {WoW}

Jan 26th 2012 2:48PM Here's my story, from last week
Decided to run a normal dungeon on my resto shaman alt to grab some JP (can't remember why anymore). Got into a regular Halls of Reflection with a DK tank, a melee druid dps, a mage and a hunter.
We pull the first group, the druid pulls off the tank, and promptly starts calling the DK a bad tank. DK offers to switch roles with the druid, and they do so. We get to the first boss, down him no prob.
Then we get to the Hall of Lights (where the 4 mini bosses are) and things go to shite.
DK runs straight while the rest of the group turns left. Dies. I rez him.
Then the now-druid tank goes "Hey! I wanna try something! You guys all stay there!" and attempts to pull BOTH the fire mini boss AND the earth mini boss at the same time.
DK dies again, as he followed the tank to the second MB. I'm stuck trying to keep everyone alive, and running away from the AOE fire.
DK leaves at this point, and we go to the next two mini-bosses.
As we're fighting the air boss, I'm noticing he's dying very slowly. Reason? The hunter is doing extremely low dps, and the mage is AT THE OTHER BOSS. I ask him what he's doing and his reply is, "Waiting for you guys."
I yell at him to get to the group. "Fine"
Kill the last two, and iirc, we get a warrior tank at this point. So, druid goes back to kitty and we kill the main boss extemely quickly. (I had noticed that both the tank and the mage were the same as me--way overgeared for a regular dungeon.)
So then we get upstairs with the four bosses. Everyone but the warrior tank goes to Rahj. Warrior politely asks if we can do all four bosses. Hunter says "Sure", I say "I don't care" and I run to the warrior, who's at a different boss.
Druid pulls Rahj's trash. The warrior tank and I just stand at the other boss and watch them die.
When the three of them run back, the druid asks why we're all seperated. I tell him the tank asked to do all the bosses.
Druid's reply? "Well, I'm a tank too, and I'm going to do this."
My reply: "Well, have fun doing it without a healer."
Mage pipes up and points out how he's groupe with the druid and they'll blow thru the boss really easy. Warrior comments how he really want's to see that happen.
So the druid pulls Rahj, (with the tank and myself still at a different boss). I had been psting the tank (who confided in me that he didn't trust the dps to not leave after killing Rahj), and told him he was better off to just leave group. Then, not knowing if Rahj's AOE would also affect me, I dropped group.

Looking back, I don't know if I was in the right or not, but IMO, if you queue as dps, you don't get to pull a prima donna and tell the group what they're going to be doing. Hell, even if he had queued as tank, it still wouldn't have given him the right to not accomodate the requests of the other players.

The aesthetic consequences of new character models {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2012 6:38PM I don't know if anyone noticed this when I did, but I recall logging in after installing Cataclysm and suddenly noting how the details on the NPC's had changed. Did anyone else notice this?

Breakfast Topic: What's your naming methodology? {WoW}

Jan 9th 2012 8:41AM I just use the dictionary. XD

The very first toon I rolled was a gnome. I called her Quadragessima. lol
My second toon, who is now my main, is a undead named Fontanelle. It's kinda creepy when you stop to think about it. XD
My alts I've either used the random name generator, or just used the first word that popped into my head.

Ghostcrawler explains patch 4.3 balance changes {WoW}

...*cough*

Jaina Proudmoore working book title: Tides of War {WoW}

Aug 10th 2011 10:31PM Will probably get downrated, but I really can't stand Golden's books. Trudged through "Thrall" and her other WoW novels and seriously, it's like reading something that a 15 year old wrote and posted on ff.net. She can't figure out "Show, don't tell", she can't do descriptions worth crap and the chars she writes about have no personality whatsoever. The fact that Blizzard keeps using her as their main writer makes me die inside.

We had a story writing contest not so long ago; why aren't we using those winners? Sarah Pine's two pieces on Hellscream and Lor'themar Theron were *amazing*, IMO.

Encrypted Text: Fresh patch 4.0.6 PTR notes for rogues {WoW}

Jan 23rd 2011 11:15AM "Instead of the first Sap lasting for 10 seconds and the followup lasting for 5 seconds, it will be 8 and 4 seconds respectively."

Sap does not last 10 seconds. It lasts 45 seconds. And with the glyph, it lasts for 2.33 minutes. If it is getting reduced to 8 seconds, that is certainly NOT a small nerf.

Cataclysm Beta: Thrall receives a new model {WoW}
