Totem Talk: The early days of restoration shaman {WoW}

Aug 23rd 2011 5:07PM I'd like to see a talent or totem to reduce cast times on just healing spells with a minute duration. Perhaps as a prerequisite to Nature's Swiftness.

Breakfast Topic: What's the next big change? {WoW}

Aug 23rd 2011 3:31PM @imm110 -- Perhaps a no gear PVP tier would help. You spawn in all white (no stats and same dmg as everyone else) gear that is class specific. Then it would be about skill. Can you reach the caster before he melts you? Can you see the stealthed enemy to melt them before they stun you? I would PVP in that scenario.

Drama Mamas: How to rein in a rules lawyer {WoW}

Aug 9th 2011 11:39AM I too see the description of K to match almost perfectly to the symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome. If that is the case then there is hope to help him (using he for simplicity) behave and perform better but it will not be an easy road. Please understand that K may or may not have Asperger's but the similarities are too great to ignore.

Structure, rules, consistency and plain speaking are the core tools of dealing with an Aspie. I'm still finding out the hard way how to keep an Aspie (my wife) happy and productive but those core rules have never failed me. The guild rules are a great start but they must be in plain language that a 3rd grader can follow. Anything more complex may lead to more rules lawyering from K. Keep it simple so there isn't room for anyone to over think or misinterpret the rules.

It will eventually boil down to being firm but fair. If the rules are in writing and you are consistently following them and he still has trouble then talk directly and plainly to him about it. No hinting or beating around the bush. Be polite and as honest as possible.

DO NOT TRY TO REASON WITH AN ASPIE WHILE THEY ARE IN A TANTRUM, it will only exacerbate the issue AND the tantrum. Nip it in the bud firmly and fairly. This may require ejecting him from the party/raid temporarily.

Give him a private channel for chatter and ranting. Ensure that at least one other person is in the channel with him. This will allow him to feel that he is communicating things that have him excited or annoyed without overwhelming guild chat. Make sure that if you use voice comm that you have firm rules about chatter, a channel just for that or no chatter during X.

Win a pony from {WoW}

Apr 15th 2010 8:44PM When are they going to put a bag that accesses your bank up in the Bliz store? No?

Ok, I'll settle for an account wide mount that grows with your skill then. Now if only they offered a cash token to have all riding training for free... Still no? Darnit.
