Sunday Morning Funnies: ShamanWow {WoW}

Feb 22nd 2009 11:55PM Pretty much the only funny thing B^Uckley has ever been involved in was that time he sent an underage girl pictures of his cock.

So much for Chaos and other Warlock stories in build 9014 {WoW}

Oct 3rd 2008 12:32AM "Oh, and Everlasting Affliction affects Haunt instead of Shadow Bolt, which is excellent because it relaxes Affliction's already complex rotation."

That's sarcasm, right? It has to be, or some other sort of funny joke. Have you actually tried out the new Affliction in this beta build? Making a 15s DoT renewed by a spell on a 10s CD, especially in a time where very few locks are hitcapped at 80, does not relax anything. In fact, it complicates things significantly. It was much, much more simple to have Corr renewed by the SB spam filler - Corr never dropped. Just last night I lost Corr twice on Patchwerk 25. That's not relaxed.

Official Wrath talent calculators on EU site {WoW}

Jul 21st 2008 8:02PM The warlock 51pt Affliction talent is significantly different between the blizzard site and wowhead/mmo-champ.

wowhead/mmochamp: "...and increasing all damage done by your damage-over-time effects on the target by 15% for 12 sec..." Thus, haunt increases all other DOTs damage.

Blizzard: "...Damage is increased 5% for each of your damage-over-time effects on the target..." Thus, the damage Haunt does is increased by other DOTs.

The wowhead version is awesome. The Blizzard version is mediocre at best.

US registration for Wrath beta now open {WoW}

Jul 3rd 2008 3:07PM You're is short for "You are:"

"You're the best."

Your is a possessive:

"Your eyes are like deep buckets of molasses.".

Caption This! {WoW}

Jun 17th 2008 10:24AM "What business does a man, an elf, and an undead have in the Shattrath City?"

Reusing jars for wet bulk foods {Slashfood}

Jun 17th 2008 9:39AM To be clear, they bill the jars as "sanitized", which is technically quite different from sterilized. I'd also be concerned about the closures on commercial jars - many are not designed to take a second round of sterilization, and may warp in such a way as to prevent sealing.

Not that it's not a fantastic idea, but it would probably be best and most safely achieved with a stock of glass mason jars and a deposit/return program for the jars.

Blizzcast episode 3: Dungeons and raids edition {WoW}

Jun 5th 2008 6:35PM Wow... I don't think I've ever seen "We don't know yet, we're still working on it" reiterated so many different ways in one document. Assuming this was recorded relatively recently, I doubt we'll see TBC this year at all - it sounds like NOTHING is done, and like dungeons and raids are barely even begun.

Study secretly tracked 100,000 cellphone users' locations {Engadget}

Jun 5th 2008 12:01AM What sort of rubber-stamp ethics committee let that through?

Oh, Northwestern. Color me completely unsurprised.

A refreshing change in spells {WoW}

Jun 3rd 2008 4:03PM That's the primary concern amongst the Warlock community right now - if they can't make it reset duration without resetting the tick timer, the talent is absolutely worthless. As of right now, I'm told (third hand, but reliably) that the talent is completely non-functional on the beta realm, so no-one knows how it will work at all as yet.

Blizzard: Sharing Wrath data is "extremely offensive and inappropriate" {WoW}

May 23rd 2008 3:23PM I don't think I've ever seen anyone be self-righteous about being an PR mouthpiece before. Heavens forfend you actually had to do work on your site/podcast, instead of parroting press releases.

I also think perhaps you might want to consult with council before talking about what Blizzard can and cannot do with their intellectual property - a news organization has an ironclad fair use defense in reporting on any and all of this leaked material. "News reporting" is in the actual statute. If you propose to argue that this information isn't important enough to be news, I would refer you to previous posts in which you have crowed loudly about how many pageviews you have.
