Oct 27th 2011 11:24PM Gnosis is my favorite new cast bar. It's less modular in some ways but SOOO much more so in others. To top it all off, it's the only cast bar I could find that would allow me to change the direction of the fill. Good stuff, love what you do!
Oct 10th 2011 9:04AM Well you said it before I could. Nothing beat the way a Troll crouches down and holds his bow sideways. They do it like it's an extension of their arm. Like they were born with the damn thing. Obviously, I'm a bow fan, and I get terribly upset when I have to use a gun.
Oct 8th 2011 3:21PM I really hope that prediction for the release is either December or even later. I have a wedding and honeymoon in November AND Skyrim is coming out, so I'll have to stop playing WoW for a while so I can gorge myself on that.
Oct 6th 2011 3:01PM I actually agree with the MM nerf and allowing us to take advantage of the 20% buff. As you said, hunter do seem to be doing OK in raids right now, but it also seems like they're over complicating the buff by taking out the ranged part, when they could just make some much needed adjustments.
Sep 30th 2011 3:12PM So I have a question for you Matt, seeing as you have review all three Razer peripherals in question, or any commenters that happen to have knowledge of the subject. I already own a Razer Naga and a Razer Anansi. I love the Naga and couldn't live without it now, and I really enjoy having the Anasi to go with it but, it seems my muscle memory just won't break out of hitting the actual shift, ctrl, and alt keys (although i've remapped my alt key to where my caps lock key is due to having used the Merc Stealth for a long time). I want to be able to use my thumb keys, but my instincts are kind of set in stone it seems.
So here's the question, as I already own the Anansi, would it be worthwhile to try out the Nostromo? It seems like it would have a ton of versatility, and I love key binds. I never click anything on my screen anymore thanks to the Naga. I also really like the idea behind the thumb pad being used for modifiers instead because I avidly play PS3 as well and that seems like it would fit in well with my current play style. Anyway, please let me know, any advice would be great.
Jan 14th 2011 8:45PM Edit: Leading the Pack. Not back.
Jan 14th 2011 8:44PM Wow, great article. I'm a Survival Hunter and I've enjoyed leading the back for the past few weeks, however, I was saying the whole time that the spec needed to be nerfed A LITTLE. Obviously, we all feared that our spec would be, as GC puts it "To the Ground". But Blizzard is doing an excellent job with spec balance at the moment. The second round of nerfs, was really scary, and then the thrid was completely understandable.
Point is, I know that I can play my class well. I try to be the best at everything I do, and if I can ride in Top 3 in almost every 10man encounter I do, I would rather know the it is because I know how to optimize my gear and keep up my "rotation" while not standing in fire. Not just because I'm lucky enough to be playing an Overpowered Spec.
Jan 4th 2011 8:19PM No one else mentioned this, but I use the Add-On created by Razer to coincide with the Naga. I'm sure it's a lot like Domino's, at least that what I'm told, but the extra customization with the Naga is really healpful IMO. Setting it up is extremely easy, and I like to have 4 - 3x3 blocks, 3 of them with shift, ctrl, or alt modifiers. I don't really like reaching my thumb down to the bottom 2 buttons so I make due with those bars, and I bound some Opie rings to the bottom three that I'm turning out to use a lot more than I had intended. Anyway, check it out!
Sep 28th 2010 12:43AM I actually did mention that it needed to be done, just not at the same time. Honestly, he doesn't seem like the kind of person I would want in my guild, and especially not as an officer; however, causing more drama to prove a point never yields positive results. You can try to make him feel ganged up on, or you can come out of it with a good raider. Maybe even a better friendship after it's all done. And of course officers ARE going to discuss members and their performance in the guild. The approach I suggested simply leads to, hopefully, better results than a /gquit.
Sep 27th 2010 4:18PM That's all great advice. The only thing that I would want to expand on concerns enlisting the other officer to help you talk to the offender. It's great to get him to talk to him as well, but it might be best if, when he does, he does it on his own, and doesn't mention to the offender that you requested him too. If you were to both talk to him at the same time, he might feel like he's being ganged up on and get angry, then just ignore everything you're saying. If your other officer tells him that you sent him to talk to the offender, then he might feel like the two of you are talking about him behind his back and also react negatively. The best way to handle the situation is to try to be as positive and constructive as possible, while also enforcing the rules. Avoid negativity in the guild and between friends and, hopefully, you'll win ;) Good luck with guild leadership, it'll never be easy.
