Sep 24th 2010 5:18PM Any ideas when the specific category links will stop directing to "wow.com" and to the newer domain? (eg. Class - Death Knight link directs to "http://wow.com/category/Death-Knight/")

WoW Rookie: These darn kids today need to learn ... {WoW}

Sep 10th 2010 1:20AM ...not to kick healers from their random heroic for behind decked out in ilvl 170-200 greens & blues. Some of us want to train our ability to use triage properly.

Breakfast Topic: Does gender influence class choice? {WoW}

Aug 27th 2010 8:48AM I began my (now) main a little over a year ago. PĆ¼rfection, the restoration druid. I chose druid initially for the shapeshifting (primarily Cat Form). However, I was quickly drawn to restoration opposed to feral. I just prefer healing to other roles. I find it suits my personality well as I'm very passive and tend to help opposed to hurt. I do have a Balance off-spec; however, it's merely there due to the fact that my guild needs it on occasion. I'm a male.

Yup...my class choices are pretty much the same as the women column barring a few changes (Druid, Priest, Shaman, Paladin, Mage).

Guess I'm the odd one out :]

Breakfast Topic: Tank anxiety {WoW}

Aug 3rd 2010 6:16PM 1. Yes, but once you hit said defense cap the stat as a whole drops in superiority. You never see ICC geared tanks running around with full defense enchants and gems. And as such, it's not all about defense.

2. I believe you are not understanding what the writer was saying. She was saying that not only is a tank's duty to "be ready to step up and take charge of the group by assigning duties" but "also be willing to listen to the suggestions of those who might know a different strategy"

3. Yes, it's the tank's duty to hold aggro. But I'm a firm believer that the dps can regulate their own threat and no go crazy with it while doing sufficient dps. (I'll admit to aoeing before the tank finishes picking the mobs up. I'll also admit that it was my fault I pulled aggro off of the tank.) Classes have threat redirection, threat reducing, threat suppressing, and threat dropping skills for a purpose.

Aug 1st 2010 10:50PM Has anyone thought about the kiting uses for Leap of Faith?

A prime example of where this would be surreal would be the Ozumat encounter in Throne of the Tides where one of the adds in the encounter has an aura that will quickly diminish a tank's health as their numbers accumulate. If a tank is stuck in a sticky situation where they will catch up with him then the priest could cast Leap of Faith on the tank and possibly save his life.

Also, it should be noted that Shadow priests have access to Leap of Faith as well, despite the fact that it causes them to drop shadowform. Saving a member's life and possibly preventing a wipe is worth more then the 2 gcds of lost dps.

Aug 1st 2010 7:58PM The tooltip as of now doesn't mention one way or the other, so I'm assuming you can use it out of combat as well as in combat.
