Apr 13th 2011 10:30PM My kids got me hooked during vanilla. They started playing. Then they started twisting my arm to try it. I rolled a NE priest on my daughter's account. It only took a few days to *need* my own account. And now I'm more hooked than they are! I do get points for being one of the coolest moms around though :-).
Nov 8th 2010 2:19PM WRT subbing, you need to factor in the new "flexible" raid lockouts. Before the new lockouts I was basically second string for our 25 progression group. Now being subbed in means abandoning my 10 for the week. (Both groups run heroic modes.) There may be more flexibility for raid leaders to sub people in early on while everything is on normal mode. But in the long run I think it will be harder for 25's because people won't be willing to save their lockout all week just in case the 25 needs them. Having a regular, dedicated, reliable group is going to be even more important than ever.
Nov 4th 2010 4:08PM One complaint I have about the spell alert system is that it alerts me to things that are still on cooldown. I end up wasting time either trying to cast something I can't or double checking the icon cooldown. Anyone know if they're planning to fix this?
Jul 19th 2010 6:52PM I love articles like this and wish more raid and guild leaders would take them to heart. Right now I give kudos to leaders who bother to give feedback at all. My guild recently recruited someone from off server for my raid spot (tree). The problem? I was given no feedback, no heads-up that there might be an issue with my performance, nothing. I was told there were concerns only after the new guy arrived and I called them on it. Considering I'd been part of the progression team all the way up through 11/12 HM I think I deserved some kind of feedback if not an opportunity to improve. How about an article on getting raid leaders to keep the rest of us in the loop without becoming a pest or a QQ'er?
