Oct 29th 2011 2:25PM I'm not sure if it's just my love for Tauren or what, but I loved the new starting zone.
It perfectly suits the Tauren with it's slower pace and broad, rolling landscape. I know for most WoW players, "slower pace" is worse no matter what the reason is, but for me, it fits perfectly for Tauren. I see how people could dislike that aspect of it though.
Also, the death of Greatmother Hawkwind (coupled with Cairne's death) really got me emotionally invested in the zone.
When I finally got the quest to kill the Quilboar chieftan, I happily did it several more times than was needed :)
Aug 2nd 2011 11:27AM Ask a Shaman question:
What is the generally accepted use of Unleash Elements and the Focused Insight talent? Should I be using UE and shocking the boss on cooldown as part of my standard rotation to buff every heal? Or are they not meant to be used on cooldown?
I've played both ways, but haven't healed in raids enough to know which is better.

How possible would it be for Blizzard to allow the use of apostrophes in character names? I always figured it was some big coding issue, but I've always wanted a troll character to have a name like Rak'ijin or something that looks like a real lore characters' name.
Jul 25th 2010 4:06PM I've never wanted to comment badly enough that it made me want to create an account and actually comment on an article. However, my main has always been a shaman and almost always has been elemental specced. I get my WoW reader's fix here at wow.com daily and until now, there haven't been a lot of discussions or articles concerning my favorite class and spec.
With that said, I'm so incredibly excited to see that wow.com has enlisted your help, Binks! I've been craving elemental shaman articles for a while now and I've really been impressed with the several articles you've written so far.
Even though this is just a journalism website about a game, sometimes an article or a new writer just makes me want to dance. Welcome aboard!
