Dec 28th 2010 4:31PM Lots of good changes here.
Holy priest Chakra is a cool idea, it just has a bad, clunky mechanic. In needs a rework, not a duration buff.
Same with Wild Mushroom for Druids. It's another weird mechanic that needs a rework.
The ret pally changes sound good.
The only really bad thing in there seems to be for mages & warriors.
Dec 27th 2010 4:53PM ....and the Troll women don't blink.
Dec 27th 2010 4:52PM The Draenei male voice accents are terribly annoying.
That was my dealbreaker.
On the other hand, the male Goblins voices are done quite well and crack me up.
Dec 22nd 2010 4:01PM This was a pretty good article. Some of the stuff I've noticed: Women tanking and/or melee dps is pretty rare. I've only known 2 women who were consistent main tanks in the past 5 years. The healer thing surprised me (even though my main is a healer) & the dungeon achievements surprised me.
I really wasn't surprised by the gender bending. I know one female player who plays a male troll because she hates the female troll faces. The hug thing made sense, but I bet male players /bow more often.
I'm betting that players with max level fishing are older males too.
Dec 22nd 2010 3:47PM The male blood elves just look like husky women, so my only female toons are blood elves.

Whoever told you that about Renew was wrong. It may have been true in Wrath (when efficiency didn't matter), but it's completely wrong in Cata.
Chakra Serenity: Causes direct heals to refresh the duration of your Renew on the target.
Dec 17th 2010 5:55PM Disc isn't really designed around group healing in Cata. It'll be a solid tank healer when raiding, but it's lousy for heroics. It's possible for heroics, but you have to rely on PW:S and Strength of Soul to knock your weakened soul debuffs down. The problem is you need a ton of Haste to make it work.
You're still in Wrath healing mindset. You can't spam PoH anymore. You can't really spam anything anymore. Make friends with your Renew button.
And as much as it makes me vomit in my mouth.......Lightwell.
Dec 13th 2010 7:44PM Blizzard is clearly sexist... otherwise the female Dwarves would have beards, and the male Blood Elves would have breasts.
Dec 6th 2010 12:43PM Both events were a PITA if you were leveling, but at least with the zombie invasion, you had a fighting chance to use a flight-master, turn in your quests, or see your class trainer in SW or Org. Leveling a Shaman with TB & Org being phased every other hour was annoying. So was trying to do the daily cooking quests for the Bounty Harvest.
On the bright side, I made a ton of gold selling ports on my mage.
The Zombie Invasion was fun & different, at least for a while. The Elemental Invasion quest line was good, but the city attacks weren't fun.
Nov 17th 2010 3:50PM I know :( I had my fingers crossed for a little mini-giraffe ala the DirecTv "Opulence" commercial.
