The Queue: Rule of Two {WoW}

Feb 20th 2012 8:58PM Does Blizzard release data about server populations and Horde/Alliance ratios? There are several websites out there, but they all seem to have conflicting or outdated information. I'd like to see a real-time (or at least calculated at restarts) compilation of data straight from the source.

Ol' Grumpy and the crushing disappointment of roles {WoW}

Feb 16th 2012 12:41PM Guild Wars 2 is addressing this very issue; every class has the inherent abilities to serve every role. You're however restricted to only a handful of abilities at a time, so its up to you to "spec" into a role. WoW could adopt this model if it proves successful with their competition, they even have in a way with splitting the Feral Druid talents. I'd love to see Destro Locks and Fire Mages learning how to heal with their fire like Alexstrazza, and their talents being split to give them a healer option.

The Light and How to Swing It: In defense of Inquisition {WoW}

Feb 16th 2012 12:28PM I feel like Inq. Could be changed to either have a chance to refresh HP (like Eternal Glory does for WoG in Holy), or make it simply a random proc from hitting Crusader Strike. Would still end up being close to100% uptime, and free up GCD and HP for more exciting stuff.

The Light and How to Swing It: New tools for evaluating holy paladins {WoW}

Feb 12th 2012 7:35PM I am brand new to Cata healing, after taking my Holy Pally out of retirment where he's been since Wrath. I'm not sure if its just a gear issue or low spirit, but I find myself struggling even in HoT heroics. We wiped on an Echo of Tyrande; try as I might, I could not keep people out of the red. Wasn't sure wether to spam Holy Radiance, mash Holy Light just to keep people alive, or alternate Flash and Divine light to top them off one at a time. When you say HoTs should be a breeze, I wonder what I'm doing wrong

Addons that you wish were still around {WoW}

Feb 8th 2012 3:06PM Necrosis LDC. It was the very first addon I used with my baby Warlock. Fortexorcist does a lot of the same stuff nowadays, but I still miss that "Shadowtrance!"

The Queue: DMF {WoW}

Jan 28th 2012 3:23PM Have they given us any indication where Pandaria will be on the world map? I'm betting it will be just South of the Maelstrom. There's a tiny little island there, which I imagine would be the Alliance and Horde's foothold into the new world. It could be the new starting zone for level 85 players, or could be the contested PvP zone (e.g. Tol Barad).

The Queue: Sad Mat is sad {WoW}

Jan 25th 2012 12:42PM Here's a Q for the Q: My main is a Death Knight, so I didn't get to enjoy the redesigned 1-60 areas on him. Where do I start? I know I can turn on Low Level Quests, but those don't trigger the Warchief's Board, so I have to hunt out all the breadcrumb quests. Which is the first one out of Orgrimmar, and without the Board, will I hit any hiccups along the way?

Breakfast Topic: What addons can you not live without? {WoW}

Jul 19th 2011 1:37PM On Warlock:
ForteXorcist - I'd never be able to track all my DoT's on multple targets without it.
Power Auras - Lots of great reminders here.

On Paladin (lot longer list):
Quartz - The only way I can reliably interrupt.
Tidy Plates - I've used the standard for awhile, haven't really tried Threat Plates
Moveable Holy Power - I need my holy power in the center of the screen.
Healium/Heal Bot - My action bars are devoted to tanking, so I use these to heal myself out of combat when doing dailies/solo questing. Was HB for the longest time, but I like the easy setup of Healium.

Patch 4.2 hotfixes for July 6 {WoW}

Jul 7th 2011 2:33AM They need to fix the bug where punting the children of Tortolla or getting into the tree to punt bear cubs unsummons a Warlock's demon.

The Queue: Where the Sidewalk Ends {WoW}

Feb 15th 2011 6:01PM This is a (possibly) dumb question I've always had but never asked: do different servers have different dungeon queue timers? I'm currently on a high pop. server with 45 min DPS queues, and always wondered how it is for low pop. servers.
