Oct 2nd 2011 1:33PM another alternative is to enable sound in background - that's what I do. so when I hear the musical warning that the queue is ready, I tab back into game.
Oct 2nd 2011 1:31PM Do you think the Raid Finder is Blizz's final answer to address the lock-outs issue, or is there still a chance we see 10- and 25- be on separate lock-outs in the future?
Aug 21st 2011 6:25PM Wow, so much hate over so small a question...
let me clarify why I think it may be interesting to get it with a longer duration: we virtually always have it on. I would assume that the original intent with the very short duration, was that it would be used as a temporary buff, to be used in situations when a particular player required more healing. Thing is, since then mechanics and gameplay style have evolved and as a result, we instead tend to always have it on, and more often than not on the tank. it's a bit like an insurance policy, ensuring that even if we need to heal someone else, the tank won't die - particularly practical in 5-man when you're the only healer.
If it was still 30 or 60 secs, the baseline would be to not have Beacon on, and it would get casted only in particular situations. With a 6 min duration, instead we always have it on. So my point was, if we'll have it on at all times anyways, why not make it a longer cd?
I hardly see how answers like "well others have shorter stuff", "it used to be shorter" or "it's not an armor so your comparison is invalid" are any constructive in that context. if you have valid reasons for the buff to remain 6 min instead of going to 30, 60 or no expiration, then speak up.
Aug 21st 2011 12:09PM Q4Q: was there ever discussions about making Beacon of Light longer than 6 minutes? Besides the annoyance of having to recast it and potentially forgetting to it it wears off during battle, I hardly see what fun there is in such a small cooldown. I would have thought that when the decision was made to remove the cd's from other buffs like Fel Armor, a change would have occured on Beacon as well... Thoughts?

Aug 19th 2011 7:47PM Did anyone actually confirm that 4.3 was going to be the last Cata patch? If memory serves, in BC, Illidan was introduced before patch 2.4... so who's to say we're not getting another patch after Deathwing, to kill whatever Old God is behind everything (e.g. great scheme described in Thrall: Twilight of the Aspects)?
Jul 9th 2011 7:41AM Living Embers, Eternal embers... please help - which are BOP and which are BOE?
Jun 28th 2011 6:27PM Q for Q... at which moment are addons loaded? e.g. if I update an addon while at the login screen, will it take it or do I need to restart the game completely?
Jun 19th 2011 1:17PM why is the game no longer asking for my authenticator?
Jun 15th 2011 7:52PM Why do we need to march, you ask?
here are a few examples:
- there are still many work places where if you're known to be gay, you get insulted or become victim of segregation
- there are still many young gays who get bullied at school
- there are still many gay people (i know a few personnaly) who get beaten up, robbed, etc. just for being who they are
- there is still a lot of psychological violence against gays in game
how many times do you hear "oh, that's so gay" in a negative way in vent when raiding? in party chat when pugging?
we march to show the world we are proud to stand up to all this opposition. that we are not lesser beings, that we have a right to love and marry, that we deserve respect and are as strong members of society as anyone else.
the day this is all behind us, then we can stop marching.
