Crowd control basics by class {WoW}

Jan 5th 2012 1:18AM As far as I can tell, the random ones all rely on a proc or condition being met. The controller, on the other hand, may be triggered at will.


For example, a frost mage's shattered barrier is listed as random since it happens based on taking damage and cannot be directly triggered. Frost nova, by contrast, is controlled, since it can be used at will anytime it's off cooldown.

Drama Mamas: How to help an abused guildie {WoW}

Oct 31st 2011 11:44AM They're both right.

"and if she tries to take him off of that, she says "I just wouldn't feel safe." "

"Wouldn't feel safe" is when it crosses over into cop time. The friend probably shouldn't contact authorities on their own initiative, but should definitely encourage her friend to do so.

She should be saving every single communication between the two of them, and if her location allows one party consent for recording, that includes the phone or face to face conversations.

The Queue: This dog {WoW}

Apr 10th 2011 2:24PM It isn't just the level 80 gems. All alch transmutes share the same lockout. So if you got a CD from even vanilla transmutes it would still lock you out of 85 as well.

Cataclysm hotfixes for Dec. 14 {WoW}

Dec 14th 2010 11:57PM And yet, still far more of an archeology mount than an alchemy one. I'm glad they changed something, but I don't think this was the right way to fix this.

Breakfast Topic: Who will be the ultimate boss encounter of WoW? {WoW}

Dec 14th 2010 10:59AM "I'm betting there's some Ultimate Old God out in the Twisting Nether."

This wouldn't surprise me at all. The Algalon fight text seems to imply that Old God corruption is a relatively routine thing and not at all unique to Azeroth. If he's any indication, the Titans are off trying to hold back a more universal Old God menace.

Given the trouble that the ones on Azeroth have given us, I imagine that rooting out the source of an infestation spanning many worlds would be a heck of an ultimate boss.

Breakfast Topic: What won't you miss about Wrath? {WoW}

Sep 25th 2010 9:12AM This is more of an ICC thing than a Wrath one, but I won't miss hardmode unlocks that are tougher than most of the fights. Since the normal LK fight was tougher than at least half of the hard mode fights it unlocked.

In principle, the heroic/normal idea is a good one. There are plenty of people out there that aren't up to hard mode progression for one reason or another, but still want to raid. Ideally, the two different tracks should allow them to experience the content and their own form of progression, while giving more experienced raiders their own track with higher difficulty and better rewards.

The problem with ICC, however, was that a huge chunk of the content was easy by the time they got their LK kill and unlocked the hm fights in the first place.

Know Your Lore: The Prophet Velen, the light and the darkness {WoW}

Sep 15th 2010 3:02PM First of all, thanks for the interesting article.

But I've been wondering, where do the Titans and Old Gods fit in here. I can't recall any real mention of conflict between the Titans and Burning Legion after Sargeras left the Titans, and likewise for the Old Gods and the Naruu.

Algalon's words suggest that this is far from the only planet to experience an Old God infestation, so I've always imagined that the Titans were off dealing with them somewhere.

So there seem to be two great interplanetary conflicts going on mostly independently of one another. Is there any real mention of them overlapping at all (besides Azeroth, of course).
