The Light and How to Swing It: Major AoE healing changes in the Mists beta {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 6:42AM Only one proc? you trying to make pallies boring?

I love my proctastic ret spec, its probably the dps spec with the highest skillcap in teh game right now. Its dififcult to master and interesting to play.
But no, lets go back to wrath tedium as adhd whiners cant hack it.

Ghostcrawler explains spec-specific quest rewards in MoP {WoW}

Mar 30th 2012 7:34AM Mop: Rise of the identi-toon.
Same specs
Same "talents"
Same gear
Embrace your conformity of how Bliz thinks your character should be.

As more and more choice (not matter how illusionary) is taken out, and I am increasingly handed a character made by Bliz, I just cease to care about it.

And does anyone else think it sounds like "active tanking" is going to be a damp squib? If I can tank hihg level instances in dps gear...then whats the point?

Oh well, I had hopes for MoP, but the more i see the less hope I have. Roll on GW:2.

Mists of Pandaria beta opt-in and official FAQ {WoW}

Mar 21st 2012 8:45AM I avoid betas.

Either they are complete bugfests and ruin the experience for me, or they are so like the finished product I am bored of it before it comes out.

Betas are like the PTR...."yey new content I can 'test' out".......Conent is released on live servers ...."finished it in a week, there is nothign to do".....

Avoid betas, unless you really really like proper testing, and can live with the reality of burnout quickly.
I HATE massive betas, they are just early access, not proper tests. Players should have to submit proper reports on bugs, performance and such. betas should also be specific areas of the game.
I'd much rather Bliz did a proper, targeted and rigrous beta test, and for once realse content that is not a bugfest. the quality of recent releases has been drastically sub par.

Officers' Quarters: Rock bottom {WoW}

Mar 12th 2012 9:45AM Is your server active, or dying? Because if its declining, if not already dead, don't start a new guild. You wont get anywhere. The existing guilds will be fighting tooth and claw over any decent players, and they have something you don't. Guild levels. Yep, you cant compete without them, that extra mount speed, extra profession bonus, bonus mats, pets, mounts, experience, JP, Honor, mass ress, travel spell.....all of that is what you, as a lowly level 1 guild has to compete with nowadays. At a time of poor raiding content, and neverbeforeseen competition for wow in the MMO market, its doubtful whether a new guild has much chance of sucess on any server, let alone one not in tip top conditon.

My main server is down to 3 raiding guilds on my faction, and ours is the longest running, most sucessful and can barely scrap raids together nowadays, and has to bring in pugs from our friends list to make raids sometimes. There is literally no one to recruit. All decent players have left the server or the game, and the applicants, those very rare ones we get, are of such poor quality its just not worth it. (un-gemmed, unenchanted, no class knowledge, and with a massively entitled attitude).

Be careful of counting on MOP to create an upsurge. Yes it will, but those people are likely to be gone in 2-3months too. And there are some great games comming out soon. ToR had an impact yes, but not too much. GW2, TSW and others are likely to make ToR look insignificant in terms on impact on WoW.

Just my opinion. I'm enjoying WoW right now, but then again, I've spent time in Rift and ToR and others...there is viable competition out there, and when GW2 comes out, I dont know if I'll stick it with WoW, its mainly the people that keep me here, and they are gradually leaving one by one.

I dont want to go all negative, but you really need to sit down and think about starting a guild in the current wow climate, you will have to work exceptionally hard to make it work. And the chances of success are low. If you can hack that reality, then best of luck to you. But I'd suggest it may be better to join a guild you like for now, esp as you've only recently come back, and see if you really want to make that kind of committment.

Breakfast Topic: Is it the perfect time to start playing WoW again? {WoW}

Mar 9th 2012 8:49AM cata questing is top notch? really? Because the general consensus seams to be that it was awful, linear, and scripted, hindered by over done phasing and too much was "mandatory" such as 3/4 of deepholm to get to the rep faction opened...

Recommend wow if you want, but pleas do it for real reasons. As for casual...not really. LFR was a great idea, and works well with some small issues you can easily ignore, but its 40mins of content once a week, thats not casual, casual is content you can dip into now and them, say play an hour a day on. LFR is just a one shot experience once a week.

Go play RIFT for a casual MMO, whether you like the game or not, the play model is much more user oriented than wow is, or is ever likely to be.

(yes, I mentioned RIFT.....flame on...)

Dave Kosak talks quest design in Cataclysm {WoW}

Feb 28th 2012 1:27PM new aspect of magic? whut?
I did not get the legendaries, I do not read wow books as I play enough wow as it is. So I have no clue what you are talking about.

Which is pretty lame.

Breakfast Topic: Which race has the best starting zone? {WoW}

Feb 27th 2012 8:09AM My favorite? Azuremyst-Bloodmyst. By far.

The storey is great, the zone is thematically cohesize, the quests are laid out in a logical and grouped manner and are interesting. The exodar is the best city in the game.

Breakfast Topic: Is Cataclysm tanking getting easier and easier? {WoW}

Feb 25th 2012 4:30PM I used to tank, Cata has bored the hell out of me, so I've stopped. In fact all the long term tanks I know have ditched it due to boredom. A lot have left (I took a break) and others have gone to dps or healing.

Tank is just not engaging anymore, its just dps but with lower numbers and auto threat.

BOOOOOOORRRRRRIIIIIIINNNNNNGGGGGG!

Heart of the Aspects mount now available for $25 {WoW}

Feb 15th 2012 8:57AM Why do you think "hardcore" raiders are entitled to the "best looking" mounts? why not casual raiders? why not pvpers? why not people who do so many daily quests? Or who just enjoy messing round in Org/SW?

Why should "your" type of game play be the only type to be rewarded? Sense of entitlement much? Anyone can buy it, if you dont like it, then theres a simple solution, dont buy it.

You may be able to spend 12 hours a week grinding raids or whatever, some of us have jobs but pay our subs too, so want pretty things. To me £17 is nothing, I can easily afford it, so I'll happily pay it. Sorry you cant afford it, but though luck.

Shifting Perspectives: Are druid abilities getting a trim in Mists of Pandaria? {WoW}

Feb 10th 2012 8:55PM I have ALL druid abilities keybound for both my specs.

I use a G13 and a razer naga, with action bars that page by form.

Its what I love about druids, with mop, mine will be abandoned, and probably wow aswell, you can only dumb down so far before its boring as hell.
