Drama Mamas: Loot drama redux {WoW}

Nov 21st 2011 12:00PM Agree and disagree here.
Agreed that it can be tough to break into a new guild as tank.

Disagree about finding a new guild however, as it strikes me this tank is already in their perfect guild. What the GM & Partner did was just greedy, however this is compounded by this tank rolling on tier shoulders when they already have i378 shoulders with the other player on i359.
Sure, have guild rules to provide a framework in which to distribute loot, but check all the other comments here about "i pass for you, no please you take them". This is painfully not in evidence here, and so I'm afraid I can summon little sympathy for yet another case of purplitis.
Remember - what goes around comes around, so pass on the tier item for your guild friend as the token will drop again real soon.

Cataclysm launches in Europe, servers currently down [Updated] {WoW}

Dec 6th 2010 7:03PM Yep, quelle surprise :P

We get as far as "Connected" before getting booted out. WoW-eu website is offline because "It's a busy day for Battle.net!
Due to high volume of traffic, we've taken our World of Warcraft and Starcraft II Community sites offline to allow as many users as possible to claim keys, upgrade accounts and manage subscriptions.

As soon as website load is back to normal we'll open these sites again.

Thank you for your patience!"

So no game, no support. Thank god the cricket's on :D

Totem Talk: A restoration shaman's Cataclysm checklist {WoW}

Nov 30th 2010 7:22PM I'm levelling a resto shaman atm, currently lvl 75, so will hit 80 round about release date. I havent yet seen any info on whether freshly dinged lvl 80 healers (specifically resto shamans) will be able to jump straight into cata dungeons?

So, forget all your ilvl 264 gear for a sec, how will a healer in blue wotlk dungeon gear fair?

Totem Talk: Restoration PvP in patch 4.0.1 {WoW}

Oct 27th 2010 3:56AM I'm a bit confused here - Wowhead reports this http://www.wowhead.com/spell=5730 which states the amount the shield can absorb is (up to) 9451 damage, which supports Joe's OP, yet you are saying only 1085?

I'm levelling a resto shaman at present, so have no personal experience of this at level 80, so what is the definitive answer? Perhaps 9451 is the level 85 spell?

Thanks.

Breakfast Topic: Oops, I've been acting like an elitist jerk {WoW}

Oct 25th 2010 9:15AM *edit to the above.

Perhaps I should have put a profanity warning on the post *blush*

Global cooldown rework in Cataclysm {WoW}

Oct 8th 2010 6:25PM I have to admit bafflement I'm afraid. We're talking about the GCD, that lasts a mighty one second right?

And to quote from above "if you send a command that's received half a second before the server is ready to execute your next ability, you can't change it." I can't remember the last time I changed my mind about anything in half a second, let alone changing a WoW command.

I think I'm getting old....no I'm not ! (damn, that took 1.5 seconds).

Is this really going to have much of an impact on general slackers such as myself while questing and generally mucking about, or is it primarily for the pvp gods and max/min raiders to worry about? And a slider to change things? O_o eek, techno fear starting lol.

Guild size cap and the WoW Insider reader guild {WoW}

Oct 6th 2010 8:21PM Is there (could there be?) a sister-European guild as well?

Either way, it's a pain for Robin and all involved - tough decisions to be made.
