Mists of Pandaria Beta: New archaeology items {WoW}

Mar 27th 2012 7:06PM I've come close, a couple times, to smashing my monitor on my way to (not) getting the Vial of Sands recipe via Archaeology. Now, granted, that's probably one of the worst, multi-layered, RNG grinds in the game, but when I see people recommending that players "put on a movie" while they do it, I have to wonder: would Blizzard consider the profession a success if it required that players find other sorts of entertainment to help them get through it?

The Queue: Rule of Two {WoW}

Feb 20th 2012 2:21PM @icepyro: I actually have the following macro'ed into my Entangling Roots/Hibernate/Cyclone spells:

/clearfocus
/focus
/cast XXXXXX

And I still have the problem. I update Power Auras every time the game patches, and yet it persists. I've mostly come to deal with it by just not using Power Auras, which brings me great sadness.

The Queue: Rule of Two {WoW}

Feb 20th 2012 1:45PM I also am plagued by this problem. Power Auras was one of my very favorite (and only) add-ons - I find it invaluable as a feral druid in PvP to monitor Predator's Swiftness, CD on Tiger's Fury, etc. - but it seems to disable my ability to /focus targets. Even worse, it causes the built in raid-frames to bug when I'm in big encounters (like LFR DS25), and as a healer this can be a pretty big issue. I find it a great challenge to be super-awesome without Power Auras, but so it goes.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Single-Minded Fury redux {WoW}

Feb 11th 2012 4:46PM No! ...Kaled. Oh, wait, Yes! ...Kaled.

Ready Check: Cleaning up issues with Raid Finder {WoW}

Nov 19th 2011 2:35AM True story. I used the integrated voice chat for quite a while when I was questing with a friend of mine, but as soon as we joined a party via the Dungeon Finder tool, the chat dropped entirely; we couldn't even talk to just each other anymore. I do not believe that it works at all, cross-server, and it may have limitations within a server if you use the Dungeon Finder tool to port your group to the dungeon (regardless of whether you've formed the 5-man group entirely yourself).

This is all a bit disappointing. For an MMO with as large a user-based as WoW has, one would think that Blizzard would have a functional, if not also more robust, built-in chat voice chat system.

The Queue: BlizzCon was really fun {WoW}

Oct 28th 2011 9:32PM Question: I didn't start playing WoW until the beginning of the Wrath expansion. Prior to that, was Dalaran actually - physically - in the Alterac Mountains, where the crater currently is? I understand that it was never accessible as a city you could walk into, but did it literally sit there, at least in a visual sense, under that protective dome?

BlizzCon 2011: Opening Ceremony Liveblog {WoW}

Oct 21st 2011 2:02PM New talent system, a.k.a., every class will have either a tank or healing spec. It'd be a smart move, if disruptive to some players' current spec trees.

The Queue: I don't want to set the world on fire {WoW}

Oct 18th 2011 2:44PM WTF folder! Ha. That folder always makes me laugh. Because I'm immature.

Shifting Perspectives: Player thoughts on bears and trees {WoW}

Sep 20th 2011 8:30PM I think your friend's experience might be underplayed by many as an issue. It was my own, too. I stopped playing feral for a long time because, well, honestly? I couldn't see my gear. With Cata, as resto, I could, and I work hard for that gear. I want to see it, and not just when I'm waltzing around Stormwind. I know its an issue of vanity, but what is WoW if not (at some level) a testament to vanity? We even collectively call them "vanity" pets and "vanity" mounts. Transmogrification itself is an altar to the innate vanity that exists in the game. Seeing my gear, mounts, and other collectibles is certainly an issue for me. I really love the druid more than any class, but I once again am feeling the pangs of jealousy when I see protection warriors dancing around a raid or dungeon in their fancy gear while I continue to look like I did at level 20. It just makes me less eager to play as a bear, even though I enjoy the tanking role more than I do the healing one.
