WoW Rookie: Top 5 tricks for grouping in Vashj'ir {WoW}

Dec 9th 2010 4:13PM I think these are all great tips.

I started in Vashj'ir as well (alone) and it was stressful enough trying to do the quests quickly to keep up with friends in others zones. In the end I had to leave as they were out pacing me dramatically.

This zone is a BEAUTIFUL and FUN, however if you are looking to push to 85 fast or just do not like questing in general, this probably is not for you.

I do suggest that everyone take 20 mins and get the Seahorse Mount as it is awesome!

The WoW Insider Show Episode 172: Cataclysm {WoW}

Dec 9th 2010 3:52PM Hi Guys!

Love the show. It seems to get better all the time, and especially listening to it live as the information is generally more breaking or relevent. I will be tuning in tomorrow for sure.

I am not sure why more people do not comment. I know some of my guild mates on Spirestone listen and I have been talking about the show and others say they will be tuning in as well. I hope this goes live and becomes something you guys can make a living at because I think its great. Helps me through the work day lol

Matthew Rossi - I notice when you talk the other hosts of the show tend to let you have the floor as you seem to have a lot of definitive answers for the listeners questions and overall seem to be respected by them.

I find that because of this when you are talking at length you don't seem to have a smooth transition to give the floor back to them. Your comments generally just end with no emphasis on "ok guys jump in!" So there is constantly a 1-2 second strange silence while they realize you are done.

Don't get me wrong, from one avid Warrior player to another, I enjoy your input very much.

P.S. I have been playing Warriors since Vanilla and have multiples myself and my friends and guildies always ask me why I have more than 1. I cannot ever seem to explain it beyond "I like them best".

Cheers and keep up the good shows!

Ghostcrawler explains tanking with a vengeance {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2010 10:07AM @Wellsee
"older content - like heroics once we outgear them." I think what you might be missing here is that Mobs die so fast once you outgear the 5 mans that you truly only need to hold the mob for 10 seconds or less anyway. As a Warrior Tank I get initial aggro and focus my threat on the melee mobs in the group (since they generally kill DPSers once they grab aggro), if I lose aggro on something long before its going to die then i will just stun the mobs and by the end of the stun they are generally dead. I think it is a very far stretch to think that tanking older content will be hard in any fashion.

If you are having trouble with initial aggro then your raid buddies are most likely popping all cool downs right off the bat and your rogue or hunter buddies are not starting the fight off with tricks or misdirect as they should be. Or you have some of the highest DPS friends around. If you are talking about 5 man threat on the other hand then the DPS need to wait until you at least get some kind of an attack on the group of mobs, as prox aggro obviously is not going to hold aggro. I am of the sound mind that if at the start of a fight if I see an attack fly past me while I am trying to get to the mobs that person can tank the guy he hits. At that point it is between them and the healer.

This mechanic is fantastic and even if they need to tweak it here and there as we go this mechanic will balance threat issues in the game.

For those concerned about how it will be over powered in PVP you need to think about how it works. The tank must be taking consistant damage for it to stack and not fall off, and I know that when I am taking damage on my tank I die long before Vengeance stacks up to make a difference, if I am not getting heals. If the tank is getting enough Vengeance in PVP to start doing enough damage to cause you problems then you need to go kill the healer allowing this to happen.

Go GC!

Patch 4.0.3a: What's in The Shattering, what's not {WoW}

Nov 23rd 2010 10:46AM So is the wolf mount from the end of ToGc going to gone as well? or is the tribute run still available even if you no longer get an achievment for it?

Sure would be nice if Blizz let us know this kind of stuff.

Patch 4.0.3a: What's in The Shattering, what's not {WoW}

Nov 23rd 2010 9:29AM Is there a comprehensive list of all Raid Achv changes? Uld/ICC/Naxx/ToGc and so on? Also the titles mounts and such they are doing away with that are rewards for these.

Encrypted Text: Theorycrafting basics for the studious rogue {WoW}

Nov 17th 2010 10:01AM finally found it on the new forums!

Still surprised nothing was said about it.

Encrypted Text: Theorycrafting basics for the studious rogue {WoW}

Nov 17th 2010 9:40AM Did I miss any information on the Gunship not working in ICC for many people? From what i know no one from Blizz is talking about it.

Breakfast Topic: What threads from the old WoW forums will you miss? {WoW}

Nov 17th 2010 9:18AM I am surprised to not see an article aboutt he Gunship bug last night. Does anyone know if it is fixed?

Or are the new forums more important than the game working?
