Servants of Allistarj no longer good for weapon skilling on Beta {WoW}

Aug 8th 2008 7:09PM I'm not sure on this, but what about WF for shammies. Do those extra attacks help level skill?

How to reveal blocked caller ID info: a video guide to risky behavior {Engadget}

Jul 22nd 2008 12:48AM Whats even better is when you have Asterisk save their callerid information, so that every time a telemarketer calls you, you just forward the telemarketer to a random number on your list of callerids. Don't forget to put them into a conference room instead and monitor (Asterisk's recording application) the call, so you can listen to the sweet vengence later. :-)

Are priests a hybrid healing class? {WoW}

Oct 2nd 2007 5:43PM @3 you forgot holy shock for paladins...which is considered to be a very 'hybrid' spell and also seal/judgement of light.

(the following isn't EXACTLY related to this topic, but i think its close enough...)

In general, I think we are forgetting about utility in this argument...I consider there really to be four roles, these are: healing/dps/tank/support...

A support class could be define as a class that can fill in most roles needed in varying situations and its benefit is usually factored by the number of members in the group/raid. These generally tend to be the 'true' hybrid classes. (This should be no new news to experienced players)

Consider what one paladin (with generally any build) brings to the raid versus what one mage brings to the raid...A paladin can buff accordingly increasing whatever specific class is needed...mages can only buff intellect. A paladin can off-tank mobs that are attacking the healer, a mage can't. Both the mage and paladin (can) have CC (while the mage is far superior). Both the mage and paladin can DPS. The paladin can heal if needed, but the mage can bandage? Simply put, the paladin's possible contributions are exponential to the number of people in the party/raid. Shamans, Druid and Disc Priests (arguably) have similar aspects.

Because this discussion is about Priests, I'm going to focus on them. Simply put, Disc Priests have 'utility' (buffs), healing, dps(-ish, depends on secondary talent tree), and 'CC' (psychic scream and UD shackle). But I don't consider it enough to be considered a hybrid class. They can't tank (don't anyone dare say they can with PW:Shield), they can't reliably CC, and their buffs' benefits are static (as opposed to the paladin's mult. blessings, shamans mult. totems, and druid's all-around MotW), not to mention that the disc spec has very little dps advantages...

I'm tired of writing for right now and i think everyone gets my point.

What class can't you play? {WoW}

Encrypted Text: How to lrn2raid {WoW}

Aug 8th 2007 1:50PM this might be the place to ask, why does no one do a combat-mace/hemo build? it would seem that with two maces both having +haste rating (easily obtained pre-kara with Blackout and BS mace) or even two slow maces with BS mace, SnD, trinkets and blade flurry and enough attack power that hemo would do more dmg than SS. Anyone have links to theorycraft or just insight as to why this doesn't happen?

MTV True Life: A WoW players casting call {WoW}

Jul 24th 2007 3:41PM @6:
I think this is for an Western European show, and the "Engrish" gold-farmers speak might not suffice ;-)

(kk, before the flames come, i know that not all gf-ers are oriental/asian/chinese/whatever, but its a funny stereotype for this situation)

MTV True Life: A WoW players casting call {WoW}

Jul 24th 2007 3:37PM heh, i would love to see a mother of five raiding gruul's lair that is inbetween the ages of 16-28...

Also at @3 and @5:
While the other demographic stories may be more appealing to you, Mtv probably doesn't consider them to be, or atleast doesn't think it would be for their intended audience. So I, personally, give them slack for narrowing the age range. Mtv's "real life" tv shows are focused on filming situations that the viewers can relate to, but then adding their associations, so that the viewers will associate their desired life with Mtv (or Mtv sponsers). Its hard to get the teenage demographic to relate to a Vietnam Vet. If it were someone like "60 minutes" or something, I would give them just as much slack if they focused on the 40+ demographic.

Taking bets on how long this will last... {WoW}
