Spiritual Guidance: A shadow priest's first look into the Raid Finder {WoW}

Nov 17th 2011 12:00AM You are more likely to have at least one semi-competent leader among 25 people than among 10.

Spiritual Guidance: Shadow priest Pandaren and the new MoP talent tree {WoW}

Oct 27th 2011 12:19AM All of that will simply be built in - Formerly classes were balanced around having those talents, now they won't be balanced around them. Your spells will have tweaked values to reflect this change, but remember it's not that they took away your +stats; they took everyone's +stats away, and with a brand new expansion they will be rebalancing you anyway. You'll be balanced without needing those stats. Likely they will simply be built into your character or spells, so that at level 85 you'll be exactly as powerful as you are now (give or take a little, of course) without needing to have those talents to get there.

The Lawbringer: Mailbag 4.0 {WoW}

Jul 22nd 2011 6:19PM Er... No. Supply will increase massively, demand will increase drastically. The averages of supply and demand will remain the averages; in fact that's exactly what you'd be doing by merging all of those markets. The only major difference is that there would be no outlier markets. Microeconomics gets weird when you get close to 0 supply or demand, because slight fluctuations are a huge percentage of the supply or demand; some realms, generally low-pop realms, have certain markets like that. Merging all region AH would eliminate those cases. So you would have something close to perfect competition. Prices would be very stable, with the only major fluctuations caused by actual changes to the game itself. Prices would not go down from current averages except in rare cases due to the elimination of niche markets on various realms. But those would likely be countered by realms where the average goes up. Overall volume traded would go up, which may have been what the author was thinking of, because realms with an overabundance of supply would meet those with an overabundance of demand, but average price would not change. Personally I think it's a bad idea because it eliminates a lot of the AH game.

Scattered Shots: Dancing for DPS {WoW}

Feb 4th 2011 5:03PM I'm not exactly certain of the numbers here, but its quite easy to make a macro which pops you into Hawk whenever you cast any instants or into Fox when you cast Steady/Cobra. There is some dps loss to be sure, but I'm fairly certain that that dps loss would be outweighed by the benefit of being in fox if you ever have to move, and you'll always have Hawk up when you cast an instant. Basically the macros would be:

#showtooltip spell_name
/cast !Aspect of the Hawk
/cast spell_name

for everything other than steady and cobra and then:

#showtoolip spell_name
/cast !Aspect of the Fox
/cast spell_name

for Steady Shot and Cobra Shot. This is very similar to what I use on my leveling hunter so that I never have to manually get into Hawk when I've been running around in Cheetah or what have you, although I don't have Fox yet. This is much simpler and faster than manually clicking in and out of Hawk and Fox, and while technically there is a dps loss I imagine that its more than made up by the facts that a) it demands no attention from you allowing you to focus on other aspects of the fight, which may very well improve your dps, and b) It takes no time from you, so you're never wasting any time switching aspects while you could be casting

Guild experience changes in patch 4.0.6 {WoW}

Jan 13th 2011 6:31PM My only issue with the focus on guilds is that they aren't actually focusing on guilds, they're focusing on large guilds, and large guilds that have been around since Cata's launch. It is nearly impossible to recruit as a new guild. The first question you're asked by quite nearly everyone is "What glvl are you?" when you reply anything more than a level or two below the highest level possible at the time you get ignored.

I realize that's kinda off-topic, just saw this about guilds and wanted to vent some frustration.

The Queue: Dead Space Tueue {WoW}

Dec 24th 2010 8:11PM If you can convince your tank to be helpful, there is. Tell him to always focus the current kill target. Bind the following macro to your F key:

/target [@targetfocus, harm] targetfocus; targettarget

That will target his focus (if you can attack it), or his target if you can't. alternately you can focus the tank and use the following macro:

/target [@focusfocus, harm] focusfocus; [@targetfocus, harm] targetfocus; targettarget

just getting your tank to mark the kill order would help too

Actually Roman Catholicism does accept openly gay priests. I know of one, indirectly. Catholicism does not condemn people who have homosexual feelings, only homosexual actions. And since Catholic priests don't marry anyway, the clergy is an excellent place for a homosexual Catholic. I'm not Catholic btw, just felt I should say something.

As an aside, most Christians are intolerant, as are most atheists, muslims, and pretty much most people generally. Christians seem to get targeted a lot more, probably because America has been a Christian nation on the surface. People complain about saying "Merry Christmas" in the name of tolerance, but that is itself intolerant.

Bottom Line: People are intolerant.
