Apr 21st 2011 2:34PM I expected to hate him. Heck it sucks to get killed like that buy you play on a PVP realm. don't like it, transfer or reroll elsewhere. It looks like a lot of fun.

Shifting Perspectives: Tanks, bribes, and player behavior {WoW}

Apr 13th 2011 1:40PM Allison,

I think this kind of hits the nail on the head. I only recently got into tanking for Cata but I've been playing warlock DPS for a long time.

I remember the days when your reputation meant everything. If someone ninja'd from a 5 man they were lambasted in cities and on the forums. Heck I got into a few guilds based on my reputation or being someone who devotes themselves to the guild and their advancement.

Every day I do my random and maybe an extra if a friend needs a tank. I find it frustrating that I can complete one run flawlessly and without complaint but my next run I will be harassed because ONE pull didn't go right or someone decides I'm not going fast enough and pulls a second group.

I enjoy tanking but I've found my desire to do more than my one daily dropping drastically.

Breakfast Topic: How has reading WoW Insider changed your game experience? {WoW}

Mar 1st 2011 9:29AM I've played off and on since vanilla as well. Being an avid console player I knew about sites like gameFAQs and participated there. I figured there was something for WoW and started searching. Most were cumbersome sites. WoWinsider was a nice blog/newstory type site that didn't just give the information it usually explained it for those of use who didn't "get" it.

I played a warlock almost exclusively. Sure I leveled some alts (never really past 60) but I've been a lock since beta. Last month I decided to roll a tank to accompany my BF for leveling. I choose warrior to 58 and then switched to DK. I'd never had a lot of experience with Melee let along the DK's. Sure, I knew the basics but I just didn't get some things.

I found wowinsider a super helpful resource. Most of my searches would bring up very old information or it would only be for one spec, and usually not what I was looking for. I found wowinsider really helpful to "get my feet wet". I finally understood why there seems to be different information about blood tank and why frost is the way to go. It gave me a base so I can goto other sites and understand whats going on.
