Raid Rx: How to be the world's worst healer {WoW}

Jan 27th 2012 7:28PM While I was leveling my hunter, I was grouped with a healer who was doing a fantastic job, up until one trash pull where he was late getting started. The tank went down, but the DPSers cleaned things up without too much trouble.

The healer was quite apologetic, and explained that he had been taking a hit from his bong at the moment of the pull. Other than that, I had no issues with his performance, and there were no further deaths the rest of the dungeon.

Breakfast Topic: Spill your 5-man PUG stories here {WoW}

Jan 26th 2012 9:21AM Ah, I had one just the other day.

Hour of twilight. Players are me (fire mage), rogue, and three guildies from another server. The tank is somewhat competent. The healer has no idea what he's doing. The hunter does 3k DPS, when he participates at all. None of the guildies have any gems or enchants. The rogue and I are doing high 20s on DPS.

We get through the first two bosses, slowly but successfully, but then Benedictus... We wiped 7 times. I decided that I was going to stick with it until they gave up or kicked me, purely out of stubbornness. I give the healer some tips, but he rudely rebuffs me, claiming to have healed that dungeon "thousands of times." Getting the Shear debuff was a death sentence, because the healer could neither cleanse or heal through it. I would Ice Block it off if I could. The healer went OOM within 15 seconds of the pull, so I was on my own for health. I'd save Mirror Image to use as a threat dump after the three guildies died (which happened every pull) and the rogue and I had to finish the job.

Yes, I'm still annoyed two weeks later.

The Queue: Happy father's day, Ragnaros {WoW}

Jun 19th 2011 12:17PM Right up until I hit the character creation screen I was planning on creating a worgen paladin to play in Cata. Oops.

The Queue: What a wreck {WoW}

Mar 8th 2011 11:16AM Roll need on Chaos orbs if you can. If it's equipment, roll need if you plan to equip it. If it's crafting supplies, roll need if you plan to craft with it. Do not roll need if you just like the way they look in your bag. Simple.

Arcane Brilliance: Which mage spec should you be raiding with? {WoW}

Feb 19th 2011 9:04PM There's nothing quite like going an entire pull without a Hot Streak proc, and then the next pull getting three in a row right at the start and pulling aggro from the tank. This must be the same thing that keeps people playing the scratch-off lottery tickets.

Come to think of it, I do have a Fortune Card gambling problem, too...

Patch 4.0.6 PTR patch notes updates for Jan. 28 {WoW}

Jan 30th 2011 12:24AM Oh hey, they realized that Fire mages are smart enough to use FFB as their nuke and fixed its mana cost too. Yay!

Arcane Brilliance: News and notes for mages from PTR patch 4.0.6 {WoW}

Jan 16th 2011 12:03AM No mana reduction for FFB? What fire mage isn't using it for their main nuke instead of Fireball? The extra DoT (you have it glyphed, right?) is exactly what helps fire. There's essentially no reason to use Fireball instead, since both can trigger Hot Streak/Impact.

12 Days of Winter Veil Giveaway Day 12: SteelSeries prize pack {WoW}
