Breakfast Topic: Be honest -- did you make it over the Wailing Caverns jump? {WoW}

Feb 20th 2012 12:33PM er... we were in Black Fathom Deeps last night. is the WC jump still there?

i made it back in the day, for the record. but it was pure luck.

Breakfast Topic: Be honest -- did you make it over the Wailing Caverns jump? {WoW}

Feb 20th 2012 12:31PM timely article....

my wife rage quit last night after failing the jump like 12 times in a row :( and i failed it 3 times myself (after playing for 4 years)

message to blizz: this isn't super mario brothers. no one wants to jump around, we just want to kill internet dragons.

Blue Posts: Clarifications on new MoP talent trees {WoW}

Feb 16th 2012 9:15AM as a paladin, i'm still waiting 45 levels before i get anything even remotely interesting... i still think i'm just not going to pick any at all in protest if the trees still suck so badly.

The Light and How to Swing It: New tools for evaluating holy paladins {WoW}

Feb 13th 2012 2:45AM i find it kinda funny....

i play all 3 roles, on many different toons. every class and almost every spec in fact, most at max level and geared. i study them all on EJ and Main-tankadin and such. and while i really need to know every last detail of my dps class, i can't make myself care about the finer details for healing and tanking. i even consider my tank my true main! i really do enjoy these articles, and yet i've never wanted look at my logs.

no offense to those that do. really. and i'm not really a raider, obviously, though my dps sits very well in any group i've ever raided with. but tanking? i handle 5-mans with ease, and consider myself a good tank. yet i rarely use my cooldowns at all. healing? i really do enjoy myself, but really can't get into the fine print.

its just me and my play-style i guess. maybe i didn't need to write all this, but i kinda got a laugh at myself as i just realized how lopsided my "studying" is. i love playing every part of this game, yet for some reason i don't feel driven to take healing to the next level.

maybe if i were raiding, and the challenge were higher? a DPS can always try to outdo the other 2 guys in their group. but a tank and healer... well, if you win, you win. there isn't really too many other things to say about it.

thank you to those of you that do go all out, as i really do enjoy reading about what you do, and how you squeeze every last bit of power out of your classes. i'm fascinated by your stories. maybe not my cup of tea, but thank you for offering me some!

The Light and How to Swing It: 2 tanking wishes for Mists {WoW}

Feb 11th 2012 5:37PM not sure i agree entirely.

i do want them to get rid of vengence and threat mods, so that i can actually think about threat as i tank. that was the idea. i am the protector, and i need to hold aggro. staying alive helps this.

i don't think my job should be all about "trying to stay alive". thats just lame. and thats the healer's job! haha well, ok, its both our job. i should help when i can. but threat should be the tank's focus.

but heres the thing: i HATE having to use the right cooldown at the just the right time. it seems like a weird meta-game thing. i want to attack, and dodge, and get out of the poopoo, sure. but honestly, i don't bother using any power with a cooldown longer than 1-2 minutes. if its not ready when i want it, whevever i want it, i put it out of my mind. i don't ever want to reach into my toolbox and find a cooldown in my way. so i'll just have to make due with my other tools.

and i have learned to fix alot of things with my hammer!

ps. likewise, unless they really change up the MOP talents, i'm just not going to pick any. thats how unexciting they are, and i'm sure i'll be fine. i'm used to that kind of thing.

Do mages really need 3 competitive PvE specs? {WoW}

Feb 5th 2012 8:52PM as others have said:

i love my frost spec. love it. and so my raid has to suffer because blizz keeps my spec's potential down.

does that seem right to you? i'd rather not play than respec. (or more likely go play my lvl 30 alt). sure, the raid leader could punt me, but i don't think thats what blizz wants either.

Patch 4.3.2 released today, launch your clients early [Updated patch notes] {WoW}

Jan 31st 2012 8:06PM what does "Mass Dispel should again prefer dispelling targets that have magic effects that can be dispelled." mean?

i thought mass dispel already targeted everyone in range. or are we just discussing what makes Mass Dispel happy?

How to make 146g in Maelstrom Crystals in 5 minutes {WoW}

Jan 20th 2012 7:00PM sorry if that comes off sounding so harsh, i'm generally a big fan of these types of articles. but i do believe this one's over the line.

How to make 146g in Maelstrom Crystals in 5 minutes {WoW}

Jan 20th 2012 6:58PM its so profitable because its an exploit... which should lead to a ban. i'm all for making money, but this is pretty obvious.

and you know this should not work, otherwise you'd just go to the Guardians of Hyjal vendor for your epics and save 3/4 of the money. but no, you have to go to just the right one, otherwise it doesn't work.

don't talk everyone else into doing it, so you can say "look everyone else is doing it too!"

this should have been posted in the bugs thread to be fixed
