Sep 28th 2011 1:48AM Holy crap, they fixed holy priest raid cooldowns! Can't wait!
Sep 27th 2011 3:37PM Well played. I LOL'd.

Nope: Krasus had a huuuuge part in the Demon Soul novel, but it was indeed Alexstraza's essence (she's the aspect) that went in.
Sep 15th 2011 1:01PM The goggles remind me of Dr. Horrible. I like it!
Sep 14th 2011 1:34PM Knaak is a great writer, but sometimes he just kills me with the way he builds the plots. He is always ducking back and forth drastically between different sets of characters and sometimes even different times it would seem. Sometimes it takes me a page or two to catch back up to where those characters were and I feel like I need to go back and re-read them to fully get what he's saying.
Perhaps my reading level isn't where it should be at my mid-thirties, but I find that I get more pleasure from Golden. But I'll give this one another shot. Maybe if it's highly focused on just the Alliance side the point-of-view swaps won't be so distracting.
Sep 13th 2011 4:35PM Great article Dawn, and great replies in the comments. Tons of info here: I had no idea you guys were length-restricted in the actual article, and I'm really glad you're willing to follow through with...well, everyone...in the comments.
I admittedly cringed that my comment from a while back was harsh enough to draw a "hate holy priests" jab -- hope one day you'll forgive me for that one.
Sep 12th 2011 11:22AM While this is a logical conclusion to make, the reality is that Robin is spot on. The younger kids simply have a hard time typing in complete sentences. I don't think this is specifically an age/education thing, but rather the "million-texts-a-day" culture invading the more formally written word.
Teens/kids are simply more impacted by today's electronic shorthand, and I truly hope that as these kids are maturing, that they will snap out of it. Unfortunately, as 24-hr texting for kids is still somewhat of a new think, I think the end result remains to be seen.
PS -- I'm not anti-texting either, I shoot out 50 or so a day. But on the iphone it's pretty easy to maintain coherency and not fall victim to the grammar-be-damned shorthand.
Sep 1st 2011 4:11PM Q for the Q:
With the tank shortage, why doesn't Blizz implement some kind of talent on melee classes that's a parallel to the spirt->hit conversion talents on other hybid classes? Doesn't seem fair to tanks that my holy priest can basically have a raid-ready DPS +17% hit set, but if I want to take my tank DK into a dungeon as DPS or vice versa, I need two completely different gear sets to be effective. If there were a blood/protection talent that converted say, hit to avoidance or something, we might have more people out there attempting to tank with really good gear as opposed to focusing solely on their dps sets.
Aug 23rd 2011 6:18PM Now THERE'S the insight I was after and that I knew you had. That post alone deserves it's own Insider entry. Thank you again Dawn.
