Blood Sport: Iron Sharpens Iron, part III {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2011 2:47AM Organized PvP and random PvP are completely different beasts. Generally speaking, if you like one you'll like the other. Don't rule it out though. Definitely try it out!

Patch 4.2 class balance explained {WoW}

Jun 17th 2011 11:04AM @ Othgan - that's because we are a very refined bunch here at WI while those guys are...well it's best if its left unsaid

Ask the Devs scrapped, new Q&A coming soon {WoW}

Jun 16th 2011 7:18PM Instead of just crying, let us give forth idea.

Have the questions emailed rather than posted on the forum. The devs/moderators/whomever will sift through the questions, eliminate all questions that are the same and combine ones that are similar. For example, "Will the Priest spell Divine Hymn ever have its power increased to effectively top off players with low health in most situations?" "Will Divine Hymn ever have its cooldown time reduced?" and "Will Divine Hymn ever be reworked to hit more players or the entire raid?" can be reworded to include a basic overhaul.

After they're proofed, make a poll available for the community. This will cut down on the pages of repetative/similar questions. This will (hopefully) alleviate the problem of wanting to only view the first 10 questions and voting using only those choices. Any question that can be answered by browsing the patch notes should not be included in the poll like, "Will there be a second boss added to BH in 4.2?" Questions that just don't belong such as "Which is better, Horde or Alliance?" should not be included in the poll.

Finally, the devs should just out-right answer the selected questions. As someone pointed out, we are not entitled to the inner workings of the devs. On the other hand, if they're going to give us access via questions, they should oblige. If I'm running a business and run a promotion for buy one pizza get a medium pepperoni pizza free, but give my customers the free pizza with only 2 pepperonies, that's bad for business. I technically fulfilled my side of the bargain but I'm giving them a less-than-stellar product. Skirting, for example, the Divine Hymn question above by saying, "We have thought about it and may do something," is giving us a free pizza with 2 pepperonies. If you have a problem with offering the promotion then don't do it. I know I'd rather you offer nothing if you're going to give me a sub-par product in your promo.

Don't play with us Blizz. I give you your money (with which I have no problem doing) so don't play me.

Encrypted Text: Controlling tempo in PvP {WoW}

Jun 16th 2011 11:05AM If you want to break the habit of keyboard turning, but are like "Eh, I'll get to it one day," bind your A and D keys as strafe or ability keys. Then you HAVE to learn to stop AD turning.

Valor point awards for tier 12 bosses increased {WoW}

The Queue: I'll see your Deathwing, and raise you a **distracted by puppies** {WoW}

Jun 14th 2011 11:30AM What rut is that? Why can't you just PVP on your old toons? You know if you wait until 4.2, that's just wasted play time right? What's the point of waiting? It's a patch, not a new expansion. You're probably not going to have to completely relearn your class. SO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS!!!11!1!

Jun 14th 2011 11:27AM I suggest what Fingal said. A local brewery will usually have a wide variety of beer styles. This is a great place to get a baseline for your tastes for the different styles. In my experience, local/micro is probably going to better than its macro counterpart.

Patch 4.2 PTR patch notes update for June 13 {WoW}

Jun 14th 2011 11:21AM You can buy me an honorable cookie :)

Spiritual Guidance: Progression vs. farm, identifying the right raid spec {WoW}

Jun 13th 2011 7:48PM Dawn did a great job explaining how these pivotal talents can really up your ante, but I think that struggling preists shouldn't just stop there. Delve all the way into your tree and see what needs to be fixed.

As Dawn said, a lot of top level priests don't use the cookie cutter spec. I think that cookie cutter specs are great for getting a feel of your class, but once you get the ropes and understand how YOU play as a priest, you should analyze your talents. Go beyond those major talents listed above and really consider what talents are going to make you a better healer.

The Queue: Spite {WoW}

Jun 13th 2011 1:01PM I don't think people realize how short the comment section of the queue would be if people read it. This question has been answered numerous times.
