The Queue: I will not {WoW}

Dec 3rd 2011 1:58PM Whenever "Soon" is, I'll be happy as long as the new system has that fancy thing other forums have known as an edit button.

The Queue: Are we still having this conversation? {WoW}


Coincidentally, I have what I just wrote macroed into my Rainbow Generator trinket.

Robot Unicorn Attack FTW.

Phat Loot Phriday: Lightning Rod {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2011 10:08AM "He's true love" is obviously what Throgg was going to say about Lolegolas.

Tips for great success in the Raid Finder {WoW}

Dec 1st 2011 8:20PM I've done these fights on PTR, and really, all you need is a brain. If you have DBM, it's even simpler. Voice chat is completely unnecessary. As I've said before, one of the main reasons I quit formal raiding was because I preferred listening to music over a crowded vent channel filled with rude, obnoxious people. I don't want to have to go through that again with LFR. If I'm kicked for that, then so be it.

Cross-realm Real ID Battlegrounds now available {WoW}

Dec 1st 2011 7:18PM Coincidence perhaps? I'm pretty sure all the battlegroups were merged for both LFD and BGs quite some time ago (and, more recently, for arena).

Realm maintenance for Tuesday, Nov. 29 {WoW}

Nov 28th 2011 6:55PM Translation: The patch is tomorrow, so if you haven't used the background downloader yet, YOU ARE NOT PREPARED.

Drama Mamas: Love and marriage and WoW {WoW}

Nov 28th 2011 4:29PM @ Pyro:

He COULD be addicted to WoW, yes. However, given the information we have, it's equally possible that WoW is merely a symptom of the problem, rather than the problem itself. There could be issues with trust, intimacy, not enough in common, some other kind of incompatibility...WoW addiction is merely one possible cause of this situation. All we know is what Alone has told us, and it sounds like this problem existed prior to her - and possibly her husband - playing WoW.

Does that mean WoW is the problem? Maybe. But she doesn't mention addiction at all, nor does she mention him spending too much time in-game (she merely complains about him spending time in-game away from her) so it's equally possible it could be something entirely different. I think that's what Ninj is trying to say.

Drama Mamas: Love and marriage and WoW {WoW}

Nov 28th 2011 4:18PM Not extreme at all. As Blizzard has taught us all too well with certain class mechanics (cough, ret pallies, cough) bandaid solutions may help the problem for a little while, but they don't fix the root of it. Obviously, this woman (?) and her husband haven't worked out the issue(s) that led them to seek WoW as a solution, and making changes in WoW is only going to make the bandaid stay on a tiny bit longer.

So, I agree that they need to put aside WoW and talk about their issues (whatever they may be), get into counseling, spend some more quality time OUT of game together, or something. This is obviously not a WoW problem if it existed prior to them playing. Moving around some characters between guilds and doing more in-game stuff together isn't going to fix a marriage on the rocks - at least, not for long.

Blue posts and other WoW news: Patch 4.3 Raid Finder loot rules {WoW}

Nov 24th 2011 11:13AM One thing I'm curious about is if LFR will consider hit and expertise to be "tank stats". Because theoretically, certain combinations of stats on plate, like mastery/hit, mastery/expertise, or hit/expertise could be used by both DPS and tanks, the latter being for threat sets (not to mention that mastery is a great avoidance stat for both warrior and paladin tanks - not sure about DKs). I know threat won't be much of an issue anymore, and Blizzard has said that threat stats are "boring" for tanks at the moment, but still...will be interesting to see.

Healer druids and shamans may get screwed over sometimes judging from what they're saying, so I feel for them. At least my priest won't have to worry about mages and warlocks rolling against her on spirit gear...but then again there's only one spirit cloth drop from DS so that's not saying much >_< As usual, holy paladins will be the luckiest ones under this system.

Hopefully they'll deliver on their promise to refine the system in MoP, but until then, I think there will be some growing pains when it comes to the loot system in DS LFR.

Patch 4.3 PTR: Official (updated) patch notes {WoW}

Nov 22nd 2011 4:52PM Edit: Why is he being downvoted? MMO-Champ has said it'll be the 29th too, and their track record on patches is VERY good.
